3 Issues We Cherished & 3 Issues We Hated About The Premiere Of “The Escape Of The Seven: Resurrection”


The wait is over! “The Escape of the Seven: Resurrection” is right here. Whereas the primary season was well-liked due to its nice forged, mind-boggling story, and quite a few twists and turns, Season 2 isn’t any totally different. The second season will depict the counterattack of the seven individuals, who returned from hell, in opposition to new evil that held arms with Matthew Lee (Uhm Ki Joon). Listed below are three issues we beloved and three issues we hated about episodes 1 and a couple of of “The Escape of the Seven” Season 2.

Warning: spoilers for the premiere episodes forward!

Cherished: Da Mi’s revenge

When the primary season of “The Escape of the Seven” began, this present was marketed as a narrative a couple of woman named Bang Da Mi (Jung Lael), who was concerned within the bobble incident. Despite the fact that we didn’t know what the bobble incident was or how the primary characters had been linked to it, the Ok-drama description implied that all through this story, Da Mi can be avenged. And that’s how the Ok-drama was going till the plot derailed and have become completely about Ok and his revenge.

Nonetheless, episode 1 of Season 2 begins with a videotape of Da Mi, making it look like a promise from the creators indicating that the story is coming again to the place it began from and that she can be avenged in Season 2.

Hated: Da Mi’s speech

Within the premiere episode, we see a clip of Da Mi’s homicide. In that clip, Matthew Lee, aka Ok (Uhm Ki Joon), threatens Da Mi to kill her; he has an enormous smile on his face and is having fun with mentally torturing Da Mi earlier than killing her.

In her final second, Da Mi delivers a speech, forgiving her mom Geum Ra Hee (Hwang Jung Eum) and says she understands why Ra Hee did what she did. One of many the explanation why this speech was added may positively be to considerably redeem Ra Hee’s character as she would be the one avenging Da Mi in Season 2. Nonetheless, Ra Hee not solely deserted Da Mi when she was younger but in addition got here again years later and took her from her loving foster mother and father and used her to extract cash from Da Mi’s grandfather CEO Bang (Lee Deok Hwa). Ra Hee additionally didn’t assist Da Mi clear her identify and left her for lifeless.

When you already know all of the methods Ra Hee wronged her solely daughter, the speech appears to be coming from the author’s mouth as a substitute of Da Mi’s. Plus, there was not sufficient relationship growth between Da Mi and Ra Hee to make the speech appear real or impactful.

Cherished: Geum Ra Hee

Ra Hee just isn’t an awesome character and positively not a superb mom. She had recognized about Ok’s crime because the center of Season 1, but she nonetheless caught by his aspect. That’s why seeing her desirous to avenge Da Mi after making her life hell appeared out of character. Nonetheless, on second thought, this character change suits with the theme of “resurrection.” She has been reborn on this season and has shifted her objectives completely.

Hated: Min Do Hyuk’s newfound intelligence

Min Do Hyuk (Lee Joon), one of many solely few likable characters in “The Escape of the Seven,” returns in Season 2. Whereas his character was that of a gangster, he has in some way became a top-class hacker now.

In Season 1, there’s a flashback scene the place Ok is instructed that not solely is a gang making an attempt to recruit Do Hyuk for his unbelievable combating expertise however that he’s additionally a genius who tops each class with out even finding out a phrase. However that was years in the past when he was solely in highschool, plus he was by no means proven doing any hacking earlier than Season 1. So when did he be taught it? Did he achieve his profound hacking expertise whereas he was in a coma, or when he was recovering within the hospital? It appears fairly out of character.

Cherished: the potential for romance

“The Escape of the Seven: Resurrection” is a revenge thriller via and thru; nevertheless, a bit of romance subplot by no means hurts anybody. In final week’s episode, Ok tells Go Myung Ji (Jo Yoon Hee) and Yang Jin Mo (Yoon Jong Hoon) to get married, they usually observe his orders. Despite the fact that the wedding is pretend and exists solely to serve Ok, you can not assist however discover the potential for a superb romance subplot with the shut proximity trope, which may add to the enjoyable of the drama.

Hated: Go Myung Ji’s irresponsible parenting

Myung Ji may love her youngsters greater than something on this planet, however she is unquestionably not essentially the most accountable mother or father on the market. Although Myung Ji is aware of that her and Jin Mo’s new marriage just isn’t actual, she offers her youngsters false hope by saying that they are going to be getting a father. Youngsters being youngsters, they get excited, however even after a number of makes an attempt of getting nearer to Jin Mo, he stays distant.

Being a mother or father is among the most troublesome jobs on the market, so judging Myung Ji won’t be essentially the most humane factor to do. Nonetheless, if she explains the state of affairs a bit of bit to her younger youngsters, she will save them from heartbreak. With that being stated, with the best way Go Erica (Jung Website positioning Yeon) reminds Jin Mo of Na Han Na (Shim Ji Yoo), it’s clear that no matter the way forward for this pretend marriage, Jin Mo may grow to be a superb father determine for Go Erica and Go Phillip (San A).
