At the house, Je Ha continues with his plan enlisting the help of the maid and J4, as well as scoping for snipers.

The next day, Kwang Soo is with the chief of police doing some digging to find out more about Je Ha, including his past. Kwang Soo figures out Je Ha was the soldier in the operation he had that killed Je Ha’s fiancé.
I loved these episodes especially episode 8. I can’t quite understand who to like among the politicians anymore because Yoo Jin has become the evil step mother once again. Se Joon, while a super creep, is revealed to actually care about his daughter. What I do know, is that I love that Anna is now empowered. She now has the upper hand, and I think it’ll be awesome to watch how that unfolds along with the new found romance. I think it’s obvious that Je Ha has more than protection in mind. And while I like the action, I am super excited for more of a the romance aspect now that the two have properly met and get along. The roof scene was absolutely one of my favorites, next to the ramen scene of course. And I love seeing Je Ha slip out of his badass, stealthy soldier mode into a dorky man in love who falls on roofs, but acts like it’s no big deal. Clearly it’s a 10/10! The chemistry is absolutely amazing and the character progression is stunning to watch!
