Scooby Doo... WHERE ARE YOU?! For some reason, I felt very let down by all of our key players this week, except Detective Byun, of course. Like Kdrama Therapy said, trust has been broken but not in the normal sense. I just realized I had expectations that no one met. You see, at times, you find yourself believing characters capable of things they can't accomplish on their own or at all and I was in that situation in episode ten. Though Jun doesn't own a white horse (and possibly wouldn’t use it, if he did), I still wanted him to lead the covert Calvary to save Detective Oh from Ballpoint. For, he seemed as concerned and surprised as I, about the “photo” development and wanted to stop any wrongdoing. So, when “Friend,” never finds him and Ballpoint has his way, I felt deflated, sad and frankly, disappointed. Not because I deem Jun some ill-begotten hero or believe in happy endings but because another "innocent" died and yet again, the enemy prevailed. It felt like nothing new. But it wasn't. This was the move, that has upped the ante, for now, our Boy is implicated in a crime that he didn’t instigate. And that just ain’t cool! Up till now, Jun was basically in control, nothing outside his reach and everyone, was being pushed, pulled and planted, exactly when and where he needed. But now, things have changed and like Drama Debussie mentioned earlier, this could be the beginnings of Mastermind mistakes and sinister sloppiness. However, one thing has been made abundantly clear---- this story is about much more than Jun’s personal revenge. The word “truth” gets thrown around a lot in this drama and I am finally willing to concede that the “truth” is the nail this picture hangs on. But it’s the truth we don’t know, that has created the Hell Jun is using his past as Yi Soo to unearth, not the reality we can account. For the focal family and crime was a red herring. We knew everything and everyone, there was just one stroke missing to complete the piece. And now, we have it. Therefore, though what we thought Jun was after remains valid, what we learn he plans to expose, makes his endgame much more detrimental. We've always known Grandpa Jo was our Baddie but the revelations of this week, shifts the focus just a tad, for though he isn’t anywhere near who he appears to be, he also isn't the person anyone “alive” knows him to be either. For me, this changes, everything, because Orpheus isn’t just this Hell Jun plans to rescue Hae Woo from----- he intends to eradicate the Devil and rip it out, from its roots. Hae Woo tells Jun, Yi Soo wants her to stop him, but to be honest, I don't agree. More so, he wants to be found. The focus of this drama hasn’t even begun to delve into the consequences and repercussions of vengeance, nor does Jun seem to care what those may be. With that in mind, their conversation on the bench, takes on a different meaning, whereby, I feel no empathy for Hae Woo, when she bemoans her diminishing confidence in recognizing Yi Soo (when and if he appears). Because that Yi Soo, no longer exists, but the man before her, Kim Jun---- desperately wants to be seen. It winds me back, to the beginning of episode nine, when she and Jun walk in for drinks to a drunk Dong Soo and a seething Joo Young, where If You Don't Know Me By Now by Harry Melvin and the Blue Notes befittingly played in the background. Though the specifics don’t apply, for me, the sentiment resounds.
