TV Review: Taxi Driver (모범택시) (Action-Drama)

Taxi Driver (모범택시)
16 episodes
Lee Je-hoon, Esom, Kim Eui-sung

A former special forces soldier delivers revenge for victims of injustice while working for a secret organization that fronts as a taxi company. (Netflix Synopsis)

Taxi Driver was an entertaining drama with plenty of action and adventure. Its lead characters sit in a grey area morally speaking, which I found refreshing and interesting. The stunts and action sequences all looked good, and I liked the way each mini story line of 2-3 episodes played out against the overarching plot, and the way some of those mini stories eventually wove together for the finale. It has a fun, high-energy soundtrack, and I was amused by the constant product placement/in-scene ads. Many K-dramas feature one or two such moments, but this one was packed with them. It didn't bother me; in fact, it was fun for my husband and I to try to foresee each approaching ad and guess what the character's lines about it might be. All up, Taxi Driver is well worth a watch if you like high-action drama. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
