The show’s official synopsis reads: "In a colorful Seoul neighborhood, an ex-con and his friends fight a mighty foe to make their ambitious dreams for their street bar a reality."
I've got to say, that's a pretty accurate way to sum up the show in one sentence so kudos to whoever wrote that description. But if you're looking for a hair more detail before you commit the next 72 hours of your life to a show, I'd add that this is a coming of age story that gives you the sense of hope and escapism you might be looking for one year into the pandemic.
Led by Park Saeroyi, who is the series protagonist, you can't help but feel invested in his triumphs and tragedies while watching. Dude can't seem to catch a break as he faces one setback after another in his pursuit of becoming a successful businessman and, oh yeah, avenging his father's death. Yet, even in desperation, Park somehow pushes forward without ever compromising his morals.
Buoyed by the support of his newfound friends, which include Jo Yi Seo, a brilliant social media star with sociopathic tendencies, a fellow ex-convict looking for a second chance, a transgendered chef who is coming into her identity and a Guinean-Korean in search of his father, you will cheer the group on as they navigate their way through the ups and downs of their twenties together.
