Revenge of Others Korean Drama Review. Revenge of Others is a K-drama set in the world of South Korean high school students. No teen brawls, but stories with substance and depth. It offers both sad and very hot social issues, see more below!
Synopsis and Plot Summary
Revenge of Others is set in a school where many students face cases of bullying without being able to fight back.
Once upon a time, a boy was killed at school, but Ok Chan Mi doesn’t believe that it was her twin brother, Park Won Seok, who killed himself.
She then transfers to her brother’s school, Yongtan High School, and there meets Ji Soo Heon, a cool guy, who also had to witness his older brother’s death.
During that time a “hero”, who seeks revenge on students he bullied, appears in Yongtan High School. He would pay back all the bad treatment he deserved and couldn’t care less even if they were girls.
Chan Mi then started to speculate that she might be related to her brother and started looking for this hero.
Revenge of Others Ending Explained
Revenge of Others has a happy ending. At the end of the episode, the students start discussing whether Soo Heon will be arrested now.
But when Minha heard the news, she broadcast a message to all the students saying that the hero who beat up her rapper was Soo Heon, and she asked them to support her.
The students begin spreading rumors about Osung’s terrible behavior and how he ought to be disciplined as soon as this message gains popularity.
The pupils quickly learn that Osung gaslighted Jae Bom into killing Won Seok, which led to his incarceration.
When the detectives questioned the pupils, each one of them claimed falsely that Osung was alone when he fell and that he most likely leaped by himself.
Even though the detectives are aware of their lies, they are powerless to coerce them into giving testimony.
Soo Heon is now liberated, but he decides to forgo his education in order to enjoy his uncertain existence.
Chan Mi joins the Marine Corps as a non-commissioned officer after finishing high school. Despite choosing divergent careers, Chan Mi and Soo Heon remain partners and encourage one another.
Revenge of Others Review
“Revenge of Others” is a drama set in the world of South Korean high school students. No teen brawls, but stories with substance and depth.
With flexibly intertwined subplots, it offers both sad and very warm social issues. They deal with it in a way that is lively, interesting, sensitive, and touching. Should you watch it? Yes!
“Revenge of Others” (like “Weak Hero Class 1” in 2022) tackles the topic of mobbing/bullying. For me, it has been very helpful to better understand the special and increasingly dramatic situation surrounding bullying in South Korean schools, which can even lead to suicide.
This K-drama highlights a Seoul high school where there appears to have been a suicide. Everyone was shocked and some knew more but kept silent.
If the victim’s sister who had lived apart from her brother for years didn’t try to solve it, then this would be a sad case of suicide without end.
Perhaps too often it happens in one way or another that fundamental questions in seemingly obvious cases are left unanswered. However, this K-drama boldly wants to reveal its problems and circumstances – here as Ok Chang-mi.
As is so often the case in bullying contexts, adults don’t look too kind and offer nothing that promises to change fatal peer group dynamics or help them.
They are left outside, and the high schooler must find a way to get along with his classmates.
What I like about the plot of “Revenge of Others”, there are two suspects in the murder, but the real killer is a third person.
Without losing the obvious signs, the story was able to keep Jae Bom’s identity a secret for a very long time. I really like that part,
The actors and actresses did a fantastic job portraying the characters. Chae Sangwoo’s character was a nuisance from start to finish, but he did a great job playing the bad guy.
Shin YeEun’s role as the female lead, Ok Chanmi, suits her perfectly. I can’t wait to see what else he does in the future.
As for Seo Jihoon, I liked his role in Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency. The roles he plays in this show are almost opposites, and I like him more and more.
The top star of the show, in my opinion, is Lomon. Lomon’s presence on screen is captivating. I knew how much potential he had when I saw him in We’re All Dead but Revenge of Others really brought out his talent.
Revenge of Others is one of the best K-dramas of the year that I review, and I highly recommend watching it. This is a unique kind of revenge drama.
