Suspicious Partner: Episodes 25-26

Ji-wook has been the principled man thus far, but when push comes to shove, it turns out that he isn’t the type of man to sit back while those he cares about are threatened. He’s sick and tired of feeling yanked around and afraid, and now it’s time for action—but that action may come at a cost, and I’m not sure the price is worth it.

 
EPISODE 25 RECAP

Chief Bang visits one of the men in Chan-ho’s photo, but he finds the guy dead in his apartment. He’s attacked by a man in black, who leaves him bleeding to death from a stab wound in the belly. Before he goes, the man takes off his face mask — and it’s Hyun-soo.

Ji-wook finds Chief Bang in a pool of blood and calls the paramedics, who rush him into an ambulance — he’s alive! Meanwhile Eun-hyuk picks up Bong-hee and they rush to the hospital, calling Yoo-jung on the way. Bong-hee asks worriedly if Chief Bang will be okay, and Eun-hyuk struggles to say that he’ll be fine.

Ji-wook rides in the ambulance, still crying and apologizing to Chief Bang for not coming sooner. Even as he’s outwardly apologizing, Ji-wook’s inner voice says in self-recrimination, “A pointless apology. A pointless regret.” Ji-wook starts to cry in earnest, pleading with his friend not to die, and his tearful face fades to his younger self, sobbing in a fiery room as his father dies next to him.

At the hospital, he stays with Chief Bang’s gurney until he’s stopped at the entrance to the operating room. He thinks about Hyun-soo, certain that this must be his handiwork, and his sorrow turns to fury. Ji-wook screams Hyun-soo’s name at the top of his lungs and pounds the wall with his fist.

He’s calmer by the time Eun-hyuk and Bong-hee arrive, though he’s still covered in Chief Bang’s blood. When Yoo-jung gets there, Ji-wook asks her to personally investigate what happened, telling her not to rely on the police. He says that Hyun-soo is the primary suspect, but that it won’t be easy to find evidence because he knows how to cover his tracks and not leave forensic evidence.

He’s clearly struggling to keep it together, his sentences increasingly disjointed and meandering, and they all look worried about him. Finally Yoo-jung tells him to leave everything regarding the investigation to her, and Eun-hyuk adds that right now, they need to focus on Chief Bang.

Yoo-jung goes directly to the scene of the murder and Chief Bang’s attack to get a first look. She tells the police to get her the films from every CCTV camera in the area.

CEO Byun arrives at the hospital too, and the law firm family waits together nervously until the surgeon emerges from surgery to talk to them. He explains that Chief Bang’s spleen was injured, but they’ve stopped the bleeding. Everyone sighs with relief, but there’s bad news — there was so much bleeding that Chief Bang’s brain was deprived of oxygen, so there’s the possibility of brain damage. Oh no.

CEO Byun uncharacteristically thinks positive, assuring everyone that Chief Bang is strong and that he’ll be fine. But Ji-wook looks shocked as he tries to process this new danger to his friend, so Eun-hyuk sits with him and puts a comforting arm around his shoulders. Still, there’s something new and very dark in Ji-wook’s eyes.

Hyun-soo meets with a guy who’s wearing his black jacket and driving his motorcycle, and he confirms that the man did everything he asked. Earlier in the day Hyun-soo had hired him to make a certain delivery at a certain time, directing him not to take off the helmet and to speak as little as possible.

As he explained the task, Hyun-soo had thought, “You’re going to become me. From now until tonight, you’re going to be my perfect alibi.” Ah, so he set it up so that it would look like he was making deliveries at the time of the murder. He’d even given the man his cell phone with instructions to send a text message at a particular time.

In split screen, we see his alibi being made by his backup while Hyun-soo was actually attacking Chief Bang. The man had made sure to be caught on CCTV cameras as he made his delivery, per Hyun-soo’s instructions.

Now the man reports back to Hyun-soo, recalling every single detail he encountered on his errand, which Hyun-soo commits to memory.

Bong-hee follows Ji-wook outside, and when he looks up at her with that lost expression, she sits and pulls his head to her shoulder. She murmurs that Chief Bang will be okay, and Ji-wook sighs that he thought Chief Bang was doing to die, because he couldn’t find a pulse or hear him breathing.

In the morning, Yoo-jung goes to the hospital to check on Chief Bang, who is still stable. She tells Eun-hyuk that she doesn’t have grounds to summon Hyun-soo forcibly, but that she’s summoned him anyway just to see if he’ll comply. She also says that the police officers report that when they arrived on the scene, the look on Ji-wook’s face was frightening, like he was planning to do something.

He’s wearing that same resolute expression now, at home, where he seems to make a decision. Eun-hyuk tries to stop him on his way out, guessing that Ji-wook’s planning to confront Hyun-soo, but Ji-wook shoves him angrily and says this is none of his business.

Ji-wook asks if he should just sit by and watch as Hyun-soo takes away someone he cares about. He yells that he won’t just watch Chief Bang die, so Eun-hyuk asks if he has a plan. Ji-wook shouts that he has to do something, vowing to make Hyun-soo feel the same regret that he’s feeling right now.

As Eun-hyuk predicted, Hyun-soo responds to Yoo-jung’s summons, who jokes dryly that it’s not so bad without a warrant against him. Yoo-jung asks about his alibi, and Hyun-soo readily offers one, saying that he was working that night and can verify delivery logs.

She notes that he didn’t even have to think about his alibi, but Hyun-soo says that ever since he was framed for Chef Yang’s murder, he tries to remember everything. Without any proof of his guilt, Yoo-jung is obliged to let Hyun-soo go.

While sitting at Chief Bang’s bedside, Ji-wook calls Hyun-soo and invites him to meet up to talk. Then the other three lawyers arrive, and CEO Byun complains that he’s the only one talking to Chief Bang.

He tells a sweet story about how his mother once had an accident, rendering her unconscious, and his normally taciturn father would talk to his wife constantly. Then came the day when his mother woke, and she’d said that she had to wake up because that man was too loud. HAHA.

They all go on alert when Hyun-soo enters the room, claiming that he heard about Chief Bang and was worried. Ji-wook says he didn’t expect Hyun-soo to come here, but they go outside to talk. Bong-hee glares and tries to follow them, but Eun-hyuk stops her.

Hyun-soo will only agree to talk over a noisy bridge while standing at a distance, though Ji-wook makes a big show of displaying his jacket pockets to show he’s not secretly taping him. Hyun-soo says that he’s going to be honest, and actually confesses to killing everyone — the bodies in the tank, Hee-joon, and Chef Yang. He’s surprised that Ji-wook isn’t surprised, and Ji-wook casually says that he already knows.

Hyun-soo taunts him, offering up his wrists to be arrested. Ji-wook says that he’ll arrest him soon enough, and Hyun-soo breaks out in amused laughter. Still giggling, he reminds Ji-wook of how passionately he defended him when he was totally guilty of killing Chef Yang.

Ji-wook admits that he regrets that now. He says that if he’d discovered Hyun-soo’s guilt just a bit sooner, then Chan-ho and his friend Jae-ho wouldn’t be dead or missing right now, and Hyun-soo wouldn’t have been able to hurt Chief Bang.

Hyun-soo suddenly looks upset, and he asks if Ji-wook is beginning to know how he feels, to have loved ones threatened. He says that Ji-wook should try to understand him and leave him to his work. Hyun-soo promises that if he does, then he’ll leave Ji-wook and his friends alone. He even holds out a hand to shake on it, but Ji-wook slaps it away.

Hyun-soo mutters that Ji-wook must not understand how he feels after all, and he wonders what he should do to make him understand. Seeing that Ji-wook isn’t swayed at all, Hyun-soo says, “I should just kill them all,” then walks away.

Back at the hospital, Bong-hee paces nervously, then rushes out of the room. She runs into Eun-hyuk in the hall and says that she has to go to Ji-wook, but he explains that Ji-wook invited Hyun-soo here. He reveals that it’s a ploy to give Eun-hyuk time to dig up a few things, and idly hopes that Ji-wook doesn’t get hurt too badly.

We see what he means when Ji-wook follows Hyun-soo and punches him dead in the face. Hyun-soo is so surprised that Ji-wook gets in another punch, then kicks him to the ground. He invites Hyun-soo to fight back, and when Hyun-soo lands a solid punch, Ji-wook looks like he just got exactly what he wanted.

 
EPISODE 26 RECAP

Bong-hee and Eun-hyuk are called to the police station where Ji-wook and Hyun-soo have been arrested (ha, they both look pretty sheepish). Ji-wook is refusing to agree to settle the matter simply, pointing to a tiny little boo-boo on his lip and whining that it hurts too much. The annoyed detective says that they can just cool their heels in jail.

That evening Eun-hyuk drives Bong-hee somewhere, asking mysteriously if she’ll join him in doing something bad. Earlier he’d visited Ji-wook in his holding cell, and Ji-wook had told him to find whatever he can. Eun-hyuk asked what he should do if he finds nothing, knowing how meticulous Hyun-soo is.

On his way out, Eun-hyuk had accidentally-on-purpose spilled the basket holding Hyun-soo’s belongings to the floor. He’d picked them up, secretly pocketing Hyun-soo’s keys in the process.

Eun-hyuk and Bong-hee arrive at Hyun-soo’s apartment, where Eun-hyuk holds up the keys triumphantly. They let themselves in to find an apartment that’s small but neat as a pin, and they set about carefully searching for any clues or evidence.

When nothing turns up, Eun-hyuk remembers Ji-wook telling him that if he can’t find anything, then they need to fabricate a murder weapon that has Hyun-soo’s fingerprints on it. He takes a large butcher knife from Hyun-soo’s kitchen, bags it, and hides it in his pocket before Bong-hee sees him.

At the hospital, CEO Byun talks to the still-unconscious Chief Bang. He tells him that they’re all trying to catch the person who did this and begs him to wake up. Awww, he’s a total marshmallow.

Ji-wook and Hyun-soo finally settle in the morning, and they’re released. They stop to glare at each other for a moment, then go their separate ways.

Back at the office, Eun-hyuk outlines the idea to put blood from Chief Bang and the dead man on the stolen knife, though he reminds Ji-wook that this is very illegal. He says that Ji-wook could be fined or jailed, and would definitely lose his law license if he’s caught.

Ji-wook says he knows, but he still plans to do this. He asks what else they can do when Hyun-soo admitted to the murders but they can’t find a single piece of evidence. He refuses to stand by while Hyun-soo kills as he pleases, but agrees to save the knife as a last-ditch measure after they try everything else they possibly can.

Eun-hyuk says that he’ll be the one to plant the fake evidence, arguing that it fits his reputation anyway, while Ji-wook used to be known as the morally righteous prosecutor. Ji-wook starts to insist that he do it since it was his idea, but Bong-hee’s voice chimes in, “I should do it.”

She reasons that she’s already been to prison, so a second time won’t make a big difference. She adds that she should be the one to plant the knife because this is all her fault for bringing Hyun-soo into their lives. The guys are stunned silent.

Ji-wook’s voice narrates that they all have their own reasons for feeling responsible for Chief Bang almost getting killed, and each one sits at his bedside looking burdened by guilt. The night of his stabbing, CEO Byun had canceled plans to go out drinking with Chief Bang, which gave Chief Bang the time to go out investigating.

Eun-hyuk feels responsible too, because earlier that day he’d heard Chief Bang talking to someone about the man’s identity. He knew Chief Bang was looking into the guy even after being told not to, yet he didn’t do anything to stop him.

Bong-hee’s feeling guilty too and gives in to her tears as she sinks to her heels. Ji-wook crouches beside her and says softly that they should stop blaming themselves and each other for what happened. Bong-hee had thought she was the only one beating herself up, and knowing that she’s not alone makes her feel better.

Hyun-soo listens to music as he goes for a walk, and stops to sit on the stone bleachers near a school. Turning his head, he sees a teenage girl in a school uniform, the same girl he saw that time in the park. She smiles at him happily, but his answering smile is heartrendingly sad. After a moment she fades away, leaving Hyun-soo alone. He starts to cry, and when he eventually stands to go, he leaves behind a beautiful purple rose.

He heads home, where he immediately notices that some of his belongings are out of place. They’re only tiny differences, but Hyun-soo’s ability to notice the finest details make them stand out like beacons. He realizes that his fight with Ji-wook and overnight jail stay was a trick to get him out of the way, and he mutters, “This is fun.”

Bong-hee tells the team and Yoo-jung that she followed up on Hyun-soo’s alibi for the day Chief Bang was attacked. The woman who received the delivery reported that the driver didn’t remove his helmet or say a word, so Bong-hee concludes that Hyun-soo must have used a substitute.

Yoo-jung argues that even so, the CCTV footage and Hyun-soo’s cell phone location line up with his story, calling it a perfect alibi. Ji-wook asks about the autopsy on the second body from the water tank, but Yoo-jung says that the body was so damaged that they couldn’t find any evidence linking it to Hyun-soo.

Bong-hee also shows them a list of names and addresses that she found on Chief Bang’s desk. All the names on the list are connected with Chan-ho, so Eun-hyuk suggests that they look into this.

Yoo-jung reminds them that they’re civilians and tells them to pass the information to her. She idly wishes that the murder weapon would be found (to make her job easier), and Bong-hee, Eun-hyuk, and Ji-wook exchange loaded glances.

Later, while visiting Chief Bang, Ji-wook gets a text from an unknown number. It’s just a series of pictures — one of Chief Bang in his hospital bed and two of Bong-hee, taken from a distance. Ah, a threat.

Instantly furious, Ji-wook rushes out of the hospital, and the moment he exits he hears Hyun-soo call his name. He turns to see Hyun-soo grinning at him, and when they find a private place to talk Ji-wook slams him against the wall.

Hyun-soo motions for Ji-wook to let him go, so he does, but he turns right back around to pin him again. He growls that they agreed to leave each other alone, but Hyun-soo just laughs and asks if that’s why Ji-wook went through his home.

He asks why Ji-wook keeps challenging him, adding that he wouldn’t have gone this far if Ji-wook had done his job properly in the first place. He snarls that if lawyers didn’t keep locking up the innocent and letting the guilty go free, then he’d never have become like this. With a sigh, Hyun-soo says that he’s only doing what’s right, and actually sounds like he believes it.

Going down Chief Bang’s list of names, Eun-hyuk shows one man the pictures of the murdered chef, Hyun-soo, and Chan-ho with his friends, but the man only knows Chan-ho. Bong-hee has better luck with another guy who knew Chef Yang. He tells her that there were rumors that Chef Yang went to study abroad in high school after causing trouble here in Korea.

A third man tells Eun-hyuk that he doesn’t recognize anyone in the photos. He asks why everyone is looking into the past all of a sudden, saying that he’s just curious because Chief Bang had been calling him too. Eun-hyuk doesn’t quite seem to believe him.

That night Ji-wook stares at the knife Eun-hyuk stole from Hyun-soo’s apartment. He recalls how District Attorney Jang planted a bloody knife in Bong-hee’s home, convinced that proving her guilty justified framing her to be certain she was caught.

Then Ji-wook remembers what Hyun-soo said when confronted about his prior assault conviction. Hyun-soo hadn’t seen anything wrong with beating the man to a pulp, confident he was doing the right thing by delivering justice to the guilty.

Ji-wook decides to dispose of the stolen knife. He tells Eun-hyuk and Bong-hee that they’ll never use it, tossing it in his desk drawer and declaring that they’re going to do this honestly—otherwise, they’re no better than the criminals themselves. Eun-hyuk and Bong-hee both agree.

They’re worried that Hyun-soo is planning another strike, moving on to the next victim in his revenge plan. Ji-wook guesses that it will be someone who got off lightly, or even entirely, for a crime. Eun-hyuk says that someone he spoke to from Chief Bang’s list keeps popping up in his mind.

A while later, Bong-hee finds Ji-wook sitting with his head hanging, and she takes his hand and tells him that he made the right decision. She says she’s proud of him, and he rests his cheek on her hand, taking the comfort she offers.

The third man (who told Eun-hyuk that he didn’t recognize anyone in the photos) walks down the street, muttering that Chef Yang and Jae-ho both died, and Chan-ho is missing. A worrying thought hits him, but he shakes it aside, not seeing someone watching from behind—Hyun-soo.

A gloved hand removes the knife from Ji-wook’s desk drawer. We don’t see a face, only that the person gets into Hyun-soo’s apartment and slips the now-bloody knife back into the chopping block.

Yoo-jung receives an anonymous text message and immediately begs a superior to get her a warrant. He says that he can’t issue a warrant without evidence. Next Yoo-jung calls Ji-wook, and whatever she says has him running to his desk and frantically searching the drawers for the knife. But he comes up empty.

Yoo-jung somehow gets her warrant and goes to Hyun-soo’s apartment. He’s upset when the officers trash his place, and he follows Yoo-jung into the kitchen. When she pulls the knife from the block and sees the blood, he laughs incredulously and mutters Ji-wook’s name.

Then he makes a break for it, jumping onto his motorcycle and taking off. Yoo-jung follows in a cop car, and Ji-wook spots the chase as he drives in and joins in. A third car follows close behind — it’s the third man our team talked to, whom Hyun-soo was following earlier.

Meanwhile at the hospital, CEO Byun notices Chief Bang’s hand moving, and he clutches it excitedly.

Hyun-soo leads a wild chase through the streets, weaving dangerously between cars. He’s so focused on losing those behind him that he doesn’t see a car approaching him at a cross street. Car and motorcycle collide at full speed, and Hyun-soo tumbles over the hood of the car.

The car that hit him peels away from the scene of the accident, but not before we see that the driver is the man Hyun-soo was following.

Hyun-soo lies motionless in the street. Ji-wook jumps out of his car and stares in shock as he realizes that Hyun-soo isn’t getting up.

Epilogue.

Ji-wook runs into Bong-hee holding a plate piled with tofu. She says it’s for him now that he’s out of jail (eating tofu is customary upon prison release, as a superstition to ward off future visits), but he complains about the taste and refuses to eat it.

Bong-hee insists that he take this advice from someone with prison experience. Ji-wook eats a teeny tiny pinch, but she’s not satisfied until he takes a huge bite. He makes a childish yuckyface while Bong-hee beams happily.

COMMENTS

Is it strange that I’m desperately hoping that Hyun-soo is okay? I think Hyun-soo must be the boldest drama murderer ever… to walk into the hospital room of his latest victim, knowing that everyone in that room is certain he’s the killer, takes some pretty serious you-know-whats. I can’t help but respect his attention to detail with the way he made sure to concoct a solid alibi this time. Ji-wook and Bong-hee are going to have a very difficult time convincing anyone that he’s guilty. Most people would expect a murderer to stay far, far away from the people that are trying to prove his guilt, so they’d never believe that this soft-spoken man could possibly be a cold-blooded killer.

But he can also be terribly sympathetic — I have this sinking feeling that Hyun-soo’s motive for the killings is going to be heartbreaking, which will only make him harder to completely vilify. He has a dark, chilling menace, but he still manages to make me ache with sorrow when he grieves his lost girl. I can’t wait to find out who she was (I’m guessing either a girlfriend or a sister) and what happened to her.

It was very telling when he told Ji-wook that it’s the fault of those who let the guilty go free that he’s like this, which reinforces my guess that something happened to his lost girl, and that the guilty parties didn’t pay for their crime. This makes Hyun-soo a killer as a result of tragic circumstances rather than any inborn evil, and he would probably be living a normal life if he hadn’t experienced a devastating loss. He’s not a sociopath, he’s just a boy who loved a girl and went crazy when he lost her. All of this complexity, combined with Dong-ha’s brilliant performance as the tragically tarnished white knight, is causing him to quickly become my favorite drama villain ever.

One positive result of Hyun-soo’s actions is that Ji-wook appears to be finally accepting Eun-hyuk, and even working with him. I loved their elaborate plan to get Hyun-soo jailed overnight so that Eun-hyuk could search his apartment. I wasn’t so thrilled with the part of the plan that involved framing Hyun-soo, because planting evidence as if the ends justifies the means would make them no better than District Attorney Jang. Yes, Hyun-soo is guilty and he even admits it, but Ji-wook and Eun-hyuk can’t afford to make a mistake that could result in Hyun-soo going free for a second murder. Not to mention, it’s just wrong, and they’re better than that. They are more than capable of finding something to prove Hyun-soo’s guilt without resorting to illegal measures, now that they’re putting aside their past and working together.

So it begs the question — who did plant the knife in Hyun-soo’s apartment? Eun-hyuk and Bong-hee were the only ones who knew of the original plan and where Ji-wook stashed the knife. It’s possible Ji-wook made a big show of saying they would never stoop to such measures to throw them off the scent so he could do it himself, but by his reaction when he realized the knife was gone, I doubt it. Whoever did it was a man, judging by the clothing we could see, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the truth isn’t going to be as simple as it seems. I do have a theory on who it could be, but it’s pretty out-there so I hesitate to say quite yet. But if I’m right, it could change everything.

For a moment I had an inkling that it's CEO Byun because of the way the person walked when we were shown only the legs and feet. However, it does not compute. How in the world he got wind of that knife? I'm too emotional to form a coherent guess at the moment.

My guess is CEO Byun because in this episode they've shown him always "sleeping" my guess is that he overheard about their plan and he decided to take the blame since he's older than the "kids", who still have a long future ahead and can't afford to lose their licenses.. but ye, this is just my guess.. haha

My vote is also for CEO Byun... They've already shown that there were times he was in Ji Wook's home without them noticing, and his confession by Chief Bang's bedside shows that he feels some responsibility, especially over the younger ones. I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to take matters into his own hands. I'm just scared of what the consequences might be.

Another far-fetched theory (that would break my heart so I hope I'm wrong)... What if CEO Byun had something to do with Ji Wook's (and Bong Hee's) parents' deaths?!?!? Ugh like I said I hope I'm wrong.

call me crazy... what if it is Chief though? What if he woke up and planned it with the CEO since nobody would suspect a bedridden patient? though I doubt he could move this early, but I wouldnt put it past this drama if we drop our jaws a few more times... nah, it is too improbable, right? I am just thinking crazy. he wouldnt be able to walk and how would he slip out unnoticed.

I also thought the same. The pants of the knife-planter are also too long and loose and EH pants seem more close-fitting. JW was too surprised by the missing knife to be the culprit. I wish he had rinsed out the knife and thrown it away. I was really annoyed when he was like "we're not going to use this. I'm going to throw this away" and then proceeded to put it in a drawer. That's just too much temptation. Should have rinse it out and tossed it into the trash. I don't want CEO Byun to get in trouble!

Thanks for the recap! Our romance definitely took a backseat in this episode, but we got so much suspense and plot movement on our murder case that I didn't find myself minding too much.

-I was celebrating when we found out Chief Bang is still alive. And then I went right back to crying because if JW is crying I can't help myself.
-I was afraid BH would pull away from JW due to her guilt, but thank god she didn't. I love how they're both there for each other, even if it's just a hug or sitting next to each other when they're having a hard time.
-I am LOVING HS as a villain. He has so much conviction and intelligence, and it makes the tension so great. The actor is knocking it out of the park with this character. I feel like I could write a book about how fascinating I find HS.
-Buuuuuut, we will see how HS is in the next episode, because holy crap I did not see that car crash coming. I'll just be waiting on pins and needles until subs come out.

I don't want to see any tears from JW? His internal battle to do the right thing was so sad to watch because we all know that HS is the killer.

I don't like HS but at the same time I pity him so much. That scene with the ghost of a girlfriend/sister was heartbreaking, his gaze just said it all really and as LollyPip said it's too hard to vilify him completely when we know there are circumstances that may be equally just as tragic to bring him to be like this

I'm mixed about my feelings for HS. The problem I have is that far too many dramas let the villain off with a slap on the wrist or we only see them arrested or we see them living comfortably somewhere, or we see someone taking care of them in jail etc. If this was the first drama that I saw that, then sure, I'll pity him a bit. But the man killed and attempted to kill a heck of a lot of people already. If he was a good person before, he clearly has gone down the rabbit hole. That is plain scary.

This episode was amazing and I agree with your mixed feelings. I'm happy that Chief Bang isn't dead, but the problem with his brain is definitely worrying. As for Ji Wook's team, they seem to have the intention of bringing Hyun Soo no matter what it takes. However, that leads to the question of who planted the knife in Hyun Soo's apartment. I don't think it was Ji Wook after the statement so it remains quite a mystery. Furthermore, in Hyun Soo's case, I want to hate him for everything he is doing, but it is harder than it actually seems. I think that in the past, his girlfriend or sister must have had a terrible accident and the lawyers did not do their job of defending her to the end. Nevertheless, my heart does ache for him after seeing that ghost girl, but it does not justify any of his actions. Overall, I guess that killers or murderers are usually victims to circumstances that allow them to commit these horrific crimes.
P.S I am loving how Ji Wook is starting to work with Eun Hyuk now & I totally did not see that ending car crash coming. Mind Blown.

and how would that be different from a dad killing bad guys who have kidnapped his daugther, are going to rape her, sell her off in the prostitution market... and police/law has basically sided with the killer?

WHat do you do?
Sit at home..cry.. keep standng in front of offices with a placard asking for justice.. when evidence probably does not even exist?

Would you have resources including the brain to lay out a "legal" plan to trap the criminal (god knows the time frame to get this executed that too successfully)

This is a mere question- ethical one ofcourse- and by you i just mean anyone..

If your system is corrupt and you or your loved ones have been deeply hurt.. which is not forgivable.. what should one do?

I have mixed feelings too. I'm sure something horrific happened to that girl and justice was not served through legal means. In that way, I'm rooting fofr him to finish the job and am sad at the possibility of him being dead. But, I feel like going ahead to kill people who were not directly involved with that girl's death makes him less human. Why attempt to kill Chief Bang? What additional incriminating info could Chief Bang have gotten from a dead body? He could have confirmed BH really did see him before he killed HJ. He may have started off with noble goals, but I think the journey has twisted him.

Did I see it wrongly, but the guy in the car started driving only after he saw JW reverse and start the chase... did HS by any chance engineer his own incident? With the guy that he tailed? Maybe he didn't want to harm him but make a deal.

I interpreted it that the guy who hit HS did it after realizing that everyone involved in whatever incident was turning up dead. The way they showed HS watching him and his suspicious actions made it seem to me more like he was trying to preserve himself rather than help HS, but I've been wrong about plot points in this show before, haha.

The fact that Hyun Soo was spying on that guy driving the car makes me think that he planned it as well. In the past he could tail people without them knowing it, and his only mistake was that Bong Hee wasn't home the first time and of course assuming that Bong Hee could recognize him from her window. Otherwise he's always been one step ahead of our heroes.

I probably shouldn't be saying this but hot damn, even angry Ji-wook is sexy. And he looked so badass beating the crap out of Hyun-soo.

Am I the only one gearing up for the possibility that it's not Hyun-soo under that helmet? Wouldn't be surprised if writer-nim sneaks another twist on us. I didn't really enjoy this episode because it felt like a filler, but I'm happy to see our foursome get their heads together to catch the culprit.

My guess is that the person who planted the evidence is CEO Byun, judging from the hem of the pants and the shoes. It's not something Ji-wook or Eun-hyuk would wear, given how they've been wearing all these cropped or close-fitted trousers. Orrrr... maybe it's the third man who that Eun-hyuk talked to? Also a far-fetched idea: the father of Bong-hee's dead ex-boyfriend?

Man, this show is keeping me on my toes!

I guess it felt lacking in a way because the episode didn't seem well-rounded to me? There wasn't much of Bong-hee, her scenes/lines barely registered to me, if at all. I also missed the humor and the bit of romance usually present in the episodes. I do understand that this episode's plotline is mostly laying down the foundation of what would be a showdown between Ji-wook vs Hyun-soo or Ji-wook and team vs Hyun-soo, but I wish the pacing went faster so we can get to the heart of it.

Maybe I'm just impatient, or this two episode split thing is finally getting to me. ?

I agree with you about the lack of BH. She really just did a lot of reaction shots and just comforting JW - not a lot of lines. I started this series loving BH and enjoyed seeing the series unfold really through her POV at the beginning of the series. I've been worried that JW has been given priority recently, even though I like him a lot I really hope to see BH being more active in the next episode.

I'm loving this drama, but I have to mention one little thing that is annoying me. The director keeps shooting important scenes through glass shelves. The kissing scenes are shot through glass shelves and now the stabbing of Bang also. It puts annoying lines right through the scene. I'm sure it's meant to be artistic, but it's just irksome.

I liked K2 stylistically. I had problems with the plot like everyone else. The love interest should not have been there, she should have been younger, which would have made more sense (not as a love interest but more as a ward). The er actress they had playing the part is okay but she was easily overshadowed by Song Yoona. I guess I loved the action scenes and the whole "spy service" vibe of the show.

Hyun-Soo is no simple murderer. He plans his every move meticulously and carries it out and outright laughs in the face of law and justice. That incident with that teenage girl probably made him lose all hope in the system and he decided to take things into his own hands. The problem is that he is not concerned about collateral damage and proceeds to eliminate all obstacles that stand in the way of his elaborate revenge plan. He looked almost conflicted when stabbing Chief Bang but still did it anyways.

I find HS really interesting, especially juxtaposed with our vigilante team in Lookout. HS is basically our Lookout team gone terribly wrong - according to him, he or people he loved have been cheated by the justice system, so he's taking the law into his own hands to try to fix things. However, clearly it's not the same to us because his logic regarding retribution is flawed. I really love having such a layered, motivated villain because it makes the conflict so much more interesting than if he were one-note.

i think it's Chanho (lol is he still alive though?) that planted the knife. the legs looks pretty skinny, and the pants that he wears is not the kind that Eunhyuk/Jiwook wore.

and how he get chief bang/lee jaeho blood on the knife?

the saddest part was when Jiwook crying , pleading so that his hyung dont die. when the image faltered to him as a kid, also crying next to his dying dad, he looks like a kid that probably lost almost everything in the flash.

and i dont want Hyunsoo to die. he needs to be convicted with what he did, killing bad people, hurting innocent person, and killing an innocent person.

I've learnt to disregard what promotional materials say about the plot. There have been quite a few dramas whose stories turn out to be quite different from what the promo stated, e.g. Chicago Typewriter. The female lead was described as the main male lead's anti fan...but she was only an anti fan for like what, half an episode? Even for Goblin, the Grim Reaper was described as "amnesiac", but he just couldn't recall his past life or identity...which is the case for everyone, no?
I would be very surprised if the promo description of a character is put into effect so late into the drama...

Chief Bang please have a speedy recovery. I miss your wide smile.

Seeing the gang get together for Chief Bang (and even how they took turns blaming themselves) was such a heartwarming scene. I'm just so glad that Jiwook realized that fabricating evidence is no good. It may take time, but I believe they can dig something up. I was screaming, "Nooo don't go there, guys. You're better than that." Although, once again, it was heartwarming to see Jiwook, Bonghee, and Eunhyuk take turns volunteering to do the dirty work. This gang is just love. Loveeee. I was half-expecting that we'd go down the eternal self-loathing/blaming route, although I understand where each one is coming from, but we did not. Thank goodness.

Now, on to the killer. That dude. That other dude who caused Hyunsoo's accident. I wonder if he's the one who should have been punished but got away... Are we finally going to meet the amnesiac killer? Oh exciting!

Yesssss, this episode!!! So intense, my heart could barely take it! There were so many great moments, but, mostly, I'm just so pumped for where the last few minutes of the episode will take us!

Will he finally get that amnesia or will something worse have happened? It will be really compelling to see where this mess with the tampered evidence will lead, since their temptation to throw honor away for the sake of justice played such a huge part in it. I admired all the character's guts for being willing to sacrifice that much to keep the others safe, but was so happy when they finally made the right decision. I also have a few theories, and, while CEO Byun is one, some are a bit more sinister...I still need to think more on them.

I'm so happy Chief Bang seems to be pulling though, since the stakes are just as high without him being dead. I felt his absence so much, even with the little glimpse we got of his last moments before he was hurt. I love how everyone has their own reasons for self-blame, because it really drove in how it's not anyone's fault, especially not Bong-hee's and not Ji-wook's. They all had such lovely moments of support this episode. I just don't know if my heart can take them in danger anymore!

I'm really looking forward to learning about why Hyun-soo felt the need to go to such lengths. Nothing can justify his actions against innocent people who've gotten in his way, but I still really want to know what drove him to this point. I'm certain it will break our hearts!

It's still a bit unpredictable for now (at least to me, heh) and we still have a lot of angles to tackle. I'm glad the ratings are finally going up, and yes, JCW is a mighty great actor.

i think HS has amnesia from the very start...selective amnesia that is...dunno why though just a hunch and the guy who bump HS intentionally is the guy who hurts/kill his love one and KCH might not be at all innocent--not because he killed someone but because of his past with HS. He might done something wrong that make HS had a hold on him til now.
In addition to, when HS says to JW that it's all their fault...prosecutors like him that let go of the guilty ones and lock those who are innocent...is somehow related to his past,...and maybe the suspicious guy who bump him has been freed from his wrong doings..

p.s. just a more far fetch theory...
i think all of those whom HS kill is related to his love one..and he kills them one by one.
and another maybe that suspicious guy, chef yang and the "others" "rape his girl" then died and KCH knows it all who does nothing.

Notes to the Production Crew:

Writer-nim, stop Bogumify the villains! I mean I love me some complex and conflicted characters, but now I am starting to acquire a serial murderer fetish. Last year you turned an innocent cellist to a psychopath with daddy complex, and now you are making a doofus chaebol into an avenger with wounded smiles.

PD-nim, stop playing sad and romantic music in the background when Hyun-Soo is on the screen. We Kdrama viewers for years have been conditioned to take clear music queues, lyrical music does not go with serial murderers. More high-pitch down-bow slashy dissonant chords on the violin we need, you know, please follow the Hitchcock handbook.

My theory is way out there but I feel as if this whole fabrication of evidence could have been planned by Hyun Soo himself. Given his near photographic memory, he obviously must have noticed the missing knife and deduced that Ji Wook was planning to frame him with it. It also makes sense that the clothes he was wearing that night would have been soaked in blood so that allows him to stain the knife with blood. The driver who rammed into Hyun Soo also had this glint in his eye that makes me think that he was paid to do what he did. What better way to get out of your crimes than to make yourself a victim? Everyone who interacted with Ji Wook in the aftermath of the stabbing knew he was unstable and he is even on record for assaulting Hyun Soo. It would not be difficult for Hyun Soo (if he survives) or any other lazy prosecutor to pin this on Ji Wook and even if Hyun Soo dies, he dies a victim of a set-up. Most importantly, this entire fiasco seriously undermines the prosecution's case especially since Hyun Soo has already been "falsely accused" by the authorities once.

HS dying would really reflect badly on the prosecution. It would seem like the prosecution had a vendetta against him and pushed him into this accident.

When HS was following that guy, we didn't get to see what happened next. He might have blackmailed him to do this since that guy knows about the mysteriously convenient deaths of his acquaintances.

about planting the knife, could it be the other guy whom Eun hyuk questioned, a wild guess.

also, the writer nim really does a great job in writing characters. Hyun soo could have been like jiwook, but losing his dear one made him take revenge. jiwook did look scary like the detective said but he stopped before doing anything wrong. just this makes him a hero, and hs the culprit.

Overall thought: this episode was a roller coaster ride (but a good and scary one)!

- I'm soo relief and glad to hear Chief Bang is alright!!!
- I, too, think the amnesia is finally in play and I really like the writer's use of it.
- I love the deep layers of Hyun Soo. He's such an interesting character.
- I still hope Chan Ho is okay.
- I really enjoy watching Ji Wook, Eun Hyuk, and Yoo Jung working again. I especially love that Ji Wook and Eun Hyuk are working together and in harmony.
- I'm so relief that Ji Woo, Eun Hyuk, and Bong Hee decided not to tamper with the evidence. I don't want them to lose their license to practice law.
- I'm thinking the person who stole the knife is someone working for Bong-Hee's exbf's dad. I forgot his name and I dont care to bother to know it. I don't like him.
- I'm glad Bong Hee didn't pull any noble idiocy and instead stood by him despite putting the blame on herself.
- I really like today's episode.

My admiration to the writer keeps increasing episode by episode, because, Writer-nim, you truly have excellent grasp in your script, you know where your drama will go next, and you set the pace very skillfully. Hats off!

And now Ji-wook has a taste of what it's like to be behind bars (though only for a night). Who's up for the experience next, I wonder? Perhaps the title should really be 'Suspicious Partners', this quirky and oddball law firm you heard through friends of the friends, where people say the partners have gone through jail themselves.

I somehow think that it may be District Attorney Jang... you know he's not mentally fine after Hee Joon's death... and maybe he had a listening device implanted in the team's office and overheard everything. It wouldn't surprise me of he did it... cause he almost killed Bong Hee via strangulation so he can do anything just to avenge his son's death.

And I got a feeling that Hyun Soo's mental and emotional wounds run deep and it was left untreated then it festered. Seeing as he took justice on his own hands means that some god awful tragedy happened to him and it makes me hate him less.

I am curious about one thing... Is it really okay in Korea to hit someone with your car and just... get away?? Most korean dramas and in SP there were 2 hit-n-run cases (the 6th sense guy and HY). The person who did the hit with his/her car seem to just went away and never showed up to apologize to the victim(s)... I am so confused...

No, it's definitely not okay and it very much illegal in Korea. If the person dies as a result they would be likely be charged with vehicular manslaughter and the sentence would be much worse if it's a hit-and-run. Of course some people get away with it, like chaebols and celebrities (Ryu Shi-won, who was never charged due to reaching a settlement with the victim's family, and Jo Hyung Ki who only served a year in prison despite trying to dump the body to conceal the crime). That's not unique to Korea though, even in the US people can get away with things like that if they have money and power (Ted Kennedy, for example). I think we can assume that the hit-and-run case for the 6th sense guy was resolved off-screen, it wouldn't really have added anything by showing it. With HS the guy who hit him is probably going to show up again, so we'll see what happens then.

It's not okay, but in kdramas, it really does seem like hit and runs don't get investigated, unless the victim was the hero/heroine or their family. I feel weird that no one knows that 6th sense guy is dead. It must have made the news, right? He just got released for assaulting a guy and then minutes later, gets mowed down?

The hit and run driver looked like HS friend, the one that was asking why everyone was looking for him. I'm guessing HS paid him off to hit him.

Omg. That can be true. HS maybe prefer to die than going to jail

I don't think HS paid him to hit him. I think the guy hit him because he figured out he was the next murder victim. He did it in self-defense. I think HS is knocking off those that hurt his friend.
I hope they don't go the amnesia route

Ive got this feeling, that somehow Hyunsoo is innocent and that man that Eunhyuk asked was the real killer. Hyunsoo confessed the killings so that Jiwook and his team will stop following him because he is also investigating on his own and is planning to get the justice the girl deserves, he will put the justice on his own hand.

Am I the only one thinking, that if Mr Bang is alive, it means there's still one person in the office that will be dead, like the man "who can see the future" said? But again, it depends on what actually he saw when he said that. Did he just see that those people lying unconscious after being stabbed, getting hit by a car, or anything else that may caused death? Or he actually saw them dead, but didnt know their identities? Why I'm having this bad feeling in my chest, thinking something unexpected will happen later?

No no no. No one dies. The shaman client said there's possibility 2 person will die. And right before he dead, he told JW not to cry too much, because everything will be okay. Might be he see the future changed. So 1 person die is enough

I arrived late to Suspicious Partner and I'm kinda wishing that I had waited until it concluded. The show is really enjoyable but I feel it would be better enjoyed in a binge than in a weekly format. I feel this way for two reasons: 1) the show has a heavy crack factor that makes you want to binge it and 2) when you have time to reflect on he episodes you begin to see the flaws.

To the latter point, to some degree, it reminds me of W. W worked well as a marathon because you didn't have time to process what was happening. Granted, W fell completely apart by the end and SP would have to take several wrong turns to go down that path. The seams for SP are starting to show and it's becoming harder to ignore them. I hope production has an moment of time to right ship a bit.

So, here is my far fetched theory: Hyun-soo didn't actually kill anybody (except BHs boyfriend) but another amnesiac person did it. He blackmails that person every time anew but then doesn't do anything else except get rid of the bodies. So he is not the killer and the amnesiac "real killer" doesn't remember the killing or him.

I noticed in the screenshot that the body still has his helmet on. What amazes me the most is that he had time to put his helmet on with the prosecutors chasing after him. I have a feeling there's a hidden reason for this, being that the body isn't Hyun Soo's. He didn't kill that third guy but he must have made some sort of deal with him.

Mr. Byun took the knife or super twist Hyun-soo took the knife to set himself up for some super plot twist!!
Those 3 guys did something really bad to that girl that they either killed to cover it up or she committed suicide . Either way i believe they had it coming

I predict that the evidence planter is Prosecutor Jang. He's done it before. The pants leg and shoes looked like him. In future we'll find out how he knew where the knife was. Mr. Byun wears much more stylish clothes as befits his income level. We'll have more drama as the lawyer firm wonders who planted evidence and doubts each other.

That car accident? That took me by surprise. I am also happy that Chief Bang is alive and can't wait for him to wake up and join the team. I find Hyun Soo to be very creepy, the way he smiles and then grows serious. I want to know when the missing cop is going to show up again. Is he dead or alive?

I'm probably way late to the party on this but my guess is that Hyun Soo's case of justice not being served is related to the deaths of Ji Wook's parents and Bong Hee's dad being unfairly accused. I don't know, there's just something about how this writer is structuring the flashbacks and clues that makes me think that everything is about to come full circle. I am loving this show, but wishing that I had waited and binged because waiting a week between episodes is torture. I even went back and watched a bunch of scenes, just to get a fix!

Man, I looooveee this writer! I'm pretty sure HS's backstory will be heartbreaking. And so proud of Dong-ha for playing this part! He's doing a great job ??
