“Penthouse 3” has surpassed its highest viewer rating of 21.9% in the first episode, quickly topping the weekly mini-series, signaling a gust of wind ahead.
SBS Friday drama “Penthouse 3” (written by Kim Soon-ok, directed by Joo Dong-min) is a suspense revenge drama held at No. 1 housing price and No. 1 education with an indescribable desire. Above all, the first episode of “Penthouse 3” soared to 21% in the metropolitan area and 21.9% in the instant, setting a milestone of exceeding 11.1% and 20.9% in the first and second episodes of the season.
In particular, in the first episode of “Penthouse 3,” Joo Dan-tae (Eom Ki-joon) was shocked by the scene of the opening of his death at the Hera Palace fountain. In addition, the identity of Baek Joon-ki (On Joo-wan) was revealed after Joo Dan-tae and Chun Seo-jin (Kim So-yeon), who were released from prison after being cleared of charges due to the reinvestigation of the “Logan Lee (Park Eun-seok) car explosion” and the “Na Ae-gyo (Lee Ji-ah) murder case.”
On top of that, Chun Seo-jin shook the hearts of viewers as intense developments continued to rush from the cliff to the end of imagination. In this regard, he summarized three “big reversal points” that gave a dramatic twist in the 90-minute story.
◆ The whole story of ‘Logan-ri car explosion’ on point #1.
In the final episode of the second season, the real culprit of the “Logan-ri car explosion” was Joo Dan-tae. Joo Dan-tae, who was suffering from humiliation from unidentified prisoners at the detention center, suspected Logan-ri behind the scenes, released his slush fund and bought a prison officer, and even attracted Lee Kyu-jin (Bong Tae-gyu) to his side, and was taken to the hospital. Joo Dan-tae, who even bought a doctor, immediately escaped from the hospital and hid his identity in disguise as an elderly man with the help of secretary Cho (Kim Dong-kyu) and installed a bomb next to a car in Logan Lee. Joo Dan-tae, who later visited the Supreme Court justice and threatened him, shocked everyone with his move to get out of prison without being framed when Logan-ri was named the real culprit of the “Na Ae-gyo murder case.”
◆ Large twist point #2. Joo Dan-tae ◆ Baek Joongi, Baek Joon-ki ◆ Joo Dan-tae
Baek Joon-ki’s real name, which was questioned by his mysterious appearance, was Joo Dan-tae. Loganley met Baek Joon-ki in the U.S. before the car explosion and told Baek Joon-ki, “It took me a while to find you. “I never imagined you would be living under the name of Baek Joon-ki.” Baek Joon-ki saw Joo Dan-tae in the picture and shouted, “Mr. Baek,” and cried, “He killed my parents and stole all my family’s property.” Loganley said, “Mr. Bag is alive in Korea now. In your name, Zhu Dan-tae,” he said.
With the shocking truth revealed that the real name of Joo Dan-tae, who has been doing atrocities, was Baek Joon-ki, and that the real name of Baek Joon-ki whom Logan Lee met, is Joo Dan-tae, this tremendous clue is doubling curiosity about what will happen in the future.
◆ Large Reversal Point #3 Opening & Ending Beyond Imagination
In the first episode of Penthouse, Min Seol-ah (Jo Soo-min)’s fall opening and Bae Rona (Kim Hyun-soo)’s fall opening were depicted, and in the first episode of Penthouse 3, the statue of Hera Palace shattered by powerful lightning fell to the Hera Statue of Hera, which later floated on the water.
In the ending, Shim Soo-ryeon (Lee Ji-ah) and Oh Yoon-hee (Yujin) kidnapped and dragged Chun Seo-jin, who were released on probation for posing as a false mental illness, and said, “You killed Logan, right? “You killed me, you think I don’t know?” and the story of more than imagination pushing me straight to the riverside caused extreme goosebumps.
Many are curious about what the significance of Ju Dan-tae’s discovery as a dead body in the fountain of the Statue of Hera, why Shim Soo-ryeon and Oh Yoon-hee kidnapped Chun Seo-jin, and what will happen to her life and death.
The production team said, “I am truly grateful to the viewers for their enthusiastic interest and support from the first broadcast,” adding, “Now each character will race by all means for the ‘final war’. “Please pay attention to Oh Yoon-hee, Chun Seo-jin, Shim Soo-ryeon and Joo Dan-tae, as well as the activities of new characters and ‘Penthouse’ kids.”
Meanwhile, Penthouse 3 airs every Friday at 10 p.m.
