Sadly, I must write quickly since it is super late and I have a huge family outing to the beach tomorrow. The NW coast is always nice and cold, and its siren song is calling my name since I am totally over this heat wave. I HATE SUMMER. And since Dongsaeng needs me to get this out earlier than later, my thoughts will be short and sweet. I know...I know... you want me to wax poetic about Seo In Guk's gorgeous locks and how they frame his perfectly chiseled face, but that will have to wait til next week. To make up for its length I promise extra photos at the end, so please forgive me.
At this point I have a hard time noticing anything other than how HAWT Hyeon is looking at that moment. I am pretty sure that this drama is making me develop a hair fetish. OR at least a Seo In Guk hair fetish.
So I am a bit confused about Ji An's actions. At times, Ji An seems slightly on top of things, but then she opens her mouth and you just wonder how she ever passed the police academy. I was willing to overlook the obvious physical issues she might have in being a cop and dealing with murderers. But her simplified outlook in reference to her work just kills me.
It is not that I don't enjoy watching her banter with Hyeon. They are actually cute together, with him being able to do mental rings around her, but at the same time I don't get a feel that she is at the level of an average cop. I guess this is going to have to be one of those dramas that I just ignore reality and focus on the funny.
That whole part of the plot is definitely the weak link for me so far. So let's just move past it and focus on the funny some more.
Ji An attempts to figure out a way to catch Chaebol (before he flees the country to China) but comes up empty. Our plucky leading lady decides to ignore Hyeon's comment that he is done cooperating with the investigation, and hunts him down at home. She tries to flatter Hyeon by saying--"God might not have given you a good personality, but he gave you intelligence." Bwahahaha, she tries to fix her faux pas but ends up telling him he is brazen and shameless (it's this that keeps me still liking her).
Sadly all of Ji An's running around does not result in finding a reason to keep the Chaebol from leaving the country. She does discover that hottie lawyer is even scummier than thought, but no evidence emerges.
I love that Hyeon is not only several steps ahead of the rest of the group (including the killers), but is at least half an episode ahead of them. It was a total joy to see his actions produce fruit in the end.
Ji An is furious that Hyeon used her and races to his house to confront the cocky genius. Hyeon tells Ji An that he is not at home and texted her the address to his childhood home instead. Ji An bursts inside yelling and ranting, but Hyeon calmly states that he did just what she asked him to (sucks talking to someone who can find loopholes in everything). After she is ranted out, Hyeon stands up and begins walking into Ji An's space. Hyeon informs her that he is bored and has decided to investigate the mystery of Ji An. First of all he wants to know how often she has snuck into his house? Hyeon had given her an address that was a few houses away, yet somehow, Ji An did not hesitate to come to his home. Therefore, it is obvious that she knows him from before. Hyeon continues to lean in and asks --- "Who are you?"
ACK this went longer than I planned... OK, quick rundown of my thoughts. I already mentioned the slight problem I have with Ji An's character. Cop - No. Plucky girl who is fun to banter with - Yes. Seo In Guk has amazing hair and I could stare at him staring at himself for hours. I am enjoying the fact that I have several suspects that could be the older version of Lee Joon Young. I have my #1 guess, but won't state it here since most of my reason behind my guess is seeing this actor play bad guys in past roles. Let's just say that he is AMAZING when he goes all evil.
As for my last thought..... I love the fact that it is so easy to see that Hot Lawyer is Hyeon's younger brother. I think they did a great job of matching the younger version to the older version so that it is totally believable that they are the same person. I know that Hyeon is suspicious, but I would be interested to see if he is thinking along the same vein as I am. Hopefully we will find out soon.
That's all for me. When you read this I will probably be dipping my toes in a nice cold ocean and working on my sunburn. Hope you all enjoy this episode and recap as much as I did.
