Jung Tae is accosted by a bunch of men with bats. He says, remember his name, because it will be one they can’t forget.
Comments: As much as I love Gaya, I felt really sorry for Ok Ryeon this episode! She keeps getting blown off by Jung Tae, always waiting for him to come back to her. Soo-Ok is his slick self, trying to seduce Ok Ryeon away from Jung Tae. Aoki also seems like an interesting character. I think he is the son of the Japanese elder according Dramawiki character names. He also seems to have a good relationship with Gaya, which seems sweet since they went through the hardship together. However, I don’t think Gaya knows her relationship with elder, which would make her and Aoki related…? As for Jung Tae, he keeps on getting misunderstood this episode, things are just not turning out well for him! The thing I really love about this drama is that it consistently delivers amazing fighting choreo. From his fight with Il-Hwa to little skirmishes between gang members, always awesome.
