I really like that we are both fully aware that this drama might just actually kill its hero - and I, at least, have faith that if this happens, it will work with the story. We haven't talked about it, so I'm not sure how you feel about that.
I will cry for days. But I guess I'll be alright. Eventually.
I puzzled over that, too. In the end, I decided that Park is not a bad person; he's a person who did something bad. This means he won't always choose to do bad, and as I've said before, I almost think he wants to get caught.
I was so happy that a bike appeared in the story again! I want him to do more tricks with the bike like that! Between that and the car...now we need to get him doing shit on a bus and on a plane and on a train. Next drama: Crazy Stuff Fit Men Can Do on Transportation.
Followed by: Cruel Things Old Men Can Do with Food.
I bet this guy is tired at the end of a day's filming. And I want to see BTS, especially if a bug flies in his mouth while he's on the bike.
Yeah, that was kind of stupid. But the whole massive manhunt thing is just ridiculous in the extreme anyway.
First Rule of Gangster Club: We don't use hospitals!
See? Dude must be exhausted.
How convenient. Me? I'm always on the wrong side of the parking garage. And usually the wrong floor.
Of course. This guy is the freaking Terminator.
Disgusting. I hope public restrooms are much cleaner in Korea than they are here. He'd need to gargle with bleach.
Hello, random mirror.
What a beautiful shot though! :)
Jerk. Why do your two brain cells have to kick in NOW, huh?
Just hurry up and figure him out, Yoon Mi. Once he knows you know, I'm sure he'll work with you instead of 'sort of' against you, because he'll be relieved it's in the open. Let him be the sacrificial death.
I hate it when he's right.
President Jo's missing daughter.
Is she Seo's girlfriend or what? How is she involved in all their business?
It's a mystery.
In the meantime, Janggab is facing Seo Jin-Gi. Poor guy... I mean, no, he isn't, but we all know what's coming as soon as we see his crutch, right?! That "we all know" is including Janggab, who is bracing himself. Yup, Seo kicks the crutch away under him, threatens to harvest his organs if he messes up again and sends him to find Park Tae-Gyu. Without crutches and very much in pain.
I love it. Seo screws up mightily everywhere he turns and yet he expects perfection from everyone else, of course. Nothing is ever his fault. Dirtbag weasel scumsucking pigdog.
Aw, man, just a grow a pair already.
Like you need anyone to suggest that.
Bank Guy is not near his house though but where he suspects Park Tae-Gyu or at least a lead: he went to the rundown building in which his underlings live. Bingo! In the living room, Park Tae-Gyu almost cries when he sees the sad remnants of his gang - and then jumps up in happiness when the bell rings and he hears Bank Guy's voice. Park Tae-Gyu knows where Joo-Young and his Mi-Sook are. And how does he know? The clever guy managed to memorize the number of the cell phone when he was put on the phone with Mi-Sook - and had that cell phone traced by some "friends". Of course, he knows that he has no chance against the Shadows alone, he needs to partner up with Do-Hyeong. We're having ourselves a team!
The little shit will run away again, I'm sure of it. I like him, but he's got no balls. Of course Do Hyeong's got balls enough for a rugby team, so it all works out...
Ugh. But you're right, she's never been one to stand around wringing her hands.
What follows gives me the creeps. We see how Jin-Gi gets closer and closer in his car ... and we see the fear and desperation in Joo-Young, who faces rape and degradation. She manages to pull a heavy metal cabinet in front of the door right before the smug and disgusting Seo Jin-Gi wants to come in. That only stops them for a few minutes, though: his underlings combine their strength and knock Joo-Young aside. In he comes, the scumbag, and closer he steps ... until she grabs a bottle, smashes to top off and holds the shards against her neck.
Do you think that story he made up for Tae Gyu is the actual truth? He did all of that to begin with because he wanted her for himself? Nah. He was a shit to her back when she was informing on Hak Soo also.
I love you Tracksuit Gangster!
This broke my heart into tiny little ticker tapes of sadness.
We can allow these brief moments of plot weakness, though.
I love that he travels with a grill. And what an excellent insult, to not only take over the office but then stink it up with the smell and smoke and grease of cooking meat. Also, I dread what torture comes next.
There's no way Tracksuit believes him. He's just playing out that rope.
HAHAHAHAHAHAH this guy cannot catch a break. That's because evil doesn't pay, you bastard.
And it's a fucking BIG fire! When Tae-Gyu and Do-Hyeong run in, the whole upper floor is ablaze. Gangsterlings run out (some burning), Do-Hyeong runs up ... and just stares. So. Much. Fire. He remembers his sweet, smiling bride and looks at the inferno again. Then he screams her name.
I spent a little time pondering why the gangsters, who are only there to guard these oh so valuable prisoners, would run out of the warehouse without even attempting to bring along those prisoners. What happened to gangster determination to follow through on orders?
Well, those things are better than nothing.
And they both die and Banker Mom goes on the warpath and kills all the Shadows, The End.
CommentsMan, I was glad the sound went all funny in this last scene (the "monster voices" :D) because otherwise, it would have been absolutely horrifying. I'm also really, really glad I'm watching and recapping this AFTER 11 and 12 have aired, because how could I have survived a whole week?!
I hated those voices. Very disruptive.
This was another super exciting episode! The whole cat and mouse game with the cops at the beginning, the hospital scene, Park Tae-Gyu and Do-Hyeong kinda bonding ... and especially Yoon-Mi going against her boyfriend and siding with Do-Hyeong. I think I loved that the most.
Yes. I want the bromance but I also want Yoon Mi to be useful in this.
We also got some more food violence in this episode and I must admit, I am now waiting for new ways in how to use food and food items to torture and degrade people. I might even be thinking about what else could be used, but I'm not sharing. Or you'll all think I'm a horrible person. Anyway! Seo Jin-Gi being punished was marvellous. I want more of it!
Think about the scars left if you threw a hot pot of bubbling porridge at someone's face. It would stick, too.
