Once in a while, you realize that some good guys are just the worst of bad guys, carrying a good guy’s badge and bearing a good guy’s title. The team works well off each other in pulling off the con. Jae Sung’s shady and abusive and Commissioner Ahn is slimy and corrupt. Sung Il’s quickly learning the art of the con but Man Jin Seok pulling a fast one might just put everyone in danger.
A misguided love can easily be turned into something hurtful, but true love will always seek to protect the one who is loved. Hong Joo strikes back at Queen Shim and Seo Ri protects her mother. Sunjo is still convinced Seo Ri is out to kill him but is slowly coming around. Poong Yeon becomes Hong Joo’s newest puppet even as Hong Joo loses her former puppet(s). And Jun makes a promise to the king that we’ve all been waiting for him to make.
Sometimes, we’re blindsided by news we never saw coming. Seok Gyun takes the time to reflect and realizes that he’s not been that much of a husband. Seong Jae learns of Hee Ja’s mental slip up’s even though others have no idea yet. Choong Nam proves that she’s one of the best friends ever. Young Won says goodbye to her first love whilst Nan Hee is still falling in love only to be rocked by a potentially devastating news.
Amassing a con squad isn’t easy, but when you have Jung Do putting them together, you can bet it will be a squad worth smiling about. Our team is almost complete and they’re all experts in their field. Sung Il’s trying to learn the art of the con, although he isn’t doing so well. We get a glimpse of Jung Do and Sung Hee’s past, even as Sung Hee makes a call to protect her boss which might ultimately harm him.
At the moment when it most counts, Queen Shim rises to the occasion and becomes a mother. Hong Joo’s still dying and she’s now desperate. Sunjo’s crossing over to the dark side and he doesn’t even know it. Poong Yeon is willingly crossing over to the dark side all for the sake of a love that isn’t love but pure selfishness and Seo Ri and Jun are pairing up and doing great things together.
Some baddies deserve the slowly take them apart treatment. Gil Do’s one of those and the show doesn’t disappoint. Dokku comes to the rescue several times over and is solidly on the sides of our kids. Alliances get reshuffled and rearranged and the pressure finally has Gil Do snapping as the monster emerges.
When our lead learns to read social cues and our female lead, beautiful and sweet kisses happen. Soo Ho finally admits to himself and to others that he likes Bo Nui. Bo Nui likes him back but wants to put him at arm’s length. Gun Wook is still crushing on Bo Nui and Seol Hee’s still trying to end up with Soo Ho, but the only one Soo Ho’s interested in is the superstitious bug who’s wormed her way into his heart.
We hold our breaths because things get even more intense than the usual Master: God of Noodles style. Gil Do teams up with unlikely allies, as does Yeo Kyung. Moo Myeong finds someone else on his side and Tae Ha rushes to Yeo Kyung’s aid, only for everything to come crashing down because of a picture.
Sometimes we hear the truth about our developing emotions from the most unexpected places. Soo Ho continues to fall headlong in love and Bo Nui, our beloved raccoon is not too far behind. Our leads learn so much more about each other and create a bond that’s even stronger than any they’ve otherwise experienced.
Some people are fearless because they feel nothing, but the truly fearless are the ones who push through the emotions and can still look a psychopath in the eye and tell him that she’ll let the world know the truth about him. Jin Sung’s able to hit Young Oh where it really hurts. But not for long because what Young Oh wants, Young Oh gets. There’s more to Suk Joo than meets the eye and more to Young Oh’s emotional struggle or lack thereof. We find out why Young Oh was at the morgue but who got there before him?
