Isn’t time flying too quick? It’s laborious to imagine that there are solely 4 episodes of “Taxi Driver” left proper now. The drama has been a lot enjoyable that six weeks glided by within the blink of a watch! As we’re nearing the finale, episodes 11-12 of “Taxi Driver” delivered turning factors and main reveals. There’s not a lot to snicker about in these episodes, that are actually intense and emotional, however we get loads of meals for thought as an alternative. Let’s take a better have a look at 4 issues we liked and two issues we hated about episodes 11-12.
Warning: spoilers for episodes 11-12 forward.
LOVED: Kim Do Gi reflecting on his actions
Although extremely cathartic, Rainbow Taxi blowing up Park Yang Jin (Baek Hyun Jin)’s information heart in episode 8 was a questionable act because it put individuals’s lives in peril, so I’m relieved that the drama addressed this problem in episode 11. The strains between a vigilante and a significant prison are blurry, and it doesn’t take a lot to cross over to the darkish aspect. Kim Do Gi (Lee Je Hoon), although, proves that he gained’t let himself be overcome by evil as he’s reflecting on his actions and setting himself some boundaries. It’s nice to see Kim Do Gi has realized that he was blinded by his thirst for revenge and is regretting what he did.
LOVED: Kang Ha Na and Kim Do Gi’s confrontation
The drama is lastly delving into the principle battle we’ve been ready for ever since Prosecutor Kang Ha Na (Esom) turned suspicious of the mysterious deluxe taxi. While Kang Ha Na represents the legislation, Kim Do Gi and his staff stand for the lawless, so the conflict was inevitable. During the tense face-off, each defend their respective standpoints with extremely provocative remarks that damage. Nonetheless, there’s some reality in their phrases, which is why they every ponder on their intentions and convictions after separating.
But the confrontation wasn’t solely rewarding for Kim Do Gi and Kang Ha Na, it additionally made us viewers suppose quite a bit. Whose model of justice is appropriate? Is there even such a factor as an accurate model? What could be one of the best punishment for criminals and the way might one obtain it?
To carry up the heavy temper, right here’s a GIF from the drama’s newest behind-the-scenes clip that reveals Lee Je Hoon stroking Esom’s hair after filming their face-off. It’s just too stunning and cute to not point out!
HATED: Wang Min Ho’s loss of life
Kang Ha Na is placed on a homicide case with out a physique, and whereas the offender is understood, they will’t convict him attributable to lack of proof. Ha Na thus makes a take care of an acquaintance of the offender and asks him to learn the way the sufferer’s physique disappeared. The acquaintance succeeds and calls Ha Na, however all of a sudden finds himself in a dire state of affairs and has to run for his life. Therefore, Ha Na and her assistant, Inspector Wang Min Ho (Lee Yoo Joon), rush over to the scene. Wang Min Ho arrives first, and when Ha Na arrives as properly, she discovers her assistant’s physique.
Inspector Wang’s loss of life took me unexpectedly, and it was completely heartbreaking to see Kang Ha Na so devastated. But on a constructive be aware, Esom actually obtained her second to shine, and this scene proves that she’s a prime actress along with her immersive efficiency.
LOVED: Kang Ha Na hiring Rainbow Taxi
Together with Wang Min Ho, Kang Ha Na’s pleasure and perception within the legislation additionally dies. It’s actually unhappy that it needed to come to this for her to present in to Kim Do Gi and his model of justice, however no less than we are able to say that her assistant’s loss of life wasn’t in useless because it marks a significant turning level for the prosecutor. She isn’t hostile in the direction of Kim Do Gi anymore and is now open to really take heed to him.
Once once more, the offender is understood, however there’s no proof, so Ha Na’s arms as a prosecutor are tied. Due to her hopeless state of affairs, she in the end turns to Kim Do Gi and asks Rainbow Taxi to avenge Wang Min Ho’s loss of life in her stead.
LOVED: Kang Ha Na apologizing to Kim Do Gi
Kang Ha Na, who needed to study the laborious method really empathize with crime victims, comes to comprehend what a deeply empathetic individual Kim Do Gi is and thus apologizes for her hurtful phrases throughout their earlier face-off. Through this, she reveals actual character energy, for she isn’t afraid to confess to her faults. I’m actually curious in regards to the vacation spot her character growth will lead her to. Will she enter a long-time cooperation with Rainbow Taxi and perhaps even be part of them for good? Or will she take motion to enhance the judicial system?
HATED: Baek Sung Mi’s betrayal
The offender of the homicide case with out a physique seems to be none apart from the dual brother of Loan Shark Baek Sung Mi (Cha Ji Yeon)’s right-hand man, Goo Seok Tae (Lee Ho Chul). When Rainbow Taxi finds out the merciless reality behind the lacking physique and discovers the hideout of the twins’ organ trafficking ring, Rainbow Taxi’s boss Jang Sung Chul (Kim Eui Sung) confronts the mortgage shark girl in regards to the state of affairs. Baek Sung Mi appears completely shocked about her assistant killing civilians for organ harvesting and vows to take revenge with Rainbow Taxi’s assist. But the top of episode 12 reveals her because the true mastermind behind every part as she methods Rainbow Taxi and flees, taking all of the criminals from her non-public jail along with her.
Baek Sung Mi’s laughter when she tells Jang Sung Chul the reality by means of the cellphone is really spine-chilling and makes one actually anxious about Rainbow Taxi’s destiny since she’s an actual menace to them. The mortgage shark girl is certainly a really robust antagonist, and it is going to be actually fascinating to see how Rainbow Taxi will deliver her down within the coming episodes.
