    ▲ From episode 13 of “The Slingshot”

    Infuriated by the sudden death of the Myeong City mayor, Kim Shin rushes at Chae Do-woo, who is in the middle of an investor briefing, and the two end up in a fierce fight. Later, Do-woo learns that it was his assistant, Kay (played by Heo Wook) who killed the mayor without his permission. But despite his anger, he tries to cremate the mayor’s body as soon as possible before the truth is discovered. However, Kim Shin is sure that the mayor was murdered, and with the help of a local detective, he eventually carries out an autopsy to secure evidence despite Do-woo’s efforts to hamper him.

    Prior to the autopsy, Kim Shin says the mayor was the first person ever to earn his respect. Hearing the results of the autopsy, his exasperation peaks. The mental and physical showdown between Kim Shin and Chae Do-woo adds intensity to the drama. In this episode, Eun-soo (played by Han Yeo-woon) urges Do-woo to act discreetly because he is also guilty and deserves to be hit once. Her remark arouses curiosity in Kyung-ah (played by Park Shi-yeon). Meanwhile, Kim Shin receives a call from Chairman Chae (played by Chang Hang-seon), who helps him meet with Do-woo’s psychiatrist. Kim Shin learns from the psychiatrist that Do-woo is a psychopath who has no feelings whatsoever.

    Viewers lauded Park Yong-ha and Kim Kang-woo for their impressive acting in their fight scene. They are watching closely how the “war” between the “dream team” led by Kim Shin and the psychopath Chae Do-woo will end.
