Catch the Ghost: Episode 16 (Final)

So I was wrong, and Episode 15 wasn’t my last say on this series, haha. Let’s resolve this case at last and indulge in cute epilogue moments! Our newbie and her chief face the Subway Ghost in the end, though his capture may not bring the case to a close. Everyone involved must decide what it really means to close a case when a victim remains missing, and what it means to do the right thing instead of following protocol. And then, those cute epilogue moments…

 
EPISODE 16

On the roof of the Sunil Motel, Caregiver Choi almost tells Yoo Ryung where her sister is, until she spots her son Hee-joon. Yoo Ryung and Hee-joon face off, her hand at her sidearm and his wire at the ready.

Yoo Ryung starts with an apology–she takes responsibility for what happened, since she is Yoo Jin’s guardian, but then also adds that it was an accident. Hee-joon snarls back that it’s easy when it doesn’t affect you, but that she wouldn’t say the same thing if Yoo Jin had died instead that day.

Yoo Ryung acknowledges that she understands the pain and resentment he feels, but she says that the moment he chose to kill people as a way to kill, he became nothing but a murderer. Hee-joon says that he isn’t interested in healing, since it wouldn’t be fair to his daughter’s memory.

Hee-joon asks if Yoo Ryung would like to know what Yoo Jin looked like the last time he saw her, and then he mockingly mimics the girl’s cries, pleading for her sister. Then he invites Yoo Ryung to shoot him and holds his arms out wide, leaving his chest open. He says that Yoo Ryung wanted to kill him too when she thought he was the one who killed her sister.

Yoo Ryung says she doesn’t kill people, but then Hee-joon tells her that if she doesn’t take this shot, he’ll hunt Yoo Jin for the rest of his life, and he’ll relish telling her that it’s because Yoo Ryung didn’t kill him. Yoo Ryung readies the gun, her finger pulls toward the trigger and then… she lowers the gun and holsters it again.

Infuriated, Hee-joon lunges forward and begins to choke Yoo Ryung with his wife. His mother watches on, begging him to stop, and eventually she runs over and bites him to try to stop him. He releases Yoo Ryung, who remains unconscious on the ground. “Mom, why are you always not on my side?” he asks, and demands to know where Yoo Jin is.

It turns out, she’s not too far away. Nurse Park runs down the motel stairs, dragging Yoo Jin along. In flashback, we see that it was Nurse Park who met Caregiver Choi at the hospital, and who later showed up at the motel to take Yoo Jin with her. But now that Nurse Park tries to escape with her, Yoo Jin resists and the two come to a standstill in the lobby.

Back on the roof, Hee-joon brandishes a knife at his mother, demanding to know where Yoo Jin, his daughter’s killer, is. His mother tearfully responds that she thought she was protecting her son who was suffering, but she sees now that her son is a serial killer, and she’s a murderer too by association. She says that she should have stopped everything in the beginning, and looks over the rooftop to the ground.

Hee-joon drags Yoo Ryung to a hidden corner just as Ji-seok bursts onto the roof, but his focus is on Caregiver Choi, who perches precariously on the roof edge. “I’m sorry about your mother,” she tells him, and then leans backwards until she’s falling from the roof. Yoo Ryung rouses just in time to witness this, while Hee-joon sprints to the stairs and Ji-seok follows after him. Ji-seok stops to check on Yoo Ryung, and she urges him to catch Hee-joon.

Hee-joon rushes to his mother’s side, and holds her head in his hands as she slips away. Nearby, Yoo Jin also heard the commotion and comes running to Caregiver Choi as well. She grows frantic when the woman doesn’t respond to her calls of “Grandma!” but Hee-joon’s eyes grow wide and he has his knife out, wavering as he reaches for Yoo Jin.

Ji-seok stands before the scene, his gun raised. He demands that Hee-joon put down the knife, and soon Yoo Ryung is at his side, her gun also at the ready. Yoo Ryung’s face crumples as she witnesses her sister’s anguish. Hee-joon doesn’t put down the knife, and Yoo Ryung struggles to pull the trigger to disarm him. And so it’s Ji-seok who finally fires, the bullet hitting Hee-joon in the arm. As he falls to the ground, Yoo Jin starts running, and Yoo Ryung chases behind.

Yoo Jin crosses the railroad tracks, and Yoo Ryung is stopped on the other side by the safety gate. She begs her sister to stay put until the train passes, but Yoo Jin hesitates only a moment, and then slowly turns her back on Yoo Ryung. The train roars past, and Ji-seok arrives to fold the frantic Yoo Ryung in his arms. When the tracks clear, Yoo Jin is gone.

The news of the Subway Ghost capture spreads, and Ji-seok steps up for a press conference to answer reporters. The room explodes with questions, from the role of the subway police to the rumor of a special promotion. When the room quiets, the first question to Ji-seok is what reasons the Subway Ghost had for hiding bodies on the subway.

Ji-seok explains that they believe the Ghost wanted to show the world that it was the apathy of subway riders, and not the subway itself, that had killed his daughter. When the reporter asks if the Ghost got his message across, Ji-seok says that he believes that people don’t agree with him and understand that murder isn’t justified, no matter the circumstances. The next question is about the first victim, Yoo Jin, and whether they’ve located her yet. With this question, Ji-seok hesitates to answer.

During the presser, Yoo Ryung sits home, alone, staring at the hand-drawn map of her neighborhood. Her thoughts are on the moment at the tracks, when Yoo Jin turned away from her. After the press conference, Ji-seok hangs missing person fliers up. Yoo Jin is still missing.

But while things remain unresolved for our core team, Officer Jeon beams as he reads aloud to Commissioner Kim all of their great press. The commissioner seems reluctant to celebrate though, and she asks Officer Jeon to bring the press in for an interview.

With reporters gathered, Commissioner Kim says that she promised to resign if they didn’t catch the Ghost, and though the Ghost was captured,the case isn’t closed yet. She removes her badge and declares that she resigns as of this moment. The commissioner admits that the police ignored initial reports of the Ghost’s first victim, and that victim remains missing. She takes responsibility for Ma-ri’s efforts to push Yoo Jin’s case aside, and she shoots a smile at her daughter to acknowledge this.

Once Ma-ri returns to her desk, her team has a new case assigned. But she pulls a photo out of her desk and stares for a while. It’s a picture of Yoo Jin, but instead of the brutal one from the Subway Ghost crime scene, it’s the one Yoo Ryung provided, of her sister smiling sweetly for the camera. Ma-ri announces that they need to close this case before they move on, and asks who is willing to help.

Woo-hyuk volunteers immediately, and one by one the rest of the gruff Major Crimes cops stand up too. They want to do something for their fellow officer Yoo Ryung. The team scatters as they agree to canvas and review security footage, and the former commissioner stops by. She smiles as she sees her daughter hard at work, and tells her how cool she looks. Ma-ri smiles back, the two finally on the same page.

Major Crimes has some competition, as the subway team is also hard at work looking for Yoo Jin. The boys know how difficult the search has been for Yoo Ryung, and they worry that she’s more upset now than she was when she thought her sister was dead.

And then Yoo Jin appears on a street, peeling one of Ji-seok’s posters down to look at it. A weary Ji-seok turns and asks the stranger not to tear down his efforts, but then he stops as he realizes who is standing right next to him. She begins to run from the stranger, but he grabs hold of her arm and quickly explains that he knows her sister. He asks if she’ll just listen to him for a moment, and tentatively releases his grip. He says that he knows that Yoo Ryung abandoned her, but that she’s been searching for her non-stop ever since. He asks Yoo Jin to return to her sister just once, to ask for herself whether Yoo Ryung would ever abandon her again. Without turning back, Yoo Jin walks away.

But she heads to Yongshin Station, the first location on her map of her neighborhood. She passes the pharmacy and reaches the chicken restaurant, and she can hear her sister’s voice urging her to make a right there. Trailing behind, Ji-seok watches from afar as Yoo Jin heads home.

Yoo Ryung sits outside her building until dusk, when she eventually heads inside. She peeks her head out the door one last time, but sees no one and turns inside to watch the news. It’s dark when the door eventually opens, and Yoo Jin comes in. She sees her sister, asleep on the floor in front of the tv, the map of their neighborhood at her side.

Yoo Ryung opens her eyes the next morning, and curled up next to her is Yoo Jin. They each whisper that they’ve missed one another, and Yoo Ryung apologizes and reaches out for her sister’s hand, overjoyed to have her returned.

Ji-seok smiles outside his mother’s hospital, a big bouquet of flowers in his hand. But when he enters his mother’s room, she’s returned her hair to the childish braids, and she appears confused when he calls her “Mom.” Ji-seok’s face falls, and he mutters that he must be in the wrong room and slips outside. Sigh. This is the pain I was expecting.

But Ji-seok rejoins his mother on the park bench outside the hospital. She says that she recognizes him from before, the last time he sat next to her on this bench and asked about her age. He pretends to just remember himself, and says he did so because she was so pretty. Mom asks if he has family at the hospital, and he says that his mother has dementia and doesn’t recognize him. His mother sighs that it must make him so sad, and Ji-seok smiles and says that he’s okay because his mother is happier like this.

And Ji-seok also has his memory of that brief, flickering moment, when his mom recognized him. He knows how proud his mother is of him, somewhere inside, and also asked him not to try so hard for her. He smiles again, and says he’s just fine. Okay yes, now I’m crying.

The subway team gets a day off as a reward for their hard work, and they all hang out together in the garden where Yoo Ryung liked to take Yoo Jin. Now Yoo Jin wanders the fields of flowers while the crew sits together on their picnic blanket. They’re impressed with the nice spot Yoo Ryung found, but she admits that she misguidedly used to bring Yoo Jin here because it was secluded. Yoo Ryung now understands that she herself was the one who felt bad going out in crowded places with Yoo Jin, and that Yoo Jin felt Yoo Ryung’s panic. Yoo Ryung says that she doesn’t mind it anymore, and Ji-seok remarks that Yoo Jin really does feel everything her sister does. He teases that Yoo Jin must have a hard time taking care of her difficult sister, haha. Ji-seok goes out to the flowers with Yoo Jin, and steers her towards the group as they walk to a nearby waterfall.

Man-jin and Soo-ho splash and play in the water, and Yoo Jin laughs at them splashing one another. Yoo Ryung runs over to gently splash her sister, and they smile at one another. Ji-seok’s got a jewelry box of some sort, and he rallies some courage as Yoo Jin steps away to watch Soo-ho catch a fish barehanded, ha.

Ji-seok turns to Yoo Ryung and asks if she’s figured out a living situation for Yoo Jin now that Yoo Ryung has a full-time job. She says that she’s found a group home in their neighborhood where she can work on social skills and sleep when Yoo Ryung has the night shift. Now Ji-seok hands over the jewelry box, and inside there’s a necklace. On the disc is written Yoo Jin’s name, and below are both Yoo Ryung and Ji-seok’s phone numbers. He says that he wanted to give it directly to Yoo Jin, but that she won’t even look at him yet. Yoo Ryung notes his phone number below hers, and he says that he should become friends with her as well so that she trusts him enough to call if she needs help.

It’s time for another night shift, and Yoo Ryung can’t help but watch as Ji-seok tousles his wet hair (same girl, same). He catches her watching him, and then it’s time for bed. They settle in, the curtain hanging between them, and then Ji-seok asks for an answer to his previous question. Yoo Ryung knows the one, when he asked her to be his girlfriend after the case was resolved, and Yoo Ryung doesn’t hesitate much before saying yes.

Ji-seok springs up and pounces through the curtain. He’s all smiles and dimples, saying that he’ll make her happy “forever, er, from now on,” haha. He closes the curtain finally and the two settle into their pillows, but Ji-seok can’t help but sneak his hand over, his palm facing up, Yoo Ryung spots it and lays her own hand on top, their fingers entwining.

Yoo Ryung is chipper and ready to go the next morning, and sleepy Ji-seok eventually catches on to her enthusiasm. He has his hands ready for a secret hand hold behind his back on the escalators, but Yoo Ryung smiles and walks past. He pouts and holds out his hand, and she takes it, turning the pout into a broad smile.

But by the end of the day, these two don’t have any smiles to offer one another. Yoo Ryung’s face is cut, and Ji-seok yells at her disobeying orders yet again and fighting a guy barehanded instead of using her taser. Ji-seok sits down on subway car bench and pats the spot next to him, but Yoo Ryung pointedly takes a seat across from him instead.

But soon a reel of their best moments is playing in Yoo Ryung’s mind (and in the windows of the subway car), of every moment that Ji-seok defended her and fought for her. Ji-seok also recalls some of their greatest hits, from Yoo Ryung’s creepy train lovers’ club to them dancing together. And of course who could forget Ji-seok ramping a moped into a car, one that Yoo Ryung’s arm was stuck in? Yoo Ryung sits next to Ji-seok now, and he fusses over the cut on her cheek. They hold hands and lean in together for the remainder of the ride.

And now it’s date night, and Ji-seok’s whole face lights up when Yoo Ryung emerges from her apartment all dressed up. When he asks what she’d like to do, Yoo Ryung says she’d love to do nothing. He laughs and suggests it’s impossible for her, and she says that’s exactly why she wants to give it a try. So they settle down on her rooftop and just talk. Ji-seok asks what Yoo Ryung was like as a kid, and she says that she was one of the kids who was always in trouble for talking too much in class. Yoo Ryung asks about Ji-seok, and he says he was the class president writing up all of those troublesome talkative kids, haha. She asks what little Chief Ko’s dream was, and he said he wanted to be Superman and catch all the villains, even in space. But his attempts to practice flying didn’t yield the best results, teehee.

The mood shifts as the two grow more and more comfortable with one another, and soon Ji-seok is leaning in for a kiss. Yoo Ryung closes her eyes and tilts her head, but somehow they get the angle all wrong, and Ji-seok curls around and pulls back out, embarrassed. But Yoo Ryung breaks the tension by delivering a kiss to his cheek, and now Ji-seok goes in for a real kiss, the stars in the sky shining overhead.

And then it’s another day at work. Soo-ho runs in with news that he spotted “Knife,” a thief with a knife they’ve been chasing for a while now. Man-jin points out that since it’s armed robbery, Major Crimes got involved. But when asked if they should pass it on to another department, Ji-seok declares that they have the authority to investigate violent crimes too. Yoo Ryung gives him an approving smile, and Man-jin gives a nod to their new plaque honoring their efforts in the Subway Ghost case, confident they have the skills for this work.

It’s time for disguises and a stake out. Our perp, Knife, enters a subway train car. There are a few characters arranged on the seats, including a sleeping woman with an expensive bag, a man in a bucket hat, a woman with her head tucked over her eyes, and a sleeping man sprawled out with his wallet hanging out of his back pocket.

Knife goes for the sleeping man and the back pocket wallet, and a pair of familiar, long legs stretch out across Knife’s lap as he tries to lean in. After a few tries, he retrieves the wallet, and that’s when Ji-seok rolls over and reveals himself. Yoo Ryung jumps with a yell, throwing the hat back up off her face. But wait, it seems that Major Crimes is here too. Ma-ri jumps up from the other side, abandoning her purse, and Woo-hyuk pulls off the bucket hat and charges into the fray.

Ma-ri yells that this is their case, but Yoo Ryung throws her leg up over the middle, and slaps the cuffs on first. “Whoever cuffs him first gets him,” Ji-seok nods with approval at his newbie. But Ma-ri and Woo-hyuk won’t give up the fight, and the group struggles together, a heap of arms and legs and handcuffs.

 
COMMENTS

Was this the perfect final episode? I can’t deny that I have no issue with a show that just gives me sweet moment after sweet moment for the last half hour. It feels like we’ve earned this, right alongside these characters who have been through so much.

This last episode delivered everything the show promised. Yoo Ryung and Hee-joon faced one another, saw how similar their circumstances were, but Yoo Ryung ultimately chose the right path and didn’t take revenge. For someone who has been so brash since the beginning, this makes the same point that Ji-seok makes at the press conference. Things in life can be unfair, and other people can contribute to your hardships, but there is a line that should not be crossed.

Hee-joon may have even had a moment of clarity before he was apprehended. I really enjoyed how unclear his intentions were in those final moments. He didn’t look angry when he saw Yoo Jin at his mother’s side, but he also didn’t lose grip of that knife he pointed at her either. It may be that Hee-joon can still consider his actions and realize how wrong he was. You know, in prison.

The subway police finally get the recognition they deserve, the entire police force has learned to focus on the people rather than just closing a case and upping their numbers, Yoo Jin gets a chance to grow and change as Yoo Ryung sees the ways that she held them both back. Everything is so satisfying.

The most interesting resolution, I think, was Commissioner Kim taking responsibility for the ways the Subway Ghost case went wrong, mostly due to Ma-ri’s actions. This is the commissioner’s moment to admit that she sees how her cold demeanor towards her daughter created an environment where Ma-ri could stop caring the people she was meant to serve. The Subway Ghost chose the wrong path forward when faced with an uncaring and unforgiving world, but Commissioner Kim wants to show Ma-ri that she can accept the role that she played in everything, and give Ma-ri the freedom to change for the better.

This episode even came through and saved it for me with Ji-seok and his mother. In Episode 15 I was a mixture of happy (for Ji-seok) and disappointed in what felt like too much when his mother seemed to miraculously remember him. I don’t want to say that I was happy to see that she had reverted and believed she was a teenager again, but I am so glad that they went this route, because this resolution is so much more nuanced and bittersweet and hopeful. Mom’s dementia may come and go, but Ji-seok has the memory of that moment when his mother saw him for him, and she was proud of who she saw. And she also gave him permission to stop trying so hard just for her, because it isn’t what she would want for her son. That doesn’t mean that he stops seeing her, but it does mean that he can give up dressing up like his dad every other day just to spend time with her. In this new chapter, he can be himself and have her in his life. Though she may not realize it every day, her son loves her very much and will stay by her side always.

I love that in the end, the takeaway isn’t that we should break all the rules or follow all the rules. It’s that we should put people first. Don’t leave anyone behind. Don’t let your bias or your personal issues prevent you from helping others. And be willing to let new people in. Yoo Ryung and Yoo Jin were so isolated, but now they’ve got people who will come through for them no matter what. One big (police) family.

Thank you for recapping this! I just finished marathoning the whole series yesterday. Your final words come at the right time for saying goodbye to this show. :') I didn't expect to love it so much and now I'm gonna miss this subway squad a lot. T____T

i really liked Kim Sun Ho's portrayal in this -- he was convincingly sincere and sweet and earnest! Moon Geun Young did a great job of playing both roles and while she is always awkward in romantic scenes (she plays the innocent so well, and maybe she truly is just that), i thought their kiss was very sweet -- mainly due to Sun Ho, cuz he's just adorkable all the time. love him!

Thanks @abirdword, your recap was so worth the wait. I just love, no adore your thoughts on this episode.

Of course this drama had to make me cry a lot even in the last episode and yes thinking about some things still makes me cry. I cried when Yoo Jin tried to make Caregiver Choi just wake up. I cried when Ji Seok's mother forgot him again and as he shed tears outside. I wasn't surprised that she would forget again cause this isn't the kind of drama that would not do that. And I predicted as much from the second episode itself that this might happen but didn't want to think about it then and I don't know why I thought that in the first place (didn't hospital ship have something similar? can't remember). And yet I am at once glad that Ji Seok is okay and gets to worry less about his mother not remembering him and also can't help but find it cruel that she remembered him just to forget again, just like I was both disappointed and happy that she remembered him last episode. Still I couldn't help but find it bittersweet and hopeful too. It's definitely a weirdly mixed reaction but that's how I felt through the whole thing.
When both the sister's were reunited it was such a long time coming that I didn't just cry, I sobbed, hard, cause it's what I had been waiting for. Cause Yoo Ryung was all smiles after all that and I just loved everything that happened near the end. Both Ji Seok and Yoo Ryung were happy and all the moments between them were so sweet. Plus the ending was hilarious. Yoo Ryung is still newbie to him till the end huh? Heh. I and so going to miss this show and I don't think anything will come even close to the obsession I had with this show. And I don't think any other show will make me laugh or cry, and give me everything I ever wanted in a drama down to the Kind of female lead. And I am so glad that I watched the drama despite not really liking serial killer and psychopath stories much. I am glad I stuck with it till the end cause I had the feeling that I had to continue watching past episode 5 and am glad I trusted my instincts. I have never been as satisfied with a story ever.

yes, yes, yes to everything you said!!!! What a beautiful show this was. Loved it from the very beginning to the end, and I'm sure it'll stay with me for a long time.

This last episode was the perfect way to tie everything together... What a rollercoaster of emotions! The moments between our sweet leads were so worth the wait, and I also sobbed when Yoo Ryung and Yoo Jin reunited. I will miss our family of cops dearly. Thank you for everything, Catch the Ghost!!

I checked out this drama without any expectation but I ended up loving it so much. I love a drama when it makes me cry, laugh and love the characters/actors and this drama did all that to me. I have loved Moon Geun Young since Autumn in my Heart. I watched most of her movies/dramas and she's never disapointed me. I'm a big fan of Kim Sun Ho after this. I hope to see them with more projects soon. I actually already miss them. :(

Thank you for all the wonderful recaps @abirdword!

This wasn't a perfect show but it was a good one, I liked and I'll miss it and miss our subway squad!

I admit that mom going back to not remembering him is what I wanted, too, I know it's cruel for Ji-seok but this makes more sense, and he already got his moment with mom, the words she said to him he'll never forget, he'll cherish that moment all his life!

I loved the gift he gave Yoo Ryung for Yoo Jin, that was so thoughtful of him, and it was such a nice way to say that they're a family and that both sisters can depend on him now!

Thanks for the recaps! Truly a gem of a show for me. I think I'm still trying to process my binge watch but without a doubt I fell in love with our awesome subway team. I'll definitely need a rewatch to take everything in slowly.

My only gripe was Hee Joon's mom dying though. I mean I'm glad she took care of YJ and sincerely loved her but she should have paid for her crimes too! She didn't turn him in and she knew what he was up to almost from the very beginning. And I can't forget her going to Mi Ra's hospital room and minutes later MR died. I assumed Mom had something to do with it, no? Did I misinterpret that? And at the end of the day, hiding YJ, was still kidnapping. Regardless if YR left her or not. The only reasoning I can figure out is that from a narrative standpoint, the writer needed something drastic to freeze HJ. So that's why I forgive them lol. Also, because the adorkable OTP made my year. ❤

The drama has been mostly good so I would rather not talk about the little let downs. Also really liked how they chose to end on a hilarious note 💯
Here's to the most awesome subway squad😁👮‍♀️👮‍♂️🚄💕🛵🌟

I think the story was pretty unfair with the Commissioner Kim. She was fair with her daughter. They never showed her being mean with her, so all the Mari's obsession with her mother was weird and unjustified. If one of them should leave the Police, I would have chosen Mari. Her complete change at the end was badly written, she was pretty awful during all the show, so I didn't buy her sudden kindness.

I think the main character were touching and their personnal stories pretty sad but I really disagreed with all their decisions. All the police matter was a big mess.

I wanted to see more Yang-Cha with a more important role :(

I agree with regards to Commissioner Kim. I always felt like Ma Ri's constant need for her mom's acceptance was misplaced. And yah her character development was sudden.
But like I said the drama has been mostly good so I'm willing to ignore the little let downs!

Same here, I love Moon and KSH so much in this show. They really have a natural chemistry that is rarely seen. I don’t know how to say goodbye to the show...I’m miss it soooo much. 😢

Overall it’s one of the best Korean drama I’ve watched in a awhile.

Finished this drama over the weekend and this week with my sister. We enjoyed Moon Geun Young's excellent double acting and Kim Sun Ho's dimples (his acting is good too!). We were invested to see who is the killer until the very end.

Yet, there a few things that bugs me. Call me a realist but I don't think both the motive of the murders and the murders itself would happen in the real world.

1) Why isn't anyone guarding the malfunctioned subway door when the daughter fall in? They just left the door open?

2) How did the homeless dude even get in? And why did she push the girl?

3) With all the witnesses, no one knew about the crime? I mean the police didn't make the connection earlier? I think it was mentioned they couldn't access the case so why and who did that?

4) All of them running in the subways to chase after the culprits. How come nobody else come to help? Even if the public doesn't help, isn't there a security in the subways. I feel like they were the only policemen in the whole drama. Shouldn't a serial murder case be a priority?

5) Why the heck they didn't check the tunnels? I still don't get what was the reason why Ma Ri choose to ignore Yoojin. I mean it is still consider the lead.

6) Yooryung literally just abandoned her sister for 1 minute and people started to judge her. This is ridiculous.

So all this questions makes me think that detectives from another show could have solved it after the first killing. E.G: Forest of Secret, Signal & Life of Mars and many more. I watched too many crime dramas. 🤣

For a big city with a serial killers running around, they only seem to have less than a dozen law enforcement people. The way my brain tries to reason this out is that the staff shortage shorted out the brains of our overworked police. Chief Gong just completely disappeared near the end. Poor guy!

" Yoo Ryung can’t help but watch as Ji-seok tousles his wet hair (same girl, same)." --> LOL, me too! I really liked that scene, not only because I got to drool over Kim Sun Ho, but it was a moment where I felt like Yoo Ryung was actually into Ji Seok in a romantice/bf-gf sort of way and not in an "I esteem you" sort of way.

I found the final confrontation frustrating. Yoo-Ryung gave Hee-joon too much of an opening and I couldn't feel much for the mom who abetted her serial killer son. I was also confused as to where Yoo Jin was hiding when she left Yoo Ryung by the tracks.

I did love the last half with the subway police and Jin gathered together. Ji Seok's gift was absolutely perfect and a great way to declare his intentions. It was weird how Mari was depicted in that final scene. Feels like a completely different character. I wish they'd gone with funny Mari instead of sourface-Mari-who-will-dig-in-her-heels-to-blame-severly-autistic-young-woman-for-masterminding-the-murders for the series.

An unexpected drama that amazes viewers. Quirky action scenes, funny moments, and an intriguing plot-line. This drama is underrated and recommend that people give this a try. There are many heart warming moments in this drama and also great acting. Highly recommend this!

One thing that catches my attention to this drama is the opposite attraction between the main leads. The obediently naive male leader and the stubborn rule breakers female police. This show was so mindblowing in the first episodes. Overall, I love the plot eventho sometimes I feel the boring slow progress in the character development and the culprit chasing process. I also think that the female lead would be more pleasing if created with a more caring and loving personality towards the male lead. I found her taking everything for granted despite all the sacrifices done for her. Besides that, this is fun to watch.
