Netflix Review - The Uncanny Counter

I had been an avid watcher of Netflix and why not put that into good use by reviewing some of the series that is showing on the streaming platform.  Let us start with our UNCANNY COUNTER REVIEW. (Watched Date: August 2021)

Netflix Review - The Uncanny Counter

What Makes THE UNCANNY COUNTER a Must Watch?

If you have are a fan of a story that has lots of twists and turns with shocking and emotional moments then this is definitely one that will have tons of them.  The story of these evil hunters called Gream Ripper is something that I have not seen yet in any Korean series.

For anime fans, however, The Uncanny Counter is uncannily similar at some point to Jujutsu Kaisen wherein a group of people hunting evil spirits.  On some level, this series has that same excitement, suspense, and drama as the anime series.

The acting, character development, and plot of the story are superb.  All of the episodes are cliffhangers which makes you want to continue to watch it.

My favorite character in the series would be Choi Jang-Mool played by Ahn Suk-Hwan. He is the first "Counter” of Korea. He is in charge of managing expenses fr the group. His acting, emotions, and character is really a spice on the series making what otherwise would be an overdo of emotion if he is not there.

Overall, I would give The Uncanny Counter a rating of 9/10
