Yong Pal Episode 13 Recap

Enjoyable episode that featured Yeo Jin…when the story focuses on her, good things happen.

The players: Kim Tae Hyun (Joo Won), a gifted surgeon, incurred debt to pay for dialysis for his sister, Kim So Hyun (Park Hye Soo). He assumed the Yong Pal identity to be a doctor to gangsters for cash. The police found Yong Pal’s want to capture Yong Pal. The police talked to Chief Surgeon Lee (Jung Woong In) who blackmailed Yong Pal to tend to VIP only patients. Our leading lady was drug induced coma VIP patient Yeo Jin (Kim Tae Hee). Yeo Jin was put in the coma on the order of her brother, Han Do Joon (Jo Hyun Jae). Do Joon’s wife Chae Young (Chae Jung An) is working against her husband.

Yong Pal Episode 13

Yeo Jin waits for Tae Hyun to save her. Do Joon smiles his smirky smile thinking he is victorious over his sister once again. But riding in his white car comes Tae Hyun. Yeo Jin and Tae Hyun revel in the shocked looks of Do Joon, President Go and all assembled when Tae Hyun announces he is Yeo Jin’s legal guardian.

Do Joon sputters with rage but President Go quietly tells him not to lose it. They have the USB drive. That calms Do Joon. But he can’t let Tae Hyun go without a threat to his sister. Yeo Jin steps to Do Joon and tells him she knows that he plotted with Seo Hyun against her, she knows what their father really thought of him. Do Joon snaps to the police commissioner to lock them up or he’ll use the knowledge on the USB drive against them.

Now the tables are turned on Do Joon. He is accused of sending a text to blackmail those implicated on the USB drive. Assistant Min hands over Do Joon’s cell phone for inspection. He practically sneers in Do Joon’s face. The cell phone has the blackmail text. They search Do Joon and find the USB drive. Game over for Do Joon. He is arrested. He doesn’t take it well.

The police detective finally gets on my good side when he arrests President Do.

The assembled pledge loyalty to Yeo Jin.

The family of Kim Young Mi, whose identity Yeo Jin has been using, enters the room. Yeo Jin honors Young Mi with a funeral and remuneration.

Do Joon’s wife Chae Young stares at Yeo Jin practically screaming – remember our deal, I get Tae Hyun.

Driving home Yeo Jin remembers the mistreatment from her brother, Nurse Hwang, the Director and Chief Lee in the secret room. I remember she vowed revenge. Will she put that in motion?

Chief Lee freaks out when he hears the Head Nurse tell Secret Surgery Nurse Yeo Jin is alive.

Yeo Jin kicks Chae Young out of the house. That’s unexpected and kinda awesome.

President Go refuses to confess. Tae Hyun learns if he doesn’t confess President Go will be set free.

The police detective lets Tae Hyun go free. They are practically buddies when Tae Hyun leaves the police station.

Assistant Min drives Tae Hyun to Yeo Jin’s house. He learns his position is equivalent to a wife of the big boss.

Do Joon won’t confess to the prosecutor. He invites him for a drink. That’s moxy!

Assistant Min tells Tae Hyun before he enters the house, while he now has power, he should be weak to the Yeo Jin, so he can be strong to the rest of them.

The maid tells Tae Hyun that Yeo Jin is in the kitchen. He finds her directing the chef from a recipe on her tablet. Tae Hyun hugs her from behind. She turns into him and welcomes him home. Yep, they are cute!

Chae Young gets drunk. She realizes without Do Joon, she’s lost status.

President Go refuses to confess.

Yeo Jin and Tae Hyun eat his stew sitting on the counter top. Tae Hyun even cleans the kitchen. Get him to my house stat!

They banter about a wedding, pet names, are sleeping arrangement. Sweetly Tae Hyun reminds Yeo Jin he’ll wait until she’s ready. He sweeps her up into her arms…and carries her to her wheelchair.

A maid that is not charmed by Tae Hyun takes him to him room…in another building on the compound…the building for guests. He smiles.

The lawyer tells President Go “his family” is worried about him. That worries President Go. The lawyer leaves. President Go asks the police detective for some soup.

Tae Hyun diagnosis the maid’s medical issue. She is surprised and softens a bit.

President Go reads the note his lawyer left him. He drain the soup bowl. He thinks. He smashes the bowl and cuts his throat. Yuck! Frankly I’m surprised a note could force him to commit suicide. President Go seemed resilient and evil all the way.

The next morning Tae Hyun is stunned at the impressive array of things to eat for breakfast. Yeo Jin is impressed too.

yp_ep13_15a yp_ep13_15b
After breakfast Yeo Jin heads to the board room. She pokes the assembled men for not saving her while she atrophied for 3 years. They all receive the text that President Go is dead. That gets the men to fall into line. Hmm, did Yeo Jin have a hand in his President Go’s death?

yp_ep13_15dYeo Jin removes her father’s USB drive. She glares at the men. They look distinctly uncomfortable. Yep, Yeo Jin is taking control of the company. I love it!

My thoughts

1. The ascension of Yeo Jin was wonderful to watch. Yeo Jin has two sides – the playful loving side with Tae Hyun and the all business and revenge side with others. The playful loving was best in the kitchen when Tae Hyun cooked for her. Nice scene. These actors have chemistry. Such a simple scene but they made it bubble with affection. The all business and revenge Yeo Jin was terrific. I loved the way she kicked Chae Young out of the house. I loved the way she made each man in the board room realize she had the goods on them and the power that goes with that. Her steely stare shoots lasers. I love it!

2. The fifth song of the OST is released. “Come to Me” by K.Will is a ballad. Check it out via the link or the embedded video below:

    This OTP really has priorities, right? He’s a doctor who never neglects his craft ( and washes the dishes, too! Before yours, he should come to my house first, LOL) and she’s the fearless tycoon. No matter how charming and cute they are together at their private moments, they say goodbye with a smile and are off to work.
    This is quite a new approach for a non-family drama. I may have various objections and arguments in terms of plot but the whole grown-up attitude towards everyday life is refreshing by all means. It’s obvious that the writer does know his job regardless any outside pressure and frenzy. Chapeau!!

      The role reversal of this couple is awesome. He is in the position of “loving wife” and she’s the “CEO husband”. Both actors make it work.
      Yes, the writer is penning interesting moments that help mitigate the others. The episodes seem to be getting stronger.

    Well everything seem to go well. A lesson to lesson women your greatest asset is your husband. Learn to support your husband not working against them. I still sense betrayal among board than can work against hj cause her brother will not lie low. The episode 13 is without subtitles as we not Korea relieve on the sub to flow along . well good drama and the drama rating is okay
