Is It Any Good?
This show mixes weird body horror, intriguing concepts, beautiful settings, and a compelling and suspenseful storyline. Connect is a thriller that offers a unique concept and characters. Dong-soo is an evolved human with an immortal body, he can rapidly heal, reattach limbs and recover from any damage he sustains. He is also able to share vision with the serial killer Jin-Seob. The idea of being able to see from the killers first person point of view as an innocent bystander is chillingly horrific. Jin-Seob's obsession with creating corpse art is also morbidly interesting and leaves you wondering what he will do next as he's being hunted down by detectives and Dong-soo. There is one disappointment: since Jin-Seob is revealed to the audience as the killer right away, any tension or mystery regarding his identity is immediately eliminated. Overall, Connect is an intriguing thriller that covers both sides of its story in an interesting enough manner to keep you hooked.
