The thrilling chase between Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won) and Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) has formally begun within the newest episodes of “Flower of Evil.” Packed with grandeur and diabolical reveals, this week’s episodes solely muddied up the mysteries of the previous. Perhaps Hee Sung isn’t the assassin he confessed to being within the premiere episodes. Like any nice thriller drama, “Flower of Evil” continues to ship an intense and gripping plot that leaves viewers aching for extra. Here are the issues we cherished and hated about episodes Three and 4.
Warning: spoilers for episodes Three and Four beneath.
LOVED: Baek Hee Sung not being the serial killer
Even although Hee Sung did boldly admit he killed the village foreman to a restrained Kim Mu Jin (Seo Hyun Woo) final week, this week’s episodes had him alibi out for the brutal homicide of Nam Soon Gil (Lee Kyu Bok). In truth, Mu Jin is the explanation he alibis out of each the homicide and the assault of Oh Bok Ja (Park Seung Tae), a girl who may determine Hee Sung as Do Hyun Soo to the authorities. First Mu Jin figures out that Hee Sung was with him on the time of the homicide, and through the second assault, Hee Sung is hiding and ready for Mu Jin’s sign to steal again the picture.
While the premiere episodes positively appeared to solid some doubt on whether or not or not Hee Sung is responsible of horrible issues, these episodes appear to clear Hee Sung of any suspicion to the viewers. It additionally calls in to query how a lot his confession from the premiere episode is true. There have to be extra to the story than the snippet we noticed final week of him standing over the village foreman’s lifeless physique along with his sister. Even when offered with the chance throughout episode Three to kill Mu Jin, he lets him go as a substitute as a result of the cops are on the lookout for him. One would assume that may give a killer extra incentive to kill his sufferer, however Hee Sung makes a distinct selection. Since he’s not the serial killer, it begs the query of how the present will fulfill its premise. Will Ji Won actually suspect Hee Sung to be a killer? Even after discovering his watch, the sneak peek for episodes 5 and 6 appear to recommend she is going to consider him as a sufferer. Of course, it’s nonetheless early so it’s straightforward to imagine that some main plot twists might be on the best way. Either approach, Hee Sung’s character has grown extra intriguing, and will probably be thrilling to see how he clears his title.
LOVED: Hee Sung teaming up with Kim Mu Jin
Much like our charming trio of detectives final week, this week’s episodes showcase the superior dynamic between Mu Jin and Hee Sung. Once Mu Jin figures out that Hee Sung isn’t the assassin the police are on the lookout for, he suggests they group up collectively to unravel the crime themselves. It’s a win-win state of affairs as a result of Mu Jin will get an unique, and Hee Sung can clear his title.
While there’s a certain quantity of rigidity between the pair given their troubled historical past, their scenes are fairly gratifying. Considering they each have dedicated horrible acts towards the opposite, their alliance appears relatively sturdy. Despite being terrified of Hee Sung, Mu Jin nonetheless doesn’t hesitate to try to use soiled reporter methods to get the reality of the previous. While Hee Sung does darken when he catches Mu Jin, he nonetheless opens up about his relationship with Ji Won afterward. There is a deep sense of camaraderie between them which makes their dynamic enjoyable to look at.
LOVED: Hee Sung’s hallucination of his father throughout his combat with Soon Gil
A pivotal scene within the latest episodes is the flashback scene between Hee Sung and Soon Gil. Soon Gil assaults Hee Sung within the woods, however his try is foiled when Hee Sung will get the higher hand. As Hee Sung straddles Soon Gil and is poised to kill him, he abruptly sees his father. Hee Sung’s complete demeanor clams up as his father tries to goad him into killing Soon Gil.
The hallucination of Hee Sung’s father Do Min Seok (Choi Byung Mo) is admittedly chilling. Those demon eyes? Cue intense shudders. However, this scene is a superb parallel to Ji Won’s scene with Park Seo Young (Lee Ju Yeon) final week. Hee Sung had the chance to offer in to violence and as a substitute chooses to not. Of all of the scenes that talk to Hee Sung’s innocence, this scene actually pushes viewers to surprise if he’s the killer everybody has made him out to be. He doesn’t appear to need to be a part of his father or be like him in any approach. Instead, he appears terrified of his father like everybody else.
LOVED: Hee Sung defending Ji Won
One of one of the best scenes from this week’s episodes is the chase between Hee Sung and Ji Won. After arriving at Bok Ja’s home to retrieve the image, Ji Won runs into Hee Sung, who she assumes to be Hyun Soo. They chase one another down the street into an empty warehouse the place they’ve an intense combat. After disarming Ji Won subsequent to a shelf, Hee Sung notices that some sharp instruments are going to fall. Instead of leaving, he jumps forth and protects Ji Won to bear the brunt of the instruments for her.
From the drama’s promotions by the premiere episodes, one of many greatest questions that remained was if Hee Sung actually cares about Ji Won. Judging from this scene, one may argue that he does. If he didn’t care about her in any respect, wouldn’t he have simply walked away? She had no concept it was him. Instead, he selected to not and risked being caught to guard her. While Hee Sung claims he doesn’t really feel this stuff, the present does an ideal job of mixing in scenes that show that he does even when he doesn’t notice it. No matter how their relationship will end up with the episodes to return, it appears their love story might be one for the storybooks.
HATED: The exorcism flashback
An excruciating scene to look at this week is Hee Sung’s flashback of the townspeople dragging him to carry out an exorcism. In episode 3, Mu Jin notes that they thought he was bizarre and didn’t know that he actually suffered from an anti-social persona dysfunction. Then in episode Four as Mu Jin drives by the city, Hee Sung remembers the place the place the attacked occurred. He seizes in ache and covers his face because the reminiscence performs in his thoughts.
This scene is painful to look at, and it opens up the dialogue on the lack of expertise and consciousness about psychological sickness. While the previous continues to be murky and never all of Hee Sung’s actions have been defined, he positively didn’t should be traumatized for his father’s crimes. Since it looks as if Hee Sung is harmless, this scene feels much more heartbreaking. Earlier within the episodes, Ji Won wonders how his dad may’ve influenced his anti-social persona, however what in regards to the townspeople who harassed him? Hee Sung deserved to be handled with kindness and respect, and the villagers clearly failed him when he was youthful as a result of their personal biases.
