What defines a psychopath? Someone with the genuine disease or someone who smiles and acts normal and commits atrocities and acts of betrayal. Jin Sung finally learns her lessons and begins to come around. Young Oh gets stabbed in the back over and over again. Kyung Joon is sneaky and we learn that Min Jae is nothing like we’d imagined.
Top 10 Moments:
- Gun Myung’s always been messing with his son’s head
We open with Young Oh working up the courage to enter his class. The minute he enters, he’s jumped by his classmates and immediately reacts, beating them over and over in order to protect himself. Except, when he turns around, he sees that what they’d been rubbing on his face had been chunks of icing sugar as they’d baked him a cake for him (no.no.no. So horrible. Poor kids. Poor Young Oh) and they’d bought gifts for him as well. Everyone shrinks back from him in fear and when Gun Myung comes to see him at school, Young Oh explains that the kids had had their backs to him and so he couldn’t see their faces. Gun Myung simply tells him to hide who he truly is and never let them see his face. So, Young Oh must learn to laugh when others are laughing and cry when they’re crying. And we see this happening through the years, Young Oh learning to react in accordance with the emotions he can read from others. We cut back to the present with Jin Sung making the arrest and when Young Oh tries to leave, she cuffs herself to him, stating that he’s been the lead surgeon in all the table death cases and there won’t be a third victim. Knowing that she caught him using drugs also solidifies her stance in arresting him and even Young Oh explaining that Dr. Shim is the sole witness for the mortality conference and the only person who can prove to the murders of Min Chul and Dong Jae, is not enough to get Jin Sung to change her mind. Young Oh then drags handcuffed Jin Sung with him all the way to the operating room where he is shocked to see Gun Myung performing the surgery (drats).
2. Jin Sung’s superior speaks some sense into her (we hope she actually listens)
Jin Sung takes Young Oh to the station (wait, so she’s really going ahead with this? Okay) and whilst the members of the violent crimes unit wait to see if she really will be able to pin the murders on Young Oh, Jin Sung informs him that she’s bought herself 48 hours by sending his ‘drugs’ to the lab and the time would give her all she needs to either find evidence or get him to confess. Young Oh asks if she really thinks he committed all those murders and Jin Sung asks why else his father would have asked her to arrest him if there wasn’t some basis to the statement. Young Oh tells her what we’re all thinking, she should have checked her facts before slapping handcuffs on him. At that point, one of the detectives notifies her that the test results are out and when she gets back, she’s surprised that there are vitamins in it. Young Oh is so surprised he laughs and tells Jin Sung that the person who needed 48 hours wasn’t her, but Gun Myung himself. With those words, he leaves. The head of the violent crimes unit then enters the interrogation room to inform Jin Sung that not only had she locked up an innocent man, she’d might have also given the perpetrator the time he needed to cover up his tracks. He calls her action an abuse of her authority and suggests she get her act together.
3. Gun Myung claims he did it for Young Oh, his adopted son
Back at Hyunsung, Young Oh spots Dr. Shim being wheeled out of the operation room, but all records of her surgery have been wiped. Min Jae who comes to touch him at this moment gets manhandled to the wall because he didn’t see her face at first. By the time he notices, everyone is shocked and the damage’s been done. He doesn’t dwell on it however as he spots Gun Myung at the elevators and rushes to confront him. He cuts straight to the point, asking what Gun Myung’s playing at considering that if Young Oh had performed the surgery, it would have been as perfect as Gun Myung’s had been. Gun Myung doesn’t agree however stating that Young Oh was already unstable by the time the doctor arrived. He points to the fact that should there have been another table death, then people would have thought Young Oh guilty of killing the others. Young Oh though points out to the fact that the one who suspects him the most is Gun Myung. Gun Myung responds by addressing him as Lee Young Oh, the 205th child left at the Grace Home for children, and tells him that he’s the one who turned Young Oh into a human being (uh, newsflash, he was born human. You turned him into a psychopath with a stunted growth). He tells Young Oh that Young Oh returned to the hospital and to Korea because he needed Gun Myung and reminds Young Oh yet again that anyone finding out who he really is, is the most fearsome thing. With that he gives a really creepy smirk and has Young Oh step out of the elevator. Young Oh walks back to his office in a daze (sweetie, your papa’s gone loco).
4. Min Jae has her own issues to deal with
After getting chewed out by his father for Hyunsung not making enough money, and by his brother for the murder talk going on in the hospital, Hyun Joon decides to kill two birds with one stone by increasing the caseload of all the doctors so they have to spend less time gossiping and more time making money. Min Jae though isn’t concerned about that because her sleazy professor: Jang Bae had cut out her name out of a research she’d worked on with him and had put up Sung Eun’s name instead. Jang Bae isn’t particularly repentant as he straight up tells Min Jae that he did it for his resume. Min Jae explains that she won’t get her professorship if she doesn’t have articles published and Jang Bae scoffs as he tells her that she won’t be getting it anyway, seeing that she went to a low class school (rat bastard). When Min Jae points out that she’s worked on 4 articles with him in the years she’s been his assistant and never gotten credit for it, all he says is a disinterested sorry as he tells her to leave his office. She heads out and starts to cry, until Young Oh calls her name. Taking note of her body language and her expression, he deduces that it’s a situation in which she needs comforting and then pulls her into a hug (awwwww). When she asks him why he isn’t asking her the reason for her tears, he saves himself by stating that he could already see her pain, meaning there wasn’t a need for questions. He hugs her again and just as Min Jae’s stating that it’s nice to date at work, what with the fact that she has someone on her side, another doctor walks in (hahaha) and Min Jae scrams. Alone with her, Young Oh tries to find out what the doctor’s thinking and she finally blurts out that she was scoffing at the fact that they all call him a genius when he’s just another regular guy in front of a pretty girl. Young Oh smiles at the words, reading it as proof that his ruse at trying to act normal is paying off.
5. Young Oh gets himself assigned as Dr. Shim’s doctor
Still working on that feeling, he approaches Gun Myung and requests to be assigned to Dr. Shim. When Gun Myung asks why, Young Oh states that he’s just requesting because he’s concerned for her, just as any normal doctor would. Plus, she’s his witness at the hearing. When Gun Myung tries to deny the request anyway, Young Oh leans forward to remind him that that’s what Gun Myung wants in the first place: for him to act normal. The words get Young Oh assigned to Dr. Shim and she gives Moon Kyung, the attending nurse, instructions that on no condition should Dr. Shim be moved. Outside the room, Kyung Joon meets with him and points out that since the mortality conference couldn’t hold (what with Young Oh being arrested and all), Young Oh should just drop the investigation so the JCI accreditation of the hospital, that would hold the next day, can go on smoothly. Young Oh however is convinced that a day is all he needs and promises to pull it off within the time frame. Away from Kyung Joon, he runs into Suk Joo who asks if it’s true that Dr. Shim’s in a coma and wonders when the woman will wake up. Young Oh simply answers that she doesn’t have much time and walks back into her room, pulls down the blinds and when they’re cut off from prying eyes tells Dr. Shim to wake up and open her eyes because he knows everything. At the words, Dr. Shim opens her eyes (so she’s been faking a coma this whole while?).
6. Empathy comes in varying shades
Jin Sung’s back to her job as a traffic cop and when Sergeant Park asks her about the case, she tells him that she’s scrapping it because she’s learned that she only causes trouble everywhere she goes. She sounds so downcast that Sergeant Park tries to cheer her up. But they don’t stay down for long as they spot a thief stealing a woman’s bag and taking off. When they apprehend the thief whose motorcycle collides with a curb and thus sends the thief flying, Jin Sung, whose concern is now for the thief, takes off his helmet and discovers that it’s Min Chul’s son. Meanwhile, Young Oh is talking to Dr. Shim and asking about the lesion she’d found. She begs him not to make her talk and Young Oh wonders if she thinks she can stay silent forever. He asks her to talk to him and when he figures out that she doesn’t trust him, asks her what she would do should he head out at the moment and make the announcement that she’s awake. She panics and Young Oh tells her to think about it as she doesn’t have much time. Next thing we see, he’s on his way out of the room and Dr. Shim goes into cardiac arrest. Suk Joo and Sung Eun are the first doctors on scene and try to resuscitate her but nothing works. Young Oh then walks in after them and casually calls out the time of death (Young Oh, you really have to learn to start faking empathy). Next, he tells Moon Kyung to contact Dr. Shim’s family so they can make funeral arrangements. He then heads to Dr. Shim’s office where he sees that the entire office has been trashed. The person searching however didn’t have Dr. Shim tell them where the flash drive she hid was and soon we see Young Oh, who she did tell, locate the flash drive. We flashback to after his conversation with Dr. Shim where she’d expressed her fear that the ‘person’ won’t let her out of the hospital and she can’t say anything until she’s away and safe from the hospital. Young Oh then tells her his plan and puts her into an induced cardiac arrest to facilitate her escape. Everything goes as planned and Young Oh checks the information on the flash drive. What he sees, stuns him.
7. We now know who killed Dong Jae. Or do we?
That night, Young Oh watches the rain fall with Yoon Kyung and points her out as the person who had killed Dong Jae. He continues that Ji An, her daughter and Min Chul had had the same lesion in their hearts, caused by a new immune system and they’d both been treated by the same doctor using new technology. Yoon Kyung tries to feign ignorance, Young Oh names Dong Jae as the other doctor who had been treating Ji An and states that other than the lead surgeon, the only other person who can cause a death in the OR is the anesthesiologist, Yoon Kyung, who was checking on the patient’s vitals. He continues that seeing that Yoon Kyung didn’t mind him operating on Ji An even after he’d been banned from the OR, it means she knew that everything he’d done had been perfect, meaning she knew he wasn’t the killer. And if he isn’t the killer, then Yoon Kyung is. The words collide with the blaring of an ambulance’s siren and Yoon Kyung goes running, out into the rain to meet the ambulance, screaming for someone to point her to a child who’d been involved in the accident and who could give her daughter a new heart (damn, that’s brutal). Suk Joo finds her, shakes her to her senses and then takes her back into the hospital where Suk Joo shakes as she tells Suk Joo that the rain had reminded her of the accident. She begs him to please succeed and Young Oh, who neither of them had noticed was watching them, turns and walks away from the sight.
8. Jin Sung finally gets it
Jin Sung takes Min Chul’s son out for a meal but the boy is furious and not interested in eating. Jin Sung, frustrated, growls at him for skipping his meals and then calls him stupid and blind for choosing to steal when there was a police car right in front of him (hahahaha). She storms out of the restaurant where Sergeant Park joins her. When he asks her what’s wrong with the boy, she grumbles that he’s on a hunger strike (hahaha), then asks what will happen to him. Turns out he will have to be arraigned but Sergeant Park figures he will get off with a light sentence because it’s his first offense. He then calls Jin Sung’s attention and they spy on Kim Min Chul’s son who now that she’s not present is slurping down the food (awwww). As Jin Sung watches him, she states that he’s not the criminal and wonders why he has to be punished (exactly Jin Sung. The same goes for Young Oh too). Next thing we see, she’s at the marketplace, shopping for Kim Min Chul’s son.
9. The apology that starts us on the journey of redeeming Jin Sung
She gets to Kim Min Chul’s apartment which she finds in a messy state, and gets to work cleaning and then stocking up the pantry (awwww). The flickering florescent bulb has her making the decision to change it and she’s just turned around when she spots Young Oh, the sight of which startles her. Young Oh tells her not to scream and grumbles that he’s not happy to see her either. Jin Sung then asks him if she can scream if she’s happy to see him (wait what? Are you serious Jin Sung? Don’t be going halfway with this whole turn of a new leaf business. Cuz nobody should be breaking our Young Oh’s heart). Young Oh’s stunned and Jin Sung explains that she’s been thinking of how best to apologize to him and then tells him she’s sorry for the way she’d treated him the other day. Young Oh looks stunned (is it that no one has ever apologized for misjudging him, because if that’s the case, that’s one more strike against Gun Myung). Next thing we see, Young Oh is searching through Min Chul’s house whilst Jin Sung tells him that she’s sure he’s looking for Min Chul’s medical records, but he shouldn’t bother because it’s not in the house. She tells him that she wonders about what his relationship with his father is like that Gun Myung would have reported him the way he had and gestures at the picture of Min Chul and his son, stating that that is how a relationship between a father and his son should look like. The words have Young Oh going back to the post it notes on the framed picture and he sees that Min Chul had actually written them on his prescription sheet. At the same time, Suk Joo’s in Dong Jae’s office where Dong Jae’s fax machine lights up and faxes him documents that has him calling an unseen person and asking if the person was Min Chul’s doctor.
10. We learn who the killer is and Min Jae… What a bitch!!!!!!!
Young Oh meets with Kyung Joon to show him the prescription and name the person who’s signature is on it as Dong Jae’s killer. As he speaks, he runs through the characteristics of the person, starting with the man’s closeness with Dong Jae, the fact that he’s an authority figure who the hospital staff would trust and the one who presently has Min Chul’s heart. As they speak, Kyung Joon receives a call from the nosy reporter who tells him about the exclusive he’s picked up and asks if he can run with the story. Kyung Joon decides to use one stone to kill two birds with the revelation and Young Oh insists that it has to be proved that there was no mistake with his surgery. Meanwhile, Suk Joo is racing to meet someone, whilst Young Oh meets Gun Myung and asks him who exactly he’s trying to protect in getting Young Oh to keep who he truly is a secret, Young Oh himself, or Gun Myung. He then smiles and tells Gun Myung not to worry as everything will soon be revealed. Next thing we see, Kyung Joon is walking into the mortality conference and informing the doctors that the deaths have all been murders and they’ve discovered who the killer is. And as we see Suk Joo race to meet the unseen doctor, and Jin Sung piece together who the guilty party is, we learn through both of them that Min Chul’s doctor is Soon Ho. Except, Kyung Joon names Young Oh as the murderer (wait what?!!!!). When Young Oh asks for proof, Min Jae stands up and tells everyone that Young Oh is a dangerous psychopath who should not be working with them (what a grade A bitch!!!!!!!).
Character I wanted to bitchslap:
Because not only had I felt sorry for her earlier in the episode, I’d actually thought she was a pretty decent fit for Young Oh. But this bitch backstabbed him. Sold him out and for what?! Maybe to become a professor? I hope you take whatever it is they offer you and choke on it. Bitch!
Headache inducing moment:
Because of all the times and all the places, she chooses now to betray him. She chooses that moment to strip him bare in the presence of all the doctors and everyone he works with. She turns the one place he’d told her was his hiding place into a spotlight for everyone to peer into. Damn, I have a migraine.
This episode’s a tall glass of Holy Smokes. Because truthfully, Holy Smokes I Did Not Expect Min Jae To Be Such A Backstabbing Bitch!
