Mask Episode 2 - Let's Get All Machiavellian Up In This Joint.
So with that in mind, let's jump right into the crazy goodness that is this drama. Or the water as the case might be since we left our leading man passed out next to a drowning Eun Ha. We flash back to a different drowning incident where we see a young Min Woo in the water, holding onto his mother's hand, but unable too keep her floating for long. She drifts away as kid Min Woo yells OMA... OMA... over and over. It's no wonder the guy is a tad bit crazy.
However, kdrama fate is hard at work trying to hook up our emotionally challenged OTP (one true pairing). Through a series of phone calls and near misses in a crowded mall our couple only avoid meeting due to the actions of a conniving Seok Hoon.
At last Seok Hoon lays down his cards and propositions Ji Sook to take the place of the dying Eun Ha. What downside could there be? She gets a rich husband, money to pay off the thugs that are tormenting her family, and a better life. Of course Ji Sook says no (What noble leading lady would say yes?) and declares her intent to stay on the honest path.
Our bad guy must work quickly since he needs to switch out Ji Sook for Eun Ha before Eun Ha's parents arrive back from abroad. Remember, everyone thinks that she is on the road to recovery... Bring in the thugs. A lot of thugging is done which results in Ji Sook witnessing the head thug (seriously get distracted by his hair) killing a man. The unfortunate witness (hmmm I am sensing a set up) is dragged out and handcuffed to a car and told to drive.
