Tae Joon might have betrayed his wife, but protecting her still takes top priority. Hye Kyung gets her third case and learns a secret she has to keep from Joong Won. Amber doesn’t know when to quit, Sang Il’s still on his Tae Joon must drop the trial refrain and our two guys meet with Hye Kyung in the middle.
Jae Sung continues to do what he does best: lie and cheat and manipulate, even behind bars. Some people listen, some people are doubtful and some people even come back for more poisoning. Sung Hee’s roped into the con and takes to it quite well, and Sung Il gives Jung Do the heads up he needs to know that Jae Sung is still working hard to get to him from behind the prison walls.
Seo Ri’s saved (thank goodness!) but Jun makes a discovery that just might put their dreams of a life together to an end. Poong Yeon finally lets go of his feelings. The candles are still getting lit. Hong Joo makes a desperate plea and Hyun Seo throws himself into the game, for one last time.
A couple of drops in the water are disturbing the currents and creating rippling changes that has Young Oh feeling things he can’t quite put a name on yet. Jin Sung’s still hellbent on people doing the right thing and when her idol shatters the image of perfection she’s built, it’s Young Oh who offers her comfort in his own way and it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing to see.
Everything ends on a sweet note for the drama that started off sweet and veered off into noble idiocy in the last episode. Thankfully, the idiocy only lasted one episode and this episode is all about redemption and having Soo Ho and Bo Nui end up together, with a little bit of Bo Ra matchmaking thrown in. Who needs luck when you’ve got Bo Ra wanting her sister to end up happy?
We get more of an understanding of our characters, what they’ve been through and why they’ve arrived at where they’re now at. No Eul’s still abrasive, Joon Young’s still dying, his mother still continues to ignore that he’s her son and we’re all bracing ourselves for the rollercoaster that this melodrama will surely be.
This is the episode of noble idiocy galore (brace yourself). Bo Nui’s intent on making herself and Soo Ho miserable but Soo Ho isn’t willing to give up without a fight. Thankfully, there’s Ryang Ha and Dal Nim to help us cope with it all.
This episode’s all Young Oh, how the people in his life have written him off and how the strangers who should be the last people to believe in him, end up doing so. It’s a beautiful transition from brokenness to self-discovery and no one has us as invested in him reclaiming the title of Doctor Lee Young Oh as much as Lee Young Oh himself.
Seo Woo is once again thinking only of herself and when we wonder how she ever became a doctor, we see the role model she has in her father and totally get it. Hye Jung’s relationship with her father is still rocky although her relationship with Ji Hong’s seeing great progress. Yoon Do’s willing to put himself out there, Soo Chul survives (thank heavens!) and Hye Jung takes a small and yet big step in her relationship with Ji Hong.
We meet our Korean ghostbusters and are introduced to our very interesting, core ghosts. One’s lost her memory and the other is what we’ll probably be, should we become ghosts: tailing our oppas about as we run our fingers through their hair (hahaha). The premise is set and the characters come into play. The drama though hasn’t quite found its footing just yet. Hopefully it gets better in episode two.
