Jirisan Episode 5 is releasing this weekend! The upcoming episode has revealed more secrets and the identity of the mysterious hooded man. As many viewers predicted, the spirit lurking in the mountain turns out to be Hyun Jo. However, it is a strange case as we know Hyun Jo is in a coma state and has not regained consciousness. Episode 3 enlightened this mystery as the little shaman girl had already told Hyun Jo that he would be bound to this mountain even after losing his life. However, at that time, he did not understand her words.
The recent episodes reveal it is Hyun Jo’s spirit who has been sending signals to Yi Gang. When Yi Gang discovers his presence as the male ghost, she gets more bewildered, since realistically, it seems impossible. Meanwhile, the past timeline shows our duo working on a new case. A simple snake poachers case turns into a murder case after digging more into it. However, this time, they secure a new clue which leads them closer to the person who has been killing people in the mountain in the cover of accidents. Eventually, both find the lead, who somehow is linked to the ranger station. What will be more secrets uncovered in the upcoming Jirisan Episode 5?
Ep 4 of Mount Jiri begins in 2020 with Yi Gang suspecting Chief Jo Dae Jin since she found yellow ribbons in his locker. She goes through the daily log for the past years. She finds that whenever an accident happened, Dae Jin was on leave. It is not coincident that he had a day off when someone lost their life in the mountain. Meanwhile, Lee Da Won visits the spot where she put the stone-twig marking according to Yi Gang’s instruction. However, something has changed. A tiny twig has changed its location, which creeps her out. She hurriedly pulls out a chip of the automated camera as she senses someone and runs away from there. It reveals that presence is none other than Hyun Jo’s spirit, who has been wandering through the mountain’s valley.
Yi Gang Finds About Hyun Jo’s Spirit Lurking In The Mountain
After reaching the ranger station, Da Won immediately shows Yi Gang the new pictures. They even go through the automated camera recording, which leaves them in goosebumps. The recording reveals the twig moving on its own, changing the direction. Understanding the direction, Yi Gang hurriedly instructs all the rangers and volunteers to move in the direction of the stone-twig showing. Thankfully, they find the victim and save him. Yi Gang personally meets the victim and discovers that his health condition worsened after drinking a yogurt drink. Later the victim talks about the male ghost lurking in the mountain. He tries to describe him, and when Yi Gang shows him Hyun Jo’s photo, the victim immediately identifies Hyun Jo as the male ghost. Thus, Jirisan Episode 5 will enlight more on this matter.
Snake Poachers Case
The story jumps back to 2018, revealing Hyun Jo getting worked up over hikers drinking yogurt drinks. He informs that he met Private Ahn again and learns that the suspicious hiker was closing granny Geum Rye’s rucksack zipper. It means the hiker wants them to believe granny Geum Rye died after eating the poisonous mushrooms and not from drinking the yogurt drink. Thankfully, Private Ahn saw the hiker, and thus, he gives Hyun Jo all information about his physical appearance. Once again, the plot moves to 2020, where Yi Gang gives a call to the hospital where Hyun Jo is admitted. She finds that he has not regained consciousness yet, making her more perplexed about his spirits’ appearance.
Again, the storyline moves to the past time. Hyun Jo and Yi Gang go to the endangered species restoration center, where they receive a new case of finding rare species of snake. However, instead of searching in the mountain, the two go to a local food stale, acting like a couple, and ask for snake soup. After tailing the shop owner, they end up at a factory. There they discover all various species of snakes that are usually found in Mount Jiri. They immediately call the police and arrest the couple turning all snakes to the restoration center. Even this case is somehow related to the serial killer, and thus Jirisan Episode 5 will give another glimpse of it.
Later, Hyun Joo sees a new vision of an animal claw scratch marking on a hand putting a potato and a pool of blood. On the next day, he and Yi Gang go to the place he saw in the vision but, they find nothing there. Breathing in relief, they return to their hiking training. However, at the moment, the snake poacher couple comes there. The husband (Il Man) finds a potato shape stone. However, it turns out a potato bomb that was used in the 60s and 70s. In the explosion, Il Man loses his life leaving his wife and three children behind. His wife blames rangers and park management for taking her husband’s life when it was their fault for going into the restricted area of the park.
Hyun Jo begins his private investigation about the potato bomb since it is impossible to make one now. It explains that some workers who clean the park keep the potato bombs as souvenirs. Hyun Jo visits each one of the workers but finds nothing. Eventually, he meets a worker where he discovers that someone stole his potato bombs. However, he did not report since his granddaughter is also a ranger, who is none other than Lee Yang Sun. At the town hall, people gather to see what rangers are going to inform them. However, at the meeting, Yi Gang finds the man with the animal claw scratching. It turns out that he is Lee Yang Sun’s cousin. Thus, ending the episode on another ambiguous note. Therefore, Jirisan Episode 5 will reveal more about Lee Yang Sun’s cousin.
