I have no idea if he is turning his back on her to protect himself or to resist giving in to his lingering feelings. Deep down underneath the facade of anger and resentment lies a heart that still wants a reason to be around her. Even if he rather die than to admit that to her or himself.
*I regret to say that it’s not possible to do two recaps each night on wed and thurs cuz I already tried and lost way too much sleep. I ended up hibernating since Fri night to try to catch up on all the missed sleep. I made a pro and con list and came up with every excuse I could to try to keep Level 7 till the end, but I’m afraid I have to drop these recaps. Shockingly enough it will be the first JW drama I won’t have finished so it saddens me more than anything. I really want this drama to continue to do well and stay number 2 in the ratings till the end. Just cuz I drop it from my recap lineup doesn’t mean I won’t keep watching and cheering on the cast. I just want to clarify why I chose to recap TWTWB instead of this. TWTWB is just a better fit for me drama wise. I feel more invested in the story and characters – I connect to it in a way I’ve been struggling to with Level 7. To be honest if JW wasn’t on Level 7, I wouldn’t have stuck with it so long. I knew from early on that this wasn’t the kind of rom-com for me, but I was stubbornly loyal. I tried to be as neutral as I could in my comments recently, but it’s been getting harder and harder. Fans of this drama deserve better. They should have a blogger who loves this just as much as them so the enjoyment can continue. I’m not being fair to them cuz you could tell from my intros that my heart wasn’t 100% in this. I’m so sorry to do this when there is less than a month left, but I hope you will all be understanding. Trust me – this was not an easy decision to make.
G watches as S runs off and aims his gun at her while she is aiming at nothing but air. G checks and sees he has 3 bullets total. Jay is nearby S. G sees jay so G shoots at him. S tells G it’s dangerous so be still. G calls out to stay put. she tells him to run away and he says the same thing as he shoots at jay again. she tells G to hide and I will handle this. G says let’s go the last step and jumps down. S mutters I told him to hide – he really doesnt listen/obey.
SM tells D to drive faster. are you going to follow the speed limit when we dont know what happened to S.
Jay runs off and S is back to aiming her gun in every direction. G comes over has his gun drawn on S. S gives up and let’s G help out. she says you remember your training right. I’m going to the 2 oclock direction so you stay here and do it. G says I have one bullet left. S: I will give you mine. G: I have one bullet left so dont move.
jay watches in hiding
S says you were kidnapped. we should catch him first so we dont have time for this. G: I said dont put on a show- where is that guy now. S: I am looking for him now. G: I know you are on the same side. I wont be deceived by you again. throw away your gun. S: I know you are angry at me but right now you have to trust me and follow. G: I am not angry at you. I am the pathetic/hopeless one who fell for you. I will not live like that again. she throws away her gun. S: satisfied now? G kicks it away. put your hands behind your head and get down face down. S: I dont want to – just shoot. you said you had one bullet left. G: you think I wont shoot? S: do you not have confidence? did you forget how to use a gun? she takes his gun from him and says should I show you how? he takes it back from her and aims at her again. she says you cant shoot so why aim. G: let me ask one thing. why did you do that to me? S: do you have to ask that while aiming the gun at me? G: who you are – why you are doing this to me -cuz of who you are doing this. S: is that what you are curious about or are you really curious about my heart? G: I dont need your heart and I am not curious either. suddenly D tells G to lower his gun. D walks over with his gun aimed at G. Jay winces in pain and leaves
G asks how did you know to come here. D: i will count to 5. lower your gun. G: we are on the same side. D counts down. G says we are on the same side. I am an agent too. dont you get that. D keeps counting and S tells both of them to calm down. G says to call it in and just ask. SM says hi to G and says it’s been a long time. she tells D to wait. what are you guys -this looks like back then when we practiced dancing. G: good to see you. SM: not really for me. S tells SM to tell D to stop. we used to be colleagues. SM asks we just need to call it in and confirm it right?on speakerphone – deal?G: deal. SM calls it in. W says to report. SM says we are at the location where G was kidnapped. the culprit isnt here and everyone is safe but I will confirm an ID – is G an agent? W: what? SM asks is G a NIS agent? W says G is not an NIS agent. G grabs the phone and says it’s me. W says I know. you aren’t an agent. hang up. SM tases G. S asks is he is ok. she says to SM: you didn’t have to do this. SM says you think he will obey nicely. call the police cuz he impersonated an agent. why did he get kidnapped anyway. who did that?
Jay is injured and gets away
Y says you used him enough. wasnt there another way. did you have to do that over the phone like that. W says I just said he wasn’t cuz he isnt (an agent) Y says you are always like that. even if you work with kids for ten years you cant know what they are like inside. you said you would never use people again so couldnt you end it nicely. when he used to be one of our own at one time. W: keep getting angry like that and see if you get married for the rest of your life. she barks orders at the staff to check hospitals and pharmacies cuz the guy was injured
D asks S if she finished writing the report. SM looks at her scar and says it was that guy for sure. I should have been the one to catch him. S: will G be ok? SM: at a time like this is that what you are worried about? he wont die. he might be knocked out till tm morning. SM asks D: arent you going. the work is finished. D asks – how is it going. S : I dont know. i have to find the files. G has it. SM: he will give it. cuz he cant just come out of police custody. D: normally you keep going after your goal till you succeed – it hasnt ended yet so dont have a hard time. SM tells D to go to his team. D says I will go and report to the team leader. S says it hasnt ended yet. I will step out for a while. SM says just get off work for the day. S thanks her for today. SM: I didn’t do it cuz I liked you. S leaves and SM says am I invisible. why didn’t he (D) say anything to me. she gets in trouble for drinking by the other guy
D reports to the director that G was kidnapped. D says I am still looking into it. I confirmed that he had the file that is involved with JJ and Han. director asks where G is now. D says at the station for impersonating an agent. director catches on to what W did letting G think he was an agent. he gives D a task to go back to the police stations. after hanging up director calls W a bad name and says W backstabbed him
S goes to jail and asks to go inside. she tends to G’s injuries. D comes to see G and sees S there
Jay is in bed and remembers when his brother died. M is there. he looks at his wound so she says it’s not a major injury you don’t have to worry. what about Han PH. jay: I lose him. he was with his girlfriend – I don’t know what was going on. how she knew to come there. why they were aiming guns at each other. M says like we thought she is closer to either the NIS or police. we have to move up the time table 2 or 3 days so prepare and kill Han PH
G wakes up and sees S sleeping while holding his hand. he sits up and she wakes up too. he says not just anyone can come here just cuz they want. are you police. she says no. G: detective? S: no. he asks are you an agent still. she asks how are you feeling how is your leg. G: I asked are you an agent. S: arent you hungry. G: answer me. she says don’t ask cuz I don’t want to lie to you. he asks why cuz you used me and for all you needed. she says no I don’t want to lie. he says if you cry over a body that’s already dead will that person get up. when all the blood is drained and he is crackly just cuz he sees some tears will his heart get wet? she says if it’s true no matter how late I thought it wouldn’t be late. he says do you know what was the worst time while meeting you? the first time I met you. I shouldnt have met you then. fate? give it to a dog. S: just remember. I didnt let you go yet. G: just answer that. are you an agent. she says I already answered and leaves
W goes to see G and asks did you sleep well. G asks what is this – what’s happened. W: if I asked you have to answer first. did you sleep well. G grabs him and says answer me directly what is all this. W says ok let’s use words. G: what would I have to say with you. W: what did I teach you. If I want to get the answer i want. G: toss the answer the other side wants first. W: that’s right. did you sleep well. G: I always slept well. I will ask – what is this. am I not a NIS agent? W says of course you aren’t. G: then why did you do that to me. were you teasing me. was it fun to play around with me. can you smile after making a person go crazy. he spoke banmal so W calls him out for that. W asks what the 15 th thing in guideline says. G: 15th – an agent has to be sworn in front of the director (to make it official that he is an agent).W points out G didnt do that yet so that is why he isnt an agent. from here on what I am about to say – are you prepared to accept the shock. G: I think so. W says come out. let’s go eat. he hits G for his grabbing his teacher’s collar. do you want to die.
G’s mom says do you know PH didn’t come home. the dad says he does that. I am late. why are you like this from the morning. she asks where did you send him. what if he goes somewhere for a few months like last time. you only have one son. forget what happened in the past. dad says even though I almost died cuz of him I never resented my child even once. everything will be ok by next week. after this deal is over let’s go on a trip. she asks why are you like this suddenly. you aren’t like this. you cant trick me. she wants to get a fortune read so he says just get an amulet
G asks what is S. W says your colleague – an agent. G says you said she quit. W: why I made S get hired by your company – why did she rob the safe -what is the mission you were entrusted with -is that what you want to ask. G: yes. W: I will tell you after you finish your training. G: do I have more training? W: you have to 1n2d. it might take longer. G: then what about my father. W says you said you were prepared to be shocked. he says how G has to throw away stuff like love or God- throw all that way or else you cant be trained and have to go home. G : that wont ever happen. they make a bet on it. W says $10 but G bets way more but W doesnt have that much and wager $100. G: even if I die I will finish the training. where are we going for training
S briefs the team about M and G’s kidnapper. one mentions G at the police so W says I let him go. G is our agent. he is almost our agent. S says he is our agent or not. you said he wasnt then he is and now he almost is – what is that. W says I didn’t fire G. S remembers all the stuff G did that was like an agent. how he followed her without her knowing. S says I am going crazy. why did you make me go after him if he was an agent. if you were going to make me go after him at least you could have told me he was an agent. you could have told me he was almost an agent. why did you do this. if he was an agent – no if he was almost an agent he would have obeyed and brought the files if you told him to. W says in a scenario you dont choose the one with the highest possibility – you choose the one that has the lowest possibility of failure. even though he is an agent how could he do that to his father without wavering. S says you entrusted me with this task cuz you believed in me so shouldnt you have told me all the proper info about. W says your colleagues could deceive you. if his heart wavers that’s the end. S: then what do I do – I already deceived a colleague. SM feels bad cuz she tased G. Y says this is so like you – you should have told me – did you not trust me either. she spoke banmal so he says this is why you don’t have a man. I will be gone with G for a while. don’t go around on (suns) dates. Y wonders what is going on
S remembers how she asked G – what did you say you were and how G said I am an agent. S says this guy deceived me too.
some man bribes S’s dad with beef and says use my son’s crane for the building. another man gives a bribe that doesn’t please S’s dad. so he gives some honey for S. so the mom accepts it. she calls S to tell her
W’s wife is making their daughter practice English. the mom says you will starve to death in NY. she hits her for forgetting what she learned the day before. W comes home and watches them fight
his wife is packing his stuff and asks when they are going to America. when are we leaving. I never asked once when you come home and stuff. so cant I ask this. he asks what is going on. is something going on. she says how his daughter is having a hard time in school for beating up kids and taking their money and smoking. should there be more than that. he says I wont be able to come home for a while. she says go when did you ever ask for my permission. she walks out. he goes over and says I love you. she splashes water on him when he tries to kiss her.
at the office S asks about G. Y says don’t bring up G in front of me. SM says D so Y says that guy too but D is right there next to her. Y is mad at him for coming and going. S asks if she wants to drink. Y:why so I can hear I am a C again. SM asks why cuz of your age? Y says we succeeded 50% cuz we have our agent. she goes on about how they use people. S says we weren’t able to trust G. Y tells them to do their work. D says I will go and organize my things. he leaves and looks over at S
W and G are camping. W is drinking and talking about one road for the country. G asks for help putting up the tent. W says agents did that alone. G says ok just keep drinking
D reports to the director about G and park took the fake technology and what would happen if the police finds out. director asks you know his dad is a criminal right. D: yes but G is still a colleague. director says an agent with a problem is more scary than the enemy. D says I will drink some alcohol today and play
G asks what is my real mission. why did you get me to do it. W: to protect your father. G says that wasnt the real mission. i kept thinking about what you said back then. what W said: why you are being fired – the real answer is with you. if you want to know find it. G: no matter how much I look for the answer I cant find it. it might be possible if my father was a criminal-if I stay by his side i can take any file. my father might not be a good person but he isnt a bad person. W: do you think that way. G: what is my real misson.W: i told you whatever i say prepare to be shocked. your father is involved with international spies. he had the files and if we have it then we could get the others. S got the mission to take that file. G asks you made me spy on my own father when he was the criminal – when I am son? W: it was the lowest chance of failure. G: does S know all this truth and approached me. W: of course. G: she even knows what my dad did? W nods yes. G remembers what S said about his dad. you love your dad. if it doesnt get better between you two now, you might not get the chance to make it get better. G asks why couldn’t you ask me to do it – to get the file. W: if you knew what your father did could you have done that? you didnt know that (about your father) to be able to do everything up to here. G: you couldnt trust me. W: even when you saw your dad’s file you couldnt sense it was strange. it wasnt cuz you couldnt sense it – it was cuz you thought of something. since it’s your dad you wanted to protect him. if that was someone else’ file. G says I might have done that. you are something else making me so cowardly. W says bring your dad’s files. G says if you have confidence come and get it yourself. I will confirm if what you said was true or not. W: bring the files. G: lets not meet again. W: if you leave now you cant be an agent. G says I don’t need it all. W asks for the money they bet on. G says if I felt even a little bit like an agent I wouldn’t be leaving like this. W says something sincere to him: our job is not cool but cuz of you I wanted to live cool. I mean it. G leaves and tells him to take down the tent himself. W calls out and asks for money.
SM and D arrive as G was walking away. SM says sorry for tasing you. other agents come over. they say how good it is to see G. how they missed him. they say we couldn’t let you be trained alone. let’s go. G asks how did you know to come did the team leader send you. the man says S told us. don’t you remember how you got our money back in the card game. a car pulls up as the girl links arm with G. he says go there first cuz I will stop by the bathroom. he goes over to S who got out of the car. G asks did you tell him to train me and brought everyone. he asks did you think I would be moved by this. you failed. I am leaving. S: I will talk as a woman a colleague and a human being. I missed you. they all think they owe you a debt after the card game. don’t you have a debt to your colleagues.
jay and M are meeting. he shows her the area of the deal. when Han and Park give each other the objects agents will come in. confirm the target here and over here kidnap the director. catch him alive. M says Han won’t come out. I will do the deal myself since they already know about me. you can kill them-you just need to kill 2 (director and W) they will know we will come out and will see our face. i will take the file here and you just need to give it to the company. Jay: are you getting revenge to die when I am getting revenge to live. M: I already lived a lot. Jay: cuz hyung is gone?M: yes. jay: But you have me instead. M: this is the plan/objective. if it’s for my sake, just do it this way. after it’s over go dont delay and to the airport and leave. jay: it wont work. I am alive but I cant beat my dead hyung. he holds her hand and says I said let’s live together. whatever that means (meaning even if she doesnt have feelings for him).
at camp W calls them to order. D tells G to go to the front. cuz this is all for G. W makes G and S step to the front as the reps. W makes them swear in like during their training. G is sworn in. W gives G a formal certificate. W says they are all his agents. he wants them to be proud they are agents and tells them to drink. W tells he contacted the director but he was busy.
they gather around the campfire and W says he loves them. S makes a cheer and says I love han gilro (one road) W wants someone to sing. SM says D will for the sake of the colleagues. so D sings and everyone joins in. G just sits and drinks and doesn’t join in. they say next is today’s main start and make G sing but he says I have to go to the bathroom
G is walking and S catches up to him. he asks where did you move to. she says I didn’t move. he guesses it was a team that was sent there. was there anything you said to me that was true. she says the name of my dog and liking you. he says one of them would be the truth. she says my heart was real like your heart was real. he says don’t try so hard cuz there is no need for us to meet in the future. do you know why we cant work. I am Han PH. who are you. she says later when we go on a trip I will tell you everything. he says I don’t want to go on a trip with a woman I don’t know the name of. we just give each other pain. S: if you say the next thing I wont see you forever. G: it’s funny to say this when we already did but let’s break up. he walks away
S’s parents are eating the beef and grilling it. the mom wonders if they can accept this and eat. she asks how about getting G to help us.
S gets a call from her mom. her mom says give me G’s number. S asks why do you need his number. the mom says to call him. S asks what are you going to call him for. the mom says to come and visit us. he is a good guy. nice, drinks well, good looking. S: what else. the mom says G looks like her dad when he was younger. bring G and come over. G is packed to leave and hears her. S asks you like G too don’t you mom. but I don’t like G. cuz I am hurting so much. she is crying so the mom asks are you not feeling well. S says thank you mom and hangs up. she sits and cries as G watches.
