Do aliens exist? The alien-themed K-drama Glitch might convince you to believe in one. So be prepared to dive deep into sci-fi conspiracies’ weird and wild world. In this Netflix Original, Ji-hyo, played by Jeon Yeo-been, can see the extraterrestrial. But when her boyfriend (portrayed by Lee Dong Hwi) disappears under mysterious circumstances, she will do whatever it takes to resolve the case. In pursuit of her search, she teams up with her childhood friend, Heo Bo-ra, a UFO enthusiast.
K-drama Glitch: The plot of the sci-fi series
Ji-hyo likes to reaffirm that she is rational and sensible because she can’t trust what she sees. Her world looks perfectly normal to outsiders because they are unaware of her occasional paranormal experiences. Ji-hyo has random alien sightings and receives mysterious messages from the media. Would the cops believe her if she admitted that she could see green men that resemble walking E.T. posters? Certainly, not! So naturally, she prefers to keep her eerie experiences a secret.
Ji-hyo joins forces with Heo Bo-ra and her UFO club buddies to track her boyfriend down. But as she continues her investigation, she realises she stepped on a potentially more dangerous conspiracy. So again, the team comes up with strange but oddly compelling ideas to reach her boyfriend. Of course, the aliens in Glitch are hardly as convincing as life forms, but their mysterious messages to Ji-hyo keep you hooked throughout the series.
