For my objective review on crime drama ‘Tunnel’, please check it at hellokpop. Since this is a genre that I have grown to love because of my attachment to Criminal Minds, at some point I joined the highs and lows, but the safe and neat narrative felt lacking in the end because it was always leaning on a safe side in explaining the links presented in the story. The trite flow and complacent writing that circled to the villain overshadowed the heroes and gave an imbalance on the character dimensions of the story.
I wish they had explained the catalyst of the time jump but they just sort of let it happen in the story. I know that it was laid as part of the plot framework, but in kdramaland everything has to be explained. lol
Overall, ‘Tunnel’ is still an exciting drama watch. The unexplained time element is the only thing that set it apart from the crime dramas focusing on serial killing and also my minimal complaint along with the predictable storyline.
