I was practically shaking with triumphant mirth when Bang Pil Gyu nearly prostrated himself and groveled at Jung Do's feet. That's right betch, yo pride don't mean shittake mushrooms! Especially after you framed an unwitting, innocent person and used her for your own personal and financial gain.
"...Well this is the most boring dinner party ever."
Though I don't know how I feel about Jung Do's decision to just chuck nearly $50 million onto the streets. He literally made it rain cash. Well, as Jung Do said himself, the money is simply going back to the people in the most 'organic' way possible without going through all of the system's filters.
Sooo, Pil Gyu is down, but he's not even the biggest target. Choi Chul Woo, the old fart who's skilled at hiding his sharp knife of cunning and playing his cards close to the vest, is obviously Jung Do's next target. The remaining five episodes will likely reveal the eventual ruin of Choi Chul Woo and finally let us in on who exactly this 'Chairman Wang' is.
"If you don't like the food, then please, feel free to leave."
I don't know about you, but I get the feeling that Mayor Chun Gap Soo will turn coat against Choi Chul Woo and possibly even resign from his post as mayor. Obviously Chun got to where he is now through the help of Choi, but when shit gets too deep and his moral compass is tested, even the seemingly collected Chun may break under the pressure. Plus he's got his daughter Sung Hee to think about. Imagine her disappointment in and resentment toward him once she finds out that her father is involved in everything she stands against. Or maybe she will be more understanding now, especially after her disabusing revelation that no matter how hard you kick and struggle, the system isn't something that can't be beat the 'right' way. Orrrr Mayor Chun's been working against Choi Chul Woo this entire time! That would sure make for an interesting twist.
Sung Il is in denial of the betrayal and duplicity.
Poor Sung Il. He was played like the big buffoon that he is as well as used by Jung Do and, worse, by his detective friend Deok Bae. He was just a ploy in Jung Do's intricately planned design for revenge. It's not even that Jung Do fooled the marbles out of Sung Il, it's that Sung Il had placed his trust in Jung Do's hands to uphold his ideals as a good man of the law, and that trust was so ruthlessly shattered by Jung Do. With both his pride and his ideals tainted, no wonder Sung Il was so livid. No one likes the feeling of being used or the feeling of betrayal. And Sung Il endured both all in the span of one day. This is why, folks, you never trust the words out of a conman's mouth.
