All of us are dead
Zombies, a high school and a few survivors… That’s what perfectly sums up this horrific series. Available on Netflix since January, All of us are dead has conquered the hearts of viewers who were not necessarily initiated into kdramas. Adapted from the webtoon Now at our School, the tension is omnipresent and increases when we realize that death can be found at the bend of a corridor. Like the movie Last Train to Busan, the undead are particularly fierce. A tip, if you discover this series: do not get too attached to the characters! The adventure and survival with the enraged zombies is far from over, because a season 2 is planned!
As for the thrillers of 2022, what do we have? The Big Mouth Series! A lawyer with a very low success rate and being much too talkative, finds himself in spite of himself in a murder case. Accused of being a famous Korean crook, his wife comes to his aid in an attempt to clear her husband’s name. With breathless tension, this crime drama has the merit of not being predictable, leaving the viewer in complete suspense until the end! Its cast is excellent, especially with actress Yoona, member of the K-pop group Girls Generation.
Decision to leave
How to evoke Korean cinema without evoking a work by Park Chan-wook (Old Boy)? We were lucky in 2022, because the last film by this famous director and screenwriter dates back to 2016 with Mademoiselle. This year, his film Decision to leave is in the spotlight! An investigation by a police officer into the suspicious death of a man at the top of a mountain leads him to meet the wife of the deceased. Even if she is suspected, his attraction to her will cloud his investigation.. Visually sumptuous, Decision to leave does not disappoint! Its originality lies in its puzzle-like narration where the scenes follow one another without there being any particular links between them.
Legal kdramas are legion, but Juvenile Justice has stood out. Highlighting a harsh judge who loathes youth and more particularly young offenders, who is assigned to the Department of Juvenile Justice. She will not hesitate to punish this deviant youth more and more severely. The main characters are endearing and the cast is excellent., especially with the cold judge who has a crazy charisma. None of the characters is fundamentally good or bad, which makes it a series on the complexity of human beings, in particular via the determinisms of each one. You will understand, this is an excellent title, available on Netflix!
Still on the film side, Seoul Vibe sets the bar very high. Set in the late 1980s when Seoul is set to host the Summer Olympics, a team of pilots and mechanics accept a mission that asks them to infiltrate a money laundering ring. Tension and car racing are on the agenda in Seoul Vibe. Available on Netflix, this series is a breath of fresh air that knows how to handle action and comedy.
The Round Up
Let’s finish our selection with The Round Up. This is the sequel to The Outlaws, set 4 years after the events of that movie. Chases, suspense and police investigations are on the agenda. Humor is also present in this sequel which features a detective with unconventional methods. The combat and chase scenes are particularly breathtaking.
In a much more fantastic register, Tomorrow stages a young unemployed man who, following an accident, becomes half-human and half-spirit. He meets an agent of the mower who offers him to join his organization. Their missions? Save people from suicide. This merry team is made up of real angels of death and each episode traces the past and the story of the person concerned. A very good quality series available on Netflix.
