bcook: That kiss scene and the multiple replays just made my fingers curl and not in a good way. yuck yuck yelch yelch. eww.
bcook: sneer. This frantic back and forth may have seemed cool when they were storyboarding but .... *crosses arms in an x* andwe
Shuk: Uh oh, we see our ghost to be. At least we see a man limping down a road with a gut wound trying to outrun some black-on-black suited bad guys. He drops a phone that inadvertently gets damaged by a passing ramyun scooter, but runs back to pick it up anyway. He throws the phone in a postal box and keeps running.
Shuk: Detective Cha walks in, sees her, and grabs the basket to run away, to store them. Except they haven’t been vouchered yet. Hee. He seems like the schoolgirl whose first kiss was stolen by the town bad boy.
Shuk: Gun-woo gets a phone call from Detective Lying Jerk and leaves the office. While he’s gone, a bright-shirted guy comes in looking for a lost cell phone. He zooms right in on the broken one and tries to grab it, saying that it’s his even though he has no identification. He finally leaves without it, but he gets the idea to hide in the toilet.
Shuk: Outside, the two officers talk, and the liar's lips are moving. He tells Gun-woo to meet up with him later, and bring along Team Leader Yang. Well, that was a waste of a walk.
bcook: Trying to isolate TLYang are we? Why'd Choi say invited TLYang if he's not going to stick around to see her? Holes! Holes everywhere!
Shuk: At the crime scene, Shi-on glances at a face in the crowd: it’s the phone thief, but he quickly fades back. She gets the phone call at the scene that the Lost and Found Department was robbed. Even Director Monkeyface and Team Leader KissAss show up to browbeat Team L&F. Once everyone leaves, the Director pulls Yang aside and tells her to keep it under wraps and find the missing items without publicizing it to the rest of the department.
bcook: *facepalm*. Yeah ask the guy you don't trust to help you out.
Shuk: The Liar receives a phone call, and tells the caller that he’ll take care of everything. Crap, is the phone call somehow related to Dead Phone Guy and the alive phone thief? Ghost Oppa thinks so, since he’s following him.
bcook: What do you expect? You brushed him aside so callously. He has pride too.
Shuk: Gun-woo and Shi-on are canvassing an area of Seoul, looking for the phone thief with no luck. Hee-bin shows up at the Lost and Found Department, and Sung-chan springs out of his seat to see her. Hee-bin conduits some intel for Team Leader Unni: Go to a certain person in Chinatown and tell him a passcode. The information is given to Gun-woo, who collects Shi-on. The passcode gets them to a cook in a Chinatown restaurant. He identifies the man as Lee Young-gul, stating he and his friend quit there last week. He shows them a photo of both men, and asks that they get him home safely. He hands them the address.
bcook: ??? WTF? You know what. whatevs. "I don't care eh eh eh eh eh. I don't care eh eh eh eh eh."
Shuk: Back in the present, he explains that they were smugglers working through a paper construction business and laundering money, along with their handlers, who are South Korean government officials and corrupt policemen. Hah! There’s the link!
bcook: Is she remembering? or is this like a general playback?
Shuk: In present time, Ghost Oppa is hovering over Detective Liar, who is clearly frazzled over a phone call he’s received. Apparently they are on the hunt for the phone too. Hyung-joon says in his mind: “Things won’t go the way you want; I’m going to expose everything.” And I say YESS! Wait, he’s talking about the corruption isn't he. [pout].
|How Ghost Oppa should look|
Shuk: He’s still leaning over her when she asks if he is okay, and his sarcastic comment reassures her that he is fine. Detective Liar shows up, but of course didn’t catch anyone. He sees the phone, and now knows that it’s in Team Leader Yang’s possession.
bcook:Wah such a covetous look.
Shuk: They make it back to her house, and he wonders why things are more exciting in Lost and Found than in Special Investigations. She plans to investigate in the information in the phone before handing it back over to anyone at the Police Department.
bcook:.... This was supposed to be sweet right? And make us miss him? Coz it failed.
Shuk: Back at the office, he grills Sung-chan regarding the Chinatown tip. He says Hee-bin gave it to them as the cook is a regular customer of hers. That seems to satisfy him, until he finds out Team Leader Yang went home early. She didn't go home, but met up with a sunbae to ask about Detective Lee. He was in the same academy with the Ghost Oppa, but doesn't mention anything about their relationship. I guess no one in the department ever knew they were dating . Which is ridiculous because, in Real Life, police officers have an internal gossip grapevine that rivals the NSA.
|What a police muster meeting is like.|
Shuk: And we have the final flashback; she was running late and he tried to sneak up on her. When they faced each other, Hyung-joon gently adjusted her collar and asked her how her first day went. Oh the hugs are so real and lovely, and the manager took the picture. Wow, on her first day as an officer.
Shuk: Back in the present, all of her memories are back now, and she turns around again to see Ghost Oppa standing behind her. He walks slowly, almost disjointedly, until he is in her personal space, as she looks up with tears and calls him “Oppa”. She reaches out to touch his cheek, apologizing for forgetting him.
bcook: Well he said he's not back for a hopeless love. I'm so against GW and TLYang couple. It does not exist to me. Eopsseoyo!!
bcook: Just give Ghost Oppa more screen time! Jeesh! He's got the looks, he's got the bod and you know he can act. *sigh*
bcook: hahahaha. That would be so funny! But it looks like he's tried really hard a couple of times.
