'Penthouse 3: War in Life': Are Dan-tae and Yoon-hee siblings? Mystery connection revealed
While Su-ryeon nearly kills Dan-tae, a flashback of his childhood brings up a familiar name
If you've been waiting patiently for Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-Ah) to finally get her revenge on 'Penthouse 3: War in Life', then episode seven delivers.
After losing her lover and her friend, Su-ryeon has been out for Dan-tae's (Uhm Ki-Joon) blood this season. Having given up hope on the justice system, she has decided to take matters into her own hands, and things are about to get messy! If you're looking for other engaging K-drama titles to check out, you might want to consider 'Mad for Each Other,' 'Nevertheless,' and 'Mine'.
With Ma-ri (Shin Eun-Kyung) on her side, Su-ryeon begins to expose the corruption racket carried out by Dan-tae concerning his Cheonsoo district project. After it's exposed that he has bribed people, Dan-tae loses money from his investors.
In a desperate attempt, he approaches the chairwoman of Haeyeon Industries, asking for money; she agrees to give it to him, but what he doesn't know is that she is working with Su-ryeon. It's here that Su-ryeon corners him, and without Secretary Jo (Kim Dong-Kyu) to protect him, she beats him up and knocks him unconscious.
When he finally wakes up, Dan-tae is bleeding badly and is tied up. He soon realises that a car is approaching him at a shocking speed. With Su-ryeon behind the wheel, she is fully prepared to end his life.
Fans were thrilled to see this villain finally get the ending he deserved. "The queen is savage #Penthouse3Ep7 #PenthouseS3ep7," tweeted a fan. "THIS IS WHAT YOU GET BY MESSING WITH OUR QUEEN. SENDING YOU TO HELL IS NEXT #Penthouse3Ep7 #PenthouseS3Ep7," added another fan. "Dan tae being like a kicked like a ball #penthouse3 #penthouse3ep7 #penthouses3ep7," pointed out a third. "DESTROY HIM YES DESTROY HIM!!!!! #Penthouse3Ep7 #PenthouseS3Ep7," tweeted a user.
While watching Su-ryeon get her revenge was entertaining, the episode did get into a vital backstory regarding Dan-tae. While fans know his real identity is Joon-ki, they also got a glimpse of his childhood. His family, who were poor squatters, were attacked by real estate sharks who were encroaching on land at night. Dan-tae barely escaped, but his mother was not so lucky, seeing that their makeshift hut was destroyed by construction machinery, while his sister and mother were still inside. In his mother's dying moments, she told him to become rich and successful. It's unclear if his sister died as well; however, there is a bit of information that seems fishy - in the flashback, he calls out to his sister while trying to save her and says her name, which is 'Yoon-hee'. This instantly had fans wondering if his sister was, in fact, Yoon-hee (Eugene) herself. This would definitely complicate things, seeing that he is responsible for Yoon-hee's death.
"Ok so this is how joo dantae's mother and his sister died and the reason behind his trauma of blood #Penthouses3Ep7," asked a fan. "SO YOONHEE IS DANTE’s LITTLE SISTER . WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK #PenthouseS3Ep7," tweeted another. "WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN JDT AND YOONHEE ARE SIBLINGS?! IF JDT WAS MY BROTHER I WOULD BE SO DISGUSTED OMG KSJDKS MAN SHIT IS WILD IN PENTHOUSE WRITERS BRAINS, THEY BE MAKING UP SHITTY PLOTS ATP WTF #Penthouse3Ep7 #PenthouseS3Ep7," said a fan.
"WAIT IF DANTAE AND YOONHEE ARE SIBLINGS THEN SEOKRONA ARE COUSINS??? IDK WHAT THE F--K #PenthouseS3ep7," added another. While it sounds like a wild possibility, we wouldn't rule it out entirely, seeing that it is 'Penthouse 3: War in Life', a series known for it's crazy twists and plot lines.
