I have a feeling that the slap heard around the dramaverse at the end of episode 6 of Spy Myung Wol will be real and simply be accepted within the context of the drama. Much like Thai lakorns and their heroes with a propensity for raping the heroine before falling madly in love (yes, I do not understand either), slapping is just so oddly prevalent in K-dramas. I watched WHIB where the hero got the tar beat out of him by his father with a golf club. None of it is acceptable in real life, but in drama fiction it’s not something that sways my interest or lack thereof in the drama. I hope this drama gets its act together soon, or at least remain amusingly oddball.
Written preview for episode 7:
The unexpected leak of a love scandal between Kang Woo and Myung Wol leaves both uncomfortable with the situation, and in the end Kang Woo fires Myung Wol. Immediately upon returning home, Kang Woo feels the emptiness of his house keenly now that Myung Wol is not around, causing him to feel flustered. Furthermore, Kang Woo is starting to get annoyed with Chairman Joo constantly telling him what to do, and he also starts to get suspicious about Choi Ryu.
Ok Soon and Hee Bok find out from Myung Wol that she’s been fired, aware of how important this development is. It gets their spirits up and they decide to once again assist Myung Wol in getting closer to Kang Woo. Since Kang Woo is immune to seduction tactics and threats, Ok Soon must show her final card. On the day of Kang Woo’s showcase, Myung Wol plans to kidnap Kang Woo and waits for him in her car.
