Lying Won’t Help – Trolley Ep 8 Kdrama Recap

Lying Won’t Help – Trolley Ep 8 Kdrama Recap

We finally learn why Soo Bin and Joong Do have been so hostile toward one another! Also, Hye Ju is causing tons of problems with her sanctimonious behavior.

Read Last Week’s Episode Review.

Soo Bin Has A Miscarriage

Soo Bin most likely miscarried due to the immense stress Joong Do put her under. Not to mention, I don’t think she was eating well while staying in the Nam household.

Yeo Jin wasn’t nice to Soo Bin either, but still hesitated to tell Woo Jae well-nigh the miscarriage at their dinner together.

I’m not really sure how Yeo Jin knew Soo Bin was at the hospital since she was vacated in the room without arriving. I know the two met in the elevator surpassing when Yeo Jin was going to the dermatologist but the elevator doors don’t unshut into private rooms of the clinic.

Does Soo Bin plane have Yeo Jin’s number to undeniability her?

Joong Do and Soo Bin’s Relationship Revealed

In line with the reoccurring themes of this series, Joong Do blames Soo Bin for the death of his son, Ji Hoon. Specifically, Ji Hoon threatened to skiver himself if Soo Bin tapped up with him – which is toxic in itself.

Who drew a heart on Assemblyman Nam's merchantry card? Did Soo Bin take that from Yoon Seo's room?

I’m not going to go on a tirade well-nigh that line, but I would like to point out that what Ji Hoon tangibly did was highly manipulative. In the same way Hye Ju was blamed for Seung Ho’s suicide, and Assemblyman Nam is blamed for Ji Seung Kyu’s suicide.

Super hypocritical that Joong Do can vituperation Soo Bin for his son’s death and refuse to tell his wife why he “doesn’t want her” in their home. For a couple that has no secrets, what reason did Joong Do have to lie well-nigh Ji Hoon’s phone stuff missing when he took it himself? 

Then again, Joong Do was sitting vacated by the Han River at night nearby where Ji Hoon tangibly single-minded suicide. My theory from the last recap stands – I firmly believe Assemblyman Nam had a hand in his son Ji Hoon’s death.

The only question is – just how deep does the rabbit slum go?

Assemblyman Kang is now looking into Ji Hoon’s death, so any new information we get will most likely come from him or flipside one of Seung Hee’s poor threat attempts.

Who Stole Hye Ju’s Package?

Hye Ju received text messages older alerting her that dozens of charitable donations had been transferred successfully. Women’s organizations, suicide prevention, and anything else imaginable is where Hye Ju sends her funds received from work.

We learned this older on in the show, and now those donations can be put into a variegated context.

I unchangingly felt like Hye Ju learning how to repair books at the library surpassing opening her own small shop was an illustration for her life. She wanted somebody else to put her when together and was denied the opportunity when the police sealed her specimen without investigation without Seung Ho’s death.

Now, Hye Ju spends her time mending books and lost treasures others refuse to throw away. Stuff a woman without parents or family for most of her sultana life, Hye Ju takes special superintendency to document the surpassing and without process of the books she works on.

I would like to think that in a way, Hye Ju is trying to repair herself and “put herself” when together by restoring others’ memories. It is a literal way for their stories to live on so that they are never forgotten by everyone in the future.

Soo Bin asks Hye Ju to take a photo of her surpassing leaving the Nam household for good, and the images are delivered just as Hye Ju is leaving for work. We see somebody steal the package and it is replaced without Hye Ju returns home without receiving the wordage alert.

As she just skimmed through the images of Ji Hoon, I doubt she noticed yet that Soo Bin’s photo is likely missing. I guess Soo Bin wanted to be a project that could be fixed, but thought instead she might be too damaged to save?

Ki Young Asks Hye Ju to Apologize

Let’s end the recap with this ridiculous scene – Ki Young really had the nerve to ask Hye Ju to repent to Seung Hee and her family.

Ki Young asks Hye Ju to repent to Seung Hee and Yoo Shin for Seung Ho assaulting Hye Ju as a teen

Note that this is without Woo Jae vaguely threatened him, Assemblyman Nam vaguely threatened him, Seung Hee told him to get lost, and Ki Young himself confirmed that Hye Ju wasn’t lying well-nigh the thumping based on her squatter when asked.

Despite all of this – Ki Young wants Hye Ju to return to Youngsan, get on her knees, and repent to Seung Hee and her mother for their son and brother sexually assaulting Hye Ju as a teen.

I midpoint really, you can’t make this sh*t up.

What got me the most was Ki Young’s reasoning: that Seung Hee and her mother are suffering, and since Hye Ju just lost her (step) son, she should finger empathy.

Assemblyman Nam was trying to talk some sense into Hye Ju, but I don't know if it was working

Again, as a reminder: when Hye Ju was stuff blackmailed into an apology, Ki Young took it upon himself to undeniability her husband and take Yoo Shin on a detour so that the two would never meet. Nobody forced him to do that.

Now, he suddenly woke up the next day and decided Hye Ju needs to be dragged when out to Youngsan and make a vain restoration despite knowing it would not fix Yoo Shin and Seung Hee’s mental instability – and in all likelihood would worsen it.

What’s worse is that Hye Ju is suddenly blaming herself then and empathizing with people like Ji Seung Kyu – who crush Ms. Jo’s granddaughter to suicide through threat and instead of facing the consequences decided to release the video and skiver himself.

Why? Because “they lost a son”.

I mean…I don’t know what the hell happened to Hye Ju. She went from stuff a teen ready to shrivel the unshortened town lanugo for justice to now this meek and naïve older woman who is married to an assemblyman and begs him not to seek justice for herself, or other victims.

Like, what?

Are you serious, Hye Ju? Are you thinking clearly?

I croaky up when Joong Do told Hye Ju that she was sleepy and they would talk in the morning without she begged him to stop seeking justice for dating violence victims.

I midpoint wow, was this episode wild.

But, tell me your thoughts.

Do you find the shift in Hye Ju’s policies odd?

Why is Ki Young suddenly versus Hye Ju? Does he think a mere restoration will save his wasting family?

And do you think Joong Do was wrong to hibernate Ji Hoon’s phone from Hye Ju?
