'Vagabond' week 4 reveals president’s secretary is Shadow as Cha Dal-geon and Gi Tae-ung clash over capturing Kim Woo-ki
'Vagabond' week 4 episodes packed a lot of action especially when Gi Tae-ung and Cha Dal-geon returned to Morocco to capture Kim Woo-ki. Shadow is none other than the president's secretary of 15 years. He seems to be the brain behind the entire operation
'Vagabond' week 4 finally revealed Min Jae-sik (Jeong Man-sik) was not Shadow, the secret guy who was helping Jessica Lee (Moon Jeong-hee) of John and Park. While the episodes last week alluded to him being the one, Jae-sik was just another corrupt official who worked for money.
While the President of South Korea seemed happy to start an investigation regarding the plane crash which was a terror attack, the investigation is not going too well. Jung Kook-pyo (Baek Yoon-sik), the president, wants to sign the 10 billion-dollar deal with John and Park, because that is the best course of action for him as the acting president.
Yes, he wants to impress the public with his decision, but he doesn't want the investigation to lead to anything substantial and that is going to become a problem between Cha Dal-geon (Lee Seung-gi) and the president. While one is hell-bent on outing the truth, the other wants nothing but to cover it up.
Beyond all of this, the investigation's leader Gang Joo-cheol (Lee Ki-young) has sent Gi Tae-ung (Shin Sung-rok) and Go Hae-ri (Bae Suzy) to track where Kim Woo-ki is hiding in Morocco. Dal-geon, who learns about this from Hae-ri, follows them to Morocco and even becomes instrumental in finding Woo-ki, the co-pilot who was part of the terror attack that took place on the plane from Seoul to Morocco.
In the process, the entire team gets attacked by Jessica Lee's (Moon Jeong-hee) people and many of them even die. Dal-geon, Hae-ri and Tae-ung manage to escape with Woo-ki, however, he gets shot in the leg.
From the investigation procedure to performing a surgery on Woo-ki, Tae-ung and Dal-geon keep butting heads and this goes back to Tae-ung treating Hae-ri as nothing but a delivery girl instead of trusting her instincts and putting her to work. Dal-geon feels Tae-ung is making a huge mistake by not trusting Hae-ri and all of this plays in their relationship.
Even as the agents under Joo-cheol are working hard to find out the truth behind the plane crash, the operation is being shut down in Seoul by none other than Jae-sik who was outed as a corrupt official in the previous episodes.
He seems to be back in action mainly because of Shadow, who is pulling strings in the background. This man is none other than the president's secretary of 15 years, Yun Han-ki (Kim Min-jong). He seems to be the brain behind the entire operation, and with his power within the Blue House, it is uncertain how Tae-ung, Dal-geon and Hae-ri will bring the truth to the fore.
The next two episodes of 'Vagabond' will air on Friday and Saturday on tvN at 10 p.m. KST (9 am.. ET) and can be streamed on Netflix.
