Cafe Minamdang: Episodes 15-16

by meryl

Cafe1516-87.jpg

In contrast to last week’s progress, the penultimate week sees the real culprit running circles around our heroes. It seems things can only get worse before they get better — especially for our beloved shaman and the Minamdang crew.

 

EPISODES 15-16 WEECAP

 

As Han-jun and Su-cheol hurl accusations, the cartel panics over the reporters’ presence at the ceremony. They try to get their private guards to stop the shaman, but our dynamic duo ultimately wins the scuffle just before Hye-jun plays the incriminating videos of the cartel members, who are then literally trapped under a fishing net. Oof.

Even Seung-won gets apprehended by his own brother. But despite getting cuffed to a metal post, Auntie Im successfully escapes amid all the chaos.

 

As they’re interrogated, each cartel member is unable to do anything due to the strong evidence against them. Still, everyone’s covering up for their ringleader. The police also can’t get anything out of Seung-won and his lawyers, because he’s blaming everything on Auntie Im, so he walks away scot-free.

Just before Seung-won leaves, Do-won encourages him to confess. The younger brother even threatens to use his company shares to stop his older brother from becoming chairman and to uncover the truth from their childhood, making Seung-won seethe silently.

 

At Han-jun’s shaman lair, Min-gyeong and Director Park thank the profiler for his help. But to Han-jun’s disappointment, the thanks come not in the form of much-anticipated wads of cash, but a QR code leading to a fanclub poster. Did they really start a fanclub? LOL.

 

He’s distracted when he hears Hye-jun and Su-cheol kiss. He accuses the new couple of secretly dating, but because his visitors don’t know he’s talking to his sister, Min-gyeong and Director Park accidentally out themselves as a couple, even if Min-gyeong denies it. These two are so cute — hilarious, too!

In his office, Seung-won tries to take control of the situation. But after learning Auntie Im has hidden away his ill-gotten wealth and the company shareholders now have doubts about electing him as chairman, he decides to get back at Han-jun. Oh no. This does not sound good.

 

At Minamdang, Han-jun and Na-dan find Hye-jun’s room ransacked and Hye-jun herself hanging from the ceiling… Except it’s just a mannequin planted by the bad guys. Damn, my heart nearly stopped.

Apparently, Hye-jun and Su-cheol have been out on a date. The still-hysterical Han-jun and Na-dan hug them tightly out of relief. After learning the reason behind their hysteria, Hye-jun waves their worries away, but an uncharacteristically serious Su-cheol imagines the what-ifs, nearly confessing their secret relationship until his girlfriend punches him.

But Han-jun being Han-jun, he already knows about their relationship. He simply insists Hye-jun should wash her hair as she promised and gives them a list of rules that only allows kissing and nothing further. But they do officially receive his blessing. Yay.

 

Do-won arrives at the cafe with more information. Apparently, Seung-won murdered a classmate named HYUN-WOO just before entering college, forcing him to flee abroad. But the murder was ruled as a suicide.

To reopen the case, they plan to use a combination of Han-jun’s profiling expertise and Do-won’s childhood memories. Not sure if that’s possible… Isn’t this another moment when you need a forensic hypnotist, not a profiler? Heo Jung-min, where are you?

Regardless, the trio heads to Do-won’s mansion-like childhood home (which makes the money-loving Han-jun link arms and get chummy with Do-won, LOL). But after attempting to recall his memories, Do-won ultimately fails, which Han-jun believes is due to trauma.

 

Meanwhile, the police team investigates the location of the cartel’s sex videos. While the hotel has no CCTVs, they find a lead in the drone of a celebrity’s sasaeng. And it turns out this celebrity looks like Detective Na, so the sasaeng surrenders the footage after he sweet-talks her. LOL. The footage has captured the faces of Auntie Im and Assistant Gu, covering up a cartel member’s murder. Solid evidence acquired!

The next day, Do-won goes to Cafe Minamdang with a new possible witness: HONG MYEONG-SU (Ki Hwan), Seung-won’s high school friend who was present the night of Hyun-woo’s murder. Han-jun puts on his shaman act, getting “possessed” by the victim’s spirit and reenacting how he died.

Overcome with guilt, Myeong-su admits Seung-won’s father forced him to keep quiet. He doesn’t remember exactly if Seung-won choked Hyun-woo to death, but he does recall that he and Seung-won were heading to the club before they bumped into Seung-won’s tutor, who he apparently beat up.

Elsewhere, Hye-jun and Na-dan, in cute mascot outfits, are handing out flyers. It’s a distraction to allow Su-cheol to plant a bug in Seung-won’s car. Through the bug, they tail Seung-won to a location, thinking he’s meeting Auntie Im, but as it turns out, it’s his psychiatrist JUNG HYE-YOON (Woo Jung-won).

Tracking her down, Han-jun and Jae-hui ask her about Seung-won’s childhood murder case. The psychiatrist initially keeps calm, but becomes rattled after hearing it’s related to a more recent murder case. With this revelation, a nervous Hye-yoon goes to her office to check her records.
