Series / Vagabond (2019)

Go To

Vagabond (Korean: 배가본드; RR: Baegabondeu) is a 2019 South Korean television series starring Lee Seung-gi, Bae Suzy and Shin Sung-rok. It premiered on SBS TV on September 20, 2019. It airs worldwide via Netflix.

A mysterious plane crash kills over 200 civilians, including Cha Dal-geon’s (Lee Seung-gi) nephew. Determined to find out the truth behind the accident, Cha Dal-geon travels to Morocco and embarks on an investigation that leads him to a tangled web of corruption. This leads him to get mixed up with Go Hae-ri (Bae Suzy), who appears to be a ditzy intern with the South Korean consulate in Tangier, but is actually a covert operative for the National Intelligence Service. Together they investigate the plane crash, which leads them to a criminal conspiracy that may reach up to the highest levels of South Korean government. The conspiracy may also involve one Jessica Lee, president of the Asian branch of an arms manufacturer called John & Mark; her company was bidding for a lucrative fighter plane contract, against the company that also made the civilian airliner that crashed.

Vagabond contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Hae-ri is an NIS agent who investigates the mysterious deaths of 200 people in the plane crash and capable of shooting firearms.
  • The Alcoholic: Chief Kang, Hae-ri's immediate supervisor at NIS, who seems to have been driven into alcholism by his depression over the NIS basically turning into a PR agency for the Blue House. On a couple of occasions people smell alcohol on him, and in episode 5 he's unashamedly swigging from a flask right in front of Hae-ri.
  • Almost Dead Guy: In episode 15 Oh Sang-mi, bleeding out after a mook slashed her throat, has just enough time to gasp "Sa-ma-el" to Dal-geon (Samael being the code name of the Big Bad) before she croaks.
  • Answer Cut:
    • Upon being told in episode 3 that one Gi Tae-ung has ordered a security sweep of the NIS offices, Chief Kang asks "Where is that prick?". Cut to the man the audience has previously seen at a memorial, laying flowers.
    • In episode 14 Hae-ri, told that Kim Woo-gi is in a hospital for drug addicts, asks "What hospital is it?". Cut to a hospital, where an alarm klaxon is going off while the loudspeaker announces that "Patient 114" has escaped.
  • Artistic License – Law: Apparently, American citizens in Korean jails can be "recalled" to the United States, as happens with Jessica in episode 16.
  • Artistic License – Medicine: A big scene in episode 8 has Woo-gi the pilot going into heroin withdrawal symptoms. The good guys have a physical fight over whether to give Woo-gi a shot of morphine immediately, to avoid the chance of death, or to wait a bit until he gives up the name of who organized the bombing. The only problem with this is that opiate withdrawal, while agonizing, does not involve a chance of death.
  • Badass Driver: Dal-geon is a stuntman, and drives like it. When the brakes of the car he's on are sabotaged in episode 4, his solution is to use an impromptu ramp to flip the car over in order to stop it so he and Gwang-deok can get out. In episode 12, he evades Min Jae-sik and his underlings during a highway chase by driving into the opposite lane and dodging oncoming traffic until he can take the exit to an overpass.
  • Big Bad: Edward Park aka "Samael", who beneath his friendly exterior is a criminal kingpin who has essentially taken over the government of South Korea.
  • Bitch Slap: How President Jung works out his frustration with Director Ahn of the NIS, slapping him hard across the face after Dal-geon hijacks his meeting and reveals the coverup of the accident to the world.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Does Edward just shoot Dal-geon in episode 15? Of course not! No, his people tie Dal-geon up in an elaborate booby trap and then walk away before triggering it. Dal-geon is promptly rescued by Lily, who had followed them to the scene.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Hae-ri is terrible with alcohol. She gets blackout drunk after a few drinks and starts acting inappropriately, while remembering none of it once she sobers up. A flashback to a work dinner shows that she made a drunken pass at Tae-ung, loudly proclaiming her feelings for him to the entire table and kissing him, to which he was not receptive. She gets drunk again in episode 6 and kisses Dal-geon, who reacts with flustered embarrassment and begins to avoid her, while she's wondering what she did wrong so she can apologize to him.
  • Cassandra Truth:
    • At first, nobody believes Dal-geon when he tells them that the plane crash was a terrorist act. Hae-ri starts to think he's telling the truth after hearing the recording from the plane's black box, but still has her doubts until the hotel cleaner Dal-geon insisted was a thief against all evidence to the contrary turns up to kill her at her house.
    • Similarly to Hae-ri, it takes a while for the bereaved family members of the victims of the plane crash to believe Dal-geon. Gwang-deok is the first to come around, while most of the others believe him after they witness the NIS and the police trying to stop Kim Woo-gi from testifying about his crime in the trial.
    • Jessica scathingly tells Edward that he's the most despicable person she's ever known. Since Edward has been nothing but helpful to the heroes up to this point, the audience thinks that Jessica just has a grudge against him... until episode 15 reveals that "despicable" doesn't even begin to describe him.
  • The Chessmaster: Edward Park, who orchestrated events from the beginning not just to get a defense contract, but to destroy his competitor John & Mark, take down President Jeong, and get his own puppet Prime Minister Hong elevated to the presidency of South Korea.
  • *Click* Hello:
    • Dal-geon is outside Hae-ri's door in episode 2, calling for her, when she greets him by putting a gun to his head. It turns out that her gun wasn't loaded.
    • The lady terrorist in Morocco does this with the sniper (the same guy who blew up the plane) in episode 3, just as the sniper is about to put a bullet into Dal-geon.
    • Kim Woo-gi, the missing copilot, does this at the end of episode 7 when catching Dal-geon by surprise. Dal-geon knocks the gun out of his hands and viciously beats him to a pulp.
  • Couldn't Find a Pen: Oh Sang-mi scrawls something in her own blood as she's dying in episode 15. Dal-geon eventually figures out that she was trying to draw the tattoo that he saw on Jerome's chest way back in episode 1.
  • Corrupt Politician: President Jeong, who took a five hundred million dollar bribe (!!) in return for giving the fighter plane contract to John & Mark.
  • Crazy-Prepared: In episode 3 Ho-sik, who's been shot and wounded, runs out of a hospital. Dal-geon and Hae-ri chase after him, and find themselves on a back street...where, somehow, a sniper is already perched and waiting.
  • Death of a Child: Dal-geon's little nephew Hoon and the rest of the children in the taekwondo demonstration team are killed in the first episode when the plane to Morocco that they were on is bombed out of the sky.
  • Determinator: Dal-geon. He chases the man responsible for the death of his nephew through the streets of Tangier and despite the culprit pulling the brakes catapulting him out, he still stands up moments later.
  • Dramatic Drop: President Jeong does this in episode 13, dropping the glass of bourbon in his hand when Dal-geon is shown on live TV, looking straight into a camera and accusing him of complicity in the B357 crash.
  • Dramatic Gun Cock: Happens from time to time, like in episode 6 when Hae-ri dramatically chambers a round in her automatic before going into the karaoke club to arrest Chief Min.
  • Dutch Angle: Used heavily in episode 15 as Dal-geon is having his Eureka Moments about how Edward Park is Samael and his secretary Micki is the Femme Fatale who got Michael and Kim Woo-gi together.
  • Eating the Eye Candy:
    • In episode 4, Dal-geon takes off his shirt before walking into the bathroom so he can take a shower. Lily, who's watching him through a pair of binoculars from the building across the street, hums in appreciation of his chiseled physique, much to her underling's indignation.
    • In episode 15, Dal-geon charges out of the shower naked after he has an "Eureka!" Moment. Hae-ri immediately turns around and tells him that she didn't see anything... only to later admit to herself with a smile that she saw everything.
  • Enemy Mine: Two in the finale:
    • The disgraced former President Jeong agrees to provide the necessary funding for Dal-geon to join the Black Sun mercenary group in order to take down acting President Hong and Edward Park because he knows that Dal-geon is the only person with both the skills and the necessary drive to accomplish the task.
    • After Dal-geon's apparent death, Hae-ri accepts Jessica's offer to mentor her as a lobbyist so she can destroy acting President Hong and Edward Park and avenge the man she loves, something she can't do as a low-ranking NIS agent.
  • Establishing Character Moment:
    • Dal-geon is introduced through his job interview for the Action Center as a cocky braggart who isn't nearly as good as he proclaims himself to be. Then Hoon walks into the frame crying after Dal-geon accidentally hurts himself, and Dal-geon drops everything to calm the boy down before admitting to the interviewers that he really needs this job so he can take care of his nephew, and he's willing to work hard so he can rise up to their standards.
    • When the president of South Korea, President Jung, first appears in the first episode, he complains about his makeup as he's getting ready to address the nation about the plane crash. He later is more concerned about liability for the aircraft manufacturer than he is about the deaths of over a hundred of his citizens, including twenty-odd children on a taekwondo team.
    • Lily is introduced while she's in the middle of killing someone she has tied up inside a bathtub, showing that she's a cold-blooded assassin. She flies to Seoul on Jessica's request and accepts the contract on Dal-geon, but informs Jessica that it's going to be double the usual fee because "there's a premium on killing good guys", showing that she has a sense of morality, albeit a heavily twisted one.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Lily is an ice-cold assassin. But when Jessica orders her to shoot the innocent people surrounding Kim Woo-gi in episode 12, so that she can then shoot Kim Woo-gi herself, Lily refuses.
  • Everything Is Online: In episode 4 Lily the assassin is able to "cut" the brakes of the car Dal-geon is in, by remotely hacking in to the car's control system and disabling the brakes.
  • Evil, Inc.: John & Mark defense contractors, perfectly willing to blow up a plane and kill over 200 people in order to discredit a rival for a fighter jet contract. And it's not the first time, since they were apparently responsible for some sort of Noodle Incident in Chechnya that got a lot of people killed.
  • Faking the Dead: Lily and Do-su save Dal-geon from Samael's death trap in episode 15, but thanks to a few coincidences (his bullet necklace slipping off his neck while he was trying to escape and the Mook caught in the explosion having the same blood type as him), everyone thinks he died back in that warehouse. Dal-geon decides to not reveal himself to any of his NIS friends, including Hae-ri, because it's the only way he can continue fighting against Edward Park without putting his loved ones in danger.
  • Face Doodling: In episode 1 little Cha Hoon draws a kitty face on his uncle, who is sleeping on the movie set between takes. The next scene shows that Dal-geon did the car flip stunt with that kitty face under his helmet.
  • Feet-First Introduction: Jessica Lee is introduced in the first episode with her high heels click-clacking across a stage as she walks up to a podium, to make a pitch to a large audience for her company's new fighter jet.
  • Flashback: Many. A flashback in episode 4 reveals the uncomfortable history between Hae-ri and Tae-ung: she got drunk at a party and made a pass at him. In the present day the ultra-serious and very strict Tae-ung tells her she should have been fired.
  • Hiding Behind the Language Barrier: Hae-ri's drivers in episode 16 make a bunch of crass, sexist comments about her in Arabic, thinking she can't understand, only for her to answer in Arabic and embarrass them.
  • His Name Is...: Chief Min realizes there is a sniper taking aim at him and his fellow bad guys, and he asks his own sniper who the other sniper is, but Min's sniper has only time to say "It's—" before the bullet goes through his brain. It's Min's rival, Chief Kang.
  • How We Got Here: The opening scene of the first episode shows Dal-geon, in a sniper's nest, waiting for a target who turns out to be Hae-ri. As he hesitates to shoot her, the series jumps back to 2006 and the story starts to play out.
  • Idiot Savant: The delivery boy at Bullet Chicken (Kang's secret base and comms center) is mentally challenged and apparently autistic, but he's also a genius hacker. He masks Dal-geon and Hae-ri's IP location as the latter two are taking the boat back from Morocco.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy:
    • The big shootout in episode 8 has Lily's hit squad, pre-positioned on rooftops with automatic weapons, seemingly unable to hit any of the good guys, while the good guys (Tae-ung's team) are able to pick them off one at a time with pistols. Only Lily herself, wielding a rifle with a scope, can hit a target. (She shoots Woo-gi in the knee.)
      • It should be noted that although every named character escapes unscathed, the hit squad kills 4 members of Tae-ung's team (2 with a rocket and the rest with automatic weapons.) It's more of a case of selective Plot Armor.
    • Some more egregious examples in episode 12. An entire North Korean hit squad on the docks can't manage to shoot Dal-geon and the good guys once, despite pouring a hail of automatic weapon fire, even though the good guys with their pistols (and Chief Kang with a sniper rifle) nail the enemy with pinpoint precision. Then later in that same episode, the Seoul cops and the NIS goons unloose another storm of gunfire on the good guys and again hit no one. Once again Lily the assassin has a sniper rifle, and once again she only manages to wing Kim Woo-gi, this time in the arm.
  • Instantly Proven Wrong: Chief Min's confident assertion in episode 10 that there's no way the good guys could have escaped from Morocco, is instantly followed by Secretary Yoon entering and telling everyone that the good guys have escaped from Morocco (the crooked local cop who was working with the bad guys was killed).
  • It Was Here, I Swear!: Dal-geon says this to the police when the body of the murdered reporter (episode 4) disappears from the hotel room.
  • The Killer Was Left-Handed: How Chief Kang eventually figures out that Michael was murdered: the gun was in his right hand but Kim knows Michael was a lefty.
  • Kubrick Stare: "Jerome", aka the guy who blew up the plane along with Woo-gi, does this when confronting Dal-geon at the end of episode 14.
  • Le Parkour: Dal-geon chases the culprit through the rooftops and ended up landing on the culprit's car in Episode 1. He uses the same parkour skills in episode 7 to scout the slums of Morocco when looking for Kim Woo-gi.
  • Lock-and-Load Montage: A goofy montage at the end of the last episode has Dal-geon getting ready for war, loading magazines and chambering rounds and sheathing knives and such, while Hae-ri is, just as dramatically, putting on makeup and lipstick and perfume.
  • Love Triangle: It takes a while to develop—Tae-ung does not even show up until episode 3—but eventually the love triangle sets in. Hae-ri has a brig crush on Tae-ung, who doesn't think much of her, but is also attracted to Dal-gun, who likes her but isn't in the right headspace to be thinking about romance. By the time Tae-ung gets his head on straight and realizes that Hae-ri isn't just a pretty face and has what it takes to become an excellent agent, Hae-ri has gotten over her crush on him and has grown closer to Dal-geon, which has become obvious to everyone except, ironically, Dal-geon.
  • Made of Iron:
    • Dal-geon twice walks away from accidents that flipped vehicles. He spills out of a moving car and down a rocky incline in Morocco. He jumps from a three-story building and lands on a car windshield. He takes a licking, and keeps on ticking.
    • It's impressive enough when Ho-sik manages to crawl through a hospital window and run away after he's shot In the Back, but it's really impressive when he stands back up after Hae-ri hits him with her car as she drives up to the scene at high speed (episode 3). The suicide pill he swallows moments later does the trick.
  • Microwave Misuse: In episode 3 Dal-geon escapes from an assassin in a convenience store by throwing a spray can of—something (WD-40?)—into a microwave and turning it on. The microwave explodes as the killer is passing by, delaying him long enough for Dal-geon to get out.
  • Missing Mom: A flashback reveals that after Dal-geon's brother, Hoon's father, died, Hoon's mother dumped the boy at an orphanage. Dal-geon took him home.
  • Monochrome Past: Used in episode 2 to show that Hae-ri was sent to Lisbon to investigate Michael's suicide (actually murder). Not used for the many other flashbacks in the series.
  • No Ending: Unlike most Korean dramas. The story ends in "Kiria", with Edward and Acting President Hong trying to get a drilling contract, Hae-ri trying to stop them, and Dal-geon a mercenary who apparently hopes to use that position to somehow take down Edward Park. There's no resolution to the plot.
  • Not Hyperbole: In episode 6, Dal-geon tells Hae-ri that he could deal with the guards in the Blue House when it was just 14 of them, but was in trouble when they brought reinforcements. Hae-ri thinks he's bragging, but the audience knows that Dal-geon really had to go through pretty much every guard in the Blue House in order to reach the President.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: To her coworkers at the Korean consulate in Tangier, Hae-ri comes off as a ditzy Brainless Beauty, scatterbrained, often late for work. This is a deliberate disguise for Hae-ri, who is actually a secret agent with Korean intelligence.
  • Once More, with Clarity:
    • Episode 2 reveals that the co-pilot's Spanish-language conversation with a girlfriend in Episode 1, right before the plane took off, was actually with the black-clad bomber. The co-pilot is revealed to also be a co-conspirator.
    • Episode 1 shows Michael Almeida, the VP of John & Mark, running away from a number of assassins in Portugal while frantically trying to get the word out about the upcoming terrorist attack on a plane, leading the audience to believe that he was trying to stop Jessica's plan. The same events are shown again after Samael's true identity is revealed: Michael was trying to warn people about the plane not because had a change of heart, but because he realized that Edward Park/Samael had hijacked his plan and was going to use it to screw over John & Mark.
  • Piggyback Cute: In episode 14 Dal-geon uses Hae-ri's sore legs (she's slowly recovering from a gunshot wound) as an excuse to give her a piggyback ride.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: The death of Dal-geon's nephew Hoon brings Dal-geon to Morocco, first to go to the mass funeral, then to find out what happened.
  • Precision F-Strike: In episode 1, after the presentation about the plane doesn't go great, Jessica yells at her flunky Michael. Michael seems to be of Slavic extraction instead of Korean, so she addresses him in English, saying that they have to make that deal about the plane, or "Otherwise, we're dead. You and me—so fucking dead!". (Maybe they got away with the F word because it was in English.)
  • Product Placement: Weirdly averted with Subway, a common product placement sponsor of Korean dramas. In one episode, Hae-ri's friend Hwa-sook is plainly eating at a Subway, and in another Lily the assassin and her sidekick are plainly drinking from Subway cups—the yellow and green color scheme is visible in each. Yet in both scenes the shot does not reveal the Subway logo. In several other shots throughout the series, characters are plainly eating and drinking Subway products, with the logo never shown.
    • The logo is finally shown in episode 13, complete with a big "Subway" storefront sign, as the bereaved families of Flight B357 eat together. There are several more instances of Subway being prominently featured in the remaining episodes, as if to make up for lost time.
    • Episode 15 reveals that if you're driving a Hyundai SUV, you can choose special settings for different terrain! Dal-geon chooses "Muddy, Unpaved, Uneven Road" while driving to his rendezvous with President Jeong.
  • Professional Killer: Lily the hitwoman, hired at the end of episode 3 by Jessica to kill Dal-geon. She drops into English to proclaim herself "Angel of Death."
  • Puppet King: How much of a puppet is Acting President Hong in the last episode? So much, that Edward Park is giving him lists of people to staff even junior positions at ministries, as well as a disc detailing his trade and policy positions. And he's specifically instructed to stop all investigations into the B357 crash.
  • Qurac: In the How We Got Here prologue, Dal-geon is sitting in a sniper's nest, waiting for a target, in the North African "Kingdom of Kiria". This is a little weird, since a good chunk of the story will take place in the entirely real country of Morocco. "Kiria" is not mentioned again until episode 12, when Jessica asks President Jeong about an oil-drilling operation in that country.
  • Revealing Reflection:
    • Dal-geon escapes from the assassin sent to kill him in episode 3, because they are in a convenience store, and Dal-geon sees the killer reflected in the glass of a cabinet of drinks, Just in Time.
    • This happens again at the end of that same episode when Dal-geon sees a killer approaching through the reflection in Hae-ri's sunglasses.
  • Roof Hopping:
    • Dal-geon does this in the first episode when chasing after the man he saw at the hotel—the man who should not be there, since he was caught on the video Hoon sent his uncle from the plane.
    • He does this again in episode 7, when he's back in Tangier, hopping roofs in the tightly-packed slums, trying to find the hideout of Kim Woo-gi, the copilot of Flight B357.
  • Scenery Censor: Dal-geon gets so excited about figuring out Oh Sang-mi's dying message that he charges out of the shower, naked. Hae-ri's head hides his private area.
  • Second-Face Smoke: In episode 3, a mysterious man in a uniform blows cigar smoke in the airplane bomber's face, before casually shooting the said airplane bomber, who bungled things, in the head.
  • Shoot the Fuel Tank: In episode 8, Tae-ung manages to take out a good chunk of Lily's hit squad by shooting some fuel tanks that just happen to be there, sitting on a flatbed truck in the street.
  • Shout-Out: Dal-geon has "God of War" tattooed on his right bicep, which can be seen as early as his job interview in 2006.note  Just like Kratos, Dal-geon loses his family and embarks on a bloody quest to get revenge. It's made explicit in episode 15, when Samael tells Dal-geon that if Dal-geon wants to take him down, then he has to be prepared to "take on the gods themselves".
  • Shower Scene: This isn't a romance like many Korean Dramas but there are still a few shower scenes in a couple of episodes, as the show gets to show off Dal-geon's chiseled physique while he takes a shower and thinks about events in his investigation.
  • Show Some Leg: Mixed with Distracted by the Sexy. Hae-ri is caught by another intern at the embassy in a locked room, a place where she really shouldn't be. So she rips her stockings and, when the man comes in, dangles her long legs at him while claiming that she has to change her stockings.
  • Sleep Cute:
    • The ship teasing gets strong in episode 3 when Hae-ri nods off on Dal-geon's shoulder during the long plane flight back to Korea from Morocco.
    • In episode 11 the two are sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a cargo ship. Hae-ri complains about Dal-geon's snoring and teeth-grinding...but when she falls asleep she wraps herself around him, to his discomfort.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Smart People Play Go, in the case of President Jung and his prime minister Hong, who play a game in Jung's office. This establishes them both as not just smart, but schemers.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: A batch of drugged noodles knocks out the NIS guards and allows an assassin to enter the safe house and come after Dal-geon.
  • Time Skip: The series starts at an unknown point in time in the (fictional) "Kingdom of Kiria", before jumping back to 2006. From there, the passage of time is shown through a montage of Dal-geon working as a stuntman and Hoon progressing in his taekwondo training, until we reach 2012 (present). The epilogue, which takes us back to the opening in "Kiria", is set in 2012-2013, several months after the trial and a few weeks before the upcoming presidential election in South Korea.
  • Title Drop: "Vagabond" is the Trust Password that Chief Kang has set up as the secret base that only he and Tae-ung know about. Hwa-sook uses the password when calling an order to the chicken place in episode 9, so she can eventually transmit to Tae-ung in Morocco the word that the supposed replacement team sent to relieve them in Tangier, is actually a death squad sent kill Woo-gi and Dal-geon.
  • Trust Password: "Vagabond" is the password that Chief Kang uses at the chicken shop, which is his secret base and communication center.
  • Unexpected Virgin: In episode 13, it's revealed to everyone's surprise that handsome, athletic Dal-geon who ticks off nearly every box in the "bad boy" checklist, especially in the flashbacks from when he was younger, is actually a virgin. He's more embarrassed by his new friends teasing him about it than by the fact itself.
  • Unflinching Walk: Dal-geon simply chucks a grenade backwards over his shoulder, and then walks unflinchingly away as the grenade goes off, killing Jerome in the last episode.
  • Vehicular Sabotage: Lily the assassin tries to kill Dal-geon in episode 4 by remotely disabling the brakes on his car using some kind of fancy hacking device. He survives the crash.
  • The Voice:
    • Hoon's Missing Mom, who didn't care back in the day but calls Dal-geon in episode 4, suddenly very interested now that there's the prospect of financial compensation for relatives of the victims of the crash.
    • "Shadow", Jessica Lee's boss and the Big Bad, who is directing events; not seen even when he's talking to Jessica on the phone.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: In episode 6, Hae-ri gets drunk and kisses Dal-geon, much to his shock and embarrassment, and completely forgets about it when she sobers up. The next day she asks him if she did something she shouldn't have, and assumes from his flustered nonanswer and his awkwardness around her that she did something to offend him. Dal-geon eventually decides to forget about the kiss since Hae-ri doesn't remember anything about it, and continue being friends with her.
  • Within Arm's Reach: In episode 3 a masked assassin is garroting Hae-ri. She pushes him backwards and they smash through her coffee table together, but he is able to maintain his grip on the garrote—until her flailing hand finds her letter opener on the floor. She stabs him in the leg with it and escapes.
  • Your Mom: When Chief Min catches Kang in a restroom in episode 9, Kang having overpowered his captors, he sees Kang with his phone. He asks "Who were you calling?", and Kang answers "Your mother. I told her you were being a bad boy." (Kang was actually calling a newspaper reporter and telling him that Woo-gi the copilot is alive in Tangier, but a goon squad has been sent there to murder him.)
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle!: By episode 13 it seems like the bulk of the story has been resolved. Kim Woo-gi has testified, John & Mark has been publicly exposed, Jessica is in prison, Chief Min has been arrested, Secretary Yoon is taking the fall. Hae-ri even calls the case "solved". But there are loose ends, like who sent the video that got Jessica arrested, and who was the mystery sniper taking shots at Lily, and just what was up with Dal-geon thinking that he saw supposedly dead Reporter Jo alive on the streets of Seoul. And of course there are invokedthree episodes left. Sure enough, at the end of the episode Jessica sends Dal-geon his nephew's video from the fatal plane, and the mystery deepens.


Video Example(s):

Alternative Title(s): Vagabond SK


She Saw It

Dal-geon gets so excited about figuring out Oh Sang-mi's dying message that he charges out of the shower, naked in front of a shocked Hae-ri. She denies seeing anything at first, but later admits she did.

How well does it match the trope?
