Moving Korean Drama Review: Episode 14-15

EPISODE 14 – The Idiot

Episode 14 of Disney+’s Korean drama Moving opens with Ju-Won and his young daughter Hui-Soo coming home after the funeral of Ji-Hee, his late wife. Ju-Won informs his boss Yong-Jun that he’ll be taking a step back from his covert operations team, the Black team, to focus on his daughter. Although puzzled, Yong-Jun reluctantly agrees but warns Ju-Won that he’s still on call for emergencies.

Meanwhile, we’re transported back to the summer of 2003 in Cheonggyecheon, where we meet Lee Jae-Man, a devoted husband and father.

Despite the looming threat of redevelopment in Cheonggyecheon, Jae-Man’s wife Yoon-Young advises him to steer clear of protests and focus on their family.

Fatherhood isn’t easy

Jae-Man’s commitment to his family is evident. He’s particularly attentive to his son, Gang-Hoon, even going as far as buying matching T-shirts for them. However, this devotion stems from a past incident where Jae-Man was arrested for defending Yoon-Young, leaving Gang-Hoon in a dangerous situation.

Back in the present, Ju-Won is juggling the responsibilities of single fatherhood and his demanding job. He even hires a nanny help to look after Hui-Soo when work keeps him late. However, he finds himself torn between his duties as a father and his obligations at work.

As tensions rise in Cheonggyecheon over redevelopment, Jae-Man’s wife Yoon-Young decides to represent their family at the protests, leaving Jae-Man to care for Gang-Hoon. Unbeknownst to Jae-Man, the protest turns violent, leading to Yoon-Young’s arrest. In a desperate attempt to save her, Jae-Man reveals his supernatural abilities, shocking everyone.

Following this incident, Yong-Jun contacts Ju-Won about a “monster” sighting, forcing Ju-Won to leave Hui-Soo and attend to the situation. Meanwhile, Jae-Man’s neighbour’s son, Sung-Woo, falls into a sewer while trying to free his pet fish.


Ju-Won finds Jae-Man in the sewer and tries to convince him to give himself up. Je-man who promised Gang-Hoon he would be back home soon refuses. This leads to a brutal fight between him and Ju-Won. The fight finally ends when Ju-Won knocks Jae-man out. As he is leaving, he hears Sung-Woo’s cries and works together with Jae-Man to rescue him.

Ju-Won returns from the sewers cradling the young boy in his arms as they hurry to get him medical attention. When Yong-Jun inquires about Jae-Man, Ju-Won tells him that he’s gone back home to fulfil a promise to his son. Sceptical of Ju-Won’s judgment, Yong-Jun berates him for seemingly disregarding orders and labels him a fool.

Ju-Won’s most precious treasure

They proceed to Jae-Man’s residence and find, to their astonishment, that he has indeed returned home. Gang-Hoon, visibly frightened yet relieved, welcomes his father back. However, their heartfelt reunion is abruptly interrupted when armed police officers storm into the house. Yong-Jun dismisses Jae-Man as worthless and starts to exit the premises. Just then, officers are hurled out of the house, leading Yong-Jun to assume that Jae-Man is responsible. Ju-Won rushes back inside, only to discover that it’s actually Gang-Hoon who’s confronting the police. Jae-Man is desperately trying to pacify his son, pleading with him to cease his actions.

It’s at this juncture that Yong-Jun realizes that abilities can be transferred between generations. A sly grin crosses his face as he instructs Ju-won to handle the situation. Contrarily, Ju-Won wears a sombre expression, struck by a newfound understanding. He returns home, gathers Hui-Soo, and abandons his former life. As he departs, he reflects that although he’s leaving everything else behind, he’s taking with him his most precious treasure—Hui-Soo.
