'The Uncanny Counter' Episode 3: Ha-na 'sees' Su-man's accident was an attack, freaks out when he is attacked
'The Uncanny Counter' in its third episode will see Ha-na read Su-man's memories and find out that the accident that he was in as a child was really a murder attempt
'The Uncanny Counter' based on the webcomic named 'Amazing Rumor' or 'Kyeongirowoon Somoon' in its third episode will see Ms Chu, Mo-tak (Yu Jun-sang) and Ha-na (Kim Se-jeong) include Su-man (Jo Byeong-gyu) in their evil spirit hunting plan and it doesn't seem to go too well. Until the last week, there was not much that we saw Su-man do except training hard and getting beaten up by Ha-na and Mo-tak. He trained continually and now that his leg has been healed by Ms Chu, he has no obstacles in his path. So he concentrates on building up his own strength and all of this we think would probably come to use when he actually begins to fight an evil spirit.
However, from the looks of it, this might just not be the case. We see in the promo of episode 3 that Su-man ends up facing an evil spirit that is too strong for him. The evil spirit ends up gaining strength after the disappearance of the magic field that usually helps the grimreapers and that is what Ha-na sees in her vision as well. She is the one who usually is capable of registering the presence of such evil spirits and she gets glimpses of who they are, what they do when they are in a human body.
One such glimpse shows Su-man in trouble. Despite Ms Chu, Mo-tak and Ha-na telling him to be careful and telling him to not head out alone while hunting evil spirits, somehow, Su-man seems to be caught alone. We also hear him ask for his teammates' help as all of them are headed towards where Su-man is located. However, the question is if they will arrive on time to save Su-man or if they will lose another member of their team.
It is before all of this that Ha-na, who is an expert in reading memories of others, finds out the truth about Su-man's accident. She realizes after reading his memories that he had seen the murderer walk close by to the car that he, his mother and father were in to check if his father had died. It was clear that his father and his father's friends were both targetted as we had seen at the beginning of the first episode. Also, there is a connection between Mo-tak and Su-man's father's friend who had fallen from a high-rise building and transported to a hospital later too. So all of this will unravel over the episodes and it would be interesting to see the pieces of the puzzle fit.
'The Uncanny Counter' episodes will air on OCN on Saturdays and Sundays at 10.30 pm KST in Seoul and can be streamed on Netflix in the US.
