Taxi Driver is a revenge-fuelled action saga that revolves around a taxi company which offers a ‘luxury service’ taking revenge against criminals.
Kim Do-gi (Lee Je-hoon) is a former 707th Special Mission Group Captain who works for Rainbow Taxi Company after his mother was killed. Do-gi is ready to exact revenge for victims and help criminals get the punishment they deserve. He knows what it feels like to be wronged and denied justice. Too many criminals have been getting away with light sentences, or totally evaded the law and Do-gi wants to balance the scales of justice.
Working alongside the Rainbow Taxi Company is the Blue Bird Foundation which was run by Jang Sung-chul (Kim Eui-sung). They also maintained connections with the District Attorney’s office through Jo Jin-woo (Yoo Seung-mok), to provide charitable support to victims of heinous crimes. This is also where the Rainbow Taxi Company finds clients who would likely seek revenge for their ‘deluxe service’.
However, Do-gi and his team of avengers may have helped those who experienced injustice, but does the means justify the end? It is true that they are operating outside the purview of the law. Surprisingly dark and gruesome, Taxi Driver offers viewers a lot of shocking scenes showing us that vigilantes in K-dramas can be equally violent compared to western shows.
