Just binged this in about 30 hours, loved it.  Concept is way out there, did feel a bit Money Heist with the red outfits and the feel of it, completely different in all other ways.  After Parasite a year or so a go, the Korean market share is increasing and getting some good airtime

Wasn't mad for the ending but it is setting up perhaps another season

It is brutal from the start!

Netflix btw

 

Is it a true story, do you know Jim?

Finished and I must say, great series.

 

Really enjoyed the show, something completely different and a great concept.

 

Not sure whether 2nd series will bring value but willing to give it a chance.

Been watching Sysiphus this last week or so, bit slower pace but good concept with the time travel, similar thing to Terminator obviously but very different action.

 

Another good Korean series though, Alice in Borderland was Japanese, my Netflix feed seems full of Asian offerings right now!

Waited until the hype went down a bit before watching. Finished it last night. First couple of episodes were good, the one with the bridge was good. Other than that it was only ok, definitely benefited from hype.

 

The policeman's brother and the 001 plots were obvious and it was a bit of a mess at the end.
