But good Lord, Shunji fantasizing he was torturing Kang To was beyond fucked up. The man is irredeemable and I just want him to die as slowly and painfully as possible...

Dude, episode 24 should be titled: Torture by proxy, Kimura Shunji style.

Did you see how he took out his rage on Spy Girl as well? We weren't shown that he was imagining it was Mok Dan he was dunking in the water but it was obvious he was taking his anger at Mok Dan out on spy girl.

And how bored he looked while torturing Gaksital fanboy. He must have stunted any kind of emotions or conscience so bad that he's now numb and dead inside. There are only two things that can get a rise ou of him now: Kang To/Gaksital and Mok Dan.

I think I am going to need detox before I'll be able to watch PKW in anything because right now, I just get instinctive appalled rage whenever I see him.

Yes, he was clearly taking out his anger at Mok Dan and Kang To when torturing that poor girl (who wasn't even a resistance member or a stroppy Korea Is Ours type). If somehow he got Mok Dan in some sort of relationship, he would abuse her without a doubt.

I think by now te biggest mercy Kang To or anyone else can show him is to put him down like a rabid dog. I think that must have always been in him - that psychosis - because sure the job can make you violent and dark but he has crossed any horizon of sanity and humanity a log time ago (one only needs to compare him with KT when KT was genuinely serving the empire, to see that).

Btw, the scene with fanboy and KT when the former discovered who KT was - eeeee! The look on fanboy's face was beyond priceless.

-->This! And at this point, it would really be like putting a rabid dog down.

I bet there's a Little Shunji in his brain that can only watch horrified at all the horrors Big Shunji has committed.

Kang To was wondering how the hell he was supposed to live after having shot his brother and he's found a way.

I don't think any such way exists for Shunji. The best I could hope for his character would be for him die to save someone --preferably a Joseon person unrelated to Mok Dan or Kang To so that we can get back to the roots of his character and get closure.

And yeah, the fanboy/KT scene was awesome. When KT repeated his worshiful words to confirm his identity I just about died laughing.

Speaking of Fanboy... How dumb was it of Shunji to buy what he said? It wasn't long ago that he witnessed Rebel Laby committing suicide right in front of his eyes so that they wouldn't get anything out of her. The men from DJ's Squad are supposed to be even more hardcore.

He thought that finding out KT's identity had given him the upper hand and it made him over-confident. He lost his edge. About time he got pwned too. That was very satisfying.

Yes, he definitely lost his edge - he even slipped up to both spy girl and Mok Dan that he knows KT is Gaksital (not that spy girl realized that is what he said), not to mention he forgot the cardinal rule of treating your informants well.

I like your idea of little/big Shunji - a very small part of me is still boggled that the wonderful Shunji of early eps, who stood up for his friend against his family, taught Korean children, and sold his father's sword, knowing what kind of beating he was going to get, to save his Kirean nanny, has turned into torturer, murderer and war criminal
