'Penthouse 3: War in Life' Episode 5: Fans go gaga over Kim Hyun-soo's performance as Ro-na
For 'Penthouse 3: War in Life' fans, this season has proved to be the most intense one yet. With Dan-tae's (Um Ki-joon) secret coming to light that he is Baek Jun-gi, a lot is at stake now, and he'll stop at nothing to eliminate anyone who stands in his path. Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah), on the other hand, after Logan's (Park Eun-seok) death, is on a warpath of her own. Among all this chaos and in the hunt for the truth, Su-ryeon realizes that there is truly only one person she trusts — Yoon-hee (Eugene).
In the previous episode, fans saw Ms Jin pushing it too far with her abuse of Eun-byeol, as she attacks her at school. Ro-na (Kim Hyun-soo) and Seok-hoon stop her and when they find out about Eun-byeol's torture and trauma, they hatch a plan to help her escape. However, Seok-kyung, who is now completely on her father Dan-tae's side, ruins their plans by informing Ms Jin.
Ms Jin kidnaps Eun-byeol and goes to Dan-tae for help. However, Yoon-hee manages to find her just in time and tries to save her. But for Dan-tae, he is now presented with the perfect opportunity to kill Yoon-hee, seeing that she knows the truth about Su-ryeon's biological child and also has access to all of Logan's money. Thus, although she manages to save Eun-byeol, she is unable to save herself. As a result, Yoon-hee dies in the episode.
Watching Yoon-hee's death and the funeral was truly hard. It was exceptionally difficult for Su-ryeon and Ro-na, as the former lost her friend and the latter lost her mother. Fans were left in shock and disbelief over her death and took to Twitter to talk about the same.
