'Penthouse 3: War in Life': Will Seok-kyung kill Dan-tae? Here's who might help her
Seok-kyung is determined to kill the man she thought was her father, but will she be successful?
With every passing episode, the twists and turns in 'Penthouse 3: War in Life' seem to get more intense as the plot continues to thicken. While Su-ryeon openly attempted to kill Dan-tae when she captured him and tried to run him over with a car, there is a good chance that she will attempt to kill him again and this time with the help of Logan.
Episode 8 had fans blindsided, seeing that Dan-tae (Uhm Ki-joon) and Seo-jin (Kim So-yeon) framed Su-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah) for Logan's (Park Eun-seok) injuries. The Lee family even captured her, and it seemed like Su-ryeon would now be in significant trouble. However, at the end of the episode, Logan reappears. Although he is still injured, he can walk and he and Su-ryeon finally reunite with a passionate kiss and tears. However, during this time, Dan-tae and Seo-jin are still convinced that their plan to eliminate Su-ryeon has been successful. However, Dan-tae's life is still on the line.
'Penthouse 3: War in Life' Episode 8: Fans hail Han Ji-hyun's performance as Seok-kyung
It is essential to remember that Seo-jin did inject Logan with a mystery drug. This could have been to kill him or worsen his condition when his family arrived. Another possible outcome is that the drug is a memory-altering one, similar to the type given to Eun-byeol (Choi Ye-bin).
If that's the case, Su-ryeon might have to help Logan regain his memories. But apart from her, there is now one more person who has added Dan-tae to their hit list. While nearly all the characters in the series want him dead, the latest one is none other than his daughter Seok-kyung (Han Ji-hyun).
After she was abandoned at the orphanage, Seok-kyung was convinced her father would save her. She even managed to escape until Dan-tae found her. But it is here he revealed that she was not his daughter and that she was useless to him. Seok-kyung knew her life was in danger because not only was she Su-ryeon's real daughter, but now Dan-tae would not hesitate to get rid of her.
While Su-ryeon rushed to her daughter's rescue and even beat up Dan-tae and his men, she could not reach Seok-kyung in time. She managed to escape through a window and left a message for her mother, asking her not to look for her. Seok-kyung does not have any friends and has even ruined her relationship with her brother. Wearing a disguise, she manages to flee, but the question remains -- what is her next move? The Episode 9 preview sees her on the path to her redemption, but it takes a very dark turn.
Seok-kyung is now determined to kill Dan-tae and even manages to succeed, seeing that she nearly attacks him in public. However, Dong-pil (Park Ho-san) stops her from committing the crime. Seok-kyung is then seen breaking down over everything that happens which might be a pivotal moment -- it could trigger Dong-pil to have a change of heart and finally decide to help his wife, Ma-ri (Shin Eun-kyung) and Su-ryeon to destroy Dan-tae. Although he has wanted to take his own revenge on Dan-tae, he has been waiting for the right chance, which led to his own family to avoid him, seeing that they want Dan-tae dead. But Seok-kyung's pain might remind him of his daughter's own trauma, which will encourage him to finally end Dan-tae.
