Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 19

No matter how much Seo-jin has come to accept Robin as his own person, we knew that he would have to heal eventually. As much as we’re rooting for Seo-jin to be strong enough to stand on his own, it’s tough to see how terrified Robin is about vanishing completely. But the truth is that it’s not up to either of them—the more Seo-jin accepts Robin, the faster Robin begins to fade away—and what lies on the other side, nobody knows.

EPISODE 19 RECAP

The group celebrates Hana’s birthday over at Woo-jung’s place, with Robin conspicuously absent. Hana gives the excuse that he went home early because he was tired, but we know that he’s been brooding on his own, over the fact that Hana couldn’t tell him apart from Seo-jin, and that he and Seo-jin are the same person.

He calls Secretary Kwon over for some beers, still going along with the ruse that he’s Seo-jin pretending to be Robin. Secretary Kwon says that it must be because of Seo-jin that Robin isn’t coming out—in the past, Robin was always the one to sacrifice, but now Seo-jin is the one making sacrifices for Hana.

Robin’s eyes widen, as Secretary Kwon continues to marvel at how much Seo-jin has changed, enough that he’s planning to live the rest of his life with Robin when getting rid of him used to be his only goal in life.

Secretary Kwon muses that acknowledging your illness really is the first step towards recovery, and finally notices that Robin is staring at him slack-jawed. Robin makes it known that it’s him and ekes out, “Seo-jin did what?”

Hana calls to check on Robin later that night, and she can tell that he’s still in the same funk that’s kept him away for the last few days. He decides to give her the birthday present that he’s prepared, and reveals a painting of a woman.

It looks exactly like Hana, but he says that he found the painting and it reminded him of her. Did you really not paint it yourself, or do you not remember painting it? He hopes that every time she looks at it, she’ll be reminded that this is how he remembers her. The way he says it makes her nervous, but he offers no other explanation.

As they cuddle on the couch, Hana says that she thought about what Robin’s life is like, and has resolved to be more considerate instead of just being excited on her own. Robin asks if she’s happy right now, and she nods with a smile.

She caresses his face and remembers their first meeting, and they both smile as their thoughts drift back to that day. But as they do, Robin’s memories start short-circuiting, giving him sharp pains in his head. Ack, are all his memories fading?

Hana makes him panic when she chatters happily about wanting to go back to the farm, which Robin naturally doesn’t remember (because that was Seo-jin pretending to be him).

In the batcave, Robin watches a message from Seo-jin earlier that night. Seo-jin explains that he can’t bear to tell Hana that Robin didn’t wake up on her birthday, which is why he’s heading to the radio station.

Seo-jin says in his matter-of-fact way that Robin can just do better if he’s mad about it, and adds, “Hana needs you.” This is all a shock to Robin’s system, especially when he was the one to say with confidence that Seo-jin would never sacrifice a single thing for anyone else.

He takes out a small jewelry box in his pocket with a necklace inside—it must be Seo-jin’s present for Hana. Robin looks back and forth from the necklace to Seo-jin’s face on the screen and says quietly, “You can’t go that far. If you become that nice, then what about me? I’ll have no place left to stand.”

In the morning, Secretary Kwon recaps the evening’s events, but Seo-jin already knows everything that Robin did—he can see the memories clearly, only now he also feels everything that Robin feels, from his sadness to his fear.

Seo-jin describes Robin’s emotions as horror, of feeling like you’re slipping away and disappearing little by little every day. He worries that he should tell Hana to prepare her, but doesn’t know if it’s the right thing to do.

Cousin Seung-yeon nearly has an aneurysm during a board meeting, where they listen to the marketing team pitch a gazillion ideas to integrate Seo-jin’s webtoons into Wonderland. Seung-yeon’s blood pressure rises with every compliment paid to Seo-jin, until he finally blows his lid and screams that Seo-jin wasn’t living a double life as Robin; he has dissociative identity disorder.

The meeting comes to a grinding halt and Chairman Dad glares at him… and then the speaker at the podium asks if Seung-yeon has something to say. He imagined it? Of course he did.

He tells his girlfriend after the meeting that he feels like one of those scientists in disaster movies who knows that the hurricane is coming, but no one believes him. This time even she abandons him, and he just gets wrapped up in his own lone-scientist narrative, where he’s the only one on the planet who knows the truth.

Robin wakes up that evening and his head pounds as another memory fades. He goes to meet Hana at Woo-jung’s place, and finds them laughing over an old photo album. Yet another memory fades of the first time he saw them drinking together, and panic settles in as he looks over at Hana.

He sneaks out before she notices him there and heads to see Dr. Kang. She’s shocked when he asks to begin treatment now, and says that they have some time left and don’t have to rush. But when he asks how long he has, she guesses six months, and he asks what kind of life he’d have in those six months.

He admits that every day the memory loss is becoming more frequent, and he’s afraid that in six months’ time, he won’t even know that he’s lost memories to begin with. Dr. Kang agrees that it’s likely, and Robin realizes that he might not even recognize the people around him any longer.

He swallows back tears as he says that he doesn’t want to live that way, and then asks for the final treatment to make him disappear in a week. He requests that she not say anything to Seo-jin or anyone else, promising to do it himself.

Robin goes straight to Hana and asks if she’ll go on a trip with him, and they leave right away. She asks if he told Seo-jin about the trip, and he says that he doesn’t need to, since he intends on staying awake the entire three days. He doesn’t intend to share her this time.

They arrive at an old hanok village, and Robin takes her to the house where he grew up, at least in his memories. He tells her that he had a loving mom, a brother, and a sister. How sad—is this the life that Seo-jin secretly wishes he had?

Robin shows her an old tree where he used to bury his allowance money, and tells her that when he first spoke with Dr. Kang, she told him that his memories were fabricated and his childhood wasn’t real. He came running to this house and dug everywhere, but there was no money under the tree, and there were no records of his family members ever having existed.

He says, as if accepting it now: “It was all fake.” He turns to Hana and asks how she accepted someone like him, when everything he remembers is fake: “I’m not real, so how did you come to love me for real?”

She takes his hand and answers, “My love is already real, so how could you be fake? My heart is real, so how can that love be fake? As long as I love you, you’re real.” He smiles at her, heart full of gratitude, and she decides that they’ll bury something under the tree today to mark the fact that she’s really here with him.

They skip along to the stationary store and write letters to each other, and bury them under the tree. Hana suggests that they come back in ten years to read them, and Robin gets her to agree to three years, even though he knows he won’t be here next week.

Later, they stop at a mural to take a picture together, and Robin hangs back to read the poem that’s written on the wall. It describes a love that can’t be spoken, and ends with the refrain, “My heart will always be for only one, only one, only one.” And because Hana’s name means “one,” it also reads, Only Hana, only Hana, only Hana.

They get quiet as they gaze at a mural of an elderly couple, and Hana laughs to see Robin scribbling on a wall where countless people have left messages before them, noting that everyone’s messages are all the same—they all just want to leave proof that they were here.

Sure enough, Robin writes: “Hana and Robin were here.” As Hana leads him away, he keeps turning back to stare at his message, looking terrified that it’ll disappear.

After they get a room for the night, Robin heads out to grab some food, and stares at all the passersby on the street for a long while, lost in thought. He tells himself that telling Hana is the right thing to do—it’s why he brought her here, so he has to do it.

He braces himself for the big conversation, only to find Hana already asleep. He gazes at her closely and murmurs aloud, wondering if she’ll be okay without him. She opens her eyes and startles him, and demands to know what he was talking about.

Robin gets adorably flustered and babbles that he meant not being able to be together all day every day, and Hana schools him like a little kid that he’s not allowed to hide or avoid her any longer.

In the morning, Robin eagerly leads her to the car to take her somewhere special, but then they arrive at his imagined family home again. Oh no. Robin starts telling her the story of his childhood—the exact same story, word for word, that he told her yesterday. Oh noooooo.

Hana looks up at him, shock slowly turning to understanding. She doesn’t let on that he brought her here yesterday, but can barely hide the terror that’s creeping in. She excuses herself for a moment and runs outside to call Dr. Kang, and tells her that Robin can’t remember the things he did yesterday.

Dr. Kang’s response is, “Already?” and Hana knows that this is more than just one lost day. Dr. Kang was hoping that Robin had a chance to tell her, but under the circumstances, she fills Hana in on everything.

Hana’s eyes brim with tears as she finally learns the truth, and she takes off at a run as tears spill down her face. She runs straight for the tree where they buried their letters and digs Robin’s letter out to read it, hands trembling.

Robin writes that by the time Hana reads this letter, he’ll be gone. They’ll have said their goodbyes, and she’ll come to this tree anyway, searching for a trace that they were here. He thought that doing interviews and radio shows these past few weeks was for him, but he’s glad that it’s also for her—so that he’s left a trace of himself behind for her.

He says that there’s one memory he doesn’t ever want to lose: Hana at his side when he made his first public appearance, her shaking from nerves but holding his hand to calm his nerves. We see Robin sitting back on the porch and reminiscing about that very moment as Hana reads about it in his letter. He looks happy, and at peace.

Robin writes that he wants to hold on to that memory, and before it disappears, he wants to disappear as Robin, with that memory intact. Hana sobs and clutches the letter close, and then runs back to the house.

She tears inside and tries to catch her breath, still crying, and Robin looks back at her in alarm. Only… it’s not Robin anymore. That is clearly Seo-jin, staring back at her wide-eyed, asking what’s wrong. Ack, is Robin already gone?

Hana pleads through tears, “It isn’t time yet, right? He hasn’t gone already? Not yet, right?” All Seo-jin can do is say unconvincingly that it’s probably not time yet. She shouts at him angrily that he knew—they both did—but kept it from her. How could they?

Seo-jin sighs and admits, “We didn’t know how. Because the only thought we had was, what do we do?” Hana wails, “He said he wanted to live! He said that he didn’t want to disappear!” He gets up to put a hand on her shoulder as she cries, knowing that there’s little he can do to comfort her.

When her tears subside, Seo-jin reads Robin’s letter. Hana asks if outing Robin publicly was what led to this, but Seo-jin assures her that she gave him something no one else could—a chance for Robin to live as himself, even if it was for a short time.

She tells Seo-jin about this being Robin’s childhood home, and they sit quietly, just taking in the empty house and thinking of Robin.

As Seo-jin wanders around on his own, he gets a text from Robin’s phone. It’s a video message, and Robin says that he’d really like to meet Seo-jin, though he knows it’s impossible. He says that just as Seo-jin decided without him to keep Robin around forever, he’s decided to leave without Seo-jin’s input.

He announces that he has a week left, because he wants to disappear while he’s still himself. He then shares all the ways to make Hana happy: Make her laugh, even if his jokes suck; praise her often for carrying on her father’s work to make others happy; look into her eyes when they speak; hold her hand as they walk; open the car door for her.

Robin knows it’ll be hard for Seo-jin to do all those things, but he says that it’s important to make her feel like he’s thinking of her all the time, even with all the little things. And then Robin gets teary-eyed as he says, “And comfort her. In a week… if she’s having a hard time. I know your feelings are sincere. I must be disappearing because you’ve become as sincere a person as I am.”

He fights his tears to say that Seo-jin has to get Hana to fall in love with him, so that Robin doesn’t regret leaving. Seo-jin records a short reply and says okay, and adds, “But for the remaining time, you give her lots of love.”

Hana heads back to the wall where Robin left another trace that he was here, and cries all over again. She’s startled when Robin calls her, and runs to the bridge where he’s watching fireworks.

She nearly tackles him in a back-hug and sobs that she isn’t ready, that a week is too soon. He turns around and cups her face in his hands, and tells her that there’s no such thing as being ready for something like this.

She still argues that a week is too soon, but he explains carefully that if he stays any longer, he’ll slowly disappear. He tells her that if he loses his arm or his leg, he’s still Robin, but if he loses his memories…

His throat catches as he says, “I can’t be asking you, ‘Who are you?’ as I leave.” He pleads with her to let him leave with the memory of them intact, from that one perfect day. But as soon as he says it, he gets another searing headache, and that very memory that he so desperately wants to keep, starts to fade away.

He cries, “No, no!” but it won’t stop, and just like that, it’s gone. Robin clutches his head and gasps in horror, “It’s gone… That day… is gone.” He breaks down completely, gut-wrenching sobs spilling out as he pounds his head over and over.

Eun-chang and Woo-jung are centimeters away from their first kiss, but hastily break apart when Hana walks in. She’s dazed and numb, but sits Woo-jung down to tell her about Robin.

Woo-jung asks why Hana didn’t insist that Robin stay, but Hana has seen the worst of it now, and tells her that they should send him off while he’s still Robin, while he still has the chance to smile and tell them that it’s okay.

Hana makes a decision and enlists the help of all their friends, and she gets all dressed up and brings Robin back to the place where they walked the red carpet together. Aw, is she recreating the moment for him? That’s so sweet.

They hold hands in the elevator like they did the first time, and there’s a red carpet all lined up, just without the photographers and fans this time. Secretary Kwon comes out to greet them and pins a flower to Robin’s lapel before leading them inside. Robin’s jaw drops when they get inside to find the hall decorated for a wedding (A WEDDING?!), with their friends waiting for them. Seriously, a wedding?

Hana smiles at him and says that their best memory isn’t lost yet—she’s going to create it for him now. She turns it into a question and asks if he’ll let her create the new memory with him now, and asks, “Will you marry me?”

She stretches out her hand, and Robin takes it and they walk down the aisle. Closing caption: Nobody knows what’s at that end, except that you are by my side.

 
COMMENTS

Um, this is a terrible idea, yes? Am I too grumpy to see the romance or something? Because I was totally with them up until the wedding, when it was a very straightforward disappearing-is-death metaphor, and Robin was struggling to hold on and take control of his life in what little time he had left. His storyline is no different from any other terminal illness, though maybe it’s more like dementia crossed with terminal illness, where the terror is in losing yourself before you die, and not being able to recognize the person you love. Robin’s fear felt real in the moment when he lost his most treasured memory with Hana, not because it was such a great memory, but because it represented his last shred of self-identity. To feel the loss as it happens but have no control over your own mind would be absolutely terrifying.

There’s always been a very strong thematic thread in this drama about the question of identity, and how much a sense of self is rooted in memories—the only thing that separated Seo-jin from Robin was that they couldn’t share the same memories, but the more they became like each other, the more that distinction began to crumble. So while in theory I totally get the symbolic I-will-marry-my-lover-knowing-he’ll-die routine, IT’S SO NOT THE SAME when that dying lover is only one half of a man’s two split personalities that are in the process of merging.

What happens to Seo-jin, or does he not have a say in this? Because I feel like he should have a say. I never blamed Hana too harshly for enabling Robin’s continued existence, because technically she fell for him thinking he was a twin, and she can’t help her feelings. But marrying him seems batshit crazy in this situation, because shouldn’t she be coming to grips with the fact that Robin and Seo-jin are the same person? What happened to her struggling with her feelings for both guys?

Don’t get me wrong—the sentiment is sweet, that she wants to replace his lost memory with a new best moment in their lives. That’s beautiful and the best thing she could do for him in the time he has left. But there have to be middle-ground options between awards ceremony and wedding, no? What’s wrong with a public serenade or an embarrassing declaration of love? Poetry slam, anyone?

And while I get that the marriage is largely symbolic, doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose and dilute the point of it? It’s a timeworn trope when one character is going to die, but we know that here, Seo-jin will remain. I just don’t see how she’s going to get over losing her husband and then fall into Seo-jin’s arms—what would’ve been natural now seems icky and vaguely adulterous. I don’t know, I’ve seen dramas paint themselves into a corner before the finale, but this makes me angry. I liked everything about Robin’s final moments and the way he said goodbye to both Hana and Seo-jin, and his desperation to leave a part of himself behind.

Except then Hana had to come up with the bright idea to marry him, and I find myself annoyed that she only thinks of Robin leaving, and not Seo-jin remaining. But maybe my problem is that I’ve always been on Seo-jin’s side while Hana has never veered away from her single-minded love for Robin; the wedding only solidifies how I don’t see eye-to-eye with her. I was feeling pretty optimistic about the finale at least wrapping things up in a satisfying manner, but now I’m not so sure that even the most obvious version of happily ever after won’t leave me a little dissatisfied.

I don't have any high expectations from this kdrama since the start so Hana marrying Robin tho this is just pretend -- we should just play along, too. anything, the writer wants to throw our way, is fine, as long as I see Hyun Bin this handsome coz it'll take some time to see him again after this, for sure. Whatever crap, the writer decides to do for the finale, is fine, we can't frigging do anything anyway.
guess it is only natural for Hana to try to hold on to Robin, and not really care much about Seo Jin coz who would soon disappear anyway, and who does she love more?

Let's just wait for the ending, it's just a few hours more with subs or right now in the raw.

This writer hmm,u know what please let Seo jin move on without Hana in his life, u were doing so good, I was this close to tears then you went all twilight zone on us. I especially feel bad for Hyun bin especially after watching an old episode of strong heart where his friend and fellow actor was talking about binnie 's rookie days.

OK. How's this? The whole story plays out with SJ and Nutsie, but at the end, we find out that she is really locked up in a hospital because she imagined Robine. She suffers from schizophrenia and dementia.
He was a figment of HER imagination.

That's similar to my ending: What if it's just a dream? Hana and Seo-Jin started off on the wrong note from the beginning. She's upset and hurt that her circus is closing. She went to bed after heavily drinking and just dreamt of this chaotic mess.

She wakes up from her crazy dream, *camera pans close to her*. She gives her usual blank face. And in her usual monotone voice, she goes: "i-geo mwo-ye-yo? (What is this?) Na mi chyuh gan da. (I'm going crazy.)" And then she goes off to play with her Bing Bing the gorilla.

During the episode I occasionally thought, "What about Ha Na's feeling for Seo Jin?" Since that wasn't touched on at all here they will have to use a time jump (or two) to make the Ha Na/Seo Jin paring work at all.

As for the wedding...ack! So many problems, and not just the ones mentioned in the recap. Half the people at the wedding don't know Robin is an actual different person; they think he's Seo Jin. So how the heck is Ha Na going to explain this when Robin disappears and doesn't spend much time with Seo Jin? And if it's an actual legal marriage (I really doubt it) that brings even more problems.

Plus if she didn't get the okay from Seo Jin to do this whole wedding fiasco ten it completely negates all of her concern for him the last two episodes.

Remind anyone of Rooftop prince?
She did the same thing, marrow done guy, he disappeared, and then probably ended up with the other guy who looks just like the guy she married!

And really guys? This is just a symbolic wedding, not a legal one.

I am concerned with how she will fall for SeoJin now though after Robin leaves....

Suz -

That was my thought, too! RTP all over again, where she ends up with the doppelganger (and, I assume) the soul of her centuries-dead love.

In this case it's even squickier because Love 1 and Love 2 share the same body. So for me it was a slack-jawed WTH moment at the end of this episode.

And I was almost on the point of thinking this might have a more poignant ending than KMHM. [sigh] Way to stumble, Show.

Yes, I totally got a Rooftop Prince Déjà vu.. But I don't want that!!!
Ugh this show was so great past week, it actually made me excited for the final but now I'm scared to watch it. I feel so bad for Seo-Jin!! In a way, it reminds me of another show, I really really like you where the girl liked one guy for the whole drama but she couldn't end up with him so like in the last episodes she just put her attentions to someone else who liked her. Like seriously, its like saying, "I'm only with you cause you were my last choice.!" ugh!! I hope Hana doesn't do that! I usually love HJM but with this show they didn't give her a great character which makes me really mad!! Like someone else said, I stuck around hoping to see if something better would happen. Hopefully the ending doesn't make me feel like I wasted 19 hours of my life.. ( I have to admit there was some interesting parts)
Please writer, don't disappoint us!!
But thank to Girlfriday for being so optimistic throughout the show! Because if I would have watched it myself...

Yah.....Same here. Had the "Rooftop Prince" deja vu as well. And a WTH face palm about the wedding. Symbolic or not I don't think the wedding scene works. And it was going so well for the last few weeks. Errrggg....I wanted to like this drama so bad but it's just not happening. Hyun Bin is the only saving grace of this drama and I hope he take on that drama with Ha JiWon. So I can forget this drama. ?

Ugh, I Really Really Like You, one of my first K Dramas. I spent so much of that drama mad at the main girl (the character, not Eugene!), for being waaaaaay too close to a MARRIED MAN, and taking FOREVER to even look at the amazing Lee Minki! I did love the setting (secret service and the Blue House!), and enjoyed parts of it quite a bit!

Thanks GF for the recap, it's a joy to read as always!

I've felt Ha Na has been selfish in the way she wants to keep Robin despite knowing how it will affect Seo-jin. But she always showed concern for Seo-jin as well, so I tried to be understanding. And of course I understood Ha Na loved Robin and didn't want to lose him.

But a wedding?????????????????????

Its is so wrong in so many ways. I can't feel comfortable rooting for Ha Na and Seo-jin to be together anymore if they go through with it. Instead, I'm now dreading the final episode.

My only comfort is Hyun Bin looked really good at the end.

Hana's out of the blue proposal made me tear up. Alzheimer's is one scary disease. I, too, realized Robin's disappearance is no different from any other terminal illness. "By the time you read this letter, I'll no longer be here" is deja vu of every terminal illness drama. My favorite part of this episode was Robin's video message to Seo Jin. "What to do to make her happy" is straight out of My Sassy Girl, and I bawled my eyes out when Cha Tae Hyun listed all the ways. Seeing as how Hana doesn't even love Seo Jin at the moment, I predict a time jump and open ending for tomorrow. Thanks for the recap, girlfriday!

Yeah, that wedding was a WTF moment. I agree that this show is really taking the misstep of not developing Seo Jin any more. The guy is literally sacrificing his body and mind for a girl, and yet the episode spends no time with his situation. I mean, don't get me wrong, I think Robin's deterioration today was well done, and that rewind moment was appropriately shocking (I thought for a sec that my stream had skipped). The actress who plays Hana also is quite a good cryer, so we should've gotten more scenes of her freaking out instead of being so happy-go-lucky. But Seo Jin, the guy who's enabling Hana to live with her boyfriend, and the guy who at the end of the show will be the last man standing, has basically been relegated to a Robin container since he stopped being a jerk.

Really, had this show been more tightly written and we'd spent most of the time with the dynamic of a woman who loves a dying man and interacting with another man who's gradually leeching the dying man's personality, essentially this episode spread out and with Seo Jin getting to do stuff, it would've been a potentially fascinating show. As it stands, even if it's compelling to watch, I'm mad that the fake guy gets a bigger sendoff than the real guy who absorbs him. They've spent no time building up Hana's attraction to Seo Jin, so it'll be really hard to believe she has real feelings for him once he's healthy, because she's only shown she really loves the part of him that's like her.

This is exactly the point. You're right. And if she ends up with SeoJin, who'd believe anything other than she's keeping him around to memorialize her love for Robin? I'd love to see this show write themselves out of this twisted mess they've created. Because I honestly don't foresee any satisfactory ending for this botched-up love triangle.
Horrible writing.

Just the humor! :-) I immediately started laughing over the ridiculousness of this moment - bc just imagine their wedding night and then waking up with SJ the next morning! Awwwwkward!!

In fact, the wedding idea is sooo bad and screws up the plotting sooo much, that the only way they can possibly redeem themselves with it is to *actually* have that scenario! At least let us have a good laugh as this whole thing ends...

Seriously, the thread with the cousin will undoubtedly end with him running the theme park, but SJ living as Robin the artist who promotes it. Ha Na will fall in love with SJ and the circus will have a happy home. Yawn!

@Susan
I laughed too. For a moment I felt like I was the crazy one or something. Because it's like, u have to be nuts to watch this show. I think the show is the one with DID, honestly. It doesn't know what it wants to be. I felt so uncomfortable about that wedding. It's like, I know what was intended but I'm just NOT feeling it.

This right here, class is good example of what happens when a show is so bad that the audience can't even BEGIN to feel the scene, much less understand it. And I mean I've loved shows that had less plot than this.

P.s About Han Ji Min, I really believe that its her character we hate, not the actor. Her character never changes and is so 1D. Still, Ha Na is starting to make ME question my sanity. I couldn't even feel sad because this was an injustice to Seo Jin.

And message to Robin: I won't miss u too much cuz at least Seo Jin will be able to actually sleep. He gave Seo Jin no sleep for THREE days!!! THREE!

I think the ending will be like Seo Jin sacrifice himself for Robin. Meaning that Seo Jin will dissapear instead of Robin. @@
Btw, how the hell the writers gonna make Hana fall for Seo Jin in just one episode ? (Assuming that Robin will dissapear forever)

I dropped this drama early on but got curious as to whether they can redeem themselves a little bit with a satisfactory ending so came here to read the recaps. I'm asking this because I genuinely don't understand and not to be snarky- No matter how much you like Robin and find him cute or pitiful, isn't he basically a 'symptom' or 'effect' of a disease which is, in this case, DID? It's one thing when you don't know about it but after you do, can you root for or fall in love with a disease much less marry it?! Isn't it wrong no matter how you see it? Was this drama ever about DID or the writer intended to sell a wicked,crazy,nonsensical love triangle all along?

Please feel free to correct me if there is something I'm missing here.

I have DID and my personalities are a part of me. They're not a side effect. They have feelings and love independently from me. You can judge the drama but please don't take their representation of DID seriously because it isn't accurate.

I am so with you on this. How in the world can somebody cling to this personality that is so blatantly a "disease"? Crazy plot. Really, was the writer having fun of the thought of DID? Clearly she has no idea, whatsoever. This drama is really going downhill, or should I say went downhill episodes ago? If the writer was just interested in a freaking love triangle, then why use the idea of DID? I absolutely don't see the point. Maybe to make her work more interesting?
I completely agree, it was indeed nonsensical love triangle all along.

Um. :)

I think there is a scientific experiment behind this one. Well-loved actors and the premise of a visual circus feast, surround with bright side characters, but only about 5 minutes of profound or touching scenes in every episode. How long will people hang in there?

Everyone seems so blown away by the sudden wedding that the truly fascinating scene when they first visit the house isn't being talked about much. It is scenes and concepts like that have kept me watching the show when I really wanted to give up: ghost-like and relatable, existential questions about the self.

Otherwise it is obvious that others, like me, have coped with watching this drama by re-writing it in imagination as it has gone along unfortunately.

Your right! The wtf wedding scene blew the really touching house and tree scene completely out of my mind. I keep watching for those scenes (especially the repeat of it the next day) but keep getting hit by some really bad decision scenes. Maybe the writer has DID.

The whole time I've been wanting the split personality story line to be more um, legitimately psychological? Robin shouldn't be losing his memories, he should be gaining Seo Jin's memories, and Seo Jin should gain Robin's and they should merge into one person. Because. Um. They are one person.

I know medicine/psychology in drama are always treated with a great deal of lisence, but in this case, doesn't sticking to ACTUAL science make for a better story?

I love Hyun Bin. That's the only reason I made it this far. I am disappoint.

"So while in theory I totally get the symbolic I-will-marry-my-lover-knowing-he’ll-die routine, IT’S SO NOT THE SAME when that dying lover is only one half of a man’s two split personalities that are in the process of merging.

What happens to Seo-jin, or does he not have a say in this? Because I feel like he should have a say. I never blamed Hana too harshly for enabling Robin’s continued existence, because technically she fell for him thinking he was a twin, and she can’t help her feelings. But marrying him seems batshit crazy in this situation, because shouldn’t she be coming to grips with the fact that Robin and Seo-jin are the same person? What happened to her struggling with her feelings for both guys?"

I feel the same thing too. From the very beginning ep i already accept that robin is fake and SJ is the reality.

My predict is that maybe they didnt manage to complete the wedding. While walking down the aisle, robin start having a headache again. Is that possible? Heh. If the wedding is success...then how about SJ? poor SJ. A lot of things still unclear like GF said.

With one ep left, its hard to see SJ-HANA loving moment. i didnt expect much-a happy ending between SJ-HANA, but hope that ME(SJ+R)-HANA will wrap up nicely, and hana will SHOW us (actions and words) that she do see them as one person NOT two but one. Be fair.

Still cant get rid, feeling sad for SJ in this ep.

An open ending maybe? Please dont writer. I really hate it.

I stopped being invested in this drama long ago mainly because of the sucky writing, so I just find this latest WTFery mildly amusing. My heart really went out to Robin though when the one thing he didn't want to lose was taken from him. Two of my loved ones have dementia, and that kind of loss is so damn painful.

I wonder if the writer will try to convince us that since SJ is recalling Robin's memories (and now, even his feelings), by marrying Robin, Hana is also sort of marrying SJ's future consciousness. As in it isn't that Robin is disappearing altogether, but rather that the two consciousnesses are really merging. Robin basically said tonight that what makes him Robin are his memories, not his body, so maybe the writer is heading towards SJ being a Seo-ro or Jin-bin in the finale.

Btw, I don't think the painting looked that much like Hana (though there were some similarities)-- if they wanted it to look just like Hana, they should've commissioned Fanderay to do it!

I did manage to watch 18 and 19 and I kind of understand the writer POV about how a personality need to have their own life and not just being push aside just because they aren't a real person.
But they failed to deliver the melodrama or whatever the conflict they had after block Taejoo screen time as overpower and softhearted villain.
Robin is as real as he thinks he is so legalized his position in front of another human being as himself (Robin) is one way to accept him in the society??
here's the thing, society that developed negative stigma or like afraid of multiple personality patient is not just because it can harms them physically or mentally but because they actually confused on how to work with them, that DID person can't function properly in society and that's why people avoid them.
To like or love another personality as real lover and make love as sole purpose of Hana stayed for Robin is as melo as possible if Hana didn't jerk-off Seo-jin.
Ro-bin is good, he can stay, but why? for who? for himself? for Hana? why he is disappear just because he accepted seo-jin? He supposed to already accepted him since they been trading hours?
and the memory trading or remembering the scene is quite bizarre because they are diff, the memory is different but having the same memory when they already separated make it a list of history, the things that been done but the feeling can't be transported, why? because seo-jin is not living that moment. Amnesia is the way a personality maintain their individuality, when they shared it, they shared the information and not the feeling, except for the host feeling that is manage and hide in the personality since both feel that.
We have many personality inside us but the dominant one is the one who stay and in control.
I just want to said that an understanding when both of them have the same memory and the acceptance that one can not live without the help with others is what they need, no matter how Hana sugar coated it. It is Seo-jin that need to be handle in 1st priority, because Seo-jin split himself and even become selfless yet "can" be one of idiocy sign because he just surrender like that for Hana's sake? Hana that doesn't able to understand his POV to change or encourage him?
I still didn't get why Ro-bin need to stay other than to occupied Hana selfish love when Ro-bin supposed to be helping Seo-Jin and make him disappear because his memory is lost and he can't make Hana happy in the future is a man-made shortcut for dramatic portrayal and how he is soooo important in this Seo-Jin and Tae-Joo coming to age journey.

I hope, as someone else mentioned, that Robin fades during the walk down the aisle and the wedding doesn't happen. What a ridiculous plot twist. It isn't true to any of the characters at this point in the story. It's the exact opposite of what the three of them have been trying to accomplish. So, Seo Jin comes back and interrupts the wedding, Hana gets distraught because Robin has dissapeared - and we time skip. lol

i can already predict the ending would be like: after robin disappear forever, hana will go back to US(or wherever she came from in the 1st ep. can't remember). then it will be a few months later, or a few years later. then she comes back, met seo jin again. and the last ending scene will probably be they kiss or even better, hana saves seo jin's ass again from that funny gorrila, they stares into each other and bam, end.

Maybe Hana isn't meant to fall in love with Seo Jin. No matter how he has improved from cold guy asshole — Hana fell in love with an entirely different personality no matter how "the same person" and "body" they are. In fact I would be happy if the story ended with her not moving on to Seo Jin because it's been evident to me from day one that Hana only cared for Seo Jin as a person she pitied (and later that Robin needed.) Hana has never once seen Seo Jin as a man since she doesn't relate them as the same person. To her Robin has always been a person apart from Seo Jin and to have her end up with him betrays the whole way she was written and portrayed.

To anyone watching this: the show hasn't represented DID even remotely accurately so please just assume that instead of DID, Seo Jin was possessed by a spirit of someone kinder than him. I have DID and this whole representation is a disgrace.

Its like rooftop prince ending all over again. But this time i dont feel it cos i'm always in SeoJin team. I understand the wedding is not real, but it still annoys me cos I think they sld involve SeoJin in this. It's his body anyways..

I like Robin, but Hana loves an alter ego, so she sld know from the start her position. The writer sld consider making Hana more likeable to SeoJin fan.. With this plot, I cant care more about her and her feelings.

Ps: my God! HyunBin in wedding scene was too handsome. Maybe thats why Hana lost her mind.

Whoa I usually disagree with the ships that are being supported in this site, but this time I couldn't agree more. Marrying Robin is idiotic at this point. I bet they'll paint it in a nice way somehow, but still..My only hope is that Seojin will gain consciousness before the wedding starts and that he'll call it off. But that's wishful thinking. Anywho, I hope to see her being with Seojin somehow in the finale, although I may not be completely satisfied.

Thank you for saying what we were all thinking. I stopped enjoying watching this a long time ago, even though I keep coming back hoping it would get better or make sense. After Hana found out about his DID I was hoping she would then be helpful and understanding towards Seo Jin and a proper healing process can begin..but even though she's been nice to SJ I still find her so so so incredibly selfish, I literally can't stand her character. Now this tops it all off. Whatever the ending, nothing can redeem her in my eyes, and just like so many of you have said - I think Seo Jin deserves so much better!

*laughs hysterically* This is the dumbest idea Hana has ever had.... and there have been a close few. Eesh.
Like I said in the previous episode, her falling in love with Seojin doesn't make sense, especially after this. It'll be insincere and "icky" as girlfriday aptly mentioned. I won't believe it even if there was a convenient time skip or an added episode to tie the many loose ends created from this mess. I get that she loves Robin soooo much but with this avid passion directed to one side, how would she suddenly switch to the other side and convince us she's sincere about Seojin? Impossible...
Anyway, it's too late to stop watching now, so I'll just keep on until the finale. The writer has a lot of work cut out for him/her. This is a mess.

Wished for and had hoped or thought that the last 2 - 4 episodes of HJM would end on a better and higher note. After episode 19, everything is up in the air.

I think the writer just wants to toy with and troll us. The writing is dazed (not in a good way) and confused (baffle further rather than clarify). Even more so after episode 19.

Yes Robin is the alternate identity in Seo-Jin's body. As for why Ha-Na continues to choose Robin over Seo-Jin — it boils down to first impressions. First encounters normally set the tone for the rest of the relationship that follows. First impressions can be nearly impossible to reverse or undo.

Beautiful & stylish wedding attire exists, is this the best PPL (Product Placement) they could do for Ha-Na & Robin's wedding? There are so many beautiful, surprisingly versatile and totally fresh, clean, modern styles of wedding dresses and men's wedding suits & tuxedos from black tie to casual to choose from.

I think it is over for Seo Jin and Hana now.

Seo Jin is not, and never was, Robin.

And Robin is dead, long live... Terry?

What's the point for Seo Jin to be with Hana now? If they kiss, Seo Jin will know that Hana is thinking of someone else who went away.

And what's Hana's point? Is it for closure? You marry for closure? You MARRY FOR CLOSURE? Wait, what? Who marries for closure? No, you don't marry for closure, you marry because that's the OTP. So then it is curtains for Seo Jin and Hana.

Seo Jin never had a chance, just like every other nice guy or not nice guy second lead in a kdrama. Once the OTP is established, that's it, it's done.

Bottom line - the wondrously talented and supremely good looking Binnie picked the wrong DID drama with the wrong writers and the wrong cast.

Maybe this is a truck and Robin was the main guy while Seo-jin was the second lead this whole time.. I mean since nothing from episode 1 has made much sense (ziplining from the heavens, heroine's bestie CG gorilla no longer mentioned, an inactive circus crew, usual baddie as father now a harmless softie in this drama, no chemistry between Seo-jin and Hana, police's inability to catch one guy for most of the drama, etc), Robin might as well be the main lead. He sure got a lot of attention/screentime than a normal second lead.

So glad I'm not the only one who had a WTF moment at that wedding hall! For real writer-nim? I was expecting some spontaneous actions after SJ's message to " give HaNa all the love she deserves." Anyone else get sexy thoughts from that directive? But how to get to that kind of stuff legitimately in a k-drama? Apparently faux marriage. Crazy!

I agree with the possibility of a time jump in the last episode. It's too bad though because I wanted to see all the ways HaNa comes to realize she's in love with one person. I guess because they went the route of Robin being an escape for SJ (figment of his imagination embodied) and not a piece of SJ that has broken off, it is acceptable in their world that HaNa experiences them as separate people. But then why all the little moments of supposed glimpses into how SJ and Robin are similar.

HaNa needed to see Dr. Kang a long time ago. I was shipping SJ-HaNa but I can't believe she hasn't spent any time looking into this thing called DID that her man suffers from or SJ's childhood beyond the kidnapping. It's kind of feels gross, like she's using SJ's body. So when Robin is gone, SJ is left with Robin's memories/emotions (including this faux wedding) of being with Hana and he is in love with her but Hana's all like " You're not the man you were?" Urggh. SJ needs someone better than Hana. At least after this episode Hana can't overlook the fact that SJ is the real owner of that body. I also hope SJ doesn't "sacrifice" and dissolve leaving Robin.

HB loves crazy dramas, so I'm not too disappointed in this one. It gave him a lot of opportunities to stretch/get back in the game after being away.

I rarely post on dramabeans anymore, but I'm glad that the readers here resonates what I and from the rest of koala's readers have been feeling with this show. Anyway this is what I posted over there:

Okay so I haven’t watched the latest episode yet but after reading that Ha Na is marrying Robin, I just cannot help to withhold my opinion of this anymore. Firstly, yes Koala, Ha Na needs to admit herself to a ward. She is clearly insane. Equally insane are these people around her that plays along with it. I don’t know if the writer is just woefully clueless or that she’s thinking that there is too little people watching anyway, and might as well half-ass it all the way to the end. There is not much of a resolution to come from this, instead it’s a regression. In fact, it’s 10 steps back as far as finishing this drama goes. Not only did they made zero headway of trying to cure Seo Jin’s DID, they are actively trying to UNcure him. (Luckily, Seo Jin is treating himself regardless). The message it clearly sends is that we foster insanity because some person cannot reconicle her own feelings (and sanity).That’s selfish. You’re very selfish Ha Na.

At this point, clearly, Ha Na should already be able to accept that Robin is Seo Jin. She doesn’t even have to deny Robin’s existence to do that. Accepting Robin and Seo Jin is one and the same does not deny Robin’s existence, it’s an acknowledgement that even if Robin disappears, Ha Na can ultimately love Robin through Seo Jin. Technically, the fact that Ha Na loves Robin, means that she loves Seo Jin–even if only a part of him. The whole is still Seo Jin. You could make a case that Ha Na only loves half of Seo Jin, but that is still Seo Jin. Robin is Seo Jin. Let that marinate and simmer to your being Ha Na, dammit.

But no, our respected writer insists that two personalities are separate and therefore we treat them dividedly. This is a conflict of logic if you guys haven’t noticed it yet. At one hand, writer is insisting that Robin is SO real that Ha Na is willing to marry HIM (not Seo Jin), but at the same time, writer is pushing for a resolution in which Robin BECOMES Seo Jin. No, Seo Jin IS Robin in the first place. But if at this point Ha Na and everybody else is still willing to accept Robin as Robin and Seo Jin as Seo Jin, then how in the world does a resolution in which both becomes one in any form the conclusion? So Ha Na will love Seo Jin only half-heartedly? Please tell me that this writer is not suffering DID and writes one part of the story then later changes it when she wakes up the next morning.

Unless she comes up with a plot twist and Seo Jin disappears and Robin becomes the dominant personality then these actions would make more sense. At one hand that is tragic, but at the same time it’s consistent. And I would probably even applaud the writer for one, being a pioneer. Who said that the lead character (Seo Jin) have to have the “good ending?”

The gorilla is better, it just looked more like kingkong in development and never appear again. If the purpose to make seojin looked coward, they can replace it with any other danger since it never appear again.
The basement is a memory inside the character's mind, it blurr and not in high quality and represent the crooked and supress memories, it serve it purpose well and later played in actual scene that filmed. So the audience get payoff. And maybe someone complaint about it, but in KMHM comment sectio.

Thanks GirlFriday for the recaps. I was with this episode till the wtf wedding scene. Even if it's not legal it's messed up.

Whether we were rooting for Robin or Seo Jin after this scene future development between Seo Jin and crazy girl is going to be hard. Even if Seo Jin is accepting of the fact that she loved Robin. Personally, if I were Seo Jin, I would think she would come to love me only as an extension of Robin. I'm too selfish for that.

Everything before that scene was great. As much as I enjoy Hyun Bin, I am going to stop watching him if he keeps making me tear up. (Ha - no I won't.)

I do have a lot of questions in my mind.

1st:
Where's Terry? The 3rd personality within them? Just appear on that episode and disappear just then? So many of us thought that Terry could be hiding and planning something big which could bring up the disappointment earlier in the show. It's kinda disappointing and I hope it could actually bring out the suspense, to see Hyun Bin acting as a bad guy for maybe few episodes.

2nd:
I thought that it's supposed to be Seo-Jin fading and cease to exist. The moments when Seo-Jin struggled to know the truth and how he would react after knowing could improve on the show. And just another episode, it become a 360 degree reversal where Robin is the one who is going to disappear. So many holes in the plot left unanswered.

3rd:
And Episode 18 was so nice, and then the horror came during Episode 19. That wedding scene. What the hell? It's like demoting Seo-Jin, supposedly the main character and the one I am actually rooting for, to be a side-kick? How is the plot going to smoothly transit into Ha-Na accepting Seo-Jin?

But still, girlfriday, I've always had pleasure reading your recaps! Thanks!

I seriously feel cheated on Terry that brings nothing except a shock buzz. Why i said nothing, because no one ever talked about it again. Like it supposed to be over suddenly and never appear. Even the 5 years big build up history didn't showed, or I missed the scene, I think they just explain it is dangerous as it seems in narrative way. Always try to not bring it up but that pTerry name really sounds strange and can be an actual conflict .

I could be watching this episode in a hurry, but him forgetting his memory and then relating to Hana that his memory (or more like the day of the award ceremony with Hana) is gone.. what does that supposed to mean? Once you have forgotten something doesn't it mean that you are not even supposed to remember the particular event that you have forgotten?

I guess my theory doesn't make sense anyways. Thank you show for being so bizarre. Off to watch episode 20 hoping for a more bizarre ending to cap off one of the most talent-wasted show I've ever watched so far. :(

I don't know about you guys but this episode made me really sad, it's been a long time since any drama has made me feel any way.
The way Robin was afraid to disappear really got to me.
I get that the wedding is such an out-brainer but it is still too sad to me.

Not sad. Just lazy,silly cliched melo. I wanted to see a grown
Women fighting with herself to be a loving supportive gf who wants her love to be cured and whole because that's what he needs, even if it hurts. Obviously a cure is a resolution of
Personalities but even the shrink seemed unclear about this
as if she was surprised. Nobody explained this to Hana so
She could be in dumb denial the whole show like a 16 year old nursing a crush.
Also why do k dramas wallow in soggy tears at the drop of a hat in lieu of a plot idea, even when a rom com is the original direction? Is the audience that fond of angst? idol music videos are full of sick,dying girlfriends too.
Maybe a tight, written ahead script is the real solution.

It's been a while since I cried this much over a drama. Hyun Bin and Han Ji Min's acting were that convincing in this episode. Hyde, Jekyll, and Me sometimes surprises and moves me with its dialogues that I can't help but wonder why the creator of the story, who obviously is capable of meaningful interactions, failed to develop everyone else except Seo-jin and Robin. Nevertheless, I'm glad I've decided to be forgiving about this drama's shortcomings episodes ago; otherwise, I wouldn't have reached this far and gotten what I've wanted, which is to see lots of interaction between Hyun Bin and Han Ji Min. Hana's wedding proposal to Robin didn't bother me so much because they can't have an official wedding to begin with; it's only for Robin's final memories, right? In fact, I thought it was sweet. Crazy, but sweet. Shallow it may sound, I have to admit I also enjoyed the last scene partially because the couple looked stunning together. LOL. Of course, the wedding scene did raise numerous questions, questions I doubt I'll ever find answers nor will I bother to find out.

Thanks for the recap, girlfriday:)
