Taxi Driver

What an amazing drama. Great cast, great plot, great directing. I think this drama is well prepared and written. Based on a popular webcomic The Deluxe Taxi, this drama hits high rating when it airs.

“Don’t Die, Get Revenge” stickers are pasted everywhere near Han River Bridge where some people (most probably) want to suicide. Rather than die, The Taxi Driver squad called Rainbow Taxi Driver help them get revenge. Kim Do Ki (Lee Je Hoon) a former special forces officers, Ahn Go eun (Pyo Ye Jin) is an IT genius, Choi Kyung Koo (Jang Hyuk Jin) and Park Jin Eon (Bae Yoo Ram) as engineers, lead by Jang Sung Chul (Kim Eui Sung), they work in Ranbow Taxi Driver Revenge team. But not only the Rainbow team, there’s also Kang Hana, the prosecutor who has integrity and then has relation to the Rainbow team.

Beyond Evil

Never say too late to post about this good drama. Won 3 awards at 2021 Baeksang Arts Awards: Best Drama; Best Screenplay; Best Actor; Beyond Evil is superb. I’m not a thriller fan but this drama is seriously awesome in my opinion.

Starring Shin Ha Kyun, a famous veteran actor and Yeo Jin Goo a young experienced also promising actor, this drama is very well written and directed. Shin Ha Kyun portrays the character Lee Dong Sik very well and Yeo Jin Goo (as Han Joo Won) is awesome too. Acting with Shin Ha Kyun I believe influences him to act deeper than his usual acting which is already good + good script.

A Love So Beautiful

Based on a popular Chinese Series with the same title, A Love So Beautiful (2017), the Korean Version is seemingly lighter than the original one. Airing in kakaotv and netflix, this drama uses Kim Jong Kook’s song Loveable (2005) as the opening song, now covered by SinB from GFriend. It sounds so fresh and young.

She Would Never Know

She Would Never Know is a love story about a young good looking man who’s in love with his senior based on a novel “Sunbae, Geu Lipstick Bareujimayo” by Elise (asianwiki). I think it’s a pure romance with the background cosmetic company. Chae Hyun Seung (Rowoon) is a marketer in KLAR cosmetics. He likes his senior (Sunbae), Yoon Song A (Won Jin A), who tutors him well and has promising career in the company. But while chasing his love, Hyun Seung finds out that Sunbae’s secretly dating their boss.
