What IS it with Tracksuit Guy and his food aggression? (I'm with you on loving Banker when he runs - there've been several conversations about that over the weeks.)
I wondered if that were deliberate - to show Joo Young she didn't rate the real stuff.
I just realized that the servant only brought TWO cup of tea. One for horrible Mom and one for Banker Son. None for Joo-Young.
I took it that Lee El was the manager of the hostess girls and that perhaps Jin Sook was the owner of the bar, but there wasn't anything specific I can think of that made me think that.
I love them.
Isn't he, though? That would be nice. To have, I mean.
She comments on how haggard he looks ... and that makes him realize she must be looking at him! He steps closer to the window and locks eyes with her. And he says: "Why are you over there? Your home is right here". *DEAD*
Here I come, my Banker!
Could they not have FIVE MINUTES, writer-nim? Five minutes is not a long time. Come on!
'tis CRUEL, yes.
Shit head. What kind of person DOES that? Does he think they're collecting her for a shopping trip?
What does Redstart MEAN, anyway?
Well, this is what the internet tells me: "an American warbler, the male of which is black with either a red belly or orange markings / a Eurasian and North African songbird related to the chats, having a reddish tail and underparts". Seems to be a bird :)
That reveal is going to hurt... I'm not looking forward to it. She's not doing very much but I can't help liking Yoon Mi.
I hope he helps rescue everyone. I like Park Tae Gyu.
She has been nothing but confusing since the first minute. She better have an actual reason for being in this because if not, what a waste.
I agree. I keep waiting for a reveal about her, but it's getting a bit late.
Of course. I wish, I just WISH that this universe were the same as Cruel City, and that some of the characters were a cross over. How awesome would that have been? They wouldn't need to play a large part - we could even just see them in the background at the station, or maybe have one cameo with Min That Fuck or something. Maybe Yoon Mi would share a coffee with Thighs and run some theories by him.
No! Do not kill Park Tae Gyu! My take on this, by the way is that Tracksuit sincerely intends to use the police to flush out Seo by thoroughly interrogating Tae Gyu, and that Seo realizes this and his counterattack is to have the guy killed before it ever gets that far.
I'm always amused when Korean gangsters turn criminals over to the police. I don't think I've ever seen it in an American movie.
They get there when the gangsters in their black car get there - they push Park Tae-Gyu out after getting his finger prints on the knife that killed Hak Soo (threatening him and his girlfriend again) and he starts walking towards the waiting police officers. He sees Do-Hyeong standing there on the side too, and that seems to change his mind ... he bolts and runs, screaming at Do-Hyeong that he saw Joo-Young.
Ahhh, I love this part coming up! Team work!
I loved that moment when he quietly said, 'There are only three of them.' and it took Park Tae Gyu a minute to realize what he meant. I got all excited at the prospect of fighting together and thus bonding and bromance, but that little shit ran off.
Disgusting, disgusting man. Kill him NOW.
Okay, but this sets off a series of events that really piss me off.
I cannot figure him out! He doesn't really want to do anything against her and seems to limit himself to trying to talk her out of stuff; he almost seems resigned to getting caught, in a way. Like, if he can avoid it without making much effort he will, but he doesn't seem to be trying too hard, either. I think he'd be relieved to have it over with.
Hahahahah, I laughed so hard. This man is not someone you want as a fellow passenger.
That jump! Sigh. Even if Park has better shoes, Do Hyeong has better form. I could seriously watch him run all day long.
I thought that was very revealing, myself.
CommentsOhhhhhhhh, we're back in business, baby. This was a very physical episode, wasn't it? Must have been super demanding on Kim Moo-Yul, all that running and jumping! He seems to be doing his own stunts? At least many of them. I'm in awe!
How I want those bad guys to BURN!
You know what I love about this drama? The slow reveal we get for so many of the characters. Layer by layer peeled back - we're practically at the end and still learning stuff about EVERYONE.
Yes! I like that we get to see what Park Asshole's issue seems to be (thought we don't know a lot yet) and I particularly liked the Tracksuit Gangster - Seo Jin-Gi interaction again. Chairman Kang is a masterful power wielder, isn't he? Ever meeting with him is charged with threat and I love how meek Seo Jin-Gi is in front of him ... though he absolutely hates it. Whenever he walks out of there, he sneers and shakes the humiliation off. It's also quite clear he will not win this battle and I LIKE THAT. He is a vile, vile character. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about him.
I agree 100 percent. But I keep imagining Tracksuit as a dad, with a kid bringing home less than an A: 'I'll bring my grades up, I promise!' "Oh? Will you?" and then that makes me laugh a little. I think it's in self defense because he's so terrifying. As for Seo... he's a fucking weasel. I am thoroughly enjoying the actor's performance and he's got to be one of my absolute favorites just for the variety he brings to his roles. Remember how our hearts just broke over and over for him during Shine?
Park Tae-Gyu on the other hand ... I am glad he is back, he brings some nice comical relief, without being a complete idiot (That's still Dumb Face Detective, the most useless character ever). Actually, Tae-Gyu is quite clever, especially when it comes to saving his own hide, and I love that we got a glimpse of bromance, which is most likely going to be growing stronger in the coming episodes. Well, it's a weird kind of bromance. But still :)
I will take what I can get.
