Seol-Woo continues to be confused about Un-Gwang and Do-Ha, although he’s learning how to push the former’s buttons and the latter still has him in the dark. The race for the wood carvings is on, but with all the machinations going on underneath, we realize that it’s not really about the wood carvings, but who comes out on top at the end of it all.
Things continue to spiral out of control for Se-Joo, but in the unravelling, we learn more truths. Unfortunately, what is entertaining for us and enlightening in the same vein, proves heartbreaking for a fan who’d walked away from her favourite author and came back to him. And as things continue to escalate, we spend the hour wishing that Seol had the gift and could see the ghost. But then if she did, we wouldn’t have the drama we’re watching now could we? And that would have been the true heartbreak.
Do-Ha remains suspicious of Seol-Woo and Seol-Woo continues to be perplexed by the strange, strange woman. We find out a bit more about our villains and Mi-Eun but that just raises more questions in its stead. Do-Ha finally comes close enough to accomplishing her goal but foul play puts everything on the back burner.
The truth comes careening to light, making us thankful that the writers didn’t drag out the reveal for too long. Se Joo continues to play hot and cold as things in his life continue to unravel. He finally gets his act together, courtesy of Seol, and just as he believes he’s found solid ground, the truth once again yanks the rug from beneath his feet, leaving him reeling with this new discovery of his ghostwriter.

The past and present; fate and reincarnation; past memories and visions; victim and culprit; sanity and wisdom; truth and deceit. This episode perfectly blends so much contradiction, and leaves us with questions, theories, and the desire to find out what happens next.
Chicago Typeriter kicks off with a bang, or should I say the sharp clatter of keys. We meet all our key players, save for the third mysterious face, and find ourselves in a drama that’s comedy meets suspense meets action meets the supernatural and which then gets topped up with romance. It’s a beautiful cocktail, visibly stunning and one whose first episode is over an hour long, but you won’t find me complaining.
I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I’m so so sorry!
