Adamas: Episodes 7-8

The deeper our twins dig into the homicide case, the extra mysteries are revealed, and it’s a race towards the clock because the baddies attempt to eliminate any proof that can be utilized towards them. Are our heroes gonna make it? I’m not even positive.


Adamas: Episodes 7-8

We had a barely scary brush with makjang this week, however I’m completely happy to report that the drama was in a position to maintain itself slick and arranged regardless of some furry and harrowing plot reveals. Was I flawed to doubt?

For all of the motion this week, not a whole lot of progress was made on the investigation or adamas-pinching itself… however on the flipside have been all these reveals, motivations, and uh, some actually terrifying new characters. And automobile bombs. Prepare, people!

Very similar to final week we’re seeing just a little extra fairness now between our brothers and their storylines, and although we lower backwards and forwards extra often, their plots (and them!) stay separated. Hopefully not eternally, when you catch my drift.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

Woo-shin squeezes his approach out of a sticky scenario with the opposite maid who’s tailing and trailing: MS. OH (Woo Hyun-joo), and with the assistance of wads and wads of money, is ready to get some data and help out of her. In fact, he doesn’t belief her way more than he trusts anybody, however nonetheless, data is data.

Now that he is aware of the adamas is out of the home – and he’s imprisoned in it — Woo-shin’s plan is to pit Dragon Girl Kwon towards her beloved chairman. With some data from Ms. Oh (about Ms. Kwon’s deceased son and the chairman’s former coronary heart transplant), and his author’s mind arduous at work (this requires a whole lot of sitting on the sofa and staring into house which is among the issues I adore about this character), he hatches a plan.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8 Adamas: Episodes 7-8

We be taught with Woo-shin that Dragon Girl Kwon’s younger son dedicated suicide on the very tree that’s outdoors her bed room window, and that her comatose son’s coronary heart was the one which saved Chairman Kwon by way of transplant a few years in the past. The makjang radar is excessive at this level, however as this performs out, it turns into as twisty because it does galling — and stays well-written.

Woo-shin writes a chapter of a narrative that will get proper to Ms. Kwon’s psyche: a robust duke murders his servant’s son after which steals his coronary heart. It units Ms. Kwon off as a lot as Woo-shin anticipated, and the scenes these two share over this are actually masterful, whether or not it’s her hyperventilating and screaming, or Woo-shin’s chess-like thoughts working to search out out the precise reality.

Pitting Dragon Girl Kwon towards the chairman proves more durable than he thought, and it’s a horrific second when he realizes that she additionally suspected the chairman of “suiciding” her son for his coronary heart, however then buried that thought in her blind devotion. Their relationship is palms down essentially the most terrifying factor ever.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

Woo-shin is having equally iffy luck with Hye-soo. Although they’re fairly open with one another now, and Hye-soo appears all-aboard to assist Woo-shin’s anti-Haesong plot, there’s nonetheless the lingering feeling that we don’t know all that we have to about Hye-soo… and that she’s able to greater than we would notice.

She does, nonetheless, inform Woo-shin not solely that Secretary Yoon was the one who introduced him to the home as ghostwriter, however that the explanation was Hye-soo herself. Thus the story of Min-jo is introduced up as soon as once more. As predicted, Hye-soo admits they have been in love. However then she says that she is positive the chairman had him killed, that he solely cared for his eldest son, and worst of all that “angel” Min-jo was volunteering at a jail and bought pulled into the Lee Chang-woo case. Proper earlier than he died. Oh boy.

Nonetheless, with all this info sharing — in regards to the adamas, too — these two should not fully allied. And later, we see by way of flashback that Hye-soo visited the twins’ mom earlier than she died to let her know that Lee Chang-woo wasn’t responsible. This case is critically like a bottomless properly of intrigue!

And now we flip to Soo-hyun and his adventures, which get much more intense than final week. At first he’s hiding with Search engine marketing-hee in Woo-shin’s house, however when a bathroom repairman is available in and units off his suspicions, the entire thing comes crashing down. (Aspect be aware: What a freakin’ nice bunch of scenes this was, with all of its character permutations.)

The reality of the matter is that the SIH was utilizing Soo-hyun and Search engine marketing-hee as bait… as a result of greater than Chairman Kwon, they really need Workforce A, his evil working arm. We already understand how evil they’re, however every week convinces us much more so.

Anyway, Soo-hyun and Search engine marketing-hee wind up confined but once more with the SIH and their secret + shady methods. However nobody can accuse them of not being dedicated to their trigger. They don’t even have identities on paper (aside from the chief); that’s how invisible they must be.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

In the meantime, Workforce A is busy doing their evil deeds. Workforce Chief Lee sees to it that every one the data and proof across the Lee Chang-woo case are stolen from the police and destroyed (guess the police by no means digitized their data in time…). He additionally secures a hair from Lee Chang-woo himself to fulfill his evil hunch, quickly confirming that Lee Chang-woo is the daddy of our courageous and scrumptious twins.

However that’s not sufficient. There’s a brand new murderer introduced into the combination — she’s a sassy and psychotic younger lady that goes by the identify of SUN (Park Hye-eun). That identify additionally simply so occurs to be the identify of Secretary Yoon’s sibling, whose bouquet present leaves her in such horror that she actually runs away.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

I don’t a lot go for the psycho murderer archetype — particularly when they’re ladies in lace tops that may’t appear to sit down or arise straight — however she does the job. She’s terrifying. Her job is to kill Soo-hyun (Workforce Chief Lee’s new vendetta) and she or he goes about it via horrible means.

Whereas Soo-hyun is investigating with “Baek hyung” — one of many SIH operators — they discover the final little bit of proof from the Lee Chang-woo case that Workforce A didn’t get to: his father’s physique. Although the grave marked together with his identify was clearly dug up and handled, the actual physique is buried a couple of graves away. And positive sufficient, we be taught that this was Woo-shin’s doing, and even Soo-hyun has to present him credit score for that one, heh.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

However then, after that small win of retaining what Soo-hyun calls the most effective proof in a homicide case (i.e., the sufferer), catastrophe strikes. Soo-hyun and Mr. Baek are within the automobile about to drag away, when a telephone rings. It’s from the trunk, which they reluctantly open. Inside is Soo-hyun’s candy colleague from the prosecution workplace — tortured and killed by Solar.

Solar simply so occurs to be sitting on a hilltop close by observing the entire scene with glee. After ensuring that Soo-hyun learns her identify (like several true psycho — but in addition in all probability a mandatory plot level, proper?), she detonates a automobile bomb they usually all go up in flames.

Hours later the SIH finds out and the our bodies are recovered. Everyone seems to be D.O.A. besides Soo-hyun, however the docs can’t save him and he’s additionally pronounced lifeless.

Adamas: Episodes 7-8 Adamas: Episodes 7-8

And simply once you wish to copycat Soo-hyun and punch an inanimate object, we get another twist by means of Lee Chang-woo himself. The thriller that Woo-shin can’t piece collectively across the case is why on this planet Workforce A has let Lee Chang-woo reside for the final 22 years; why not simply kill him and eliminate the entire scenario (as is their MO)?

Nicely, our twist tells a distinct story, as a result of Lee Chang-woo has a change flip in his head after listening to Workforce A talked about by the guard who retains an eye fixed on him. In a scary episode-ending second, he tells the guard to inform Workforce Chief Lee that his sunbae desires to see him. MOMMY!

Adamas: Episodes 7-8

With the piles of latest plot developments this week, my head is swimming a bit. And whereas I want the villains have been rather less Villainous, I nonetheless actually love how twisty the entire thing is, and the way well-paced and plotted. Every thread that’s tugged on reveals one other large chunk of the story, and with half the drama nonetheless forward, there’s much more to uncover.

I’ll additionally use the mid-way level as a cause to hope that Soo-hyun isn’t actually lifeless. I imply, I wouldn’t put it previous the present at this level — but it surely simply makes a lot extra sense for the SIH to faux his demise as an alternative. Additionally, I’m simply feeling just a little grasping for extra of the twins.

Oh the plight of a viewer falling extra in love with a drama’s heroes every episode! At first I assumed I cherished Woo-shin extra, together with his reckless wanderings and fearless conduct, however now I kinda love Soo-hyun and his hot-headed scoffs and kicking of automobiles. Okay, I like them each. I’m wanting ahead to the time when this drama brings them collectively once more in actual time. That’s gonna occur, proper?
