20Save Me (OCN, 2017)
The story of four young men who is jobless then by fate met a woman in distress. The woman says “save me”. and there revealed that the girl is involved with a group of heretical religions.
The drama is based on a web series titled Sesang Bakeuro by Jo Geum-San (published from June 21, 2011 to January 16, 2013). The story is quite heavy, telling about social life, a group of religious from the front looks good but actually plunged the congregation. A group of suspicious deviant and exist in a small town. Im Sang Mi and her family moved from Seoul. After arriving in the city they just realized that they have been cheated by her friend. The family was forced to live beside the cow shed. As a newcomer, which is directly seen by the head of the church administration, they got good treatment and is given a decent place to live. Seeing the goodness of the church Sang Mi feel something strange and do not believe the church, but she still follow because her family is indebted. One day she began to realize about the heresy and asked 4 people who were her high school friends to save her from the group’s trap.
The drama touch too many thing in one hand, the distribution of concept and scene was great, the intention and the plotline is super great as well. The execution was superb and I still kinda enjoy it, due to the moral point indebted to the story.
I think this drama is scarier than horror drama, imagine you are in the same situation as Seo Ye Ji in this drama, it’s really thrilling. Watch it yourself.
