A Tale of Revenge Unfolds
Buckle up, drama enthusiasts! There’s a thrilling new Korean series coming to Disney+, and it’s about to take you on a rollercoaster ride of vengeance and justice. Vigilante is set to premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 8, and it’s not your typical K-drama.
Vigilante’s Dark Premise
Picture this: A criminal, with a history drenched in violence, gets a shockingly light sentence after brutally taking the life of a woman. It’s a chilling scenario, but it’s the very premise of Vigilante.
Growing Up with a Grudge
After witnessing this miscarriage of justice, the woman’s child, Kim Jiyong, grows up with a burning desire for revenge. He’s had enough of a legal system that fails to protect the innocent and lets repeat offenders roam free.
Revenge Meets Dedication
Jiyong decides to channel his anger into something productive. He becomes a star student at the police academy, a martial arts master, and an academic aficionado. Why? To hunt down those unrepentant repeat offenders who have slipped through the cracks of the justice system.
Justice with a Dark Twist
But here’s where it gets intense: Jiyong doesn’t rely on the courts to deliver justice. No, he dishes out his brand of violent retribution. It’s a dark twist that sets Vigilante apart from your typical dramas.
The Cat and Mouse Game
As Jiyong’s crusade against crime unfolds, the media catches wind of his vigilante attacks. Suddenly, he’s thrust into a high-stakes cat and mouse game. Can he continue pursuing criminals while avoiding the clutches of the law himself?
