Following eight months of tense intellect online games galore, “Why Her?” has come to an stop. Oh Soo Jae (Website positioning Hyun Jin) grapples with the awful decline she endured in very last week’s episodes though Choi Tae Guk (Heo Joon Ho) ramps up his options to safe his maintain more than the nation the moment and for all. With everyone in opposition to Soo Jae, including Soo Jae herself, who will endure this closing battle? Go through on to uncover out!
Warning: point out of suicide and spoilers for episodes 15-16 underneath.
1. The disciplinary hearing versus Soo Jae
It’s almost absurd how Choi Joo Wan (Ji Seung Hyun) straight away frames Soo Jae as the explanation for the death of Choi Jae Yi (Han Joo Hyun). His daughter is hardly cold in the grave, and here he is now assigning blame. It is practically hilarious. But Choi Tae Guk runs with it and phone calls up every single prosecutor and wealthy politician he is aware of to set up a disciplinary hearing ASAP with the purpose of Soo Jae’s disbarment. It is a deluded way of displaying grief, but like father, like son. Equally males want someone to blame, and Soo Jae is a effortless thorn in their facet.
Absolutely everyone is place on digging up Soo Jae’s grime, her dealing with of previous circumstances, and something that could be utilised as ammunition versus. By natural means, they do not have to look far mainly because for all Soo Jae’s scrupulous dealing with of her situations, she was never ever the nicest lawyer all over, and there are also many folks keen to testify against her. Soo Jae is familiar with what is coming and requires a public listening to. She stoically sits as her listing of sins is read out prior to the whole country: from the way she tore Park So Younger (Hong Ji Yoon) to shreds with scarcely a handful of phrases to her dealing with of Kim Dong Gu’s (Yu Gene Woo‘s/Hwang In Yeop’s) scenario all those people several years back. And she is not the only one becoming ripped aside.
2. Director Baek’s affirmation hearing as Minister of Justice
Director Baek Jin Ki (Kim Chang Wan) has stayed silent all these decades regardless of realizing the extent of Choi Tae Guk’s crimes for one purpose: to amass electric power these kinds of that he can get justice for what occurred to his daughter. When Choi Tae Guk asks him to be certain that any enchantment Soo Jae files towards her disciplinary hearing is turned down, Director Baek easily agreed, being aware of that he will do no these kinds of factor. In return, he asks that Choi Tae Guk appear as a witness to his hearing and lie about him getting harmless of bribery. But when the confirmation listening to arrives all around (transpiring at the very same time as Soo Jae’s disciplinary listening to), Choi Tae Guk does a comprehensive 180 to confess that Director Baek did commit bribery. Worse, he suggests that Director Baek has been holding a “grudge” in opposition to him around his daughter “supposedly” remaining assaulted by Choi Tae Guk’s son and 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 performed. Choi Tae Guk laughs that he has no evidence. And Director Baek knows he’s shed. There was blood recovered from the earring observed in Han Seong Beom’s property (which was stored in a garbage bag in the walls?) Seemingly, according to the drama, it is prevalent for construction workers to retailer rubbish in the walls of a property that they’re renovating? Appears like a housing violation and fire hazard ready to come about. But minor DNA could be extracted from the bloodstain to assist determining the sexual assaulters that night time. Director Baek thinks he’s carried out for. But help comes from an surprising quarter.
3. Betrayal at the 11th hour
Ah, what would a superior legal drama finale be devoid of betrayal in the last hour? Choi Tae Guk thinks he has it created at this level. Director Baek is out of the picture, Soo Jae is on her way out of the legal occupation, and he’s about to grow to be the genuine encounter of electrical power driving the puppet leaders set to operate the country’s federal government and financial sector. He’s so cocky that he even offers his fingerprints to Soo Jae’s suitable-hand Music Mi Rin (Lee Joo Woo) though firing her. He satisfies with his extended-time period faithful secretary Ha Il Goo (Jun Jin Gi) who has just misplaced his son and orders him to take the blame for any criminal offense Soo Jae reveals in excess of the course of the hearing.
By the glance on Ha Il Goo’s encounter as Choi Tae Guk leaves, he’s last but not least hit a breaking level. So it’s no surprise to us – nevertheless definitely to Choi Tae Guk – when he demonstrates up at Soo Jae’s trial with a mountain load of evidence towards Choi Tae Guk. And what he reveals has anyone gasping.
4. How Park So Young and Jeon Na Jung died
It is wonderful to see “Why Her?” likely back again to the beginning to tie this display together. So Young’s case was the linchpin for the set of events that took Soo Jae on this path, and now we at last obtain out how she died. It turns out that she was in truth expecting with Choi Tae Guk’s boy or girl (yuck). It’s a single matter to hear it, but it is one more to see them together on the rooftop prior to her death. It’s even stranger when Choi Tae Guk is mild, even tender, with her despite the fact that she’s been blackmailing him for money so she can have an abortion and depart the place. He obviously felt anything for her, evidenced in his building anger when she consistently mocks his desire in her and asks for dollars about and in excess of.
So Young functions herself up into a mood, threatening to bounce 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 Young repeats that she desires the money. Some thing in Choi Tae Guk’s experience finally shuts down, and the hand he stretched out to assist So Young pushes her off the setting up.
So, it turns out that Ha Il Goo wasn’t at the rear of So Young’s loss of life or Jeon Na Jung’s (Hwang Ji Ah’s) possibly. Since Joo Wan and his good friends did not destroy Na Jung following all. She was alive, albeit badly injured. Choi Tae Guk discovered this when he ordered his son absent, and he couldn’t afford to pay for to have a witness. So he killed her. And Ha Il Goo recorded every thing out of fear that the deaths would be pinned on him. The hearing collapses as all the judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers at the listening to are revealed to have colluded with Choi Tae Guk to obfuscate the real truth for several, a lot of several years. The sole voice of cause is sleazy ex-Professor Seo’s ex-spouse Shim Min Joo (Lee Jin Hee) who notes that no one particular there is experienced to decide Soo Jae and that Soo Jae wouldn’t have experienced to do what she did if every person else had been upright. Choi Tae Guk watches in disbelief as his empire crumbles before his eyes. And Soo Jae last but not least smiles.
5. Choi Tae Guk’s loss of life
The up coming day, it’s a lousy time to be Choi Tae Guk. People today flee his legislation agency in droves, and his former associates fake they have almost nothing to do with him although undergoing their individual hearings for crimes. Choi Tae Guk returns to his workplace the subsequent working day and stares out of the similar window that applied to display him the land he would have entire control more than. Downing a ton of tablets, many heft doses of alcohol, and some treats, he phone calls Soo Jae, laughing bitterly that she’s the only just one who picks up.
In spite of their historical past, Soo Jae is ready to inform a little something is off when he starts off slurring. Choi Tae Guk quietly states that he is not ashamed of how he lived his lifetime and that Soo Jae hardly ever bested him. These are the very last phrases of a person who will maybe by no means recognize what he did completely wrong. And in a entire world that has only at any time rewarded his actions, it is not tough to see why. Soo Jae calls the paramedics, and that past a person-shot scene wherever Joo Wan and the medics find out a regal but dead Choi Tae Guk is probably the best scene in the overall drama due to the fact of how perfectly it is shot, panning out of the exact same window he seemed out of and that we search via in our past glimpse of him.
Afterwards, Joo Wan is remaining to decide on up the parts and operate what is still left of the law firm, but he breaks down in his father’s business office imagining him standing there. This is actually a excellent second that need to seriously have been explored previously because seeing Joo Wan imagine his father’s back again to the window, often so potent, is these types of a great depiction of this father-son relationship in which both would do nearly anything for the other. And they always did the worst things.
Gong Chan (Hwang In Yeop) and Soo Jae’s relationship settles into a healthier dynamic right after he rescued her from taking her daily life and brought her again to fight and earn in opposition to Choi Tae Guk. 6 months onward, they look pretty satisfied together. Soo Jae has started her personal law organization and proceeds to be an associate professor, imparting the relevance of not becoming a profitable attorney but a moral one particular. Choi Yoon Sang (Bae In Hyuk) barely experienced any relevant monitor time in this entire drama to the stage exactly where it was a squander of a character. He gets a hug from Soo Jae for handing around his father’s files (which he finds so conveniently that it appears to be like he could’ve accomplished it any point before). We don’t even see his reaction to his father’s demise. What a shame.
“Why Her?” wasn’t perfect and veered significantly off what its initial episodes promised, but Website positioning Hyun Jin’s and Heo Joon Ho’s powerhouse performances saved the day and manufactured the weekend that substantially additional exciting. Soo Jae continues to have serious chemistry with Yoon Se Pil (Choi Youthful Joon). Might we sometime see these two in a further drama with a enjoy line. But that is a further tale, and this just one, Soo Jae’s tale, has arrive to a sensible, gratifying stop.
The legal aid staff remains friends, and lifestyle carries on onwards for Soo Jae and Co. The darkest is driving them. Their life are now absolutely theirs. And that’s one of the far better endings a authorized thriller could get!
