Watch: Lee Je Hoon And Esom Clash As They Both Strive For Justice In Revenge Drama “Taxi Driver”
SBS’s upcoming drama “Taxi Driver” has shared an intriguing teaser video!
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Taxi Driver” is about a mysterious taxi service called Rainbow Taxi, where the employees take revenge on behalf of clients who cannot get help from the law. It is being directed by Park Joon Woo and written by Oh Sang Ho, and it stars Lee Je Hoon, Esom, Kim Eui Sung, and more.
The quick-witted former special forces soldier Kim Do Gi (Lee Je Hoon) is the main player in Rainbow Taxi’s revenge missions, and his many skills include stunt driving, hand-to-hand combat, and disguise. The new teaser video opens with him heading on a mission, and he slips on sunglasses before getting in his taxi, which ascends to the street from underground through a hidden lift disguised to look like an ordinary lawn. His cab smoothly guides through a sudden U-turn, thanks to his driving expertise. Kim Do Gi is heard asking someone, “Will you tell me? About the injustice that makes you wish you were dead?”
Jang Sung Cheol (Kim Eui Sung) is the leader of the Rainbow Taxi team and the CEO of the Blue Bird Foundation, an organization that helps victims of crime. A born leader with warm people skills, Jang Sung Cheol uses his position with the foundation to maintain his public image and network with prosecutors to obtain inside information that’s useful in exacting revenge for Rainbow Taxi’s clients.
Jang Sung Cheol and Kim Do Gi climb into a wardrobe that’s really a secret entrance to an underground tunnel. In another scene, Jang Sung Cheol sits across from someone and tells them earnestly, “I don’t ever forgive. Won’t you come take revenge with me?”
The clip reveals Rainbow Taxi’s underground hideout and gives a glimpse of other members of the team: IT specialist and hacker Ahn Go Eun (Pyo Ye Jin) and the engineering duo Choi Kyung Goo (Jang Hyuk Jin) and Park Jin Uhn (Bae Yoo Ram). They help Kim Do Gi as he rounds up the bad guys.
The teaser poses the question: “Is he a new hero, or is he another bad guy?” Kim Do Gi gets in a car chase with the cops and fights against groups of villains, walking away bloody but victorious from a fight that’s left his opponents on the ground. Jang Sung Cheol also leaves behind a car engulfed in flames.
Meanwhile, passionate prosecutor Kang Ha Na (Esom) is growing suspicious of both Kim Do Gi and the unusual taxi service. Kim Do Gi asks her, “Isn’t it a good thing for society if the bad guys are being hunted?” She replies, “It’s only a good thing if they disappear within the confines of the law. Otherwise, it’s just another crime being committed.” As Kim Do Gi and the Rainbow Taxi team continue to get revenge for their clients, Kang Ha Na is on their trail.
The teaser also gives a glimpse of the powerful Baek Sung Mi (Cha Ji Yeon) in action as the so-called “godmother” of the underground finance world.
