It is time to say goodbye to our beloved vigilante crew – far as well quickly, if you ask me. But all excellent things need to come to an close, and “Taxi Driver” is no exception. Even the last episodes have been packed with thrill and suspense, which created for a seriously remarkable observe right until the incredibly close. But the drama was not only remarkably entertaining, it also raised awareness about crimes that genuinely transpired and the struggles the victims encounter. For that reason, “Taxi Driver” definitely stands out in dramaland as a definitely nicely-created and significant clearly show.
The finale did not disappoint either. It is likely not much-fetched to say that it couldn’t have been superior. Let us revisit 8 highlights from episodes 15-16 that led to a ideal ending.
Warning: spoilers for episodes 15-16 underneath.
A person for all, and all for just one
Now that Baek Sung Mi (Cha Ji Yeon) has been arrested, the time for the Rainbow Taxi crew to deal with the repercussions of their actions has finally come. Notwithstanding their excellent intentions, they did split the legislation, and consequently they are bracing themselves for jail. Jang Sung Chul (Kim Eui Sung), even though, announces to the staff that he’s arranging to acquire all the blame, but the other folks are quick to disagree.
It’s so heartwarming to see how the Rainbow Taxi workforce generally sticks alongside one another no issue the problem. They are much more than just a group of folks functioning with each other for the goal of revenge. Immediately after getting shed their beloved relations to crimes, they’ve uncovered a new spouse and children in every single other that can offer them with the heat and comfort and ease required to recover.
Kim Do Gi’s own revenge
The fact behind the murder of Kim Do Gi (Lee Je Hoon)’s mother may possibly as nicely be the greatest plot twist of the whole sequence. After 20 years of silence, serial killer Oh Chul Youthful (Yang Dong Tak), the murderer of Jang Sung Chul’s mothers and fathers, confesses to acquiring killed two far more people today – and 1 of them is none other than Kim Do Gi’s mother. This twist came unexpectedly. Even however Do Gi experienced to relive the agonizing memories whilst going through Oh Chul Youthful, in the end it granted him the probability to locate the closure he couldn’t get when he experienced been underneath the perception that the offender died by suicide.
Do Gi finally sets out for his personal individual revenge, which the Rainbow Taxi team declares as their remaining mission. As it turns out, Jang Sung Chul paid out Oh Chul Young many visits about the several years in buy to have an understanding of him better and sooner or later also observed his weak point: his son Hyun Soo (Ryu Sung Rok), whom he loves dearly. Do Gi as a result proceeds to use the son against Oh Chul Youthful.
But the vigilante’s words towards Oh Chul Young aren’t just empty threats. He methods Oh Hyun Soo (who now goes by the title Han Dong Chan) for genuine, and thanks to the latter being cornered by loan sharks, we get to see Do Gi in action one additional time!
Whilst we can be certain that Do Gi certainly didn’t approach to kill Han Dong Chan, it appears to be like he in truth regarded hurting him in some way in buy to get revenge on Oh Chul Young. But Do Gi quickly realizes that the guy doesn’t know anything at all and is just another sufferer, for he had a quite challenging time growing up without the need of a father. In the stop, Do Gi decides to cover the truth about his father without end. This proved as soon as again that Do Gi’s heart will have to be actually hefty as it looks to be produced out of pure gold.
Karma strikes back
As Kim Do Gi lets go of the trump card of knowing Oh Hyun Soo, karma decides to assistance him out instead. Han Dong Chan, who works as a jail guard, transpires to be at exactly the exact jail as his father, even though both equally really do not know of every other. As a consequence, Dong Chan ends up in the medical center soon after Oh Chul Younger breaks his bones, and tragedy strikes: Dong Chan’s mother, who is struggling from dementia, dies even though hunting for her son who couldn’t take treatment of her any longer. Simply because of this, Jang Sung Chul at last manages to break Oh Chul Younger by reporting the incident to him.
While it’s sad for Han Dong Chan, I’m also truly content and relieved that Kim Do Gi and Jang Sung Chul even now received their sweet revenge in the end without breaking the legislation this time. It was a crucial moment for them and a massive phase in direction of attaining interior peace.
Kang Ha Na’s final decision
Kim Do Gi is prepared to get arrested by Kang Ha Na (Esom) who is investigating Baek Sung Mi, Rainbow Taxi, and almost everything similar. But to his (and our) shock, Ha Na declares that she can not arrest Do Gi considering that they absence evidence, which means that she made a decision to deal with up for his workforce. Thereafter, the two have a coronary heart-to-heart and Ha Na many thanks Do Gi for becoming there for the people today the regulation couldn’t secure.
I have never been so happy of Ha Na all through the drama prior to! It was a extended and challenging journey, but she nevertheless noticed and identified the faults in the authorized technique as perfectly as Rainbow Taxi’s value at very last. She even put her work on the line to defend Do Gi and his crew, which demonstrates that she much too definitely cares about the persons but just had a unique approach to looking for justice. Eventually, Ha Na and Do Gi are not butting heads anymore. It’s such a wonderful sight.
Baek Sung Mi’s sentence
A 10-year sentence for the show’s principal villain would have been rather ridiculous, however regrettably realistic as the regulation is normally far too lenient. It was all the more gratifying when Baek Sung Mi’s sentence was shockingly doubled in the 2nd trial. Kang Ha Na has undoubtedly carried out her occupation ideal!
One’s life should not be eaten by despise and revenge, so it was only a query of time until finally the Rainbow Taxi crew would place an conclusion to their company. Whilst it was truly unhappy to see them aspect, it was undoubtedly the right selection. Making up a ordinary everyday living once again wants to have priority. Immediately after all, living a fantastic daily life can also be considered correct revenge.
When Do Gi decides to vacation and ultimately will get some truly deserved relaxation, Go Eun (Pyo Ye Jin) can take the civil company exam and turns into a badass law enforcement officer. The position certainly suits her! Choi Kyung Goo (Jang Hyuk Jin) and Park Jin Uhn (Bae Yoo Ram), on the other hand, return to their prior lives and start doing the job in their old employment yet again.
Rainbow Taxi’s reunion
But this is not the definite end for Rainbow Taxi. Just after just one calendar year, we see the workforce reunite – with the addition of Kang Ha Na! Crimes of program nonetheless happen and the regulation however just can’t shield everybody. Hence, there will always be the need to have for Rainbow Taxi to exist. From the appears to be of it, the staff users now just about every are living their very own lives, but when Rainbow Taxi is required, they appear alongside one another and act. With two group associates symbolizing the regulation, Ha Na and Go Eun, there is now also an suitable harmony involving the two sides of the coin. Now this is a best ending!
Even however “Taxi Driver” wrapped up really fantastically, the addition of Ha Na to the crew leaves a person wanting more. I’m quite curious how their teamwork would essentially glimpse like, and it is a pity that we did not get to see that more. There are nonetheless a lot of extra scenarios out there that haven’t been tackled yet. As Lee Je Hoon stated himself in a current job interview, “a 16-episode miniseries was way too small to have all the stories that we could have instructed.” So can we hope for a time two?
