Equator Man Episode 7 Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)! Again, there’s no screencaps! Sorry!! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

Episode 7 Recap:

When Jang Il opens the door, he sees Ji Won playing for Sun Woo and his smile fades so he approaches them both. Sun Woo has a smile on his face listening to the song while Ji Won isn’t too happy to see Jang Il. Placing the flowers by her side, Jang Il sits down. When Ji Won is done, Sun Woo claps and asks her out to coffee. She agrees. Slightly, Sun Woo looks in Jang Il’s direction which surprises the latter. Sun Woo tells Ji Won he’ll leave first and heads out. Jang Il asks Ji Won if Sun Woo is the guy she mentioned. She agrees and rejects his offer for coffee. He asks why she likes Sun Woo more than him but she starts to head out. He grabs her back and tries to kiss her but she shoves him away and heads out. Alone, Jang Il stands in the room until Sun Woo returns asking out if Ji Won is still there. Jang Il doesn’t reply but watches as he heads to look for his recorder. Jang Il picks it up and gives it to him. Sun Woo, saying thanks heads out. Since there are no words exchanged, Sun Woo doesn’t know its Jang Il.

Equator Man Episode VI Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

The story moves little ahead but we do get to see a little more into Sun Woo’s mind as we all watch his manipulation of the scenarios. He wants to find out the truth and is using his condition as an excuse to do just that. Jang Il is already way past his guilt over the terrible deed he did and he’s pretty much shown he’ll take the same road ahead too if he needed to. Sumi is as crazy and as obsessed with Jang Il as ever and I guess its safe to say that when her loyalties between Sun Woo and Jang Il ever do come to test, she’ll be making a crazy decision. Seriously, the girl was dumped eons ago and she’s still hung up about it. Then there’s Ji Won. I am not liking her character yet either. She should be more clear about her intentions and her feelings for Jang Il rather than to have him hang onto her. When he directly said it in this episode, she should have made herself clear, there and then! Well, hope she redeems herself here on! Alrighty, on to the recap!

Episode VI Recap:

Ji Won recognizes Sun Woo but he can’t see her and she apologizes, saying she must have made a mistake and asks if there’s anything she can help him with. He wants to meet up with a friend and she offers to take him there, guiding him. As soon as they’re about to head inside, his friend runs up to him. Sun Woo thanks Ji Won for her help and it makes Ji Won remember the same scene where Sun Woo had thanked her as kids. She watches him leave. She learns his back-story from a colleague, that he is an orphan and from Busan.

Equator Man Episode IV Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  Again, I’m attaching screen caps at the end! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

The story moves forward into another era now, the adults! It’s surprising to see the different sides of some characters-actually, just one character- Chairman Jin. The way he treats his daughter, who I’m suspecting isn’t his real child either was quite surprising and his wish for feeling like family felt heartfelt as well. However, we still see the evil in him more often than not and which is about to be amplified now that Tae Joo is coming back to Korea. Then there’s Sumi. The girl is still hung up on Jang Il and it’s hard to see where she’s being honest and where she’s being manipulative. Ji Won is still in the shade. There’s not much further work on her character and she almost got like less than 5 minutes in this episode. (Don’t tell me it’s really less than 5 minutes! I can’t recall her being anywhere except the drunk and then the library scene!)

Equator Man Episode III Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  Again, I’m attaching screen caps at the end! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

I feel so sorry for Jang Il and I can’t help but hate him too. His circumstances are making him take all the wrong decisions and steps and his greed is making him blind. He’s lost faith in his father, snubbed a girl because of her poor background and ended up with the death of his best and only friend with his own hands (Yeah, Sun Woo doesnt die but for now, he’s assumed dead) But more than him, I hate Chairman Jin. He’s the scariest of the bunch just because he’s cruel and unfeeling to the bone. He’s killed a man over a supposed ‘treachery’ and he doesn’t have the slightest bit of remorse or regret! I’d loathe to see him go ‘all out’! 😐

This drama is too dark for my taste folks and I hate all the evilness going around!! <_<

Equator Man Episode II Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  I also did not understand the episode 100% so there’s many things I am hazy about. Still, I hope to give you an idea about what is happening. Also, putting the screen caps in the middle of the post takes me a long time so I’m simply attaching it at the end as a gallery. Sorry for the delay in recapping! All in all, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

Realization and dread sinks in as Sun Woo watches his father hanging from a tree, lifeless. He hangs onto his father, calling him and trying to bring him to life. When Jang Il points out his father seems to be dead, Sun Woo shouts back at him, “He’s not dead. My father’s not dead. He’s alive.” Finally, the branch breaks and his body falls down while Sun Woo desperately tries to get him to wake up and tries to carry his father before finally collapsing and crying, slowly accepting the reality.

Equator Man Episode I Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  I also did not understand the episode 100% so there’s many things I am hazy about. Still, I hope to give you an idea about what is happening. Also, putting the screen caps in the middle of the post takes me a long time n I have to move to other work now, so I’m simply attaching it at the end as a gallery. Sorry! All in all, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

At the start of the series we’ve got both our leads wandering around aimlessly but with dark expressions. Sun woo is driving around in a car while Jang Il is simply walking around until he finally arrives at an apartment and buys a gun. Finally he heads over to a posh house, where a man is sitting out on the terrace, enjoying the view. The man doesn’t bat an eyelash when he hears Jang Il approaching and stares ahead while talking to him, commenting on the scenic location and how he likes it here, leading Jang Il to ask if he’s envious.
