Directed by Jo Sung-hee (A Werewolf Boy, Phantom Detective), Space Sweepers finds four misfits who chase after valuable space debris and faraway dreams in the year 2092. Crewed with a genius space pilot Tae-ho (Song Joong-ki), a mysterious ex-space pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae-ri), a spaceship engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun-kyu), and a reprogrammed military robot Bubs (Yoo Hai-jin), Spaceship Victory surpasses all other space sweepers. After successfully snatching a crashed space shuttle in the latest debris chase, the crew finds a 7-year-old girl inside. They realize that she’s the humanlike robot wanted by UTS Space Guards and decide to demand ransom in exchange.
Netflix acquired the global streaming rights to the title after the film incurred delays on its assumed theatrical release in Korea’s domestic market during the summer blockbuster season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
