“Cha Dal-Geon (Lee Seung-Gi) is a stunt man who dreams of becoming a world-famous action actor. His career is floundering, while he tries to take care of his nephew as his guardian. His nephew takes a flight from Incheon to Morocco for a taekwondo exhibition, but the flight crashes. In Morocco, Cha Dal-Geon sees someone in public that was a passenger on the fatal flight. He becomes convinced that someone or some group sabotaged his nephew’s flight.
Go Hae-Ri (Bae Suzy) is an NIS agent and is currently working undercover at the Korean embassy in Morocco. She is tasked by the embassy to help the bereaved families from the fatal flight. Cha Dal-Geon turns to Go Hae-Ri for help in finding the man he saw in Morocco who was a passenger on the flight. Soon, Cha Dal-Geon and Go Hae-Ri uncover a far darker and more sinister conspiracy than they expected.”
Vagabond is a drama with top-notch action from episode 1 to 16. I think no one can argue about that. The action scenes and even the filming locations are almost comparable to Hollywood movies. Cinematography-wise, it’s astounding and with very good production value. The characters are well-made and the acting was on point. Lee Seung gi is just an amazing actor and this drama is absolutely for him.
Plot-wise is common about politics, corruption, bribery, power and unimaginable things that might happen in the real world. But what makes it different from typical drama is the intensity of it and the obvious twist that you still can’t resist watching. The story is deeper than what can depict.
The finale raised to some comments for both positive and negative. I am good for the result. I find writing intelligent enough to show us what is a reality. But still, I am rooting for Season two.
Overall, I would recommend this action drama. You will absolutely enjoy it.
