Actor Jang Keun Suk sincerely expressed gratitude for model/actor Jeong Hyojun's dedication to 'SWITCH'.

 On April 25, a special press conference of drama 'SWITCH' was held in SBS. At the press conference, actor Jang Keun Suk and actress Han Ye Ri showed up to talk about the drama.

 Jang Keun Suk plays the two male protagonists of 'SWITCH', a con artist named Sa Do-chan and a righteous prosecutor named Paik Jun-su.

Since the two characters are completely different from each other, Jang Keun Suk talked about his struggles from playing the characters.



Jang Keun Suk said, "This drama makes me to endlessly think of my roles. When I play Sa Do-chan, I become confident and active enough to use all space of the filming site."


He added, "That's how much the character is free, active, instinctive, and so on. But Paik Jun-su is completely different from Sa Do-chan."

Jang Keun Suk noted, "He is always refined even when he moves. To describe the role, I would say he is too honest, who perfectly fits to the definition of honesty and justice."

He continued, "The staffs of our drama were so shocked at first when they saw me at the filming site. I had to play the role that is brand-new, so they said I looked really different from who I really am."

Jang Keun Suk confidently said, "When I checked my acting, I was quite satisfied with it. My acting seemed to fit the word 'Switch'. It's really hard to change from a character to the other one, but I am trying my best with responsibility as the main actor."



He held the mic back at the end of the conference to express gratitude for someone special.

Jang Keun Suk said, "Aren't you curious of how we film the parts with all my characters in? There's a stand-in to film the scenes, but his face is never shown on screen."



He noted, "He always comes to the filming site and have conversations with me. He has never been lazy with his work, and I would like to sincerely express gratitude for him."

Although Jang Keun Suk did not mention the stand-in's name, he gave a hint of the actor by saying, "He is from Mnet's audition program 'Produce 101' (2017). That's why I have a special attachment to him."

According to the staffs of entertainment industry, it is noted that the stand-in is model/actor Jeong Hyojun from YG KPLUS.



After he was in 'Produce 101 Season 2', Jeong Hyojun is seen from various dramas to build his acting experiences.

Jang Keun Suk's abrupt expression of gratitude for Jeong Hyojun not only unveiled how 'SWITCH' is filmed but also put a spotlight on the emerging actor.

[SWITCH - Article] Jang Keun Suk's Comments During 2nd Press Con - 2018-04-26




Jang Geun Suk Comments On “Switch” Going Head-To-Head With “Suits” In Viewership Ratings



With the Korean drama remake of “Suits” coming up on April 25 at 10 p.m. KST, SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Switch” will be facing some competition in viewership ratings.

During a press conference for “Switch,” Jang Geun Suk was asked how he felt about the two dramas going head-to-head in the same time slot.

“These two dramas have different genres, so I don’t worry about how it will turn out. The broadcasting station might hate me [for saying this], but I don’t even have time to worry about competing dramas because I focus on my own. I try my best not to lose sight of my character. I don’t think I feel any burden [in regards to competition],” he expressed.

Jang Geun Suk also talked about the fairly low viewership ratings for “Switch,” saying, “I think it’s dangerous to be emotionally affected by numbers. Of course high viewership ratings can give us more energy, but I don’t think the actors and atmosphere on set should be affected by low viewership ratings. It does not have an effect on our teamwork. It would be nice if the viewership ratings were in double digits, but we’re still having fun with filming right now.”

Watch the latest episode of “Switch” below!

[SWITCH drama recap] - Episode16



AIR DATE: Thursday, April 19, 2018

In the Namsan Club, Geum Tae-Woong descends the staircase, as an enraged Choi Jung-Pil glares at him. Ignoring Choi, Geum strides past him and proceeds to sit in Choi’s chair. With a look of utter contempt, Choi yells at Geum, demanding to know why he sits in his chair. Geum informs Choi that the club is in need of a new leader. A real leader!

Choi orders the other members to throw Geum out, but they do not obey. Instead, they are in agreement with Geum. Infuriated even more, Choi cannot believe Geum has the audacity to devise a coup and realizes Geum was the one who killed Gye Choon-Shik in order to pay for the members vote.

Geum tells Choi that if they want a new king, they need a new kingmaker as well. As Choi searches the room for any signs of support, none of the other members can look Choi in the eye. Throwing some final words at Choi, just to show how much he despises him, Geum quotes the words Choi had once said to him. ‘ A flower is pretty only when it has bloomed. It looks pitiful once it withers.’

Feeling dejected, Choi Jung-Pil leaves the meeting, ensuring he maintains his pride. Once inside his car, Choi tells himself he will make Tae-Woong regret betraying him.


Investigators Go and Lim discover that the security systems at K Saving Bank were turned off before the incident then turned back on afterwards. Informing Do-Chan and Ha-Ra, they conclude that this indicates premeditated murder and that someone very powerful is behind it.

In the meantime, Manager Kim reports to Geum that prosecutors Baek and Oh sent investigators to the bank, infuriating Geum. He summons District Prosecutor Jung to come to his office. Familiar with the legal system, Geum know something needs to be done about those two.

Jung Do-Young grumbles to himself as he walks to his car. Allowing his status to boost his own confidence, he believes he is in a more superior position than Geum. How dare Geum order him around!

Tae-Woong informs Jung that he is aware Baek and Oh are digging into the case, but Jung responds that he cannot do anything without a justifiable reason. At this Geum savagely kicks Jung in the shin, forcing him to buckle to his knees. Jung suddenly realizes that status position is now not the currency. Violence is. Tae-Woong shows Jung who is in charge and that he had better follow instructions without questioning.


At K Saving Bank, the senior manager of finance, Han Ji-Young, reads media reports about the suicide of their president. She verbally lashes out at her juniors when she hears them gossiping. Feeling dejected with her surroundings, she leaves the office. Not too far away she goes into a public phone booth and dials the office of Baek Joon-Soo. Investigator Go answers the phone where she tells him she wishes to express her suspicions but insists her call be kept confidential. Repeating what the caller is saying, Go alerts Do-Chan and Ha-Ra to pick up their phones, enabling them to listen in on the conversation. Ji-Young continues that she wants to report an embezzlement crime within K Savings Bank. She tells them that Gye did not gamble the money away, rather he was ordered to have it transferred.


Realizing the risk, Ji-Young quickly apologise and hangs up. Investigator Go, instructed to trace the call, manages to located the phone booth. Go notices a sweet melon van nearby that has a camera installed on the windshield. From the camera, they are able to obtain a photo of the caller, identifying her as Han Ji-Young. Oh Ha-Ra attempts to talk with her as Ji-Young leaves the office, but Ji-Young denies any knowledge.


At the prosecutors regular briefing session, Dae-Ro reports that the Gye case has been ruled a suicide due to the guilt felt by Gye from gambling the money. Case closed. However, Do-Chan and Ha-Ra are not at all satisfied, but their hands are tied. Jin Kyung-Hee does not question the case either. Heading out of the room, Do-Chan loosens his tie and announces again that the prosecutors are the problem. Time for his team to set up another scheme. If you cannot follow the rule, then you find an alternative.

The team manages to find out from a dating agency that Han Ji-Young’s ideal man is a doctor. They know she has an appointment to see her dermatologist at 2:00 pm tomorrow. Spinning his fidget spinner, Do-Chan ponders for a moment then stops the spinner. Plan is in motion.


The next afternoon, Han Ji-Young holds a take-away coffee cup as she sits in the outpatient waiting area of the hospital. In the row of seats in front of her sits a man in patient clothing, holding onto a single crutch with one hand, the other hand holding the handle of an intravenous pole. One leg bandaged, his head also bandaged and wearing a neck collar, this man, Director Bong, does not look at all comfortable. While she sips on her beverage, she hears two nurses behind her talking, one being Eun-Ji. Eun-Ji tells the other nurse all about the new psychiatrist, Dr Brian Kim. Attempting to lure JiYoung’s interest Eun-Ji continues to talk about this handsome, capable, well travelled, well educated, and single man. The nurses suddenly become excited as they can see Dr Kim approaching. As Eun-Ji stands up to greet him, Ji-young takes the opportunity to sneak a glance at him.

Although completely unethical, Dr Kim and Eun-Ji talk about the welfare of a patient who may have a form of self-inflicted eye injury, oedipism. In case Ji-Young is listening to their conversation, Do-Chan rattles off the name of an antidepressant, Lexapro, and is about to mention another, Abilify, an anti psychotic drug. However, he forgets its name! Desperate for help, he makes facial expressions, hinting to Eun-Ji to help him out.

Just then, Ji-Young’s number is called and, as she attempts to walk past Dr Kim, a very bandaged Bong holds his crutch out, causing Ji-Young to trip. Like in a slow motion romantic scenario, she falls into the arms of Dr Kim, spilling her coffee on his white jacket.


While Eun-Ji and another nurse attend to Director Bong, Ji-Young attempts to wipe the coffee of Dr Kim’s jacket, apologizing profusely.


Ji-Young buys them both a drink, and they sit outside while she continues to apologize and offers to pay his laundry fees. As they chat, Do-Chan notices that she looks troubled and suggests to her that stress can cause skin issues. Encouraging her to disclose her stress or reveal any secrets she may have, Do-Chan explains how the nervous system works and its response to stress. Seeing how confused she is becoming as he continues using medical terminology, he tells Ji-Young that it would be beneficial for her to share her troubles.

While Han Ji-Young was in with her dermatologist, Do-Chan, or rather Dr Kim, is upstairs ready for his cue to approach her once again. To appear as though he had been a part of a doctors round, Do-Chan joins a group of doctors who are descending on the escalator. On the way, Dr Kim sees Ji-Young and waves at her. She waits at the bottom of the escalator for him and agrees to meet at a cafe. Unaware they were spotted, Oh So-Ra curiously watches Baek Joon-Soo dressed as a doctor talking to a woman...or are her eyes deceiving her.


At the cafe, Doctor Kim and Ji-Young sit at a table, drinking chamomile tea which helps people relax, according to Dr Kim. However, Ji-Young still does not trust him enough to share her troubles. As they depart, they try to establish another day to meet at the cafe again. Knowing how urgent it is to retrieve any information form her, Do-Chan makes up some fabrication that he has to travel the day after next so he only has tomorrow available. Once they agree on a time to meet, they go their separate ways, but not before Ji-Young hands Do-Chan a container of kimchi. Do-Chan places the parcel, wrapped in yellow material. in the book of his car, oblivious to the fact that someone is watching them and taking photos.


In Ha-Ra’s mother’s chicken and beer restaurant, Old Man Bbeong comes for a visit. Mrs Oh invited him to sample her new recipes. On the table is an arrangement of delicious looking chicken dishes. As Bbeong tries one, he compliments the dish, but says it needs a finishing touch: his kettle popcorn. Just then Oh Ha-Ra enters the shop, greeting her mother, and notices she has company. Before her mother can properly introduce Ha-Ra to Bbeong, Bbeong reveals how much he already knows about Ha-Ra. For a prosecutor, that can be a cause for concern. Once Ha-Ra sits down to join them, Bbeong hands her a bag of the rice biscuits, asking her to try them. He effortlessly tells them the process of how the rice cakes are made. For such a simple snack, he manages to make both women smile and giggle. This man certainly knows how to smooth talk a sale.


Returning home to his apartment Do-Chan is convinced he can wrap up this aspect of the case in a day or so. Eun-Ji, with a hint of jealously, announces that she hopes it will be over by tomorrow. When Do-Chan tells them there is kimchi in the boot of his car, Eun-Ji retorts that she hates kimchi, exiting the room.

On his way to the office the next morning, Do-Chan is forced to pull over due to a police road block. Apparently they are stopping and searching cars. Knowing he has still left the container of kimchi in the boot, Do-Chan does not worry. From his side mirror he sees a man wearing a baseball cap walking away from his car. Thinking he is an officer, Do-Chan thinks nothing of it. The officer gives Do-Chan the okay to continue on.


When Do-Chan arrives at work, he finds Ha-Ra and the team munching on the rice biscuits. Ha-Ra recapturing what old Man Bbeong had told her about the transformation of the single rice into the biscuit, to the team. Just as Ha-Ra is about to explain to the group about ‘you press on it and heat it for awhile and……” Do-Chan buts in and finishes the sentence…once its endures the pressure and heat, it is reborn in a new form.’ Ha-Ra expresses shock that Do-Chan said this exactly as Bbeong had. Do they know each other?


After work, Ha-Ra and Do-Chan walk out together to their cars, still eating the rice biscuits. HaRa’s sister suddenly comes running up to them. She tells them the media has hold of a hot issue and asks if Do-Chan really took the bribe. Ha-Ra and Do-Chan look at each other bewildered. They have no idea what So-Ra is talking about. She, then, shows them the media report on her ipad. They see an article with photos taken of Ji-Young giving a parcel to Do-Chan who places it in the boot of his car. The article reports that Ji-Young had confessed that Do-Chan forced her into giving him a bribe. Ha-Ra is clearly upset that Do-Chan had acted without reporting to her first. He tells Ha-Ra that he did in fact meet with Ji-Young last night and that she had given him some kimchi. Just as So-Ra is about to whisper to Ha-Ra about seeing Do-Chan at the hospital, they are surround by numerous cars.


Meanwhile Geum Tae-Woong is at his favorite fishing spot. He feels confident that he is going to catch a big fish. Geum waits patiently and quietly waiting for the right moment.

Upon the arrival of numerous cars, hoards of reporters explode on Do-Chan. Regaining his composure and after the initial crowd calms down, he tells them he is innocent and all that is in his car is kimchi. Walking to his car he opens the boot to reveal the parcel wrapped in yellow material. Unwrapping the materia,l he unclips the lid of the container and lifts it off. To his astonishment, the container is full of money. Not kimchi, but wads of money.

At the exact moment Do-Chan removed the lid of the container exposing the money, Geum TaeWoong’s fishing line catches a fish. He explodes with success!


Realizing that the police road block had been the diversion needed to exchange the container in his boot, Do-Chan comprehends that he is the victim of an incredible switch. Now he will have to endure a time of heat and pressure.


Chief Yang, Oh Ha-Ra and Sa Do-Chan stand in Director Jung’s office. He is evidently angry and explains to them that he cannot let this go unpunished. He demands Do-Chan's ID and badge and suspends him. Do-Chan has no alternative but to comply.

Later in Chief Yang’s office, the three of them reflect the situation at hand. Yang feeling guilty for letting Joon-Soo down, by allowing Do-Chan to stand in for him. How can he face Baek Joon-Soo now.

Afterwards, Sa Do-Chan walks into his office reflecting on the sentiments of the room and of being an actual prosecutor, even though it was as a fake prosecutor. Not only has he lost the ability to obtain his personal goal, he is at loss as to how to face Joon-Soo.


At Do-Chan’s apartment, they have all gathered to apologize to Baek Joon-Soo. Sa Do-Chan, Oh Ha-Ra, Chief Yang, Director Bong, Jeon In-Tae and So Eun-Ji. All of them feeling a sense of remorse, but nothing could possible compare to how Baek Joon-Soo is feeling. Being a prosecutor, one who completely abides by the law has been utterly and completely betrayed. It hurts deep into his heart. All of them wait quietly for Joon-Soo to say something.


He tells them that he cannot accept any explanations for this incident. Ha-Ra tries to help Joon-Soo understand, but he strikes back at her, disapproving of her taking Do-Chan’s side. Tears form in HaRa’s eyes as his words hurt. Baek continues that Do-Chan is making a mess of everything and that he had warned Do-Chan his method would come back to bite him. Slowly and surprising everyone in the room, Joon-Soon begins to stand up from his wheelchair. Ha-Ra quickly goes to held him steady himself, when he throws her arm off him. stating he will do it on his own. Joon-Soo, then, clearly states that he will take back his position.


While outside there is thunder and lightening, inside the tension rises. Joon-Soo walks over to stand directly in front of Do-Chan and forcefully tells him to get out of his sight.


Afterwards, Do-Chan and his team head to their meeting place. The three of them eager to drown their sorrows in alcohol while Do-Chan lags behind deep in thought.


Geum Tae-Woong is looking out of his office window at the stormy weather, believing that Baek Joon-Soo will soon be fired from his job. Assuming Manager Kim has just entered his office, he is surprised to see that it is actually Baek Joon-Soo. Perplexed as to why he is here and not at a disciplinary hearing, Baek tells him that he is here to sell Geum a man.


Geum scoffs and tells Baek it’s place for the buying and selling of artwork, not people. Prosecutor Baek then reveals his trump card. The man he is wanting to sell is the fake Baek Joon-Soo. Geum, not sure if he is to feel admiration for how successful the fake Joon-Soo was for tricking him, or completely livid at his audacity, is rather at a loss as to how to respond to this news. Baek reveals the fake man's name: Sa Do-Chan.

Betrayal Eats Up the Soul


With the light shining in his eyes, Jo Sun-Doo’s vision is dazzled. As his eyes readjust to the light, he sees a particular figure, menacingly descending down the stairs slowly, followed by two other men. More men gather behind him, each of them holding long wooden pieces of wood or lead. Realizing he will not be able to defeat them, he drops his own weapon and crouches down below the height of Sa Do-Chan. Jo, then, realizes that the man seems familiar. It is the man from the island casino, Prosecutor Baek Joon-Soo.

Moving Jo to an open area of the building, the thugs surround a kneeling Jo while Do-Chan sits in a chair. Do-Chan proceeds to confess to Jo that he is the con artist who switched places with the real Baek Joon-Soo as he had been hurt in a car accident near Sokcho. Jo recalls the argument he had with Manager Kim and, piecing together the information, realizes that Do-Chan is telling the truth. Do-Chan confides in Jo that he is a con man pretending to be a prosecutor...a prosecutor who is in fact a con artist. He tells Jo that since the beginning he has something big planned, involving Geum Tae-Woong, and now that he has access to the privileges of a prosecutor nothing can stand in his way. Do-Chan discloses that the job is worth 300 million dollars which sparks Jo Sung-Doo’s interest.

Deliberately revealing this information, Do-Chan entraps Jo into a situation where he either has to die or change his allegiance to the prosecutor. Previously Do-Chan received a phone call from Oh Ha-Ra regarding the fingerprint identity of the belt. It was not a coincidence that Director Bong and Jo had bumped into each other in the alley near the diner.



Back at the warehouse, Jo Sung-Doo informs Do-Chan that he has a grudge against Geum Tae-Woong for trying to kill him, and he agrees to co-operate with them, for a small portion of the amount of money the job earns. Protecting themselves, Eun-Ji leans out of the darkness of the adjacent stairs, revealing that she's video recorded everything as a precaution against Jo in case of he tries to betray them.


Meanwhile in Geum’s office, Manager Kim remains convinced something fishy is going on with Jo Sung-Doo. He tells Geum of his concerns, alerting Geum that he should be careful of Sung-Doo. He informs Geum that when they collected Sung-Doo from the Chinatown motel, the prosecutors had followed. If Sung-Doo happens to ask the prosecutors for their help, he may betray them. Geum assures Kim that the only way people can betray you is if you trust them, and he does not trust Jo Sung-Doo.


With the task set, Jo Sung-Doo arrives at a church. He enters the confessional booth and passes a large envelope to the priest, Director Bong, in disguise. Jo reveals to Bong that when Geum receives money from K Savings Bank, he writes them a receipt; then, his men take the money and distribute it.

Director Bong takes the information and presents his findings to the rest of the team. Choi Jung-Pil uses K Savings Bank as his own personal banking account. The president of the bank, Gye Choon-Shik, is president only on paper. Choi has ultimate control over this massive slush fund. The team recognize this is a huge break for them.


While Jo Sung-Doo and his subordinates enjoying pizza in their office, Investigator Go, from the prosecutors office, enters. After introducing himself, the others immediately become alert. Investigator Go notices the pizza, asking them if it’s a super supreme pizza.

When Go returns to his office, the others are also eating pizzas. He reports to Do-Chan and Ha-Ra that Sung-Doo adamantly insists the belt does not belong to him. Nonchalantly, Do-Chan and Ha-Ra continue eating, inviting Investigator Go to join them.

Meanwhile in his office, Geum reads through the latest edition of Smart Economy magazine which features a photo of Viktor Jang on the cover. He closes the publication when Manager Kim enters the room, followed by K Savings Bank’s President Gye Choon-Shik. Geum wants to know why Choi Jung-Pil had requested Gye visit him secretly late at night. Gye Choon-Shik reluctantly informs Geum that Choi had requested 100 million dollars be transferred to his slush fund. Thinking quickly, Geum demands Gye to give it to him.


Later that night while Gye Choo-Shik is in the process of transferring the money to Choi’s slush fund, Geum Tae-Woong and Manager Kim enter his office. Telling Gye to transfer the money instead into a different account, Manager Kim hands Gye a piece of paper with details of the destined account. Realizing this new account does not belong to Choi, Gye hesitates to enter in the account number. Threatened by Geum, Gye nerveously types in the details, then clicks on the transfer button, denying Choi of his money. Breaking the tension in the room for Gye’s benefit and announcing to Manager Kim their intentions, Geum admits it’s a great view tonight while looking outside the window.

Minutes later on the rooftop, Manager Kim has Gye Choon-Shik dangling over the edge of the railing. While Gye is pleading for his life, Geum informs him that anyone who knows his secrets either has to die or commit suicide. Without further ado, Kim releases his grip on Gye, causing him to fall to his death. Back inside the office, Geum types and prints out a suicide note, placing it on Gye's desk. During their time in the bank, manager Kim had ensured the security cameras were all turned off.


The following morning, Jung Do-Young finishes reading of Gye Choon-Shik’s death in the paper and looks cantankerously towards Jin Kyung-Hee. She recognizes his appeal and prepares for the next meeting with the other prosecutors.

Meanwhile at his home, Choi Jung-Pil can not comprehend the news he hears regarding Gye's apparent suicide. Gye Choon-Shik was not allowed to die without his permission! Choi is distraught beyond belief. This is bad news for him...very bad news indeed.


After the prosecutors gather in the conference room, Jin Kyung-Hee delegates the suicide of the bank President Gye to Gil Dae-Ro. Mentioning they have the suicide note and motive, she expects him to tie up any loose ends of the embezzlement as well. Chief Yang, Ha-Ra and Do-Chan look bewildered.


As they leave the meeting, Ha-Ra discusses with Do-Chan the oddity that Jin had already concluded that Gye had killed himself. Instead of following usual protocol and asking Gil to investigate the crime to determine if it was in actual fact a suicide and not murder, she had already ruled the case as suicide. Jin also asked Gil to tie the embezzlement to this case……something is off. Do-Chan repeats again that the prosecutors are the problem. Rather than going back to the office, Do-Chan heads to the elevator, telling a curious Ha-Ra that he is off to play janggi at the Feel Gallery. ‘Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer’.


Sitting down in Geum’s office, Do-Chan empties his new white janggi tiles onto the board. Despite Geum telling him that an artist isn’t fussy about what he uses and that is will not change the outcome of the game, Do-Chan obviously has something up his sleeve, hinting to Geum that the demon is in the details. Revealing his knowledge of Geum’s strategy of keeping his horses together, Do-Chan smoothly introduces the topic of Geum’s wife. Placing the topic of his wife as bait, Do-Chan can observe Geum’s response to this otherwise tender topic.


While Do-Chan is at the Feel Gallery, Ha-Ra peers into Gil Dae-Ro’s office pondering how they can access the files on Gye Choon-Shik. A co-worker of Gil’s exits the room, startling her.

Gil Dae-Ro is leaving the office to attend an Alumni meeting when Oh So-Ra rushes up to him, asking his destination. She questions why he isn’t investigating the bank president's death. seeing as she has discovered that he was not a gambling man. Gil can not be bothered as he was told it was a suicide.


On the day of Gye Choon-Shik’s funeral Choi Jung-Pil meets Geum Tae-Woong who is accompanied by Gil Dae-Ro. Choi wants Gil to complete a thorough investigation into Gye’s death, the opposite of what Gil planned to do. Geum then directs Choi to the viewing room to pay their respects.

On their way out of the room, they come across Sa Do-Chan, who has come to pay his respects on behalf of the prosecutors' office. Choi is pleasantly surprised when Do-Chan recognizes him and compliments Choi with courteous respect. Impressed with this young man's behavior, he is immediately disgusted to discover that this young man is in fact the Baek Joon-Soo.

In an adjacent room, the three men sit down together continuing to pay their respects to the deceased and the family by having refreshments provided for them.

Aware of the situation, Do-Chan begins to drive a wedge between Choi and Geum by sharing his thoughts about the case, revealing that something does not add up. He confides to them that as there is no evidence of Gye being a gambling man, they need to discover who benefits from his death. Hardly able to contain his excitement, Choi agrees marveling at Do-Chan’s intellect and requesting that they meet again.

Sitting next to Choi however, is Geum Tae-Woong. With a blasé expression, Geum is being very careful not to reveal any reaction to Do-Chan’s comments. He knows the prosecutor is watching his every move. Baek Joon-Soo is getting too close.


Choi Jung-Pil now knows that Geum has been lying to him. He gives instructions to his assistant to assemble the Namsan Club and not to invite Geum Tae-Woong.

In another car, Geum Tae-Woong directs Manager Kim to bring their timeline forward as Choi is catching on too quickly. They need to succeed before Choi can act.

Meeting on the rooftop of their building, Do-Chan fills Ha-Ra in on the details of his meeting.


It is now her turn to role play. Ha-Ra proceeds to take a selfie for which she animates her avatar. Looking on, Do-Chan makes some peculiar expressions. Then sending a message to Gil Dae-Ro to meet her on the roof, she waits while Do-Chan attempts to enter Gil’s office. While Ha-Ra distracts Gil with her verbal rantings on how to investigate a case thoroughly, Do-Chan enters Gil’s office explaining to the co-workers that he was instructed to check the spelling throughout the file. Quickly flicking through the paperwork, Do-Chan finds what he is after and proceeds back up to the roof top. Ha-Ra is running out of ways to distract Gil when she suddenly sees Do-Chan’s head pop up from the stairway and he gives her the okay signal. Ha-Ra quickly bows and apologies for her insubordination towards Gil Dae-Ro.


In the interrogation room, Do-Chan tells Ha-Ra of his discovery. Not a single finger print was found on the suicide note, not even Gye Choon-Shik’s own fingerprint. Referring to the crime scene photos, Ha-Ra questions why there are no prints on the paper, the printer nearby, or even on the desk that all belong to Gye. She concludes solemnly that this is definitely a murder case.


Jo Sung-Doo and Manager Kim visit the church, trying to locate a Father Thomas, but there is no sign of him at this particular church. Jo, playing his role of appearing upset, joins Kim in the car as they head to Geum’s office. Later on in front of Geum and without Kim’s knowledge, Jo smugly produces a photo of the priest they have been looking for, claiming he is a con man by the name of Bong Man-Ho. Geum is rather taken aback that Jo managed to find this man on his own, and Manager Kim is very skeptical. Thanks to Do-Chan who gave instructions to Jo, Sung-Doo was finally able to prove himself, as well as providing bait for both Geum and Kim. Geum wants them to find what connection there is between Bong and Baek Joon-Soo.

That evening, Choi Jung-Pil reminisces about the golden days and the significance of his stature with the Namsan Club, with an associate. Of how his influence in the underground administration has influenced current Korea. His associate advices that he should not trust Geum Tae-Woong, to which Choi agrees.


Due to Geum bringing his event forward, Choi Jung-Pil is the last person to arrive at the Namsan Club, apart from Geum Tae-Woong himself. Grumbling that Geum is not even there to greet him, he proceeds down the stairs to the group seated at a table below. Mystified why the group does not stand up as he approaches, nor answer him, Choi suddenly stands still.


The group of men are now standing up. Choi can not understand what is going on. Geum Tae-Woong appears at the top of the staircase, looking down on them all wearing a bold red coloured suit.
