Adamas: Episodes 7-8

The deeper our twins dig into the murder case, the more mysteries are revealed, and it’s a race against the clock as the baddies try to get rid of any evidence that can be used against them. Are our heroes gonna make it? I’m not even sure.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

We had a slightly scary brush with makjang this week, but I’m happy to report that the drama was able to keep itself slick and organized despite some hairy and harrowing plot reveals. Was I wrong to doubt?

For all the action this week, not a lot of progress was made on the investigation or adamas-pinching itself… but on the flipside were all those reveals, motivations, and uh, some truly terrifying new characters. And car bombs. Get ready, folks!

Much like last week we’re seeing a little more equity now between our brothers and their storylines, and though we cut back and forth more frequently, their plots (and them!) remain separated. Hopefully not forever, if you catch my drift.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

Woo-shin squeezes his way out of a sticky situation with the other maid who’s tailing and trailing: MS. OH (Woo Hyun-joo), and with the help of wads and wads of cash, is able to get some info and aid out of her. Of course, he doesn’t trust her much more than he trusts anyone, but still, info is info.

Now that he knows the adamas is out of the house – and he’s imprisoned in it — Woo-shin’s plan is to pit Dragon Lady Kwon against her beloved chairman. With some info from Ms. Oh (about Ms. Kwon’s deceased son and the chairman’s former heart transplant), and his writer’s brain hard at work (this requires a lot of sitting on the couch and staring into space which is one of the things I adore about this character), he hatches a plan.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8 Adamas: Episodes 7-8

We learn with Woo-shin that Dragon Lady Kwon’s young son committed suicide on the very tree that’s outside her bedroom window, and that her comatose son’s heart was the one that saved Chairman Kwon via transplant many years ago. The makjang radar is high at this point, but as this plays out, it becomes as twisty as it does galling — and remains well-written.

Woo-shin writes a chapter of a story that gets right to Ms. Kwon’s psyche: a powerful duke murders his servant’s son and then steals his heart. It sets Ms. Kwon off as much as Woo-shin expected, and the scenes these two share over this are truly masterful, whether it’s her hyperventilating and screaming, or Woo-shin’s chess-like mind working to find out the actual truth.

Pitting Dragon Lady Kwon against the chairman proves harder than he thought, and it’s a horrific moment when he realizes that she also suspected the chairman of “suiciding” her son for his heart, but then buried that thought in her blind devotion. Their relationship is hands down the most terrifying thing ever.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

Woo-shin is having equally iffy luck with Hye-soo. Though they are quite open with each other now, and Hye-soo seems all-aboard to help Woo-shin’s anti-Haesong plot, there’s still the lingering feeling that we don’t know all that we need to about Hye-soo… and that she’s capable of more than we might realize.

She does, however, tell Woo-shin not only that Secretary Yoon was the one who brought him to the house as ghostwriter, but that the reason was Hye-soo herself. Thus the story of Min-jo is brought up once again. As predicted, Hye-soo admits they were in love. But then she says that she is sure the chairman had him killed, that he only cared for his eldest son, and worst of all that “angel” Min-jo was volunteering at a prison and got pulled into the Lee Chang-woo case. Right before he died. Oh boy.

Still, with all this information sharing — about the adamas, too — these two are not entirely allied. And later, we see via flashback that Hye-soo visited the twins’ mother before she died to let her know that Lee Chang-woo wasn’t guilty. This case is seriously like a bottomless well of intrigue!

Adamas: Episodes 7-8 Adamas: Episodes 7-8

And now we turn to Soo-hyun and his adventures, which get even more intense than last week. At first he’s hiding with Seo-hee in Woo-shin’s apartment, but when a toilet repairman comes in and sets off his suspicions, the whole thing comes crashing down. (Side note: What a freakin’ great bunch of scenes this was, with all of its character permutations.)

The truth of the matter is that the SIH was using Soo-hyun and Seo-hee as bait… because more than Chairman Kwon, they really want Team A, his evil operating arm. We already know how evil they are, but each week convinces us even more so.

Anyway, Soo-hyun and Seo-hee wind up confined yet again with the SIH and their secret + shady ways. But no one can accuse them of not being committed to their cause. They don’t even have identities on paper (except for the leader); that’s how invisible they need to be.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

Meanwhile, Team A is busy doing their evil deeds. Team Leader Lee sees to it that all the records and evidence around the Lee Chang-woo case are stolen from the police and destroyed (guess the police never digitized their records in time…). He also secures a hair from Lee Chang-woo himself to satisfy his evil hunch, soon confirming that Lee Chang-woo is the father of our brave and delicious twins.

But that’s not enough. There’s a new assassin brought into the mix — she’s a sassy and psychotic young woman that goes by the name of SUN (Park Hye-eun). That name also just so happens to be the name of Secretary Yoon’s sibling, whose bouquet gift leaves her in such horror that she literally runs away.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

I don’t much go for the psycho assassin archetype — especially when they are women in lace tops that can’t seem to sit or stand up straight — but she does the job. She’s terrifying. Her job is to kill Soo-hyun (Team Leader Lee’s new vendetta) and she goes about it through horrible means.

While Soo-hyun is investigating with “Baek hyung” — one of the SIH operators — they find the last bit of evidence from the Lee Chang-woo case that Team A didn’t get to: his father’s body. Though the grave marked with his name was obviously dug up and dealt with, the real body is buried a few graves away. And sure enough, we learn that this was Woo-shin’s doing, and even Soo-hyun has to give him credit for that one, heh.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

But then, after that small win of retaining what Soo-hyun calls the best evidence in a murder case (i.e., the victim), disaster strikes. Soo-hyun and Mr. Baek are in the car about to pull away, when a phone rings. It’s from the trunk, which they reluctantly open. Inside is Soo-hyun’s sweet colleague from the prosecution office — tortured and killed by Sun.

Sun just so happens to be sitting on a hilltop nearby observing the whole scene with glee. After making sure that Soo-hyun learns her name (like any true psycho — but also probably a necessary plot point, right?), she detonates a car bomb and they all go up in flames.

Hours later the SIH finds out and the bodies are recovered. Everyone is D.O.A. except Soo-hyun, but the doctors can’t save him and he’s also pronounced dead.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8 Adamas: Episodes 7-8

And just when you want to copycat Soo-hyun and punch an inanimate object, we get one more twist by way of Lee Chang-woo himself. The mystery that Woo-shin can’t piece together around the case is why in the world Team A has let Lee Chang-woo live for the last 22 years; why not just kill him and get rid of the whole situation (as is their MO)?

Well, our twist tells a different story, because Lee Chang-woo has a switch flip in his head after hearing Team A mentioned by the guard who keeps an eye on him. In a scary episode-ending moment, he tells the guard to tell Team Leader Lee that his sunbae wants to see him. MOMMY!

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

With the piles of new plot developments this week, my head is swimming a bit. And while I wish the villains were a little less Villainous, I still really love how twisty the whole thing is, and how well-paced and plotted. Each thread that’s tugged on reveals another huge chunk of the story, and with half the drama still ahead, there’s a lot more to uncover.

I’ll also use the mid-way point as a reason to hope that Soo-hyun isn’t really dead. I mean, I wouldn’t put it past the show at this point — but it just makes so much more sense for the SIH to fake his death instead. Also, I’m just feeling a little greedy for more of the twins.

Oh the plight of a viewer falling more in love with a drama’s heroes each episode! At first I thought I loved Woo-shin more, with his reckless wanderings and fearless behavior, but now I kinda love Soo-hyun and his hot-headed scoffs and kicking of cars. Okay, I love them both. I’m looking forward to the time when this drama brings them together again in real time. That’s gonna happen, right?

Every time you think there can't be a crazier twist, more spectacular secrets about Ms Kwon are revealed. As freaky as this woman is, I suddenly felt enormously sorry for her. Especially since she became this monster, among other things, when she was literally crippled both physically and emotionally as a whipping boy (or whipping girl) for the later Chairman Kwon.

Yeah, they got me too. No matter how she ends up by the end, her story has this real tragic quality to it. No matter how badly she’s abused or how horrifically she and her family are exploited, she was born and raised solely for this purpose so she must suffer the consequences. That’s bound to drive anyone insane.

They brought the PIPING HOT TEA these episodes. I loved it. The only thing I didn't care for was the hired hit woman, mostly because it is not even remotely believable she was able to do all those things she did. If poison was her weapon of choice, that would make sense to me, but physical violence, no. The rest of the episodes were awesome though.

Hilariously found it more unbelievable that she could've got that body into the trunk on her own than I did that she could kill someone with a hammer. Then again, all the dude had to do probably was lie on her and she'd be useless against him, even if he couldn't fight.

Exactly, she is too small a woman for it to be believable she killed a much larger man with a hammer, dragged his body because she didn't carry it into a van, without anyone seeing mind you, managed to get the body into the trunk of another car, and then set up the bomb. The bomb was the most believable part.

Weight, height and strength are three of the most important factors in hand to hand combat.

If she could incapacite him, e.g. take out his kneecaps, before he could react, and then hit him again in the head whilst he's still recovering from the pain and shock, this situation is perhaps feasible.

However, even unarmed, and even when he's still conscious but wounded and sitting down, he still maintains a large W/H/S advantage over her; the show has to paint him as a giant coward who didn't do anything to try and resist and fight back in order for that to be remotely believable.

Oh well. At least they didn't actually show her fighting anyone on screen 😅😅😅

Wow, these are some early recaps. I just barely finished the episodes and the recaps were already there. You’re a real one this for, @missvictrix. Adamas has turned out to be the kdrama I look forward to the most each week. Definitely not a development I expected, but a welcome one nonetheless.

And what a ride these episodes were. I never expected the story to go to a point where we the audience feel bad for Lady Kwon, but you just can’t help it given her situation. Her family has served Chairman Kwon’s for generations - long enough that hers was once enslaved to his. That’s one hell of an intergenerational curse to overcome and she clearly never got the means to do so and over time, any motive she might have had was buried under the weight of the very present physical and verbal abuse she faced on a regular basis. She has been indoctrinated since birth to defer and obey - even the price of her own beloved flesh and blood is expendable to master. That’s… astonishingly deep. The writer could’ve written her off as yet another fanatically-devoted servant to a psychotic overlord, but chose to give her character a realistic, if upsetting, explanation for the way she is. It’s details like these that keeps me coming back every week.

I don’t believe for a second that Soo-hyun is dead. I just don’t. But just for the sake of hypotheticals, it would be ballsy as HELL if they actually went for it. It’s not often that writers kill off their main protagonist halfway through a prime-time miniseries without extenuating circumstances. I would honestly kind of respect the writer for going there, even thought it would be sad since I’m now emotionally invested in Soo-hyun as a character and in his quest for justice.

So, uhhh, yeah, idk how to end this. I’m loving the show. I hope they keep up the strong writing and twisty threads. As well as the editing. It’s been SO LONG since I’ve seen such quality editing on a kdrama, this has been a TREAT.

I only respect killing off an MC half way through if the back half lives up to the decision 😅 -which it frequently does not- but yeah nah he ain't dead, it wouldn't make sense for him to die this early (hopefully not at all but there's no way everyone is getting out of this alive so 😬).

It came to my mind, as I watched her agony, that at least Lady Kwon's curse will be buried with her, as there is no heir to that misery anymore.
I mean, to live freely is an inate will. Her son chose to keep it. That leads me to a though: The chairman couldn't let go of him. He simply knew much about his family.

That ending was a sweet reveal and so well done. I am always in the edge of my seat when I watch this drama. I think that I need to binge a sweet fluffy drama to ease all this tension.

"(guess the police never digitized their records in time…)" 😂😂 I had to suspend my disbelief for this one.

I am sorry but I felt absolutely nothing for Ms Kwon...

I'm still appealed at how reckless everyone is in that mansion.
From Dong rim who spends his time basically talking about stealing the Adamas with his loudest voice to Woo-shin who still continues to recklessly wonder around the house and doesn't even bother hiding while he's plotting with Tae sung. Does he think guard Kim will continue to cover for him? And why isn't he questioning his motives?

I love that Woo-shin seemingly plans things before execution but ugghhhhh, the recklessness annoys me not to talk of his non existent poker face.

I wouldn't mind having less of Soo-Hyun's anger outbursts. I also don't think/hope he's dead and as much as I'm not a fan of the SIH, I hope Seo-Hee listens to them because it is indeed a trap this time.

On to nicer things...Seo Ji-Hye is just gorgeous. She's surely a delight for any stylist. I have watched her in 3 dramas and the styling is always impeccable.

Yaay! I said Butler Kwon will aide our good guys to bring down Chairman/bad guy and the drama is starting to show signs of setting it up, but then with the revelation that she knew it, the story might go either way. Given her history, I wonder, if she saw that chairman would not let her or her off-spring to escape the house and objected to let her son study abroad, but with her cleverness she must know she can't singlehandedly bring down the chairman and is maybe secretly biding her revenge.

I am impressed with how the writer is twisting all the expectations into unexpected information. I thought the person who was spying on Prosecutor Soo Hyun was Team A, but the unpredictable hitman is Sun.

Now, the bigger mystery is why did Lee Changwoo steal the Adamas? Surely, he did not think he can have a luxurious life. I suspect if he was an undercove agent because I do not see any other possibility for the twins to get adopted by another family, especially when the wife believes the muderer of her husband to be innocent.

I was sad when Prosecutor's co worker became an innocent victim when I expected it to be Guard Kim or Dong Rim. Speaking of Guard Kim, what is his motive? I would not be surprised if there are more number of people with hidden revenge in Chairman's house or simply greedy people like Mrs. Oh. Also, Team A leader hiding about Ha Woo Shin from the chairman looks like a bigger game is at play.

Fun fact: The actor playing Sun was the original actor cast for Mu Deok in "Alchemy of Souls".

I am a little confused. Shouldn't Boss Lee go for Woo-Shin? I mean, he thinks Soo-Hyun killed his brother. If he wants to return the favor (as he described it), he should aim for Woo-Shin to give Soo-Hyun a life time of agony. Instead he ordered the assassin to kill SH? Why?

2

reply

Required fields are marked *

I was confused by this too. Last week he said that he wanted to repay like for like, and personally kill Woosin because Soohyun "killed" his younger brother so he'd kill his and would leave SH alone for now; then this week he switched to hiring someone to definitely kill Soohyun and deliberately didn't tell the Chairman about Woosin in his own house.

I don't know if there's more going on here than what we know or if I missed something or if it's one of the holes in the show or what.

I also find it a bit weird that all that is happening outside, Haesong knows who by and roughly what for- the victims son is stirring up trouble- but as someone I think poointed out on an earlier recap- shouldn't The Chairman and House know who Woosin is upon hiring him? Shouldn't that be a massive red flag? (And did this come up earlier but I forgot or??? 😅)

I didn't think Lee was exacting that kind of revenge. His anger was solely on Soo-Hyun (After seeing the video). Don't think seeing him alive (even if he kills Woo Shin) would satisfy him.

Also, does Lee know Woo Shin is in the house? He never visits the house. The house seems to be under Kwon lady and the affairs of the outside world seems to be under Lee. So this could be a gap in their org.

I was also confused why chairman hired Woo Shin knowing he is the son of the victim. I have a feeling that Lee did not tell the entire story to Chairman. I think there might be some reveals here. Which probably will explain how Woo Shin got inside the mansion.

Also, from Lee's POV Woo-Shin is just a writer. And he is in no way involved in this. It also seemed like the brother's never spend time together in public nor gave the impression they were close.

@mayhemf
I was under the impression from episode 6 that he had no interest in killing Soohyun outright but making him suffer the way he did with his brother's death. I might be wrong though.

Lee found Woosin's contract in his publishing company and saw that he was currently in the Kwon Mansion.
So yes he knows, even though he doesn't go to the house. They also deliberately paused on him when the Chairman asked him if there was anything else he should know, this scene was also directly followed him going to the publishing house.
So yeah there's definitely more going on there.

I doubt Lee doesn't also supsect Woosin right now, but it's true he doesn't know anything specific about what is happening there.

@sicarius

I never got the impression Lee wanted to kill Woo shin.
Also, I think the twins were very clear to never betray their care for each other. Woo Shin probably saw this to be their weakness and kept his distance from early on. Seeing how he switched the graves I think he planned this much longer.

I wasn’t clear. Yes, until this episode Lee didn’t seem to know Woo Shin was inside the mansion.
I was also surprised he figured that the twins were the children of the jailed man (it was a hard guess to make). So yeah, there is more to this.

2

I went back and rewatched some scenes to clear up some details. 😅😅
In episode 6-
After the coroner/doctor declares Lee's younger brother dead, Lee says to his 2IC- "He has a brother right?", "Yes a younger twin", "Get him, I must return the favour"
He then says to track Soohyun's every move, and call the assassin to mark him.

They then look into Woosin, find out he’s currently off the grid and also a writer.
Lee says upon finding out that Song Soonho isn't the twins biological father; "He's in this game, this writer. He disappeared around the same time Soohyun started digging into his father's case. I'm sure there's something and the SIH is behind them"
He then gets his 21C to secure Lee Changwoo's case files and heads to Woosin's publisher's office.
(where in 7 he finds the contract and finds out he’s ghost writing for the chairman.)

So a few things from this.
1. Lee's suspicion of Woosin has actually already started (I forgot about that scene).
2. This is also the point where he begins to suspect something of the connection between the twins, Song Soonho, Lee Changwoo and the Kwon family. Why would the twins make all this fuss for someone who isn’t even their biological father? Why is all this important to them?
And then in 7+8, why was Song Soonho there at all that night? Why take the photo of the twins? What was the link between Song and Changwoo? He puts these all together and then confirms his suspicions.
3. This is what Soohyun and Seohee are also looking into at the same time, what they want the case files for and what we start to get more info on finally at the end of episode 8- why Lee Changwoo? What is HIS connection to the Kwon family, and why was he there that night?
Remember, before episode 8, only Woosin and Changwoo knew that Changwoo is their real dad.
We now know that Changwoo has a prior connection to Haesong. Lee (and possibly Hye Soo) now also knows about the twins’ parentage.
4. Lee did want to mark Woosin for revenge on Soohyun for killing his brother- but how this works when he also ordered the hit on Soohyun yet, I don’t know.
He did order Sun to take out Soohyun AFTER finding out Woosin was at the mansion, and after his conversation with the Chairman, where the Chairman gives him the green light to deal with Soohyun and Seohee.
So perhaps his plans have changed somewhat, upon gaining new information.
(5. this doesn’t answer how the Chairman doesn’t appear to know who Woosin is or why he’s not doing anything about that yet though.)

6. And yes, Woosin has definitely been planning this for frakking ages. The grave switch, shifting house to live in a publisher provided house, not to mention things like how he found out about TaeSung being a double agent.

7. Something that is very interesting about this drama is that lots of things are always happening
almost simultaneously.
All of the events of the past 4 episodes have happened in the span...

7

... span of only a few days.
I think the show does a pretty good job of piecing it altogether, especially to frame things in parallel- what Team A knows, what SIH knows, what Woosin finds out, what Soohyun finds out, and how each piece of the puzzle reacts to each new development and piece of new information.
But at the same time, it can be hard to keep tabs on every tiny thing that happens that sways everything else lmao.
SH2 trying to find the connection between Changwoo and Haesong to form a motive for the murder framing. WS trying to get a retrial and find the Adamas. Team A and Haesong itself becoming increasingly fraught with internal tensions, between team leaders and father and son, with different agendas, whilst trying to keep the twins off their tail long enough to get through the election. WS and HS’s delicate alliance. The SIH and the twins’ delicate alliance. I think maybe that’s why I find it so much fun to watch. The characters are not so smart they’re unbelievable, but smart enough to be immensely enjoyable, despite the few plot holes here and there. And I like that every player on the board has their own agenda, and that is a very real conflict for everyone.

Finally, caught up.

Firstly, yay to more screen time for Hye-soo!

I knew some heads were going to roll.. but not cutie colleague.. that was so brutal and cruel. SUN is really terrifying and worse Lee seems to have a soft spot for her.. Not sure I like her character introduced at this point, but let's see where they go with this.

No no no.. they can't kill one of the twins.. impossible.. I need them together.. And I am with you, both the twins are equally captivating and I love how the tables flipped this week. All along I was terrified for Woo Shin walking about the mansion and thinking its the most dangerous thing to do. But this week all hell broke loose in the outside world.

of course, it's not that easy to break Dragon Lady Kwon! But that was an eerie reveal.

And the ending! wow! bring it on show..

I am loving this show way too much!! and I am fairly confident we are in for a ride for the reminder of the episodes!
I do wish more people were watching it.. Even the ratings didn't seem to be that high? Beats me.

I started this drama just because I love Ji Sung and stuck around because I like slow burning crime stories and his projects are always engaging, now I'm glad that I did. Anyway these 2 episodes put the series to top gear and I'm almost sure it will only get better?!! (Fingers crossed) .
What I like about these series particularly this episode is the editing and cinematography is top notch and I love the way there are things happening in parallel?! and we viewers are just shifting the between the stories two brothers? Its sooo good that Song Suhyun is getting more screen time he deserves and I have to say the beat that SIH agent on a hunch is toooo good :D, since when did Suhyun become a expert in beating people up? I like his hotheaded nature for sure which is completely contradictory to Wooshin who is always having his emotions in check? I especially liked the part where Wooshin switched the gravestones and he was way ahead of Team A?? and the way he interrogated Ms.Kwon all the while deducting her actions and words in his mind!
I don’t buy that Suhyun is dead either and I believe that SIH is faking his death for his safety [REDACTED TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT], although I don’t mind seeing Wooshin getting emotional for once and see how he is reacting? Its often very dangerous for the bad guys when the cool, collected ones decide to go rogue, and I lowkey want Wooshin to be more aggressive and join hands with even more aggressive Suhyun?
Bonus, did I mention I love Ji sung’s portrayal of these 2 characters and I’m unable to pick a favourite!? I anticipate the weekly episodes now and I will definitely check out your [email protected] missvictrix next recaps 😊
