49 Days: Episode 8

Han Kang! Kang-aaaaah! Why so cute? You’re killing me with your I-was-gruff-at-sixteen thing. Your bewilderment at feeling feelings is the most adorable thing about this drama, which is saying somethin’, since I’m including Reaper Boy and his array of pouty faces. Oh, now they’re warring… Can’t. Choose. Just. One.

Maybe they can have a shouting match, or a pout-off, to determine who is the meanest-with-a-heart-of-marshmallow of them all. Yeah, I’d buy tickets to that.

 
EPISODE 8 RECAP

In-jung walks into Min-ho’s apartment, and to her utter horror, she finds Ji-hyun (in Yi-kyung’s body) glaring right back at her. Ji-hyun’s the one with the upper hand here, despite being the help: for one, she’s the one with the proper invite, and two, she knows that In-jung’s relationship with Min-ho is super-secret. She turns that fact around on her, asking what the secretary is doing here, and how she knew the lock code.

In-jung lies that she’s here on an errand to deliver food, and Ji-hyun accepts it with a cold send-off. In-jung leaves, unable to shake the feeling that something is terribly amiss here. Yeah, I’d say so. That’s what happens when you date a sneaky bastard.

Sneaky Bastard arrives home soon after she leaves, and is quite flustered when Ji-hyun tells him about In-jung’s little visit. She notices that he comes home with a file, which he takes into his room.

He calls In-jung and suggests dinner out to do some damage control. (When he works In-jung like that, it makes my hair stand up on end.) Meanwhile, Ji-hyun re-enters the apartment to search for the mystery file, which he’s locked in his safe.

In-jung can’t understand why he’s hired Yi-kyung of all people as a housekeeper, which he just tries to brush off as no big deal. But she points out how out of character it is for him to help someone because she got fired, or give her a second chance when she was so rude to him.

He asks if in the two years he’s been with Ji-hyun, if he ever fell for her. She answers no. So…he was faithful to you…behind her back? Doesn’t that like, negate the definition of faithful? Whatever. No honor amongst these thieves. He refuses to discuss the matter further, feeling it beneath him to even consider falling for someone of Yi-kyung’s position. Evil AND snooty? You’re just going for the trifecta, aren’t you?

Ji-hyun returns home, finding that her new schedule gives her more free time. She decides to go for a run, deciding that the only thing she can do to repay Yi-kyung is to eat well and exercise. Aw, that’s adorable. I kinda love her for that. And for the way she talks to Yi-kyung, like she’s really an unni.

During her run, she starts getting chased by the sound of a ghost, running along beside her, and she freaks out. Um… duh, it’s your Scheduler, and HELLO, you’re a ghost too!

Reaper Boy shows up in workout gear, complete with sneakers that have wings on them. This kid’s wardrobe alone is a spectacle worthy of its own recaps. He teases her for not having any friends to gather tears from, and she makes excuses for them that they’re busy, and they don’t know how dire the situation is for her.

He figures that she’s trying to kill two birds with one stone, working for Min-ho, and raps her daily routine at her (gah, as if he isn’t cute enough). She asks if he’s ever just thought about his life for four days, which of course he hasn’t because he’s not alive.

She tells him that being trapped in Yi-kyung’s house made her realize how precious each day was, and how many things you could accomplish in just one day. Stop making me feel lazy, Show.

She promises to make each day count. He’s proud of her for growing up a little, but makes sure to nag that she not get into any more scrapes, please. She puts her arm around him, grateful for his concern, and he puts his arm around her and adds: “I’m worried about ME.” Heh. He points out that she’s his last troublemaker (because she’s the last of his reaper duties at the end of his five-year term). Yeah, I’m sure it’s just smooth sailing from here on out. No trouble at all.

He disappears, and she shouts that she’ll call. He looks on from above and scoffs that she thinks that they’re friends or something, all the while holding his arm out like she’s still there.

In-jung stops by Kang’s to do a little digging, and asks the waitress why Kang fired Yi-kyung if he likes her. She gets back an answer she doesn’t like: because she made a move for Min-ho. She gleans a second tidbit from that news too, realizing that Kang thinks a lot of Ji-hyun (to protect her fiancé), when they all assumed he disliked her.

Kang, meanwhile, is still worrying over Yi-kyung/Ji-hyun, thinking that she’s working at a bar because of him. Manager Oh catches him mid-reverie and tells him to go find her then, if he’s so worried.

Ji-hyun heads home and when she pops out, remembers to thank Yi-kyung sweetly. At the new coffee shop, Yi-kyung gets her first customer of the night: Dr. Noh. He smiles and says, “I seem like a stalker, right?” Haha—I was just going to say that exact thing! Points for self-awareness?

She tells him that he did the best he could as a doctor, and that “it” wasn’t his fault. He agrees—he’s always done his best as a doctor, and knows that he did everything he could. But then he adds that when he met her five years ago, he was a newlywed.

He had met Yi-kyung at the lowest point in her life, when he was at his happiest. But then three years ago, he watched his wife die in a car accident. He explains that there are some things that people can’t understand unless they go through it themselves.

He tells her that if she can’t forget, then to just miss him—that’s what he did, because he missed her so much. Okay, I’m now convinced that he’s not a stalker. Whew.

His words stir something in her, and she finally takes out a picture at home, as Ji-hyun watches. It’s a picture from grade school, of Yi-kyung with her little brother, Yi-soo. She finally lets herself remember and miss him, and she cries, as the Scheduler’s song “Scarecrow” plays on the soundtrack.

Ji-hyun wakes up and goes to Min-ho’s apartment to officially start work, and he adds a slew of tasks for her to do, including hand-washing his things, because he’s a little princess.

But then he notices the burn on her hand (from the espresso machine the night before) and it weighs on him. It finally niggles at his conscience (I know—he has one?) enough for him to duck out of work in the middle of the day to go back home.

In-jung spots him driving away and catches him red-handed in another lie, so she rushes over to Kang’s. She makes up the excuse that Min-ho is going ahead with the Haemido project believing that Kang is still onboard, and that Kang ought to go in person to make it clear, either way.

Ji-hyun uses her time to search for the file, finally discovering his secret safe, but Min-ho arrives before she can even make an attempt at safecracking. He gives her ointment for her burn, totally lying that he didn’t come back just for that.

They discover that while they were arguing, the pot she left on the stove has started to burn, and Min-ho rushes to open the door…just in time for Kang to appear, unannounced. Ruh-roh.

Kang flips his lid to see Yi-kyung there, and tries to wrist-grab her out of there. But she holds her ground, declaring that this is where she wants to stay. Even Min-ho looks surprised at that. In her head, Ji-hyun apologizes to Kang, that she’s got unfinished business here.

Poor Kang-ah. He’s all turned around, from jealousy mixed with his protective instinct, all the while being totally rejected. He asks, angry and disappointed, “Was it this all along?” She turns her back to him, and starts to cry.

Kang leaves, angry at himself for worrying over Yi-kyung so much that he was planning on finding her. Ji-hyun cries in the bathroom, unable to make things right with Kang. He heads back to work in a bear of a mood, and trashes his office, remembering her words that she had no interest in Min-ho, now thinking they’re all lies.

Meanwhile, Min-ho actually smiles to himself, thinking that Yi-kyung really does like him, what with her outright declaration to Kang that she wants to stay. He suggests they go out to dinner, and takes her to a small family restaurant that Ji-hyun notes he’s never brought her to.

He says it’s a place his mother used to frequent. She makes a jab that he must’ve brought his fiancée here, and that she has no intention of being treated like a woman by him. He calls what he thinks is her bluff: if she isn’t interested, why didn’t she leave with Kang when he re-offered her a job?

He says that he doesn’t trust a poor woman’s pride, which is completely condescending, of course, but it also sounds like he says it out of personal experience—as in, he’s familiar with being poor, and the lengths a person will go to, to rise above it. It’s an assumption on my part, but I think it speaks to his character’s motivation.

After eating they part, and she walks away wondering why he brought her to a place that’s special to him…a place he never brought Ji-hyun-in-Ji-hyun’s-body. She thinks back to all his weird behavior, and it dawns on her…”Kang Min-ho, what is this? Do you like Song Yi-kyung…I mean…me?”

At home, Ghost-Ji-hyun asks Yi-kyung what all this means. Does he like her? Or Yi-kyung? Yeah, it’s confusing for the rest of us too.

She follows Yi-kyung to work, and calls the Scheduler to meet her there. She whines that for a Scheduler, he sure does make people wait around a lot, but he thinks she should be grateful he even meets her at all.

He asks why they’re here, and she reminds him that he’s the one who doesn’t like being at Yi-kyung’s house, and he just breezes, “Here, there…” Another hint that it’s not so much the place as it is the third party involved that gives him that uncomfortable feeling.

She asks him for a favor: to track down Song Yi-soo. He tells her that he’s not a Help Center, and to do it herself. Her remaining days are his last days as a Scheduler too, so he’s got a lot to do before his term is up. Like rock out in Hongdae?

Ji-hyun: Cold bastard. You were a person once. When you were alive, you must’ve loved somebody.
Scheduler: I could’ve never had the chance to love anyone. I died early, you see. At 23. Shin Ji-hyun, have you died at 23? What do you think it feels like, to die at 23?
Ji-hyun: Why wouldn’t I know? It feels totally awful.
Scheduler: No, it feels unfinished. Crazy unfinished.
Ji-hyun: I thought you couldn’t remember anything.
Scheduler: My memories are gone, but the feeling remains. Do you think I’m living large as a scheduler for no reason? I died so young that I’m living out the life I didn’t get to live.

Ooof. Cut my heart out and serve it on a plate, why don’t you. Ji-hyun sighs that she feels bad for him too. He tells her to stop wasting his precious time with matters concerning Yi-kyung, then. But as he whirls around to leave, he comes face to face with her.

It’s a beautiful moment, the two of them suspended between dimensional rifts, the closeness stirring his heart. It shakes him, and he tells Ji-hyun not to call him with Yi-kyung around anymore, and leaves.

In-jung is dying of curiosity to find out what happened when she sent Kang over to Min-ho’s the other day, and she decides that Kang’s birthday is the perfect excuse. She knows that Seo-woo likes Kang and already has a present ready for him, and suggests they stop by tonight.

Aw, poor Seo-woo, who doesn’t know a thing about Kang’s undying crush on her best friend. It’s going to be even harder for Ji-hyun to get tears from Seo-woo if she finds out that Kang’s ALSO got a crush on Yi-kyung.

Dad makes an impromptu visit to the office, spurring Min-ho to follow him to the hospital in fear that something’s up. He witnesses Dad throwing up for what he realizes is now the second time. He senses that something’s amiss, and goes to ask the doctor, who TOTALLY JUST TELLS HIM, wtf? Anyway, Dad’s got a brain tumor, and he refuses to be operated on with Ji-hyun in her current state.

Ji-hyun spends her day in a war against the safe and its six-digit code. She actually does the math to find out the number of possibilities of six-digit combos, and hangs her head in frustration. She starts searching for some clues, and finds today’s date marked on Min-ho’s calendar as Kang’s birthday.

Manager Oh goes to wake up Birthday Boy, who’s been on a downward spiral, following his outburst at Yi-kyung. He drags him out and has to inform him that it’s his birthday today, and gives him traditional birthday soup.

Kang looks down, surprised that it has mussels in it, and asks if his mom told him that he likes it this way. Manager Oh tells him that Yi-kyung made the soup; she dropped it off earlier because she made too much and had extra.

He peers down at the soup, as we flashback to his high school days, when Mom had come to school bearing soup on his birthday. He acted like a brat, rejecting her and throwing the soup on the ground.

Later in class, Ji-hyun heads to the front to do a magic trick, asking for bets on where her bottle cap will end up. Kang reliably makes a snide remark so she singles him out on the bet: if she wins, he has to do whatever she says.

He loses, and follows her outside, where she spreads out a lunchbox feast and tells him that his punishment is to eat with her. He looks down and sees his mother’s soup. Angry and embarrassed, he asks her if she saw everything.

Ji-hyun: “You’re the size of a mountain, but you treat your mom that way?” As in: you’re grown, but why are you still acting like a child? She basically has to bully him into eating the soup, and he finally caves, but only if she turns around while he eats.

Omg, his embarrassment is the cutest thing. She happily turns around and tells him to eat every last drop. He obliges, even cracking a smile, while her back is turned. I can see why he fell in love with her. And also why she never knew.

Back in the present, he puts his spoon down, head and heart totally spun around. He shouts, exasperated, “Why the hell is this woman like this?!” LOL.

He asks Manager Oh if Yi-kyung really brought this, and he confirms it, adding that she technically asked him not to say anything. That just confuses Kang even more, as he says, “This is my mother’s birthday soup. I don’t know what this feeling in my heart is. Is it because of Shin Ji-hyun, or Song Yi-kyung? I don’t know.”

And with that, he bolts, running right past In-jung and Seo-woo. He heads straight to Min-ho’s place and rings the doorbell and bangs on the door shouting Yi-kyung’s name.

She hesitates, but finally lets him in, and he asks her again why she’s here. “If you’re interested in Min-ho, then say so, and this’ll be the end of it.” He waits, and she says nothing. That’s enough of an answer for him, as he tells her to stop it then, and drags her out, laundry be damned.

 
COMMENTS

Raah! Kang-ah! I’m totally swooning right now. Well, I pretty much feel the same way about Laundry Min-ho, so go, go Kang! I’m kind of torn between wanting him to figure things out and not (because he’s got a lot of the puzzle pieces, this guy), but either way his character is progressing nicely.

I kind of laughed to see him as a teenager, being just as gruff to his mom for reasons yet unknown, because I dunno why—I just like the idea that he’s always been a curmudgeony guy. Like an old man trapped in the body of a sixteen-year old. Well, a thirtysomething playing sixteen, but whatever. I lived through 90210. I can suspend my disbelief for just about anything.

I’m finally coming around to the Ji-hyun/Kang pairing too, not that I was against it or anything. But her character is progressing nicely too, so I like the idea that they’re both growing as people because of each other, unwittingly.

Well, the Scheduler also has a lot to do with Ji-hyun’s growth, particularly her increasingly sweet relationship with Yi-kyung (one-sided though it is). I like that she’s becoming less selfish and actually spending some of her precious time taking care of Yi-kyung’s body and trying to find her brother.

I’m sure it’s not a spoiler at this point to discuss the Scheduler as Yi-soo, though of course the drama has yet to give the final word. But even with the one encounter in the coffee shop and her moment with the picture, Jung Il-woo and Lee Yo-won play the moments with such conflicting emotion, that I can’t wait for their real reactions when their connection becomes transparent.

I think he was her younger brother and they were poor and she cooked instant ramien every meal to save on money. He couldn't take it anymore and just exploded one day. He yelled "I'm so sick of you....cooking ramien every day!" That last part was edited. Then he stormed out, got on his bike and crashed and died. She was filled with guilt. That's why she eats those ramien cups every day, to punish herself.

oh wow, so that's why she eats ramien everyday for the last 5 years. i didn't notice, but is it the same brand of ramien cup or does she eat whatever is available? because you know it would be more of a punishment if she eats the same brand of ramien cup that she served him last.

Obviously it's the same flavour. Like a frozen Last Supper kind of thing. Only difference is you keep on repeating it like Groundhog Day or Source Code. She's torturing herself by gorging on those awful noodles every meal. She wouldn't allow herself the pleasure of different flavours. And she slurps down the ramien when they're super hot so she'll feel the PAIN. If Dr Noh examines her cheeks inside, he'll notice they're very badly scalded. That's another reason why she doesn't talk much. Lots of ulcers from scalding-hot ramien inside.

omg...the "hot" scheduler is yikyung's brother...nooooooo... nways... i guess its an interesting twist.. id like it better if he was her bf though... i think that the scheduler is somehow connected to the dr...may be he uses the dr's body to protect yikyung...(but then it doesnt make sense coz when she tries to commit suicide in the first ep both the dr and the scheduler are there) im just crazy i guess ;)...another assumption is that may be yikyung was the person who passed the 49 day challenge but she was too late..coz the same time she came back to life her "bf" aka "bro" aka "hot scheduler" committed suicide...dang i'm sure im crazy about 49 days now...hhehehe.

thanks for the recap again..at least it's easier to understand the meaning of their actions...

i too believe that the Scheduler is the brother she lost in that accident...she's probably that way not only bec they were orphans but because she blames herself for his death
i know that it's odd for a sibling to be so out of it that she's almost similar to a dead girl walking but i'm sure the deep is that wound that she can't undig herself out of the hole she put herself into and the fact that she's so alone!
this series not only make you reflect about life but also as to who will actually be there to 'mourn' for you when you're gone!
how many people did you really meet and had given some of your life to them that made them a better person because of what you brought into their lives and what parents go thru when something so tragic happens to their kids.
and how many 'real' friends you have and one's true Faith!

Yes, the story line is really building up nicely.

The restaurant that MH took YK would eventually need explaining. Wonder if he took IJ there too?

Thanks for the recap.
We have seen so far the interactions of Kang or Minho with YK (with Jihyun inside). I am really curious how the writer settle Kang/ Minho with the actual Yi Kyung. Say, after 49 days JH is able or not able to return to her body, what happen with the relationship between YK and Kang or YK and Minho? I mean she doesn't even know them. Cuz the YK (without JH in her body) only interact with the doctor at night. hmmm...

I think she is starting to realize Kangah likes the person living in YK's body, but he has yet to say anything to her about the resemblance to coma-JH.

And, don't forget, she still thinks that Kang-ah hates JH.

WE see it, when Kang-ah substitutes JH in his imagination. but she has no idea that she gave away a ton of clues with her magic, her finger picking, her smile and the mussels-in-the-seaweed-soup.

That Scheduler and Yi-Kyung moment melted my heart seriously I felt so much emotion from that scene I thought I was gonna explode! I've never felt such intense moment in any of the dramas I've watched.

Omg I replayed the scene about 10 times, so breathtaking O__O I totally squealed like "...EEEEEEEEEEEP~ I KNEW IT!!! OH MY GOD I KNEW ITTTTT!!! OMG *replay*"

I even went back to episode one with the body lying dead on the road, its definitely the scheduler O_O another possibility could be that theyre sibilings? but I really want them to be lovers...*squee*

aaaahhh! cant wait for more, I love 49 days!

Here's more guessing game -

MinHo actually wanted to save the President's daughter (from abduction) but got the wrong girl thinking InJung is Pres's daughter (there was an episode saying IJ stayed with JH at some point).

Knowing later the boo-boo and not able to get rid of IJ, he decided to loop IJ into his plan. That's how he ended up with JH and messing around with IJ whom he doesn't love.

At the end of the day, it will be IJ who will break the arrangement and inform the world about his evil plan.

Ta-da!

I was thinking that too. First, the abduction was stage. It seems to be his modus operandi to stage some rescue situation since he did it again to meet Ji Hyun. Second, Min Ho's face fell with disappointment when he asked her name and she said In Jung.

Your theory may be correct.

Didn't they make a point of saying that IJ used to live with JH? Was she on her way to their home?

Ps I really love your theory that Minho was speaking from experience. I suspected he was not v well off to start w when he commented that Kang looked just like a rich man's son lying ard on his couch listening to music when he visited. Sounds like what an outsider would say.
Fantastic recap!!! Spot on interpretation -- so enlightening!!

2. Love the spunky Ji Hyun. Totally giving IJ the pits at the start of the ep. Way to go girl!!!!

" when he commented that Kang looked just like a rich man’s son lying ard on his couch listening to music when he visited. Sounds like what an outsider would say."

Thank you for explaining that scene! I have been wondering what MH said to Kang during that scene.

Thx for recapped this series!!!
And btw,until now I'm still hoping for YK-Scheduler pairing!!
JHJ-YK is great too,but dunno why I'm really hoping for this pairing to be happen. Well,Scheduler already die so I'm just gotta dreaming for it.
JH character start growing with me.but...no.I think YK real character getting interesting rite now.so...yeah,u know what I'm talking about.
So the Scheduler is YK dead brother? Sigh... Miracle,could u change it to YK boyfriend?
If its her bro,then d storyline for her is kanda lame..espescially 4 me coz I was rooting with YK-S pairing.

Thank you for the recap! My theory is something will happen to Yi-kyung that will make people cry and Ji-hyun will be able to collect the tears that way. But, it's just a theory.

Love this drama!!!!!!

"He tells her to stop wasting his precious time with matters concerning Yi-kyung, then. But as he whirls around to leave, he comes face to face with her."

Why is this episode overflowing with awesomeness? Great, great.

GF on Schedular wardrobe: "This kid’s wardrobe alone is a spectacle worthy of its own recaps."

So true! and thank you for saying it...I feel happy everytime he wares colorful shoes--there have been of couple black kicks and I was muttering why repeatedly to myself when it happened.

Thanks for the recap!

Thank you Javabeans and Girlfriday for the awesome recaps!

I wonder if YK could be one of the tears JH will collect when she somehow finds out about JH's one-sided care for her...after finding out that she's been possessed by a ghost who's the spirit of a girl in a coma.

with everything that's happening, it kind of leads me back to what you mentioned in one of the earlier posts, who is kang really in love with? is he only attracted to yi kyung because she now has ji hyun's mannerisms and personality? i'm waiting to see what happens when kang meets the real yi kyung.

Who does HK fall in love with then (JH/YK)? He must have attracted to the girl's physical appearance. HK can't just flattly fall in love with a girl without being attracted physically. This just doesn't make sense.

actually, it's possible at this point. don't you find that han kang is falling in love all over again with jihyun? all the similarities jikyung has with jihyun are stirring his memories of both of them together in school...

it's like he's returning to the roots of his first love and reliving that experience again...

OK Taking bets:

When is the first kiss?
Who is involved?

And

When does Kang-ah meet the real YK and cause major confusion in her life because she won't recognise him?

I think the first kiss will be HK and JH... all that wrist grabbing is going to end in one kiss one of this days (as much as i will cry because of it).

When? I will say episode 11, I dont think it will happen in next week's episode.

I reaaally hope Han Kang meets the real Yi Kyung soon, hopefully during episode 9... that will at least make clear that he is dealing with Ji Hyun and not Song Yi Kyung. Also the preview was too short so I hope that it was short because something shocking will happen and they dont want us to know :P

or he may just think Yi-Kyung's mysterious illness is a multi-personality disorder! There is no way he is going to think this-is-Ji-Hyun-inside-Yi-Kyung's body!

I am actually guessing a Minho-JH/YK kiss first. So far, MH has been more impulsive around her than Kang. He will be so frustrated that she keeps popping up trying to spy, and interpret this as her liking him.

And, MH's total lack of conscience allows him to be a jerk, where Kang will actually consider somone's feelings.

Of course, Kang will witness the kiss, sending him off into more jealous raging!

Yeah I'm with Jomo with this one, as much it makes me as jealous as Kang is prob gonna be bec I'm so on Kang's side!

That jerk Minho would probably try and steal a kiss and Kang would give Minho a gd punch.

ooooh. Boys fighting over Ji Hyun. Hot!

I dunno how many times i've watched the Kang moments in the last two eps, when he runs after Ji Hyun, when he so cutely try to hide his little smile at Ji Hyun's visit, when he stormed into Minho's house to rescue her, and the last scene. Kang ah SARANGHE!!!! *swoons*

Me too, replayed those scenes over and over and over again!!!

And I would love for KANG to hit MH. Wonder what KANG will do to MH and IJ when he finds out how the 2 have betrayed JH.

Aww c'mon guys... I think Nam gyu Ri's acting has gotten progressively better. I find that I didnt want to scratch my eyes out in episode 7 when she was crying for Yi Kyung when she was about to commit suicide.

Lets give her some slack...

This past episodes are killing me... my fantasy about having the Scheduler and Ji Hyun reap sols together in the after life and make ghost babies is being crushed with all these HK/JH moments... why????????????

Kang-ah I love you but I have an undying crush on our sexy looking scheduler. What to do??

i think it's quite obvious at this point that the Scheduler is Song Yi Soo, no surprises about that. the fact that Yi Kyung has been coping herself up for 5 years and that S died 5 years ago is no coincidence, i think the drama already makes that clear enough...

as for the 3 drops of tears, here's my guess:

1) Kang
He is obviously someone who loves Ji Hyun wholeheartedly albeit secretly all this while, so no big surprises here

2 In Jung
She's not as evil as Min Ho - she even tried to persuade him to pull out and elope together. Plus, Min Ho has been pretty cold towards her lately and she even caught him lying to her a few times - highly likely that her feelings will turn against him later and repent for all her wrongdoings towards JiHyun

3) Seo Wu
I'm guessing Seo Wu even though she's not one of the main characters, but her character does have a few areas for development.

Jo Hyun Jae is such delicious eye candy. I think I shall watch Untold Scandal once again. The scene when Lee Mi Sook sits in his lap to hide him in the palanquin is just precious.

'Untold Scandal' is a movie starring Bae Yong Joon, Jeon Do-Yeon and Lee Mi Sook.

It's a Joseon Era remake of 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' [Dangerous Liaisons]. Jo Hyun Jae plays the character that Keanu Reves played in the 1988 film starring John Malkovich, Glen Close and Michele Pfeiffer.

A damn brilliant take on Laclos's novel, if I may say so! Couldn't believe how well EJY translated the conflict into Joseon terms.

also look out for the scene of half nekkid JHJ with LMS. simply delicious and funny!

I don't think Scheduler is YK's brother. I think it is her lover.

she Forgets everything. NOOOOOO, not Kang-Ah. I hope that doesn't happen, (I don't think it will b/c the drama is only 16 eps and its half over T.T)

I don't think it's purely just a sibling relationship b/t Yi Kyung and the Scheduler. The intensity of the Scheduler's gaze coupled with the tumultuous outpouring of emotion seems to belie such a simple explanation...
