'Penthouse 3: War in Life': Did Dan-tae and Seo-jin betray each other? Episode 9 has new twist
Looks like Dan-tae and Seo-jin are only loyal to one person - themselves
When it comes to 'Penthouse 3: War in Life', one thing is for sure - you can always expect the unexpected.
In episode 8 of the series, fans finally got the moment they had all been waiting for - Logan (Park Eun-seok) and Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah) finally reunited. Although it looked as though Su-ryeon was the person behind his kidnapping and murder, the truth is that it was all a farce to throw Dan-tae (Um Ki-joon) and Seo-jin (Kim So-Yeon) off their trail.
And it looks like their plan worked smoothly because in episode 9, as per Dan-tae and Seo-jin, they both finally got rid of Su-ryeon. Dan-tae now had his hands on the Cheonsoo district, while Seo-jin had sole control of CheongA Arts Centre.
They were both quick to step into their plans and schemes as well. Seo-jin convinced the board that Su-ryeon would hurt the school and foundation because she was the alleged mastermind behind Logan's accident. The board was convinced that they could not let a criminal be the director, even though Su-ryeon is innocent. Seo-jin finally has what she always wanted, and no one is there in her way to stop her.
Meanwhile, Dan-tae tells Seok-hoon (Kim Young-Dae) that all his work is now for him and should be proud to be his son. He also agrees to hold up his end of the bargain and not harm Su-ryeon, even though he technically framed her for a crime she did not commit. What he is unaware of is that Seok-hoon's loyalty still lies with his mother. Dan-tae celebrates the start of the Cheonsoo District project by holding a big event attended by the press and other stakeholders. It all goes well until he plays a video sent in by Seo-jin that is supposed to be a congratulatory one. However, in the video, Logan's accident scene plays out, and Dan-tae is exposed for his attempted murder.
Seo-jin is also celebrating her promotion as Director of CheongA Art Centre and receives a giant painting from Dan-tae as a gift. She unveils it in front of a massive audience and media. However, the image is that of her late father with a message written in red, claiming that Seo-jin had killed him. Both Dan-tae and Seo-jin leave the venue and meet each other only to fight physically, seeing that they were both seething with rage. Fans were thrilled to see the series villains get what they deserve.
"Fake soprano Seo Jin was exposed as the responsible of her own father's death #ThePenthouse #Penthouse3Ep9," tweeted a fan. "A lovely couple is watching another lovely couple fight #PenthouseS3 #Penthouse3Ep9," added another. "Seo jin's gonna enter the walking dead world i fear #Penthouse3Ep9," joked a user, seeing that the fight between Seo-jin and Dan-tae got so ugly, that she even bit him out of sheer anger while he maintained a tight grip on her hair. "Fighting like little kids and their secretaries just standing there #Penthouse3Ep9," joked another.
While they screamed at each other, Logan and Su-ryeon were seen at a distance, observing them and planning their next move. So while it is possible that Logan and Su-ryeon exposed them, it is also likely that Seo-jin and Dan-tae betrayed each other. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
