This month SF9’s Rowoon alongside Lee Soo Hyuk and Kim Hee Seon are set for fantasy drama but with a twist! First two episodes of the drama has already been aired and to be honest it is one among the best fantasy K-Drama till date.
Currently airing on Netflix, the drama synopsis reads, “Made half-human and half-spirit by accident, a young man is employed by a company of grim reapers in the underworld to carry out special missions.”
While the Netflix description does not say much, the webtoon description offers more, “Junwung, an unemployed college graduate, slips into a coma when he accidentally falls off of a bridge. While he’s in a comatose state, he gets an offer from the crisis response team of the underworld company Flashback to temporarily join their team. If he accepts this offer, he could wake up early from the coma and even get rid of the karma from his past life that’s been holding him back from getting jobs! He’s got nothing better to do tomorrow, so it’s a beautiful day to save lives… with these grim reapers!!”
