> Hurt ! Revenge !! Relief Deluxe Taxi provides these services to all clients. This is the revenge drama we badly needed . It's not a typical revenge melodrama but a well constructed story/saga of real-life injustices that happen in the world. PLOT ------- The show depicts the reality of the justice system and offers satisfying revenge in each saga .. Forced Labour , Assaults & Bullying, Voice Phishing , Pornography and Human Trafficking . This show gives satisfaction at the end of each saga instead of waiting for 8 weeks to see the justice met. CAST ------ Lee Je-Hoon as KIm Do Ki was marvellous he switched b/w his base angry , hurt and sad taxi driver to cunning , jovious and deceptive avenger for his client ; he carried their pain and delivered the justice to his best. Kang Ha Na , an upright prosecutor who believe in the system and to some people she might be annoying but here role and principles were fully justified ; [spoiler] as she experience more injustice she starts wavering and finally becomes a member of the service [/spoiler] Pyo Ye-Jin , who replaced Lee Na Eun , as Go Eun has done great justice to such an tragic and emotional character under the facade of an lively teen . Remaining Taxi Members were always screwing up but were all wonderful in their roles MUSIC -------- After Vincenzo , Taxi Driver has the best OST of the year yet !! "SILENCE" by YB " A Walk " by Pyo Ye-JIn herself and "RUN AWAY" by Simon Dominic are my favourites. VERDICT ----------- If there was no Vincenzo ; taxi driver would have the best show of the Spring 2021. Despite the excellent story writing and breathing taking action scenes ; the show does suffer from very few Kdrama troupes . Special mention to cinematography and the screen editing. The background themes and the songs that give you goosebumps, uff! Fabulous direction, coordinated and well organized script. A bit disappointed with the endless product placements in the last 10 minutes. Also while fighting crimes the taxi drivers essentially become criminals themselves [spoiler] they were too easily let go and in the end they looked like doing a reformed justice by involving a prosecutor [/spoiler] and hopefully not breaking any more laws as that message needs to be carried ; otherwise revenge can get out-of-control The buttkicking scenes from Lee Je Hoon and also his all around personality his character were my favorite. But also the realness of cases that were presented in this drama as well.Let me just end this off with my favorite quote of this drama. >"Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good"
