The Atypical Family Episode 3 was certainly one of the more emotional episodes of the series so far, which has so far been more light-hearted and interesting. However, the third episode lets the viewers into the past of Bok Gwi-ju, which has been somewhat of a question mark up until this point, especially when it comes to the death of his wife.

While Gwi-ju’s past was truly horrifying, those memories are now left behind and the focus in the second half of the third episode and episode 4 has completely shifted to the female protagonist of The Atypical Family, Do Da-hae. Undoubtedly, this character and what she is truly up to when it comes to the Bok family has everyone intrigued.

Everyone in the Bok family apart from Dong-hee has begun trusting Da-hae, including Gwi-ju after he wonders if she could be the reason behind his powers slowly and steadily coming back to him, which has also heavily been reaffirmed by his father in The Atypical Family Episode 4. As for Da-hae, her discoveries about the Bok family only continue to increase, especially after Gwi-ju makes revelations too.
