It’s fun to see the bad guys trembling and shaking while Cha-don is manipulating them slowly and secretly. He’s like a puppet who has outgrown his bad masters. If those guys once made him miserable by turning his life upside down, now it’s Cha-don’s turn to let them taste the pain he experienced before. I am so entertained right now and the story still makes me jump out of my seat every now and then, be it because of satisfaction or anger. Oh, not to forget those nerve-wrecking moments seeing Se-kwang’s inner demon breaking off his good guy’s shell.
Bi-ryung is still thinking about the revelation of Jae-in being Madam Bok’s daughter and she’s pissed off that it turns out to be like that, wasting all her efforts. Se-kwang comes over to her house to tell her about Kang-seok and Bi-ryung, as expected, is shocked to hear that the boy is still alive. The baddies get together again (they should get a place as their headquarters!) and discuss about Kang-seok while yelling at each other. Bi-ryung realizes that what Attorney Hwang said to her about Kang-seok being alive was true but dissed it off before as groundless rumors.
They get to know about the money being kept in a shipping container at a place and decides to observe if Kang-seok is going to retrieve the money soon. Cha-don foresees their plan beforehand and discusses about taking out the money from the place without anyone noticing it. Se-kwang, Reporter Go, and Bi-ryung keep watching should anyone come to retrieve the container number K40, as per the information they got before. A lorry comes to take the K39 container and they’re left devastated since no one has come for K40. They are already impatient after waiting for several days and open the container to see the content, but it’s empty except for a piece of paper with words on it.
And I will bring a sword on you,
that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant:
and when you are gathered together within your cities,
I will send the pestilence among you;
and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
If I whet my glittering sword,
and mine hand take hold on judgment;
I will render vengeance to mine enemies,
and will reward them that hate me.
Be ye afraid of the sword:
for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword,
that ye may know there is a judgment.
The Bible verses were from Cha-don, who already changed the container number and successfully took away the real container with the help of Officer Yang in front of their eyes. Se-kwang screams at the sky, telling Kang-seok that he will never be able to defeat him. Cha-don receives the call from Officer Yang, informing him about the successful mission. He goes to check the content while Assistant Hong and Manager Yang (he’s promoted!) rejoice over his fortune in front of them.
And those baddies are sitting together, fidgeting and worrying after reading the warning from Kang-seok. Se-kwang admits that it was his fault to let Kang-seok escape alive back then. He hopes to see the young man getting his revenge on them so that he can redeem his mistake. They soon regain their confidence, thinking that nothing can shake up their strong ship full of powerful people on board.
Manager Yang and Assistant Hong bring Cha-don to a place that will be their new office from now on. He seems to be satisfied with it but when asked about their next step, Cha-don brings out the money as a final present for both of them. He intends to send them away since it’s a dangerous path from now on, but both of them refuse to do so. Manager Yang wants Cha-don to count on them since he is alone in the world right now. Awww, there goes my tears. They proceed to discuss about the plan and Cha-don is confident that one of those four baddies left was Attorney Hwang’s murderer. He wants to join them and reaches for Bi-ryung’s picture, his first target among them.
Madam Bok sets up a voice recorder and starts talking out loud about Bi-ryung’s betrayal. She realizes that her memory becomes easily lost these days but still keeping it a secret from everyone. She manages to hide the recorder just in time when Jae-in enters the room and proceeds to chide her daughter’s involvement with Bi-ryung. Madam Bok wants her to be more alert and work harder to control the bank. A certain President Go, someone with 6% share in the bank comes over and Jae-in agrees to help in persuading him so that she can help Cha-don later. The president seems satisfied with Jae-in’s ability to take over the bank and agrees to transfer the shares on her name instead of helping Bi-ryung.
Cha-don begins his plan by following Bi-ryung and overhears her talking about her failure to arrange a meeting with the same President Go. He clearly remembers how Bi-ryung used to treat his mother. He then talks to Manager Yang as if he’s President Go and intentionally speaks louder to make her notice him. Bi-ryung approaches him first because of the business but he doesn’t show any interest in her. She gets to know that Cha-don is the president’s attorney and asks for his help about the shares. He refuses to work with her at first, but soon gives in with the condition that he will be the bank’s attorney if the shares can be transferred to her.
Se-kwang and Prosecutor Kwon are hanging out together drinking at the usual bar. They talk about Kang-seok, who is known as a British citizen Edward Lee and remains a mysterious figure without any information about him. Se-kwang thinks it’s weird for the kid to suddenly appear and intentionally blocking their ways left and right. Prosecutor Kwon feels that Kang-seok is someone very close to them for that kid to perfectly ruin their plans. He wants Se-kwang to think carefully about it and Se-kwang suddenly remembers Madam Park calling Cha-don Kang-seok when they first met. Se-kwang finally finds Kang-seok!
As expected, Se-kwang’s first destination to confirm Cha-don’s real identity is the orphanage. He takes a look at the record and thank God, the picture of the young Cha-don has been replaced. The director also tells Se-kwang that Cha-don was brought there by his late grandma. Se-kwang feels dejected that his theory is proved to be wrong, but Prosecutor Kwon is assured that the kid is going to show himself in front of them soon. The orphanage director calls Cha-don after they left and Cha-don has actually planned it beforehand. Phew!
Bi-ryung brags to Reporter Go about Cha-don’s willingness to help her but Reporter Go doesn’t think Cha-don will be able to persuade President Go. She gets a call from Cha-don, telling her that President Go is going to play golf and she can join too. Madam Bok also receives the info about the meeting and Jae-in personally goes to the golf club as she doesn’t want to lose to Bi-ryung. Cha-don thinks it’s wise for President Go to put his money on someone with the ability like Bi-ryung instead of suffering losses from the inexperienced Jae-in.
Jae-in arrives at the club just on time to see Cha-don together with Bi-ryung and President Go. She’s of course, shocked, and so is Cha-don. They have a private talk and Jae-in guesses it right that Cha-don is selling President Go to Bi-ryung. She’s angry that he’s being ungrateful for what her mother had done for him, but he thinks Jae-in is just incompetent as long as she has Madam Bok as her shield. Cue a scene of Jae-in throwing a glass of water on Cha-don’s face, and he leaves.
Madam Bok gets to know about Cha-don and she vows to destroy Cha-don with all her might. Jae-in, on the other hand, is drinking her heart out to forget her sadness. Cha-don goes for a simple celebration with Bi-ryung and leads her to talk about her love life. She tells him about her loneliness, receiving nothing but cold treatment from Se-kwang. She wants to drink more but Cha-don decides to leave since he doesn’t like taking care of drunk people. Bi-ryung feels touched with Cha-don’s way of treating her.
Mr Kim goes home without Jae-in as she suddenly disappeared. He tells Madam Bok about it and reports about Cha-don, who seems to be changing drastically from his old self. He reminds Madam Bok about the meeting she had with Cha-don and she totally forgot about it. Luckily, she recorded the conversation and Cha-don actually came to her first to tell her about his plan to crush Bi-ryung before giving back all the shares to Jae-in. He was also the one who asked Madam Bok’s help to be introduced to President Go. Madam Bok is worried that her memory loss is getting worse day by day.
Cha-don doesn’t go back to his new office; instead he stays by himself over at his old, shabby office. He gets a visitor knocking furiously on the door and it’s Jae-in, who found her way there drunk. She lashes out her anger on him but her tone changes from furious into utter disappointment. She admits that she did everything to help him, just because she loves him. Cha-don hears her confession and goes out just in time to catch her from passing out onto the floor. He tells her not to love him since he can’t return her feelings. He brings the unconscious Jae-in home and meets Madam Bok on his way out. Madam Bok wants to know the reason why he’s planning all this thing but he only promises to tell her about it later. Mr Kim is worried that they’re not telling Jae-in about it, but Madam Bok expects her daughter to endure the pain and change for the better.
Chief Jo passes the investigation record of Attorney Hwang’s murder case to Manager Yang per Madam Bok’s request. Cha-don now gets the access to what Ji-hoo knows about the case and he also learns about the car that belongs to Prosecutor Kwon. He wants them to find the car before Ji-hoo does.
The shareholder’s meeting is attended by many people including Madam Bok and Jae-in. Bi-ryung welcomes everyone with smile and as expected, she’s elected as the bank’s Chairman with her status as the major shareholder. Madam Bok and Jae-in leave after hearing the result and run into Cha-don outside. Madam Bok acts like she’s pissed off with Cha-don and Mr Kim breaks into a tiny smile before walking away. Cha-don tries to make a conversation with Jae-in but she’s set to make him suffer for his betrayal.
Ji-hoo is carrying out her investigation and she personally makes a visit to Prosecutor Kwon’s house to confirm his family’s alibi. Prosecutor Kwon thinks she’s acting rude in front of him and warns her to investigate the case thoroughly to find the real murderer. Meanwhile, Manager Yang had located the car used by the murderer and Cha-don passes the latest piece of evidence to Ji-hoo anonymously. He sends the video recording of Ji-hoo finding Attorney Hwang’s muffler inside the car’s trunk to Prosecutor Kwon. Cha-don teases him that someone is trying to frame him but doesn’t tell him anything.
Cha-don checks the black box video recorded inside the car and surprise surprise, the last person driving the car was Eun Bi-ryung, recorded with her conversation with Attorney Hwang. The revelation is something unforeseen by him and he takes a few seconds to let the reality sinks in. He slowly breaks into a smile…
[END of EPISODE 14]
“I NEED EPISODE 15!!!!”
I’m pretty sure that’s everyone’s reaction after the cliffhanger. How can the fate be so generous to Cha-don? Not that I’m complaining, because I had the same expression as him. He’s going to wrap Bi-ryung around his fingers in no time! This is exciting!
As expected, Cha-don is cooperating with Madam Bok and together, they make a perfect, intelligent team. It’s a disappointment when her health is deteriorating rapidly, especially her memory. I assume it’s either dementia or Alzheimer, but we’ll get to know about it soon. Imagine how heartbroken Jae-in will be once she learns about her mother’s condition. With her deep hatred towards Cha-don, will she eventually lean towards Se-kwang’s side?? Please no! Mr Kim Pal-do, please guide her and tell her the truth!
Se-kwang is not easily shaken by mere rumors and empty threats, but to see him acting out of himself is just a sign that he’s afraid of Kang-seok. He shows that he’s confident but deep inside, he’s just as insecure as others and probably more worried as he’s the biggest sinner among the baddies. Ji Se-kwang…it’s your turn to be the puppet for the show. Cha-don a.k.a. Kang-seok is more than ready to take over your place as the master.
