Vampire Detective Episode 12 Recap -FINALE-



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 was 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 organisation. 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. Yo Na calls San after a case and asks for a meeting to which he agrees to and ends up helping her find her ex-lover, Young Kwang. Yoo Jin calls San to tell him to be careful, which only pushes San to try and find Yoo Jin even more.  San succeeds in rescuing Yoo Jin from Tae Woo, which has only made Tae Woo gun for him even more. Now on to this episode!

San stands next to the river and throws a torn up piece of paper in. Yoo Jin comes up next to him and asks since their past is erased if they die would anyone remember them. San promises to remember her, before pulling her into a hug. We re-watch San and Yoo Jin arriving at the hideout.

Tae Woo’s subordinate tells him that if they are to be the head of the organisation, then they must follow the rules. One of which is to kill any fugitives and Yoo Jin can’t be an exception. Tae Woo tells him to never tell him what he thinks again before leaving.

Gyeo Wool is at home and tries to call Goo Hyung to find him not answering. She starts to get worried. Goo Hyung has been beaten severely before Tae Woo comes to see him, asking if he’s ready to talk. When Goo Hyung asks him what he’s looking for, Tae Woo explains that he doesn’t have time to talk about it and ask him where San is. Goo Hyung mentions his friendship with San and Yoo Jin, but he simply tells him that no one can be friends with someone as selfish as San. Goo Hyung comments that his inferiority complex with San is still intact, and when he asks if he’s still obsessed with Yoo Jin, Tae Woo punches him in response.

San makes a call Choi Seon Yeong to get 2 fake Ids and passports with the promise that he’ll explain everything at a later time. When he goes back, Yoo Jin asks who was on the phone and he tells her it was their senior for the police. Yoo Jin assumes that the sun doesn’t affect him, Though he admits that he doesn’t know why he’s the way he is. She had hoped that she could be in the sun again, and be normal however that isn’t a possibility.

Tae Woo’s subordinate comes and hands him Goo Hyung’s cell containing a text from Seon Yeong containing San’s location. He sends his subordinate to get San and Yoo Jin.

Yoo Jin is starting to feel ill from the lack of blood, and San is worried so he leaves her with his inhaler before stepping outside. She tries to stop him but he assures her that he’ll be back. Yoo Jin picks up the inhaler and thinks back to when she was turned into a vampire. San waits outside as she takes her pumps and while he does Tae Woo’s people arrive. San hears them and in Vampire Detective fashion, a huge San verses 10 people fight starts. Once he beats everyone up, he goes and checks on Yoo Jin and she confirms that she’s ok. He leads her to the car while she can’t see.

Seon Yeong arrives at the hideout to find San and everybody else gone, and all of the signs of a struggle in the hideout.

Gyeo Wool is still at home worrying about the two men when Yo Na and all of her men arrive. Yo Na asks for the helper list, and Gyeo Wool isn’t happy to see her. Yo Na tells her that she doesn’t have much time left before everybody is killed. When Yo Na asks for the helper list again, Gyeo Wool asks about her brother. Yo Na tells her that she can tell her about him, however, she believes San is more important. When she Yo Na asks about the USB one more time and Gyeo Wool looks towards Goo Hyung’s computer.

San calls Seon Yeong on the pay phone, then returns to the can. Yoo Jin asks if she’s making things difficult and he tells her she isn’t. Yoo Jin tries to drive home that even if they get away, they will never be safe but San tells her to not lose faith in him. San tells Yoo Jin to close her eyes, and he describes a perfect summer’s day to her. San places her necklace back on and tells her not to lose it again.

Tae Woo’s subordinate comes to him and tell him that they have located Yoo Jin. Tae Woo sends his men to get Goo Hyung.

Gyeo Wool is working on Goo Hyung’s computer to get the helper list, while Yo Na is pacing. She tells Yo Na to stop pacing because it’s distracting her. Yo Na notices that there is a tracking program open on Gyeo Wool’s computer, and she asks if she put a tracker on the USB that she messed with. Gyeo Wool steals back her laptop, and when Yo Na asks her for it, she refuses unless they take her with them.

San and Yoo Jin are coming back from a walk when 2a van and 2 cars pull up. Men come out of the 2 cars and in the van they show San a very beat up Goo Hyung. They threaten to kill Goo Hyung if San and Yoo Jin don’t come with them. This doesn’t leave San much choice when if he does want to protect Yoo Jin.

Yo Na brings Gyeo Wool to the police station and tells her to get out. She warns her that the men that she’s going after aren’t the type of people that she can handle alone. Gyeo Wool asks Yo Na how she can trust her, and Yo Na tells her that she wants to protect the people she loves, just like Gyeo Wool. Gyeo Wool hands Yo Na the USB with the promise of killing her if something goes wrong.

Yoo Jin tells San that Goo Hyung is someone important to him, so she’ll go first and meet him there. Though San is worried, Yoo Jin tells him not to worry.

Gyeo Wool goes inside and gets Detective Park who is eating and physically drags him away.

Tae Woo goes to see Yoo Jin, who is bound to a chair. He promises to show her the price she’ll need to pay for breaking their promise. around the same time, Yo Na arrives at the base and is announced by throwing a person through the door.

Detective Park and Gyeo Wool are heading to the location, while Gyeo Wool remembers the past few days spent with Goo Hyung, San and Se Ra. Detective Park tries to lighten Gyeo Wool’s mood to no avail.

San is in a room when Tae Woo came to see him, and reminds him about what he’s hated about his certainty of his words. San apologises but when he doesn’t say why Tae Woo hits him. Tae Woo tells him that he will give him a gun with 1 bullet and he just has to shoot the 1 of the 2 people sitting there. One is Goo Hyung and the other is Young Kwang. Tae Woo gets men to open the other side of the room and Yoo Jin is sitting there in a room containing the same UV lights that they used on Yo Na. San asks Tae Woo what does he have to gain from this. Tae Woo tells him that regardless who he kills, he wins. San gets given the gun to use and he points it at Tae Woo. He tells him that if he were human, he would die, however, neither of them is human anymore. He tells him that he will shoot to 10 and then Yoo Jin will die.

Screenshot 2016-06-14 00.03.15.png

San fires and Tae Woo can’t believe that he did. He asks them to check who he hit, to discover Yo Na. She gets up and empties a clip into Tae Woo. She goes to him and tells him that he should have managed his hunting dog better if he was going to lay a finger on Young Kwang. When San was handed the gun. Tae Woo’s subordinate tells him that he should be a good hunting dog, which gives him a clue that Yo Na is actually one of the options. Yo Na tells the subordinate to take care of Tae Woo and unties Goo Hyung. Tae Woo attacks the subordinate after he gets shot multiple times to drink his blood.

While San is trying to finish freeing himself Tae Woo attacks him. While he has San pinned up against the wall, he mentions that it seems like he hasn’t had blood for a while. San’s Eyes turn yellow briefly and he suddenly gets much stronger, and an epic fight begins.

Yo Na goes to see Young Kwang, to find him passed out before she gets him outside. She sees the sun peek over the buildings. Young Kwang admits to Yo Na that every time he killed he was scared to the point of not being able to eat or sleep. He tells her that he’s looked forward to the day when he could look at her face as he passes away. Yo Na starts to cry and tells him that she can’t let it end the way it is and wants to turn him into a vampire to stay with her. They both notice the sun rising and Young Kwang hold pulls Yo Na into a hug.

Screenshot 2016-06-14 00.19.45.png

Yoo Jin asks Goo Hyung to bring more help, and he leaves Yoo Jin. San and Tae Woo are still fighting with no end in sight. They both end up in the room with the UV lights when Yoo Jin tells them to stop.

Goo Hyung stumbles outside when Gyeo Wool and Detective Park arrive. They shocked at his appearance. He tells them that they have to get San, and leads them back to him.

Yoo Jin turns on the lights around them after apologising to San. Their relationships flash across the screen as Yoo Jin and Tae Woo die. We step into the image that San created for Yoo Jin in the car.

Screenshot 2016-06-14 00.30.53.png

San is sitting in an empty room holding Yoo Jin’s necklace, and outside the subordinate comes to pick up the helper list from where Yo Na was once.

Goo Hyung, Gyeo Wool, and Detective Park arrive in the room and San is no longer there. One year later they are still looking for San. Detective Park comes to see them because someone made a complaint. Park asks why they’re always there, and they admit that someone saw San there, so that’s why they have their search in that location. Park tells them that if San’s been missing for a year then he might have left the country.

Gyeo Wool calls Goo Hyung and he asks her where she’s been. She reminds him that she promised to return once she’s found San. He asks where she is, and she tells him to do something about the chocolate and rice cakes. He looks up to see her right there. She asks if he wants to go find San, and he asks if she really knows where he is and she confirms that she does. They all leave to go find San.

That’s the end of the season. Thank you for reading and I’ll see you in my next recap. If there is anything you want me to recap just let me know.

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. Yo Na calls San after a case and asks for a meeting to which he agrees to and ends up helping her find her ex-lover, Young Kwang. Yoo Jin calls San to tell him to be careful, which only pushes san to try and find Yoo Jin even more.  Now on to this episode!

We re-watch the scene where Yo Na turns Tae Woo into a vampire after he shot himself in the head. Yo Na gives Tae Woo a glass of blood and warn him that it won’t be as easy as he thought. She asks him if he’s not already regretting his decision, which he denies. Yo Na tells him that since she’s done what he wants, she wants to discuss Jo Myung Guen, but he tells her that they still needed to discuss Yoo Jin.

Tae Woo goes to see Yoo Jin, who is struggling against her bounds. When Tae Woo unties her, Yoo Jin tells him that we have to leave. Tae Woo tells her that they can’t turn back anymore. Yoo Jin doesn’t seem to understand and she tells him that he’s acting odd. He cuts his hand and shows her it healing, he tells her that this is the secret Challenger has been hiding. He promises to try and save her.

San is at the police station when Goo Hyung comes out. The Police chief won’t issue a warrant yet and they have to wait. San starts freaking out and start asking Goo Hyung about the possibility of Tae Woo and Yoo Jin dying but this causes Goo Hyung to tell him to stop. Tae Woo calls Goo Hyung and San takes the phone. Tae Woo tells him that he knows where Myung Guen is but they also have Yoo Jin. He promises that he will save Yoo Jin and tells San that he will send him Myung Guen’s location so he can apprehend him. San freaks out a little after hearing the news.

Once Tae Woo hangs up Yoo Jin asks him what he’s trying to prove. He admits that it’s all up to San now, if he goes to catch Myung Guen he will die honourably, and if he comes to save her San will die by his hand. Tae Woo tells her that she’s all his now, and Yoo Jin asks to kill San herself because if he kills San she won’t be able to look him in the eye. He tells her that he will allow it so long as she becomes a vampire just like him.

Some police officers get ready to go capture Myung Guen, and San breaks from the group. Goo Hyung calls after him and tells him that he needs to follow his orders. San tells him that he promised Yoo Jin to protect her, and after much begging, Goo Hyung lets San go. He gets into the car to  lead the police to Myung Guen’s location, but he has a bad feeling about it.

The police arrive at the location provided in the text and they search for Myung Guen. After a while of searching Park notices a piece of bloodied blanket sticking out of a discarded locker. When Park opens the locker they find Myug Guen dead inside. However, when opening the locker it primed a bomb. Goo Hyung hears the click and sees the bomb timer and pull Park to safety.

San gets to the Challenger building after driving a tad like a maniac. San is running looking for Yoo Jin when he meets with Tae Woo. Tae Woo tells him to look for Yoo Jin down one corridor while he searches another. When San finally finds Yoo Jin and unties her she asks him why did he come. San meets up with Tae Woo again right as they get to the elevator, and San hugs Yoo Jin tight. However, there are men waiting for them in the garage. San goes to fight them head on and Tae Woo and Yoo Jin go around the group.

From this point on we’re re-watching the scene from episode 1 where San fights with a bunch of people and Tae Woo comes back for him in the car. While they’re driving away Yoo Jin asks for the car to be pulled over so she can get some air. Finally, we witness San being shot and the car exploding.

San is in the hospital recuperating and Goo Hyung refuses to leave his side. When San finally wakes up he refuses to eat even though Goo Hyung keep trying to get him too. San keeps replaying Yoo Jin’s last works in his head over, and over again.

Screenshot 2016-06-08 10.53.42.png

Tae Woo comes into Yoo Jin’s room and asks her if she’s ok. She tells him to stop pretending like he cares. Tae Woo leaves her a bottle of blood and tells her to drink it slowly. She insisted that she doesn’t need it and he admits that it’s hard at first. Right before Tae Woo leaves Yoo Jin tells him that she is relieved that she didn’t let San die by his hand. Tae Woo tells her that it doesn’t matter because he dead, but let’s be honest San has only shot closer to his shoulder.

Both San and Yoo Jin sit in their respective bedrooms crying, thinking about their past together.

Goo Hyung packs up his things, and Park asks if he’s really leaving. Goo Hyung tells him that someone needs to take responsibility for the death of 2 colleagues.

Yoo Jin is looking out the small opening in her curtains when Yo Na comes and closes them. She asks if she still misses the sun and if she still has lingering feelings about her past. Yo Na notices San’s necklace and takes it off her. She tells Yoo Jin that thinks like that don’t suit her anymore.

Goo Hyung goes to see San who’s sitting next to the river. San asks how he got there, and he tells him by walking. This bad joke makes San choke back a laugh, and Goo Hyung says it’s good to see him laugh even a little after so many years. He tells him to be worried and hands him his business card, and asks if he wants to join him. San laughs at the idea because one of the investigators was kicked off the police force and the other was shot in the chest. Goo Hyung tells him that even if they can’t solve the case they should at least try and help them.

Screenshot 2016-06-08 11.12.01.png

We’re back to the present and the cab drops San off at a seemingly abandoned warehouse. He looks around and finally comes face to face with Tae Woo. When San recognises him he moves closer but Tae Woo tells him to stop. Tae Woo asks San to never see himself or Yoo Jin ever again.

The next morning Goo Hyung sees San on the stairs and asks him what he did all night. San tells Goo Hyung that Tae Woo and Yoo Jin are alive. Goo Hyung asks if he’s meet with them and San falls silent. Gyeo Wool comes to them and tells them that she made juice, however, the two men are quite solem. San walks by her, and Goo Hyung goes up stairs and she’s left standing there with 3 glasses of juice awkwardly.

Screenshot 2016-06-08 11.17.28.png

Gyeo Wool goes to see Se Ra and starts complaining about the two men and their secrets. Se Ra asks Gyeo Wool why she’s drinking wine in the morning if she made juice, and Gyeo Wool proceeds to offer her a glass. Gyeo Wool asks if she comes off as rude and though Sera says she doesn’t Gyeo Wool believes that no one wants to get close to her since she has a bad personality. Se Ra tells her that San and Goo Hyung cherish her a lot and she seems to be the only person who can’t see it. Se Ra also tells her that San appears to be looking for someone.

Yo Na comes to see Tae Woo and asks where Joo Young Kwang is, and Tae Woo tells her that he hasn’t killed him yet. She warns him not to lay a finger on him, and Tae Woo tells her that once he has what he wants he will let him go unharmed. He pushes the tablet over so she can see what’s going on. Tae Woo tells her that he’s becoming impatient. He tells her to bring him the list of helpers and he won’t drain Young Kwang’s blood. Yo Na tells him that if something happens to him before she returns she promises to kill Yoo Jin in front of him.

San sits in his room thinking about all of the events that have happened between him and his 2 friends. He also thinks about how much Yoo Jin has tried to help him since she was ‘dead’.

Goo Hyung starts drinking soju across from San. San tells him that he met with Tae Woo. Goo Hyung asks that even if they are both alive that he has no idea where to start, and he confirms that he does. Just then Yo Na walks in looking quite sullen. Goo Hyung is confused about the current events and Yo Na tells them that Yoo Jin was killed then brought back to life. She turns to San and tells him that he should understand that better than anyone else. She tells them that they have 1 hours to bring her the helper list, and then she will help San reunite with Yoo Jin.

Just as Gyeo Wool comes home she spots Yo Na leaving. She runs down the stairs and chases the car a little.

Inside San is going through Goo Hyung’s computer and asks him where the list is. Goo Hyung tells him that he doesn’t have it. San tells him that he needs to meet up with Yoo Jin to find out what happened to her. Gyeo Wool comes in demanding answers about Yo Na but Goo Hyung keeps deflecting and San stay quiet. Goo Hyung finally tells her that she’s a client and she wants they to look into her cheating lover. Goo Hyung asks Gyeo Wool to look for a USB so he can send some information to a client.

Yo Na’s car stops and she thinks back to when she and Young Kwang first met and lived together as humans. San and Goo Hyung are about to leave but San reminds him about their equipment. Goo Hyung agrees that it might be dangerous and tells him he’ll be right back but San leaves without him. San meets up with Yo Na can give her the list, and Yo Na hands over an address on a piece of paper telling him that this will be their last time. In the folded paper is Yoo Jin’s necklace. San leaves upon seeing it, and Yo Na calls Tae Woo.

Screenshot 2016-06-08 12.02.08.png

Tae Woo meets Yo Na at the same place San did and he tells her that she called much sooner than he thought. Yo Na asks if Young Kwang is alive and where he’s being held. Tae Woo tells her that he is alive, but as too his location it will have to wait until they check the list. When they check there seems to be a computer virus that is let loose on the computer. Tae Woo asks what’s going on but by the look on her face she didn’t know either, then Tae Woo gets news that the men guarding Yoo Jin were attacked.

Meanwhile, San gets to the building and fights his way to Yoo Jin’s rooms. After fighting god knows how many men, San nonchalantly gets into an elevator. San gets to Yoo Jin’s floor and walks with purpose to her door.

Gyeo Wool comes into the living room to find Goo Hyung pacing the room. Gyeo Wool tells him that she put a tracker on the USB. After Goo Hyung asks her, she admits that she did a few other things to the USB and he explodes at her about the USB being important. She asks why they left her out of everything. She asks if it was Yo Na again and he just tuts her.

San enters the room (that isn’t locked?) and comes face-to-face with Yoo Jin. Yoo Jin starts to cry in front of San with out saying a word San walks over to her and hugs her tight. She pushed him away telling him that he can’t be there with her. She tells him that he saw her die, so just pretend that she is dead. She accidently scratches San with a pen and she watches his wound heal. She knows right away what he is, though he doesn’t. San tries to get her to leave but she tells him that either way they can’t run.

Screenshot 2016-06-08 12.10.12.png

Tae Woo comes back to the building to find all of his men laying prone on the floor. Tae Woo heads to Yoo Jin’s room. Tae Woo arrives to find the room empty.

San gets Yoo Jin into his car and starts driving. He asks her after a moment if she’s okay. She mentions that Tae Woo will chase them, and San tells her that he can’t be apart from her again, so they’ll find a way.

Goo Hyung asks Gyeo Wool to trace the USB again. Gyeo Wool tells him that she’s coming with and he begs her to stay at the house. He promises to tell her everything when he comes back. When Goo Hyung get to the building he meets up with Tae Woo. He admits that he didn’t think he was still alive. Goo Hyung asks Tae Woo where San is, and Tae Woo admits that he wanted to asks him the same question. Tae Woo decides that he will use Goo Hyung as bait to find San.

While driving, Yoo Jin asks why San isn’t asking her about how she became a vampire. He tells her that she probably doesn’t want to talk about it. They arrive at an abandoned building right before sunrise. He covers her with a blanket and walks her to the building, after check it was empty. He covers the windows for her.

Vampire Detective Episode 5 recap



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.

Vampire Detective Episode 4 Recap



Here’s a 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 gets inject with a blood serum that heals him no matter what and turns him into something similar to a vampire. Later the trio was 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 what they see as an illegal organisation. San later gets a call from an old cop acquaintance, Choi Seon Yeong, to help her figure out her father’s will. He figures out the combo to the safe and finds the actual will, however in the safe, there are pictures for Yoo Jin and Kang Tae-Woo (Jo Bok Rae) that her father, Jang Tae Shik (Choi Gwi Hwa), would have used to make fake ids.

The opening of the show is at a photo shoot. Later that same model is found dead in her apartment with slashed wrists. San meets up with Seon Yeong again after she looked into the connection between Tae Shik, Yoo Jin and Tae Woo. San starts to wondering if they are still working on an undercover on the same or a different undercover mission. Goo Hyung gets called about a new case and San gets escorted out of the house as soon as he gets back from meeting Seon Yeong.

They go to meet their client but the meet with a blind woman called Moon Mi Jin (Lee Chung Ah) whose brother, she believes, was framed for the murders of the two models. She claims to have heard her brother in his dark room at the time of one of the murders. The police don’t believe her since she is blind, and at the beginning even they are sceptical. Gyeo Wool makes them accept the case since she has a soft spot for sisters who are at risk of losing their brothers since she had only just recently lost Gyo Min. There was only one issue, however, Moon Gyeong Ho has already confessed to the murders and the murder weapon was found in their apartment.

There were some similarities to the two murders, both Chae Yu Ri and Jeong Ha Na, had just come home from a  photo shoot and the were later found dead with wrists sliced in their bathrooms. By chance both of their last calls were to Gyeong Ho.

While looking into Gyeong Ho’s past they find out that Doctor Hwang’s (Kim Ki Moo) assistant Se Ra (Jei) worked with him in the past while she was attending a modelling academy. Since Se Ra believes that she has a close relationship with Gyeong Ho, she sincerely believes that he wouldn’t kill the woman like he confessed.

While they were there Dr Hwang pulled San aside to discuss Gyo Min’s notebook that they recovered from the house they were staying at prior to their deaths. He advises San that it contains a blueprint for a blood that doesn’t exist in the real world. Well anywhere than his blood that is. Due to them not knowing how the blood will react they don’t know if there will be any adverse affects to him having it flowing through his veins.

After their conversation with Se Ra, they start looking into who would benefit from the two models deaths. They find out that neither of them was going to re-sign their contracts with their agency so they look into not only the CEO but also the new #1 model that took their place. The CEO of the company admits to being at a loss and is freaking out about how much money they’re losing due to their deaths. The new model, Joo Ha Young didn’t really seem to care either way about their deaths and didn’t notice anything different the last few days before their deaths. She also told them about the rumour that Ha Na pointed towards the killer.

San meets with the corner and finds out that the slashes were actually to cover up puncture wounds that looked to have been made by an ice pick. When San hears that he tries to meet with Gyeong Ho but he refuses to see him.

Detective Park (Ahn Se Ha) sends over the crime scene photos so that they can look into them, but he advises Goo Hyung that the police force is so happy that they had solved such a high profile case.

When they start reviewed the case they tried to find any clues that they police might have missed. They examine the clue that pointed to Gyeong Ho, which is the initials M M which is Gyeong Ho’s initials. San also advises the other 2 about the wounds. They slowly realise that they never checked Gyeong Ho’s dark room while they were at the apartment. So they go back to the apartment, but since Mi Jin is not there Gyeo Wool breaks into the apartment for them. They were a little shocked when they arrived at the dark room as the walls were completely covered in pictures of women’s legs. San notices a DSLR that seemed out of place in the dark room. Mi Jin came back while they were looking through the dark room, but they managed to sneak out due to her being blind.

There was only 1 picture on the DSLR and it was corrupt so they bring the SD card to Dr Hwang who is good with computers, though he threatens to charge them extra. While they were looking at the picture on the computer San noticed that the picture’s properties didn’t match up with the camera that the SD card was in. Due to the discrepancy, they came to the conclusion that the SD card was swapped out.


Goo Hyung calls Detective Park and gets them in to see the crime scene. San uses his new powers and looks at the message that Ha Na wrote in blood to discover it was actually VV that she had written not MM, the water had made the blood run (Very strategically, only on the ends). However due to a large amount of blood in the bathroom San needs to use his inhaler to calm down. When Goo Hyung comes across him he gets him out of the bathroom.

Later while they’re reviewing the information again, San tells them about how he believes that the blood smeared and the original message was VV and instead of it being initials it was a picture of the last thing that she saw. After this revelation, San goes back to the prison and finally gets to see Gyeong Ho. He shows him the last message that Ha Na wrote and he looks shocked at the image.

Meanwhile, Goo Hyung met with Detective Park and found out that Moon Mi Jin is not Moon Gyeong Ho’s sister like she claimed. Detective Park then shows Goo Hyung the picture of Mi Jin (Kim Nan Hee) which is not that same woman that they know as Mi Jin. Goo Hyung gets Detective Park to send him the picture that he showed him, and he flipped it to San. San they showed the Picture to Gyeong Ho and confirms that the picture is Mi Jin.

Right after hanging with Goo Hyung, Dr Hwang finished decrypting the image and sent it to San. San shows Gyeong Ho the image which was who they thought was Mi Jin, but it turns out that it was, in fact, the person who threatened him into confessing to the murders.

The Vampiress, who we later find out is called Yo Na but for simplicity, I will use it now, calls San and tells him that she knows about his past. She also hints that she also knows about Yoo Jin and his personal connection with her. She tells San that he has 1 hour to come to her location or else she will kill Ji Min.

While Ji Min and Ya No wait for San, Ji Min still holds on to the fact that Gyeong Ho is such a good man and he would never kill anyone. Ya No tells Ji Min about how her accident that left her blind, wasn’t an accident but in fact, Gyeong Ho who had done that to her. Though at first Ji Min doesn’t believe Ya No, but slowly she starts believing it.

San Goo Hyeung go back to Gyeong Ho’s apartment to find Mi Jin alone. When they get her off of the chair there seems to be a trigger for a bomb, however, it was filled with confetti. However, Ji Min was shocked from the explosion so they took her to the hospital. While waiting in the parking lot Gyeo Wool met up with the Ya No and felt hurt since she lied to her, and exploited her weakness for sisters. She warns her to no longer trust anyone and tells her that she reminds her a lot of her brother Gyo Min. When the guys come back Gyeo Wool tells them the new information and states how she is going to look into the woman.

San goes back to see Ji Min and lets her know that the police will start looking into the model’s deaths and that Gyeong Ho will probably be found innocent. Ji Min tells him that she knows about her accident and how he Gyeong Ho was the cause and she will not be able to forgive him.

Yo Na calls San to talk, and after he probes just a little bit she tells him her name. She also gives him a hint that the woman that he’s been looking for (Yoo Jin) looks very good on camera.

He called in a favour with Seon Yeong and gets her to pull the CCTV footage from the hospital parking garage. While reviewing it at the end of the episode, he catches a glimpse of Yoo Jin taking pictures of Ya No.

I love this episode and how much much this season is filling out the story, but I can’t wait until San find out what he is turning into. I can’t wait for the next episode.

Vampire Detective Episode 1 Recap


Due to my dislike for historical dramas, even those with Jang Guen Suk in them, and Soju night’s busy schedule, I’m switching to Vampire Detective. Soju Night will continue with the recaps of Daebak, and I will start Vampire Detective (Which I’m really enjoying)


source: Viki

The episode starts while the main character, Yoon San (Lee Joon) is at the police academy with Kang Tae- Woo (Jo Bok-Rae) and Jung Yoo-Jin (Kim Yoon-Hye). The three of them get an assignment to go undercover in a criminal organisation to take them down. However, Yoo-Jin and Tae-Woo betray San. Yoo-Jin shoots San and leaves him to die on the side of the road, however as they drive away their car explodes. This will be important later!

With the 10 minutes that you get, you see Jo Bok-Rae and Kim Yoon-Hye I couldn’t really get a feel of their acting styles or abilities. Yoon-Hye did manage to show off some nervous energy when the trio is standing in front of the office, and you could see a little sadness in her features when she shoots Lee Joon. However, it’s hard to really size up their acting abilities.

Fast-forward to 5 years later, San is living with Yong Goo-Hyung (Oh Jung-Se) after he recovered from his wounds. They run a private detective business. They get called in to consult on a case by Detective Park. You get to see that San is a very good detective, and solves the case within minutes of entering the scene.  This is unrealistic however I’ll let it slide since this drama does have vampires in it, so let us all forgive the mini-Sherlock Holmes action here.

While they’re out, Han Gyeo-Wool (Lee Se-Young) breaks into their house. She asks them to follow Han Gyo-Min (Jae Hee) because she is worried that he might be doing something illegal. She introduces him to San and Goo-Hyung as her boyfriend, though the quickly find out he’s actually her brother.

Their investigation brings them, twice, to a vampire night club. Though they don’t know what it is, they think that it’s an illegal organisation who’s selling blood on the black market… They aren’t far off, but they’re using it for a different reason than most. As the viewer, you find out that both Han Gyo-Min and Yeon Joo (Han Soo-Yeon) became a vampire because Yeon Joo was bitten by a patient and in turn bit Gyo-Min when she was low on blood. Gyo-Min had attempted to make a blood serum that even if you’re dying would bring you back to life and succeeded.

The vampire bar seems to be run by a woman, and you never really see her face. You do see her necklace which matches the necklace that Yoo-Jin would wear, but she was apparently killed in the car explosion… Or was she… The framing of the scene made it appear that the unknown woman knew San.  The cinematography of that scene is very pretty, and I was impressed that even without the female saying a thing you could tell what she was thinking.

Since there needs to be death in any good show, the vampire owner of the club Goatee come’s to Yeon Joo’s house and tries to kill San. Yeon Joo sacrifices herself to catch the owner on fire, but while he burns he manages to shoot San in the chest. Since Gyo-Min had succeeded in making the blood serum, he injects San with it which heals him and then commits suicide.

This drama is fast-paced and the episode was filled with action. The cinematography in this drama is fluid. I love this show so far. Lee Joon is perfect in his role. He advised reporters that he took the role to push
