We’re fairly near the top right here, and “Eager for You” doesn’t let up its frenetic pacing because it enters the penultimate week. All of the villains are out within the open, so all that is still for Oh Jin Sung (Na In Woo), Go Younger Joo (Kim Ji Eun), and Cha Younger Woon (Kwon Yool) is to place them behind bars. However placing the chief of Korea’s greatest medical heart behind bars is less complicated stated than accomplished, particularly when the reality causes a sudden fracture throughout the crew.
Listed here are 4 occasions Yoo Jung Sook was outsmarted within the earlier episodes:
Warning: spoilers for episodes 11-12 beneath.
1. When Jin Sung stored calm in entrance of Jung Woo No
It’s all Jin Sung can do to stay calm after discovering out that Jung Woo No (Kim Chul Ki) killed his brother on Yoo Jung Sook’s (Bae Jong Okay’s) orders. He confronts Woo No at Jin Jin hospital, however the man shrugs him off, trying unflappable as a result of he is aware of he’s untouchable. Jin Sung is about to throw palms when he remembers Younger Joo’s recommendation. When combating in opposition to a Goliath like Jin Jin, they will’t afford to make foolish errors, so he reins himself in and lets Woo No depart.
However it seems that Woo No’s departing to satisfy Younger Woon, who’s nonetheless in shock that his half-brother was murdered as a way to give him a coronary heart. Woo No all however confirms it however firmly believes he did nothing flawed. Younger Woon bitterly notes that his mom is principally Woo No’s god, and Woo No doesn’t deny it. Younger Woon returns residence livid and confronts his household, yelling at their audacity, at their lack of morals, and at how disgusting they’re. And the worst half is that Jung Sook doesn’t flinch. She genuinely doesn’t care and tells him as a lot. She actually says that some lives are value greater than others, and Younger Woon’s life mattered greater than Jin Woo’s as a result of he’s going to do “nice issues.”
Younger Woon is at a loss on what to do. Jung Sook laughs that nobody in Korea can prosecute her. Her ties to each legislative and monetary physique are too nice for anybody to be able to touching her. Younger Woon is about to throw all of it away and prosecute her, when his gross father Cha Jin Cheol (Choi Kwang Il) exhibits up and justifies his spouse’s actions. Jin Cheol wasn’t conscious that Younger Woon acquired Jin Woo’s coronary heart however doesn’t care. He guilt journeys Younger Woon, saying that his mom has solely existed for him, his well being, profession, and happiness. He reminds Younger Woon that he’s solely alive due to his mom. And the following factor we all know, Younger Woon formally sides along with his household.
2. When Ki Younger knowledgeable Ma Ri of Jin Woo’s demise
It’s vile how Jung Sook has made a behavior out of rescuing individuals in want and forcing them to carry out all method of unsavory deeds for her. However the one that discovered greatest from her instance wasn’t Younger Woon however Park Ki Younger (Lee Kyu Han). It isn’t clear but as to how he grew to become conscious of Jung Sook’s true nature, however what is clear is that the second he knew, he put a complete lot into motion with one objective: tearing her down. Ki Younger is not at all a hero. He was totally ready to kill Younger Joo to harm Younger Woon and assisted Bae Min Kyu (Jung Sang Hoon) in his serial killings. However his premeditated actions find yourself serving to Jin Sung out as he begins the onerous battle in opposition to a medical conglomerate that owns a very good quantity of the nation.
Becoming a member of him within the battle is Younger Joo, who was shocked and heartbroken at Younger Woon’s refusal to help them and his insistence that she do nothing. However in a superb shock and little bit of character development, spoiled prosecutor Yang Hee Joo (Jung Ga Hee) rises to the event, decided to do proper with the facility she’s been given. Because the chief prosecutor’s daughter, she’s fairly untouchable, in order that’s a robust crew Jin Woo has on his facet. However Jin Jin is highly effective sufficient to get Woo No out of jail the second Jin Sung points a warrant. So he simply wants a pair extra issues.
First, Jin Sung wants Ma Ri (An Si Ha), Jin Woo’s beginning mom, to vouch that Jung Sook knew that Jin Woo and Younger Woon had been half-brothers. Subsequent, he wants video proof that Woo No killed Jin Woo on Jung Sook’s orders. Woo No’s able to sacrifice himself, however Jin Sung needs the top of the snake reduce off right here, not the tail. Jung Sook is definite that Ma Ri gained’t be a part of Jin Sung’s facet and is shocked when Ma Ri does. Jung Sook genuinely isn’t able to understanding that persons are able to something when cornered, and Ma Ri has been cornered for a very long time. Through a hidden digital camera, Ki Younger had gotten footage of Jung Sook and Woo No celebrating after Jin Woo’s homicide and Younger Woon’s surgical procedure whereas dissing Ma Ri—one have a look at the video, and Ma Ri returned to Korea with one objective: to destroy Jung Sook. Fortunately, she isn’t the one one with that objective.
3. When Jin Sung dug into Ki Younger’s previous
Digging into all of the helpful tidbits Ki Younger left them leads Jin Sung to a pal of Ki Younger’s mom. There, he finds that Ki Younger’s mom was a mannequin with a budding profession till she fell pregnant. The daddy? Cha Jin Cheol, Younger Woon’s father and Jung Sook’s husband, strikes once more. This man was simply working round dishonest and fathering youngsters all over the place. What occurred subsequent was a predictable sample. Jung Sook came upon in regards to the dishonest. She provided Ki Younger’s mom with medicine, which had been really narcotics. She turned his mom into an addict, bought her killed, and swooped in to hold Ki Younger to her place, performing like she was “saving” him and sponsoring him.
However Ki Younger discovered that she was solely holding him round so she might kill him and provides Jin Woo his coronary heart. See, Ki Younger has Hepatitis B, almost definitely because of some contact from his mom’s drug use. This made him an unsuitable candidate for Jung Sook’s valuable Younger Woon. That was what saved him. It’s much more terrifying as a result of Jung Sook has been monitoring each her husband’s different kids for years, simply so she will kill them. However did she actually kill Ki Younger?
4. When Jin Sung realized that Ki Younger wasn’t useless
Just a little extra digging raises extra questions on Ki Younger’s demise. Why would somebody with such a vendetta select to stroll away from life? Why was his physique so obliterated that it took dental data to seek out him? Jin Sung’s crew takes a brand new method: what if Ki Younger’s alive? It doesn’t take Jin Sung lengthy to seek out corroborating proof.
The enamel discovered within the crash matched Ki Younger’s previous dental data from 2019, however they didn’t match his new data. Bae Min Kyu, dentist and assassin, had really stuffed in a cavity for Ki Younger in 2021. Jin Jin manufactured a faux set of enamel and plugged them right into a physique (or an individual, yikes) as a way to faux Ki Younger’s demise. However the man is alive, and it doesn’t take Jin Sung lengthy to hunt him down in Woo No’s suite, alive and properly, however held prisoner. He barges in, Ki Younger turns round, and by no means has a person appeared so comfortable to be discovered.
This was a significantly strong reveal. “Eager for You” isn’t good. There are inconsistencies, authorized inaccuracies, and procedural pink flags that elevate eyebrows, however there’s no questioning that the pacing feels strong and the best way characters are interconnected feels natural. We’ve come a good distance from the preliminary serial killing thriller that began all of it, and the characters’ reactions really feel natural (even when the remainder of the realism doesn’t maintain up at occasions), together with Younger Woon helping in masking issues up for his household out of guilt and self-recrimination. With Ki Younger alive and his incriminating stash of movies now about to throw Younger Woon’s complete household in jail, the query arises of what final reveals the present has for us. There’s in all probability one thing, however I gained’t say no to 2 hours of Jung Sook being demolished both!
