'Penthouse 3: War in Life': Is Logan Lee alive? Fans speculate possible comeback with Yoon-hee

Fans had a had time accepting that Yoon-hee was dead, and seeing Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah) and Ro-na (Kim Hyun-soo) mourn the loss of their friend and mother, respectively, was even harder. Kim Hyun-soo performance had fans completely heartbroken, as Ro-na had an emotional outburst and lashes out against Yoon-cheol (Yoon Jong-hoon), who, unknown to her, is her biological father. 
For Su-ryeon and Ro-na, their fight now seems more complicated without Yoon-hee, but there might be hope!

It's not uncommon for the show to bring back characters that are allegedly dead, and there are a few theories out there that support the fact that Yoon-hee might be alive. One of the most apparent hints is that fans see Yoon-cheol operating on a mystery person covered in bandages. While there is speculation that this could be Logan, it could also be Yoon-hee.

Here's why -- when Seo-jin is pushing Yoon-hee off the cliff, Yoon-hee's leg is badly injured. When the police find Yoon-hee's body, they mention that there were no injuries on her. But, when we see the body, it is covered in tiny scars, none of which were present when Yoon-hee was alive. In the shot with Yoon Cheol and the mystery patient, their leg is covered in bandages. 



While there is a good chance that might be Yoon-hee, the question is who saved her and whose body was seen in the morgue? YouTuber Drama Hyung has an interesting theory, where they believe that Secretary Jo (Kim Dong Gyu) actually saved her.

He was responsible for finding the body and giving the DNA documents that Yoon-hee had to Dan-tae. He finds the body and even hands over the paper to Dan-tae, but as Drama Hyung points out, the reports are dry. If Yoon-hee had it on her, seeing that both she and her car were thrown into the water and that Secretary Jo reported immediately to Dan-Tae, the documents should have been wet or slightly damaged, at least.

As per the theory, Secretary Jo hates Dan-tae and his loyalty lies with Dong-pil (Park Ho San), who is currently out to destroy Dan-tae as well. 
He thus helps Yoon-hee just in time and saves her and uses a dummy or a different corpse to convince others that she is dead when she's actually recovering, waiting to make her appearance and take Dan-tae and Seo-jin down. 

While this theory does sound wild, season 1 and 2 has taught us that anything is possible in the series! So what do you think, is Yoon-hee alive? Did Secretary Jo save her? Is the mystery patient Logan Lee? Sound off in the comments below!
