Y’all the plot is thickening so much that the bottom is starting to burn on this rue, and I love it! Ah, everything about this show is a mystery and has me wondering how the situation is going to change today.
So, today on VIP, the Black Society task force started meeting which proved to be a situation where the VIP team can showcase how important they are. They have all the information on all the VIPs so Jung-sun respectfully throws her might around with that as she says who should and should not make it on the long list.
But there is one person who they know nothing about. A VIP named Lee Soo-jung. However, Sung-joon knows about her and says that she is not a candidate and to move on. Jung-sun shoots him with eye daggers.
Later one, both Sung-joon and Jung-sun meet with the CEO to discuss the Black Society. The first event the CEO would like to have will be a charity event with the single sons and daughters of their elite VIPs. It will be similar to a dating event for them so that their money and influence can stay with the rich and powerful. She gives them the name of a match maker to the elite that they should check out.
So Jung-sun, Sang-woo, Yuri, and Sung-joon drive in separate cars to the event. Jung-sun also has stomach troubles on the way which makes Sang-woo grow concerned for her.
At the offices we meet the Match Maker who looks like she is the head curator of MOMA in her very fashionable all black attire and pleasant yet sharp looks. She says that she will help in this event if she can interview Sang-woo who she knows is the Foreign Affairs Ministers son and at Yuri who she knows is the VPs daughter.
They both agree and start giving their interviews separately. While they are interviewing, Jung-sun’s stomach grows worse. Sung-joon notices so after awhile he starts to get her a water from the faucet. But Sang-woo and just gotten medicine for Jung-sun and stops Sung-joon from giving her the water, saying that it is better for her if he does not go in front of Jung-sun.
One interesting part of the interview is that the Match Maker asked Yuri what kind of man she wanted, not as On Yuri, but as Ha Yuri. We do not know what Yuri’s response was, but you better believe that I think she gave it.
When everyone else leaves, Jung-sun asks the match maker about Lee Soo-jung. The Matchmaker says that Lee Soo-jung will not be apart of the Black Society because she is a longtime mistress of the VP. Everyone knows about it, even his wife. It is an open secret.
Afterwards, Sang-woo takes Jung-sun to a clinic to rest and get an IV drip.
Earlier on in todays episode, Jung-sun found out that Sang-woo was the magical animal in the answering booth at the birthday party, but she does not tell him that she knows. However, it looks like his answer to her confession, about seeing her as happy in the future, might be changing her opinion of him.
Jung-sun has three key meetings in todays episode. One is with the CEO who says that she has to prove herself in order to be her person. Jung-sun agrees to that. The second is with the MatchMaker who says who the mystery VIP person is. And the last is with the VPs wife.
In the meeting with the wife, Sung-jung tells her that she knows about Lee Soo-jung and asks if this woman is why Sung-joon and the VP are close. The wife is all like, child, you do not know the half of it and starts to explain eh-vah-ree-thang.
The wife explains that, not only is Lee Soo-jung her husbands long time mistress, he has also had dozens and dozens of other mistresses through the years. Sung-joon takes care of all of them for the VP by caring for them when they are the flavor of the month and giving them money and non-disclosure agreements when he has had his fill.
But on top of that, Lee Soo-jung is even more deeply involved because her and Sung-joon are co-owners of an account where the VP hides all his secret money.
The wife tells Jung-sun that she can easily destroy Yuri and her husband by releasing the affair and the secret account publicly. But Jung-sun knows that this will destroy the VP too. It looks like the wife would be happy if that happened as well, though she does not want to get her hands dirty with it.
That is the main storyline. The side storylines involve Mina and her husband who are both trying to figure out if her quitting her job and staying home with the kids is best for her; and Hyun-ah and Jin-ho’s storyline who are starting to adorably date.
Another side storyline is with Yuri who is realizing that her new family is pretty cut throat and she has to be that way to survive. She has 3 other cousins who all think that baby lions should be pushed off a cliff so they probably loved the opening to The Lion King.
Next week is the last week of episodes and I cannot wait! See you all there!
