Awaken: this is not a romance drama

Awaken: this is not a romance drama. While this drama has just finished, I want to write it right away. Let my baper be channeled. This time I want to tell you about Awaken, an action drama, thriller, and mystery genre. The drama which has another title “Day and Night” is directed by Kim Jung Hyun and written by Shin Yoo Dam. Aired on the Korean tvN channel at the end of November 2020 and ended on January 19, 2021.

I guess not many people watch Awaken. There are no love scenes. There is a love line, but it’s thin and veiled. For me, I prefer to watch Awaken compared to other romantic dramas that air at the same time. More fun!

Awaken Drama


The Korean drama Awaken is about the investigation of several strange death cases in the city of Seoul. It is suspected that this is a serial murder. This incident has similarities with the tragic events 26 years ago in the White Night Village. All the victims and villagers committed suicide, but seemed to smile as if they were happy with what he had done.

To investigate the case, the Seoul Police Agency formed a special team. There is team leader Captain Do Jung-woo (Namkoong Min). Leaders who have a relaxed style are also fond of eating lollipops. It was later discovered why the lollipop couldn’t get out of his hands.
As case after case is solved, four children are also found who are still alive from the terrible tragedy in Malam Putih Village. Previously, there were 13 children who survived. Unfortunately, they can not live long due to side effects of research. Some grew up, but went crazy and were killed.

The four children grew up in different ways of life. They can survive because of treatment from their adoptive parents. Of course they have to take medication regularly because they suffer from brain disorders.
