YOOOOOO…hold on! Hold On!
Okay, okay! YOOOOOOOO! Listen….
Alright so I love the structure of this episode tremendously. I’m sure the show as a whole has followed this sort of format, and I only now have caught on but—today we got the sort of emotional victory for secondary characters like Jung-Hee and Director Yoon (with his PUNK Ah). Without further ado guys–
1. We kick things off with a lot of calls and text messages this episode. But after the digital traffic slows down. The owner of the company Dong-Hoon works for, commands his underlings to decide on a new director by the end of the day! Long story short,
Dong-Hoon wins the vote and becomes the newest director!
2. The celebration at Jung hee’s gets awkward (as they do) and she’s finally able to emotional and symbolically toast away her past twenty-something years of resentment and utterly devastating anguish. In short, Jung-Hee finally moves on!
3. Dong-Hoon’s superior who was fired early on in the show, finds and captures (police do) the young man (Ki-Beom) working in cohoots with Lee Ji-Ahn. With Ki-Beom being captured and questioned, it’s only a matter of time before Ji-Ahn is arrested as well. What’s most interesting about all this is WHO wants WHAT to happen. Acting CEO of the company, Do Joon-Young, seems to have resigned to his destiny of being ousted, fired, and possibly even worse, but He refuses to go down alone. Which leads to biggest, messiest reveal yet…
4. Dong-Hoon learns of his phone having been wiretapped by Lee Ji-Ahn and the World is coming to an end. Give Thanos the go-ahead to snap his fingers! So now that he knows. What Lee Ji-Ahn knows. What Do Joon-Young knows. What Lee Ji-Ah knows. We can all perish in utter anguish…alone…but knowing that it’s also happening to the people all around you as well. I mean the show is SO GOOD at revving up the stakes in this steady, thumping…like a headache slowly, but viciously transforming into the kind of migraines ya’ gave your parents when you were young. Yes, you!
5. Dong-Hoon’s thrashing of CEO Do Joon-Young HAS to come up at some point right? Is their culture so accepting of people getting punched in the face (LOL) Like, I wonder if Do Joon-Young like complained about it to someone and was told to man-up or block next time. LOL. Alright, I’ll leave him alone. But seriously, the deconstruction of Do Joon-Young is a magnificent, glorious scene of a train-wreck. Actor Kim Young-Min is good in nearly every scene he’s in and I really wanna see where they take his character!
Who knows what the last two episodes will bring to the light, but one thing’s for sure: I AM NOT PREPARED FOR WHAT THE TEASER TRAILER SHOWED US. I AM NOT.
Because if what I think I saw happened. HAPPENED. I’m gonna be a bawling mess by series end. Like for real though. But what about you? Give me your thoughts on the show so far at email@example.com!
