A trigger warning to all viewers, this is not for the weak at heart. The source material consists of gore, rape, pedophilia, and many other disturbing themes. Considering that it is airing on SBS they will tone it down, but better to be safe than sorry.
Where It All Begins
Serial Killers, scammers, bloodsucking bosses, corrupt officers, and whatnot. Various kinds of criminals exist out of whom most don’t even get to pay for their crimes. The core cast of a Taxi driver has made it their aim to hunt down these scums.
“Don’t die, Get Revenge, We will do it for you.” is the tagline for the deluxe taxi service designed for revenge. Owned and operated by Sung Cheol, a victim himself it looks like an ordinary taxi service from outside.
But a special underground area with a total of 5 dedicated members, including him it works for their secret service. Dok-Ki, who also lost his mother to a criminal is uninterested at first but Sung encourages him. And so he joins the group in serving justice.
The aim is to catch these criminals and reform them in their style. In the first episode, they catch a sexual predator who seems to regret nothing even after leaving jail. Putting them in Chairwoman Baek’s lair from where escape is unlikely.
Of course, this is not good news for the prosecutor in charge. Ha Na is a righteous prosecutor who wants criminals behind the bars. She grows suspicious of the deluxe taxi. It turns out her boss plans to send her to Sung to work with him!
Meanwhile, they get a call and a new mission. This time it’s an intellectually differently-abled girl named Maria who was abused and exploited by her employers. Turns out not just the employers, but also the job finder and police were involved in the mess.
Be it the sexual predator or this lowlife Jeotgal factory owner who abused employees, the taxi guys wrap them up in the same way! Fooling them into either getting into the taxi or catching them off guard and breaking their bones. Dok & Co are flawless and make it so satisfying to watch.
The innocent feel relieved while the evil finally gets judged. While they rot in Baek’s possession, Ha Na draws closer to the truth behind the taxi service. What will happen once she finds out about their unlawful methods? Will she support them or not?
Find out in Taxi Drivers episode 3.
