The Merchant Gaekju Episode 27 Recap

The Head Merchant won’t give So Sa (Han Chae Ah) back the baby, Yu Su. The Head Merchant declares his son deserves better than the shabby room Bong Sam can provide.

  1. Really missing the romance…SoSa and Bong Sam act like an old married couple. SoSa has as much sex appeal as a dried yellow pollack. Jang Hyuk charismatic as always, but how about giving us something magical like ‘SHINE’S’ underwater kiss! 💋

    • I wonder if the lack of romance outside of the bedroom (not that there would be any in the bedroom either since SoSa just had a baby) – but Shine & Go Crazy was more of a faery tale in my opinion; whereas Merchant seems to be trying to show us how people actually lived as merchants.

      The struggle to survive lends itself to very little romance and this drama seems on par with the generations that I’m familiar with of lower classes that went thru sharecropping, coal mining and lived through the Great Depression.

      That said, I’d much rather sit thru the romance and eccentricity that was Shine or Go Crazy. I’ll rewatch Shine but will never rewatch Merchant.
