Adamas: Episodes 11-12 | Korean drama recaps and information

Adamas: Episodes 11-12

It’s one other wild week for Adamas with big bulletins, betrayals, and long-hid truths revealed. The principles of the sport have completely modified and our characters’ playing cards are out within the open — however in some way it’s much more tense and tougher to belief folks than ever earlier than.


Adamas: Episodes 11-12

There’s far an excessive amount of to cowl this week (and to swoon over) so I’ll skip the preamble and get us proper again to the Haesong eightieth anniversary celebration. It doesn’t go as deliberate. For anybody.

Our good-looking Woo-shin has one in every of a number of charged encounters with Hye-soo this week, however quickly he’s off on his mission. Because of an extremely lame “distraction” courtesy of Dong-rim, and a few cautious pre-planning across the safety system with Tae-sung, Woo-shin sneaks away from the celebration to steal the adamas for a second time. However OMG, it’s like an immediate replay. The case is empty, and Woo-shin is so crestfallen it might be unhappy if it wasn’t so threatening: there’s a newspaper within the case from the day Lee Chang-woo was taken in for the homicide. Somebody is aware of his recreation…

Woo-shin heads again to the celebration (barely making it outta there, however with Hye-soo serving to) and he sees a well-known face. It’s Soo-hyun, who arrives flinging his invite round and marching proper as much as Chairman Kwon in his totally-not-black-tie outfit.

However Dragon Woman Kwon’s shock occasion is about to begin. And no, it’s not a piñata stuffed with rose petals for her beloved chairman. She takes the stage and opens the notorious suitcase we all know holds the adamas. Then she takes it out and wields it over her head like an Amazonian warrior, finally pointing it at Chairman Kwon himself. She accuses him of all of the murderous and horrible issues he’s achieved over the a long time, and broadcasts that the adamas is a homicide weapon. “I’ll expose your true demonic face!” she screams.

WOW. I knew Woo-shin bought to her, however I didn’t assume it was going to escalate fairly this dramatically. Necessary to notice that Chairman Kwon barely blinks a watch within the face of this very public string of accusations. He merely says that the police needs to be alerted that they discovered the thief that was after the adamas.

Whereas all this is happening, Search engine marketing-hee is enduring what turns into an over three-hour ordeal with a bomb strapped to her and an EOD crew working painstakingly to dismantle it round her. All of the whereas her hand has been duct-taped — because of Hyuk-pil — to the detonator to forestall her finger from shifting out of fatigue… and in addition to assist show that she’s not a suicide bomber however a sufferer.

Like so many Adamas plot traces, this bomb story arc has a half dozen permutations — all implausible – and finally the crew realizes that Search engine marketing-hee is holding a distant management, not a detonator, and that the goal isn’t the SIH, however a populated market the place the slimy Candidate Hwang is presently campaigning.

Adamas: Episodes 11-12

We solely get to take pleasure in a quick dialog with our twins in the identical forest scene earlier than Soo-hyun heads off to avoid wasting the day, Search engine marketing-hee, and the SIH. And likewise Candidate Hwang, whom he actually does save by stopping him from evacuating the risk zone into his Okay-pop van (which is the place the bomb is definitely secreted).

Whereas Soo-hyun is busy with that, Woo-shin has additionally left the mansion (or, has been allowed to go away), and he follows the adamas to the police station the place he comes head to head with Crew Chief Lee who appears to be ready for him. It’s tense as heck, and whereas Lee pins our boy to the wall, he smashes the “diamond” towards it, thus telling Woo-shin — no phrases wanted — that it’s been a pretend all alongside. He then tells Woo-shin the one motive he’s been allowed to reside is to find the actual one.

Woo-shin is perhaps dropping exhausting, however he hits the fireplace alarm in an epic hero second; Lee slams him towards the desk, unconscious, earlier than escaping. When he wakes up, Woo-shin’s shock is palpable.

However that is Adamas, and we’ve a bunch of different reveals to go earlier than the top of the episodes! The subsequent one is that Chairman Kwon knew the adamas was pretend all alongside (remind me by no means to be a jeweler) — and wow, he actually performed the lengthy recreation. He saved Lee Chang-woo alive and in jail for thus a few years, and primarily labored up this complete plot — all the things we’ve seen unfold so far — in an effort to get the Tune boys to seek out the actual adamas.

I like this as a reveal, nevertheless it’s under no circumstances surprising, for the reason that Evil Chairman trope is each screenwriter’s favourite. However there’s nonetheless quite a lot of room for extra entanglements, so we’ll see the place issues go from right here. Not that I feel he’s not evil.

The bomb scenario is handled, however the SIH has an enormous mess on their arms because it’s been made to seem like an inside job. However extra essential is that this Search engine marketing-hee/Soo-hyun relationship! Whereas she was kidnapped, Soo-hyun was distressed to the purpose of choking up, and it may not have been the purpose of the scene, however when Search engine marketing-hee later wakes up within the hospital with Soo-hyun hanging over her, I used to be swooning exhausting. What a fierce duo! I really like them.

Chairman Kwon has efficiently suppressed all of the news-worthy occasions that occurred throughout the celebration, however when he summons Solar to the mansion and he or she spills the beans on the entire suicide bomber fiasco, Chairman Kwon is livid. I actually don’t understand how he offers with having Hyun-jo as a son.

Adamas: Episodes 11-12

However Solar was on the mansion for an additional motive. We discover out that she bought a mission from the chairman himself, and when Crew Chief Lee inquires what it was — properly — it was him. And as he chokes on the wine Solar poisoned, he realizes it a fraction of a second too late. I’m not significantly sorry to see him go, nevertheless it’s quite brutal to look at how all these baddies activate one another so quick.

Talking of turning, Hye-soo is everywhere in the map of late, and appears extra dedicated than ever to exposing the chairman’s crimes. However first she will get the shock of her life — so many shocks this week — when Hyun-jo lastly and tauntingly admits that he was the one which killed Min-jo.

And certain sufficient we see a flashback of a stricken Chairman Kwon grieving over his beloved youngest, whereas concurrently commending his oldest on eliminating his enemy. We additionally later study that he “punished” Hyun-jo himself by maintaining Hye-soo round to torment him. Effectively, if it wasn’t clear earlier than, these folks have misplaced all humanity.

Adamas: Episodes 11-12

Effectively, that was the top of what Hye-soo may take, it appears, and he or she first talks to Dragon Woman Kwon on the precinct and tells her that she’s going to do what she couldn’t: see to it that the chairman and Haesong are destroyed. Then, later, we see this in motion when Hye-soo approaches the chairman and requests that he fulfills the “reward” as soon as promised to her father (i.e., the loss of life of whomever she needs). In yet one more thrilling reveal, it’s Hyun-jo’s title on the slip of paper, however the father refuses. The 2 strike a brand new deal.

After which, lastly, it’s Soo-hyun’s flip for his surprising reveal — everybody has had not less than one this week — and he shares an essential dialog along with his brother. Woo-shin is sitting staring on the big motion determine (come on, guys!) and slowly however clearly tells Soo-hyun that their actual father is Lee Chang-woo.

Adamas: Episodes 11-12

This drama is loopy, proper? Although this week principally delivered reveals of information we already knew to characters that didn’t, it’s nonetheless electrifying to see all of it come collectively. The stellar appearing doesn’t harm both.

With two extra weeks to go, it seems like all the things is tightening. A lot of the sport is out within the open now, and we get to stay up for our twins’ subsequent challenges: for Woo-shin, it’s discovering out the place the actual adamas is hidden (and coping with Hye-soo whom he can or can not belief); for Soo-hyun, it’s defending Lee Chang-woo as his legal professional (as a result of he unceremoniously stop his job to take action).

I really like just about all the things about this drama (properly, besides how the story has dealt with Solar), however I feel one in every of my favourite issues is that because the story unravels, a lot of the bottom we stood on has disappeared. In the long run, if our guesses are proper, the boys have had the adamas inside their grasp for the final 22 years, and that packs a wonderful, gut-wrenching punch.
