[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Lookout” Episodes 9 and 10

Do-han has a lot to take care of in this pair of episodes of "Lookout". Soo-ji's headstrong influence is powerful enough to convince even the skeptical Bo-mi that what's right needs to be done. This pits our justice fighters directly against Chief Prosecutor Yoon who is wily enough to be a worthy opponent.

Do-han manipulated Chief Oh who is discarded by Chief Prosecutor Yoon with very little fanfare. Yoon covered up all of Oh's wrongdoing, a show of his power. Now Do-han is taken in by Yoon who believes Do-han's vows of loyalty. This new role has Do-han working hard to maintain his smarmy persona as well as his role as Leader. Until now, we've understood his motivations, but he's been hard to like. But when we see him tearfully empathize with Soo-jin in secret, he becomes a human; a very, very fallible human. My hope is that he will reveal himself to the justice fighters and that they will all actively work together. It would be good for him to have people on which he can rely.

[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Radiant Office” Episode 11

The gumption that Ho-won found when she thought she was terminally ill continues to show itself, protecting her from the twisted workings of selfish people at the work place. That quality earns her the respect of Woo-jin, her friends, and most of her co-workers. In Korean society her behavior is unusual and I'm proud of her despite the fact that she's a fictional character. We need women like her standing up for women's rights, company worker rights, and people's rights in general.

Ho-won's outspoken nature wins her the admiration and respect of her boss, Woo-jin. He admires her honestly and her ability to learn from her mistakes. His strengths in talking straight don't earn him friends on the management level, but Ho-won very much respects not having to read into everything he says. The two have a mutual understanding of one another, and it's a beautiful start to a slow blooming romance. Woo-jin's understanding goes farther than his romantic interest -- he also takes care of Gi-taek and Kang-ho, two hard working young men. He works with integrity unlike many of the people in the company. His fellow manager, Park Sang-man, sucks up to earn points with the higher ups and just as quickly betrays to ensure his place in the company power rankings. He drags Jo Seok-kyeong, the hard-working female team lead, into his antics because he convinces her there is no other way for her to move up than to work in shady dealings. It is sad because her strength early on was her key point. But it is reflective of what women have to do to stay in the game in a money, power, and male driven society.
