3. He Perfectly Expresses Park JoongGil’s Nature
Though Park JoongGil exudes coldness and is often seen with a poker face, the previous episodes show him slightly in a new light. Viewers discover a warm heart beneath the cold exterior, which he tends to hide.
In episode 6, when escorting a veteran soldier, Lee YoungChun (Jeon MuSong). Park JoongGil requests the procedure to be grand so as to honor his efforts. Though when GuRyun asks him to do so, he gives a cold life.
Also in episode 8, he approaches the scene when JunWoong (SF9’s RoWoon) refuses to save JinHo or Betamale (played by Min JinWoong). As he was responsible for exploiting depressed people and pushing them to death. Park JoongGil approaches the man, and gives him a glimpse of hell, which quickly changes his mind.
