Healer: Episode 20 (Final)

It’s oooooooover! Are we all still alive? And satisfied? And coherent?

Healer wraps up its run in the spirit of the rest of the series, with one more tightly planned mission characterized by twists that are fun and feel-good… and maybe also a twist or two that’ll take a year off your life. But while there are a few hairy moments, I can report that I’m still standing, still (mostly) coherent, and still happy. Thanks for a fun ride, Healer-ya! K, let’s do this.

FINAL EPISODE RECAP

At the Healer lair, Jung-hoo sits down before a camera, answering questions from a list. One, he’s the Healer, and two, his job is nighttime courier. Three: Was this job his dream? Jung-hoo scoffs, and says that his initial dream was to buy an uninhabited island. But then he met this woman—and he can’t hide his smile—and the dream changed. Like his Teacher said, “I thought I should live with my woman, have kids, and live like other people.”

He thought it would be easy, but “they” won’t leave him alone, coming at him with jabs and attacks. And the most infuriating part of it: “Messing with my people.”

Manager Ahn leads the Double S team to Min-ja’s abandoned hacker den, ransacking her shelves. She’s taken all the important stuff, though, and the guards kick things in anger, which is satisfying.

Jong-soo drives Young-shin home after work and angles for an invitation, but gets sent home instead. Ha, will Jong-soo ever catch a break? She wonders why the cafe’s closed early, and finds her father and ajusshi bound and gagged inside.

Goons walk in, and one reaches for her. He gets kicked aside by a newcomer, whom she tries to thwack before realizing that it’s Jung-hoo. I love the brief cut to Dad and ajusshi’s faces when she calls his name. In between whirling combat maneuvers, Jung-hoo introduces himself to Dad, apologizing for not revealing his true name earlier. It’s cute how he makes sure to warn Young-shin to close her eyes just as he’s about to hit someone, and soon the attackers are knocked out on the floor.

He binds them and instructs Dad and ajusshi to call the cops, report a robbery, and leave out mention of him. Dad tries to wrap his head around everything and demands an explanation. Jung-hoo explains how they’re in danger from people who killed his father and teacher, but his story is so stripped-down that it doesn’t actually clear anything up for Dad.

Young-shin takes over with a much more comprehensive (and comprehensible) explanation, and Jung-hoo just chimes in with “Yes” and “She’s right” and “That’s true.” Lessons for life, man.

Jung-hoo informs them that he will be taking Young-shin away to a safehouse for her protection. But to Dad’s ears, this sounds outrageous and he isn’t having it. So Jung-hoo touches his earpiece and says over the line that Dad won’t agree, and the dads just gape in shock. HAHA. Now this is how you mix rom-com with spy thriller.

Jung-hoo switches to Plan B, saying that they’ll make the cafe the safehouse then, excusing himself for the night while Dad’s still sputtering. Then he turns back to hug Young-shin, “Just for five seconds.” You’d better believe Dad’s counting.

They say goodbye and Jung-hoo leaves… and then whirls right back and moves in for a kiss. Ajusshi has to hold Dad back, and Jung-hoo actually stops himself (awww) and pretends he was just going to remind her to eat all her meals.

Myung-hee is installed in Moon-ho’s apartment, and he asks to have dinner together, since he has something to tell her.

He answers a tipster call while heading out, and finds his informant sitting in a car in the garage. She’s a scared student in school uniform, and she opens her hand to show the message written on it: “Help me.”

Then she slumps over, and Moon-ho jumps into the car to catch her… just as a camera snaps pictures. Gah! It looks terrible—star reporter Kim Moon-ho in the backseat of a car with a high schooler.

Moon-ho sees the photographer snapping away, and then both he and the “informant” run. Just then, Dae-yong jumps in and gives the photographer a sound beating, yesssss, then swipes the camera’s memory card.

That’s when Min-ja presents herself and warns Moon-ho that as a public figure, he’s vulnerable to cheap tricks like this. He recognizes her voice as she hands over a drive containing the “LA video” and advises that he stay away from Someday for a while.

That’s because it’s currently the target of angry protests accusing it of broadcasting false and distorted news. Protesters demand its dissolution, harassing staffers on their way in.

Inside, the staff eyes “Bong-soo” in confusion, because he seems odd today, mostly ignoring them to talk into his earset. I just love all the reaction shots in this episode. Jung-hoo finds that recording from the informant and plays it for his team over the line: The caller identifies herself as Kim Jae-yoon, a biochemist doing research in Russia.

The bewildered staff wonders what’s different about Jung-hoo today as he shakes their hands (and pinches Jong-soo’s cheek), then makes his exit from an area where there aren’t any doors.

Back to Jung-hoo’s interview video, where question four asks about people he remembers from his job assignments. Jung-hoo replies that he doesn’t bother learning names, and that each job entails that he take on a false name that gets erased at the end.

Next question: What was the most difficult thing he’s encountered in his line of work? He smiles to himself and answers, “It was a job to find this woman… When I first met her I didn’t remember her face, because I had no interest. But this woman chased after me, fearlessly.” He chuckles at the memory of Young-shin confronting him in the bathroom.

He continues, “But from the start, I brought her pain. She can’t breathe at the mere thought of violence, but I didn’t know that. Thinking about it, after she met me, her life really got tangled up. She got hurt all the time, and even almost died. She’s someone who smiles easily too. Don’t forget that—fundamentally you’re a person who smiles a lot.”

Oh no, this is for Young-shin. Why does everything sound like goodbye now?

Back to Team Healer in the cafe. Moon-ho and ajumma tell Young-shin that the LA video she’s holding has taken a lot of lives: the reporter who took the footage died, and Go Sung-chul tried to sell it and died. Then President Hwang died to cover up Go’s murder. Young-shin uneasily puts the drive down, not wanting to hold it after all.

She wonders why Jung-hoo isn’t here yet, and ajumma informs her that he can’t come yet because he’s waiting for good news.

He’s waiting from a rooftop, snapping to attention when Detective Yoon calls ajumma… but the news is bad: That pipe was clean. No prints, and not even any blood.

Just then, Detective Yoon gets an alert that a file was submitted to the police station: a video confession regarding Park Dong-chul’s murder. Gah, things just went from bad to worse. Ajumma slams the laptop shut angrily, and the detective asks curiously what her relationship to Jung-hoo is. She says fiercely, “We’re citizens in the same country.”

But Young-shin has seen the brief snippet of the video, which rattles her composure. Ajumma tells Jung-hoo that soon a nationwide search will unfold now, and he sighs that things were too easy. Time for Plan B. When asked what that is, he says, “We have to make one.”

Ajumma tells him that Young-shin’s right here and heard the video. But despite her stricken nerves, Young-shin bucks up and says that they should catch Crazy Old Man before he gets caught: “If… just on the off chance… if catching him doesn’t work, then let’s run away together.”

He reminds her that she has a mother and father she’d have to leave behind. Young-shin tries to sound confident as she assures him that there are lots of places to hide, and that her father will understand, and that her mother doesn’t know who she is. Oh no, is this why Jung-hoo’s making that goodbye video? So she doesn’t have to give up her life?

He narrates, “What man in the world would turn his woman into a fugitive? Chae Young-shin really doesn’t know anything.”

Moon-ho wheels Myung-hee into the cafe, and Young-shin lights up to see her. From the look on Myung-hee’s face, it appears Moon-ho already told her the full story; she just holds out her hands to Young-shin, looking at her with full eyes.

Dad comes upon Myung-hee looking at a photo of Young-shin as a child with her adoptive parents, and she can’t hold back the tears. She tells him he raised Young-shin to be a bright, warm person, and he proudly shows her Young-shin’s childhood photo album.

Young-shin comes upon the sight and realizes, “My mother must know. I must take after her. You know how when I’m scared, I can’t speak, and I smile more. When you’re scared, you go off alone, don’t you? Is it because you don’t want to show that you’re afraid? Jung-hoo-ya, where are you, off on your own, and what are you doing?”

Jung-hoo sits in his car and opens the package he picked up from the Someday office—it’s from Russia. Inside he finds a black cell phone, which he compares to a white phone just like it. The black one lights up with a text message to Moon-ho.

Next he slips into Moon-shik’s house and barges into his study. But Moon-shik’s busy talking drunkenly to himself—or rather, the empty seat across from him, as though addressing his old friend: “You’ve loved for, what, ten years? Look at me, it’s been over twenty years, almost thirty.”

Through Moon-shik’s eyes, we see young Gil-han replying that you don’t measure love by time, but by sincerity and depth. Then Moon-shik looks up and sees Jung-hoo there, and invites him to join them for a drink, introducing him to “Uncle Moon-shik” in the empty seat. Jung-hoo corrects him, saying that he’s Moon-shik, but Moon-shik chides youngsters for getting names wrong: “I’m Oh Gil-han.” Well that’s twisted.

Secretary Oh tells him that Moon-shik isn’t like this constantly; he gets this way when he drinks after dinner. Jung-hoo supposes he’ll have to deal with the secretary today and distracts Secretary Oh with a phone while slipping a tiny device into his pocket. That accomplished, he lets Secretary Oh have his phone back.

Jung-hoo wants a meeting with the Elder, and holds out the return label from the package, informing him that he got a delivery from Russia. So make the call.

That gets him taken to the Elder’s bar, where he’s first stripped of all his devices. At the last second, he grabs Secretary Oh threateningly—and takes back that device before being pulled off. Haha, so sneaky and simple. He sticks the device under the bar counter.

Elder asks about the Russian package, and Jung-hoo asks if his arrest and confession will be rescinded if he hands it over. The Elder assures him that working for him would protect him from everything.

Jung-hoo holds up a cell phone—the white one—and says that it contains a video of people in a village collapsed and vomiting. He says that things are getting tough for him, because the only thing he wants is to live in peace with his woman, but they’re being terrorized at every turn. So he hands over the cell phone, and Manager Ahn checks that the video is on it. Jung-hoo confirms that he intercepted this phone, which was sent from the informant to Moon-ho, and the Elder congratulates him on a job well done.

This has got to be part of Plan B, and sure enough, Dae-yong drops off the black cell phone with Team Healer. On it is the video from the informant (cameo by Jeon Hye-bin).

Young-shin heads up to her room and finds Jung-hoo perched in the windowsill. She reminds him that she told him to use doors, but agrees to his suggestion to go for a drive. In the car, he holds out his hand for her to take, and as she does, she thinks, “When I take his hand, the feeling of It’ll all be okay now begins to spread out from his hand, through my whole body. It’s a marvelous, one-of-a-kind hand that tells me everything’s okay.”

As they cuddle on a rooftop together, Jung-hoo’s voiceover returns to his list of questions. What does he like? “High places, first snow, small hands, white blankets, those strands of hair.” All things that speak of Young-shin. As for his dislikes: “Everything that keeps me from being with those things.”

In the cafe, the Russia-sent cell phone starts to ring with an international call. Moon-ho answers the call from researcher Kim Jae-yoon, calling from China, who plans to go to Korea soon. She asks to meet at the airport, intending to fly back right after seeing him, since she has no visa to stay. But the call cuts out before she can say more.

Over at Double S, Manager Ahn has also identified Kim Jae-yoon, and now Jung-hoo is a part of the team as they strategize. The Russia research team was hired by the Elder to develop new bacteria, but Kim Jae-yoon destroyed everything recently, minus a few samples that she intends to bring to Korea. Ah, she’s a whistleblower.

I love that smug little smile Jung-hoo sends at Sang-soo and Yo-Yo, who now have to work with him. Sang-soo fumes, thinking of how much he suffered at the hands of the Healer, and raises his hand to slap his face… which Jung-hoo easily avoids, making Sang-soo slap Yo-Yo instead. Bwahaha. Let’s watch that again. Jung-hoo notes, “Nice teamwork.”

Manager Ahn also figures out Kim Jae-yoon’s movements and reports to the Elder, who replies that he only needs the samples. Not the woman.

Dae-yong hears this via Jung-hoo’s bug, which also informs us that the Elder is on thin ice within his own corporation. Stockholders will be discussing whether to keep him as CEO at the upcoming general meeting, and he is advised to present a case for himself. The Elder seethes at the idea of being ousted in a coup.

With the details they heard before disconnecting with Kim Jae-yoon, Team Healer manages to narrow down the airport she’s flying into. Young-shin is excited when Moon-ho assigns her to interview her, but ajumma points out that they’re missing the complication where Crazy Old Man will be sending his army of goons too.

And so, Moon-ho decides, “We’ll live broadcast.” After all, there are few people who would dare commit a crime on the air in real time.

Detective Yoon is surprised at the urinal by ajumma, who strolls right into the men’s room and tricks him into checking his fly. Lol.

She takes him to a cafe to show him the informant’s video, which makes him sputter in outrage—who’d be crazy enough to conduct these experiments on their own people? Ajumma tells Detective Yoon to participate in the mission, and dodges his repeated inquiries into Jung-hoo’s identity. Yoon guesses he’s the Healer and she’s the partner, but she won’t indulge him with a confirmation. He adds that there are people whose survival helps the world, and those whose deaths would help it. Which one is Jung-hoo?

On to the airport. Double S’s team arrives in full force, and Manager Ahn instructs Jung-hoo to stick close to Moon-ho, who doesn’t know he’s switched sides (or has he) and will still trust him. After Jung-hoo confirms the samples, she can die. Jung-hoo looks startled, but Ahn says he can leave the killing to the others.

Jung-hoo heads inside with Sang-soo’s guys, and from a distance, Detective Yoon watches the movement. It sure looks like Jung-hoo’s working with Double S…

So now we’re back at the end of the previous episode, where Team Healer joins up at the airport and struts in formation along the terminal. Ajumma hands out earsets, and the other three insert them in one synchronized motion. Then they split up to set up the mission, pretending not to see the Double S guards monitoring the perimeter.

Moon-ho sits down at a gate and indicates that Jung-hoo should join him, then says with an edge of nervousness to his voice, that things could get seriously dangerous. They should rethink the plan.

Jung-hoo says that this is already Plan B, not wanting to fail and need a Plan C. He asks if it’s Moon-ho’s habit to only think about things, and fail the real scenario because he’s only done simulations. Moon-ho cutely complains that Jung-hoo never loses an argument, but Jung-hoo calls out, “Uncle.” Aw, who’s tearing up?

Startled, Moon-ho asks what he said, and Jung-hoo quips that he won’t say it again.

Young-shin cordons off the ladies’ room and prepares her camera and interview station inside. Ajumma reports that the flight has arrived and passengers will be arriving soon, so they’re on standby for Kim Jae-yoon’s call.

Then Moon-ho gets the call. Both teams snap to alert and Manager Ahn instructs Jung-hoo closer to hear the call, warning him to keep his earpiece in. He listens in as Moon-ho introduces himself and says he’s waiting at the gate.

…And then we see Young-shin in the bathroom, answering another call and directing the caller to ignore Moon-ho and find her at this bathroom.

Kim Jae-yoon steps into view, and Moon-ho silently signals at her to move on. Then he greets a different passenger, pulling her along while the Double S guards quickly close in on them. The woman protests in bewilderment, and it takes several moments before the guards realize this is the wrong person. Moon-ho just pretends it was an honest mistake. Whoopsie.

That allows the real Kim Jae-yoon to slip away and find Young-shin in the bathroom. She hands over the last remaining bacteria samples as well as a flash drive containing her research materials.

Young-shin asks if she’d consent to an interview, though she doesn’t press when the researcher hesitates. But Kim Jae-yoon says that she’s in the middle of applying for asylum, and perhaps this interview would help.

At the gate, Moon-ho gets on his laptop and tells his team at the office to go. The Someday team launches the live broadcast feed. Ajumma keeps watch from above while the guards search for the researcher, and tells their backup to wait a little longer.

Jung-hoo, meanwhile, makes a quick change of clothing in the men’s room. He’s back in Healer mode, though I notice he still has his Double S earpiece in.

On air, Moon-ho introduces the topic of the day, kicking off with the shocking video footage of a village in health crisis. It made headlines last year, but nobody knew the cause of the epidemic—but now they have the proof that this was an intentional experiment.

The broadcast cuts over to Kim Jae-yoon, interviewing about her team’s secret research in discovering a bacteria, then working to intensify its poisonous effects. It would then be used to pollute water supplies, which would spur public outcry over the need for regulation—and private companies could then step in to profit.

Manager Ahn sees the broadcast and orders his team to search all the women’s restrooms. He also orders Jung-hoo into action—if they don’t stop the broadcast, he’s toast.

Jung-hoo barges into the bathroom, interrupting the interview, and locates the samples. Looking worried, Young-shin urges, “Let’s stop here.” He just shoots her a look indicating that she should continue as planned, which puts a look of dismay on her face.

Kim Jae-yoon panics and darts for the exit. Jung-hoo grabs her, then urges Young-shin again to keep going with the plan. She mouths a complaint at him, but complies.

Then Jung-hoo drags the researcher out, and Young-shin chases them out with the camera, filming Jung-hoo as he hands over the stuff to Manager Ahn.

That’s when the cops join the scene, and Moon-ho arrives to take over filming. In the chaos, Jung-hoo spies the scared researcher limping away, unaware that one last murderous thug is heading for her, reaching out with a syringe…

Jung-hoo races after them and grabs a cop’s gun, yelling for them to stop as he aims at the assassin. Everyone freezes—and then a shot rings out. But the assassin doesn’t fall. Shit shit shit.

It’s Jung-hoo who gets shot. Detective Yoon holds the smoking gun. Fu-uuuuck.

Jung-hoo lowers his gun, stunned. Young-shin and Moon-ho watch in horrified silence as he falls. Blood pools around him.

On the evening news, it’s Min-jae who delivers the report of a gunfight at the airport, which ended in one death. On the upside, all of the Double S guards are apprehended, including Manager Ahn. On the downside… well, you know. Jung-hoo-ya!

The official interpretation of events is that Jung-hoo was dispatched to kill the informant, and was aiming at her, not the (real) assassin. He was employed by Omega Holdings’ CEO (aka Elder), and now the LA video is finally explained: The Elder meets with a Russian scientist, which connects him to these experiments.

The slain gunman is identified as Park Bong-soo, but the photo is of the real Bong-soo, not Jung-hoo. For that, we can thank ajumma.

And then… we back up to the airport, when Jung-hoo changed clothes and slipped a blood pack into his jacket. I KNEW IT! You faking faker, earning your freedom the sneaky way! He practices his “I’ve been shot” acting in the mirror, heading off with a smirk.

Then after he falls and Moon-ho races to his side shouting his name, Jung-hoo breaks the moment by looking around—and Moon-ho keeps acting while shoving Jung-hoo’s face with his hand. HAHA. He winks at Detective Yoon, who didn’t kill Jung-hoo after all and may therefore continue to live.

Moon-ho shows up at the station to see Min-jae, offering her a coffee and a friendly smile. She takes it, and they walk off together. There’s hope for them yet.

Next, we check in with Young-shin, who’s driving a car (aw, she learned!) and wearing nerdy glasses while talking to Jung-hoo. He counts down, and when she holds a camera out her car window, he takes it from a passing motorcycle. Slick.

She pulls up in front of a house in time to catch a man walking out to his car. She bursts into interview mode, asking how he healed so quickly after being wheelchair-bound at court yesterday. Her interview request goes ignored, but at least she has her cameraman handy to record the exchange.

She turns to the camera in a flirty mood, and Jung-hoo snaps shots as he walks to her. Then they meet for a kiss, and Young-shin narrates her own list of favorite things. “What I like: The sound of his shutter, large hands, smiling eyes, large embrace.”

They sit on a rooftop at night, and she tells us her dislikes: “Everything that keeps me from being with those things.”

 
COMMENTS

Ahhh, what a lovely way to wrap up a perfectly lovely drama! Anyone who’s lived in dramaland for a while probably knows by now that you can’t count on anything until the show’s actually over—it’s rare enough to get a drama that’s consistently good, but even when you have one, nineteen great episodes are never a guarantee that the last won’t stab you in the heart or betray your trust. We’ve all been burned before. And yet, Healer delivered a truly satisfying finale that gave me everything I wanted, and for that I’m grateful and happy, and left basking in a warm afterglow.

The final episode had its moments of suspense and unease, but also tons of warmth and resolution that left me feeling full of hope for what the future holds for these people once the camera stops rolling. That’s the beauty of the show, in that I feel like there’s a fully fleshed-out world here that will keep existing after we’ve left it, and that we were just lucky enough to get to witness one of the more exciting episodes. In fact, if we all pause to wonder what Jung-hoo and Young-shin are doing now, I’m pretty sure we could all draw rich tableaus of possible scenarios, whether it’s working as an intrepid reporting duo (like their fathers! I love that they got to retain their Healer skills, but in a productive real-world way), or bickering about little things, or being unbearably cute. Oh what am I saying, they’ll be unbearably cute no matter what they’re doing. Preferably makin’ babies?

I loved all the characterizations, and felt that nobody was wasted. There were some characters I wanted a bit more time with, but that’s because the snippets we got were endearing, or maybe the actors are unexpectedly charming (Jong-soo, you’ll get your happy ending someday! Hopefully in a bright rom-com with a heroine who loves dopey heroes and physical comedy!). Narratively, they were well-employed, and I felt like they all fulfilled their functions well.

I did wonder how the finale was going to wrap up all the storylines in one short hour, and perhaps the only answer was that the threads couldn’t be tied tightly with a bow and tons of fanservice. (Then again, fanservicey finales always disappoint me, because they feel like an extra hour where nothing happens dramatically, and we’re just watching people being cute. I prefer finales that are actually crucial to wrapping up the story, cresting in the right places to deliver payoff.) But it was a nice touch, I thought, to show us flashes of the resolutions without playing them out wholesale onscreen, like Myung-hee finding out about Young-shin or meeting her father. I’d thought I wanted the full emotional display, but when we didn’t get it, I found I wasn’t disappointed. Sure, it would have been powerful to see Myung-hee hear the words, but as I said before, the characters have been drawn richly enough that I already know how that scene went, and drawing it out too much could have felt indulgent.

For instance, I didn’t want to waste screentime on characters I didn’t care about, so I’m happy to assume that the Elder goes down without needing to see that scenario. And Moon-shik’s short scene was a powerful way to leave him, in that hell of his own making. It’s grimly satisfying to know that he suffers in his own mind, and that he’s so far gone as to think himself as Gil-han confirms that he is aware of his crimes—that’s better than if he convinced himself he wasn’t actually guilty. The fact that he’s lucid for most of the day is extra haunting for him, because it’s not like he can escape into a fantasy and ignore reality. He’s literally living out his guilt every day and night, and that makes him pathetic enough that I find that a fitting punishment.

I suppose Healer wasn’t a perfect drama, although honestly right now I can’t come up with many things to complain about—I’m sure flaws exist somewhere, but in the overall scheme of things they aren’t things that linger; they don’t register as significant. The show worked on all the points that mattered to me, and more impressively, it never let me down. How awesome and rare is that? Even the best dramas can misstep in places or let you down in little ways—because frankly how could you avoid it in a 20-episode live-shoot schedule?—but Healer had a consistency and narrative integrity that remained constant at a high level. One strong episode, anybody can make. Twenty consecutive strong episodes that don’t flag in energy or tempo, which swell into crescendo and end on an uplifting, satisfying note? That’s a much more amazing feat. I kept waiting for that mid-season lull or that two-thirds-of-the-way needless angst, and it didn’t come.

So while it may not necessarily be perfect, it was, to me, a perfect drama-watching experience, striking that perfect balance point between fun and substance. And honestly, the experience was made richer by having you guys all here to squeal and thrill with, and doing so with a level of thoughtfulness, respect, and warmth that isn’t always a given, sadly. It’s never fun having your own fun marred by flies in the ointment, so I certainly don’t take it for granted and hope that it becomes the norm amongst our fandom! I thank you all for keeping the Healer craze positive, fervent, and full of love!

Things I like: her natural instant protective holding of his hands, his hand removed fron his glove to lift her beanie to stop her hurt misunderstanding, entwined hands to give her something to hold on to while waiting in silent, her hands that wiped his tears/doubts away, her hands pulling him back to come back even if "cannot find", their hand that spoke n promised "it is okay " when words need not be spoken, hands that hold while looking at future together finding the "Real me". Things I don't like,: my hands that aimlessly clicking "nothing" n couldn't type anything meaningful , in my Heal-less state since Feb 11.

'healer team?' i hate how some of them leapt into moral high ground. f.e. Myung-hee, you filthy hypocrite. in the previous episode whaddya meant by 'i tried to love you but now i know why i couldn't' really, now...she just wanted to live comfortaby and conveniently, after she'd been crippled and left without money by her husband's extracurricular activites and decided to lean on the (flower) delivery boy/driver who loved her unrequitedly all this time but wasn't refined enough for princess. so she paid no attention what's happening in the household and didn't ask any questions about what exactly happened that day three of the friends left and only two returned. because if she did... or if she'd only analyzed it throughly she couldn't have played the innocent housewife. and i don't think she can cover behind her 'brain damage' and sleep pills. i think her TBI is mostly affected her motor skills, nothing more. well now surely the younger bro will provide for her.
after all, his older bro paid for Moon-Ho's prestigious uni, not to mention helped him find a superb job in which he also enjoyed a privileged existence, where none could reprimand him using stronger words than 'uhh, maybe you shouldn't' or, - god forbid - fire him if he went too far, like what usually happens to regular people, f.e. the poor editor of someday news. i mean, maybe he'd be also a popular journalist growing up in an orphanage, but my guess is that he'd been a truck driver.

Jung-Hoo & Young-shin's daddies are both stink, they're the kind of people who start revolutions but unable to finish them just making everyone miserable on the way, never taking responsibility, just like when they let teacher to take all the blame and do jail time for all off them.

poor teacher...poor mon-shik and poor kids. the girl, having a mother who rather lies to herself, wishing her kid would be dead, (then she can't be blamed) and the boy, having a mother who left her kid and started a new life 'in the best interest of the boy'.

among those five friends only teacher and mon-shik are worth a second glance. the only real grownups are Young-shin's adoptive father and adjussi, teacher, hacker ajumma and the editor of someday news.

all the others the elder could have killed off, i couldn't care less.

It's shocking how your comment conjures up the image of a fire-breathing dragon, breathing fire with every breath, full of fury, anger, frustration.

It's shocking you came away from Healer with those sentiments.

But then, you know, you said - "all the others the elder could have killed off, i couldn’t care less" - actually, nobody here cares about how much you hate, loathe, abhor Healer.

I read your comment to find out what you have to SAY about Healer because from your first words, I got a shock BUT I do not care about how you feel.

So, essentially, if your intention in posting that comment was just to rant in the hope that anybody will empathise or agree with you because that would make you feel better, then all I can say is, I hope your effort has not gone to waste.

Hehe, sorry... I am just pissed off cuz that's not how you go on about opposing the gov. I wont go on about how to do these things correctly, anyho, howard fast, solzhenitsyn & akunin already wrote about it :P it's just... its not how you fight a corrupt gov. Those guys (kil ahn and co) are slow learners.i know a few political dissidents of the older generation who got decade(s) of jail time, and i have enormous respect for them...but those people knew what they were doing, didnt stupidly endanger others, letting them do jail time while they flaunt their new watches and play journalist, in general, behaving like a teenager on an anarcho syndicalist demo, having enormous fun.
But sorry about raining on your parade... in retorespective, 'twas silly

...and completelt unfit for this community. So I apologize. .. :(((

Wildfly, I don't think you really know how you go about opposing the Korean government during the 1980s and early 90's in Korea where people were jailed for exercising their right to speak, publicly assemble, for staying out beyond the state imposed curfew. Where the government didn't think twice about massacring normal citizens for alleged public demonstrations. The corruption that existed then, and that most likely exists now. JH and YS's fathers weren't "playing" journalist and they certainly weren't "playing" when they were killed. There is nothing in the story about how and why teacher went to jail for them all. It's one thing to say you don't like the drama but it's another to be arrogant about a time that you didn't live through and that you probably know nothing about first hand. There were many people who were like JH and YS's dad during that time in Korea and many were killed or jailed. Your comment that you know how to go about opposing the government just comes off flippant, naive and disrespectful.

I guess the way I look at this is through the lens of what the writer and director were trying to accomplish. It seemed to me that they were trying to strike a balance between portraying a world that had deep moorings in a dark reality, but they also didn't want it to be too heavy. And I thought hey executed that balance really, really well.

Yes, the show never did fully flesh-out the true dangers of the political underbelly. Or the prudence those dangers should have inspired. But, I didn't see the four friends as wholesale revolutionaries, as much as being intent on pursuing their careers as journalists with daring integrity. Relatively speaking, they were children encroaching into an adult world. Their undoing was their hubris of youth. The common trait of young people that's a combination of a sense of invincibility and (errant) belief that they understood more of the world than they really did.

The thing I appreciated was that the show was effective in raising awareness of a pattern of corruption. One that has ALWAYS existed, just in varying degrees. And my hope would be that people understand the world better as the result of it. And not be unwitting sheep in a world run by wolves.

0

Actually, with a little more reflection, I think that what you're thinking and what the show was saying could be two different things.

Are you saying 'revolutionary' in the context of seeking an outward change in elected officials and/or political parties? If so, I didn't think that was quite what the show was addressing. The show was addressing the shadow government. Specifically, the people/institutions/processes that run government decisions from the shadows.

It wasn't so much about determining who the elected officials will be, and garnering lucrative government contracts. But how they manipulate the process and public opinion to get officials elected and shape policy decisions. More specifically, the show's focus was on how the press is used by the folks in the shadows to achieve those ends. What we were shown was more a rough sketch of the methods of Bill Ayres / Rules For Radicals, than anything else. The only thing the show didn't draw a super-clear connection to is how those methods are used to shape unwittingly gullible citizens into voting blocks that swing elections and special interest groups which apply the political pressure that shapes policy.

So I guess it was about revolution, but not in the traditional understanding of the word.

@Anna @KDramaNewbie 'Angsty' 'love turned ti hate? Wow, you may be right, lol, which means the writer did a pretty good job. I feel really sorry for moon shik each time the healer-funs mob kicks him...

Cuz i think the real victim whose life wad ruined is mon-shik. After he was dragged into that mess and had to compromise and do the dirty work and side with corrupt people just to save everyone, losing his soul bit by bit, he at least should have had a wife and kids who love him unconditionally and not a crippled lady who doesnt love him but letting him take care of her.
If not for his unlucky star of meeting those two clowns and the princess, I bet he'd live perfectly happily, quietly by some womans side...he hadnt even the luxury to maintain his moral integrity. He had nothing left.

considering you took the time to write such a long and coherent comment, i'm going to assume that you are not merely being a troll haha

here are some of my own ideas about the points you brought up
1. the 1992 group were a bunch of idealistic young people. they believe in what they are doing, that it is for the good of the people, esp considering the oppressive environment they were living in then. i bet it was teacher himself who either offered to be the scapegoat or prevented the others from being caught, because he believed in their work, and their idealism. and he wanted his friends to be able to continue their fight

2. MH is not free from blame, that is true. he and MH also indirectly enjoyed the "perks" of MS betrayal, whether they know of it or not. even he himself admitted it, that he's not innocent. but that doesn't mean he has to stop trying to put things to right when and how he is able to. i dont think that makes him a hypocrite?

also MH was a respected journalist of his own right, that has nothing to do with who his brother is

1. I agree about 1992 when they were teenagers. Tho... I think teacher got such a long jail time which completely destroyed his life cuz they didnt catch the others. Maybe if they took responsibility, they could have got 1-2 years each. Or at least it could have thought them a lesson being less carefree... showing them that it's not one big game, and before they drag their friends and families into the cool and exciting freedom fighting, they should be at least more careful. Or they were really slow...? Usually explainig one time to a student is enough. ..

2. Maybe privileged boy should have done it on his own, maybe not. His bro kept him clean of off all the filth, only when he stuck his nose in it he was forced to try to make him work for the elder.

The only thing I blame him for, is not searching for the kid after he lost her. For that he has no excuse, nor even his obsession with MH.

0

Your points are valid, except that no one forced Moon-shik to go this far in his one-sided love. 30 years! He really was deluded. I assumed you are someone let down by the final episode.

Russia? Bacteria? In a tin box? Biohazard!!

Villain Moon-shik, such a damp squib.

Myung-hee and Ji An/CYS.. Why keep them apart for so many episodes?

MoonHoo, in a better show would have been more gray.

Healer and Ajumma, when did their working relationship change from employee/employer to Hero and girl friday?

So many plot holes, but a shining OTP! Well you cant have it all :(

And then there's CYS's reference about zombies! Maybe this was all deliberate!

0

1. The fathers of SJH and CYS were never painted as perfect. I think the episodes highlighted them as pretty foolish, carefree, naive and idealistic.

2. Anyone in myung hee's shoes would have done the same. And she did thank moon Shik. She knew what he gave up for her. And yet who is to deserve her love for lying to her that a living child is dead. Who is he to claim he love her, witnessing her seizures at the mere thought or mention of her "dead" Ji An? She may have lived in comfort but it was established to Moon Ho that she carried extreme burden and guilt of doing so at the early episode. Who could live in grief for 20 years without having some moments of ignorance and comfort and joy. Maybe she did love him a bit but why would she want to tell him that and let him hang on to her? She is letting him go so that she could find her missing daughter as she truly deserves that.

3. Did she ask to be crippled? Did she cause her daughter to go missing? No. Moon Shik may have saved and cared her but truly he didn't deserve to be her husband. If anything at all, he should just continue to be her friend as she made it clear she couldn't love him before they got married. With his wealth he could provide her a house, nurse without a marriage. She never led him on. She was honest about her feelings and it was him who chose to be by her side. Anyone else would have walked away from a crazy man like that with much less grace and screaming.

4. One may see the victim in Moon Shik but he has 20 years to look for the missing child. He could have done something about it. Or he could have arranged to give Myung Hee some peace about it and tell her to keep quiet for the safety of the child. He could even come clean about it to Myung Hee and reconcile them when he found out about CYS but no he didn't. If he had, she might have stayed on with him.

5. Yes he educated KMH but any wealthy brother would have done that. KMH was a teenager and in a vulnerable position so what is wrong to bid his time - get right edu, right job and right timing to fight back. It took him 20 years of hard word and nightmares but at least KMH did something about it.

6. KMS may have been a victim. But with his cunning and later acquisition of some power he could have laid traps to tip the police about the Elder and Sec Oh. But no he didn't. All he did was to kneel, bow and retaliate against SJH to keep his position and power.

The thing is, MH did lead moon shik on. It was perfectly clear to her that he is in love with her and I think she enjoyed the attention. She should have said something other than 'what a beautiful sunshine' if not right then when teachar informed her about MS's unrequited love, then later. Why let him pine after her, smile at him when he helped her, etc.if she really cared for him as a friend, she would speak with him and try to persuade him to overcome his feelings, maybe even cut ties so he could find a partner and live a normal life. She also wrote off teacher. Never once searched for him, inquired what happened to him after jail, if he needs help, etc. What kind of friend she is? The one receiving attention, never the one giving.
About not searching for the kid - I already wrote that yes, moon shik is at fault. But so is she. And yes, I believe he'd provided for her even if she wouldnt marry him. She shouldn't have agreed, first of all cuz she didnt love him. Its unfair to comply when you cant give anything to the marriage, no feelings, no kids, nothing. He offered marriage cuz he loved her, she should have declined cuz she didnt.

0

When they were young, what else could she say without hurting his feelings and pride except to look at the sky. If anything at all, she pitied him and maybe she thought pity was love or one day she could learn to love him. And many marriages were built this way and they did last. Perhaps she should have been bitchy to him but imagine if he had hated her, she would have died with JiAn.

A crippled woman who was bedridden for years would have been moved by such a dedicated man. The show didn't highlight whether she did urge him to marry another girl and have babies. But knowing her, she must have declined him for years with similar reasons and excuses and finally moon Shik's persistence paid off. His choice in marrying her doesn't make her a hypocrite. She was true to him until his repeated failures to protect the people she love made her leave. Do we want her to stay with him? What can we expect her to say?

Yes, he made bad choices. Yes he should find other woman, have kids... but he couldn't control his feelings - I salute him because he truly loved her with all his heart and soul. But they are not OTP. They were a loving couple because they had friendship, common grounds but it was shattered in many recent instances proving he was the hypocrite in hiding, lying, hurting and manipulating SJH, KMH and CYS. What can we expect Myung Hee to say to him? That she lived of his wealth built on lies and crimes? That she led him on after telling him the truth? That she was not bothered about his activities coz she was too naive? She never promised him anything. How could she offer him anything - a crippled woman who may no longer bear a child for him?

0

Shuerei, well said! I agree with your points as they are dead on.

0

Besides, Myung Hee said that she tried to love him. She was desperate and needed someone to care for her. She was a young mother who lost her husband and (seemingly) her daugther and was crippled on top.

Of course she accepted the love Moon Shik gave her, who wouldn't? She probably thought that she may come to love him like he really wants and now one can blame her for leaving him when she finds out he is not the person she thought he is. He lied to her, and it was not to her benefit but for his own. He was afraid Ji Ahn would lead Myhung Hee to reject him, that's why he didn't search for her again when she was lost and lied she died. If he wanted to help her, he should have said she lived in the beginning and should have taken her to Myung Hee.
He lied about his friend killing his other friend and even used his little brother that he should lie. Moon Ho feels guilt about that, but Moon Shik? He doesn't. He did everything to save himself, no matter how much he loved Myung Hee (obsession much), he betrayed his friends to save himself.

0

I could almost sympathize with Moon-Shik if it wasn't for the fact that when he found the girl and lost her again he felt the best thing to do was just to let her go. There was no reason for him to do that. The girl had not seen anything and was not a danger to anybody, and if he could protect her mother he was capable of protecting the child too. He even made up the lie that she was dead and went as far as creating a fake grave for her (as was discovered by his brother by accident). He did it so he could have her completely to himself without anything holding her back.

And may I remind you that Moon Shik had also taken part in the extracurricular activities. Of course, in the end he chose to live and protect himself and the people he loved, but leaving the child behind for his benefit earned him a place in hell for me.

Hi @wildfly

I lol to read your comment, and I love it. Not that I agree with all your points, but because you're brave to speak your mind which may offense the fans of Healer. I love you can point out what you think is wrong with this show, unlike someone who says the show isn't perfect but can't find the flaw, WTH!

1. You seem to pity MS but to me, he's my most hated character in here. He's truly a filthy hypocrite who twists things to fit his interests. Right at the beginning, he harbored a one-side love for MHee, and that love has turned into a sick obsession. If he's a good friend, he should give up and move on the moment MHee got married. Instead, he's still crazy about her to the point that he didn't want to visit her in hospital when she gave birth. What kind of friend is it? His obsession made him into a jealous man who is unable to be happy for his friends and be content of what he has. The 1992 incident is the opportunity for him to claim what he wants. The Elder and the whole thing about seeling his soul to save everyone else are bullshit. Those are just his excuse to justify the wrong things he did to satisfy his desires. Therefore, I don't think MHee is hypocrite. Because of MS's obsesssion with her, he orchestrated the whole thing just to have her for his own, to fulfill his sick love. He fed her the lies, told her the child was dead hoping that she can devote herself to him only. He betrayed her husband, let him to his dead to "save" her for himself. He imprisoned her in the house, tracking her movement to make sure she stay in his possession. He abadoned her child, then tries everything later to keep her away from her mom just to deprive the motherly love MHee yearns for. Knowing MHee anguished pain for the guilt of abadone her child years after years, he's ok with that as long as he can have her all by himself.

2. You put Moon Ho into your "bad guys" catergory, but to me, MH is my most love character in here. He was wrong to keep silent at his brother's wrongdoings when he was young, but then, intead of staying put and making excuses to live a lavish life his brother paved for him, e tried to set things right. He's the initial that starts all the events that makes others'life turn right. Because of his persistent to find Jin-an, YS has the change to know her real parents and mother and child reunite. Because of him hiring Healer, YH has a chance to know about his father and clear out his father's name instead of living as someone who has his father killing the best friend for money. Because of his persistent in fighting the bad guys, the Elder's clan is bought to justice, ahjumma can be out of her lonely lair and live normal live, Healer can change his purpose in life and be normal. And of course, best of all, because of MH, JH and YS have a chance to meet and fall in love and be one of the best couple in Kdrama. MH also loves MHee, but his love is totally different from his brother's sick...

...love. MH loves MHee dearly like his own sister. He's truly happy to see her have a happy marriage unlike MS who was only jealous. He genuinely loved her kid unlike MS who didn't even want to visit them in the hospital. He happily took over the babysitter despite his brother's disapproval. Later, his love is extended to JH as well. He's proud to see him doing well, he took all the punches out of JH's frustration, he encouraged JH to take YS away for her safety, he's happy when seeing JH and YS so in love, and the way his face lit up when JH called him uncle is priceless.

3. I totally agree that the two dads were so stupid, senseless and irresponsible. It's ok they behaved like that when they were in college. But 12 yrs later, they had family,have a child, became a well-known reporters, yet they still behaved like a couple of daredevil teens seeking for a thrill drive. I also can't stand JH's mom. What an irresponsible mother who chose to abadon her kid with no valid reason at all. She didn't even know he was in detention center and out looking for her

What a silly comment... How old are you?

There is THOUSANDS of idealistic pople who are killed and tortured RIGHT NOW in the world but they are in the wrong because "they’re the kind of people who start revolutions but unable to finish them just making everyone miserable on the way, never taking responsibility, just like when they let teacher to take all the blame and do jail time for all off them." As if it's EASY to start a revolution and succeed!!!

As in 12 y.olds? Then torturing your mommy in front of you to get answers? you still wont tell where those three 'revolutionaries' hiding, allowing them to escape to the city and forming an uderground cell...? I sometimes ask myself
What would I do in a case like this. ..

@ wildfly, recaplovers, & shuerei

Great comments & discussion here! I find myself wavering between pitying MS or hating MS more, haha.

Nevertheless, I feel that MS falls in the camp where he may still be "redeemable". Plenty of drama villains have done a lot worse and end up getting redeemed; its just a pity that we ran out of episodes to see if this would happen (seems to me that the writer intentionally made MS quite grey in order to give herself a chance to redeem him if the show was extended; as a matter of fact, there's actually heaps of scope in the story for her to extend without sacrificing the pacing).

Having said this, with the scene where MS thought he was Oh Gil Han, I think that the writer is hinting that MS will end up continuing down the delusions, rather than the path of redemption.

In any case, I'd like to imagine that Myung Hee's relationship with Moon Shik was not entirely without love. It might not be the jump-in-the-bed-lets-bonk type of love, but judging from their interactions in the earlier episodes, I do think that they shared a genuine affection for each other. Therefore, Myung-Hee's parting comment of not being able to love him could well have been made in anger, but not from the heart.

So if it helps any, wildfly, maybe you can imagine Myung-Hee returning to MS in the future, helping him break free of his delusions, setting him down the path of redemption, and finally earning her love.

Or will that peeve you off more?

P.S. you wouldn't happen to fall in the camp who thinks that young Moon Shik is hot, would you?

Haha, yes I wouldn't like her returning to him, his one sided love is a perfect example how bad it can be and turn to unhealthy obsession.
I grow up believing that platonic love is better than none and it can be inspirational, especially if you chose your role model well... but its not really true. ..
And for redemption, I think you need people to love and care for you, I think his are more like rats who jump the sinking ship.

As about moon shik being hot... uhh... you scare me :))) he really isnt. I watch dramas for character dev. And while hotness of an actor helps (would never deny it) it does nothing without a well written character and acting skills. But I do pity him, hes. I hate when people being lynched just for being forced into situations not of their making and others distance themselves just to keep their hands clean.

@ sungsta

1) Thanks for sharing the possibilities. MH might return to care for him as a "friend"... But it's also possible for her to be with CYS's father. Both love CYS and he needs a woman!

2) Young Moon Shik was clean cut and nice looking. When he aged, he retained a dignified outlook. Who knows if Gil Han didn't exist in their lives, Myung Hee might-might-might consider him when they were young. When her hubby presented the flowers, she instantly credited MS for his thoughtfulness and actions. Yes you are right, while she may not have the hots for him when they were young, she certainly had good feelings" for him then.

3) I really love SJH. He's very forgiving - the tolerant gestures in dealing with Sec Oh (killing Teacher) and MS (accusing his dad) ... and framing him a couple of times ... he just focused on justice without resorting to vengeance or violence.

4) Myung Shik's redemption. Ok maybe after he confessed his sins and make restitutions in this lifetime...and someone needs to get rid of Sec Oh. MS has no hope if another evil elder is appointed. He is probably too far to make a u-turn. But who knows..

0

Lol, at first I had a visceral reaction to your comments but later I agree. I do feel sorry for MS. I feel sorry he is a weak person who was easy prey for the Elder. There was no indication that MH did not like him bc his parents owned a junkyard or that she would like him if he were successful. I also don't think that "sacrificing his soul" (which on the surface sounded like it may have been for MH but in reality was for him) entitles him to love and happiness. That is like every second lead who thinks that being nice to the lead means the lead must love them back.

I also would not call MH a hypocrite. One of her medical symptoms was depression. After being hospitalized for a year and being completely broken both physically and emotionally, I would be hard pressed to expect her to be her old, cheery, idealistic self. It sounded like she shut herself off from the world so I do not expect her to go searching for Teacher. I also don't fault her for accepting MS's help. She made it clear she did not have feelings like that for him. If he still wants to be with her, that is his choice. She is handicapped and has nothing; I am no saint and would have selfishly taken up his offer too.

I was also ok with her sunset comment. Teacher made things awkward with his revelation so she made a noncommittal response to defuse the tension. Since MS didn't say anything outright to her, I would have felt awkward and a bit arrogant telling him, "oh sorry, I don't feel that way." And she married someone else. I don't see how that could be leading anyone on.

I do agree the two journalist friends were immature and naive. To me it felt like the writer forgot they were older and wrote them as if they were still in their college days. It might be easier for audiences who only catch such a small glimpse of them to maintain the feel that was initially established when they were first introduced. In their defense, I also don't think they had any idea what a huge operation they were tackling and how shadowy it was.

You know what, after writing this comment, I don't feel that bad for MS anymore, haha! I forgot he was also kind of the catalyst for why JH's mom left him (not totally clear but it seemed like after he warned her away from the truth she felt like being with her son would bring him danger?) and MS made MH lie. I think the Elder just gave him the opportunity to unleash what must have been an inner sneakiness. Remember, he only helped the pirate radio bc he liked MH, not bc he cared about the ideals. He is tricksy this one!

@ maripaz

Very interesting.

I guess the writer is showing us that some journalists are too idealistic and naive for their own good (and others)... Perhaps wildfly is trying to point out some negative outcome from freedom of speech / press, cowboy journalists...

... I recall reading Terry Goodkind's book - harm may result from good intention. In this case, the two dads had good intention to expose the truth but ignorance and recklessness led to fatal repercussion. In contrast, our new healer team members have patience, strategy and caution aided by what you highlighted - knowledge vs ignorance...

I like your analysis about Myung hee not looking for SJH's mom and Teacher.
Rock bottom self esteem?
Self hatred for losing her daughter? Self isolation as the world had betrayed her?
Self absorbed in her grief?
Maybe teacher didn't want to be found?

I also agree about the sunset comment. In fact..... if if if Moon Shik had confessed to her, I wonder whether she might consider...Gil Han would be awfully mad but why didn't he say something?

0

yep, sure. moon shik shouldn't have warned her, sending that creep, he just needed to leave her in the elder's good hands. and no, dropping your kid in the waste bin is not the best solution.
if teacher hadn't found him...
no, his mother was warned to keep her mouth shut. she could have changed her name, switched town (or country) better than leave her kid with gram who is two steps from the grave. sure, everything is for the kid's own good. they're all victims, sure... both moms. (why did they give birth in the first place i cannot imagine). i mean... taking in a cute puppy then
throwing the big dog out into the cold is bad enough, but if the b**ch (as in female dog) does that to her own puppy...
why are the korean dramas full of cruel parents? in KMHM - abuse... in JHM... ditto.

For me, the point where I began to be disappointed in this show was exactly this episode, because of the way it handled the politics. I live under the aegis of a fabulously corrupt government, in a privileged lifestyle, cheek-by-jowl with those who got ripped off in the equation. It's not like I don't notice or care, but it's also not like I can go haring off to do something about it right this second. I don't have the right skill set, I know that I have no idea of the scale and depth of the wrongness, and I know that I'm not prepared to devote my life to the problem.
That attitude, the hypocrisy of the upper class - those reasonable-looking decisions, are what I saw portrayed here: letting your mysteriously rich bosom friend pay for your healthcare; fighting wrongdoing the comfortable, noble way as a high-earning journalist; thinking it's alright to use an in-demand skill set for anyone with the cash - it's all exposed, all dealt with. What you say you can't stand, I enjoy. The fact that you have an internet connection by which to wriyte this means that you're as much of a hypocrite, possibly through no fault of your own. The world is unfair; this is what that looks like. Reward isn't proportionate to suffering; nor is damage to mistake. Illness, tiredness, a blind eye here and there, a kid lying because his hyung told him to; feeling like you deserve healthcare, opportunity, peace.
The catch is that no solutions are propose, yet they want you to feel like a payoff has been reached. All the moral questions were tied, in this plot, to what the team was going to do about omega holdings; and if they only made a dent, I wanted it to be recognized as only that. If they didn't care and cut their losses, I wanted them to acknowledge that that's what they were doing. If they ended up deciding it was moral outside the law, I wanted to know all the why's and wherefores. Instead we got a death cop-out you saw coming from a mile off, some wasted screen time on an interview video that doesn't look like it's anything other than archival material, no hint of what identity jung-soo is even operating under right now, or what detective yoon is doing about his five-year hunt for a serial criminal team that includes his old boss and crush. Nothing at all about just how much of omega holdings has been exposed, or what retaliation we can expect once their internal reorg is done with. (Even the show acknowledged this problem, in an earlier episode, when moon-ho explained that the role of Elder was an office, and the person occupying it could change without much trouble.)
I think at this point the only way I could leave this feeling satisfied was if they plan a season 2. If that happened, I'd call every untied thread purposeful, consider it masterwork, and wait with bated breath. I've loved this writer too much over these monthsnot to give him...

We should thank the writer for What-Not-To-Do
1. Rushing to cover a story without adequate backup
2. Leaving kid in a pile of rubbish instead of neighbor etc
3. Running away without alerting the police
4. Having a dangerous job after marriage
5. Pining after buddy's girlfriend or wife
6. Don't marry a reckless journalist
7. Stay away from creepy secretary
8. Abandon someone else's child
9. Make sure no one spike your drink
10. Don't chase after a suspicious man unless he is SJH...
What else.....

@wildfly, agree, my first post here after seeing the whole show in 2 days,

Somehow, initially, I thought the direction was Mon-Shik redeem himself, and plot with his brother to take the Mayor thing, this is when he brings his brother to meet the others senior in a diner, the first time

Didn't Mon Ho buys Some Day with his inheritance from courtesy from "Elder" co. lmao, and Secretary Oh bugs Mon-Shik, but Mon-Shik just let his brother play around with fire

I guess in drama land, poor Mon-Shik not able to redeem himself at all, and given a dilution end, not bad for him, he already died since he sold his soul to Elder co.

Myung-Hee a damsel in distress, poor Mon-Shik love the wrong girl, I bet only in drama land. Can't blame her, also Mon-Shik didn't find the Ji-Ahn when he lose her, maybe he wasn't try very hard back then

The show didn't delve much on those farmers, the Elder can be easily replaced as they mention,

The best revelation was The Detective from Cyber Crime has a ah Jumma crush since she left, lmao

Damn, the had to kill the poor teacher, also, the crime that the teacher did was some national security crime? Was it cyber security crime? I don't know, doesn't matter,

From kdramalover/kay:

@kay, I really wanted JB to read your comment because you worded it perfectly on what each of us felt ! So am posting it from previous recap!

'Javabeans, thank you.

I have said it countless times before so I’m sure you know how thankful I am to you :

for the recaps that I cannot do without while watching Kdramas,

for creating this one-of-a-kind website for all Kdrama lovers,

for sharing your keen intellect through your exceptional observation, insight, thought-provoking opinions and totally
spot-on ideas/suggestions,

for your magnanimity in the face of less than pleasant and at times downright disrespectful comments/opinions/rantings/attitude/actions by commenters.

In short, for everything you have done for us, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In fact, watching the Ahjumma in Healer, the thought that crossed my mind is this –

you remind me of the Ahjumma –
both gutsy,
both super-smart,
both mind-blowingly hilarious,
both tough on the outside, but soft on the inside,
both super-super-super-super-super-awesome !!! '

@kay

I totally feel she is like Ahjumma in brushing off appreciations and love ! :P

Remember how she used to say she doesnt like snuggles and only snuggles her cat in one of her odds and ends post????

Lol, Sorry JB for analyzing you, I dunno why am a little unable to separate you from Ahjumma right now!

0

@Divyrus ;)

Yes! You brought up a very good point about JB being so similar to Ahjumma with her brushing off compliments and love! Hahahaha!!

But I don't remember seeing her post about not liking snuggles and only snuggles her cat in one of her Odds and Ends postings because I've not had the time read all her Odds and Ends threads. But since you remember it, then it just proves how similar she is to Ahjumma! You are right again!! ;)

@kay wow, in speechless really. That is too much sweetness, I'm afraid anyone watching might just want to throw something at us lol. ;)

All I can say is thank you very very much for your sweet words again. And I'm glad that a show has introduced us and somewhat grew a friendship and an obsession over kdramas. I humbly thank you for your sweet words, and can't wait to see more dramas with you and the rest of the beanies here. It was well worth the time ❥ ♡ ♥ ღ ɞ ❀ ✿ ❁ ✾ ✽ ❃ ❋♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♭

Thanks a lot for the lovely recaps JB. I enjoyed this drama more than any other to date, though i cant pinpoint the reason. It was fun reading your recaps, lurking in soompi, watching it raw and watching it again and again with subs. It took up all my free time and still left me thirsting for more.the drama has been fun and reading various comments about it just as much fun.

I just read your recap.

I agree full-heartedly that this was to me also a really "perfect drama-watching experience." *contented sigh*

"... And honestly, the experience was made richer by having you guys all here to squeal and thrill with, and doing so with a level of thoughtfulness, respect, and warmth that isn’t always a given, sadly. It’s never fun having your own fun marred by flies in the ointment, so I certainly don’t take it for granted and hope that it becomes the norm amongst our fandom! I thank you all for keeping the Healer craze positive, fervent, and full of love!"

Thank YOU JB, I'm glad you had fun with us!! I'm so happy that you've been on this journey with us, it's been greatly enriched because of you as well :) and I am glad that you feel our love, because it does include you. All our wishes, hugs and love extends from us to you, always. May you be blessed abundantly with all that's good! I'll be reading ya!! :)

Aww @javabeans, you're making me tear up. Thank you for thanking us fans in your recap. I'm really am an emotional mess - years of sadness for this drama ending and tears of happiness for you and this fandom. A large part of Healer-fandom would never have been possible without your site and recaps, so I'm so grateful for not only your brilliant recaps, but for you providing us with a platform we can all squee together! For someone like me, who doesn't like to go on Soompi (makes my phone crash a lot), dramabeans is the best place to be. Your site is really great and the people here (your readers) are so friendly, nice, and respectful to each other. From a silent readers for years and now a de-lurker for the very first time, I felt so welcomed by this community. And not once have I ever came across a negative comment for any drama. I love how there's no bashing but just a lot of passionate fans who are very literate as well. I'm lost with words to say, so I should say thank you again.

Much love from your reader,

Bongsookie ❤

Cheers to you, JB, for recapping this DAEBAK drama - and making the initial recaps SO great that they drew in a lot of people who would probably have passed on this drama, including me! I am TRULY thankful to have watched this drama and joined in on some of the fervor and excitement that came with watching it - and LOVING it! I haven't enjoyed a drama like this in a really long time, if ever. Kudos to writer-nim for doing such a frantastic job all the way through - writing great characters and a fun story - hope other writers take some notes on futurenKdrama relationships. I'm REALLY gonna miss Healer - what a great ride. It's been a blast! Love JCW and a new fan of PMY and YJT! Thank you so much!

Thank you so much javabeans for your Healer recaps and comments. They were just perfect and expressed everything I have felt throughout the series. I thought the end of Healer would make me feel so depressed but it ended in such an uplifting note that I was in too much of a high to feel any unbearable sadness. Your final comments brought a tear my eye though. It was so much fun to share all the squeals with everyone here or just to know that others weren't functioning properly in their daily routines because of this amazing production. You are all so friendly and fantastic people!! Good bye Healer and thank you :)

:) i just love it that Healer gets so much reaction. not the squeeing, tho that's great, too. but i mean the thinking and reflecting and outpouring of ideas. kudos to the writer, this show gives its take on real life social problems and dilemmas, and more importantly, it raises more questions. in this day and age of so much fluff and commercialism and we keep seeing shows with little substance, aren't you glad there's something like this? it's provocative in its own way, and i love it. AND I LOVE HOW YOU LOVE IT, JB.
