Officer Moo arrives home and is greeted by her daughter. Officer Moo's mother joins them. They talk. In her bedroom, Officer Moo checks her cell phone. The Internet is still condemning her. She hopes that her mother will not learn of the cyber lynch mob. Officer Moo crawls into bed with her mother. Her mother asks her what is worrying her. Nothing, Officer Moo explains. Then Officer Moo brings up the false high school assault charge. Her mother tells her not to worry since she is a Government Employee. No worries until retirement in 30 years. Officer Cha's family is at the breakfast table. Officer Cha's sister calls the Caretaker into the dining room and introduces her to her father. Her father stares at the table, since he already is, ahem, well acquainted with the caretaker. He apologizes. She accepts. Halmoni and the Caretaker eat breakfast. Drunken Chaebol remembers the beating he took from Officer Moo and is not happy. Drunken Chaebol's sister serves her father and stepmother breakfast. they bicker. It turns out that Drunken Chaebol's sister has a problem with her hand that multiple surgeries have been unable to correct. Drunken Chaebol's father looks like he detects an odor. It is his son, lurking outside the dinging room. Drunken Chaebol decides that the best option is to return to his bedroom. His father enters the bedroom and they bicker. Drunken Chaebol's father reminds him that he is behind in clearing out the tenants of their shopping arcade. Officers Cha and Moo learn that there is no CCTV at the location where the incident with the Brat occurred. They canvass the area for witnesses but can;t find any. Officer Moo's mother has served Drunken Chaebol a breakfast which he is enjoying. His stepmother enters and he criticizes her cooking. Stepmother is not pleased. Drunken Chaebol departs. The Stepmother reminds Officer Moo's mother that the family business does not bear scrutiny, hence don't repeat any of it. Officer Moo's mother has already figured that out. Drunken Chaebol's sister, in high heels, is foolishly working on a step ladder attempting to change a light bulb. He enters the room in time to prevent her from falling. (This segment is apparently designed to demonstrate Drunken Chaebol's "softer side." Ever noticed that when we're told about a man's "softer side," he is usually piece of, well, work?) The Stepmother interviews an eager Blind Date for Drunken Chaebol. Surprise, Surprise, she isn't concerned about anything that she's heard about Drunken Chaebol. And she's heard a lot. We learn that the potential "blind date," works in Broadcasting, further evidence that her ethics are beyond reproach.. Drunken Chaebol sits with his father in his office. The flunky Drunken Chaebol beat up the night before in the gym enters with an aluminum suitcase and deposits it on the coffee table. Drunken Chaebol clasps the suitcase to his sunken bosom without either of them examining its contents. His father reminds Drunken Chaebol that he is a wastrel and worthless, except as his gofer. His father's saying for the day: Trust money, not people. Drunken Chaebol's stepmother enters and he exits. As he leaves the room, we see that he has somehow managed to spend big bucks on a suit that looks like a pair of pajamas. The Stepmother speaks to her husband about her interview with the potential Blind Date. The Stepmother is no fool: What kind of woman wouldn't care about the rumors surrounding her stepson? Drunken Chaebol's father agrees that she will never do. Turns out that they are searching for a woman of "high character" who is also willing to marry their son. LOL. Drunken Chaebol returns to his own office and verbally abuses the flunky he beat up the night before. The Flunky protests that he is not his punching bag. Drunken Chaebol reminds him that he is. Officers Cha and Moo enter the PD. All of their colleagues are fielding telephone calls about Officer Moo's alleged brutality. Apparently The Internet has also flooded the Department's website with complains. To his credit, their supervisor reminds them that Officer Moo has done nothing wrong and they must "get through it." Officer Moo goes into a conference room and weeps. A fellow officer brings her a cup of coffee. They talk. She says she is looking for evidence of her innocence. He says that Money Talks and the higher ups have already gotten the message. Not for nothing is the "Grim Reaper" the Grim Reaper. Then he tells her to appeal to the higher ups with evidence of her innocence. Consistency is not his strong suit. Officer Cha's father nervously compliments the Caretaker on her work. The Caretaker nervously accepts the compliment. When he leaves the room, the Caretaker thinks that he may be a Man From Her Past. Officer Cha approaches the exit at the end of the day. She returns some clothes that she lent him. She explains that she scorched his shirt with an iron and hopes that her attempt to replace it is acceptable. She vows to prove her innocence. He departs. Officer Cha returns home. He logs onto The Internet and notes something uspicious about the pictures of the injuries Officer Moo purportedly inflicted on the Brat. He enters his nephew's bedroom and Confronts Him. Did the Brat have any bruises after his encounter with Officer Moo? No. The nephew intimates that the Brat's father may be abusive. Officer Moo watches her daughter sleep and stares at a photo of her dead husband. She asks for the strength to endure. Morning. Officer Moo stands in front of the PD holding a placard insisting that she is neither abusive nor used excessive force. The Supervisor calls Officer Cha. Officer Cha drives up to the PD, takes in the scene, and rolls his eyes.
  12. It looks like the writers are setting up a 3-way race for Officer Moo's affections. Most obvious are Officer Cha and the Drunken Chaebol. But note that the partner in Officer Moo's brother's advertising business has been casting some appreciative glances in her direction. Will Officer Moo her two tightly wound suitors in favor of her brother's more laid back partner? Stay tuned.
  13. RECAP, EPISODE 9 Officer Moo arrives at the PD. Based on something on The Internet, one of her colleagues asks if she was a "Juvenile Offender." Officer Moo logs on and discovers that someone has posted details from her supposedly confidential Permanent Record. Korea is not that different from the United States. Apparently, Officer Moo was charged with assault for an incident in her youth. Likely, the Grim Reaper has leaked this information. Interestingly, her fellow female officer is the least sympathetic. All of her colleagues are disgustingly sanctimonious. Her supervisor calls Officer Moo into his office. When she is behind a closed door, her fellow officers gossip and act like jerks. Officer Moo's fellow officers eagerly fill Officer Cha in when he arrives. he reproaches them for trafficking in information which has been illegally leaked. Officer Moo's boss asks her whether it is true that she was a juvenile offender. She admits that she was. As a 12th grader, she was accused of assault and suspended. The Boss tells her to leave but Officer Cha enters before she can depart. She continues out the door. Officer Cha faces off with The Boss. The Boss tells Officer Cha that the Grim Reaper called him about the juvenile offense and told him that he was the arresting officer. Officer Cha is like, Juvenile offense, so what? Officer Cha opines that the Grim Reaper is clearly in the process of framing Officer Moo. Per the Boss, Aigoo! My head hurts! Officer Cha's sister arrives home with the Woman Who Owes Officer Moo's Mother Money. The two women enter Halmoni's bedroom. Halmoni's mood is sour, as usual. The Debtor expresses sympathy and tells Halmoni how brave she is. halmoni begins to warm up. Yes, I'm like that. But the Debtor wants to chat and Halmoni doesn't. Officer Cha's sister takes her leave and heads for the restaurant. Halmoni starts to interrogate the Debtor. The Debtor says, take a bath first. Officer Cha's mother arrives at the restaurant. She informs him that Halmoni seems to be getting on well with her new caretaker. She leaves the restaurant to run an errand. Their son, who is cutting class again arrives at restaurant. For some reason (this is a restaurant!) they order food from a delivery service. The Drunken Chaebol's Stepmother talks on the phone with someone about investments. After she rings off, Officer Moo's mother begins vacuuming and makes a lot of noise. Drunken Chaebol's Stepmother touches her forehead in exasperation and goes off to confront the source of the noise. She directs that vacuuming occur only when she is not home. Halmoni has taken her first bath in days and is a much better mood. The Debtor applies lotion to her skin and Halmoni manages a smile. Officer Moo's brother "takes a meeting" with Drunken Chaebol and pitches his firm's advertising services. Drunken Chaebol requests a proposal for promoting a new shopping mall. Officer Moo walks down a corridor and overhears her colleagues gossiping about her juvenile offense. Officer Cha arrives and Officer Moo goes off to pick up some supplies. Officer Cha overhears the remainder of his colleagues conversation, enters, and busts their chops. Drunken Chaebol's father and stepmother discuss a real estate investment. His wife leaves to fetch dinner. He opens an envelope. It contains an indictment. He calls his attorney and yells at him. Turns out, Drunken Chaebol has been indicted. Drunken Chaebol, unfortunately, arrives home at just that moment. His father chastises him for violating the family motto: Don't Get Caught. Turns out that the indictment is for something that Drunken Chaebol did while (wait for it) drunk. Drunken Chaebol bickers with his father. He angrily shoves his stepmother to the floor. To his credit, his father clocks him a good one. Drunken Chaebol leaves the house without rendering the apology his father demands. Drunken Chaebol's sister works her magic in the kitchen. The doorbell rings. A tall young man (Who is this guy?) enters. He takes a seat at the table and she serves him some food. He remarks that no man ever dared to "make a move"on her because of her brother. Just then, Drunken Chaebol calls and rips him a couple of "new ones." At the end of the day, Halmoni is sleeping but the Debtor needs a bath. As she starts to disrobe, Officer Cha's father enters. She shrieks. Abashed, he leaves. Officer Cha's sister arrives and the Debtor is told that she needs to sleep in the same room as Halmoni. She is not happy. Officer Cha's sister talks with her father and asks whether anything is wrong. He says no. But he is, well, Excited. As a widower, he's entitled. Drunken Chaebol's sister arrives home and offers to cook her stepmother a meal. Her stepmother remarks on the difference between her two step children. lShe tells her stepmother that men take longer to mature, and her brother is taking longer than other men. Drunken Chaebol's sister retires to her bedroom. She recalls an encounter with Officer Moo's brother and is happy. She remembers that he is color blind. As Officer Moo's brother arrives home with his partner in tow, his mother is playing with Officer Moo's daughter. Officer Moo's mother tells them that she has made Mugwort stew. They are more appreciative than one would expect. It turns out that Officer Moo is working the night shift. In the gym, Officer Moo vigorously abuses a punching bad. She remembers her initial encounter with the Grim Reaper. It turns out that she was falsely accused of assaulting a politician's daughter. As is his wont, he was more eager to close the case and please the influential family than to do justice. The Rich Brat enters and falsely accuser. Case Closed! Sayeth the Grim Reaper. As she remembers, she assaults the bag with more vigor. Drunken Chaebol enters and confronts an underling who ratted him out to his Dad. The underling is dressed n fighting attire. Will Drunken Chaebol have a go? Yes. the underling submits to a beating. Officer Moo arrives and tells Drunken Chaebol to leave the underling alone. He's like, Who is going to make me? She climbs into the wring. She makes him. Then she knocks him to the floor. The underling attends to Drunken Chaebol's wounds. Officer Moo leaves the gym and, on the street, encounters a chastened version of Drunken Chaebol. Since this is not their first encounter, he accuses her of being interested in him. She's like, No way! You're a Thug. I'm a police officer. She tells him that there is still time for him to Turn His Life Around. He isn't interested.
