HJ lost again due to his arrogance.  He isn't even aware that he's not reading the situation thoroughly.  He jumped the gun and chose the wrong client.  The old man never intended to abandon the boy to begin with.  It was a losing battle from the very beginning.  GJ is too damn sharp.  She sees people through and understands them very well.  That's how she cuts them.  And in her eyes, she only sees HJ, her object of affection.  Being her objection of affection also means HJ has to go through her beatings.  She's a bit of a S and he's the right M for her.  That's how the lady rolls, my boy HJ.

@Shinobu I agree, it was indeed a battle lost from the start. That was a tough defeat for HJ. I felt so bad when Ha Hye Won poured the champagne all over him. It seemed GJ came to him genuinely out of care and meant it when she said it hurt seeing the despair on his face, but of course, he's going to see it as her rubbing in her victory. In the preview, he seems pretty upset at her...there's no ramyeon at his place for her. This guy!

 

I got the impression that Ha Chan Ho's alcohol/substance abuse and outbursts reminded GJ of her past. They seemed familiar to her which why I think she handles him so well whereas HJ won't take it. Also, even when the chairman called her a low life (multiple times), you could see it sting her, but she still kept it cool and focused on the end game. She knows who the real low lives are. GJ is one strong woman.

Joo Ji Hoon And Kim Hye Soo’s Past Is Dragged Back To The Surface With New Client In “Hyena”

SBS’s Friday-Saturday drama “Hyena” has released new stills of Kim Hye Soo and Joo Ji Hoon having their past be brought back.

“Hyena” tells the story of cutthroat lawyers who use their knowledge of the law to pursue dreams of wealth. Jung Geum Ja (Kim Hye Soo) and Yoon Hee Jae (Joo Ji Hoon) are two lawyers who are engaging in a fierce battle with neither backing down anytime soon. They’re practically at each other’s throats whenever they meet, and it’s because of a past that is soon to be revealed.

Spoilers

Jung Geum Ja and Yoon Hee Jae had been in a relationship, but this had all been part of Jung Gum Ja’s plan. She began a fake relationship with him to get information out of him about the case they were on opposite sides of. Not knowing this, Yoon Hee Jae had loved Jung Geum Ja, until he faced her at court and finally realized what had been going on.

The upcoming episode will bring a new character who brings that past between the two lawyers to the surface. Genius violinist Ko Yi Man (Jo Dong In) was the person who brought Jung Geum Ja and Yoon Hee Jae together, and he will be the one who brings back memories of their time as a couple.

Hyena OST part 2

BAEKHYUN- On the Road

 

****

I only watched Firiday episode. I have a question. I find Song Pil Joong`s interest in Yoon Hee jae rather / strange/ unexplained. Is Hee Jae his biological son (illegitimate son)? I feel there is a personal connection between both of them.

He tends to favour YHJ a lot right?  I was under the impression it was because of his relationship with YHJ's father/ grandfather. He did mention he'd feel very bad that YHJ does badly as YHJ chose to become a lawyer and joined his firm instead of continuing the  family legacy of becoming a judge in the earlier episodes .

 Agreed here.  I feel her more difficult childhood and the fact that she's a survivor gives her the edge ( I noted  that she was helping that friend who runs the club for male escorts look for clients in her past before becoming a lawyer. :w00t:) She definitely has a better read of people and understands their desperation better. She also played her cards well...eating the breakfast in front of Issume Chairman. The old man gave her the lead on what the son's weakness really is.

 

Anyhow - JGJ  - YHJ : 2 - 1 :tounge_wink:

 It could be that Song Pil-Joong is close with Hee Jae`s family. I want to know more about Hee Jae and his family.

Funny that you mentioned the score. I thought of this also and I know that it is not very mature to think about this but I could not helped it. :w00t:

Okay a few thoughts (which I'll probably add to after watching Ep.4):

 

1)  The one percent on the show really have no iota of morals or ethics. The eldest son is a spoilt loser drug addict abusive and really one major scandal away from oblivion - but Chairman wants him to run the company and not the sane ambitious daughter. That family is full of fake people who don't give a damn about each other!

 

2) JGJ knows it and capitalizes it on more given everyone thinks she's just a classless sleazy lawyer (which she is, because of her trajectory in life). I think she made the bad judgment-call telling the mistress to go back to Chan-Ho. This will end in either the mistress killing him or Chan-Ho killing her and /or her 'real love'. But JGJ isn't in it to save the rich screwed up people who know better but do worse. And it will not end well. @taeunfighting @triplem she has zero respect for these people and it shows. She made sensible suggestion just once to each member of this family and they all disregarded it one by one. So she probably thinks they are cooking up their own hells, why should she care! 

 

3) The shadow workers and past of JGJ (the guy who gave her the phone list will come up again, and he knows JGJ enough to ask her whether she has been eating - which means JGJ is under stress / driven too much) and her background in various jobs before becoming a working lawyer.  

 

4) What happened with HJ was bad. First the company's CEO tried to punch him, then his sister poured a bottle over him - as if he deserves no dignity in their eyes as a professional. I felt bad for him especially since there was no way to predict that the spoilt rich mistress would go back to the abusive CEO for no apparent reason. And he failed to deliver for both the CEO and his sister, losing to the same woman! He was already emotionally burnt by JGJ, so for him, it's personal on some level. It stings to be a man fooled and upstaged by a woman who is not even of similar background but is playing a better game than any seasoned legal eagle. I hope he wins soon and gets a bit of that punching-pride back! Also, he is dissatisfied working for Song & Kim - so that is news. He looks like a misfit in any case. 

 

5) The law firm's head (Pil-Joong) is lenient with HJ only because he is from an influential rich family of judges (grandfather was a SC judge, father is going to SC judge, brother is a clean judge). He probably knows HJ is working for another law firm on the side, but ignoring it because HJ can be of use to him. That's my read on him. He maybe a friend of the family but business is business and he hasn't made a successful building full of lawyers by being an understanding cuddly bear. I think he'll show his colors soon.

 

6) The sparks or romance or professional back stabbing is so BDSM at this point (the real JGJ gets her rocks off by riling him up, @Shinobu  said it right). I think he mentioned 'there's no ramyeon' as a pun because she likes to drink just coffee too but faked interest in eating that breakfast in front of Chairman. Or did he cook ramyeon for her when they were dating? Which reminds me, if they were lovers, how come HJ never noticed that she was wearing a wig or extensions? Just sayin'.

 

7) Mr. Jo, JGJ's sidekick and HJ's sidekick should have their own over-worked/ over-stressed workers union! 

 

Edit: Ep. 4: Love the fact that in a room full of 20 hot shot men, in senior boardroom, enters JGJ, as part of Song & Kim! And a new pretty legal aide is probably the latest foil for the not-so-poor HJ. Sparks and Envy will collide in that file closet.

 

And loved the scene in the restaurant between JGJ and HJ - that was one honest conversation (he even guesses right that JGJ isn't her real name) and she accedes 'yes, I'm cruel.' I mean, wow, what burning layers.

 

Good show.

Hyena – K-Drama Episode 3 Recap & Review

 

Champagne Shower

With two lawyers going head to head and trading blows through underhanded tactics, Hyena lives up to its name as our two leads fight over scraps left by the other. Untangling this intricate web of deceit, back-stabbings and drama can be a little complicated at times and certainly commands your attention but both Geum-Ja and Hee-Jae are intriguing enough to keep you watching to find out what happens next. It also helps that this week’s episode steps it up a notch and delivers its strongest hour yet.

We begin episode 3 of Hyena with Geum-Ja returning to the hospital to find Hee-Jae landing a coup in securing Jung-Hwa as a client given she’s about to testify against Chan-Ho, whom Geum-Ja is currently representing. He goes on to tell her there’s a lot of different charges being stacked up against him and hands over his book, watching as she storms away, throwing his book in the trash and allowing Geum-Ja to revel in the thought of starting a war.

Chan-Ho however is not so enthused, telling Geum-Ja she needs to bring Jung-Hwa back. It’s all too much for her and as she returns home and screams to the heavens as things go from bad to worse for her. Getting her thoughts together, she decides to speak to Chairman Ha in a bid to help Chan-Ho.

Woo-Seok meets with Geum-Ja and together they head in to see the Chairman at his house. Unfortunately she’s not the first to arrive, as Hee-Jae reveals himself from the shadows with Jung-Hwa. Things inevitably become awkward as they all sit together and share a silent lunch. Geum-Ja seizes the opportunity to gorge herself on the food available before the talk turns to business at last.

In a bid to try and impress the Chairman, she suggests hiring BTS for his upcoming birthday party. Impressed, he agrees to indulge her and as Hee-Jae and Jung Hwa leave, Woo-Seok confronts her and asks just what her end-game is. She refuses to tell him though and coolly shrugs off Hee-Jae’s attempts to taunt her outside. Out of earshot, Geum-Ja turns to Woo-Seok and gives him strict instructions to pass on to the Chairman, who rings him immediately after.

@noor1 This part actually didn't sit well with me when it was played out, but I do think GJ had a point that if Chan Ho found out about the affair, Jung Hwa and the half-brother's lives would be in danger knowing how crazy Chan Ho is. So although not exactly ideal, I could see why GJ thought the better alternative was to go back to him in order survive. Hopefully, it's just temporary. About the half-brother, I wonder what Jung Hwa sees in him. I'm curious to know more what he is like and if he may become a contender in the succession battle even though he's an illegitimate son.

 

A part of me does want to believe that GJ cares to some extent. If not for her, I could see Chan Ho overdosing and/or harm Jung Hwa if they kept battling it in court. I thought she was pretty brave to tell Chan Ho to get a grip on his anger and it was his fault for locking his wife up. It is definitely not the right way to show someone you love them.

I would say the score is 2:0.  And that is not because HJ is incompetent.  He lacks real life experience possibly due to not having much of a chance to deal with variety of people across the board.  He also has no interest to lower himself to please people. 

 

In contrast, GJ mastered the art of dealing with people due to her circumstances.  She doesn't give a toss if she gets insulted or trampled on because she was partly jaded and understood that it's part of livelihood.  She pretended like she enjoyed breakfast in front of these rich folks to make a good impression while HJ flat out stated his own preference without realizing his response irked them.  HJ was completely oblivious to their body language.  I don't think what GJ did to win was that below the belt.  Comparing to her, HJ is inexperience and not at all flexible.  GJ shows him the real deal, what a dogs eat dogs world is like.  It's a wake up call for him.  

 

The 1% in here are shown as supreme a holes with poor upbringing.  Pouring wine on someone's head?  Surely money can't buy class.  It's only justice when GJ uses them the most she can.

 

My favorite part of course is little tibbits showing how GJ loves HJ.  She's attracted to him and is worried about him after she crushed him.  She checked on him right afterward to see how he was doing not to gloat but to make sure he was still ok (like how he was worried about her before her attack.)  Typical females wouldn't crush her object of affection to begin with but this is GJ we're talking about here.

 

Let's say they go steady for real after realizing they're meant for each other.  I like to see that scene where he brings her home to his "refined" family.  Before that the flirting in the office is just as exciting.  Give it to me like now.  I'm dying here.

It made me very uneasy to see the way the rich lash out on people around them, including their own children. The way they beat them almost beyond restrain was hard to watch. Same goes for Itaewon Class as well..tsk. 

     Jung Hwa(?) got the raw end of the deal. She has to stay by an abusive lover just to be able to get close to her true love!? Harsh. It's not worth it tbh. I love how Geum Ja is so resourceful & keep upstaging Hee Jae every. single. time. It's sort of satisfying although she can come across quite ruthless.

     The boss is the same one from Misty he's a dashing fella for his age eheheh. I knew by the way he looked at Geum Ja he was impressed. It'd be interesting to see how these 2 battle it out by outsmarting one another. I have to admit it gets kind of old eventually but Geum Ja is such a bad@$$ it's entertaining.

Just watched episode 4. This time, I thought Ko's case was a tough loss for GJ. Because of the abusive and controlling mother, she connected with Ko. It's true HJ's settlement offer did give him more freedom and he was content with that, but GJ wanted him to understand that he is an adult, a human being and deserves to claim 100% of his rights. He needed to free himself from his mother. Too bad HJ thought her intentions were all for greed. It's understandable why he does, but this time it was clearly not at all.

 

I thought the bar scene with their friend was hilarious at first. We learned from GJ that HJ had told her he loved her and that she was his first love :w00t: ...and he didn't deny it. Then later when they were drunk, things got more serious. It's obvious HJ loves her and is extremely hurt by her. All he wanted to know was whether she was sincere when they were dating, but no matter what, she won't let herself to admit it. Clearly her past has made her trust no one but herself so she has her guard completely up and won't let anyone in. She's protective of herself and her best defense is to push HJ away. Sigh...it's pretty frustrating to see, but I get it. I really enjoy their competition, but after this scene, I'm totally looking forward to when HJ is able to tear down her walls and she can gift the the record back to him.

 

Thinking back...now I understand why he was playing Ko's music while he was worried about her being attacked. It has a sentimental connection to him and GJ.

I hear the rich clients tell how lowlife the lawyers are but they are more lowlife than anyone else. They are the people who does horrible things and expect to get out of their responsabilities using money and then complained that the lawyers are money hungry. If they were upright people the hyena lawyers would not be around. They need them the most. So, stop complaining.

The old Chairman Ha told Geum Ja that he detest people like her the most , people with no class, lowlife, who only cares about money. WOW, he thinks that he has so much class compared to her?  She is not your family to care about your problems. When he said to her that he can easily get rid of her, like she never existed, it was a damn threat. That man should look in the mirror and self reflect.How his family got up so messed up? Ha Hye-Won is rude and rutless but how on Earth her father prefered his addicted son over her to take the business? Just because she was a woman? Unbelievable.

Geum Ja did her job to convince  Seo Jun Hwa to come back to the abusive boyfriend (for Chairman`s birthday party) but she was not heartless like Hee Jae or others thought. Thinking of the situation with a clear head, she was pragmatic. She gave her a good advice. Knowing how this people could do anything they want, including illegal things and then got scot-free, she would have end up worst. She advice her to come back and take her time to let go to both of those men. It is an impossible romance. It could bring a tragedy.  I think next time she should plan really well her escape from that family.

 Again, he really does not read Geum Ja at all. He doesn`t what makes her click. It is not his fault at this point but I expect seing them working together, to know each other better. Geum Ja empathized with Ko Yi-Man because he was abused by his mother. Oh, man, it was disturbing to see that woman hitting the employee like that in fron of all those people.

What Geum Ja wanted for him, to liberate himself from the toxic relationship, was valid but in the same time I believe that Hee-Jae negotiated a good deal for him. For now, it is hard for Ko Yi Man to be on his own completely but he has to learn how to be independent, asertive. I felt so sorry for him! When he hugged Geum Ja, she took her by surprise.

It was one of my favorite scenes. She said that she lives only for the present and he said that he is the same in the past or in the future.

It is obvious that Geum Ja suits her that he is seing her as ruthless or being angry at her. This way she protects herself. She is very guarded and the moment Hee Jae will realise that, Geum Ja becomes more vulnerable. I hope he will show maturity and not want to equal the score, by taking revenge or something. I hope he will help her open up more when it comes to their feelings, not work against her.

 

She is guarded to her coworker, Lee Ji-Eun, too. I like how Ji Eun knows her and she is genuinly happy when Geum Ja is open up more (like when she said "we", showing that she cares about their relationship). I think Geum Ja is seing her as a friend but she doesn`t like to recognise it but Ji Eun let her be. 

 

Speaking of the people on the same team as Geum Ja... The man who gave her the file wanted to know if she ate. I think they were close. I recognize the actor from SBS drama Stove League . I hope he will appear again (that was not a very short cameo).

If not, I'm sorry for loving you.

 I used to joke about the same thing. I usually watch the dramas with the worst ratings. Bad rating drama? Here I am! I am attracked to them like a fly to the light. Just a very few dramas escape the same fate. :w00t:

Hyena: Episodes 3-4 Open Thread

by missvictrix

Hyena2_7A.jpg

All’s fair in love and war? Not really, especially since our leads are operating on two totally different planes. Last week’s premiere episodes gave us a pretty solid setup of our unlikable-yet-oh-so-likeable characters, and this week it’s time for us to see what happens when they start butting heads for real. Like hyenas, right?

 

  
EPISODES 3-4 WEECAP

Hyena2_2.jpg

This is not the sort of drama I would normally seek out, but we’re only in week two and already Hyena has proven itself to be so much more than just dirty fights and unscrupulous courtroom victories. We might have those in spades thanks to our rather ruthless Geum-ja, but we also have a truckload of pathos. This drama is characters-first, and that’s what makes it so strong. And so good!

When we left off last week, Geum-ja and Hee-jae were facing off over the Issume heirs Ha Chan-ho (crazy substance abuser who’s madly in love with his mistress) and his sister Ha Hye-won (cold, icy, and desperate to inherit the business). The two choose sides, Geum-ja representing Chan-ho, and Hee-jae representing Hye-won. Hee-jae risks it all to secretly represent a client that opposes his firm, but he’s convinced he can win, what with Chan-ho’s mistress on his side.
