Revenge seems coming closer to the finish line. We got another good episode nothing special though. Se-Ho seems to become terms to his past actions and is on the path to redemption. In a way, he is trying to save his mother as well.
I’m not sure how did Mr.Park got the job and if getting that kind of job even will be possible in his situation in real life. Especially when Se-Ho’s mother has so much control over the bureaucracy of the education system. That aside he looked dashing compared to his past look.
The romance seems to be on the backburner now that revenge is up in the front seat. Only two more episodes left looks like a happy ending for everyone except the chairwoman. I would be pissed if her personality changes at the end.
