Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 20 (Final)

This long denouement is an answer to the difficult and painful truths we’ve had to deal with so far. It’s an episode full of substance, and takes its time to craft a fitting send-off to the characters we’ve grown to love, as well as the ones we decidedly didn’t. Bittersweet crosses to simply sweet, as we circle back to what this story is really about — not company politics, not revenge or retribution, but just how two children overcame abuse to find a way to exist in the world without carrying the burdens of their past.

With all the intense character moments and the inevitable goodbyes, keep your tissues handy. There’s going to be lots of things in all your eyes. Thank you all for your patience! Now let’s ride this train together one last time.

FINAL EPISODE RECAP

Ri-jin shows Dr. Seok CCTV footage of the new alter, “Mr. X,” which shows a caped figure enter her room. She tells him how Perry Park left for good, and Dr. Seok replies that it’s possible the new alter arose in response. He says that Mr. X could either be a helper personality who will facilitate the treatment, or the opposite.

Do-hyun stops short when he finds his office occupied. In a magician’s cape and top hat, the new alter invites Do-hyun to open a briefcase. Do-hyun looks away in confusion, but when he looks back, the room is empty. Do-hyun, eyes wide, tells Chief Ahn that he thinks he saw Mr. X, in a bout of co-consciousness. His head rings sharply, and the chief anxiously takes him home.

Now recovered, Do-hyun works from home, and his diligence surprises Chief Ahn. The chief has other news for Do-hyun. He reveals that Min Seo-yeon’s driver, who was new that day, got the job under the auspices of Do-hyun’s dad.

The shock of the news brings on the telltale ringing. Fighting the pain, Do-hyun tells the chief to secure the driver’s testimony immediately — he needs to know the truth.

Alone, he remembers little Ri-jin showing him her locket. The pain, insistent, takes him again.

Ri-jin catches “Princess Yo-na” sneaking out to Oppa, decked in her new pink headband. They scuffle and Yo-na calls out, “Mr X!” which gets Ri-jin’s attention quick. Just for lols, Yo-na hawks a gobbet of gum right into Ri-jin’s face. Laughing her head off, she refuses to divulge the secret for free…

Ri-jin bursts into Ri-on’s room and rattles off a profuse apology, promising to spend her whole life atoning. Horrified understanding dawns on him when Yo-na bounds in. Ri-jin shuts the door (“I’m sorry Oh Ri-on, forgive me Oh Ri-on, I love you Oh Ri-on”) but Yo-na locks them in. Oh my days.

She tackles him onto the bed. Trapped, he wails and flails while she toys with him, a cat preying on a mouse. Poor molested Ri-on, I’m (not) sorry you’re suffering for my lols!

She makes him sit still, and sings him “Oppa, Cheer up,” the Yo-na version (based on children’s song “Cheer Up, Dad“) but HAHAHA, “Oppa, cheer up! Yo-na’s going to… give you a kiss~!” Ri-on desperately blurts that he’s leaving for army service. She sobs — for about two seconds, and threateningly holds up a copy of his 2010 discharge papers, the evidence of his lie.

She proceeds to take a million selcas of herself with Oppa, and you can’t blame him if his smile is more of a grimace. No fight left in him, he submits to her kisses.

Ri-jin still has her ear to the door when Yo-na whips it open, waving a prize photo of Oppa. Ri-jin gasps at her brother’s kiss-covered face while he flails and sobs even more, convinced he’s ruined for life. Ri-jin, are you laughing at Oppa?

Ri-jin comes to collect on her promise from Yo-na: What does she know about Mr. X? Yo-na cryptically tells her to smile brightly: “Mr. X disappears when you become happy.” But that’s all she’ll say.

Yo-na claims the bed for the night, and this time Ri-jin lets her. They settle down to sleep. In her tough-girl way, Yo-na speaks: “For treating me like a friend, thank you. And for treating me like a sister, thank you. For granting my wish today, thank you. Just… thanks for everything.”

Ri-jin sits up, recognizing it’s a goodbye. Eyes full, Yo-na tells her she was the first girl she met who could fight. She tells Ri-jin to be well, and closes her eyes. Ri-jin watches over her.

Yo-sub calls Yo-na to him. Ri-jin noona is at Do-hyun hyung’s side now, he tells her. They have to go so the couple can be at ease. Yo-na runs past him crying, and dissolves in a spray of pink. There’s something in my eye.

Yo-sub quotes French poet Paul Valéry: “The wind is rising. We must try to live.” He adds, “Goodbye, noona. Thank you.”

Then he, too, dissolves into the breeze.

Do-hyun wakes up with Yo-na’s headband in his hand. He knows what it means, and carefully folds away her pink blazer for the last time.

Ri-jin sniffles in front of her mirror, hands over her face. She tells him Yo-na left, “After doing this” — and shows him her face. HAHA. Yo-na gets the last penultimate laugh after all, because across Ri-jin’s forehead, thoroughly misspelled, she’s scribbled “vicious chick.”

Ri-jin bawls that she fell asleep for just a moment, and that’s when Yo-na left. Do-hyun consoles her by calling her “unni” in Yo-na’s voice, telling her she’ll mess up her makeup.

In the hospital, Do-hyun’s dad opens his eyes. Do-hyun gets the news from Chief Ahn, who adds that Dad wants to atone for the past, and so wants to see Ri-jin and his son together. Do-hyun hurries from Ri-jin’s house, saying he’ll see her at his house later.

While he drives, he clutches his ringing head, roiling with suspicions of Dad’s involvement in Min Seo-yeon’s death.

At Do-hyun’s house, Ri-jin finds a lump hiding under the covers in her room. She peels the cover back and is greeted by Se-gi’s giant teddy bear. From behind it, Do-hyun peeks out. He gazes at her with limpid eyes, and waves the bear’s paw. Realization dawns, and Ri-jin tentatively asks, “Nana?”

She says the bear’s name is Nana, and Ri-jin finishes — her name is Cha Do-hyun, isn’t it? We see the little girl now, and Ri-jin tells her she knows, “Because you… are me.” She explains that she’s little Do-hyun’s adult self, and little Do-hyun is her child-self. She lovingly tells her younger self how happy and loved she is now, “So much that it overflows.”

She wants to say one more thing: Back then, when that ajusshi was angry, it wasn’t because she did anything wrong. Telling her not to be scared or hurt anymore, she reassures the little girl that it’s okay for her to go now. She’ll look after Cha-gun.

But little Do-hyun can’t go alone because she doesn’t know the way. She asks Ri-jin to call Mr. X. But who is Mr. X? “My daddy,” the little girl replies.

A memory. The two children draw pictures on the basement floor, and little Ri-jin looks longingly towards the door. If her dad were there, she says, they could get out. Do-hyun tells her he heard her dad was dead, which makes her cry. Do-hyun, you heartbreaker. He quickly takes it back — of course he’ll come. He paints a comforting promise of her father watching over her from the heavens.

Do-hyun jolts awake, bear in hand, while Ri-jin watches over him. He asks if Nana was there, and she wordlessly pulls him into a hug. “For your mind splintering again because of me, I’m sorry, and sorry again. But thank you,” she says. At last, she grasps the extent of his pain, she tells him, and how much hope he gave her — he really did save her. She cries into his shoulder, grateful that they got to meet again, so she could say those words.

Do-hyun is still tortured by the fear that his father killed Ri-jin’s mother. In his bathroom, co-consciousness strikes once again as Mr. X appears in the mirror. Once again, he invites Do-hyun to open the box. This time, Do-hyun steels himself and opens it.

There’s only a teddy bear inside, and it’s not frightening at all (unless you’re the bear). Mr. X proves his point that until Do-hyun looks for himself, he won’t know whether what’s inside is gold or a bomb.

“The extent of my imagination decides the size of my fear,” says Mr. X. Do-hyun realizes that means he has to go check the facts himself. Mr. X encourages Do-hyun to confront his past, and spend his imagination on his future.

From Nana’s memories, he now knows who Mr. X is. Mr. X says he took on this form because that’s how Do-hyun made him. As for why he looks like a magician, Mr. X says that must be how a kid imagines a dad. He quips that Do-hyun has no idea how glad he is that he’s not Superman.

Eyes full of conviction, Do-hyun tells Mr. X that he will protect Ri-jin from now on, and get stronger. Do-hyun tells him he can rest easy now, and Mr. X agrees. A moment later, Do-hyun is alone — surprised, but content.

Do-hyun stands by his father’s bedside. Dad sits up and asks if he’s Joon-young. He marvels that he’s completely grown up, and wants to see him better. Wasting no words, Do-hyun tells Dad that being in a coma for so long didn’t erase his sins and turn him into a victim. He’s only here to find out if Dad was responsible for Grandpa’s and Min Seo-yeon’s deaths.

In a private meeting between the family execs, Ki-joon begins a speech to Grandma about Do-hyun’s job capability. Unfazed, Do-hyun interrupts to ask if it’s about his DID. Uncle and son look smug, but Do-hyun counters with his own concerns about Uncle.

His father revealed that Uncle had bribed the driver to delay the two from leaving the country that day. The accident that killed them was pure misfortune. Dad admits that he covered up his findings at the time because he coveted the chairman’s seat. Do-hyun tells his uncle that Dad kept a recording of an incriminating conversation between the two of them. The transcript Grandma has in front of her is that conversation, he says. She looks at Uncle with horror.

Uncle scoffs that that won’t stop Do-hyun’s secret coming out. But Do-hyun has more dirt on him — reams of documents prove he embezzled company money, as well as laundering money via his wife’s gallery. Even Ki-joon looks shocked now.

Do-hyun rejects Uncle’s offer to compromise by hiding each other’s flaws. His secret won’t land him in jail, whereas Uncle’s definitely will. Ki-joon is stricken and Grandma steps in. To protect the company, she offers to cede Seungjin to Do-hyun. Uncle sweeps out, defeated and indignant, and Ki-joon follows.

Grandma says that Do-hyun was right — he’s not a monster. The monsters were other people. She almost smiles at him, in what must be the first time in 21 years. She urges him to get treatment and recover: She’ll protect Seungjin for him until he comes back.

Chief Ahn tells Do-hyun that Ri-jin went to see his father. As he’s about to run out, he’s struck by the pain in his head again.

Ri-jin steps into the room, and Dad is affected by her resemblance to her mother. He kneels at her feet. Eyes brimming, he thanks her for being alive. He knows his sins against her were too great to carelessly ask forgiveness, but he woke up, he says, out of his earnest wish to atone to her.

Do-hyun bursts in, except he’s Se-gi, and he’s livid. Does Dad want forgiveness? Crouching to be eye-level with him, Se-gi grabs Dad in a choke and spits at him to die — to disappear from the world as quickly as possible.

Looking into Se-gi’s face, Dad’s mind goes back to the fire, and the memory of little Joon-young/Se-gi’s face then. He seems to realize something.

Ri-jin urges Se-gi to stop, and finally pulls him away. Standing between father and son, she tells Dad that his forgiveness will have to wait. If she tries to forgive him, it will be for the sake of this person, she says, indicating Se-gi. This person, who, instead of Dad, spent his whole life protecting her and being in apology to her.

To Se-gi, she says the words he last said to her, to run away anywhere — away from their scary memories. She tugs him out with her. Alone, Dad is racked with sobs.

Se-gi and Ri-jin ride away on a motorbike, and in a voiceover, she asks him what present she can get him. His answer is simple: “You.”

They light sparklers together in the twilight. Full of sad bravado, Se-gi tells her he’s thinking about how he can make time stop, or somehow stay with her forever. Eyeing her suspiciously, he turns away, convinced she wants him to disappear.

She coaxes him to look at her. With a steady gaze, she tells him that he was the first person to say her word was law. He hangs on the word “person,” noting that she finally came to see him as his own person, not just an alter. But until she sees him as a man, he doesn’t think he can go.

He asks for his present. She steps up to him, and kisses him. For everything he did for her, this was the only present she could think of, she says. Gruff, he tells her it was a good choice — unsurpassable. He pulls her in again for a deeper kiss.

We get a montage of Se-gi’s memories with Ri-jin: There’s their first kiss in the pumpkin-carriage; then, when he asked Ri-jin to run away with him, and just now, when Ri-jin asks him to run away with her. Entreating Ri-jin not to kill him is overlapped by the memory of her taking his hand.

Face to face in their mental ether, Do-hyun asks Se-gi why he’s leaving if he doesn’t want to. Se-gi shrugs that he isn’t needed anymore. He calls him “Cha-gun,” and threatens to come back and take over Do-hyun’s body and time if he becomes a weakling again, “So it would be good if you lived well.”

They share crooked half-smiles, although Do-hyun is sniffing back tears. He extends his fist to Se-gi for a bump, and for a second, Se-gi flexes his fingers and you think he’s going to leave him hanging. Oh Se-gi, you make me laugh at the same time as you make me cry. They touch knuckles, and Se-gi charges him again to live well.

But Do-hyun has one more thing to say: “Shin-gun. You’re… me.”

“I’m… you,” he replies, “So live with style.” They hold each other’s eyes, and the tattoo fades.

Do-hyun releases Ri-jin. Tears stream down her face, and Do-hyun smiles at her through his own tears. Holding her face between his hands, he wipes her cheeks. This time as himself, he kisses her again, wrapping his arms around her.

One year later.

Ri-jin takes a break from work in the hospital staffroom. She reads an ad for Omega’s new bestseller, “Kill Me, Heal Me.” Her eyes widen at the tagline, “A romance between a DID chaebol and a female doctor.”

She remembers when Ri-on asked her if he seemed like the type to profit from another’s misfortune. “Yes! That’s exactly what it looks like,” she growls, cursing out her absent brother. Haha!

Ri-on’s busy scoping out how his book is doing — incognito, of course. Another customer (cameo by SNSD’s Yuri) snatches up the copy he was reaching for, and cajoles Ri-on to let her have it — it’s a copy with a hidden message from the author inside.

He perks up at her fangirling, and offers her a pen dug out from his pocket. It was a gift from Writer Omega, he says, and claims to be a distant relative. She immediately asks him out for coffee, and he introduces himself as “Oh Hui” (his ladies’ man persona).

“I’m Yo-na,” she says. “Ahn Yo-na.” HAHAHA. Horrified Ri-on can’t run away fast enough. The girl gives chase, calling for Oppa.

Do-hyun splits wood and Ri-jin’s dad complains he’s making tinder of it. Dad grumbles to Mom, but she’s firmly on Do-hyun’s side — he’s so handsome, the (female) customers just come rolling in. She wonders if it’s time to matchmake “Perry” and their daughter, but Dad protests — that guy’s been unemployed for a year!

That unemployed guy is on the phone right now, talking shop with Executive Director Ahn (ha, what is your hair?). The director tells him Grandma is waiting for him to come back, but Do-hyun is satisfied with his present life. “Here, each day is new and happy,” he tells him.

Do-hyun lies in the sun, eyes closed, when Ri-jin’s shadow falls across him — the opposite of the shadow that haunted their childhood memories. She joins him, and they lie side by side. She playfully scolds him for being carefree by himself when it’s his girlfriend’s day off.

He produces a box, and shows her a pair of couple rings. Although she plays hard to get (again, lol), she happily submits when Do-hyun puts one on her. She does the same for him, and they hold up their hands to admire them.

“Couple rings are the sweetest handcuffs in the world!” Ri-jin squees. The rings glint in the sun, and they twine their pinkies together in a wordless promise.

Do-hyun narrates in voiceover: “Within each person’s heart is a dark basement. If you look away or stand by, that darkness thickens. You must summon your courage to go down and turn on the light. If you’re scared to go alone, you can hold someone’s hand.”

Little Do-hyun and Ri-jin hold hands. Laughing and smiling, the children walk together into a brightly lit room, as adult Do-hyun’s narration continues: “If I’m with you, I’m not afraid.”

The couple lie together on the grass, hands entwined and eyes closed, smiling.

COMMENTS

OMG the credits! I thought I was ready to let this show go AND THEN YOU GO AND DO THAT. There are so many things in my eye right now, like my HEART. I don’t know where to start. I don’t want to finish.

That ending scene sums up one of the things I love most about Ri-jin and Do-hyun’s relationship. It characterizes how they do everything important: mutually, and without ceremony. They don’t seek recognition or validation from anyone but each other — that’s all they need, and that’s I’ve had so much confidence in them.

Grandma’s turnabout was a little too pat, but I suppose we can account for it by saying getting her son back softened her up (huh). But the show makes the point that even in accidents where no one person is to blame, everyone has some responsibility. Although the situation that led to the children’s abuse and its subsequent cover-up was a string of unfortunate accidents, the abuse itself was anything but. So Do-hyun’s dad got a fitting end. Redemption and forgiveness aren’t free, you don’t get them because you want them — you have to consciously earn it. Bluntly put, it was unfair of Dad to put Ri-jin in that position, when he knelt to her. Remember how she told Do-hyun she can’t refuse people’s requests? The conflict is evident in her face at that moment, and Se-gi’s timely arrival is one more way he saves her, because she wasn’t ready to forgive him, but she seemed on the brink of having her hand subtly forced.

She’s able to return the favor a moment later when she puts herself between Se-gi and Dad — not to save Dad, but to save Se-gi from becoming that person. And yet, there’s something pitiful about Dad’s agony that twists your heart. It’s the punishment I wanted, but it doesn’t really give me any pleasure. I’ll forgo the discussion about whether his revival was unnecessary, because it was important for them to look their monster in the eye, and cut their nightmares down to size.

But the best thing that came of it was the radical shift in how Ri-jin conceives Se-gi. In every previous occasion of Se-gi getting violent, she calls for Do-hyun. But for the first time, she calls Se-gi’s name — instinctively trusting that he’ll respond to her. Se-gi’s desires have always been simple: to protect Ri-jin, and to be recognized and loved by her. Once fulfilled, he’s at peace. He’s the only one so much part of Do-hyun — the first to come and the last to go, his equal and opposite — that he doesn’t dissipate. He’s folded into Do-hyun’s consciousness, in a way that is both not there, and yet always there. That’s why Ri-jin is able to kiss him – because he is Do-hyun, and Do-hyun is him.

As hilarious as Yo-na has been, until now, she felt like a one-note character, milked only for the comedy. But her send-off gave her the depth she needed, while staying true to her feisty, uncomplicated nature. Her sorrow at leaving and her gratitude for being known were achingly sweet, underlaid by a wholehearted love for Ri-jin that only showed itself now. It’s amazing that Yo-na was completely real to me: Ji Sung made me believe he was a teenage girl. And then he made me cry. (Give this man an award already!)

I wasn’t sure how Mr. X would work as a last-minute introduction, but thankfully, he didn’t bring any game-changing elements. On the contrary, as a completely new alter, Mr. X serves to remind us that Do-hyun absorbing his alters and gaining a measure of stability doesn’t mean he gets a magical “cure.” His vulnerability continues to exist, but he’s chosen a path of accepting it. This episode in particular took care to highlight to us the nature of his inner world. Every time he blinks and finds himself alone in an empty room, it’s a jarring and sudden reminder that his encounters with his alters are events in his consciousness, without any outer reality.

With each departure, Do-hyun’s sense of peace grows palpably, and you can see the complicated blend of sadness coupled with satisfaction. It’s an effective reminder that the characters that were so real and lovable to us were, nevertheless, products of a broken mind. Ri-jin legitimately grieves for each one, but their grief isn’t the same. I want to hold on to what he implied to Se-gi — “gone” doesn’t mean “dead.” They’re dormant inside his living mind, so they’re never dead. But I am sad that we had to wait twenty episodes to get some real Se-gi x Do-hyun bromance, and then it didn’t last longer. Like, you know, forever.

Looking back on the show as a whole, it has been so consistently satisfying that I don’t really want to pick at its flaws (although I do want to know what happened to Do-hyun’s mom while everyone else got their adieus…). Kill Me, Heal Me always chose to tell the most interesting story, with style and self-awareness — I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a chaebol drama relegate corporate machinations to little more than a tertiary storyline. It felt like the writer knew what she was doing 99% of the time, and it showed in the effortless subversions and fluid tonal shifts, attention to detail, and an overall intricacy in its construction.

The message the show leaves us with is no less satisfying — that it’s vital to depend on our loved ones, and to seek out the truth despite our fears. We’re never so broken that we can’t be helped. While the illness doesn’t always have a cure, it does always demand love, and willingness to go on the journey.

After I pick up my heart and brain pieces, I will always remember what RJ say to YS : "Everyone has several people living inside them. There's the me who wants to die and the me who wants to live. I live everyday fighting with the me who wants to give up and the me who wants to at least grab at straws. You don't have the courage to fight"…I will fight to live my life and I want to be strong too like her, I admire you so much RJ.

I will believe in life the way DY said in the end of the show: “Within each person’s heart is a dark basement. If you look away or stand by, that darkness thickens. You must summon your courage to go down and turn on the light. If you’re scared to go alone, you can hold someone’s hand”

Last but not least, as Odessa Jones said on Koreandrama.today : “Kill Me, Heal Me is weird, messy, and imperfect; but also creative, beautiful and full of heart—just like human beings” yep as human beings we will...

Thank you for the last review! You captured all of my thoughts and emotions into words. Ji Sung better win daesang or I will be very disappointed. How can a man in his late 30's convincingly make me believe he is a teenage girl? NO ONE but Ji Sung. KMHM FTW!

You know what else I loved? I loved how Cha Do Hyun never seemed embarrassed that one of his personalities was a girl. That's quite a feat, and one that I doubt many Korean Manly Men could pull off.

In the last scene, where Oh Ri Jin is crying because Yo Na left while she was sleeping, Cha Do Hyun pulls out an "unni" and Yo Na's sassy-voice to make Ri Jin feel better. He's standing there in a schoolgirl outfit and pink lipstick and crooning "unni" in his best teen-girl voice, and yet he's still so obviously a *man*. A man who was never ashamed of the fierce, feisty part of himself who came out to play whenever he couldn't handle life.

Remember, Yo Na was the part of him who loved life so much that she plays a counterpart to Yo Sub, who only wants to die. Yo Na might seem shallow and silly, but she's fiercely determined to grab life (and Ri On oppa!) with both hands and hang on. Cha Do Hyun recognizes that, and I love that he is never ashamed of Yo Na (he might be ashamed of the things she *does*, but he's never ashamed of her existence, if that makes sense).

I tip my hat to Ji Sung for playing this character with such comedy, but also with such sensitivity.

I'm crying again JUST FROM READING THE RECAP. Thanks purplecow and saya for recapping this... Reading your opinions/recaps/seeing the screenshots really helped me kinda of relive episodes, and watching this drama without them would have felt incomplete xD Ughhhh I'm going to miss this drama so much; definitely not perfect by any means with its huge unnecessary flashback party around episode 15-17, but my heart says it's perfect so that's that. Ji Sung I swear to God if you don't get an acting award for this I'm going to be SO PISSED. I have so many more thoughts about this drama but I just can't seem to say it at the moment... SSANGRI FAMILY JJANG!!

Thank you for the review.

This drama has exceeded all my doubts and made me love some of the most memorable characters ever. I cannot believe it when I say that those fictitious multiple personalities are going to stick longer in my mind that so many OTPs.

There will never be another Yoona in Kdrama land. That girl seriously rocks.

Yoo Seob made my heart break with his sad acceptance of life and how life sucks.

Can't even begin to even talk about the OTP. Their chemistry rocks and screeching or not- she was a well written female lead.

But but but... Yoona oh Yoona, she embraced life and knew no boundaries. Can't even see another girl pouting now after her and she elevated the OPW ( Oppa pout wriggle ) to new standards.

Not going to talk about Perry Park because I basically bawled through his good bye.

Gosh what a drama.

Love your reflection of the drama as a whole and I feel the same as you do about the show, its story, its message, and its characters.

Loved this drama. Officially my number 1. ^.^ Gave me super happy feels and made me really think about important life concepts. So much LOVE and appreciation. *^_^*

Thanks for the recaps and your thoughts throughout this awesome drama.

I absolutely don't want to say good-bye, so, I'll say thank you, too, to Show. The writers, the music folks, the director, the wardrobe artists - I MEAN REALLY, could Segi have been a bigger lump of appeal than in his red coat and poofed hair?
What about Yo-na's stolen PJs? Just perfect.

PSJ, Mom, Dad, secretary - TA- they were all just right.

Most, I will never forget how JS made these character come to life out of words on a page, and HJE, who loved them as much as we did. Just so happy this drama made it to air with this team. Satisfied with the end since they managed to get so much in in such a short time.

I finished watching this drama last Sunday and I cried alot. Reading the recap made me cry again. And your words "...JS made these character come to life out of words on a page, and HJE, who loved them as much as we did." bring tears again. That's what makes me love RiJin even more, she obviously loves those personas as much as I do. What a perfect and lovely couple.

Agree with you that the whole team created this drama is just right. I actually wish we could see SeGi in his red coat plus that awesome hairdo one last time.

I really enjoy Kill Me Heal Me thoroughly! While there's always been flaws here and there, it doesn't hamper my love and my own enjoyment!
During these days after I finished the last ep, I always reminded of Yo Na the most. Although my favorite personality is actually Se Gi. I even joke with my sister mimicking Yo Na's voice and habit. Yo Na is the most unforgettable character for me..
And kudos to Ji Sung, other casts, writer, PD, staff, etc that bring life to this drama!!
In the beginning many people (including me) wrote off this drama because its ambitious storyline that boasts 7 personalities, but now dare I say 7 personalities is possible!!
Ji Sung needs to get many awards from this! KMHM Jjang!!

I’ve never cried so much in my life. That was one incredibly sad, incredibly uplifting ending. Nana’s farewell was yet more closure for Rijin, and I really appreciate that the show didn’t play down the fact that while Dohyun suffered more after the abuse, in the end it was Rijin that had to undergo the abuse and therefore needs just as much closure. Speaking to her past self (did anyone else notice just how brilliantly Ji Sung imitated the little girl’s voice?) is cathartic, and sets off a wonderful healing chain reaction. Not only is she healing Dohyun, but she’s healing herself.
Mr. X showed us just how Dohyun’s psyche works. Yona said that X wouldn’t appear if Rijin smiled. Rijin didn’t realize it then, but Yona did answer her question. That’s who X is, that’s who many of the personalities have been. Parts of Dohyun that wanted Rijin to be happy. With the loss of little Rijin, came Nana. With the loss of Rijin’s parents, came Mr. X. In order to stop splitting apart, he needs to truly heal. So we’ve a round of farewells to say. Ahn Yo Na. I honestly can’t think of a better farewell for her: time with a fellow kijibae, and kisses and selfies with a handsome oppa. She knew her time was up, when bribing Rijin, and snapping picture after picture with poor Ri On. Only on the inside does she finally break down. Looking back, those tears she shed upon Ri On pretending to go to the army were her own, though she’ll never admit to it. And I admire her leaving as cheekily as she came: bright, fun and devious (Rijin’s forehead!). I cried like mad when Yosub just left like that but that was always in his nature. Even meaning to commit suicide, he waited for Rijin for two minutes. That, more than anything showed that he wanted to be stopped, but had given up hope of there being anyone who would do so. That Rijin came and stopped him was a shock. Here, was someone who cared. Yosub is a realist and quite the pessismist. He knew he would be going soon and probably expected to leave first, as seen in his emotional good-bye to Rijin. This was it, and he knew it. There was no point in torturing himself with what could have been, or returning for final farewell. As seen in Yona wearing the headband, the other personalities share enough of Dohyun’s consciousness to know the presents were for them. There’s no doubt that Yosub saw his. Someone cared. That was enough. It was time to let Dohyun live hence Yosub’s last words, of gratitude and of acceptance. “Thank you, noona.”
Rijin really said it all on Dohyun’s father’s apology. She’s never truly going to be able to forgive him out of the kindness of her heart, but for Dohyun and Segi’s sake alone. When that happens is only a matter of time, but the first to know will be the man she loves. More painful was the reality that Segi would disappear once that forgiveness was tendered.

Truthfully, it’s painful for me to write this. Segi was the personality I loved the most and it was his farewell that I most feared. Even if all the others vanished, I wanted him to stay, because he was the most broken and fractured part of Dohyun having borne all that pain and guilt for 21 years. Born out of a need to do anything to protect the girl he loved, Shin Segi wanted nothing more than for that girl to choose him in turn, without question or hesitation. That’s why this good-bye broke my heart. Because Segi, who wanted to live, so badly, made his last stand, rushing in once more to save Rijin. He was aware of just what it meant, that he was the final personality left and that coming out now would mean he would never come out again, but even that was fine so long as she wouldn’t be hurt. I especially loved Rijin’s wording when she said that she’d only forgive Dohyun’s father on “this person’s behalf”. She didn’t mention Dohyun or Segi, but the entirety of who they both were. They’re one and the same. Though Segi took a while to realize it, there never was a choice for her to make, between Dohyun and him. It was always him and it was always Dohyun. Of all the various personalities, Segi was the only one that was a part of Dohyun, as opposed to a manifestation of someone else. That’s why the two will never be apart. That’s why Dohyun himself greeted him during the final amalgamation. Perry Park, Nana and X are forever gone. Yosub, and Yona were manifestations of Dohyun’s distress and depression. But Segi will never leave. He is Dohyun’s rage, anger, pain, his recklessness, deviousness and charm, his will, and his drive to protect Rijin. We’ve seen Rijin note just how similar to the two are on many occasions. Segi won’t die but he can never appear in his present incarnation again. Dohyun is the owner of this time and body now. So, this too is goodbye, because Shin Segi, the man himself can never truly walk the night and race highways again. Like an ice-cube dropped in water, there will be no telling where he begins and Dohyun ends. But he accepts it anyway, because that’s what Dohyun and Rijin need. And Rijin’s word is law to him. The kiss Rijin gives him is not out of pity. Because she did come to love this broken man who came after her each and every time, whether it was on a motorbike, giving her sexy winks, or in the Segimobile, or when Ri On brought her home, or when Dohyun was too weak to return to her. He would always, always go and stretch out his hand. In fact, he kissed her before Dohyun did, and she was certainly a willing participant. He’s always been nothing but genuine with her so the present she gives him is just as raw and real. Segi was wrong when he said that he’d never be able to have that which he wanted most.

Rijin gave him herself, that final moment he remained as Shin Segi, but more than that she gave him herself forever, for all those moments he would now live as Cha Dohyun (my heart and eyes bled with Ji Sung’s gorgeous OST playing) Dohyun makes sure that Segi is aware that this isn’t goodbye. “You’re me,” he says. “I’m you,” Shin Segi finishes. With that, he melds with him, and the final, largest and most vital piece in Dohyun’s puzzle is finally in place.
Loved the time-jump and the meta placement of KMHM within KMHM, oh Ri On, you’re so screwed once Rijin gets home. Writing that romance must have been a cathartic experience and it seems that he’s ready for the future…one without Ahn Yona in it. Hang in there Ri On-ah, I’m sure you’ll find some feisty violent girl soon enough! I find it extremely appropriate that Dohyun has done what his father did, and adopted the name Perry Park, living life freely. Yay for Director Ahn, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to be taking over those reins. If he survives Dohyun’s beer that is. HA! This show was always about Dohyun and Rijin, nothing mattered more than those two. That’s why I’m so grateful to have spent the bulk of these final episodes watching them blossom under the warmth of each other’s love and affection and take the steps necessary to ensure that their life together will be happy. That ending was everything I ever wanted and more. The couple rings are absolutely adorable, similar to engagement rings, box and all. I loved the warmth in the music. There’s a languor, quiet joy and companionship between the two as theirs hands entwine. As if they’ve faced fire and steel, and walked away from it, their bond all the stronger. Nothing can really touch these two now. Whatever troubles the future may bring, you can bet that they’ll be there, hands entwined, to face it. As Dohyun said, only we can turn the light on and dispel the darkness and fear within us. We don’t know just what lies in the briefcase in front of us. But that’s no reason not to open it. Who knows what lies in there? Perhaps it’s a stuffed bear, a top hat, a rabbit-ear headband, a pair of glasses, the world’s finest liquor, or perhaps it’s a random meeting with a confused man, who mistakes you as a mental patient, and suddenly transforms into an eyeliner-wearing, sexy-voiced, rather violent man-boy. But we all know how that one goes.
And they lived happily ever after.
The End.

I loved this show so much. The only thing that I disliked in the ending is that a year had passed and her parents were still calling him Perry and didn't treat them like a couple. I hoped that with the "truth shall set you free" theme they would tell her parents his identity and he would be welcomed into the family. Aside from that I loved every other minute of this show.

Exactly! It was kinda disappointing that they didn't reveal his real identity. Were they scared the Oh parents wouldn't accept CDH/the couple's relationship if they knew about his DID?

I doubt that. Because Ri Jin will exactly explain how young Cha goon is her saviour in that hell called Seungjin mansion, and considering how warm Oh parents are, they will probably embrace CDH like they embrace Ri Jin for the first time. Afterall, he's someone who is as hurt as Ri Jin because of that scary family, if not worse.

I hope that whoever suggested solving the KMHM casting crisis by asking JS and HJE to star got a big fat bonus. Or maybe it was Anthony's idea. In any case, it's hard for me to imagine enjoying this drama so much if different leads had been cast. Yeah, HJE was OTT screaming her head off early on, but I gather that the director wanted her to be OTT. I've gotta give props to HJE-- whether she was screaming, crying, being silly/strong/compassionate etc., she always gave it her all, and without a hint of self-consciousness. When Ri-jin was grieving over Se-gi's disappearance, I marveled (amidst my own tears) at HJE's ability to make that scene feel so real.

And as for uri Ji Sung, plenty has already been said about what a phenomenal job he did. I hope he's feeling very fulfilled as an actor. I revisited an article I'd read (https://blue1004.wordpress.com/2011/08/09/healing-camp-episode-3-guest-ji-sung/) about his appearance on Healing Camp in which he'd talked about how hard it'd been for him to become an actor. I'd forgotten that it was Song Ji-na (who wrote Healer, Sandglass, etc.) who had given him his first break after JS had begged her to create a new role for him. I thought that was pretty cool. He also talked about how furious his super strict father was when he found out JS was trying to become an actor. It's pretty great to see how he managed to make his dreams come true, and how he and LBY seem to be having the best year ever.

Saya and purplecow, thanks for making our dreams come true by gifting us with such wonderful recaps!

You can clearly see that it's the director who instructed her to act exactly like she did in the behind the scene footages. Actors are first-hand seen by the audience that's why they are always the first to be criticized before the writer or the director. But here in KMHM, most of us knows why she acts that way and we all love her for that :)

HJE was OTT at the beginning to show a personality that could handle all the crazy personalities that we were going to see. She had a brother who wanted her to fight back. So her very funny scenes with Se Gi and Yo Na make sense. I remember I didn't know what to think or expect from the first episode and she did find a great way to play Ri Jin besides just crazy screaming. I just ended up loving Ri Jin so much

Idk how to say it, but I just realized that MoonSun drama is about healing each other too, and the lead female had amnesia, but people thought she's already died.

And the lead male is such powerful/wealthy person, but actually he's sick inside. So he needs help from a doctor/shaman who was actually his first love.

I think, every writer has their characteristic.

I rather think Moon-Sun was getting the idea from Kill me heal me since as I knew the writer have half script in 2008 but she didn't knew ho to do it back then, no one want to try and she didn't knew who will portray, even she already work in the script.

then she wrote MoonSun and it accepted and become popular

after IOIL I think the producers finally think they have chance for Kill Me Heal Me and here's it is

in some psych mind
I think the script wait for JS, HJE and PSJ, back then 3 of them was kind of never met
JS doing PtB, HJE in high kick? PSJ wasn't debut/military???
but JS and HJE is reunited through Secret (2013)
and PSJ through tvn led witch romance

Kill me heal me took us on a rollercoaster of emotions. I don't know if I could ever get over it. I loved all the characters, laughed and cried my eyes out because of them. I really don't know how I feel exactly. It was a sweet and warm goodbye.

From Perry Park's to Shin Se Gi's goodbye, it all just fell into place and made sense to me.

Ji Sung could pull off all of the personalities perfectly. His looks, his eyes, facial expressions and his voice, everything was so different that it made me believe I was looking at a different person every time. He is just amazing!

I can't be more satisfied.

It's a (very) wild ride, like a roller-coaster. From laughing to crying only took minutes, from cringing to applauding only took minutes. It's perfectly imperfect. And when it finally ended, I didn't want to get off. Afterall, there's no drama like this, both in a good and bad way. I acknowledge the flaws, yet I was too deeply invested to the characters and stories like never before.
I can't praise Ji Sung more, I highly doubt there will be an actor that stands as high as him this year. But of course, the script itself is one in a million. Neither Ji Sung and the drama would be phenomenal if they didn't have each other. Praise you, whoever that sends the script to Ji Sung (and Jung Eum and Seo Joon)!
It's been a while since I enjoyed a drama this much. KMHM might be imperfect, but it surely is on top of my list of favorite dramas.

KMHM has been an awesome, entertaining ride. Loved all the characters especially the personalities. The ending was nice and while I never wished CDH's abusive dad woke up, but still the way that scene folded was satisfactory. Apart from the leads, Se Gi, Ri On and Yona will always me missed!

I'm just confused about Ri Jin's parents; do they still not know the truth about CDH? They addressed him as Perry.

he is prob too afraid to say his real name, and in the end it doesn´t matter cause Ri Jin would love him no matter what the name is. but I LOVE him living as Perry of all things, cause Perry is the name for freedom, independent of Seungjin group and living on his own terms. plus, that keeps Perry still "there" and his goodbye nearly finished me.... so I am glad he kept that name

Ahn Yona, that girl, I never thought there will be a day when you make me bawling like this. *sniff, sniff* The ending is just as perfect as what I've expected from this drama. Though I do find Segi's farewell a little too rushed. Since he was the most broken among all the other personalities. I expected him to take some more time before disappear. But aside from that, this is such a great drama and I truly enjoyed it. Team KMHM, Jjang!!
... and RiOn's epilog is just too hilarious. The name Ahn YoNa will definitely haunt him forever.

One of the best dramas.

One of the best endings.

One of the best heroes.

Cha Do Hyun splintered to the everyone safe within himself and ended up sacrificing his life on that mission.
He created Segi to be RiJin warrior angel.
He created NaNa-DoHyun to keep RiJin alive.
He created Mr X. to allay NaNa-DoHyun's fears
He created Cha Do Hyun to protect her name and keep her in the world.
He created Perry Park to keep the best part of his father alive.

The twins were the only alters dedicated to him alone. Yo-Sub held his desire to die and Yo-Na his joie de vivre and desire to live.

Ri-Jin was pretty awesome too.

Finally read the last recap.

This episode brought me tears of joy and sadness because my favourite alter is leaving us. I can rewatch her song 10x and laughed hysterically 10x when I saw Rion's "omg" face upon realising she is going to kiss him again. HAHA. Yona is a smart girl and I totally didn't see it coming when she totally know that Rion lied to her about his army departure. (LAUGH AGAIN). Rion is traumatized for life. LOL.

As for Segi, I think Writer-nim can always write Kill Me Heal Me Season 2 . I didn't forget the confession Do Hyun made to Segi if he could give all his time to him to stay with Rijin in this lifetime, he will give all his time to Segi to stay with Rijin in his next life. (cue for ep 10 & can i anticipate the possibility the next drama? :D)

There are just too many things I love in this drama. One thing I just want to highlight is Secretary Ahn. He is the first person who is genuinely treat Do Hyun as a person not a monster upon finding out his condition. I was overjoyed when I saw his promotion. He truly deserve everything he earned because he is not someone who only have the capabilities, he also have a warm heart. I think he could be the reason why Do Hyun isn't taken over by Segi for 11 years.

Thanks Saya's and Purplecow's awesome recaps and great analysis of each episode. Without them, I wouldn't be here commenting and joining the Chingus enjoying the ride.

It had been a really entertaining & emotional ride for 3 months. Kill Me Heal Me, has its own flaws, but it is one drama that reminds me good 'feeling' that I first watched a really good drama many many years ago.

Thank you Writer nim, PD-nim, Production Team and the Casts bringing such a great story to us. :D

just to lighten your mood, ease the sadness:

some clips, I would be grateful if someone would translate even roughly what they are sayin. at least the part where they are all thanking fans and there are BTS with Yo Na and Oh Ri On too.

Thanks ever so much Saya for recapping Kill Me, Heal Me.

In the very famous and lasting (immortal) words of Farmer Hoggett to Babe,"That'll do pig [KMHM], that'll do."

Remember, last Thursday, March 12, 2015, KMHM officially ended and aired its last episode. But for many of us, it is still etched upon our hearts and minds.

Seems like we're in a season of excellence with the recent #Winning string (streak) of Jjang Kdramas: Miseang, Punch, & Kill Me, Heal Me. Each one of these dramas was an awesome, poignant, and unforgettable masterpiece in its own right.

I Heard It Through The Grapevine is on track to be the next standard-bearer for the cause — out of the woodwork unlikely masterpiece in kdrama greatness.

Kill Me Heal Me buzzworthy indeed! All three (3) leads were fantastic with stellar chemistry; a skillfully crafted plot; beautiful OSTs; a satisfying drama till the end worth every minute.

Ji Sung seized upon playing a person with 7 personalities and never let go turning this into the role of a lifetime. Hwang Jung-Eum (as Oh Ri-Jin) & Park Seo-Joon (as Oh Ri-On) rocked as brother/sister in addition to all the times they broke into fits/spurts of English. In all due fairness to Hwang Jung-Eum; I think Ri-Jin’s moments of boisterousness/shrieking/hollering/screechy were more about being a defense mechanism for her expressing herself whenever she encountered or found herself in uncomfortable situations. Or else, it was intended as a counterbalance to the glorious 7 personalities. It’ll be hard to surpass Park Seo-Joon’s portrayal of Ri-On as 2015's best Big Brother/Oppa.

In Kdramas, customarily we’re introduced first to the characters during their childhood/teenage years. So how refreshing was it that we witnessed Do-Hyun & Ri-Jin’s story unfold and commence from the standpoint of them as adults which in turn led to a past childhood connection they shared through vivid flashbacks and scenes of incredible emotions and depth.

Parents Ji Soon-Young & Oh Dae-O: What a wonderful example of a loving family and committed parents.

Loved the message about Adoption: Every child deserves to grow up in a stable home with a loving family and parents that will give him or her the best chance in life at becoming a happy, well-adjusted, fulfilled, and productive adult.

I can honestly say that I probably would not have enjoyed KMHM as much as I did if not for the amazing and outstanding performances by lead actors Ji Sung, Hwang Jung-Eum, & Park Seo-Joon; the wonderful child actors Lee Do Hyun & Kim Amy; and the writing talents of Jin Soo-Wan, and directing by Kim Jin-Man. So hats off to all of you! I salute you!

What an unlikely masterpiece that set the bar high — very high — with the perfect mixture of a compelling story, a jaw-dropping plot, and notable characters. Time and time again we witnessed seemingly little inconsequential moments and details that when all was said and done ended up delivering big and powerful payoffs. Our patience was rewarded.

Hindsight is 20/20 because who knew or guessed KMHM would end up being an excellent example of the right way to balance elements of comedy, mystery, melodrama, and tragedy throughout. Funny, exciting, emotionally weighty and sad; adept at vestiges of sowing, reaping, and garnering events that ultimately leave us with feelings of affection and a harvest of healing.

KMHM certainly isn’t without flaws but it more than compensates for it. Certainly can’t accuse KMHM of being guilty of veering off the rails into a convoluted mess and WTF territory.As for the limited screen time allotted to the characters, backstory, and development of Han Chae-Yeon & Cha Ki-Joon, I’m inclined to go with...

KMHM certainly isn’t without flaws but it more than compensates for it. Certainly can’t accuse KMHM of being guilty of veering off the rails into a convoluted mess and WTF territory. As for the limited screen time allotted to the characters, backstory, and development of Han Chae-Yeon & Cha Ki-Joon, I’m inclined to go with what was posted in the KMHM: Episode 19 Recap Post #6 by
CZ March 14th, 2015 at 12:31 PM. Basically the viewpoint of Ki-Joon and Chae-Yeon as two (2) tertiary characters absorbed in their very own dramas — KJ the Chaebol in a Rom-Com and CY in a Melo.

Now, one of the few quibbles I did have with KMHM is the lack of realism when it came to Cha Joon-Pyo’s awakening and quick recovery physically after having lain motionless in a coma all those years.

Miss you much and R.I.P:
Shin Se-Gi = New Century
Perry Park = Ahjussi with a saturi/satoori accent, a love of boats, fishing, beer, & life.
Ahn Yo-Na = Queen Bee, Don’t you know it?
Ahn Yo Sub / Ahn Yoseb = "Joseph" the soul of a poet/artistic
Nana = Teddy bear/little Oh Ri-Jin
Cha Do-Hyun = Rin-Jin's birth name + ‎Lil' Joo Young
Mr. X = ‎Lil' Rin-Jin's ideal father figure/liberator

I posted some links to BTS videos that are awaiting moderations, so make sure to check them when they appear. It helped me a lot, I needed that because their short goodbye wasn´t enough.

what can I even say? if they had left out taht dead fish Chae Yeon, the drama would have been cleaner, they could have instead let the alters go to the company and mess up director Ki joons´plans. Se Gi in the company was hilarious and on point.

imagine Yo Na sitting in idol bands´laps when she is supposed to manage them, and Perry arranging a trot show with lots of explosions, and Yo Sub scoffing at everything and turning the idols into a classical orchestra to play Mahler instead.

hah.

look at me, calling Yo Na "she" without problem. What the hell did you do, Ji Sung? did the lip gloss actually turn you into a woman! there is no "Ji Sungs´ character Yo Na" for me, suddenly just "that girl / her". and how HJE cried at the last scene! she and "Yo Na" became real sisters and I was so sad.

but I´ll keep the good memories. and the soundtrack hypnotized me. now every time that song comes on I jump up whereever and yell "SHIN SE GI???"

And of course thank you to all those who worked hard to make KMHM what it is. The BEST!! Ji Sung, if you don't get that award, you have many of us who will fight to get you to have it!!!!
Se-Gi was probably the best personality for me so when it was his turn to say goodbye, wow! There was a TON of things in my eyes. But at least they will never be truly gone, but still deep in Cha Do Hyun's head. And they all will have a special place in our hearts. :)
But one things for certain Ri-On will NEVER escape YONA! Haha! :D
Again thanks to everyone for one memorable drama!!!

This is one show that ended better than it began, on a high note. And a warm note. It's a shame that the ratings couldn't be higher for the penultimate and last episode.

The sent off of each personality brought me to tears, that really shows how much I care about them though they only come out from time to time.

Ji Sung is really the man. Give him all the awards that he deserves!!

Though not perfect (I was wishing for more development from Chae Yoon and Ri Jin's parents knowing Do-hyun as Do-hyun and not Perry), it is still the show that touched my heart and I think I'll remember this for a very long time.

It's overrrr. *WAILS*

I don't think I've cried this much in any drama finale before. I cried when Perry Park left in the previous episode, and then I cried when Yo-na left, cried HARDER when I saw Yo-sub, and then started bawling again when Se-gi finally left. Ughhh, that fist bump!! That kiss!! That whole conversation between Do-hyun and Se-gi!! So heartbreaking, yet so heartwarming. Every personality's send-off was perfect.

I can't believe I've grown to love Kill Me Heal Me so much - it wasn't love from the first episode, and I don't think I was even fully invested until more than halfway through the drama - but now I'm so glad I decided to watch it, if only because it introduced me to Ji Sung's incredible acting. I can't imagine any other actor taking on his role - he's made Do-hyun, and every other personality, entirely his. It's amazing that no matter which personality he was, even when he ended up as a teenage girl or a seven year old child, his portrayals were so perfectly believable that he literally, in that moment, BECAME the character. He's just amazing. T__T

I still remember that I was kind of unsatisfied with Do-Hyun as character since he is so dry in like 4 episode, why he is like that as main lead and my love grow every episode . It's like I finally see it. He is change, that guy is lovable and have many charm.

Se-Gi is such a charmer and screen capture

but the things is, I think they give each personality background or something to care and understand even for a limited time, so I never think they need to leave since I care about them, but then I knew they need to.

can believe I am tearing at happy scene, not because sad but happy,,,,,

Thank you so much Saya for dedicating your time to writing these recaps that have always managed to capture the heart of this wonderful show.

KMHM wasn't love at first sight for me. It took a while to get used to but when I did fall for it, I fell hard and fast. Because though it had its fair share of flaws, it always managed to make us fall in love with it for what it truly was; imperfect like the rest of us. It managed to reduce us to wailing messes, induce mass hysteria, cackle like hyenas and left us in awe of the spectacle that unfolded before us.
For that, I thank you Show. You made loving you easy and letting you go even more painful.

I loved that Yona got to leave exactly the way she came in; Like a Boss! I don't think I'll ever miss a bitchy-sassy-oppa-obsessed-fan girl as much as I'll miss her.
Though I wish we couldve seen more of Jisung as Mr.X, I'm content with the way the alter was dealt with. But c'mon, that top hat and cape was fab! ^.^
Segi's farewell was...grief. Plain and simple. I think I'm still not past the first stage. Wednesdays without Segi. Will take time to get used to.

I don't think there will ever be a chaebol heir hero as wonderful as Cha Dohyun to grace our screens in a long time. I will miss him terribly. Along with the strong, steadfast and lovely partner he has in Oh Rijin. It was pure unadulterated bliss watching the two of you interact.
And Oh Rion! For being the best oppa a girl could wish for. Thank you Park seojoon!

Kudos to Jisung, HJE and the rest of the cast along with the writer and the production team for working hard to bring this tale into our hearts, despite the difficulties you had to go through.

KMHM : January 8, 2015, 10 pm. The time I fell for you. <3
