Wow story was fast paced and the acting was briliant. The whole revenge plot was perfectly developed and executed by Dong Eun, and the best part is she didn’t even have to get her hands dirty. She merely exposed their sins, and they destroyed each other.
My fave scene of SHK was when she found out her mom betrayed her again and they had their argument in the apartment and the mom started the fire. Plus the last episode when she was crying after everything was done and she was at the rooftop.
I also loved the 2 male leads, cute puppy doctor Yeo Jeong who would do anything for Dong Eun and the hot ahjuicy Do Yeong who probably would have pursued Dong Eun in another life (my alternate ending).
Yeonjin was so bratty and self entitled all through out. I can’t believe the nerve of her! She bullied kids, killed 2 people, yet she refuse to admit them, and is even the one getting angry when caught. She had no remorse at all!!! How was she able to raise a precocious daughter without her evil side showing?
The other bullies were also evil – 1 is mute (i actually pitied her), 1 is in prison (should have been worse), 1 got killed, and the Jaejun the most annoying one became blind and pushed off into a cement area. Plus Yeonjin’s mom, the corrupt detective, Hyeon Nam’s husband, ugly haired pervert teacher. Lol everyone got punished!!
I Also loved Hyeon Nam. Hope she gets a chance to go to the US and see her daughter.
Son Myeong O’s disappearance went on for too long when he was obviously dead. And it was obvious who had the most motive to kill him, yet the writer tried to prolong the reveal by giving other characters possible motive.
Instead they could have focused on finishing Yeo Jeong’s revenge on Yeong Cheon and showing the couple moving forward and living happily together.
Side note. Dong Eun and Yeo Jeong can do a crossover with the Rainbow Taxi Squad to get their revenge. Lol. I can imagine Kim Doki and Moon Dong Eun plotting already!!!
