Taxi Driver Season 1: Summary

“The Deluxe Taxi,” a Carlos and Lee Jae-in webtoon, served as the inspiration for Taxi Driver Season 1. Almost all incidents shown in the series were influenced by horrible crimes that happened in South Korea.

The first season of Taxi Driver followed Jang Sung Chul’s Rainbow Taxi as they pursued their goals. They took matters into their own hands and started punishing criminals according to their principles while also helping others who were unable to obtain justice through democracy.

The main team of Ahn Go Eun, Park Jin Eon, and Choi Kyung Goo, led by Kim Do Gi (Lee Je Hoon), started hunting criminals while escaping the grasp of the lawyer Kang Ha Na. After the encounter with Baek Sung Mi, Jang Sung Chul was deceived; nevertheless, Kim Do Gi eventually caught her and turned her over to the prosecution after she was found guilty of heinous crimes.
