Well, there is not much to tell about episode 5 of Vampire Detective. With the introduction of our main antagonist Yo Na (Lee Chung Ah) last week, I was hoping the over-arching back story would finally get some more screen time. Wrong!
Rather than focus on the main mystery that was set in place back in episode 1 or even the fact that yes, San (Lee Joon) is supposed to be a vampire, we continue on with our next completely unrelated case.
San gives his customary momentary display of the fact that he does have powers and is a vampire, but as usual, absolutely nothing is mentioned about it. So why did this drama even bother to make him a vampire?
The final scene of this episode does show San receiving a phone call from Yo Na. We get a little taunting from her followed by a request to meet with him. Then the episode ends. That’s it.
