Team Leader Ham doesn’t waste any time ordering them to follow up on the colonel’s case, but then Chief Secretary Shin storms in with Cha-young in tow. The already tense relationship between the security team and Chief Secretary Shin gets dicey when Team Leader Ham has to admit that the president has gone missing on his watch. He makes sure to add that they still have no evidence that President Lee is dead. Well that’s not exactly comforting.

It turns out that Cha-young already followed up on the colonel’s murder after she spoke with Tae-kyung, but the results of her investigation are alarmingly different from Tae-kyung’s version of events.

The CCTV outside the colonel’s house shows only one man entering the house that evening: Han Tae-kyung. Uh-oh. Tae-kyung swears he saw another man leaving the house before he entered, but the footage shows no one else, and there was no USB drive either.

YD has come to his mom’s café again. This time he enters. His mom immediately tears up when she sees him, but YD can’t look at her in the eye yet. She tearfully calls his name. YD cautiously says hi. She asks him the same thing she wrote on the wall of that restaurant- “Did you get along well?” YD replies, “No.” She walks closer to her son and wipes the tears that have started to fall down his face. She comments on how tall he has grown, also adding, “My son has become so handsome.” YD speaks the words he has wanted to for so long-”Mom. Mom.” She nods, “Yes,” and urgently hugs him. She cries that she was sorry; she is sorry for not waiting longer then. She was planning to go see him again soon after….but….she just apologizes for not doing so. Young Do hugs his mom tighter in response as they both cry into each other’s shoulders.

HS gives ES some his books. He thanks her, saying, “Thank you, Cha Eun Sang, for being a heartwarming cut (note: like a cut from a movie) in my brutal high school life.” Eun Sang remarks that it sounds like a goodbye. HS just tells her to study hard and the he hopes she and Tan become a boring romance movie. She asks if he is really going somewhere, but he doesn’t answer, just smiling.

Esther is holding a meeting with her designers, when R comes in. After the meeting, E asks for R’s opinion about the new line, and R says she likes it, but she wonders if a high schooler’s opinion matters. Esther assures R that she has an eye for such things.

This episode wasnt nearly as zippy as the last two, but it continues to showcase some fun school scenes that make it all worthwhile. Tan and Young Dos gradual resurrection of their friendship felt like it arrived without a big making up scene, but then I felt like one wasnt needed. Tan was never that angry with Young Do, and the moment the latter stopped being an antagonistic ass they could easily fall back into their comfortable banter and mutual understanding. I suppose the arrival of evil dad and Won at the school for the parent teacher conference was a stark reminder that they have very difficult family situations and perhaps their friendship is the lesser of two evils at present. The scenes where they are washing the windows or watching Eun Sang instead of the book report movie are the bits of throwaway amusing interludes I actually want more of in this drama. Eun Sangs matter of fact behavior with Young Do was also nice to watch, showing us that this drama doesnt have to be all intense crazy emotions and heightened melodrama. Rachel and Hyo Shin took over the what the hell? crown in this episode, though shes way more gone than he is. That she would kiss Hyo Shin to try and ruin his friendship with Tan is both bizarrely nonsensical as well as just lame. That he would kiss her back again to make Hyun Joo jealous is equally as pointless, though hes dealing with lots of stress so Ill give him a pass. Rachels tears over her broken engagement was laughable as well, because if she genuinely liked Tan is debatable but even giving her the benefit of the doubt she sure has a no-means-yes way of showing it. I wish the drama did something with the Won-Hyun Joo relationship other than as a fly by mention with zero emotional heft. Its a giant waste of a plot line not to mention it renders Hyo Shins crush on Hyun Joo just as ineffectual. Its like those three are staging a mime performance off to the side of the stage without a script.

This episode had too much Chairman Daddy, and also kept Tan and Eun Sang away from each other for much too long. At least it jump started the corporate battle for Empire Group, what with the outing of Tans illegitimacy as well as the transfer of shares that has been discussed for so long. Chairman Daddy is intense and scary like we expected, and the choice he gave Eun Sang at the end is way more dire than the usual take money and leave my son cash toss. Im guessing Eun Sangs choice is the latter, spend time now with Tan and get exiled forevermore. I doubt the Chairman will sell her into prostitution or anything horrible like that, more like he might send her to a developing country with limited funds and a second tier school. I wonder how the parents always think they know what is best, when there is still so long a road for the kids to walk until major life decisions need to be made. Its not like Tan is marrying Eun Sang tomorrow, and whats wrong with them dating for now? I guess the idea is not to give Tan any opportunity to have something that comforts him, because this rich world needs to have its leaders be cold and ruthless people. But its nice to see that some of the kids are showing kid emotions in this episode, with Rachels acting out and tears, Hyo Shins resignation, and Young Dos playful assistance. I wonder if the ending is all the kids rising up like Children of the Corn and staging a coup and removing their parents and becoming the rulers rather than the heirs. LOL, Im just joking of course, but I think weve got a pickle in our hands for Tan and Eun Sang and its time to see if they have the guts, brains, and fortitude to fight for what they want. It might not be a lifetime of a promise, but at least they deserve to have the now be with each other. Sadly Young Do doesnt have his own Eun Sang-esque safe harbor like Tan found, and perhaps his happiness will have to come in another story in another drama.

The horrible human being characters in this K-drama continue to show up and bedevil me with their unwelcome presence. Seeing bad people in a drama usually means building up to their comeuppance which is supposed to give us great glee. See them suffer in the end like they heaped suffering on others. Here I don’t having a flying fig what happens to people like the parents in the Kim family, Young Do’s dad and Rachel’s mom, and I especially don’t care what happens to Young Do and Rachel. They are just terribly written characters masquerading with a shred of inner pain but their actions don’t provide them the justification so that the audience can give them the benefit of the doubt. Their redemption or inevitable downfall matters not because they have no credible presence as three dimensional characters. It hurts that all we ever see of them is when they are plotting something or looking resentful. That’s true of all the characters in this drama aside from Eun Sang and Tan, their screen time is devoid of any personal value and instead they function to move forward other plot lines. If I jump ahead to episode 20, what is the final grand resolution or happy ending we can expect? Remember most of these characters are teens in high school. Tan and Won make up, with Won realizing their company is big enough to divide up between then and still have leftovers to run a small island nation? Tan and Eun Sang get the green light to date? Hyun Joo lets Won sleep over and Chairman Daddy lets him marry her? Rachel finds a rich boyfriend who loves her and unthaws her frozen ass? Young Do finds his own poor girl Eun Sang to heal his lonely heart? Bo Na and Chan Young date through college and realize how lucky they were to find compatible opposites attract in each other? The unholy marriage of Zeus and RS International goes through, or not, who cares? Hyo Shin stops puking and maybe gets a life outside of being hot for teacher? Myung Soo stops clubbing? Does seeing any of that make us feel satisfied? Aside from Tan maybe being less miserable with his family, right now nothing I can see down the road has been crafted to make me care when we get there.

I can say now that at least the chemistry is good in this drama, good without anything being great. Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye both could have done an adult drama together and that would’ve tried their talents more and be better served. They have this oddball tension where it’s playful without being sexual, self-aware without being coquettish. It’s like they know their fans have been wanting them to do a drama together and they are trying their best, but it’s acting in a fish bowl with the sensation of being watched. Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin are doing their best to sell the former best friends antagonism and rivalry, but I need to care about both characters to wish for some sort of resolution. Right now I wish Young Do right off a cliff. Choi Jin Hyuk and Im Joo Eun are the most wasted so far, IMO, with their relationship being completely underdeveloped and their characters one-note. Won is just an uptight prick and a needy boy all rolled into one, and there is no context around Hyun Joo so I have nothing to go on with her. I don’t know if Won and her are true love that must overcome evil Chairman Daddy. At least I have something to go on with respect to Eun Sang and Tan. The drama has shown me why he likes her, what she brings to his life, what he brings to her life, and why I should care if they get a chance to make it work. Everyone else can go pound sand, especially Young Do.

I always thought Young Do was interesting but due to Tans descent into love-focused self-absorption it was Young Do that seized the opportunity to win my affection. Hes still got to atone for his sociopathic past but at least hes taken the first steps towards being a self-aware human being. Every scene with him in this episode was wonderful. His meal with Eun Sangs mom was lovely, his noodle break up with Eun Sang was absolutely perfect, and the redux of the scene with the leaving mom looking for her son was the one repeat scene in this drama that felt moving rather than pointless. This episode magically allowed Tan and Eun Sang to be together, but it also sensibly moved Young Do along in how own personal journey. Even Rachel seems to have returned to her haughty but sane self, while Bo Na and Chan Young have firmly been placed into easy to watch friend scene status any much story of their own to ever share. I cant even discuss the inexplicable bed scene with Won and Hyun Joo not to mention their lame conversation. No wonder their romance, or lack thereof, in this drama has been such a chemistry drain. These two cant even show each other their love, much less show the audience. If they get their magical happy ending at the end of episode 20, it would feel like watching strangers wander on set to kiss and get married without any context. At the end of the day, Heirs its heading into its finale week primed for lots of happily ever afters and no tension left to milk. I still dont know what the whole point of the story was, other than to assemble a big pretty cast to shill lots of product placements, which was out of control in this episode with the Kakao talk, the cell phone features, the mango drinks, it was everywhere. There were times this drama showed nuggets of sincerity in every episode but its always buried under the excess. I hope the ending at least ups the genuine satisfaction level so I can walk away feeling decently entertained through a long drama ride.

Deok-heung scoffs that he wouldn’t keep something so important on his person. That’s already back in Ki Chul’s safeguarded drawer. Young tells him, “I’d like you to get it somehow and return it to the doctor.” He says that Eun-soo believes the diary to hold the answer for returning her to heaven, so perhaps Deok-heung could work with her in that goal. He reminds him that if Ki Chul were to figure out the diary’s secret himself, he would have no need of Deok-heung. And that would mean his death.

Deok-heung asks what would Young gain from this. He answers that his mind would rest at ease. Young leaves with a few warnings: These thieves might attack at any moment, and in the future Young may not rescue him, and the doctor is good with knives so he’d better not treat her badly.

Young returns to the palace, where he sees Eun-soo deep in round 1 of her get-rich-in-Goryeo scheme: She hands out soaps to the court ladies and Woodalchi men. “This time is free of charge!”

Kim Woo Hyun (So Ji Sub) is the only son of a high ranking police officer. He entered the police academy ranked first and graduated from the academy ranked first. As a detective, he then joins the cyber investigation department together with Yoo Gang Mi (Lee Yeon Hee). Woo Hyun then works to reveal the secrets of those that hide within the cyber world.

The main poster from “Ghost”(유령) lookedso creepy, Okay i agree with Rizz here. I think So Ji Sub’s expressionless cold face that makes this poster mysterious. if you see the title and this poster, i bet you think this is a horror drama.

But wait a minute, this drama will not involve the spirit or astral creature, the tense is to representing the mysterious cases on crime cyber unit. Actually if you look more clearly beside that cold expression, this pictures content complicated digital codes, and those are related with the drama’s theme, about cyber crime.
