Changes were aplenty yesterday as MBC East of Eden fast forwarded itself to the early 90s. The new direction in which the drama is heading into was amplified by the different style changes that each cast member had. Viewers were no doubt filled with anticipation for the future episodes.
East of Eden fast forwarded itself to 1993 as an era of change beckons with everyone getting a new style as well. But we were treated to a bit of Young Ran enjoying herself at Dong Chul’s home, being accepted by everyone, even Dong Chul’s mother. But that was until Mike’s arrival. Young Ran returns to Mike and gets married to him with Dong Chul letting Young Ran go again.
Dong Chul is now an active lobbyist with international lobbyist Janice asking for a partnership with Mr. Gook to trade weapons between America and Korea in private. Naturally, Dong Chul gets involved in the shady world of weapons trading. Dong Chul goes to America for weapons trade and meets Hye Rin by chance. After separating with Dong Wook for good, Hye Rin gets engaged to Mr. Baek for Daehan Daily survival. Hye Rin, now a reporter promises not to write about Dong Chul trading weapons if he will help her in some private matter (shipping her elder sister back to Korea secretly). Their destiny starts.
In other notable changes, Dong Wook is now working as a prosecutor/attorney in charge of special cases and takes his first step into the politics. Shin Tae Hwan ages a lot with his hair all white and with a mellowed temper. Ji Hyun just like in the past proves to be a more able person than Myung Hoon. Shin Tae Hwan is filled with trepidation after learning of Dong Wook’s new status.
Viewers expressed on the website, “The story is really getting more and more interesting”, “Really anticipate Dong Chul, Dong Wook active performance and the demise of Shin Tae Hwan”, with most curious about the future.
The preview for episode 29 is really tasty!
– Rebecca finally appears before Shin Tae Hwan and threatens him
– Mung Hoon learning the truth about his parentage?
– Young Ran is back with anger on her face!
– Dong Chul and Hye Rin knows each other even better
– Hye Rin and Ji Hyun faces off in the washroom
– Dong Wook faced with possibility of putting his brother on trial
Am glad that things are finally moving on to the next phase.
