When Joon Young’s on a roll, he’s on a roll. From a public confession to stepping up his game, he knows he doesn’t have much time left and is willing to throw caution to the wind. Ji Tae probably needs a ticking clock to act as well, but I still doubt if he would be able to act should he have that chance. Young Ok’s still stewing in bitterness and pissing me the fuck off and Ji Tae makes a devastating choice.
Joon Young’s pain and desperation is just started and we have to brace ourselves for it. Because in one moment, he’s cleaning house and in the next, he’s crippled with pain. Ji Tae’s keeping a double life and a ton of secrets. Joon Young finally agrees to do the documentary and it’s ironically more real to him than anyone could ever imagine.
It’s a brilliant first episode filled with comics and parallel universes and fangirls and fanboys with everything thrown in to make it a spectacular beginning. We meet most of our players, including the one that’s missing and get thrown a murder mystery, a disappearance, a life saving emergency, different universes and a boy searching for a girl in another universe on the other side of the screen. If I don’t make any sense, forgive me. I’m just still reeling from the amazingness that’s W.
The Hong’s keep showing us their worse selves and confirm that you don’t want these doctors coming anywhere near you when you’re in a hospital. Chairman Hong’s surgery is successful. Hy Jung’s car gets her in trouble. Seo Woo’s still the slimy snake from high school (except now she wears a lab coat) and Ji Hong and Hye Jung reach an impasse.
Ghosts are quite persistent, although Kyung Ja and Hyun Ji take it to a whole new level (probably why they’re such besties). Hyun Ji’s persistence finally pays off and Bong Pal thaws big time; so much so that he starts to actively make her a part of his life. Chun Sang and In Rang are still weird and cute and something really creepy is going on with Hye Sung.
Seo Woo’s always gotten away with speaking hurtful words and gets the taste of her own medicine. Or rather, she gets flayed with words by Yoon Do, our adorable but ruthless cutie. Myung Hoon and Sung Jong continue to plan. We get more of a glimpse into Ji Hong’s past and Chairman Hong is sick. Very sick.
There’s more to everyone than meets the eye, although Kyung Ja doesn’t care as long as oppa is pretty (hehehehe). Hyun Ji works her magic and soon Bong Pal’s thawing around our friendly ghost. Myung Chul remains a coward and there’s more to Hye Sung might not be what everyone thinks he is.
Everything kicks up a notch this episode with a con that has so many levels we still aren’t sure if it’s wrapped up. Jung Do allays Sung Il’s fears only to bring it right back up. Jae Sung’s still slimy, Ho Seok’s still stupid, Min A’s not as smart although she thinks she’s smart and Bang Pil Gyu remains the smartest Bang of all. Or is he?
The story draws to a close leaving us with the question: is it death? Is it the imagination? Is it a dream or is this something tacked at the very end. Hong Joo dies but she doesn’t go alone, nor did she trick her escort into dying along with her. The curse is broken but at a very expensive cost. And after twenty episodes, it’s time to say goodbye.
Sang Il turns desperate as he tries to keep Tae Joon locked behind bars. But nobody backs Hye Kyung into a corner and walks away scot-free, especially when you do so in a court of law. Joong Won continues to be Hye Kyung’s support system although a rumor threatens to shatter that. Something really is going on under the surface of Tae Joon’s corruption charge but as always with this show, we have no idea what’s what.
