Night Has Come Review

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

"Night Has Come" really caught me off guard in the best way possible. When I first tuned in, I was bracing myself for the usual low-budget vibes and so-so acting that you sometimes get with lesser-known dramas. But man, was I wrong! It turned out to be an absolute gem – way more than just your average drama. It's one of those shows that sneak up on you and before you know it, you're totally hooked.

The drama unfolds in the corridors of a high school, where the mundane life of students is shattered by the introduction of a deadly real-life version of the mafia game. After a mysterious app is installed on the students' phones during a secluded school retreat, the game turns alarmingly real. Each episode expertly escalates the tension, as the line between the game and reality blurs.

Students find themselves in a desperate bid for survival, with one or more among them designated as the 'killer.' The rest must identify the culprit before it's too late, but distrust and fear run rampant. The show brilliantly captures the chaos that ensues when a group, bound by fragile alliances and riddled with paranoia, tries to outsmart an unseen enemy.

The drama presents a range of characters, many of whom may strike viewers as unlikable or frustrating. Their inability to work together effectively is not just an occasional irritant; it's a constant source of tension throughout the series. This intentional character flaw is a critical element of the narrative, reflecting how fear can dismantle logic and cooperation.

The characters' decisions, often driven by panic and suspicion, can be exasperating to viewers. It highlights a grim aspect of human nature - the propensity for self-preservation at the expense of collective safety. This aspect of the drama, while frustrating, adds to the authenticity of the chaotic scenario they find themselves in.

The show's narrative takes the viewers through a labyrinth of suspense, with an explosive twist that redefines the entire storyline. The twist is not just a plot device but a moment of revelation that changes the viewers' perception of everything that's happened so far.

While "Night Has Come" is undoubtedly a masterpiece in the horror genre for 2023, it is a complex watch. The series is marked by its intense atmosphere, intricate plot, and a cast of characters whose decisions often border on the irrational. This K-drama is an intense journey that is as much a psychological exploration as it is a horror story. It's a series that will leave viewers pondering the depths of human nature long after the credits roll.

I recommend it as a watch for those who enjoy dark suspense K-dramas. Watch it on Viki.
