Three Days: Episode 7

I really like when our hero is a loose cannon. He goes off the rails a little in his effort to find answers about Dad, though it’s actually scarier when he starts to get close to the truth. ‘Cause everyone else who knew stuff is dead or narrowly avoiding death as we speak, which doesn’t exactly put the odds in his favor.

 
EPISODE 7 RECAP

March 8, 5:20 AM. 57 hours, 20 minutes after assassination attempt.

Cha-young runs up to Joint Chief of Staff Kwon’s apartment and raises her gun at the man standing by the window—the window that Kwon just fell out of, to be exact. Tae-kyung turns around to face her, and they’re both shocked.

Thankfully Cha-young doesn’t assume the worst, and lowers her gun right away. Tae-kyung explains that he came to ask Kwon a question, but the front door was left ajar and no one was here when he came inside. He did see someone leaving the floor as he arrived though, so they head down to look at the security camera footage.

Interestingly, our Jaesin Group assassin calls Chairman Kim and tells him that he didn’t have the chance to kill Joint Chief of Staff Kwon. Someone got to him first, and now he can’t get inside to dispose of Confidential 98. Great, there’s a second rogue assassin running around?

Of course, when Tae-kyung gets down to the security station, he finds all the cameras down and the earlier footage missing. He takes note of the name emblazoned on the security staff’s uniforms: Jaesin.

He pulls Cha-young aside to confirm how many times they’ve seen that name over the course of the last three days, and goes darting outside. She chases after him to warn that he’ll be made a suspect if he runs off like this, and asks him to get cleared first through official channels.

He bites back that he doesn’t care about being a suspect or not: “After my father died, everything in my head is a mess! I’m not sure of anything anymore.” He says he has to find answers, even if he’s grasping at tiny loose threads.

The president reels when he gets the news of Kwon’s death, and he tells them it’s crucial that they locate a file—people lost their lives to ensure it was made, and they have to recover it. Cha-young already guesses its name before her boss can repeat it: Confidential 98.

Meanwhile, the Jaesin assassin combs through the security footage in Kwon’s building, and he sees a person of interest enter the elevator. Omo, omo—it’s Chief Secretary Shin.

Secretary Shin goes to work like it’s a normal day, and tells President Lee that they need to discuss Tae-kyung’s father, Han Ki-joon. The president remembers that Secretary Shin had always been against the professor’s appointment as an advisor, and Secretary Shin admits that the way they first met always rankled him.

We flash back to a Blue House guard performance, to showcase their training to the president before being sworn in as agents. Among the events is a chance for the president to personally greet the agents’ families.

In the greeting line, Tae-kyung’s dad whispers to President Lee that he was there in ’98, and requests a private conversation. It visibly unnerves the president.

Chief Secretary Shin asks what they talked about, and what it has to do with those men he met in the hotel.

Tae-kyung calls a Blue House agent to ask if Chairman Kim of Jaesin Group was present at the hotel meeting. The agent confirms his presence, and adds that it was strange how lax the security was for that day. Tae-kyung guesses that it’s because they had something to protect, or something to hide.

Chief Secretary Shin asks the president what he did to trigger those men to retaliate to rashly. He’s sharp enough to have pieced together the truth on his own—that the public report of the Yangjinri Incident is falsified, and that President Lee was working with Tae-kyung’s father to reveal the truth. Someone give this man a cookie.

Cha-young and her team turn Joint Chief of Staff Kwon’s apartment apart looking for Confidential 98, but find nothing. As she digs around in the desk, she finds a scrap of paper jutting out below.

It’s a post office receipt, and when she looks into it, she finds that the package was sent to the Blue House, directly to the president. Have we finally caught a break in the case?

Back at the Blue House, President Lee finally speaks up and confirms that Chief Secretary Shin’s assumptions are true—the file that Tae-kyung’s father was working on was proof of what really happened in Yangjinri.

The phone rings, and the president gets word that Kwon sent him a package that should be arriving shortly. We watch the post office truck pass the Blue House gates, and then the package goes through security and lands in a pile of mail headed for the president. Cha-young and the other agents race back to try and intercept it.

Meanwhile, Chief Secretary Shin asks the president if he can’t just let it go—can’t they bury the truth, pin the Yangjinri Incident on the men who already died, and let the whole thing blow over? He urges President Lee to stop fighting, and to finish out his term as president. “Compromise. That’s politics.”

President Lee says Secretary Shin doesn’t know what horrible things he did around the world while working for Falcon, and so when Chairman Kim offered his hand—a way out—he took it. “I made the wrong choice. Yes. But are you asking me to do the dirty thing again?” He says that people died because of what he did, and he can’t let someone else take the fall for that.

The people opening the president’s mail look awfully suspicious, especially the guy opening Kwon’s package who hides it behind his back when Cha-young arrives. She asks for the mail, and he asks for a warrant.

Chief Secretary Shin asks how the president can just give up on his political career like that, after all he’s personally sacrificed to get them here. President Lee shuts him down cold: “I did not become the president for you.”

He leaves Secretary Shin standing alone in the presidential office, stunned and forcing back his tears. He wonders to himself, “Was I really the only one who dreamt a different dream?” Aw, poor sidekick. (Unless you’re a murderer. Then I take back the sympathy.)

We go back to last night when Secretary Shin went to go see Joint Chief of Staff Kwon. He asked for the file, and Kwon readily handed it over—the original, with Han Ki-joon’s blood all over the envelope.

As he reads it, Secretary Shin’s eyes widen in disbelief, and Kwon tells him that President Lee has always been covered in the blood of others. He screams that the president shouldn’t pretend he’s the only clean one in all this, and says he can die along with Chairman Kim. He’s already sent a copy of Confidential 98 to the Blue House.

The president walks into the mailroom to get the package himself, and opens it up… But inside is a single sheet of paper. His face falls, and Cha-young takes it from his hand to read it. Augh, it’s Kwon’s suicide note, claiming responsibility for everything (along with Team Leader Ham and Agent Hwang). Noooo. Who swapped the mail?

At the same time, Chief Secretary Shin calls someone and agrees to meet at Jaesin Hotel. And he’s got Confidential 98 sitting right there in the passenger seat.

Flashback to his meeting with Kwon: he reads the file and says this can’t get out because it incriminates the president. Kwon says President Lee is determined to go through with it even if he goes down too.

Secretary Shin says he’ll convince President Lee to change his mind, and when he says he’s been with the president since the start of his career as his political partner, Kwon actually laughs in his face. He calls Shin a glorified valet and sneers, “Do you think you made a president?”

Kwon says they’re the real players who put Lee Dong-hwi in office—their money and their power are what made a president. He likens Secretary Shin to an empty lighter on his desk, calling him dispensable: “You bark when you’re told to bark, and wag your tail when you’re told to wag. You’re Lee Dong-hwi’s dog.”

Secretary Shin’s eye flicker with a frightening icy, detached stare. He says vacantly that he’ll change the president’s mind, and show Kwon exactly what kind of person he really is. He inches forward to the window where Kwon is standing…

We cut away to the mailroom, where President Lee sighs in defeat that searching for the package will do no good—it’s already in someone else’s hands.

Chairman Kim heads to his hotel, but Tae-kyung is the first to arrive (to follow up on the Jaesin Group connection to the events). In flashback Team Leader Ham drills the agents about this particular hotel because the president is staying there for a diplomatic meeting. He orders them to memorize every inch of the place and know it forwards and backwards.

So as Tae-kyung walks through the lobby, he recalls every entrance and exit in the building, on every floor. Chairman Kim and Secretary Shin each arrive, and Tae-kyung makes his way through the hotel, ending with the service elevator.

As he gets on, a man with a familiar tattoo on his hand stops the door and joins him. You know, when you’re recapping two thrillers at once, it’s really hard to keep your tattooed men straight. This guy has the lizard tattoo, and he stabbed Agent Hwang in the crowd. Tae-kyung zeroes in on it immediately.

Secretary Shin arrives to meet Chairman Kim, who stands in the room with a hot poker in his hand. Uh, message received. Secretary Shin hands over Confidential 98, just like that.

Tae-kyung rides the elevator with Lizard Tattoo, who stupidly calls Tae-kyung by name and asks if he doesn’t know that the top floor is restricted. Yes, let’s warn the other guy that you’re about to attack. That seems smart.

No matter, because Tae-kyung is already about to attack him right back, and they come to blows.

Back in the suite, Chairman Kim asks what he wants in exchange for handing over Confidential 98. Secretary Shin says that everything he has now is what he built together with Lee Dong-hwi, but the president’s obstinance has ruined it all. “What I want is my own political power, that no one can touch.”

In the elevator, Tae-kyung matches the other guy blow for blow, until he takes out a gun. Shots ring out, and it sends the entire Jaesin security staff after them.

Tae-kyung narrowly misses being shot multiple times, but manages to finally get the upper hand and knock the other guy out. Man, I love it when Tae-kyung fights.

The elevator doors open, and Tae-kyung walks out, gun in hand.

Secretary Shin hands over the laptop he used to create Kwon’s suicide note. We don’t get to see him actually push the guy out the window, but he’s definitely our killer. Chairman Kim just smiles in satisfaction to have the solution handed to him, tied with a bow and everything.

Tae-kyung runs up to the top floor, knocks out the guards in swift succession, and enters the suite. When he reaches the inner room, Chairman Kim is standing there tearing out the pages of Confidential 98 one by one, and tossing them into a fire.

Tae-kyung runs over and grabs the remaining pages from his hands and sticks his gun in Chairman Kim’s face: “It was you. You killed my father.” But Chairman Kim doesn’t bat an eyelash, and just grabs the barrel and sticks it right to his forehead.

He eggs Tae-kyung on to hurry up and shoot if he’s going to. Tae-kyung shakes with his finger on the trigger, but he can’t pull and Chairman Kim knows it.

He says that a Secret Service agent’s job is to defend, not kill, and turns the blame for Dad’s death onto the president. “That’s the man you’ve protected until now.”

Tae-kyung screams at him to stop, and the security team uses that moment to knock him down. Chairman Kim picks up the gun and tells him that you have to have the power to use a weapon otherwise it’s pointless, and picks up the rest of Confidential 98.

He tosses it into the fire, and tells his guards to let Tae-kyung go. They leave him lying on the ground and he cries as he watches the file burn to ash, taking all the answers about his father’s death with it.

The screen fades to white and Chairman Kim’s disembodied voice rings out: “Shall I show you my real power now?”

Meanwhile, Bo-won has told her version of the story to Prosecutor Choi, who asks if it’s true. They’re suddenly interrupted when Internal Affairs storms in and calls Bo-won in for interrogation. They accuse her of knowing Tae-kyung before the incident and breaking laws to help him.

She swears she never met him before this case, but then they call in a witness—her police sunbae who was paid off to falsify the accident reports. He comes in and testifies that it was Bo-won who came and asked for reports about Tae-kyung to be doctored.

She looks at him agape, but he averts her eyes and sticks to the lie. No matter how much she protests, they refuse to believe she didn’t know Tae-kyung before this, and they suspend her from duty until further notice.

Things get worse when Chairman Kim releases the fake Confidential 98 to the public, under Joint Chief of Staff Kwon’s name. The Blue House staff confirms that the suicide note came from his own laptop, and wonder if that closes the case. Thankfully Cha-young isn’t about to let it go that easily.

After being suspended and dismissed, Bo-won leaves the station and finds her cowardly sunbae waiting outside for her. He sputters an apology about his circumstances, and she whirls around to say that she understands: “You go ahead and live that way. But I can’t.”

She says that being a small-town cop may not mean much to other people, but it was important to her, and she won’t take this lying down. She gets right back to the case, and finds the wife of one of the deceased men bombarded by reporters outside her house.

Tae-kyung sits alone at table with a bottle of soju, still in shock after his confrontation with Chairman Kim. He stares numbly at the bottle without drinking it, and then suddenly someone appears and pours him a glass.

It’s Team Leader Ham, who says in his soothing mentor voice that the choice ahead will be a difficult one, but no matter what his choice, he shouldn’t waver like last time. He passes Tae-kyung a glass and says he’ll be up to the task, and then offers his hand for a shake.

Tae-kyung looks up and slowly raises his hand. As soon as he takes it, the vision disappears. He tamps down his tears and gets up with determination.

While all this is going on, the news breaks that a congressional hearing on the president’s impeachment will go forward right away.

Tae-kyung storms into the Blue House and demands an audience with the president. His superiors stop him, but he pleads over and over for one chance to ask the president about his father.

President Lee doesn’t look especially eager to have the conversation, but lets Tae-kyung inside and asks to speak to him alone. Tae-kyung asks with such hope in his voice, “What kind of man was my father?”

He says that Dad is the only family he’s ever had, but he realizes now that he knew nothing of who his father really was—what worried him, and what he struggled with. He says that even in his final breath, rather than leave his son a message, he chose to protect that file. Tae-kyung asks if that dying act has any real meaning.

President Lee says that twenty-four people died in Yangjinri, and he lived for years as an ignorant patsy until Tae-kyung’s father came to him with the truth. So he set out to reveal that truth, but one by one everyone around him began to die.

They want him to go back to being the ignorant fool. He asks if that’s really the right thing to do, because if he stays on this path, more will die. And at every death, he’ll stop and ask himself if this is the right path.

At the same time, Congress calls an emergency session to vote on impeachment, and Chairman Kim sits in his office rubbing his hands together in glee.

President Lee turns to face Tae-kyung: “The answer will always be the same: I won’t give up. Even if they tell me I’m not fit for this position, even if they call me a sinner covered in the blood of others, I am the president who swore to protect the constitution and the justice of this country.”

He says he can’t back down—he must remain as the sitting president until the truth can be uncovered. He asks Tae-kyung, “Until then, can you protect me?”

March 8, 8:00 PM. 72 hours after assassination attempt. The last part is amended to start a new timeline: Impeachment brought before Congress.

 
COMMENTS

I like that we’re presenting Tae-kyung with a choice this time. He’s no longer going in blind and just doing a job out of civil duty regardless of what kind of man the president is. His faith in Dad is shaken, his judgment put into question, and his once rigid sense of right and wrong is has no meaning in the world of politicians where everyone is dirty. It’s nice to see him unraveling bit by bit as he’s confronted by the truth, and heartbreaking that in that moment he wants to lean on the mentor he killed.

Up until now, Tae-kyung’s motivation has been to seek answers about his father’s death, but the next segment sets us up for the stage where he takes up his father’s dying mission as his own. I really like the idea that he’s motivated by needing to give his father’s dying act meaning. And perhaps if he makes the same choice that Dad did to stand by the president, he’ll come to understand who his father was as a man.

Chief Secretary Shin had a great arc in this episode, and it made me wish we had gotten more scenes of him and the president working together as a team before the fallout. Because the story is great, but I could’ve used a little more buildup. I love how convinced he is that because they got to the Blue House together, the presidency is theirs to share. The look on his face when President Lee cuts him down to size is crushing, like he just got kicked out of the band.

And then in retrospect it’s even worse, because he’s gone so far as to kill a man to protect what he thought was their legacy, believing that his friend would see him as more than just a lapdog. It’s the perfect setup for his betrayal, which I liked as a story turn, despite having my hopes up that Secretary Shin would turn out to be a good guy.

Now that we’re entering the second three days of our nine-day story (whatever, show that can’t count), it’ll be nice to have Tae-kyung working with the president on the inside. Can we get Bo-won involved too? Because I know you needed your rogue broody time, but you’re kind of a downer without her.

Thank you for the recap! I like the development in this ep. When Shin Kyu-Jin contacted KDJ for help in ousting the president and taking his place, I was reminded of the comment that JB or GF made about having Yoon Je-Moon or Jang Hyun-Sung in a drama, and not using them as villains. This is my 2nd drama with YJM, and I have to admit that I bought into SKJ being a good guy in the previous episodes. I thought all he wanted to do was loyally serve the president. Turns out, he sees himself as a co-president? That must have really stung, when Kwon Jae Hyun kept calling him a dog, and someone who lives in the shadows of the president. I guess his true colors came out then.

I continue to feel for HTK. The difficult choices that he has to make, and realizing that he didn’t know his father after all (or least, not as well as he thought he did). That line about when his father was dying, “and his last words were about [his work], that document,” and not about his son, wow! That puts things in perspective. I also love that we got to see how much he really admired and looked up to his boss, HBS. When he is struggling, and feeling lonely, his deceased boss is the one who comes to his mind. Interestingly, not his dad either (for a good piece of advice), but HBS. If seems as if, if protecting the president and revealing the truth of what happened in 1998 was vital to his dad, HTK’s relationship with HBS was very important to him as well. Maybe the fact that in his adult years he spent more time with HBS than with his dad, had something to do with it.

I look forward to tomorrow’s ep., and seeing what HTK will tell the president (his answer), and how things will proceed from there. The bad guys think that YBW is dead, I can’t help but wonder how long that will last. I do hope that she will manage to stay safe for most of the drama. I tend to worry a little bit when I see her. I felt so bad for her, when she wanted to go help that lady and the little girl, and then realized that she couldn’t, because she had been suspended. I am glad that she is determined to see HKJ’s case and (it seems) both investigations to the end.

I do hope that there is a copy of the original 1998 document somewhere. SKJ looks like the kind of guy who is very perceptive, so hopefully he is not completely trusting KDJ. When that 1998 document was burning, I was thinking, “poor HTK, every time he seems to be getting close to an answer, it slips through his hands.” More heartache and headache.

This drama "defies logic and common sense"?

That's too harsh. Although there are certain parts built for dramatizing things, the drama is by no means defying logic and common sense coz we do see the storyline quite tightly-woven which means many of us watching definitely see where the story is going and wants to find out what happens next.

On the tattoo, this is just being biased and subjective. Doesn't mean people with tattoo must be up to no good. Anyone from a singer to a killer can have tattoos. If you are a killer then you shouldn't be having a tattoo as it will expose you as a KILLER? What kind of biasness and (lack of) logic is that?

So I definitely don't agree with your comments here. Let's keep an open mind about things, including tattoos please!

"If you are a killer then you shouldn’t be having a tattoo as it will expose you as a KILLER? What kind of biasness and (lack of) logic is that?"

Uhm, I think you completely missed (much of) the logic right there. A killer having a tattoo on their hand is ridiculous since that pretty much narrows down the number of suspects the investigators need to investigate to find the killer. It's not 'biasness' just basic thriller rules, so I find Gg's comment very legit.

Anyways, this drama does defy logic at so many points I stopped actually questioning it. It's fun sometimes, then seriously boring at others, but if we ignore inconsistencies, then I suppose it's decent.

But with the tattoo it actually builts for a thriller too so that is the other side of the coin for you. Easy to identify vs something for us audience to look at and scream NOOOO!

Anyways, I wasn't too upset about that, just pointing out the other side of things so people don't mistake the tattoo = killer biasness.

And agree with NOT questioning the LOGIC of dramas, not just this one!

The killer obviously has a very special personality, that is arrogant, outgoing, easy to be complacent, and boldness, stupid.
Recall that the first time he showed rampant face after killed a person, smoking, whistling, burning clothes.
plus, in the elevator, call HTK's name before attack him, this is stupid, just call out HTK's vigilance, is clearly not a shrewd killer. so he got killed so early and easily, unlike his partner the other killer is much more smart and intelligent.
Untill now, this story is very good. im enjoy it very much.
Sorry about my english......

lol. i dont think the comment was too harsh but i get what both sides are saying. we know that sometimes what seems like plot holes are woven into the story but other times, things don't make sense or feels like everyone is incompetent. and both comments about the tattoo is more about being obvious than them being close minded. i dont think you need to get all worked up about it.

Micky is acting his heart out. ParkHS is suited to this role. The veteran ajussis are great. But the writing is lack luster. It isn't deserving of them. For a show with so much talent and anticipation, it is the failing of the writing and directing that doesn't propel it to the top spot.

For one thing, I also find that it defies logic and common sense in many places. For another, it manages to take the thrill out of the thriller.

Will Micky have time before enlisting to do another drama? Probably not. Sigh.

Hi bluesky,

Remember that . . .

First, the guy did not become an assassin as a career day choice out of grade school. He undoubtedly had a bad upbringing and an eventful and unusual life before he got into this line of work. Which meant he could have picked up that tattoo on weekend drunk, on a high school bet, as a member of a street-gang, as a mercenary, etc. Nothing about the background of assassins requires that they have the intelligence for details of Sherlock Holmes or Jason Bourne. Most are just thugs with above average IQs and a little luck in their background experience.

Second, this guy does not know he is in a drama series where he is going to have a number of dangerous near-miss encounters with trained observers in which both he and those observers are going to survive. He expects that, if he does his job right, he is going to have few or no encounters with anyone but the innocent and indifferent and will not have to worry about random observers smart enough to notice details like a drama PD.

So far Jaesin Group is a conglomerate active in the Hotel, Media, Military/Defense, Security Company, and Telecommunications industries.

Future segments of the market place that Jaesin Group will probably wind up having a stronghold in and controlling are Automotive, Banking, Bioengineering, Chemical, Construction, Electronics, Food, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas Industry, Retail, Shipping, Technology, Transportation, Utility, etc.

The fight scene in the elevator was action-packed and intense.

So..... anyone else wondered why Han Tae Kyung was let go by Chairman Kim and his henchmen?
We are talking about people who systematically murdered every witness they could find, even Bo Won just because she saw the EMP. And now they find a presidential bodyguard who knows that they are behind the assassination attempt on the president AND the murder of his father AND who points a gun on Chairman Kim and they just let him live?

I-on the other hand-is in love with it coz FINALLY! there's a break in kdrama in which love between a girl and a boy is not the main focus of the drama but love for the country-nation-family-comrade is..the action scenes are awesome too thus, I have no complaints and am really enjoying the cat and mouse-hide 'n' seek-chase we're being put through

THIS!! So agree.

It's the type of drama where you've to bring your brain along to watch, otherwise, you'll be lost midway through. And I personally think that's also one of the many reasons why many regular KDrama-followers find it hard to digest coz they are so used to the regular cliché romcom dramas which are pretty straightforward and easy to understand.

Just wondering is the real document really destroyed? I mean seems weird for the bad guy to give it up so easily to the Chief of Staff? And I gotta admit that I started watching this show thinking that all the episodes would add up to three days, like Two Weeks or God's Gift format too.

I really like this show, I feel for Tae-Kyung he can't trust anyone which makes him appear to be half cocked all the time. I hope that there is another copy of Confidential 98 that someone who was not directly involved with the others, has for safe keeping.

I find this recap a very interesting read. There almost seems no end to the amount of bad guys adding up. I keep asking myself, who is left minding the store?

Chief of Staff Shin shows an amazing amount hubris. But he wouldn't be the first person who hovers next to power and doesn't feel its magnetic drawing power. "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Chairman Kim also exhibits that eternal flaw of feeling untouchable simply because of who he is...the bigger you are, the harder you fall.

HTK is slowly coming to the place where he knows his father had flaws, but he also knows he was not a naturally bad man. My money is still on Minister Han being human, but not perfect. I too think there is another copy of the original C 98 floating around. I'm putting money on it being somewhere HTK's father leaving a trail for his son to find.

I'm going to wait for the next recap and then do a marathon watching the two episodes this weekend.

Hello! I am enjoying the show too, a lot. Regarding your question, the president was supposed to be the one dead but he swapped places with the gardener because he had to leave the villa and meet the prosecutor without letting the Secret Service know. Agent Ham thought the gardener was the president and he shot him and he fell in the water. Hope I helped.

I like the elevator scene too, very realistic unlike other heroes in the dramas that don't get hit when having fight scenes. And Chairman Kim is like a spoiled brat middle aged man slash pyscophat.

Thanks GF for the recap.

This recap did make me think of a lot and reminded me that there's still plenty here to keep me interested, even though, for me, it hasn't been nearly as exciting since earlier when HTK was a suspect for the assassination.

When we learned of Shin Kyu Jin's intentions, I was whining, "No, don't be evil :(" at the laptop screen. At first, I admired his loyalty but apparently loyalty is very easy to mistake for self-interest!

Maybe I'm the only one, but all this Confidential '98 business is making my head swim. I know the snooty guy in the fancy room is the real bad guy, not President Lee, but I also know that the Pres is guilty to an extent..just not AS guilty? Or just guilty in a way that makes us sympathize, I guess, cause he is determined to expose the truth...?

I don't know, there's just a part of me that sometimes stops caring about this controversial incident, because if they're all guilty, then they're all guilty, and that's that! But at the same time, if I stop caring about that bit, then there goes the whole drama.

I think what really keeps me watching is HTK and his internal conflict. The shift from viewing his late boss as a father-figure role model to an enemy and then back to a role model that died at his hand - it's that emotional struggle that keeps me interested. Anytime HTK remembers his chief, my heart throbs a bit for him, and I find myself wondering how he's going to clean up this mess inside him.

3 Days deserved to be praised because of it's outstanding plot. Very solid, perhaps many might not appreciate bcoz there are noromantic scenes but this new genre is new to the dramaland yet they receive pretty ratings.

Park Yoochun indeed really became a very good actor in each character played. For me, Park Yoochun is the korean heartrob.

Waiting for episode 8 recap and episodes 9 and 10 next week. Oh im really sad they're half on their way and soon this drama will end. I'll just hope they extend the episodes, but I doubt bcoz the daya/time are calculated in this drama.

I thought I could feel the bromance between HTK and the President, but I rather I feel the Bromance between Han Tae Kyung and Ham Bong Soo. I really love this drama, I really hate Chief Ham bcoz of his desires to become a President someday or eve stay i his position as Chief secretary. And Kim Do Jin ahjussi, is really pretty attractive but I hte his character. Haha. Just enjoy watching each episodes, there are lots of action scenes that I'm going to witness as the drama progresses.
