There are two things that I love to see while watching dramas: a sexy revenge smirk and an out-of-no-where kiss scene to end an episode. So, thank you episodes 5 and 6 of Shark.
From the way episode 4 ended I am pretty much convinced that Jo Hae Woo knows Kim Jun is Han Yi Soo, or she at least hopes that he is. As they walked away from the lake that they went to as teenagers, they shared a strange moment in which Hae Woo lost her scarf and looked back on Yi Soo. To me that scene points toward Hae Woo’s preoccupation with the past, and her descent into the darkness in order to bring out the truth.

Now, my favorite part of episode 5 came, though, when Yi Soo joined that ever-wholesome Gaya Hotel family at their Villa for an extremely awkward meal. After the golden watch came out of the box, the reaction was priceless. Hae Woo’s dad was all like "uh oh guys," gramps was like "this idiot…," Yi Soo was like "squirm you filthy rodents," and Hae Woo was just dumbfounded.

This is also when I got to see my beloved revenge smirk as Yi Soo drank wine and enjoyed the show. Even though that little half smile seems like happiness on the outside, it probably is not. The thing about revenge is that you must live in darkness to execute it properly because you have to be consumed with hatred and the desire to punish those who wronged you. So, just a few moments after his revenge smirk, as Yi Soo drove through the bright forest of his childhood, he reached his hand out to feel the wind and sun on his skin. Can he find light again? Will he ever be happy even after he gets his revenge?
Of course episode 5 ended with the abrupt kiss between Hae Woo and Yi Soo. I would have liked the scene even more if Yi Soo would have walked over to her, said “you forgot something,” and then BAM. That would have been even more suave, and I don’t think Hae Woo would have slapped him because it would have been too much for her to resist.

Thinking of this scene leads me to another issue that’s been gnawing at me. Just a few moments after their kiss, the ever-present Oh Joon Young appeared. He is always around when anything happens between Yi Soo and Hae Woo (for example: the balcony scene in episode 1 and the aforementioned forest scene in episode 5, to name a few). Obviously both Yi Soo and I know there is something fishy about him. Whenever I see Joon Young, I am reminded of the character Ha Suk Jin played in “Hello, My Lady!” and I want to shoo him away because he was equally invasive in that drama.

So, I am waiting to find out wait Joon Young is really up to in the following episodes. Also, what ever happened to Hae Woo’s mother? She just kind of vanished at the very beginning. And, what’s the cute dimples lady’s (Secretary Jang) story? I demand answers, and I hope more bad guys squirm next week.
