Episode 15 – A Test For Nam-Soon
Strong Girl Nam-Soon Episode 15 opens with a jarring scene: Shi-Oh’s attack on Commissioner General Lee Jeong-Sik. The urgency is palpable as Hee-Sik and his team arrive only to find the commissioner missing, leading Hee-Sik to suspect Shi-Oh’s involvement.
Amidst this chaos, a poignant moment unfolds with Nam-Soon and her family hosting Hwa-Ja/Myung-Hee’s funeral. Geum-Ju, grappling with grief and guilt, vows vengeance against Shi-Oh, while Bong-Go’s innocent inquiry about Geum-Ju’s relationship with Bread Song lightens the mood momentarily.
Nam-Soon’s Resolve and a Cunning Plan
The narrative then shifts to Nam-Soon, who receives a worrying update about Shi-Oh’s inquiries regarding her. Her determination to confront Shi-Oh is met with her mother’s anxious advice to tread carefully. Back at the police station, Hee-Sik proposes a strategic move to pit Pavel against Shi-Oh, involving a wiretap on Shi-Oh’s secret phone. This plan sets into motion with a cleverly disguised text, drawing Shi-Oh into their trap.
In a chilling contrast, Shi-Oh is seen nonchalantly in a room with the lifeless body of Beom. His confrontation with Nam-Soon over the phone reveals his disdain for liars and refusal to engage directly. However, the detectives’ ruse works, allowing them access to Shi-Oh’s phone conversations, revealing a death order against him and his inclusion on a warrant list. Nam-Soon and Hee-Sik speculate on Shi-Oh’s potential hidden strategies in his looming battle against Pavel.
A Dangerous Exchange
Meanwhile, Geum-Ju isn’t idle. Her meeting with Gentleman uncovers evidence of Doogo’s money laundering linked to Yeom Su-San, a figure from both her and Bread Song’s past. Song’s clandestine meeting with Su-San, exchanging bags and information, hints at deeper layers of the unfolding drama.
Shi-Oh’s Desperate Moves
Shi-Oh’s call to Secretary Yoon reveals his intent to keep Dr. Choi hidden and track down Nam-Soon’s family, escalating the threat level. His negotiation with Nozh, offering Dr. Choi for Pavel’s protection, is overheard by the police, who learn of Choi’s location. Yoon’s update to Shi-Oh about Nam-Soon’s Mongolian mother adds another layer of danger to the unfolding events.
Nam-Soon’s superhuman speed is put to the test as she races to Dr. Choi’s location, with Hee-Sik following. The tension mounts as Pavel’s men arrive at the location, only to find it empty. In a twist, Nam-Soon bursts into the police station with Dr. Choi hidden in a sack of garlic, while Hee-Sik and his team arrest Doogo’s VIP clients.
Nam-Soon’s Dire Situation
The episode escalates dramatically when Shi-Oh reveals to Nam-Soon that her adoptive mother is in danger, manipulating her into a precarious situation. Despite Hee-Sik’s insistence on accompanying her, Nam-Soon decides to confront the peril alone, driven by the need to protect her mother. This decision sets the stage for a high-stakes showdown. Unable to let Nam-Soon face the danger alone, Hee-Sik, followed by Young-Tak and another officer, rushes to her aid.
The Warehouse Showdown
The climax of the episode unfolds in an abandoned warehouse, where Shi-Oh presents Nam-Soon with a harrowing choice involving a drug and a bomb.
