Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Revenge of Others is a Korean teen mystery series. As the show progresses, it gets more violent and the language ramps up. Suicide, murder, beatings, attempted rape are themes. Teens fight in a boxing ring and on the street, bloody scenes depicted including attempted suicide and abuse. Language includes "s--t," "hell," "bastard," "f--k," and "bitch." Character strengths include empathy and teamwork. The series is in Korean with subtitles.
Is It Any Good?
Amped-up bullying and soapy drama spur an unlikely pair of high school anti-heroes to come together in this gritty tale. In Revenge of Others, the violence and intensity builds over episodes, which might prompt parents to keep an eye out for their younger teens' feelings about the violence -- and the language.
Real issues (suicide, peer pressure, bullying) lend a little toughness not uncommon to teen dramas from the U.S.. The script lacks humor, but intrigue can be found in this show, which unfolds methodically. Adults might enjoy watching this one alongside their teens.
