Our characters do a tiny genre hopping this week, as they 1st tackle a riddle-filled treasure hunt and then bounce on to a horror-themed story involving an obsessive stalker. As usual, every case brings our major couple closer, but maybe it is a bit also close for our major lady to deal with.

The Law Cafe: Episodes 11-12

Right after Yuri and Jung-ho’s official reconciliation and agreement to let go of their damaging feelings, they right away move forward with a program to block Pyun-woong’s bid to take more than Dohan Group. With a flourish, Jung-ho shows Yuri his conspiracy theory chalkboard and giant stack of relevant case files, and as she stares in appreciation at the mound of proof he’s collected more than the years, Jung-ho reveals the 1st stage of his scheme. It needs his mother — namely, the organization shares willed to her upon his grandmother’s death.

Jung-ho and Yuri effectively sway further crucial shareholders to their side and protect against Pyun-woong from usurping his father, but Byung-wook does not stay the organization chairman for lengthy. As portion of a deal he created with Jung-ho, Byung-wook resigns, and his final act as Dohan Group’s leader is to implement a new policy that dismantles the company’s familial succession line.

Hence, Pyun-woong can no longer just inherit the chairperson position. Can he nevertheless murder and blackmail his way to the leading? Nicely, that is nevertheless to be determined, but I wouldn’t place it previous him to attempt.

The outcome of the shareholder meeting is a befitting punishment for Pyun-woong, whose illegitimacy is a key point of contention and a supply of insecurity for him, but without having the organization takeover as a indicates for Pyun-woong to punish his father and to assert his legitimacy in the household, he’s most likely to unleash a new level of unhinged maliciousness. And, of course, Yuri (getting Yuri) fans the flames of Pyun-woong’s current defeat by brake-checking him in the parking lot.

I cannot say that I blame her for zero-to-sixying her vehicle towards Pyun-woong and vengefully reenacting her hit-and-run accident (that he’d so definitely orchestrated), but she should really know by now that Pyun-woong is sadistic. He’s going to see her actions as a challenge — or a weird type of flirtation — and as quickly as he’s performed with his childish temper tantrum he’s going to come for her and Jung-ho.

In the meantime, Group Cafe moves forward with Yuri’s most current case, which was introduced final week. Interestingly, what began out as a basic — but sometimes physically violent — dispute among siblings more than their inheritance turns into a riddle-filled mystery. Yuri’s client received a cryptic poem from her dying father.

The poem leads Yuri and her crack group of detectives on a treasure hunt, breaking into a hidden secure and jumping off a second floor balcony with an exaggerated sense of urgency that is each overkill and unabashedly entertaining. And though they do obtain — substantially to Joon’s delight — a briefcase complete of gold bars at the finish of their adventure, the actual prize is the happiness their client discovers in being aware of that her father loved and cherished her — even if his misguided sexism previously skewed his viewpoint and brought on him to treat her like a delicate flower when she was younger.

Along the way, Yuri undergoes a related journey as she starts to piece with each other the extent of Jung-ho’s feelings for her. While he claims that he began liking her just after she confessed to him, the pieces do not add up. 1st, Jin-ki slips up and accidentally hints at the longevity of Jung-ho’s feelings, and then she finds a bookmark tucked amongst the pages of an anthology of like poems.

The bookmark triggers a memory — and a flashback — of when they had been younger. As they stroll along the streets of a quaint neighborhood, Yuri pauses to appear wistfully at a coffee shop. She confesses to Jung-ho that her dream is to make sufficient revenue as a lawyer so that she can a single day open her personal warm and cozy workplace. And she desires to operate there with him.

The Law Cafe: Episodes 11-12

In the present, Yuri realizes that her law cafe is housed in the precise identical constructing that she and Jung-ho stopped to admire all these years ago. You know, the multi-story constructing that Jung-ho bought.

Along with the recognition, comes the undeniable implications of Jung-ho’s home procurement, and Yuri right away seeks Jung-ho out for confirmation. She calls him, but on the other finish of the dial tone, Jung-ho ignores her in order to say goodbye to his mother, who makes use of that specific moment to give her motherly approval of Yuri.

Ahead of Jung-ho can return Yuri’s get in touch with, even though, he accepts a single from CEO Gil, who has been hunting the driver of the vehicle that hit Yuri. Nicely, not only has he identified the man, but he also found that the driver is a convicted murderer — and his victim was an employee in Dohan’s accounting division. If they can obtain the driver, CEO Gil says, then they can have Pyun-woong arrested for conspiracy to commit murder.

About that… Pyun-woong identified out Jung-ho was tracking his hired goon, and at that pretty moment he’s disposing of the loose finish — himself. Pyun-woong has moved previous hiring former convicts to do his dirty operate, and now he gets the job performed himself. And what’s worse, he enjoys it, and now that he’s gotten a taste for blood, he’s unlikely to quit.

From a viewer’s viewpoint, I completely like his chaotic evolution, but for the sake of our characters, I’m worried. If Yuri keeps making use of her defiant bravado as a metaphorical stick to poke the bear, they are going to be in a lot of perilous conditions going forward.

Even even though Jung-ho does not know the complete extent of the danger he and Yuri are in now, he’s understandably panicked when he tries to return Yuri’s telephone get in touch with and she does not answer. Fearing that Pyun-woong’s (now disposed of) murderous goon has come just after Yuri, he’s immensely relieved to obtain her secure and sound.

Yuri ignores his palpable concern, even though, since her patented impatience demands an answer: Just how lengthy has he had feelings for her? He tries to fudge the truth once again, worried that the longevity of his feelings will stress her into generating a selection she’s not prepared to make, but she will not accept his lie this time about.

The Law Cafe: Episodes 11-12

Ultimately, Jung-ho admits that she has normally been his “only a single,” and just after a moment’s hesitation to absorb his confession — just sufficient time for me to also finish squeeing more than his words — Yuri grabs his collar and pulls him into a kiss. And wowzah! Aside from Jung-ho’s goofy open-eye initial reaction, it is very the kiss — a single that continues to make in passion when Yuri and Jung-ho enter his apartment.

This was — legit — a single of the hawtest makeout sessions in dramaland, and though some could not like the overt sexuality of this specific scene, I personally welcomed it. Yuri could have been slow to figure out her feelings for Jung-ho, but their like has been a lengthy time coming. So, it tends to make sense that after they’re each ultimately in a location exactly where they can let go of their baggage and embrace the complete extent of their feelings, they just go for it. They’re like a pair of runners who have shed the instruction weights from about their ankles and have let themselves sprint forward with their complete potential.

But rather of crossing the finish line — if you know what I imply — they’re interrupted by Seo-yeon and Jin-ki knocking on Jung-ho’s door. Regardless of their definitely disheveled appearances (that do not go unnoticed by Seo-yeon’s keen detective eyes), Yuri hides the reality that she and Jung-ho are now an item. This becomes a bit of a sore spot for Jung-ho, who would undoubtedly like to shout out the excellent news from his rooftop apartment, but Yuri is a bit shy about going public since she has a lengthy track record of failed relationships — not that Jung-ho’s record is substantially greater.

Even even though Yuri says she desires to hold the partnership on the down low, they’re — as Joon puts it — the most “public secret relationship” ever, and the complete neighborhood speedily figures out they’re dating. Joon and Eun-kang develop sick watching Jung-ho’s lovey-dovey attentiveness, and it is so excessive that even Yuri is annoyed with her hovering helicopter boyfriend. As well poor his protectiveness gets worse when the hit-and-run driver’s physique is found. Yuri desires a lover — not a guardian — and so, their 1st fight as a couple is more than her have to have for a healthful quantity of breathing space.

Regrettably, she’s not going to get her preferred space any time quickly. You see, about the time the hit-and-run driver’s physique turns up, so does Woo-jin’s stalker, and in order to safeguard his girlfriend and his cousin, Jung-ho sets up a tent in Yuri’s living space. The 3 of them have a sleepover, and more than beer they go over the conflicting feelings Woo-jin felt when his former patient created an unhealthy and obsessive attachment to him.

The subsequent day, though Yuri meets up with DA-YOUNG (Shin So-yul), a further lawyer interested in opening a related law cafe, Jung-ho and the rest of Group Cafe set up a sting operation to catch the man who’s been following and taking photos of Woo-jin on behalf of his stalker. Right after interrogating the hired photographer, they find out that Woo-jin’s stalker has created make contact with with Yuri. That is appropriate, Da-young is the stalker, and though the boys had been busy catching her photographer, she drugged and hogtied Yuri up in her apartment.

The Law Cafe: Episodes 11-12

Jung-ho’s worst fears have come accurate, but to compound the scenario is an added sense of helplessness that he can’t save her. The house address Da-young gave her hired photographer was a fake, and rather of rescuing Yuri, Jung-ho is sent on a wild goose chase. So when Da-young’s doorbell rings — and interrupts her pretty Single White Female moment of attempting to replace Yuri as the object of Woo-jin’s affection — it is not Jung-ho on the other side of the door. It is Pyun-woong — Yuri’s (other) stalker and second-price savior.

As substantially as Pyun-woong likes the Prince Charming analogy for his “heroics,” even though, he didn’t rescue Yuri out of the goodness of his heart. No, it is all portion of his thoughts games — an try to get below her skin and make her really feel icky at the believed of getting rescued by the man who framed her father. It is fairly damn helpful, also, but in saving Yuri, he also let Da-young escape.

So when Jung-ho gets the get in touch with that Yuri is secure and sound and at the police station, Woo-jin hangs back and faces Da-young on his personal. As opposed to the previous — when his sympathy overruled his want to see her punished for her crimes — Woo-jin is stern and resolute.

His resolve is largely due to Yuri, who told him not to forgive Da-young this time about. While Yuri understood his want to be lenient with his former patient, she advised him to consider of his loved ones and how they would really feel if anything occurred to him since he let his stalker go unpunished. Right after a fairly intense fight with Da-young, who desires them to die with each other like Romeo and Juliet, she is arrested, and Woo-jin leaves the encounter mainly unscathed and with a supportive group of good friends at his side.

The expertise with the stalker also impacted Jung-ho. He’s nevertheless a giant ball of anxiousness — and obtaining the like of his life kidnapped undoubtedly did the precise opposite of alleviating his fears — but he’s capable to acknowledge that his current behavior has crossed more than into the obsessive category. Afraid that he has the prospective to spiral out of manage, like Da-young, and self-sabotage his partnership with Yuri, he opens up to her about his continual worry that he will drop her — either by way of a tragic accident or a breakup.

She responds by telling him to trust that she will safeguard herself, and there genuinely is not substantially additional he can do than that. I hope Yuri cuts him a tiny slack, even though. Yes, he was smothering, but Yuri also has a way of acquiring herself into difficulty. Not to mention, Jung-ho’s murderous uncle has his eyes on her, and even even though he supplied Jung-ho a truce (of sorts) — “I’ll leave you alone, if you leave me alone” — we all know Yuri is not going to just step aside and let Pyun-woong continue murdering individuals.

So though this week’s episodes ended with a good message about like and how to express it, we’ve got a lot additional darkness ahead. Pyun-woong’s character is evolving, and it is only a matter of time prior to Yuri says or does anything that shatters what ever spell she’s cast more than him that prevents him from wanting to trigger her outright harm.

With only 4 episodes left, I hope our story backs away from the case-of-the-day format and focuses additional on Pyun-woong as the external supply of conflict for our characters. Not only is he creepily engaging, but — for a Massive Poor — he’s not acquiring a lot of screen time. In reality, the complete shareholder blockade was a enormous rush job — but I’m not going to complain also substantially about that. The complete save-the-organization-by-gaining-the-majority-of-organization-shares story arc is a fairly boring a single.

What I did like this week, even though, was the time provided to Woo-jin and how the story addressed (and closed the door on) his tiny unrequited crush on Yuri. In an episode that was focused mainly on toxic and poorly expressed loves, his affection for Yuri was the healthiest of the bunch. Not to mention, Jung-ho’s quiet understanding and trust as he watched Yuri comfort his cousin — even if the hug was a bit also lengthy for his tastes. So, stalker aside, it was a relatively good function of a single of our loveable side characters. Now, if only our drama will give Eun-kang and the single mother a related quantity of air time.
