Lol at the title of this article. It can be read as if SSR was enraged with the script or something. Hahaha. Why can't they just put the character name in the title too?

Guys, I think Na Wang Sik will be saved by someone. Maybe Byun, Sunny or Yura. In a smooth way, Yura can say he's not Wang Sik since emperor believe she's the one knows WS really well. In a harsh way, Byun could make him escape n prpbably yura or sunny could save dongsik from palace. And it seems hyuk just try hard to convincing himself about Sunny relation to WS/ WB. Perhaps he put her in the chamber without anyone can see her especially woobin.

Some said Sunny is using the emperor. I can say yes. But at the same time she wants him to wake up. She realized Hyuk is not the only one could be blamed. 

Another thing, wang sik said his purpose to gave the gift with his name on it to some imperial victims is to make people realize how cruel imperial family and if something happen to him,royal family can't touch him. This could also help him. It will be hard if hyuk use Sunny to catch wang sik which I believe he will come to save her. 

Last one, what if the old lady who doesn't want to sell the island is failed-death grandma? Kkkkk... ED will surprise to dead when she personally meet to persuade her.

Actually I always found it odd.  The ED is so cruel.  She would even get rid of both her sons.  She is just trying to persuade an old lady to sell her the land and not try to harm her or kill her for it!  It's quite unbelievable!

Wang Sik may want justice for victims but sorry, I think it is not the right way.  He stole the money.  He is playing Robin Hood!  I loved everything about WS up to the scene of him distributing stolen money in his name.  I can't reconcile with that.

When ED and Ms.Choi talk bout the island they speak a woman not want to sell the land. This make me not sure if the island owner is Imperial Family, that's why ED want Sa Geun Ja sell the land to her, maybe ED want to make something for her own glory. If the island owner is Ssu Ni, maybe the secret of this will reveal. Ssu Ni must be give the island back to their real owner. Or Maybe ED agent sell the island to GED and make GED buy the island, but ED corrupted all the money. 

 

GED name is not Sa Geun Ja.. Grand Empress Dowager Joo.. if she's alive, does ED just calm down?

I agree with this. If he wanted to give the imperial money that he stolen to the victims(?)..he should have done it anonymously. In some sense it is compensation money, he could have just handed it over without saying its from NWS. He's playing robin hood. And seriously...who are these victims, i don't think I've seen or heard about them before. Suddenly we have so many victims. Hua3

 

Edit:

(In response to @flutterby06 comments on the above)

 

To clarify..its not surprising there are a lot more victims of the imperial family. Not  surprising at all. Does it need to be included in the plot? Imo, not really. 

 

I don't mind the money giving, its compensation money. I just thought he could have given it anonymously. Or he can sign it under the secret organization name. Or a moniker/alias. Not using his own name. 

 

At first i too thought he might be signing with NWS to cause an uproar. But when its used too constantly, and now with more random people..it feels out of place. My opinion.

 

I reread my original post. The sentence 'and it seems that he likes being the hero' is uncalled for. Sorry for that. It has now been deleted from the original post.

Hua3

 

Well, let's count the victim we've seen so far.

1.Na Wang Shik

2.Oh Sunny

3. Chief Byun

4. Kang Joo Seung (and his brother who has no idea if his brother is dead or alive)

5. Team Manager Hong

These are the victims we know about. We've their story. But that doesn't mean there's no more when we could see how despicably ED's mind works. The victims of Imperial Family don't need to be directly involved with Lee Hyuk..May be they're ill treated by ED. We've seen her saying " Imperial Family have no sins. Because no one can held us accountable." That kind of perception doesn't comes without doing lots of sins.

We've also seen many people working with chief Byun to reveal the truth of Imperial Family. He said to Oh Sunny that they're also the victim of imperial family.

Usually people with much power tends to be involved in many corruption. So it's possible that many victims arose from there. The drama can't focus on every such victim, can it?

 

When Wang Shik gave money to the other guards he said that these are the money that Imperial Family took from them. Other victims are getting this money only because NWS stole and thought of spreading those money. Otherwise they'd be in Lee Hyuk's safe..would've been used for buying luxury cars, wine, vacation house etc whatever he wants. He's not really becoming poor because just one safe has been stolen. I hope we don't think he keeps all his money in his house!

 

Wang Shik stole the money to spite Lee Hyuk and blame Min Yura.. Yes.. He's using the money for both purpose. He's trying to help them with the money and also reaching his names to people hoping that there'd be a little uproar when he gets caught.. What's the problem in it? None is angel in this drama. You can't be an angel and hope to take revenge. If you like being angel, you should forget about taking revenge. Just forgive and move on. But we've no such character here. Hoping there'd be one such character after going through all those injustice is a bit too naive is what I think.

The problem is not when one is not being an angel..average people are mixture of some good and bad qualities. But it's a big problem when one is being evil..so evil that he or she thinks it's nothing wrong being like that.

I just assumed it was to advance the storyline, to find out what NWS did with the things he stole and to have ED and LH find out who stole them as initially NWS made it like it was MYR.. Also from his conversation with Byun its a way for him to be someone important, so it will help expose the family and they will not be able to harm him.

Considering how LH and ED operate I don't think it is that unbelievable that there are more victims. Who knows what they have been up to since they have been in power, they are capable of anything and they have shown them threatening numerous people, from journalist, hospitals and others. Their actions with SH, WS and Sunny show the things they are able to do to hide their crimes even if it means involving and hurting people.

How to save Dong Shik?

He wasn't the main target, he'll save, he's only a trap so Wang Shik would come out. What if when tension occurs, Sunny or Yu Ra says that Dong Shik is the son of Yu Ra and Kang Joo Sung, and now replace asking where Kang Joo Sung is hidden, because he knows everything.

 

How to save Woo Bin? 

Sunny prevented Lee Hyuk from shooting Woo Bin. Lee Hyuk was shaken and shattered, seeing Sunny defending Woo Bin and also shaking from Sunny questioning him. Sunny give him a lot of statement and question toward LH that make him confuse. Sunny also make Woo Bin not shot LH. LH can't die, if she want to solve the mystery how GED die? 

 

Don't forget Sunny have authority toward personil in the palace, she can punish every guard or something like that. LH also will be shock, because of this.. It hard to Byun or Yu Ra to save Woo Bin or Wang Shik. But Sunny authority will make her more easy to save Woo Bin, she is okay to fight only Lee Hyuk or ED. Lee Hyuk suspended his authority, and ED still get punishment because of past incident. Yoon in coma, so Sunny is the higher authority in the palace now. And also Sunny is untouchable right now, no one can hurt her. Or she just need to going live with her phone and show what LH do to the people? 

 

ED will angry toward Sunny, how can she drive the palace, Lee Hyuk heart, broken his son heart and also will ED claimed if this make the Imperial Family in danger.

Wang Sik distributed money that have been 'stolen' to imperial victims. He puts his name to declare he was also the victim and if something happen to him, people already suspicious and imperial can't hurt him easily. I think this is just his strategy to make the criminality of imperial are getting known by people.

The blood on his suit and face in the preview perhaps his own. He always throw everything when he's angry that perhaps hurting himself lol.

I'm interesting with JNR and CHJ, they have a project that similar character..

 

In Fated To Love You.. CJH also fall in love with JNR, when her status is a wife.. in this drama... CHJ also in love with JNR, when her status is a wife.

 

In FTLY CHJ clearly show his love toward JNR by some sweet moment, and secretly adoring her, he is one side love in the end. 

 

 

In TLE CHJ secretly show his attention to JNR, he'll do everything to make sure JNR in protected. 

 

 

The opposite scene FTLY CHJ blew the JNR wound, and gave it a plaster, on TLE JNR blew CHJ wounds and gave plaster.

 

Husband character also similar, they married because of situation force to do that, then he have another woman that he love first, JNR come to his life suddenly be a wife, although the end in love with JNR character, both show the jealousy toward CHJ character. But there's difference 

1. FTLE : husband character is good, caring, sometimes wreid but not make him being a criminal or something.

2. TLE : husband character is unstable, really bad, killing is posible to him, but he have a bad memories in past, that trapped him.

Well yes..they could have been a bit detailed with how few people in the list became victim of Imperial family. But I guess writer thought that the viewers would understand the implied message. And about the uproar, I hope you didn't miss the conversation between Mr. Byun and NWS at the last episode. That scene explains how NWS is trying to distribute the stolen money among victims as well as making himself known to people so it can create an impact when he gets caught.

But yes we could have different opinions on whether NWS has the right to do so. 

 

Can't believe it's the last week. :tears:

 Hope the drama to be wrapped up well.

Omg Hyuk just went on another level of cray. Yisshhh.

 

Shooting the lights or an inaminate object i can still tolerate, screaming is still ok, throwing stuff is a norm by now..but if he kills or abuse people or lay a hand on sunny! I can't accept! He was fine for a few eps, i had my hopes high when he saved Bin from evil mum's torture place. I'm still bummed they had to make him super cray at the end. But it is inline with his mental state and character. So i'll just accept and go with it. Lol :P

 

Anyways, I have now finished Return. Since the show has affirmed in the latest ep that Hyuk is cray beyond repair, evil mum is still evil, sojin is starting to crack and also based on this new preview, I want his and his family's downfall to be at a minimum similar to Oh Tae Suk's and friends downfall. OTS lost everything, his evil friends, his wife, his reputation, connections, money, pride..everything. All 4 evil friends lost everything, and one lost his life in the hands of his own friend. Unfortunately the heroine lost everything too as she worked her way towards her ultimate revenge. Huhu

 

A few more days to go for the finale eps!

 

By the way, have they finished filming? When is the wrap up party~

 

edit:

i just realized the translations on the IG caption, maybe the uploader edited the post. The kill him baby is weird. Who is the baby? :sweatingbullets:

Oh mannnn...this coward emperor seems won't change till end. He even forcing himself to Sunny. I feel weird that some fans are happy about the emperor kissing her. He's hurting her for God sake lol.

At least we know Woobin is safe. Perhaps by his forces in the palace or byun..

Yura could be the one who come as a nice girl at the end. I hope kang hee will face to face with her. Cat fighting is fun to watch XD.

Haha. I wonder too. And i also wonder if ED is Hyuk and Yoon's real mother or not. She manipulates Hyuk and even planned Yoon's accident. Nanny is bad influence on Ari and ED is even worse than nanny. Both are a disgrace of motherhood. Tsk3.
