Great Seducer Episodes 27-28

Great Seducer Episode 27

Kwon Shi Hyun (Woo Do Hwan) and Eun Tae Hee (Joy) walk away from a distraught Choi Soo Ji (Mun Ka Young). Soo Ji gets in her car and aims it at the couple. She stops before hitting them. Shi Hyun wants to confront Soo Ji but Tae Hee pulls him away.


Soo Ji drives upset. When Lee Se Joo (Kim Min Jae) happens to call he realizes Soo Ji is upset. He rushes to her side. He takes her to the trio’s hideout. Soo Ji says she’s destroyed her relationship with Shi Hyun. She asks Se Joo if he’ll desert her too. Se Joo vows to be by her side forever. A flashback shows that Se Joo saw the almost kiss between Soo Ji and Shi Hyun in high school.

Shi Hyun confronts Soo Ji’s mother about being the hit and run driver that struck Tae Hee. He asks why she lied that her mother was the hit and run driver. He guesses that Soo Ji’s mother lured his mother to drive to confront Tae Hee’s mother (his father’s lover). Soo Ji’s mother tries to deflect but Shi Hyun isn’t buying it. Little do they know that Soo Ji is eavesdropping. When Shi Hyun leaves, Soo Ji sinks to her knees floored that her mother hit Tae Hee and interfered in Shi Hyun’s parents’ marriage.

Shi Hyun gets a surprise when his grandmother’s independent DNA test reveals that his father IS his biological father. Shi Hyun cries and can’t believe that pain this misperception caused. He assumes his mother gave the false DNA test to his father to hurt him for having an affair. He tells his grandmother he’d like to study abroad to sort out what he wants to do with his life.

A moment of levity is provided when Park Hye Jung calls Soo Ji’s loser ex-boyfriend a bad dresser. He guesses the boy with her is her boyfriend. Soo Ji claims the boy is her friend. Hye Jung thanks Soo for her help. She asks if she can visit the trio’s hideout. Soo Ji says she’ll think about it.


Shi Hyun decides his first priority is to convince Tae Hee to return to her apartment. He shadows her at school and finally convinces her to come home. As they settle to sleep in their respective apartments just across the hall from each other, both think about the other.

Summary – Shi Hyun was a caring friend to Tae Hee. I’m digging his evolution.

Great Seducer Episode 28

A moment of levity is provided when Park Hye Jung man handles Soo Ji’s loser ex-boyfriend. He tattles to her mother that Hye Jung has a boyfriend. Hye Jung packs and leaves the house after her mother grounds her. She leaves a note saying her turtle better be alive when she returns.


Tae Hee’s father visits her. He asks about Shi Hyun. Tae Hee says they broke up. Tae Hee’s father ask if they fell out of love. Tae Hee denies that. Her father tells her mutual love is a precious gift that shouldn’t be tossed away.


Soo Ji cries on Se Joo’s shoulder about the trio’s fractured friendship and her unwillingness to be honest with Shi Hyun about her feelings for him. She upsets Se Joo when she says she plans to study abroad. When she says Shi Hyun is planning to study abroad too, Se Joo can’t take it.


Shi Hyun and Tae Hee spend the day together. She suggests they spend another day together and she’ll pick the activities. Shi Hyun agrees AFTER he tells her something that must be said. He tells Tae Hee to stop by his apartment when she’s ready to listen.

Se Joo returns to the hideout and stares that the bulletin board where the trio planned Shi Hyun’s relationship with Tae Hee.

Shi Hyun waits for Tae Hee, ready to tell her about the bet that started their relationship.


Se Joo calls Tae Hee and lures her with a secret about Shi Hyun. He takes her to the hideout. He shows her the bulletin board and video of the trio planning their relationship. Tae Hee is shocked.

Summary – Se Joo disappoints me, sigh.

My Thoughts

Se Joo used the bet as a weapon. I am so disappointed in Se Joo’s decision to tell Tae Hee. I assumed Soo Ji would do this not Se Joo. I get he loves Soo Ji. I get he was upset when Soo Ji said she was going to study abroad. But then Se Joo blamed it all on Shi Hyun. He went to Shi Hyun and demanded that he stay by Soo Ji’s side. That was a ridiculous request. Shi Hyun refused. Se Joo then dropped the bomb on Tae Hee about the bet.

Kwon Shi Hyun (Woo Do Hwan) spent a lovely day with Tae. I’ve been enjoying this more mature and considerate Shi Hyun. He was considerate when confronting Soo Ji’s mother about her lies. He was gentle with Tae Hee and planned a perfect day. He braced himself to reveal the bet as the initial catalyst for their involvement. Little does Shi Hyun know that his friend will stab him in the back. Shi Hyun was relieved when his Grandmother revealed his Dad was his bio-dad. I was surprised that he assumed his mother provided the false report out of spite. That isn’t her mother’s methodology but it is Soo Ji’s mother’s methodology.

Choi Soo Ji (Mun Ka Young) found out her mother was the hit and run driver. She suggested her mother go abroad with her for a fresh start. She cried to Se Joo about another man (Shi Hyun) and drove him crazy with her plans to go abroad.

Lee Se Joo (Kim Min Jae) took action to destroy Shi Hyun’s relationship with Tae Hee.  His devotion to Soo Ji and her pain over Shi Hyun was a contributing factor. But when she said she’d leave the country that was more than Se Joo could take. He implored Shi Hyun to return to Soo Ji’s side. Sadly, Shi Hyun told Se Joo those days were done. Frustrated and afraid the woman he loved would not only slip through his fingers but also leave the country ending their proximity friendship, Se Joo made the wrong choice to reveal the bet to Tae Hee. Did he edit the video to be especially damming to Shi Hyun?

Eun Tae Hee (Joy) inched closer to Shi Hyun.  Tae Hee’s father pointed out that mutual love isn’t easy to come by. Tae Hee enjoyed being with Shi Hyun. Their separation dictated by Tae Hee seemed ludicrous. Tae Hee hesitated when Se Joo offered to share a secret about Shi Hyun but she gave in to curiosity and got the rude shock that Shi Hyun manipulated her.

Ranking the episode (on a scale from 1-10) had me rank these episodes as very good. My episode ranking chart is below.

    Wow. Shi hyun’s mom. I totally get wanting to hurt an azzhat like Mr. Cheater but the one thing I’d never do is set up something that would hurt my child in the process. SMH

    And I don’t know why L’il Ms. Pyscho would be so hurt/shocked by her mom’s display of manipulation. I’m sure L’il Ms. Psycho been taking notes all these years and that’s how she learned her own evil machinations and sprouted talons of her own.

    So Se joo is another extremely damaged and cracked pot. I first noticed something off when he approached Tae Hee on the street a couple of episodes back. I was thinking “Se joo’s acting so b*tch-like to approach his friend’s girlfriend and petulantly whine to her that ‘Shi hyun always spent his birthdays with us before! So there!’ *foot stamp*”

      Learn by example – learn from seeing and from hearing and from overhearing. Soo Ji learned much from her mother.

    Like Beez, color 🖍️ me 🎊surprised🎉 Shi Hyun’s mom 😷 would do something that could be harmful to her child, especially since most Kdrama moms would do ANYTHING to ensure their child becomes the primary heir of conglomerate.

    Thank goodness granny double checked the DNA; I got the feeling granny wasn’t ready to completely cut off Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 if he was not biologically related. Unfortunately the DNA match means Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 is stuck with Seok Woo ✌️❌ as his crappy 💩 bio-dad.

    I wondered if Tae Hee 🏺 would have been alone in the parking lot if Soo Ji 👸🐝 would have restrained herself from stopping.

    “I don’t know why L’il Ms. Pyscho would be so hurt/shocked by her mom’s display of manipulation” -Beez. What do you mean Beez, Mi Ri 👩‍⚕️ was hurt/shocked at being caught in her lies about the hit-and-run 🚶‍♀️🚗; like mother, like daughter. When it comes down to it both of these women recklessly charge forward with their separate agendas; neither one of them are truly willing to take responsibility for their actions.

    It drives me cray cray that Soo Ji 👸🐝 continues to bemoan her one-sided love with Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 to Se Joo 🕶️👨, who she KNOWS is in love 💕 with her. She either has no clue how devastating her words are to Se Joo 🕶️👨 or doesn’t care as long as she can selfishly vent . . . I lean towards the latter.

    Se Joo 🕶️👨 is messed up largely due to being under Soo Ji’s 👸🐝 hegemonic spell, although his dysfunctional family doesn’t help. Ironic how Se Joo 🕶️👨 chastised Soo Ji 👸🐝 a few episodes ago about how her actions drove Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 away and then now he said she did nothing wrong❓⁉️ Which is it buddy, you cannot have it both ways❗ I’d like Soo Ji 👸🐝 and Se Joo 🕶️👨 to recognize that the Toxic ☣️ Trio emploded because Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 recognized the unhealthy nature of their relationship and quit feeding it. The Toxic ☣️ Trio may have had balance in their relationship (All Hail to the Queen Bee 👸🐝❗), but they were stagnant in their personal development and were not truly happy.

    Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 was ready to divulge the truth of the bet, but his delay (patience?) made it worse as Se Joo 🕶️👨 showing Tae Hee 🏺 the video footage of them discussing his exploitation of her was VERY DAMNING. I was disappointed to see Se Joo’s 🕶️👨 petulant side. Se Joo 🕶️👨 is apparently more comfortable in a one-sided love within the Toxic ☣️ Trio (it seems cray cray for him to demand Shi Hyun 🕺🌹 stay by the side of the woman he loves) than continuing his attempts to woo Soo Ji’s 👸🐝 heart . . . ooh that’s right, Soo Ji’s 👸🐝 problem . . . 🚫💓. Se Joo’s 🕶️👨 betrayal may be the final nail in the Toxic ☣️ Trio’s coffin ⚰️.

    Get outta Dodge (or Seoul) Shi Hyun 🕺🌹, spend time with your granny who loves you and figure out your life’s direction FAR AWAY from the Toxic ☣️ Trio. I hope Shi-Hee 🕺🏺 stays broken for a while, which may an easy task given the cataclysmic video evidence Tae Hee 🏺 viewed; Shi-Hee 🕺🏺 breaking up one episode and making up the next episode has become exhausting 😩😪😴.

      Yet they weep 😭 buckets when they perceive they’ve been wronged.

      Weeps 😭 buckets when she perceives she’s been wronged. Selfish perspective. Yet she was pleased that Park Hye Jung had a boyfriend.

      Timing is everything and it didn’t work out for Shi Hyun. His diary does indicate the intent to share the truth.

        As if someone could linger on the happy day memory after a relationship implosion 💣💥 event.

        I do believe Shi joo surprised even herself with her genuine happiness for Hye jung but I’m also sure that about 30% of that is knowing Shi joo’s ex boyfriend is being made the cuckhold. Shi joo probably couldn’t handle just pure joy with no ulterior motive behind it. I’m positive it would make her heart explode or something.

      Yup. Mi ri’s shocked and hurt because she got caught. No other real remorse. smh

      I’d give more credit to Se joo’s family for him being caught in Shi joo’s spell. All of their families is what caused them to seek solace in one another in the first place. See joo’s home life probably doesn’t seem as bad as it really is because he’s so cavalier about it.

        Good point that the pain of their families left of void that this trio filled with companionship and acceptance. Se Joo’s family belittles him and offers no warmth while his comatose mother is forgotten in a hospital. At least Si Joo’s mother is functional and Shi Hyun had warmth from his mother and has support from his Grandmother. What family member supports Se Joo?

    Yes! SH heard the entire recording and now knows SJ Mom instigated his Mother’s leaving the hospital and accident. and apparently didn’t call 911. Also gald that Soo Ji now knows the truth of her mother’s involvement in the events of that fateful night. Loved the look of shock on her face! Not surprised to find out SH really is bio son. It ws always in back of my mind that somehow DNA test was fake/tampered with. However, very surprised that SH Mom would do the fake test when she knows that info would harm SH. Seems very out of character for her since she was so devoted to SH. Although I certainly understnd her wanting to hurt the husband.

      That was a stellar moment.

      Shi Hyun’s Grandmother didn’t mess around with finding out the truth, she obtained an independent DNA test quickly!

      Seems very out of character for her since she was so devoted to SH.
      I can’t believe she’d hurt Shi Hyun.

        I think i instead better how Shi hyun’s mother did that re the DNA, but I think it may be the next two episodes that gave me that conclusion so I’ll wait to discuss it.
