Recap of Episode 2
The storyline of the series is in the sense of past and present, and so sometimes it gets difficult to follow. In the previous episode of the series, we got to see that our rangers were faced with a person who claimed to be searching for his father but was actually a wanted person. The wanted person used to tie ribbons and confuse the hikers that would otherwise reach the top of the mountain. The wanted person runs away when the rangers get to know about his wrong-doings.
The episode then shows the ancestral rites of the people who died in 1995 due to a natural disaster on the mountain. The story then returns to the present time, where Yi Kang asks the new ranger who joined them to build a rock arrangement that points towards Haedong Station. The episode ends with Da won looking up at a figure whose identity is not revealed.
Plot Speculations Based on Previous Episodes
The next of the series will probably tell us the identity of the person who was seen by Da won. Apart from that, we will get a lot of glimpses from the past of both Yi Kang and Hyun jo. It’s not revealed if the person Da won saw was human or ghostly. The series is building its mystery with every episode. The preview of the next episode stated about a person murdering people on the mountain.
So the third episode of the series will be packed with action, drama, mystery, and thriller.
