After last week's round up of news for romantic series, I need a little something to balance things off. Today I bring you revenge and death, although sadly not combined. "Buam-dong Avengers" drops some great teasers hinting at family drama. "While You Were Sleeping - 2017" and "Black" may share the element of predicting death, but the clear differences in focused genre cover different tastes. All in all, we have a promising upcoming drama season.
I was not sure what to make of "Buam-dong Avengers" before its promotion started and I was still largely unsure after the first teaser came up. Revenge is enough of a staple in Korean stories that it can take many forms tonally and genre-wise. The series has since released three character teasers and they paint a clearer picture. Our trio of finely cast vengeful ladies is not leading the thriller I would have liked, but the type of melodrama it does look like is sometimes scarier. I look forward to more goodies from it.
