Quick summary: Ex-detective Kang Tae-Woo (starring Kim Kang-Woo) is hot on the tails of our impotent duo: Seo-Yeon (starring Jung Seo-Yeon) and Lee Jae-Hoon (starring Lee Ji-Hoon). Seo-Yeon and Jae-Hoon fight over who holds onto the money. Along the way, they accidentally get caught and have to deal with another mouth quiet. Jae-Hoon wants to use the money ASAP to take care of his own emergency. Seo-Yoon stays rational and tries to persuade him not to but fails.
Didn’t expect Tae-Woo to find out so quickly
It’s only the third episode and Detective Kang Tae-Woo already has a good idea of who the culprits are who stole the money. He literally tails Jae-Hoon the entire episode and Jae-Hoon does not notice. The plot is progressing far quicker than I predicted, which is really good because that means it’s not just going to be a simple cat-and-mouse plot.
The duo has problems communicating
I’m a tiny bit annoyed at the inability of Seo-Yeon and Jae-Hoon to both communicate with each and to think their plan through. Many times in this episode, their actions seemed to be very rash. That’s how they are getting caught so quickly but Tae-Woo. I’m hoping that Seo-Yeon can really shine and ditch Jae-Hoon all together. He is definitely her weakest link.
A few predictions:
I like the plot so far. Looks like it is going to be much more complex than what we have seen so far. I still believe that Seo-Yeon and Tae-Woo are going to team up together. And if that’s going to be the case, I think Seo-Yeon is going to convince Tae-Woo that she isn’t what he is after and that if they team up together they can try to get what each of them wants. For Seo-Yeon, she will try to get the money and at the same time, help Tae-Woo investigate the mystery of Daeyeong Tech and his brother’s past.
