[Review] The Bequeathed

We’re back with a new K-drama review and this time we watched the mini-series ‘The Bequeathed’.

This is the first series Min Hong-Nam directed but what a series to start with! Together with Yeon Sang-Ho (‘Hellbound’, ‘The Cursed’) and Hwang Eun-Young, Min also wrote the script for the show.

The six episodes show us the story of Yoon Seo-Ha (Kim Hyun-Joo) who is both struggling in her marriage and in her career. A few moments after she receives proof from a PI that her husband is cheating, she receives a phone call from the police station informing her of the passing of her uncle who she had no knowledge of.

Her uncle left her the family grave site and that starts off a series of murders and plot twists. She discovers that her half-brother Kim Young-Ho (Ryu Kyoung-Soo) is still alive but he’s not happy that she’s inheriting the grave site and finds that he deserves to take care of the land.

The passing of the uncle happened in a suspicious manner, so we also follow the team of officers trying to find the murderer.


This Netflix series is honestly pretty impressive. I was impressed with the different storylines and very much in awe of the performances. Both Kim Hyun-Joo and Ryu Kyoung-Soo absolutely delivered with their acting skills and it was a treat to watch.

The murder storyline was interesting and the detectives had their own nest of conflict and history.

I would definitely recommend this show if you’re looking for a new police drama that is filled with mystery!
