And we’re on for the final week and the last two episodes now that episode 18 has aired! I can’t believe this drama will be ending a week from now and we’ll have no more Cruel City, and our resident baddie Park Sa to look forward to! Maybe it’s time we also went out in search for that drug factory just to get us off this addiction and on to something else, lol!
Shit finally hits the fan as Soo Min comes to the realization about who Shi Hyun really is. Moreover, Busan is now laid out like a prize waiting for the internal crown wars to be over to see who will be the victor-Safari or Park Sa. It’s a dangerous fight for both of them, but even more so for Park Sa because the path to bringing down Chairman Jo, and subsequently Busan is getting harder and harder for him.
P.S. Forgive the bad aspect ratio of images and all. I’ve reinstalled everything on my system, hoping to make it work better and although everything else is perfect, it won’t give me the option to adjust my screen resolution so everything is wrong! 😦
Another week and here we are with Episode 11 which gives us so much more to think and mull over. And I hate to say this, but I’m still conflicted over Hong Ki’s character-who is he and what is his agenda? Having him be Busan, or on Busan’s side is making things too easy and if there’s anything this drama has taught us, it’s that there’s nothing easy or as it appears in this world. I have a nagging suspicion about Hong Ki, which puts him in the category of somewhat good guys in my perspective, but then again, a guy who is using the wrong means to achieve something right, is that really a good guy? Ahhh, so many questions!
Another stellar episode where we finally get more of the back story on our favorite bromance couple-Park Sa and Soo! It’s so consistent with what we’ve seen of Soo so far and despite being everything one would have already expected, it’s got its own fresh charm that makes it all the more appealing and light hearted! And since we also get some of the rumored ‘steamy’ moments between out OTP, who could ever be complaining about anything!
I love the way this show is taking the slow route in revealing everything to us bit by bit. It’s a great way to keep us sated, and yet curious for more! Today we get more of Park Sa’s past and the plot moves a step forward in upping the game throughout the episode. The real moment where stakes fly, and totally unexpectedly is at the very end when two enemies who shouldn’t really be enemies-Park Sa and Hyung Min, almost come face to face! Enough suspense? Move onto the recap and sate your curiosity!
And I thought Episode 3 was intense and had revelations-whoa, this is taking things to a whole new arena and putting even more people into the power play! Finally we have the true answer to who Park Sa is, and it is one you would have least expected! It makes you both hopeful, and fearful for him and his future!
Whoa! This story just hit the roof and in such an exciting way! I knew Park Sa and Kyung Mi would know each other from before, but damn if watching it wasn’t a surprise! Park Sa’s face-there’s such an interplay of emotions that for a moment, you simply forget that man is the fearsome Park Sa who just beat up a woman and so many men without breaking a sweat! Needless to say, this drama is bringing out surprises one after the other! And finally, Park Sa and Soo Min come face to face and it brings a slight smile to our baddie’s face-for the slightest moment! *squealing in glee over what’s to come*
This episode takes things up another notch and raises the stakes by changing the game completely. What was a victory takes a downturn and a major setback, but our resident baddie Park Sa isn’t one to be deterred or taken down by such an attack. Gotta love the confidence on this guy! Moreover, we get to see more of him and understand his ambition just a bit more. In just one scene, you see the man both being loyal and cruel. And Hyung Min is another puzzle for whom many pieces start falling in place one by one so that even if you do not agree to his ideology, do not want to accept it, you can see the logic and the mind behind it and hence cannot bring yourself to totally hate or ostracize him for it. Except, it makes him one step closer to the point of losing control and turning down the wrong road. And for a man who stands for justice, this is a dangerous bet. Can’t wait to see what Heartless City unravels hereon!
