“Taxi Driver” Cast Share Their Affection For The Drama In Closing Comments
The cast of SBS’s “Taxi Driver,” which is set to air its final episode on May 29 at 10 p.m. KST, shared their closing comments on the drama.
“Taxi Driver” is a drama about a mysterious taxi service that delivers justice and revenge on behalf of victims who cannot get help from the law.
Lee Je Hoon, who starred as former special forces officer and Rainbow Taxi’s representative driver Kim Do Gi, said, “I still can’t believe that ‘Taxi Driver’ is coming to an end. First, I want to thank all the viewers who sent us their love until now. Personally, I would really like the entire production staff of ‘Taxi Driver,’ and all the characters including prosecutor Kang Ha Na, to come back together and continue the stories of Rainbow Taxi.”
Esom, who played the passionate and justice-oriented prosecutor Kang Ha Na, said, “Thank you for loving ‘Taxi Driver’ and Kang Ha Na. I was happy to be able to appear in such a great project. I also had a lot of fun working with good people on set and learned a lot. I think that ‘Taxi Driver’ will stay with me as a project I’ll remember for a long time. It’s a difficult time right now, so I was happiest to hear that people got a sense of refreshment from watching ‘Taxi Driver.’ Thank you again, and I hope everyone stays healthy.”
Kim Eui Sung, who played Rainbow Taxi’s CEO Jang Sung Chul, said, “Thank you to the viewers, who sent us a shocking amount of love and support.” On his personal social media account, he wrote humorously, “It felt awkward for me to play a role for the first time in a while that didn’t get me cursed out [by viewers].”
Pyo Ye Jin, who played the hacker Ahn Go Eun, said, “I went through a lot of heartache while living as Rainbow Taxi’s Go Eun, but I also felt proud and had fun. I’m grateful to have worked with such great people. This drama will stay with me as a special project for which I had a lot of affection. Thank you to everyone who cheered on ‘Taxi Driver’ and Go Eun.”
Cha Ji Yeon played Baek Sung Mi, the godmother of the financial world and Rainbow Taxi’s business partner, who turns out to be the show’s final villain. She said, “First, I want to thank the viewers who loved ‘Taxi Driver.’ Even though Baek Sung Mi is a strong, villainous character that hasn’t appeared before in other dramas, people showed a lot of interest in her, so I’m grateful. A lot of people came to talk to me about the role even while I was filming the drama, so I was a bit flustered, but I also had a lot of fun working on it. I’m glad to have worked with these directors, writers, staff, and cast members on a great project. I think that my next role will be on the stage. I hope that the world will become a place where ordinary people, rather than villains, are happiest.”
Jang Hyuk Jin, who played the engineering genius Choi Kyung Goo, said, “Thanks to the viewers’ love, we were able to have fun filming. Thank you very much for staying with and supporting ‘Taxi Driver’ until the end. I will return with more projects in the future. I love you!”
Bae Yoo Ram, who played the multitalented auto expert Park Jin Eon, said, “Filming felt like it would never end, but now it’s over. I still can’t believe that ‘Taxi Driver’ is in its final episode. We were able to finish filming safely due to the efforts of the director, writer, the cast, and the production staff, and I won’t forget the fun moments we shared on set. Finally, thank you to all the viewers who loved and supported ‘Taxi Driver.'”
In a separate interview, Bae Yoo Ram said, “It feels like the first shoot was just yesterday, but it’s already the final shoot. It feels strange to say the word ‘final,’ and I wish time would stop right here. I want to share my sincere gratitude to the director, writer, cast, and crew for all their hard work until now.”
