Two Weeks: Episode 16 (Final)

I can’t tell if it it’s felt like two weeks, eight weeks, or eight years that we’ve been waiting for D-Day, but it’s finally here. Now all I need is for the hero to save the day, put all the baddies away, save his daughter, not die (ya hear), oh and get the girl. That’s all. Is that too much to ask? You’ve got one hour, Show. Make it count.

FINAL EPISODE RECAP

Boss Moon sneaks his way into Tae-san’s operating room and draws his knife…

Teacher Kim enters the other room, and his face goes white at the sight of the man lying on the operating table. It’s Dad. He calls himself “Boss,” the nickname his son used to call him as a child.

He gets up and takes out his half of the fountain pen that he carries with a makeshift cap, and pulls the cap out of Teacher Kim’s pocket. The two snap in place perfectly. When he hears the words, “Your name is Han Jin-hyuk,” Teacher Kim is visibly shaken.

Meanwhile, Boss Moon creeps closer, and raises the knife above his head with both hands. He stabs with all his force… and then freezes when there’s no reaction. He pulls the sheet off, and it’s a dummy. Phew, all is right with the world.

Flashback to Tae-san’s strategy session with Jae-kyung earlier that morning: He argues that there’s no stopping Boss Moon from chasing them down to the ends of the earth, and In-hye and Su-jin would have to live looking over their shoulders for the rest of their lives. He needs a way to put Boss Moon away for good, and so they devise a plan to lure him to the hospital by faking an early operation (the doc’s answer was no, they can’t do the transplant early, which thank goodness the story stuck to some logical details).

They wonder how they’ll insure that Boss Moon comes himself instead of just sending Teacher Kim, and that’s when Boss Han suggests—with heavy heart—that if they set up two possible operating rooms, they could catch both.

The trick is leaking the sting operation (hur) to the baddies, and that’s where the mole comes in. As suspected, both Jae-kyung and Tae-san know about the mole, but then at the task force meeting, Jae-kyung turns to him and asks if he can handle playing the part. Oh, the mole is in on it? What, now?

A flashback-within-a-flashback (I know) reveals that the captain had already confronted him about his moley activities, and he confessed through tears that he caved to money because of his father’s surgery. That was just the first instance, and the rest of the leaks were due to threats that he’d be outed for being a traitor.

He’s ready to go to jail for his crimes, but the captain says the department is willing to be lenient with him for being honest. Ugh, I get that they didn’t reveal this for the twist, but it would’ve been cleaner if the good guys had just used the evil mole to be the evil conduit.

Anyway, Mole plays his part and the detectives are there every step of the way. They even get to the security staff before Boss Moon does, and tells them to take any payoff offered, and act like they’re going to look the other way during the operation. Nice.

Tae-san gets checked out by the doctor, who gives him the all-clear for tomorrow’s operation.

Back in the present, Seung-woo catches Boss Moon on the security camera as he enters the ward. Once Boss Moon wraps his head around the fact that he’s been played, he quickly takes out climbing rope (and even a rope ladder) and prepares his exit strategy.

Seung-woo leads the charge, and thankfully there are at least a dozen uniforms there as backup. They bust into the operating room… but it’s empty. Whaa? He was just there!

What they fail to catch is one of the ceiling tiles being gently put back in place just above their heads. ARG. Boss Moon climbs through the air vents, and by the time Seung-woo finds a rope in the staircase, the other end is out the window. YOU LOST HIM? Seung-woo! You have ONE JOB.

Tae-san sits in a car in the hospital parking lot, with strict instructions from Jae-kyung not to move, otherwise he’s giving Boss Moon an open shot. He sees a flurry of activity and starts to get anxious, but forces himself to remain hidden.

Thankfully Teacher Kim isn’t giving them any trouble—he’s on his knees from the shock, right where we left him last, and Boss Han is just holding his hand.

The rope leading out the window turned out to be a red herring, because Boss Moon is still in the building. He climbs down the elevator shaft and gets to the basement, and manages to get into his delivery truck.

And of course, the one person who sees this is the one person who shouldn’t. Tae-san has already decided to go into the hospital anyway to see what’s going on, but he spots Boss Moon driving toward the exit, about to get away.

He runs, and in the split second that it’s stopped at the driveway, Tae-san opens up the back door and leaps into the truck. Ack. But you have surgery tomorrow. And you’re the guy he’s dying to kill. Ack.

The cops are, as always, one step too late. It’s Jae-kyung who notices that Tae-san is missing, and dammit all to hell—his phone is lying on the ground right next to her car. They at least think to check the security cameras, and learn that Tae-san jumped into the truck to go after Boss Moon.

Boss Moon pulls into a junkyard to switch cars, and as soon as he does, Tae-san shows up at his window and scares the daylights out of him. I do enjoy that look of terror on Boss Moon’s face. In fact, I’m going to rewind.

Tae-san swings a lead pipe through the car window and drags him out by the collar, screaming that he’ll never get away. Boss Moon makes a break for it and gets back in the truck, so Tae-san gets in the car to follow him.

They knock into each other in the narrow junkyard road, and then Tae-san actually crashes into the truck to get him to stop. Eep.

By the time he climbs out of the mangled car, Boss Moon is nowhere to be found. Tae-san just calls him out, taunting that he’s hiding like a rat. It works and Boss Moon comes out… armed with a two-by-four.

Boss Moon declares that there’s no such thing as an ending for someone like him, and Tae-san will never know what it took for him to become this man. Tae-san bites back with pity in his voice that he doesn’t care to dirty his ears with another rendition of the I-stole-my-siblings’-corn story. “Your brother and sister starved to death, didn’t they, you bastard?”

Tae-san: “Why, are you getting mad because I’m supposed to just lie there and do nothing, but now I’m refusing to be stomped on? That I was spineless, that I lived without a pulse—the only people who have the right to get mad at me for that are Su-jin and In-hye!”

He says that Boss Moon never had a right to interfere in his life in the first place, and makes it clear: “I never submitted to you; I submitted to the fear that the people I loved might get hurt.”

He walks right up to Boss Moon, unarmed, and unflinching. Boss Moon strikes with the wooden plank… and Tae-san hits it back with such force that it breaks into pieces. Badass. He leaps up and kicks Boss Moon down with one blow, all fired up with righteous anger.

The team is still struggling to track the truck on traffic cameras, and Seung-woo has to tell In-hye the bad news. She falls to the ground in shock.

By the time we get back to the junkyard, it’s Boss Moon who’s scrambling to run away, while Tae-san just keeps coming after him. He punches him until Boss Moon actually faints, and then hilariously ties him up with rope, reminding him that he swore he’d make him rot in jail for thirty years.

Tae-san walks away, which instantly makes me nervous. You never turn your back on a villain in the eleventh hour! Sure enough, Boss Moon wakes up and finds himself tied up in ropes. He searches for the nearest weapon to free himself, and digs out a lighter in the dirt. It still works.

He reaches behind him and flicks the lighter on to burn off the ropes… when suddenly the entire junked tanker behind him lights on fire. Whoa. Is he gonna die? Wait, Tae-san’s not going to be framed for THIS too, right?

Jae-kyung and the cops finally arrive at the junkyard, and Tae-san says he tied Boss Moon up back there… and boom, the junkyard blows just as he’s turning back to point her in the direction. Did he die?

In-hye waits outside the hospital, after getting the call from Jae-kyung that they’re on their way back. Tae-san gets out and apologizes for making her worry, and says with a smile that they got Moon Il-seok, and she never has to worry about that man again.

In-hye just grabs him in a hug, so relieved that he’s okay. Gaaaah, the look on Tae-san’s face. It’s so good. He hesitates for a moment to let himself believe it, and slowly puts his arms around her. He breaks into this I-can’t-believe-it smile for just a split second.

Jae-kyung looks on at the couple’s happy reunion… and then Seung-woo arrives just behind them. Oh noes. Poor Seung-woo. All it takes is one look at the hug and his heart sinks.

Congresswoman Jo continues plans for her charity auction as if nothing’s happened, and gets the call that Boss Moon was arrested. We see him being wheeled into the hospital screaming and flailing, half his face burned beyond recognition. Is it wrong that this makes me happy?

Tae-san stops by to watch Su-jin sleep with this adoring look on his face, and then goes under for his marrow extraction. Su-jin wakes up and gets mad at Mom for not waking her—she didn’t even get to say thank you to Dad when he’s saving her life and everything. I love how terribly upset she is about this.

Mom hands her a notebook that Dad left, asking Su-jin to write down all the things that she wants to do and all her favorite foods. She instantly lights up and fills the notebook with things like “play soccer” and “draw” and “Mom and Dad and Su-jin all sleep together.”

When Tae-san wakes up, Jae-kyung is sitting by his bedside. He asks about Congresswoman Jo’s auction, and Jae-kyung sighs that it’s probably going on right now, without a hitch.

She’s here to give Tae-san one final present, and tells him that Halfwit turned himself in after Boss Moon’s arrest. He confessed to everything—that Boss Moon was the culprit who killed her father eight years ago, that he was the culprit in the attack five years ago, and of course Mi-sook’s murder. It means that Tae-san can actually clear his ex-con record completely.

And then it’s Su-jin’s turn to receive the transplant, and Tae-san watches from the window in amazement, as his blood starts to flow into her veins. Daddy and daughter wave to each other with smiles.

Brainy Smurf takes Boss Moon’s place at the auction, and smoothly buys all the pieces laced with drugs. Congresswoman Jo gets her bank account filled with the cash she needs for her new life, while Brainy acquires a boatload of drugs as the new head of Boss Moon’s organization.

But when he takes delivery of the pieces from the auction, the cops are waiting to arrest him. Excellent.

Meanwhile Congresswoman Jo walks through the airport, having slipped out before the police raid… but there’s Jae-kyung, two feet behind her. Yaaaay. I was ready to throw something if they let her get on that plane.

Jae-kyung arrests her for drug trafficking, and her partner cuffs her in the middle of the airport. We go back in the timeline to the first time Tae-san saw her crazy obsessed board, and noted with some interest that he’d heard Boss Moon complaining about having to maintain a business relationship with a woman who likes money.

Once the auction was confirmed, Jae-kyung had asked if Boss Moon dabbled in art collecting, and Tae-san said he’s never shown interest in art, and says half-jokingly that maybe if it were lined with drugs, it’d be another story altogether.

Later Jae-kyung had pieced it together, once she found out that Congresswoman Jo was acting like a person who was leaving the country for good—like someone about to make one last big score.

Congresswoman Jo sits in the interrogation room, eyes closed. Jae-kyung saunters in with her three passports and outlines her plan to disappear, while Congresswoman Jo quietly reaches into her jacket for a hidden pill.

But without even pausing for effect, Jae-kyung casually tells her to watch this video message from her son before taking that pill, and plays it for her. The sound of her son’s voice makes her open her eyes, and she sees him holding up a portrait of her with angel wings. It breaks her resolve.

Jae-kyung pries the pill out of her hand and scoffs, “To be an angel to one son, you stole the tears of countless people.” The woman actually sheds a tear, which I didn’t think was possible.

A little while later it’s time for Tae-san’s trial, and as Jae-kyung promised, he wipes his record clean. The chief prosecutor takes credit for not accepting Jae-kyung’s resignation, and Tae-san apologizes to her one last time for her father’s case eight years ago.

She thanks him instead, for being able to catch both people responsible because of him. She offers up a handshake to congratulate him on becoming a free man. Aw I really did love their partnership.

Tae-san returns to Boss Han’s room that night, and ajusshi stumbles home a little drunk. He hands Tae-san an envelope of money, just as a gesture because he feels terrible about his son killing Man-seok and chasing Tae-san for weeks.

They take turns arguing who’s more grateful for the other, which is sweet, and then Tae-san asks how ajusshi isn’t angrier about what happened to his son. Boss Han just sighs that he’s lived long enough to feel grateful that he found his son even now, knowing that even if it’s a late start, it’s a start.

Tae-san agrees and repeats his phrase, “Even now…” He returns the envelope and refuses to take the money, so then Boss Han asks if he doesn’t want to live with him. He says they could live in the same neighborhood at least, if he doesn’t want to live in the same house, and Tae-san laughs. How cute, ajusshi has grown attached.

Tae-san asks if it’s because he’s worried about him, and Boss Han scoffs that it’s nothing of the sort, but you know it is.

Su-jin gets to move from the sterile ward to a regular hospital room today, and she gets extra nervous about primping for Daddy’s arrival, saying that he promised to shake her hand when she got out.

Tae-san comes in and greets her with a handshake as promised, and then brings out the monkey he’s been hiding behind his back. In-hye’s eyes widen in surprise. Su-jin’s had enough of this handshake business and just hugs him, thank goodness.

He crouches down and reaches out to her face, and she mirrors him exactly, doing everything he does. It’s so cute. She tells Mom that she didn’t know it before, but Dad’s nose is really pretty.

He just takes in every inch of her, trying not to cry, and holds her close.

Jae-kyung starts to take down the notes on her white board, and then sits in silence eating her cereal. Suddenly Mi-sook appears in front of her, smiling back at her just like she would on a normal day. Jae-kyung: “I’m sorry. Thank you.”

Her tears start to spill over, and Mi-sook wipes them away. As they smile, the camera pans over to her white board, now wiped clean.

Elsewhere, someone’s having a very different breakfast. Boss Moon struggles to eat his prison meal, now blind and disfigured. He accidentally knocks the corn off his plate, and while he stumbles around looking for it, the inmate next to him reaches over and steals his corn. AHAHAHA. I freaking love it.

Congresswoman Jo just sits silently in her cell, eyes closed. She still scares me, because I don’t think jail time will change her in the least.

Teacher Kim seems at peace in his cell, reading another doting letter from Dad with a smile on his face.

The cops gather for a drink, minus the mole, who turns up to bring them their food. He was naturally fired, but went into business and is much happier as a civilian. Seung-woo just got back from a vacation (a forced suspension) but the captain is eager to get him back on duty.

He says not today, because Su-jin gets to go home from the hospital today. He shows up at the hospital with chocolates, and Su-jin beams when she sees him. In-hye is clearly surprised that he showed up, and asks how his vacation was. He calls it a repentance trip, since after all it was a forced suspension.

He helps Su-jin finish packing, and the three of them head out holding hands… except Tae-san is there waiting at the curb. Dude, the family is wearing matching windbreakers. Not that I doubted this was the way the loveline would go, but that’s your answer right there.

He and Seung-woo exchange bows, and Seung-woo tells Su-jin that her dad is here, as if giving her permission to go. She runs into Daddy’s arms and he lifts her up atop his shoulders.

In-hye looks up at Seung-woo with this guilty look, but he does the good guy thing and smiles back at her, not letting her see his heartbreak.

The family goes camping and Tae-san does everything on Su-jin’s wishlist, starting with soccer. Then the pair of artists sit down to draw portraits of Mom, and Su-jin asks what Dad liked about Mom when they first met. You little cupid.

He says that when they first met, Dad sort of made a mistake, but instead of thinking the worst of him, Mom took his words at face value. We flash back to the post-boob-grab argument on the beach, where she was mostly thrilled that she did such a good job of playing a statue that he didn’t think she was a real person.

Dad insists on cooking for them, and then over dinner, Su-jin asks where Daddy lives. He stiffens up at the question, and tells her that he made a lot of mistakes in his life. He asks for some time before he can explain everything to her, and she apologizes for asking, admitting that Mom told her not to.

The three of them go to sleep holding hands, and Su-jin asks Daddy to sing her a lullaby. He doesn’t know any, so she asks for any song he knows all the words to, and he starts singing.

The song startles In-hye, and we flash back to their happy days when she had sung him the same song, and they’d argued about the lyrics (he argued they were sad, while she liked the romance of it).

It’s then that she had asked him to quit his job with Boss Moon, swearing that it wasn’t because she was ashamed, but because she believed he could make more of himself. Tae-san agreed, knowing full well he could never ask a girl like her to stay by someone like him if he didn’t clean up his act.

He wondered why she didn’t say anything sooner, and she said she wanted to wait for him. And finally, a kiss.

Back in the present, they sit outside after Su-jin is asleep (or so they think—she’s really awake and listening from inside the tent). Tae-san says that Su-jin takes after her because she’s so pretty and kind, and he tells In-hye that he wants to be the kind of father Su-jin can lean on, whether she’s nine or eighteen or married with kids of her own.

In-hye says he will, but he tells her that in order to become that kind of father, first he has to be that kind of man. Augh, I love him. It isn’t good news for In-hye though, because she understands what this means—he brought them on this trip because he’s leaving. Wait, what?

He thanks her for forgiving him, but calls two weeks too short a time to change everything. I agree, but uh, extenuating circumstances, hello. Also, why does it require you to leave? He reminds her that she cut herself off from her own family because of him, and has bridges to mend as well. And then he tells her not to lose Seung-woo, who was there for her and Su-jin for four years. Noooo. What. It’s too late for noble idiocy!

So then In-hye goes to meet Seung-woo, but then it turns out to be another flashback, to before he left on his repentance trip. He tells her that it isn’t because he loves her less, but he doesn’t have the courage to ignore Tae-san, and In-hye, and Su-jin’s feelings. “And more importantly, that’s the father Su-jin wants.”

He tells her not to let Tae-san run off on his own, knowing that Tae-san doesn’t feel like he has the right to hold onto her. In-hye knows, but she says that what Tae-san needs most right now is time, which is true for all of them.

Back at the campfire, In-hye tells Tae-san all this, and says she’s grateful to Seung-woo and calls him a good person. She turns to Tae-san: “I have a good eye for people.” She tells him not to worry about her and Su-jin, and do as he wants.

He assures her that no matter what he sets out to do now, he’ll live right because of Su-jin. He asks timidly if once he gets his life together, she’ll let him see Su-jin once in a while, and In-hye makes it clear that she’ll get to see Dad all she wants. In fact she turns it around and says: “Whenever Su-jin wants to see her dad, when she needs him—you have an obligation to show your face. Don’t forget it.” Aww.

With tears in his eyes, he says over and over, “I won’t forget it. How could I forget that? Is that a thing to forget? I won’t forget.”

They go back to bed, but nobody can really sleep, least of all Su-jin. She turns over and puts her arm around Dad, just to hug him a little longer, and so Tae-san puts his arms around her to hold her as she sleeps.

He gives her a kiss on the forehead, as In-hye watches with a smile. Tears fall as he hugs her, and he says in voiceover:

Tae-san: There are people smiling at me. They look at me and smile. I smile too. A bud sprouts in my heart. A flower blooms.

And in the morning, he walks down a tree-lined road. Su-jin’s voice calls out from behind him: “Daddy!” He turns back to smile at her.

The end.

 
COMMENTS

You know, that was more open-ended than I expected, but it feels more realistic than forcing a bow on a two-week story. We get enough hints that a happy ending is in store, and even get a glimpse of it during the camping the trip. But it would be too easy to have an instant family unit after two weeks of struggle—life-altering fight-to-the-death struggle that it was—it doesn’t earn you a free Presto Acme Happy Family. I like that Tae-san knows this and still wants to earn it the hard way, and become the kind of man who deserves In-hye (though part of me worries that he’d never let himself believe he truly deserves her). At least we’ve seen her be assertive enough for the both of them in the past, and I don’t think that In-hye’s feelings are ambiguous, in that she clearly doesn’t choose Seung-woo and lets him do the kind thing and step away.

And it’s clear that Tae-san is doing all of this for the same reason he was going to go clean eight years ago—he wants to stand by her side proudly and be someone she can lean on, and now he wants to be that for both her and Su-jin. I don’t know that he really needs to go away-away to do it (you people have lost enough time, is all I’m sayin’) but I don’t want to sweep his past under the rug either. He has a lot to answer for, even with his criminal record wiped clean. In two weeks’ time we’ve come to trust that he’ll live well and not waste his life anymore, but it’s a different thing altogether for him to take those first steps to actually make that happen. Deciding you’ll be a better man is one thing; becoming one is another journey altogether. I think the show is very clear on that front: this two-week trial gave him the will to fight to survive, and earns him his second chance at life. He has to work for the rest.

I’m satisfied with where we end up as far as the central plot goes—justice prevails, baddies get their due, and Boss Moon gets his corn stolen. That little beat just made my day, more than the self-inflicted burns or the beat-down from Tae-san (though that was awesome too), because it’s like a little grace note of perfection: immensely petty and really satisfying. The villains each get fitting wrap-ups, in that you get the sense that Boss Moon has become his own worst nightmare—powerless, irrelevant, gum under people’s shoes—while Congresswoman Jo sits in her cell thinking she did nothing wrong because she’s a sociopath that way. And Teacher Kim, well, his flicker of emotion might mean he’s not a cyborg. Maybe. And I really loved Jae-kyung’s send-off, which had such a sweet melancholy tone. Part me had the sinking feeling that in wrapping up the case, she’s lost the single-minded purpose that drove her for eight years, and she might have a mental breakdown. For her a new beginning felt scary but necessary—she might wake up tomorrow and not know what to do with herself, but that’s probably a good thing.

As a finale, this episode managed to satisfy the bulk of what I wanted for the characters, which is saying a lot since I came into it feeling like I’d be disappointed with anything less than a happy-but-realistic ending. It tied up the bad-guy chase early enough (with a really great reversal from Tae-san who makes his stand against Moon—a necessary “graduation” moment if there ever was one) to leave enough time for an emotional build in the finish, without rushing the daddy-daughter reunion. It’s the thing we’ve been waiting for all series long, the real, non-imaginary, non-dream hug. It was no question that he’d get to save her (otherwise, where be the redemption) but it was their reunion afterwards that I had been on pins and needles to watch play out onscreen. I thought Lee Jun-ki’s performance, as it was throughout the series when he was with either of the girls, felt sweetly understated and perfectly awkward. It kind of kills me that after all that, he’s scared to do anything more than offer her a handshake. So fitting.

Two Weeks’ central conceit really worked to its advantage in keeping the story chugging along. It’s a show that has such a strong premise and motivation (life and death stakes, danger, danger, murder, danger) that the central plot is literally just that one straight shot we set up in Episode 1. On the flipside, that puts much more weight on the finale to close up the story with a satisfying conclusion. If we’ve spent fifteen episodes with all roads leading to this, it’s the kind of burden on a finale that could retroactively make me hate the time I had invested. Thankfully it made me happy I had gone on the run for eight weeks, even if it made me a nervous wreck sometimes. I do wish the show had been a little twistier at times (the auction turned out to be ridiculously simplistic), and the finale’s use of flashbacks was overkill. We’re used to flashbacks on this show, and they’re mostly used to great effect, since on the two-week premise alone you can’t go very deep with characters without them. But still, in the finale it seemed like a crutch, or a way to fancify the proceedings, which should’ve been rather straightforward. I would’ve rather watched our characters learn the crucial plot points as they happened, not have them be kept from us for the surprise. Because, uh, it’s not a surprise if we already know. The point is that we want to be with them when they make the discovery.

Overall it was Tae-san’s character that made the series worth watching, because his redemption feels truly earned. They weren’t afraid to make him despicable at the start, knowing how hard he’d have to fight to survive, to stop feeling sorry for himself, to think that life was worth living. His internal journey had a great progression as he started to grow a spine and change his external circumstances for the better, and I really watched the entire series for his redemption arc. It wasn’t that he was saving his daughter (noble and heroic, yes), but that he would be saved by being able to be a father to her in that one way—being needed became his lifeline, and that felt so raw and earnest. There are a few repeated beats when Tae-san looks at In-hye, or Su-jin (and in the end both), in amazement that they’re laughing and smiling because of him and for him. There’s something so lovely about how simple love is to him—he spent his life feeling worthless and hating himself, but In-hye and Su-jin thank him for being born, and are happy to see him, without reservation. It still kind of blows my mind that that one fact makes him so happy, but it’s also a reminder that he’ll never take anything for granted from this day forward.

I'm glad the good guys survive, and the bad guys are punished.
(Totally Unlike I Summon u Gold, where everyone gets a Happy-ever-after, good and bad ppl alike, which renders it meaningless, totally unfair and down right dissatisfying.)

SW is a gentleman to the end, bowing out before IH tells him to, cos he recognizes the pain of the couple's forced separation for 8 years, and SJ's love for her dad. When he is ok with it, we are not as torn up for his sake.

Of course IH is not over TS. Let's face it, if your Ex looks like LJK, would you be over him any time soon?
Just look at him in that teal-colored wind-breaker. It takes my breath away! I'd just say, Please don't leave! Come home with us, and let's make a few more babies like SJ! Ke ke.
I believe LJK is getting more handsome as he gets a few years older. When he first appeared on screen in his early twenties, he did look effeminate.

BTW, the beginning of this ep, with Moon slipping away from the police at the hosp is just ridiculous. Can't believe they have a dozen cops converge on OT 7. How many guns does it take to stop one Moon? Why wouldn't they have some cops at exit points? Apparently just so we can have a chase scene. Tho it leads to a showdown between TS and Moon, it's 19 mins. I can do without.

Got to go re-watch the last 20 mins, of cute family reunion. And then continue with my marathon of the whole series. I'm at ep 6 in the 2nd round.

Love it. Wonderful series. Beautiful LJK and super cute Sujinnie!

This show gets better the 2nd viewing around. All the little bits and pieces that were over-looked in the first viewing becos we were too intent on finding out if TS would survive, come into view, and what seemed irrational is no longer, as everything fall into place.

Great show!

I think there were cops at the exits, but they seemed not to have anticipated the underground garage, hello? All the "civilians" dressed like patients seemed to have been undercover cops. They nodded occasionally in odd ways as if they were reporting in about the situation.

Solid series. From the very beginning this show had a story to tell, it never faltered or deviated, and kept us invested for "two weeks." Man it's gonna be hard not to have something to look forward to on Wed-Thursdays.

I watch a lot of dramas and I would say that this is one of the best series this year (together with I Can Hear Your Voice and Master's Sun).
There was never once when I felt that it was being draggy or anything, and my emotions went on a roller coaster ride with Zhang Tae San.
Because of these few dramas I looked forward to Wednesdays and Thursdays, but now I'm just hoping something will be there to fill the spot :P

This drama will always have a special place in my heart, and I dare say it is the best Lee Jun ki drama I have ever watched. (trust me, I watched all of his dramas, good and bad before haha)

I liked the ending, but it reminded me a little of Resurrection, where the hero goes hiking in search of redemption.

He is not going hiking, even figuratively speaking. Hee.
Every time he tries to leave after his visit, SJ will call him back, until one day, he'll just stay! And that day will be soon, very very soon, cos he is still wearing the same outfit from his 2 weeks on the run!

Ah, and being compared to Resurrection is NOT a bad deal. That is probably THE feel good redemption/revenge drama. Yeah, exactly, when Tae San turns back? Yeah, that is probably a deliberate nod to Resurrection, which would make sense.

Thank you gf and jb for recapping this drama~

I cried happy tears. So glad he didn't die. And girlfriday, I agree with everything you said, especially the last two sentences.

"There’s something so lovely about how simple love is to him—he spent his life feeling worthless and hating himself, but In-hye and Su-jin thank him for being born, and are happy to see him, without reservation. It still kind of blows my mind that that one fact makes him so happy, but it’s also a reminder that he’ll never take anything for granted from this day forward."

I love that this drama is about parents-children relationship. Now I miss my dad ...

AND I want Tae San to incorporate him in his new life. Maybe he could go join Boss Han in his search for himself, start a new business together, or something.

The other alternative I like to imagine is his becoming a detective and working with Jae Gyeong. They really rocked.

In some ways, I liked Tae San's chemistery with Jae Gyeong more than his with In Hye. (Or maybe it was the actors' chemistry. I sort of wondered whether LJK and KSY hit it off. They're about the same age.) The look on JG's face when she saw IH & TS hugging... that looked a little bit rueful. Who knows, maybe I'm projecting my own desires onto the situation.

If you watch his Healing Camp episode, you'll find that LJK is no different than Tae San in real life. Meaning, he's very talented and seems like a good/decent guy, but he thinks less of himself. He thinks he doesn't deserve what he has, or at least he can't believe that there are people who love him for who he is. It's a bit sad, but it makes me love him more.

That's why it's so nice to see people become his fan more and more, let's all give him some support! <3

Oh! And thank you dramabeans' Javabeans and GirlFriday for all your hard work! <3

The show was also called Knee Deep Guru.
Those episode revealed so much about him.

I love little Sujinnie's voice so much. Every time she speaks, it is like music to my ears.
But I do think she is much cuter in her pretty beannies, than she is without them.
This role is perfect for her, and she for it. Now, I'll be waiting for her next project.
The little actress, Lee Chae Mi, born 2006, which makes her 7 years old!

Personally I found the cuteness way overdone, so much so that for the last 4 episodes I pretty much skipped just about all those scenes. At some point it started to seem like artificial manufactured cuteness to me.

I've had disappointments and frustrations with this drama. The ending didn't really satisfy me. All of the planning to catch the bad guys felt a bit rush. I am just happy that none of the good guy dies, especially the cutie Su-jin.

I'm just sad that there's no love line between Tae San-Jae Kyung. I was hoping to see how strong their chemistry is based on their acting. I mean, I would never imagine pairing Jun Ki and Kim So Yeon together as a couple (much the same to So Ji Sub-Gong Hyo Jin). So, I wanted to see how it would go for this drama. So Ji Sub-Gong Hyo Jin were the unlikely coupon but their chemistry is hot! So, I was sort of expecting that from Jun Ki-So Yeon. I want to see sparks and maybe a kiss. TT_TT

Nonetheless, I'm glad the surgery was a success and Tae Sung is cleared of his previous prison record.

I did feel it was a bit rushed but I guess they really wanted to pack a punch in one episode. I felt it was poorly written though. especially the part with Boss Moon using the lighter. they definitely could have filmed that scene much better rather than cut it off and let us see that he survived later. Clearly, it was some budget issue and they didn't want to do a fire scene properly.

Tae San having to go away to settle his life is just...weird. and haha the pluck of Boss Han to suggest that they live together! What if Tae San wants to live with In-hye and Su jin only? Lol.

It's not mentioned above so I don't know if I imagined it, but I somehow thought Teacher Kim was the one who told the police officers that Boss Moon was headed to the basement.

About Tae San- Jae Kyung, i highly doubt a loveline could have resulted especially with the strong chemistry that is required to bond Tae San and In-hye over all these years. Perhaps if they had ended with some Tae San-Jae kyung and maybe Boss Han partnership in a private investigator's firm, that would have made me all warm inside :D and Teacher Kim can join in next time too.

IMO, it shows that TS doesn't think he has the right to be with his girls right away, and IH feels that she should respect his feelings. Sujinnie, however, may have a very different agenda. As we know, with her parents, whatever Sujinnie wants, Sujinnie gets, right?

The last 30 minutes of this episode killed me more than anything else because seriously, how can you NOT watch Sujin and her appa and melt into an utter puddle and rage against the world because THE WORLD COULD HAVE HAD EIGHT MORE YEARS OF THIS.

Really, I feel like this last part of the show (post all the excitement) really made this episode solid. There were quite a few holes and leaps and jumps throughout the first 30-40 minutes (20ish cops, one job, ONE MAN TO APPREHEND...and you let him get away) but the following 30 minutes made up for it all.

Although the I-want-mushy-happiness part of me raged slightly at the ending at first, the other part of me thought of how great it is. Two weeks (plus six or so, what with Su-jin's surgery recovery time) can't heal everything; it manages to get forgiveness to happen, but Tae-san is a man who literally is starting from the bottom up. On the bright side well, this time he's at least going /up/ with a clean slate, but that also means he has a whole lot to climb. He's willing to climb it and make it up there, but it's a path to go. At first I wanted to rage again because - noble idiot much - but then In-hye's words made me pause.

“Whenever Su-jin wants to see her dad, when she needs him—you have an obligation to show your face. Don’t forget it.” These words, and Sujin's very existence tell us that Tae-san's climb isn't going to be alone. Whether he somehow finds work somewhere, or goes into farming with Boss Han (LOL watch it happen), Su-jin is going to want her appa there (if she doesn't demand to see his face every day, I will be surprised). In-hye is going to make sure Tae-san can't fall into that pit of self-hatred again. Even though he's leaving now, it's not a "I will leave and you see me maybe every 5 years" kind of thing - I get the feeling that every recital Su-jin has, performance, school graduation, end of the year ceremony, first day of school...Tae-san will be there because, guess who is she going to want to show his face? Su-jinnie isn't going to let her appa miss out her most important moments.

Sure, they aren't one big happy family living together in perfect peace but you get the idea they'll be there one day, definitely, and there's a long journey of recovery to go. And not to mention, this time Tae-san realizes what he could lose. I just can't imagine that he really would disappear completely and not see his daughter for years on end (although really, Drama, it couldn't hurt to add a scene where we see In-hye inputting his number into her phone or something so we have assurance of contact. I don't care if we don't know where you're going, Tae-san, but you better have some mode of communication with you. How else will you know when Su-jin wants to see your face?).

So maybe that imagining of this happy family (can you see Su-jin in her first ballet performance or something, and Tae-san nervously appearing in the crowd and her face brightening? Or the first day of school, with both umma and appa walking her there?) is my way of dealing with how the ending made itself (did they have to have him walk away lik that and say he is leaving because obviously I have not totally killed the "MUSHY ENDING" desire in me yet), but really, I'm right in this aren't I? It's not just my reaching, it's something that will happen.

The corn being stolen honestly made me laugh out loud and its definitely just desserts, but I have to say regarding how Boss Moon was caught - cops YOU HAD ONE JOB. When you have 20 cops, how do you ALL rush in to apprehend one man? I mean even if that one man is armed and dangerous HE IS ONE MAN. The other, oh, I don't know, 15 of you could, y'know, GUARD ALL THE EXITS. Although I get how it works in terms of plot because at the end, this is Tae-san's story and all...that part just, really. One job, y'all. One.

Other than that and the heavy-handed flashbacks, though, it really was so satisfying. That white board we see after Jae-kyung imagines Mi-sook is so meaningful as well. Finally, after almost a decade, that part of her life is truly put to a close. She has a clean start as well now - it's not just Tae-san who is going to need to find a new meaning, a new path, in life. Jae-kyung has an entirely empty board and now it's her decision on how she's going to fill it up this time, and from what we've seen of her, it's not going to be anything less than fitting of a prosecutor who will never give up on the truth.

Seung-woo might be technically the one with the losing end of the stick but...he has closure. And he's still Su-jin's ahjussi, at the end. Staying with a woman you know doesn't love you, will not love you, as much as she loves her daughter's father can't be a good feeling. What pleases me so much is here, it's not a Noble Sacrifice™ kind of thing (I'm looking at you, Jung Tae-san). He's an adult, In-hye's an adult, and they both make the adult decision that well, this isn't a life they will continue on one path together. And well, Seung-woo comes out of this entire two weeks (plus what, six more weeks of reflection) with a new view on how to approach his career, his cases, and more.

(That said, after thinking of all this I realize that at the end of this drama, technically hasn't it been more like 2 months? The doctor detailed to Tae-san that after the bone marrow transplant, Su-jin needed to stay in her super clean room for a few more weeks, and then the regular patient room for another two weeks....so....Tae-san, where has your hustling been post-trial for that new life, eh? By "I'm leaving" you better mean "I'm going to organize my new apartment and start working, see you in a week.")

Oh man, I was on pins and needles this whole episode...No joke, it took me a few seconds to realize that Tae San and In Hye were FINALLY hugging because I was so busy chanting that I wouldn't believe Il Seok was caught until they produced a body. Then, it took me probably 20 minutes of our awesome 30 at the end to realize that nothing was really going to go wrong. I've been accustomed to the idea that I can't rest easy with this show.

That being said, I can't believe all our good guys made it out alive and all the bad guys got actual comeuppance! No dying their way out of it, they are serving out their sentences and it's now up to them to come to terms with it.

And I did like that the ending had a real feel to it though of course I'm still thinking that Tae San doesn't really have to go that far and especially not for too long to start having it be ok to be part of their lives. He can baby step it, he doesn't have to wait til he's perfect, cause that won't happen. Like In Hye said, he needs to forgive himself. So here's to hoping that he'll figure it out pretty quick, but I know that In Hye and especially Su Jin, are going to make sure he gets plenty of love and acceptance for his journey.

Thanks so much for recapping!

The ending was a little too open ended for me but the series wrapped up well. It's been such an insane ride and I can't believe it's already coming to an end.

I will REALLY miss this drama because of Lee Jun Ki, he's always been my favourite Korean actor since 07. But especially in this drama, the tremendous growth and path to redemption we seen in him just made me love him even more. I would say my favourite pairing in this drama that I will miss dearly is Tae San and Jae Kyung. During the latter part of the series with their teamwork made it all worthwhile. Their chemistry is undeniable. It's like the scene from Stepbrothers, "did we just become best friends? Yep." Lol. I really felt a sense of closeness with those two. I also really liked Jae Kyung's character. She seemed like a really genuine person. I have so much respect for her. I would actually really want to be friends with this character if I could. Hahaha.

I was a bit choked that Detective Im "lost" In Hye and Soo Jin. The scene where he delivered chocolates to Soo Jin upon her discharge and then they meet up with Tae San, my heart just broke for him. His eyes just reflected the bittersweet situation he was enduring. Yes, I have to admit during some parts of the drama, Detective Im got annoying to me. But those eyes, those eyes, they had such sadness, longing and lingering. It made me remember how he provided and supported In Hye and Soo Jin and his noble heart. The same image he upheld when he was first introduced in the drama. He is a very solid guy.

Well here's to the coming of fall without Lee Jun Ki for the rest of my weeks into winter. :( I really can't believe it's over. I feel especially attached to this drama. I still remember the beginning parts of this drama with summer still in the air. Tae San escaping, and helping the woman give birth. All of it seems almost nostalgic now. I will DEFINITELY stay tuned for Jun Ki's next project. He's more charming than ever. <3

yeah, I've had a monster crush on him for about that long too, and what I love most about him is that he's never let his spectacular looks act as an excuse to be a mediocre actor, unlike so, so many hallyu actors/idol actors. He's an actor who gets better and better with each project, and I find that his time in the army has given him a certain earthiness/manliness he didn't have in his early twenties - in My Girl he looked like a fairy prince, but in Arang and here he looks like an insanely hot MAN. He still takes my breath away, but for different reasons.

The ending was open enough for me - I have faith that Tae-san will find his way back to In-hye and Su-jin one day and will be a constant in their lives until he's ready to take that role. So it's not really our little family that I wished for a happier ending for, it's Seung-woo and Jae-kyung (and I totally agree, Tae-san and Jae-kyung were great together. Though I liked her interactions with Seung-woo too, and I hope their respective futures hold enough happiness - my heart broke for him too, when they were outside the police station).

It's a shame the ratings weren't so great, though admittedly Master's Sun was far too strong as competition - this is a good drama, and should be appreciated.

Definitely agree with your first paragraph. The army does these "flower boys" good. I'm loving his more manly/slightly rugged look coming out of the army. Compared to his role in from one of my favourites before Time Between Dog and Wolf, his feature are definitely more masculinized or just more pronounced? Haha

Honestly, I never got into Master's Sun and I am sad that Two Weeks was not as recognized. But now that Master's Sun is also over, Heirs is starting to take to the hype. As anticipated as Heirs is, I'm really going to miss these summer dramas especially with also Good Doctor coming to an end this upcoming week. :( :(

you know that was a perfect ending. as I said before all it comes down to is whether they both stay alive, father and daughter, to just give each other a hug. a simple hug. and thats what we saw.

I am glad I was wrong about other things, but I had a feeling Seung Woo would give up hoping to be called Dad.

I kind of feel even shocked about how they ended with Boss Moon. whoa. crippling him, blinding, whoa.

and I actually like that Teacher Kim got such an ending. I feel sorry for this character despite everything.

and where is Tae San going? Paris, I bet. to become an artist.

What makes this such a perfect ending is that it is points to them becoming a happy family but is open-ended enough that we can each imagine how that might happen. I imagine Tae San going into business with Boss Han, perhaps to market some of those herbal remedies Han spent years working on while he was hiding from Boss Moon. Tae San is smart enough and innovative enough (and now courageous enough) to be a successful businessman, and it would be an honorable and worthwhile business. As soon as they got the business off the ground, Tae San would be able to provide a home for In Hye and Soo Jin. In the meantime, while he is getting it started, he would live with Boss Han on the farm and visit his girls regularly. It would make sense that the few weeks Soo Jin was in the hospital would not be enough time for him to be far enough along with the business idea to want to tell In Hye about it, but it would not take years to get that business or another farm-related business going.

I would have liked the scene you described as well. Many times this is the scene in the finale of a kdrama.

However, the facts are that for the past two weeks Tae-sun was constantly on the run from law enforcement and the bad guys; several attempts were made on his and his family's life; he had to stay alive for Su-jin to have the surgery; had to revisit his past choices/actions and the way he was just existing and not living.

He was absent from Su-jin and In-Hye for the past 8 years. These past 2 weeks fully demonstrated that yes he was a father full of love. The love for his family is there, but like Ko Man-Seok said to him in a flashback scene before his death he needed to change the way he was living and start preparing for life with a family.

Because of the way he had lived these past 8 years, he was unable to provide for his family like a father normally does (job, home, financially, etc.)

During the family camping trip...Hence the apology and confession to Su-jin that he had made mistakes. The heartfelt talk with In-Hye about avoiding visiting the hospital more to see Su-jin because he was ashamed of addressing the question of where he lives and what he does for a living.

Earlier, we saw a dream sequence of his fear of Su-jin finding out that he had a criminal past. Before the surgery it was all about staying alive so that Su-jin can live. After the surgery, to me Tae-sun felt the need to step up to the plate in the eyes of Su-jin and In-Hye to at least if not better than what Seo-woo provided them.

We continually witnessed how hard it was for Jang Tae-San to forgive himself. He received forgiveness from Seo In-Hye, Seo Soo-Jin (absenteeism) and Park Jae-Kyung (father's real murder captured). Im Seung-Woo recognized and understood Jang Tae-San about the choices/actions one could make when the lives of Seo In-Hye and Seo Soo-Jin are threatened/placed in immediate danger.

The fact that he is willing to put in the work to address his inadequacies (self love, personal forgiveness, worthiness, etc.) is admirable.

The final scene of Tae-San and the sound of Soo-Jin's voice was consistent. It was a reminder to us that he still has the subconscious Su-jin as his moral center to continually guide him toward making the right decisions/choices on his path of redemption. Ultimately, this will enable him to return to Su-jin and In-Hye as the person they expect and know he is capable of being.

The discussion threads for 2 Weeks were always full of speculation as to whether Tae-San or any of the other characters would survive till the end. Many have remarked on the importance and connection of Tae-San and Su-jin to each other. Both were dealing with the possibility of death or the chance at rebirth--Tae-San was literally saving Su-jin's life with his bone marrow donation and she was saving him by bringing him back to life.

Initially, the ending scene gave the impression to many that the writer was saying, I will not kill off Tae-San, but Su-jin will not get her happy family right away. You can’t have it both ways. Remember, I have given you multiple instances of perfect moments between Tae-San and Su-jin.

When I first watched the finale episode, I spent most of the time jittery and uneasy that the death of Tae-San would likely occur. Compared to that alternative, I was fine with the “open ending” scene. The writer did not give us a beautifully wrapped gift tied up nicely with a pretty bow. In my mind, Tae-San, Su-jin, and In-Hye ended up together as a family (the dialogue/scenes from the camping trip…the song sung by In-Hye in a flashback and Tae-San singing it as a lullaby to Su-jin echoed this). Also, mixed in amongst the action and suspense, this drama has always had a multilayered emotional plot.

We have watched the progression of these characters for the past 16 episodes, particularly Tae-San. So was it really an open ending as most of us originally thought?

I re-watched the finale of Two Weeks. Have you considered that the final scene of Su-jin's voice calling out to Tae-san's was a time jump to the moment that he was returning to his family?

Open Thread #7.5.1.1 Carole McDonnell October 4th, 2013 at 10:07 am

Wow, there’s a thought!

I wasn’t sure if the ending (and the scene with Su-Jin holding on to him in bed) was a hint to the viewer that she WOULD not let him go in the first place, that her love would always be calling him back.

I suppose a part of me wanted him to be fully healed by the end of the drama. It seemed a kind of self-imposed self-loathing that bothered me. I don’t want him to prove anything more. Some self-healing we have to do on our own and other self-healing we have to learn to live with others and to accept the love they are giving us even if we feel we don’t deserve it. So it seemed to me that the screenwriter didn’t want to give us a happy ending — which might be something s/he wants to do to challenge folks who like unrealistic endings. And maybe s/he’s right…maybe the childish desire for a QUICKIE happy ending should be challenged. BUT I didn’t want Tae-San to be alone anymore. I didn’t want Su-Jin to be alone anymore. I didn’t want the time extension to intrude on the family coming together.

I also feel that the problem of the wounding mother was not dealt with. That REALLY bothered me. Tae-San kinda sorta “understood” that perhaps his dad “had to leave him” for some higher safer purpose. And I guess by implication that…his dad loved him and his mom just didn’t understand.

Trouble though is that Tae-San didn’t know his father so that realization does nothing for me, even if it does something for the character. I know it’s a story about fathers and sons but the lack of dealing with the loss/abandonment of a good/bad mother was too much for me. Perhaps if –in an ideal fictional dramaworld– the screenwriter had somehow healed Tae-San of the wound caused by his mother by explaining that Mom was killed or depressed, then Tae-San might have stayed.

So a part of me is saying that that lack of explanation about the mom is “the missing scene” and kind of the elephant in the room. Is the screenwriter aware that the scene is missing? Of course. Is she aware that it is still bothering Tae-San? Why doesn’t she tie up all his wounds in one pretty little bow for wimpy viewers like me? Because of some perverse desire to be realistic.

Plus… i know we live in a world of divorce etc but it seems to me that the wholeness of the family is important if one has had a whole family. Tae-San’s willingness/guilt-struck desire to leave his daughter (even if he’ll be around for her birthday, school events, etc) bugged the crap outta me. He said she and In Hye are used to not having him around and he needs time but some old-fashioned part of me thinks, “Good Lord, man, a girl needs her father around every day!!”

So that’s why I say the ending has bitterness in it for me. It feels real but the entire story was not real so why stick me with reality at the end?

Thanks for replying Carole.

It just dawned on me how many versions/aspects of the parent/child relationship we witnessed or were mentioned in Two Weeks.

1) Su-jin and her parents In-Hye & Tae-San (8 years)
2) Tae-San and his mother’s suicide
3) In-Hye’ separation from her parents (overseas)
4) Jae-Kyung and her father (witnessing his murder/death)
5) Seung-Woo and his father (both parents mentioned)
6) Seo-Hee and her autistic child Kim Sung-Joon
7) Han Chi-Kook and his kidnapped son Killer Kim
8) Moon Il-Seok foster parent/authority figure to Killer Kim
9) Ko Man-Seok orphaned friend of Tae-San

Literally similar to the Kevin Bacon 6 degrees of separation game.

Overall, this has been an awesome ride. Honestly, I think that it's always hard to write the ending to a story. I can't count how many dramas I've watched that I enjoyed in the beginning but end up hating the last part and cursing myself for investing 16 hours of my life for such ending.

I'm just happy that Tae San is alive. lol. Also, the ending is realistic. I understand how Tae San wants time to make himself a better person. He's right. Two weeks is a short time to be forgiven for eight years of pain he cause In Hye and Soojin. Since we got an open-ended ending (that sounds weird), I can imagine other ends to this and I'm satisfied with it.

I love that part where Moon Il Seok's corn gets stollen! I totally laughed out loud when I saw it. It is silly but best revenge ever. In his face! I also liked the trace of emotion on assassin's face. It makes me feel hopeful for his future with Dad.

The thing that really strikes me though is the scene with Jae Kyung and Mi Sook. I really believe that they have a thing between them, like an unspoken relationship that only the two of them understands. It kinda explains Jae Kyung's reaction to Mi Sook's death and how Mi Sook entrusts her life to Jae Kyung. It's something deep and beautiful and that scene just melted my heart.

Ahhhh, Seung Woo.

I really loved the drama. I do feel a bit of a disappointment that it didn't get enough recognition with regards to ratings but awesome job from the whole Two Weeks staff! Actors were great and believable. Writer-nim I love you. I follow your next projects!

Thank you for the recaps from Episode 1 to the last episode. You are awesome, javabeans and girlfriday! <3

I always thought there was a little something more to the relationship between MS and JK, Im glad someone else saw it too. The show is ambiguous as to what kind of bond it is, I personally saw it as possibly leaning romantic. Though whether it was a deep and special friendship or something more there was definitely an unspoken bond between them.

I LOVE that this show put more emphasis on the daughter-father relationship.

Tae-san's growth as a character throughout the show was just amazing. 'Nuff said.

And I feel terrible for Seung-woo. I hope he can still see Su-jin from time to time because his love for her (and In-hye) was very much real.

Also, how much do I love seeing Tae-san in suits? Given that he was wearing garb like most of the show, it was such a nice change.

Gah, well done, show. Well done. :)

I, too, would have really wanted a family reunion, but the ending did satisfy me. Two Weeks in fact is such a short time to really put things together, but the fact still remains that IH and TS still love each other. And what SJ really wants is her family together. That is why SW gave in, knowing he has no place at all especially knowing all of their feelings.

I'm gonna miss this drama. LJK really is good and best dad-daughter pairing.

Thanks for the recaps!

Just goes to show that a good ending makes all the difference :) . I had my doubts about whether there was enough emotional conflict left to carry the finale, but it was a really satisfying victory over the baddies and the family's interactions were sweet and heart wrenching. Seung-woo and Jae-kyung's little beats were also surprisingly touching. Love the imagery of the board wiped clean, for Jae-kyung but all the other characters as well. The end of this story was a new beginning. I think this thriller lost some thrilling in the last few episodes, but it made up for it with heart-warming. Truly lovely!

I am SOOOO happy now! (Although I still have to watch the show with subs, only saw it raw and read your recap - Thank you for doing this work, the recaps were awesome!)

So many Kdramas come up with a weird or forced ending, but this finale is perfect. Writer-nim told us a consistent story and gave us a believable end. During the last 30 minutes or so all I could do was grin as I was in dire need for some happy time for Tae-san.

The baddies are caught (the first 20 min. of this ep are a little clumsy, but I really don't care - we've seen far worse) and all the good guys survive. Yay!

Tae-san - Lee Jun-ki, I love you! You and your The King and The Clown started my addiction for Korean movies and dramas and this show cemented your place as my #1 Korean actor. The first real daddy-daughter reunion in ep 14 will forever be in my heart as one of the best scenes in a Kdrama ever. Scenes like that can tilt so easily into cheesy crap, but you and Lee Chae-mi managed to make everything right.
The development of Tae-san's character was so satisfying to watch, he got his redemption and we all know, that he will very soon become a true family with his two women, because we already hear his loving daughter call out for him in the end. She will never let him go and she, determined as she is, will make sure, that the sun returns to the mountain for good.

Also I loved, that the writer refrained from coming up with one of the baddies as Tae-san's dad or any other unlikely relation.

Seung-woo - you are alive! My biggest fear was, that they'd kill you off, but thankfully they gave us a happy ending. I'm just glad you survived, you'll find a good woman, that truly loves you, because you deserve it.
Ryu Soo-young - you are my second favorite actor, because your performances are always on the spot and solid. Aside from that you tweet the cutest tweets (lots of food and flowers - lol) and are one seriously good looking and very hot guy. Sorry, for being shallow, but it had to be said. Again.
I'm happy I'll be able to see you on a weekly basis in Real Man.

In addition I loved the whole cast of this show. They cast perfect baddies, a great assassin, very attractive prosecutors (Eom Hyo-seop and Yoon Hee-seok) as well as the utterly beautiful Kim So-yeon (whose part, btw, gave me a strong lesbian vibe, esp. during the last scene in her flat), the cutest girl of the world and last but not least Park Ha-sun, who came a long way from being the worried, a little boring mom next to the sick bed to being a badass, brave and gutsy lady, who will get her man.

I am so glad LJK chose this part and not the now halted Age of Feeling, because we were able to see him displaying so many different emotions, a little action but most of all lots of fatherly love. I will miss him dearly and hope he'll return to our screen very soon.

The ratings of TW were mediocre, but it only proofs, that in general qaulity is not what the masses are looking for. They want a certain kind of entertainment and thrill, which Master's Sun delivers, although its writing is lacking.

Two Weeks is next to Nine the best show of 2013 for me. Thank you for this entertaining ride.

I think intentional. I felt it in the beginning of the show, too. They were very close, that's why she chose Mi-sook as a bait and that's why she so strongly reacted to her death and provoked the accident that put Tae-san on the run.

It's telling, that she fantasizes about Mi-sook in an everyday couply scene when finally everything is over.

Good, solid ending to a good, solid drama.

There were definitely times in this episode and the drama overall where you had to turn your logical brain off, but the drama hit almost every right note on the emotional beats.

I'm not a big fan of the "I need to be away for now to become the man that deserves you gals," but if In-Hye accepts it and Su-Jin gets to see him when she wants him, then, I guess I'm ok with it.

Overall, loved the roller-coaster ride of emotions and loved the redemption theme around all the characters from Tae-San, Jae-Kyung, and Seung-Woo all the way to Mole Cop, Boss Han, Killer Kim and even Congresswoman Jo (though she didn't seem to contemplate how to redeem herself much)....

A great theme overall, in that it tells us that we only have from today on to redeem and live the rest of our lives, and we have that choice to do the best we can whether it's because we found our family, realized our faults, or just got caught.

How we deal with those chances for redemption now is what's most important.

Re Turning off the logical mind:
2 questions have been at the back of my mind all this time:
1. Can you really support yourself and raise a child on the income from working at a tiny pizzeria? If so, no parent would ever have to make sure their child study or graduate college.
2. Who is paying for Sujinnie exorbitant hospital bill?

Required fields are marked *

House is a medical show that deals with unusual ailments ep after ep. Sb is paying for the hosp bills is a given.

But here IH is shown to have only 30000 won in her wallet when she was mugged, and she had to pick up the smashed up apples for eating, plus she didn't have enough money to take a cab late at night, and was planning to stay in the dance studio for 2 weeks when it was illegal and had no heating. So we know she is short on cash. Would she have the money to buy medical insurance for Sujin? Ppl who live from hand to mouth tend not to have insurance.

She may be a 'manager', but it is over exactly one other employee, minimum pay, most likely, in a 2-table pizzeria, so yes, I worry about her bills!

The time IH was mugged was probably the early years before she got a stable job. It must have taken her at least a few more years after that to work up to a managerial position, and better pay.

Re Soo-Jin's hospital bill, I think the Korean healthcare system covers most of it. Since IH has a job, the premium is deducted from her salary with her employer co-paying half. Soo-Jin's bill is also unlikely to be exhorbitant, because don't forget, Boss Moon is sponsoring her ward!

Thank god, it's such a satisfying ending.
What I like the most about this story--beside the father-daughter duo--is how the characters are written with such consistency. It's also nice to see a drama where the second lead doesn't turn bitter or awful because he's blinded by jealousy. Imo, it's easier to kill of the second lead to give the otp justification to be together. But instead of taking that route, this drama acknowledges that there's an issue and has the characters dealt with it like an adult supposed to be. The resolution is as realistic as we can get and makes us sympathize with them even more.

Lastly... Seung-woo...*sigh*.. Where can I get a man like him, WHERE??!!!!

Two Weeks had its share of flaws, but I'm willing to overlook most of them because overall, it was both a darned good ride and an emotionally gratifying journey. I love stories about how unexpected relationships can catalyze the fast-tracking of our personal growth. And when the unexpected relationship comes in the form of a heart-stealing daddy-daughter duo like Tae San and Su Jinnie, well, I become a lot less picky about plot holes and logic fails. I think it's a shame that this drama wasn't more popular.

LOVED the petty but poetic justice of MIS getting his corn stolen! However, I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see the netizens' ire when they found out about Jo Seo Hee's secret mansion.

This was the best acting I've seen from Kim So Yeon. She tends to be too cutesy and/or aloof for me, and I thought her acting was pretty abysmal in the little I watched of The Great Seer, so I was pleasantly surprised to see her not holding back here. Seung Woo was a great role for Ryu Soo Young-- he got to show off both his tough badass and his adorable teddy-bear sides.

Last, but not least~ many thanks to GF and JB for once again volunteering to be our intrepid guides on another roller-coaster ride. I don't think I would have had the courage to watch it in real time without you and the other Beanies keeping me company.

Many Kim So Yeon's dramas better than this ex. All About Eve , IRIS (Best of the best) , Prosecutor Princess , Dr.champ. Honesty, I'm quite disappoint her role in 2 Weeks because I've got high expectations while she collaborate with same writer of Prosecutor Princess, one of may favorite drama. But writer didn't give her good enough role. She was neither first lead and supporting lead. Very lack screen time with lead guy.

I couldn't STAND Prosecutor Princess. It was hard to buy KSY as a flaky princess who finally grew up to have substance. She doesn't do cute very well. Fierce, yes. Loved her in Iris. I haven't yet managed to finish All About Eve, because she's much too fierce in that one.

I thought she had quite a lot of screen time. I expected a lot less, especially since she wasn't the love interest. Given Koreans' privileging of the romantic coupling, this drama was unusual in the amount of screen time it gave to the non-romantic duo. It was a good role for KSY. She got to show off many facets of her.

And ultimately, this was an LJK vehicle. Doesn't the last shot say it all?

The acting skills (comedy/action/drama) and diversity of female characters that Kim So Yeon has continually delivered to audiences in All About Eve, IRIS, Prosecutor Princess, and 2 Weeks is awesome.

In my opinion, she is a very underated actress and deserves more opportunities to showcase her acting talents in diverse and strong female roles.

Kudos to Kim So Yeon that she is willing to accept and portray characters regardless of whether it is a lead or secondary character.
