I watched it.

Spoiler, it's about over 400 people doing school Phys Ed class like us old folk used to in the eighties and nineties. #wenevergotmoneytho

BUT... Is it good?
Dubbed or subtitles?
Dubbed with sub titles (Korean original available).

Was it good? Hmmmm, entertaining but I don't think it deserves the supposed popularity it's gained for Netflix. Not complicated though so easy to watch.

I really enjoyed the season :)
I found it a solid binge watch. With two insane boys it's difficult to follow anything that demands massive attention so it was lekker to be able to follow it even with the impending threat of fire or a hospital visit due to the kids.

I enjoyed it but wish they had dialled back on the gore. The ending suggests a second season.

It was good but you have to watch it in Korean, English version just isn't the same.
They should just end it there as well, No Season 2.

An excellent series! Storyline isn't predictable and visuals done well. I feel the gore made it more believable.

Don't watch films that are dubbed if you can help it, always use subtitles rather. Every language has tones and subtle notes that get lost when dubbed.

I loved this show. Agreed, watch with English subtitles. Also believe it should end with Season 1. Next season could ruin what was already perfect. Great visual imagery, art direction was carefully thought through. Highly recommended show

I think I enjoyed the music the most. Especially the workers music lol. When you hear that, it just creeps you out

Big fan of South Korean cinema. While this is not on the top of the list, it was still pretty solid. I'm glad Netflix is starting to offer a lot more of it

One thing about Korean shows is they have perfected characters that are just total deadbeats/losers, but still manage to have you sympathise with them

Always original audio with subtitles though
