The Uncanny Counter Episodes 1 And 2 Recap
The premiere kicks off with a flashback. We meet a young version of So Mun, who is seated at the back of a car while he sketches a family portrait. He complains that his parents are prone to not keeping promises. In another scene, Detective Ga bleeds profusely on the road and gets surrounded by hooded men. At the same time, Mun’s car crashes but he survives. A sinister man approaches the vehicle but Mun cannot see him clearly.
Seven years later, So Mun lives with his grandmother, and he believes himself to be a guy with superpowers. He is still haunted by his past. Eventually, he hears about a famous noodle cafe, Eonni’s, operated by people who are weird. One of the owners, Ha-na, says that a level-2 spirit is plaguing the city. She and her crew of counters rush off to tackle the entity. But in the battle that follows, a counter named Cheol-Jung is killed.
The evil spirit is a female and she flees the scene to find a host — and the host happens to be So Mun. But the spirit had believed that Mun should have gone into a coma. But that does not happen. Mun has a dream that night where he meets a woman named Wi-gen. At the noodle shop, the counters deduce that the spirit was level 3. When they learn that the person hosting Wi-gen is Mun, Ha-Na sends a member to look for him.
When Mun is successfully located, the cafe’s employees tell him that they hunt down demons. They ask him to join the team. However, Mun is scared of dying before his grandparents and hence, denies the offer. But he is given a time of seven days to make a final decision.
