Contemporary South Korean Television Series – A Brief Review

Black_(TV_series)-posterI have become intrigued watching these South Korean television series available on Netflix as of 25-Feb-2018:

Bad Guys – bad cop recruits team of bad guys he put in jail to put really bad guys out of circulation.

Black – multi-arced supernatural / crime mystery with romances and bad guys.

Argon – power of (positive) media vs. corruption.

A Man Called God – 007 in East Asian guise.

Common elements in these series include: high production values, humor, drama, romantic tension, views of another land and culture, Korean dialogue with English subtitles, and did I mention multiple arcs and twisty plots ..

Bad Guys (TV Series) – 2014
Black (TV Series) – 2017
Argon (TV Series) – 2017
A Man Called God – 2010
