Zombie Detective (K-drama 2020)

Kim Moo-Young (Choi Jin-Hyuk) has been a zombie for the past 2 years. To survive, he has mimicked the mannerisms of humans in a village. He then leaves for the city. There, Kim Moo-Young opens an office to work as a private detective. He does not remember anything before he became a zombie. He struggles to live with humans and to regain his past memory. Meanwhile, Kong Sun-Ji (Park Joo-Hyun) used to be a writer of a current affairs complaint program. A witness in a case, she was working on, was attacked by an unknown man. Due to that, she quit her job. She becomes involved with Kim Moo-Young and takes a part-time position at his private detective office.

Zombies are everywhere in Korean drama and films, but Zombie Detective is not a typical zombie I was expecting, In fact, it is hilarious and entertaining. Choi Jin-Hyuk nailed the character with so much fun and appealing. with his cold stone face, the way he talks and stares, he brought the hilarity of the story. The script is light with some absurd points, but its ok to let it off because they manage to cheer the viewers. More than that, I like the way they showed us the new perspective of the world from a zombie’s eyes while doing his best to coexist with humans, breaking away from the traditional zombie characters of cruelty. Aside from that, all the cast are good in their specific roles, nothing is to complain about.

If you’d like a good break from serious dramas, you must watch this one.

 Verdict: 9/10
