Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung of 'Sejak, The Bewitched' reunited after three years.

The 5th episode of tvN's 'Sejak, The Bewitched', which aired on the 3rd, was a breathless story of Kang Hee-soo (played by Shin Se-kyung) seeking revenge on Lee In (played by Jo Jung-seok) and the cold reunion of the two after three years.

Kang Hee-su was barely saved by Jeom-ne (played by Go Soo-hee) and Ja Geun-nyeon (played by Song Sang-eun), and later received intimate information about the inside and outside of the palace from the palace chiefs Bun-yeong (played by Kim Bo-yoon) and Choo Dal-ha (played by Na Hyun-woo). Lee In's baduk teacher and Park Jong-hwan's (Lee Kyu-hoe) closest associate, Deokseong-gun (Son Jong-hak), is fully prepared to become his guest.

At the same time, there were rumors within the palace that Lee In only favored Dongsanggung (played by Park Ye-young), who was the previous king's secret, and the government ministers were especially wary of Lee In, as King Yechin gave the throne to his young nephew and stepped down as regent. Here, the maternal relatives, centered on Queen Dowager Park (played by Jang Young-nam) and Park Jong-hwan, said that Kim Myeong-ha (played by Lee Shin-young), the 'child of weightlifting', should not be left idly by and announced that he should be dismissed from his position as a judge in Uiju for neglecting his duties. Overcoming opposition, he said to Kim Myeong-ha, “Eastern Seungji has one mission. He personally appointed Dongbu Seungji, saying, “Save the peach tree of the patronage.” In response to the unexpected announcement, Park Jong-hwan summoned the military inspector general and Do Seung-ji and ordered them to hand it over as late as possible to prevent Kim Myeong-ha from receiving instruction from Lee In, making the power struggle even more intense.

Then one day, an incident occurred where Deokseong-gun suddenly died. In particular, a rumor spread throughout the capital that Prince Deokseong was killed because he was hated by Yi In after he said, “No matter how powerful King Yechin is, natural law cannot be violated.” Just like that, Kang Hee-soo was momentarily disappointed that the tower he worked on for three years had collapsed, when he heard the news that Dae Gi-ryeong (a government official who added a baduk reporter to the colonel who waits for the king's order) was being elected. Above all, the Dae Gi-ryeong test contained Lee In's warning to Park Jong-hwan not to let people into Yeongchwijeong without permission, and along with this, Kang Hee-soo, despite everyone's dissuasion, said, "I don't need heaven's help. I will do it. “I will punish you,” he said, recalling the revenge he had engraved on his heart three years ago.

The day of Dae Gi-ryeong exam has finally arrived. The first person to recognize Kang Hee-soo was Min Sang-hyo (Kim Seo-ha). Min Sang-hyo demanded that Kang Hee-soo, who had run out shouting a loss as soon as he saw the drizzle in his bet of baduk three years ago, hand over the baduk board and baduk balls he owed, and Kang Hee-soo hurriedly said, "I will repay the debt when I become a senior citizen." left. Afterwards, the existence of Kang Hee-soo, who boasts outstanding baduk skills, emerged as a hot potato, and new members of the government also said, “You can’t believe you are taking the Gigi Ryeong exam without any support. “I think he either doesn’t know much about the world or is very talented,” he said, wondering about his identity. Above all, Lee In, who was checking the list of people who won the Gi Gi-ryeong match, fell into confusion as soon as he heard the name Kang Mong-woo, saying to himself, “That can’t be possible, it must be someone with the same name,” and Kim Myeong-ha also told Min Sang-hyo that Kang Mong-woo’s identity was “3 years ago.” As soon as he heard the news, “This is a betting badger who swept away the entire Go board on the city’s floor,” he had a stern expression on his face.

On the last day of Gi Gi-ryeong's match, Lee In visited the head of the match to personally confirm the name 'Kang Mong-woo'. Kang Hee-soo froze as soon as she saw Lee In, whom she had reunited with after three years, and Lee In was surprised to see Kang Hee-soo alive again. When Lee In heard that there was no one to play against Kang Hee-su, he ordered Kim Myeong-ha to play against him, and Kang Hee-su continued the game while receiving Lee In's gaze towards him.

Afterwards, Lee In, who personally took the place of Kim Myeong-ha, who was defeated by Kang Hee-soo, added, “It is better to let a stone in distress die rather than trying to save it,” and Kang Hee-soo said, “If you are going to die anyway, how can you raise your head and look at the sky? “He countered Lee In’s words without backing down even an inch, creating tension. Finally, Kang Hee-su said, “Baduk is played between two people, and they only communicate using stones. A conversation in which age, social status, and relationships between military and government do not matter. “Still, if being a petty person is a mortal sin, the person who will be brought into Yeongchwijeong in the future will have to choose a puppet who is quick to please and quick to please,” Lee In insisted, and ordered the fearless Kang Hee-su to become Gi Gi-ryeong.

Among these, at the end of the play, Kang Hee-soo was finally selected as Gi Dae-ryeong, further increasing the level of immersion in the play. Meanwhile, Lee In appeared from the darkness behind Kang Hee-soo, who was closely examining the secret Yeongchwijeong, where palace officials were prohibited from entering, heightening the tension. With cold eyes, Lee In said, “I think I received a report that you died three years ago,” and “You came back for revenge.” He harbored a plan to kill me. “No, is that so?” he harshly accused Kang Hee-soo of knowing that he came back with a traitor, making his hands sweat. Furthermore, Lee In said, “Even if you live, you are no longer alive, but you are no longer as good as dead. What should you do now? “Try to answer with your beautiful tongue,” he asked, and the frozen Kang Hee-soo and Lee In’s cold face glaring at him decorated the ending, creating an explosion of chilling tension.
