Drama Review - Golden Cross

Revenge dramas might be a common type, but they are also a very tricky genre to pull off well. While it is easy to pile misfortune onto the leads who will carry the aforementioned revenge out until audiences feel for them, going for more grey characters is harder. The villains are also an important element, since a lot of the dramatic tension and viewers' emotional investment relies on them keeping that feeling of injustice going. 'Golden Cross' succeeds in some aspects and fails in others, ultimately missing the mark for what could have been a great revenge story.

Kang Do-yoon (Kim Kang-woo) has a loving family of parents and a sister. He aspires to be a prosecutor and make a good living. When his sister is tricked into providing sexual favors for an important figure of the finance world named Seo Dong-ha (Jeong Bo-seok) and is murdered by him, Do-yoon's father is framed for it. As he begins to look into the case and plan his revenge for what was done to his family, Do-yoon meets the prosecutor in charge, Seo I-re (Lee Si-yeong), who also happens to be the daughter of the murderer.
