  1. RECAP, EPISODE 99 Officer Moo and her Daughter arrive home. Her Daughter shows Officer Moo's Mother the gumball machine ring :Mr. Tall" bought for her. Officer Moo's Mother scolds her Brother and Sister In Law for their Public Display of Affection, where "all of the neighbors could see." Did I mention that it was public? In his bedroom, Drunken Chaebol sis in his expensive massage chair and looks rueful and unfulfilled. Drunken Chaebol's Sister has a fever. Officer Moo's Brother a[[lies some cold towels to her forehead. Officer Moo's Mother complains about Officer Cha leaving the Substation without eating the lunch she brought. Her Mother learns about Officer Cha's impending transfer to headquarters. Officer Moo opines that a woman needs to shed tears over a man like a fish needs to shed tears over a bicycle. Or something like that. When Officer Cha's Sister and Husband arrive home, Officer Cha is speaking with the Caretaker in the Courtyard. When the Sister overhears her Brother calling the Caretaker "Mother," she is disturbed. In their bedroom, the Sister complains, "What if my real Mother overheard that> Her husband reminds her that the Caretaker has been more of a real mother to the Stepmother, who split after giving birth to him. The Sister is concerned that the Steomother may soon go Abroad and never Return. Her Husband doesn't much share this concern. In his bedroom, Officer Cha looks at a mugshot of the Suspected Murderer. He remembers his confrontation with Officer Moo after the Suspected Murderer overpowered her and ran away. His Korean Hard Guy pose seems to be cracking. Officer Moo's Brother and the Caretaker's son work in their office. They start to leave for lunch when both of their Mothers walk in. The two Sons leave for lunch and the two Mothers sit down for a Talk. The Caretaker thinks it would be great if Officers Cha and Moo reunited. Officer Moo's Mother is like, Let's talk about something else. They argue over whether Officer Cha is a fake Korean Hard Guy or a real Korean Hard Guy. At the Chicken Restaurant, the Caretaker and Officer Cha's Sister talk. The Caretaker tells her that her son could learn cooking from Drunken Chaebol's Sister. Officer Cha's Sister, as is her wont, asks "How much would that cost," and is shocked to learn that there would be no cost. As the Caretaker is leaving the Chicken Restaurant, her Husband enters to speak with his Daughter. Before the Caretaker leaves, Officer Cha's Sister apologizes for her past resemblance to a richardsimmons-hole. Officer Cha's Sister tells her Father about how thugs usted up her restaurant on Drunken Chaebol's orders. She is afraid that the Stepmother may be harmed before she can leave Korea. At the Substation, the Chief is posting another comment on Officer Moo's Mother's website. Someone calls the Substation and Officer Moo answers. The Someone has information on a Murder Case. Officer Moo makes an appointment to meet Someone the next day. Officers Cha, Moo and the Guy From Headquarters huddle in the conference room. Officer Moo is told that someone has arrived to see her. When Officer Moo walks into the reception area, she is not thrilled to see Drunken Chaebo talking with the Chief. Officer Moo frosts Drunken Chaebol's eyeballs and he leaves. She and Officer Cha exchange a Look. Officer cha receives a breathy-voiced phone call from the Stepmother. In a Cafe, Drunken Chaebol lists all of his attractive qualities. The list is not a long one. Officer Moo is like, 'Tis a pity you're a hoodlum. She tells him that her Daughter wants him to be her Father but She has no interest in being his wife. Moreover, since we are In Laws Confucius says we can't marry regardless. Officer Moo leaves the cafe. (By the way, where on earth do the producers find Drunken Chaebol's 1950's Times Sqaure Pimp-style attire? Is that shirt a lame joke, or what?) In the private room of an elegant restaurant, the Stepmother warns Officer Cha to beware of Thug Sr.. He's like, Thanks but you're his Moll and had no problem when he was breaking other people's legs. Don't contact me ever again. He leaves the room, Korean Hard Guy style. Officer Cha's Father exits his house and enters the courtyard, where Halmoni is stewing because Officer Cha has yet to return home. He's like Don't fret, boychik done made 21 a while ago. She expresses some remorse about breaking up her Grandson's relationship with Officer Moo before re-entering the house. Officer Cha returns home and encounters his Father in the courtyard. His father is still stunned by Halmoni's change of heart. He tells his Son that he iw worried that Thug Sr. may harm him or the Stepmother. In his office, Thug Sr. receives a phone call. It's the Murder Suspect. He tells Thug Sr. that he is on his way to talk with Officer Moo, since Thug Sr. has been avoiding him. He reminds Thug Sr. that his Son killed Officer Moo's husband while driving drunk. Thug Sr. shouts and grinds his teeth. Officer Moo sits in a cafe waiting for the Murder Suspect. At other tables, Officer Cha and his Headquarters Accomplice sit and attempt to look random. After two fruitless hours, they give up and leave. Thug Sr. arrives at his Daughter's office and drills her a few New Ones for not telling him about Drunken Chaebol's crush on Officer Moo. When she tells him that Officer Moo loves someone else, he seems even angrier that someone would think that she is too good for his son, even though approximately 98% of the women on earth are too good for his son.. When Thug Sr. learns that it is Officer Cha whose romantic dust his Son is eating, he curses and storms out of the room. Thug Sr. storms into his house and confronts the Stepmother. He has figured out that she was attemting to stick his Son with the Single Mom in hopes of finding a more sutable catch for her own son, Officer Cha. She's like, Not that ther's anything wrong with that. They grasp the Bull by Its Tail and face the end of their relationship. they bicker. He tells her that she can't leave until he kicks her out of the house. She's like, Cash me outside. the Stepmother leaves the room and Thug Sr. pouts aggressively. Drunken Chaebol and the Flunky, two richardsimmons-holes with broken hearts, throw back shots in a bar. Drunken Chaebol is like, She'll love me someday. Or else. Drunken Chaebol stumbles into the Substation and is assisted into the break room where he can wait for Officer Moo. the Officers on duty are like, WTF? Who should be sitting in the break room drinking a cup of coffee when Drunken Chaebol stumbles in but --drum roll-- Officer Cha. Drunken Chaebol demands that Officer Cha stop junk-blocking him. Officer Cha reminds Drunken Chaebol that he is a criminal and a coward. They face off across the break room table
  2. RECAP, EPISODE 98 Officer Cha's Headquarters Colleague calls Officer Moo and asks her to replace him on a stakeout with Officer Cha, since he has to take his child to the hospital. As Officer Moo approaches Officer Cha's car, the Murder Suspect stalks her and grabs her from behind. She turns around and faces him. Ha! It is in fact Officer Cha. She explains why she is there. In a private room in the hotel, Thug Sr. and several other pigs in suits are well into their cups. thug Sr. receives a cellphone call and leaves the room to take it. A voice tells him that he will not be joining the group because "The police are on my tail." In their surveillance car, Officers Cha and Moo watch Thug Sr. and his fellow porkers leave the hotel. They argue about whether she should have joined the stakeout that night, even though his Partner requested that she substitute for him. He drives off and leaves her standing on the street alone, Korean Hard Guy Style. Thug Sr. enters his living room, calls Grim Reaper Hwang, and complains that the police interfered with his [lanned meeting with the Murder Suspect. Hwang tells him best not to have such meetings during the near future, since Officer Cha is on his trail. Officer Moo returns home. Her Brother tells her that Drunken Chaebol wants to marry her. She makes it clear that the desire is not mutual. Officer Cha sits in his bedroom and sighs. Officer Moo sits in her bedroom and recalls her encounter with Officer Cha. Morning.

His Sister gets some Hangover Soup from the Caretaker and considerable grief from Halmoni. Officer Cha's Father tells Halmoni that the Caretaker will not be cooking lunch today because he and she are having lunch with her Son. This is news to the Caretaker but her husband's assertiveness makes her happy. At the Substation the Chief is embarrassed when, while doing Old Man Stretching exercises, Officer Moo's Mother arrives with the Substation's lunch boxes. At least his Old man Back Scratcher is nowhere in evidence. He gushes over her. Everyone goes up to the break room for lunch, except for Officer Cha. Officer Cha receives a call from his Father. Officeer Moo's Mother watches the Officers eat. The Chief continues to gush over her. The Stepmother makes an unannounced visit to the Chicken restaurant to speak with her Daughter.

After Lunch, the Caretaker's Son returns to his Office with his Mother and Stepfather. Officer Cha's father meets Officer Moo's Brother for the first time. He is beginning to have second thoughts about opposing his Son's relationship with Officer Moo. Drunken Chaebol enters his Father's office and invites him to lunch but encounters hostility. Thug Sr. receives a phone call and orders his son to leave. But after his Son leaves, he doesn't pick up. In a hotel room, the Suspected Murderer looks at his cellphone and curses. While Drunken Chaebol and the Flunky are talking in his Office, he receives a call. It is from Officer Moo's Daughter. Disgusting. The Headquarters Colleague arrives at the Substation to consult with Officer Cha. Officer Cha reproaches him for involving Officer Moo in the Stakeout. At the Substation, Officer Moo receives a call from her Daughter's teacher. She learns that her Daughter is out of class eating ice cream with Drunken Chaebol and seems to realize that Things Have Gone Too Far. In the locker room at the end of the day, the Female Colleague claims to Officer Moo that her meeting with Officer Cha the night before went better than it actually did. On her cellphone, the Stepmother is offering to sell one of her assets for Bottom Daughter. When she hears Thug Sr. enter the house, she rings off. In their bedroom, Thug Sr. wolfs down some heart pills. He receives another call which he doesn't answer.

Night fell long ago but Officer Moo's Daughter has yet to return home. Officer Moo receives a call and joins Drunken Chaebol and her daughter in a cafe.

Drunken Chaebol stands alone and looks exasperated.
  3. RECAP, EPISODE 97 The tall Man is lurking on a park bench as Officer Moo's Mother and daughter walk by. When the Daughter, who clearly Doesn't Know any better, sees Drunken chaebol, she runs to join him. They embrace. Yuck. Rather than kicking Drunken Chaebol's richardsimmons, Officer Moo's Mother looks on wistfully. She notes that he "looks down," and commiserates -- raher than noting that it's high time life handed him a few lemons. At long last, Drunken chaebol Gets Going, but not before he and the child engage in additional yuckiness.

Drunken Chaebol tells him, So Be It, and leaves the room. Thug Sr. emits an evil chuckle.

When his Father enters the room, we learn that the Suspected Murderer was also a suspect in a drug case that the Department's top Brass covered up.

We learn that the night of the collision, Drunken chaebol was so out of it that he still doesn't know that he was in a collision. The Suspected Murderer makes it clear that if Thug Sr. wants his son to remain in blissful ignorance, it's going to cost him.

Officers Cha and Moo are fine with that but her current partner, who has a crush on her, erupts. Ha! The Stepmother and the sister are facing off again. The Sister no longer cares about her natural mother's sinful ways, since the Stepmother is promising that she will soon be free of Thug Sr. and they will cross over together into the Financial Promised Land. Jeez, this is disgusting. The Sister makes the Stepmother cry by bringing holiday side dishes, which were actually cooked by the Caretaker. The Sister returns to the Chicken restaurant and whines to her Husband that she didn't have the nerve to ask the Stepmother for money. Just then, her father enters, places a money envelope on the table, and tells her that it is from her brother. The Sister weeps (crocodile?) tears.

Officer Cha leaves Thug Central but outside, notices Officer Cha and his Headquarters Accomplice in an unmarked car on a Stakeout.

He takes advantage and Gets Going. When Officer Cha catches up with Officer Moo, she tells him that she has just encountered the drunk driver who killed her Husband.
  6. TO ALL: -- In a well-run U.S. Police Department (and, to be sure, many are not) Both Officers cha and Moo would have felt required to report their familial connections to the Thug Sr. Crime Organization. - - I'm back to thinking that the Female Colleague is basically a fine, if not perfect, Human Being. Sure she acted out when she was first disappointed to learn that Officer Cha loved Officer Moo. That makes her a Human Being. But she relented throughout their relationship (significantly not accepting Officer Cha's ister's offers to help sabotage their relationship) and,, even when it was clearly ended, asked Officer Moo if she would be OK with her pursuing Officer Cha. @finebyme : -- "Acting like a police officer" should hopefully include the ability to address an incident without force if no force is required, no? Isn't that your expectation when you are detained or pulled over by a police officer? -- I think that "legacy" decisions are human nature for anything that is desirable. The world over. In the United states, it is well known that "legacy" hires, selections or admissions occur for anything that is desirable: from admissions to craft union apprenticeship programs to admissions to Harvard University, to hiring. My particular interest is cultural and political journalism and the obvious nepotism in these U.S. industries is laughable. It may be that Koreans are more virtuous and restrained in this regard but I am skeptical.T @carlemyers Actually, I'd be delighted if an Officer as decent and competent as Officer Moo was patrolling my neighborhood. [Note" I mean no offense to the Buena Park, CA Police Department, which is fine (and, in fact, would be delighted to hire a Korean American like Officer Moo); but as for the Police department in my former city of residence for 40 years, Washington, DC: I would have preferred Officer Moo to most personnel,, up to and including the Chief of Police who recently resigned. So MPD, you are entitled to feel offended, since that was my intent] @carlemyers With respect, you are quibbling. If a man or woman can, under color of law, throw me to the ground, put me in handcuffs, and force me into involuntary incarceration, as we have seen Officers Cha and Moo do many times, he or she is by definition a Police Officer and not a Community Relations Whatever,, I assume that Korea is like the U.S.: A Detective is a senior investigative police officer but a Routine Patrol Officer can still introduce some hell into your life if he or she so chooses. In the United states, Patrol Officers are encouraged to relate to the community but no one mistakes them for Social Workers. Least of all the Patrol Officers themselves.,
  7. RECAP, EPISODE 94 Later, Officer Moo encounters Officer Cha in the break room and complains bitterly about being excluded. They face off. she accuses him of excluding her. He doesn't deny it. As Officer Cha storms out of the room, the Female Colleague enters. She notices his state of P.O.tivity. She adds two and two and her math is adequate to the task. Later, as Officer Moo has changed into Civies in the locker room, the Female colleague enters. She's like, If you don't want that last hamburger, can I have it? Officer Moo's Brother and Sister In Law bill and coo in their bedroom. She tells him that she wants at least three children. He's like, Let's get started right now. Officer Moo's Brother joins his mother, who is working on her Laptop. Jeez, it looks like the only Laptop size available for sale in Korea is Humungous. The Substation Chief has left an anonymous post on her Lunch for Delivery websiie raving about her food. He is so excited about her cooking that she is a little excited about him. Officer Moo's Brother tells his Mother that he plans to visit the Thug family during the holidays. She's like, are you insane? Officer Moo pokes her head in, and after she pulls her head out, they discuss her breakup with Officer Cha. In the bathroom, Officer Moo furiously spritzes her face as she remembers her encounter with Officer Cha. before she can get a proper Weep on, her Mother sticks her head in and summons her for a Talk. Officer Moo pulls herself together and enters her Mother's bedroom. Her Mother is like, It's common for couples to break up. Eaxy come, Easy go! Go Forth! Don't look back. And anyway, I told you to break up with him! Officer Moo is like, Thanks Mom! In Halmoni's bedroom, she, her Son and the Caretaker sit Indian Style while she spews forth. Like usual, Halmoni is PO'd but doesn't know Jack about what is going on. Hey, Halmoni, let's do the math: Your Son had a retirement fund of $40,000: -- His Beloved had a debt of E40,000. -- -- Your Son paid off the debt and now the $40,000 is gone. -- His daughter angered her chicken restaurant's landlord by bragging that her Big bucks natural mother was going to set her up in a Luxe restaurant, . When the Stepmother couldn't put any money where her mouth was and Officer Cha's Sister's Chicken Restaurant wasn't going anywhere, the angry landlord raised the yearly rent by $36,000. As her hapless Husband correctly observed, the $36K was basically a fee for stupidly running her mouth. Plus the Sister wanted $4K from her Father so her Son could join the Rich {arent's tutoring Group, which he didn't want to join to begin with and when he was forced to attend, got him beaten up besides. -- -- Had your Son still had the $40K when your Franddaughter requested it, your granddaughter would have flushed it down the toilet and it would still be gone. -- Looks like it was a good thing your Son spent his money to bail out his Wife before your Granddaughter could get her hands on it.

  12. Jeez, where is "Political Correctness" when we need it? Perhaps the regular author is on vacation for Korean Thanksgiving and the current scripts are being written by someone who was run out of the industry for male chauvinism and can now only find gig-work. I'm a man, but it makes no sense to me that a woman who: -- First encountered Drunken Chaebol after he drunkenly disrupted a flight into Seoul; -- Next encountered Drunken Chaebol in a case where he was not guilty of rape but supremely guilty of being a richardsimmons-Hole in the first Degree; -- Next encountered Drunken Chaebol while he was assaulting her own brother; -- And knows first hand from her Mother that Drunken Chaebol's family members are swine -- And finally is a Police Officer of some integrity who knows that Drunken Chaebol exudes a Felony Stink would in real life have anything to do with Drunken Chaebol. Again, as a Man, it pains me to say it, but in light of all of the above considerations, a more realistic script would substitute a Korean Mafia Princess with a Capital S-Line for Drunken Chaebol and a more plausible male Police Officer as likely to be ruled by the "small head' as the "big head." for Robocop Cha. Then, this recent plot change would make sense. Haven't we all witnessed something similar in "real life?"
