Watcher 2019 Episode 1 Recap
Watcher 2019 Episode 1 Recap. It’s the month of July and that means we have new Korean Dramas coming out. Watcher is one such drama, this drama has a lot of top actors such as Han Seok Kyu, Seo Kang Joon, and Kim Hyun Joo, so you know it’s going to be a hit drama. I am here to give you guys weekly episode recap with as little spoilers as possible.
This is a very suspenseful drama so I am sure you will have questions and I will try to answer them as best I can. Ok, enough talking let’s get to it.
So, this is the plot based on what I got from watching episode 1. Watcher is following the life of Do Chi Gwang (Han Seok Kyu), Kim Young Koon (Seo Kang Joon), and Han Tae Joo (Kim Hyun Joo) as they try to unravel and expose corrupt cops. They are linked together by one common case that haunts them until this day. They will form a team that investigates and bring corrupt cops to justice as they try to unravel the secrets of the case that brought them together.
That’s how I would describe the plot.
Watcher sets a very suspenseful tone with episode one. It gave us just enough for things to make sense but left us wanting more answers. The characters are very well written as well. All three major character seems like they carry around a very sad and painful past which appears to be the driving force behind their current career path.
Do Chi Gwang was a top police investigator closing multiple cases but decided to switch over to internal affairs after experiencing either some setback or realizing that someone needed to police the police.
Kim Young Koon had a great career in the army according to Do Chi Gwang but decided to change careers and become a police officer. This decision was due to his traumatic past and wanting answers to his mother and father deaths.
Han Tae Joo was a very successful prosecutor up until one particular case (Watcher is yet to expound up this yet) after which she decided to work as a Lawyer.
The main characters so far are great and very mysterious especially Do chi Gwang. His character is just charismatic and confident.
I personally like this drama. Despite starting off slow at the beginning of the episode it did a good job introducing the main characters and setting up the story to be compelling and suspense full.
