[Pexers Write-Ups] SJT’s World : The Brilliant Sun of Bangsamtong Finale

Author:  AprilStarr

If the sun had set in the previous episode, this last episode looks at the sun shining brightly, the sun is so brilliant it is almost blinding.Yet this sun is energizing, it will allow regrowth and sustenance towards a new beginning for Bangsamtong…

The warfare between Hwangbang and Bangsamtong is entering its fierce and decisive stage. Hwangbang may have its resources and connections but Bangsamtong has Shin Jung Tae. Shin Jung Tae has Mo and Jae Hwa by his side.

The long overdue win over the excesses of the Hwangbang, according to Jung Tae, is not whether one has the best fighting skills but by determination. And so Bangsamtong utilized guerilla warfare methods- ambush of opium delivery, sabotage and sowing terror through car bombing, looting of the Hwangbang bank, and using the public wall to publicize Hwangabang’s opium trade involvement. Open fighting was still there even as they were disadvantaged by not having swords nor guns.

Jung Te did not stop there and went the political route by going to the high authorities asking that the Bangsamtong community and its people be recognized as a safety zone. It was a way of protecting them in the light of imminent start of China-Japan War. He also made sure the Chinese military authorities were alerted of Seol doo Sung’s opium activities. To increase his leverage he used the Japanese military strategy document that fell into his hands (courtesy of Gaya) to encourage the Chinese General to grant his request in behalf of Bangsamtong. Not contented, the Bangsamtong rallied in front of the office of the authorities. With persistency they won their case eventually.

Seol Dong did not take Jung Te’s actions sitting down. The concerted effort to eliminate Jung Te went on without let up and also to totally exterminate his community. The latter was a costly expedition because Wang Baek San and a score of his men lost their lives. Through all these Doo Goo remained his loyal dog.

Entrapping Jung Te and his fellow fighters, Seol Dong thought he had finally going to rid himself of them when the good Chinese general came to the scene and arrested the two men of Hwang bang and the crony Chirinbang.

Finally, tied up, tortured and in prisoner rags, the three faced Jung Te. Up to the last minute, Seol Dong refused to show remorse and acknowledge his killings that Jung Te gave him a painful jab on the face. Jung Te didn’t have to soil his hands with his blood, somebody else did it and killed the old man for his past atrocities right then and there.

The fight is still not over though the IGH had suffered a blow at the hands of the Bangsamtong. Aoki and his men as a last ditch effort to prove they are still viable marched towards the Bangsamtong claiming the place to them has some strategic value. Earlier, Gaya wanted to alert Jung Te about Aoki’s plain this but was intercepted by Aoki. Aoki then realized how much Jung Te really mean to Gaya.

It was a valiant fight that unfortunately Jae Hwa had to face alone. He sent Woo Jin to call Jung Te, but the former was intercepted by two sword wielding Japanese soldiers. Gaya’s timely arrival saved her though she pretended to stab her with her short sword.

Jae Hwa was almost a goner when Jung Tae arrived. He fought Aoki who didn’t have a chance with his superior skills and he could have dealt him a fatal blow if not for Gaya who embraced Aoki. Gaya said let’s put a stop to the fighting to which Jung Te agreed to do.

After the dust of fighting finally settled, Jung Te paid his respect to his father ‘s memorial tablet at the temple. He reported to his late father he has avenged him and donned a black hat. The hat is slightly large perhaps indicating he still has room to grow as he find his mission accomplished though a larger and broader mission is waiting for him to pursue.

Like the last man standing Jung Te bids farewell to the leaving r men of substance -Jae Hwa with Woo Jin, Mo with Pyeong, and there’s Aoki.

Mo left with a wink, maybe he is returning some day after locating his family in Dandong. Aoki wants a rematch with Jung Te who responded with a smile, a handshake and “anytime”.

Gaya, perhaps could have stayed. If only Jung Te was ready to give a response to her drop hints ” I have nowhere to return to, I’m going somewhere, anywhere”. Then she handed him a letter. The letter explained what had happened to Chung Ah.

After the car Aoki and Gaya were in drove away, a young lady appeared. No, she didn’t run to him and shouted “Oppa!”. She approached him silently -we actually don’t know what their greetings was to each other after that long turbulent decade. The camera shot gave us a distant view of Jung Tae and Chung Ah. (we didn’t get see these: Gaya embraced Jung Tae; Jung Tae had an emotional reunion with his sister and a closer shot of the two)

Chung Ah, you miss all the fun!


Thank you all for reading and commenting my reviews for the 24 episodes of Inspiring Generation. It was such an exciting experience waiting for the Wednesday and Thursday of the week. Time flew by from January to first week of April, 2014.

Aren’t we glad we were around to witness the birth of the new action star Kim Hyun Joong? If Shin Jung Te has his mission accomplished and more to come, so is Hyun Joong.

As we offer him our heartfelt congratulations, I want to wish you all safe and healthy days to come. More happy viewing of KHJ’s works …THE BEST IS YET TO COME!)
