'Flower of Evil' Episode 7 Preview: Promo shows Ji-won's husband shocked by her promise to catch Hyun-soo
'Flower of Evil' Episode 7 sees Ji-won dig deeper into her husband's background now that she has learned that he is not the real Baek Hee-sung, but is the son of a serial killer
'Flower of Evil' Episode 7 will see how Hyun-soo (Lee Joon-gi), living as Baek Hee-sung will react to his wife, Detective Ji-won (Moon Chae-won) belonging to the police force hunting him down. In the previous episode, after almost drowning, Hyun-soo had under the influence of anesthesia and drugs confessed that he was Hyun-soo. He had believed that he was talking to his sister, but it was in fact his wife Ji-won. This has now led to Ji-won investigating her husband to find some shocking details. She did decide that she will only believe hard evidence and not be influenced by the prejudice of people against Hyun-soo's medical condition.
However, will she be able to keep her promise after seeing traces of blood in the basement of Hyun-soo's workshop? Hyun-soo has Antisocial Personality Disorder and over the years, he had trained himself to fit better into society to avoid the kind of attention that he had received in the past while he had still lived as Hyun-soo. Ji-won is sure that her husband is not a psychopath, and she comes to that conclusion because of the way he had loved his daughter and had taken care of a puppy for more than 10 years. She explains that people who are diagnosed as psychopaths are unable to protect something weaker than them.
So in the promo of the upcoming episode of 'Flower of Evil' what we see instead is Ji-won attempting to find the truth about Hyun-soo, the crimes that he had actually committed versus the crimes that he had been accused of committing or has been rumored to have committed as a result of prejudice against his personality disorder. First, she begins to trace the timeline of when he had begun to actually live as Hee-seong, tries to understand why Hee-seong's parents had played along with Hyun-soo's facade for this long.
When Hyun-soo wonders why she is so dead set on this case, Ji-won answers that she will catch Hyun-soo. She had promised in the previous episode that he would catch Hyun-soo and ensure that he receives the punishment that he deserves. This could be her way of finding the truth about what really happened in the past and dispelling all the rumors that surround Hyun-soo, but we will not know her intentions until we watch the upcoming episode.
Meanwhile, we also have reporter Moo-jin who until the last episode had been collaborating with Hyun-soo is keeping his identity a secret. It seems like after speaking to a witness from years ago, Moo-jin has changed his opinion about Hyun-soo not being a part of the crimes his father committed. The witness has a recording of a threat that she had received years ago, which tells her to be careful to ensure that the same thing that happened to Hyun-soo's chief of the village doesn't happen to her.
At this time, it was widely believed that Hyun-soo was the one to have killed the chief of the village. When Hyun-soo had reconnected with Moo-jin, Hyun-soo had confessed about killing the man too, and we had seen hints of self-defense being the reason in a flashback. However, doubts have resurfaced as in the promo, Moo-jin goes on live tv to show proof to his speculation of how Hyun-soo could have been his father's accomplice. The recording serves against Hyun-soo but we also see Hyun-soo tell Moo-jin that he should trust his former classmate.
It looks like Hyun-soo is going to be hunted and as he gets cornered again, we will see how he manages to prove his innocence.
'Flower of Evil' will air on tvN on Wednesday and Thursday at 10.50 pm KST and can be streamed on Viki Global.
