[Drama 2020/2021] Get Revenge, 복수해라

Recommended Posts

I am just starting to watch Ep. 3. But early in the episode's start, we saw Cha Mi Yeon who fled after seeing men waiting for her and managed to call her younger brother, Cha Min Joon. But she was dragged away by the men who chased her, while Min Joon saw Kang Hae Ra reporting that Cha Mi Yeon, according to an unknown entertainment CEO, was involved in a sponsor prostitution scandal, and received 10M won every time she visited a certain facility.

 

So I am thinking this is a tangled web story. Kang He Ra was there when the house were Mi Yeon was staying was burning and Eun Hye's (private detective) father was holding a baby. Who was that baby? Then she reported the story of the alleged involvement of Mi Yeon in a sponsor prostitution scandal.

 

Maybe Min Joon bought all of He Ra's books to give her a sense of stability, to make her feel special and famous. But there was a scene where a smirk showed in Min Joon's face. Burning all those books is a premonition, that he's setting He Ra up to something - his own revenge. Remember that he's still searching for his sister, Mi Yeon.

 

Regarding the FL being bland, I think it's due to her face. She's got a naturally sad face, and there are times when her smile does not reach her eyes. Compared to the actress Yoon So Yi, playing the role of private eye Goo Eun Hye who has a bubbly personality, and her face is a happy face, whose eyes reflect her smiles.

I was done with EP 3 and 4 and had some time to spare so I re-watched EP 1 and 2. The relationship between all the characters is like a very messily tangled web.

 

Kang Hae Ra

Spoiler

Came from a very humble background, a high-school graduate who became a reporter focused on entertainment news. During this time, she met Gu Eun Hye while stalking celebrities on date and most probably when she reported the news about Cha Mi Hyeon. She had long hair during this time. If Hae Ra known Mi Hyeon before, this timeline might be the first time she had contact/befriended with Mi Hyeon. 

 

Then, it was told she put her career down when she got married during the book fansign. When she was pregnant, she had short hair. It was shown she saved Cha Mi Hyeon from the burning warehouse when she had short hair and the injury on her lips matched with one she had when she gave birth to the stillborn baby. During that time too, it was shown that Gu appa was there with a baby. All this happened approximately 12 years ago since Ga On is around that age. 

 

While I don't have any idea how she end up at the burning warehouse, but I have a feeling that the baby carried by Gu appa is the one she raises as Ga On. I feel like she contacted Gu appa because she needs to adopt a baby and with her celebrity status, she tried to hire people to do it quietly. I don't think she and Gu appa have a close personal relationship because the way she saved Gu appa number is too formal-like. 

 

Cha Mi Hyeon

Spoiler

Cha Mi Hyeon is definitely a victim of slander and she hold a very important information. That is why she was being chased by the tattoo man. Someone tried to kill her by locking her inside a burning warehouse. However, the burning warehouse scene differ with the scene where she was being chased by the tattoo man. She was wearing different dresses for both scenes. 

 

It was mentioned that the chasing scene happened in Gunsan, and the reporter Min Joon paid also said that he saw someone resembled Mi Hyeon at Gunsan with an approximately 12 year kid with her. 

 

My assumption is, they tried to kill her, but Kang Hae Ra saved her instead and then she moved elsewhere. But tattoo man found her and that is when she went missing until now. Other than that, considering that Hae Ra met Mi Hyeon before, I thought she left Ga On under Mi Hyeon care but since it was shown Hae Ra indeed transferred money to Ga On in CAD, Ga On is definitely out of the country. 

 

Cha Min Joon

Spoiler

Alright.. Right now I feel like he is the one that is the most confusing among all.

 

What really obvious is he is currently on a mission to find his missing sister and seek revenge for what happened to his sister. That is why Kang Hae Ra is on his radar because she reported the news about Mi Hyeon. While he knows about Hae Ra humble background but it seems like he doesn't know the relationship between Hae Ra's ex-husband and Kim Tae On. He also did not know about Ga On not being Hae Ra's son until he sensed that there is something more about Hoon Seok dispute with Hae Ra involving their son. He also shown that at times he genuinely wondered how Hae Ra lived her life. 

 

My guess is, he wants to elevate Hae Ra status so that she can do the digging needed for him to figure out what happened to Mi Hyeon and Hae Ra background as entertainment reporter gives better ground for him to work on. While he has hatred towards Hae Ra but I think it mostly because Hae Ra reported the news, not exactly because he knows the possible relationship between Hae Ra and Mi Hyeon. Based on his conversation with his assistant, he intends to use Hae Ra to obtain information and bring down the people who wronged his sister and not really about extracting information from her about her relationship with his sister. 

 

Compared to Hae Ra, he is definitely more onto Kim Sang Goo. I think that he approached Chairman Song because he needs information about Kim Sang Goo. If he is onto Kim Tae On, he should have known about Kim Tae On and Lee Hoon Seok's relationship but there was instance showed that he doesn't has any information about that prior to Hae Ra's broadcast. 

 

However, it is mostly just assumption because there is definitely a lot going on for him that hasn't been revealed yet.

 

Lee Hoon Seok

Spoiler

He is definitely a character I love to hate gladly. He is too despicable beyond words. On top of being domestic abuser, he is also a druggie. How he managed to keep everything under wrapped is definitely mind-boggling. His media play game is definitely on another level. I mean, he abuses Hae Ra for more than 12 years, she also went to get treatment at the hospital occasionally but no one exposed him? At all? He even coined as the most loved entertainer. Like what? Now I can't wait to watch his indefinite downfall since Kim Tae On absolutely on her way to abandon him.  

 

 

I can't wait to watch how the story unfold and the messy web untangled with every revelation. The plot is still interesting for me to follow that I can ignore how stiff Kim Sa Rang is. While I can see she is trying, but she felt short in comparison with Yoon So Yi and Yoon Hyun Min. Her facial expression doesn't change much despite the situation she is in and that took away my attention on some of the intense emotional scenes. And that perfect skin and perfect hair on every single situation got to go. How can I believe she is in despair if her appearance especially her face looks so perfect?:crazymad:

I agree with you @kdramagrandma, Kim Sa Rang looks bland compared to the private eye, because she has limited facial expressions. She's one of those so-called actresses with stiff-as-a-board look. Looking at her body of work so far, she's been like that ever since. I've seen her in Secret Garden and she was as stiff then as she is now. And maybe her ''no single strand of hair out of place'' look is a throwback to her Miss Korea days when the candidates have to look immaculate and neat.

 

From the recent episode, it seems that Cha Min Joon will continue to defend crooks because he is a lawyer. But on the side, he will use the information he has on his clients to avenge the wrongs they did to the victims, using Kang Hae Ra and Goo Eun Hye. The two women can gather all the hard evidence they need to expose those wolves in sheep's clothing, so to speak.

 

There is still the question of who sent the message to Hae Ra that led her to go to the private detective agency? Was it really Eun Hye's dad?

I believed so because she saved the number as Gusan Agency Gu-Sajangnim(Boss). I think he messaged her to contact him but since she knows about the agency, she went straight to the office and met Eun Hye instead. He might thought that Hae Ra will call or message him first. So, the meeting between Hae Ra and Eun Hye was a coincidence.

@reddragon @kdramagrandma I get what you're saying about the actress but even a stoic character has facial expressions.  I think a lead role for her was ambitious. Or maybe they thought looks would trump depth. You should be able to still feel a fire in her even when playing it cool.  Did anybody think it was weird that they cut away from the scene so completely where she hit him with the golf club? I got a sense she couldn't even sell that. The way it went to black, then him at the door bloody.  I'm trying hard not to see the glaring difference in the level of performance. Not trying to me rude but I have to keep from falling asleep when she's on and speaking. I'll continue to give it time though.

Hahaha, you noticed it too, @brooksmom, the skirt of the SL is too short. Although she's got a nice pair of legs, I, too, find it way too short. I think it would be better if the skirt is around four inches above her knees, since the hem will still move up when she sits. In one scene where she was wearing that white top and skirt ensemble, the hem is almost to the curve of her butt.

 

The story is getting more interesting and intriguing, even if it is a tangled web.

Hi All! 
Nice to see friends in this forum. I stumbled upon this drama as I like Yoon Hyun Min. Though his last drama character was meh.

 

I agree with everyone that the detective is so far OUTSHINING Ki Sa Rang's character by far.

 

There are al ot of twists and turns and it is so far interesting enough to hold my interest after watching `1-4 in one sitting

 

The Ex hubby/top beloved announcer/ druggie/ abuser is HORRIFIC. Dang I was happy when he was exposed. But to see it short lived. I hope that the rich lover DUMPS him. He is a train wreck waiting to happen.

 

Yes YHM character is more than meets the eye. We know revenge and I too at first thought he had a crush on the FL to buy all the books. Also after winning the court case for the really horrible foundation head to go see our FL. I thought oh he is crushing on her. But later we saw he was burning the books, then it was like confusion. 

 

The detective second female is awesome. I liked how the someone wrote she smiles and it reaches her eyes. With the FL (though gorgeous) it doesn't reach her eyes. I agree she TRIES but her acting efforts are blown away by everyone else.

 

Still will follow this drama for now.

I did fall asleep halfway into ep4. And I probably would have dropped this drama but I watched the rest of it and I was glad I did cause it got interesting.

So, who else feels sorry for that pervert’s pregnant daughter? She will have no money after he is through paying restitution, and her baby daddy and his family want nothing to do with her and she was clearly just a one-night stand to the that fellow. And she seems to be just a sweet girl who is stuck in a mess with a creep dad and creep baby daddy!

Is it trendy for a mid forty-ish rich woman to wear really short skirts?  

Maybe?:joy:

Have seen Episodes 3 and 4 now. For the majority part it was lukewarm, albeit Episode 4 ending of course went with a bang. 

 

Good. I was getting tired of just hearing her breathe heavily in her scenes and not much else. Perhaps it is the way her eyes are sad indeed. She looks beautiful (hadn't seen her before), but now in this role I can only imagine her as rather timid human. 

 

In any case,  it's sort of astounding that the rich woman, a career woman, seems to falls for Hera's husband. Since she didn't abandon him, despite his reputation being in tatters, although not completely, since he knows how to weasel himself out of the worst. The way Hera tried to confront him... was just unwise. Of couse you could argue, since this is about her son, the rage blinds her.

Thanks! I was looking forward to the OST. The music is nicely used in the drama and I'm a sucker for background music. I'm reminded to check out the other songs, and this one is my current fave:

The director keeps focusing on Hae Ra's (Kim Sa Rang) face but it is difficult to empathize with her because she always display a blank face. She can cry, as seen when she visited the cemetery, but any other emotion, she fails to emote. She does not show fear, confusion, surprise, sympathy or anything else as her facial muscles simply fail to move. It is not enough to open your eyes wide and now them every now and them. You don't even know if she's confused or afraid in the face of danger. Simply put, it's difficult for her to act. Just another pretty face, a beauty queen turned actress. in my opinion.

 

In playing her character, she's often indecisive although she has bouts of boldness. However, it would be good if she can take some lessons in self defense. She's such a weakling and she's always wearing those ridiculous stiletto heels that make it difficult for her to walk or run. 

 

Did she deny the fact that she received financial help from Cha Mi Yeon in the past when her mother was hospitalized and Mi Yeon recommended her for the job at the broadcasting station? Was she exacting revenge on Mi Yeon because the job caused her to be raped by the RickRoll'D bag celebrity, Lee Hoon Seok, who became her husband (ex-husband now)?

Is anyone else confused how Haera’s phone was recording the auction or the police were called in time or how it was all planned?

 

I'm wondering how the lady chaebol is going to get rid of useless boyfriend, aka Haera’s ex. They seem to be at stalemate, but we know that lady chaebol can torture and beat up people too. So, shouldn’t she be able to take that creep’s phone and evidence? It’s not like anyone ever keeps copies in cloud drives in these shows.

I think it was her new partner, the rookie reporter Hyun Sung who planted the phone there. He was there among those loan sharks. 

 

Hmmmm. I am feeling like dropping this but I sort of want to know the ending? As the story gets intense, Hera's lack of expression gets on my nerves now. I realized that even her body language is non-existent. I feel like looking at a wooden log. Every time I watched her getting attacked, she seems like she is just there waiting for it to happened. It is not showing that she tried to avoid or trying to save herself from the attack. Normal person would at least flinch a little. And once she falls, she stayed there for a good amount of time. Even during the scene where she entered the office already smelling the gas but did not think of turning on the lights is just what? One thing I always do when I'm entering dark room, I'll turn on the lights first. This always happened in dramaland that I tend to just ignore that perhaps there are people out there who prefer to be in the dark, but it only happen when danger is looming. Not in other scenes. Just a small pet peeves of mine. :isannoyed:

 

It is nice to watch that what people thought was Cha Mi Hyeon's deed done for goodwill, it actually was not the case for Hera. Cha Min Joon hatred towards Hera is founded because he only heard rumors but not the whole story about Hera and Cha Mi Hyeon's exchange. He is feeling that Hera is an ungrateful woman but from Hera's perspective, it was the start of her way to hell. Knowing that Hera also trying to look for Mi Hyeon, I hope that she and Min Joon will become true partner faster. I need more Min Joon to distract me from Hera's wooden acting. 

 

Talking about Min Joon, I wonder if he knows that the kid with loan shark problem is the son of the truck driver that found Mi Hyeon before. Some scenes made me think that Min Joon is like the grand master planner but at times it feels like everything that is happening is out of pure luck. What information that he has is still up in the air. 

 

Looking forward for next week episodes? Maybe. But I might abuse my fast forward button more now. :offtospace:
