  1. What was that about the scene where Yeo Jung went to the morgue to check out So-Hee’s dead body only to find out she was processed way back in 2014 already at the end of ep 8 part 1? The Go board in Yeo Jung is suppose to be a match between him & Dong-Eun. Is Dong-Eun targetting Yeo Jung as well? Why was the need for Yeo Jung to check out SoHee’s dead body in the morgue? Is YJ connected with SH’s death? The fact of the scene only to reveal that Mo-Yeong was deceived by DE in her revenge plot pitting the group among themselves. Can anybody explain this?
