The CBS All Access series boasts an all-star cast including Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani and John Cho each starring in their own one-off episodes telling individual tales of paranormal fantasy and horror.

It has been a good year for Yeun who wrapped voicing one of the main characters of Voltron as the Netflix animated series completed its eighth and final season this month. Additionally, Yeun has starred in this year's South Korean film Burning which was nominated for the Palm d'Or at Cannes and led to the actor being nominated and winning various critics' choice and film society awards around the world.
