As we knew from episode 10, Je Ha was sent on what was deemed "mission impossible" and made a deal with Choi Yoo Jin that he would finally kill Park Gwan Soo. Now of course we knew it wouldn't be easy, but I didn't expect some of what was to come and 'The K2' didn't nail its mark with this part of the story.
Secretary Kim Dong Mi made it seem she would really become a threat and take out Je Ha but that idea really went nowhere. She convinced the chief of the special J.S.S. SWAT Team, whom Je Ha has had countless pleasures of working with, to insure his death in the capture of Park Gwan Soo.
The betrayal would've been marvelous and I was anticipating how and when it would happen. The Martial Arts specialist, who also makes many comical appearances throughout the drama with Je Ha, meddled his way into the mission as well and I instantly had the sense he would somehow save Je Ha's life.
Wrong, wrong, and wrong. My predictions finally come true as the scene escalates from a slow, spy-like car chase into a rather quick gun showdown. Both these scenes were enjoyable because they were simple but dynamic. The "Did you eat yet?" coded phrase threw us all off guard and I speak for everyone when I say we still have no clue how the SWAT team managed to infiltrate Park Gwan Soo's hideout. It jumps right to the action and avoids the cliche "how are we breaking in?" scenes.
Everything leading up to "mission impossible" seemed clever and strategically developed but it just ends with Je Ha in Park Gwan Soo's guarded hideout with a gun to his head and a change of heart! This scene was good but may have left a few viewers in disbelief. Je Ha doesn't kill Park Gwan Soo or feed his thirst for revenge due to his P.T.S.D (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) condition. Le sigh.
But the drama didn't fail to deliver some intensity. I like how sarcastically Je Ha recollects and somewhat mumbles Choi Yoo Jin's words, "A bullet isn't the only way to kill someone," as the new objective has become to ruin Park Gwan Soo's presidency instead, and they call back the SWAT teams.
I'm no detective, but it seemed obvious that Park Gwan Soo was trapped and had no choice but to do as Choi Yoo Jin demand. Think again - the director decided not to end it so abruptly and to keep our minds racing. Je Ha leaves with a bag worth $2 million USD (why USD, I have no particular clue), Jang se Joon is added to their political party (another reason I'm a little unsure of) and has his investigation charges dropped and everyone is left happily ever after. This left everyone completely confused I'm sure because it seems like checkmate in Choi Yoo Jin's case.
'The K2' doesn't go without its regular dose of comedy now and again as the J.S.S security get chummy and drink up over some K-BBQ! It is easy to see new sides of Anna and Je Ha being revealed. Together they are so bashful and Je Ha is beyond sincere and aware of her feelings, whereas in public he is more serious and reluctant towards Anna's playful charms (Je Ha with that face pack was ridiculously cute!).
The dynamic between the two is infectious, lovable and fulfills the dreams of all hopeless romantics! The drama easily transitions into romantic scenes without twisting up the drama's overall genre. There is never a moment's rest, even when Je Ha and Anna seem to think there is because Choi Yoo Jin - or someone - is always watching them.
At least no one knows of their secret spot of romance on top of the roof by Anna's window. Was anyone else awaiting a more romantic kissing scene? Maybe in episode 12.
However, that seems unlikely because after Je Ha's meeting with Choi Yoo Jin in 'Cloud Nine,' Choi Yoo Jin makes it obvious she has a devious plan - one that will not only screw over Jang Se Joon for smacking her (yes, he went there!) but also Anna in the process.
It is now Je Ha who is becoming her tool for destruction as the drama ends with Choi Yoo Jin coldly saying to her secretary, "Je Ha can not find out about this, no matter what." As her glossy eyes seem to shake endlessly and her usual twisted smile turns into a concerning frown, the credits roll up as fast as I am pulling out my hair.
Episode 11 pulled a lot of punches on the plot and left plenty of question unanswered, particularly involving Choi Yoo Jin's brother signing the JB group owned hideout house under Anna's name. Totally suspicious. But who should we really worry about more - Je Ha or Anna?
