Angered by President Jo's demand Hyun Woong asks "What makes you think I am obligated to clean up after your dirt?" Smiling confidently, President Jo tells Hyun Woong the story of how his father (President Kang) had framed his friend (Dae Chul's father) with Song Man Seok's (the Central District Attorney) help. President Jo was the detective who arrested Dae Chul's father knowing full well that he was innocent.
President Jo "I got rid of one man to help two man to gain power and money. I am those two man's link ... so do you see why you need to help me now?" Remembering everything Pres. Jo told him, Hyun Woong looks down at the blood vessels in his hand and mutters "I have bad blood in me."
I am having a difficult time ignoring how useless Min Hee was in this scene. As the team leader of the VIOLENT crime team... she should've gotten a few kicks of her own in or at the very least not just sit there acting like a weak damsel in distress.
Looking at Pres. Jo's sneering face, Min Hee promises him that she will put all of her energy to dig up his crime. Anyone else wondering if maybe Pres. Jo is actually Min Hee's father/rapist that she has sworn to find to avenge her mother?
Firing off questions like she is interrogating him, Min Hee becomes sheepish when Dae Chul puts all his prosecutor training to fend her off AND is assured that Dae Chul really is not the masked man when she gets another text that ended with hearts while she is in the middle of talking to Dae Chul. Dae Chul had someone else text Min Hee while he was talking to her.
Convinced that Dae Chul is not the masked vigilante, Min Hee unwittingly helps Dae Chul by assuring Hyung Woong on the phone that Dae Chul is the prime example of someone that will sell out for money.
Knowing this is the perfect chance to infiltrate the enemy territory, Dae Chul puts all his effort to come off like a prosecutor with no morals at all.
Doing Dae Chul a favor, Ri Na asks Madam Kang "Just out of my personal curiosity, how could you go to the man who took everything away from your husband? Didn't you even have a son with your ex-husband?"
Glaring at Ri Na, Madam Kang vehemently answers "I only have one son, and his name is Kang Hyun Woong." Upon hearing his mother's words, Dae Chul laughs in self disgust. Poor kid, it is pretty obvious that he keeps harboring that small hope that his mother actually does care for him.
Dae Chul shows up at the nick of time to save the witness and demands that Lee Jang Gwon confess the name of the man that ordered him to kill the masked man. (Dae Chul's father)
Hearing the siren outside, Lee Jang Gwon calls someone on the phone "I've failed. I am going to finish everything by taking all the blame. Let my wife go please."
Min Hee arrives in time to see Lee Jang Gwon fall to his death and the furious cry of frustration as Dae Chul leaned over the window when he saw Lee Jang Gwon is dead.
This show needs to seriously up their fighting power of the violent crime team.
How does a veteran detective who was supposedly good enough to be in the violent crime team somehow ended up being tied up while the witness under his protection is being chased by the murder?? I am glad the detective didn't die but that was also kinda weird Lee Jang Gwon would take the time tying him up instead of just killing him.
I don't expect my police characters to be super humans but this... this is getting to be a bit too ridiculous.
Onto the things I do like. I am really liking Prosecutor Seo Ri Na's character so far. From Ri Na's conversation with Dae Chul we could guess that Ri Na actually sees past Dae Chul's facade and would like to date him but Dae Chul always avoid the issue by jokingly downgrading himself.
Our heroine Min Hee herself also has her own suitor in Kang Hyun Woong who apparently gave Min Hee his first kiss back in their school days. Although I am not sure if Hyun Woong really does care for Min Hee or not since he really should've known that Pres. Jo might do something to harm her and took steps to protect her... like Dae Chul did. I am a bit torn on Hyun Woong. He doesn't seem like completely evil but then he doesn't seem like he cares about the number of body counts of innocent people either. Of course technically Hyung Woong is Dae Chul's half brother so this is going to be real messy when both brothers like the same woman.
I do LOVE the interaction between our two leads. I especially love the fact there seems to be this secret familiarity between the two no matter how much Min Hee would like to deny it. At first I really was kinda doubtful of the paring of Joo Sang Wook and Kim Sun Ah, but their chemistry is great. I wouldn't exactly call their chemistry as the sizzling kind... yet, but they are certainly hilarious to watch whenever they are together.
