sharkep17pic7 You can certainly tell that we are in the home stretch of this drama by how frequently truths are being revealed and relationships are reaching their tipping points. To start with, everyone knows that Kim Jun is Han Yi Soo now. For some people like Yi Hyun and Hae Woo it is a happy revelation that a man they love is still alive while, for others, it is a major disruption in their current life. Joon Young, for example, must have been living his married life knowing that his wife stills loves Yi Soo, but his existence was that of a mere ghost until his reappearance. sharkep17pic2 sharkep17pic3 Generally, I like to latch onto a certain couple that I want to end up together in any given drama. With Shark, however, the romance has taken a backseat to the nasty lies that are hidden beneath decades of cover up. Even though Yi Soo and Hae Woo shared some intimate moments in the episodes, I find it hard to imagine them ending up together. I really hope that Yi Soo got some alternate tail between the accident and now because that would be a waste of a perfectly good hunk of man... sharkep18pic1 sharkep17pic5 sharkep17pic6 Speaking of hunks, I feel so sad for my cutie Detective Kim. After discovering, along with the audience, that his dad was tortured and then killed by Yi Soo's father, he looked like he was shot through his heart. On one hand, I understand his anger and suspicion towards Yi Soo, whom he now believes is his enemy. On the other, though, I, like Unni Chan, hope that he doesn't do anything horrible in the name of vengeance since Yi Soo is not at fault for his father's sins. sharkep17pic1 The person who's at fault is that demon we call Hae Woo's grandfather. I continue to be shocked by his evilness. Once I think that he has hit the threshold, he then threatens Yi Soo by using his own granddaughter! I guess he knows that Yi Soo loves Hae Woo, and he knows that Yi Soo will put himself on the line to protect her. Even to take that risk, though, is the sign of a truly selfish and greedy man. Before his family and humanity, for that matter, comes his power and reputation. sharkep18pic2 Another point that became interesting after these episodes, is Yi Soo's family's involvement. Because his father was associated with the torturing and stifling of the independence fighters, he is now put on level with Grandpa Jo. Obviously, he's not quite THAT evil, but now Yi Soo's desire to reveal the truth from the past will also implicate his father. I don't think Yi Soo is worried about how this would negatively affect his life and reputation, but what about Yi Hyun? What about Detective Kim? Sadly, Yi Soo was born with the cruel fate of carrying the burden of  a toxic truth that he had nothing to do with.
