'The K2' keeps a whirlwind of action going as episode four had a lot of crucial scenes, unexpected twists and even a few moments worthy of a chuckle or schoolgirl giggles. After seeing this episode, I feel like I'm in the making of being a fortune teller as some predictions from the last review came true!
Looking back, we left off with Je Ha in the elevator ready to blow politician Park Gwan Soo's brains out in a bloodbath of epic proportions. Think again. PLOT TWIST - it was just Je Ha's imagining the situation. I know, I know, total letdown... but it doesn't mean the action against Park Gwan Soo came to a screeching halt.
After realizing that Park Gwan Soo was the man that killed Je Ha's first love, Naniya, Je Ha decides to take him out in the utmost, spy-like fashion possible: a detonation device, triggered from a distance, inside the revolving doors of a corporate building. Just when we were already to say "and boom goes the dynamite," the drama doesn't let Je Ha's plans go smoothly. A child interferes, running into the revolving doors first, causing Je Ha to watch in horror hoping his bomb doesn't detonate. Fortunately for him, Park Gwan Soo took his sweet time and left the building from another door, sparing the life of an (annoying) innocent child. Children ruin everything...er, who said that?
Where are the baby leashes when you need it?!?
Now ladies and gents, if you thought Je Ha's torn shorts were giving you the vapors, the best scene hands down goes to the fight in the shower room. Yes, you read correctly, the shower room.
'The K2' didn't skip out on the chance of integrating a sexy shower scene but with an action packed twist, of course! With the blurring of their obvious nude panties, Je Ha takes on the new VIP team that seeked revenge after he beat them up last time. If it weren't my hot tea and space heater heating things up, this scene would have done the trick.
Does anyone else wish they were the water raining down on him? Yes, no?
If only one scene had to be chosen as the highlight of this episode though, it goes to the conversation between politicians Park Gwan Soo and Yoo Jin, hands down. Their conversation indirectly lead to an agreement of a "ceasefire," revealing Park Gwan Soo as the one who sent the assailants who previously attacked Yoo Jin. Talk about mind boggling.
The phrase evil recognizes evil comes alive as both politicians see through each other's false exteriors and have a clever way of putting each other on the spot. Each time they speak is another way of outdoing the other, but this time, the win went to Yoo Jin as she planned her assistant to walk in with the microchip Park Gwan Soo used to hack her car. Game, set, and match. Her husband still seems to be troubling her though.
As the drama progresses, the chief of J.S.S Security is starting to prove he can't be trusted. Despite being familiar with Je Ha, he seems to be doing a lot of sneaky acts in the background. His actions go unnoticed by other characters for now but will have a deadly outcome in the future I'm sure of it. I'm shocked that Je Ha even agreed to join J.S.S Security but he clearly has his own reasons, and although he denies it, his thirst for revenge is apparent and strong. Reasons are the dialogue in this episode was a lot more thought-provoking and well constructed than before.
The conversations between Yoo Jin and Je Ha were intense as they questioned a lot of personal morals, such as when she comments on Je Ha's PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), saying, "Is it the gun that kills or the finger that pulls it? Be my bullet, Je Ha, and let J.S.S Security be your gun." Is it an offer to get away scotch free once (or if) he successfully takes out Park Gwan Soo? Or another one of Yoo Jin's misleading traps draped with sweet words? Be careful Je Ha, you should know better than anyone that nothing in life is free.
I never noticed how contagious YoonA's smile is! :)
But 'The K2' wasn't all work and no play, as it introduced some whimsical moments through Anna's point of view. Ramen prices must have soared through the roof recently, as Anna's little dance after she discovers where the ramen was in the kitchen was the cutest thing I've seen all week!
I ship her and ramen for the rest of the episodes to come. Aside from the food couple, there is another couple I am shipping and that is Anna and Je Ha. The way he charmingly gazes at her through the security cameras (that didn't sound creepy, right??) is plain adorable.
Sadly, Anna found no luck in learning how to cook the ramen, as she is quite clueless, and it is actually more delightful than annoying. After giving up, she still takes the ramen packet and some dumplings to her room to sulk while Je Ha is in the security room pulling his hair over her failed efforts. Both actors really make the chemistry believable despite having no physical contact with each other at this point, which is quite intriguing. Love is forming without them even knowing.
Just when things were getting cute, the drama continues making you shout "WTF," because more problems arise. While Je Ha goes outside the balcony to shyly gaze upon Anna's window, he notices a flashing light and strange figure moving on top of the roof toward her window.
How they leave us until this release of episode 5!
With a dumbfounded expression, the screen freezes and the OST starts playing, leaving everyone in a daze wondering what could be possibly happening next! If it involves another plot twist, like the endless amount in episode four, it is probably Anna on the roof dancing with ramen again - but I doubt it. Until the next episode of 'The K2,' have a good week waiting!
