Even though his death was concluded as an accident due to a natural disaster, Choi Go Myeon’s death still raises many questions. Is it true that his death was purely an accident?

Choi Go Myeon died not because of illness, so his death was unexpected. He died suddenly one morning while out walking his pet dog in the mountains behind his house. A large rock fell from above and hit his body, killing him on the spot.

This tragic incident was thought to have occurred due to a landslide. However, the day before the incident, it didn’t rain, making it hard to understand why the rock fell. Moreover, Choi Go Myeon was a fit person, diligent in exercising, and often climbed the mountain where the incident occurred. It is difficult to believe that he died in this way.

2. His Death Mirrors His Wife’s Novel

Another strange aspect of Choi Go Myeon’s death is that it eerily mirrors a story from one of his wife Hong Sa Kang’s (Lee Hye Young) mystery novels, Murder in the Frame. The details of the incident and the characteristics of the victim are identical between the novel’s story and Choi Go Myeon’s actual death.

Choi Go Myeon and Hong Sa Kang were not an ordinary couple. They hated each other but stayed married for reputation reasons. Choi Go Myeon often cheated on his wife, and Hong Sa Kang openly showed her hatred for him, even expressing a wish for him to be crushed by the iron plate decoration in his room.

3. Choi Go Myeon Was Investigating Someone Before He Died

Choi Go Myeon was a former prosecutor with a checkered past, involved in falsifying cases and slander that caused the death of No Yeong Won’s father. Despite this, he was an expert investigator.

Before he died, there was a scene where he was calling Jung Doo Man (Jung Woong In), asking him to investigate someone. However, it is not clear who this person was. Jung Doo Man only mentioned that the person had no suspicious records or activities on social media, which actually increases suspicion about their motives and identity.

Choi Go Myeon’s death is likely to be one of the mysteries that No Yeong Won will uncover, especially considering he was investigating a case that threatens his family’s happiness and integrity. What is the real secret behind Choi Go Myeon’s death in Bitter Sweet Hell? Keep following this drama, which airs every Friday and Saturday.
