Beyond Evil


This K-drama beat out heavy hitters It’s Okay To Not Be Okay and Vincenzo at the 2021 Baeksang Awards. When a young woman is murdered in a similar fashion to a cold case from twenty years earlier, a small town is turned upside down with suspicion, secrets, and revelations. Unlike many popular K-dramas, Beyond Evil doesn’t include a love triangle or much comic relief. This is a darker piece for mature audiences. The ensemble cast is terrific, led by Shin Ha-kyun (Best Actor winner) as suspect-turned-detective Lee Donsik.

Quick Takes

From Greg Wheeler at The Review Geek:

Beyond Evil is a great example of how to take a simple concept and absolutely run with it. Between the exemplary acting, tight writing and numerous twists and turns along the way, this Korean drama is easily one of the best shows of the year. It’s hardly surprising then that it’s been nominated for 7 Baeksang Awards. Full Review
