TV Review: Happiness (2021) (Horror-Drama)

Happiness (해피니스)
12 episodes
Han Hyo-joo, Park Hyung-sik

Residents of a high-rise building fight for survival when a deadly disease breaks out and turns the infected into blood-lusting zombies. (Netflix Synopsis)

Happiness was another pleasing Korean zombie offering, and "pleasing zombie offering" are words I never imagined myself saying before I started watching K-drama. With only a couple of exceptions, I've never liked zombie movies/series. However, I am happy to watch the Korean take on the genre, because in these films and series, the emphasis is not on horror and scares, but rather on the emotional drama and the characters. Happiness was another good example of that, and I enjoyed the performances from the main cast members. The pacing slowed a little once or twice, but mostly the action moved along well and held my interest throughout. It gets 4 stars from me.
