With the addition of time to the list of everything going against Yeong-joo's efforts in"Whisper", our heroine is stuck in limbo as our antagonists play their little games. Il-hwan wants to cut Yoo-taek off from Taebaek, but his frienemy has quite the hefty request in return. Meanwhile Jeong-il and Soo-yeon are trapped between their families and rely on a very important document, which becomes an item currently desired by all.
There is a slight development happening in this episode with characters mostly left blank so far. It is not much, but I will take what I can get in a series I find lacking. Yeong-joo's (Lee Bo-young) parents have their moments and I love the line about believing in justice and a fair world being a superstition. It is a very real, very gut-wrenching thing to hear from someone who has lost all hope in the systems which are supposed to protect them.
