"Remember" Episode 16

"Remember" Episode 16

Dong-ho, having finally quit his position as Gyoo-man's scumbag lawyer, finds some difficulty here in making amends and getting back on the right side. Personally I'm surprised anyone in Jin-woo's firm is willing to entertain the prospect of Dong-ho's helping at all. Yeah, we know that Dong-ho has meant well this whole time. But it's not like Jin-woo had any way of being aware of this save for the occasional oblique hint.

Then again"Remember"doesn't spend that much time on this particular character arc so I'm not going to bother with it either. Instead, we get evidence not being suppressed but rather just being given time to stew around for awhile. The corporate conspiracy is at its weakest here. Because Gyoo-man didn't bother to hire goons for his five months ago evil act, Il-ho has to improvise a plan on the spot. Consequently the legal arguments defending Gyoo-man are so unimpressive most characters can't even pretend to believe them.

There is the usual intimidation and hired murder, but luckily Jin-woo and team have finally wised on to the fact that the corporate conspiracy is a pony of few tricks, and successfully foil the dastardly deeds of the villains by...following the connected persons around long enough to make sure they don't get murdered somehow. It's so simple and ingenious I wonder why they didn't think of it earlier.

Oh, right, it wasn't time for the drama to start closing down yet. Ho hum. Anyway, in terms of objective merits this episode is good as usual. I have to admit I'm impressed by how well the whole rape storyline has been handled. Even absent the wackier story elements of"Remember", the consequences for a victim trying to push a rape prosecution are well-documented, and the cafe scenes make for a sweet piece of sisterly understanding.

The brotherly love is no slouch either. I did have to keep reminding myself, though, that the guy whose character arc we're supposed to be sympathizing with is a gangster. A guy who has almost certainly killed mostly innocent people before, so he comes off as a bit of a crocodile for having moral issues regarding Dong-ho specifically. I mean what, this life only matters because you know the guy personally? I was also momentarily baffled by what happened after Dong-ho left the car, but to be fair, by the time we get to the cliffhanger the actions of the masked man make a lot more sense.
