What To Look Forward To In The 2nd Half Of “Kairos”
MBC’s “Kairos” is gearing up for its second half!
“Kairos” is a “time-crossing fantasy thriller” about the interconnected fates of Kim Seo Jin (Shin Sung Rok), a man who falls into despair after his daughter is kidnapped, and Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young), a woman who is searching for her missing mother. From Kim Seo Jin’s perspective, Han Ae Ri is living exactly one month in the past — but after the two miraculously communicate from their different times, they set out on a thrilling quest to save their missing loved ones.
Here are three things to look forward to!
1. The ultimate reason behind Kim Seo Jin and Han Ae Ri’s crisis
Viewers are curious to find out why Kim Seo Jin and Han Ae Ri keep running into difficult situations. Although they were able to change the fates of Kim Seo Jin’s daughter and Han Ae Ri’s mother Kwak Song Ja (Hwang Jung Min), the child died, and Kwak Song Ja disappeared without a trace. In order to find the cause behind the continuing crisis, they follow a trail of clues and begin to discover the truth behind Yoo Joong Construction and the disaster that occurred 19 years prior. In the previous episode, Yoo Seo Il (Shin Goo), president of Yoo Joong Construction, revealed his dark side as he interrogated Kwak Song Ja on the location of an audio file. Viewers are theorizing about how all of the puzzle pieces will fit together.
2. Will Seo Do Kyun throw a wrench in Kim Seo Jin and Han Ae Ri’s plans?
Seo Do Kyun (Ahn Bo Hyun), who experienced time-crossing, could end up being a hindrance in Kim Seo Jin and Han Ae Ri’s coordinated plans. Previously, Seo Do Kyun was hopeful that he would be able to save the dead Kang Hyun Chae (Nam Gyu Ri), but he ran into difficulties after the Han Ae Ri of the past realized that he was pretending to be Kim Seo Jin. However, as Seo Do Kyun is willing to do anything for Kang Hyun Chae, it remains to be seen if he will take away the opportunity that connects the future Kim Seo Jin with the past Han Ae Ri.
3. The effects of Kim Seo Jin’s future memories on his past self
The injection of the future Kim Seo Jin’s memories into the past Kim Seo Jin is causing unexpected developments. The past Kim Seo Jin didn’t trust people easily, but his sweeter side was revealed through actions such as buying porridge for his wife Kang Hyun Chae. In episode nine, Han Ae Ri commented on his change in personality, asking hopefully, “Did you remember something?” Viewers are wondering how the story will develop if the past Kim Seo Jin ends up remembering all of his future memories.
The next episode of “Kairos” airs on December 7 at 9:20 p.m. KST.
