The K2: Episode 10

Ensuring Anna’s safety will be even more important this hour when nearly everyone around her is preparing for battle. Everything may be fair in love and war, but it’ll take everything in Je-ha’s arsenal to keep her out of the crossfire. When this world is full of people who are eager to use her for their own benefit, she’ll have one bodyguard who will shield her from any attack no matter what.

EPISODE 10 RECAP

Je-ha’s fingers are clasped around the door handle when Anna’s voice transmits through the walkie-talkie. He leaps across the room in silence, nearly hurting himself before picking up in an even voice.

She says he forgot to tell her goodnight, so he does. Content, she tells the radio to sleep well, as he does the same.

Mi-ran applies makeup on Anna’s face the next morning, and giggles that Anna needs to have her first kiss too. Recalling how Je-ha administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation following her allergy attack, Anna says she’s already been kissed.

Anna pouts while Mi-ran laughs at how that doesn’t count as a kiss—why, she was even kissed yesterday. Curious, Anna clings to that slip-up, and Mi-ran quickly changes the subject, explaining how she let Anna have Je-ha.

Anna rolls her eyes at that, and Mi-ran smiles that they’ll apply some lipstick that make her lips magically kissable. She runs out looking for Je-ha, and looks disheartened when she’s told that he left early this morning.

What she doesn’t know is why, as we hear the housekeeper recall how Je-ha had planned to meet Yoo-jin so she wouldn’t hunt Anna down anymore.

We see Je-ha get out of his car for a smoke when he’s sent a selca of Anna looking dolled up. He scoffs, and the text is quickly followed up with a call from Anna herself, who anxiously asks for his opinion.

She beams when he says she looks pretty and declares that he’s hers now. He’s initially puzzled and then sighs, telling her to think however she likes. She tells him to stay safe today, and he replies that he will.

He meets Yoo-jin outside her home and rides along in the car, where she asks if Anna likes her new situation. He answers “yes”, but when she asks when they’ll return, he says nothing, which infuriates her.

Secretary Kim later reminds Yoo-jin to keep her bubbling anger in check prior to her last interview regarding Anna. She’s already working on making sure the public forgets Anna soon enough.

Down in the parking lot, Chief Joo wonders what Sung-won may do next because he must know that Yoo-jin won’t let this current arrangement continue if her husband is elected. Which is why Chief Joo believes that Anna isn’t a shield to Sung-won, but a sword he can use to strike Yoo-jin.

Anna is makeup-free when she greets Sung-won, who hands her the case files regarding her mother’s death. During her TV interview, Yoo-jin is asked how she became Anna’s guardian. She explains how she and Anna’s mother became friends while she was working at JB Group and the latter was a commercial model for the company.

Anna’s mother had met her future husband, Director Go, at JB Group since the company had been producing one of his projects. Yoo-jin thinks calling herself a matchmaker would be a stretch, but she feels as if she’s the reason why those two had gotten married.

The interviewer picks up on that note of guilt, asking if it was because the marriage didn’t last. Emotions well up in Yoo-jin’s voice as she confirms it and tearfully nods that was why she later took Anna in.

Seeing those tears, the interviewer pauses for a commercial break. Yoo-jin stiffens and turns off her mic to remark how it would’ve been better to keep going, to which the host returns a casual apology, knowing how difficult it must’ve been for Yoo-jin to wring out those tears.

But then the host does a little fact check—to her knowledge Yoo-jin was studying overseas during the time she claimed to have been working at JB Group. While the makeup artist fixes her makeup, Yoo-jin softly answers she came back to Korea from time to time.

And to that, the host says her brother-in-law was at JB Group at the time, and even he couldn’t corroborate her story. Yoo-jin returns that an ordinary employee couldn’t have known, and the host answers, “He was a president there.” Oh my damn.

The host doesn’t bat an eyelash when Yoo-jin suggests that they stick to the script—her son is currently overseas, thus Yoo-jin won’t be able to use him to manipulate her. And this time, she’ll get the last word: “Will my son be separated from his mother and wander alone in this world for ten years?”

On that note, the host continues the interview, noting how Yoo-jin must’ve kept in touch with Anna’s mother, Um Hye-rin, following her divorce and return to Korea. It takes a few moments for Yoo-jin to snap out of her daze and formulate an answer about how much it pained her to see Hye-rin so distraught.

Her words get caught in her throat when Yoo-jin speaks of Hye-rin’s death. She confirms that Anna has been her ward since then, and that Hye-rin did not know the fashion designer who is currently searching for Anna.

Noting how it’s a pity Anna isn’t present, the host points out how Yoo-jin described how Anna was a “sick child.” Yoo-jin affirms that statement, describing how Anna is unable to even leave the house because of her social aversion and panic disorder. Uh oh, I see where this conversation is going.

It’s at that moment the host invites Anna to join them on stage. Yoo-jin’s eyes widen as she sees Anna walk in with Sung-won, who exchange nods with the host. Je-ha appears worried, but Anna boldly walks to the stage.

The crew has dimmed the lights for Anna’s benefit, and the interview continues. Anna explains how she knew who the designer was, but she had no idea he was looking for her. She claims her mother had brought up his name from time to time, because the fashion designer was one of her mother’s friends.

But this version of the story doesn’t match with Yoo-jin’s earlier claims, and Yoo-jin can’t come up with a defense. They watch a video message from the designer himself who speaks of how much Anna looked like his former muse: her late mother. He belatedly learned of the mother-daughter connection, and asks Anna to be his new muse so he can make her a star.

Anna surprises everyone with her answer that she won’t be traveling abroad anytime soon. Her priorities are to treat her panic disorder and take care of business here first. When asked what that is, Anna turns to a tense and silent Yoo-jin, then answers that she plans on cracking the case regarding her mother’s death.

Rather than a refusal to acknowledge her mother’s death as suicide, Anna would like to know the reasons why her case was ruled as such. Her mother was still a popular celebrity at the time, and they were supposed to leave for the States. She had even prepared a passport for her, but she had died that night and hadn’t left behind a suicide note.

Sung-won appears satisfied with the interview and turns to leave while the host asks if Yoo-jin has any information to offer Anna since she and her mother were close friends.

Yoo-jin can’t think of anything, so Anna turns to the camera and makes a public plea, asking for any and all information regarding her mother’s death.

That gets people questioning the case, and afterward, Je-ha confronts Anna for putting herself in her enemies’ direct line of fire. He wonders if Sung-won was responsible for the surprise appearance, but Anna claims that the idea was hers and Sung-won had tried to persuade her not to. Oh, Sung-won, how sneaky of you.

Once they’re alone, Je-ha’s voice softens to concern. Anna says Sung-won will help her get back at Yoo-jin, and Je-ha will be there to protect her.

Needless to say Yoo-jin is still shaking when she returns to the dressing room. She admits that she must’ve miscalculated and that she should’ve listened to Secretary Kim’s suggestion of killing Anna when they had the chance.

As Je-ha reads over the case documents, Anna explains how her mother actually died a painful death because her nails were broken when they found her. CEO Gook meets with the police commissioner who says how the tables have turned against Se-joon now. He whispers the shocking reason to CEO Gook, though we’re not privy to hear it yet.

Both Anna and Yoo-jin get made up in separate salons. Secretary Kim reassures Yoo-jin that she’ll take care of things before she meets Se-joon later that evening, but Yoo-jin decides that it’s best not to strike Je-ha for now—they’ll find a use for him later. She wistfully adds that he still has the email.

While Anna is busy being attended to, Je-ha chats with Sung-won. He remarks on how all company chairmen must have a lot of free time on their hands, to which Sung-won chuckles that his employees are the ones making the money.

People like him are busy fighting wars over castles they’ve built and stolen from one another. He describes it as a vicious, never-ending cycle of battles and conquering and battling some more, which prompts Je-ha to retort that Chief Joo was right that Sung-won is using Anna like a weapon.

Sung-won is impressed and cheerily confirms that he’s correct; however, he doesn’t see anything wrong with helping Anna get her revenge if that means he gets to keep JB Group. He laughs when Je-ha accuses him of deliberately handing over case documents that contain graphic crime scene photos to a girl prone to panic attacks.

He reminds Je-ha that the woman he loves is no longer a child. Je-ha retorts that Sung-won must not know his noona at all, because he would never have brought Anna to the studio if he did.

Midway through Anna’s photoshoot, the photographer informs Sung-won that he’s limited without the use of flash. So Sung-won sends everyone away for lunch, and gives Anna some anti-anxiety drugs prescribed by Doctor Lee.

He claims the medication will kick in about an hour’s time, which should hopefully allow them to use flash photography. Having overheard the exchange, Je-ha examines the bottle and says she should be receiving medication directly from her doctor instead of Sung-won.

But Anna trusts that Sung-won wouldn’t give her anything dangerous and hopes that the drugs will work. Oh honey.

As Sung-won and the photographer’s crew leaves the building, a delivery man pulls up with a flower basket for Anna. He takes down the guards when he’s denied entry, then signals the other men inside.

Je-ha doubles back when he sees the men carrying in trunks containing gas masks and other equipment. He sees the men release anesthetic gas into the air, and he’s unable to get through to anyone since those men have disabled the wireless service within the building.

He hurries back to Anna and instructs her to escape through the ducts. She refuses to leave him behind, but he reminds her that he can fight his way out of this building. He’ll be at a disadvantage if she stays since he’ll need to protect her, but Anna argues that he’ll be useless against the gas anyway.

He sees the gas nearby, but Anna continues to protest, so he begs her to leave first lest they both die. Anna relents, and he sends her up through the air duct while the room continues to fill up with gas.

Thankfully Je-ha is able to use the landline to call Secretary Kim, and when she says Yoo-jin is busy, he realizes that it was her. Secretary Kim has no reason to call those men off since she neither likes Je-ha nor cares for Se-joon.

Everything was going according to plan until Je-ha showed up on the scene and threw everything into chaos, she continues. Now it’s time to place everyone back in their rightful place.

Je-ha manages to tell Secretary Kim that he’ll be coming for her before the line goes dead. He hides in the corner until the men in gas masks show up, then takes them down one at a time.

He swipes one of the gas masks and marches toward the next group of masked men who wield knives. He avoids their oncoming swipes, but his mask is ripped off of his face. Coughing, he waits for a masked man to attack, and avoids their jabs and strikes.

Anna happens to see the fight from above as Je-ha takes a few punches before grabbing one man to use him as a launching pad for a flying kick. He knocks the knife out of his hand and removes his gas mask.

Je-ha wields a knife against the two other masked men, slashing one man’s arm and twirling the knife in his hand before slashing another arm. Unfortunately, he’s kicked down to the ground, and just as the man is about to strike, Anna appears behind him and takes down both men with a fire extinguisher.

She screams at Je-ha to come to while one man approaches her with a knife. She runs down the halls, hollering Je-ha’s name. She hides from her pursuer, but is unable to stifle a cough, and that gives away her position.

Just as her attacker is about to turn the corner, Je-ha appears from behind and strangles him. He falls to the ground moments later, and Anna removes the gas mark and manages to put it on him before she too falls unconscious.

Seeing the small group of protesters outside the prosecutor’s office, Se-joon says it’s about time for his release. The prosecutor agrees, but instead of coming back to collect Se-joon, the prosecutor announces that the politician is subject to be investigated for a different crime.

Both Se-joon and Yoo-jin tense at the news while Representative Park laughs maniacally in his office.

Mi-ran and Sung-gyu find Je-ha and Anna in the building. Everyone is awake by the time Sung-won returns to the building, and Je-ha suggests that Anna be moved to the safe house since Secretary Kim wouldn’t dare to strike JSS.

He calls Chief Joo to fill him in while the group led by Yoo-jin heads down to the Cloud Nine sublevel to find out about Se-joon’s newest investigation. Incensed, she tells her legal team to do whatever they can to prevent an arrest, then follows up with her accountants to make sure the documents they handed over to the prosecutors were error-free.

She’s unable to get through to the presidential chief of staff, Chief Min, because he’s busy asking if Representative Park is trying to force the president’s hand. But Representative Park insists that he’s simply taking preventative measures against Se-joon, believing he shouldn’t join their political party.

He admits he is scared of an ordinary man like Se-joon trying to battle the political nobility. So what he’d like is for Chief Min to stay out of sight until the election is over, at which point he’ll reserve a cushy position for Chief Min.

He hangs up to rejoin the celebratory party he’s holding for the other politicians he’s “saved” from the corruption case, welcoming them all back with open arms. Hearing that there are some younger politicians outside who would like to join in on the festivities, Representative Park instructs his secretary to set up a separate room for them.

Yoo-jin, meanwhile, tries to wrap her head around what Representative Park has up his sleeve. CEO Gook believes that Representative Park is using Chief Min to get to the president so that they can get an arrest warrant against Se-joon and drag on the case until the presidential election.

Even if they win the legal case, CEO Gook says they’ll lose their shot at the presidency. So what they need to do now is to attack Representative Park tonight. Yoo-jin questions whether or not that’s actually possible since the politician likely called upon the most elite bodyguards he could muster.

CEO Gook points out that they have someone even better than those men: Je-ha.

Speaking of whom, Je-ha sends the JSS agents to check out the safe house before collecting Anna. She confesses that she’s too scared, so Je-ha takes the blanket on her lap and covers them both with it.

Taking small steps together, Je-ha tells her to be careful since they can’t see what lies ahead of them. He turns to her to ask if she’s scared. She is, and their faces are mere inches apart. He gulps at the close proximity… and then her stomach growls. Je-ha: “Are you hungry?” Way to kill the mood, dude.

She asks if that was her, and he says it was. Feeling awkward, she says she was just surprised, and then declines his offer to make her ramyun. Je-ha: “Then why is your stomach making noises?”

She insists that her stomach is fine, and then they both trip on the steps. They walk for a few more seconds before he asks if she’s okay now. Anna says she’s still a bit scared, and Je-ha’s face draws nearer for a moment before he turns away and they both trip again.

He reaches for the door and once they’re inside, he asks what she wants to eat most. She thinks about it for a moment, then says she doesn’t know. They take a few more steps together before Je-ha says they’ve arrived. Anna: “Already?”

Je-ha asks if she’s still scared. She murmurs in agreement, and he swoops in to kiss her. In the kitchen, Mi-ran squeals when she realizes what the lovebirds are doing. Sung-gyu protects her when the housekeeper scolds her, only to be scolded himself. Lol.

Over at Cloud Nine, Chief Joo says that the best attack is one when the enemy least expects it. But Representative Park will expect them to retaliate tonight, which makes their chances of success slim, even for someone as skilled as Je-ha.

But it seems Yoo-jin is willing to act on that sliver of success because Je-ha answers the call on the condition that the safe house is protected. He tells Anna that he’ll be back, but Anna knows that means he’s headed for danger. She tells him not to go and embraces him.

Je-ha leaves anyway, and sits with Cloud Nine to learn that while he has a chance to assassinate Representative Park, it’s unlikely he’ll return alive.

He agrees to do it, but he has several conditions. Yoo-jin braces herself before hearing the first: he wants Secretary Kim’s head. Secretary Kim agrees to that, but has a condition of her own: Je-ha needs to off Representative Park first.

All parties agree that the deal is a fair one, and Je-ha names his next condition: Yoo-jin will promise to leave Anna alone. If Yoo-jin does that, he’ll persuade Anna to stay out of her way. Yoo-jin agrees to that.

Je-ha says he’d like reinforcements so that he isn’t the only one taking all the blows. CEO Gook agrees and asks if they can’t have the email Je-ha is holding hostage. But Yoo-jin says they don’t need it, since they’ll be done for anyway if Je-ha doesn’t succeed.

Everyone but Je-ha is dismissed, and Yoo-jin says affectionately, “Je-ha-yah. You can turn back if you think the situation is too dangerous.” He asks where this sudden concern is coming from, but she needn’t worry—he got rid of that email long ago.

“Je-ha-yah…” she repeats. Je-ha walks up to her and says, “I believe you’re someone who upholds her promises.”

Anna calls him just before the agents move out, and asks that he bring back some ddukbokki later. Tears well up in her eyes as she says it’s okay if it’ll be late, and refuses to let anyone eat some besides them.

Secretary Kim calls Team Leader Seo to issue an additional order: regardless of how tonight’s assassination goes, Je-ha must be taken out and his phone must be confiscated.

At the same time, Je-ha jokes that he’ll need to pick up the food if he wants to stay alive. Anna tells him to come back alive. “That’s an order.”

Je-ha: “I’ll make sure to come back to you.”

 
COMMENTS

Not if Secretary Kim has her way, that is. I know I should feel a greater sense of dread about Je-ha being thrown into the front lines of this mission, but I’m also reminded that we simply can’t lose a hero three weeks to the end. I do, however, fear that he might come dangerously close since the phrase, “I’ll be right back” is every hero’s parting words before he enters a fight he might not win.

Still, Je-ha hasn’t been beaten yet, especially when it comes to protecting those whom he holds dear. Now Anna is on the top of that list, and he’ll do anything it takes to come back and protect her from the wolves that are eager to devour her. Even if that means asking for Secretary Kim whose loyalty to Yoo-jin has never wavered. We’ve previously seen just how far that loyalty goes, from escorting a young Anna to the airport to offering to have Anna killed and even now, ordering that Je-ha be done away with. Despite all the evil deeds she’s carried out for her boss, she hasn’t shown an interest in trying to take a cut of the ambitious pie herself, instead sticking to Yoo-jin’s side like glue. It makes me wonder if her actions are an extension of her sense of loyalty or a deeper sense of affection.

Even though it seems like we’ve been waiting a while since Representative Park found out about Je-ha, I do realize that only a few days have passed in this dramaverse. Seeing him take down Yoo-jin’s whole world and network in a matter of hours did pump in some tension into the story, though the execution was rather underwhelming knowing that all of that was magically orchestrated offscreen. Luckily for him, we have Yoo-jin to walk us through her crumbling world with her emotions, which have been on edge this week.

She’s been losing a lot of ground in this ongoing war, and her anger and fear threaten to boil over the thin mask she puts on to hide them. Although she knows that Je-ha would do anything to protect Anna, her final conversation with him proves that she wishes to protect him too. She breaks down the emotional distance by calling him “Je-ha-yah” and even gives him an out, even though his escape would mean losing everything she’s worked for.

These two characters have toed the line between business partners and friends from time to time, giving us some crackling acting chemistry. Although Je-ha is devoted to Anna now, Yoo-jin is willing to admit her attachment to him. I sometimes wonder if it’s almost romantic on her end since her husband doesn’t love her, but at the very least, she would feel threatened to lose her own protector.

Speaking of which, it is nice to see Anna looking out for Je-ha. He’s always been the one to protect her, but her concern for others extends to him too. Sure she’ll still refuse to leave his side in clear danger and is still too trusting with Sung-won, but the girl has gotten a proper first kiss now, so you know she’ll want him to come back for a second.

There ya go, @echo - back to your senses...just like the rest of us!! Good thing Ji Chang Wook is the centerpiece of this drama because I'd drop it like a hot potato if not. It's just TOO far-fetched and forced and often becomes downright painful to watch. I almost expected a line of musical actors to come dancing in from stage-left across the back of the stage, barely visible through the dry-ice ...ahem...uh, um, POISON GAS FOG!!!
But, darn it all, I'm in for the whole ride. It's almost become a game to watch out for the next bit of AB-surd ridiculousness.

Lunatic and Al'sBevy, I'm with both of you's, this drama is getting so ridiculous I'm just fast forward watching for Ji Chang Wook and reading Dramabeans recaps for the remainder. The only other saving grace besides the shower scene is the cute scenes with him and Yoonha now and her character is quite strong for him. Otherwise it is almost ranks on par with Uncontrollaby Fond in depressing and draggy.

Share all your sentiments. Ji Chang Wook kept me watching until now but at this juncture even he isn't enough because his role is pretty unconvincing and dull. Another one bites the dust. Suddenly kdramaland feels a little empty after the end of Moonlight Drawn by Shadows. Thank goodness Seo In Gook is around to spread the happy virus!

Gas scene was one of the most ridiculous hard-to-believe bits ever.
1: Jeha seems to think that holding his arm over his nose is a substitute for a gas mask.
2: Jeha & Anna both seem to be 90% gas-proof anyway.
3: Anna must have had a fire extinguisher in her purse, because I didn't see one in the hallway or the air vent. Oh wait, she didn't have a purse either. Would have been more credible to have her pick up a stray knife and slash a couple throats, but I guess k-drama heroines aren't supposed to do that. Maybe have her use the tricks Master Sung showed her.

And why did uncle Sung-won send Mi-ran away with everyone else, leaving Anna & K2 alone together? And then he leaves just as the baddies approach? If it wasn't for the phone call between K2 and Yoo-jin's evil Miss Minion Secretary Kim, I would think uncle arranged the attack. Could Sung-won and Secretary Kim be in league? Why? Are they an item? Are they the evil masterminds? I don't really think so, but Sung-won's actions don't make sense otherwise.

I have a feeling Secretary Kim is one of Sung-won's person, because his action before the the gas thingy was suspicious. Probably SW planted Kim to be the closest person to YJ in order to control YJ. And now with the existence of JH beside YJ as well, Kim is feeling insecure, that's why she wants to get rid of JH.

I think also, YJ's mental issue probably caused by any weird medicine given by Kim. (and now I remember SW gave a suspicious medicine to Anna as well, i feel like it was not for reducing her nervousness, but probably to make her loss consciousness during the gas thingy, but again SW has no reason to get rid of Anna, at least at this moment. What can I think that could be some medicine which can slowly affected Anna's body).

I don't know Kim 's actual motive because at times she looks obsess with YJ, maybe she wants to control YJ and possess YJ. Auw scary.

for someone who watched TV all the time, if she watched widely all channels, maybe there are knowledge she can pick up. But she don't even know how to on oven and cooked noodle?

then how does she know what is a fire extignusher and unhook it from the wall? she looks from someone who needs guidance even for all basic life skill...

Is anyone else low key annoyed at Yoo-jin lip makeup this whole entire episode?? Her lips look sooooo chapped. Those close ups really pointed them out to me, and kinda made me even more mad at her (along with her victim syndrome).

Queen Bee really needs to use some chapstick or switch lip glosses. Maybe just stop biting your lip whenever your evil schemes don't go according to plan.

I'm bothered by the fact that the colour is on so blotchily so often. Not sure if the lips are chapped. I thought it was a deliberate kdrama lip colour thing, introducing a new trend in vulnerable, kissable lips or something :D

Lol at the running gag of this show that is 'Je Ha and his unlit cig'? Not a fan of smoking but somehow it looks smexy on JCW's lips.
And because I was barely paying attention to the plot, when Je Ha says, 'Firstly, give me a head', I mistook it for a totally different meaning. Forgive this very frustrated noona.

I wish this show could give us a lot of twists.

I want JH to be darker inside. Every time Anna says something in line with "I have you to protect me, I am not scared", JH breaks the eye contact and shows subtle signs of hesitation. I want himto actually betray her. I also want Anna to turn out to be not as innocent as she looks. The tone of the story is too dark, so their pure, fluffy romance does not fit. I want their romance to be messed-up a little bit, they can still get together in the end, but not like "an angel and her pure savior lived happily ever after". I could actually like a bitter ending for this drama.

I have to admit, Jehanna couple is cute. But YJ&JH can do things to me that even a sweet kiss from Jehanna cannot do. For example, my heart skipped a beat as he walks towards YJ at the Cloud 9. It was one of the "now, kiss!" moments that these two are constantly giving. I just like how dark, mature, and twisted JH becomes whenever he is with YJ.

I don't think Je-ha's reaction to Anna's assertion that he will protect her is any indication that he will betray her. Rather, I think it is fear on his part that he will fail to protect Anna just like he feels he failed to protect Raniya.

@BossyPixie
I also think the same, he's probably thinking that the last girl who trusted him was dead as he wander his eyes. I know that. In my commrnt, I tried to tell what I wish this hesitation meant. I think it would be more suitable to the tone of the drama if that hesitation meant to show that he's going to betray her. They can still end up together, but I want to see them once in the opposite sides to break the extra-fluffiness that they now have. They both are not as innocent as they look when they're together, and I wish to see them showing their dark sides to each other.

@Ane - I understand now. Actually, I don't disagree with you on them showing the darker aspects of themselves to one another. I just don't think that Je-ha needs to betray Anna in order to do that. In actuality, they have already done that to a small degree. Remember Anna saw Je-ha holding a gun to Yoo-jin's head threatening to kill her. That was not exactly a bright and shining moment for him. Anna then screamed for him to do it, to shoot her, also not a fluffy and cute moment for her. These two started out their relationship having had a glimpse of the darkness inside one another.
Right now they are in the beginning of romance stage, and that is often cute and fluffy and silly. It when we show only the best of ourselves to the person we love. Eventually, that wears of because we can't sustain that indefinitely. Unfortunately, Anna and Je-ha aren't going to be able to enjoy that stage for long before reality comes crashing in on them. Based on the ending of this episode, I think that will be next episode. What I hope is that they become mirrors for each other. So that when Je-ha sees Anna's dark nature seeking revenge he will first want to stop her from traveling that dark road and then realize he is headed down the same road. I hope Anna will have the same type of revelation about Je-ha.
In some aspects, Anna and Je-ha are very similar. When they each see the person they love making bad choices, headed toward being evil, they will want to stop that person. Then comes the realization that if they want to continue to love that person and be with that person they will also have to turn away from the dark side, so to speak.

I really help this drama proceeds along these lines as I definitelt enjoyed seeing the darker version of Go Anna go up against Yoo Jin.

I think there has been a shift in Je Ha's character in that he now has agreed to kill Park Kwan Soo, not to avenge Rania, but to save Anna.

@Ane I am with you regarding JH+YJ. I also feel that this relationship is more intense and I like how JH is with her - dark, mature and twisted. It's way more sexy than sweet with Anna. But I guess we will be disappointed as I don't think that will happen.

Recapper said last week that Mr. Park isn't doing enough to create any threat for Yoo Jin. Ep 9-10 happens. wow. Yoo Jin's offense is blown away. Now Yoo Jin is fighting for survival, leave alone the defense. That was major blow. Mr. Park has, with few ofscreen tricks, completely destroyed the Yoo Jin's election campaign.

That white hair old gay and police man has chosen other side. President's party members are looking upto Mr. Park and Se Joon is now facing investigation. Se Joon was about to join President's party but now that is also out of option. Check Mate done.

Mr. Park and that father-in-law combi is real force to reckoned with.

Only danger is Je Ha and Mr. Park has taken care of it via that White-hair guy. In a few days Mr. Park turned the tables and can claim the title of president in future.

I don't think we will see any elections but a timeskip is quite possible.

I wonder if they'll do one of those fakeouts where the main man (Jeha) appears to get killed off, causing the person he left behind (Anna) to either 1. vow revenge, or 2. spiral into depression until the main man returns. I do hope it is the first option.
Or Yoojin could make me even more conflicted and pull a "save Jeha" move.

Or we can just forget everyone and give the martial arts teacher and the doctor a happy church wedding, with choir music in the background.

I liked Anna in this episode, she's definitely grown from the girl running around in a nightgown on the streets of spain to being able to look Yoo Jin in the eye and make a not-so-subtle but subtle threat.

On the other and…that kiss was SO AWKWARD!? It wasn't the lack of chemistry bc I do feel chemistry between them but just the timing and location was SO WEIRD. Why, in the middle of the living room, with onlookers, would you choose to have your first kiss!?!!

Anyway, JCW keeps delivering so I'm going to keep watching

One of the things that bugs me about me this show is how random scenes are dragged...like the ramyun scene...in this case the walking under the blanket thing was initially cute then it beca,e lone and awkward which then ended with the most awkward kiss of all time. I must say that I was not a fan of the kiss. But like everyone else has said, the Yoojin send off was heartfelt and drew you in! When he walked towards her it almost looked like he couldn't help himself, he was drawn to her too....that scene would have killed me if he'd reached out and caressed her face (kiss her) but now I'm venturing into second lead syndrome land. I kinda wish she was his girl and he was coming back to her.... Oh well, I'll take JCW smoldering gazes anyway I can get them?

I still think were are being played and Yoojin may not be the big bad. Maybe Uncle? Yes, she is doing some bad things, but I feel like she was somehow forced into her current situation and she is using her "mirror" and minions to 1. Keep control over the situation at hand and 2. Eventually bring down the actual bad guys if possible.

I may be 100% off the mark, but I haven't been shaken from that belief quite yet. We'll find out soon enough.

@growingbeautifully, wave 2 u.
@Lord Cobol, loved your comment at #2, and the rest who response. so witty and humourous.

well, its not just Yongpal 2. Its Healer 2, Its Descendant of Son2.
This K2... is exactly "2" of every hit-dramas.
Healer2--- you can find literally Seo Junghoo single handed taking down legions of hounds, and finding him peeping at his "youngshin" (Anna here) thru CCTV, shadowing her in night.
Yongpal2 ---you can find Yongpal damsel in distress (tortured by evil guardian) breaking thru from a Snow-white Angel image and the very high-tec glass confinement.
Descendant2-- shamefully displaying 'perfect male body specimens" in shower scene, when the fight scene can be done in gymn or just some locker-room. and the UN-like armies in Middle-East back-drop, seeing JCW in armies clothes is so Captain Big Boss...

in short, K2 is a "2" of every Hit-dramas' fav scenes put together.

did not enjoy this week's episodes. i really didn't expect the romance to develop this quickly (if at all), and for me, it just really threw off the whole balance of the show. suddenly too much anna. yoona still doesn't have too much to do, but what more she had to do this week showed off her still-deficient acting capabilities.

yoo-jin/song yoon-ah is still killing it, though i hate to see her under siege.

the thought crossed my mind that perhaps ceo gook will turn on yoo-jin, or has already turned. it occurred to me that maybe this is all a trap for yoo-jin and je-ha. park already knows of je-ha, and i wondered if this isn't a ruse to lure je-ha into park's clutches, helped by ceo gook (who was all for attacking park).

lee jung-jin is also killing it as sung-hoon. i still don't think his character is quite an even match for yoo-jin, because i do fear for him should his plan crumble. yoo-jin would roast him at best. but it makes me wonder if that light, joking front is just that, a front.

i think this is something i must have missed, but does yoo-jin own JSS? JSS is a security firm, right? but how did she manage to get JSS to provide security for JB Group? they're there to keep an eye on things at JB, but how would she have gotten JB to agree to it?

her father must not have abandoned her completely if she still has all this wealth and power, despite what she says to the contrary in public (that she gave up her inheritance when she married her husband). but wouldn't someone have dug into this and exposed it already?

maybe there's something i'm missing?

Something I am kinda pining for in this show is a bit more of Je Ha's background. A) Je Ha isn't even his name, is it? So what is? B) I feel like there was so much more implied of him in the first couple of episodes, more than just the Raniya plot, which is fine and all, but that can't be it, right? C) What happened to the Special Ops flashbacks? Okay they were awkward and all, but he clearly has PTSD, but that's not touched on enough. D) Where did he come from before the Army? Flesh him out a bit more, you know?
Also, why did I feel he didn't really do much for most of Ep 9 and 10? Why isn't he attacking the various people he clearly doesn't trust himself, using you know, his Special Ops skills and doing some background work of his own? I really want him to break into Cloud 9 on his own and find stuff out. What he finds out, no idea, I don't think the plot is developed enough for that but a girl can dream.

Also, in the first episode, before he left Anna, he went inside a car before he eventually collapsed. I'm not sure if it was already answered as to who brought him back to Korea.

I know the writing sucks and there's only a slim chance that this is going to be similar, but the "we don't know Jeha's name" part reminds me of the bodyguard in Artemis Fowl. His name is just Butler.

The elite bodyguards choose a name upon graduation from their school. They're not allowed to be attached to their charges and keeping their name secret is one of the ways to do that.

SPOILERS FOR ARTEMIS FOWL. DON'T READ THIS COMMENT. THE BOOK IS AWESOME GO READ IT INSTEAD.

Butler is as badass and awesome and dryly funny as Jeha (and better written) but we never find out his real name throughout the whole book. Butler only revealed his name to the boy he's guarding when he was dying, when it wouldn't matter anymore that Artemis knows Butler's name.

But it mattered, GADDAMMIT! It f*cking mattered, Butler, how dare you make me cry again??? ;______;

I thought I would drop this drama, then I see JCW's face, SYA's face (and YoonA's face too), and I feel the urge of watching the drama again. And once I watched it, I couldn't help but feel uneasy with how the story and the relationships developed. Then I thought I would drop this drama... haha

Anyway, I am a little bit disappointed with how writer-nim developed YJ's characters in recent episodes. I am thankful that we got to see a more humane sides of her, but I hope it had not come at the cost of her capability in this political war. It seemed like YJ is not as smart and scary as I had thought. She is, in fact, too emotional and too easy to be triggered. A lot of her decisions recently were made from her in-the-moment emotions, rather than from a clear and strategical mind. While this vulnerability of her made me sympathize, sometimes I feel like she is wayyyy tooooo vulnerable to be really win this battle where everyone is her rival. She would have died many times already had K2 not been in her side. Hold it together and be smart again, YJ!

Thanks gummimochi!

On a different tack.... I'm intrigued by the makeup or lack thereof and in the method of applying it in this show. It crops up again and again. Is this a subtle (one of the few subtle things if any) play on the idea of camouflage, layering on the acceptable image or being politically correct in exposing one's flaws ie not covering one's face?

I've had some thoughts on the shine of Yoo Jin's face, which in the earlier episodes has been obvious and distracting, especially since hers is about the only face that is so thoroughly un-powdered (or did they oil her skin instead?) and reflective. So much so that when she's no longer 'shiny', it becomes conspicuous by it's absence

I understand, that she was told by the PD that she would not have make up on for The K2. Does anyone know why? If it was to project the image of openness and vulnerability, at a time when she was on top of the game, then what does it say now that in the last 2 or more episodes, the shine has gone, she has been shockingly losing ground, her flaws are being revealed and she has become even more unhinged? Has she chosen to start covering up more as she becomes truly as vulnerable as she once wanted to appear to be?

And Anna now is 'joining' the makeup and getting into the limelight game. Can she be be the child of a wolf, out for revenge against YJ and not transform from 'Raniya' to 'Park Kwan Soo'?

BTW, is that style of applying powder by dabbing carefully with a puff the style you'd choose? Personally, I cannot apply powder or make-up, (liquid, powder or cream), by dabbing it on like that. It takes too long and doesn't come out even!!!

That's a great point you bring up about the use of makeup in this show. When we saw Anna and Yoo-jin being made-up, I did momentarily wonder if they were both prepping for battle.

As for the makeup itself, you might notice that the brands they're using pop up among the drama's sponsors. Integrating PPL into the drama, as every drama does, it seems.

Lastly, perhaps your fellow beanies can help you out with Song Yoon-ah's comment! Hope you can find an answer.

Hey, great to hear from you, gummimochi!

That's the most probable reason! PPL of course (LOL).

Still, the thought kept surfacing and I meant to include what you said above with my comment, but now is as good a time as any [words made bold by me]:
"She’s been losing a lot of ground in this ongoing war, and her anger and fear threaten to boil over the thin mask she puts on to hide them."

I was going to agree with this thought and idea of the 'thin mask' - that the expressions that peek out and which she suppresses are somewhat linked to her makeup/lack of makeup and what she's hiding from the world. As the makeup thickens (if it thickens) does it mean that she hides more or is more prepped for battle... and as matters go out of control, will she start to lose more of herself, and hide this truth from herself as well?

What I would love... Je Ha gets to save her from herself as well as Anna. Yeah, that'll be the ending for me!

I want to give my unconditional love for this drama, but.. there are too many flash back (unnecessary, too long flash back), 5 minutes recall for past episodes in the beginning is also annoying, and those super slow and long scenes (ramyun, running in the beach, walking to the house).. Gahhh.. I wait a week for story development but what I get is repetitive scenes that I just seen yesterday or a few minutes ago.

I like the intrigue, I also like Jeha and Anna, they are too adorable for my screen.. but hopefully the director or the writernim won't drag that unnecessary scenes..

And despite all that, I'll still wait for friday to come, coz Ji Chang Wook what you've done to me.

If they were going to assasinate PKS, why are they wearing their JSS uniform? its like telling the world that Yoojin order the assasination. And im curious how will Jeha do it, he cant kill right? PTSD.

This is not a well written show tbh but the acting is so good and the chemistry between the cast is amazing.

people who loved yoojin should have view the drama as the drama show themselves and not looked at the drama you want them to be, that subtle hints probably not hints at all,

The tense they have, almost made we think that they could kiss anytime. You know kissing without any romance feeling, but due to desire? LOL go away my crazy mind.

Everyone but Je-ha is dismissed, and Yoo-jin says affectionately, “Je-ha-yah. You can turn back if you think the situation is too dangerous.” He asks where this sudden concern is coming from, but she needn’t worry—he got rid of that email long ago.

“Je-ha-yah…” she repeats.

It seems that she's about to say more but decided not to. I can feel that she is sorry towards him but maybe she just decided not to blurt it out coz he asked why is she acting like that which isn't like her. She might have said more but just kept it to herself coz that's the facade everyone saw in her and she still have to at least continue it as like that. She's viewed by the characters in the drama as someone who is dangerous and who doesn't feel remorse and compassion towards others but we as viewers are being hinted that her facade isn't always so with her expressions.

What are the chances that Representative Park has JeHa's ex-comrades(those that betrayed him) as his guards. JeHa shoukd prepare for some serious whup-ass!!
I wont put past YooJin and Chief Kim to make a play at Anna now that she is back at hidden house.
JeHa has ptsd but would it actually be glorious for a slow agonizing punishment handed to Chief Kim.
When YooJin and JeHa were conversing, she was so embarrassing fawning over him, i was shouting 'cougar' in my head. And is JeHa oblivious? Why doesn't he shut her down? When she was closing the distance between them i was literally expecting another kiss scene albeit 'yuck'-factor and going 'no no' on the repeat. Whew close call. Ducked that one!!!
YooJin brings out tears the moment someone looks cross at her.

Seriously, they are going to kill park kwan soo? That's the best thing they could come up with? What about that dealing where raniya got killed? Why they can't order je ha to collect info about that? I am pretty sure that would have been equally dangerous for him to do but only smarter.

Even if park kwan soo dies a natural death, jang se joon will be the first suspect as such. The show itself acknowledged it when yoo jin was in the hospital and the reporters asked whether park kwan soo was behind it. Now they are going to kill him using an army, even if whatever park kwan soo is planning doesn't get se joon arrested, this definitely will. Also what did park kwan soo do with je ha's info? They showed it like its a big thing, I expected to see something about it this week. Maybe its related to kwan soo's trump card.

Also the whole covering yourself to not feel scared, I have no idea how that works. I liked the phone conversation and it would have showed that they cared for each other even without the kiss. It would have been better if they made them kiss towards the end, it feels too soon.
Also, doesn't je ha carry a handkerchief everywhere, they could have atleast showed him tying it around his face to make it more credible during the poisonous gas scene.

LOL I agree. A very stupid plan and writing,. Killing PKS won't stop anything, and will add more problems.

It seems like the order goes out from someone to kill someone else every single episode. It's like it's the default option. Someone knows something? Kill 'em! Someone heard something? Kill 'em! Seen something? Kill 'em! And oh yes, it's supposed to protect a secret (which everyone in JSS from the head guy to the cleaning staff seems to know anyway) so let's do it in the most public way possible. Like shooting Anna in the head in front of a crowd and live on social media. Or filling an entire building with nerve gas to take out two people. Does it get any more clandestine than that? Come on, people, use your words! We have evolved with voice boxes for a reason.

This show is a comedy, right? Cause it's pretty funny.

LOL..haha..Yeah.that's why I fast forward a lot of scenes too. Some people get angry if you tell them that a certain scene is waaay overboard and tell you that 'it's just a drama' but that's not the case here. I can pinpoint more than 3 scenes in this episode that doesn't feel right and that's a clear indication of badly written script and wrong execution overall.

I kind of feel sorry for the fans who truly enjoy this drama but since the only other drama with a similar ridiculous production and writing has a way too overwhelming comment section for me, I'll stick to K2. ?
Fans can just keep scrolling. Hehe

Oh.. that drama, I don't watch it but i am pretty sure if we go around commenting like this in that thread, it will either get ignored (best case) or the dedicated fans will probably bite our heads off. But, I wish this drama was atleast compelling that way. That we get obsessed with it despite the flaws. But, the flaws are just hard to ignore for me. I liked how gummimochi only highlighted the good things in her comments and ended it with a positive note and I wish I could take a leaf out of her book and be that way, but this is really fun to miss. ;)

Nah, there's plenty of jokes in ____ thread. They make fun of everything from the horrible wigs to the BB cream.

That is the comedy part of the show. You as a viewer flip table every 5 minutes. Nonsense is the comedy part. That's why this show doesn't any forced humour. This show clearly is parody of all action shows out there.

LOL. It's like similar to Helena Bonham Carter's character as the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland. She goes "off with their heads" every time something/someone pisses her off. An innocent poster hanger accidentally seeing Se Joon in a compromising position? YJ orders him killed, together with the people that he has around him. Anna about to go public? Let's have her killed also. Sung Won taking Anna away? YJ goes, oh, I almost had your wife killed. PKS now having the upperhand in the presidential race? Yeah, let's send our mercenary K2 and JSS security to take him down.

I assume it must be a parody, it would not make any sense at all otherwise. There is just SO MUCH stupid going on in this show. One of the more stupid things was when he gave her a walkie talkie (why did he have two?), and then they proceed to have conversations that anyone can hear. This show is just so freaking stupid...

@Windsun. I agree the script doesn't seem that well thought through. I thought he had prepared the extra walkie talkie for Anna since he has to be by her side protecting her the whole time. As for their public conversation, I doubt they care at this point after the blanket seen infront of everyone.

One thing I like about this show is that they aren't going for the all-to-common trope of the underdog vs overwhelmingly powerful evil with unlimited resources so we must pull a huge rabbit out of the hat at the end. This time it's not just underdog vs chaebol but a 4-way chess game: Yoo-jin vs Park Gwan-Soo vs Sung-Won vs Anna+k2. Four-and-a-half way if you count Se-Joon. Also, during the interview it almost seemed like Anna was the powerful one with unlimited tricks up her sleeve, and Yoo-jin was the underdog. Can I say "underbitch" ?

Talk about The Most Random Kiss Scene I've ever seen in my kdrama viewing experience.
At the end of this episode, I'm 100% sure that Je Ha won't die. Why would you kill your main hero, 6 Episodes before the finale? This made me miss the greatness that is 'Signal' where all three main characters took turns in dying and that was suprisingly superbly done.

He won't die but I have a feeling they'll pull a missing person trope and have us wondering for an episode or two whether he's alive or not.
