An action-packed drama with a hot male lead and a kick ass heroine is a sure way to grab my attention. And upcoming Netflix original series Vagabond definitely has all those elements to offer and more!
This 40-episode drama is sure to put a smile on your face if you’ve been a fan of Gu Family Book couple, Lee Seung Gi and Bae Suzy because the pair are reuniting for this epic series. Lee Seung-gi plays Cha An Bul, a stuntman who was once just a simple man with big dreams of becoming a huge action star. All that changed after he survives a plane crash that killed 211 civilians, including his young nephew.
Fueled by grief, Cha An Bul embarks on an investigation to uncover the truth behind the so-called accident, deadset on making the people responsible for his nephew’s death pay dearly even at the cost of his own life. Little did he know that he’ll find himself in the middle of a national corruption case.
Cha An Bul crosses paths with Go Hae Ri, portrayed by Bae Suzy, a covert operative for the National Intelligence Service. She was originally sent to go after him but we’ll see how the two of them will end up working together to expose the people accountable for the chaos.
The series’ teaser gives us a glimpse of what to expect: thrilling scenes and dangerous stunts you can find in any good action movie worth its salt that are bound to make your excitement levels shoot up.
I love the fact that the main lead is an emotional wreck going through survivor’s guilt because it only means that he is even more determined to catch those bad guys. What I’m also curious about is how he will manage to convince a dedicated black ops agent, who sees him as an enemy, to choose his side. Gah, I’m already jumping to a lot of conclusions here.
Anyway, it’s really good to see Lee Seung Gi team up once more with Bae Suzy because their chemistry in Gu Family Book was fantastic. The cast also includes Shin Sung Rok, Kim Min Jong, Moon Jung Hee, and Baek Yoon Shik.
I know it’s bad to expect too much since it means I’m just setting up myself for a huge disappointment but whatever, I’m just hoping the show will be as exciting as its teaser!
