Man to Man: 6

This episode mostly focused on Do Ha’s relationships, especially with her dad and Seol Woo. I for one, have not fully connected to Do Ha’s character. Her character just isn’t relatable to me. Although she has notable quotes, her character hasn’t tugged my heartstrings yet. She hasn’t done anything heroic or suspicious to get me interested. But, regardless, this was her highlight episode.

I suppose it’s okay to take a little break from the action and suspense while the baddies figure out how to be – well, baddies. I’m a little disappointed that six episodes in, they’re still not showing might and brute force. They’re just having brooding moments and meetings. There’s not much for Seol Woo to do as a ghost agent, if there’s no group to have action scenes with. Then again, I can’t have action scenes all the time, can I?

I already know her genuine relationship that she shares with Un Gwang, so it’s nice to see her outside her comfort zone and watch her react to her dad being back in her life, and Seol Woo creeping up in her heart – at the same time. So far, Do Ha’s handling it okay. She had the courage to actually tell him how she feels, and she let Seol Woo in on her family history.

I’m still weary about Myung Suk. Although he seems to have the right mindset, he could still play on the wrong side of the court just to get some quick cash. That is what I’m worried about. I’d hate to see the day where Seol Woo has to choose between him and Do Ha. I do hope that Myung Suk’s character is written as a good guy who just makes bad choices. If so, the Seol Woo can fix or avoid those mistakes.

Seol Woo has entered uncharted territories. Although he doesn’t know it yet, he’s already smitten with Do Ha. He thinks this is part of his plan, well – he’s wrong. I’ll admit it, I’m curious as to how this will affect Seol Woo in the next episodes. Will he reveal his true feelings? What are those feelings? It can’t be love this soon in the series though.

Man To Man: 4


I said last time that if Do Ha’s dad shows up again and says something vague, it means that Do Ha’s character is more than Seol Woo’s love interest. Well, he showed up in this episode, and asked if she still has the “gift” he gave her. Pretty good to have written a future mission for Seol Woo, and Do Ha will be his target, I would say. This will complicate things a tad bit for Seol Woo, and I can’t wait. As far as her dad’s character goes, I’m sure he’ll help in complicating things for everyone involved. Not a matter of if, but when.


It looks like Seol Woo will have time to fall in love because our baddies are busy playing double cross, It looks like they each have a role as a “team”, but each member has a different goal. Seung Jae’s goal is to get his father’s dirty money, and he is looking more like ghost money to Assemblyman Baek.  Assemblyman Baek seems to be a mastermind playing puppet, and we have an actual ghost agent who hasn’t done any of the dirty work yet. Meaning, they’re nowhere in this show, which is not good if we have a secret agent that lives for a mission.


I feel bad for Do Ha who’s confused at Seol Woo’s advances, then gets let down in a shocking way. That’s a big eye opener for a woman who’s been told somewhat of the truth. I feel for her though, a lot has happened to her since she met Seol Woo, dealing with Un Gwang’s accident, and her dad showing up all at the same time.


I know it’s Seol Woo’s tactic in order to accomplish his mission. He is still the same using logic and assessing every situation and reacts according to that. Seol Woo “wooing” Do Ha wasn’t part of his plan to begin with. In fact, I didn’t see that he tried to charm her at all. In the end, he must’ve been “What the heck, my mission is over anyway, so yeah let’s just tell her what she doesn’t want to hear, not thinking it’ll backfire. I think this is where he’ll reach a realization that he’s never experienced this before, and that’s where the “comedic” turn of events will ensue. I just think he went a little bit farther than what a car explosion. Maybe it’s just me, but I did see a pang of guilt when he was walking away compared to the woman he left behind in the first episode.


The show is stepping up on the action/suspense aspect, which I’m not going to get into detail. The action is there, but I want more. I think I’m going to keep saying this in every post. They spoiled me in episode 2, and I want to see more action scenes like that. They’ve been setting up the loveline between Seol Woo, and Do Ha. As far as the romance goes, I don’t see any chemistry suggesting that they’ve developed mutual feelings for each other outside the professional realm yet, I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Seol Woo was a teeny tiny bit attracted to Do Ha in the last episode, but kept it at bay because he’s on a mission.
