You From Another Star: Episode 14

Well, we survived the week with only one episode, so now we can stop with the withdrawal shakes and rest assured of a second dose tomorrow. Which is a good thing, because I need more happy fuzzy moments to cling to in the midst of our angst parade. I do think there’s hope just around the corner; it’s a nice thing to see everyone firing on all cylinders and closing in on our villain, who may be good at wreaking havoc but is certainly no genius at it. Thank goodness for small favors?

RECAP: FOURTEENTH RECORD

Shooting begins with Song-yi’s stunt, and she straps in to the harness and takes a swan dive off the ledge. It doesn’t take much for the sabotaged pulley to lose a screw, and the wire snaps out of place, sending Song-yi slamming into the wall first, then into a freefall.

Next thing we know, Song-yi is rushed to the emergency room. In a crowded newsroom, a reporter receives a call and bolts upright: “She’s dead?” Wait, they can’t kill her off!

The reporter gets typing, and the headline clarifies: Her life is in critical condition. Phew. I mean, not phew, but better alive than ghost.

Jae-kyung reads the news with a satisfied smirk on his face, just as Min-joon storms into his office (having left the prosecutor’s interrogation). You can feel the force of his rage in the gust of wind that blows in with him; glass shatters as he passes it on his way to facing Jae-kyung. Damn, that’s hot.

Jae-kyung casually reaches to press a button under his desk, but Min-joon sees the motion and sends the desk flying across the room. Dayum. Then he zooms forward to grab Jae-kyung’s throat, lifting him off the ground with one hand. “What do you think I’ll do to you?” Min-joon asks menacingly.

Jae-kyung holds onto his composure and laughs in his face, but a split-second later he’s stunned to find himself on the building’s roof. Min-joon dangles him over the ledge and says, “I’m going to kill you, in exactly the way you did to Chun Song-yi.”

Min-joon lets go, and Jae-kyung just dangles there in mid-air, held up by the force of Min-joon’s mind. Min-joon bellows, “DIE!”

Then we jump back in time to one week before the accident.

While walking on campus, Lawyer Jang gets knocked down by a passerby, who plants a bug on his briefcase before returning it. So when Lawyer Jang meets Min-joon and asks whether he has Men in Black superpowers like erasing people’s memories, that conversation gets transmitted to a very interested Jae-kyung. He takes particular note of that bit of information that Min-joon’s superpowers are on the fritz and now unreliable. Uh-oh…

He’s also tuned into the conversation in which Min-joon confesses to having no recourse but to disappear, and Lawyer Jang warns him that he can’t use his powers to kill anybody. We don’t hear why, but it’s clear there would be consequences that go beyond morality—some kind of negative side effect. Jae-kyung smiles to finally know what Min-joon’s deal is.

Then he calls Min-joon for a meeting, and we see the rest of the conversation we’d only seen a snippet of previously. Jae-kyung accepts Min-joon’s offer to take the fall in exchange for quitting his villainy, saying reasonably that the deal makes sense—he has a lot to lose, too, so he’d rather quit since it’s clear he can’t kill Min-joon anyway. Min-joon warns that breaking the promise means Jae-kyung’s death.

Hwi-kyung overhears his parents talking, curiosity piqued when Mom wonders about Jae-kyung’s ex-wife. Now that Hwi-kyung has mentioned her, Mom has grown curious as well, particularly since she recalls the ex once mentioning that she was afraid of Jae-kyung. What’s more, she admits to finding Jae-kyung difficult to understand, perhaps seeing why somebody might fear him.

Mom adds that she can’t shake the memory of “that incident” from the boys’ childhood, and at that Dad cuts her off sternly and orders her never to speak of that again. Ah, must be a reference to the mysterious eldest brother.

Hwi-kyung knocks on their door and enters at this point, not betraying that he has overheard the conversation as he mentions making a visit to his eldest brother’s grave next week. Dad avoids his gaze, while Mom offers to accompany him. Hm, so not only are we going with brother-killer (which was always the obvious possibility), we see that his parents are aware of the shady circumstances. It’s just that one parent is afraid of the truth, and the other in denial.

Three days before the accident. Hwi-kyung visits the mental hospital and asks for the ex-wife, Yang Min-joo. He notes that the nurse insists there’s no patient by that name without even checking, not fooled by her ready answer. Yay, Hwi-kyung! I’m glad you’re not stupid after all, just endearingly simple. Maybe hyung used up the evil quota in your family.

Two days before the accident. Se-mi and her mother meet with CEO Ahn, taking a moment to brag of Se-mi’s generosity in recommending Song-yi for the supporting role. CEO Ahn comments that Song-yi used to make his life difficult by pitching fits to get Se-mi cast alongside her, and from the looks on their faces this is something they’d never known.

With Song-yi’s starpower on the wane, Se-mi’s mother steps up to the diva plate and makes multiple demands: more staff and more showy support, “to emphasize the difference between Se-mi and Song-yi.”

The investigators find a link between Jae-kyung and Yura by digging up cell phone records, which place them both at the chaebol family’s villa over the same span of days. Jae-kyung is smart enough to have planted a mole in the police station, so he hears in time to dispatch a clean-up crew to the villa, who leave a few incriminating objects lying around—Min-joon’s. Ack!

The day before the accident. Seok and Detective Park arrive at the villa and hears the caretaker’s prepared explanation about how Jae-kyung never uses this villa for himself—he just lets personal guests stay here. The man confirms that Yura stayed here last summer as a company guest, and that she was with a man. The man takes a quick glance at Min-joon’s photo and confirms that was the guy.

The neatly laid-out story comes across as suspicious, though—even to the detective who’s usually eager to grab the simple explanation. The story is too pat, and he can’t help thinking that Min-joon isn’t the culprit.

Even so, Min-joon has called to inform Seok that tomorrow, he will be surrendering himself. They can’t quite make sense of his actions.

Min-joon interviews that throughout his many years on Earth, he’d never once considered time precious, since to him it was infinite. But now he understands: “If I could have just one more day together, I could give up everything I have and not care.” He slips inside Song-yi’s apartment and watches her sleeping, thinking, “But I know now that even if I were to give up everything, I could not have that.”

Song-yi steps outside onto her balcony, which now looks across at Se-mi’s new advertisement. Song-yi looks up at the stars and wonders if Min-joon really did come from out there somewhere. Min-joon hears her through the wall as she sighs, “You should have just said you didn’t like me. Why say you came from the stars? From now on, every time I look at the night sky, I’ll have to think of you.”

Min-joon continues explaining in his interview, “And now I also know that if you come to love someone, fear comes too—that you might not be able to protect the one you must protect. Right now, I am afraid.”

Accident day. Also surrender day for Min-joon.

Song-yi readies herself in the morning, only to get a call from the director to come in bare-faced for her action scene. She complies, wiping her face and leaving the house dressed plainly, shrugging aside her mother’s complaints. They run into Min-joon at the elevators, the air chilly between them, and she takes the first car down. He waits for the next.

Song-yi’s mother doesn’t understand Min-joon’s coldness and starts to get huffy. Song-yi tells her mother not to say a thing, stunning her speechless by flatly admitting to liking Min-joon, confessing, and being rejected. Mom is shocked to see Song-yi crying over a man, and Min-joon’s hearing picks up her voice as she tells Mom she just barely managed to keep herself from begging Min-joon.

“You’re crazy,” Mom marvels. Song-yi just agrees, “Yes, I am.”

So now Min-joon blows past Lawyer Jang’s protestations on his way to giving himself up. Lawyer Jang begs a promise of him first, the same thing he’d asked earlier—”Just don’t do that thing. I can’t bear to see that happen because of that waste of a human.” Min-joon promises, and Lawyer Jang holds him to it.

And so Min-joon begins his confession, starting by confirming that he was the man filmed on the cruise ship.

At the film set, Bum casts longing looks over at Song-yi while attending to Se-mi, and tries to slip away to sneak Song-yi some hot packs. Aw, he’s sweet. But Se-mi notices and deliberately holds him back to run lines, and looks smug to see how Song-yi no longer merits star treatment from the crew, who largely ignore her.

Just then, a fancy car pulls into the warehouse with a huge trailer, and out steps Hwi-kyung to supply that star treatment all on his own. That. Is. Awesome. He has ordered a gourmet spread for the whole crew in Song-yi’s name, and it’s icing on the cake to see Se-mi’s mother seethe as the chaebol tends to Song-yi’s needs. (I take less joy in Se-mi’s reaction given that I believe her hurt is genuine, but her mother? Suck on that, lady.)

Hwi-kyung doesn’t even notice until now that Se-mi’s in this movie too, though he doesn’t do anything when Se-mi storms out, figuring that being distant will help Se-mi get over him quicker. Song-yi realizes apologetically that she should have done the same for him, and he half-jokes that it’s too late for that.

Looking around, Hwi-kyung notices a familiar face in the crew—Killer Secretary—but the glimpse is fleeting and he doesn’t quite place him. He’s nervous for Song-yi’s stunt, and although she admits she’s a bit afraid, she doesn’t let it get the better of her and proceeds with the stunt. The wire holds safely enough when it’s tested, and then she takes her place to resume the scene that started us off.

Everyone watches in anticipation as Song-yi leaps, at the same time that Hwi-kyung catches sight of Killer Secretary again. This time he realizes why the face is familiar, just as the wire snaps, ramming Song-yi into the wall. The pulley breaks off, and Song-yi starts to freefall. Hwi-kyung darts forward and grabs Song-yi as she drops, absorbing some of the impact and rolling with her along the mat. By the time they stop rolling, both are knocked out cold.

It’s chaos on the set as they’re transported to the hospital, and Hwi-kyung undergoes surgery first. Song-yi, however, is in a more precarious situation because she requires a blood transfusion, but has a rare blood type that isn’t readily available. The doctor advises family members to be tested immediately. Song-yi’s mother is distraught over the possibility of not being a blood match, but thankfully her father hears about the accident and races to the hospital.

The public reaction to the news is, sadly, ugly. Bok-ja just barely holds onto her temper at the comments: “Thank you for snapping, wire” and “You get what you deserve.” Yeesh.

In the interrogation room, Seok and Detective Park are strangely dissatisfied with Min-joon’s thorough confession. It just fits too easily, and his lawyer is making no effort to protect the client. When they pause for a break, Seok asks Min-joon if there’s anybody he’s trying to protect, trying to understand why he’s lying.

Just then, the detective bursts in with news of Song-yi’s accident. Min-joon races out so quickly that the people outside don’t even see him and insist that nobody left the room. The detective can’t let go of this discrepancy and checks the security footage, which confirms that something shifty is going on (“Is he Harry Potter?!”). He demands an explanation of Lawyer Jang, unwilling to accept his “You must’ve seen wrong” answer.

Song-yi’s father tests as a blood match, which means Song-yi will be fine, and now Min-joon’s reaction shifts from worry to rage as he watches Song-yi from afar. Finally he can’t hold back and storms into Jae-kyung’s office to wreak some havoc, as we saw at the top of the episode.

We resume the rooftop scene as Jae-kyung dangles in the air, finally looking scared. Min-joon yells at him to die, and Jae-kyung flinches for a moment before realizing he’s still hovering there, alive. Regaining his confidence, he tells Min-joon that he can’t kill him: “I know that if I die, so will you.” Ahhh, so is that the big cosmic catch? Min-joon can’t kill without dying?

Jae-kyung cackles in his face and says he knows everything about Min-joon, including all his secrets and weaknesses, saying that surely Min-joon wouldn’t give up his own life just to kill him. Yet Min-joon bites out, “If I could stop you, I don’t care if I die.”

Jae-kyung’s eyes widen when he starts falling, realizing Min-joon may not be bluffing after all. So when Min-joon pauses the freefall, Jae-kyung blurts, “Chun Song-yi will die! If I die, she’ll die too.” He’d made sure to have arrangements in place, knowing Min-joon would be a slippery foe: “Even if you kill me, you can’t stop me.”

Min-joon clenches his jaw, perhaps sizing up this answer… and lets Jae-kyung fall.

Jae-kyung drops hundreds of feet, limbs flailing as the ground quickly approaches his face, and nearly pees himself (…I’m assuming) as his freefall yanks to a stop just several feet above cold, hard sidewalk. Then Min-joon lets him fall the rest of the way, and looms over him as Jae-kyung gasps for breath.

“Pray that Song-yi is safe,” Min-joon warns. “If anything happens to that woman, I will come back to kill you. You said you have a lot of things to lose. I’ll make sure you know the taste of losing them one by one. In the end you will lose everything, and I will show you what utter destruction is.”

“How dare you—” Jae-kyung starts to say.

“How dare you!” Min-joon cuts him off. “I’ll show you who you dared mess with.”

Song-yi makes it through her surgery safely, and is given a good prognosis for recovery. Her parents are relieved, and in the wake of their near-miss, Mom’s anger toward Dad has melted and she invites him to stay with Song-yi longer.

Sad-sack Dad is willing to leave right away, thinking Song-yi wouldn’t want to see him. Mom bursts out that this is his problem, taking her words at face value and not realizing that Song-yi has spent years wanting to see him.

So Dad stays at Song-yi’s side, clasping her hand and crying. From within her unconscious state, Song-yi thinks, “Dad. Whenever I was afraid when I was younger, I called out for you.” We see the teenage Song-yi on set, trembling nervously and murmuring “Dad” to herself just before beginning her scene.

“But now, I call a different name,” she says. As adult Song-yi prepares for her wire stunt, she says to herself, “Do Min-joon.”

Song-yi conjures her own dream sequence of a happy future with Min-joon, walking alongside him and having him to hold at night. “For the first time, I’ve found someone to love more than you. I’ve found someone I want to be with from morning to night, someone to do everything with.”

That night as Song-yi sleeps in her hospital bed and her father dozes in an armchair, Min-joon arrives. Her dream-thoughts continue: “Even though he tries to shove me away, I can’t walk away. Even though I try to hate him, I can’t. I keep… dreaming a sad dream that he loves me.”

And Min-joon leans down to kiss her forehead sweetly.

 
EPILOGUE

Today’s epilogue continues right from the ending scene, as Min-joon straightens after the kiss and starts to walk away. In her sleep, Song-yi’s hand grabs his, holding him there by her side. Her eyes open, tears falling down her face, as she adds, “I keep dreaming that sad dream.”

 
COMMENTS

There’s something about this separation that really tugs at my heartstrings in all the right ways, despite being set up amidst circumstances that are pretty familiar to those of us who’ve seen a drama or twenty before. It’s one of this drama’s strengths as a whole, that while it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it adapts story tropes skillfully and crafts its scenarios with enough compelling internal logic that regardless of whether I’ve felt these narrative beats before (…and I have), I’m still buying what this drama’s selling.

For instance, I love how they’re dealing with the romantic angst, particularly on Song-yi’s end. Threatening a main character into a bout of noble idiocy is nothing new, but within the logic of this world, I’m totally with them in feeling pained over the separation. Min-joon has his hands tied in so many ways, not just by the cartoonish villain but also fate/time/the cosmos at large, so that even were Jae-kyung to magically poof away into the ether (which would be nice, wouldn’t it?), his dilemma would remain. He loves her too much to consign her to a lifetime of missing him, but he also loves her too much to actually stay away. Aggggggh. It hurts so good. Maybe there’s something wrong with me to love that twist of angst, but inasmuch as it’s super-effective in making me care, I love it. Kill me now why don’t you.

Given that Min-joon is committed to taking himself out of the picture, I’m totally there with sympathy pangs for Song-yi, who is handling the rejection with dignity without being too proud, and also showing her heart without being too mopily pathetic, either. It’s a tough balance to strike, because if you go too far one way or another you’re making your misery worse by either wallowing or denying it. (How many times have we yelled at characters to either get a spine or let go already?) Yet Song-yi walks that fine line, dealing with her feelings in a way that’s both classy and really heart-tugging.

The resolution of Song-yi’s blood transfusion issue was almost comically swift, and as a result it hardly even registers as a blip on the emotional radar. So I appreciate it more for its place in the narrative than for the moment itself, because it allowed Song-yi to make peace with her absentee father and move on to the pain of absentee lover. Her dream was a bittersweet callback to Min-joon’s own dream, both of them wishing for nothing more than the most mundane of futures together. Most of all I love that in dreams is truth, and while the waking Song-yi may have to force herself to stay away from Min-joon, the unconscious Song-yi knows that he loves her no matter what he says. It’s a comforting thought that she can feel the strength of his love even when he’s acting contrary to his feelings. Now all we’ve gotta do is make dreams reality. Anybody got a Matrix they’re not doing anything with?

Yeah this show, like alot of other rom-coms, shine the most with the spotlight on the OTP. not enough of them makes for an unsatisfying watch. But i'll just take it as a satisfying OTP-filled ep.15 tomorrow once all this drama subsides.

You too?? I am not thrilled as well. I love our OTP to pieces! But please stop this longing for you madness. Let them be To-gether!! Please!! I can't take another 'thinking of you' montage.

I'm praying the the writer does not pull a MHIYD fake out! Build us up with mere fantasies of what could've been for our leads, then leave us hanging with Min Joon actually leaving. Even worse, not seeing both of them spend any REAL time together loving each other.

And the direction of Min J

And the direction of Min Joon not being able to kill the villain because he would also die?? I'm not feeling that at all! Min Joon is not from this world so what is his connection to the human race that he should die if he kills one. So if in self defense he will die as well?? I don't like this plot. It's weak and I expected so much more from the writer this far in the game. Also, Min Joon is really sleep walking his way around Jae Kyung, in that the villain is always one step ahead. Why??? The guy's psychotic! How it Min Joon is soo oblivious?? I'm not understanding this at all. I'm very annoyed.

There better be lots of loving in the next episode, or else I'm sitting out a few episodes until this drama GETS REAL! Hmph

While I do completely agree, I do actually appreciate at least an episode or so of separation because it makes the scenes when they finally get together that much more adorable. They did a good job of using the separation period as a time to forward all the story lines that had kind of taken a back burner.

Interesting how people differ. I found this episode a roller coaster. Exciting, fast-paced, and entirely satisfying. I wanted to watch it again as soon as it finished. The scene of Cheon Song Yi crying in the elevator was excellent in my mind.

i think this episode is the best so far. like... they actually have a little scene/take/location/or what but can cover up 1 straight hour into an emotional episode.
i cried while watching this episode. songyi's scene with her mom in the elevator was really heartbreaking.
and the way hwikyeong ran to catch songyi is REALLY SOMETHING.
and semi only cares about hwikyeong is ALSO REALLY SOMETHING.

I felt like they slowed down quite a bit in this episode but I didn’t really mind. I kind of wish Hui Kyeong didn’t catch Song Yi. Now I feel even worse for him. Also, did anyone feel like the effects of the two falls seem a little exaggerated? I feel like Song Yi would be better off if Hui Kyeong hadn’t caught her and that Hui Kyeong shouldn’t have had to go to the ER, but I’m not a doctor so I wouldn’t know.
When the doctor said Song Yi had to get a blood transfusion I immediately though she was going to get blood from Min Joon, turn into an alien, then start making Mini Joon babies right away, muahaha.

Anyway, delusional thoughts aside, I really appreciate that at least the prosecutor and the police officer are smart though. I love that they trust their instincts and know that Min Joon is innocent. I really hope Min Joon gets it together already and throws Crazy Hyung in jail. I mean he used to be a lawyer and has had more than 400 years of experience on Earth. How hard can it be to just steal the USB back or get some evidence when you can freaking teleport, stop time, move stuff with your mind, and seduce female secretaries??? Just go all City Hunter on that crazy [email protected]$#@%#.!

He should have dropped Psycho Hyung from a greater height too, maybe cracked a couple of his ribs or something.

Okay I need to calm myself down. If anyone is bored or going crazy waiting for the next episode you can drop by this page that I made for fun while I was going insane last week because of the postponed episode: http://www.facebook.com/dramameme

Hey Bloops,

Phew *wipes eyebrows,* you had me scared for a minute. I try to watch the episodes carefully, and though I don't remember every single scene of this drama, I was getting concerned that I had missed such a scene.
Besides, our "always" stoic MJ seducing secretaries? That, I would have to see :-)

Bloops, I almost had two heart attacks today (because of this ep.). Please don't play with my heart. I still want to see tomorrow, I haven't seen ep. 15 yet :-) (and the rest of the series :-) )

"Also, did anyone feel like the effects of the two falls seem a little exaggerated? I feel like Song Yi would be better off if Hui Kyeong hadn’t caught her and that Hui Kyeong shouldn’t have had to go to the ER.."

I agree with you. If a person falls from that kind of height it is usually the person at the bottom that is ( in most cases) in danger of being critically hurt. Do you know what dead weight feels like falling from the sky on top of you?? Been there. What Hui Kyung did would have injured him badly. But no.. Our Song Yi is the one who needs the blood transfusion. I laughed at that one.

Please writer-nim, stop with all the Lois Lane is in danger crap already. Allow Superman to get some loving. Okay? Even superheroes need a break. ;)

Oh that's right! It seemed like they were about to perform some major brain surgery on him with that Scalpel of Death. The fall didn't seem that bad to me but I guess it could happen.

SY had internal injuries related to her spleen, which also included internal bleeding. They weren't able to take her into surgery until they had matching blood for the transfusion. She did have surgery also. These could have been caused by the belt the wires were attached to, the slam into the wall, and the impact of the fall.

Also the doctor said she had pulmonary edema...a blood clot in her lung...that I presume they were able to resolve. Those are really dangerous.

I don't recall specifically hearing the extent if HK head injuries, but he's going to br regrowing his hair after whatever brain surgery he was in for.

Exactly my thoughts! The noble idiocy these past few episodes was SO...idiotic!! Clearly DMJ must recognize that evil hyung is psycho and that the only way to stop him is to put him away (since he can't kill him, apparently).

Who in their right might would think, oh, I am dealing with a murderous sociopath, clearly I can take him at his word. Cuz you know, murderous sociopaths are totally known for sticking to their promises.

Can't wait to hop off the noble idiocy train with this drama. It'll be about time!!!

Well done Bloop. Actually there are two scenes that I think they either missed or unfortunately didnt think about. I could say that Song Yi probably would have sustained a shoulder or arm fracture or... rib fracture (to make it more dramatic), but she wont necessarily need blood transfusion. Her pulmonary edema caused by a rib poking through... errr... kinda make me raise my eyebrow. And it seems HK is having a craniotomy. er. Why? There was no massive impact to do such. They landed on a mattress. Worse thing he could get is a brain hemorrage. oh dear.
Second the scene with DMJ and crazy brother .... I know DMJ teleports but i think they forgot to edit ... as DMJ stepped in crazy brother office , I saw the Emergency Area.
Okey. (scratching my head)

Anyway, I thought that this episode is a filler. BUT still a lovely one. Made me anticipate for more.
I guess I will be stalking for raws tonight. Lol.

I agree, it is one of the best ep. I loved it through and through. I was sucked into the ep. for the whole time. At the end, I thought to myself, "it is because of dramas like this, and because of episodes like this, that people marathon dramas." I wanted to see the next ep. right away :-) (I am not big on marathoning dramas, I like the 2 ep/week better, however, I would marathon this one).

yeah! it was a pretty awesome episode.
I'm so excited on the sole fact that MJ FINALLY got his balls back.
he's stopped cowering at the feet of a mere human (okay, evil genius) and fighting for what he wants in his super humanish way.

My questions for this ep.: 1-Did the dad called his (ex) wife, “ajumma?” when he was about to go give blood? 2-I wondered if JJH had a double for that scene, when she hit the wall. That impact against it felt, looked, and sounded hard. 3-At 1st, when Lawyer Jang talked about the promise, I wasn’t sure about what he was referring to: was it the promise not to kill JK?

I really loved this ep. It had me at the edge of my seat, talking to my computer screen, crying, and feeling that my heart had sunk to my stomach (the anxiety was that great in some scenes). So we learn another aspect of MJ’s powers: he can’t kill someone, unless he is ready to die as well.

In a way, I am kind of glad that JK is so prepared and seems to have people and ears in strategic places (such as in the prosecutor’s office), because it makes him an interesting opponent, and it makes his comeuppance that much more delicious to witness (I hope that will be well written as well). We were also given a hint, something happened to JK in the past. Is that why he is now the way he is (easily killing people)? And, SY’s dad is back, and he saves her life, with the blood transfusion. I was so happy to see him.

I loved how BJ and the 2 guys in her store reacted to SY’s news of the accident, upset at the negative comments that were posted about SY. As JB said in a previous recap, BJ is a (reluctant) friend, but a friend nonetheless.

And HK? I have always liked him, however I LOVED him in this ep. I love that he is unabashed (he has a huge picture of her in his bedroom) in his love for SY, and that when he wants to do things for her, he doesn’t go small. The food (in honor of SY), items that would make her comfortable, his noticing (and recognizing) Killer Secretary, his saving SY’s life and breaking her fall (thus reducing the gravity of her injuries). He genuinely loves her and he protects her, the best he knows how (he listened to MJ about his brother). I also now see the golden ratio some of the beanies explained to me in a previous recap, and yes, he has really nice features. I love PHJ, he was also good in MDSY. When HK was being wheeled in the OR, I kept saying to the computer, HK cannot die. He has to help solve the murder, and put his brother in jail. IF HK dies, his brother would have killed him.

I liked SY’s mom a little better in this ep. She seemed genuinely concerned about SY’s well being right after the accident, during the surgery and right after it. It was also good how she let the dad know how much SY had missed since he felt. Awful though, that she took all his pictures away at home. I am hoping that the family will be reunited by the end of the drama, or at least the dad with his children. Also, I love the mom’s boots in this ep.

I guess JK was testing MJ, to check if MJ really could not kill anyone. What he didn’t realize (or didn’t know) was that you do not want to make MJ angry. MJ springing to action is always hot. And him worried, awww. Also, must this drama tease us so much? The tender scenes between MJ and SY so far have only been dream sequences.

Thank you for another recap!

Also JB, I mentioned in last week's recap the technical issues I had had (and other beanies as well) when coming to this site. I hope it didn't come across as criticism, because that was not my intent. I am not very computer (or technology) savvy, so I brought it up mainly because I was wondering if there were maybe something I could do on my end, and was not aware of.
I do copy all my comments before posting them, and I don't mind refreshing the page. I just wanted to check with you if you knew something I didn't know, and that I could do. Thank you!

This episode could have been better in my opinion >< There was quite a few fillers, the beginning of the episode felt like we just rewatched episode 13, but its not surprising as I've heard that things were slightly behind schedule and the cast and staff have been working their asses off (even during the new year holiday) to finish this episode :(

Why is it that all the cute and cuddly parts are always dreams?!?! T^T

Hello yuweei,

You know, when I saw the beginning of the ep., I thought about the King of Dramas, where we learned about the importance and role of flashbacks in dramas, and I smiled. However, I also looked at the time and replayed that scene, and the beginning (that felt like ep.13), was actually just 1min and 50 secs, so not that long, really. Yes, there were some fillers, however I didn't mind them, and the story is going somewhere. We learned some new facts today, and it was refreshing to see angry MJ, as opposed to stoic MJ, which we have seen for a while. I really loved this ep. personally.

About this, "Why is it that all the cute and cuddly parts are always dreams?!?!" Don't you know (by now)? Because the drama loves teasing us :-)

Isn't it great though, when you realize that the many hours you have put into Kdrama watching were actually worth it? You can build on your knowledge gleaned from previous dramas, and get educated about certain things in the process. And that makes it OK (to watch Kdramas).

@ Rushie and NewFan,

Thank you for your responses. The dad called SY's mom "SY's mom (SY umma, sp?)" when he first met her (in the hallway of the hospital, I think). However, when he says goodbye (something along the lines of "I am going to go), in the room where SY is, waiting to be taken to surgery), it didn't sound like he called her "SY's mom" (in Korean), which was why I asked. He said some thing(s), and the next word sounded like "ajumma." That caught my attention, and made me curious.

I've been wondering about this a bit since watching Pretty Man.

Why do divorcees call their ex-es XX-appa/omma? Instead of referring to each other by name? Is it a Korean formality thing?

It's like when Koreans have children, they are known for that. Either Songyi's parents can be referred to as "Songyi appa/abeoji" or "Songyi umma" instead of their given names.

Yes. What maldita said. It's not just among divorcees but you will see married couples as well as their friends calling them by their children's names followed by appa/omma.
I found it odd at first but it's something that's cultural.

@ NewFan,

I am glad you rewatched that part again, and saw (and heard) what I thought I heard. So I did hear right (kind of).

Speaking of SY's parents, I really loved the parents' meeting each other (after a long time, I am assuming), at the hospital. That scene, when the dad got in the hallway, and the mom called him “SY’s appa,” and he called her, “SY’s umma,” and they looked at each other, So. Moving. I lost it then.

This is random, however I do really like how they dress the actors and actresses in this drama (most of the time). I have liked SY's mom style (Na Young-Hee), and I especially liked her pink coat and her brown tall boots in this ep. (when she was leaving SY's room, after she talked to SY's dad). Those brown boots looked like they had holes in them. They were really nice.

I also loved the forehead kiss MJ gave SY, when she was asleep. Sooo tender, and that kiss said so much...

I think SY's dad said to SY's mum: 걱정하지마, goek-jeong ha-ji-ma, which means "do not worry". Hajima sounds like ajumma ;-).

bella57 ,

So your comment (further up) was addressed to me. I hope your enjoyed reading my comment/post. I have a little more to say, and I will add it today or tomorrow, FYI.

I really loved HK in this ep. I have liked him all along (he is so funny at times, and I just LOVE how PHJ is playing him), however, I fell in love with him in this ep. and were DMJ not in the picture, I think SY should return his affections. Too bad he is not in love with SM, since she loves him so much as well. I love how HK is with his love for SY: he is open about it, and he fusses over her, but not in a condescending way, and I don't find him possessive at this point. He just really loves her and cares about her, and he wants what is best for her. With HK, what you see, is what you get , though now, I think he will try to hide from his brother what he is finding out about him (he needs to). HK is (has always been) all about SY, all the time (he went to Rome once, to follow her on a photoshoot, instead of going to school, LOL). It's just that, now his obsession is a little healthier (he is her friend now), at least in the way he treats her.

I really hope that HK will be the one who helps uncover JK's bad deeds (and help MJ in the process), and hopefully send him to jail or something. That would be a nice twist, since HK got injured because of JK. HK could have died, really. HK and JK's dad also needs to know what his son has been up to, since he is in denial about JK's dark side. I think the mom will just have a heart attack, when she finds out about JK. She is already uncomfortable and somewhat afraid of him, and she doesn't even know half of what he has done. It must be her intuition as a mother that makes her uncomfortable around JK.

I am invested in how the murder, and who JK really is gets revealed (one bit at a time), as much as I am invested in the romance in this drama. The execution is important, and the writing so far has been good. I do hope it will stay that way till the end (I sound like a broken record now, I have said that so many times here :-) ).

I am glad you enjoy my long posts :-) Thank you for letting me know, and Happy Reading :-)

What a predicament for Do Min–Joon:

1) No mixing of blood.
2) No swapping saliva. {Susceptible to others tampering with your food.}
3) After 400 years on Earth, you must leave soon and return to your own planet.
4) His ability to control and use his alien powers is shifting and becoming a concern.
5) If you kill someone, you will die as well.

The dramatic revelation in Episode 14, leaves Do Min-Joon in a quandary. It’s a mare's nest of intrigue and troubles with Lee Jae Kyung. Writer Park Ji-Eun sure has driven Do Min–Joon into a corner with few choices at his disposal to escape this plight.

Honorable Mention:
Lee Hwi Kyung (Park Hae Jin) was awesome. I really enjoy his character and place in the storyline.

Honestly, all these rules are annoying me. I feel like the writer is pulling them out of his sleeve. We ask ourselves "Why can't he just kill him?" Next we find out that he has some strange alien condition that makes him die if he kills another. Now I ask, why can't he just take her a move somewhere far, far away. Like in another continent. Is there some rule against travel too?

Actually it does make sense though for someone to have that immense power and not limited. I mean they can just go and make themselves god and the whole entire citizen of earth as their slave. I was wondering whether Min Joon being told by his elder from his planet, if it is, then maybe it is just a way for the elders to prevent catastrophe when they send their younglings to earth for field trip. LOL jedi moment there.
Not fully satisfied with this episode but man I love looking at "killer for convenient" hyung to be scare shitless that he actually pull out "even if I die Song yi will die too" card. How desperate is he? HAAA!!! DIE!!!! Or wet your pants is close enough. But in reality if someone get drop that far, wouldn't his heart give up from shock?

"Actually it does make sense though for someone to have that immense power and not limited."

I don't necessarily agree with this because the writer is half a$$ing it at this point with that reasoning. I agree with the other commenter when they said that the writer had put so many limitations on Min Joon now, that's he's literally backed into a corner. Most of us love MJ because of his powers; he's different. He's superhuman (or not so much). Now it's like he humanizing him or something. Why?

My guess is they writer wants this fight between JK and MJ to be on the level. A fair fight?

It makes sense for DMJ to have limitations. His growing weakness makes sense. His saliva allergy makes sense. These are all feasible weaknesses due to his biology not playing well with Earth's environment.

But it makes NO SENSE for him to die when he kills someone with his powers. He's an alien. Not of this world. So why should his living or dying be connected to whether someone in this world lives or dies? It's completely arbitrary and feels like the writer was grasping for straws here. Hated that twist.

The writer could have handwaved this latest limitation on MJ's power by throwing in some dialogue about it being a belief of his people or something. With their gifts belief makes reality blah blah.

And we could buy it because we still know absolutely nothing about his people!

I don't know. think about the world we would live in if this was the case; not necessarily an eye-for-an-eye, but if I KILL you I also die; might be a deterrent to violence.
And maybe it is a little bit of social commentary; life would be pretty simple and probably a lot more peaceful if that was the case right?
I agree without limits we have people who would abuse their power and as we know "Abuse of power comes as no surprise"

I was actually hoping for DMJ to just dangle the evil bro on the air and left him there. He wouldn't be the killer, and when the power went into glitches, oopss…guess what? the evil bro would come falling down, and the killer would be: gravity. heh…heh… (I never knew I could be this violent)

The thing about superheros (i'll just compare min joon to superman) is that with their godly superpowers comes weaknesses. That's the case with every superhero today (batman, spider-man, iron-man, thor, etc.) who have to overcome rather large hurdles (villains, limitations, weaknesses). I think that's where it humanizes these heroes so the audience can connect to them. Some have voiced their preference for batman over superman because he's way more flawed than the all too perfect superman whose only weakness is kryptonite (debatable).
IMO, I also prefer that our hero doesn't have so many of these "rules" against him but it definitely gives the writer more material to work with -- be it twists, or good conflicts.

Agree with hwi kyung. I officially love him in this episode. He doesn't force his feelings on song-yi in recent episodes anymore, but rather protects her as a friend, in the most awesome ways.

His is a less intriguing one and doesn't really have one in the traditional sense of most comic book heroes where it's directly life-threatening, but the first thing to pop in my head is his love for mary-jane/his family & his desire to please everybody which often times puts him in a predicament.

I think Peter Parker just has terrible luck with no money and everyone treats him like a low life. So when he becomes spider-man, he actually is worth something. Except when the police and media think he is the culprit. So not so much of a weakness as just a crappy life despite being a super hero.

At first I thought he wasn't much of an impact b/w song yi and min joon. But in this ep, i can see how much he really liked song yi and now i feel really sad and bad for him.

I loved Hwi Kyung from the get-go for his sincere and earnest ways, but I love him even more in this episode. He totally brought tears to my eyes when he brought the 'star' chair for Song-yi and food for the crew. Protect her he did and she finally noticed his sincerity. That was a lovely beat.

In contrast to how Se-mi was in her supporting role days, Song-yi's overall attitude is just awesome. A star is a star no matter what role she plays or how many times/ways others try to trample on her.

I mean, there's gotta be a reason why hwikyung is so consistently awesome while saemi continues her descent from decency.. I feel that they are keeping HK decent still so that he remains a viable option for songyi when our resident alien ships off to his land in the end ( which is seeming more & more possible, given that this is not like MGIAG where becoming human was a possibility discussed from the begiining, offering hope )

And saemi is not shown remorseful or turning over a new leaf, or even a friend who just had a lot of resentment built over the years that make her unable to care for a friend who she actuaaly has a lot of affection for.. Nope, she has become a straight-on bitch so that any possibility of her & HK is also seeming nil..

Also, HK loves SY a lot, so he would support & love her inspite of her pining for a lost lover..

On the contrary, our Song-yi was not her crazy self this episode. She was touchingly fragile, desperately but quietly in love, and hanging on to bits and pieces of her "unrequited love" proudly.

The crying scene in the elevator with Mom deserves praise for solid acting, proof that she was developing as a mature, unselfish character away from that bratty bitch we were once introduced to.

And even though scenes with Mom was funny ("you only have three lines to memorize!"), Song Yi was at her best, a lonely character, a fallen star, a proud beauty, who was willing to let go and let live with whatever is handed to her that moment... be it love, family or career.

I love her, regardless of who she will end up with.

All that time on Earth and he's trusting the word of a psycho serial killer, really!?!

I think it would difficult tho. Even after the detective found out about JK & Yura, they still unable to find evidences to back it up. JK has men everywhere and smart to use every info he got. and MJ doesn't have any evidence with him to back his word against JK. Unless, of course he did manage to copy that videos despite it was DRM protected.

I don't understand how the police haven't found a link between YR and JK as yet. Phone records perhaps? She never called her boyfriend?

"..I’m totally there with sympathy pangs for Song-yi, who is handling the rejection with dignity without being too proud, and also showing her heart without being too mopily pathetic, either. It’s a tough balance to strike.. Yet Song-yi walks that fine line, dealing with her feelings in a way that’s both classy and really heart-tugging."

You hit the nail on the head, JB. This is exactly why im not tearing my hair out with this OTP's separation -- because somehow, the writer's way of dealing with it is equal parts angsty and heartfelt.
Our heroine continues to move forward in her career but longs and even dreams for do manager. I never feel the need to yell at her to toughen up (she does it all on her own, with elegance and charm) but instead I always want to be a friend that's always there for her, like Bok Ja. How is se-mi considered her best friend for all those years? Puzzling, considering Bok Ja was lowkey always there all along.

I feel like the live shooting has definitely caught up to the show....there is such a difference in quality that its not even funny....doesnt mean the episode was bad or anything but i felt thru out the whole episode like things were being dragged out just a little too long. And the constant flashbacks and flashbacks of scenes we just saw minutes ago made me more than annoyed!

I think that the killer storyline is starting to be drawn out just a little bit...i mean by now Sony Yi should know something is going on and BY GOSH, Min Joon should start spending time with her....isnt it worse if u dont spend time with the one u love rather than moaning and complaining about how short the time u have with her is but yet not do anything! PLUS u could better protect her if she is by your side AND if she is in the loop!

Love that the accident brought Song Yi's dad back in the picture and i cant wait to see how things resolve!!

Gotta say i loved the movie set scenes! the look on SeMi and her mom's face gave me pure pleasure!!!!

First saw it without subs and I felt the anger that Do Min Joon was feeling then. KSH, why so good? DMJ, I wish you would just give in. Just go all out and love her as you do, for God's sake!!! Please dont keep us hanging like this. We need to breathe and sleep normally. Not think about what the [email protected]#'s gonna happen to our OTP! Get them together already. I'm having a heart attack waiting for it to happen. The trend now is to get the OTP together ASAP! Didnt you know that dear writer(s)?

I was incredibly bloodthirsty in this episode. When I found out that he couldn't kill without dying I was practically screaming at my screen "then break his legs"!!! Throughout that whole rooftop scene I was thinking "you don't have to kill him just hurt him real bad." I do have one question though and it's how does he know he can't kill without dying?

Yup, same question on my mind. How could MJ know that he will die if he kills someone else? Obviously he couldn't have prior experience before. Unless this is the rule in hia alien star and he assumed that the same rule applies on earth..

Maybe it's like the Prime Directive on the various Star Treks. No interference with the life forms of the planets you are visiting is allowed, especially if they aren't yet at the interstellar space travel technological level. Min-joon killing Jae-kyung would certainly be interfering in a big way and perhaps the penalty for doing this is death when he gets back to his home planet.

I suspect this might be a fail-safe mechanism programmed into members of the research team by their government. Per this organization:

"Fundação Nacional do Índio . . . (National Indian Foundation) or FUNAI is a Brazilian governmental protection agency for Indian interests and their culture . . . the agency's motto: "Die if necessary, but never kill."

If I couldn't kill Jae-Kyung I'd just make him relive the fall over and over again until his mind is broken and he ends up in the same mental hospital his wife is in. Although that may happen regardless considering that he sees Dead Yura when he's awake and plotting.

I like how this episode backtracked to build up the circumstances and the tension for Song-yi's accident, Min-Joon's confession and the MJ-JK showdown.

Even though I totally saw it coming, JK is such a bastard for reneging on his promise with MJ.

Angry Min-joon is so hot! Office showdown was epic of course. One of my favourite moments of this episode was Min-joon's conversation with JK on the street. Loved how Min-joon cut JK off and shouted "How dare you!" It gave me goosebumps. Kim Soo-hyun does angry smolder so well. <3

The ending was really sweet. Loved the way he kissed her forehead and how she held on to his hand to make him stay. It is so bittersweet the way she says "I keep dreaming a sad dream". Her candour about her love for him and the inability for her to hate him for pushing him away is both heartbreaking and endearing.

I just love this couple. Even in their separation we can see how much their hearts are together. The balcony scene from this episode was so poignant. "Whenever I look at the stars I will think of you". *Swoons* Please get together soon!

God, I can't even be mad at the writers for making me cry like a baby. It was good, though I feel quite saddened by the fact that Min Joon and Song Yi are rarely in the same screen - I am still very comforted by the fact that he is still there watching her and they are in love with each other as much as anyone could possibly muster. Though I've seen this separation angsty a million times over in dramas since I started watching it. This one tugs me all in the right way and I am stuck on it like an addict would to a drug. I feel Song Yi's pain and damn, her dream of simplicity that echoed back to Min Joon just broke my heart a million times over. I wish, I really do -- that this will end happily. Even if Song Yi has to follow Min Joon to another planet.

But for now... My tears... And with 7 episodes left, I still want a happy ending for this couple and it'd be nice if they could have that simplicity they dream of.

this episode might not be my fave episode, perhaps because it was a long waiting thus I expected more from OTP. But anyway it was a solid episode and I have grown fonder towards some characters.
Many things to love from this episode despite the OTP scene lacking

- MJ's anger towards JK was hot!! He acted out of his nature because of SY's accident and that showed how much SY means to him. How I wish SY could see that

- SY characters. Each episode I just happen to love her more and more. She wears her heart of her sleeves yet she maintains enough dignity to carry it. The elevator scene was heart-wrenching and I'm glad the writer let MJ knows exactly how she feels for him.

- HK as second lead has stepped up and shined and I love what he did for SY at the location set, bringing the food truck to treat everyone and giving star treatment for SY. It was a grand gesture and SM's jealousy reveals her inner vicious character

- Smart and attention to details prosecutors! I'm glad they are at MJ's side regardless his confession. They do not take what's on the surface only. They go beyond the obvious which is very cool.

- forehead kissing and SY holding MJ's hand. I wish they will not make her think it was just a dream just like the drunk kissing. After what MJ has done for her, they should let her know MJ's feeling for her. MJ deserves that and so does she.

I can't wait for tonight's episode... I do hope MJ stays by her side after the forehead kiss... My wishful thinking

Lowkey I was hoping that an injured song-yi would maybe bring out a more caring se-mi but unfortunately all i heard was "Hwi-kyung!" with her rushing by his side, without so much as a glance in her "best friend's" direction. Pittty I was hoping for the writer to sort of rebuild their relationship (like the way she's done with bringing out the father from hiding) but i guess now I won't really care if they still end up enemies. That's probably more realistic anyways than sugarcoating the ending with the two as friends.

Ugh, me too. I had so high hopes for Se-mi, but that lone Hwi-kyungah she shouted dashed it all to bits. I hope Song-yi crushes her under her feet on her way back to the top. But knowing Song-yi, she probably won't.

Exactly. We see how Semi and her mum are supposedly acting like Songyi did before everything happened (like SM asking the director to cast SY) but it just shows that SM is being spiteful and trying to brag about her limelight now whereas SY was actually looking out for a friend.

I was kind of surprised at that too. I thought she would have been worried for both HK and SY. Sheesh.

I think her mom was genuinely worried about SY though. She looked really horrified when SY's wires were beginning to give way.

That said. I loved how they were both seething away when HK came to give Song Yi star treatment!

I am with you on that...regardless of how SM felt about SY - they were 'friends' for years and hung out...especially seeing that her new manager explained how many times SY went to back for SM and her career. However, I do like the fact that the writer wrote SM character to be this external sweet, passive, upbeat, just trying to please everyone and allowed time and power to show us her real character...while Ms. Diva is loyal, honest, not perfect, but struggles to face her fears, doubts, and love with grit and determination. But I will admit that I wanted to kiss HK for making her comeback role special. His love for our Ms.Diva was warm, yet heart wrenching. HK loves SY from a place of purity, I don't feel that same warmth regarding SM loves for HK...maybe because she is striking out in jealousy towards SY instead of trying to sort out her emotions and feelings.

Another thing that pissed me off about Se-mi in this episode was when her manager (he is so sweet) wanted to go give Song-yi a heat pack, she stalled him by making him go through lines with her.

Seriously, you begrudge her a frigging heat pack? Ugh.

Actually, Se-mi's mildly scheming self did come out on the first early episodes. When she sat down with Han Yura in the powder room, and she casually mentioned to her that Song Yi sees her as rival and that anything Yura wants or gets, Song Yi will go after it too, like the special reality TV coverage that Song Yi accepted just because she found out that Yura was going for it.

Se-mi dropped that hint so quietly it didn't look as if she had a bad atom in her, but there it was for us to realize that she must be using Song-yi's friendship for other beneficial reasons.

How refreshing to see the role reversals, of Se-mi going into the dark side because of jealousy and anger buildup for taking a backseat with a rival who never considered her as one, only as a friend.

And now you have a changed Song Yi who is accepting of her fate as a fallen star, but with dignity intact.

Again this week in kdramaland I blinked, and it was over. Maybe because it felt like there wasn't enough "new" happening in this episode. I also am not loving the contrived story around Lee Evil (although if it is only to make Lee Adorable shine, well then - okay). Min Joon's angry powers are hot, it's true, but he's hot even without them. And Song yi isn't impressed in the least anyway over his powers which didn't even kick in to save her from the accident, so ~

I do hope the story satisfactorily wraps up their 400 year history. Oh, and I thought they would need MJ's blood for her transfusion, but nah - just the dad's.

Ooooh, death hyung done pissed off the devil now. They wrapped up her father's startling pretty quickly in my opinion, how convenient.
Hwi-kyungah~ Please be Okay. Please. I wanted to applaud when he called nurse dodgy out on quickly dismissing the possibility of his hyung-soo being a patient. I was thinking the same, That's a pretty big hospital, how do you know every single patient without checking a file? When he came into the shoot with that van, I swooned a little. Funny how even though Se-mi has almost everything that was Song-yi's, the one thing she wants, Hwi-kyung's heart, will never be hers.
Do Min-joon is becoming something of a Georgy Pudgy, stealing kisses from Song-yi every so often Lol. I loved the scene of Bok-ja and the trackettes.
This episode felt a bit slow though.

Ok, so there's a couple of things that just make me pull my hair.

1.) You've lived on Earth for 400 years. You don't know that the criminal will never give into his plot?! COME ON.
2.) The "oh-give-me-the-golden-usb-that-cant-be-copied" thing is so ridiculous. ITS CALLED COPY/PASTE.
3.) Why would you have to meet the prosecutor to give him the usb? EMAIL MAN

sigh. Anyway, I still love this drama despite it's momentary lapses in averted back to dramaland ridiculousness. I just wish this episode rolled a bit faster than it did. And this episode showed me just how much Jun Jihyun does for this drama. She makes the episode so much funner and zippier!!
