  2. 2 : changeling Says:

    Watched Ep 1 last night.

    It has the kind of criminal busting vibes that gives a satisfying, feel good childish vibes to it. A refreshing change from the dark bloody mindless dramas we have lately.

  3. 3 : changeling Says:

    Hahaha .. it sounds childish… but who’s to envy me? I got my full load of revenge satisfaction from this drama herem. Makes up for the harrowing experience I have had to go through each time I watched Mouse. Any remedy to get my sanity balanced out …….

  4. 4 : Desa Says:

    I want this team in all countries. They deserve happy ending

  5. 5 : changeling Says:

    #4 Desa

    Hahahaha … no harm having wishful thoughts. Its my wish too. I hate bullies, especially school ones.

    If only … I were to have superpowers, I would hang each and every bully from a tree.

    I like the last two episodes about the school bullies. Loved how they met their match in Kim DoKi (Taxi Driver).

    School bullies are a scourge of schools. Once some friends and I were bullied in school too when we were in year 4 elementary. The bully was a big fat girl. We nicknamed her “10 cows thick” for her thick skin cuz she did not feel shameful when she bullied us. One day during recess, we ganged up on her (me included). I joined in catching her. Hehe !! The brave among us (excluding me, not so brave, hehe !) gave her a good hiding. She looked horrible after the beating. Her shoulder length hair was all over her head and face. Her uniform looked like it had not been washed. Our victory cry was “ten cows thick” over and over at her. It was a good laugh. Since then… there was peace, even during class. Hehe !!

    Now we have this drama that goes after bullies. How nice ! Nostalgia !!

    The is only the introduction of the revenge taxi. Expect that it wont be long when Kim DK will be facing very very bad people. Vicious killers. Just as well? This will be a chance for him to eventually get to meet his mother’s killers. Can’t wait to watch this part of the drama.

  6. 6 : Çiğdem Says:

    Watch this series
    This episode was very good, ı mean 4. ep.

    I felt justice.
    Jung Min’s mom, ı’am still soryy for her.I don’t care what they do because it feels right to me. I’m sure one of the events they’ve shown and will show has happened to us.

    The musics are great, I feel like I am in the 80’s. And of course the serial killer is alive and they will face him too.

    Everyone in the team has a story, they lost their loved ones, I so wonder.

    The next episode is about bad bosses who keep people running and shouting all the time. Already excited.

  7. 7 : changeling Says:

    #6 Cigdem

    Is there really a serial killer in this drama? Kim DK’s mom could be a victim of a serial killer? Oh no !! No, no, NO !!

    Oh gosh !! Please do not rain serial killers again….

    I supposed it wont be so bad if Scripwriter were to write a sensible story. Promise it will be only ONE serial killer?
    Scripwriter you hear me? Thanks.

  8. 8 : Çiğdem Says:


    Actually not sure there is a serial killer maybe not,
    Korean screenwriters love serial killers ı hope so not but when he (DK) attacked the killer in the first episode, As far as I remember killer said ”its not first time for me”

    Anyway someone killed his mother ı just so wonder about this why!!!
    but I think the real killer is someone else. I’m still waiting for the main villain of the serial, the kind that will force the team.

  9. 9 : changeling Says:

    #8 Cigdem

    I think there is a killer in the story .. but this killer could not be a psychotic one. Hope he’s someone with a misguided grudge/hate who kills for revenge, not for the thrill or to feed an addiction as in a psycho killer.

    ATM the story is still in its early stage. There surely is a back story to tell regarding the reason for the murder of Kim DK’s mom. And KDK’s mom could be just a collateral victim.

    Looks like fate is drawing KDK to meet his family’s killer. KDK is so ready for it now. Fighting, KDK ?

    Btw what happened to Jung Min’s mom? Something bad happened to her? Hope not. She’s just a hardworking single mom though she lives in fear of the bullies.

    Did you see the rating for Ep.4 ? 15.6 pct.

  10. 10 : Çiğdem Says:


    Yes, DK’s mother may have been killed for revenge. I thought about that too and we haven’t seen his father yet. Then the killer is the enemy of DK or his father. Actually, I liked this story.

    There may be corrupt corporation and individuals behind this story.

    There is more time to learn. Because we will see the story of the other members of the team first.

    Jung Min’s mother is fine. She is a very strong woman, I just still feel sorry for her, when Jung Min crying in the bed, she was so helpless.

    And the ratings will get higher. Of course.

  11. 11 : changeling Says:

    #19 Cigdem

    I like this drama too. The story is basically about good vs bad, kind of story. A forever kind of staple of story telling. And yet I do not get fed up of it. I love it instead. Haha ! Sounds like a fairytale. Hehe ! Its OK. We are allowed to fantasize. This is life…

    I wont deny that the appeal of this drama is that we get a sense of satisfaction when the bad guys get back what they deserve, better still in double dose.

    I am a stickler for feel good stories. Haha !

  12. 12 : Çiğdem Says:


    There are so many wronged people in the world. I know this is a series, but it feels good.

    People maybe will want to fix something when watching this drama. So keep watching.

  13. 13 : changeling Says:

    #12 Cigdem

    You are right. There are many wronged people out there. This drama feels like a pill to heal their hurts. Good theraphy.

    Yeah, will continue to watch this drama if it continues to give out good vibes.

  14. 14 : changeling Says:

    Watched Ep 5.

    Woah … it was horrible to watch how employees are so badly psychologically, verbally and physically abused by the management of that company. As if an employee’s life is worth nothing !!

    Time for “taxi revenge” to step in to stop such horrific treatments of staff.

    Hope Prosecutor Kang HaNa will decide to leave her job and join team “taxi revenge”.

  15. 15 : Çiğdem Says:

    After Ep. 5 and 6

    First of all, Lee Je Hoon was awesome, he did the best of this episode, I laughed at him a lot.

    I feel like the prosecutor will join the team, and it seemed to me that she would do anything for justice.

    Go Eun’s sister suffered terribly, its horrible but ı think she killed herself.

  16. 16 : changeling Says:

    # 16 Cigdem

    Yes, I think so too, that Prosecutor Kang Ha Na will join Team Taxi Revenge. Adding more power to the Team. Fighting !!

    So… that is the reason why the CEO of Rainbow Taxi wanted to pull G Eun out of the UData demolition mission? Her sister was bullied to death by UData?

    Yes, it’ll hurt to revisit old wounds, but I think Go Eun has got to get involved if she wants to heal herself and have closure.

    Impressive. The rating for Ep.6 closed at 16 pct.

  17. 17 : OK OK OK Says:

    Nice exciting drama 🙂 I enjoyed watching it. ok Lee Je Hoon fighting!!

  18. 18 : changeling Says:

    Episodes 7 and 8 were awfully great.

    Taxi Driver beat the crap out of those sniffing crawling dyed haired scums !! Including that coward whining nincompoop CEO !! If I had been there, I would smashed Nincompoop CEO there, where thereafter even a transplant would not be possible for his little body bit !! Make him a enuch for life !! How’s that ? Ultimate revenge !! Hehe !!

    Lucky for Nincompoop CEO, Taxi Driver had other plans for him. What ? Blow him up to smithereens !! Together with Nincompoop’s treasure chest, the Main Server ? The evil of all evils that ruined thousands of lives and killed many. This, a mercy killing for Nincompoop?

    Jokes aside, seriously, thro this particuar drama, I’ve come to learn that the sex blackmailing and exploiting crime is very real. Run by crime syndicates. Vulnerable people were preyed on. Their lives turned to hell when their private sex lives were secretly taped and made available online for a fee. Worst, there are perverts who would pay to get to watch. Nothing could the victims do to totally erase the videos as the videos were kept in the Main Server. Erase one, another one will appear. For some victims, it would be too much to bear. They resorted to end their lives to escape the misery.

    Now we understand why Taxi Driver opted to blow up the Udata operations to smithereens, in this case including the Nincompoop CEO. Way to go …Taxi Driver !

    I luv, luv Taxi Driver and the Rainbow Taxi Team. Fighting !! Jia You !!

    P/s I used to get Actors Lee Je Hoon and Seo Kang Joon mixed up. Thro time, now I can tell who is who.

  19. 19 : Lemon Says:

    Start watching this drama yesterday. Just finish episode 2. Not bad. Hope this drama not like Mouse. Or it is same genre? If yes I think better for me to stop at the moment. Enough with Mouse give me headaches. 😅😅😅

  20. 20 : Lemon Says:

    *I mean Genre=Storyline

  21. 21 : changeling Says:

    #19 & 20 Lemon

    I’ve watched this drama todate, up to Ep 7 & 8. So far the story is way different from Mouse.

    Mouse is a drama glorifying the cult of serial killers, gruesome spilling of blood and careless attitude towards humanity. It even has a “serial killer magnet” in the story. Serial killers young and old, somehow tend to veer towards her but she never got killed. At one time she even got married to a real head hunter without knowing his real i/d !! The story was written in a haphazard and convoluted style which leaves many viewers utterly confused.

    Whereas Taxi Driver is a feel good kind of drama, the staple of the usual, yet popular story of good vs bad, but in a kind of good baddie way. This time, there is more ‘explosive’ actions where the justice fighters fight back with real physical payback actions which also include explosive power if need be. And then, taking the defeated baddies to be sold off to a crime syndicate. What for? You may ask. Go watch the drama, and you will know…. much to your satisfaction. I clapped hard for the justice fighters !!

    Basically, Taxi Driver is a proxy avenger drama. Revenges and fights for justice are carried out by this group of professionals on behalf of the victims. The main hero is Taxi Driver.

    Also, the story is well written plus the production is smoothly carried thro … makes watching the drama a bliss.

    There was mention somewhere of a serial killer in this drama. But so far so good. There is not a hint of its forthcoming appearance. Hope it stays this way. I am sick of serial killer dramas too.

    Hahaha … btw try watch this drama. Might get your Mouse headache cured, naturally.

  22. 22 : changeling Says:

    Haha .. this drama has so many exciting, interesting and badass actions going for it that I am lost for words. Dont know how to talk in detail about it. I am overwhelmed.

    The drama has my total approval in the way revenge is paid back. Tit for tat in the most ‘striking’ way – stuff of the revenge dreams of many people.

    Added to Taxi Driver and Team’s avenging skills, there are these awesome car chase/car “combat” scenes on the road.

    Where did Taxi Driver acquire such awesome driving skills from? He could make a 360 deg turn in one smooth move. Or make those near impossible floating sliding moves at sharp corners !! Plus manaeovering many more other tricks on the road to crash the enemies’ vehicles. I luv watching such scenes. Wish I cud drive this well.

    Well folks, you might like to know, in the last episodes 9 & 10, Taxi Driver & Team sent the phising scammers packing to the slammer !!

    More such victories to come for our avengers!! But so do the law enforcers of Prosecuter Kang Nara. They beginning to suspect Kim DoKi (aka Taxi Driver) of suspicious activities.

    Fighting Avengers !!

  23. 23 : Amy Cassandra Says:

    This drama is so good and entertaining that I don’t even realize it’s about to end.. Good job!

  24. 24 : changeling Says:

    Spoke too soon last time when I thought that serial killers wont come here. It was a fat wish.

    In the lastest episodes 11 & 22, the serial killers did finally turn up here in the most inhumane and grusome manner. These serial killers can be classed as the entrepreuner type, not the more familar psycho predator type. These entrepreuner killers’ stocks are from the human bodies. Yes, you guessed right. They could easily render a whole body empty, save the shell !! Goosebumps!! Monsters !!

    Our Taxi Avengers Team is fighting back very hard. This time round, they are facing an the enemy which is more powerful, organised and mad. In comparison to previous avenging jobs, this one is no walk in the park. Its very dangerous, evil and grusome. Shivers !! Woahh .. !! Will our team of heroes get out of it alive ? Stay tuned … for the rest of the drama if you want to find out.

    Side note – Police’s hands were tied and had to close a missing person’s case cuz no body was found. On top of that, Prosecutor Kang HaNa’s assistant was killed during a raid on the criminal’s operation. There is a chance now, Prosecutor Kang HaNa might join Rainbow Taxi Avengers’ Team. She cant do it alone. Too many red tapes in the way. Presently, she’s cooperating with RTAT to investigate this serial killer operation.

    Fighting !!

  25. 25 : Çiğdem Says:

    I was very surprised when the inspector died. I certainly did not expect this, I am so sorry for him, he was a good man and a fair person.

    What about Baek Sung Mi? She showed how she can be a devil. I’m looking forward to her end. But I can say I’m glad Kang Han Na joined the team. Actually she just asked for help but maybe there will be more later on.

    So we are coming to end, I hope it will be good for everyone.

  26. 26 : changeling Says:

    Oh gosh !! Just when our Rainbow Taxi Avengers Team (RTAT) is about to close their operation for good, and turn themselves in to the Law Authority, to face punishment, there comes this serial killer. Not any serial killer, but The One who claimed to be the real killer of Kim DK”s mum and CEO Jang Sung Chul’s loved one. The One who triggered our two heroes setting up the RTAT in the first place. How good is the timing of his appearance, you would ask?

    Oh no !! Wrong timing. No good. Not now! Not, when our heroes are just about to hang up their avengeing operation for good. And to start a new life. How are they to say ‘No’, now ? The temptation to avenge their personal loss at the serial killer is too great to give up !!

    What’s going to happen to our heroes? Will Kim DK or CEO Jang SC die in their last quest to mete out their own personal vengeance ??Suspense suspense !!

    One more episode to go… We will only know when we get to watch the end of the drama….

    Haha ! Just found out. Actor Lee Je Hoon is 36 y.o. A surprise. He looks so much younger than his age.

  27. 27 : laura reny Says:

    the best crime series movie.. and i fall in love with lee je hoon … … he is good actor and the best acting …

  28. 28 : changeling Says:

    So we have come to the final episode (ep 16).

    The ending is too good to be true, fairy tale like. Not complaining. Hehe !

    Yes, Kim DK and CEO Jang SC did take revenge on The One serial killer. No blood or violence were spilled however. Haha ! No matter, it was a painful payback The One will live to remember till his dying days. Not giving spoiler….. You may like to go watch the final episode to find out more? I clapped so hard for our heroes !!

    The ugly twins got free board and lodging for the rest of their lives, tab on the govt. No need to harvest human organs for a living any more. And Miss Baek got her stay in the slammer doubled. Another clap clap from me.

    Then comes the cute parts …

    CEO Jang SC made sure to feed happy good friend Deputy DA a big spread of delicious food before confessing his crimes, much to DDA’s anger. Poor fella, he lost his appetite after this.

    Prosecuter Kang HN handed in her resignation only to be shown one from Deputy DA himself. Haha !

    Here’s the best part. No charges were brought against our RTAT heroes due to lack of evidence. I dont know about you, I am all for this !!
    Clap clap. 👏

    Epilogue showed a new secret RTAT. And they have a new member. Kang HaNa. Is RTAT reviving itself? And Deputy DA is now running his own law firm. Haha ! Is this a hint that there might be aTaxi Driver 2 on the horizon?

    Taxi Driver had been an enjoyable drama to watch. Thank you to Scriptwriter, Production Team, the Cast and others for your hardwork in making this drama.

    Have a nice day, everyone !!

  29. 29 : changeling Says:

    Hahaha !! I can stop kicking myself now for confessing that I used to get Actors Lee Je Hoon and Seo Kang Joon mixed up (re #18 postscript).

    Recently, somewhere online, someone had also said that they used to get said Actors mixed up, until they watched Taxi Driver. Gosh !! Mata sepet pun !! 👀 (Yes, except for their sexy lips these guys do look different).

    High five, to this !! Hehe !!

    I wonder when will Taxi Driver 2 be showing. Looking forward to it.

  30. 30 : Hanako Says:

    Best thriller drama and superb actor Lee Je Hoon for this drama.
    Had watched the few dramas he did on the romance side, he was a good actor but seldom in dramas. Thanks for the very good entertaining drama . Best for this year thriller story

  31. 31 : changeling Says:

    Just finished watching a re-run of Ep 6 of this drama. Its still just as exciting and revengeful. Haha !!

    Still luv this drama. Though this time round, I seem to find much more stuff to see and to know. Must have missed them during the 1st screening. Great !!

  32. 32 : changeling Says:

    Today I came across a short piece of news which mentioned a few must watch dramas which will be screening next year. Taxi Driver 2 was one of them.

    Great !! Keeping fingers crossed.
