“Don’t forgive me… forever…” ~ Detective Woo Hyung-man
RIP, DETECTIVE WOO
Detective Woo (Lee Dae-yeon) is now dead, and though I expected this to happen because I know that Pres. Ahn Oh-joo (Choi Min-soo) won’t let him get away especially after he betrayed him, I didn’t think that he’d get killed this early in the drama. I actually thought that it was so reckless of him to show himself up in front of Pres. Ahn as if he was surrendering himself to his killer. And it was a mistake not to pull the trigger and kill this evil, who by the way is now the new Mayor of Gisung, when he had the chance!
If Detective Woo knew that he couldn’t kill Pres. Ahn himself, he should’ve joined forces with Bong Sang-pil (Lee Joon-gi) and Ha Jae-yi (Seo Ye-ji) to expose the new Mayor and Judge Cha Moon-sook’s (Lee Hye-young) crimes instead. It’s true that the documents that he gave Jae-yi put “The Seven’s” banker, who is now the new Ohjoo Group chairman, in legal interrogation for deliberate bankruptcy, but I believe that Detective Woo could’ve helped Sang-pil and Jae-yi more if he lived a bit longer.
Now, this whole deliberate bankruptcy controversy put Pres. Ahn in jeopardy as he now needs to transfer all his shares from his own company to the charity foundation of Judge Cha’s late father to cut off his ties with the embattled banker. HAH! Judge Cha’s tactics to take advantage of this situation left me speechless. I can’t wait to see who between her and Pres. Ahn will win once the latter retaliates.
THE RETURN OF THE ‘DEAD’
We need not worry about who will help Sang-pil and Jae-yi now that Detective Woo is dead because Jae-yi’s omma is finally back in Korea. I don’t know what Detective Woo told her over the phone, but I’m sure that they have a plan against Pres. Ahn and Judge Cha.
It’s now also clear to me why she didn’t contact her family all these years, and that’s because it’s the condition Detective Woo gave her in exchange for her life. It’s understandable because once Mrs. Noh Hyung-joo (Baek Joo-hee) contacts her family, there’s a chance that Pres. Ahn would discover that Detective Woo didn’t really kill her, which will put the two of them in greater danger.
It’s just so heartbreaking to think that she lost 18 years’ worth of precious time with her husband and daughter because she witnessed and produced evidence of Pres. Ahn and Judge Cha’s crime. Eighteen years of absence is surely long, but was that enough for a daughter not to remember the face of her own mother? Aside from the new haircut, everything about Mrs. Noh’s appearance is just the same that’s why I was quite unconvinced when Jae-yi didn’t recognize her right away when they met face to face at Detective Woo’s funeral.
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
Does Judge Cha think that getting Jae-yi’s suspension lifted would get her back to her side? I could feel how shaken she was when Jae-yi threatened her that she would bring her to trial. Maybe because Judge Cha really adores Jae-yi like her own daughter, the same way she treasured Sang-pil’s mom before?
It’s sad to think how Judge Cha managed to kill Sang-pil’s mom just to stop her from investigating her over the photos that Jae-yi’s mom captured. So, it’s like Sang-pil and Jae-yi are continuing what their mothers failed to accomplish, and I truly hope that they succeed this time.
P.S. I wonder what did Sang-pil whisper to Jae-yi for her to annoyingly shout “Hajima!” Ooops, I’m starting to have naughty thoughts here! 😂😂😂
