Once known as an ace detective in the police force, Lee Dong Sik’s (Shin Ha Kyun) present life couldn’t be more different than what he imagined it would be two decades ago. Instead of scaling up the law enforcement ladder, Dong Sik must content himself with doing menial tasks at a backwater police station due to his failed attempts at catching a mysterious serial killer all those years ago. Some things he has vowed never to share, and the events of that case have left marks on him both physically and psychologically. At the police station, Dong Sik must work under the supervision of Han Joo Won (Yeo Jin Goo), a popular young detective from a privileged background. Intentionally sent by his father, a candidate in the running for becoming the nation’s next police chief, Joo Won keeps his cards close to his chest and has a fair few secrets of his own. Both parties don’t see eye-to-eye but are forced to work together once a murder case comes along that has uncanny similarities to those that took place 20 years ago. Loyalties are tested and friendships are forged in the search for the person behind these mysterious murders. “Beyond Evil”, also known as “Monster”, is a 2021 South Korean drama series that was directed by Shim Na Yeon. Having scored 4 nominations at the 57th Baeksang Art Awards, the actors of Beyond Evil (Monster) guarantee a powerhouse performance. Filled with hate-to-love dynamics and top-notch directing, you’ll find yourself coming back for more episodes.
