  1. 1 : Hyeongnam Says:

    I remember the original British drama. It was great if you understand British humour. Very NOT politically correct.

    The US version was even funnier and also so NOT pc.

    I do hope they keep the humour with the Korean rendition. Tunnel was tame by comparison though the genre’s the same.
