Why Is There Evil Only On Jeju Island?: Amazon Prime Video’s “Island”, a new K-Drama has been released recently on the streaming platform with its first two Episodes out in the first week. Based on the Webtoon of the same name, Island takes us on a mythical journey with demons and long-lost promises and it has all the elements for a good watch.

Starring Kim Nam-Gil, Lee Da-Hee, Cha Eun-Woo, and Sung Joon along with other actors, it tells the story of an island that has been taken over by evil and three people fight against that evil. If you’re curious about why specifically the island of Jeju is focused on in the K-Drama, you’re at the right place.


Island starts off with a mythical story of evil in the form of demons, specifically Lust Demons which are trying to take over Earth to stop them, God sends a saviour but that saviour gets killed by a man. To seal those evil/demons, the island of Jeju was created and evil was confined to that specific island but now, in the present, the evil has once started to increase and the demon is once again back.

The prophecy says that the saviour will once again come and kill the demon and that saviour is Won Mi-Ho played by Lee Da-Hee who comes from a family that runs a large company. On the island of Jeju, there’s Ban played by Kim Nam-Gil who is fighting the demons and killing them.

As said in the Drama, the Island was itself created to seal off the evil or demons so the world does not get corrupted of these demons such as the Lust Demon and to keep that and defeat the demons, the Buddhist monks capture the kids and turn them into hybrids, making Ban one of them as we see his journey and what he has become.

The Prophecy says that there’s a saviour which can kill off all evil but she gets killed by a man and now the saviour has once again been born in the name of Won Mi-Hoo and the fate of her and Ban again intertwine.
