Is anybody nonetheless respiratory after the midway mark of “Flower of Evil”? The new episodes are nothing in need of soul-crushing as the connection between Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) and Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won) continues to take heavy blows. If you haven’t watched but, you should definitely hold some tissues by your facet. Full of heartbreaking twists and turns, listed here are the issues we liked and hated about episodes 7 and eight.
Warning spoilers for the episodes under.
LOVED: Cha Ji Won testing Baek Hee Sung
Every week, Cha Ji Won proves that she is nothing in need of superb. Determined to resolve the case and search for a cause to forgive her husband, she takes massive dangers by revealing all of her fingers to Hee Sung. She drops Hyun Soo’s duffel bag in entrance of him and talks about its contents, particularly the tape recorder, and analyzes Hee Sung’s response. Later on, she brings him to Do Min Seok’s workshop and performs his cassette tape to try to uncover who Hee Sung actually is.
Talk about intense, proper? Both actors do such a implausible job of capturing the characters’ feelings. Moon Chae Won effortlessly masters the anger that Ji Won feels, in addition to the love and fear she nonetheless has for Hee Sung. Lee Joon Gi is nothing in need of unimaginable when he portrays the extreme panic that Hee Sung harbors. These scenes supply up so many feelings. On one hand, it’s painful to observe Hee Sung be traumatized once more because the viewers is aware of that he’s not a killer, and even worse, Ji Won is the one one that has at all times believed in him. However, Ji Won isn’t aware of the data the viewers is aware of. While her ways appear merciless, there is no such thing as a excellent strategy to react to this. After 14 years, she has found her husband has been mendacity to her and might be a harmful killer. She needs to get to the reality rapidly and earlier than anybody else finds out. Instead of being absorbed in heartbreak, she makes use of her expertise as a detective to interrogate Hee Sung. When she believes she’s pushed him too far, she instantly helps him. These scenes showcase Ji Won’s battle as each a detective and spouse rather well, and it’s each spectacular and heartbreaking to observe how she handles it.
LOVED: Hee Sung reuniting with Do Hae Soo
The household reunion we’ve all been ready for lastly occurred. After analyzing the recording of his father’s confederate, Hee Sung decides that he has to hunt out his sister Do Hae Soo (Jang Hee Jin). After receiving a location to satisfy her from Mu Jin (Seo Hyun Woo), the pair reunite on the deserted swimming pool. They share a hug as Hae Soo cries tears of reduction and happiness upon lastly see her brother once more. Later on, they’re cooped up shoulder-to-shoulder and filling one another in on what occurred throughout their time aside.
These scenes are so healthful. These two have suffered a lot, and it was nice to see them be collectively. From the flashback of the village foreman’s homicide to Hee Sung’s keen confessions about his household, viewers can really feel the deep sibling bond they share. They would do something to guard one another and ensure that the opposite resides fortunately. The hope is that they not get separated once more for a very long time after this, as they each need to be blissful and be current in one another’s lives.
LOVED: Ji Won’s telephone name with Eun Ha
If there’s any character who can loosen up the heavy temper of the present, it’s Baek Eun Ha (Jung Seo Yeon). After leaving the deserted constructing Hee Sung was at along with his sister, Ji Won receives a telephone name from her daughter. Eun Ha brightly exhibits off a drawing she product of their household and their dwelling. Through tears, Ji Won smiles and tells Eun Ha she loves her, and Eun Ha says she loves her too, simply as a lot as she loves her dad.
This scene melts your coronary heart. While the present is jammed full of lovable scenes of Hee Sung and Eun Ha, it’s superior that we lastly have one with Eun Ha and Ji Won. No matter how Ji Won’s relationship seems with Hee Sung, there is no such thing as a denying that Eun Ha is a treasured reward that they made collectively. Eun Ha couldn’t have supplied her dose of cuteness for her mother at a extra excellent time even when she tried.
HATED: Ji Won overhearing that Hee Sung has by no means liked her
The most agonizing scene from these episodes is when Ji Won eavesdrops on Hae Soo and Hee Sung. Curious about his life, Hae Soo asks about Hee Sung’s household and finally asks him if he has ever liked Ji Won. Hee Sung admits that he has by no means liked her and that he isn’t able to feeling such feelings. Ji Won’s fist curls up and he or she leaves the constructing.
While the angst-lover in me is flourishing from this scene, it’s nonetheless troublesome to abdomen. This completely crushes Ji Won. Even although she laments that she shouldn’t have anticipated him to reply anything, typically you simply can’t assist how you are feeling. She has liked Hee Sung so wholly, and to find that this entire time he has by no means liked her, even after having a toddler collectively, is downright melancholic. Considering shortly after this scene that she takes off her wedding ceremony ring, it doesn’t appear to be their relationship will make it. Hopefully, because the drama enters into its second half, Ji Won and Hee Sung can develop again collectively.
HATED: Kim Mu Jin’s self-righteous perspective
Despite being proved mistaken about Hee Sung’s innocence time and time once more, Mu Jin by no means appears to truly imagine it. After Hee Sung calls out Mu Jin for utilizing their investigation time as a strategy to win again Hae Soo, Mu Jin throws Hee Sung’s incapability to really feel feelings in his face. He calls Hee Sung irregular and claims no regular individual would ever wish to keep by his facet.
Mu Jin’s pleasure actually will get one of the best of him right here. His tangent about how he’s the traditional one feels somewhat hypocritical contemplating how he dumped Hae Soo prior to now and in addition stoned Hee Sung after tying him as much as a tree. Not to say he doesn’t partake on this form of goading with Hae Soo, who he now is aware of is the one who killed the village foreman. Since he has considered her as the traditional sibling, he tries to know and rationalize her actions regardless of not providing the identical kindness and respect to Hee Sung. His self-righteous perspective actually exhibits off his shortcomings and narrow-minded considering and makes his character unenjoyable. Hopefully, as extra truths of the previous come to mild, hopefully he’ll change his conduct and mind-set.
