Train Thrills with Two Times the Yoon Shi Yoon Intensity and Ends with a Neato Twist in the Parallel Worlds Concept

It’s finale weekend and I’m going to be sad there is no more Train to board next weekend. The OCN drama ended with a sweet and to the point 12-episodes of tightly written narrative, the sci-fi parallel worlds bit never really made sense beyond being a conceit since the story was so small in scale. Like all parallel worlds it turns out to be a multi-verse and jumping around toe fix what went wrong in one world turns out to be probably unfixable and maybe even accelerating the events. I loved Yoon Shi Yoon‘s performance here as both Do Won’s, our scruffy hero and his drug addicted but equally tenacious counterpart. Kyung Soo Jin ended up being more reactive but she still brought Seo Kyung to life and we needed that to root for Do Won to catch the killer and keep her safe. The ending was mostly shoe-horning a possible happy future for our leads into existence and I love that because we watched one compact and cohesive story and in the end make sense or not I just want poor Do Won to have a place to call home with a Seo Kyung who loves him beside him.

    • Totally agree with you @Cnblue lover. The end wasn’t all that but i loved this drama . No need to mention that Yoon Shi Yoon is one of my fav actors of his generation.

    • Agree on the meh ending but the rest of it all was great!
      Yoon Shi Yoon is a high calibre actor. Excellent work as expected. Hope to see him in another project soon! Hopefully within 2020!

  1. You can’t fix everything you want. So, I am ok with the ending. Yoon shi yoon shines. Though they left too many things to solve in 12th episode,it’s a nice journey with Seo Do Won!

  2. The series was addictive and a blast! I fell in love with Yoon Shi Yoon several times during the drama, and was highly impressed by Kyung Soo Jin’s performance. I already liked her a whole bunch in Meloholic so it’s no surprise that she had the acting chops to pull it off. The only weak point was the ending which really wasn’t great and didn’t make a whole lot of sense. Still it was a tightly woven, impactful series which I’d recommend to anyone. I’m going to miss it a lot.

  3. So lucky to watch 2 great yoon shi yoon dramas this yr. Both diary of psychopath and train were fabulous dramas that me and my family both enjoyed every minute of.

  4. I really like this drama, the concept, story line, editing, cinematography, the cast, OST and all the emotional stuff etc etc. Everything so well put together. Kudos to the director. But what I really love is the 2 leads. Can’t get enough of those 2….wonder what sparks would fly if they attempt a romcom cos both are good in comedic roles as well.
