In retaliation for his attempted murder, Ryu Seok labels those deliverymen as terrorists and requests they get shot when arrested with the exception for Yoon Sa-Wol.
The deliverymen disperse and hide.
Ryu Seok’s father visits the grandpa, and they discuss what his son had done. The grandpa tries to convince him to leave Aircon and come back out. He agrees with this notion.
Then, the people who were taking vaccines from Cheonmyeong group are dying. The deliverymen find out Ryu Seok was trying to eliminate them on purpose. They get angry.
Meanwhile, Ryu Seok’s father signs a deal with the president to help all the refugees with the relocation plan destroying his son’s dreams.

Ryu Seok then draws a gun and shoots the two guards down, he then gives the gun to his dad and asks him to shoot him to end it all instead of trying to pin it on someone else.

“Black Knight” review- initial thoughts
That was super cool, intense and nice.
First things first, I am very happy with the close ending, I am really happy Netflix was not pushing for a 2nd or 3rd season with this one. I was afraid this would be the case because the drama is on the shorter side with only six episodes, which is definitely shorter even for Korean Netflix dramas.
Overall, I was very happy with the acting, with the directing, and with the writing for the most part. I think this is a very fun binge-worthy short drama. There are some certain scenes that I felt were a bit unnecessary, but they do help set up the mood for what to come. I think the drama would have also worked well as a movie, but Making it into a drama was also not a terrible idea.
Generally speaking, Netflix produces very good k-dramas for the most part. Even on a bad day, you can rely on a Korean drama produced by Netflix to have a certain level of quality to it in terms of its production, as well as the acting, the directing and the writing.
Actor Kang You Seok definitely stands out in this drama and does a very good job opposite the most established actors we have on the project.
