Is Vagabond Worth Watching?

If you’re looking for a short and direct answer it would have to be: yes. But without spoilering the whole story for you I’ll dive into a few things I think about this KDrama series.

First of all I must level with you, I got hooked by Vagabond. I started watching KDrama series to practive my Korean but I have obviously fallen into their trap (lol). The plot and the way this series is filmed makes it very dynamic and enjoyable. There are many twists and turns that keep you coming back for more episodes.

I found myself going through 2 or 3 episodes at the time. Even during a short weekend break abroad. That’s how addictive I think Vagabond is.

A Little About The Story

First of all let’s look a little at the plot. Cha Dal-gun, a stuntman, who had to raise his nephew on his own, looses his nephew in a plane crash off the shores of Morocco. Once he reaches the north african country he starts realizing some parts of the plane crash story don’t add up.

He seeks the help of Go Hae-ri, an outpost NIS agent. At first she doesn’t take him seriously, but as strange events keep taking place she is forced to help Dal-gun in his quest for justice. As events unfold they will find them selves involved in something much bigger than they expected.

What did I Thought About It

As often is the case with Netflix series, Vagabond is also ended with an open ending. Which I think quite a bummer. I generally prefer TV series that have a well defined end to them rather than an open ending.

Also it being a KDrama series there are some traits it of course could not miss. There are some scenes which are exaggerated, almost funny. Of course there is some romance as the two main characters get emotionally involved.

But overall I do give it a two thumbs up. It’s very entertaining and it’s one of those series you feel sorry to have finished it. Finding yourself a little broken hearted that you have gone through all the episoed. I was also disappointed to find out that the filming of the sequel is still yet to start. So we’ll be left hanging quite a while to know how the whole story will come to an end.
