TERIUS BEHIND ME KOREAN DRAMA RECAP EPISODES 23 AND 24
Rewind to the van, it has not exploded yet. Bon is still riding in it with the other NIS agents in the van as well. He thinks about where they are. There should be a right turn in 200 meters. The van turns right.
In the car behind them, Ji-yeon watches anxiously. Agent Kwon looks on in annoyance. Kwon texts someone and then puts her phone away. Ji-yeon peeps this and is interested in what it means. But she turns her attention back to the van.
In the van, Bon knows that they are about to take al left turn. They take that turn. Then they need to go 500 meters straight. But the van stops. he opens his eyes and says, not here.
All the cars stop behind the van. Ji-yeon thinks this is not it either. What happened, why did it stop?
the car explodes suddenly. Ji-yeon runs to get out. Agent Kwon tries to stop her but Ji-yeon breaks free and runs to the car. Several agents have to hold her back as she screams Kim Bon’s name and yells, Nooo! It looks like everyone in the van perished.
At home, the uncle fish died in the fish tank. The kids see it and tell Aerin that Uncle died. They start crying.
Later on, Ji-yeon wonders how this happened. She thinks it is her fault. She is sitting with Agent Shim. He tells her that no one knew that it would screw up like this. But then Ji-yeon remembered what Kwon did in the car with the text message. She thinks it was Kwon, she will not get away with this! She starts crying again, Shim tries to cofmfort her by patting her on the back.
At home, Aerin sleeps with the kids as they ask her what they should do about Uncle fish. Ajusshi told us not to feed it too much. Poor thing. Aerin tells them that they can bury Uncle fish in the garden tomorrow. Don’t worry too much about it tonight, let’s sleep. They all go to sleep. But Aerin wonders what happened to Bon. She wonders if she should call Ji-yeon, but perhaps it is too late.
The next day, they bury Uncle fish int he yard. Joon-hee leaves Uncle fish a sticker just in case he is bored. And Joon-soo leaves a little jelly bean just in case he is hungry. Aerin tells them that they are good kids and then hurries them off to school.
The news says that citizens are afraid of this virus and the vaccine is the cure. Yong-tae watches it but turns it off when Ji-yeon comes in. He asks why she is so late and where his brother is. Ji-yeon breaks the news to him. Yong-tae is concerned and frantic, he wonders what this means for him and if he can trust them. Ji-yeon tells him that they need to move him to another location, he can trust her. But Yong-tae is nervous.
He remembers Bont elling him that there are some things you have to do even though it is difficult, you need to think about how you will live your life.
At home, Aerin prepares a big meal for her ajumma friends because they took care of her kids without notice. They tell her that they just help each other. Aerin asks if they can take care of them a little bit more? Bon will be back soon. SR wonders in his head of Bon broke up with the King’s Bag owner.
They all start to talk about the vaccine and terrorist things but SR tells them that the NIS did an amazing thing. He tells this story about how it was just like the movies! They came and removed the bomb! 3-2-1 Done! But the pharmaceutical company price went way up because of the vaccine. I should have bought it if we had money.
Cut to the main bad guy. He is looking at his pharmaceutical company stock, it is shooting through the roof. he gets a call and asks if Terius is really killed? Then he evil laughs.
Later on, RaDo and Ji-yeon sit with Aerin to break the news to her. Aerin thinks she heard wrong at first. What? Ji-yeon tells her that their mission failed. Aerin goes to Bon’s place and looks around sadly. She remembers when Bon was there as she looks around the apartment. Lot’s of loving memories fill her head.
Se goes back to her place and sits alone as she thinks about Ji-yeon and RaDo’s conversation. Ji-yeon says that Aerin helped out a lot, but the chief does not like her being close to the case because of the terrorist thing. Aerin understands what she is trying to tell her and says that she will quit, thank you so much. So now she is jobless once again.
Aerin laughs back and starts tearing up at the hardships. She didn’t take any vacation or time off, but yet her life has become like this again. She thinks that she is thankful to Bon, she could cheer herself up because of him. But it’s a sad moment as she curls over on the couch to keep crying.
The next morning, Aerin asks her kids if they would like to live in Jeju Island with their grandparents? The kids are into that, but they wonder about their friends. Aerins says that maybe they can live there just a little bit, it is because Umma misses my Umma. She kind of tears a little so Joon-hee tells her not to cry. Aerin says she isn’t crying, it is just a bit of sweat. Let’s keep eating.
TITLE: BLUE NIGHT IN JEJU ISLAND
Later on, Aerin takes a moment to beutifuy herself. It looks like they are in Jeju now. Her mother and father call to her to come out. Sh runs out to the adorable outdoor seaside scene of the grandparents getting the kids ready for school. They eat a lot of energy sticks and give a lot of ko-ko as Aerin heads out. Umma waves at her and sees her daughter as a middle school kid once again. She tells this to her husband. Her husband is all like, yeah and then happily takes the grandkids to school.
Aerin already has a job at a tiny seaside cafe as a barista. Montage of her making a perfect latte for a customer/boss? She asks the boss if she can learn how to make latte art. The boss asks why. Aerint ells her it would be a good happy service for the customers and it could boost their work. The Boss smiles but she tells her that this is jut her hobby, don’t think about an idea that will attract too many customers, then I will get tired, okay? (Same thing that Ji-yeon told her). Aerin says okay.
Cut to Ji-yeon telling Woo-cheol that Yong-tae dissapeared. (OKay, how much time has passed? Months or days?). Flashback to Ji-yeon going to get Yong-tae to take him to the new location, but he is gone. Ji-yeon tells Shim that Yong-tae took everything and left. Then we see Yong tae walking like a Boss through a hallway.
Back in Jeju, a kid buys a coffee and tells her that someone wants it delivered over there. He runs off. Aerin says that they do not do delivery! But she walks out anyway and tries to deliver it. She walks allt he way to the beach and sees a man that is sitting on a bench. She is not sure who this man is, but she kind of has an idea.
The closer she gets, the more it looks like this is Bon. She drops her coffee on the sand and stares at him. She is stunned. He looks over and stands like a tall drink of water. Then he walks over to her and gives her a very needed hug.
Bon – How were you? You came further than I expected.
They decide to go back to her cafe to talk. He tells her that she works in a nice place. Aerin happily says that she wanted to work somewhere peaceful where she can see the ocean. Then she turns to him and asks if he has any injuries? Are you okay? What happened?
The music turns serious as we go to a flashback.
In the van, the two guards leave the van suddenly. The driver throws him a key and says that they van will blow up soon. You need to survive, as much as it takes. Bon takes the key and runs off. the van explodes soon after. He is in the cover of the buildings and sees it blow up and hears Ji-yeon screaming his name. His hand cuffs drop and he runs off.
Aerin thanks him for being alive and then asks him how he knew she was there. He tells her that is part of his job. She is all like, oh yeah…~. She asks if he met JY? He says no, he came there to see her first. He just wanted to do that. he wanted to tell her first, that he is alive. They stare at each other for a moment and the camera scrolls away.
END PART ONE
A CAR DRIVES ALONG THE SHORE
Aerin and Bon are inside the car. Aerin holds her hand out of the window as Bon drives. Bon asks her a lot of questions about the kids and how she likes living with her parents. She says that her dad takes care of the kids at home. But we cut to her dad sleeping as the mom wakes him up to take care of the kids already!
Bon and Aerin walk up at that moment. The kids run to Bon. Yay! Aerin introduces Bon to her parents as the baby sitter. He came here to see Joon and Joon. The grandparents love it and happily greet Bon as if he is their son in law. They joke around with him about taking care of the kids and ask him what he would like to eat.
The women run off to grab the fish as the men and kids stay home.
While walking, Umma asks Aerin what Bon’s job is? Does he take care of kids professionally? he looks like a good guy. Aerin tells her that he is a good guy. Back at the house. Appa shows everyone how to get sea snails (I think?) out of their shells to eat. The men and the kids happily do this with the sea as the backdrop.
Back in the city, some sinister things are going on with the bad guy pharm rep. he meets with The Health Minister and Kwon over a meal to tell them that they did a good job during their anti terrorist work. It looks like the Health Minister and Kwon don’t actually know why they are invited to this dinner, but they are being respectful. Kwon tells the pharm rep that they just did their job.
Shim is also eating there, but he is eating next door so they cannot see him. (Hmm, he might be the evil one for real).
Back at the sea, the family eats outside happily. They all look at Bon because he is really eating a lot, but they are also happy that he is eating a lot. Afterward, Bon tells them all that he will do the dishes because he ate a lot. They tell him that he does not have to worry about it, he can sleep there and eat breakfast and leave. Aerin thinks that it might be uncomfortable for him to sleep there, but he says that he can just pretend to sleep. He has done it often while on missions.
Yet we cut to Bon sleeping so noisily in the same room as everyone. The entire family sleeps in the same room and Bon is keeping them all up. Everyone wonders why Bon is so out cold. Aerin thinks he might have been very tired. Appa says he did work a little today.
Cut to a flashback were Bon watched the kids and entertained them a lot. But then a woman comes and talks about gyul (mandarine) so Bon says he can help her pick them. He comes back with all the gyul. Then another woman comes and asks for help with seaweed. Bon tells them that he can help (the women all ask for the wife). he comes back with seaweed. Another woman comes to ask for the wifes help with the roof. Bon tells them that he can do it. He goes off.
Aerin and Umma hit appa, why did you tell him to do all that! he is our guest. But appa just says he is good at everything, what does he do for work? Aerin tlls him that he is a government worked (gongwan) but he makes very little money.
Bon snores so loudly that he wakes himself up momentarily, mutters something, then goes back to sleep. Aerin smiles.
In the city, Yong-tae meets with the secretary of the voice guy. He wanted to meet with the voice, but the secretary tells him that the voice did not want to see him. The secretary reminds him that he is already dead, he will not be forgiven anymore. He slides him an old cell phone and tells him that he will call him. Yong-tae says that he will really live his life.
Back at the sea. Everyone is awake. Aerin asks Bon how he slept, he says that it wasn’t so good since he was not in his own bed. Aerin kind of laughs. Bu then the kids tell them that they want to go to the sea!
Cut to the landrover that is packed with NorthFace jackets. The kids put on the hackets and run to the beach to have fun.
Bon and Aerin let the kids play as they talk. Aerin says that her father is not from Jeju, he came there and fell in love so he stayed. Her mother wanted to leave Jeju, but her father was sick so they came back to Jeju. My mother was so happy that I was going to college in Seoul, but in the end, I came back to Jeju.
Bon asks her if she regrets it? Aerin says she does not regret it, she just wishes that seh came back successfully. Bon tells her that she has her kids and lived well and worked hard, that is successful. Aerin thanks him for saying that. Actually a lot of big things happened to her all at the same time, so it was difficult. But she cannot give up because of Joon and Joon. She did not even have time to be sad.
Bon says that he knows, he saw it too. It was very noticable. He smiles. But then he tells her that he was always hiding and careful of other people, actually, I was very tired and lonely also, but you shared your energy with me so I am thankful for that as well. I will catch the bad guys, you stay here with Joon-soo and Joon-hee. This time I will catch them.
The ajummas wonder how Aerin is after King’s Bag closed? SR says that, well, actuall, I saw something. DO you remember that I said I saw King’s Bag owner somewhere….she was the one that Bon was dating early in the morning! Listen to me. Bon had a baby at the hospital, that night Bon and the King’s Bag owner went to his house together. The most important thing here is that Bon has so many women! The King’s bag lady, the pregnant lady, and probably so many others.
Sunmi wonders abotu her? Then she tells SR that he should go with her to gt plastic surgery and get a double lid!
Elsewhere, RaDo goes into a convenience store to get something, but changes his entire look and leaves. Bon is standing right there when he leaves. Cue reunion with Ji-yeon moments later when they go to King’s Bag headquarters. Ji-yeon is tearfully happy to see Bon again. She thinks it is nonsense and gives him a big hug. Poor RaDo is sad at all the love Ji-yeon shows Bon, but lets it happen.
Bon tells them that he had help. He will figure out who wants to kill him and who wants to save him.
In Jeju, Aerin finds out that her realtor sold the house. She tells him that she will be there tomorrow. But it is bitter sweat as she looks out over the ocean and then walks inside.
Aerin shows up to King Castle realty to meet with the potential buyers.
Meanwhile, we find out where that last wire tapping sticker is. It was in Eun-ha’s house in her fridge. It looks like it was stuck to a drink. EH gets that drink and unwraps it. The sticker is now on the table. EH goes to continue cleaning up and sees a USB in the kids room. She wonders what it is and checks it on her computer.
It is the murder! EH gasps in shock as she pulls out her phone. She recognizes Kay in the camera as the same guy that talked to Aerins kids. Her son runs in at that moment, so she closes her computer. But the son recognizes the usb as Joon-hee’s and pulls it out. EH is all like, joon-hee’s? No….it’s mine!
Cut to Aerin getting a call when she is in the middle of the negotiations. It is from Eun-ha. But Kay is still listening in on the conversation. The driver helps him. EH tells Aerin that the same person that we rescued Joonhee and Joonsoo from is the same person that killed a guy in a car. It also has Joon-soo appa’s footage there!
Kay pushes The driver out of the way as he listens to this conversation. It looks like they might have heard it on accident? But now they know what is going on.
Aerin comes back in and tells the realtor that she cannot sell the house.
Bon goes to his hideaway, everything is gone. But it looks like everything is still in his secret weapons area. He takes a sigh of relief and goes inside. But then he thinks that Yong-tae is a jashik. He starts to check on his guns and bullets when he hears something outside.
He slowly goes outside as he hears a metal clicking sound. The sound gets closer and closer. Bon hides behind a wall and then turns his gun on the person. His eyes grow wide at the sight.
Elsewhere, Aerin walks around outside wondering what this usb and everything means. Then she remembers the hour glass. She calls Joon-hee and asks him if he took something out of the sand box? Joon-hee says yes, they played with it at EH’s place but it disapeared. Aerins tarts to put two and two together. Perhaps her husband saw all of this happening and then was killed by that guy? She also looks on her phone about the death of the NIS chief.
VO – You can be in more danger if you know more.
Aerin thinks back to her husbands death and then walks with a passion to the apartments to meet with EH. EH is also at a stead trot to meet with Aerin. But Kay is following her! Aerin walks around the corner to meet her. Then everything stops.
Okay, I had some ideas that Shim was actually the real bad guy in the agency so it looks like that is actually the case. I think a lot of people probably thought this. Kwon might just be that annoying person at work that is so by the book that she actually causes all sorts of other issues to happen. For a moment, I thought they might keep Kwon as the eeevil person after all, but that would be a bit too straight forward.
So Kwon was probably the one that saved Terius from the van but of course there could be another switcheroo where Kwon really is the bad guy after all and Shim is the one that saved Terius without telling Ji-yeon. I am really just trying to make this show a bit more complicated than it is probably going to end up being.
