Bad Boy is a 2010 South Korean drama television series. The show follows the story of Shim Gun-wook, who seeks revenge after being abandoned by his family and wrongfully accused of a crime. Shim Gun-wook, played by Kim Nam-gil, is a charming and intelligent con artist who sets out to destroy his enemies' lives using their weaknesses against them.

The series begins with a flashback to Shim Gun-wook's childhood. His father, a police officer, is killed in the line of duty, and his mother is falsely accused of being involved in drugs. As a result, she commits suicide, leaving Shim Gun-wook alone and orphaned. He is taken in by his father's partner, who raises him as his own, but the trauma of losing his family never leaves him.

Years later, Shim Gun-wook returns to Korea under the name of Kim Jae-myun. He immediately sets his sights on exacting revenge on the people who betrayed his family. His first target is Lee Dong-soo, the man who framed Shim Gun-wook's mother for drug possession. Lee Dong-soo is now a successful businessman and holds a grudge against Shim Gun-wook's father, who was responsible for his imprisonment.

Shim Gun-wook infiltrates Lee Dong-soo's family and begins a relationship with his daughter, Hong Tae-ra, played by Han Ga-in. Hong Tae-ra is initially unaware of Shim Gun-wook's true identity and falls in love with him. Shim Gun-wook uses her affection for him to get closer to Lee Dong-soo and his company. He starts working for Lee Dong-soo's rival, Yoon Jae-in, with whom he has a separate score to settle. Jae-in is the owner of a restaurant chain that he built from scratch, but Lee Dong-soo stole his ideas and left him penniless.

As Shim Gun-wook's plan for revenge starts to unfold, he realizes that the people he is using are also victims, just like him. He starts to develop feelings for Hong Tae-ra but knows that their relationship is built on a lie. Shim Gun-wook's vendetta brings more trouble than he bargained for, turning friend against friend and leaving a trail of damaged lives in its wake.

Kim Nam-gil's portrayal of Shim Gun-wook is flawless as he switches effortlessly between the charming con artist and the deeply wounded man seeking revenge. His chemistry with Han Ga-in is palpable, and their relationship is one of the highlights of the show. Han Ga-in's performance as Hong Tae-ra is excellent, and she brings depth and nuance to her character.

The supporting cast is equally impressive. Oh Yoon-ah plays Baek Mi-yeon, who is Lee Dong-soo's right-hand woman but has her own agenda. Jeong Jae-sun plays Shim Gun-wook's father's partner, who is torn between loyalty to his old friend and doing the right thing. And finally, Kim Jae-wook plays Park Moo-yeol, a police detective who is investigating Shim Gun-wook's past and has his suspicions about Kim Jae-myun.

The show's production values are top-notch, with beautiful cinematography and a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. The pacing of the show is excellent, with each episode ending on a cliffhanger that leaves the audience craving for more.

In conclusion, Bad Boy is an outstanding drama series that excels on all fronts. It has a compelling storyline, fantastic acting, and excellent production values. It delves into complex themes such as revenge, betrayal, and forgiveness, and does so with subtlety and nuance. This show is a must-watch for anyone looking for a gripping and emotional drama that will keep them on the edge of their seats.

Bad Boy is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (27 episodes). The series first aired on May 26, 2010.
