[Pexers Write-Ups] Shin Jung Tae’s World: The Art Of War episode 22

Author:  AprilStarr

All wars need excuses and justifications. The Hwangbang and ill Gook Hwae had a long standing feud of sorts between its representatives. It is only a matter of time when a flashpoint is created. Jung tae is seen as allied with Hwangbang though ironically he personally wishes to destroy it to avenge his father’s death. He can’t do it alone nor do it in the quickest possible time. Its enemy must be used to topple the old man’s empire and end his greed and evil ways.

Fortunately for Jung Tae, the aggressive and impetuous Aoki and Gaya of IGH had been burning with desire to take over Club Shanghai. They’ll do anything to destroy Seol Doo Sung’ s stranglehold on the prized space. Aoki had dangled money and power to Jae Hwa just to get the latter’s alliance with them. It was this that triggered Jung Te to fight with Jae Hwa.

Series of previous foray of IGH if you recall include involvement in the corpse snatching, attempts on the life of Jung Te, failures of Gaya in taking over Shanghai, Aoki’s failure to get the club and brewing internal revolt indicate a weakening structure of the organization. Shinichi’s thwarted assassination mission on the life of the old man of Hwangbang was the last straw for it to demand the head of Aoki. To save himself and Gaya, Aoki’s preempted strike was to kill Denkai. If Denkai was using diplomacy in dealing with HB, Aoki is a war hawk. Jung Te knew the war between the two organizations will erupt anytime, he used their animosities for Bangsamtong’s advantage. Jung tae also extracted his “father’s” promise to return OK Ryeon to him after the war.

Wars don’t have to be executed with weapons alone. Planning with Mo, Jung Te’s best strategies include the use of deception such as false emergency calls using the telephone system to divide the deployment of the IGH’s troops, take advantage of the thinning of forces to rob its bank of gold and money, get the cooperation of the Security Director by bribing him, utilization of HB’s soldiers , and entrap Aoki by his “gift”.

All the above was in place ready for execution by the Bangsamtong team and Mo’s team , once Jung Te emerged out of the IGH headquarters.By doing so Jung Te risked his and the old man’s life when they paid respect to Denkai’s funeral. It was an entrapment to their death set up by Gaya. But Jung Te was able to skillfully defeat and kill Aka, Gaya’s personal sword man. In effect, JT fulfilled his promise to exact justice to her father’s death. Debt paid. But Gaya is becoming desperate asking Jung Te to side with them.

What happened in Shanghai was a local war between the two organizations. With the defeat of IGH, HB stands alone without a mortal enemy or so it thinks. Bangsamtong, on the other hand, has smelled victory and looking forward to the spoils of war: houses for the people and better living conditions. That is what they left Korea and what they had been fighting for not ideologies.

But wait, Jung Te is not through yet. The last battle belongs to him. But first he had to secure Ok Ryeon is out of harm’s way by proposing to her. By publicly asking endorsement from the Chirinbang for this proposal Seol Doo couldn’t refuse his request.

The happy occasion is almost perfect-the couple kissed after exchanging vows and promises amidst the applause of the visitors except there’s poison lurking around looking for its intended victim.

[Pexers Write-Ups] Shin Jung Tae’s World: The Boss episode 21

Author:  ApriStarr

Shin Jung Tae has the titles. Owner of Bangsamtong and Top Boss of Club Shanghai. The only problem is does he have what it takes to be owner and top boss? He may be the best fighter there is on that part of China, but the two titles require a lot. There are responsibilities, there are expectations and what he actually delivers.

First, was the Hwangbang -who opened the possibilities for him to occupy the positions and to be the boss. In return, Jung Tae was expected to be the HB ‘s fighting machine, to follow Banjoo’s biddings and not to be off course as the Club is Hwangbang’s territory. For added good measure HB had kept Ok Ryeon as hostage and dropped the pretension that she is their company singer. Jung Tae, for his part, has not reneged on his duties, delivered the earnings of the Club to HB though he is being held in contempt and they are always suspicious his intentions.

Second, the Bangsamtong represented by the staff of the Club expect him to protect them and make tough decisions in their behalf.

Third, Mo no matter how helpful as an ally he is to Jung Tae, still is interested on what is in it for him. JT had to reassure him he is going to make Dandong safe.

Fourth, for the Ill Gook Hwae Jung Tae is an easy target for representing Hwangbang, he frequently receives their ill will and also because as the days passes by it’s getting more difficult to defeat him.And yet Jung Tae rescued Gaya and Shinichi from the HB even as his own life was at risk.

Part of being boss is to deal with the external threats to the well being of his community, the Bangsamtong. Now is as good as any day to begin eliminating that threat. Jung Tae makes his plans with the help of his team and Mo. He inspired everyone in their pep talk/rally (or was that a master sergeant’s drill?) that what they are doing is for the improvement of their living conditions.

Jung Tae showed he is a tireless, systematic strategist for the war he saw coming. Denkai had sent an assassin(Shinichi) through the suggestion of Aoki to HB to kill the old man. The mission had failed which Aoki had taken will be used by Denkai to get rid of him and Gaya. He decided to go one step ahead and killed his benefactor. He installed Gaya as head of IGH with him as head of its military operations. Aka replaced the dead Shinichi as Gaya’s sword man (perhaps to atone for his sin as killer of her father in Shiniijoo).

Gaya now accept Jung Tae’s strength as a leader who does not bark a difficult order but does it instead, a hands on man. It was a poignant scene where Gaya wished in their next life they be born in the same country or to have nothing to do with each other. She kissed him (while Hyun Joong’s soothing voice in When Time Passes played in the background) as a way of thanking him for rescuing her and Shinichi from sure death and to say goodbye. Jung Tae closed his eyes perhaps to feel the last closeness they would ever have. She offered him deals almost pleading if only he would side with IGH. Jung Tae had to remind her the Bangsamtong had become refugees because they had ran away from the Japanese. Failing to persuade him she now finally said they belong to opposing camps.

As a boss, Jung Tae knew how to take advantage of the crisis among the main players in Shanghai, the irreparable rift between HB and IGH. Now is the time to advance the interest of BS (the Korean community) even with his group’s limitations.

My only issue with Jung tae is he is a kill joy boss, too workaholic (like somebody we know). Somebody ought to tell him he needs to loosen up and have fun with his boys and two girls.

(Note: We will explore more his exercise of leadership in the episode 22 as his plan with Mo unfolds)

  • Three guests compliment Kim Hyun Joong’s change of image to fit into the character in Inspiring Generation is very successful and the drama is a nice work. It aids in his future career path. All have good impression of him and the drama. DJ Ken asked the male guest (duno his name) as a viewer, between Kim Hyun Joong and Park Yoo Chun’s new image, which one will have an outstanding breakthrough? Guy said he will choose Kim Hyun Joong, firstly because of his hairstyle and his whole image changed for the show. He feel that for an actor to develop further he need to enter into the character and the whole feeling must follow through and not just use his own character to act. So he find that Kim Hyun Joong attracts him more. The host (in specs beside DJ Ken) also said he will also choose Kim Hyun Joong too.

Actress Kim Se Jung will be appearing in the drama “Inspiring Generation” as the younger sister that Kim Hyun Joong had been looking for and raised expectations.

On the 22nd episode of “Inspiring Generation” broadcast on March 27th, Kim Se Jung appears in the role of Shin Chung Ah that has been the object of interest and showed a plot in which they couldn’t let go of their nervousness until the end.


In the drama, Shin Jung Tae (played by Kim Hyun Joong) worked hard from when he was young to push carts to prepare the sick Chung Ah’s surgery costs and looked after his younger sibling at all costs.  When Chung Ah went lost, Jung Tae tried to find Chung Ah and wiped out all the gangs of the backstreets of Shineuiju and hearing the words of Do Koo (played by Um Tae Koo) who said that he could meet Chung Ah in Shanghai, he heads to Shanghai.

To Jung Tae, the lost sibling Chung Ah was a thorn in his art.  It’ll be interesting to see what will happen between the two people who separated while younger.

Kim Se Jung has attracted attention with the movies “The Dream of a Goose” “Ganginam” and “Friend 2”.  With sharp features and doe-like eyes, she looks similar to young Chung Ah (played by Lee Ji Woo) and will be showing great sibling chemistry with Kim Hyun Joong.
