Why it’s worth your time:

As the upbeat theme plays over a bright montage of the young ensemble cast, you might think you’re in for nothing more than a bunch of crazy kids chasing their dreams. What emerges instead is a binge-worthy saga of love and revenge. Park Seo-joon – last seen in a minor role in Bong Joon Ho’s Oscar-winning Parasite – plays Park Saeroyi, a swoon-worthy young ex-convict driven to seek revenge as he rises to the top of the Korean food industry.  Saeroyi’s nemesis, the crafty old patriarch Jang Dae-hee, puts his underlings through difficult tests to find a worthy successor to the restaurant empire he isn’t quite ready to relinquish.

The takeaway:

Nothing is impossible if you follow your heart – and stand up for what you believe.

Watch it with:

Anyone undergoing Succession withdrawal.

Worth noting:

The last four episodes take a crazy swerve that might seem over-the-top – or perfectly melodramatic, depending on your tastes.
