TV Review: Celebrity (2023) (Drama)

Celebrity (셀러브리티)
12 episodes

Fame. Money. Power. Seo A-ri achieves social media stardom overnight — but deadly consequences await in this glitzy, gilded world of influencers. (Synopsis)

Celebrity was a pretty decent drama. I thought it raised a lot of thought-provoking points about social media, stardom and anonymous haters. I was deeply invested at start; however, my attention dipped a little in the middle before being caught again as we headed towards the final showdown. However, I had a tiring week, so it could have been my mindset rather than a fault of the drama that caused the brief slump. Overall, I liked the performances, the 12-episode length felt generally right for telling the story without things dragging, and, as I've already said, it was a thoughtful tale. Yet, it's not a show I'd rush to re-watch or that I expect to find my mind revisiting in months to come, so I am giving it four stars.
