Beautiful Mind: Episode 10

Our favorite neurosurgeon and newbie detective are downright winsome in this episode as they team up to solve another medical mystery. Young-oh makes the first jump trying to bridge the distance, but Jin-sung does most of the handholding. Together they delve a little deeper to understand what drives people apart, and what keeps them together.

 

 
EPISODE 10 RECAP

In the past, a young girl describes her symptoms to a teenaged Young-oh, which include dizziness, breathlessness, and a racing heart. She then confesses her feelings to him. Young-oh perks up at the mention of her heart, and begins to pelt her with questions. First, he confirms that her heart is pounding because she likes him. And if so, how fast is it going? Oblivious, he asks if he can feel it once, which earns him a swift slap to the cheek.

He continues to muse over the exchange afterwards, specifically, the biological mechanisms of falling in love and how it is a purely hormonal process. He relates the pulse rate of those in love to the similar rate found during light exercise. He notes that the interplay of chemicals released during this process—norephedrine, dopamine, and oxytocin—roughly expire in three years. After reducing love to a purely electrochemical process, he grins a little and tells himself, “I’m fine. I’m really fine.”

At home, Jin-sung tosses and turns in her bed. Still perplexed by Young-oh’s sudden hug, she asks her younger brother for his advice, presenting it as a hypothetical scenario. She adds that right after the hug, the man said, “I can’t feel anything.” When pressed for why she’s asking, she pretends that it’s for a case.

They decide together that she actually should be pissed off, because basically the man told the woman he doesn’t find her attractive in the least, or else he’d definitely feel something. Her brother guesses that she is talking about Young-oh, and although she denies it wholeheartedly, he isn’t fooled.

As she walks out the door, she tries to convince herself that she’s totally cool with being hugged. In fact, she thinks maybe next time she’ll initiate the hug. She practices her technique by pantomiming the motion, then stops short at the sight of Young-oh waiting outside. It’s her turn to act weird as she pretends not to see him and begins walking back toward her house.

Young-oh trots after her, confused. She makes a big show of acting like she’s seeing him for the first time, greeting him a little too enthusiastically. When she asks what he’s doing here, he tells her he is keeping his promise to report their lottery winnings. At the mention of the tickets, her enthusiasm becomes genuine and she asks how much they’ve won. He takes her hand and doles out approximately two dollars and fifty cents.

He then asks her to explain something to him: A man and a woman have met more than ten times, the woman has handcuffed him and even jumped into the water to save his patient, but then ignores the man when she sees him waiting outside her house. What is he to make of such behavior? The woman isn’t blind or anything…

She turns the questioning back to him and asks why he’s doing this to her. Does he just like teasing people? “What am I to you?” she asks. He pauses for a moment, puzzled, then she explains a little bashfully that these are things the woman might say in response. They share a laugh. Still smiling he says, “This is why I need you. You’re like my Wi-Fi.”

Young-oh explains that her advice on the suicidal patient was extremely helpful. He asks for her continued assistance in decoding his patient’s behavior, going so far as to offer to travel anywhere to seek her out. He only asks that she not ignore him like she did today. She nods sheepishly, agreeing.

In his office, Young-oh examines the lottery ticket, which was actually a losing one. He had fabricated the win. He adds it to the growing collection of keepsakes in his drawer.

Elsewhere in the hospital, Assistant Manager Chae and Dr. Lee’s colleague from the past examine Young-oh’s old CT scans. The man wonders what kind of face Dr. Lee would make if he were to see his old co-worker again.

Meanwhile, a little boy comes to the hospital after fainting at school. As he’s being treated, he asks one of the doctors what it takes to get into medical school, since he plans on becoming a doctor himself. Charmed, the attending physician bumps fists with the boy, who then hunches over in pain from the slight touch, completely surprising the staff. They aren’t sure what to make of it.

His mother rushes into the emergency room in search of her son. She quickly tries to usher him out of the hospital, but the attending physician stops her, telling her that they haven’t finished his examination. His mother continues trying to brush him off, saying her son is just pretending to be sick because he’s stressed out about his upcoming exams.

At this point, Young-oh steps in. He looks over the boy, then coldly tells the mother that she might think she knows everything that is going on with her son, including the reasons for his symptoms, but that is a parent’s delusion. The mother stubbornly maintains her declaration and starts storming out with her son in tow. Suddenly, the boy collapses. Young-oh diagnoses him with a subdural hemorrhage/hematoma, or the collection of blood between layers of tissues surrounding the brain, often caused by severe blows to the head. Young-oh prepares for emergency surgery.

The mother tries to call the boy’s father, but stops mid-sentence and decides against it, pretending that all is well.

Right before surgery, Young-oh tries to confirm that her son fainted at school because he felt dizzy. A weird look crosses her face as her logic suddenly flips, and she says she has no idea, since she isn’t with him while he’s in school. Young-oh points out the hypocrisy of her words and says that they’ll know what is wrong with him once the surgery is done.

During surgery, one of the surgical aides comments on how dark the boy’s blood is. Young-oh explains that the boy’s head was badly bruised over a prolonged period of time. Should he have left the hospital, he would have certainly died. The aide then asks Young-oh why he shaved part of the boy’s head that wasn’t necessary for the surgery. Young-oh responds with, “People may lie, but the body cannot lie. If someone abused them, the traces must remain somewhere.” Sure enough, in the spot where he shaved, a large bruise was hiding.

Outside the regenerative cell research center, Director Kang and Assistant Manage Chae meet with a well-known news anchor named CHOI SANG-HYUK. Director Kang explains that they plan to offer their innovative treatment to those most in need, free of cost. Anchor Choi isn’t moved by their purported altruism, fully aware that many hospitals use the same tactic to garner free publicity.

Director Kang suggests continuing their discussion over dinner, but the anchor shoots him down immediately, citing work commitments. Later, Director Kang complains about Anchor Choi’s attitude, but Assistant Manager Chae tries to reason with him. It seems this anchor is well respected and trusted by the public primarily because of his high morals and scandal-free personal life. These are precisely the reasons they need his endorsement for their new research.

Speaking of the research, Suk-joo meets with potential patients for the new treatment, but rejects every single one. He visits Dr. Lee, who wonders if Suk-joo’s excessive fastidiousness is not because he is looking for the best candidates, but rather because he doesn’t actually believe the treatment will be successful.

Suk-joo counters that once the treatment begins, it will no longer be research, but a marketable product. And in order for their product to be successful, they must raise demand.

Assistant Manager Chae enters the room and Suk-joo excuses himself. Assistant Manager Chae praises Suk-joo for being smart and for knowing exactly who he is, unlike some doctors who delude themselves into thinking they are noble. He tells Dr. Lee that he may not be noble, but at least he’s honest about wanting money—which, in his view, makes him more decent than those who pretend to be noble.

Young-oh meets with the boy after surgery, who feigns sleep. Young-oh repeats his line about how the body cannot lie, even if people choose to, then asks the boy who is abusing him. When he denies it, Young-oh presses a tender spot on his arm and asks again. This time, the boy seems to consider it, but before he can say a word, his mother bursts into the room.

She pulls Young-oh outside to berate him for meeting with her son without a guardian present and threatens to file a complaint against him. He pushes back and tells her that victims of abuse often require privacy in order to disclose their situation to others. Outraged by his insinuation, she demands to know if he’s accusing her of beating her own child. Young-oh replies that he doesn’t care about her—he only cares about the well-being and protection of his patient and the success of his post-operative care. The mother says warningly that the one who’s most dangerous to her son is Young-oh.

He leaves the mother and encounters Min-jae waiting outside the patient’s room. She imagines the boy must be cute for Young-oh to take so much interest in him after completing the surgery, when he never has before. Young-oh merely replies that since he can’t feel emotions, he isn’t affected by cuteness. Then they begin to hear the mother loudly reprimanding her son, demanding to know “who he’s told.”

Min-jae looks at Young-oh smugly, and tells him to come to her if he wants to understand the effects of child abuse in the brain.

He has a suggestion of his own, and reminds her of his inability to control his impulses or violent nature. He invites her to try and imagine how much he’s restraining himself from doing something to her right now. He pats her lightly on the shoulder, leaving her visibly rattled.

Depleted by the exchange, he calls up Jin-sung and sweetly says, “I need Wi-Fi, please come see me.” They go out to eat, where Young-oh discusses his patient’s case with her.

She agrees that the child is being abused and is protecting his abuser. She compares a child’s love for their parent to a person’s first love. Even if the child is being abused, “The heart always betrays the mind.” She says parents are like a child’s first love, and they’re the first people they trust.

Forlorn, Young-oh asks if these are conclusions easily reached by normal people. When he was younger, he viewed people with normal emotions as aliens. He wondered how people transmitted their feelings to one another; was there a kind of antenna only he didn’t have, and thus a frequency he could never understand?

She tries to cheer him up, saying, “I hear that earthlings have Wi-Fi,” which they use to connect to one another. A tiny smile creeps onto his face.

She offers to go down to the hospital tomorrow with an officer who specializes in child abuse cases. In the meantime, she says, they should stop worrying about the boy and enjoy their meal. Her statement makes Young-oh pause and ask if he seems worried about the boy. She nods gleefully, and says he seems realllllly worried.

The next day, Jin-sung shows up as discussed, but when they go to the boy’s room, he isn’t there.

In the parking garage below, the mother drags her son, still dressed in the hospital gown, to the car. He complains of pain in his head and asks if they really have to leave. She snaps at him for causing such a fuss with his fake illness even after she and his father have done everything they can to provide a perfect life for him. Anxious, he begins biting his nails, which further enrages his mother. She violently yanks his arm to stop him before slamming him up against the car. In a strange turn of events, the mother suddenly urinates, then accuses him of peeing his pants. Enraged, she raises her arm to attack her son again.

Young-oh intervenes just in time to restrain her. With an intense glare, he warns her not to touch his patient. He releases her to check on the boy, but when she tries to go after him, she suddenly collapses to the floor.

Young-oh kneels down to check on the mother, when Anchor Choi suddenly runs over and demands to know what Young-oh did to his wife.

The mother is wheeled into the emergency room, but once Young-oh begins firing off commands, Anchor Choi interrupts him to request that another physician handle his wife’s care. Young-oh tries to walk away, but the news anchor refuses to be ignored and again accuses Young-oh of attacking his wife. Around them, a crowd begins to form.

Unconcerned by the audience, Young-oh explains to Anchor Choi that his wife has a brain tumor and a problem with her right frontal lobe. These are causing her frequent mood changes and acute anger, resulting in the abuse of their son.

Anchor Choi looks stunned by the revelation, apparently having known none of this.

A little later, Anchor Choi coincidentally overhears some of the hospital staff discussing Young-oh’s disorder. With the leverage he needs, he immediately goes to Director Kang to seek help minimizing the spread of his scandal. Director Kang, still resentful that the anchor blew him off for dinner the other day, pretends that there isn’t much he can do.

However, when Anchor Choi says what he knows, adding that there must be some security footage of Young-oh attacking the anchor’s wife in the parking garage, Director Kang starts paying attention. The anchor accuses the hospital of trying to cover up Young-oh’s actions by claiming that his wife abused their son, and vows to drag this hospital down with him if Director Kang refuses to act.

Pushed into a corner, Director Kang drops in to tell Young-oh to mind his own business. Incorruptible, Young-oh cites the doctor’s responsibility guidelines posted on the wall, which includes reporting child abuse to the police. Even so, Director Kang orders Young-oh to cease his actions or be terminated. Before he leaves, Director Kang tells Young-oh that Anchor Choi knows all about him being a psychopath.

Interestingly, when he’s alone, Young-oh smiles to himself.

Although Young-oh should technically be off the case, the young boy comes with Jin-sung to talk with Young-oh. She tells Young-oh that they are postponing the mother’s investigation until her condition stabilizes, then leaves the two alone to talk.

Young-oh guesses the reason the boy wants to become a doctor is so that he can cure his mother. He tells him a secret: “Sometimes illnesses make a person’s true self disappear,” like what is happening to his mother. The boy asks Young-oh to return his mom to the way she was before.

Young-oh asks why he put up with his mother’s abuse without saying anything—at the very least, he should have told his father. The boy replies, “It was bearable.” He was afraid that if his father found out, he would hate his mother, and then he would lose her and end up alone.

As Young-oh walks the boy back to his room, a handful of medical professionals speed down the halls pushing a gurney right into their path. Young-oh pulls the boy into his arms and whisks him out of harm’s way.

Min-jae discusses surgery details with the boy’s parents, and in a surprising vote of confidence, she recommends Young-oh as the best person for this operation. Since it is a very dangerous procedure, anyone with less skill will inevitably put the patient’s life in danger. Predictably, Anchor Choi is vehemently against using Young-oh and threatens to go to another hospital if there is absolutely no one else up to the task. Meanwhile, his wife doesn’t say a word.

When the couple is alone in the hall, Anchor Choi tells his wife never to admit to abusing their son. Even if it was because of a brain tumor, no matter the reason, she must never confess because she is his wife.

Young-oh meets with Anchor Choi and tells him directly that at first he suspected him of abusing his son. He assumed Anchor Choi carried out the perfect crime and left no evidence of abuse on his son’s body, but Young-oh explains that the culprit was actually his son. We flash to a scene of the boy singing through tears under a blanket while his mother relentlessly beats him, enduring it all in secret to keep his family together. Young-oh asks the news anchor where he was while all this was happening.

He tells Anchor Choi that his son will need to be treated for the trauma he endured during his abuse, or else he may become like Young-oh.

The anchor’s wife comes in and asks Young-oh to please proceed with the surgery. She intends to file for divorce after the procedure, but first her husband needs to sign the operation consent form. She points out that he said it himself: The problem isn’t that she was sick, or that she hurt their son, but because she is his wife. She’s decided to admit to the abuse and receive treatment because she’s determined to return to being a good mother. With a shaky voice, she requests that Young-oh also remove the memories of abusing her son along with her tumor.

After Young-oh finishes another successful procedure, Dr. Lee swings by to ask if he really did the surgery against Director Kang’s orders. Young-oh confirms it, and in another surprising turn, Dr. Lee pats him on the back and says he did a good job. Oh wow.

He reaffirms that their responsibility to the patients must always be first and foremost. Touched, Young-oh attributes his success in part to his father, and admits that doctors need to empathize with their patients. His empathy for the young boy and his family enabled him to do the surgery, not his surgical skills.

Astonished, Dr. Lee asks with interest if Young-oh really was able to empathize with the child. On the verge of tears, Young-oh says he could relate because the boy’s situation reminded him of his own childhood. But at that comparison, Dr. Lee’s face falls.

The boy’s family is all smiles after the mother’s successful surgery; Anchor Choi even offers to make time to drink with Young-oh. Young-oh swiftly shuts down the offer but accepts the gratitude behind the gesture.

Young-oh feigns disinterest as they leave, but once they are gone, he watches the door. When the young boy comes back, Young-oh spins around and acts like he totally wasn’t waiting for him. The boy promises not to forget Young-oh, and to become a great doctor like him.

But Young-oh tells the boy not to remember him or the time they spent together. Instead, he should live happily as if this never happened. He then sends the boy on his way.

Young-oh calls up Jin-sung requesting more Wi-Fi, and they walk along the beach while he fills her in. He’s absolutely buzzing as he tells her how he was able to understand what the boy was thinking about without reading his body signals or saying anything. She’s distracted as he talks, and when he asks if she’s listening, she pulls him out of the way of an incoming baseball, and they embrace. She pulls away awkwardly, and says without verifying that he felt nothing, concurring that she too felt nothing. Nothing to see here.

He grabs her by the wrist and asks, “What is this feeling?” He tells her that even if it is impossible, he wants to try it once: love.

She bursts with excitement, thinking he means he is beginning to love his patients. But he disagrees, and clarifies that he’s talking about loving her.

 
COMMENTS

In light of the recent episode cutdown, this episode is a bit bittersweet. I hope the unfairness of this decision still allows for these characters to live out their intended storylines while maintaining the spirit of the story. I think it might help to cut back on the patient of the episode stuff because it was pretty heavy-handed in this episode, but that’s not the say those aren’t important or immensely enjoyable. On the contrary, in other shows I’ve seen, these types of B-plot lines often serve as filler and force the stories of the main characters to take a back seat for a bit, but the execution here is always carefully crafted, purposeful, and filled with lots of heart-tugging moments.

I like how the writer is handling the way Young-oh is slowly questioning his deeply held beliefs about emotions. Based on the flashback, the teenaged Young-oh seemed almost smug about not being, in his view, restrained by the biological processes involved in falling in love. If we think back to the way Young-oh acted in the first couple of episodes, it brings into focus this idea that the concept of giving and receiving emotions is so beyond his understanding he’s convinced himself that he has transcended the need for them. But now, we see that it was some kind of overcompensation on his part in order not to feel inadequate. Thus, when his world came crashing down on him, it forced him to question all he had believed. This explains the childlike way Young-oh discusses his emotional issues.

On that note, man, Jang Hyuk is really selling this character. I didn’t expect him to disappear into the role of Young-oh so much, especially since he has a bunch of other notable roles under his belt, but he really draws me in and brings so much to this character. Those big emotional moments are great, but right now for me, it’s all about those little moments and small acting choices that make me buy into Young-oh’s emotional journey. The acting across the board is solid, and Park So-dam brings a naturalness to her role, so it’s fun to watch them together. I think this confession was well-timed—not too soon, and not painstakingly late. More importantly, it wasn’t overly emotional, almost matter-of-fact. Weirdly, it kind of helps that these actors don’t really match age-wise, because there is a palpable awkwardness between the two characters which makes them a kind of an odd pair. But since they are bonding over much deeper things than appearance or age, it makes those moments more impactful, because isn’t that so true to real life? Aren’t some of the strongest bonds we make in the world often with those we least expect?

Young-oh and Jin-sung’s relationship makes me so happy, but Young-oh’s relationship with his father messes me up inside. When Dr. Lee patted Young-oh on the shoulder and told him good job, Young-oh was so startled and confused by the gesture it made me ecstatic, but it also crushed my heart a little. There’s just a tapestry of emotions there that make each of their exchanges rife with tension and tragedy, especially when we see the flashbacks. Both men are so broken inside, and need the love they couldn’t provide each other to heal their wounds. There’s been some questionable behavior on both ends, but I’ve been rooting for these two to start communicating, and in this episode, it starts to pay off even if it was ultimately upended. That said, it makes me nervous that this means something bad might happen to Dr. Lee soon, by way of Assistant Murderer Chae. I won’t be super thrilled to see this transform into a revenge drama, but this writer is good at keeping things new and interesting, so who knows.

Speaking of another character showing some depth: Min-jae. I was pleasantly surprised to see her go to bat for Young-oh with the news anchor. I like that she doesn’t let her personal vendetta cloud her judgment regarding Young-oh’s abilities. But I’ll be really grossed out if she tries to win Young-oh back after everything she’s done, so I’m really hoping that’s not the direction we’re going with this character.

A couple of episodes ago, Young-oh implied that he and Director Kang looked like brothers. It made me hold my breath for some kind of birth secret reveal. That would be one way to mess with the status quo a little. Hopefully, it doesn’t become some kind of Battle of the Bastards, but I could see why the writer might choose to do this. I thought it was kind of funny to see Director Kang tell the anchor that basically, no one knows what to do with him, and that he’s resigned himself to that. He can’t seem to get rid of Young-oh no matter how much he tries, and after this drama, neither can the rest of us.

Thanks for the recap! I can't believe they cut the episode count, I love this show. I was wrong about Young-oh's father, and I'm glad he's another deeply layered character. Can't wait for next week!

P.S: these two are such dorks together, I can't wait to see how the relationship progresses. Hopefully the writer can use their endearing awkwardness to bring them closer together. I especially love how Young-oh, who is so often the cool character, has his stoicism totally undermined by Jin-sung's earnestness. She's just personable enough to be totally unaffected by his superiority complex and I love it!

Muahahaha, the Wi-Fi thing is gold. I love how he consistently comes up with these things to get close to her, and she just responds good-naturedly. These two are so, so adorable together. I love how childlike Young-oh can get when he's trying to understand something and has Jin-sung explain to him, and the beautiful thing is she just sorts it out for him as though it was the most natural thing for her to do.

I want Young-oh and Dad to really sort things out. Perhaps Dad should meet Jin-sung and get a better handle on things.

So sad about the episode cut, I hope the rest of the story won't be too badly affected because there seems to be quite a bit of material left to cover.

Thank you for the recap!!!!Murasakimi, Your Wonderful words described my thoughts:"On that note, man, Jang Hyuk is really selling this character. I didn’t expect him to disappear into the role of Young-oh so much, especially since he has a bunch of other notable roles under his belt, but he really draws me in and brings so much to this character." I have read the book "Beautiful Mind" and saw the movie many times which I enjoyed. Though this drama has little to do with the book or movie, Jang Hyuk draws me in as well with his phenomenal acting skills. I like his counterpart as well, Park So-Dam. There was a suggestion on Dramabeans to watch this. I am so glad I started watching, so worth it!!!

Agreed! Jang Hyuk is phenomenal in this role and I am mesmerized by his big brown eyes. He looked so sexy in his role of protector: when he stopped the mother from striking her son, when he pulled the little boy over and prevented him from being run over in the hospital, when he sat down at lunch with JS and worried about the boy, and when he reached out to pat the boy, but couldn't quite bring himself to touch him. I confess he stole my heart completely in this episode.

Jinsung, you better take our beautiful 205.
Though it's pretty clear that she's equally aware/smitten given by how much leeway she gives him. Wifi, lunch, calling.
And didn't he swerve in the path of an oncoming car for her earlier on?
And yet he thinks he can't feel anything? It seems more like a mental blockade in conjunction with a frontal lobe injury.
Because this man feels and sees things better than most humans do.

Yeah, I remembered how he swerved to block an oncoming car. He's quite the protector, isn't he? Father Lee did a number on his son, convincing him that he feels no emotions, so that even when he does feel something, he discards it, thinking himself incapable of emotions. What a fallacy! Thankfully, he has JS to show him that he can truly feel and is fully capable of being human.

Elder doctor Lee seems genuinely happy when he thought YO could empathise with his patient.. now I think he may not be that bad after all. Can't wait to see how that wheelchair-former-colleague going to play a part in unveiling their past.

My thought exactly. I don't think dr Lee has bad feelings towards Young Oh so I really hope they could mend their relationship. And maybe Jin Sung or/and the guy in the wheelchair could help

Elder Lee DID seem genuinely happy but this just confused me more about what his 'real' character is, deep down (one of the many things I love about this show; every character has endless layers to them and each layer could stand-alone by itself). When Young-Oh coldly said he could only empathise with the child because his experience wasn't foreign to him, for me the look he gave Elder Lee was accusing and painful...and didn't Elder Lee look a little guilty? My point being the process in moulding Young-Oh into a human being that can understand people's emotions couldn't have been seemless. Maybe Elder Lee punished Young-Oh whenever he got it wrong- he does seem like a scary perfectionist.
The Frankinstein comparison in this respect is spot on- imagine Elder Lee was like Jin Sung, I bet Young-Oh could've conquered most of the cold cynicism we see in him. But instead Elder Lee focused on cold statistics and divorced Young-Oh from the meaning of emotion altogether. Hence I feel he 'created' the cold calculating Young-Oh. Hopefully in the next eps we'll see how much of the blame lies with him.
Otherwise, I can't get enough of my Wifi Couple!!

I don't think of Dr Lee as a complete horrible father to YO and I really do feel that he loves him. Due to Jang Hyuk's awesome portrayal of YO we forget that he was labelled from the time of the op as being a "psychopath".

Dr Lee adopted YO who he never knew he prior to his operation while having to deal with the guilt of losing his own son, guilt of condemning YO to the life of a psychopath and the harsh criticism of malpractice from his colleagues.
And it looked like to me that he tried his best to give YO the tools to overcome his deficiencies and lead a normal life.

But he isn't naive and would have noticed that YO was only using the skills he was taught and just compensating, and not cured. So I don't blame him for his fierce controlling side- his greatest fear is that YO will truly become a monster.

It's easy to criticize and forget that Dr Lee had to bring up and love a child who has no ability to understand and feel emotions, and one who could potentially be a danger to society. And yet still he adopted him, and introduced him to the world as his son. I don't know if any amount of guilt in the world would make me adopt a child who was labeled as "potential psychopath".

Sorry for the ramble, but yeah I do feel that Dr Lee does love YO. To me he looked genuinely hopeful and happy that YO could feel empathy. And then when he got cut down by YO after that, he looked gutted. I felt for him, because I think he never genuinely wanted to harm YO, but he was fierce and controlling because it was what he thought was best at the time.

Agreed. Still holding out hope for Dad and Young-oh to mend things. I also think back then, medical science was not advanced enough for Dad to know how to deal with a child with such issues, and surely there was a lot of trial and error. No parent gets it right all the time, and it's unfortunate Young-oh got hurt in the process. Somehow I don't think he hates Dad, but he definitely does want to let Dad know that it wasn't all peachy all this while.

I wondered a few things about that remark from Young Oh about knowing how the boy felt.

I think he was eight when he was operated on and then adopted. Could he have been talking about the time before he was adopted? Orphan 205? At the orphanage, or with absuive parents before the orphanage? I know Dr. Lee reacted with dismay, but he doesn't seem the type of man to have been cruel for the sake of it, and we saw no evidence in the flashbacks.

Young Oh is actually an extremely high-functioning sociopath, if he is indeed a sociopath, and that is due to his father's training. So I need a bit more proof that he was actively abused before I take Young Oh's statement at face value. I think there must be more to it.

My interpretation is that Young-oh is not talking about physical abuse, but the sense of isolation and having to keep up pretences that he's fine or he'd lose Dad. He's battled with the disorder since he was eight, knowing he's different but unable to successfully blend in like how Dad wanted. Knowing how Dad really feels about him has also affected him, but he's overcompensating by being brilliant and wanting Dad to notice him on his own merit. He's convinced himself all these years that he's okay without these pesky emotions... until Jin-sung showed up.

I don't rule out that Young-oh had abusive parents prior to being dumped at the orphanage, but my gut feeling is that he's finally letting Dad know how he feels after bottling it up for years - just like how he had encouraged the boy to confide in someone about the abuse.

0

Me too. I think Young Oh is referring to his biological parents when he talks about the abuse. Afterall, I do think Dr. Lee is a good guy. He performed the difficult surgery on Young Oh, only wanting to save his life, not for any personal gain. His wife left him because of this misunderstanding, and still, he took up the responsiblity of raising Young Oh on his own, and educating him to be functional person in society. Of course parents should give love and warmth to their children, but consider that Dr. Lee suffers from the abandonment from his wife and has to grief the loss of his son all on his own, I think I can forgive him for not showing more love and warmth.

OH MY GOD THIS EPISODE IS JUST MARVELOUS AND GIGGLY AND TINGLY!

I love the part Young-Oh called Jin-Sung "his wi-fi" hihihihihi it made me GIGGLY inside. It is like when he is down or stressed-out or something he calls Jin-Sung instantly and says "I need wi-fi. Where are you?" to get better insights about life/emotions or just to GTE ENERGY by seeing her! (OK OK the last one was a fantasy of mine for this couple)

I am also loving the improvement between Dr. Lee (Young-Oh's dad) and Young-Oh himself although this time it is because the kid's experience is kinda similar to his own childhood (the way his original parents kinda abandoned him to the orphanage due to his illness and many more i guess)

Suk-Joo? i am just hoping he redeem himself at the end of the tunnel...he is like looking to rush things about the stem-cell treatment ... and somehow the RIGHTEOUS & HONORABLE Suk-Joo we know that promised to be that (righteous and honorable) has faded.

Min-Jae? i wonder why she kinda recommended Young-Oh to be the surgeon for the News Anchor's Wife... when in the past episodes she used Young-Oh as a ladder to be promoted.... is she planning something fishy to gain for this like tell Young-Oh "I recommended you to be the surgeon for that News Anchors Wife"

Dr. Chae & the colleague of Dr. Lee Gun-Myung = i wonder what is really their sinister plan for the Father and son (Dr. lee and Young-Oh)

I guess i just want the last 4 episodes to be SMOOTH, NO MESS, and hoping they really DO IT PROPERLY.
(hmmm anyone remember the MESSY cheese in the trap? oh pls not that way writer-nim and staff)
Writer-nim & Staff YOU HAVE MY 999999999% since i love the whole script you made ever since the 1st episode

+ A SUPER HAPPY ENDING FOR THE WIFI COUPLE!
(like Young-Oh marrying Jin-Sung? OK that's my fantasy again)

sorry for the long comment XD

KMJ - I think the reason why she recommended YO to be the surgeon is because now she is having second thoughts about him. She is clearly jealous when she saw him talking to JS and she is now trying to get back into his good books. Too bad YO isnt buying her crap.

And I dont think the wifi couple have enough time to get married within the next 4 episodes. My guess is they will have a touching open ending.

A lot of dramas flag around the halfway mark but not this one, it just goes from strength to strength. The last 3 episodes have been just stellar. This journey that LYO is on is so wonderfully written and portrayed.

The even numbered episodes especially have just taken my breath away with their layers and the emotional punch that each patient-of-the-week leaves behind.

Unlike many who have commented, I really liked the first four episodes. All the misdirection about LYO's motives were very cleverly done. I think they were very necessary because what they did was set the show up with conventional assumptions about ASPD sufferers and then set about to slowly dismantle them one at a time. Yes, at the time I thought the female lead was the weak link but she's come good, moving along on her own journey and has become something of a beacon "WiFi" for our male lead.

This show has it all -- a great storyline, grounded performances, issues to stimulate thinking and plenty of heart.

I'm kinda dreading the possible consequences of the old colleague coming back into Dr. Lee and YO's lives. I don't want to see too much angst going on or YO being hurt again. (The actor playing the colleague sure plays a lot of bad characters btw.)

I understand that KBS may have some real conflicts in their schedule. They probably don't want to push back Moonlight and Clouds because that show needs to get established before Scarlet Heart starts and takes away some of their viewers but really can't they show Ep 15 and 16 of Beautiful Mind at a different time or perhaps back to back or later at night or something. There must be a better solution than just cutting them off! I want them to realize that they have gotten the love and attention for this show around the world because it is a quality show. They need to acknowledge their world wide viewership needs along with domestic responsibilities.
Besides, what if we all promise to buy some of the PPL products? Won't that make them happy. Now what was that Nivea stuff that fell out of Min Jae's bag?

Thank you for the recap and great insights! I loved the ending, I guess if it was to end here I would be happy. Of course I want more! But this was such a satisfactory episode. For having a "disability" YO is amazing with his patients. He is effective and can get through to them. And makes an impact in their life. I like the simplicity of YO and JS 's relationship. I need WIFI. Ok, here I am. So simple and honest. And innocent, no games...well, except when she pretended not to see him...but that was more embarrassment and surprise on her part. I like that YO really knows how to express himself. He may not be able to "feel" but he can really communicate! And communication is such a big part of any relationship.

I am sad they are cutting this show short, but hope we can still have a satisfactory ending. But at this point I will take anything...just give me more YO and JS. I will forgive the writer/director/BM crew and staff if there are loose ends or unfinished storylines...but just give us a happy ending for YO! And JS!

I kept reading on another thread that BM has bad writing and editing. I was wondering what I'd missed cos I absolutely love this drama right from the beginning.

I watched it first for Jung Hyuk and was blown away once again by his impeccable acting. I'm loving PSD. Was skeptical about the pairing but they proved me wrong. Love, no, super love the wifi analogy. Too cute!

Most of all I enjoy how the drama bares out raw and weak human emotions through YO's rationality. The ironies were brilliantly portrayed. !

Oh I also like how the back stories are established at the beginning of each episode. I like that treatment better than the way it was done in Healer.

I wish ratings are higher and the drama didn't have to be cut.

Weirdly, it kind of helps that these actors don’t really match age-wise, because there is a palpable awkwardness between the two characters which makes them a kind of an odd pair. But since they are bonding over much deeper things than appearance or age, it makes those moments more impactful, because isn’t that so true to real life? Aren’t some of the strongest bonds we make in the world often with those we least expect?

Someone started the campaign and I really want to help him/her to complete it. I want KBS to change their mind. This is one of the most beautiful dramas I have ever seen in my life. It'd be so crazy if it happens.
Thank you guys so much.
