Joongwon is a 390 year old vampire. He runs a luxurious bar with his friends and fellow vampire, Yihwa who would force him to drink blood whenever he grows weak. Afraid of emotional attachments, Joongwon lives a lonely and secluded life.

One day Joongwon meets Jiwoo, the daughter of his old love who thinks that he is the son of her mother's love. They start to fall in love as Joongwon's emotions, frozen by time start to melt for Jiwoo. Yihwa becomes jealous thinking that she and Joongwon should be together forever. As the love triangle develops, Yihwa decides to tell Joongwon how to end his life forever...


For decades, countless of novels, drama series and movies revolve about a seemingly frictional yet familiar type of Being, Vampires.

Korean drama series are popular for its heart-wrenching mortal love stories. However, the recent “Freeze” series offers a slightly refreshing and different platter. This is still about ill-fated love story but the intriguing idea is that literal bloodthirsty mutant beings are involved. The latter always left us, the mortals to the greatest imagination.

“Freeze” still maintains the same melancholic signature of seemingly all Korean series. This comes unsurprisingly acceptable for its die-hard fans. However, it is comparably of a disappointment to the expectations of the dwelling possibility of having unexplored aspects of this mutant “being” ventured into here. No gory element is fine to a certain extent but sadly, boredom of the usual ideas of wine, class, prestige about centuries-old but ageless, bloodthirsty Beings precedes.

A notable aspect of “Freeze” series plays down on the seemingly glamorous superficial side but focus on them as not different from ordinary human beings. They do not have flaring sharp-pointed teeth or colored eyes or supernatural powers (e.g. flying down from high altitudes) but simply pathetic souls tortured by a curse to survive on only blood.

If you are touched by the male lead's tear-welled bambi eyes, perhaps you may embrace“Freeze” with his never-to-be fated love.
