The series, which is adapted from the webtoon of the same name released today, and fans are divided with it!
After the official announcement of the series by Disney+Hotstar, fans were curious if they would be able to watch the new series in dual audio or not. A day ago, the official team took to their social media handles to enhance the curiosity of the OTT users by unveiling a new poster of the series.
The recent social media post on Instagram took the audience to have a look at the dark hero's journey fighting the crimes by taking the law into his own hands. The new poster said, “I’ll show you real justice... The dark hero created by society..”
Taking to Instagram, Disney+Hotstar shared the new poster and captioned the post, “Love him or hate him, justice needs him. Get ready for #Vigilante, starts streaming November 8.”
The post quickly garnered thousands of likes, however, some users only had one question in mind. The prying eyes of viewers were trying to decode if the thriller-action series would be releasing in multiple audios as the previous kdramas on the OTT platform. Some kdramas on Hotstar like Jung Hae-in's Snowdrop and Lee Jong Suk’s Big Mouth are available to watch in Hindi and Korean languages. Fans flooded the comment section to express their desire to watch a Hindi-dubbed Vigilante.
One fan commented, “Hindi dubbed please with crying emojis.”While another said, “Korean drama in Hindi dubbed plzz”
Other users also demanded an English and Tamil version too. However, as the two pilot episodes aired today, it may have shattered the hearts of a few fans as the series premiered with only the original audio, i.e. Korean.
Fans were also quick to shower love to the pilot episodes and were overwhelmed with Nam Joo Hyuk's acting skills. One such fan took to X to express his excitement.
