Penthouse is a South Korean TV series written by Kim Soon-Ok and directed by Joo Dong-min. Here’s a review for its third season. This K-Drama Series titled The Penthouse: War in Life is rated 8.8 on IMDb. The genre of the series is drama, suspense, crime, thriller, and revenge. So, if you like these types of genres, then you can surely try watching The Penthouse.
After the second season of the show, expectations were quite high. Unexpectedly, this installment couldn’t withstand those expectations. The plot wasn’t good, and the characters also seemed to be bored with the storyline. The pace with which Penthouse started has decreased. Now, all we see is repetition.
It’s definitely hard to keep the viewers invested in the show at all times. Familiarity in the concept sometimes intrigues the viewers and other times leaves them losing their interests. This is the reason why new seasons of successful shows lose their balance.
Who are all in Season 3?
The cast of Season 3 includes Na Ae-Kyo, Oh Yoon-hee, Shim Su-ryeon, and Cheon Seo-jin in the lead roles. Other supporting actors remain the same.
What is all in Season 3?
The teaser for the third season was released on May 27, 2021. The show is all about the story of an education war and real estate. It shows us how women chose the path of evil to protect themselves and their families. This season offers us the wealthy residents of Hera Place, whose kids are preparing to take college entrance exams.
Shim Su-Ryeon, who earlier faked her death in the first season of the show, comes to a realization that now she can lead a happy life. Before she can do so, Logan Lee dies in front of her. On the other hand, residents are trying to get out of prison so that they can lead a normal life again.
From here starts the story of justice, corruption, redemption, and greed. What we still don’t know is who murdered Logan and what lies in the fate of the residents. One thing is for sure that the desire for revenge hasn’t been satisfied yet.
This season had 14 episodes which began airing on June 4, 2021. The final episode of the series aired on September 10, 2021. In South Korea, the series began airing on October 26, 2020. Each episode has an average run time of 1h 10min. This season is rated 8.2 on IMDb.
Where can You Watch The Penthouse?
The Penthouse can be viewed on South Korean TV Network- SBS, WeTV, and Viki Rakuten.
The series somehow manages to bring a smile to the face of its viewers despite the unfortunate things happening at Hera Palace. Though some sort of boredom will be there while watching the show, you can go for it. If you’ve seen the first two seasons of the show, then you should definitely watch it to clear your doubts. And, if you’ll start watching the show from the beginning, it would be better to skip this season.
