Revenge isn’t that simple like it used to be when we were kids: if someone threw a rock at us, we picked another and threw back at that person. As we grow up, more steps are needed for someone to be able to give a satisfying payback. The bitterness of the process totally disappears with the sweet revenge, but would forgiveness be sweeter?
Is it a mere coincidence to have the young Jang-Il and the grown up Soo-Mi both up for magazine spreads in May? After Siwan, it’s Im Jung Eun’s turn, this time to be featured in May’s edition if InStyle magazine. Some of the articles are comparing her to the legendary Shim Eun-Ha because of her role as Choi Soo-Mi in The Equator Man. Some people might hate Soo-Mi, but Im Jung-Eun deserves no hate, but envy. Her figure is to die for!
Here we are, getting the second time jump, thirteen years later. If two-year jump brought so many changes in the characters, how about these longer years, where they are apart from each other? Even if their appearance change, will their hearts stay intact? How about the guilt and hate: will these be washed from their hearts as they grow up?
Some of the things that I keep thinking throughout this episode: is Chairman Jin going to kill Sun-Woo? If not him, is it Jang-Il? How Sun-Woo is going to avoid the attempt to kill him? Will Ji-Won get involved in this matter? What about Soo-Mi and others? Luckily, these things don’t happen, but they are slowly getting involved in the secret, whether directly or indirectly.
Since The Equator Man was the only drama broadcasted on Wednesday despite the other two dramas’ decision to pull out of the slot due to the election, the ratings went up a bit (14.3 % if I’m not mistaken?). A good sign because it showed that people were checking out this drama and there’s possibility they will stick to it. I’m happy for it and let’s hope it will continue steadily until the end. A little rise is always welcomed.
