Once more My Life: Episodes 9-10

There’s a saying that even the most effective laid plans will collapse, and as we construct up for the potential takedown of not one — however many — politicians and corrupt people, the convenience with which our time touring lawyer is forming alliances and constructing his case is way too disconcerting.

 
EPISODES 9-10 WEECAP

Though Seok-hoon tells Hee-woo to go after Il-hyun, he doesn’t actually imply it. He simply needs to scare Seok-hoon just a little bit, however in fact Hee-woo, who has his personal secret agenda, takes Seok-hoon’s request actually and finishes the investigation shortly. He even holds a press convention and delivers an eloquent speech concerning the failures of the prosecution workplace and guarantees that they’ll restore the general public’s religion.

At first, Seok-hoon is upset, particularly since Hee-woo dropped his title in the course of the press convention, however Seok-hoon adjustments his tune when it seems that Hee-woo’s skillful manipulation of the press prompted Seok-hoon’s approval ranking to climb. Folks even start speculating that he would be the subsequent lawyer basic.

Whereas Hee-woo builds up Seok-hoon’s public picture, he drives a wedge between greatest buds Il-hyun and Kang-jin, whose personal ambitions — and crimes — make him need to preserve Il-hyun behind bars. Together with his sunbae out of the way in which, Kang-jin can transfer up in rank on the prosecutors’ workplace.

Pfft! As if Hee-woo would permit that to occur! Nope, he’s additionally received a plan to convey Kang-jin down, too. Whereas Il-hyun and his pianist girlfriend had been embezzling cash, Kang-jin was introducing the actresses at his father’s leisure firm to politicians and — that is simply gross — sexual favors had been exchanged. So basically, Daddy Choi was performing like a pimp and utilizing his son Kang-jin because the dealer. (Excuse me whereas I’m going take a bathe. That is simply so icky.)

Hee-woo decides the easiest way to take down Kang-jin is to go after Daddy Choi, and with Gyu-ri’s assist, they start to construct a case towards him. Min-soo, who suspiciously all the time is aware of what Hee-woo is as much as, offers him extra proof towards Daddy Choi, who was not solely pimping out his actresses and forcing them to get cosmetic surgery, but additionally forging false army exemptions for his male actors. (I can’t assist however really feel like that final crime has to hit Hee-woo personally since, you understand, he needed to serve twice.)

Whereas Hee-woo escorts his buddy Min-soo residence, one other act of seemingly divine intervention happens. Hee-woo notices a person with rope wrapped round his hand stroll previous them, and Hee-woo’s spidey sense begins tingling. He accurately guessed that the person was stalking a girl with the intention of killing her.

And who’s that lady? Nicely, she’s the daughter of Assemblyman HWANG JIN-YONG (Yoo Dong-geun), who is seemingly the one first rate human being working in South Korean politics. Oh, and he additionally occurs to be Han-mi’s ingesting buddy as a result of she used to tutor his daughter. Speak about a small world. Not one to query the fortuitous alternative, Hee-woo will get Han-mi to make an introduction. He needs to type an alliance with Jin-yong and take down Tae-sub collectively, however Jin-yong doesn’t belief prosecutors. (I ponder why?)

He coolly rejects Hee-woo’s provide, however Hee-woo warns that there’s a leak amongst Jin-yong’s followers, and, positive sufficient, his individuals all flip towards him and be part of palms with Tae-sub. The incident predictably makes him extra open to trusting Hee-woo, and the 2 meet in secret, the place Hee-woo offers him a file containing a listing of politicians who’ve dedicated varied crimes.

Jin-yong takes the data and opens the proverbial Pandora’s field on stay tv throughout a basic meeting. As Hee-woo predicted, this transfer elevated the general public’s opinion of Jin-yong, but it surely had the unlucky aspect impact of constructing and strengthening Tae-sub’s political alliances as nicely.

All of the corrupt politicians on the checklist flip to Tae-sub for assist, and whereas he can’t promise to avoid wasting all of them — he’s received to provide the general public some names or else will probably be an apparent cowl up — he assures those that are to be sacrificed that they may even be taken care of in different methods. This second was very paying homage to scenes sometimes seen in sageuks, the place a political faction bows and pledges their allegiance to some non-crown prince earlier than making an attempt to overthrow the royal household. The fashionable setting makes it all of the extra creepy, although.

From then on, issues simply preserve going downhill for Hee-woo. Seok-hoon tells Hee-woo to research the names on Jin-yong’s checklist, however the checklist of politicians he offers to Hee-woo has been closely edited at Tae-sub’s request. The actress that was going to be Gyu-ri’s witness towards Daddy Choi recanted her assertion, and the physician who solid all of the army exemptions fled the nation. (*facepalm* Hee-woo, did you not study something out of your previous life?! What number of witnesses have you ever misplaced now?)

Oh, and maybe the largest insult of all, Kang-jin’s case is dismissed due to inadequate proof. He then turns round arrests his personal father, which fits over extraordinarily nicely with the general public; they now sees him as a justice-upholding saint. The one one who really will get his simply desserts is Il-hyun, who’s sentenced to seven years in jail. One down, and solely a billion corrupt people to go!

Whereas all of this politicking was occurring, Hee-ah was doing her greatest to stay impartial whereas her brothers fought over firm dominance. Sadly, the peaceable household life she aspires to have can’t be maintained. Her father’s declining well being, Tae-sub’s not-so-subtle makes an attempt to intrude with the corporate, and her brothers’ poor enterprise ethics and scandals trigger her to begrudgingly comply with her father’s needs. She turns into the corporate’s director of administration and planning.

She meets up with Hee-woo, and he or she tells him she’s bidding him — and the straightforward life she so desperately needed — goodbye. He takes her hand, buys her doll from a road vendor, and provides her one remaining bittersweet second of normalcy earlier than she heads off to battle and the life she’d desperately averted.

Sadly, her new place within the firm instantly sows seeds of discontent, and her quibbling brothers KIM YONG-JOON (Jeon Seung-bin) and KIM SUNG-JOON (Moon Jung-ki) stop fireplace lengthy sufficient to precise their mutual betrayal at her sudden curiosity in working the corporate.

Yong-joon feels threatened sufficient that he seeks out Tae-sub to try to make a deal, however Tae-sub’s situation — that Yong-joon stop his plan to restructure the corporate — suspiciously aligns with Hee-ah’s beliefs. After Yong-joon leaves, Tae-sub ominously talks a few “nice star” that’s about to fall. Is he speaking concerning the dying Geong-young… or Hee-ah?
