In episode 3 of Beyond The Romance Drama Recap, Carolyn shares her thoughts on K-dramas Vincenzo and Taxi Driver following their finales, as well as Law School, Love is Science?, Mr. Honesty, and a few of the other dramas she’s currently watching.
Starring Song Joong- ki as the titular character Vincenzo Cassano, Jeon Yeo-bin (Night in Paradise), Ok Taecyeon, Kwak Dong-yeon, and a brilliant and entertaining supporting cast, Vincenzo is the perfect mix of action, drama, and comedy, that will be an enjoyable watch for most. While the finale did have it’s sad moments, the overall plot development perfectly suited the story set up from the beginning, with many small moments from throughout the season paying off with one of the best-executed revenge plots I’ve seen in a long.
Though a difficult watch at times, Taxi Driver is a suspenseful show with a plot that revolves around real life legal cases from South Korea. Lead by Lee Je-hoon as Kim Doo-ki, the Rainbow Taxi crew take justice into their own hands when the judicial system meant to protect the innocent and victimized, fails those that need it most. I must point out that some scenes and dialogue detailing suicide, bullying, violence, sexual assault may be triggering for some.

Vincenzo – Netflix
Law School – Netflix
Mine – Netflix
Taxi Driver – Viki
Dark Hole – Viki
