I... wow. You have never, ever said this. Never once.
I consoled myself with 'Well they can't both be dead, right?'
There's no way he'd drag himself out of that building and leave her behind. He would stand in burning flames, screaming in agony, just to hold out his hand for her to take. So this means she saved him when he fell unconscious.
All this seems like it's so obvious that every time they bring it up I get confused about why they DON'T know about it.
It could be considered a flaw in the story, but it's actually quite realistic. The figures only always know exactly what they're supposed to know. The viewer often knows more, which makes it a bit confusing.
See? He doesn't want to be an ass. He IS an ass, but we don't know why. At least I can comfort myself with the knowledge that he's a miserable ass.
Oh, that tear broke me... the couch is in Do Hyeong's apartment, isn't it? And where is Joo Young's mother? Have we seen her at all since the beginning? Nope, just the brother and his wife.
She's maybe in some other drama :)
I was cringing, weren't you?
(Me too!) Chairman Kang demands to know why Joo-Young was kept at the factory at all and Jin-Gi tells him that she was working for the cops, that she is responsible for Song Hak-Soo's arrest three years ago - and he was taking revenge for Hak-Soo! The very good question is: How did he know that?
I'm loving the look on Tracksuit's assistant's face, since he was in on that too.
(Damn straight it will kill you. Punctured lungs, ruptured organs, internal bleeding, brain injuries...) Secretary Kim comes in to report that Joo-Young seems to have died in the fire then - which just amuses the Chairman and makes him mellow? He gives Seo Jin-Gi a last chance. If he is truly 100 times better than Hak-Soo, he will live.
'I have ears.' I actually gasped out loud, that sentence was so rude. I couldn't believe it would come out of his mouth. The lying dirtbag scumsucking weasel of a pigdog should be DEAD.
Doryeonim in shock.
I like that guy. I know him from stuff, but can't remember where.
Elsewhere, they hold Joo-Young's wake. Yoon-Mi steps by and grieves quietly (and full of guilt). Inside, Hostess Friend is throwing a fit, asking again and again whether the Brother actually checked Joo-Young's face. He claims he has (even though it was all burnt!). And anyway, she was carrying her wallet with the ID. Hm.... Yoon-Mi isn't convinced either: She has all the files related to the fire incident brought to her and studies them thoroughly. Then, she attempts to get a warrant to do an autopsy on Joo-Young's body.
Yes, do something.
Mr. Banker has been transferred to a private VIP room and his mother is quietly sitting at his bedside. Lawyer comes in and informs her that Joo-Young is going to be cremated today. She had two life insurance plans, totalling 200 million won in benefits (approx. 180'000 USD). That fact? Known to scum brother, who is eager to collect this money and is rushing ahead with the funeral. Mom says that her family is worse than she thought - and tells Lawyer to delay the warrant until after the cremation.
I don't know if she knows. I think she just wants to put it to rest for her son. If there's an autopsy and it's not her, then he's going to keep going. But if she's dead and gone, he will stop. Of course, knowing him he'd keep going even if there wasn't an autopsy because 'maybe' - but a guy has to stop sometime. Right?
He probably hated having to say that. I get the feeling lawyer likes our banker.
Nothing can destroy our hero!
On the upside: Now that she is dead, it is less likely that he will die soon, too.
Cut to Joo-Young's bro and sister-in-law, who have opened a restaurant with the insurance money they got. Do-Hyeong is up and about and steps in, with hair over his forehead and the air of bleakness around him. He says nothing and Brother just babbles about how sad he is (cause he's feeling guilty, which he should, the greedy bastard). But Do-Hyeong has only come to collect Joo-Young's belongings. There is one card box full of it, nothing more.
Why were they keeping it at the restaurant?
Like, two days a long time. How did he not pee himself lying there? That's right, I ask the questions everyone wants to ask.
That was hilariously funny, I would love to hear that it was all off the cuff!
Mi Sook is missing with no reason not to contact Tae Gyu, right. Other than realizing her shifty boyfriend practically got her killed and wanting to put a LOT of distance between them, you mean? But no, of course I understand that she would have contacted him, which means if she didn't contact him, she couldn't contact him, which means she's dead and Joo Young is alive.
(hair cut and wardrobe change coming up)
Oooh are they going to do spy type things now?
Evidence, schmevidence. I'm sorry, but why did he not realize this immediately upon discovering he was found outside?
They're a bit slow sometimes, JoAnne. Don't stress them.
Coming soon, you horror afficionados: Bride of Banker! 'He would have followed her into death... but she followed him back to life.' I really should have gone into marketing.
See? He IS a lying bastard of a tiny-dicked scumsucking weaselly pigdog.
And here we see another variant of the pigdog: the weak-willed disloyal backstabbing weasel in its natural habit, looking shifty as it plans its next half-assed move.
Sorry, sick mother isn't enough, Park. People get sick and people die. It's not a reason to break the law. Well but if it was a kid, maybe I would feel differently... NO, no, NO EXCUSE.
I love the banker.
That was a good book. Did you read it? Shadowland by Peter Straub.
Chairman Kang is ... playing with some goldfish. There is a water tank in his restaurant now when Seo Jin-Gi is summoned. Kang asks whether Seo is doing any better and orders him to religiously eat the pills he got for him. Also, it's time Seryo Construction actually started building something. Which means: additional loans. No food violence this time. I must say: I'm disappointed.
He could have forced live goldfish down his throat. I was anticipating it eagerly.
Did anyone EVER think he was?
I practically pooped my pants.
CommentsDun-dun! I'm pretty sure Do-Hyeong will not remember Seo right away, since he has only seen him wearing a mask - but of course, he'll be fully alert as soon as Seryo Construction will be mentioned. Seo on the other hand ... he may very well know who Do-Hyeong is. DANGER! Play it smart, Bank Guy! Ah, but we know you will.
At first, I thought they both recognized each other... they were certainly both very wary. But then I thought about it and I realized Seo has always known who he was... but Do Hyeong might not know about him.
No, I didn't think for one second that Joo-Young might really be dead. And I think the drama didn't want us to think that either - otherwise, they would not have given us his memory of her bending over him, all blackened with soot.
I agree with you. There was never really a question. She's alive and I always knew it. I'm a little disappointed that HE didn't always know it.
That said, I LOVE how this drama just reinvented itself and turned dark-revenge on us. Have I mentioned I want an extension?!
I'm still just completely agog. Where is my critical Kakashi? By this point in the story usually your job is to point out the flaws and me to point out the good bits!
