Fugitive: Plan B


  • Title: 도망자: Plan B / Fugitive: Plan B / Runaway: Plan B /
  • Genre: Action, Romance
  • Episodes: TBA
  • Broadcast Network: KBS2
  • Synopsis: During the Korean War, a vast amount of money disappeared. Now, some 60 years later, the money has reappeared, leading to a frantic chase across the globe. Jin Yi (Lee Na Young) is a seemingly innocent woman who has hidden motives for approaching Ji Woo (Bi). Her plans are complicated by an unexpected romance developing between them, as well as the numerous pursuers hot on their trail. Kieko (Uehara Takako) is a famous Japanese singer who also gets tangled up in a relationship with this man. Little do they know that her father Hiroki (Takenaka Naoto), apart from being a business man, is a powerful yakuza. In this love triangle, who will finally win the love of Ji Woo?

Let me start off by saying that this series has an amazing soundtrack, which really is no surprise now that I think about it.  Most people are watching this series for either Bi Rain or Daniel Henney (or both).  However, even if you aren’t watching this series for either of them like me, this drama is great to watch.  The plot is great. The action is great. The comedy is…mostly great. And as I’ve mentioned before, the soundtrack is great.  That pretty much makes it an epic drama.

There are some annoying about this drama, but they aren’t that big of a deal, so they can basically be overlooked.  It irks me every time Daniel Henney speaks in English while everyone else is speaking in Korean.  The conversations seem so awkward.  Even if his Korean accent might not be that great, he should have been given more Korean lines.  Also, the cinematography seems inconsistent.  Sometimes it great, but sometimes it has moments where the editing gets a bit choppy.

On a side note, I love how Rain’s character is not a complete badass all throughout the drama (which was how I thought it was going to be, since this Kdrama is heavy on the action and fighting scenes).  In actuality his character is a complete goofball, which really adds to the comedy element of this series.

Overall, this is a really great drama to watch.  Chances are that you will highly like it.

My Rating: (4/5)
