Vampire Detective: Episode 12 (Final)

Keeping loved ones in the dark will prove to be difficult in this final chapter because everyone will be on the move to procure and secure what’s theirs. As Tae-woo launches a search for a missing vampire, San will need to make a difficult decision between friendship and love which will all lead up to one fight in the darkness. And while all that may sound exciting, you’ll likely feel more like Gyeo-wool chasing after a story with hardly any leads.

 

 
FINAL EPISODE: “Night Again…”

Cold open: On a dark night, San rips up and crumples the school records on Tae-woo and Yoo-jin. He tosses the pieces into the river, which takes them away. Wouldn’t… a shredder be more efficient here?

He stuffs the picture of the three of them in his pocket though, as Yoo-jin walks towards him. She wonders if anyone will remember them after they die, since they’ll disappear without a trace. San tells her: “I’m going to remember you,” then embraces her.

As San boards up the windows for Yoo-jin, Tae-woo couldn’t care less as to what his lackey thinks they should do now. He heads down to meet Gu-hyung, who is bloodied, battered, and hanging from the ceiling.

Since there’s no time to waste, he asks where San is, and tenses at Gu-hyung’s reference that he and San are “friends.” Still, Gu-hyung picks up on Tae-woo’s inferiority complex when it comes to San, and wonders if he’s still obsessed with Yoo-jin.

Gu-hyung earns a hard punch to the jaw for those words, and Tae-woo tells him that he’ll soon see San’s downfall.

San speaks with Sun-young once the sun is up. Though she can hardly believe that Yoo-jin is still alive, she understands that San can’t provide a deeper explanation. She promises to create new identification for Yoo-jin, but sighs once she hangs up.

Speaking of whom, Yoo-jin can only gaze at the sunlight that peeks in until San joins her. She’s glad to hear everyone is doing fine, then hints how San can walk in sunlight. San says he doesn’t quite understand either (and neither do we).

It reminds Yoo-jin of how much she misses from her former human experience: the feeling of the warm sunlight on her skin, eating delicious food, and meeting up with her friends.

Tae-woo can’t believe his luck when he sees a concerned text from Sun-young on Gu-hyung’s phone that lists San’s exact location. Now we find out that Tae-woo was speaking with his lackey when he ordered that San and Yoo-jin be brought back.

Yoo-jin grows weaker as the day passes, so San sets down his blood-filled inhaler by her side. She grabs onto him when he’s about to step out, and he promises her that he’ll be back soon.

She thinks back to the moment when Tae-woo turned her into a vamp, then takes the inhaler. Turns out that San is waiting just around the corner, hoping to give her some privacy.

It isn’t long before a group of suits show up and start breaking down the windows. San tries fighting them off as Yoo-jin screams inside, huddled in her blanket. He scoops her up and asks her to trust him before running into the daylight.

Sun-young arrives long after the dust has settled, while Gyeo-wool isn’t able to reach either Gu-hyung or San. Just then, Yo-na bursts in the house with her men, demanding to know where the Helper list is.

Pouring out a healthy portion of wine onto the rug to illustrate that they have no time to lose, Yo-na says everyone will die if they don’t succeed. Gyeo-wool is more interested in where her brother is, and flies into a rage when Yo-na replies there’s no time for that right now.

Gyeo-wool is confused when Yo-na tells her that finding San is a more urgent matter. She looks to the computer, and Yo-na follows her line of sight.

Elsewhere, San reassures Yoo-jin that it feels nice to have her around. But Yoo-jin knows it won’t ever be easy even if they manage to leave the country. He repeats the same words she spoke to him when they were at school—never give up.

After a long silence, he tells her to close her eyes. She does, and he paints her a word picture of a beautiful day out. He fastens the sun pendant around her neck and tells her not to lose it again. Aw.

Tae-woo is pleased to hear that his men has found Yoo-jin and has Gu-hyung untied from his holding cell. Young-kwang is still there, tied to a chair and barely conscious.

Yo-na is less than thrilled to find out that Gyeo-wool was tracking the fake USB. When she demands that Gyeo-wool hand over the real one, Gyeo-wool asks that she come with them, adding that she doesn’t want to lose more people who are dear to her heart.

San and Yoo-jin take a stroll by the seashore when Tae-woo’s men drive up. They flash Gu-hyung’s face at him as bait, and Tae-woo’s lackey advises them to follow unless they wish to see Gu-hyung dead.

He calls the van that has Gu-hyung hostage, ordering that they can kill when either he tells them to or if this calls hangs up. Then he looks to San and instructs him to follow them.

Yo-na drops Gyeo-wool off at the police station, saying that they need all the help they can get. They’re in the same boat, Yo-na explains—neither of them want to lose people who are dear to them.

With that, Gyeo-wool hands over the USB with the warning that if anything goes wrong, she’ll kill Yo-na herself.

Back at the seaside standoff, Yoo-jin reminds San that Gu-hyung is important to him. She’ll leave with Tae-woo’s men now and they can meet “there” later. With that, Yoo-jin gives herself up and San watches as the car drives away.

Yoo-jin is tied down with chains when Tae-woo takes off her blindfold. He tells her: “I’ll show you the consequences of breaking your promise.”

Yo-na marches up to Tae-woo’s men while Gyeo-wool pulls Detective Park away from his food. Detective Park tries to crack a joke, saying that he’s got a good feeling about tonight, but Gyeo-wool is too worried about San and Gu-hyung.

Tae-woo walks up to San tied up in chains around a pillar. He’s amused when San can’t pinpoint where Gu-hyung and Yoo-jin are, and he’s dead set on proving San wrong today. Tears fill San’s eyes as he pleads: “Tae-woo, I was in the wrong. Let’s not do this.”

That’s a response Tae-woo didn’t expect, and he punches San, asking what he did wrong. He lights up an area where two seated figures were hidden in the shadows. He’ll give San a gun with one bullet, and San will shoot one of two chairs which is either Young-kwang or Gu-hyung.

But there’s more: Tae-woo reveals Yoo-jin tied down at the other end, then commands his lackey to turn on the UV lights. San starts gasping as the lamps turn off again, and Tae-woo describes how the tables have turned: “Now I’m the one giving out orders and you’re the one who’ll listen!”

This is a win-win situation for Tae-woo: If San shoots Gu-hyung, he’ll revel in the guilt San will feel; if he shoot Young-kwang, Tae-woo will obtain Young-kwang’s entire gangster organization.

Tae-woo steps back to watch the spectacle, and San raises the gun at him. Tae-woo doesn’t even flinch, walking back towards San and reminding him that bullets are useless against them because they are both vampires.

San has ten seconds to make a decision or else Yoo-jin will die, Tae-woo reminds him. He starts the countdown, and the happy memories spent with Gu-hyung flash through San’s mind. 5… 4… 3… 2…

… and at 1, San shoots the figure to his far right. Even Tae-woo is surprised that he would shoot, and his lackey pulls back the sheet to reveal Yo-na. She admits the bullet wound hurts a little before rising and shooting Tae-woo over and over again.

As Tae-woo drops to his knees, Yo-na says he should’ve done a better job at taking care of his right-hand man. In flashback, we learn that Yo-na had taken down all of Tae-woo’s men and showed the lackey the real USB, telling him that he better fall in line with the right boss.

So when the lackey handed San the gun, he advised him to make the “right” decision as the hunting dog. That reminded San of how Yo-na always referred to him as such, and we know the rest from there.

She unties Gu-hyung from the other chair, who runs to free San. As for Tae-woo’s former lackey, he lines up a few more shots… but then Tae-woo uses one of the other men as a human shield.

The lackey stares at the gun in dumb amazement as Tae-woo rips himself free and chomps down on his neck. He grabs San and chucks him into the wall, then San charges at him.

Eventually Tae-woo grabs him in a chokehold as San’s head lobs forward. He figures San hasn’t consumed his fill of blood in a while, but that’s when San’s eyes glow yellow and he wrestles out of Tae-woo’s grasp.

Each of them get a few punches in and flip each other in the air and onto the ground. Yo-na heads down to the room where Young-kwang is held and checks to see if he’s still breathing.

Gu-hyung is still trying to break through Yoo-jin’s chains while Tae-woo chokes San with a chain. He whips San back, flips him over and over again, and holds on tight as if the chain were a leash. He tugs, and then the chain breaks.

Yo-na helps Young-kwang outside and sees the sun peeking above the buildings. Young-kwang calls her by her former name, Eun-hae. He turns into his younger self before her eyes, and through shallowed breaths, he tells her that he’s killed so many people over the years.

He admits that he was so scared and hardly slept and ate back then. Living a life where he had to act unaffected to his reality frightened him, along with the idea of continuing to live his life this way. Lastly, he hoped he would be able to die looking at her face.

Yo-na extends her hand to softly touch his cheek, but she refuses to let things end this way. She promises to help him and is about to cut into her palm again when Young-kwang stops her.

“Everything has an end,” Young-kwang tells her. “Let’s go to those people and beg for forgiveness.”

But Yo-na shakes her head no: “I don’t want to.” As the sunlight approaches, Young-kwang embraces her and says, “I’ll protect you. Don’t be scared.”

Inside, Yoo-jin stops Gu-hyung from pulling at her chains. She tells him to go get help while she’ll try to stop San and Tae-woo.

Not too far away, San flips over Tae-woo and breaks an arm with his knee. Tae-woo recovers in no time and soon repays the favor. Eventually Tae-woo pins San to the ground, and Yoo-jin calls out, “Stop.”

Detective Park and Gyeo-wool finally make it to the building as Gu-hyung rushes out into the hallway. Back inside, Yoo-jin has the remote to the UV light in her hand and tells San: “I’m sorry. Take care.”

She presses the button and the bright lights consume her. A lone tear runs down her cheek as San screams. The screen fades to white, then Yoo-jin imagines being able to stand on a beach with San in the daytime.

When the camera cuts back to San again, he sits alone with the sun pendant.

Young-kwang lays out in the sun, as someone picks up the USB drive. We cut back to when he and Gu-hyung were tied up in the same room as Gu-hyung kept telling him to stay awake. Young-kwang had kept talking, describing a group who was out for him.

Gu-hyung is too late when he returns to the room with Detective Park and Gyeo-wool in tow. The room is empty.

One year later. Gu-hyung hands out flyers with San’s face on it to anyone who will take a copy. Doctor Hwang and Se-ra help out too, and Detective Park shows up to tell the trio that someone has filed a complaint against them again.

Apparently Gu-hyung has hung around the same area because a witness claimed to have spotted San. He asks if Detective Park has tracked down Yo-na, only to be told that no one of that name (nor Young-kwang for that matter) exists.

He plans on opening up the private investigative agency when San shows up again. He whacks Detective Park on the head for suggesting that they should work together, then gets a call from Gyeo-wool.

She’s heard that Gu-hyung has been kicked out of that grand house, and he asks where she’s been. She reminds him that she’ll return once she finds San, which prompts him to ask if she’s tracked him down.

With that she walks right up to them and makes a request: “Do you want to go and bring San back together?”

She opens up her arms for a hug… and Gu-hyung kicks her in the shins. Ha. And so the team heads out to find San, together.

 
COMMENTS

Like so many of its crime procedural predecessors at OCN, Vampire Detective leaves us with an open ending that sets up for another potential season. But unlike the other shows, I’m left uninterested in where our crew goes next because if San has stayed under the radar for a year, I can only assume that he’s sulking somewhere over Yoo-jin (again), possibly suffering (or not because who really knows) from his vampiric condition.

Pair that perspective with ratings falling from week to week, and the show was dragging its fangs to the finish line. Watching that trajectory was almost tragic too, since Vampire Detective offered such a promising premiere. But between all the repetitive cliffhangers followed by often confusing cold opens, to important conversations that were assumed between the characters but were unshown to the viewers, to abandoned plot points revived at the eleventh hour, and worse yet—a practically invisible vampire angle—it should come as no surprise that disinterest and frustration would grow with each passing episode.

A part of me does think that the one-episode-a-week format worked to the show’s disadvantage because weeks or months would pass before we had to care about a character or an item no one really remembered. Take for instance, Sun-young, whose re-appearance in the finale was more a hindrance than anything else. She easily could’ve tried to call Gu-hyung rather than text San’s exact location (especially if San couldn’t divulge more details), but of course that information makes it awfully convenient for Tae-woo to send his men down to exactly where San was. Not only that, it was only this episode where Tae-woo’s lackey’s disgruntlement towards his boss came into play, which took the oomph out of his betrayal. (I will, of course, find endless amusement in the lackey’s amazement at how a bullet cannot stop a goddamn vampire.)

These are only a few of the many things the show picked up and had our characters care about at will. I was almost surprised to find that Gyeo-wool was still in the dark about her brother, whose mysterious disappearance was the entire reason why she joined the team. One year later, her focus is on finding a different missing person without finding any emotional closure for her own family.

This all goes to say that I wish the show used expository when it actually counted, applied to our main characters and the overarching narrative. Instead, the show spent time describing the minute in a complicated way (see: the pyramid scheme) and skimming over the interactions of our trio, who in spite of everything, I still very much adore. I have Oh Jung-se to thank for my deep admiration of Gu-hyung and his unwavering loyalty, and Lee Joon for his earnestness in his acting when the writing cared so little about San.

Suffice it to say that San’s lingering affection and unwavering understanding for Yoo-jin was a plot point I cared little about, if at all. Her character was no more than a damsel in distress to drive San from place to place, so seeing her demise meant a graceful exit to an otherwise uninteresting character. Yet if there’s one thing I do hope for out of all of this, is that Gu-hyung does find San because he ain’t gonna find anyone better than him.

Thank you for recapping this drama, just like you said this show started with so much promise and along the way it lost his way, i can only imagen what it could had been, however I love the main cast, and can't wait to see their next projects.

I wouldnt want to rant but during the last minute, I was laughing so much.(in bitterness) I had a lot of expectations from this drama since it is my first vampire series ever. I gotta admit that this eps has more thriller and excitement than all the other 11 eps combined. But this drama is a nice drama to watch if you just want to waste time and have nothing better to do. However, in terms of acting, the actors and the actresses did an amazing job. It's a waste though because the plot was heading nowhere. Yona's ending part was quite confusing and who is evil blood? (Is it from the series before this?) Anyway, if they were to make a Vampire Detective 2, I will think twice before watching it. Thank you Dramabeans for recapping this whole drama. I homestly had so much fun reading the recaps right after I finished every series.

I agree with you that this series was one big mess and it is a shame this is the first 'vampire' series ever! Personally, if I were you, I would go on and watch Vampire Prosecutor (the predecessor of this one) which was totally awesome!

Though it too had an open ending and some plotholes, I think that series had (especially in season 1) quite a lot going for it. So, yeah, this is a random comment, but seriously, if you want to forget this watch Vampire Prosecutor which was way, way better in my opinion!!

If you are interested check the dramabeans recaps for it or watch the first episode..

U left me very disappointed ( Vampire Detective ) :( * even though I haven't seen ep 11 & 12 yet*
So many things are left unanswered .. I disliked the way the show just transformed San into a vamp or whatever was that at the end of ep 1 and went on to have insignificant case every episode as if nothing happened . The element of excitement was neglected . You can't just throw some interesting stories in ep 1 then drag with some irrelevant cases untill idk ep 9 or sth , oooh let me get back to what was I saying .. ( I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the cases but they're not the whole thing )
some items that were not completely covered
• Gyeo wool's brother's story and even her knowing about it .
• San's Whooooole story , I mean his vampiric abilities , his state ( not eating and all )
• idk did they show the reason yoo-jin is still alive ? - surviving a car bomb ?
Maybe i'm wrong cause i haven't watched ep 11 or 12 yet ...However , It's such a waste that such a great start were wrapped up that badly :( Kudos to the actors and actresses ? lee joon has reaally improved ?

San did get his shot of blood from the inhaler he brings it anywhere he goes, at episode 12 he gave it to Yoojin because Yoojin has been starving

Yoojin and Taewoo survive the car bomb because they were already a vampire, they can run fast and not be seen by anyone, Taewoo showed this ability at ep 11

This show is from the creator of Vampire prosecutor and Lee Joon is well known with his acting. That make me expect that the show is great like the previous series. But the story in my point of view the story lack in details and too many loop hole. The question of why San is different with others and the fact that Gyun-Weol's brother is the reason why San turns into vampire thru unknown substance is left unanswered.
To be honest the story didn't get the nice flow like the vampire prosecutor has despite the fact that it has the same team behind the Prosecutor and Lee Joon is great as well as the other cast.
Sorry for my reaction but all the words I put is merely stated based on my point of view.

So wow, yeah, that happened... It was such a terrible ending and if it tells you anything, but the last 15 mins. I was hoping everyone would go down in flames, and I mean everyone.

Not that I want to waste anymore time on this show, some of this episode didn't make any sense to me. San calls Young Sun to get passport and ID for YooJin - she is surprised to learn she's alive and then calls TaeWoo, who she knew was alive all this time?? Was she part of this underground vampire ring the whole time? Why did she betray San and call TaeWoo otherwise?

The fight scene was ridiculous and I love a good fight - why not show us Yoona or YooJin taking down the bad guys, none of the females did anything in this show but drink wine/blood... So frustrating on so many levels. I'm all vamped out and really hope there isn't another vampire show coming out any time soon.

Watching this show made me really really sad. Thank you for continuing to recap this show. The combination of reading the recap and half paying attention to the show while it played is what got me through the chore. The only reason I didnt cold drop it is because I have an unwavering love for Lee Joon (which was sorely tested ... So sorely tested by Vampire Detective).

Was completely uninterested in Yoo-jin. She is a vampire, who used to be a cop (undercover at that!) for crying out loud, couldn't she have been written a little less lame? She didn't have to be as cool and spunky as the human Gyeo-wool, but could she have been a little less lame?

Anyway, silver lining, now that this is over, I can watch Seo In-guk next week!

Thanks for the recaps. I enjoyed watching this show. I woundn't mind a Vampire Prosecutor 3 at all but it didn't bother me as much the lack of vampire element. Actually the last few episodes when it was more of it I found kind of boring because the show focused on his lost love story which I was not invested in. I liked the three main characters together and I hope I will see them in a next season....even that is not probable seeing not many people enjoyed it. The girl in the team was cool and I'm hoping she will get some other roles like that in future shows...I only saw her in Trot Lovers and her character there was not really likeable. Overall, nice easy watch show for me.

This show...this show committed the cardinal sin of squandering a great cast (how dare you waste Kim Yoon-Hye) and dragging both plot and characterization to the point that the audience no longer cared about either. What a mess.

How I would have done it
- establish background mystery (the cop story), main characters, and central mystery (vampire underground)
- San becomes a vampire, spend a few episodes on cases to 1) develop characterization, 2) establish San's abilities and his understanding of his abilities, 3) sprinkle hints of the past and current mysteries
- at some point San reveals his powers to Gu-hyung
- midway point: Yo-na is revealed, central mystery comes front and center and background mystery is implied to be connected
- gang continues to work on cases (which DEVELOP CHARACTER AND RELATIONSHIPS) while San and Gu-hyung work on connecting the two mysteries
- background objects and characters are brought up again so we're not confused when they show up later
- Yo-na's backstory is less damsel-y and more effed up with manipulation galore
- around episode 7 San figures out Tae Woo and Yoo Jin must be alive, confirmed by the audience
- San gets proactive in seeking out vampires and the underground, looks for proof that they're alive
- sprinkle the backstory throughout the series in flashbacks (cases reminding of Yoo Jin and Tae Woo's personalities, paint TW in a sad and kinder light)
- eventually reveal the real background and ugly truth
- deal with Yo-na to find Yoo Jin, fight with TW, blah blah blah
- YJ escapes knowing TW will chase her, keeping San a little safer. San disappears going after her.
- the gang shows up at a vampire club armed and ready, asking "Have you seen Yoon San?" END CREDIT.
- also, Yoo Jin would have more personality than weepy damsel (how dare they. It's Kim Yoon-hye!)

lol sorry guys, I just had to rant out my problems with this show. I expected to enjoy it at least a little so I was pretty heartbroken, sigh. At least we all suffered together.

This show was deeply flawed...yet interestingly enjoyable? That questionmark at the end really somes up this show. It just didn't know what direction it wanted to go. As a case of the week detective show, loved it. As a vampiric fantasy, utterly failed - utterly. Really, the main question I ask is what was the point of having San a "vampire"? Vampire is in quotes because we never were told exactly what the hell he actually was. He could been a regular Joe and the story would have been exactly the same. There were 12 episodes show, 12! in order to give us a snippet of information on his new found abilities. Wasted. Wasted talent, wasted story...

Thanks for recap!
I am upset with this show. The thing bothers me the most is that they didn't explain about San, the hero of the show to the end.

oh well, Lee Jun seemed to be fully committed to the show (I read he asked to be chained for real. That neck chain thing looked painful) and his acting made me endure to watch the show.

Already excited for the next show with Seo In-kook.

I was sooo disappointed in the ending. I mean, they seriously left so many things unanswered and went after plotlines that were totally uninteresting. I don't care about Yona's love story. We never got to know why Yoon San is not eating anything and how he can survive MONTHS without drinking blood or eating human food. If you build a fantasy world you have to care about the little details because they make the story believable of fake. I agree that the girl (I don't even remember her friggin name) was totally a useless character, employed as a deux ex machina to further the plot. She was trained to be a policewoman and yet she was helpless like a goddarn princess making sad faces all the time. WTF. Even Gyeowool kicks more ass. We never got to know WHY Gu-hyeon is so attached to San. He is like seriously a father figure crying over him like he's his own son. OK they got to work on a mission and lost two members. That doesn't explain the deep affection he feels for San. Gyeowool never got to know what happened to her brother. Does she even realise that San is a vampire? Gu-hyeon knows, we got glimpes of understanding from him, but Gyeowool seems totally oblivious. Why was the doctor never surprised to find San's blood being different or his wounds magically healing? I mean if I were a doctor, and my patient's stab wound would disappear within an hour, I'd be freaked out and ask some questions. This show promised such a good storyline and they completely disregarded it and ruined it. It's such a waste, because Lee Joon is really doing a good job here as an actor. But you can't build castles out of poop, as we say in my country.

Oh Vampire Detective.... Disappointment to the very end. Not that I expected much but I really thought we would at least got a full vampire showdown and we got a fight alright. Just with half of the vampire.

Since San does not need to drink blood often and can go out in the sun, am I wrong for thinking he is suppose to the superior vampire? So why in the heck was Tae Woo particularly killing him? I get the hero gets knocked down a few times until he finds his inner strength to win but geez louise he was getting pummeled!!

Honestly, I can go on and on about what they did wrong. They just need to stop playing and just bring back Vampire Prosecutor.

They will probably make a season 2 with both vampire prosecutor universe and vampire detective universe in it, but really hope they changed the writer, not enough talent compared to the actors in this show. This show is sold to Japan, I dont want for a second season but I'm afraid they will make it because they have Lee Joon and they can make more money out of him.

Yeh, it was kinda rough and choppy. But, I enjoyed the cast of the Detective Agency and the Tattoo Parlour, their chemistry, to me, made the show worth watching. Oops, and their Cop friend was entertaining at times. The stories were jerky and incomplete, which was a shame...but, the actors seemed to give their all to the material they were given.

I am seriously disappointed.. Though I only read the recaps and could not be bothered to watch the actual series, this is it?

Mainly, I read the recaps for any, and I mean ANY shred of information on Taeyeon.. Especially with the overlap in one episode, San promising Doc Blood to find him, it looked so promising! I had placed a lot of faith in this series but alas.. Nothing, not one shred of information in the end!!! T_T

I actually started to like the main cast, thinking they were fun and refreshing. However, I can't stop comparing it to Vampire Prosecutor over and over again..

One can only hope there will be a third Vampire Prosecutor season after this...

I am sad to admit that this series was a waste of a wonderful cast. If it weren't for Lee Joon and co. bringing life to these characters, I would probably not have stuck around until the end.

Well we went full circle. Just like at the beginning of the story, Yoo Jin is dead. Taewoo is dead. San still oblivious to his true nature. Gyeowool still looking for answers about her brother. What exactly happened in 12 episodes?

Of course I did enjoy some of the "case of the week" but the over arching plot was seriously...was it even there? I am so confuse.

My quibble with this drama is goes far beyond of lack of "Son, do you know if you're a vampire or not?"

At the end of everything, I'm just left with one question. What about Gyeo-wool? What about her story? :(

What's the point in having good characters if you're not going use them? :(

I liked Yo-Na. She had a great backstory. Great acting. I'm definitely going to look for more shows of Lee Chung-ah.

That's the only +ve I'm going to take away from this drama.

Really, Evil Blood? Now?! TPTB, after how many years since Vampire Prosecutor?

Another drama bites the dust

great acting, under utilized cast, cold plot :(

This show was utterly crap. The only good thing about is the theme song, which is also from Vampire Prosecutor.

Characters are wasted, and the story doesn't even make much sense. San's obsession over Yoo-jin was also annoying, and I had little to no sympathy for Yoo-jin. The fact is she shot the guy with the intention to kill him. And she agreed to be turned by the other pathetic friend because she was afraid for her life.

This kind of character doesn't work for the story they're trying to tell. Yeah, the situation wasn't the best for her, but she's someone who was selfish and chose her own well being first and foremost, and in the process tried to kill someone who thought of her above all else. Yet the story tries to play up this dramatic and tragic love.

How can the audience be expected to buy into this story? She tries nothing against Tae-woo. She doesn't fight him, try to escape from him, and just meekly remains captured. She does something clearly wrong, and San like the moron that he is, just remains obsessed with her. By the end of the story, I was beginning to dislike San because he seemed to forget these very important facts due to the idiocy of the writing.

Oh Jung-se was great in this, and his character is the only one that didn't suffer from the terrible writing. San was likeable but became a prat when it involved Yoo-jin.

They never should have wasted time with this drama. By putting it in the same universe as Vampire Prosecutor, they're just infecting that good show with this crap show's torried smell.

O yeah..that ending really makes me excited for another season of Detective...*drumroll* Prosecutor!! Sorry San, it's not that I hate you n your gang now after you guys disappoint me in the last few minutes, but honestly, I'm already gettin my hopes high ever since San promised Dr. Blood that he'll find our Vampy Prosecutor..and when that Young Kwang ahjussi mentioned Bad Blood, I'm praying hard that I'll soon hear some good news bout having Min Tae Yeon back on my screen! *fingercross*
