Thoughts on ‘Switch ~Change the world~’ Episode 15-16
In the opening of episode 15, we see that Sung Doo has been set up, this time by Sa Do Chan himself. After all his cons and schemes and lies, Do Chan does the unthinkable. He immediately tells Sung Doo the truth. Yes he’s that ‘prosecutor’ from the island gambling raid, but no he’s not really a prosecutor.

He freely admits that he’s only been playing a role, pretending to be Baek Jun Soo because the real BJS was injured in Sokcho. It’s a mind blower of an opening. Why would he confess the biggest secret he’s been using, and to a criminal, no less?

Well SDC is a master of the con game, and he knows that sometimes the best way to hook a fish is to tell them just enough of the truth to make them think they know what’s really going on. But of course, SDC has more tricks up his sleeve, lol.



With Sung Doo’s suspicions seemingly confirmed, SDC then launches into his next scam. He tells Sung Doo that thanks to his position as a (fake) prosecutor, he can do a ‘setting’ against Geum Tae Woong… one that will net him around 300 million dollars.

Whether SDC knows that Sung Doo has already tried to cheat GTW or not, I’m not certain, but one thing is sure– SDC can smell another con artist a mile away. So he tempts Sung Doo’s greed by mentioning the 300 million.

And right away, you can see the spark in Sung Doo’s eyes at the mention of that much money (the acting in Switch continues to blow me away. Even side characters get every little thing just right!).


Sa Do Chan uses that moment to show Sung Doo a barrel and a bag of cement (apparently to seal him inside and drop it into the ocean, mob-style), and Sung Doo immediately caves. He promises not to snitch on SDC’s plans, and we see a flashback of SDC’s crew in action. Following Sung Doo, they realize that he’s looking for their partner, director Bong, so they decide to give him exactly what he needs to make GTW ease his pressure and let Sung Doo return to the fold (presumably as their inside spy).

First, director Bong places himself in Sung Doo’s (drunken) path, so that Sung Doo feels close to catching ‘red underpants’. Then back to the present scene, when Sung Doo stammers that he will help SDC, and that in fact, he wants revenge on GTW himself. He promises to help them in exchange for a little of the 300 million that SDC ‘accidentally’ mentioned earlier.

[News]  Jang Keun Suk’s film concert tour wrapped up, attracting 20000 people at 20 venues across Japan!
Jang Keun Suk, Prince of Asia, is a versatile entertainer who has been active as a singer as well as an actor. His film concert tour titled “JANG KEUN SUK FILM CONCERT TOUR ~ My Sweet Home ~” had the final shows at Toyosu PIT on July 2.

Currently Jang Keun Suk is serving his mandatory military service as a social office worker. This film concert tour gave his fans called “Eels” a special opportunity to look back on the eight years Jang Keun Suk and they walked together for with viewing footages of his shows held in Japan from the first Japan tour “Where is your star?” in 2010 to the last tour in Japan before his enlistment. Not only with sound and live lighting performance but also with some surprises such as silver ribbons (falling down on the audience) and color balls (being thrown to them), the show was so well designed to make the audience feel realistic as if Jang Keun Suk in person were performing on the stage that they fully enjoyed the show.


The show played 22 songs (including an encore) such as “Still” a great song from “You’re beautiful” a drama which made Jang Keun Suk very popular, “Let me cry” his debut song in Japan and other popular songs which always liven up his concerts. The audience had their fill of Jang Keun Suk who showed his various aspects on the stages in the past 8 years.

Following this film concert tour, it’s been decided that Jang Keun Suk’s exhibition “CONEON!! JKS WORLD ZIKZIN PLANET” is going to be held in Tokyo in September. Under the themes of VIEW, EAT, UNAGI, FEEL and COLLECT this exhibition will provide a space where attendants can feel Jang Keun Suk by using the five senses as well as look back on his past activities.
The details of the exhibition will be announced later. Tickets are now available on Lawson Tickets.

Comments about Switch drama from June - July in 2019
1/ It's better than I expected!! I absolutely loved the lead! All the actors did an amazing job! 10-10 would recommend!
2/ Great story line and wonderful actors and actresses. Writers keep you off balance along with the main characters who are always a little off balance. Fast moving and never boring.
3/ A very successful drama ... and finally I see Jang Keun Suk in a double role, even if in Love Rain it was fantastic ... The rich plot doesn't make you bored ... I recommend it to lovers of the action and detective stories. 
4/ The drama is excellent, super fun, the characters each had their identity and their well-respected in drama, it was very good to watch !!!
