From the first episode I was hooked. I have never seen any drama like this before. Its quality, plot and characters are that of a Hollywood movie, but so much better because we can watch 20 episodes of it!
Plus 16 episodes with the amazing Lee Seung Gi!
Lee Seung Gi said in an interview for Hancinema “My body was exhausted from all the movement, but I was super energetic. I think a second season would be fun and I understand the writers are working on it“. He went to action school for 3 months and besides the 3 hours of training, he built his strength with CrossFit.
This is the drama to show someone who is otherwise not interested in Korean dramas. I don’t know how are they did it, but the tension will keep you at the edge of your seat! Believe me, I couldn’t help but pause from time to time to catch my breath (and to finish my food that’s gone cold). There is no new episodes this weekend sadly, we have to wait another week for the ending, so if you haven’t watched it yet it’s time to catch up with the episodes.
Vagabond joins the best parts of a Hollywood action movies and Korean dramas to create this action packed plot, with clever twists and well written characters. It instantly draws you in with its beautifully shot scenes. From episode one every action scene is very impressive. Not just the action though, the story flows naturally and with a great rhythm. I cannot recommend it enough.
A mysterious plane crash kills over 200 civilians, including Cha Dal Gun’s (Lee Seung Gi) nephew. Determined to find out the truth behind the accident, Cha Dal Gun embarks on an investigation that leads him to a tangled web of corruption. His life intertwines with Go Hae Ri (Bae Suzy), a covert operative for the National Intelligence Service.
