Adapted from a Korean webtoon by Kang Full, the TV series Moving kicks off by telling stories of high school students who have to hide their superpowers. Kim Bong-seok, (Lee Jung-ha) who has the ability to fly, has a crush on a new female student Jang Hui-soo (Go Youn-jung) who has regenerative powers.
However, Moving is not a lighthearted teen series. The show takes an intense turn when Frank, an assassin with regenerative powers, appears and starts tracking down and killing people with supernatural abilities one by one.
Some episodes delve into the individual story of each character, exploring various aspects such as romance, friendship, family bonds, action and suspense. The flawless scriptwriting weaves these different storylines together, ensuring a smooth transition between emotions.
With a cast featuring veteran actors like Ryu Seung-ryong, Han Hyo-joo, Zo In-sung and Cha Tae-hyun, the acting is truly impressive. So far, there has not been a dull episode. Three final episodes will be released on Sept 20. Fans of Korean TV should not miss Moving.
