TV Review: Psychopath Diary (2019) (Thriller-Comedy)

Psychopath Diary (싸이코패스 다이어리)
16 episodes
Yoon Shi Yoon, Jung In Sun, Park Sung Hoon

Security analyst Yook Dong-sik witnesses a murder. He grabs the murderer's diary and flees. However, he accidentally gets hit by a car, experiences memory loss, and the diary in his possession makes him think he is the culprit. (Synopsis)

I loved Psychopath Diary so much that by the time I reached the midway point in the series I had already ordered the DVD, so I could re-watch it whenever I wished. The series was a perfect blend of thriller-action and comedy, and Yoon Shi-yoon's performance as Dong-sik was riveting, even if it was Park Sung-hoon as Seo In-woo who stole my heart. The plot was enormous fun and the entire series was well paced and well executed in all aspects. It definitely sits in my Top Ten K-dramas of all time, and might even edge into the top five. If you like both serial killer thrillers and quirky comedy, Psychopath Diary is definitely a show for you. I have already penned one fan fiction piece on it and am considering another, and I'm currently working on a drawing of the characters too. That's how much I loved this, so, of course, it gets 5 stars from me.
