Right after 8 weeks of tense mind games galore, “Why Her?” has arrive to an conclude. Oh Soo Jae (Search engine marketing Hyun Jin) grapples with the horrible decline she endured in very last week’s episodes although Choi Tae Guk (Heo Joon Ho) ramps up his plans to secure his keep around the state at the time and for all. With everybody in opposition to Soo Jae, together with Soo Jae herself, who will endure this final struggle? Read on to come across out!
Warning: point out of suicide and spoilers for episodes 15-16 down below.
1. The disciplinary hearing in opposition to Soo Jae
It is nearly absurd how Choi Joo Wan (Ji Seung Hyun) straight away frames Soo Jae as the reason for the dying of Choi Jae Yi (Han Joo Hyun). His daughter is scarcely cold in the grave, and right here he is now assigning blame. It’s almost hilarious. But Choi Tae Guk operates with it and phone calls up just about every prosecutor and rich politician he is aware to set up a disciplinary listening to ASAP with the target of Soo Jae’s disbarment. It is a deluded way of demonstrating grief, but like father, like son. Each men have to have another person to blame, and Soo Jae is a easy thorn in their aspect.
Everybody is set on digging up Soo Jae’s filth, her dealing with of past scenarios, and nearly anything that could be utilised as ammunition from. Normally, they really don’t have to look far simply because for all Soo Jae’s scrupulous managing of her instances, she was under no circumstances the nicest attorney around, and there are far too a lot of individuals prepared to testify against her. Soo Jae is familiar with what is coming and needs a general public listening to. She stoically sits as her record of sins is go through out prior to the full nation: from the way she tore Park So Youthful (Hong Ji Yoon) to shreds with scarcely a couple phrases to her handling of Kim Dong Gu’s (Yu Gene Woo‘s/Hwang In Yeop’s) circumstance all those people yrs ago. And she isn’t the only a person getting ripped apart.
2. Director Baek’s affirmation listening to as Minister of Justice
Director Baek Jin Ki (Kim Chang Wan) has stayed quiet all these decades despite realizing the extent of Choi Tae Guk’s crimes for 1 purpose: to amass electricity this sort of that he can get justice for what happened to his daughter. When Choi Tae Guk asks him to make certain that any attractiveness Soo Jae files versus her disciplinary listening to is turned down, Director Baek readily agreed, knowing that he will do no these matter. In return, he asks that Choi Tae Guk surface as a witness to his hearing and lie about him getting harmless of bribery. But when the affirmation listening to comes all-around (developing at the exact time as Soo Jae’s disciplinary hearing), Choi Tae Guk does a total 180 to admit that Director Baek did commit bribery. Worse, he suggests that Director Baek has been keeping a “grudge” from him in excess of his daughter “supposedly” currently being assaulted by Choi Tae Guk’s son and all those of Assemblyman Lee In Soo (Jo Younger Jin) and CEO Han Seong Beum (Lee Kyung Younger).
Director Baek loses all awesome to roar that they are responsible and that he’ll see that justice is done. Choi Tae Guk laughs that he has no evidence. And Director Baek is familiar with he’s shed. There was blood recovered from the earring discovered in Han Seong Beom’s residence (which was stored in a garbage bag in the partitions?) Evidently, in accordance to the drama, it is prevalent for development workers to retail outlet rubbish in the walls of a household that they are renovating? Sounds like a housing violation and hearth hazard waiting around to come about. But small DNA could be extracted from the bloodstain to help pinpointing the sexual assaulters that evening. Director Baek thinks he’s performed for. But enable comes from an sudden quarter.
3. Betrayal at the 11th hour
Ah, what would a fantastic authorized drama finale be without having betrayal in the final hour? Choi Tae Guk thinks he has it produced at this issue. Director Baek is out of the photograph, Soo Jae is on her way out of the legal profession, and he’s about to develop into the correct confront of electricity behind the puppet leaders established to run the country’s authorities and financial sector. He’s so cocky that he even gives his fingerprints to Soo Jae’s proper-hand Track Mi Rin (Lee Joo Woo) while firing her. He satisfies with his long-time period trustworthy secretary Ha Il Goo (Jun Jin Gi) who has just missing his son and orders him to get the blame for any crime Soo Jae reveals more than the course of the hearing.
By the appear on Ha Il Goo’s deal with as Choi Tae Guk leaves, he’s at last hit a breaking position. So it’s no shock to us – even though unquestionably to Choi Tae Guk – when he shows up at Soo Jae’s demo with a mountain load of evidence towards Choi Tae Guk. And what he reveals has anyone gasping.
4. How Park So Youthful and Jeon Na Jung died
It’s pleasant to see “Why Her?” likely back to the commencing to tie this demonstrate collectively. So Young’s scenario was the linchpin for the established of occasions that took Soo Jae on this route, and now we last but not least find out how she died. It turns out that she was without a doubt pregnant with Choi Tae Guk’s youngster (yuck). It’s 1 factor to hear it, but it is another to see them jointly on the rooftop before her loss of life. It is even stranger when Choi Tae Guk is gentle, even tender, with her even though she’s been blackmailing him for funds so she can have an abortion and depart the nation. He obviously felt something for her, evidenced in his building anger when she regularly mocks his desire in her and asks for income more than and around.
So Youthful operates herself up into a temper, threatening to leap off the making if he does not give in. Choi Tae Guk is obviously apprehensive approaching her with pleas to get down from there, but So Youthful repeats that she wants the money. A thing in Choi Tae Guk’s deal with eventually shuts down, and the hand he stretched out to support So Younger pushes her off the setting up.
So, it turns out that Ha Il Goo wasn’t guiding So Young’s demise or Jeon Na Jung’s (Hwang Ji Ah’s) either. Due to the fact Joo Wan and his mates did not destroy Na Jung immediately after all. She was alive, albeit poorly wounded. Choi Tae Guk seen this when he ordered his son absent, and he could not pay for to have a witness. So he killed her. And Ha Il Goo recorded every thing out of worry that the fatalities would be pinned on him. The hearing collapses as all the
judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers at the hearing are revealed to have colluded with Choi Tae Guk to obfuscate the reality for a lot of, quite a few decades. The sole voice of cause is sleazy ex-Professor Seo’s ex-wife Shim Min Joo (Lee Jin Hee) who notes that no a person there is capable to choose Soo Jae and that Soo Jae would not have had to do what she did if absolutely everyone else had been upright. Choi Tae Guk watches in disbelief as his empire crumbles right before his eyes. And Soo Jae last but not least smiles.
5. Choi Tae Guk’s demise
The subsequent day, it’s a bad time to be Choi Tae Guk. Folks flee his law firm in droves, and his previous associates faux they have nothing at all to do with him though undergoing their have hearings for crimes. Choi Tae Guk returns to his business office the following day and stares out of the very same window that used to present him the land he would have finish manage in excess of. Downing a ton of products, numerous heft doses of alcoholic beverages, and some treats, he calls Soo Jae, laughing bitterly that she’s the only one who picks up.
Despite their background, Soo Jae is in a position to explain to something is off when he starts slurring. Choi Tae Guk quietly states that he is not ashamed of how he lived his lifetime and that Soo Jae in no way bested him. These are the very last phrases of a man who will potentially hardly ever understand what he did erroneous. And in a planet that has only at any time rewarded his actions, it isn’t really hard to see why. Soo Jae phone calls the paramedics, and that final a person-shot scene exactly where Joo Wan and the medics learn a regal but dead Choi Tae Guk is likely the very best scene in the entire drama due to the fact of how very well it is shot, panning out of the similar window he looked out of and that we glimpse by way of in our last glimpse of him.
Later on, Joo Wan is still left to decide up the parts and operate what is left of the regulation agency, but he breaks down in his father’s business office imagining him standing there. This is essentially a good moment that should actually have been explored before due to the fact seeing Joo Wan imagine his father’s back again to the window, always so strong, is such a fantastic depiction of this father-son romantic relationship in which the two would do anything at all for the other. And they generally did the worst matters.
Gong Chan (Hwang In Yeop) and Soo Jae’s partnership settles into a much healthier dynamic soon after he rescued her from taking her life and brought her again to fight and get towards Choi Tae Guk. 6 months onward, they look rather joyful collectively. Soo Jae has started her possess legislation company and proceeds to be an associate professor, imparting the great importance of not becoming a prosperous law firm but a moral just one. Choi Yoon Sang (Bae In Hyuk) hardly had any appropriate monitor time in this total drama to the level where by it was a waste of a character. He receives a hug from Soo Jae for handing around his father’s data files (which he finds so very easily that it appears to be like he could’ve carried out it any level before). We never even see his response to his father’s dying. What a disgrace.
“Why Her?” wasn’t great and veered much off what its initial episodes promised, but Website positioning Hyun Jin’s and Heo Joon Ho’s powerhouse performances saved the working day and manufactured the weekend that considerably far more interesting. Soo Jae continues to have really serious chemistry with Yoon Se Pil (Choi Youthful Joon). May possibly we someday see these two in yet another drama with a appreciate line. But that’s one more tale, and this one, Soo Jae’s tale, has come to a acceptable, enjoyable conclusion.
The lawful aid crew stays close friends, and lifetime proceeds onwards for Soo Jae and Co. The darkest is powering them. Their life are now fully theirs. And which is a single of the far better endings a authorized thriller could get!
