The Kidnapping Day Episode 10 Recap

Episode 10 begins with Hye-eun and Jayden having a meeting where the latter understands that it is Hye-eun who was behind the kidnapping and murder. While he wants to take revenge for her disruption, Hye-eun shows him the secret of the pendant and a video of experiments being conducted on Ro-hee which intrigues Jayden.

She then reveals to him that the pendant will reveal the file only with the help of a key which is now in her hands. If Jayden wants the key and the clip of the experiments, he needs to bring her 100 million dollars in cash. With this, she walks away while Jayden prepares the money for the exchange after confirming that there is indeed a hidden drive in the pendant.

Unaware of Ro-hee’s condition, Myung-joon and Sang-yoon come to a truce and begin looking for her at the Sokcho docks. Sang-yoon calls his colleague and gets information about a boat having arrived from Russia. He heads there and gets the information that Ro-hee has been admitted to a hospital.

While Myung-joon and Sang-yoon get further information about the same, Ro-hee cleverly sneaks out of the hospital when Ho-young isn’t looking. Finding Ro-hee missing, he soon tracks her and heads her way while Sang-yoon gets information about the same and heads to their location.

On the other hand, Hye-eun hires some people and is prepared to meet Jayden for the exchange. She later meets him at the parking lot after he has moved the money bag into her car, and hands over the promised items.

The next day, Sang-yoon’s captain speaks of his dissatisfaction regarding the kidnapping case being handed over to another team and decides to stand with his team. Meanwhile, Jayden finds out that the file can open only on one device which is Choi Jin-tae’s laptop.

Elsewhere, Ro-hee reveals to Sang-yoon that she cannot remember anything from the 20th which was the day before her kidnapping. Her father always made sure to keep her asleep for not more than eight hours, however, this did not happen on the 20th. This means that someone else had a hand in putting her to sleep and this can be a clue for them.

While they discuss this, Myung-joon cannot help thinking about Hee-ae and also about Hye-eun whose actions have surprised him. He asks Sang-yoon to take care of Ro-hee while he meets them alone and Sang-yoon puts his trust in him that Myung-joon will not leave without Ro-hee.

Myung-joon moves from there while elsewhere, Jayden kills Ho-young after getting the order from the higher-ups. Meanwhile, Hye-eun converts the money into cryptocurrency after which she receives a call from Myung-joon to meet.

The next day, the two meet at a church.

The Kidnapping Day Episode 10 Review

Episode 10 had our little Ro-hee reunite with Myung-joon and also gave us the chaotic yet soft-hearted duo of Myung-joon and Sang-yoon. These two are really strong-minded yet soft-hearted men who really care about the genius child Ro-hee.

This trio is really what I’ve been waiting for and I hope to get this trio’s content by the end of the show. On the other hand, the secrets of the pendant, the higher-ups who make decisions for Jayden and the future that is still blurred to Ro-hee; we have a lot happening this week already.

As we slowly move towards the finale week of the show, there is only more to come and the secret behind what happened on the 21st is not far. What do you think happened? Let us know in the comments below!
