Based on a webtoon of the same name, it follows an ex-con and his friends and their fight to make their ambitious dreams of their own street bar a reality. So, with that, here are a few reasons why you should watch Itaewon Class! When people think of K-drama, they usually think of love stories or romantic drama. At its core, Itaewon Class is a story about revenge, about finding family amongst the people around you, and about fighting greed, power, discrimination, inequality in social class, and more. Itaewon Class has complex and interesting characters that will have you invested in no time. Park Saeroyi is an ex-con, the underdog. He has been broken down and wronged so many times, yet he continues to live by what he thinks is right. Oh Soo-ah, on the other hand, is an independent woman who made a name for herself. Supporting characters also have their own stories to tell and their arcs are never neglected. Instead, every character was fleshed out and we see them all grow and develop throughout the show.
A magical alchemy occurs when the right elements come together in a Korean drama — a balance between the beautiful and the unbelievable. And as the kids say, a bop is a bop. The central narrative is a revenge plot revolving around Park Saeroyi, a proud, almost irritatingly dignified young man with a spine of steel and the haircut of a chestnut.
