Doctors: Episode 12

For some problems, time is the best cure. Stepping back from a relationship or an event can allow people to reflect and analyze. Other times, a bit of separation can help solidify feelings and encourage people to muster up courage to take a step forward. Whether time helps a person reflect or gather him/herself, in the end, there still needs to be an action taken for a solution to arise.

 

 
EPISODE 12 RECAP

Little Ji-hong cries while on a forest path, apologizing to his father. Adult Ji-hong places a hand on his shoulder, and hugs his younger self. Hand in hand, they make their way to a columbarium, and Little Ji-hong disappears.

Standing in front of a picture of himself and Director Hong, Ji-hong narrates, “The cells that make up a human are always in a state of instability. To live is to be unstable. In the end, the essence of life is change. Father always said this, ‘Deciding things on your own, taking responsibility by yourself is the life of a man.’ Now it’s starting again.”

Three Weeks Later.

Psycho Husband sings a song as he wipes his wife’s hands and feet. He says, “I love you,” but she closes her eyes in response. Knowing that she’s avoiding him, Psycho Husband orders her to look at him, but when she continues to refuse, he chucks the towel at her.

Seconds later, Yoon-do and a couple of doctors, including Hye-jung, enter the room to check on the wife. Psycho Husband returns to his act and asks about his wife’s recent inability to open her eyes. Yoon-do does the routine checks of her mobility, and Hye-jung notices the husband’s disinterested expression in the background.

After checking on the wife, Yoon-do complains to Hye-jung about Ji-hong’s absence since he’s in the U.S. to sort out Director Hong’s will. When he asks about Ji-hong, Hye-jung admits that she hasn’t contacted him all these weeks because she thought he’d like to be alone, and Yoon-do shakes his head. He tells her that this is the perfect time for her to enter Ji-hong’s life, and Hye-jung stares at Yoon-do with expectant eyes. She asks him out to lunch for more love advice, but he realizes how foolish it would be for him to help her out with Ji-hong and declines.

Ji-hong arrives in Korea, and Pa-ran picks him up the airport. Today’s also the day of Director Jin’s inauguration at the hospital, but Ji-hong refuses to attend since he didn’t even go when his father was appointed. At the hospital, Tae-ho attends the inauguration, which starts off with a video remembering Director Hong’s contributions. Director Jin then takes the podium: The beginning of a new reign.

In the residents’ office, Nurse Su-jin brings a stack of rice cakes and commemorative towels. Kyung-joon arrives just as Joong-dae opens a box of rice cakes, and the former berates the latter for always eating. However, once Kyung-joon’s alone, he steals a stack of rice cakes and towels for himself.

Psycho Husband presents snacks to the nurses and doctors for taking care of his wife, and the nurses swoon over him. Kang-soo and Joong-dae don’t share in their sentiment, and Young-kook arrives, asking what all the ruckus is about. The nurse next to Nurse Su-jin turns a bright shade of red at the sight of Young-kook and quickly runs away, which Seo-woo notices. So that’s who she has a crush on!

Seo-woo’s mother visits Yoon-do in his office, and directly confronts him about Seo-woo. Yoon-do tells her that it’s over between them, and he’ll deal with his family by himself. Seo-woo’s mother advises Yoon-do to reconsider, but her words fail to sway him. She sighs since she just wants Seo-woo to have a happy life as a woman rather than inherit the hospital, which she thinks will only cause more stress.

In Myung-hoon’s office, Director Jin asks his son what he’ll do with Tae-ho, but Myung-hoon prefers having capable men like Tae-ho and Ji-hong working underneath him. The thought of being their boss makes him feel like he’s on cloud nine.

Their meeting is interrupted by Chief Kim, and Myung-hoon doesn’t hide his displeasure. Chief Kim grovels to Myung-hoon, but when flattery fails, he attempts veiled threats instead. Chief Kim hints that he kept Grandma’s anesthesia records, but Myung-hoon warns him to protect his current position.

Hye-jung looks over her messages with Ji-hong, and replays the dog emoticon he sent. She thinks back to his words that he makes decisions alone, but decides to call him anyways. Unfortunately, her call goes unanswered since his phone was left behind in his office. Meanwhile, the reason for her stress is in the hospital lobby, and serendipitously bumps into Chief Kim.

Chief Kim tries to ignore the elephant in the room, but Ji-hong asks him directly if he remembers Grandma’s surgery now. Chief Kim tells Ji-hong that his memories are fueled by kindness. Ji-hong replies back that negotiations are still open, and adds, “I’m normally a kind person.”

Hye-jung receives a call from Kang-soo who tells her that Ji-hong is here. She goes to meet him, but Ji-hong doesn’t say anything to her. Nurse Su-jin meets the wife, and Psycho Husband excuses himself for a moment. Once she sees him leaving, the wife moves her finger, but Nurse Su-jin doesn’t hear her internal plea: “He’s not my husband.” Spit-take, what!?

Ji-hong makes his rounds and visits the wife. He goes through the usual tests, and makes eye-contact with her. She blinks at Ji-hong, as if to send a message, and he stares at her, feeling that something’s not right. Psycho Husband returns, and Ji-hong tells him the good news: His wife is slowly regaining her motor skills.

In the hallway, the husband asks Ji-hong if she’ll make a full recovery, and Ji-hong tells him that he can’t be sure. Ji-hong notices the husband’s peculiar reaction, almost as if he’s glad she can’t move. Once the husband leaves, Ji-hong asks Hye-jung about the patient’s behavior, but she hasn’t noted anything unusual.

Kyung-joon meets Seo-woo, and tells her that she’s been called to assist Yoon-do in his emergency surgery. She’s shocked, and waits for Yoon-do outside the operating room to verify in person. She wonders why he’s not calling Hye-jung while Ji-hong is away, and Yoon-do says that he won’t play that dirty. Besides, Ji-hong is already here.

Yoon-do is washing his hands before Seo-woo, and chides her for coming later than the staff doctor. He reminds her that she’s not an eighteen-year-old girl anymore, so she doesn’t have to live up to her father’s expectations. Yoon-do teases Seo-woo some more, trying to lighten her mood.

Myung-hoon is walking around the hospital with his entourage, and Tae-ho watches from above with Ji-hong. Tae-ho states that it’s the new “Jin” era, and Myung-hoon waves at them from below. However, his face falls, and he tells his secretary to call Ji-hong.

Ji-hong meets Myung-hoon in a hallway, and Myung-hoon asks why he’s digging into his past. Ji-hong asks if he even remembers Grandma’s surgery, and Myung-hoon smiles: “I only remember things that make me happy.” He tries to bridge the gap between them, citing that he loves smart people, but Ji-hong just laughs along.

Kang-soo tells Hye-jung of a new traffic accident patient, and Ji-hong is called in to operate. When he stops by to examine the patient, he avoids eye-contact with Hye-jung and merely tells her to prepare for surgery.

As they’re washing their hands, Hye-jung breaks the silence and asks how he’s doing since she was worried about him. Ji-hong gives her a hollow response, and during the surgery, Ji-hong continues to avoid eye-contact. Afterwards, he leaves without a word, and Hye-jung watches him go, though she obviously wants to say something to him.

Hye-jung hesitates outside Ji-hong’s office, and In-joo arrives. She wonders why Hye-jung doesn’t go in, but Hye-jung tries to excuse herself since In-joo must have an appointment. In-joo tells Hye-jung that she doesn’t have an appointment, and explains that Ji-hong is just a male friend. Thus, at this moment, if she were to choose meeting with Ji-hong or Hye-jung, she would want to meet Hye-jung.

Hye-jung and In-joo share a drink together, and In-joo confesses that she wanted to meet Hye-jung but didn’t want to contact her. Hye-jung wonders why she didn’t want to call, and In-joo admits that she was afraid to confront her childish past.

She apologizes to Hye-jung for her past behavior when she’d pushed her to distance herself from Ji-hong, and Hye-jung teases In-joo, asking if she should forgive her. In-joo says that she feels like she’s in a mental stupor, and the two of them laugh together—water under the bridge.

Ji-hong gets a text message from Yoon-do asking about that promised dinner, and Ji-hong calls him, asking where he is, then. Ji-hong arrives at Yoon-do’s apartment where Pa-ran is already making himself at home. Yoon-do offers making ramyun, and Ji-hong and Pa-ran give out picky instructions for their instant noodles. Pa-ran tells Ji-hong that In-joo is coming later, and Ji-hong complains that Yoon-do’s apartment is bigger than his.

In-joo arrives at the apartment complex drunk, and Hye-jung tries to pick her up from the ground. Drunk In-joo bellows into the night for Ji-hong and Pa-ran, and Hye-jung stares at her like she’s some crazy lady (which I guess she is). The boys come running out, and Yoon-do notices Hye-jung while she notices Ji-hong. Yoon-do smiles like a goof, saying hi to Hye-jung, but Pa-ran orders his nephew to help him with In-joo since she’s now yanking out his hair for calling her a wench.

Hye-jung is left alone with Ji-hong, and he asks if she wants to stay. She says that she’ll leave, and when Ji-hong simply says all right then, Hye-jung bursts out in indignation: “All right then?!” She storms away, but Ji-hong grabs her hand to stop her.

Twirling her around, he asks if she actually wants to talk with him, and they go into his apartment. Hye-jung notices the claw machine (it is hard to miss), and Ji-hong makes tea for them. Sitting at his dining table, Hye-jung says that she’s sorry because she doesn’t know how to comfort people in grief.

Ji-hong blurts out, “I missed you,” and Hye-jung stares at him in shock. He continues and says that he kept thinking of her, but he waited for her to contact him first. In the past, he always acted first if he wanted something, but meeting Hye-jung has taught him that sometimes waiting can be the best direct action.

Relieved, Hye-jung apologizes to Ji-hong, too. She wanted to stay the same, yet she pressured him to change. She asks if she can enter his life, and says that he doesn’t have to change because she just wants to be by his side. He says yes.

With the discussion over, Hye-jung gets up to leave, but Ji-hong wonders aloud if it’s all right for him to stop her. Hye-jung is still angry at him for scaring her and not answering her calls all day, and Ji-hong apologizes since he was genuinely unaware that he missed her calls. He asks if she didn’t want to play the claw machine, and Hye-jung shyly smiles, admitting that she does.

Hye-jung plays with the claw machine, and Ji-hong offers to help her, holding her hand in the process. Suddenly aware of their closeness, they awkwardly break apart. Hye-jung sits on top of the claw machine and gingerly touches a strand of Ji-hong’s hair. After minutes of staring, Ji-hong finally swoops in and kisses Hye-jung. They kiss, and they kiss, and then the screen fades to black, omo!

All dressed for work, Yoon-do steps into his living room and stares aghast at Pa-ran passed out on the floor and In-joo sleeping on his couch. He yells at his uncle to get up for work, and addresses In-joo as “Aunt,” telling her that it’s already 6:50.

In-joo groggily wakes up and gives Yoon-do the side-eye for calling her “Aunt,” which he argues is accurate since she’s his uncle’s friend. She says he’s bigger than her and old-looking, and calls him rude. She gets up and declares that she’s taking a shower so Yoon-do should squeeze some fresh orange juice for her. Yoon-do’s jaw is on the floor (while I’m on the floor laughing), and Uncle Pa-ran gets up to ask for orange juice, too.

Psycho Husband is on his laptop, trading stocks, and after finishing, goes over to his wife, asking if he looks cool today (never has psycho been such an apt nickname). The doctors visit, and Ji-hong notices the patient crying (seriously, she’s been stuck with this crazy man for over three weeks!). Once outside, he asks Kyung-joon if the guardian can be separated from the patient, and Kyung-joon says that it can be arranged.

Next thing you know, Kyung-joon and Kang-soo visit the husband and ask about buying stocks. They drag the husband out of the room, and as soon as they leave, Ji-hong and Hye-jung enter. While Hye-jung stands guard, Ji-hong tells the wife to blink once for yes and twice for no. He asks if she’s uncomfortable, and once she answers yes, he asks if it has to do with her husband. She blinks once.

Hye-jung alerts Ji-hong that the husband is returning, and Ji-hong takes off her pulse oximeter. Psycho Husband is surprised to see them, and Ji-hong pretends they came because of her alarm. He tells the husband that the patient needs CT scans, and they successfully bring her to a separate room.

Using a Hangul board and their blinking communication system, the wife spells out “attacker.” They return her to her room, and Hye-jung tells Ji-hong that she notified the police. Curiously, the patient is actually filed as a missing person, and they wonder why her parents declared her missing when she was with her husband. (He’s a kidnapper, too!?)

Psycho Husband stares at the wife, and asks if she remembers the first time they met. In flashback, Psycho Husband waited for her outside of her workplace, and visibly discomforted by his actions, she told him to stop. Instead, he got on his knees with a bouquet of flowers and declared his undying love for her.

Back in the hospital room, Psycho Husband asks if she remembers the time they registered their marriage since that was the best day of his life, and the wife narrates, “Why didn’t I know back then that a man who puts everything on the line for me was disastrous.”

The police arrive to apprehend Psycho Husband, and they explain that the husband secretly registered their marriage. Apparently, the two dated for a couple of months, but she broke up with him because of his obsessive behavior.

Hye-jung offers to bring the husband out since he won’t be suspicious of her, but Ji-hong says that he’ll do it instead. Instinctively, Hye-jung tries to object, but then tells herself to practice accepting protection and allows Ji-hong to go instead.

Ji-hong brings out the husband using the excuse that he has to explain the test results, but Psycho Husband recognizes the wife’s parents at the front desk. He runs away from Ji-hong, and though Ji-hong attempts to chase him, the husband manages to escape in a taxi because the cops from before are apparently on a coffee break (like seriously, where are they?).

The police officers get the husband’s information from the front desk as Kyung-joon and Joong-dae bicker with each other. Ji-hong stops by to ask if the criminal was caught, and Kyung-joon says that they haven’t caught him yet.

Yoon-do drinks alone at Soon-hee’s café, and Soon-hee drops off some complimentary food. She notes that his companion is late, and Yoon-do tells her that he’s alone. She stares at him with pity, pats his back, and mumbles loud enough to hear him, “And he looks so normal.” Hahaha.

Seo-woo arrives by herself, too, and when Soon-hee greets her, Seo-woo acts aloof, saying that she only came because it was the closest bar to the hospital. She notices Yoon-do, and sits behind him, back to back.

He’s surprised that she came to drink all by herself, and Seo-woo lies that she’s waiting for Young-kook. Yoon-do mentions all the times Seo-woo comforted him after his breakups, and Seo-woo notes that he must regret it, now. Yoon-do admits that he does, and Seo-woo says that she won’t do that again. Yoon-do thinks that’s a good thing and advises her not to act like a fool for him.

Psycho Husband returns to the hospital wearing a cap, and if you squint hard enough, he’s almost unrecognizable. At the neurosurgical front desk, Kang-soo is surprised that Hye-jung is still here, and she says that she’s going to check on the wife one more time.

The wife is with her mother, who leaves the room to get more water. The wife closes her eyes, her guard down, when the door slides open. Psycho Husband is back, and the sight of him makes her panic. He whispers that she can’t escape, and came to the conclusion that if he couldn’t have her, no one should. He asks her if it’s all right to kill her, and then proceeds to choke her with his hands.

Out in the front desk, the wife’s alarm rings, and Hye-jung runs ahead of the group to check on the patient. Psycho Husband opens the door just as Hye-jung arrives, and she immediately apprehends him. She yells at Kang-soo to check on the patient, and she flips Psycho Husband onto the floor.

Ji-hong receives a call from Hye-jung, informing him that the patient is in a semi-coma. Ji-hong arrives at the hospital, and Hye-jung expresses her strong desire to save the patient. During the surgery, Ji-hong reassures Hye-jung that there isn’t much bleeding, and the surgery ends without any major issues.

Pa-ran makes himself dinner at Yoon-do’s apartment, and Yoon-do is flabbergasted once he comes home. He whines about the mess Pa-ran made, but Pa-ran says his ex-girlfriend is still at his place—plus, Yoon-do’s apartment is closer to the hospital.

Yoon-do calls him the “General Surgery Department’s loser,” but out of nowhere, In-joo arrives and says that they’re no match in terms of paranoia for a “neurosurgeon psycho.” Pa-ran cheers for In-joo in the background, and In-joo orders Yoon-do to buy some ramyun. He calls her aunt again, and In-joo bargains that she’ll let him call her aunt if he makes her ramyun. Yoon-do closes his eyes and chants that it’s all a dream, but once he opens them again, he whines, “It’s not a dream!”

The wife is in the ICU after a successful surgery, and she lifts up her hand. Hye-jung puts out her palm, and the wife traces a heart to show her gratitude. Smiling, Hye-jung returns the gesture, and Ji-hong can’t help but smile himself.

As they head out to finally go home after a long day, Hye-jung asks if Ji-hong will take her home. He’s more than happy to do so, and the two of them walk together in the peaceful night. Hye-jung tells Ji-hong to leave first, and they sweetly wave goodbye before he goes.

Hye-jung watches him leave, but then runs after him. She throws her arms around his waist, and envelops him in a back-hug. They steal glances at each other and break out into huge grins. Ji-hong narrates, “Back-hugs can be moving. A feeling that someone is enduring behind you and guiding you through life. This feeling is the biggest happiness lovers can give to each other.”

 
COMMENTS

Now that’s what I’m talking about! I much prefer the back-hugs, the giggles, the kisses, and the silly side glances than the angst, angst, and more angst. To be honest, I thought the entire first half of the episode with the separation and awkwardness between the two leads was poorly done. While I liked Ji-hong’s words and self-reflection to wait and slow down, I didn’t think it translated well in his actions. Waiting for Hye-jung because he was speeding up the relationship isn’t the same as not contacting her for three weeks after having a spat. I can understand why both of them didn’t contact the other first, but even when he came back, I didn’t really see Ji-hong’s actions as someone patiently waiting. He did seem like he was avoiding her and keeping her at a distance, and I completely understand why Hye-jung was scared in the beginning. Even if missing her calls was a mistake, his behavior all day was a conscious choice. At least it gave them time to both reflect, and I enjoyed the conclusion even if the journey was a bit tiresome. It’s true how both of them wanted the other to change without really wanting to change themselves, so I’m glad Hye-jung admitted that and came to the conclusion that she wants to stay by his side, regardless.

The kiss this episode was much better than the previous one, which caused some finger-pointing (with some undue blame on Park Shin-hye, in my opinion). While I did find the buildup to the kiss tedious (Was two minutes of staring necessary?), I was satisfied with the overall scene. It helps that Park Shin-hye and Kim Rae-won are both ridiculously attractive. And I actually liked the clichéd fade-to-black in the scene, because my mind immediately went to a raunchy conclusion. Anyways, I’m just glad they’re happy now because they’re adorable together.

I know I said it last episode, but Jo Dal-hwan is awesome. He was super creepy as Psycho Husband, and felt like a bona fide psycho when he asked his “wife” if it was all right to kill her. I must admit that I didn’t see the whole stalker and kidnapper scenario; I just assumed he was an abusive and obsessive husband. Admittedly, it’s a bizarre storyline, but at least it shook things up and was entertaining. Sure, I might still be scratching my head over how Psycho Husband even managed to get into her room without being caught, but it’s not the only time the writer used convenient plot mechanisms to fuel her story. I’ve learned to roll with the punches because sometimes asking for logic or understanding the minor details and mechanics of a scene takes out the fun. If Psycho Husband didn’t show up, we wouldn’t have gotten to seen Hye-jung flip him over, and Ji-hong wouldn’t have walked Hye-jung home. In exchange for logic, I get entertainment: That’s not such a bad trade sometimes.

I’m still really glad In-joo is back. She’s a fun addition, and I loved all the scenes she was in (besides that one second when she was used as a transition). I thought drunk In-joo was hilarious, and loved Hye-jung’s expression when In-joo started yelling. You could see the regret etched on Hye-jung’s face, and In-joo was such an adorable and annoying drunk. That scene was also great because of Yoon-do, who completely ignored the drunk screaming lady and only saw Hye-jung. I don’t know why, but I found it so funny that he greeted Hye-jung. He reminds me of a little kid so much despite being the biggest person around. Talking about Yoon-do, while I do feel bad for laughing at his expense, it’s still hilarious how he’s bossed around like a little boy by his uncle and his friends. I loved the whole bit with Yoon-do calling In-joo his aunt because that’s exactly the reverse of how Yoon-do complained to Ji-hong about being called his nephew. Either the writer is running out of ideas and recycling lines, or she likes to poke fun at her own characters. Regardless, may the cohabitation hijinks continue!

I'm just not as into the show as I was in the first couple of episodes. The plot is lagging and to me it's seems like Hye-Jung is the only changing to accomadate Ji-Hong. That to me is an annoying development.

I don't think she's that different though, maybe more emotionally vulnerable, but, then again, he's also becoming more emotionally vulnerable.

They're both changing together, for each other imo.

But, yeah, I wonder how this is going to progress for eight more episodes, I feel like it would be perfect if it ended at sixteen episodes.

Either way, this isn't the type of show you watch for plot haha...I'm watching this because PSH is great in this and her character is such a great drama heroine. The character and actors are great as well, but Hye Jung is the selling point.

Wait, are you serious that there will be 20 eps?? Oh please. The first few episodes amused me because of the fast flow of the plot but true, that the plot has become SOOOOOOO draggy omg I think one of the few of me keep watching this drama is the hope that there will be only three episodes left (I'm on the 13th).

Now THAT is what I call a kiss! The first kiss they had was rather awkward, which I think they were trying to show, so this does show how much their relationship has developed. It was pretty hot if you ask me <3

I love the interactions between In Joo, Pa Ran, and Yoon Do as well! The two scenes we got of those three had me laughing out loud. Poor Yoon Do, having to be the adult out of the group even though he's the youngest, ahaha.

And man. Oh man. I fear people like that stalker. Learn from Hye Jung's words, people. Obsession like that ain't love, especially if you think that choking your crush like that is okay. Thank you, Hye Jung, for kicking his ass like a badass.

Did you the BTS to that kiss? Way hotter. I don't know didn't they show that. Maybe it's more befitting to PSH's character?
I also like how it seemed like she was the one who initiated it by touching his hair and also when he paused a bit before kissing her. Swoony.

Hee. When I watched the kiss, I, a grown ass adult, BLUSHED because Kim Raewon looks like he's analyzing a strange creature ("Woman, why are you sitting on my claw machine?"). I thought he was gonna protect his favorite entertainment center, but he went in for the kiss. Because priority xD.

I was so frustrated with Seo Woo (and still am) but I just love the way these people (Ji Hong, Yoon Do, Hye Jung, Young Kook) try to gently (mostly) correct her wayward thinking and childish behaviour. Yoon Do after acknowledging their issues and giving her time to get over it is now trying to move her on by treating her like a friend (which he hadn't done before - he'd been stringing her along). I love it.

Can I say yet again how much I love watching adult people behave as adults? In Joo apologizing to Hye Jung was great. I loved how Hye Jung immediately started calling her Unni. So adorable.

Okay I have to say this, but, as I was watching the kiss I couldn't help but think that the amount of camera tricks used and the effort put in by Kim Rae Won still couldn't quite hide the fact that Park Hye Jin still can't kiss. I feel for the girl and I think the drama pulled it off but unless it was for 'moral' reasons putting a door frame in the middle of your heroines face while they're kissing is blatantly admitting 'you don't want to see this bit'. Kekeke. I think she'll get there one day, and I liked the way they did it.

I still think that Ji Hong needs to be able to let Hye Jung in, but I loved that conversation.

Side note about the patient of the week: Of course the black cap of anonymity makes an appearance. Instantly rendering any bad dude, night errand boy, cutie pie serial killer completely invisible. Better than Harry Potter's cloak.

Seriously?. Again with blaming the girl, even after a good kiss?. Please they have also released the BTS of making of the kiss which completely focuses on their lips. Since you say its the camera angles..Why don't you check the bts too to see what really happened?..whether the girl kissed or not. You will be surprised cause it was park shin hye who was calm and confident after the kiss while kim rae won turned out to be the shy and flustered one. I feel like Ppl are seriously nitpicking park shin hye when it comes to kiss scenes whereas many actresses who had wide-eyed kiss in their dramas this week always gets a free pass..

Please do check that BTS. It actually focuses only on their face..no diff camera angles..

That's great! That would honestly make me so happy (care to share the BTS link? English subs would be much appreciated). I love Park Shin Hye, Pinnochio is one of the first kdrama's I ever watched. In fact, I'm watching it again because I just need more Shin Hye in my life. I have watched almost all of her drama's so I was honestly speaking from a place of love.

Obviously nobody can know my inner thoughts when posting and I've only just recently realised there's a fairly vocal anti-Shin Hye crowed out there so I apologise if people feel I'm being rude.

I liked the kiss, but I felt like the kiss was shot in a way to hide Shin Hye's face.

Here's a link to the kissing BTS, but I hope it's available outside of Korea: https://youtu.be/g73Jj9BhqwA

The BTS of the kiss was even more intense than the kiss in the drama, imo. KRW in the end was even blushing really hard after they finished! It's pretty funny if you consider his performance in Gangnam Blues lmao

Gah! Amazing! Yay. Go Shin Hye! If anyone had doubts watch the BTS. Awesome.

Yeah right? I've seen him in equally steamy scenes as in Gangnam Blues in another movie when he was a lot lot younger, so wasn't expecting him to be so flustered and shy after the kiss here at all which makes me love him even more. Goodness, never would I have imagined to call KRW adorable and cute in 2016 (manly and sexy, oh yes) but Doctors changes everything. Hehe.

Thanks for the BTS link. One of my issues with the kiss was the awkward positioning of the hands - it just makes what would have been a really steamy kiss look uncomfortable. And it was mostly PSH's hand placement - I thought "why would she grab his front chest pocket? But the BTS video showed that she was instructed to do this - so the awkwardness originally assigned to PSH turns out to be caused instead by the director. Such odd choices...

And don't get me wrong, I understand 1st and 2nd kisses can be awkward and in this drama it makes sense but I hope the director will give us one good "natural" kiss to help do away with some of PSH's kissing critics.

0

Looking at the YouTube scene, I think I get a bit of the issue (imvho)

The KISS looks odd because of PSH's posture. Although KRW head is above hers and he has definite lean forward, her head (initially) does not bend back but rather tilts forward slightly or is upright. Secondly, her back appears to hunch forward slightly rather than leaning back and being more shoulder "open" relaxed position which would seem more natural and receptive to the kiss.

If it is a piece of acting and directing, then it was subtle - meant to illustrate her personality as being closed off and used to closeness and having a tough exterior.

Adding on to my earlier comment, Korean Broadcasting norms likely play a large part in the scene. Back hugs allowed but a more natural kiss scene would not have 3 or more inches of space between her body and his? I guess having a woman and man press their chests together during a romantic scene might be "too much" regardless that the characters are not teens (or even in their twenties for that matter)

As a development in their arc, the scene made sense. Meant to convey the culmination of the episode where he steps back and gives her space (albeit crudely) and she takes the initiative to commit to the relationship on equal terms. It seemed clear that she initiated the intimacy and like the recapper, one hopes the fade to black insinuates it didn't stop there (no "carrying her to the bedroom" scene for k-drama land...sigh)

Oh.. Thankyou for taking the time and explaining it better. Yes, indeed. You are right. That certainly was the reason for my comment cause the unfair amount of hate this girl gets right after heirs is actually inexplainable. No matter how much growth/improvement she shows,antis always negate saying she is bad and terrible which isn't even the least true.

You will be surprised. After the kiss, kim rae won becomes shy. He places shinhye's hand on his cheeks and shin hye teases him saying his cheeks are burning hot. He says no shyly and says something in korean. At the moment, there is no eng sub. But sure,someone from park shin hye's fandom might sub it later. :)

I just watched it! It was adorable! I'm so happy. Actually I didn't realise that PSH was weak in the kissing department until after Pinnochio (I think my next drama might have been Heirs). She has really, really improved as a fan I'm looking forward to more!

I love her! As an aside The Heirs had it's problem but Shin Hye was not one of them for me (she made me love that damn Candy girl!).

I don't mean for this to become a PSH appreciation comment but so good to know Pinocchio's one of your earlier kdramas! You're Beautiful (also with Shin Hye) was my first kdrama addiction. I remembered marathoning it to complete it within 3 days - I was a uni student then so you could imagine how much I slept those days. haha Please watch it if you haven't. So much fun but you would appreciate PSH's mature doctors character after. :)

About the kiss, thank you for sharing the BTS video, guys! It wasn't the worst kiss in kdrama so I really don't see it as problematic. I agree with the recapper that the lead-up to it was worse, tbh. But that's obviously on the PD/editor not the actors.

Yes, people need to get over the kiss thing with PSH. She does fine these days and before I imagine it was due to director decisions or wanting to protect her girl next door image. I also don't understand all the hate. The dry k-drama kisses are silly looking but a lot of dramas post the bts videos so we can see how scripted they are.

Her kissing was fine. There have been various actresses in currently airing dramas who have had open eyed, non-moving kiss scenes this week, and people are still here to nit pick on a kiss scene that's pretty close to what you may even see on Western television. Ok. Whatever.

Anyway, the PD wasn't using camera tricks....he's just bad. It's his first time being a head PD for a drama, he's pretty green and inexperienced and has made some weird directing choices for some of the scenes in this drama. He needs to work on angles, not just for romantic scenes, but in general.

On the kiss.. usually public broadast station has a bit of restriction on how much to show. If it's more than that, they have to raise the age to 19 or possibly get a warning.

That's why cable channels kisses are different.

Thank you for mentioning the unfair finger-pointing at Park Shin Hye for the first kiss.
In retrospect, it seems to be a decision by the director.
1st kiss: He kissed her. She was shocked.. she did not love him yet? It wasnt really meant to be a kiss as it was him telling her how he feels about her.
2nd kiss: They kissed each other. She has accepted her feelings for him. They are together in a relationship, its still a little awkward (like all initial sexual acts in a new relationship, but they are getting the hang of it)
And we have all watched Pinocchio, and while LJS is an EXCEPTIONAL kisser, we also know PSH doesnt have fish lips like all her previous drama tried to depict, she does know how to kiss.
Now, yall can get off her case.

Maybe the problem all these years is that she's too good of a kisser and only boys can be good kissers in kdramaland! Girls have to be inexperienced and can never be naturals who go with the flow. Must. Freeze. Keep. Eyes. Open.

THAT WAS ONE AWESOME,INTENSE KISS.

First and foremost, Kudos to park shin hye for breaking all the complaints/insults that haters kept throwing at her. Genuine drama critics always acknowledged if there was improvement. Bt its always the bitter ones mindlessly kept hating her for unreasonable things. Lets see,what new reasons they come up with now to justify their hate..

Also i have noticed,when the kiss goes as their wish,these bitter ones make it as if its all the oppa doing or the camera angles.. Heck.. This girl is seriously nitpicked more when compared to many well known actresses who always gets free pass.

And they have also released the MAKING OF THE KISS SCENE which solely focuses on the lips. And trust me it was way too hot. Those who still complain, please take a moment and check the video for your research purpose. lol. It focuses only on the face showing their full kiss. You certainly will not be diasppointed. haha.. Infact,you are in for a surprise. And the funny thing that happened after their kiss was, kim rae won turned out all shy and embarrassed, whereas park shin hye was cool and confident. She even teased kim rae won saying, his cheeks are burning hot. That was actually an unexpected reaction from kim rae won considering the kisses and rated scenes our senior actor has done. It was too cute. I really love seeing him smile.

Anyways,coming to the actual episode, I loved how our doctor duo jihong and hyejung finds out about the psycho guy using that board..And hye jin drawing heart on hye jung's hand. This time the cameo turned out to be really nice. And I was so glad to see the return of badass hyejung. I just loved the way how she blocked the attacker and flips him over. And the tone that she used after the flip, while saying the dialogue to the attacker..Damn,i thought it was sexy. And that last scene with hyejung giving backhug to ji hong.. Aww.. How can a 40 and 31yr old be this cute. I just want to hug and squeeze them both.

Hehehehe. I watched that BTS clip so many times. Kim Rae Won is HOT! Pun intended. :P I loved how shy they both were after that kiss! Especially Kim Rae Won. Lol. And I loved that Park Shin Hye was reciprocating that kiss! Man that BTS kiss was much better than the on-screen kiss that we saw. She did more work in the BTS clip. Too bad it wasn't shown as much. However, I was still thoroughly satisfied with what they have us!

I'll admit I loved the kiss, it was filmed quite artistic. I felt the yearning from JH and loved that he did a little swallow before going in for the kiss. Just like when you are hungry and want to eat something desperately. They then showed us some sensual body touching and PSH returned the kiss gently. This kiss definitely gave me all the feels.

I enjoyed both episodes from this week. It was very realistic that a girl wants a guy to change when they first date but as we all know in reality habits die hard. Relationships are about two people working together and I believe this drama is delving in to it very well.

I love your comments!!!
I am sold by KRW and PSH for that kiss.
I saw their practice or discussion on how to act on the building up to that kiss and in awe of how it happens on screen.
Sorry for ranting but this is my fav kiss moment!!!! The feelings are built up so genuinely:
KRW almost back hugs. PSH turns face and almost touch KRW face, they becomes awkward, then PSH turns around and sit on the machine, face to face with KRW who is still fluster of expecting sth next but can't help suppress his anticipation. PSH reaches out to touch KRW, still too much nervous. Then PSH looks at KRW expectingly. Then KRW hesitates to approach slowly (bet it feels like a century to JH) not being sure. And then.... <3 <3 <3

Yey badass Hye-jung is back!

Contrary to others, I like this ep more. I'm slightly sorry that I've stopped caring about grandma, but the hijinks between the Aunt-Uncle-Husky trio are gold XD

I'm still annoyed that Hye-jung was the one who gave way to Ji-hong. I thought she was doing well opening up to him whereas he was the one who won't share burdens with her. It's so unfair that he has this weird attitude like Hye-jung is wrong and she needs to be love-rehabilitated.

It seems to me that Hye-jung is actually the more mature one. She's being completely honest, reaching out first, wanting to share each other's burdens. But *shrugs* rather than hate on Ji-hong too much, I guess I'll just bask in how awesome Hye-jung is.

what I loved about the kiss scene is actually the build up. I loved that she invited him in and they both coaxed and waited for each other before fully giving in. So. Super. Hot.

Also, my fav scene is actually when they locked eyes with each other when he returned to the hospital after the 3 weeks break. It was such intense staring. So many questions. So much love. It was pregnant with emotions. *fans self* ???

I agree that the build up was key. You have that anticipation and it's also great if they don't overdue the background music and make it overwhelming.

Thanks for the recap, Lovepark~!

I actually really liked this episode better than the previous one. Maybe because hospital politics did not take up so much screentime.

No hate to Honghonghong but if it was Hyejung who went to bring the psycho out the first time around, there would have been a slimmer chance for him to escape, no?

At any rate, I love that Hyejung is back kicking ass - may their relationship be as refreshingly straightforward and honest as it is now. :)

Now off to watch the BTS of the kiss scene!

PS I know I commented a similar note in the previous ep but really, Show, I think it is about time something goes wrong in the operation room for one of our lead characters! I want them to have a layer of conflict about having to lose a patient even while they are doing their best and what is right.

This is by far my favorite episode! I just loved how this episode focused more on the interaction and relationship of our OTP as well as their relationships with others (i.e. Hye Jung and In Joo). I really enjoy In Joo's presence. I love that she is not a naggy, over obsessed love interest to Triple Hong, but instead is a really good friend.

It was nice of In Joo to talk things over with Hye Jung and I loved that they could settle their differences. I think In Joo could be a great addition to Hye Jung's life to serve as sort of a mother figure since Hye Jung lacked that growing up.

I also really enjoyed how Hye Jung and Triple Hong was able to sit down together and talk things out. Can I just say #adultgoals, much? I just love how mature they both are and that they are able to have a conversation with each other instead of being noble idiots and running away from their problems.

Don't even get me started on that kiss! It was AMAZING! I loved it. It was simple and sexy at the same time. I just loved how Kim Rae Won swooped in for that kiss. And loved that Park Shin Hye moved her lips a bit too. All the angles helped elevate the kiss, but I gotta give Kim Rae Won and Park Shin Hye for delivering!

And finally! That last scene was perfect! It was just so sweet. Who knew a simple back hug could give so many feels?! I really loved it. It was simple, but you could feel just how much these two love each other. Btw, did anybody see Kim Rae Son's veins?! Holy moly, I almost passed out! It was hot!

This drama honestly have nothing. It is pretty empty and boring.

All characters revolve around Hye - Jung. The secondary leads, to be more precise Seowoo, is like a ghost in this story.

Yoondo scenes are repetitive, always the same. The romantic relationship of the main characters sometimes feel like an obligation, I feel that the changes Hyejung made ​​ in this episode, about letting Jihong care of her was not natural or fluid, I do not like that she has to stop being who she is (a strong woman) for the relationship to flow.

Both of them are such damaged characters. After all the Kim Rae Won overwhelming positive and smiling, I am waiting for him to break.

I enjoy the lovey dovey scenes, but I believe that we need to transit beyond this dream boy character.

And more fighting please, Hye Jung!

For love to save them, something has to be there to be saved.

I'm kind of dimly fascinated by how obsessed the international drama watching fandom is by kiss scenes, especially considering the fact that the people that complain about them the most seem like they've never even...you know what, nevermind, let me just keep my comment cute and not say anything.

Besides that, I wonder where they are going to go with the plot, after this. I definitely get Grey's Anatomy feels with this drama, with the overarching romance and grandma storyline, and then you have individual patient cases each week. But, since the romance just hit a peak, I'm assuming something bad will happen between HJ and JH within the next few episodes.

I'm kind of meh on the plot, but this is a easy watch and the characters are interesting, and the actors really sell it, which is why I think it's doing better than a lot of the other character driven dramas right now.

Wow the build-up to the claw machine kiss took forever. I think Ji Hong has never ever had a relationship with a woman before. I mean Hye Sung is supposed to be the slow one, but she hops up on the machine facing him. And he doesn't get the hint for a long long time. I finally shout to the television "She wants you to kiss her you idiot" when he made his move. I mean you can't play with the stupid machine anymore with her sitting on it, she's facing you , at the same level . . . like hello.. McFly are you there?

Everyone is talking about the kiss. XD Definitely better than the first time. I'm glad they had a chance to talk things out and HJ admitted that she was wrong to ask him to change. I honestly don't think she was wrong. But there needs to be open communication for their relationship to work and they need to share each other's fears and burdens. Even if it means taking baby steps, I'm fine with that as long as both understand the end goal and actively make attempts to compromise.

IJ-PR-YD!! Hahaha... Too funny! More scenes please!!

Dang... Psycho Husband is truly psychotic. Hahahahaha THE CAP is always the greatest disguise in dramaland. =P So glad to see JH figuring out something seems off and ended up saving the girl. Way to go! I'm quite liking this case format and looking forward to the next ep.

I'm glad that HJ and JH talked. They both need to compromise or adjust themselves to each other without completely changing themselves. I hope JH will try to open up more to HJ. HJ has now learnt to let him protect her. They now should investigate GrandMa's case together.

As for the scene leading to the kiss, I had to chuckle. When HJ was reaching out to his hair, JH was taken aback. For a moment, I thought the guy wondered if she was going to tease him like she did, by just fixing his clothe / shirt collar or something.

I think Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won have similar facial features - from the shape of the nose and their small mouth and smiles.

Having similar facial features is one way to know if a couple is suited for one another and I think both of them are suited for one another based on their facial features.

So I won't be surprised if they end up a real-life couple one day.

However, even if they don't end up together, I wish them all the happiness in the world with whomever they do in the future. ;)
