Netflix viewers have been left stunned by Korean series My Secret Terrius, which appeared to predict the coronavirus pandemic back in 2018.
People have been drawn to the final episode of the first series, which stars So Ji-sub, Jung In-sun, Son Ho-jun and Im Se-mi.
The episode shows a coronavirus being mutated to be used as a weapon, with a doctor desperate to find a cure.
‘Someone tweaked it to increase the mortality rate to 90%,’ she’s shown saying, after comparing coronavirus to MERS.
‘What’s more serious,’ she adds, ‘is that the coronavirus has an incubation period of two to 14 days.
‘The virus was manipulated to attack the lungs directly within just five minutes of being exposed.’ Reported by Metro

She goes on to say that there’s no cure available, with a later scene showing a class of children being taught how to wash their hands properly to avoid the spread of the virus.
The word ‘coronavirus’ has historically referred to a number of viruses, including the common cold before it was associated with Covid-19.
However, fans are nevertheless unnerved by the series. ‘In the drama My Secret Terrius that was released in 2018 (UNIQ’s sungjoo was among the cast) they talked in details about the corona virus…. I had goosebumps…,’ one viewer wrote.
Another added: ‘Just gonna leave this here but i am massively spooked. This series My Secret Terrius is on netflix but came out 2 years ago and talks about the coronavirus we’re going through rn…’
‘That scene in My Secret Terrius on Netflix about Coronavirus is scary…’ one more said.
