Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Moving is a South Korean show about people with superpowers. Its intense, gory violence includes fist fighting, stabbing, electrocution, and being tossed from heights and landing with a splattering thud on the pavement. Teens vape in school and use language that includes "f--k," "s--t," and all of their variations. Characters are stalked and killed. That said, characters also show acts of loyalty, friendship and compassion. In Korean with subtitles.
Is It Any Good?
Strong character development and compelling back-stories make for a gripping action show geared towards teens. Moving successfully illustrates how a society is held together by parents who make sacrifices for their kids and teens who care about following rules. It's funny and sweet, scary and exciting -- great for a weekend of binge watching.
Teens who like action and can handle a little gore will enjoy this the most, but those who are sensitive can look away during the fight scenes because they're rather quick. Parents may find the political undertones subtle and complex enough to enjoy this one too.
