With Episode 9 of the k-drama ‘Chimera’ on the way, the show has been seeing an increase in the ratings. The viewership rose to a nationwide average of 1.6 percent after the release of the previous episode. As the show has marked it half, another twist is out in the open. With the Chimera behind the ongoing explosive murders exposing himself to media. Hyo Kyung is now looking into both cases and even asking the detectives to join her. While she’s being told by her boss to not invite trouble by bringing their advertisers in. The trouble might be coming in itself, considering things are opening up again.
Till now, the Chimera has killed two other people after Yong Bok, blasting Seoryoen Group’s new headquarters. As Eugene and Jae Hwan were brainstorming, he suggested that whoever was behind all the explosions must be related to Lee Sang Woo. Looking at the fact that all the victims were related to the 35-year-old Chimera case. Implying that someone wants to take revenge for framing Lee Sang Woo and his death. Since his suicide note seemed fabricated and there were no other witnesses or even an autopsy report. After Yong Bok’s case blew up on the news, Jae Hwan told Gwang Soo that Yong Bok used to be a detective on the Chimera case.
The Friends In Fear
Looking at Yong Bok melting to his death in hospital, Seung Hwan was left in shock and fear. When he went to see him and asked him about the explosion. Yong Bok told him that ‘he’ was back to kill all of them. Joining Gwang Soo to the KCSI for the bomb analysis, they got to know it was white phosphorus. The chemical was used to make the self-ignite matches. The chemical is only for military use and can burn the skin to the core. He went on to meet and warn Hyun Tae and Min Ki about what might be awaiting them. While they think Joong Yeop might be behind the murders, they aren’t really sure themselves. While Min-Ki suggested that they should chase him away by canceling the contract.
They don’t have any solid proof to send him away without getting themselves in trouble since Joong Yeop belongs to Hwa Jung’s special team. Deciding to meet Lee Joong Yeop himself, Hyun Tae told his friends to calm down. On the way back home, Hyun Tae thought about the time when Sang Woo threatened to put himself on fire when he fired him from his job and fought him to take him back. When the night came, Joong Yeop joined the couple for dinner. Hyun Tae asked him about his family and friends in Korea, but he said that he was alone. Asking about his father, he told him that his father worked in a chemical factory, and he was fired when the factory went big. Even though he fought back but it didn’t do him any good.
But Joong Yeop Might Not Be The New Chimera
Joong Yeop was drinking with Hyung Guk, his father’s only friend who believed he was innocent. Hyung Guk told him to go back to the UK as these people will never own their mistakes. Telling him more about his father, about how he got into law school but couldn’t afford to attend. And if only he would’ve been a bit selfish, his life would’ve been different. All Joong Yeop wants to do is find the real culprit behind the old Chimera case and clear his father’s name. But Hyung Guk isn’t ready and tells him not to waste time on these people. Later on, He showed up to another lecture that Eugene was presenting. Walking out together, as she asked Joong Yeop if he’s going to attend all his lectures. He told her that he is just looking for a friend. Asking him to open up, Joong Yeop told her that he is looking for answers, but people who know the answers are dying one by one.
The new headquarters of the Seoryeon Group got their usual water delivery. But a few minutes later, the bottle blasted, lighting up the whole office on fire. And as soon as that happened, a person called UBS channel and claimed to be Chimera. The special unit was trying to get all the information out. The analysis reports suggested that the explosion happened because of gasoline, but there was no source of ignition. They did find something odd at the site, some tape, cellophane paper with traces of sulfuric acid. Showing the results to Eugene, she suggested that it might’ve delayed the explosion. They also found a chimera lighter but at a distance from the headquarters.
As the special unit was in a meeting, Eugene suggested that since Chimera came out himself, they need to focus on the Seoryeon group as they might have a connection. Talking about the lighter, she called that a logo for a brand, but this time he exposed himself. Jae Hwan went on to meet Seo Hyun Tae and told him not to attend many public events. But Hyun Tae just hit back at them, telling them to ensure public safety. As Gun Young asked him if has noticed anything strange, Hyung Tae couldn’t think of anything. They left, telling him to report if he sees anything wrong.
Hyo Kyung managed to get Eugene to a radio show to talk about Chimera. Hyo Kyung told her that she knows that she has been following the Chimera explosion ever since it started. Telling her that she is hosting an upcoming show based on the investigation, she wants to help her with everything she could. As Eugene told her that he doesn’t really know about the old case, Hyo Kyung suggested that they should look out in the public and work together. As the radio show began with Hyo Kyung and Eugene as the guests. The host began talking about the 1984 Chimera case. On being asked about what they think, Eugene suggested that it could be done by a copycat criminal.
But Hyo Kyung said that since Chimera exposed himself, he might be looking for some attention. As Eugene told her not to provoke the criminal, Hyo Kyung went to do exactly the opposite. While Eugene went on to suggest that the criminal might be a normal person who might’ve never done something like this. In the middle of the show, the host got a call from the Chimera himself. As they got him on the line, the person verifies by explaining how the recent explosion went on. Not saying anything much, he went on to announce that his next attack is going to be on the chairman of the Seoryeon Group, Seo Hyun Tae.

With the things we have seen till now, Hyun Tae isn’t just related to Joong Yeop but to Jae Hwan too. As Jae Hwan witnessed his mother calling him ‘director Seo.’ While Hyo Kyung is all in and ready to risk her life for this case.
