Annyeong! How are my fellow Korean fans doing? K-Dramas always win the hearts of all with the release of each new series. No matter how much or many you watch, the addiction can never leave you and once you get into it, there is no coming back. Wait, I am not scaring you guys or anything. Just telling you that if you are new to this, then Pali, start streaming now. With passing years Korea is creating more and more interesting shows which are available here, in India and you can also stream them on various platforms. So, better take my advice and start binge-watching folks.
Did you watch Taxi Driver? I am hoping you did. If not, then don’t worry I am here. Let me share with you what the drama is about.
Taxi Driver (2021)
The drama made its debut in April 2021 and completed its air by May 2021. The South Korean TV series runs for only one season with 16 episodes, runtime being 1 hr and 15 mins each. It’s one of the most-watched K-dramas since its release. The drama received a rating of 8.8 from My Drama List (MDL) and 8.2 from IMDb. The action crime drama is available on Viki Rakuten, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Videos. Based on a Web-toon I would suggest giving this one a definite watch.
Long story short, the drama narrates the life of a deluxe Taxi driver and the incident that follows. Do Gi lived an honest life but suddenly his mother gets cruelly assassinated. With blood boiling in revenge, he joins an organization that promises to kill and avenge the families whom the law couldn’t protect. Along with Do Gi, other members work together to solve the cases that the court fails to.
