One of the things that this drama successfully has done is to show the goodness in people. We’ve got Soo-jin (Lee Bo-young) who tries to save a child and protect her as her own; Miss Clara who raises children left alone by their parents; Cha Young-shin (Lee Hye-young) who has displayed the real essence of motherhood; and now, we’ve got the Head Monk. To be honest, I was on the edge the whole time our detectives were in the temple. I was afraid that the Head Monk will tell the truth but I was pleasantly surprised that he went the extra mile (figuratively and literally) to help Soo-jin and Hye-na (Heo Yool). I don’t really know much about the values of Buddhism but maybe he can see through the hearts of the people and it also helped that he met Soo-jin when she was young.
I was holding my breath as I watched how the events unfolded during Soo-jin’s meeting with Seol-ak (Son Suk-ku). Seol-ak is disturbingly ill-tempered and violent, I feared so much for the lives of Soo-jin and Hye-na. So I could not thank Dr. Jung more when he came just at the right time to save the two. The confrontation between Seol-ak and the detectives almost gave me a heart attack especially at that particular scene he tried to smash the younger cop’s head with a hammer (this drama’s giving me all sort of feelings). And though, it should have felt satisfying to see Seol-ak die, I felt pity that he became the wreck that he is because of the emotional scar he had when he was a child.
Yes, Soo-jin and Hye-na could avoid the police a little few more times, but I don’t think can completely escape them. The news about them have gone public and out of hand, all I pray for is that when she got arrested for kidnapping, Hyun-jin’s news article on the whole story can help her clear her name, and ultimately become Hye-na’s legal custodian.
