Netizens react to Parasyte: The Grey

Netflix has finally dropped the highly anticipated science-fiction and horror series Parasyte: The Grey. Fans are awe-struck by the well-paced execution and multi-layered narrative of the Korean adaptation and are giving rave reviews for the mind-boggling plot. Many hailed lead actress Jeong Su-in for her intriguing character, Jeon So Nee, as she nailed two personalities (parasite and human) with perfect voice modulation.

“Jeon Sonee is playing two characters with two different voice tone in Parasyte the Grey... the excellent actress that she is,” one user wrote.

Other users showered love on the web series by calling it binge-worthy and enjoyable. “Finished watching parasyte the grey and it was definitely an enjoyable watch. i went in with no expectations only to find myself drawn to the story, a well paced plot with great acting,” another netizen shared.  

Fans also gave thumbs up to the smart storyline that showcased the parasites as witty creatures who hatched plans to outsmart human hosts by teaming up for their shared motive.  “The thing that made Parasyte the Grey even more fun is that these parasites weren't just dumb creatures with the only motto to kill randomly anyone on sight but they teamed up, made plans, and outsmarted everyone, which made the story even more interesting and challenging,” another social media user reacted to the series.

While it is not clear if the series is officially renewed for a second season, the cliffhanger ending of season 1 and Masaki’s cameo hint at a possible renewal.
