Moving Episodes 16 and 17 Recap

Moving Episode 16 starts with Gye-do stopping the bus at the police station. The North Korean infiltrator quickly escapes. At the school, when Mi-hyun asks Choi Il-hwan about his teaching career he reminisces about his days working at the school. The viewers are then shown a flashback of Il-hwan assisting the NDTP project and becoming a PE teacher at the school to train super kids. Years after years, he comes across various students and ultimately settles into the teacher job. When he meets Gye-do, he believes he will shine with his electric power.

Though Gye-do has the superpower, he fails to use/control it. Hence the principal, Mr. Raehyuk makes some school bullies attack Gye-do to see whether he can use his potential. But sadly, he gets beaten and Il-hwan labels him unqualified. After some more years, Naju’s daughter Se-eun catches Il-hwan’s eyes as she has the potential to see through like her mother.


Since she trusts Il-hwan, she reveals her secret to him and they start practicing. Meanwhile, Naju insists she doesn’t proceed with the power as she doesn’t want her daughter to lead the life she led. During practice, Se-eun faints and unfortunately she passes away due to cancer. This puts a toll on Il-hwan and he slowly starts disliking his secret agent job as he has fallen for the teacher role and loves all his students.

With all three parents at the school, left with the North Korean agents and the students, who will save Hee-so and Bong-seok from the other infiltrator? This is maybe where Doo-sik might come to save his son. Or probably Mi-hyun will find them both before it’s alte. Either way, the upcoming episodes will be highly intense and intriguing since it marks the season’s finale.

All superhumans including the parents and the kids will join to ward off the North Koreans. Additionally, Mr. Min will be in grave danger for the mission he has put out without the parents’ consent. So far the episodes are thrilling and extremely well-done. Hopefully, the finale will be a banger.
