Exciting thrillers for the crime and thriller aficionados
Switch gears and quicken the pace with crime dramas and thrillers that will leave you breathless! Start with the much-awaited action-crime series The Veil, starring heart-throb Namgoong Min as Han Ji Hyuk, a top agent at the National Intelligence Service (NIS) who was in pursuit of an organised crime syndicate when he goes missing for a year. He returns to take revenge on the person who betrayed his trust and caused his downfall.
If you’re a fan of popular K-dramas that portray the lives of the rich, like The Penthouse series and A World of Married Couple, High Class is right up your alley. A mystery thriller about the dangerous contradictions and hypocrisies behind the perfect lives of women living in the top 1% of society, Song Yeo Wool (Jo Yeo Jung) is a widow who is falsely accused of her husband’s murder. Malicious rumours about her are spread by her peers, and she goes on a dangerous path to discover the truth behind her husband’s death.
Don’t miss Hometown, a crime drama set more than 20 years ago. It is centred around a police detective in a rural town investigating a string of strange murders and a woman on the hunt for her missing niece.
