Can Yoo Je Yi and Han Ji Hyuk stop Baek Mo Sa? Will Han J Hyuk die?
The Veil Episode 11 ended at a massive cliffhanger. Han Ji Hyuk discovered the security breach. Elsewhere in Yeouio, Yoo Je Yi discovered a timer for a bomb. What will happen to Je Yi and Han Ji Hyuk? What are Baek Mo Sa’s grand plans? Is he after the NIS or dismantling the country itself which abandoned him?
Baek Mo Sa never had any intention to bomb the memorial service. It was a decoy to divert their intention and distract the NIS from discovering their real plans. The timer went off but there was no explosion. Elsewhere in Je Yi’s location, it was an EMP bomb that exploded.
It stopped all the electronic devices, mobiles, phone networks, and car services. Je Yi was stranded without a working phone and unable to contact for help. She spots Baek Mo Sa and follows him.
The EMP Plan
Baek Mo Sa planned to use an EMP bomb to erase all the financial data of the bank stored in the main data center. Exploding EMP will create chaos and delete all the financial transactions like savings, loans, mortgages, etc. Je Yi contacts Han Ji Hyuk and informs him about her findings.
Yoo Je Yi & Han Ji Hyuk against Baek Mo Sa
Baek Mo Sa plans to uproot the country and instigate the people of the nation. He took control of the Hanmin Bank’s data center. Baek Mo Sa kidnapped all the employees and customers of the bank and set an ultimatum to the NIS to make a choice. The government has to choose the people’s safety or the financial data of the data center.
Choi Sang Kyun went to kill Lee Il Hwan but was stopped by Jung Yae Tae who brings him back to NIS. With Sang Hyun’s help, they were able to unlock the center and let Je Yi and Ji Hyuk enter the scene.
This was the elaborate trap for the NIS from the beginning. Je Yi and Ji Hyuk discovered the fake EMP bomb and knew Baek Mo Sa had no intention of sparing the hostages from the very beginning. He was aware that the government will not choose their people and he planned accordingly.
