Insider: Episodes 11-12
It is ultimately time for our hero to launch an offensive, and his master strategy requires off in complete swing. Backed by a myriad of allies, some anticipated and some unpredictable, he’s about to beat his enemies at their personal game.
EPISODES 11-12 WEECAP
Yo-han visits his grandmother’s grave to lay out an supplying, and he’s quickly joined by Jin-hyung. Astutely, Yo-han asks if it is Byung-wook who desires his head, considering the fact that there’d be no explanation for Jin-hyung to make such a drastic move otherwise.
Jin-hyung counters with his personal query — why is Byung-wook so fixated on Yo-han? In response, Yo-han gives to share his story, and that gets Jin-hyung on board.
In a different flashback, we see how Yo-han and Soo-yeon had convinced Seung-hwan more than. Hah, as anticipated, he cannot turn down their present when such a massive sum is involved.
Seung-hwan’s skeptical about their capability to fool Sun-oh, although, till Yo-han counters that it is not them — it is Seung-hwan who’s going to pull the wool more than Sun-oh’s eyes.
He does just that by pretending to be his driver on his stakeout for Director Jin, but when Sun-oh gets off to ambush her, Seung-hwan drives away the moment he’s out of sight. Jin-hyung’s guys abduct Director Jin prior to any individual else can get to her, leaving Sun-oh empty-handed.
Meanwhile, Yo-han effectively pulls off his card switch trick, beating Chairman Yang and winning the extremely VIP space they’re sitting in. Sadly, Chairman Yang is a sore loser, and he gets his guys to lock the doors.
He pulls a knife on the dealer, but Soo-yeon halts him in his tracks with a gun aimed suitable at him. Chairman Yang scoffs, considering it fake, but she shoots a bullet suitable into his thigh. No toy gun, this a single.
Yo-han and Soo-yeon adjust into employees uniforms so that they can wheel the injured Chairman Yang out in a cart with no arousing suspicion. It is not extended till their names and appearances are broadcasted more than the announcement technique, although, and Soo-yeon finds herself surrounded in the principal lobby.
Just in the nick of time, the lights go out — and by the time they come back on, Soo-yeon’s produced her escape. The camera pans to the particular person that helped her by cutting the lights… Wait, it is Hae-do???
Turns out Yo-han had saved Hae-do from the grave just after he’d been cast out by the Yang brothers, and he’d supplied the Bukyeongpa gang in exchange for an alliance with Hae-do.
Soo-yeon tends to make it safely to their hideout, exactly where she starts hacking into the Goldman slush fund technique. Back in the casino, Yo-han incites a tussle with Yang Hwa, although it immediately becomes a losing fight.
We quickly see why, although — Yo-han had coated his fingertips with an animal tranquilizer, and he requires benefit of Yang Hwa’s lowered guard to smear it on his skin. Yang Hwa collapses, and Yo-han utilizes his iris to pass the Goldman system’s two-issue authentication.
Correct in front of Yang Hwa’s eyes, Yo-han transfers all the revenue into an account for Min-ho. He’s ultimately avenged his death.
Sun-oh ultimately catches up to Seung-hwan, but the moment he gets into the automobile, Seung-hwan knocks him out with chloroform. A police automobile approaches, and Seung-hwan escapes in the nick of time — leaving an unconscious Sun-oh for the police to uncover.
They’re ecstatic about it, considering the fact that Sun-oh has a hefty bounty on his head, courtesy of Chairman Yang. Sun-oh is taken straight to Chairman Yang’s clutches, exactly where he and his brother demand to know exactly where Director Jin is. Of course, Sun-oh does not know, which only signifies his interrogation gets prolonged.
Yo-han also has pursuers hot on his heels, although he manages to shake them off and jump into a conveniently-placed taxi. Except the driver is Jae-sun, and he brandishes a pair of handcuffs — then laughs.
He’s not right here to arrest Yo-han rather, they’re in the very same boat now, considering the fact that Chairman Do has forged an alliance with the prosecutors.
Thanks to Jae-sun’s assistance, Yo-han escapes unscathed. He advises Jin-hyung to drive Director Jin out to a faraway place and let her go, considering the fact that dragging her about anyplace only puts them at threat of becoming caught.
Now that they’ve detached themselves from Jin-hyung, Yo-han and Soo-yeon enact the subsequent element of their strategy — catching Sun-oh.
Yo-han tends to make a contact to Yang Hwa, supplying the stolen slush funds in exchange for Sun-oh. He walks straight into the lion’s den, brandishing his telephone and threatening to donate all the revenue if the Yang brothers do not hold up their finish of the deal.
It functions, and Yo-han gets Sun-oh out prior to tossing the telephone with Min-ho’s account to Yang Hwa’s guys. Seung-hwan acts as a decoy, although Yo-han and Soo-yeon drive off with Sun-oh in the trunk.
Soo-yeon asks how Yo-han’s going to clarify the missing funds to Chairman Do, but he’s got it all covered. Thanks to Sang-ki, who specializes in underground monetary transactions, two accounts have been made below Min-ho’s name — a single corporate, and a single private.
A transaction among two accounts below the very same name does not arise suspicion, which signifies it goes via quickly. The Yang brothers can only watch helplessly as the balance in Min-ho’s corporate account drops to zero prior to they can retrieve even a single cent of it.
Although the rescue strategy was a good results, Yo-han fails to get a confession out of Sun-oh. With Min-ho dead and only his social media posts left, there’s insufficient proof to prove that Sun-oh murdered Yo-han’s grandmother.
Later on, Soo-yeon asks Yo-han why he’s hesitating to deal with Sun-oh, and if he’s really going to leave him to the law as an alternative of taking revenge. Yo-han admits that he’d vowed to rip his grandmother’s killer apart with his personal hands, but when he looked at Sun-oh, he saw each himself and Soo-yeon in him.
It is clear that regardless of Sun-oh’s apparent betrayal, Yo-han nevertheless feels empathy for him, and he asks Soo-yeon to give him some a lot more time.
A smug Chairman Do gloats that his strategy has succeeded, but Yo-han quickly nips his elation in the bud. Alternatively of transferring The Skin Nation shares to Chairman Do’s Dosan Holdings, Yo-han’s established his personal YH Holdings. On top rated of that, he has a message from Shinseondong — Chairman Do’s fired.
A flashback reveals that Yo-han had filled Shinseondong in on Chairman Yang’s mismanagement of their slush funds, and supplied to provide their revenue back to them — in exchange for the position of Goldman Casino’s manager, as properly as the new correspondent for Shinseondong.
It is all more than for Chairman Do, who’s sedated and taken to his usual grave-digging spot below Bon-chul’s watch. Sun-oh’s taken there as well, and Bon-chul reveals that Chairman Yang had Sun-oh’s father killed in order to take in his young gambling prodigy of a son.
The revelation stuns Sun-oh, and Bon-chul leaves him with a scalpel and a tied-up Chairman Do. A series of flashbacks reveal that Chairman Do had ordered Sun-oh to kill Yo-han’s grandmother in order to isolate him and steer him towards operating for Chairman Do, although we do not see Sun-oh in fact carrying out the deed.
Sun-oh raises the scalpel to strike Chairman Do, but he collapses and passes out from the blood loss very first. Chairman Yang arrives with his henchmen, obtaining received the address from Bon-chul, and he requires each guys away.
Whoops, appears like that wasn’t in fact element of the strategy, considering the fact that Yo-han confronts Bon-chul for taking matters into his personal hands and throwing Sun-oh away. Bon-chul lets Yo-han listen to the recording he took, in which Chairman Yang tells his guys to take Sun-oh to the incinerator. Noooo.
Yang Hwa also receives a text from Bon-chul, containing Soo-yeon’s address. He quickly heads more than to capture her, only to stroll straight into a trap laid by Jae-sun. Yang Hwa is arrested for the attempted murder of Hae-do and taken into custody.
Annie fires each the Yang brothers, and instates Yo-han in their location. He’s officially the new manager of the Goldman Casino.
Elsewhere, an unconscious Sun-oh is dragged into a makeshift incinerator. The henchman sets the wooden planks on fire, trapping Sun-oh inside — but suitable as the door closes, Sun-oh opens his eyes.
Following all the trials and tribulations he’s been via, Yo-han is ultimately climbing his way up the ladder of the illicit gambling realm, and it is so satisfying to watch. Just as he was after produced use of, he’s learnt how to take benefit of his enemies’ blind spots to catch them off guard. It is like reading your opponents’ tells and habits at the gambling table, except with life or death as the stakes. Yo-han is not afraid to go all in, and the higher threat generally signifies higher rewards.
I especially like how he’s managed to convert prior adversaries into allies, by exploiting discontent amongst the negative guys and supplying their underlings specifically what they really want to entice them into switching sides. It creates a network of grudging but loyal allies, considering the fact that they cannot betray Yo-han with no compromising their personal self-interest.
At very first, I questioned the have to have for so numerous antagonists, considering the fact that the sprawling cast had me scrambling to preserve up with names for a although. But this episode washed away my reservations, for the reason that it is ultimately beginning to all come collectively, and I like how the diverse villains each and every fill a niche that adds character and colour to the show.
Sun-oh continues to break my heart, each with the way he looked so disbelieving that Yo-han came to save him, and with the reveal of his tragic backstory. He’s been manipulated considering the fact that as well young an age, and it is totally appalling how completely Chairman Yang and Chairman Do traumatized him, all to mold him into an obedient small pawn. I cannot wait for him to enact vengeance upon his abusers.
The drama has a way of creating us root for its characters, even (or possibly specially) these who are morally gray a single such instance is Seung-hwan. His a single-track thoughts towards revenue is amusingly endearing, and I’m glad Yo-han’s located an ally in him. Sun-oh did mention that Seung-hwan’s suffering from an illness, although, which has me worried. I’m not prepared to shed him just however!
And of course, I cannot leave out Soo-yeon, whose quiet strength and suppressed vulnerability are wonderfully portrayed by Lee Yoo-young. I like that her fortitude is not unwavering — on the contrary, she does waver, but she usually finds the resilience to forge ahead anyway. That is correct courage in my book.
