In the October 28 episode, Ji-woo (Rain) and Ji-ni (Lee Na-young) face the danger of losing their lives after being caught by Yang Doo-hee (Song Jae-ho). Ji-woo tries to makes a deal with Doo-hee since he has found out his identity and motives. But Doo-hee insteads orders Mi-jin (Yoon Sohn-ha) to get rid of them for his safety.
Mi-jin has already kidnapped Jang Sa-bu (Kong Hyung-jin), a fellow private agent of Ji-woo’s. She threatens to poison Sa-bu to death if Ji-woo does not cooperate. And when Ji-woo resists and does not give the answers they want, she kills Sa-bu in front of Ji-woo, making Ji-woo feel tormented. Mi-jin then tries to inject the poison into Ji-ni.
Fortunately, Do-soo (Lee Jung-jin) visits Ji-ni in timely manner, and Ji-woo escapes with Ji-ni in the meantime. They go to the temple where they hid themselves before. Ji-woo, giving Sa-bu’s hair to a reverend there, asks him to pray for him. “I couldn’t bring his body and so instead I brought this hair. He died because of me,” he says guiltily.
Ji-woo then calls Mi-jin and warns that he will seek revenge. He says, “You are no longer a menace since I know all about your group. You may have had an advantageous position when I was detained, but since I’m out I will not let you get away. This is a warning. I will not forgive you.”
His remarks hint that he will not deal with them as private agents for Ji-ni but clash with them head-on for his own vengeance.
“The Fugitive” airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays on KBS2 at 9:55 p.m.
