At present, she informs Joon-young about Dongsu and his link with the GY meditation cult. Simultaneously, the Team 2 leader finds the corpse of Seong-wook, the man who decided to tell the truth to Kang-hyun before getting murdered by the GY members. Team 2 captain finds that Seong-wook’s last two calls were to Kang-hyun and they ask her to come to the station. Over there when she hears about his death, she gets shocked. The chief gets in and mentions Seong-wook’s name before anyone even tells him. This raises her suspicion and she questions him, only to be put in probation for violation of authority.

Kang-hyun decides to take a break and leaves for a temple stay. Meanwhile, I-soo digs up everything and learns about the Oryun community and the connection it has with Kang-hyun’s father. With the help of Dongsu’s autopsy, they understand that he was drowned to death but he didn’t drown in the river but his already dead body was thrown into it. With his influence, I-soo learns about the Oryun community and its founder who is called as Bori. Bori is treated like God there and so I-soo gets to meet him.

To his surprise, Bori is a very young handsome man. At the same time, we learn that Kang-hyun has joined the GY meditation center with a pseudonym and by disguising herself with a long hair wig and glasses. She tries to learn what’s the deal at the place. I-soo gets to speak to Woo-hyuk, the Bori himself. Woo-hyuk explains how when he struggled in life and decided to die, death did come to him only to lead him to a vision of all of his past lives.

I-soo teases him for his made-up story. Woo-hyuk says that he wants people to have a better next life and that’s why many are dying by suicide as they misunderstand him. I-soo doesn’t buy his story and that’s when Woo-hyuk pulls in about I-soo’s late mother to confuse him. That night after a tiny ceremony, the participants are asked to drink something. While everyone drinks, Kang-hyun pretends and collect some of the essence in her kerchief.

When she speaks with her roommate, she learns about her tough life and her wish to be born into a rich family in her next life. After everyone sleeps, Kang-hyun escapes and goes inside Woo-hyuk’s place to check for details. The woman who takes care of the participants finds Kang-hyun missing in her bed. At Woo-hyuk’s private cabin, Kang-hyun hears some noise and prepares for the worst.

However, she manhandles I-soo and the two then calm down. They discuss the deal and I-soo demands he stay to help her out. Kang-hyun wants I-soo to be safe and tries to send him away. They both then hear footsteps approaching and the episode ends.

Flex X Cop Episode 11 Review

Something about cults makes me interested as well as afraid. Why do people want their fellow people to believe in a religious structure for literally nothing? Why do people actually believe in such a cult and risk their lives? How come some blindly trust certain people and decide to worship them? It’s so sad that this isn’t just happening in the movies/series but in real life as well.

Whatever I-soo and Kang-hyun are about to find, we surely know that it’s not just going to help save Kang-hyun’s father but also share some light about the dark side of humanity. A take-home message definitely awaits us in the next episode.
