K-Drama Reaction: Switch | Episodes 17-18

Who else want to punch Baek Joon-soo in the face?!

Jealousy Turns to Rage

Baek Joon-soo (Jang Geun-suk) really betrayed Sa Do-chan (Jang Geun-suk) and Oh Ha-ra (Han Ye-ri). I still had this little hope inside of me that he was doing it for a good reason but it seems to me that he is just plain jealous. He wanted his position back and he’d do everything, including joining hands with the enemies. Although I hate Joon-soo right now, there could still be a possibility that he is doing this to gather inside information from that influential circle. He is doing it despite his health condition. He could still be the real hero in the end. We’ll never know, especially with an unpredictable drama like Switch.

Rage Turns To Mistake

Oh Ha-ra gave Joon-soo one more chance, warning him that she is investigating the District Prosecutor. He had his chance and he let it pass. It was revealed he asked Geum Tae-woong (Jung Woong-in) to spare Ha-ra from harm, which makes me think he really cares about Ha-ra. BUT when you care about someone, you express it to them through actions AND words. Ha-ra has no idea about Joon-soo’s feelings so she’s really hurt with his betrayal. This made me symphatize a bit with Joon-soo. If he is really still in pursuit of justice, then he’s sacrificing his personal relationship for this. Joon-soo is losing his tight grip to Ha-ra. The woman he cares would be gone before he realize it.

Maknae’s Episode Verdict

So this episode did not yet subside my frustration with Joon-soo’s actions. Good thing, I trust Do-chan and his clever tricks to escape their enemies’ traps. With the way things are right now, I’m guessing Joon-soo’s would play a big role in the end. We just don’t know yet which side he is in.
