EVERYONE STOP! Stop whatever you are doing and start watching Shark
. This drama is getting really good, and I don't think you should be missing out. I love it's classic mystery thriller vibe combined with the contemporary, yet somehow still vintage, aesthetic. Sometimes I find myself chuckling at the over-the-top caricatures, but I think the writers intended for some of the scenarios to be amusing. For example, at the beginning of episode 9 Kim Jun/ Yi Soo says, "Any person that you know doesn't exist in reality, but only in your mind." Sure, he's philosophically correct, but basically he is just trying to answer Hae Woo's question of "who are you?" without really answering it at all. He's constantly playing word games, and, fortunately, Hae Woo is a worthy opponent.

Haters gonna hate[/caption]
I feel like so much happened in episodes 9 and 10, and yet, none of my questions were answered. I only have more questions now. So, who really killed Chung Man Chul? It probably wasn't Hae Woo's father, but at this point I really don't know what to think. At times I suspect Junichiro Yoshimura is the one responsible for that murder and the subsequent framing of Jo Ui Son (Hae Woo's dad) because I don't think he trusts Yi Soo to pull of the revenge, hence Secretary Jang placed as a spy. Ugh it's like a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, but you only have half the pieces to work with. This is why I love Shark
, though, I don't have everything figured out already. We as the audience are privy to a limited amount of information and only have a vague idea of what Yi Soo is thinking.

Can't this be like a "Spy Who Shagged Me" type of thing?[/caption]
Another thing I enjoy about this show is that it is like a game of Clue. You really can't trust anyone because everyone is a suspect. Even the seemingly sweet side characters can have hidden agendas or revenge of their own. Like Secretary Jang who watches Yi Soo like a hawk on the one hand, but on the other she appears to be genuinely concerned about him. What is her motive? It must be more than just the job, right? After these episodes, I don't even trust Hae Woo anymore. Sure, Ui Son is her father and she wants to protect him, but concealing evidence is part of the reason this debacle happened 12 years ago. No girl, your dad is a dastardly villain whether he killed Man Chul or not, so please don't throw away your ethics for him. Honestly, the only person I fully trust in this drama is Yi Soo's sister, Yi Hyun. She seems too ditzy and sweet to be of any harm... but you never know. Dang, now I trust no one in this drama.
After the shiitake hit the fan in the closing scenes of episode 10, I got the feeling that the downfall is about to begin. Hae Woo is on the brink of finding Yi Soo, and now he revealed himself as an opponent to the Gaya hotel by stealing their acquisition. I look forward to more mind games, twists, and watching evil guys shed tears of blood.
Now please enjoy some random screen caps of Kim Nam Gil as Yi Soo

There are two things that really disturbed me about this scene. First, the creepy picture of the guy's face, and second is the fact that Yi Soo just downed a mouthful of pills.[/caption]
