'Private Lives' Episode 5 Promo: Will Joo-eun find out Jeong-hwan is not dead before partnering with Bok-ki?
At the end of 'Private Lives' Episode 4, it was confirmed that Lee Jeong-hwan was not dead after all. He had been hiding at the mansion in the outskirts of Seoul where his mentor Edward Kim had been hiding. When Joo-eun had attempted to find out what really happened before the accident after being informed that Jeong-hwan had died during last week's episode, if not for him, Joo-eun would have definitely been caught by Edward Kim and not made it out in one piece. However, she is unaware that he helped her from behind the scenes. So it makes sense that she would ask her mentor and friend Hanson if Jeong-hwan was really killed.
Bok-ki also learned that Jeong-hwan or Spy Lee as she knows is not alive anymore. She believes that this is a result of her putting him on the trail of Edward Kim, a scary man who used to be her partner. She doesn't seem to know his real name or his connection to the country's biggest conglomerate -- GK Technology. However, the one thing she does seem to know for certain is the fact that she can at the moment use some help.
So, in the promo, we see her reach out to Joo-eun, and that is despite the fact that the two of them have so far been on opposing sides. Bok-ki had also sent Joo-eun to jail and Joo-eun began "shooting docu" or in layman's term, she stepped foot into the business of scamming people. So, the idea that she would even consider this option is bizarre, but Joo-eun is also desperate so she might just do the unexpected.
Of course, Hanson warns her and tells her that she might also end up just like Jeong-hwan -- which is dead -- but she doesn't seem ready to listen. She instead tells him that she is not a kid. Does this mean Joo-eun will begin investigating, looking further into Jeong-hwan and his supposed death? She had initially believed that it was not possible that Jeong-hwan was no more, however, DNA tests conducted on the remains of the body from the accident indicate that it in fact is her husband who had been killed on the day of their wedding ceremony.
In addition to this, there is also the intention of GK technology that we are curious about as well. Are they supportive of Jeong-hwan's move to fake his death or is that something that was not part of their plan? We will see a hint of this in the upcoming episode.
'Private Lives' airs on JTBC on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 pm KST and can be streamed on Netflix outside of South Korea.
