Three Days: Episode 6

Following the climactic events of Episode 5, this episode feels like a sort of new beginning for the series. The president has been found and a bad guy defeated, but we’ve only scratched the surface, with plenty of questions yet to be answered. Although it’s heading in new directions, Three Days continues to be an action-packed hour that resists all attempts to predict its course.

EPISODE 6 RECAP

March 7, 5:30 AM. 33 hours, 30 minutes after the sniping.

Cha-young is investigating the tennis court gates at the presidential villa. If the sniper was stationed inside the villa, the gate had to be open to allow a clear shot. But in her interrogation at the end of Episode 5, Cha-young was told that the gates were closed at the time of the shooting.

She times herself running from the gate to the office. Seven minutes. Even if Ham could have made it in 5 minutes, it still wouldn’t be fast enough. The blackout and the shooting were almost simultaneous. There’s only one possible answer: Ham had an accomplice at the tennis court gate — someone else from inside the Secret Service.

Meanwhile, President Lee is just leaving his meeting at the hotel, escorted by his usual entourage. He has some instructions for Secretary Shin regarding the investigation into the shooting. NIS and the police should be excluded. Shin should use only people they can trust from the Prosecutor’s Office for the investigation team.

As Cha-young frantically tries to call someone to tell them what she’s figured out, Secretary Shin checks his phone: no signal. He keeps forgetting that cell phones don’t get reception around the president. (That’s some fancy tech, but what purpose does it serve?)

Over at Team Leader Ham’s apartment, Tae-kyung is having the same problem as Cha-young. Someone better answer their phone soon, because Tae-kyung seems to have identified the accomplice. Agent Hwang Yoon-jae is in the old photo of Ham and his army buddies and — uh-oh — he’s on an elevator with the president right now.

A quick series of flashbacks reveal that Agent Hwang was there for the incident at Yangjinri in 1998. Evidently, Team Leader Ham was not the only survivor of the restaurant shoot-out.

In the elevator, Agent Hwang touches his sidearm, eyeing the president. A voice comes over the radio: the elevator is malfunctioning and will have to stop at the third floor. Hwang senses that something is not right.

Out go the lights, and it’s now or never. Hwang opens fire on the president, but the other agents instantly form a wall between the rogue agent and his victim. He manages to take down a couple agents before finding himself pinned to the floor.

The elevator doors open and the president is rushed to safety. Hwang screams, “I have to kill him!” He’s so desperate and determined, I almost feel bad for him. But not quite.

In the conference room, Chairman Kim and company are disappointed to hear that Agent Hwang was unsuccessful. They hope he’ll be able to keep his mouth shut. If he realizes they’ve been using him, all bets are off.

Tae-kyung gets a phone call commending him on helping to stop Agent Hwang. (I knew that elevator malfunction was no coincidence.) He spots some papers hiding under Ham’s bookcase. On closer inspection, it’s none other than that infamous document, Confidential 98.

The sun rises on a nation in chaos. President Lee’s implication in the Yangjinri incident has everyone in an uproar. As the presidential motorcade returns to the Blue House, protesters are lining up outside. They surround the president’s car, pounding their fists on the windows until finally being subdued by security.

The Blue House staff greets the president and begins spinning options for damage control. Against their advice, the president wants to call a press conference immediately.

At the emergency press conference, Secretary Shin deflects questions about the Yangjinri allegations. There will be a thorough investigation into the matter and the results of the investigation will be made available to the public unconditionally.

Shin goes on to announce the details of the assassination attempt at Cheongsoodae. This new, juicy story succeeds at turning the press’s attention away from the Yangjinri revelations.

Alone in his office, the president remembers a confrontation with Chairman Kim years ago. The news has just broken about the death toll at Yangjinri and the future president is in a rage, throwing Kim around the office. Kim explains what went wrong: The North Korean submarine malfunctioned and had to dock. Both sides began firing out of fear. Kim can’t be held responsible for that, right?

Lee intends to turn himself in to the authorities and recommends that Kim either do the same or throw himself out a window. Kim comes up with a third alternative. If he really wants to make things right, Lee ought to become president. “Take the Blue House,” Kim tells him, “and change the future.” And wouldn’t you know it, Lee seems intrigued by the idea.

Back in the present, President Lee vows to himself that he will fix his past mistake. His private moment is interrupted by a knock at the door. Secretary Shin is ready to announce the lineup for the special investigation team. The team will be led by Prosecutor Gu Ja-gwang. He will be joined by representatives from the police department, security department, Secret Service, and the Blue House.

As the investigation unit assembles, we see that Cha-young is among them. The team has decided that determining the source of the EMP is their primary objective.

Chairman Kim’s cronies are furious when they find out that none of their people have been included on the investigation team. They just have to trust that Team Leader Ham and Agent Hwang will be given all the blame. Kim warns them that the investigators must not be allowed to discover the true source of the EMP bomb.

That may be easier said than done, because Cha-young has an ace up her sleeve. She tells the team that she knows of an eyewitness to the EMP blast — Officer Yoon Bo-won.

But Bo-won is busy with her own investigation. She gets a phone call from an eyewitness to the accident that killed Tae-kyung’s father. She takes down the caller’s address and hurries off the meet with him.

But perhaps she’d better take her time, because something about the guy on the other end of that call doesn’t sit right with me. Maybe it’s the lizard tattoo on his hand. Or maybe it’s the photo of Tae-kyung’s father posted on the wall behind him. And we certainly can’t ignore the fact that the phone call is being overseen by the assassin we last saw on the train in Episode 4. (It looks like he’s upgraded to contact lenses, because the thick frames are gone.)

Cha-young and Prosecutor Choi arrive at the same time to take Agent Hwang in for questioning. She reminds Choi that the special investigation gets first dibs.

But they’re not the only ones looking for answers. Tae-kyung comes barreling down the hall, shoving past the officers at the interrogation room door and locking himself inside with Hwang.

Tae-kyung demands to know who gave the Confidential 98 document to Team Leader Ham. Were they trying to get him to kill the president? Hwang refuses to answer, and suggests that Tae-kyung is just trying to deny the veracity of Confidential 98 because it implicates his father. But it’s deeper than that for Tae-kyung. He thought he was in the right when he killed Ham. But if Ham was just being used by someone else, then what did he really do?

Korea’s slowest police officer finally stumbles his way down the hall with the keys to the interrogation room. The officers burst into the room and separate the two. Cha-young leaves with Agent Hwang despite Tae-kyung’s plea for help. The officers try to drag Tae-kyung away, but he easily slips out of their butterfingers and is on the run again.

Outside, Cha-young and Agent Hwang are besieged by a mob of protesters and reporters looking for answers. Tae-kyung looks on and thinks back to his training. In a crowd of people, he was taught to always watch the hands. If someone is going to reach for a weapon or set off a bomb, it always starts with a movement of the hand.

Tae-kyung works his way into the mob, scanning the hands. He sees exactly what he feared — a masked man in the crowd pulls a knife. He shouts to Cha-young for help but neither of them is able to shove through the mass of people.

The crowd utters a collective gasp, parting to reveal Hwang with a gaping wound in his neck. Tae-kyung cries out for help, but it’s too late. Within moments, Agent Hwang is dead on the pavement, along with our hero’s best chance at finding out who’s pulling the strings.

The masked murderer, meanwhile, has slipped into an alleyway. The distinctive lizard tattoo on his hand identifies him as the phony eyewitness Bo-won spoke to. He makes a call on his cell phone: “Target eliminated.”

On the other end of the phone, his assassin buddy prepares to fulfill his part of the plan. It should be finished shortly; Bo-won has just arrived.

Tae-kyung has a sickening realization. Someone is killing all the witnesses. That means Bo-won is in danger. Cha-young phones Bo-won’s station and learns that she left over an hour ago to meet with a witness. Tae-kyung and Cha-young share the same thought: it’s a trap!

Bo-won is at the Grand Mall looking for the location of the meet-up. She bumps into a mall employee (literally) who helps her find the place: a vacant department store, empty except for rows of naked mannequins staring at her — creeeepy. As she walks through the store, the assassin watches her from behind the mannequins.

Help is on the way as Tae-kyung and Cha-young race into the mall. How did they know where to go? The Grand Mall is a big place, so they split up to search for Bo-won. (Please hurry!)

Bo-won senses the assassin behind her. She carefully unholsters her gun, then whirls around quickly to surprise him. But he’s quicker on the draw and fires straight into her chest, knocking her flat on the ground, reeling in pain. This is no flesh wound. Did we just lose our Bo-won?

The assassin takes aim for another shot, but before he can pull the trigger the elevator door opens. Tae-kyung has arrived and the fight is on. He full-body tackles the assassin, and together they go sailing through a plate glass window, crashing down to a lower level of the store.

With the gun flung out of reach, they come at each other with fists flying. Tae-kyung quickly gains the upper hand, and grips the assassin by the throat to ask, “Who ordered you to kill my father?”

Cha-young has caught up to them by now. She calls out to Tae-kyung and the momentary distraction is all the assassin needs to break free with a roundhouse kick to Tae-kyung’s face. Cha-young fires at the assassin, but he manages to escape. It’s only after he’s gone that Tae-kyung remembers Bo-won. He hurries to help her, but she’s unresponsive.

Cha-young pursues the assassin to the parking garage where Lizard Hand is waiting for him in a getaway car. As they speed away, he calls Chairman Kim with the good news.

With that settled, Chairman Kim is happy to return to business as usual and heads into a meeting with the board of directors at the Jaesin Company. (That was the name on the truck of doom that killed Tae-kyung’s father, and also the name of the hotel where the secret meetings were held.)

Secretary Shin has arrived at the mall to admonish Cha-young for not protecting Bo-won. Flashback to Tae-kyung and Cha-young realizing that Bo-won has been lured into a trap. What we didn’t see the first time around is Tae-kyung receiving a voice mail from Bo-won. She’s also suspicious of the alleged eyewitness, but sees an opportunity to catch a criminal. She asks him to meet her at the Grand Mall right away.

So what happened to Bo-won, Secretary Shin wants to know. Cha-young tells him that Bo-won… is fine.

Another flashback. Tae-kyung hurries to help the unconscious Bo-won. Bo-won’s eyes open and she unzips her jacket to reveal the bullet stopped by her kevlar vest. Tae-kyung and I breathe a sigh of relief.

Her ribs aching from the gunshot, Bo-won is taken in for questioning with Prosecutor Gu. She describes the EMP bomb, which had a name written on it with the initials F and O. He shows her the logo for a company called Force One and Bo-won confirms that that’s what she saw. Goo explains that Force One is the military weapons laboratory at the Jaesin Company.

Under Prosecutor Gu’s orders, the special investigation team enters Force One with a search warrant and begins seizing documents and computers.

Elsewhere, Prosecutor Choi and a member of his staff are thinking over the events of the past few days. Agent Hwang’s murder is just the latest death related to the Yangjinri incident. Could it be that someone, maybe even President Lee, is trying to get rid of anyone connected to the event?

Prosecutor Choi is reminded of Tae-kyung’s words from their meeting on the train: “My father died because of Confidential 98.”

Back at the special investigation’s headquarters, the results of the Force One search reveal that the company has built 15 EMPs and four of them are missing. A four-EMP blast would be consistent with the scale of the power outage at Cheongsoodae. But how did Team Leader Ham acquire them?

Chairman Kim receives word that the CEO of Force One is to be questioned. His instructions are for the CEO to comply. “Tell them everything,” he says, as he idly cuts the arm off a plastic soldier.

Secretary Shin tells President Lee he’s confident that they will discover who Ham was working for. But the president seems to have a different endgame in mind. Once they have the criminals cornered, they offer a way out. That way the president can get what he really wants from them. And what might that be? Let the speculation begin!

Chairman Kim takes a call from Joint Chief of Staff Kwon Jae-yeon. As the one who got Ham and Hwang involved, he’s worried he’ll be the one who goes down when the CEO talks. Chairman Kim asks for his trust, while slashing the toy soldier’s throat with an X-Acto knife. Chief Kwon nervously eyes a bloody copy of Confidential 98. Who here doesn’t think it’s the copy that was removed from the car accident?

Bo-won wakes up in the hospital with fractured ribs from the gunshot. Tae-kyung is by her bedside. He returns her car keys, saying that they saved her life.

Flashback to the Grand Mall. When Bo-won is knocked down by the mall employee, she drops her keychain. Later, Tae-kyung finds it, a crucial clue to finding her.

Back to present. Bo-won asks why Tae-kyung is there. “Witness protection,” he tells her. She tells him to go rest, acknowledging the difficult few days he’s had. She’s heard that another sunbae of his died today. “So don’t you die,” he says and, in an uncharacteristically tender gesture, puts a glass of water in her hand.

On his way out of the hospital, Tae-kyung runs into Prosecutor Choi. Choi wants to know why Tae-kyung thinks his father’s death is connected to Confidential 98.

Flashback to the meeting with Tae-kyung’s father that Choi spoke of in Episode 4. Dad asks Choi to postpone announcing the results of his investigation because the documents he has are false. Choi refuses to listen to him and accuses him of tampering with the investigation.

Back to present. Prosecutor Choi has compared his own copy of Confidential 98 to the copy Tae-kyung left in Agent Hwang’s interrogation room. They’re identical. Tae-kyung tells him about the copy of the document that went missing from his father’s accident. If it’s the same as the others, why would someone kill to get their hands on it?

At his interrogation, the CEO of Force One tells investigators that the missing EMPs were stolen en route to a field test. The ultimate authority at the testing site was Joint Chief of Staff Kwon.

Tae-kyung hopes Prosecutor Choi will reexamine the Yangjinri case, but Choi has no reason not to trust the version of Confidential 98 he received from Chief Kwon.

Indeed, a flashback confirms that Kwon is the one who supplied the document. Choi explains that Kwon was a commander of Team Leader Ham’s army brigade that was killed at Yangjinri, and he had been performing his own investigation into the incident.

Cha-young has also discovered the connection between Team Leader Ham and Chief Kwon. It’s beginning to look like Ham, Kwon, and Hwang learned of the president’s wrongdoing and conspired to steal the EMPs. Time to talk to Chief Kwon.

Tae-kyung is on his way to see Kwon as well. He imagines Kwon providing Team Leader Ham with the phony Confidential 98. He’s the perfect person to do it, someone Ham would trust completely. Tae-kyung must ask Kwon about his father’s death.

As Tae-kyung approaches Kwon’s enormous building, the assassin duo pull up outside. They are to eliminate their target and destroy the original Confidential 98.

Kwon’s doorbell rings. Who’s there? Cha-young, Tae-kyung, or the assassins? “Are you from the Blue House?” Kwon asks the person at the door.

Cha-young arrives outside just in time to see Joint Chief of Staff Kwon thrown from his window, landing on a parked car below. He’s all kinds of dead.

Upstairs, Cha-young finds Kwon’s door ajar and cautiously enters. She finds a man standing by the open window.

She points her gun at his back and orders him to turn around. It’s Tae-kyung.

March 8, 5:20AM. 57 hours, 20 minutes after the sniping.

COMMENTS

While this episode had some thrilling moments, it was definitely a cool down after the excitement of Episode 5. I’m sensing that the previous episode was the climax of Three Days: Chapter One and the writer is using this episode to begin Three Days: Chapter Two. The transition was a little bumpy, but I’m hopeful that we’re just setting the stage for a thrilling second act. Should we consider the first five episodes a prologue to the real story? Or will Three Days continue to change direction every few episodes? Only time will tell.

You can feel a major gear shift happening as the driving action of the series changes. Our characters are no longer looking for the president. Now they’re trying to find out who’s behind the assassination attempt. The central mystery about Yangjinri, however, continues.

Team Leader Ham, our primary villain thus far, is gone. But there are bigger, scarier villains still to be confronted. Is Chairman Kim as bad as it gets? I’m not ready to place my bets yet. I don’t want to look like a fool when we find out that the real puppet master was Bo-won all along.

The writer continues her device of having multiple characters doing the same exact thing at the same exact time. Like when three different people come to interrogate Agent Hwang. Or when three different people are headed for Chief Kwon’s apartment. I’ll continue to suspend my disbelief… for now.

The densely layered plotting that I praised in Episode 4 began to feel gimmicky in this episode. Before, we were getting big payoffs that were inextricably tied into the narrative. Now they feel like extraneous afterthoughts. For example, finding out that the president was in the bus accident we had learned of several episodes earlier was a bit of a thrill. Finding out that Bo-won had dropped her keys a few scenes ago and Tae-kyung picked them up felt like a weak imitation of that thrill. “These keys saved your life”? Really?

The shocking keychain reveal aside, that scene in the hospital room was one of my favorite in the episode. In an episode that generally forgot to give me reasons to care, the discovery of Tae-kyung waiting at her bedside was a much needed jolt to the heart. I admire the restraint the writer is showing as their relationship develops. I honestly can’t tell for sure if she’s inching them toward romance, or just building a strong platonic bond. Thoughts?

Very nice after thoughts. This is one drama I have to hold my judgement or afterthoughts. I'm going around in circles and can't make a decision. All i'm saying is that I am enjoying the ride, because it's just a great study w/out tall the cliche romance.

If this is the start of Three Days: Chapter 2 then I wouldn't worry just yet because with the way how Three Days: Chapter 1 started Episodes 1 and 2 that led us to that breathtaking Episode 5.. I am all sorts of hopeful that we are going to see later another awesome and emotional showdown and pay-offs.

Jang Hyun-sung was so compelling in his Episode 5 performance but am glad that despite loosing him, we are given Choi Won-young to be the next brewing villain.. who is all sorts of creepy,, his smirks and confidence is making me wonder what's up his sleeves..is he just crazy? or he has a legit bigger plan than that little plan of killing the witnesses..

I like the hospital scene too.. in one of the interview I read somewhere on twitter (probably Singles), the writer approached Yoochun on what he thinks about romance for his character.. he said he is not sure if there will be since he didn't thought about that when he signed up for the show.. but i dont mind if they make the romance just implied in the story and not get highlighted.. HTK has so many in his hands right now it'll not be believable to develop love.. although at this point i see Bowon's character oogling and crushing on him ..

Okay, while I think a lot of the supposed logical inconsistencies in this story are understandable, sending Hwang out of that building in the open, where he could be easily silenced or lynched was HOWLINGLY, HOWLINGLY STUPID, STUPID, STUPID! Both within the story and as a plot development.

That said, the writer seems to be keeping her act together otherwise, although the director made a number couple of minor fumbles. It was incredibly obvious, for instance, that Moon Balloon had gone into the ambush wearing body armor, so dragging the scene out to increase the tension was pointless.

It would have been much cooler if, when Tae-kyung bent over her on the floor, Ba-Woon opened one eye and whispered: "Is he gone yet?"

Also, even it isn't possible to investigate ALL of the tall, fit, grim-faced men in Korea with caps crammed down to mask their faces, can this "elite team" at least question all the tall, fit, grim-faced men with caps crammed down to mask their faces who are ALSO wearing sinister eye shadow? Because I'm sure they are all assassins, spies, and criminal henchmen.

I remember watching Ghost, and felt the leads were inching towards having a romantic relationship because there were subtle but solid hints towards that... but it honestly went nowhere. So I don't expect the writer to build any romance between Bo-won and Tae-kyung but she'll probably tease us along the way.

I surely hope otherwise since the obvious plot-holes aren't keeping me invested but romance surely will. I'm easy like that :P

Thank you for the recap! I do like this drama, even though it leaves me confused at times. This drama continues to remind me of City Hunter, in that the President did a bad deed in his past (with a group of men), however he seems to be the only one who ended up having a conscience (and having some regrets) about it. I do like that the President knows how those men think, and that he himself seems to have something up his sleeves, to bait them. It does make for a more interesting drama that way. The suspense continues to be amped, with the main witnesses to the incident being killed, and BW’s life still being on the line. I am looking forward to what next week has in store.

I was a little concerned, when it seemed that BW went alone to that meeting (and I was suspicious as well, when she was asked to go), and was therefore relieved to find out that she had called TK to let him know of her whereabouts. I also do like that TK thinks fast, and that CY continues to cooperate with him. At first, when I saw BW go down (after she was shot), I did think that she was dead, or badly wounded. I had to remind myself that she is the heroine, so she can’t die this early in the drama (or die at all). Smart girl, had a bullet proof vest.

I liked the scene where TK was guarding BW, in her room. This drama is also described as romantic (among its genres), and not that I think that romance is necessary, however, since it is one of the genres, I wonder a little bit when we will start to see TK fall for BW. TK looked a little uncomfortable, when BW woke up and was talking to him. That made me smile. TK in love, now I am curious about what he would look like and act like.

I think I wanted to hold on to HKJ being a totally good guy (maybe it is his face that made me feel that way), and now, I understand better TK’s turmoil and myriad of feelings. When TK was caught yet again at the end of the ep., I couldn’t help but think, “again? How many times will he get ‘caught’ before this drama is over?”. I find it interesting how, when it looks like it would be a good time for TK to walk away (from his job, which he seemed to want to do, in ep. 5), information keeps coming up that pulls him back in.

I am loving the actor who was in Heirs in this drama (I can remember his name right now). He is doing a really good job being the villain. It’s nice to see that side of him. On a different note, does anyone know the song that is played at the very end of the ep.? It has rap lyrics in it. I can’t find it on YT yet. Thank you!

Hello soserious,

I am glad this drama makes you think of CH as well. For me, it was even more striking when they would have their meetings (the one 16 years ago, and the one this month and this year). The men in CH had a meeting as well where they were sitting down. And then, when Prdt LDW had his own meeting in that house (that was burned down), the men were standing (before they each left. There was that scene). With Prdt LDW, it wasn't the same men (of course), who were (necessarily) plotting bad things for the country (though I am not sure that we fully know yet what their plans were. Either that, or as I said earlier, I am still a little confused about a few things).

So, soserious, even though here the lighting is different than the one in CH (some shades of blue, a lot of the time), there are scenes that just take me back to CH, when I see them here. And (yes), we also know that the Prdt here is a little different than the one in CH, in that Prdt LDW is plotting something as well, and he is not taking what is coming to him sitting down or laying down (which I am loving, to be honest), AND Prdt LDW knows how the "boss" of the bad guys think (which I am also loving :-) ).

I cannot draw the comparison with Two Weeks (unfortunately), simply because I haven't seen Two Weeks yet. A beanie recommended (last week) that I watch it, she said she thought I would like it. I have read many references made to Two Weeks so far, regarding this drama.

Hey average robot! Thanks for recap. Your question of whether it is budding romance or just plain budding buddies between Tae Kyung and Bo Won ... don't forget that all this is taking place over a period of three days. But nothin like dangling the possibility of romance to reel in the viewers!

The possible romance reminds me of the Speed movies. They fell in love over the course of a day because of experiencing the stressful situation together. I'm one of the viewers who look for love in every story.

I mentioned once before the series aired that the two leads reminded me of the male and female leads in John Woo's 'Broken Arrow.' At the end of that frantic, two-day long chase, John Travolta died and the leads, an air force major and a female park ranger, walked up to each other and shook hands instead of kissing.

As John Woo said himself, that was the ending that made sense. There wasn't time for a romance and it wasn't the place for it.

A great episode, though not as good as episode 5. But, I enjoyed it. I also liked the hospital scene between Bo-won and Tae-kyung. Very sweet, but not overly romantic.

Looking forward to next week's episodes. Thanks for the recap!

My brother and I both went "aww" at the hospital scene. We have decided that we don't want a full-on I'm-passionately-in-love-with-you romance, but a slow burn of now-that-the-crazy-is-over-let's-see-what-we've-got would be great.

I'm going to miss Agent Hwang! :'(
I think it's my first time seeing him in a drama but he sure is talented. That scene when he is held down in the elevator was powerful, it makes you wish he had succeeded in killing the president.

That was a sad way for him to go. Someone just tried to kill the president and you allow journalists and protesters to get close to him? His death is either a result of screenwriting failure or unknown evil guys still hiding and plotting.

Some of the previous commenters have mentionned Ghost to look for clues. If Three Days follows the same pattern, I believe there are some bad guys that still haven't been revealed . My money is on one of the prosecutor's helpers (the angry one looks suspicious but then again everyone does in this drama) and Secretary Shin. I'm sure this guy has some secret agenda like finding the truth about 1998 and then using it to blackmail people to his own advantage.

Thanks for the recap averagerobot! You definitely engage us and point out different angles to ponder over.

Also, one of my favorite scenes in this episode was of Han Tae-Kyung and Yoon Bo-Won in the hospital room.

Lee Cha-Young (So E-Hyu) seems set up as the Johnny-come-lately character whenever action happens or key elements of information are revealed in the story.

I have reached my quota (my cup is filled) of utterly incompetent keystone cops from Who Are You? Now to see signs of So E-Hyu arriving to the scene and having the same reactions and facial expressions is simply exasperating.

I dread having to experience 16 episodes of this again. Of course if it's intentional by the writer because Lee Cha-Young has yet to be revealed as another villian then that's another story.

so far, the show has been mixed for me. at one moment, i would like it and then at another moment, i wouldn't care much about it.

i'm not that favorable to how the show is shot in terms of lighting. i know this is incredibly minor but sometimes, it kind of accentuates the skin flaws of some actors...and it bothers me?

otherwise, i'm loving BW and TK's relationship. they are great together and i hope their feelings grow (platonic or romantic, doesn't matter!).

I have not agreed with every point of analysis you have made averagerobot, which I am sure is OK, since not everybody can agree on everything, though I appreciate the different points of view. I, as well, do like your writing style. Thank you for being detailed, and for bringing up past episodes the way you do, to tie in the plot points. It helps in following the story along (its logic, and lack of logic, when that happens/will happen), and I personally appreciate that.

If I have forgotten in what episode or in what scene something happened, you give us a reference for it, and I can go back to that recap or go rewatch that scene to refresh my memory. It probably takes some digging and/or some going back to the previous recaps or a rewatching of a past episode (or some parts of it), and I appreciate that time and effort. Thank you!

Ah.. hospital scene is sweet.. I think it's possible to build a romance relationship, why not? But I don't really mind, only see they're together like this is enough. Not over but not less.
And..
"I don’t want to look like a fool when we find out that the real puppet master was Bo-won all along."
Wow.. maybe? haha I like the plot and twist.. really looking forward to it!
Thanks for the recap! Nice ^^

Restrain instead of forcing in a love story is definitely to be admired. I can't remember the number of times where I thought to myself "Huh? When and how did they fall in love?". If halfway through they do bring in the love story as a plot, I think then I wouldn't mind it.

Thank you for the recap. Been waiting for days..hehe.. I agree when you say ep 5 is the climax for part 1 in 3 Days.

For me episode 6 is really important. It became foundation for part 2 of 3 days. Some question has been answer like how Chief Ham make decision to kill Pres. How he has been manipulate to believe that the Yanjiri tragedy is because of Pres.

We also been exposed by the probability that the 98 document that been received by both Lawyer and Chief Ham are false document. The journey now is to get the real document.

As for the Pres, he now have breakaway from the evil camp. He try to take control and I believe he has succeed a little.

For the evil camp now, they are in bad condition. There will be many back-stab going.

Now is only 1/3 drama. I believe there will be so many surprises and twist. We still need to figure out who is the main evil after all.

as expected from a drama with a multilayered plot. you can never be too sure with your assumptions. simply wait in anticipation as the truth slowly unfolds.

good job yc!

thanks for the recap dramabeans!

I feel like it was another start and for TaeKyung who had wanted to walk away, he came back reeling in because of his own guilt and curiosity..TBH I feel like he wants to justify to himself that he did no wrong by pulling the trigger on his own mentor-but I wonder if he knew that HBS was a pawn of the whole game...will he blame himself?will he punish himself...

Anyway-thank you DB for recapping coz I really am looking forward how the drama to develop..

This week's eps weren't half bad. They were the highlights of the show so far anyway and I'm crossing all my fingers that the show manages to keep it up.

I like the understated and restrained relationship development too. In normal circumstances Bowon and TK's personalities probably would match, both being on the bright, cheery side while being all-in serious in work.

I liked TK's line, "it's my job to protect people", to explain why he was looking after her. It was somehow sweet. Would love some backstory into why and how TK got into his body-guarding protector job.

Yeh, we agree that Ham Bong Soo is not the real antagonist, but for the fact that he has plan to kill the president is already his fault. But of course, I pitied him, the 2 of them (Agent Hwang) bcoz they are being fooled by those high officials.

Actually this drama is like a roller coaster ride, there are cool parts while others are intense. But definitely, this show is something new to the dramaland (the plot) and it really gives us thorough understanding of things are not always predictable like what other dramas had.

Thumbs up for this drama! Cheers! Fighting 3 Days all the way!

"Korea’s slowest police officer" LOL! couldn't agree more..

I do think Agent Hwang is too desperate & stupid for behave like that after waiting for 16 years..But of course it's written on script..

I actually didn't noticed the photo of Tae-kyung’s father posted on the wall behind that killer[?]...hurm..I need to open my eyes bigger..
Thank goodness our Bo Won is smart enuff for wearing bulletproof vest and pretend to be dead after 1 shoot...You go girl!

But honestly, I can't help for being suspicious towards LCY especially when she yells at HTK while he's busy fighting with the so called "witness" and at the same time missed her shoots too..And the way she reported that the "witness" is safe, her eyes looks a bit frustrated? But I still hope she's not..

So, at this moment I fully trusted our HTK and Bo Won only..

BTW, I voted hospital scene for the best moment too^^ The moment HTK said “So don’t you die” just sweet and touched my heart..LOL!

Eventhough I love the fighting scene, my eyes is busy staring at Yoochun's right hand..good job anyway coz i don't feel awkward at all eventhough he rarely used his right hand..*hands down!*

Overall, I really love this drama so much, the idea, the acting is great and fun to watch.. can't wait for the next episode and recaps as well..Thanx ;)

Thanks for the recap. I find the female agent very suspicious...why is she always so slow in her reaction time?

I definitely like this drama, the acting, the conspiracy theories, and the back flashes. What I don't like is Cha-young she is not a good actress and her facial expressions are horrible.

can't help but notice how funny yoochun looks in the opening/ featured picture. if i didn't know any better, i'd have thought he's goofing around.

During the fight scene in this ep (the one w/ saving bo-won), i was so into it that I was air-punching, jumping and cheering on HTK. Lol.

And i love that hospital scene too. <3 That's what all i've been screaming on the screen, "give me some sweet/romantic moments too writer-nim". With all those fighting, chasing scenes and conspiracy theories, i need a breather. :D

I said to myself that i have to watch it without guessing or thinking what will happen next, etc. I just have to enjoy myself but i really can't help it. It's in my system already. Ha!

Anyways, thanks for the awesome recap averagerobot! :) 3days, FIGHTING!
