Do-il informs In-joo that they need to hurry to Singapore to get the money prior to Hwa-young doing and doing.
The Episode Review
This was by far perhaps the greatest Little Women episode to date and there’s plenty to be unpacked. Although we are aware that Hye-suk’s chef was murdered following the instructions of Park Jae Sang I believe that leaving Sang-ha off as a suspect isn’t difficult. She’s a skilled manipulator. Choi Do-il is not an unimportant character at all, and both of his parents are part of the family.
It could be that Hye-suk may be the mom of Sangha and it is possible that the Won family as well as their Oh sisters are connected by blood. The attic and dollhouse prove the fact that it is so.
However Do-il is the one who could betray her however, she has trust in him and this makes the situation more difficult for her. I’m pretty sure that In-joo is going to kill Hwa-young (who pretends as In-Joo) in exchange for money.
Jae-sang informed In-hye that there are a lot of things going on in the coming days that make him worried about what he will do the next day. Whatever the case I am sure that the sight of In-Kyung’s nose in at the flower was the last step for The Oh sisters to break apart. Instead of being the epitomize of sisterhood, the K-drama could be a way to show the ways that greed and politics can tear families apart.
