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. Yo Na calls San after a case and asks for a meeting to which he agrees to. Now on to this episode!

Ji Woong gets left at a peer by a driver and gets handed a new identity. He tells the driver to tell Yo Na not worry since he is an expert and changing identities. After the driver leaves Tae Woo and a group of men come to see Ji Woong. He reminds him that he should be scared of him and Ji Woong warns him about Yo Na. They get into a fight where Ji Woong pulls a knife, and you would think that it would give him the advantage over an unarmed man. However when he does stab him multiple times in the gut it doesn’t seem to bother him. Tae Woo took the knife and stabs Ji Woong multiple times telling him again that it’s him who he needs to be scared of, and them seem to leave him as dead.

San arrives at the club to find Gyeo Wool, Goo Hyung, Doctor Hwang and Se Ra already there. San is really confused however Goo Hyung things that San arranged this so that it would cheer him up. San gets called up to see Yo Na and when he steps forward her bodyguard stops him. There is then a fight between him and the bodyguard until Yo Na tells them to stop. She invited him here to prove to him that she is the owner and he is the hunting dog.

They walk through the club into the back alley and San notices the vampiric activity and asks her if she made them that way. She doesn’t answer but instead makes a formal request to have San find someone for her. He asks why he should agree and she tells him that if he doesn’t his friends will be killed. She also tells him that if he tries to save them, they will also be killed. She tells him that the club is open until 6am and he has until that time to find the person she’s looking for. San is given the keys to the car and he and Yo Na get into the car.

San drives them to an empty warehouse, and Yo Na tells him that he should sniff around. He tells her that he is only going along with this because of his friends. When San gets out of the car Yo Na pulls out an old photo of Joo Young Kwang. She reminisces about the day she was eating breakfast with her mum and Dal Soo and he arrives. She fell in love at first sight with him, and we find out that Yo Na’s original name is Eun Hye.

San goes through the warehouse and sees a spill on the ground that contain blood and he sees the person break the bottle. He goes through the file room and find paperwork for the King Salon. He also looks through the trash where he finds a receipt for an order of UV lights. He hears something and goes after it. He sees someone but couldn’t catch up with him. He meets up with Yo Na and asks who that was. She stipulates that it looks like there are rats about, and he asks if there are more which she doesn’t know. He shows her what he found about the Salon, and before they leave San asks if the man that they are looking for is even human.

Yo Na and San arrive at the salon and he asks for a trim. The barber asks if it’s his first time, which he admits it is. While he is shaving him, he asks the barber if he knows Young Kwang, because he was there the day before. The barber tells him to stop talking so he doesn’t cut him. San asks again and 2 guys who are at the counter stand and the barber mentions that he wants to finish this quickly because there are other customers. Yo Na mentions that they are too neat for being customers. San twists the barber’s arm and wipes off shaving cream and beats up the 2 other guys with the towel. Yo Na steps on the throat of the barber and tells him that if he doesn’t talk she will kill him. San notices him looking at the phone and sees that there are multiple calls to and from Blue Moon bar.

Back at the bar, Goo Hyung is dancing with a woman and Se Ra is jealous she is determined to with Goo Hyung over. When Se Ra heads to the dance floor Gyeo Wool wonders if Goo Hyung won the lottery. Doctor Hwang tells her that it’s a war amongst women and she should go up. She tells him that in war it is best to be neutral.

While they are driving Yo Na notices that they have picked up a tail so they lure them to a secluded area. San has another fight scene and Yo Na thinks back to the time that she was running late and Young Kwang gave her a lift on his bike. She tells him that he will be a cool doctor and he tells her that he’s much prefer to be a good doctor over a cool one. She teases him if he is her doctor, and he tells her that if she’s sick he will nurse her back to health forever. There seems to be mutual attraction between them. When Yo Na was dropped off her friend Soo Yeon asked about him and she tells her that he’s the new exchange student living in their house.

When the tail receives a phone call Yo Na answers it. She tells the person on the other end that if they are following her it means that they haven’t found him yet. She also tells him to not worry about his runner because she’ll take care of him.

Back in the car Yo Na tells San that he is not the only one with a time frame, she’s worried that if she doesn’t find Young Kwang tonight that she’s scared he’ll die. They arrive at a store to find it open at 3 am which they find odd. They find the owner and San asks about Young Kwang. Yo Na notices that the wine that she’s drinking contains blood and asks her why. The owner simply hands them a business card to a bar.

Yo Na goes to freshen up her makeup and thinks back to a shopping trip she had with Soo Yeon. (Yeah there is a lot of flashbacks but we’re learning about Yo Na). They are shopping and there is a floral dress that catches Yo Na’s eye. She doesn’t have enough money for it, and isn’t sure that’ll it’ll be there in a few days. She sees Young Kwang and calls to him, and he responds. They walk home and he asks about Soo Yeon, which Yo Na takes as him being interested him her so she tells him if he’s interest he should give it a try and walks away. The next morning she’s still mad and Young Kwang tries to make it right. Soo Yeon shows up wearing the dress that she wanted to buy, because Dol Soo is bugging her to go to the river she yells at him and leaves. Young Kwang finds her out back and asks her why she’s so angry. She admits she doesn’t know, but Soo Yeon showed up wearing the dress she wanted and she didn’t like the he was staring. Young Kwang suddenly understands so he scotches over and kisses Yo Na

Gyeo Wool is worried about San since they haven’t seen him since earlier, however Se Ra and Goo Hung only want to dance. She tries calling him again, still no answer. Gyeo Wool goes to the bathroom to wash her hands and she sees someone washing blood off her hands. Gyeo Wool gets a really bad feeling and tells them that they should leave. This falls on deaf ears however because Se Ra and Goo Hyung still want to dance and they drag Doctor Hwang on the dance floor as well. When Gyeo Wool goes to leave, she’s threatened by the staff that it would be best if she stays until San returns.

Yo Na and San goes to the bar and Yo Na asks the bartender if he knows Young Kwang. He tells her that he’s not there and San mentions that she asked if he knew him, not if he was there. He offers a deal that he will tell them the information they need if they look for someone for him. Yo Na tells him when they have more time and San promises that they will look for Min Tae Yeon after they find Young Kwang.

One last memory! Yo Na and her family were waiting for Young Kwang to celebrate her birthday. They think that they hear him. However when Young Kwang does arrive he finds everyone dead, and Yo Na is just barely holding on. However instead of healing, she turns into a vampire. He takes her to the hospital and finds her feeding on another patient, and he realises that he needs to find a solution.

Screenshot 2016-05-10 12.55.05

Young Kwang starts killing people and harvesting blood for her. At first it really bothers him but then it just becomes routine. One day he arrives home to find Yo Na missing, and when he goes searching for her, he finds her feeding on a man. He tells her off for leaving the apartment and she tells him that it’s been 10 years, how much longer does she have to hide. He kills the man and tells her he refuses to let blood stain her hands. He starts working for an organization that distributes blood. One day Young Kwang refuses Yo Na’s advances because he’s become a monster because of her, and she mentions that no one ever asked for him to become a monster. He tells her that it was a sacrifice that he made for her. Yo Na reminds him that a human’s sacrifice ends in death and he admits that nothing lasts forever.

Yo Na meets up with a much older Young Kwang, and hugs him. She tells him that they have to leave. Soo Yeon comes out and is in shock for seeing her friend for the first time in years and she hasn’t aged. Yo Na puts two and two together and asks Young Kwang to choose between her and Soo Yeon. Young Kwang confesses that he has always wanted to be her sun, however he is too old and too tired to be any good to her. Yo Na tells San to kill Soo Yeon but he tells her to think about it.

Yo Na reacts and bits Soo Yeon’s neck and tells Young Kwang that it’s over and he should come with her. He tells her that he shouldn’t have helped her stay alive, and she should have died. He tells her that he needs to stop the evil he helped create. He turns on UV lamps which burn Yo Na however San takes off his jacket and covers her until the lights turn off.

San sees Tae Woo and runs after him. By the time he gets to the alley he is already driving away in the car and he has hurt again. He screams in agony before running back to Yo Na.

Back at the club, there is a countdown until 6am. What will happen to his friend? We’ll find out next week.

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.

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. Now on to this episode!

San goes to see Yo Na as planned and her guards attack him. he manages to beat a few of them off before they catch him and force him to his knees. Yo Na comes over to him and tells him that she is sure that he has a lot of questions for him, however, she simply wanted to meet to clarify their relationship. She tells him that he will never be her match and he will soon see who the owner and who the hunting dog is.

The team is at a school briefly and San says that the culprit is Goo Hyung, however, we pop back in time before the situation. Gyeo Wool sees the highschool reunion invitation on Goo Hyung’s desk and he tells her to not poke around people’s things. She tells him that is was on his desk. She asks him is he’s going to go, and he told her that he wasn’t planning on it because all they would be doing is reminiscing and he doesn’t feel like going. She teases him about being nervous of  going and he tells her that she wouldn’t understand but he was a heartbreaker back then. She asked if there was a female version, which he confirms that there was. Gyeo Wool wants to go to see how pretty she is but Goo Hyung tells her she can’t come, and goes outside.

San is worried about him and asks him what he’s looking at. He shows him the only picture he has of everyone from his class. He points out himself and the prettiest girl Lee Soo Yeon. San asks him if he keeps in contact with her, which he says that he doesn’t. Right then Kim Ji Hyun walks right past their office and calls to him, he recognises her right away.

She is sure that she is certain he’s surprised she came to look for him. She asks if he is coming to the class reunion which he tells her that he’s busy so she can’t come. She understands, and tells him that the school building being torn down this year. He reminds her that he didn’t really graduate, and she remembers that he dropped out and got his GED instead. She asks him to help her with something personally.

Goo Hyung and San meet up with Detective Park at a restaurant, and Detective Park is preaching about the benefits of eating pig skin. Goo Hyung is drinking in his little corner and San tries to get him to stop. Goo Hyung asks Detective Park why he became a police Officer which he fires right back, however Goo Hyung tells him that he’s a coward and continues to drink. Detective Park tells San to leave him alone and let him drink.

The next day San, Gyeo Wool and Goo Hyung head to his home town for the reunion. Gyeo Wool is over the moon looking at the ocean and Goo Hyung tells him that she needs to stop it, and she complains that he is a buzz kill.

When they arrive they are greeted by the teacher and escorted to the room where everyone is congregated. They are all surprised to see him and he introduces his colleagues to the group. They all started comparing their professions and Im Mi Ra asks if Goo Hyung is good at what he does. Gyeo Wool mentions that he isn’t swimming in money but he is good.

They continue their party and drink on school grounds, and they mention that it feels weird that they were drinking on school property and Ji Hyun mentioned that they had drank that night when they were supposed to be star gazing. A bunch of started remembering that is ended up being cloudy that night and they couldn’t see anything so instead the drank and played games. At one point Gyeo Wool asks about the pretty girl and everyone fell silent and San tells her to stop talking about it.

San follows Goo Hyung outside and he tells him that there was comet who was supposed to come close to earth that evening and everyone was excited. However, the night was cloudy just like this evening. When San asks about the girl, Goo Hyung tells him that that night she had died.

Ji Hyun suggests that they play the same game that they played the night of the accident. Mi Ra, Jae Wook and Mi Sook don’t really want to play however since San, Gyeo Wool and Goo Hyung agrees on majority rules and they end up playing. The 1st round happens and Mi Sook has to slap Goo Hyung who tells her not to worry about it and instead she lightly punches his face. 2nd round Gyeo Wool needs to kiss San however she refuses so she chugs a bottle of soju. The 3rd round happens and Goo Hyung refuses to read the card and San read it instead 3 must kill 5.

Ji Hyun admits to wanting to know what happened to Soo Yeon 20 years earlier, and she doesn’t believe that she committed suicide. She wants to cover this story for her first broadcast. Mi Ra thinks that Ji Hyun is nuts and Goo Hyung admits it is a little odd that the case was swept under the rug like it was nothing. Goo Hyung mentions that he believes that tonight might be the last time they can find out truth. Mi Ra accused Goo Hyung that the real reason that he showed up for the first time in years and that’s why he brought his colleagues. San admits that he didn’t know what was going and Gyeo Wool seconds that.

Ji Hyun mentioned that it was curious that Soo Yeon’s body was found with the card number 5 next to her. After the odd mission was read they took the break  from the game and Mi Ra and Ji Hyun stayed in the classroom, and they mentioned that it was a while since they saw Soo Yeon. They ran to investigate after they heard a scream and they found Soo Yeon’s body.

Screenshot 2016-05-08 17.00.10

San reads the police report that ruled her death a suicide. That night everyone had been drinking and playing games. He mentions that the card with number 5 was found next to the body, however when the mission was read Soo Yeon wasn’t in the room. He wondered why the police deemed it a suicide, and Goo Hyung mentions that since one of the witnesses said she was depressed they ruled it that way. No one told the police about the game at the time because since they were drinking in the school building they were all in trouble anyways. San questions why not just ask the person who drew #3 in the game and he assures him that the person who drew #3 didn’t commit the murder since he pulled it.

Jae Wook mentioned that if it wasn’t a suicide then there was only one person who could have killed her. Mi Ra agrees and said that even Ji Hyun agreed back in the day that Goo hyung must have done it since he dropped out of school right after it happened. Ji Hyun tells him that back then they were scared and young and their opinion should change. Mi Ra mentions how Ji Hyun and Mi Sook were jealous of Soo Yeon’s beauty and she spoke with her the most. How ever Ji Hyun reminds her that she was jealous of Soo Yeon’s marks.

San mentions that they all think that Goo Hyung killed Soo Yeon however he doesn’t believe that this is the case. So he wants them all to go step by step through their day that day.

The first mission was that Mi Ra and Mi Sook had to go get something from the supply closet that was outside. The discussed amongst themselves about the rumour of Soo Yeon and the teacher being in a romantic relationship. The rumour says that she was pursuing him even after he had rejected her feeling. They assumed that she and the teacher had sex in the nurse’s office and Mi Sook called her a wench. She also adds that as long as she didn’t take Goo Hyung away from her then she was fine, however lately Goo Hyung has changed how he looks at her and she was worried. Mi Ra mentions that Soo Yeon was the time of the person who flirted with everyone.

The next mission was for Goo Hyung and Soo Yeon to the nurse’s office to get the red medicine. While there Soo Yeon asks if he had heard the rumours which he denies badly and she calls him out on it. He tells her that once he trusts someone he trust them for life, and she feels really happy that Goo Hyung trusts her. She mentions that people have said that she’s done it, but she hasn’t because she has someone she likes. She stresses that it’s someone other than the teacher that she likes.

Screenshot 2016-05-08 17.23.41

Everyone is shocked that Soo Yeon had someone else she liked, and they didn’t know who. Mi Ra remembers the time they returned because she was out taking her medication at that time. She was certain she heard Goo Hyung call for Soo Yeon just moments after they returned. San seems to understand what happened that night.

Ji Hyun admits to making up the rumour of Soo Yeon and the teacher being together because she was jealous of her beauty, so she just made everyone hate her.

Goo Hyung tells San that he knew who Soo Yeon liked, himself. Back then Soo Yeon was picked on a lot and it became a habit to take care of her. When he found out that she liked him, even though he liked her he held his tongue because he didn’t want other people making fun of her because of it. San tells Goo Hyung that he should forgive himself because he is certain that’s what Soo Yeon would want.

San returns to the building and asks Gyeo Wool if she has found anything about the group and she says she hasn’t found anything. She asks if it even helps to do that and he says that it does and it helps them understand what they are thinking. Gyeo Wool admits that she didn’t expect Goo Hyung to have such a painful past.

San inquires where everyone was during the break from the game. Mi Ra and Ji Hyun stayed in the classroom, Mi Sook went to get some water, Goo Hyung went to the bathroom and Jae Wook went to have a smoke. They go to the roof to see where Soo Yeon was during the break, and as per the cop’s report, this is where she would have been before throwing herself off the roof.

There left only one thing left, the #5 card was awfully suspicious. San concludes that everyone received the #3 card except for Mi Ra. They were already drunk and it wasn’t hard to trick them. She pretended to pull a mission from the box but actually had it tucked away in her hand. San congratulates her on her excellent acting skills. Mi Ra tells him that it’s great speculation but she didn’t kill Soo Yeon. San tells her that she was a good actress not that she killed Soo Yeon. The culprit needed help so they made sure that everyone got drunk, and when they were Mi Ra was to send Soo Yeon to the roof. Mi Ra is trying to make San look crazy when the teacher stopped her and told her she did enough.

The teacher admits that he premeditated everything and killed Soo Yeon. Goo Hyung punches him multiple times while asking him why. Everyone realises that they were just part of his trick. Ji Hyun knows why he killed her after she had started the rumour of Soo Yeon and the teacher, Soo Yeon had bought her to see the Teacher and Mi Ra having relations. She screams and ran away so the teacher only ever saw Soo Yeon. Gyeo Wool tells him that he has an excellent resume and wondered why he would hide away at this school. He admits that See Yeon wouldn’t tell him who she was with so he devised the plan to make sure that the other person would keep quiet. He couldn’t be disciplined for the same thing again.

They left the next morning and though the statute of limitations was up Ji Hyun was going to run the story and make sure he paid for the hell he put them through. Goo Hyung tells San that Ji Hyun had made the request but she planned the game, cards and asked him to make the mission. Revisiting this hurt him but he looks back and remembers Soo Yeon’s smiling face.

Screenshot 2016-05-08 17.49.59

Once San gets home, he gets a text message from Yo Na to meet her at the bar at 11 PM that Saturday.

Will he go? I’m sure he will but I can’t wait till tomorrow episode.

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

Standard

Vampire-Detective_780x436_

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 3 Recap

Standard
Vampire-Detective_780x436_

And I’m back with the 3rd episode in time for the 4th episode coming out tomorrow on Viki and Tuesday on Dramafever.

Quick recap from the previous episode: San (Lee Joon) gets inject with a blood serum that heals him no matter what, and turns him into a vampire but not really a vampire. San, Gyeo Wool (Lee Se-young) and Goo Hyung (Oh Jung-se) are hired to protect the news caster Seo Seung-Hee (Choi Song-hyun). While figuring out that case San finds more information out about the vampire bar and their food supply. The more that San looks into the case there are more links there are to Yoo Jin (Kim Yoon-hye) being part of the vampire organisation.

At the beginning of the show, San goes to see Jeong Ji Woong in prison to question him about the woman that she says in the video. Ji Woong warns San to stay away from her and that she is pure evil. Though the organisation that Ji Wong was working for provides him with a lawyer and he warns the lawyer that someone is going to have to take care of San.

San gets called by an old cop buddy,Choi Seon Yeong, to help decipher her father’s will. She is the daughter of Choi Tae Sik, the leader of the black  dragon’s gang. They show up at the funeral, and after a small altercation at the gate with a few gangster members, they are shown inside to see the will.

Inside you get to meet Seon Yeong’s two brothers, Chul Woo (Park Doo Shik) and Chul Yong (Park Hyo Jun), who are a little leary about having an outsider looking into their father’s life. Attorney Kang shows the will to the trio which is simply a drawing of 4 dragons. Tae Sik had an affinity of drawing a dragon at the time of birth of each of his children, yet there were only 3 children and 4 dragons in this picture.

They believe that the picture is a clue to the safe’s combination. Gyeo Wool tries to crack the safe but she very quickly finds out that the safe is bobby trapped. Normally they would have 10 tries to cracking the safe, but the children had tried and failed 7 times prior to calling them.

After taking their leave San and Seon Yeong talk outside and San inquired why Seon Yeong distanced herself from her father. She tells him it’s because once she found out that he was a gangster she couldn’t accept talking with him anymore, and it solidified her decision to become a police officer. While talking with Seon Yeong, San’s mind turns her into Yoo Jin after she told him that she felt sorry every time that she saw him.

They track down where Tae Sik was raised and it was in chinatown where he worked in a restaurant called the black dragon. They go to the restaurant but the owner is not happy that they are poking around, nor is the kitchen staff. The chef made a call and to get some people to try and steal the will from San. Of course, San gets hit across the back with a 2×4 while the 2 guys were driving by on a motorcycle. Though San is just defending himself he gets arrested but Detective Park (Ahn Se ha)gets him off the hook.

The all went out to eat and they discussed the attack and how the attacker had a word tattooed on his wrist which they initially thought that it was a prison tattoo. Detective Park tells them that illegal immigrants get the tattoos while they are crossing into Korea. San goes back to the restaurant with this piece of information and confronted the chef who has the same tattoo.

The owner of the restaurant tells San about Tae Sik talent with his hands and how he had started making fake ids and passport for people. Most of the illegal immigrants in Chinatown owned them being there to Tae Sik’s forgeries so they hold him in high regards.

San decided that there wasn’t anything else to find out about his past so he decided to start looking into the people who would be inheriting the money. They go back to talk with everyone. Gyeo Wool talks with Chul Woo who keeps trying to use his moves on her, Goo Hyung takes care of talking with Chul Yong while San talks with both Attorney Kang and Seon Yeong. While talking with Seon Yeong, she divulges to San about her father’s mistress and that was the real reason that she cut off all communications with her father. He brothers don’t believe that a woman like that existed in their father’s life.

When San goes back to the restaurant to look at the dragon painting there again he starts thinking about a new idea. However the lights go out and another vampire appears, they fight and San is knocked out (I’m seeing a recurring theme) and the vampire steals the will and brings it to the mysterious woman. Once they open it, though, they find out that San has switched the will out for a business card.

They reconvene at Tae Sik’s house and San reveals that Attorney Kang is Tae Sik eldest son. His original name was Choi Cheol Ho and he was born long before Tae Sik was a criminal. His criminal past started when Cheol Ho killed a man to protect his father from being beaten to death. before Tae Sik left him to go to prison, he gave him a new passport with a new identity, and Cheol Ho no longer existed.

At first, nobody believes him but he used the month that the 4 children were born in reverse order to open the safe and handed them the will. The will left everything to Seon Yeong so that she could disband the group and get rid of his business. However when she is going through the safe she finds pictures of Yoo Jin and  Tae Woo. She mentions that she believes that her father still made forgeries for his VIP clients due to his talent. We are left at the end of the rama with San’s shocked face.

I’m still really enjoying this drama. I’m really wondering though when San is going to find out that he is a vampire, and when we’re going to see Yoo Jin for the first time as a vampire. I’m looking forward to next week’s episode.

Ok! Back for the second episode, the 3rd post that will bring us up-to-date with the drama will be coming out on Sunday. So just a quick recap of the last episode : San should be dead from a gunshot wound to the chest, however, Han Gyo Min injected him with the blood serum that he invented for his girlfriend and it healed San.

San (Lee Joon) walks away from the gunshot and is completely fine, even his doctor agrees. He noticed that the scar that he had from the 1st gunshot from Jung Yoo Jin (Kim Yoon Hye) is gone.

Han Gyeo Wool (Lee Se Young) barges into the office and states that she is moving in with them until they can uncover what happened to her brother. Which of course interests San, because of the woman in the picture that wears the same necklace as Yoo Jin.

Seo Seung Hee (Choi Song Hyun), a famous broadcaster, comes to the office to hire San and Goo Hyung (Oh Jung Se) to protect her through to the next broadcast. She found the corpse of her junior broadcaster, Park Bo Eun (I couldn’t find the actresses name),  in a locker in the changing room. However the corpse was gone when she returned with someone else, though in its place laid a letter threatening her to return something in 24 hours, and if she doesn’t she’ll be killed. There is only one problem, she doesn’t know what the person threatening her wants back.

San and Goo Hyung go and investigate the area where the corpse was last seen. Enter San’s new ability that he received from the blood serum that is now coursing through his veins. After seeing the little bit of blood that was left in the locker by the corpse, San’s eyes turned gold and he began to see a few moments of the past while the corpse was in the locker.

Of course, there is the mandatory scene where a bad guy is watching them in the room. San notices him and chases after him. However, there was more than one and San get’s knocked out by someone smashing a 2×4 across his head. While San was knocked out, he reminisces about the time the time that He and Yoo Jin stargazed together. Though when he came too, there was a lovely note reminding them of the time remaining.

Though Goo Hyung is a little apprehensive, they take the case. Goo Hyung makes a deal with Gyeo Wool, that if she can track down all of the information on Bo Eun she can move into the spare room. So obviously, she accepts the offer and begins to hack into Bo Eun’s background.

Meanwhile, San is shadowing Seung Hee at work and started talking with a radio staffer (Park Jin Joo) and he finds out that Seung Hee and Bo Eun didn’t have the best relationship. The staffer also advised him that there were rumours circulating about how Seung Hee slept her way to the top and that she was sleeping with her cameraman Kim Kyung Soo (Kim Young Jae)  before his death and her marriage to a Chaebol’s son. San also managed to see the last

Gyeo Wool found a link between Bo Eun and a Loan Shark who lent her some money to pay off her father’s debt, so they go and see Hi Mang Hi who was the person who lent Bo Eun the money. After a little discussion, they find out that Mang Hi was the one who was leaving the notes and potentially killed Bo Eun. He did, however, give up the name of his boss to save his skin.

Jeong Ji Woong is seen as a very good man who gives back to the society, however, he was under investigation by Seung Hee and Kyung Soo in the case of homeless people going missing. However right before the report was supposed to be filmed Hyeong Soo committed suicide but overdosing on medication.

They start looking into Kyung Soo’s last days to find a clue of what Ji Woong was looking for. They visit Kyung Soo’s sister so that they could look through his room, however, they didn’t find anything about the potential tape that Ji Woong wants back. However, they did find proof that Seung Hee and Kyung Soo were in a loving relationship, which Seung Hee later confirms.

While talking with Detective Park, San and Goo Hyung find out about the fake ambulances that are picking up the homeless, with the promise of taking them to the hospital, but they’ve never seen again. So San hatches a plan, and he pretends to be drunk and passed out to be picked up by one such ambulance.

They succeed and San is picked up and brought to the facility where the homeless are drained of their blood for the vampire bar’s blood supply. When San catches sight of all of the blood his powers turn on and he struggles to keep himself in control. He staggers through the facility and he finds Bo Eun dead in a body bag.

When San steps out of the facility, we find out about his increased strength. The best way to describe it is an epic fight scene with like 20-30 people against San, and thanks to San’s powers he beats them all. However when Goo Hyung shows up to stop San something clicks and his eyes turn back to normal, but he collapses since he was stabbed and sliced about 10-15 times. Thanks to his new blood he doesn’t die and it makes him even more confused about what happened to him.

San goes back to Kyung Soo’s house and found taps that were hidden and he gives them to Seung Hee and plays her his last video message for her. He tells her to keep broadcasting and that he loves her which makes her break down in tears. You find out in this scene as well that Seung Hee and Kyung Soo had known each other since they were young and you could tell that Seung Hee loved Kyung Soo much more than her husband.

At the end of the episode, San is reviewing the tapes one more time and he catches a glance of the woman again. The plot thickens.

I’m really enjoying this show, I found myself forgetting to write notes throughout the show. Lee Joon makes a very handsome leading man, and I’m a fan.

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)

Vampire-Detective_780x436_.jpg

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
