Taxi Driver 2 Episode 7 Review
Taxi Driver is all about different types of crimes that happen around us. It will astound you how much reality they have displayed.
Each episode brings a new story or issue, and the Rainbow crew has to take care of their new rivals every weekend in their own way. They have their own technique to tackle offenses and corruption.
Episode seven dealt with the subject of a powerful cult that became the reason for the misery of the families as their loved ones fought with an illness trapped in it. Their blind beliefs made them more pitiful.
As Do Gi and Sung Chul were busy with their case and other members had things to take care of. A new client named Lee Jin Hee approached them. Her elder sister had a fatal disease, but suddenly she started behaving strangely. Jin Hee later found out that her sister depended on a cult to heal her. She got a way to reach the Rainbow crew and asked for their help.
The Rainbow crew started their mission to save innocent patients from the cult and remove its greedy leader. Through this case, they came across the fact that how people blindly believe this thing and put everything into it. The crew used the UNO reverse card to make the leader taste his own medicine.
In this episode, Oh Han Jun also revealed his true identity, which he had been hiding since day one. His business in Cotaya and with Kang Pil Seung got taken down, which made him furious. Now Han Jun diverted his interest to the Rainbow crew and observed them closely. He seemed to be a cold businessman and a serial killer. This episode started the hunt between Do Gi and Han Jun.
The audience liked the role of Shin Jae Ha as Oh Han Jun in the series. He was truly remarkable, especially in those suits. Lee Jee Hoon as Kim Do Gi was no joke. The way he showed his humorous side and won the audience’s hearts is a grave crime. In the series, his action scenes were largely required. He was funny and cool at the same time.
Pyo Ye Jin also delivered an excellent performance. Ahn Go Eun was smart and strong, and Ye Jin depicted it well. Other supporting characters did their job perfectly. The show became a hit together with each character’s efforts and dedication.
As this episode exposed the villain, he wanted to know more about the Rainbow unit in-depth and disclosed their reason for their doings. Also, this episode gave a glimpse into his character, so it’s pretty sure the series will be interesting.
The ending left us a clue that Do Gi might know about the real identity of Han Jun. He also began attentively watching Han Jun and his actions.
Taxi Driver Season 2 is the type of show that relies on the strength of its episodic narrative and the chemistry of its core cast to flourish. You just can’t get over them and their humorous interactions and way of solving the case.
This series will take you on a tour of the rage, apprehension, and bleak reality of South Korea. And the cinematography is really impressive. The audience appreciated the efforts put in by the series’ storytelling and performances.
Episode seven depicted how people put blind faith in these cults and their leaders and how manipulative they could be.
There’s one dialogue expressed by Sung Chul in this episode about the cult that, The weaker the body and mind, the more susceptible and dependent they get, which is very veracious about it. It is a must-season to watch that is action-packed and amusing.
Our Rating: ⭐ (4.3/5).
