It’s Okay to Not Be Okay: Episode 15

In its penultimate episode, It’s Okay takes all the pain that’s been building up and unleashes it all at once. There are just some forces determined to tear our characters apart and keep them miserable. Luckily, our hero is no stranger to misery — he’s been there and he’s getting better and better at finding his way out.

 
EPISODE 15: “A tale of two brothers”

We rewind to Do Hui-jae holding Sang-tae in the mansion — and it looks like she drugged his drink, as he’s getting sleepier and sleepier. She caresses his hair, and he weakly resists before passing out on the couch.

That’s when Hui-jae calls Kang-tae using Sang-tae’s phone. She laughs at Kang-tae’s worried tone, saying he’s always looking for his brother. Well, if he wants to meet them, she says, he’ll have to come to the cursed castle.

Kang-tae is back at the mansion in no time, walking right in and finding Hui-jae in the study. Kang-tae panics to see his brother unconscious, and again, Hui-jae laughs. She says it’s too bad she wasn’t able to put Moon-young to sleep as well: “I really wanted to see which one of them you’d choose.”

Kang-tae demands to know why Hui-jae is doing this to them, and she answers that they changed her daughter. In other words, they ruined her most precious artwork that she so carefully molded.

Kang-tae angrily argues that Moon-young is a person and not artwork, making Hui-jae explode. Because of him, she screams, Moon-young won’t listen to her. And like any other artwork that fails, she’ll have to discard her.

To Kang-tae’s horrified expression, Hui-jae smiles and says, “I don’t want to do that because of all the hard work I’ve done.” So she’s giving him the chance to take his brother and run away, as far away from Moon-young as possible.

As Hui-jae expected, Kang-tae refuses, so she presents him with another option: Kill her. That way, Kang-tae gets his revenge and Moon-young returns to her old self; it’s the perfect ending where everyone’s happy. He tells her to give up that stupid ending, because he’ll never give up on Moon-young.

Even when, Hui-jae asks, Moon-young is the reason why Kang-tae’s mother died? She’s more than happy to go into that story, saying she met his mom right here.

In flashback, we see that Kang-tae’s mom was sent to the mansion as the family’s new housekeeper. One day, while outside, Mom saw that the young Moon-young was fixated on a bird with a broken wing. And to Mom’s surprise, Moon-young was wondering if she should put the bird out of its misery.

Concerned, Mom would later relay this to Hui-jae, who smiled and said that she was proud of her daughter.

But then Mom started to suggest Moon-young go to the hospital her eldest son went to, and Hui-jae frowned. We transition from Hui-jae stabbing her paperwork with her pen… to that night in the alley, when she stabbed Mom in the neck.

“That’s it?” Kang-tae says, voice shaking. “Because of one thing she said, you killed her?” Seeing the smug look on Hui-jae’s face, Kang-tae snaps — he lunges forward and starts to choke her. As he does, she just encourages him to kill her, to not be weak.

Kang-tae’s crying, feeling nothing but fury, when he suddenly remembers something Moon-young said. It’s from the night she was drunk, when she admitted that she still viewed Hui-jae as her mom. With this in mind, Kang-tae slowly releases his hold on Hui-jae.

All of a sudden, Hui-jae grabs a tranquilizer from her bag and shoves it into Kang-tae’s side. She watches him fall to his knees, saying that he is weak, unlike her and her daughter.

Just then, Moon-young comes rushing in, taking in the scene. She stares down Hui-jae and states that she’s not like her, that she’s not a monster. She then grabs a pen off the desk and comes at her. But Kang-tae quickly puts himself between them, stopping the pen with his palm.

“You promised that you wouldn’t do this,” Kang-tae says, before passing out in Moon-young’s arms. In shock, Moon-young starts crying and begging for him to wake up.

Hui-jae comes up behind them and grabs Moon-young by the hair, seething that this is what she gets for not listening, for thinking she could ever escape. With that, Hui-jae takes the pen and raises it over Kang-tae–

And wham! Sang-tae hits Hui-jae over the head with a book, yelling, “Don’t hurt my siblings!” We see Hui-jae fall to the ground, and then we pan back to Sang-tae standing over his siblings, only now it’s their younger selves.

The next thing we know, the police arrive and take Hui-jae into custody (thanks to Director Oh, it seems). Seeing Director Oh, Hui-jae tells him that she’s already won; Moon-young and Kang-tae are too weak to stay together. But Director Oh says that people stay together because they’re weak.

Director Oh elaborates that people lean on each other and that’s what makes them human. When will Hui-jae become human, he wonders. Before the police take Hui-jae away, Director Oh asks her what she did with Park Ok-ran.

Hui-jae calls Ok-ran a great actress, and we see that before, Hui-jae would send her notecards with screen directions like “Walk down the hall and hum.” Hui-jae says that Ok-ran has left the stage now, and in return, Director Oh says that Hui-jae should leave the stage too. He watches as the car drives off, with her laughing inside.

Later, Director Oh gets Kang-tae settled in Moon-young’s bed and hooked up to an IV. Director Oh assures Moon-young that Kang-tae will wake up soon, but the worry never leaves her face. When Director Oh leaves, Moon-young sits by Kang-tae’s side and takes his hand, which is now bandaged up.

“You get hurt because of me every single time,” Moon-young says, tears streaming down her face. She remembers what her mom said, about them being the same, and she continues that she’ll ruin his life if they stay together.

Meanwhile, Sang-in is at the police station desperately trying to reach Moon-young or Kang-tae or anyone. Ha, apparently, after Moon-young ran off, he was pulled over for making an illegal U-turn and nearly hitting a deer. He’s been stuck at the station since, having no idea what’s happened.

Joo-ri and Seung-jae finally come to Sang-in’s rescue, and Joo-ri assures him that, according to Jae-soo, Moon-young and Kang-tae are fine. Still in the dark, Joo-ri asks what happened. Sang-in doesn’t go into details, but he does say that the couple have it so hard, as if some mean god is relentlessly sending them misfortunes.

Joo-ri brings up the law of the total number of misfortunes. They all have their set amount of happiness and misfortune assigned. And since the couple has endured all their misfortunes, they’re sure to get their happiness soon. To that, Sang-in smiles, while behind them, Seung-jae shudders from the cheesiness.

Jae-soo is still with Sang-tae, who can’t stop bragging about the way he saved his brother and sister. Jae-soo is proud of him (as am I), but he does worry when Kang-tae will wake up — is he Sleeping Beauty or something? In response, Sang-tae says that Sleeping Beauty needs a kiss, hee.

Eventually, much into the night, Kang-tae wakes up alone. He stumbles out of bed and runs to his room, relieved to find his brother sound asleep. He turns and sees Moon-young there waiting for him, smiling sadly. He starts to say that he had a really long nightmare, and she tells him that it was real.

With that, Moon-young takes Kang-tae downstairs to talk, and she surprises him by telling him to move out. She explains that she’s not an empty can, that she has feelings too, so she can never forget how much she made the brothers suffer. And she knows that the brothers won’t be able to forget either.

“Rather than forget it,” Kang-tae says, “we can overcome it.” He’s confident that he can think of today’s events as nothing but a nightmare. But she just tells him to stop acting like everything’s okay. If he stayed, he’d be wearing a mask around her just as he did around Sang-tae, and she doesn’t want that.

Moon-young orders Kang-tae to leave with Sang-tae tomorrow. She gets up to leave, but he grabs her and asks if she’s being sincere. Her expression cold, she says that she is, and that she wants to go back to living alone. He reluctantly lets her go, and she escapes to her room. Once alone, she quietly tells herself, “You did well.”

The next morning, Kang-tae wakes Sang-tae, hugging him and thanking him for saving them. Curious, Sang-tae then asks why a nice person like Nurse Park would try to harm them. Kang-tae tries to be careful with his words and explains that she was only pretending to be nice.

In reality, Kang-tae says, Nurse Park hated seeing people happy. That reminds Sang-tae of Do Hui-jae’s book The Murder of the Witch of the West, which had a character who killed anyone who was happy. They both agree that Nurse Park and the character are horrible people.

The brothers turn to look at Sang-tae’s giant stuffed dinosaur. Since the dinosaur was a gift from Nurse Park, Kang-tae figures they should throw it out. “No,” Sang-tae argues. “Dooly’s mom didn’t do anything wrong. The person who gave it to me is bad, but Dooly’s mom isn’t.” Kang-tae smiles, saying that he’s right.

In her room, Moon-young is still in bed, unable to stop thinking about when Kang-tae got hurt. She hears Kang-tae at the door telling her that he left breakfast and that he’s going to the hospital, but she doesn’t answer.

Kang-tae joins Sang-tae downstairs, and he hesitantly asks what he would do if Moon-young asked them to move out. Naturally, Sang-tae says that they would have to take her with them. And if she told them to go alone, he would tell her “Over my dead body.” At first, Kang-tae laughs, and then he nods, determined.

At OK Hospital, Kang-tae turns in his letter of resignation. Kang-tae tells Director Oh that he’ll be taking a break, and Director Oh smiles and says that he’s taking a break too — he feels he has to take responsibility for what happened. Kang-tae is saddened to hear this, but even so, he asks that he can have one last session.

Kang-tae admits that he lied to Moon-young. When he thinks about Do Hui-jae and how unfairly his mom died, it’s actually unbearable. Director Oh nods with understanding. “Being together torments you,” he says. “But if you break up, it’ll be equally painful. If both options feel like death, wouldn’t it be better to suffer together?”

Director Oh figures that Kang-tae wanted to kill Hui-jae, so why didn’t he? Hearing that Kang-tae stopped because he thought of Moon-young, Director Oh says that that’s his answer. The one who torments him can also be the one who saves him.

Back at the mansion, Moon-young comes downstairs, and Sang-tae immediately wants to show her his homework. She tells him that the homework doesn’t matter anymore, because she’s not publishing her book. She asks him to move out, and, just as he said he would, he says, “Over my dead body!”

Later, Sang-in and Seung-jae come by when Moon-young is covering up the furniture with sheets. Sang-in is horrified to learn that she’s selling the house, and even more so that she wants to quit writing. When Moon-young walks away, Seung-jae suggests they simply find another writer to work with.

Sang-in looks at Seung-jae incredulously, saying he was never in this for the money. He knows that writing fairy tales is Moon-young’s only way of speaking to the world. So Moon-young saying she’s quitting is pretty much her saying she’s given up on living.

After Kang-tae’s impromptu therapy session, he tells Director Oh that he’ll still come by to visit — maybe even plant a tree out in the garden.

Kang-tae returns home and finds Moon-young in bed, in the middle of a nightmare. He places the Mang-tae doll in her hand to calm her, inadvertently waking her up. Seeing that he’s still here, she tells him to move out already; he’s the one who always said he didn’t want people leaning on him.

Besides, she says, people like her are meant to live alone and not with others. But he argues that that’s impossible for her: “Because now, you know how it feels to have a warm heart and full stomach.” He leans in, touching her cheek, and tells her to admit that she’s just a kid longing to be loved.

Moon-young looks at Kang-tae, that exact longing in her eyes, but she snaps herself out of it and goes under the covers. Ever persistent, Kang-tae asks if she wants to hear a story (ignoring her protests).

“A long time ago, there lived two brothers who cared for each other very much. One day, it was the harvest season, so they both harvested rice. The older brother was worried his little brother might run out of rice, so he secretly carried a sack of rice at night and left it in front of his little brother’s house. The same day, the little brother also carried a sack of rice and put it in front of his older brother’s house… This continued for days.”

Kang-tae concludes that the moral of the story is that loved ones should stick together, so they don’t end up doing pointless work. He admits that Sang-tae came up with the story, and he too believes in it.

Kang-tae gets frustrated when Moon-young still refuses to come out, so he yells at her for being stubborn. That gets her out, demanding to know if he just raised his voice at her. And, HA, he’s so flustered that he blames it on the echo in the room and then scurries out.

The brothers are disappointed that the story failed, with Sang-tae assuming Kang-tae told it in a boring way. Later, they try to get Moon-young to eat dinner, since she hasn’t eaten for days, but she won’t be moved. So Kang-tae makes a call, initiating a Plan B.

The next day, Joo-ri calls Moon-young and says that her mom is sick, and that she’d appreciate it if Moon-young went down and checked on her. Though Moon-young refuses, we immediately cut to her at the apartment. And whataya know, Mom is completely fine.

To Moon-young’s surprise, Mom has prepared a meal for her. “Just go along with it and eat,” Mom says. “Do you know how many people were involved in planning this so we could put something in that empty stomach?” In flashback, we see that Kang-tae called Sang-in, wanting him and the others to help him out. Mom even took the day off work to pull off the charade. Augh, as if I didn’t love them enough already.

Of course, Moon-young can’t deny Mom’s hospitality, so she obediently sits down and eats. She gets emotional, though, when she hears that Kang-tae set this up; she wonders why they’re all so nice to her. Smiling, Mom says it’s because everything about her is lovable — especially the fact that she likes Kang-tae for who he is. Speechless, Moon-young blinks away her tears and continues to eat. Soon, Jae-soo shows up (right on schedule) to be her drinking buddy, and to trash talk Kang-tae.

Meanwhile, Kang-tae and Sang-tae are at the hospital planting a new tree, an ornament with their family portrait hanging on its branch. Kang-tae dedicates the tree to their mom, saying they can visit it whenever they miss her.

The boys sweetly greet their mom, bragging about how well they’ve grown. Kang-tae promises to take care of Sang-tae, but Sang-tae says that their mom didn’t have him to be the protector. Sang-tae is the big brother, and he proved that by saving him.

But now, Sang-tae thinks it’s about time Kang-tae takes care of himself. Because Sang-tae is “too busy,” lol. As Sang-tae walks off, the teary-eyed Kang-tae laughs and says, “You heard that, right, Mom?”

Moon-young comes home late, and by that time, she’s pretty drunk. She sees Sang-tae waiting for her on the stairs and joins him, a languid smile on her face. That smile turns into a pout, though, when he brings up his homework again.

She insists that she’s retiring, and to that, he retorts that he can find another bestie to work with. Offended by his lack of loyalty, she gives in and agrees to take a look at his drawings. Excited, he takes out his sketchbook and flips to a certain page — to a sketch of Kang-tae. Aww, it’s when Kang-tae was smiling in his sleep.

“It’s a happy expression,” he says. “He smiled like this after he told me he liked someone.” He points to the expression, saying it’s not fake, and she starts to cry. He’s confused by her reaction, but she simply says it’s because the drawing is so beautiful. She asks if she can keep it, and he gladly tears it out for her.

Sang-tae still wishes Moon-young would publish her book; he wants to be able to show it off to his mom. She asks what he means, and he explains that he and his brother planted a tree at the hospital.

So the next day, Moon-young visits this tree and gives the brothers’ mom a sincere apology. Kang-tae then appears, having followed her, and tells her that he’s going to keep trying. He’s going to overcome everything, so he wants her to stop pushing him away.

Incredulous, Moon-young walks past. Kang-tae stops her, holding out his hand and saying she should at least take responsibility for his injury. But he’s frustrated still, as she just apologizes and continues on. Now desperate, he calls out, “I love you. I love you, Go Moon-young.”

Moon-young stops in her tracks and turns to face him… only to turn away and keep walking. And, pffffft, he was not expecting that. He starts shouting, “I said I love you! I really love you!” the EXACT same way she did in Episode 4. From afar, a few patients watch him chase after her and joke that love sure changes people.

Once Moon-young is back home, she sits in the study and stares at the now wilted flowers that Kang-tae gave her on their trip. She sets them down when he barges in, and she’s annoyed as he continues to say that he loves her.

She starts to threaten him, meaning to say that she’s going to rip his mouth, but he kisses her and asks if she meant this. She’s too stunned to speak, even more so as he picks her up and gets her on the desk. Slowly, slowly, he leans in to kiss her again, as she slowly, almost painfully, leans away.

 
COMMENTS

I hate to say this, but this was the weakest episode, by far. It’s sad, because initially, the drama was going nowhere but up, consistently exceeding my expectations. But then Episodes 14 and 15 hit and everything fell apart. We had all this buildup, of this ghost haunting our characters, and it led to a disappointing payoff. It led to a confrontation that had me cringing into oblivion. Jang Young-nam’s acting as Do Hui-jae was way over the top, but I can’t even blame her. I have to blame the writing, because it took Do Hui-jae and made a laughable cartoon out of her. If I’d known that this was what we were getting, I would’ve checked out. I would’ve preferred it if the mother remained a ghost — a traumatic but intangible roadblock. And now I’m thinking of what the drama could’ve been, had it taken a more psychological horror approach rather than a real one.

I will say, though, that Sang-tae saving his siblings saved the episode for me. In fact, all of my favorite characters saved it. They were, and are, the one thing that’s kept me locked in this drama. I mean, thinking back to where they started, the amount of growth is unbelievable. For instance, the brothers were in this intense but toxic relationship, and it gradually turned into a genuine and healthy love. There’s more openness, more understanding. But most importantly, there’s a connection without being tied together. It’s like they finally found a way to be brothers but still have their own identities, their own lives. So, that moment with their mom’s tree was monumental. For years, Kang-tae had been hurt by what his mom said, about him being born to take care of his brother. But all that pain washed away when Sang-tae denied that claim. Kang-tae needed to hear that, even if it wasn’t from his mom.

Of course, it’s not just the brothers. The couple has gone through incredible growth too. The entire romance started with Moon-young seeing Kang-tae as a pretty object and wanting to keep him. With Kang-tae seeing Moon-young as a pest in his already miserable life. Now, things couldn’t be more different. Just compare the knife-stabbing scene in the first episode to the pen-stabbing scene in this episode. There was so much more meaning in Kang-tae’s save, so much more pain and sadness in their eyes. Which leads me to all the parallels. The parallel I just mentioned was certainly effective, but it was all the parallels after that really got me. Kang-tae had to spend the last few days in Moon-young’s shoes, and it was hilarious. For the first time ever, he was the pest vying for attention. He was the one putting himself out there. It was hilarious but also sweet, because it was coming from real love.

Real quick, I want to bring up my recapping process. I actually watch each episode twice, once to write the recap and once to take the screencaps. It can be tiring, but it can also be surprisingly enlightening. Because, I’ll admit it, the first time I watched this episode, I thought it was completely stupid and pointless. I thought to myself, why do we have to spend a whole hour on Moon-young sulking? Why, when her one roadblock is sitting in jail? Then, on my second viewing, her sulking made sense. Her roadblock was never her mom, but the idea of her mom. Or, more specifically, the idea of this family tie hurting everything she touches. That’s been her fear her entire life, and to have it happen right in front of her… Eesh. On top of that, she could see that it bothered Kang-tae. I appreciated that she acknowledged that, and that he acknowledged that in his therapy session. What they went through, it’s not easy to get over.

It’s not easy, but it’s possible. The first time Kang-tae said he could overcome his trauma, I didn’t believe him. But the second time he said it, at the end, I did believe. Because by then, he accepted that it was still bothering him and that it’s something he has to work on. Hopefully, in the drama’s final hour, Moon-young will accept that they can work through their troubles and still be happy together. That there’s a reason why Kang-tae and everyone else is fighting for her.

Thanks so much for the recap, @sailorjumun! And yes, you are sooooooo right about Episode 15 - wow, it nearly sank everything!

The storyline of episodes 13-15 has basically been a bit of a disaster. As others have said before, DHJ was far more threatening as a shadowy figure than as a real person. Nurse Park’s threats were irritating rather than scary – and it felt so fake to declare she was indeed DHJ, throwing so many inconsistencies and unexplained happenings to the wind, without even trying to give a reason for them. She became a badly plotted caricature villain – we didn’t need it. What happened, writer-nim?

But for me, the episodes were still saved by the use of parallels (repetitions and reverses). They came thick and fast in this episode – the deer was nearly hit again! ST became the hero rather than the victim when he faced DHJ the second time, MY became KT’s safety pin to stop him killing DHJ, KT saying to MY, “You just want to be loved”, the repeat of the water pipe excuse, MY being drunk on the stairs with ST in a repeat of the earlier KT/MY version, and, most brilliantly, KT repeating MY’s glorious, “I love you!”. These repetitions/reverses feel like a reward for the loyal viewer – we get the joke and it makes us feel as if we are part of this family. So although the main story about DHJ was a serious own goal on the drama's part, there was still enough to make me smile.

I can tell you this much, It is so worth watching it till the end (I cannot wait for your recap for the final ep). I have found the mother the weakest part of the storyline, but these three, this family.. honestly, they slay me every time!!

Sang-Tae yelling 'over my dead body' about being kicked out of the house was freaking hilarious.. every single time!!

I'm glad they end the Do Hui Jae issue quickly. It is pretty clear the writer needed filler, so the writer went with this nonsense. That being said I laughed when Sang Tae hit her with the book. At the end of the day this drama is about growth and that is what happened. All of our characters grew, Sang Tae the most. Even the relationship between KT and MY grew and they thankfully didn't have the typical kdrama separation. They worked through it and ended with a kiss and that stupid deer, ha. As Sang Tae says, it is better to kiss than fight.

I don't think they had a real choice -- at this point even the writers must have thought, "oh, c'mon..."

This was truly a Psycho episode in a schizo sense: first half nothing but scenery-chewing awfulness and then a second half of lovely warm moments.

I am glad they ended it quickly though it suddenly fell flat. i think they should have just left it at Ok Ran being a crazy fan of the dead mother.
I second you on the growth of all our characters', in that regard I think the writer did a fine job. i loved to see KT also growing bolder in this episode and not listening to MY telling him to leave. And persisting in telling her he loved her.

Its definitely better to kiss than fight. ST really gave good advice.

I lost on those "over my dead body" remarks 😭 (how is this thing funny and it's a win statement?). Care for any explanation?

On a serious note, I love the pacing of this drama. So poignantly crafted by incorporating many previous scenes, only in reversed circumstances. I also love writernim just keep a simple plot about MY's mom without exploring so much about the mystery/ illogical behind her survival. Obviously, DHJ is just real PSYCHE. She didn't need a solid reason to kill someone, and she's truly living in her dream world (mimicking her 'boring' novel 🙈). IOTNBO is definitely not emphasizing about both Moms, but rather a journey of our trio healingness. For me, anything is possible in dramaland, if it doesn't go with your brain...just throw the logic out of window and enjoy the show ✌.

I can't expressed enough my satisfying on ST's growth here. A character that isn't defined by his autism but a celebrated person who just had as much as his own emotion and space in his circle. He became a brother which he truly envisioned, coveting much in seeking acknowledgement about he being a protector, and mostly open his heart on accepting MY as his true family (and introducing to mom). His conversation with MY about being an illustrator really shows that he is matured/capable enough, shed his own inhibitions to rise to an occasion and be a hero of his own. By far, this is one of the best character that I have encountered in dramaland that will remains longer in my memory (apart from JiSung-KMHM 😊).

I guess now "predator" becomes the "prey" by the end scene 🤣🤣🤣...or it is never been so? 😅 To the next recap (mixed emotion here 🥰😭)

Bloopers: did anyone saw the preview for last ep? MY's hair was braided and tighten while she lying down her head beside KT but a different hairstyle in final episode? Ooppppsssss 🙊

Couldn't agree more. Moms just one of obstacle they had, the important things are their growth as a character. Maybe the show didn't explain explicitly about DHJ but after watching all episodes, I don't care anymore.
The reverse Love Confession by Kang Tae, Sang Tae who saved the siblings and proud of himself, and drinking session with Jaesu (serengeti and spaghetti, LOL), saved the episode

Some excellent thoughts on ST- he really did grow and change once they moved to Ok premises. Sure there were many who helped him along the way but he did a large amount of self reflection and overcame such a traumatic past.At the end of it, he really fulfilled the role he had envisioned for himself as the hyung who protects his baby brother, an illustrator who earns enough to give his dosaengs allowance and finds fulfilment through his art. On top of the emotional growth, he also provided much needed levity in the last few episodes. His note on how GT tends to make even interesting things boring and how Black pink is the hot item of the moment 😂

I also thought this episode was weak. Slow. Yeah, Moon Young needed some time to process everything, but not a fan of her noble idiocy.

Sang Tae saving Kang Tae and Moon Young was awesome though.
So this is how Do Hui Jae's story wraps up? I read theories and hoped that Nurse Park was actually not her. Or that there would be an explanation of how she survived. She was much more menacing as an shady, ghostly nightmare. Once a villain or mastermind is revealed, it's hard for them to be ultra interesting or compelling. They were mysterious when they were unknown. Building up my expectation caused me to be more disappointed. Sometimes, I had to take a break from reading more theories and let the drama reveal its story.

I'm glad that the drama actually showed a main character getting some therapy. Kang Tae's array of "I Love You"s back to Moon Young was a cute callback.

The brothers had some good moments. Sang Tae telling Kang Tae what he needed to hear in front of their mother's tree was lovely. And Sang Tae always has the best lines -> "Over my dead body!"

I have not watched the finale yet (will soon after this post, lol).

Thank you for another quick recap, @sailorjumun! Your efforta and insights is much appreciated.
This episode was also weak for me. I don't like the Do Hui Jae arc at all. I get that the story needed a climactic ending before wrapping up but it could've been done a different way. We know that MY, KT and ST are struggling due to actions of Do Hui Jae but the healing can still happen even without a physical vanquishing of the evil dragon. The ghostly apparitions of the mom was enough and didnt like seeing her come back to life after KDH's decription of how she was killed.
I like that he copied MY as he yelled he love her but she ignored him like what he did back in episode 4. Karma is a b*tch 😂. Yes love did change KT for the better.

I understand why Show wanted all 3 to struggle against Evil Mom, and needed Sang-tae to strike the decisive blow. Character growth and all that. But Kang-tae should have just pulverized her immediately when he had the chance.

Sang-tae was the highlight of this episode for me. When Do Hui-jae was about to stab Kang-tae I was yelling for ST to come to the rescue and he did! And all throughout the episode he was so proud of it, it was so cute to watch him boast about it to Jae-su.

And when Moon-young wanted the brothers to leave but ST wouldn't have any of it. I'm glad that as much as MY tried to push the brothers away they weren't budging. Characters are so important for me when I watch a drama and in this one they have been written so well, especially our main trio. The growth of these characters and their relationships is my favourite aspect of this drama and is what kept me interested from the start.

Augh! I was really disappointed with the writer for this episode. The Noble idiocy role she heaped on MY made me mad because I feel it doesn't fit her character.
The evil-mom trope even made me more mad coz it added nothing to the plot as far as I'm concerned.
So I decided to be shallow in this episode and focused more on the last scene(which was so sexy!) which did it for me. Augh! I need me some KSH!!! The way he picked MY 😍 although why she kept leaning away from that gorgeous specimen I will never know!

Do Hui Jae storyline was significantly shorter shows how insignificant she has become to them but still something they needed to overcome.
It's also important to understand something : the ghost haunting our characters was a memory, a perspective of our characters just to realize they don't have as much power as we imagine them to have.
People wanting something more intense out of it makes no sense because that's just it. We are no longer defenseless children.
The witch was given her own reality check just with the smack of a book!
This drama is amazing!

I think this is a really good take on it, and I can appreciate that particular storyline more now if I think of it that way. Memories really are like that, it's why people can look at the past with rose tinted glasses and nostalgia or deal with lifelong traumas but when confronted with them in the present they often don't have the same power as in our imagination.

What got me in this episode was when MY realized how much KT loves her while she was looking at ST oppa's drawing. It's as if she was overwhelmed that someone can love and appreciate her this much and that she caused that person to be genuinely happy. Major major props to SYJ for this scene.

I have to agree though that ep 15 has been the weakest so far. But to be shallow a bit, it's one of the strongest fashion and styling wise. The glam team were really going for the Grecian/Victorian/Roman goddess look with MY, aren't they? She just looks so gorgeous while wallowing in noble idiocy. (And LV's marketing team probably worked overtime as many of the pieces KMY wore from ep 15 and 16 are from LV.)

P.S. Thanks for the fast recaps, @sailorjumun! Really enjoy reading your take on IOTNBO.

Speaking of makeup, I like that Maeng just gave her a "balanced" look that really complemented her features. Usually the focus is either on the eyes or lips (i.e. Cheon Songyi in particular made a lot of lipstick brands popular from YFAS). The lovely light peach/pink glittery eye makeup complements the nude lipstick that KMY almost always wears. Helps that SYJ is already very beautiful to begin that the makeup and her overall styling just elevates her beauty to another level.

Yes! That scene was a reminder to me that the idea of being loved (like, loved for who she is in a healthy way) is still a really new concept for MY. As someone how knows that the deepest truths come out when we dream (i.e. her nightmares), how nice for her to see that happy truths also emerge in sleep. It was heart-squeezing.

I'm so glad that they moved back to earlier MY style, too. After she cut her hair, she started looking just a bit too cutesy for me (the puffy, little girl dresses). It's nice to see her looking a little more sleek and grown up again, especially for the last scene. They could have been an ad for something, wow.

copy/pasting my comment from reddit bc i really thought nurse park was not the mother. i've been clowned but i don't even care!
---
i realized 10 minutes into this episode that i really didn't care if nurse park is the mother or not. these characters needed to surmount this "ill-fated" obstacle to get to a place where their healing could begin in earnest. they needed to stumble upon the ugly truth of what happened so they could overcome it together. they needed a reset to make sure the family they have built together would not be shaken, that even if they were made to start all over again from the beginning, they would get to this place of acceptance and love in no time. i think the show approached mom's role in a similar manner, it was never about whether she lived or died. she caused irreparable damage to these kids, whose lives would never be the same bc of the shadow she cast on them. she is their trauma personified, and she came back with vengeance, bigger and badder than ever before. she made them face their worst nightmares, relive their most painful memories, and she expected them to cower in fear. she wanted to prove that people will always remain prisoners to their trauma, that you can never win the battle against the demons nurtured by your hate. she wanted both kang tae and moon young to attack her, to strike with the intention to kill, to prove this hollow point. how beautiful was it then that when they got pushed to the precipice of her twisted scheme, both chose to retreat, to hold on to the strength that got a chance to blossom due to their suffering, to give just as must power to the good in their hearts, as the bad that haunted them all these years. moon young and kang tae exemplified the growth they've experienced through the course of the show in that moment.

i find it especially powerful that we started this journey with the boy who fed on nightmares, which was the state kang tae had been suspended in all his life, and got to this point where he overcame the need to suppress his bad memories and faced them head on. the shot of the three of them as kids after sang tae knocks out nurse park brings everything full circle, and represents their liberation from the strings that have held them back all their lives.

so at the end of the day, i don't care if she is either the real do hui jae, or the ghost of her malice imprinted upon someone else. in her quest to destroy their humanity, she only ended up making them braver, causing them to be better equipped to move on, to live, and to thrive. this aligns perfectly with the overarching theme of "healing" that has anchored the writing. do hui jae (or not) was but a plot device to bolster this sentiment.

Sang-tae knocking out Do Hui Jae with the book and seeing the shot of their younger selves as the evil villain was "vanquished" really saved the mom arc for me (I was cringing along with sailorjumun at the over the top acting). I think you brought up a great point. Like you said, evil mom was their trauma personified and the main characters had a chance to face their nightmares and essentially given a chance for true healing. In the end, the story dealt with these three characters getting past their traumas and learning they are deserving of happiness and love. Seeing it from that perspective helped me better appreciate the arc. However, I think if I ever rewatch the show I might be fast-forwarding some of mom's parts.

Wonderful analysis of the mom arc @dogemama. It sucks that in a drama of this caliber writer-nim couldn't find a way for our trio to conquer their traumas without an out of tone/illogical physical apparition of the big-bad. I guess they needed a physical show down keeping with it's fairy tale theme 🤷 But like you so eloquently put, overcome they did and thankfully this last moment crazy didn't ruin the on-going recovery path these 3 were on. Coz for me, they are better adjusted thanks to love - love for themselves,love for each other, love from the adorable roof top extended family and yes, even some of the habitants of Ok hospital.

haha i will admit the execution was less than stellar. i wonder if it's bc the show needed one more episode? bc i wouldn't trade any moment we got through the course of the show for something else. everything felt very intentional, and imo there wasn't a single moment that was misplaced. so if we really needed to sacrifice any arc, i'm completely fine with it being mom's.

Yeah, the show definitely could hav taken another EP or two IMO if they wanted to introduce the mom persona. It also would have served to have shown GT and MY processing the trauma with the help of some actual medical professionals. For a show that always showed the struggles of the mind with such empathy, I do wish they had shown the benefits of actual therapy more. 😃

Kudos to the writer for at least keeping our trio true to their natures while giving steady growth over the period of 16 episodes.

Holy yes - this is exactly how it read for me, too. And I also don't care if she's the real Do Hui-jae or not, since the ep didn't drag it out and made it clear that it wasn't about HER, but about what she represented.

Also love your point about her only making them braver - and inherent in all this is that they had a choice about that, too. But leaning on each other ("She's still my mom" / "You promised me" / "Don't hurt my siblings!") they were able to choose out of strength. That last scene of them as children vanquishing the witch was beautiful.

Yes, the young actors really stood out in this story.Esp mini GT this episode.Mini MY and ST also pulled off their parts terrifically. My heart broke when it was young GT who was trembling with grief, fear and resentment when the Nurse 'explained' why their mother had to die. And the last shot of the 3 young ones after the witch was vanquished. Now that's the kinda story telling I had come to expect from the show.

Mini GT was astounding in all the scenes he got in the show - the one where he yells that he wants his brother to die and that he belongs to himself or the one in the cafe when old MY says you are just a kid wanting to be loved or the one in episode 15. This child actor has shined in every single shot. Would love to watch him - can't believe such a young kid can act so naturally!

5

Mini GT (Moon Woo Jin) is a phenomenal actor for someone who was only born in 2009! I have seen him in quite a few dramas, and every time he emotes so well and in such traumatic circumstances every one. Though my favourite performance of him I think is in Beauty Inside where the FL turns into him and "he" ends up being auditioned to act in a drama and just knocks it out of the park. I really look forward to him doing more and hopefully one day gets to play a character in his own right.

And also kudos to KSH who clearly observed Moon Woo Jin carefully and was able to copy some of his mannerisms as an adult. For the first time in ages I almost could buy they were the same person: respect.

you're comment really speaks to me! I also don't really care about the mother cos in the end it is about our three protagonists.

also I kinda figured that the whole being dropped in the lake etc could have all been part of the father's messed up memories (the guy was dying from a brain tumor) so I didn't really think to take much of what he was saying. It also contributes to your theory that this woman was also his trauma personified and the source of his own nightmares that he lived with. What a sad existence for the father.

Super proud of big brother Sang-tae! I love how he developed as a hyung from simply talking about it, to saving for their camping van, feeding and giving his dongsaeng their allowance, to really saving their lives. And once again, I really appreciate using the trio’s kid versions, showing that they’re actually healing from their childhood trauma.

However, I somehow wish Kang-tae told Sang-tae about Nurse Park being the butterfly. I feel that knowing that he defeated the butterfly would help him heal. And she’s in prison anyway. I think being an actual person and knowing exactly where she is would make him worry less. But, I don’t know, maybe what Kang-tae did was for the best.

I think present Do Hui-jae wasn’t established enough for me to care about her character. When she was taken by the police, all I thought was, “Okay. Bye”. And up to the last minute, I was hoping for a good explanation and connection with the past Do Hui-jae that we know. The revelation of the reason why she killed the brothers’ mom made me even less convinced that she managed to stay ‘behaved’ for 20 years.

Anyway, I liked the tie back to past fairy tales and the role reversals, with Moon-young being Kang-tae’s safety pin and Kang-tae being the one chasing Moon-young. And I’m glad Kang-tae had a therapy session with Director Oh. I hope he’d continue to do that.

Also, I love how the other characters showed their love and support for our little family. The concern of every single one of them warms my heart. The trio will never be alone again <3

Funny that the person who they rush on saving was the one who saved them ultimately.

The Mom arc was mishandled. I just can’t care enough anymore for why Mom did what she did. The scariest films were those which did not show the monsters on screen. They let the audience imagination give it their own individual face. When we had Mom’s face (albeit a new one), instead of a scary monster, we got a pitiful coat. (I hate the MY-GT-sharp-object situation. Can’t he just stop her with her wrist?! 😒)

Luckily, all that was done within the first 20 minutes. I will just pretend that Ep 15 started with ST thwacking the witch with the fairytale book. He was so cool there – a fist-pump-to-the-sky moment.

The episode was full of callbacks. I am happy that this is MY’s chance to be pursued, courted. Let’s just say the beach scene was a painful investment and we are now earning the dividends. I guffawed during the ‘I love you’ scene. You saw it coming but funny, nonetheless. Seo Yeji’s micro-expressions were jjang. You can already see MY’s reserve crumbling. I laugh again when GT arrive in the castle and said ‘I love you’ as if just continuing from the previous conversation. I was thinking, “Did you walk home while shouting that?” Then, we know what happened next… 😉😉😉

If we look at it from the drama framework, the two instances do show how much MY and GT have grown. The first episode,MY is reacting on blind rage and GT is on auto pilot, just going through motions of life and doesn't particularly care about self preservation and so instinctively grabs the knife with his bare ✋. In this scene, MY is still going in with rage,but it's tinged with so many complicated emotions. GT knows she'll regret it for the rest of her life if she strikes the woman and so he intervenes. Th e first time he didn't particularly care what happened to himself but this time he cares deeply about both of their futures. Like so many beanies have been saying, the call backs in this show are rich with character growth and it's a joy to watch.
I still wish Dr.Oh would tell GT it's okay to wrist grab when faced with a pointy,sharp ended object,though 😂

There was so much that was just right in this episode for me.
I laughed out loud when MY's mother got hit over the head with the Best Book of Fairy Tales. Perfect. She always meant more in the imagination of the children than in reality. The scene afterwards of the three children said it all. They had put their demon to rest, and they did it with the time tried wisdom of tales that keep being told.
The butterfly hug between KT and ST was so perfect too.
The reverse sleeping beauty was too cute for words.
ST's "over my dead body" was perfect to cut through MY's guilt and grief.
And all the way through we get the message that people are meant to be together so they can lean on each other, support each other, and band together to help out someone like MY who is overwhelmed by bad and sad events. We heal each other through love and acceptance.
I loved that ST told KT that he was boring.
And I loved most of all the contrasting mothers - the evil, narcissistic, destructive one and the warm nurturing one. We all have a bad mother and a good mother embedded deep in our psyche.
It was liberating to hear ST tell KT that he wasn't born to look after him too. His wisdom cuts through everything.
I love how it takes us back to the beginning - the first story about facing up to your fears if you want to be truly human, and as this episode ends with KT following MY as he did when he was a little boy, but this time calling out how much he loves her just as she did earlier.
Beautiful tight writing.

Until the end (guess everyone watched Ep.16, right?--but rest assure I would spoil next episode's plot), this is an interesting story, but it's failed to touch me.

It may not be as bad as it seems. Moon-yeong and Kang-tae is almost like a role reversal in this very episode, and it is still fun to watch. Do Hui-jae's storyline ended so quickly, in the beginning of this episode, but she is like a ghost for the rest of this (and next) episode, because that affect all three of them, although Sang-tae is out of the woods almost instantly. If you have watched SKY Castle, you would have known that parents like Hui-jae is not a very out-of-the-ordinary character, although she may be a bit over the top.

I am glad that the screenwriter didn't, as I expected last episode, playing the Sang-tae-is-Moon-yeong-blood-brother card, but everything else is pretty predictable. The screenwriter is now playing safe just try to make audience love her story. I guess it is a bit sad. That cliffhanging almost-kiss is executed very well though.

The rest, I guess I will talk about it on next episode's recap.

First time commenting on this drama but I'm actl rly pleasantly surprised with how ep 15 turned out! Going into it, and esp aft watching behind the scene interviews with the cast, I knew that there would be no way out, nurse park rly would be do hui jae, and I was definitely disappointed, because I can't see how she survived that fall. That being said, I was so happy to realise that they only spent 15 min on that plot point and sangtae got to protect his siblings! Instead, more time was spent on showing character growth and fleshing out a v valid concern for moonyoung - she rly didn't want kangtae to be fake around her, in the past he was only able to let down his guard with her, and so I think it's extremely realistic that she wanted to retreat. Esp since kangtae also knew that he was faking it at that time! Also I think this whole arc was worth it to see the unity of the makeshift family that everyone has become! It was so lovely that sangin cared so much for her well being, and that kangtae learned to rely on others to accomplish what he couldn't. I feel like this is all coming out in a mess now but that's what my emotions are like haha I absolutely love the character development and this is really a healing drama! I didn't come expecting a thriller, or a tight mystery, but comfort and healing in this time of uncertainty, and I definitely got it from this family :") I love love love the many parallelisms too, rly shows that the writer had this conclusion in mind and steadily worked towards it! Great job everyone :")

However, we must dare to hope ... I know lately K-dramas' ending are all cliche, like expected happy ending one by one, but I still have seen some very good drama in 2018-19. They surely can do it, as long as they are producing thought-provoking drama, not crowd-pleasing ones.

"It's a Human Heal'l'ing drama" *imitates KSH's voice modulation to accentuate the healing word*
It truly was. And Yes as a messed up ball of emotions I agree with you about the character growth being the best part of this drama.

For once the drama description is proved to be right. The overuse of healing drama made me a wee bit skeptical but I had my faith in KSH. Happy that he was in this drama and not in trainwreck, unlike his fellow colleagues.

Because I fervently watched and rewatched' every promotional interview/activity for IOTNBO, at one point I started to say the word healing like him 🤣 and after some time even he knew he was overusing the term but it was true so he kept on dragging the healing word (also 'bulldozer' term for MY). Gosh I miss him already 😭

agree so much with everything you said, but especially the part about moon young pushing away kang tae making sense in the context of their relationship. i didn't think it was noble idiocy at all. she said if he started pretending to be okay in front of her she would feel suffocated. of course, bc she's always been able to see through him. this definitely wasn't just a trite case of noble idiocy.

The whole DJH plot line didn't make sense, to me, tbh.
And it even make less sense when nothing about her was explained: not how did she survived, or how she looked she didn't age a year since the accident.
I'll accept it, as she only took 15 minutes from this episode and the rest of it went back to the original path it should never have left.
Loved the rest of the episode, and of course all the "saranghae" scene. I loved to see KT being the one seeking attention and MY being the e
skeptical one.

They could have save it by animation and using the tale of two sisters much better. It's such a pity that they have used the traditional kdrama storyline at the end, like the writer changed and they could have react the hand picking KingKong scene from episode 2 by Sang-tae picking the evil twin sister by her back kicking in rage and surprise and put her behind into the jail and MY having her DNA tested to prove that it was just another crazy fan driven by the revenge of that nosy book critic who almost fell of the stairs.

It could have been another k-drama worth winning in Cannes but it's like a curse with korean productions. Maybe the assembly of elderly heads called the writer to "correct" her too courageous writing.

Well let's be happy the writer dared this much to make us say this was a cinematic beauty. Honestly, if (s)he could have come up with the theories we made about twin sisters being at play in this mom arc, (s)he could have earned a place as "The writer who wrote a 100% perfect non-procedural drama". Anyways, sounds like I am bitter at being clowned by the writer so I will just go and rewatch the clip of ep 15 ending 🤗

On any other day I would have pointed out the fun aspects of the episodes (KSH acting as MY is the best) but no, not today. As a person who loved this drama and rated it to be 95% perfect I just have to rationalize the Mom’s plot to be content. They clowned us all, they clowned us badly but that doesn’t mean I’ll live on with being proved wrong about the mom arc.
First let’s get the facts we got from ep1-14 about MY’s parents, Go Dae Hwan and Do Hui Jae (things aren’t written in its order of revelation):
1. Go Dae Hwan had brain tumor that caused cognitive deterioration mental disorders (symptoms- Hallucination, bouts of rage seen in ep-1,3)
2. His condition started more than 20 years ago, even before the night he attempted to kill his wife Do Hui Jae.
3. Do Hui Jae seems to truly have ASPD although the drama never confirmed this. But if we see her actions it is clear she manifests one or more psychological issues which she purposefully tried to imply on Moon Young to create a clone of her.
This is my rationalization of how things might have happened on the night they fought/confronted each other 20 yrs ago in the castle.
GDH was mortified over his illness and how things are about to affect his family. As a witness to his wife’s abusive behavior towards his child MY, he was having a hard time to think how things would turn out for MY and what type of “monster” his wife was. After few drinks he confronted DHJ while having an episode of rage (part of his mental/neural condition). Things escalated as they both provoked each with other, esp, DHJ as she delved into how the caretaker was obnoxious and got killed due to her intrusive behavior. Blinded by anger and thought of what a horrible person he has been living with, he pushed her. She did fall and hurt her head. MY has definitely witnessed this but the shock made her numb and distorted her memory of what happened afterwards. When he saw the blood flood the floor he realized his actions and quickly dragged the body to basement. But as DHJ wasn’t dead she escaped the castle. (MY has mentioned in an episode that the authority didn’t find a body after searching for the body) Disoriented, clearly drunk, hallucinated GDH then made up an alternate scenario where he disposed the body (Patients with neural complications [eg. Encephalitis, brain tumor] may face time lapse, loss/distortion of memory). The next morning when MY saw her father with muddy shoes that was only him returning after throwing an empty bag in a river.
Now coming to DHJ, she survived the fall and recovered from it. It must have taken a good 2/3 years to go through that AND get the full face plastic surgery. So let’s take 6 yrs out for her makeover. Now fixated on getting revenge and enjoying a second chance at being crazy, she figured out being a medical staff will let her torture her husband. Medical occupation is among the top 5 choices picked by psychopaths (at least according to the series hannibal). Being a highly...

Disappearing of one person so important and with money she earned I don't know if they've reported her death, because father "killed" her by protecting his daughter's soul.

I think they did report her death, I saw munyeong mention in one episode about how her body was searched but never found (that's a definite excuse to rewatch the episodes lol ).
Lemme come up with a rationalization over this issue once I rewatch it in a month. Apparently my love for the drama is so strong that my brain is refusing to accept any plotholes that might tarnish the drama's beauty. I am like a mother trying to make a child perfect by imposing things on it..... oh no that sounds eerily familiar *nervous laughter*

Being a highly intelligent and creative person she disguised herself, kept her demeanor low-key by getting joy from torturing her murderer (Let’s throw in some medical malpractice by her that worsened GDH’s condition because why not). She did keep a tab on MY during those 14 yrs. And that was an obsession which triggered her ep15 actions. Just how 20 yrs ago she was triggered to murder the woman who messed with her daughter, her urge to eliminate factors who/which may change her masterpiece MY resurfaced.

P.S. @sailorjumun for your dedication. Today’s comment was longer than usual and I appreciate it!

love your analogy! i hear ya, i hear ya, i'm trying, and i think i will overcome and heal (thx to the beauty of MY and GT hehe) ...

we kdrama fans are just always in search of the "perfect drama" after experiencing it before with, say, reply series, coffee prince, secret garden, etc. etc. (for me, my ahjussi) ... and this one truly had potential to be that ... but alas, it just fell short cause of the Arc, which is fine but disappointing for the perfectionist ...

so to take ur analogy further, the perfectionist kdrama fan would buy a million types of lotion to moisture his or her dry winter hands ... and then he or she would write to the kdrama writer (joyong in this case), "you had so much potential, but you failed me ... and failures are meant to be discarded." and then the kdrama psycho would kidnap joyong's family and feed them sleeping tranquilizers and grab joyong by the hair and laugh maniacally as he or she takes a pen to stab the imperfect writer with a fountain pen, "BWAHAHAHA."

Thanks @sailorjumun. I can't imagine all the work that goes into your recaps, which are gold. I was also so impressed with the parallels in this episode. *siiigh* I admittedly also really dislike how Hui-jae's story panned out...I wish the drama in this kdrama was amped down a liiiittle by keeping her dead. But anyway enough about that. Despite this setback, Moon-young grew a heckin lot, Kang-tae grew exponentially, and Sang-tae is like a different person and its all for the better. I honestly couldn't ask for more and I'll choose to focus my attention upon these amazing and successful aspects of this drama which made soooo happy and kept me going all these weeks. I wasn't even mad about Moon-young sulking for like an hour and a half. Through in a tragic Shakespearean backstory and I can't imagine anyone would come out mentally unscathed. I actually appreciate how they showed Ju-ri and the entire crew work so hard to be there for the couple. They make a real family and as corny and cliche as that is, it was beautiful and I loved it. Also, as someone who has intrusive and persistent thoughts and imagery, I totally understand why Moon-young fought so hard to be left alone. Man if I was in her place I might have caught the next flight to Neverland to escape the hell that is the mind. So I appreciate that the episode focused upon Kang-tae and Moon-young being so honest about their emotional struggles and admitting that they weren't sure they could do it. Guys what will I do after this drama ends!? I don't think I can watch another kdrama in a while...

Back to ep 16 where I left off...still more than half remaining *snickers*

At first, i felt like DHJ part was cut short and that she suddendly lost her scaryness. But then it dawned on me, that's exactly how she should be. If she remained a ghost,it would have haunted the trio and she would become a fiction of their minds that'll haunt them for life. But instead when she actually showed up and to protect their family,the trio made up their minds to face DHJ head-on and we learned in IOTNBO that facing your problem head-on is the only way to solve them and thats exactly why we felt like DHJ lost her scaryness COZ the trio actually made that happen. And this realisation meant soo much to me, it goes on to show that, the drama is much more than just a kdrama.
And i remmeber kimsoohyun always talkin abt how this was a healing drama and i kept thinking about how a drama can be healing, NOW i know. This drama was truly healing. Where the trio's charcter development made my heart tingle and i grew with them. Loved how MY got to taste get confession from none other than the KT.
But most of all, i wanna thank the writer, who wrote the characters soo well to the point that i cant emphasis it enough. There have been many writers who took away an actors charm by supressing their characters but IOTNBO gave every single charcter their development they truly deserve.

The writer met the right cast to convey a nice story. While the PD found a cast that inspired and pointed him in the right direction as well as a cast that acted his interpretation of a scene very well. I was about to lose it when KSH chose his project because 'Hyde Jekyll and Me' was HB's post gundae drama comeback which was a disaster. Live watching that was painful. Not to mention angel eyes which I watched while being half-ass asleep. I am happy things turned well for IOTNBO. They all deserve praise!

i think both you and @sailorjumun make good, conflicting points. i'm not sure what to believe haha.

@sailorjumun preferred that the mother stay as a ghost because in real life, most of the time, mental difficulties are battling ghosts of our past, like the traumatized ahjussi that fought in the vietnam war. i think she was thinking it would be a better message if the trio conquered the ghosts through different, less dramatic means like love and therapy.

but you make a good point too. HOW would writer-nim show the trio conquering the ghost of dhj??? In such a satisfying way? Love/therapy may be just a cheesy and overdramatic. I'm slowly convincing myself that what we saw may have been the best way: bring dhj back to life and smack her with a book. :) thinking about this more haha ....

i rave at the show for how they handled kmy and dad because sometimes, that's just what happens. words are left unsaid and/or do not necessarily help (even though all of the nurses and therapists insist that you face things head on). sometimes you don't get the chance to say anything, and sometimes there are no regrets but just longing, like with kmy.

and i'm beginning to rave at how kmy and mom was more of a "head-on" ("head-to-book?" hehe) display of confronting one's demons, like when a therapist tells his or her patient to go to the place of one's PTSD.

Exactlyyy, i thought KMY and her dad will be forced to have a relationship they never had. But the writer was true to KMYs character. Just like you said, they never had a relationship but just longing👍.
But then there is MKT, who always thought his mother never cared abt him as she had to care for an autistic son all whilst being a single mother. And when MKT finally realized it,all he could say was how much he missed his mom,ahh god i still remember him breaking down and crying his eyes out😭
I just cant move on from this masterpiece of a drama called IOTNBO😭😭😭

I agree that the DHJ storyline wasn't strong and the MY’s mother’s reveal was so anticlimactic and it makes you wonder if they’ve been building up to this huge reveal that never lived up to the hype. The theories by so many beanies were honestly more interesting, esp the ones about how the head nurse wasn't actually DHJ but the sister.

But now that I’ve had time to think about it and look back, to give a slightly different perspective, I don’t think that they failed to build up to the hype or fell flat - not in the hands of such a talented team. It was a powerful message about how our fears can seem so overwhelming and gripping, but when we face them, they’re actually not that scary. MY’s mother was terrifying when she was a spectre, hovering around MY in every way, in her night terrors, haunting her father. It was the fears of the characters, who we perceived her through, that fuelled her imposing and terrifying presence. And when it all falls away, we (including our trio) realise that she is just human - twisted, overdramatic, sociopathic, yes - but fallible. In the scene with kang tae, the realisation of how small she was next to him and the reminder that he had been training his whole life to protect his brother made it clear that the question was never about whether he was able to overcome her physically. It was more of his own demons that he had to overcome, which he did beautifully. It was never about her. So yes, it was anticlimactic, but it reminded me that it was never about MY’s mother or the murder mystery. The heart of the story was always about our three leads and their growth.

And we have seen so much growth in this episode, that the separation didn't feel like a forced one (I could have done without it of course, but I can understand why moon young closed herself off). We see moon young thinking from the perspective of others for the first time, prioritising the emotional health of kang tae and choosing to push him away. This was a stark contrast to her at the start where she does everything to get what she wants, without much thought for the feelings of the other person. The role reversal of kang tae having to chase moon young and express himself was also demonstrative of so much growth, I especially appreciated the parallels and how he is now the one holding on and refusing to let go, not out of duty but because it's better to be tormented together and rather than to be tormented apart. To work through their problems together, no matter how painful, rather than to run away. And we have always talked about how sang tae would be the one to save them, and our dear sang tae oppa really delivered on all fronts in this episode <3

This, this, this. I really like your interpretation of this episode. And while I too could've done without the separation I think it was really important for Moon Young's character growth. We get definite confirmation (although we already knew it) that she is definitely not an empty can by puting the brothers emotional well being above her own. And it was also a good throwback to all the times she claimed she will never let KT go, yet now like KT said in an earlier episode she does because she really loves him. It's proof that she loves him beyond selfish or superficial reasons.

well said @omichan!

like everyone else, nurse park story arc ... ugh ... i accept it less than you do. :)

but like you, i disagree with those who don't understand MY's behavior. the show was actually surprisingly brilliant about this. when someone you love suffers, guilt naturally ensues as a way to control one's feelings, fear of the situation. there are countless examples of irrational guilt, such as those who blame themselves for not finding their deceased love one's illness/cancer earlier. or those who had a fight with their loves one right before he or she gets into a car/plane crash and dies.

i actually think the show didn't make MY guilty enough. she pushed KT away meekly a couple times, but when sexy times came along ..... hehehe, what guilt??? actually, it was a perfect amount of guilt. :)

Despite the certain flaws of the Mom story, I just want to say that the moment Sang-Tae hit her with a huge thick book on the head was GOLD for me, the most precious thing in this episode, and I personally wish that this were a trope for dealing with this type and many other types of vilains in dramaland, instead of just having the main leads, after suffering some more abuse in the last episode, stare at the bad person heavily, and then later are upset when the villain (for example) kills him/herself. This book approach is just so much more satisfying.
