Here’s a not so quick recap of the story so far! While looking into Han Gyo Min (Jae Hee) disappearance, San (Lee Joon),Gyeo Wool (Lee Se-young) and Goo Hyung (Oh Jung-se) stumble across a vampire bar. After a shootout San got inject with a blood serum that heals him no matter what, and turns him into something similar to a vampire. Later the trio were hired to protect the newscaster Seo Seung-Hee (Choi Song-hyun), and while figuring out that case San uncovers more information out about the vampire bar and how they obtain their food supply. The more that San looks into the case there are more links there are to Jung Yoo Jin (Kim Yoon-hye) being part of an illegal organization. San later gets a call from an old cop acquaintance, Choi Seon Yeong, and he help her get into her father’s safe where they find pictures of Yoo Jin and Kang Tae-Woo (Jo Bok Rae) that her father, Jang Tae Shik (Choi Gwi Hwa), would have used to make fake ID’s. The trio is hired to clear Moon Gyeong Ho of murder charges, which they do, however their client isn’t who they say they were but in fact a woman by the name of Yo Na (Lee Chung Ah) who seems to have a connection to Yoo Jin. Now on to this episode!

The opening scene is of a crew shooting a movie and some technical issues happen. The actress, Yoon Seol Ah, is told to take a break while they sort everything out. While in her van with the CEO of her company Yoon Young Rin, Seol Ah notices a package and when she inquires about it Young Rin simply tells her she believes it’s from a fan. When Seol Ah opens it, she is greeted with a dead bird and multiple threatening pictures.

San visits Jeong Ji Woong in prison once more to ask him about the relationship between Yo Na and Yoo Jin. Ji Woong looks a little shocked but he leans towards the glass and tells San that he has already warned him to stay away from that woman since she’s the devil incarnate. He should just enjoy his life while he can and when it’s time she will come looking for him. He also told him that he will refuse any further visits from him.

All day Goo Hyung meets with bad client after bad client and starts giving up hope in finding a good client to work with. Young Rin come into the office to see them about Seol Ah’s case. Due to the threatening letters, San asks her why she hadn’t gone to the police which she states that she had and they actually referred her to them because they could deal with this in a discreet manner. So Young Rin hires them to protect Seol Ah from Lee Ki Hyung who is a crazy fan who just got released from prison and they believe he is behind the letter.

San and Goo Hyung go to the shooting range here Seol Ah is practicing for a role she just accepted. San casually tells her she should change her stance to have a better accuracy with the gun. At this point Seol Ah asks who they are, and they find out Young Rin hadn’t told her about the protection detail. Seol Ah is completely against having bodyguards, saying that she has Min Soon, who is her road manager, and she believes that she can protect herself. Gyeo Wool being her mentions that since she knows how to use a gun she can obviously protect herself. Seol Ah is obviously not happy with her sharp tongue and fires back that Gyeo Wool should be able to take down a terrorist. Goo Hyung tells Seol Ah if she was aware that Ki Hyung was out on parole, and stresses that she could be in serious danger. She finally agrees so long as they can protect her without it looking like they are bodyguards to which they agree. San tells Seol Ah that she can continue living her life as per normal just they’ll be in the background.

Goo Hyung meets up with Detective Park (Ahn Se Ha) at a food stall to get more information about Ki Hyung. He finds out that Ki Hyung uses to be a cab driver who killed 2 people allegedly for Seol Ah, however, the 2 women and no connection with her. Detective Park gives Goo Hyung Ki Hyung’s address but tells him that even though he has been under surveillance they haven’t been able to reach him for the past few days, so he is missing.

On set, Seol Ah introduces San to Min Woo as her schedule manager and Gyeo Wool as her new stylist. Min Woo had heard about San from Young Rin. When Seol Ah reviews Gyeo Wool’s wardrobe she tells her to return everything and selects an outfit for the day’s shooting. I’m just going to take a short break out of the recap and say yes please! Lee Jon is looking good in the suit.

Goo Hyung brings the bird to Doctor Hwang (Kim Ki Moo) who threatens to charge him more due to the dead bird and Goo Hyung agrees to discuss the rate. He starts talking with Sa Re (Jei) and finds out that the bird is the same species that she raises. Also, she adds on a zoology degree on top of everything else she has. Hwang pulls out a death tarot card from under the bird, and the card has a dead bird on it. Since a bird on a tarot card is seen as the bringing of popularity, they can only assume that the dead bird is a death threat.

On set San starts talking to Min Woo who admits that he always wanted to be Seol Ah’s manager because he really likes her, however, he states that it’s more than simply being a fan. He also mentions that he finds Gyeo Wool attractive. San probes about any suspicious people who may have been hanging around as well as Seol Ah’s relationship with Park Joon Young whom she doesn’t get along with very well. Joon Young, however, did try to put the moves on Gyeo Wool and she warns him not to touch her again and if he does she’ll break his hand.

While waiting for filming to start San starts to hear something similar to sawing however he can not pinpoint it. The sawing stops and Eun Chae, Seol Ah’s co-star, introduces herself to San and Gweo Wool. San inquires about Joon Young’s relationship and finds out that they were once together but have since broken up, however Joon Young is still hung up on Seol Ah.

Goo Hyung goes to Ki Hyung’s place and finds it empty just like Detective Park said it would be.

Seol Ah tells Gyeo Wool to go make her coffee, however, San takes the coffee before Gyeo Wool can serve he coffee tainted with cigarette water. Gyeo Wool vents at San about how she feels being ordered around by Seol Ah. Meanwhile, a segment of the set comes loose and starts to fall, lucky for Seol Ah that San is there because he saves her. Once he sits up he starts scanning the crew to see all of their reactions, and most of them are in shock.

San calls the CEO and Goo Hyung to report what had happened. While San and Goo Hyung examined the set piece the notice that the ropes seem frayed. They check the ropes in the rafters and there are some noticeable signs of tampering. San examines the crew and states that he is sure that the culprit is in the room, however, he doesn’t know who it is.

San takes Seol Ah to the firing range to teach her how to shoot. She thanks him for saving her life, she also apologises for not saying it earlier in front of everyone else. She explains that she always needs to be strong in front of people so she always comes off as angry. She is worried that is Ki Hyung were to show up she wouldn’t be able to shoot him. He tells her that all she has to do is believe and it’ll be fine. With a little of San’s help, she manages to hit the bullseye. As a present, San gives her taser.

San gets a phone call telling him that someone broke into Seol Ah’s home. When they get there a mannequin in dressed in her dress and shredded with more threatening photographs thrown around it. Seol Ah is a little shaken since they had recently change the code to her condo. She requests that San stay with her for the night to make her feel better.

While Goo Hyung and Gyeo Wool are on their way back to the office he gets a call from Hwang to tell him that the needle that was found in the bird wasn’t a normal needle but in fact an acupuncture needle.

Seol Ah and San go to her acupuncture clinic where San waits for her in the lobby. He meets up with Eun Chae again where she hints that she is having difficulty as an actress. A masks man sneaks into Seol Ah’s room and touches her leg. She screams and San comes running to her, after checking to make sure she is ok he runs after the man. In the stairwell the man tries to ambush San with a 2×4  and this time instead of stopping it with his head, he breaks it with a punch. It turns out the masked man was Joon Young and he claims he just wanted to talk with her.

Meanwhile, Young Rin gets a package containing a windup carousel, but when she winds it a small bomb goes off. San and Seol Ah go to the hospital to check on her. Though Gyeo Wool is certain the Joon Young  did it the 2 guys are uncertain, regardless San tells her to dig into him while they go Young Rin’s office to check out the crime scene.

Thanks to there being a little bit of Young Rin’s blood at the crime scene San was able to see what happened right before the bomb went off. Goo Hyung finds a saw in her drawers that could match with the saw used on the ropes. That matched with how light her wounds were suspicions start piling up against her.

While Gyeo Wool is doing a background check on Joon Young, Seol Ah comes to give her some coffee and apologise for how she treated her on set. Seol Ah feels connected to her since they are both hiding who they really are. Though Gyeo Wool tells her that she likes hiding because it makes her believe that she can be the person she’s pretending to be. She asks Seol Ah if she believes that Joon Young could be behind the attacks, and she tells her that the man she knows wouldn’t have been able to commit these crimes.

San meets with Seol Ah to get a feel of her sister when the calls come in that the saw is a match to the one that tampered with the ropes. San tells Seol Ah, and since she trusts her sister completely she tells him that he’s fired and to stop looking into the incidences since it can’t be her sister. San agrees with her and tells Goo Hyung and Gyeo Wool that it’s probably not what they think.

San and Goo Hyung goes to the shoot anyways and watches from the sidelines. San tells Goo Hyung that the way that magicians perform their trick is to get the audience to focus on the wrong hand, and they have been focusing on the wrong hand. They were shooting a film where the car the Seol Ah is being saved from explodes. Right as the start filming the door locks and can’t be opened. The crew tries opening the door but it won’t budge, and the kill switch for the explosive doesn’t work so the crew scatters. San is thankfully there and he rips the door off and saves her.

We find out that Min Soon’s mother was one of Ki Hyung’s victims and he couldn’t forgive him or Seol Ah. Right after San saves Seol Ah, Min Soon pulls a knife and has a really sad fight with San, since San is superhuman. Min Soon is arrested and questioned by Detective Park.

San talks with Seol Ah, Young Rin and Eun Chae about Min Soon not doing this alone. He reveals the Eun Chae is the one who sent the dead bird and tampered with the set. She admitted that she hated Seol Ah because Young Rin was always focused on her and never helped herself. San reveals that the only reason the Seol Ah was playing this role was to land her the star spot in the next drama.

The episode closes with San receiving a phone call from Yo Na and agreeing to meet with her. Will they meet in the next episode? I hope so.

Sorry guys these are getting longer and longer aren’t they 😛 Though to be fair this last week’s episode had a lot to cover fingers cross they become simpler to recap next week again.
