Not really ready to say goodbye to this drama.

Please, KdramaGod! More shows with this kind of writing.

I am praying to KdramaGods that Seungwoo wins baeksang again and we get this speech.

Can we stop loving them even behind the scenes?

We all want this series to continue. Cho Seung Woo is thinking just like us. Season 5 will be a great idea. :D First step is season 3.

 

I will miss this duo as well. I loved their relationship in this season.

I hope the subs for the final episode will come out as quickly as it did yesterday. I initially thought there might be a pace problem towards the end, but it has been great so far. I mean, SDJ was in captivity for about a week? No more than 2 weeks logically.

 

So, the weird observation of SDJ's wife is mere red herring?

 

LYJ is fast becoming a favourite character too. I hope she will still appear in S3 if we come to that. We haven't dig up enough about her this season. I think deep down she was really affected by her husband's death and secrets.

 I am still waiting on E16 to come out on my local Netflix. E14 came out really quickly last weekend.

 

I would really love to see WTH's downfall. The way he behaved when cornered was just disgraceful. He scrambled to save himself in any way possible, even if it meant dragging other people into the mud.

 

CB i believed has some redeeming features. She was dragged in, yes by her own ambition and by her own choice. But she owned up to it in front of YJ when confronted. 

 

I loved seeing how SM silently worried about YJ. You could tell it from the way he was silently observing her, from the interrogation scene with ex intelligence bureau director and the face off with WTH. Not so much for himself, coz i believe he would have no qualms pressing forward even if he were to be penalised. But he gently reminded YJ that WTH meant what he said and she could definitely get convicted by the end of this all. 

 

BDN was gold in this ep! I could feel her disappointment with CB. Someone you could tell she really looked up too. Someone she respected enough to change herself to meet CB's expectations.

Definitely Season 3 is needed, I would like to know what SDJ's answer is.  Another awesome  season. 

 

 

 

I was definitely in awed when they showed the scene of HSM's dream.  It was full of meanings to be interpreted.  Glad to see HSM's smile at the end and everything will be okay for HYJ till another season.

Loved that Yeo Jin decided to meet Yoon after hearing out ShiMok's dream that he, LCJ and Eunsoo disappeared together. I loved how she gave him a reason to live on and said that she would meet him. 

My weekends would be boring now. Also it would take time to move on from this drama.

Hwang Si Mok smiled... :wub:

Love the evolution of HSM's character in season 2..

Love how he tries to convince CB to save HYJ... 

Seems the issue with Hanjo is left unresolved.. 

 

So in conclusion... There is definitely a season 3 in the offing...:highonflowers:

 

Seo Dong Jae.. You better not collude with Hanjo... 

And so excited to see Kim Won Hae as the chief.. 

:exercice:

Satisfied with the ending.. No extra melodrama... So realistic...

Ok... So what do you think Seo said fegarding Hanjo and Park Gwangsu?  Did he change for the better?

 

As for Kang's lecture to miss Lee, it's unlikely that Hanjo changes/will change for the better... Things like this do not change easily.  Even if Lee chang Jun died for thr truth, but it seems to be still same old same old

 

Lots of cliffhangers!

 

 

Season 3 please!!!

Aaaaaghh... I love the ending!! 
But seriously, I need more episodes! Things happen to fast. :blink:

Despite there are still too many things that's need more explanations (like what happened to CB after she resigned, what's the progress with the reformation law now that it's disbanded - who has the more power? - it's the theme of the drama after all, so many questions!), this episode is tying up everything nicely. Almost everybody from S1 is back and had their stories, which is very very nice. 

 

HSM's dream is a bit cheesy :sweatingbullets: (all white with mellow song and in slow motion)  but it has a deep meaning and only HYJ who can interpret the dream. As expected, she's the heart of the team - she probably guessed that Yoon Se Won doesn't have the will to live anymore. Her telling him that it was Kyung Wan (!) that sent the package shows her compassion and it gives him a purpose of living. And I like her quote here - "You made a wrong decision but I don't think that defines who you are". 

In a way, this is also telling herself that CB made a bad decision, but that does not make CB a bad person. 

 

I was a bit frustrated by the end of the episode, knowing that HYJ is still facing bullying in her workplace, but I'm glad that the new chief shows respect and trust to HYJ. it seems that CB still protects her hoobae after all. 

 

LYJ surprises me though. I thought she would follow LCJ's wish - but I guess given her position, she chose to fight off her brother. Is this for the good fo Hanjo or pure animosity against her brother / father? No idea. In the end we didn't get to see LSJ after all. 

Buut.. I like seeing her with Mr Park. They make a great pair! 


It's hard to tell whether SDJ has truly redeemed himself after all the experiences he had been through.

If I have to guess what SDJ said in the interview, he'd probably go round and round, going nowhere, seems like answering questions but not actually answering. Typical SDJ?

 

HSM - HYJ: Best partner, best friend, best companion. :wub:

I guess love doesn't require being physical. We can say that they love and care deeply about each other. I love how HSM can understand HYJ's mind and heart - "she opens up to others easily but does not blindly trust or respect just about anybody". And I love how HYJ taking care of HSM (ahem.. with the extra cabbage :rolleyes:). I don't want this partnership to end!! :( :wacko: :tears: 

 

Oh, Wonju to Seoul is only 88 km and 1 hour drive, so hopefully our duo still continues seeing each other!

Yeah, but i think that scene has it's own significance. When LCJ stopped Dong jae from coming there and glanced at shimok to which he nodded, to me it meant as if their role is still not over. They have to play their part before joining them.

HSM has grown so much. From not trusting anyone to trusting Jung Minha with segok case. From "Don't give me gifts" to "Don't you draw". From not noticing anything about anyone to "it's just like the first time we met". He is willing to be open with other people as well. Apart from HYJ, his earlier assistant gets to see him smile.

Yeah rightly said. This show gives up hope that as long as we don't give up there will always be salvation.

Okay I will progress  it little  by little 

 

Let me first talking about YJ  future  I felt bad she can't go back to where she fell belong any more , she cant go back to work on cases and investigate  with her team 

She was send to another place where everyone already  hate her, she was sad and lonely 

And even felt  sad that SM  has to leave 

 

But again they remind  us that she will he okay, she has her old team still looking after her as family  members, she has chief  Choi still help her properly  talking nice and ask the new chief  to take care of her ( did you see all her coworkers faces when the new chief  was nice to her and friendly  , dare to bully  her now ) 

 

And she still has SM  her life long partner  , who he really care and understands  her ( his scenes  with Choi prove how much he know, trust, admire and care for her and it show how he trust her views and judgment  on people, moreover  show how much he looking at every  little  details  of her feeling) 

 

I like  he ask her if there any chance she will be not okay , she has him and he has her they may be apart  for some time but they are a soul mate , it enough that  they know they here in the world and here for each other  

 

 

SM change a lot too and they have that progress  between  them , he even wait for her to order food , didnt say it weird, like that he hair was just like when they meet, was comfortable  seeing her back to her usual friendly  and not manner  behavior ( okay the man really trying  for once to be the one who offer drink or cut the food  for her but she so fast that he just had to give up:joy: )   

 I like how he even talk to her about his dream that so personally specially  with SM who rarely  share feeling  he could just answer" yes " and move on 

 

But he talk about his dream cause he want to, he progress  his confused  feeling while  talking with YJ ( he aware of it too now), and she understand  the meaning  of his dream that he himself  didnt understand ( that it mirror  his feeling about them) he was also worry about the prosecutor  in jail and YJ just understand  that and just said she will take care of it ( and she did) 

 

 

 

 

Okay it a long post already  and I still didnt even start talking about all my thoughts  and feeling but as I  said  I will progress  it slowly  and little  by little  so i will make another post  about the other  characters later  I need to wrote about SM  himself, I need to talk about the feeling between  hell and heaven  I am having right now 

 

Why ?  This drama doing that to me ?? Dear writer  I am having fear to watch you or future  dramas  you getting into me so much

AHHHHHHHHHH EP 16 BEEN SERVING US SOME REAL THROWBACK!!! 

 

Spoiler

FINALLY SAW YOUNG EUN-SOO, LEE CHANG-JOON, PROSECUTOR YOON AND KIM HO-SUB AGAIN!


I literally laughed when Hwang Si-mok tried to set the spoon on the table. It was so funny seeing him learning normal things. :joy:

 

Spoiler

And ohh, I love how Han Yeo-jin went to Mr. Yoon right away in order to stop his possible suicide. It was so sad yet the care and empathy of HYJ for his former colleague is so admirable. 


 

Spoiler

AND FINALLY, OUR FAVORITE WEASEL IS BACK!!! I FINALLY GET TO SEE HIS LOVELY SMIRK AGAIN. :love:


SDJ’s wife is so pretty though. 
 

I feel like there are still alot of questions unanswered in this season for me. I feel like it was a rushed ending (though idk for others). Ep 14 was still one of the best episodes ever, it’s like the climax of the story. 
 

I’m not satisfied with the ending (because I think I expected way better than this) but then this series is supposed to be a “multi-season” so I am expecting another season, okay??? *I’m watching you, writernim. :naughty:*
 

Finally!! HSM has learned how to smile. That was one of the sexiest smiles he ever gave. :love::relaxed:

The only take i got from this episode is the story has not ended. Looking forward to S3.

 

When that happens we will see SDJ again too. And probably WTH will still be around in a different role. There's still that slimy Deputy Prosecutor something to take down and god knows who else!

 

I'm liking it that LYJ is pulled into a deeper shade of grey. One can see how she was affected by Chief Kang's words. I like this build up. I think the best 'love story' for FoS is the one between LCJ and LYJ.

 

I am sooooo gonna miss the ending overture!!!

I loved that scene so much where Shimok says if he can sell the investigation rights that prosecution has maintained for over 70 years, then that means it was put up for sale already. Prosecution has really misused and abused their authority. I read in news that police has been given rights to close criminal cases without sending them to Prosecution but for warrant they still have to go through prosecution. Also, prosecution can ask for a case to be reinvestigated if they see any wrongdoings. The bill got passed in Jan 2020.

 

Link for that:

So yeah what Shimok initially came up as a solution to reform the laws were enacted in real.

In terms of cases yeah I would agree. Again when I think about it, we usually do not get all the answers in reality. WTH is the one who planted the fake witness and everything but he denied till the end. I am happy that he did not get any room for redemption as HSM said he is too habituated to justify his actions. I am too lingering on that hope that there would be a S3, since we did not get to see Hanjo's connection to that gathering where PGS died. Or it could be that, Hanjo did not want it's name to be dragged on another case since recruiting ex public officials is violation of some law (i dont remember the law, it was something like the ex public officials cannot work for a corporation atleast for 3 years after they leave public service)

 

Edit: Also the cases from which Lee Soo Yeon based this season were all closed without any proper conclusion/closure. So it could be that she wanted to keep it realistic. I would add the links of the cases once I find them. I read those some days ago.

I think now that YJ  herself  choose to not going back,  be logical  thinking if she asked for it they where going to send her back

why they need this trouble  maker in the HQ  she more danger there then in sending her back to local  station  and making sure she never get promoting  again  

 

 

She can stay  cause Choi make  sure not harm and ask for the people  who she trust  to be protected her,  but she if she asked she will be sending  out without  questioning  ( legally  she was still being to the station  it easy to send her back then letting her stay) 

 

But why I think she the one that choice  to stay even when she really  want to go back cause her conversation  with SM 

 

YJ: I wounder if a good boss will come while I am out catching bad guys ? ( she was woundering  if she go to do what she like then  who going to keep  eyes on what happen  there ) 

 

SM :  why you talking like it the two matters connected  ( he understand  she was referring to her choice of staying or leaving  )

 

 

YJ  choice to do what SM said back then in the rooftop scene , there should be people  who keep the eyes on the lines and I think YJ  chooses  to stay and be that person rather than do what more fit her and she will be comfortable  with ( she take the responsibility  )

I loved the ending. I really do. I was so emotional during the last episodes, watching the characters I liked.

 

First, when Yeo Jin had a hard time at her work as everyone was blaming her for Choi Bit resignation she received a call from Jang Gun. Her old colleagues were invited her to dinner and she was so emotional knowing that they still cared for her. They were a family and they still think of her well being. They even thought she will come back to them. I also liked that the new boss welcome her and Choi Bit talked well about her. I understand well? They will work together? It will be awesome if it was true. I thought she will go to Wanju, where Shi Mok worked. :D

Shi Mok talked with Choi Bit and asked her to do the right thing to protect Yeo Jin. He was right, Yeo Jin doesn`t like anyone. She really conneted with her, she respected Choi Bit as a profesional woman and it was mutual.

I loved the arc story here for both of them. I am glad that Choi Bit had the oportunity to do the right thing. She was the only one who could bring down Woo tae Ha.

The nerve of Woo Tae Ha asking her "Why should I take the fall?". Because, you moron, it was your fault. You wanted power and had bigger ambitious, you want to make connections but could not have the courage to admit your own faults. Coward!

 Shi Mok called this time Yeo Jin to have dinner because he wanted to say goodbye as he went to his new job, a new relocation. I liked when she asked her if she will be OK. "Is there a chance you won`t be OK?" he asked. That`s a progress. He became more aware of other`s feelings and he is involving more in the relationship.

Shi Mok`s dream. I was emotional again. Nice to see the old team together. She thought it will be like a premonition and visited Yoon in the prison. She thought he needed comfort a little. It made me emotional again for Yoon. It is nice that we finally know who sent that parcel to him and it was nice that Yeo Jin found out for him. I like how she told him that he made the wrong decision then but that doesn`t define who he is. She even promised to visit him again.

I liked that Kang Won-Cheol did not became Hanjo puppet. But he did not resign only because of that. He took responsability for the decision to end that investigation who had bad consequences. He even asked Lee Yeon Jae to let Dong Jae and Shi Mok alone. He tried to make Yeon Jae realised that she is taking the same bad route as her predecesors. When she asked Director Park to find out who is the prosecutor in charge it did not gave me a good impression. Habits are hard to chance and the power corupts.

I am glad that Dong Jae is OK and I am curious what he said but that could be another story.

 

And Shi  Mok did not forget Stg Song `s case. He sent to the young prosecutor the file to investigate further.

How better ending than to see Shi Mok smiling. He even have a  "friend"/ familiar face there (so too speak).

 

I REALLY WANT SEASON 3!

Loved your points here. Would like to add that Kang was right when he said that LCJ's mistake was to meet LYJ. 

As for Dong Jae, I am sure he has answered a question with a question but not an answer :D

Me too I want to see how much our beloved characters can grow. Good to see KSH wanted Shimok to be different than others.
