EPISODES five-six WEECAP
Whilst Seul-bi and Su-kwang get pleasure from their road trip to Busan, our friendly neighborhood loan shark, WANG YOON-HO (Kim Dong-young), gets orders from gang overlords to capture a fugitive for their unnamed client. Yep, it is Seul-bi, and Yoon-ho tries to throw them off the scent by claiming he saw her someplace far away. In Busan, to be precise. Oops.
He calls Su-kwang to warn him as quickly as he realizes the error. Luckily, the only gang members who cross their path in Busan do not recognize Seul-bi, as she’s practicing silly-face selfies with the new telephone Su-kwang has just purchased her.
The warning does make Su-kwang ponder his increasing suspicions about Seul-bi. He lastly confronts her, asking if they really should meet with the individuals who are hunting for her. Seul-bi says no, but will not clarify why. She does, even so, confess that she likes him and desires to keep with him forever.
Su-kwang is undoubtedly smitten with her, but cannot bring himself to say so, also frustrated with her lies and also afraid of losing her like he’s lost absolutely everyone else he cared about. He lets her query of “Do you not like me?” go unanswered.
Upon returning to Seoul, Seul-bi mopes to her new shop owner pals about getting rejected. They coach her on how to win Su-kwang’s affections, which turns out about as silly and unnecessary as most of their scenes, specially thinking of she currently has his affection. And anyway, there are significantly larger difficulties to deal with.
Turns out, there are numerous individuals just after Seul-bi. One particular of them is Min-joon’s cousin, SUN DONG-SIK (Choi Jung-woo). He’s miffed at getting left out of huge family members secrets, and he’s picked up from eavesdropping that Seul-bi has particular powers.
Wanting to see her in action, he launches an elaborate strategy to force her hand. Very first, he lures Su-kwang to an abandoned constructing with a fake delivery order. Then he has loan shark Dae-sik (the one particular who attempted to sell Seul-bi to traffickers ahead of) kidnap Seul-bi.
As soon as they’re each tied up, Dong-sik watches by means of hidden cameras as Seul-bi jostles Su-kwang awake and they struggle to no cost themselves. Sooner or later, Dong-sik gets impatient and remotely switches on a bomb he’s mounted on the wall in front of them.
Seeing the countdown commence provides Seul-bi and Su-kwang the burst of adrenaline they will need to extract themselves from their bonds. But they’re nevertheless locked in the constructing, and they’ve made use of most of the ten minutes just having untied.
With only seconds left, Su-kwang turns to Seul-bi in despair. Taking his hands, she promises all the things will be okay. Then she closes her eyes and, for a moment, time stops. When it resumes, the bomb has frozen with one particular second remaining – but Su-kwang only gets about that identical quantity of time to celebrate ahead of Seul-bi collapses unconscious in his arms.
That is when Yoon-ho once again comes to their rescue. He’d coincidentally been on the telephone with Seul-bi at the time of her capture, and followed the clues she left to the abandoned constructing.
Obtaining it locked, and Min-joon engaged in a scuffle outdoors with Dong-sik’s lackeys (Dong-sik lured him there, also), Yoon-ho jumps into Su-kwang’s truck and crashes it by means of the side of the constructing. Then he drives them to security virtually ahead of Dong-sik has time to react.
To be fair, Dong-sik wasn’t truly attempting to kill them – the “bomb” wouldn’t have harmed them even if it had gone off. What he truly wanted was confirmation about Seul-bi’s energy. And he got it, even if he couldn’t see what she did.
Aside from scraped wrists and a sudden overnight fever on Seul-bi’s component, each she and Su-kwang are largely unharmed, but Su-kwang is much more disturbed than ever about what Seul-bi is not telling him. Once more, he asks for answers, and once again, she deflects. And then there’s the matter of her necklace.
When Dae-sik kidnapped her, he also stole the necklace, hoping to pawn it off. But the jeweler dismisses it as a worthless rock, and when Dae-sik tries to put on it, it actually attaches itself to his neck and tends to make him break out in rashes all more than.
Desperate, he returns to the fish shop and begs them to get it off him. To everyone’s fearful astonishment, it comes off effortlessly in Su-kwang’s hand, and right away the rashes disappear.
Yoon-ho additional secures his spot as my favored character by decking Dae-sik and then dragging him up to a rooftop to interrogate him and toss him into a dumpster, warning that this is his final opportunity to leave Seul-bi alone. Then he tasks Dae-sik with having to the bottom of specifically who is just after her.
The point is, even though, the answer to that query keeps altering. Chairman Sun is going by means of a weird phase exactly where he decides Seul-bi’s mother is a particular person just after all and that he’s in appreciate with her once again. Soon after rescuing her from the oddly murderous caretaker, he begins consuming meals with her and letting her out into his workplace location.
Seul-bi’s mother alternates among resentment and pity, hinting that Chairman Sun may well have been a kinder particular person as soon as, ahead of his father’s influence and greed corrupted him. If it is supposed to make us really feel sorry for him, it does not operate, but it does preserve me hoping that possibly Min-joon can be the one particular to break the cycle and willingly let go.
Chairman Sun goes so far as to get in touch with off the search for Seul-bi and supply to let Min-joon run the business his way rather of relying on “talismans.” But, of course, as quickly as he hears his brother (Dong-sik’s father) is hunting for Seul-bi, he desires her back in his personal possession once again. Min-joon also doubles down on wanting to bring her back and “protect” her, even though Seul-bi’s mother ominously warns that he’ll be in danger if he does.
And the final particular person hunting for Seul-bi? Her father, newly released from prison. He gets a tip on her whereabouts and goes straight to the fish shop. He’s so speechless with emotion that he just lets her and Su-kwang think he’s right here to apply as a delivery driver.
Meanwhile, Su-kwang’s feelings for Seul-bi are only having stronger in spite of himself. He hits a breaking point one particular stormy evening when he rushes residence to discover her undertaking her absolute finest to preserve his books dry from the leaky roof. They’re his old enterprise textbooks, and when she says she’s guarding them since they’re his hopes and dreams, his heart visibly melts.
Pulling her close for a kiss, he declares her much more valuable to him than something else, deciding to concentrate on the right here and now rather of worrying about losing her someday.
And Seul-bi has no intention of leaving, either. A handful of days later, she surprises him with a renovated apartment and a guarantee to keep collectively forever. But the moment their hands touch, her face falls. “Don’t go, Su-kwang,” she begs in her faraway, future-seeing voice.
