Gyeongseong Creature (2023) s01e02 Episode Script


[opening theme music playing]
[music fades]
Ah, Sachimoto Ryu,
Tokyo University of the Arts.
You applied on your own?
Uh, yes.
I wanted to serve.
I wanted to serve the Empire of Japan.
Well, the pay is not too bad either, huh?
What is this book for, sir?
The New Text on Anatomy.
Oh, I haven't seen this one yet.
[man 1] Books like these have been around
in Germany since 1722.
Though our own empire is lagging behind,
we are striving to elevate
our medical standards for the future
here at Ongseong Hospital
through study and research,
and, of course, future experiments.
Your job is to record
everything we do here. Understood?
So you want me to
draw what exactly, sir?
- [dramatic music playing]
- [pained moaning]
Now, which part shall we work on today?
Since we have a new artist with us,
let's begin with the abdomen.
- Let's cut the middle.
- [man 2] Yes, sir.
[man 1] Scalpel.
Doctor, I don't wanna die!
Please don't kill me!
Please, Doctor, let me live!
Oh, please!
Please don't do this!
Please don't kill me! Cu
[Sachimoto panting]
[man 1] Sachimoto?
Get back in here right now!
[Sachimoto] I was merely a starving artist
struggling to survive.
[coughs, breathes heavily]
I needed money,
so I chose Joseon
after hearing about the high pay.
[inhales shakily, exhales sharply]
[solemn instrumental music playing]
[Sachimoto sobbing gently]
[door closes]
[woman] No need to cry.
You'll get used to it soon enough.
You'll grow numb to it,
just like everyone else here.
That seems to be human nature.
It seems we all have the ability
to adapt pretty quickly to anything.
Whether it's horrible pain
or disillusionment.
[door opens]
Hey, you. Time's up. Hurry up.
[footsteps receding]
[door closes]
[suspenseful music playing]
[distant coughing]
[doors unlocking, locking]
[distant coughing]
[distant coughing]
[distant whimpering]
[melancholy music playing]
[grunts softly]
[grunting, gasping]
[breathing rapidly]
[ominous music playing]
- [dramatic music playing]
- [door clanging]
[door rattling]
[breathing heavily]
- [music fades]
- [groans]
[unsettling music playing]
[breathing shakily]
[creature breathing heavily]
[wistful music playing]
[Chae-ok] Why did you ever agree
to work with him?
There wasn't a particular reason
to turn him down
We'll help him find the missing girl,
and he will get information on Sachimoto.
- But the man's selfish and shameless.
- [chuckles]
Don't be so quick to judge Master Jang.
The way he speaks is so crude,
and he brushes off
other people's issues so lightly.
Chae-ok, you have to understand
we're just a couple of sleuths to him.
We've already agreed,
so now we'll just focus on
benefitting each other.
I'm not sure.
I've got a bad feeling about this.
Like when we were
on Manwol Island, I had a hunch,
then you were injured,
and it turned out I was right.
This will be our final case together,
got that?
After we find the missing girl,
I think you should go home, all right?
What about Mother, then?
From now on,
the burden of finding your mother
is mine alone to bear.
She wouldn't have wanted
this life for you. You need to stop.
- Father, listen
- [father] You should live your own life.
This is where the road ends for us.
[Tae-sang] Till the cherry blossoms
lose their flowers.
[gentle music playing]
[music fades]
So, what did you think
about these sleuths we talked to?
Think they'll be able to find Myeong-ja?
The way they carry themselves,
I think they know what they're doing.
[inhales deeply]
[suspenseful music playing]
- [man 1] Who's taking the next shift?
- [man 2] I think it's Kinoshita, sir.
- [man 1] Oh, he's the new kid, right?
- [man 2] Yes, he is, but he's no good.
[suspenseful music continues]
[dramatic music sting]
- Let's go.
- Yes, sir!
[dramatic music playing]
[music fades]
[Mr. Gu] How is it
that we can't find a single lead?
I combed through
Myeong-ja's favorite tea shops,
restaurants, boutiques, shoe stores,
and any bar she would frequent,
and no one has any idea where she is.
No one has seen her at all, huh?
Out of desperation I even went
to the rickshaw offices over there.
They knew nothing at all.
They said no one has seen Myeong-ja
or given her a ride.
Ah, jeez. What do we do now, huh?
She is nowhere to be found, yeah.
It's like she evaporated into thin air.
Disappeared, up and gone.
Everybody leaves a trace.
Doesn't matter where they run off,
there's always a clue.
We just have to find what that clue is.
[whimsical music playing]
By the way, is that really
how Ishikawa told them to tail us? Huh?
They must think we're fools!
That's probably the most obvious tail
I've ever witnessed in my life.
It's so obvious that it's difficult
for me to pretend that I'm oblivious.
- [man 1] What's going on?
- [man 2] Why are they fighting?
- Anyone see what happened?
- Has he lost his mind?
- [blow landing]
- [groans]
Answer me now, kid!
What color is
the pot I'm holding right here?
It's, um,
the color white.
And what do you call
white porcelain in Joseon, huh?
Baekja, sir.
All right. So, then
what is this?
It's baekja! So,
are you going to let me sell this, huh?
[Tae-sang] Let's see.
How should I put this?
This looks a little too shoddy
to be called fine porcelain.
Seems to be just some regular, old,
ordinary pottery to me, not baekja.
How come I paid
over a hundred won for that thing, then?
No idea.
Then how much will your little pawn shop
let me sell it for?
Can you prove its authenticity?
A receipt or certificate would work.
[man gasps]
I don't have either.
So you just paid 100 won for a pot
that hardly holds people's urine,
but you did not get a certificate?
Well, then, I guess it's clear
that you have been properly scammed.
This is a matter for the police bureau,
not a pawnshop. Sorry I can't help you.
Listen, Master Jang.
How about you just do me a favor
and take this thing?
We all know that Commissioner Ishikawa
is planning to confiscate everything.
We'll see about that.
All the rumors suggest otherwise,
so you better reconsider.
We all suspect your golden pawnshop
will be getting a new owner.
If you're losing everything anyway,
why do you care
if there's an extra piss pot in here, huh?
Listen, you little shit,
what's your problem?
- Who are you to talk to me like this, huh?
- What? Who you calling "little shit"?
How about you stop disrupting my business
and leave now?
You're gonna get hurt if you keep this up.
Oh, and your stupid little
tough guy way of speaking?
I'm embarrassed for you.
Worst I've ever heard.
Ah, you jackass! [grunts]
You're dead!
[tense music playing]
[music fades]
I am the owner
of the House of Golden Treasure.
That will always be the case.
You got that?
So if you're gonna come in here
and cause a disturbance,
or if you're even gonna
think of robbing me,
get ready for one
of the following two things.
You're gonna die
or get very close to dying.
What's it gonna be, samurai?
Huh? I don't have all day.
My arms are shaking.
My arms are feeling a bit heavy, see? See?
Look, look, look. Look.
You might wanna leave now.
[footsteps receding]
- Move!
- Outta the way!
- Move out of the way!
- Move!
[crowd gasping]
Let's go.
[woman] Out of the way. Get out of here!
From now on,
we must all stay vigilant, okay?
What do you mean by that?
He means if we don't find Myeong-ja,
thugs like that samurai bunch
are gonna keep coming around
and causing trouble for us.
[Mrs. Nawol] Which reminds me.
They found the place
Myeong-ja is thought to have last visited.
[mysterious music playing]
So we found the rickshaw puller
who gave Myeong-ja a ride last week.
What?! No way. That can't be.
That's not possible, huh?
I I already told you,
I went to the Spring Moon Hall offices
and spoke to every guy!
None of the rickshaw pullers
saw Myeong-Ja.
I double-checked with all our sources!
Well, he doesn't work
for Spring Moon Hall, Mr. Gu.
What did you find out?
You said that there's a chance
she could be dead.
So we looked around
to see who the killer might be.
There was one person we thought of.
[ominous music sting]
[suspenseful music playing]
[woman] Where's Dr. Takahashi?
He's ill and says he needs
three to four days to rest, ma'am.
[Tae-sang] Lady Yukiko Maeda.
You're saying she was
the last person to see Myeon-ja?
Yes, Myeong-ja was called over
to Ishikawa's house.
She stayed half an hour,
then she was sent somewhere else.
Where'd she go?
Ongseong Hospital.
Ongseong Ongseong Hospital?
And you're sure of that?
[engine starts]
[man squealing]
- [tires screech]
- [man yelling fearfully]
Please stop! Let me down! [panting]
You are certain
she was sent to Ongseong Hospital, then?
Yes! That's where she is!
It was Ongseong Hospital, I'm positive!
I swear on my father
and on my mother!
The woman you're looking for
is there, I swear to you, okay?
I swear that's where she is.
That's where I took her!
Since Myeong-ja disappeared
after the rickshaw puller dropped her off
at Ongseong Hospital,
it's possible that she might be
held captive somewhere inside of there.
Seriously, that is ridiculous, okay?
That makes no sense.
What about it doesn't make sense?
You must not know it's almost impossible
to get admitted. Japanese only.
If you aren't part
of the Japanese military, the police,
or the government-general's office,
you're not getting in.
And you think
a Joseon courtesan was let inside?
She would've needed a powerful connection
to even get past the front gate, okay?
What if Lady Maeda arranged it?
What if she has something to do with this?
And why would she do that, huh?
You really believe Lady Maeda
would help out a girl like Myeong-Ja?
Why would she? For what reason?
We'll figure it out
once we're in the hospital.
[Mr. Gu] What's the matter with you?
Did you not hear me?
I just told you all
that we can't get in without a connection.
Well, I heard that Master Jang
has quite a few connections.
Would a hospital visit be
too hard for you?
Well, I am in contact
with a few Joseon folks
who can pass through no problem.
Can you get us in or not?
You'll just have to wait and see.
I've had enough.
If you can't figure it out,
we'll find a way to get in.
Oh, you're impatient, aren't you?
Who said I couldn't figure it out?
That's not what I was saying.
I'm saying we just
we plan it all out, that's all.
You gotta plan things, not just improvise.
Always plan things out.
[whimsical music playing]
Do I got something on my face?
[whimsical music continues]
Huh? Oh.
[Mrs. Nawol] Now what are you doing?
Ah. Give these clothes
for them to change into.
Why? What are you planning?
How dare those sleuths doubt me.
I'll show them
how shrewd and meticulous I am.
I'm gonna show 'em, just watch.
What is the money for?
What are you up to now?
What do you think?
There's nothing that money can't do, hmm?
- What's this?
- Money.
That's what it is.
I don't care if you use it
for the independence movement or whatever.
Spend it how you wish.
Do what you want with it. It's your money.
You better tell me what you're up to.
- Can I be you for a minute?
- What do you mean?
I'm going to Ongseong Hospital.
I need to borrow your ID so I can get in.
I know your family's
some of the only Joseons allowed to go in.
You feeling sick?
No, I feel good, thank you.
If this is concerning Ishikawa, I'm out.
No, thank you.
Just do me this favor as a close friend.
That is, if you still think of me
as your friend.
I wanna know
who you're helping out, Tae-sang.
If I'm lending you an ID,
I need to know what's going on.
I'd worry about what could happen
if you become involved.
You come here wanting to use my ID,
yet you're the one worried about me?
Can I borrow your ID?
[sighs] I wish you could use at least
some of that passion to help our cause.
[Tae-sang chuckles]
[clicks tongue, inhales deeply] I'm sorry,
but I don't hope or daydream
about independence
when this is all we've ever known.
The king couldn't stop Japan
from taking over.
What makes you any different?
There's only one thing
I'm concerned about.
I only wanna survive all this.
Making it as long as I can,
preferably in one piece.
So, uh
help me do this, okay?
[chuckles softly]
[whimsical music playing]
Return it as soon as you're done.
[melodic instrumental music playing]
I will indeed.
[music fades]
[Mr. Gu] So how'd it go?
The sleuths, where are they?
Are they coming yet?
[Mr. Gu] Ah
- Oh, they're over there.
- [woman] That one's pretty too! Right?
Thank you. They're so colorful!
[romantic music playing]
[Mr. Gu clears throat]
- Shall we go now?
- What? Oh!
- [father] We don't have all day.
- [Tae-sang] Yes. Right.
Let's go. Please get in.
Ah, so helping a lady into the car
is just good manners here.
Well, I don't need it.
[Tae-sang sighs]
[engine starts]
All right, everyone, let's go.
[adventurous music playing]
[reverential music playing]
ID, please.
[Mr. Gu] This is my master.
Sir, do you know the, uh,
the Bugang Company?
Sure you do. His father owns it.
[guard] Are they all with you?
The other two in the back?
Both are family.
They are my master's fiancée
and her father.
Oh, it's almost time
for our appointment. Oh my!
Can we go ahead, please, sir?
Dr. Takahashi absolutely hates it
when we're not on time,
so just let us through
or we'll be late, huh? [chuckles]
That's not my concern, dirty Josenjing.
Okay, let them through.
Thank you, good sir.
- [guard] Wait! Hold on!
- [tires screech]
[guard sighs]
- Here you go. You forgot this.
- Ah, the ID! I almost forgot!
I'm really thankful for you, sir.
[engine starts]
[rickshaw puller] Almost there.
Any minute now.
[foreboding music playing]
[music fades]
Ongseong Hospital?
Yes, sir. He's been seen entering
the facility with a few other Josenjings.
Tell me, sir.
Should we follow them around?
[intriguing music playing]
[door opens]
[indistinct chattering in distance]
I'd like to see Dr. Takahashi, please.
Thank you.
Did you say Dr. Takahashi?
[Jun-taek] Our family physician
is Dr. Takahashi.
I don't think he'll be there today.
He has tennis lessons
every Thursday afternoon.
It'll work out, then.
Sorry, sir.
I don't think that he's in today.
Oh, are you certain that's true?
He told me I could see him today.
Would you mind checking again for me?
- Yes, sir. I'll check for you.
- Thanks.
[suspenseful music playing]
[pained yelling] Oh, my stomach!
- [pained yelling]
- [man gasps]
- Sir, are you all right?
- [pained yelping]
[nurse] Sir? Are you all right?
What happened, sir?
- Tell us what happened!
- My stomach!
- What happened?
- [nurse] What did you do?
- [screaming]
- Get him on the ground.
- Where does it hurt?
- Just hang on!
[Mr. Gu] It's coming out!
[Tae-sang] What's coming out
of your bottom?
- [Mr. Gu] Oh, it hurts! It hurts so much!
- [Tae-sang] What's coming out?
- [Mr. Gu] It's coming out!
- What is?
- Help me!
- [nurse] Sir, just relax!
Is there anyone that can help us?
Help us! Doctor!
[Mr. Gu yelling in agony]
They're getting help!
[mysterious music playing]
where are you?
[man] Who are you?
What are you doing in here?
Sorry, sir.
I must've taken a wrong turn.
You must have taken a wrong turn,
so you started flipping
through the records?
Actually, I'm looking for
a friend hospitalized here.
But I don't know where she is.
[ominous music playing]
I know you're from Joseon. I can tell.
Let's not make a scene.
So I'll just leave quietly, okay?
Is that all right?
Reveal who you are first.
Tell me who you are, and I'll let you go.
[door opens]
Listen, it's better to be alive than dead.
[ominous music playing]
By chance, are you two from Manchuria?
Got a name, sir?
[inhales shakily]
The doctor will be here soon.
It's gonna be all right
I think the doctor's here.
The doctor's here now.
[pained yelling]
[Tae-sang] Uh
[fearful yelping]
This will help alleviate
some of the pain for now.
- Take off his jacket.
- Yes, Doctor.
- I can't! I can't! No! No! Let me go!
- [Tae-sang] No.
[Mr. Gu] No, stop! Stop! No!
No, stop! [yelping]
Please, don't let him do this!
No! No!
[terrified yelping]
Please, Master!
- [doctor] Come on! Quickly!
- Yes, Doctor.
It'll make you feel better.
I can't! No! No!
- Mr. Gu!
- [Mr. Gu] Stop! Stop it!
Come here, you bastard!
Don't let him do this! [whimpering]
- Why, huh?
- [Tae-sang] Huh?
[Mr. Gu whimpering]
Oh! Oh, hold on. It's okay.
Just hold on a second.
Hold on! Just hold on, huh?
- Huh?
- What?
The pain suddenly disappeared!
- Are you serious?
- Yes.
How is this possible?
- It doesn't hurt at all anymore!
- Well, are you sure?
I'm suddenly healed
because of what the doctor did!
That's amazing!
[crowd gasping]
How can we ever thank you?
You're an amazing doctor.
[crowd murmuring]
[whimsical music playing]
Great visit.
[shocked muttering]
Were you gonna let him
actually give me the shot?
What matters is he didn't do it.
[distant gunshot echoing]
[man 1] What was that?
- What's going on? Where did it come from?
- [woman 1] Please don't be alarmed.
The military base nearby
must be holding a target practice.
- [woman 2] Whoa, that was scary.
- [Mr. Gu] That's strange.
It came from under the building.
I wonder what's down there.
Let's just keep moving. This way.
[unsettling music playing]
- Why did you open fire?
- [soldier 1] We couldn't capture it.
Two of our soldiers were attacked
before we even got to the door.
One corporal is still alive
on the floor. What should we do?
Please help me!
- Please help
- [snarling]
[guns cocking]
Should we open fire?
[pained yelling]
Sir, should I go
rescue the corporal or not?
Remain still. Remain where you are.
If I don't get him, he could die!
Shh! Do not shoot the creature.
I need that creature alive.
Do you understand?
This experiment is important to us.
This creature is vital for us.
You got that?
Lt. Kato, what is that?
[soldier 1] What is that thing?
What do we do?!
[soldier 2] Please save me.
[creature snarling, growling]
[soldier 2 gasping fearfully]
Please save me!
Please help!
Please help me.
Please save me
[creature snarling]
[low growling]
[soldier 2] Please,
I'm begging you! Please!
Please help me! [groans]
[scales creaking]
[soldier 2 whimpering]
[grunts, gasps]
- Let him go!
- Stop, soldier. Hold your fire!
[soldier yells]
[choked gasping]
[choked breathing]
[whimpers, yelps]
[panicked gasping]
[bones crunching]
[flesh squelching]
[reverential music playing]
What a magnificent goddess you are!
[dramatic music playing]
[creature roaring]
[dramatic music continues]
[music fades]
[Tae-sang sighs]
What's this? What are you doing right now?
Why do you have extra clothes?
My father and I are spending the night
at the hospital.
Uh, wait. Are we staying with you too?
You two will just be in our way,
so you should leave now while you can.
I'm not leaving until you tell me
what you're planning to do.
Behind the hospital is a military ward.
I also heard
the basement is more of a prison.
I've also been told
that they transfer Joseon people
from Seodaemun Prison to here.
But those who are sent to the basement
- Well, I heard they never come back.
- [Mr. Gu gasps]
Wait, is Myeong-ja down there?
Well, that's what
we're planning to find out.
Excuse me?
When, might I ask,
did you happen to learn all of this?
[door opens]
[janitor breathing heavily]
There's some unusual movement
in the military ward right now.
You should come back
and try this another day.
We don't have time to come back.
So you just show us the way,
and we'll do the rest.
[Mr. Gu exhales sharply]
[Tae-sang] Wait, I
Just [sighs]
Just what is going on right now?
The plan was to go in and get out.
What did this janitor say
to make you change your
They took my brother a year ago.
He was at Seodaemun Prison
when they transferred him to Ongseong.
I was told
he was brought here for a fever.
That's when I lost all contact.
I looked everywhere for him,
but there's no record of him anywhere.
My goodness. So you got a job here
to look for your missing brother?
Why should I believe you?
You're a complete stranger to me.
[janitor inhales deeply]
[Mr. Gu gasps]
What does that mean?
It's the symbol for the Patriotic Society.
It's a resistance group.
Did you really not know that?
You should head out while you can.
We'll send a message
on whether or not Myeong-ja is being
held captive in the basement.
- But I thought
- [Chae-ok] Okay, I'm ready.
[janitor] Then follow me.
Hey, wait a minute.
Oh, um, thank you for the clothes.
That's not what I meant
when I asked you to wait.
Well, did did you have
something else to say?
What is it?
Just say it.
[Tae-sang] Well
I, uh, I just, um
This plan of yours is completely reckless.
In fact, it's a bad idea.
Let's be a little more reasonable.
You should really think this through.
You gave us the time frame.
We have till the cherry blossoms lose
their flowers. That's what you told us.
With cherry blossoms, they bloom quickly,
but just as fast, they're gone.
So we have to act now.
That's my plan here.
I'm not okay with this. There's no reason
to deviate from the original plan.
You change your principles
on the situation.
A change in plans
shouldn't be too hard for you.
It's like what did you call it again?
Having flexibility?
We'll execute on our end
and you do the same.
Find Sachimoto for me.
Will you do that?
[father] Chae-ok.
I'm coming.
[door closes]
Wow, they sure are quick
to take initiative, don't ya think?
Huh? Don't you think so?
[breathing heavily]
[man] Hey, you!
Visitors are not permitted
to be in this area.
Who are you?
Ah! I'm so sorry, sir.
We were looking for the restroom
and got lost.
- We should go now, Master.
- Yes.
[man] Wait a second.
Oh, there you are. I was looking for you.
So I double-checked.
Dr. Takahashi is unfortunately
out of the office today.
Ah, he's not here, then?
I guess I got the date confused for today.
I'm so embarrassed.
[man] Is he a patient?
Yes, he is.
He's Dr. Takahashi's patient. I checked.
[man clears throat]
[Tae-sung chuckles softly]
[siren blaring]
You better leave now, sir.
[man 2] This is an emergency.
All visitors and outpatients
who have come in for appointments today
must exit the premises.
- [woman] What is going on?
- [man 2] I repeat.
All visitors and outpatients
who have come in for appointments today
must leave the building.
Everyone, please leave the building.
Lt. Kato, please give us an order.
What do you want us to do?
The door will break any minute now!
Lt. Kato!
[soldier 1 gasps]
We will proceed to Level 4.
Retrieve the nitrogen.
Yes, sir!
The nitrogen, go grab it now!
Yes, sir!
[creature snarling ferociously]
[dramatic music playing]
I'll protect you. Don't you worry.
We're gonna move you to a place
fit for the queen that you are.
[creature snarls]
[woman] What was that all about?
[confused muttering]
[Mr. Gu] I'm sure everything will be fine.
They did say they were experts at this.
Once they can confirm
Myeong-ja's in the hospital,
they'll come back out.
- Speaking of which
- [Mr. Gu] Yes?
It looks like
they are as devoted to their work as I am.
[siren blaring in distance]
- [siren continues]
- [suspenseful music playing]
[dramatic music continues]
[Kato] Any movement?
[solder 1] None, sir.
It seems to be fully asleep for now.
[unsettling music playing]
[gas hissing]
[crate squeaking]
[soldier 2] What is that?
What is all that?
[soldier 3] Well, they look like
they're spores of some kind.
[Kato] It's anthrax.
It's protecting itself,
even while it sleeps.
- [solder 2] We've finished moving it, sir.
- [soldier 1] Close the door.
[door slams closed]
[Kato] We will proceed to Level 4.
Don't forget to continuously
inject nitrogen during transportation.
It's in a trance state
and can wake up in seconds.
Let's all be careful.
- [soldiers] Yes, sir!
- [soldier 1] Let's move!
[tense music playing]
[music intensifies]
[creature breathing heavily]
[creature growling softly]
[music fades]
[tense music playing]
Hmm? It looks like a snowflake.
It melts so quickly.
[slow breathing]
[suspenseful music playing]
[breathing shakily]
[girl whimpers]
[pained gasping, yelping]
[pained screaming]
[prisoners screaming in pain]
[dramatic music playing]
Is someone there?!
- [fearful yelling]
- [prisoners screaming]
[prisoners screaming]
[flesh sizzling]
[pained screaming continues]
[dramatic music intensifies]
[prisoners screaming in pain]
[Kato] Amazing.
[prisoners screaming]
[tense music playing]
[all breathing heavily]
Didn't you say the military ward
only held injured Japanese soldiers?
Yes, they're kept
on the second and third floors, mainly.
The first floor is usually
for administration,
communications, and liaisons.
It looks more like a military base
than a ward.
[janitor] The security is so tight
that I'd never dare to go near that area.
I'm only allowed into the ward
once every two days to clean.
Why is that watchtower over there empty?
A man fell to his death once
because the watchtower wasn't stable.
They keep talking about renovating it,
but so far they haven't.
Can you make it to that watchtower?
Looks like it won't be easy
but I can make it.
- Be right back.
- [janitor] Hold on.
Wait, don't
[suspenseful music playing]
[door opening]
[door closes]
[suspenseful music intensifies]
She disappeared.
[breathing heavily]
[ethereal music playing]
[siren blaring]
[military-style drumbeat]
[footsteps approaching]
- [soldier 1] Hurry, move! Quickly!
- [soldiers] Yes, sir!
[dramatic music playing]
- What should we do, sir?
- What are you doing? Get ready to move!
- Move out!
- Sir!
Move quickly! Hurry!
Be quick about it. Go!
- Load everything into truck four.
- Yes, sir.
Move to the basement! Move!
Move quickly! Let's go!
[dramatic music playing]
[music fades]
[clock ticking]
[inhales deeply, exhales slowly]
[gentle instrumental music playing]
[inhales nervously]
You are still here, Master Jang?
Goodness. Well, talk to me. What is it?
I really don't understand it at all.
What don't you understand?
Why do I seem to be so worried?
What are you worried about, huh?
I mean, if we look
at the situation right now,
Ishikawa basically has
my life in his hands.
So if I cannot find Myeong-ja,
then everything I own
will get completely confiscated.
So it's very likely
that I could get dragged off into war.
Oh, and not to mention
the vultures and hyenas
circling the House of Golden Treasure,
trying to pick off whatever they can.
So why am I so
worried about her?
Are you talking about the sleuth girl?
The woman you mentioned just now.
Oh, her?
Did I mention her just now?
Oh, how unfortunate.
This man is so hopelessly in love.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! In love?
Those are some strong words.
I am Jang Tae-sang.
Here in Gyeongseong, all the women
throw themselves at me, huh?
Right now I'm Bukchon's hot guy.
And I'm not phased one bit.
You sure about that?
Usually you act like you're above
the women in Gyeongseong, but now
something's changed, hmm?
The first woman to ignore you,
and now you're in love.
Ah, no, no! It is not like that.
Okay, then please explain.
Um, you know
it's called How do I put it? Humanism?
Humanism? Really?
Yes, that's right. It's humanism.
Love for all, uh
all of humankind. That's it.
I often ponder and worry for everyone.
I care a lot more than you think, hmm?
- Now you know.
- Wow, how refreshing.
Okay, I shouldn't have left
her and her father alone.
I should've made her leave that hospital
with me. Now she's in danger.
Then how about you go find this Sachimoto?
Instead of complaining,
why don't you make use of this time?
If you really want to help her,
do something about it!
How about you be the man I know you are
and find a way to fix all this?
Okay, then.
I'll fix this.
Where are you off to?
[Tae-sang] To do what I have to do,
in my own way.
[Tae-sang breathing heavily]
[groans] Why does he do this?
There's no way I'm driving you around,
you got that? So leave me alone.
[Tae-sang scoffs]
Whatever. In that case,
just write this down.
Sachimoto. He's a Japanese man,
about 35 years old.
- I told you to write it down.
- Oh.
He's a painter, an artist.
I need you to tell Commissioner Ishikawa
to tell his men to search for him.
Search all over Gyeongseong
for this Sachimoto guy.
Tell him this guy is crucial in helping us
locate the whereabouts
of his dear Myeong-Ja.
- Yes.
- Okay!
[mutters angrily]
Here you are.
[woman] Mm-hmm.
[relaxing piano music playing]
Who is that you're drawing?
Oh, uh, I'm sorry, sir.
I didn't mean to pry.
Just she looks like she's from Joseon.
How could you tell she was?
[server] It's the parting of her hair.
- [Sachimoto sighs]
- [server chuckles]
I didn't know that.
You know, you're quite talented at that.
- Are you employed as a painter?
- [chuckles wryly]
[vendor] Breaking news! Breaking news!
Ongseong Hospital
will be closed indefinitely!
Ongseong Hospital closed due to
an unknown contagious disease!
[man 1] Mr. Chae was right.
He told me they took a truckful
of corpses from Ongseong Hospital
and buried them in a pit!
- [man 2] Oh my, truckfuls of corpses?!
- Breaking news!
[dramatic music playing]
[solder 1] Let's go!
Hurry up! Quickly!
Faster! Go, hurry!
Bring it over here!
I told you to hurry up!
Let's go! Move! Move!
[woman] Did something happen yesterday?
- [confused muttering]
- [man 3] They closed off the road!
What are you saying?
The Japanese military
barricaded the hospital?
Um, yes.
No one can go inside the hospital.
Anyone who was still inside
isn't able to leave.
The Japanese soldiers
had machine guns and rifles,
and it looked scary to me.
[Mr. Gu] Have you heard from the sleuths?
They might still be stuck in the hospital.
[Mr. Gu sighs]
Master Jang, wait. Where are you going?
Hey, do I need to go too?
Don't just stand there, go!
Yes, I know. I was about to go with him.
[door opens]
[door closes]
[suspenseful music playing]
So I double-checked.
Dr. Takahashi is unfortunately
out of the office today.
What can I do for you?
Where's the person who gave this to you?
Still trapped inside of the hospital.
I managed to escape
right before the soldiers got there
and barricaded it.
It's shut for good.
And those still trapped inside,
will they be safe?
I don't know, sir.
Is it true that there's a disease
spreading inside of that hospital?
I don't know. I'm sorry.
Why won't you give me a direct answer?
Tell me what the hell is going on
inside of that hospital!
I'm sorry, I don't know either!
So many people died last night.
[breathing shakily]
So many innocent people died there!
There were so many bodies.
Too many to even count.
I don't know why.
There's no way to find out either.
Why was it you?
Why were you the one
who delivered this note to us?
- Go ahead, tell me.
- [nurse breathing shakily]
[suspenseful music playing]
Some horrible things are happening
in that hospital right now.
So many people have died in there.
We don't know why.
[dramatic music playing]
My comrades tried over and over
to find out what's going on, but
nobody ever comes back alive.
Whoever is in there
won't make it back out.
[creature snarling]
[creature roaring]
- Mr. Gu.
- Yes, what is it, sir?
It seems as if I'll have to go inside.
Go inside? Huh?
- Inside the hospital.
- You can't, sir!
- Think about it!
- You can't!
Get my things ready.
It's happening. I'm going inside.
