Revenant Season 1 Review: A Chilling Tale of A Sacrifice Gone Wrong

Revenant Season 1 Review: If you could have anything that you desire in life, anything at all, be it money, fame, immortality, then what would you wish for? And what if that wish comes with a price? What will you sacrifice? or rather who will you sacrifice? Will you be ready to sacrifice yourself in a Faustian bargain or…someone else?

There are many such questions that plague human existence. Is there a god, a heaven and a hell, or is life but a mere Sisyphean myth? Are we living in an abstract world of ideas, a relative, a hypothesis or does this world reflect a tangible truth? Is there even a singular, absolute truth? In such a world, what is real or not real?

Amidst such profound philosophical enquiries that human beings have participated in for centuries, the idea of something supernatural seems ridiculous. Gu Sanyeong would have scoffed at it. Until one fateful day, when she picked up a cursed historical object bequeathed to her by her dead father.

Today we have for you a spoiler-free review of the chilling horror-mystery kdrama, Revenant, starring Kim Tae-ri who is known for her acclaimed projects The Handmaiden, Mr. Sunshine, Twenty-Five Twenty-One and more. Without further ado, let’s dive into our Revenant review!

Revenant Season 1 Plot

Revenant (2023) begins with the life of our protagonist Gu Sanyeong, a woman preparing for Korean civil services examinations while also working for many part time jobs, living with her mother who has been diagnosed with anxiety disorder since after an unknown terrifying experience. It is when she loses all her savings to a con-man that she discovers that her supposedly dead father was very much alive until he actually passed away for real.

It isn’t long after she discovers that she has been possessed by an evil spirit determined to kill her and everyone around her. And it won’t stop until it is satisfied. Who is this spirit? What happened to it? Will Sanyeong survive? Find out more in Revenant!

Have you died before? You haven’t died before so why are you speaking like you know anything about it?

One of the most interesting characteristics of Revenant that makes it different from similar kdramas in the past such as The Guest (2018) is that the premise is not solely based on an all-powerful supernatural entity of an unknown origin. Revenant’s supernatural chase has a beginning and hopefully an ending (that doesn’t end with many more deaths). The evil spirit that goes on possessing the characters is an outcome of inhumane cruelty and greed of the society which has to reap the seed it has sown.

The spirit, in many ways, seems to be taking revenge for what happened to it, quite unlike the visitors of The Guest who target human weaknesses as a source to create mayhem, death and destruction and find pleasure in the act of it. Thus, Revenant’s spirit becomes more humane than a mere supernatural entity and its “every crime has a motive”. The spirit’s revenge is for the inhumane and torturous sacrifice it had to suffer and for what cause? For the rich to become richer? It is not just a tale about a supernatural mystery chase but a tale about regressive traditions, of unravelling the darkness that lies in being human, of denying the right to live.
