Healer: Episode 13

Big movements ahead! As fun as it was to watch Bong-sookie being jealous of himself, it’s time for life to step it up and throw bigger frustrations in his path, which are equal parts entertaining and angst-inducing. Plus, with the outing of some truths come new unanswered questions, throwing our characters off-balance as they try to figure out how to juggle what they want to know with what they can stand to know.

EPISODE 13 RECAP

Backing up a few moments, we rejoin Jung-hoo’s mother as she is approached by Secretary Oh at the restaurant. She lies that she’s been out of contact with her son for a decade, and says she’s here to meet a friend. Secretary Oh offers to wait with her, and when Mom nervously excuses herself to visit the restroom, he swipes her cell phone.

Aha, so Mom’s not in danger after all, and she slips out the back. But Jung-hoo doesn’t know that, since her phone is tracked to Secretary Oh’s car, and he charges into the trap willingly. He fights the SS thugs in the parking garage until he’s hit with a tranq dart, then goes on the run, making it up the stairs to the roof.

That’s where he gets shoved aside, his Healer trappings stripped from him in a flash: It’s Teacher, and he dons Jung-hoo’s cap, glasses, and bloodied jacket, even cutting his arm to make the impersonation credible.

So when Yo-Yo and his posse order Healer to show himself, Teacher meets their incredulous faces with a sheepish grin. He says, “Whoops, I’ve been caught.”

Min-ja calls Young-shin and asks her to search the premises for Bong-soo, who is likely injured. Young-shin scours the area and heads down to the parking garage just in time to see the SS gang screeching out.

Young-shin overhears Detective Yoon reporting over the phone that somebody’s been caught, then spots the drops of blood on the floor. So when Min-ja calls back, she tells her frantically that Bong-soo must have been taken away by the goons.

But Ajumma tells her firmly that Bong-soo isn’t moving, so he’s hidden somewhere on the premises. Young-shin asks suspiciously how Min-ja knows, but time is of the essence and Ajumma entreats her to hurry. So Young-shin continues the search, and when she recalls Bong-soo saying he likes high places, she heads upward.

She makes it to the rooftop, where traces of blood lead her to Jung-hoo, slumped in a corner. She hurries to cradle him in her lap, covering him in her coat. In tears, she calls emergency services for help, begging them to hurry.

Jung-hoo is taken to the emergency room, where the doctors are more concerned with his unconsciousness than his bleeding, wondering if he took drugs. While he’s treated, Young-shin calls ajumma’s number, only to get a recording that it doesn’t exist.

Sitting at his bedside, Young-shin asks Jung-hoo to wake up, since she’s bursting with questions she wants to ask. Jokingly, she hovers in front of his face and sing-songs, “Bong-sook-ah, wake up~”

His eyes start to flutter open, and she sits up excitedly. He sees her blurrily and murmurs her name, holding his hand out to her. She takes it, and immediately he appears to sink back into sleep, although his hand keeps a tight grip on hers—and once again she’s reminded of her handhold with the Healer.

Last time she shook away the thought, but today’s circumstances have her brain whirling differently… and she thinks of the little details that now fall into place… like Healer asking how many pills she took, and Bong-soo handing her those pills.

She drops his hand in shock and rears back, seeing him through new eyes. She runs to his car and starts searching for clues, and comes upon a little case. Inside, she finds a tiny folded paper star—it’s the star she made while chatting on the phone with Bong-soo, sighing about the Healer not coming to her. Jung-hoo, you hopeless romantic.

She recalls his confession on the rooftop, when he’d told her he could live “in the appearance you want, for a long time, being very careful, next to you.” It sounds different in the context of knowing, doesn’t it?

When she returns to the hospital, Jung-hoo’s awake and changing into clothing brought by Dae-yong, who takes the first opportunity to excuse herself from this awkward scenario. Jung-hoo freezes at the sight of Young-shin, knowing he’ll have to make a convincing explanation, and also that he doesn’t have one.

So Jung-hoo says lamely that he took some sleeping pills that kicked in late. His arm injury, then, “is because I fell asleep… and… tripped.” It’s super unconvincing, and they both know it.

Young-shin asks how Dae-yong knew he’d be here. He doesn’t have an answer, and after a moment Young-shin offers him the excuse, saying that she got a call from someone who might be his mother, and that she was so preoccupied she forgot to call back. His mother must’ve searched all the hospitals in the area.

Jung-hoo asks if this gave her a scare, and apologizes when she says it did.

It certainly feels like they both know that they’re lying to each other, playacting this scene because they don’t know how else to handle it. As he starts to leave, she stops him to ask that he’ll be back in the office tomorrow, like she’s scared he won’t be. He signals yes.

She holds it together until he leaves, and then her tears spill over.

In the car ride, Jung-hoo hears from Min-ja that his mother is safe at home. That’s a relief, but he’s upset that Teacher got taken in. A sudden thought makes him check that the paper star is still in its case, and he’s relieved to find it there.

Jung-hoo ignores ajumma’s directive to rest and orders the car to Moon-shik’s home. The bastard messed with his mother and Young-shin: “So I have to make sure he can’t.” Ajumma asks if he means to give him a beating like he did to Hwang, but Jung-hoo growls, “I’ll kill him.”

Ajumma and Dae-yong both refuse to take him there, so Jung-hoo forces Dae-yong out of the car. She’s pretty tough and fights back, but he gets the upper hand and is ready to charge after the baddie.

It’s a good thing Dae-yong isn’t afraid to challenge him, and she has the keys. She shoves the phone in his face so Min-ja can yell some sense into him, about how he can go ahead and kill whomever he likes—but does that mean he’s ready to give up ever seeing Young-shin again? They need to find out why Young-shin was targeted, and don’t forget that Young-shin’s mother lives in that house.

Frustrated, Jung-hoo beats the steering wheel. But at least he’s been stopped.

At home, Young-shin’s strange behavior has her father and ajusshi worried. She stares vacantly for a while, and then the tears have them really alarmed.

“Dad,” she says brokenly, “that jerk deceived me all this time. Everything single thing he said in front of me was a lie. And I didn’t know and told him everything.” But she couldn’t confront him, “Because if I told him I knew, he might just leave. Because I might not see him again, I couldn’t say anything. And I can’t not see him again—I can’t handle that.”

Dad doesn’t press for an explanation, but he and ajusshi are both curious about the source of her heartbreak. Ajusshi knows she has two crushes, but doesn’t think this is about either one. Instead, his mind fixes on Bong-soo—Young-shin doesn’t confide her feelings even to them, “but she does to that dummy.” So he’s the one.

Dad brings her a warm drink later, and Young-shin asks why he chose her, pointing out, “I’m difficult to love.” There were lots of more lovable kids at the orphanage, but she was a difficult child.

Dad laughs as he recounts her difficult traits, but says he didn’t take her: “I just waited, and you came.” He explains sitting there quietly until she took his hand first, and so he brought her home. He says he was prepared to wait longer, but she came to him faster than he thought, reminding her that she’s not very stubborn.

She leans her head against Dad’s shoulder and assures him that she’s very nearly done crying.

Watching the CCTV feed, Min-ja sees Moon-shik and his guards arriving at SS headquarters… and then moments later, a couple more cars pull up. She chuckles upon recognizing Detective Yoon and reaches for a cell phone…

Moon-shik is ushered inside to confront the Healer, who has been insisting he’s a good old friend. Moon-shik confirms this and asks for privacy, extending a hand that Teacher cheerfully rejects. He sticks to the explanation that he’s been the Healer all along, laughing that it was quite fun taking Moon-shik’s money. Then he asks pointedly, “Is Myung-hee still sleeping? How many hours does she sleep a day?” What an ominous thing to say.

That sends us into a flashback to the hospital in the aftermath of Myung-hee’s accident. Teacher arrives out of the blue, a few months out of prison. Moon-shik greets him warmly, but Teacher’s full of hostility and says openly that Moon-shik’s actions are suspect. He outlines the odd sequence of events: Three bears go out “hunting” for a story and two die. The survivor quits his junkyard and suddenly gains a high position at a newspaper. Moon-shik asks his friend to hear him out, but Teacher’s not having it.

In the present, Moon-shik explains that Jung-hoo came asking about his father, and that kids don’t know “what sacrifices we made” to build up their world. Teacher laughs in his face, but Moon-shik warns, “I will not tolerate the destroying of the peace we’ve preserved in this world. We call those people outlaws. Why do you live as an outlaw?” Teacher makes a claw gesture and retorts, “Because I’m a bear.”

Moon-shik asks if Teacher has teamed up with Moon-ho to dig up the past. Teacher replies that two papa bears have died, leaving behind two mama bears and two bear cubs: “There have to be three bears for the song to work.” Then he sings the childhood ditty about a family of three bears, with Mama, Papa, and Baby.

Moon-shik warns that he’s very angry, and not to make him angrier. Teacher asks, “Were Gil-han and Joon-seok the last people you killed? There are more, aren’t there? But don’t think about messing with the two bear cubs. I’m going to protect them. Because I’m Papa Bear’s friend.”

Detective Yoon and his partners are surprised when patrol cars join them in front of the building. Hearing that they received a report that a kidnapping victim is inside, Detective Yoon is thrilled at the excuse to charge in.

Moon-shik is ushered out the back exit to avoid being seen, and Teacher sings the Three Bears song at his departing back. Moments later, the detectives arrive.

Jung-hoo’s mother is secretly photographed as she meets Jung-hoo in front of her apartment. He’s aware that they’re being watched and tells his mother quietly of the situation. He asks her to act like she’s seeing him for the first time in ten years, and she answers that it’ll be easy to act happy to see him.

They relocate to a cafe, and he apologizes for never giving her his number and only calling when he wanted to see her. But he won’t be able to do that for the time being, he says, to keep Mom safe. She doesn’t protest or ask questions, and they both notice when their stalker enters the cafe and sits nearby. He sets out his cell phone casually, recording their conversation.

So when Jung-hoo’s voice gets hard and he says that today is the last time he’ll be seeing his mother, she goes along with it. He tells her to be happy in her new life and forget him, and that she did him a favor in abandoning him so he could find his own path.

Even though the words are for show, Mom still gets emotional as she apologizes. Jung-hoo issues a cold goodbye, saying that he’ll wrap up his business here and never come back to Korea, but mouths at her not to cry. Then after he leaves, Mom bursts into heaving sobs.

Flashback. Mom watches her (other) son playing on a playground, shocked when a young Jung-hoo arrives and declares, “Found you.” He eyes her with bitterness but she’s only concerned for his health and tries to give him her coat, which he shoves away. Mom falls to her knees sobbing, and then his little half-brother charges up to him and bites his leg, telling him not to make his mother cry.

Only now does he know that Mom has a new family, and that hurts. Jung-hoo says accusingly, “Why can you live with him, but not with me?” Mom just sobs, “I’m sorry,” and Jung-hoo yells at her not to cry, because then he can’t say anything.

As he leaves, a man chases after him to say that it was all his fault, and that he begged Mom to marry him, and that Mom always speaks of Jung-hoo while crying. Jung-hoo looks back to see his mother watching and asks if cries every day. The husband admits that Mom cries easily, and Jung-hoo tells him to make sure she doesn’t anymore.

He knows that the coat the man is carrying is for him, so he just says gruffly that he’ll take it, and walks off having done what little he could to make Mom feel better. Agh, such a little big man, grown up before his time.

Next Jung-hoo goes to Moon-ho, who assures him that nobody will mess with his mother anymore—Moon-shik was only testing whether Jung-hoo was the Healer. He says that his hyung isn’t so low that he’d keep going, which seems like it could be true in this case, but also seems naive of Moon-ho. I hope for his sake he’s right.

Jung-hoo reminds him that his brother used Mom as bait and tried to kill Young-shin. His impatience is at odds with Moon-ho’s infuriating calm, and he demands to know why Young-shin was targeted, intent on ensuring that she’ll never be in danger again. Moon-ho tells him a man named the Elder is the real one pulling the strings, and that’s who they’ll need to go after next.

Jung-hoo asks who this “we” refers to, and Moon-ho replies, “You and me, and probably Young-shin.” Jung-hoo’s not very interested, guessing correctly that Moon-ho’s tactic will be to expose the Elder using the media. Jung-hoo is just interested in finding his father’s police files and getting rid of the evil, to which Moon-ho chuckles that killing one Elder will just lead another to take his place.

Just then, the doorbell rings, and Moon-ho sends Jung-hoo to answer it, saying merely that it’s “the woman I like.” In irritation, Jung-hoo opens the door… and finds Young-shin there. Wait, did Moon-ho just confess his intentions?

They freeze to see each other standing there, the air strained between them. Then Jong-soo joins them, completing the team, though he remains the one leg that’s hopelessly out of the loop.

Moon-shik urges Myung-hee to take her pills and go to sleep, but she decides she wants to spend more time awake. She says it’s fine if she’s in pain, but she wants to do some thinking, since it’s been ages since she’s done any. She starts with twenty years ago, asking about her hospital bills—she was laid up for a year in a VIP room. How did he manage to pay for it all?

He has a ready answer—he sold his junkyard—but Myung-hee says with a cold smile that she’s going over the math. And when he takes her hand, she pulls free again.

Moon-shik doesn’t understand the sudden change, and it unnerves him. The sight of his water glass grabs his attention, and he inches it closer to the edge of the counter, almost in a trance, until he pushes it over the edge. It shatters. Foreshadowing?

Young-shin gets to work on their new story—digging into the background of the next mayoral candidate, aka Moon-shik—and interviews Moon-ho as a part of it. She traces Moon-shik’s trajectory from 1992 till now, finding his sharp rise to media executive quite unusual.

Moon-ho recalls how in those days, a lot of visitors had come by daily—but they weren’t from the media. Jeil Newspaper was on the brink of bankruptcy, but an investment company named Omega bought up shares, and immediately afterward, Moon-shik became president. “Isn’t that interesting?” he asks.

Jung-hoo snatches a moment to connect with Min-ja, worrying about Teacher being held at the police station. He’s ready to charge in to free the old man himself, but Min-ja orders him to stay put, feeling assured that Teacher will take care of himself.

It’s bad enough that Young-shin is distant with him, but now Jung-hoo has to watch her chatting cheerily with the boss and sidekick. Moon-ho assigns them each a stack of research to get through by tomorrow, and ignores Jung-hoo’s protest that he’s busy tonight. Jong-soo, on the other hand, is happy to go home with Young-shin to work together, and Jung-hoo simmers in the background.

So the three reporters head over to the cafe, and Dad welcomes the newcomer. Jong-soo’s eager to impress Dad, to Jung-hoo’s disgruntlement, and Dad and ajusshi try to figure out which guy made Young-shin cry. They’d thought it was Bong-sookie, but seeing her being so friendly to the other guy, they’re no longer sure.

Jung-hoo shoots daggers at Jong-soo (seriously, if looks could kill) as he reads over documents with Young-shin. Finally he heads out in agitation, looking for a drink, and Young-shin finds him there to offer him a choice: east or west. He picks east, and she tells him the result: They’ll stand next to each other for a minute and talk.

He asks what west would’ve gotten him, and when she says a ten-second hug, he immediately turns to her with outstretched arms and says, “I want to switch.”

At least that makes her laugh, and he says he’s relieved, because he thought she was angry with him. She replies, “I’m not angry, I’m holding back.”

“Holding back?” he asks. “Yeah,” she replies, “from wanting to hold hands.”

He stares down at her, surprised. “I want to hug, and talk all night,” she says. “And kiss too.” Omg. He’s stunned speechless, and then Young-shin clarifies, “I want to do that with him, but I’m holding back.”

Ah, boo. Note that in Korean, it totally sounded like she meant she wanted to do those things with Bong-soo, until that last part. I’m sure that ambiguity was intentional, too—it’s her small way of expressing her feelings while preserving his facade.

When she moves away, Jung-hoo stops her and comes around to face her, like he’s going to say something… do something… But then he shakes his head, unable to take it any further.

“He still hasn’t come,” Young-shin says. Jung-hoo says, “He’ll have a reason.” She agrees, but says the guy is still a jerk. And thus, even though she’ll wait for him, “Still, it makes me furious.”

He acknowledges that, and for a brief second, Young-shin rests her forehead on his shoulder. He reaches up to touch her, but she pulls away and moves past, their hands barely brushing. And then Jung-hoo reaches back wildly to grab for her, but only gets empty air. He looks crushed.

In the morning, Min-ja catches a glimpse of suspicious activity on her security monitor: Secretary Oh meeting someone. We don’t see him clearly, but she seems to recognize him.

Teacher eats breakfast in custody, and Detective Yoon arrives to interrogate him, starting with the name Jo Min-ja. Teacher feigns ignorance but Detective Yoon isn’t fooled, since Min-ja, his former sunbae, is listed as visiting Teacher in prison five times. She taught him all about hacking, and yesterday he encountered a familiar pattern.

Teacher smiles and says he’ll have to surrender himself: “I am the Healer.”

Outside the station, a police officer drops something in to a trash can, and the camera lingers on a small glass vial. Hmm.

Min-ja calls Jung-hoo once she’s recognized the man who met Secretary Oh—one of Detective Yoon’s minions. Crap, so an insider at the station is in cahoots with the baddies. At that, Jung-hoo starts running.

Teacher gives his statement, giving the basics of his Healer activities, and volunteers to start with the most recent and work backward. He fidgets with his collar and adds, “I don’t have much time.” Shit, what was in that vial? Shit, what was in his breakfast?

Young-shin continues her research and comes upon a happy photo of Moon-shik and his wife. She lingers on Myung-hee’s face, though she doesn’t quite know why yet.

Teacher offers up information readily about his latest work being for Moon-shik, confirming that he’s acquainted with the cases of Go Sung-chul and President Hwang.

But suddenly, he begins foaming at the mouth, even though it doesn’t wipe the smile from his face. “I told you,” Teacher gurgles. “I don’t have much time.”

His head drops onto his chest. Detective Yoon tears out of the room to get help.

Jung-hoo hurries to the police station and sees the ambulance out front. A body is wheeled out on a gurney, a sheet pulled over its head. An arm falls limply from under the sheet, revealing the telltale wound on Teacher’s arm.

 
COMMENTS

Noooooo, not you, OG Healer! At first I wondered if he’d poisoned himself, but upon consideration I think it’s likelier that Teacher recognized the symptoms kicking in and decided he would confess before he died. I was angry with him for the way he abandoned Jung-hoo, but I’ve grown really fond of him, and found his combination of smiling facade and seething undertone to be really compelling. This drama has done a fantastic job casting everybody’s past counterparts and Teacher is one of the highlights, where you can really see how one grew into the other. His constant grin can be aggravating sometimes, particularly when Jung-hoo’s dying for him to be serious, but it’s completely in line with his character—and as an added bonus, it’s gratifying to see how much it pisses Moon-shik off.

That scene with the old friends was one of my favorites, and it’s because Teacher is so glib that it’s powerful when he lets that steeliness show through, as he did when he vowed to protect the bear cubs. He may not have foreseen that he was walking into his death when he took Jung-hoo’s place, but it was still moving to see how he took on his fate anyway. Maybe it even satisfied him to think he died via poison that might’ve taken Jung-hoo instead. In that way, Jung-hoo’s two closest loved ones have both shoved him away to protect him, and it’s extra poignant (and yes, frustrating too) that they would willingly accept the smaller pain to spare him a greater one. The fact that he’ll learn this far after the fact feels like one of those great sorrows of growing up—you don’t appreciate things until it’s too late to take back your reaction. But that’s life.

It seems likely that Moon-shik gave the order to kill Teacher after their face-to-face, which adds another to his body count tally. Sigh. It’s interesting to see that in the flashback scene, Moon-shik may even have had an explanation that made some kind of sense—it doesn’t absolve him of his decision to sell his soul, but I do believe that at one time, his heart was in the right place. And funny enough, I feel like if the five friends had remained alive, Moon-shik wouldn’t have been tempted away to the dark side, because even if he didn’t have everything he wanted and his thirst for greater things in life remained unfulfilled, the friendships would have been enough. But once that cracked, Moon-shik lost the shield of their influence, and then it’s just been bad choice after bad choice.

I find Moon-shik a nicely shaded character who doesn’t strike me as being a one-note villain, but admittedly he’s getting eviller and eviller, enough that I have little sympathy for his actions. I got chills at the suggestion that he might be doping Myung-hee on purpose, to keep her insensate and caged at his side. Prior to this episode I thought he was taking advantage of her condition to keep her housebound, selfishly but with good intentions. It didn’t strike me that he would medicate her so heavily that she would spend most of her time asleep—and that’s particularly creepy, because it suggests that he wants her as a possession, not a partner. If he’s truly just trying to keep her pain-free, then maybe he’s not quite the devil incarnate. But now I can’t shake the idea that he’s keeping her on needless drugs so that she doesn’t think for herself, and that makes me shudder.

Moving on: Young-shin knows!!!! I wasn’t sure what I wanted of her reaction to the discovery, but it was interesting to me that she was more betrayed by Bong-soo than she was excited to know who her Healer was. Granted that could just be that shock is the first reaction, and she’ll come around to gladness next. But it makes sense that she was hurt by Bong-soo, because she’d poured out her heart to him in a way that was much more intimate than the moments she’d spent with the Healer.

I loved that Young-shin told Jung-hoo that she was angry with him, because while we all know (and are waiting for the day when) she’ll forgive him eventually, the ends don’t justify the means—that’s not a good enough excuse. It matters how you do things, and it matters that she’s hurt in the process, and even though she recognizes that she won’t stop having faith in him, she won’t postpone her feelings just because he isn’t ready to explain himself yet.

So I loved that little moment when they brushed by each other, wanting to touch but not emotionally ready yet. I appreciate that as much as we want them to just shove aside the logic and take everything out into the open, there are credible reasons for why they haven’t gotten to that point. In the meantime, they’ll speak in veiled comments about some mythical third person, and I’m excited to see more of that because those double-entendre conversations can be so revealing—where they’re speaking about one person but meaning another (…although okay, Healer and Bong-soo are still the same guy). Ironically enough, the false front can allow them the freedom to be honest about their feelings in a way they can’t be in a plainspoken way, and that is never a bad thing.

ok, that was quite a sad scene, but the end will justify the mean, whatever.

I can't focus on all the chaos that is going on with that cafe scene betwen Bong soo and Yeong Shin , that is everything to me for now, it was beautifully executed and this kind of conversation is rare..talking about a third person which they both know is in the same room with them yet pretending he is somewhere but there.

Geez, I am just watching but i can totally feel the tension as if I'm on the same room with them. gotta watch that again.

And the way you stare, Bong Sookie, arctic ice will surely melt. must be hard to be Park min Young, unless, of course, she is so immune to these stares by now.

Jealous Park Bong Soo is also a riot! Whoa,boy, no matter how good looking you are than maybe the other guy, when the green monster bites, it shows. Dagger looks alert. The other guy is so unaware tho,lol!

1. I am just wondering how PBS's car ended up in hospital coz CYS doesn't have a driving license....
2. So I guess PBS's island could have been an unconscious desire to retreat and hide in the momoru island whatever - stemmed from some hidden childhood memories...?
3. And did he give teddy bear to CYS? Coz his mom was sewing/making lots of teddy bears?
These little details are so intriguing

Well I have a few theories which I can try an answer...

1. PBS's car ended up in hospital most like because his helper picked it up. Or it could be that the rooftop is very close to the hospital itself.

2. True I think it is his subconscious desire that could've played a part and also his painful childhood from being abandoned from people he loves too.

3. Hmm which teddy bear? I must've missed that *off to go watch episode again*

:)

Required fields are marked *

wow, you're good.
I would have missed that - for logical reasons the car must still be at the mall at that point - so let's presume she went back there. If his helper had moved it, CYS would not know where to find it, since they (helper and CYS) don't meet until after she returns.
On that note: I believe PBS finding the little star, was not a clue for him that she didn't know about him yet, but confirmation that she most likely did.

I'm so late guys but I love this show!!!? I'm soo upset about teacher dying guys??. There is a part of me that's hoping that teacher isn't really dead and that he will somehow show up!!! Did anyone else find it weird that it seems as if teacher knew he was going to die? He was soo happy with that breakfast and saying it tasted good etc. and he told detective yoon he only had a short time left right? I guess he realized he was poisoned?? I mean, does it seem like he KNEW what was going to happen or is it just me? When I saw the show I assumed teacher made it LOOK like he was dead to protect Jung Hoo but maybe i'm off base. After all, ajumma did say there were bad guys in the place where teacher was being held.? But it still seems a bit fishy and weird to me!!???

Yes, it's too bad that the teacher should die tragically like this :'( there's no more old bear to protect the 2 cubs. While 1 oma bear seems also calculating to go on war with his evil husband, yet i'm a bit worried about her safety.

btw, for those who wants to try watch live streaming using android phone, just download the app from olweb.tv, i swear last night was watching with almost minor lag comparing to stream directly from kbs using pc. So i really hope the internet connection God is not put some acting tonight.

Such a loss indeed. I can't fathom the idea on how Healer will reveal himself considering teacher just confessed to the crime. I believe the teacher did that to free jung ho from any responsibility and to live add himself and not as the Healer. Maybe jung hoo will now exposed and open to the public be able to solve the crime from 20 years ago.

It's sad loss indeed, but somehow I can't help but think that teacher's lost will be a turning point for our characters. He's probably gonna be a catalyst for JH to seek revenge.

RIP Teacher. *clogged nose* *sniff* Your sacrifice will not be in vain!

Now that "Healer" is essentially dead, JH can finally use his own name and start anew. Maybe this is the start of his journey of becoming a reporter (with Moon Ho's guidance)?

But why does it seem likely that Moon-shik was the one to add to the body count by directing the poison? I'm confused because didn't the sleazy secretary guy try to kill CYS without the instructions of MS last time?

And no!!!! I wonder whether JH feels guilty because he fell into the trap to save his mom, when Ahjumma advised him against it. I mean, not that he should but that is a common theme (I'm thinking Harry Potter and Sirius Black, anyone?).

@azfih Because of the change he saw in Myung Hee. She was there silent and without questioning all these years and then suddenly one day Healer shows up, she is startled, goes to meet Myung Hee's mom, lies after that, then now wants to think about what happened that many years ago.

That must have pissed him off real bad. Now I wonder what would the reaction be for each small thing Myung Hee is gonna do move away from him.

And right you are Harry and Sirius comparison. But Harry was plain stupid there. I mean out of all the ways they could try and do, and tehy could do Magic for god's sake! Half my time at age of 13 would have been to think of alternative ways in which Harry should not have been THAT stupid. If I had been Hermione, I would have knocked him out and locked him inside while I devised a BETTER plan!

While I was getting side tracked there, he is gonna feel guilty as hell but I dont think there is any way to pull out here because tehy all were in danger with or without him going out!

@ Divyrus

Thanks for clearing that up! :) Yeah, I shudder to think what MS is going to do in the episodes to come. Especially if he is deranged enough and so unhealthily obsessed with her to the point that he drugs her.

Yes, Harry was pretty stupid. The idiot could have used I don't know, like 101 ways (like I don't know that thing they used in the fireplace to go to diagon alley, apparition (contact someone they know who knew how to do it etc... and on and on), to simply contact Sirius, but instead he goes rushing off to the ministry of magic. LOL.

OOOPS, sidetracked. But I still think that JH (while of course he is still human and therefore prone to make mistakes), should have listened to Ahjumma when she warned it was a trap. On the other hand, if they had been holding my mom hostage, I would have barreled in their guns ablazing LOL.

0

@azfih
You are right in that, he shouldnt have rushed in blind. But still I dont blame him, what if it was really his mom and after what secretary did with the lift to Kill young Shin, he cant really take a chance. So cant fault him completely.

0

@Divyrus

Oh yeah, that is true, and even in that situation with saving CYS he did put his identity at risk (not wearing his outfit and all), so it does fit in with his character. LOL

I dunno why I put "LOL". Force of habit, sorry :p

Wow @azifih *high five*

I was thinking Harry Potter and Sirious Black too when teacher made that sacrifice!! I was so sad to see teacher gone, he really did loved JH and wasn't a jerk all this time. Even leaving JH was meant to protect him from discovering and being hurt by the truth. Although JH was confused by teacher abandoning him, it wasn't without a reason. Now it's really sad because the one person who raised JH up into Healer has died...his caretaker, mentor, and someone who he could talk to in all those lonely years growing up. Like others, I am so angry at the baddies for killing teacher. And if it weren't for that foreshadowing of MS, I would not suspect him to be the murderer. That foreshadowing scene was there for a reason before teacher got murdered...so my only conclusion is MS really has gone over to the dark side fully. Before he was hesitant and like what JB said it was his friends that kept him from going to the bad side. Myunghee was the last person to hold him from going evil completely. She was his last weakness, so when she finally let go of his hand...he became bad (hence the foreshadow).

Those are just my thoughts :)

@Bongsookie

That makes sense, thanks!

Yeah, it would be definitely a blow to see someone who raised you to pass away, but what is even more poignant of his death is the fact that JH was so angry (rightfully) that he was abandoned by teacher, just to find out that teacher ultimately sacrificed his life for JH and YS. He never stopped caring. But I think he will probably be able to heal a scar, which is that no one cares for him, because the Teacher sacrificing his life, shows that there are people who love and loved him deeply.

bongsookie, what is worst than not having tasted at all... is to desire, to yearn, .years came and gone,a dn you giave up desiring, give up normal life,, give up wanting and giving....finally to hold for a short while, then you lost it agian, as in forever.. this is one of the most saddening ep of whole 13 ep... when you receive what you deserved, and yet, lost your mom, your mentor, lost the harmony and the closeness with the "blood cell" of your life... you dread this moment, while you do desire it, you gave it a try, wanting to give up all.. just to be normal... but none of the both of your "self" is neither the real you, which one of your "self" can protect her and love her more.. and you see her gotten more hurt because of your silent... your mom, your mentor, your heartstring... poor poor sookie... suddenly i understand why i loved your characer to much now, not just a pretty face that look like JiChangWook... nay,,, if bongsook can make Yeongshin wanted to protect him, then we noona really aching for you to have someone to love you finally, in the person o Yeongshin. ... such a heart wrenching night was the last.... just stare at the blank lap top scene.. wouldn't sleep. poor boy.

You're right. It could be either MS or the Elder. The loose end the writer's been dangling has been the fact that the Healer had the blackmail tape with the Elder's face clearly seen.

I could be wrong, but my guess is that the poison was the Elder. Moon Shik is shady and deserves no forgiveness, but I'm of the mind that he's never outright committed murder. He's just an accomplice and a red herring. The drama of him pushing the glass off the counter and Teacher being poisoned... it just seemed a little too tidy given the subtlety the show has shown previously.

0

P.S. I also feel like Moon Shik has enough gray that a redemption arc could be in store, but I'm not holding my breath. I guess the opposite could be true too but I kind of hope they don't make him outright evil.

@agentsawse

Also a little skeptic if MS did the poisoning. He knew for sure that Teacher isn´t Healer and though Teacher was a liability, would he really be that quick on his feet? Smells like Elder to me, who rather won´t take any chances. Still, needless to say, that MS is flipping coins, now that Myung-hee won´t hold on to his hand anymore. If he was greyish until now, it will be deep black soon enough.

I actually love that the Elder is a bit forgotten (those smiling old men, who have nothing else to say besides: that-was-entertaining-now-do-what-you-have-to-do in semi dark rooms, oh so boring!) and MS is making his own choices. I don´t think he´s in this, because he made one bad choice after the other. He actually needed just that one very bad choice in the beginning(alas, he could´ve died along his friends heroically, or just keep quiet and watch Myung-hee die, because he couldn´t afford to save her...mmm, tough one), the rest is history.

I have no doubt whatsoever that it was on MS' order that Teacher was poisoned. Perspective change as do people. The MS of today is not the MS of 22 years ago who even if he did not cause the death of his two friends, at lest gave false testimony regarding that incident. For the poisoning, consider:-
- the policeman who did the poisoning met up with Sec Oh, sufficient to trigger Hacker Ahjumma's alarm for her to send JH to the police station where Teacher was held.
- MS gave the order for Goh Seung Chol(?) to be killed and Healer framed for the murder, without batting an eye, and for the simple reason that Goh Seong Chol knew Je Il newspaper is involved.
- Teacher alluded to the fact that GH and JS were not the last of MS' murder.
- MS' cryptic order to Sec Oh to either pull Healer to their side or failing that, to do the usual - which to me means killing Healer.
- MS is righteous of the peace he has kept and is angered by the subversives who are out to disrupt that peace, even if they are old friends.
- MHee's moving away from under his thumb and reclaiming a semblance of her past independence has unhinged MS.

These are the reasons why I think Teacher was murdered on the orders of MS.

As for MS nudging the glass off the counter, I actually fear for MHee's safety; that if he can't have her completely under his thumb or like a prized possession, he might as well have her killed. Isn't MHee one of two fatal wounds?

...one of MS' two fatal wounds?

I am so heartbroken. I didn't see this coming - teacher... I can't even utter those fatal words. I didn't realize how vital his role was coz I had assumed he would end up with ahjumma.

Yes, such a sad sad episode. My heart felt like it was ripping in thousands of pieces the whole time. It was agonizing to watch bong soo and young shin together achingly wanting to be together but something greater and more dangerous is preventing them to. On the other hand, I pray that teacher didn't die. It will defiantly destroy jung hoo so much because he had lost the few most important people in his lifetime.

God I swear his loneliness just tears my heart right open. Please someone give him happiness. :( :(

Did I tell you how much I love you? Thank you so much!! Thanks to you I was finally able to learn what it was called and was able to properly google it - HTML. I just learnt a whole bbunc. The reason I asked was because I'm responsible for reposting some analyses I found on Tumblr and a lot of the times those analyses use bold, italics, underlines, and deleted out words. So every time I copy and paste into here, the meaning gets lost because I didn't know how to do it. I've just learnt a lot of new things today thanks to you. It made me think I must be living under a rock all this time haha.

On top of reading your comments I just learnt how to do the rest here http://www.w3schools.com/htmL/html_formatting.asp

Okay let me give it a try and see if it works:

bold

small text

Back to the drama. I am loving the evolution of MH noona, in the way that she is starting to distance herself from KMS, and question things. My wishes might come true, if she ends up playing a big (or significant) part in solving what happened 20 years ago. It is great to see the chasm that is happening, between KMS and her. And what a chasm, it seems to be.

I didn’t expect Teacher to die in this ep., and I was sad to see him go. Besides having to distance (even more) himself from his mom, SJH lost another person he loved. It’s a good thing that won’t happen with CYS. I loved it when KMH told Healer, “the woman I love is here. Please open the door,” and CYS showed up. That was so sweet. I wonder if KMH sensed the tension between Healer and CYS. And SJ continues to be funny. I love his reactions in the show, and the way Healer ignored him, when he handed him the cameras.

Well, I guess CYS knows now, who Healer is. I loved their scene at the hospital, and the one at the café (of course). I am also impressed by the fact that, even though their romance has been “pink” so far, their confessions to each other, and their romantic interactions feel so intimate, and so sensual at times. That’s some chemistry. And the look of longing Healer had on his face, while CYS was telling him the things she would like to do with him (Swoon, and awww). I also feel that hands are quite significant for this couple: the holding of hands, the “barely there” touching of hands, etc… After all, that is how CYS finally realized that PBS was Healer.

I LOVED, loved, loved CYS scene with her dad. That is one good and devoted man she has (besides the ajussis [sp?]) It was so touching to see the two of them, and hear how CYS came to be a part of that family. And I loved how she put simply her head on her dad’s arm, looking as if she knew that she could always lean on him.

Myung Hee is also one of the characters I'm on the lookout for. I know she's a strong woman deep down, she just needs some time to free herself from Moon Shik's grasp.

It makes me so glad that KMH hasn't turned into a third wheel. The way I see it, he's actually playing matchmaker between JH and YS. And "the woman I love" bit was just to tease JH and make him jealous (because it's sooooo obvious)!

Agree with the chemistry thing! I can't believe the amount of *cough* sexual tension between them, when there's barely any skinship!

Hello there Omomo, How you be? :-)

I think there are some comments you left me in epis. 11 and 12 I never got to answer to. Regarding joining you guys in the pool of drool, that looks well… wet and… slimy, so I will let you guys enjoy! :-) Also, though I like (or maybe really like JCW), I think some of guys love him more :-) so I thought I would leave you in like-minded company :-) In RE: to my comment about leaving JCW to you (and not fighting you or GB, or some of the other beanies for him), as your brain told you (already), YES you are (such a fangirl)!!!! I understand the love though, I have been there :-)

I really love MH, she has such a presence. I watch every ep. Intently, however, I am literally glued to the screen, when she comes on. I am hoping that writer-nim will give her sth significant in RE: to solving the mysteries, and continuing to unravel for us, who KMS and the Elder are (and other players). I look forward to her reunion with CYS, that one will be, ouf… (will be very moving, I imagine). I wouldn’t be surprised if when they 1st meet, neither one knows that they are related, though CYS’s reaction today, at seeing the pix was interesting. And I agree with you, once she frees herself from KMS’s grasp, it will be interesting to see what happens.

I am glad KMH is not a 3rd wheel either. So you think he knows SJH loves CYS? There was that look on his face, when he asked SJH to go open the door, so you could be right. KMH playing matchmaker? Hum… I don’t know. RE: the sexual tension, you are so right! It’s there already! And everything they have done so far has been so innocent, yet there are all these feelings and wants, and longings! I just LOVE how their romance started, and how it has progressed. I LOVE that they can convey so much, with the kind of skinship they have (or barely have), and with all the double-entendre conversations that take place. I look forward to the next kiss, considering where they are at, emotionally, and in the plot. So do you think SJH knows, or suspects that CYS knows, that he is, Healer? Maybe not (yet)? Since he seemed relieved, when he found the little star in his car.

On a different note, I am curious about Det. Yoon’s involvement in things now, since “Healer” died in front of him. I am also patiently waiting to find out (fully) who KMS really is, and what Elder means to him. I love that so many men are protective of CYS: her dad, the ajusshis, SJH, KMH. I am glad that even though she doesn’t have friends, she has a strong community. It seems that you and I might have the same subs. Did yours had CYS saying, “West would have meant 10mns hugging, (or 10secs)?”

@ Mary of Bethany: I loved what you said, so well said. Though I didn’t feel that PBS lost his girl, he simply didn’t have her fully yet, which is why I think CYS decided to patiently wait (for Healer to come to her), because she is already his, and she told him that. I feel the same you do about PBS/Healer/SJH: I will remember him long after the drama is over (he is one of my favorite characters), and yes, much credit goes to writer SJN, to the director, and to JCW. Like you, I have been able to feel all that Healer feels. I loved this, ” such a poor poor poor brave brave bongsookie.”

"It was so touching to see the two of them, and hear how CYS came to be a part of that family."

This scene was also such a nice tie-in to how CYS is choosing to let Healer to come to her in his own timing, rather than forcing the issue into the open.

Hi Gidget,
FYI, I left you a response in one of the previous recaps (either last week or the week before). I did love how CYS "protected" Healer. Not saying anything at the hospital, covering for him when he couldn't answer about his dongsaeng being at the hospital, etc... giving him the opportunity to come to her when he is ready. t Yet, she wanted to make sure that she would see him again, b/c she is as much in love with him, as he is with her.

yeah with all the action there is no need for an actual love triangle. and moon ho was totally messing with jung hoo when he said cys was "the woman he loved" esp since he DOES love cys but not in /that/ way. its clear he still sees her as a cute baby sister even now. which i love cuz otherwise i would have found it creepy tbh and wholly unnecessary for plot or romance angst. as we can see there's plenty of that as is! i rly like moon ho tbh as a character and heir apparent to where the original 5 left off before all the tragedies overtook them. hopefully junghoo and youngshin will be part of the New Gen of rabble rousers in their parents places.

@ Tai,
I agree with you that there is no need for an actual love triangle. I didn't think KMH would have romantic feelings about CYS, and I am glad we were right about that. I also do love that he loves her dearly, as he loves her mom also (who loves him back). So KMH was messing with SJH, huh? Interesting... I had not seen that, when I watched the ep. I also like KMH as a character. Let's see if this happens, "hopefully junghoo and youngshin will be part of the New Gen of rabble rousers in their parents places."

@ Ivoire. Agree with almost everything you say.

My fav scene in this was the one with her dad. It was so beautiful, the dad was so understanding. I felt that when the dad said that he waited for her when he was first adopting her, it was as if drawing a parallel to JH and YS, as if, YS was thinking then I should wait for JH to admit he is Healer and come to me too, and the pain would be worth it at the end, and you can almost see her calming down and relaxing at her dad's words. Far-fetched?

Also, my second favorite scene, the cafe scene was roar. Their chemistry is not something to make fun of, shit.

Finally, I like that Myung Hee is getting smarter in terms of MS, BUT I'm really, really worried that it is going to push him over the edge further, if possible, and that is scarrrrryyy!!!!

Hello azfih, good to read your thoughts :-)

I loved what you said in your 1st #, and no, I don’t think that it is far-fetched. It is quite plausible. I love that scene, because it reminded me of some of the comments by beanies who wished there were more scenes with the dad, and that was answered in this ep. I love CYS’s dad. He can be tough, yet there is a gentleness and a strong protective side to him. He can also be a patient man, and that says a lot. For me, that scene reminded me of the one of CYS and her dad at the park, when he 1st sang to her, and gave her the power to “shut him on or off”. I love that he didn’t push her, and he waited (and as he said, he would have waited some more). I really loved your perspective, I had not thought of that. I LOVE CYS’s relationship with her dad, how she can lean on him. I don’t know how she would move to an island, and leave her dad behind. And Healer will eventually follow in her dad’s footsteps, we know he is totally devoted to CYS. I found interesting that she asked her dad why he loved her, as if she didn’t deserve it.

Yeah, that café scene, I could feel the chemistry coming from my computer screen. I love how tentative SJH was, trying to touch CYS. The hesitation… You could feel him longing to do just that, and yet, as JB said, he might not be ready to out himself. And that makes me LOVE how JCW communicates that battle in himself. No words said about that, just the way SJH conveys the whole struggle. I love that JCW/Healer is given a gamut of emotions to portray, and he is doing it well.

Like you, I love that MH is getting smarter, and yes, I am a little worried about her. I am so curious about that cup that KMS pushed over the edge (and how platonic he remained), and what that might mean. Did he do something like that (to MH) in the past, or is he considering doing that in the near future, if she continues to probe?

"I found interesting that she asked her dad why he loved her, as if she doesn't deserve it".
Yeah! That scene broke my heart. She looked so small and insecure. But she is lucky that her adopted Dad is such a kind and loving man. He is her rock.

The second comment - I will write an intelligent comment... *melts to the floor remembering* (Sorry this is a trend of mine, when something gets too steamy, I melt) :p

I think the cup being pushed to the edge is literally a representation that the fact that MH is rejecting has pushed him over the edge. Almost like he has wholly crossed over to the dark side?

@ azfih,

Yes! You are right, she did look small and insecure, when she asked that question. When I heard her say that, I felt like she was wondering (maybe?) why Healer liked her. What would make him like her? So she talked to her dad, about what was attractive about her. Maybe she was also trying to understand why PBS had to lie to her, for so long. So the lying might not have been the problem, but why he continued, when he knew how she felt about him. And I agree with you, her dad is an awesome dad!

I LOVED your 2nd comment, so funny!!!! :-)

About this, "I think the cup being pushed to the edge is literally a representation that the fact that MH is rejecting has pushed him over the edge. Almost like he has wholly crossed over to the dark side?" You could be right. KMS was already in the dark side, so maybe he will be more into it? It was just interesting how deliberate he was, in pushing that cup, and its execution.

Thanks for the recap. Holy crap. 300 and more comments already?

OMG, this episode. That scene in the hospital was soooo awkward and tension-filled. SO delicious. I love my OTP with a side of angst.

And then the scene at the cafe, the way their hands grazed and then he reached back...OMG, I CANNOT. *flail*

I agree with the recap, that Young Shin feels betrayed by Bong Soo and it does make sense. I mean, from what we can see, Young Shin doesn't have a best friend, her life revolves around her work, that's pretty much it. And then Bong Soo came and she poured her heart to him, their nightly chats were comfortable and sweet. Bong Soo has become her best friend so....the fact that he was lying to her all the time stung like a bitch.

AND TEACHER!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Geez, that scene between Jung Hoo and his mom, and the flashback, I sobbed.

So much goodness.

@ Julia,

You summed it so well, "So much goodness!" I love that the drama is keeping its quality, ep. after ep. About this, "OMG, this episode. That scene in the hospital was soooo awkward and tension-filled. SO delicious. I love my OTP with a side of angst." I am with you there. I LOVED the hospital scene, so many layers.
And about this, "And then the scene at the cafe, the way their hands grazed and then he reached back…OMG, I CANNOT. *flail*" Hahaha, I loved your reaction!

You know, when I watched the ep. I didn't think deeply about CYS's perspective, RE: feeling betrayed by PBS, but you and JB have a point. She was betrayed, though PBS/SJH didn't mean to hurt her. Maybe he didn't know how and when to tell her? I wanted to see CYS continue to develop feelings for PBS more, before the reveal.

I am there with you on this one as well "Geez, that scene between Jung Hoo and his mom, and the flashback, I sobbed." I love all of Healer's scenes with his mom.

That missed touch when JH swung his arm back wildly to try and grab hold of her...it was sooooo full of meaning. You could see his regret, and his longing, and yet his insecurity at telling her the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. That moment when he told her, "Surely he has a good reason." sounded like he was begging her to understand him (or rather, his alter ego)... and I loved it when she replied, looking him straight in the eye, "Surely he does. But I'm still furious."

And I loved that moment of understanding between both. That there is a good enough reason and she acknowledges that.

You got to love Young Shin for that, after all she has been through with Healer and Bong Soo, from DNA test to kissing her to not confessing, the way she understood and make the decision to wait, it says volumes about the kind of person she was ( a kid refusing to come out of hole ) to trusting her dad to trust a mysterious person and now to trust Jung Hoo.

WOW!!!! @ Rainerust,

I soooo love your perspective! I had not thought of that (all those meanings). I also thought interesting that he swung his arm back WHEN she was already out of reach, which to me, conveyed that hesitation I mentioned earlier. He wants to tell her, he really wants to, BUT… he is also afraid, insecure. Remember that he also hesitated (briefly) when he kissed her? And the way he slowly closed his right hand, felt like an opportunity he had (which he did), yet he missed it (when she decided to leave, since he was not fessing up), and yes, he regretted it. I also loved how she barely put her head on his chest, letting it rest there for a min. And SJH wanting to hug her then (and then she moved). That scene was awesome. I watched the ep. live this morning, and when the subs were out, I was dying to know what they said to each other during that scene. I also seriously LOVED how he looked at her, during that entire scene.

On a different note, I find (younger) KMS so full of restraint. I watched him in today’s ep., and I realized that he (almost) never smile, yet he smiled (barely) in this ep. He seemed happy to see Healer, and I wished Healer/Teacher would have listened to him, that day in the hospital.

@Ivoire Re: Moon Shik - I think it's actually probably what drove the nail in deeper for Moon Shik, when Young Jae refused to listen to his excuses - his two friends were dead (for reasons yet that we don't know), Myung Hee was in danger, he had lost Ji-an, and then Young Jae came to the hospital showing him what he did not want to see - the cracks in his own soul.

It's the role that Young Jae plays in the 5 friends; he's basically the fool (see Shakespeare) who reflects the painful truth even though he always seems smiley and jokey. I thought it was especially clear where he told MS to fess up to liking Myung Hee, and get rejected so he could cry and let it all go and go back to being friends, and then again in this hospital flashback, where he basically asked Moon Shik what exactly he had done such that he could have gotten a promotion and a 'step up in life' when all his friends were dead, or dying, or missing in their vigilant pursuance of the truth.

@ Rainerust, again I love your perspective in your 1st #, especially this, “Young Jae came to the hospital showing him what he did not want to see – the cracks in his own soul.” I had noticed that KMS always seemed to be on the fringes of their friendship, almost like he was never fully in. You never see him play with the others, laugh, or smile. Maybe half a smile, but not fully smiling. He never seems happy. It kind of makes me wonder why he was friends with that group in the 1st place, really. I can assume that they maybe met at school, or in college, and they all loved media, or were interested in it. But why did he continue to hang out with them? Was it once again because of MH?

About your 2nd #, you make another good point. KMS seems to hold a lot of things inside. He never confessed to MH (when they were younger), and that could have tainted/damaged his “friendship” with the other four. And I agree with you that the question he asked KMS (about what he had done), was an important one. The sad thing is that KMS had already rationalized why he did what he did. Some beanies in previous recaps’ comments mentioned that, that was part of the problem with KMS, that his distorted version of what is acceptable, and the way he justifies things in his mind is very troubling, and it is. That also makes him feel that he can continue to do what he does, killing people (by not having a direct hand in it), steal important info (with KC, who died), manipulate and change the truth in the media, etc… I might be alone in this, however I really love how KMS is portrayed and I love the actor who plays him. He is very nuanced in his body language, and in his facial expressions. I also appreciate how slowly the writer is peeling the layers of every character in the drama, and how things from the past are revealed, in a measured way. I personally like KMS (not what he does). What would the drama be, without him?

You know, I had some questions about previous episodes, and I thought that maybe you could help me figure them out. 1-In ep. 11, I don’t know if you noticed it, and if you might remember, however, there was a scene where KMH was talking to Healer, and it sounded as if he called him, “Jeong-hoo-ni.” I don’t remember if it was in KMH’s kitchen, or in the junkyard, but I remember (thinking) that I heard something like that. Did you? 2-Ajumma reads all of Healer’s emails, right? So she probably knew the whole content of CYS’ email to Healer (he did stop her, when she started reading the email to him). I was just curious about that. 3-My last question is about Healer’s glasses in ep. 12. I know we saw on the board of the car, how he could see the images and written characters Ajumma would send to him, but does that mean that those are actually appearing on his glasses, and that is how he could see? They don’t reflect that far off, do they? I hope my question makes sense.

0

@Ivoire Hope you are still reading this given Ep 14 just came out HAHAHAHA

Re: your questions 1) I thought he was calling him Jong-Ho (his real name) rather than Bong Soo, but I could be wrong. 2) Yup I'm pretty sure Ahjumma filters Healer's emails and decides on what jobs they can do or makes the first cut decision before letting JH know (he obviously makes the final choice). 3) Yup the images were appearing on his glasses - think Google Glass type technology (which apparently has been piloted by the healthcare industry and was great except its way too expensive to be mass produced for now. I assume if we wait another 2 to 3 years that would change though).

Hope this helps!!

Hello Rainerust,

Yep, I am still here. I just got done watching ep.14 raw, which I found to be beautifully done (some thought it was slow). Though I didn’t understand a lot of it, (language-wise), I did “understand” a lot of it, if not all of it. I had a sense of what was happening, and why. I credit the writing and the acting for that. And I have said it before, however I really LOVE the music in this drama, the compositions they have, and how they come into the scenes. I find myself bopping my head to some of the songs. Also, I know it has been said before, yet I find interesting the parallels this drama has with City Hunter (in RE: to the heroes, what happens to them, around them, to the people they love. CH lost his “mom” in that drama, and that drove him crazy). I won’t say more, so I don’t spoil. Also, JCW is a really good actor, that was confirmed again in ep.14.

RE: my questions: 1-Yes, KMH called Healer JH, but one time, I am quite sure I heard him say “JH-ie,” because that got my attention, and I wondered if I had heard right. 2-OK, makes sense. 3-OK! Makes sense that the healthcare industry would pilot those glasses, with all the information medical professionals need, that could be useful to them. Once again, your answers helped! Thank you, I appreciate that!!

"that grabbing... that holding of hands... that slight touching of fingers..." all are his only means of telling her what words cannot... an ensuring her how he felt. wanting to comfort her when the dilemma of hurting her more if she knows... every time, he got her arms, hands.. even, when after she told him about wanting to hug and kiss, then he managed to hold her back, and almost wanting to confess... then he hold back again.... yes, the begging for forgiveness and understanding in hinting "he has a reason"... she left again, but this time round, when he need most , he missed when he try grabbing, love that part when he swung back wildly to grab... ouch, we all felt the regrets, the pain, the anguish...... poor boy.

I feel like after watching all these episodes of Healer, there's some kind of emphasis on hand holding. Like their hands are significant for their relationship and tells a great deal of how they feel. Even YS figured out Healer's identity through hand holding...just something about those hands makes it so intimate and sensual. I love how the writer have written it like this ♥

meniscus, don't know if you're going to still see this since recap 14 is out...

I felt that the hands were used as a metaphor in this episode:

CYS'S Dad, reaching out and waiting for CYS - acceptance, love, trust

CYS and BS grazing hands - (so much tension in that microsecond shot), repressed passion but hot dang, undeniable chemistry

BS's backwards grab - longing, insecurity, regret

MY slowly but firmly removing her hands from KMS - distancing herself from him

All beautifully done :_)

Hi, Ivoire! Agree with all your points. I hope myung hee finds some thing out. She lives with him after all.
I didn't expect the teacher to die too. I'm afraid of what this will do to jung hoo . All that Jung hoo has that's left of his teacher are their memories. And that one picture that every one has. It always felt like Jung hoo never hated his teacher even after he abandoned him. In episode 12, he recalls what teacher taught him, applies it and then says that old man probably never even did what he talked about. I really liked their mentor - student relationship.

@ Saema, hi! :-)

Thank you for your words in the "Odds and Ends: All Hail the Power of the Squee." I understand what you were trying to do, and I appreciate it. Staying within the confines of ep.13, I too am concerned about JH and how Teacher's death would affect him. Teacher left JH before, but he was alive, and he eventually came back. JH would be angry at him, but he loved Teacher, and he loved his company. This time though, Teacher left, and he is not coming back. And as someone said earlier, Teacher died, b/c JH decided to fall for the trap, when it turned out that his mom was not in danger, after all. They just made it look that way. If I were Healer/JH, I would feel guilty as well, tbh, because of the way Teacher died (but because of why. That was more between KMS and Teacher).

About this, " I really liked their mentor – student relationship." I did too...

@Ivorie You are right on their romance.
Its so sensual at times.
I usually dont like in kdramas how they separate the skinship from love like its another bridge you got to cross. Most of the time , its a natural process that goes together. And I like how they have developed their entire romance in similar way. It just feels so natural to have her talking about all the things she would like to do and how she is angry and she is holding it in.
Poor Jung Hoo, how much can he hold it in!

@ Divyrus,

About this, “You are right on their romance. Its so sensual at times.” It is, isn’t it? I also love their timing, in their scenes. They must rehearse those scenes, to make them look effortless and fluid.

What did you mean here, “I usually dont like in kdramas how they separate the skinship from love like its another bridge you got to cross?”

I tend to like how they do skinship in Kdramas, because it has made me appreciate that process, that time, and what skinship means in terms of how far the characters are in the relationship. I loved that conversation CYS had with JH, and how she was letting him know how she was feeling, and what she was thinking, knowing that he was Healer. She didn’t mince her words, yet she was also transparent about her longing for him, and about her desires. I loved how SJH turned to her, when she mentioned that she wanted to kiss him, and that look he had, when he looked at her. I am really appreciating, and really loving how JCW can say a lot about what his character is feeling, without actually saying a word. That’s really good acting, and becoming the character. And yes, poor JH, how much has HE been holding in, and for how long?

Hi everyone!
I am yet another dramabeans' silent reader but this drama just deserved all the thousands comments it gets, and I just can't stand still on the side without participating in the history in the making.
Few things: Firstly, the main casts are well appointed (I ship jcw and pmy) , their acting are just superb. I truly enjoyed reading all comments here.

.. And it is a refreshing to see awesome acting by JCW. he can just relay so much emotion with his eyes and other subtle body movement. I just found him sooooo irresistibly sexy.

@ivoire: your comments are very insight full, it is amazing how you can churn so much thinking so fast... I think I read it somewhere that you took notes while watching. Still reading them is a delight, just to think of it, it is like a book club, alas a Kdrama Club B-)

Anyway great chemistry between our OTP, can't wait to see more.... And the interaction of the other characters. This drama is of collectible qualities!

Daebak!

Your right,the hands,the fingers, the fingers say everything.
They have some serious chemistry these two and as I was watching I kept thinking they are amazing actors it's hard to believe it's not real. Especially at the hospital, so incredibly akward and layered,I was so nervous and anxious it's not even funny, I even forgot to breathe for a bit.
I enjoyed the teacher 's scenes immensely, he was awesome with his taunting, I sang along to his papa bear song that I learned from Full house.I'm sad he died,but he was cool till the very end.
Oh, Ivore thanks for saying you loved my comment in the previous recap,for some reason it made me immensely happy.please do watch Empress ki, it's the best drama I watched last year and for a long drama,it doesn't have any lulls in-between, it's incredibly addictive,I've personally rewatched it 4 times.it's up there for me with Coffee prince,My lovely Kim Sam soon and secret garden.Dvds that I don't travel without. I envy you to be able to watch it for the first time, the feels ╮( ̄▽ ̄)╭

@ k lava,

You know, with the importance and the many scenes their hands have in this drama, they (SJH and CYS) have developed their own communication style (kind of), it seems. They made me rethink what it means (or can mean) to hold hands, and the many ways in which couples can hold hands or do things with hands. Hands are very important, we do so much with them, in so many capacities. In this drama, as lovers, they made me rediscover how you can have limited skinship, and yet have passion, intimacy, and sensuality. Not bad, not bad at all.

And yes, they do have really good chemistry, I agree. And not only in the romantic scenes, but whenever they are together, in a scene. I liked what you said here, “They have some serious chemistry these two and as I was watching I kept thinking they are amazing actors it’s hard to believe it’s not real. Especially at the hospital, so incredibly awkward and layered, I was so nervous and anxious it’s not even funny, I even forgot to breathe for a bit.” The hospital scene was a great one, which conveyed a lot, in not only what they said to each other, but also through what was not being said. It was a great scene, really well done. I loved that moment, when CYS asked about the donsaeng knowing where he was, and SJH looked at her, and he had this long pause, because he didn‘t know how to get out of that one, so she gave him an excuse. As JB said, even he knew he was in trouble, as far as covering for himself.

About this, “he was awesome with his taunting.” Yes, Teacher was. It was like he knew how to get under KMS’s skin, and he did, every time he taunted him. So did you learn the Bear song in the drama Full House with Rain? (I was just curious).

About this, “Oh, Ivore thanks for saying you loved my comment in the previous recap, for some reason it made me immensely happy.” You are very welcome!!!! I did love your comment. I usually try to respond to comments, or/and add my 2cents worth to other beanies’ comments, however I don’t always manage to do it. So I am really glad that you actually saw my comment, and that it made you happy. Thank you again for your recommendation, and for letting me know that there is no lull moment in that 50 ep. drama (which I was dreading). That will encourage me to watch it, and I will prepare myself to experience many feels :-) Can I squee with you then? Where can I find you when Healer is over? Are you on OT? Or do you want to exchange emails addresses? (I have done it here before). And because as you said, the drama is addictive, I will wait until I have more time to start it :-) How long ago did you buy the DVD, and where? And you travel with it? Cool!!!!!

Sub-thread: LETTER to All who pass this way

1)If you’re surprised that there are so few sub-threads on this first page, it’s because other than the RATINGS, FANS PROJECT, LOVELY LINKS and WHERE WE ARE, we’ve decided to post all others in pages 3 onwards. So please use keys ‘CTRL+F’ to search ‘sub-thread’ to locate them.

2)In 4 weeks, we are going to be adrift without recaps *shuddering at the thought* and our withdrawal symptoms are going to be super acute without Drool Pool or HRUSG to turn to. So a few of us mooted this idea... let’s meet up at Open Thread. I’m going to go on Open Thread for as many Fridays as I can, and add a Comment There to All Healer Lovers … then I’ll be constantly watching it to find you my fellow Healer lovers/addicts. So if you’d like to ‘meet up’, you can go there too and search: ‘Healer Lovers’. If you do not find the ‘Healer Lovers’ sub-thread, you can create that sub-thread in OT yourselves too and the rest of us can then find you. What do you think? :)

Definitely the best first confrontation. Am sure we were all kind of hoping it would be cute and exciting and fun but this makes their story much better.

Cutting to the fun part o finding they are the same is exciting for us, but for Young Shin it was more about trust and hurt. I was glad that was not overlooked. That her anger and hurt is there for all to see.
