Okay, it’s a jam-packed episode, but first things first. And when I say “first things first,” you know that I meant skinship! LOL. Bong Sang-pil (Lee Joon-gi) and Ha Jae-yi (Seo Ye-ji) just shared their very sweet first kiss in this episode! And not only that, they also shared their first night together! Omona, my Lee Joon-gi fangirl heart is so jealous of Seo Ye-ji. How I wish I can be her even just for a few seconds and be wrapped around oppa’s firm biceps. Pretty please, K-Drama genies? LOL. On a more serious note, this intimate moment between our main OTP is a crystal clear sign that Jae-yi is choosing Sang-pil over Judge Cha Moon-sook (Lee Hye-young), which is a major development in our lawless lawyer’s revenge plot.
THE MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF JAE-YI’S OMMA
Now let’s talk about that night when Jae-yi’s omma never came back. How could I come up with an absurd theory that she only got hit by the car the young Sang-pil and Detective Woo Hyung-man (Lee Dae-yeon) were riding when it flipped over? I wasn’t paying attention so I didn’t notice that she was tied with a rope when she hold on to Detective Woo to let the young Sang-pil flee. It was because she was also abducted just like Sang-pil due to her photos that captured one of the many crimes committed by Judge Cha and Pres. Ahn Oh-joo (Choi Min-soo).
Despite everything that Jae-yi learned about her mom’s case, she still decided to help Detective Woo get out of prison, and that to me is really admirable. But I guess Detective Woo somehow deserved being rescued because we all saw how much he loves his wife, who asked him to beg for forgiveness for all the wrongdoings that he did before she died.
Now here comes the biggest revelation as of yet. Jae-yi’s mom Noh Hyung-joo (Baek Joo-hee) is alive! And she’s living somewhere in Thailand. This only proves that Detective Woo is not as evil as Judge Cha and Pres. Ahn, and that he only did what he did to provide for his sick wife, though this doesn’t mean that he’s already off the rules of law.
But I wonder why Mrs. Noh didn’t contact her family all these years? It doesn’t seem to me that she has amnesia based on her reaction when Detective Woo mentioned to her about how her daughter saved him. Maybe she wants to protect her husband and daughter from harm because she knows what Judge Cha and Pres. Ahn can do once they learn that she’s alive. Her knowledge on their crimes as well as her photos that can serve as strong evidence against them can destroy these two evils in just one blow. I just hope that she stays strong until she receives the greatest reward to her sacrifices, and that is to be reunited with her family.
Pres. Ahn’s attempt to get Detective Woo back to his side only led to the latter’s acquittal. This is after the defense managed to present a video showing an investigator from the prosecution manipulating the evidence against Detective Woo. This forced Prosecutor Kang Yeon-hee (Cha Jung-won) to drop the charges against the detective, making him a free man.
I’m quite disappointed with Prosecutor Kang’s seeming jump to the dark side because I thought that Sang-pil might be right, that she wasn’t like her greedy omma. Or maybe Prosecutor Kang is planning something? Could it be possible that she officially joined “The Seven’s” gatherings so that she can observe their activities closely? I hope so!
P.S. Let’s all meet Geum Ja, Geum Gang’s dongsaeng. Her overflowing sassiness is an instant hit!
