The Korean drama Beyond Evil is a fascinating study of human character, identity, trust, and loss. From how Jin-muk strips his victims of their identities by removing their fingerprints (then ironically returning them to where they ‘belong’) to the loss of self each of the characters goes through to discover what they’re capable of, Beyond Evil questions ‘self’ and the ‘reflections of ourselves.’ It takes a town and everyone in it, turns it upside down, and then forces them to look at and question themselves and each other. It takes morality and immorality and squares them off.
