Ghosts from the past are starting to haunt the evil people.
Geum Tae-woong’s Past
I always have this theory that Cho Sung-do (Kwon Hwa-woon) is the son of Geum Tae-woong (Jung Woong-in). It was so obvious that I’m not surprised with this episode’s revelation. I even thought Sung-do was a secret grandchild of a former Prime Minister (well, I got that totally wrong though haha).
It turned out Sung-do is the son of Tae-woon’s ‘hometown friend.’ Who is he kidding, really? The reason why he couldn’t let go of this lazy invaluable lackey is due to their blood relation. I also think Sung-do’s was his first love because I really believe Tae-woong was not this evil from the start. He must have gone through a very bad experience to develop such greed for power. Anyway, I would really like it if Sung-do will be used as a key plot device to dethrone Tae-woong. I somehow like this character despite his wimpiness
Director Bong’s Present
Speaking of supporting characters I like, Bong Man-ho (Jo Hee-bong) is certainly one of them. Sa Do-chan (Jang Geun-suk) adores Director Bong like his real older brother. He even skipped his bar exam to help Director Bong escape death. I really like how Director Bong’s character arc intertwined with the main plot. Apparently, Bong Ahjussi’s brother was killed by Jung Do-young (Choi Jae-Won) six years ago. It was fraud set-up and started by Do-chan’s own father Sa Ma-chun (Son Byung-ho) to catch Geum Tae-woong but it ended up tragically. Good thing, Do-chan and Oh Ha-ra (Han Ye-ri) worked well together in putting the fake politician Do-young in jail.
Baek Joon-soo’s Future
This is the part of my review where I have to reflect on all the bad comments I’ve made about Baek Joon-soo (lol). I already have an inkling but I was totally vexed with Joon-soo’s sudden flip. I also hate how it made Ha-ra so disappointed. But of course, it was another switch! Joon-soo and Do-chan planned everything. Geum Tae-woong finally caught on with their fraud after I was totally creep-out with his evil laugh. It would totally be ‘payback time’ for the humiliation Joon-soo and Do-chan brought to him.
Maknae’s Episode Verdict
This series is bad for my already huge trust issues. They keep on changing the course of the plot that it’s hard for me to guess what would happen next. Most of the time, such change would be bad for a series but it is definitely not the case for Switch: Change the World. The fast-paced story and its unexpected plot twists grab my attention and hold it until the end.
– He could be on my hot list but he’s totally evil so nah.
