Newly appointed Murayama fires Kang To and Shunji feels much better after chasing Kang To out of the station.
Koiso tells Shunji that the person who killed Kang To’s mother was his brother Kenji! Shocked, Kenji searches for Kang To but he seemed to have vanished since being chased out from the station… Shunji starts thinking that Kang To might just be the Gaksital who killed his brother.
Governor Wada receives a request for cooperation from the Kwantung Army and to prevent the number of forces from slipping at the next meeting with the police force, he secretly arranges for comfort women to be gathered
Kang To is charming Rie under Kachiyama’s watch while Taro tells Ueno that Kang To is the guy who might be Gaksital. Rie is present during this exchange. Shunji conveys the same to Rie-that a new truth has been revealed which means that Kang To could be Gaksital. Rie: “A new truth?”
Rie is at a restaurant and drugs Kang To’s drink. As he drinks, Kang To tells her, “Even now, I will save you again.” Drama, I would so love it if you make Kang To’s words come true- that he would save her again from Ueno and from herself! A crying Rie whispers, “That obvious lie, why do I want to believe it so much?” He passes out and she sees his arm wound, drawing back in stunned realization.
The circus folk meet two new people who show them an article about going to China-to a better future.
Kang To is driving Shunji somewhere and thinks to himself, “Shunji, did you even find out that your hyung killed my mom? Fine, let’s see this through.”
In the woods, Shunji meets with Mok Dan and hugs her in front of Kang To. His words are seemingly for Mok Dan, but he’s looking at Kang To and means them for him. “Is there anything you are hiding from me? If there is anything, I will find out what it is.” Kang To and Mok Dan silently hold hands.
Enjoy the preview folks, just a few hours to the episode! 😉
Kang To’s world crashed down in the last episode and although he gets his revenge, it still leaves him in the middle of nowhere since he’s lost the one source of comfort and joy he had. He fights his own inner demons while the world tries to make sense of Gaksital and wonder if he is alive or not. Kang To gets a little glimpse of Gaksital-who, what, why and how, but cannot find the answers that satisfy him just yet. It’s the beginning of a new journey, plagued by guilt and remorse and he faces the fact that he is now truly left alone. Every episode gets better and better for Gaksital and you are left bleeding your heart out for more!
Episode 7 Recap:
Kang To sits by his brother’s grave after the funeral, staring at the mask. Crying, he turns to his brother’s grave and remembers the time his brother had saved him and the moment when he had shot him. It’s heartbreaking as he cries-how could hyung let his own brother kill him? He should have said something, should have done something. “How am I going to live now? How CAN I live now?” Turning back to the mask with hatred in his eyes, Kang To addresses hyung, “What is this? Was it that important? More than our family? Who appreciates it? Who appreciates it if HYUNG did THAT?” Baek Gun stands at a distance, tearing up at Kang To’s sorrow.
