Big Kdrama Ep 4 Recap
Talk about palm sweating and heart racing! Of course, I knew it wasn’t possible that Ha Woo Jin would plummet to his death so early in the game, but it certainly didn’t stop me from tensing in anxiety and nervousness whenever Ha Woo Jin began swinging on that thin rope just threatening to snap. The kicker here is that this was the exact same method Ha Woo Jin used a year ago when he sought revenge for his mother, so whoever is the one behind knocking him out cold and replicating the scene has all the important tidbits on Ha Woo Jin and his past. What kind of dangers he might face next is anyone’s guess, but as he’s trying to save himself from becoming pancake on concrete, Nam Da Jung is busy trying to save herself from elimination in the layoff round with a 50/50 game and Jaime as her opponent.
I love how the pacing has continued to be fast and consistent throughout the episodes and it is my sincere hope that it will continue this way until the end. The intensity is still present, particularly with Ha Woo Jin, and I’m so loving Lee Sang Yoon‘s portrayal of him. I’ve never seen his projects before, but I’ve already put his other projects on my to-watch list because he’s absolutely captivating here. I’m also really enjoying the unknown and how fast roles can be reversed in the games. It’s been a fun ride with just the right touch of mystery, humor, and heart thumping thrill. As always, the episode ends on a cliffhanger, so I’m anxious to see how the next episode plays out.
What did you think about episode 5 and for those who have seen the Japanese version or have read the manga, how does this Korean remake compare? Let us know by posting your comments below!
Young Mi changes out all the names in the suite from Soo Ah to Sang Hyo before plopping down on the rose petal strewn bed and wondering when it’s her turn to live the high life? She takes out a necklace and talks to herself about the plan to blackmail Soo Ah falling apart with her running off with her secret boyfriend. But at least Manager Hwang left her a life saving route before he died. Someone appears to be spying on Young Mi who takes out her phone and calls someone. She stares at the necklace and asks the caller if her suggestion has been decided? Timing is of the essence since the other side is interested as well. She suddenly hears the suite door open and close loudly.
Hae Young and Sang Hyo exchange their vows again and everything is going swimmingly until Hae Young looks down and notices that Sang Hyo has her fingers crossed. Sang Hyo gives Hae Young a defiant “what?” look right back.
Young Mi is arguing with an unknown person in the suite and holding the necklace, declaring that she got it fair and square. if the person doesn’t want to deal then there are others who want to pay for it. Young Mi goes to the bathroom to prep it for the wedding night as well and scoffs at the person she left in the hotel room. She hears the suite door opening and closing.
Min Goo finally got to speak to to his “destiny.” He’s a clueless little kid who thinks he can pretend to be a player. If I were his friend, I would have unfollowed him a long time ago because he constantly takes selfies and posts weird, cheesy captions on SNS. He uses Soo Ah’s day planner as collateral to get her number then starts stalking her. In his head, they are leads in a movie where he’s a confident lady killer and she’s a young, innocent lamb. But the truth is she’s a noona who’s playing him like a fiddle (in her head because all he does is stalk her and give her milk). After making fun of him with her friends, she devises a plan to make him disappear by using his “destiny” line against him. She borrows a scene from Serendipity and tells him that if they are fated, they will go into adjoining elevators at the same time and pick the same floor. It’s a 15-story building which make his chances low so his friends help him cheat by spying on her in the security room and texting him the floor number she picks.
However, unfortunately for him, fate has other plans and a janitor slows down his journey by catching his elevator on a lower floor and he misses her.
We finally learn why Se Young and Jin Goo can never be. I previously thought Se Young was exaggerating and covering up her feelings when she called him a player and a jerk but she was just being truthful. Two years ago, he’d kissed her while they were working and told her to keep their relationship a secret. She liked him and had been ecstatic about dating him only to see him kissing another woman. It turned out that he kissed tons of women and instructed them all to keep it a secret in order to date multiple women at the same time. Despicable.
Hong-bin proves to be just as rough-tempered at work, where he beats up a couple of employees for suggesting a change in their product line. He also seems quite happy with himself when he lobs a laptop at one of their heads (there goes the CG budget), and while their screams can be heard from inside, Secretary Go calmly makes a call to arrange for the room to be repaired and the broken electronics replaced. It’s almost like he’s done this all before.
To say that what follows is a trip to Crazytown with Hong-bin as the mayor would be an understatement, but here goes: After another beating is administered to his employees for their incompetence, Hong-bin makes a hurried speech about how he detests people who can’t do their jobs before switching the subject to his eyes, which suddenly feel like they’re burning out of his skull.
But then, psych! He threatens the employees that he’ll gouge his eyeballs out and use them as bowling balls against them unless they submit their letters of resignation immediately. The two employees commiserate after their boss leaves, swearing to themselves that they won’t be fired, because they’re quitting. For the record, I have no idea what’s going on.
He finally backs down the way all dads do when daughters talk menstrual cycles, which is pretty funny. Bom-yi leans in the same way his daughter did to whisper in Dong-ha’s ear that he better take good care of his children, since she knows they don’t have a mother. I’m sure your intentions are good Bom-yi, but maaaybe leave the parenting to the parent who’s twice your age.
Apparently, the reason Big Beef is now involved in the butcher shop kerfuffle is because Bom-yi filed a complaint afterward, leading to a meeting between their people and her people, represented by secretary Ji-won. After curtly assuring them that Bom-yi isn’t after settlement money, Ji-won considers the matter closed.
Daddy Lee is proud of his headstrong daughter when Ji-won brings the news to them, but Chairwoman Jo doesn’t find it quite so amusing. Regardless, she asks Ji-won to gather every bit of information possible on her future son-in-law.
Sang-hyo hides while Eun-joo runs around yelling for her. She overhears a female employee in distress — it’s Slimy Manager’s office. He harasses and threatens the woman, playing on her fears about losing her job if she doesn’t go along. Sang-hyo’s voice cuts in, telling him to drop his hand. She lets the employee escape and warns Slimy Manager — who is, in fact, vice general manager of the hotel — that she’ll finish him at the ethics committee meeting if he doesn’t apologize to the employee. He mocks her because he’s a slimy twat.
Eun-joo’s found her again, so it’s time to run. She flies into Detective Kim and asks him to watch her back; she’s about to bolt when she turns back and seals her request with a wink. HAHAHAHA. Poor smitten Detective Kim tries to block Eun-joo from following, but she elbows past anyway.
Team Leader Cha takes Detective Kim to the security office where he explains that each day’s film is moved to an archive every night. Kim says this means someone had to have switched the recording. Only four people have access to that archive, Cha says: GM Lee, Jo Sung-gyum, Slimy (Vice General) Manager, and himself. Cha confirms that he himself would have moved that day’s video, too.
“I’m okay even if we aren’t fated to love each other,” Mi-young replies. “Because I’d still love you like we were.” Gun takes her hand as he tells her that her future with him won’t be without difficulties, but Mi-young isn’t afraid, and doesn’t want him to be either: “Let’s do our best to love each other and be happy together every moment of every day for the rest of our lives.”
So Gun makes a vow to her as they look up at the night sky: “Until the day all those stars disappear, I’ll love you like you’re my fate every day.” Mi-young: “Until the day all those stars disappear, I’ll love you like you’re my fate every day.”
And at what feels like long last, the two get to have a night together they’ll actually remember, complete with candlelight and all their unspoken words of undying love passing between them as they kiss, undress, and make love.
Min Woo offers Hong-Gyu a job but he turns him down flat and tells Min Woo to lavish that attention on his sister since she tends to suffer by herself when she’s hurt. On his way out, he sees Se-Jin and hides. Se-Jin begs Min Woo to call off the investigation and reconcile with her sister. Seriously, this is being dragged out too long. It’s past time for this girl to find out who Hong-Gyu is and what her oldest sister has been up to. Not that it will make any difference since this writer is determined to force this less-than-palatable OTP down our throats.
Hong Joo finds Ji-Sun at her mall and slaps her across the face. *fistpump* Although that was a bad idea, I can’t help but appreciate this new Hong Joo and wish she had slapped Dragon-lady even harder back in Hong Kong. Ji-Sun warns her that she’ll regret her actions. *sarcasm* Yea, I think we need to dump on Hong Joo some more.
Se Young learns how large the fine is and goes to ask Min Woo to get it lowered. Pffftttt, why he should baffles me as much as why she thinks she has the right to ask him for a favor. After being turned down, she runs into Hong Joo. They throw more nasty remarks at each other but Hong Joo ends it by telling her to take care of her health. ROFL! Was this episode supposed to be this funny?
