Wow! After watching ep9, I really don't know what to say.

 

Do YG believed in DCK or not? I believed Lawyer Han is very very selfish. With her revenge, she didn't thought of others. When a good person who hell bent on revenge, does she/he thinks he/she will be forever good? Definitely Lawyer Han also has been corrupted with her thoughts and action on revenge.

 

I am not so sure of DCK... He looks like he is a good cop but he could have done bad things or mistakes in the past and wants to do the right thing. 

 

I feel soo bad for YG in ep9, he looks soo sad after loosing his only parent. Now we know why his father wanted to come out from prison. He had heart problem and he knew he won't be alive that long that's why he decided to come out for two reasons. For his son and find out the truth of his wife's death.

 

 

If you read the last paragraph, looks like more interesting event is going to happen. We can see that from ep10 preview.

The production crew shared, “The truth of the past, which has been scattered throughout the current events, will start to come together. Please wait and see what kind of choices the corruption investigation team will make while surrounded by a mix of truth and falsehood. The surprise is only beginning. We hope you will look forward to the second act, which will present a more elaborate suspense.”

  • KJM , HTJ and Park - had their thumbs cut but not killed ( KJM died of cardiac arrest due to the torture) 

 

Anyway , I will try to watch this live tonight and give some simple recaps.

 

@triplem KJM's thumb was cut off after his death. I've actually thought that someone tried to mislead the investigators into believing that he was killed by the same guy. Unless he `insisted` on his signature, although he was not the one who killed him, nor did he cut off KJM's thumb as a mean of torturing him.

So my point is , this murderer is not wanting to hide the ledger but wants the ledger to expose its contents. He only purposefully kills the bad guys. He tortures the rest for information. And that is why they keep teasing us with DCK being the possible culprit even right until last night. I am sincerely hoping it is not true of course ( and I don't believe so) as it would be a very twisted sense of justice. 

 

I grieved with YG in this episode. And as I had said before , the adults from 15 years ago have been using and manipulating him. TJ  is a good example.  While she is not the villain , she is making use of  YG's emotions - she had already "groomed" him and set the path for him to come to her aid . He should not and would not have qualified to be a cop. She made that possible. That's why I am glad YG called her out on it at the beginning of the episode. 

 

 

Its a good opinion that maybe the murderer wants the ledger to be exposed and not hide it. Hmm.. i didn't thought of that.. 

 

But its a good way of diverting our opinion and the team that DCK could be the culprit. As I was telling my mom, the writer is good. At first we think ok DCK is a good cop and then out of the blue, it makes us confuse. Is he on the good or the bad side? Then it changes again. And  then now again. I already scratching my head thinking and I haven't come a definite conclusion but one thing I can say that I believe DCK is not the perpetrator. 

 

I agree with you that Lawyer Han is using him. She should know he is a young man who lost his mom 15 years ago and his dad was in jail for all that time and just came out. But then he also got killed in the SAME HOUSE. Can you imagine any human being would feel loosing both parents to murder and in the same house too? I cannot imagine the feeling... 

 

Lawyer Han did say he wanted to become a cop so she helped him to pull strings. But I'm not sure about she grooming him. She is on her revenge and like I stated earlier, people who are on the mode for REVENGE, would not think about other people's feeling around them including their family members and friends. 

But in the end once the revenge is done, the only thing you would feel is EMPTINESS... 

 

I can feel that DCK takes care of his team members but he is a man of secrets. SO definitely people going to think him wrong, especially YG as YG is a soft spot right now. He just lost his dad and he wants to find the truth of his parents death and behind of his parents injudiciousness.. 

 

LETS WAIT FOR EP10..

Yes, and he could easily be suspected. But he keeps me at the edge of the seat but I never suspected him and it would be a shock for me if I was wrong. :)

 

I like how Sooyeon showed concern for him. I think he apreciated that without saying it. Soo-Yeon helped Young-Goon too. She is keeping the team together somehow.

 

****

I also thought the killer cut Kim Jae-Myung`s thumb after he died to confuse the cops. But who knows? In the past he cut the thumb of victim to torture them, to find out more information. Why he did not do that this time?

He did not wanted Kim Jae myung dead before he found out the information about the ledger.

So basically BSy with DCK had set this up . She put blood etc & purposely did this to make whoever the bad guy is think she’s dead.  Dang !

KNEW IT! (can't remember if I put that in my previous comment but DCK said he needed to give KYG something to keep him busy so that the grief didn't bring him down).

 

(LO wants to watch RAW because he is now on the "too impatient to wait for subs" train...)

Poor Jae-Shik having to clean up the mess made by Young-Goon & Team Leader Mr. Do...:unsure: I sure hope he's well compensated by Lawyer Han!:lol: Wonder who's Soo-Yeon's mystery caller??:huh: Young-Goon seriously needs to chill. He lets his anger get the best of him and that can often put the team in jeopardy.

That was a serious mess!  YG even smashed her trophy and her name plate.  :P  Poor Jae Sik!  You know Lawyer Han isn't gonna help tidy up.

 

I really suspected something was going on with those four little round statues on SY's desk, and so it was!  Also, in an earlier scene, we saw some odd lights blinking under YG's desk; I bet she's got his computer bugged, too.

 

When SY was at the funeral hall, she was very quick to stand up when Yeom entered the building.  And I wondered about that because it seemed like another clue that she is Yeom's stooge and that Yeom is Boyfriend.

Then realised there’s a tracker inside his shoe lining!

 

Makes me wonder who had access to his shoes.

 

I am still wondering if YG's dad hid the ledger in the food in the fridge.  It's the one place YG did not check when he was searching the apartment.

So YG found and has the ledger in his shoes wow....surprise !

 

I thought it was a tracker.  :unsure:  But maybe I've got it wrong.  

 

Earlier DCK had described the ledger as "thumb-sized" (if the translator got that right and EWWW! icky when you compare the other thumbs in this drama), so I thought that it would possibly be an old-style memory stick if YG's dad hid it years ago.  But I also remember YG's dad "palming" something (hiding it in his hand) when he was being searched the day he went to the charnal house.

It seems Sooyeon is a plant, just who is listed on her phone as 'boyfriend'?

She is most certainly a plant.  But we do not yet know who is Boyfriend.  My guess is that it is Yeom.

3 Crucial Questions That Will Be Answered In The 2nd Half Of “Watcher”

d2a81c263e3241f98090a5f016aff4d3.jpeg?s=

Watcher,” will open its second act with suspense!

The OCN weekend drama follows Do Chi Kwang (Han Suk Kyu), Kim Young Goon (Seo Kang Joon), and Han Tae Joo (Kim Hyun Joo) chasing after a mysterious incident. The three of them have a tragic past incident that ties them together, and they team up together to root out corruption in the police force.

With no one to believe and nothing that can be predicted, keen attention is being paid to the second half of the drama, and the production crew pointed out the key points to anticipate as the drama spirals towards the ending.

What is the truth of the scandal from 15 years ago that shook the investigation team?

The tragic event from 15 years ago rocked the lives of Do Chi Kwang, Kim Young Goon, and Han Tae Joo, and the truth of the past that is revealed as they dig deeper into the current case is confusing them. Everyone knew that Kim Jae Myung (Ahn Kil Kang), a corrupt police officer, had been serving 15 years in prison after killing his wife. The case, however, fell into a limbo as even Kim Jae Myung had his thumb cut and was murdered. Han Tae Joo, who was conducting a re-investigation from seven years ago with suspicions over the Kim Jae Myung case, also had her thumb cut by an unidentified man.

The statements by Do Chi Kwang and Kim Jae Myung were also sharply mixed. Kim Jae Myung said he realized he had fallen into a trap on the day he was supposed to meet Lieutenant Jang Hyun Goo. He didn’t get the call Do Chi Kwang said he had made, and he claimed that his wife had been alive until he left.

On top of that, Kim Young Goon recovered another memory. Kim Young Goon, who was hiding behind a bathroom curtain, remembered Do Chi Kwang hiding Kim Jae Myung’s jumper inside the washing machine. At the end of the show, the killer’s face changed from Kim Jae Myung’s to Do Chi Kwang’s, adding to the shock.

What is the truth behind the tragic incident that changed the life of the corruption investigation team, and who is the real culprit in the case? There is a shocking twist ahead that no one will have expected.

The truth that runs through the past and the present: What is the identity of the invisible hand?

The six bodies found in the ecological park brought to the surface the presence of an enormous power trying to cover up the truth. In the past, the same person threatened Han Tae Joo to prevent the re-investigation of Kim Jae Myung and cut the thumb of police officer Park Si Young (Park Ji Hoon) in the same way.

Signs of the unseen hands that hid the murders of big-name criminals by taking control of their businesses and brutally killing corruption prosecutor Lee Dong Yoon (played by Chae Dong Hyun) and black-market organ broker Kim Jang Il (Park Sung Il) have begun to appear.

More and more questions regarding the criminal’s objective and motivations are being raised as the case is delved into further. Lee Dong Yoon was ordered by his superiors to reduce and cover up Han Tae Joo’s case to the crime of a petty criminal, while Kim Young Goon witnessed that the gun the criminal used to kill Mr. Kim belonged to the police. This suggests that there is a huge behind-the-scenes plot involving the prosecution and the police. On top of that, the police leadership’s interest in Moo Il Group’s bribery ledgers are suspicious.

With the death of Kim Jae Myung that is in line with the criminal’s goal of “cleaning up all of the human mess and creating a new base,” the truth-tracking is back to square one. The investigation team will come together to find out the truth behind the culprit.

With deepening doubts, suspicions, and a fog of truth and lies, what’s the course of the investigation team?

The corruption investigation team is facing a critical crisis due to the death of Kim Jae Myung. Kim Young Goon and Han Tae Joo are being shaken and becoming more suspicious of Do Chi Kwang. Do Chi Kwang, who is trying to catch bad cops, is revealing his Janus-like two faces, throwing even viewers into confusion. The investigation by the corruption investigation team is expected to spill into more unpredictable confusion. In a fog of truth and falsehood, what steps will the corruption investigation team take in order to find the complete truth?

Watcher: Episodes 1-8 (Review)

by Saya

watcher_01.jpg

OCN’s currently airing weekend thriller sees Han Seok-kyu’s return to the small screen for the first time since 2016’s Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, and I can tell you it is well worth the wait, especially if Forest of Secrets was your cup of tea. (And duh, OF COURSE they have the same director, Ahn Gil-ho—no wonder they remind me so much of each other!) Layered to high heaven, the show is spectacularly detailed, and the current of unease that runs through it from its very opening moments only intensifies as it goes on. It’s very cerebral, but there’s no shortage of action.

Each week, my mind is a little more blown by the questions, ambiguities and impossibilities I’m left to nurse, all with my brain running at a hundred miles an hour—and still way behind. That makes this review somewhat daunting to write, as this show is far cleverer than I am. Can I really do it justice in this limited space? But if you have ever loved a dense, complex, richly characterized thriller, you can’t not watch this (though it might be a show best marathoned). It’s the rare show for me where I relish rewatching episodes, and the second watch reveals a whole new layer to the show that would otherwise have passed me by. There are any number of words to apply to this show, but “simple” would never be one of them.
