Behind Your Touch: Episodes 3-4

Our psychic vet discovers a gruesome crime, and unable to ignore a person in distress, she sets out to solve it with her new neighbor’s help. However, her powers alienate her further and her pervert title destroys her credibility. Still, our psychic vet chooses to believe that the fish-out-of-water detective hides a heart of gold under his prickly exterior, and if anyone will trust her crazy claims, it’s him.

Behind Your Touch: Episodes 3-4

Ever since gaining her powers, our reluctant heroine finds herself in a predicament, but as the adage goes, with great power comes great hair loss responsibility. Though no one around her believes in her outlandish tale of butt-touching psychometry (especially not our case-obsessed cop), Ye-boon cannot stand by while knowing the truth, so once she realizes that her underclassman is a criminal, she takes matters into her own hands.

Of course, a neighborhood vet has no business solving crimes, and Ye-boon’s first attempt to bust into her underclassman’s house ends up with her touching someone else’s butt… Ok-hee’s boyfriend to be exact. Unfortunately, Ye-boon sees another woman in his memories and warns her friend to double-check.

In the meantime, Ye-boon returns to her underclassman’s place, and with the help of some cats, she learns the door passcode and enters his house to find the missing streamer. However, her search gets cut short when the underclassman comes home earlier than expected, and Ye-boon escapes by the skin of her teeth — or in this case, her butt.

Behind Your Touch: Episodes 3-4

Looking like a mad woman with a windowsill around her hips, Ye-boon swallows her pride and asks Jang-yeol for help. Despite their antagonistic relationship, Ye-boon believes Jang-yeol is a trusting person and hopes that he will believe her, too. She mentions the memory she saw when she touched his backside, but to Jang-yeol, that incident is one of shame rather than pride.

Although these two continue butting heads — he catches her being a creep at best and a sex offender at worst — Ye-boon still places her trust in Jang-yeol and asks him to show up as she dives headfirst into danger… and, oh boy, is Ye-boon reckless. Without any plan or afterthought, she finds and breaks into the missing streamer’s apartment and comes face-to-face with the underclassman.

Having been caught, the underclassman decides one more death means nothing at this point and chokes Ye-boon. As she fights for her life, Jang-yeol comes to the rescue in the nick of time, and they capture the underclassman and save the streamer. Given everything that has happened, Jang-yeol decides to believe Ye-boon and use her powers as his ticket back home.

Behind Your Touch: Episodes 3-4

While Jang-yeol was saving Ye-boon, the rest of his team solved a huge drug case and now bask in their new laurels. This slight only invigorates Jang-yeol more, which means Ye-boon is whisked around from butt to butt as his hunting dog. Though she tries to weasel her way out of helping, Jang-yeol solves all her “problems” with even more preposterous solutions, and all Ye-boon gets for her efforts are a couple of burned fingertips.

Using her injury as an excuse to go to the convenience store, Ye-boon meets up with Sun-woo who has recently moved to her neighborhood. The two share snacks together after his shift, and during their conversation, they learn that they both lost their moms. Sun-woo tells her that this place is her hometown and says that the air is good here as are the people. Ye-boon’s ears perk up at his comment, and her hopes skyrocket when he mentions being interested in someone.

Just as Ye-boon starts relishing her powers, they disappear, but the one truly devastated by this news is Jang-yeol. In an attempt to bring them back, he buys every hand product available and treats Ye-boon like a queen. Though he wants to know if her powers returned, Jang-yeol balks at the idea of Ye-boon touching his rear to check, but luckily for him, Ok-hee walks in right then.

After the boyfriend event where Ok-hee learned that her now-ex is a trans woman, Ye-boon revealed her secret to her friend. Thus, with Ok-hee’s butt, Ye-boon finds out that her powers are back, and she also learns that her friend is nursing a massive crush on Jang-yeol.

With Ye-boon’s powers working in full force again, Jang-yeol drags her to his next big break: a robbery at Assemblyman Cha Ju-man’s office. Ever the sycophant, he sidelines his teammates to grab all the glory for himself and uses his human dashcam to find the culprit. However, with no leads, he orders Ye-boon to indiscriminately touch every supporter’s butt, including those of the opposing party. With the help of Ok-hee’s crew, Ye-boon manages to find a clue, but she keeps this a secret from Jang-yeol since her grandpa may be the robber.

In the background, a more sinister plot brews as the story takes a moment to follow the streamer from the underclassman case. On her way to see her boyfriend, the streamer gets into an accident, and while she waits for a tow truck, a stranger wearing a poncho attacks her.

I know the streamer was a piece of work, but I feel bad for her. First, some creep kidnaps her and attempts to kill her, and now another creep may have actually killed her. At this point in the story, Sun-woo is the most likely suspect, but at the same time, he could be a red herring. I also wouldn’t be too surprised if Cha Ju-man turns out to be a villain (he’s definitely hiding something), but then again, we know so little at this point that everything on my end is pure speculation. However, it seems that the streamer recognized the assailant, and the show deliberately had her interact with a few key players meaning that the poncho creep is most likely someone the show already introduced.

It does add an air of mystery, but just like last week, these violent endings feel rather abrupt in both pacing and tone. I don’t think the show has quite found a balance between comedy and thriller as of yet, and for the most part, these two genres feel conflicting rather than harmonious. It also doesn’t help that I’m more invested in the comedy aspect of the show and find this new killer (and the underclassman kidnapper) a bit trite. There’s still plenty of episodes left, though, and hopefully, as the story progresses, this mash-up of genres will blend better.

Last week, I said the butt-touching wasn’t as off-putting as I feared, but alas, I wonder if I spoke too soon. The Ok-hee’s ex storyline went a bit too far for my liking — dragging a drunk person to a motel room to touch their butt is wrong on so many levels. It also didn’t help that the show backtracked on the message it made last week about how committing one crime does not permit others to sexually harass you. As soon as Ye-boon’s powers became useful to him, Jang-yeol was all about having his pervy partner touch as many butts as possible, and now I’m starting to question the show’s own understanding of sexual assault and consent. Part of my discomfort does stem from the toned-down absurdity from the show’s opening week (the ridiculousness does act as a nice counterbalance), so while this issue isn’t a deal-breaker for me yet, the show needs to either increase the antics or ease on the harassment — or possibly do both.

In spite of my misgivings, I still found the show generally favorable and creative in terms of its jokes. There are so many parodies and references in this show that I’m barely able to pick up on most of them. From the big moments like Jong-mok and Hyeon-ok’s “youthful” romance to small details like Ted Chang from Extreme Job, the creators seem to be having a blast poking fun at its characters and their situations. My favorite little Easter egg was the comment during the stream about Jong-muk looking like he would like bullet proof glass (a nod to his famous line from The Man from Nowhere), and it’s these tiny jokes sprinkled throughout the show that make me chuckle from their random silliness. I also love the banter between the characters, and the scene where Ye-boon tries to figure out Jang-yeol’s age had the perfect back-and-forth quibble. My favorite character, though, is Ok-hee by far, and the parting moment with her ex only solidified my love for her even more. She’s funny, reliable, and a bit unhinged, making her a winner in my book.

I’m allergic to any animal with fur. But most of all, I’m allergic to perverts.

Well, the show did calm down a bit and show a consistent inconsistency of tone. Odd-numbered episodes are wacky and zany so far, while even-numbered ones are chaotic evil ending with a violent cliffhanger. But, y’all, I think the joke’s gonna end up being on us. We may even be approaching “They Killed Kenny!!” levels of dark comedy with these. I really hope that’s not where we’re going with our live streamer. But it’s been twice now for her.

The character with the most inconsistent consistency is, of course, our ML. I actually quite adored how Jang-yeol turned coat immediately upon believing Ye-bun, wanting her to grab as many asses as she could, once he realized that it meant he could go back to Seoul. But, then again, when he grabs Ye-bun’s hands in the scene where she tells him that she's lost her power, she's all, "Don't TOUCH ME." Yeah, you tell him. Don’t touch her hands, man. They’re hers.

Funny things do abound. The bit about translating “countryside speak” to “Seoul speak” is, and, I assume, will continue to be, hilarious, as was the whole conversation without real nouns or verbs between the two men in the police station. But these two skits might also serve as analogies to the show writ large. One person talking, and while the intended recipient hears them, they’re not able to make sense of the words—without a translator. Who’s the translator for us? Who knows. Probably no one. But also, who cares? No one’s on our side. Is Sun-woo her secret brother? Is he a killer? I don't trust this show as far as I can throw a rat, and right now I can only imagine it's going to be even worse than we can all imagine. To think about this anymore would be to become the butt of the joke (again).

When the criminal gave himself away by singing along to the noraebang song, that was pretty silly. Sun-woo asking Ye-bun out on an "expired foods date" was also quite funny. "[These expired convenience store foods] cost more than I make in an hour," however, was deadly joke worthy of the politics of Oh YoonA, My Junho When Jang-yeol grabbed Ye-bun “by the window casing,” that was hilarious. And when he demands to know how much it costs for someone else to remove a window casing from another human, that was simply tear-inducing.

When this show gets absurd, I don’t mind being the patsy. When it gets violent and dark, though, I mind a great deal.

Thank you again, Seon-ha, for the heads-up before I clicked play on ep 4 out of morbid curiosity!!! Like you said, when it was absurd, I loved it. But when it got violent and dark, I said "nope" and dropped it. It's too bad, because I really liked its brand of humor!! A bit like Pegasus Market, but, you know, with butts. Please writers, send another weird, wacky comedy - minus the murders and etc.

Who's watching solely to find all of the Easter Eggs?
The obvious ones I found are the parody scenes from Twenty Five Twenty One. Not just the hilarious fencing scene and the water fountain scene, but also the reference to Da-Eum - the never revealed prior girlfriend of Baek Yi-Jin - who show's up as Da-Eum's brother in this show. Once again, we are denied a visual on Da-Eum.
I also noted a few references to My Liberation Notes and got a good chuckle when she said to "Worship Me"
@lovepark caught the reference to Extreme Job and The Man from Nowhere which totally went over my head.

The knife has a flower print on the blade similar to the weapon in Stranger.

And, while it is basically unlikely to be a direct reference, I couldn’t help but comparing the scene when Ye-bun was panting (due to sea squirt) out the open window of the bus with the similar looking scene from Bora, Deborah when she was in ugly tears.

I also want to leave this here for people reading through the comment section deciding on wether or not to watch the show that I do miss quite a few of the references to other shows but that doesn't diminish from the overall enjoyment, comedic aspect.
There are a very wide range of shows mentioned but the show doesn't rely on this solely for the humour, it still makes me laugh with all the zany antics.
If you manage to pick up on all the 'little easter eggs" it will enrich your viewing and make you appreciate how clever the writers are.

Thank you @lostpanda for asking. There were dialogues which I believe are references to other shows, but I could not recall. Can anyone help this girl out?

1. Hyeon-ok’s monologue: “But still keep on trudging along, step by step.”
2. The song sang by Ye-bun, to which the criminal sang along with.
3. Is the topdown car ride also a reference to Twenty Five Twenty One?

The name of the character is "Da-Eun's Brother." He doesn't get a real name and there is a reason for that.
My theory: almost Zero chance of meeting Da-Eun.
There have been multiple parodies of Twenty Five Twenty One so far and Da-Eun in from that world. If they stay true to 2521, Da-Eun will never be revealed.
However, this butt show is a parody so all bets are off. If they reveal Da-Eum, I'm sure it will be hilarious.

The butt swipe and zoom in was wacky.

I was a bit uncomfortable that the ML asked her to swipe butts in a crowd. I am watching this drama more like fantasy yet this scene was a bit off. Especially as a cop who didn’t approve of this initially.

I am hoping the other psychic gets to play a bigger role too. It’s lot easier to hold legs than touch butts.

I completely missed the ‘Man from Nowhere’ reference. Dang.

Exactly Blue (@mayhemf) , that's why I'm watching this show too.
All I want is to be diverted from life for an hour and watch something that makes me laugh out loud which this show does repeatedly.
It has been a joy to watch so far with the clever writing and comedic timing of the actors.
The leads are both doing a fabulous job here and I think Suho has been well cast as the dreamy crush.
One of the highlights of the show for me is watching the FL swoon over him, it has been hilarious and so well done.
Almost like many fans would behave if they had a crush on an idol.
I also found it uncomfortable to watch the mass crowd butt touching scene which didn't ring true to his character so far.
He has constantly been in her face about how it's not acceptable but then to turn and use it for his own gain felt off.
I did like that they showed how him using her powers repeatedly then had repercussions.

@lovepark identifies the major issue with this show,

First, though, I do have to identify a disagreement, which I mentioned last week. I just don't think the sexual harassment issue it at all concern--simply because, as I said, a woman sexually harrassing a man by touching his butt just NEVER happens in reality. So the circumstance is clearly absurd. There have been cases of women sexually harassing men in the workplace, but women just do not sexually harass men by touching their butt, So a general concern about sexual harassment is just not an issue, as far as I'm concerned.

Instead, for me the issue is the one both @lovepark and @attiton identify: the abrupt shift between zany humor and meta-kdrama jokes vs. the dark violence of the plot and the not just unfeeling but actually cruel behavior of the ML. I actually think this latter is a failure of the Lee Min-ki, but overall its failure of the writer and director. I'm going to keep watching, even though I'm not going to make any more butt jokes. Its an end of summer resolution.

Are you being facetious ? About the whole women-don’t-grab-men-by-the-butt thing ? Cause it’s something male celebrities in S. Korea complain of often, often …and it ain’t confined to celebrities or South Korea. I can think of so many real-life examples. Laws on sexual assault - touching someone in an intimate area without their permission - are not gender specific.
But your - it doesn’t actually happen - was just being facetious, yea ?

To think about this much longer would be feeding the trolls. Hmm. I may be…out?

Put it another way: Is this show asking us to seriously consider the line between appropriate behavior and sexual assault? Or is it just a funny drama about a ridiculously paranormal scenario that would never happen, and we should all just lighten up and laugh at the drama parodies?

Yeah, I think I’m out.

Required fields are marked *

You can think of so many real life examples of women grabbing random men’s butts in public? MANY?!? I am not talking about celebrities here, whose personal space gets invaded in multiple ways in public, but a woman groping multiple average men? I seriously would be totally stunned that there are many examples of this in Korea. If this was a different type of forum, I would ask you to send me examples of newspaper articles on this as a frequent problem--women roaming public spaces groping random men.

I can tell you If a woman was ever arrested for this in the U.S. it would get a great deal of sensationalistic newsplay, that’s for sure. Whereas a man groping multiple women occurs depressingly frequently and is not even a story, unless he is a doctor, teacher, or coach, and even that often gets swept under the rug, unless women speak out, which often they are understandably reluctant to do.

But, to talk about this issue in a more general way– I understand quite well why it might be concerning if a show made the sexual harassment of a man by a woman a source of laughs. (as opposed to reading minds through touching butts.) The principle that sexual harassment is sexual harassment regardless of gender is totally valid.

However, there is another perspective that I have as well, as a white male in the U.S. (I get that this is just a U.S. perspective, but I do think its a universal problem with men around the world right now.)

That is, if we were talking about a U.S. show, to make a big deal about this absurdist premise as sexual harassment is to play into the hands of men saying—“see—women do it too! Its not an issue where men should be targeted!” Its exactly the same for the U.S. as the issue of race, where white men say—"I suffer from racial discrimination as well! Let's not talk about racism in schools! It's racist!"

But pragmatically speaking,in the U.S. sexual harassment of men by women is a MINISCULE problem compared to the reverse, as is racism against whites. To say “lets talk about sexual harassment as if it wasn’t primarily men harassing women” or to say “lets all just be color blind when it comes to race” is to ignore the true nature of the problem, which is men sexually harassing women, and whites’ and white dominated organizations’ racist actions against people of color.

So for me, not only would I stand by my assertion that a woman going around grabbing random men’s private parts on busses and in public doesn’t happen, I also think the concern over the portrayal of this issue in this show is misspent, compared, to say, the violence and cruelty that Lee Min-ki’s character casually engages in against the FL which, (again from my U.S. perspective) is a real life problem for police.

Whether women do it or not, if in reality this were to happen it’s wrong. To me this show is a ‘fantasy’. No one in real life is ever going to have this power. So I don’t get warped around the legality of this. I don’t even think the show is making any point about sexual harassment. I enjoy it like reading a wacky fantasy novel and having fun with it.

Calling this show crazy would be an understatement, but whether it is the the mad stuff that the actors have to enact or the unhinged dialogues they have to utter, I am here for more of it. Truth is I do not even need to switch off my brain cells to enjoy this show because when I am left gasping for air from all the laughs, I certainly do not have the mind space to think and as much as I am in awe of the 100% dedication that this whole team has put behind to make this drama work, I also can't stop suspecting that this whole thing is a massive troll with a big "Why so serious?" sign hanging overhead. Go on show, go on like a kid's silly imaginary story.

I think I don't mind so much the butt touching because she doesn't do it for her own pleasure. She's the first one who would have prefered another part of the body to touch to see the memories. Now, she shouldn't try to see memories of people without any reason except her own curiosity (even if the SML is suspicious).

You know how you just have a line and/or delievry that just tickles you? "Why the butt?" was that for me. It just full captures how ridiculous and confusing the situation is and I just giggled alot over it.

Still don't know if he's younger or older but I thought that was kinda funny.

And then came the cringe of her having to touch all the butts. I *knew* there was no way it could be cute or endearing or quirky for long but I was surprised at just how much and how last I was just like 🙄😒. I think it had to do in part because he kinda berated her for not "practicing" once she learned of the ability; saying she needed to poke and kneaded. Like dude, you were JUST calling her a pervert and throwing her over your shoulder and now it's like all green flags to play drums on butts. I actually tuned out after he said that so I didn't understand why she had lost her ability briefly.

Seems like the convienence store guy is probably an undercover creep but I thought that can't possibly be true; it's too easy and predictable for him to have some nefarious plans. Plot twist is if it's the resident countryside police translator haha

Oh! I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about the streamer's repeated victimizing. Why was this a thing? And then they made her two faced and rude to what? Make her an asshole victim so you don't care all that much that she dies? Or maybe the production was trying to save money so they had the same character be a victim twice.

I feel really bad for the streamer too. She is annoying but its hard to be a girl living in this capitalistic world. I hope she somehow survive, but I dont know if she is important enough to be that lucky in this drama.

I felt gross about how they portrayed the streamer, as well. I also think it's REALLY fakey that someone who just survived a trauma like that would want to be left alone at night, in the dark. It would have made so much more sense to just cast two different characters.

After MY DEAREST left me emotionally drained, the two new episodes of BEHIND YOUR TOUCH were the perfect change to get my mind off things.

The first two episodes seemed rather confused in parts, as if the makers had somehow tried to fit in all the jokes they could think of. This week the plot was a bit more stringent.
I still can't laugh at every gag, but the number of jokes is high enough to keep me entertained. But was it just me and my nasty cold or was episode 4 less funny?

Up to now I haven't noticed any romantic dynamics between ML and FL. So far, the drama can't catch me up in that respect.

I too enjoyed Ep 3 a lot more than 4. But also I watched Ep 4 after Ep 6 of my dearest. I probably was too overwhelmed from MD and couldn’t laugh as much.
Or I am not interested in the cases which ep 4 was heavy on.
There was one moment when ML saw her as a person (when she offered food to the homeless man). May be working with her will make him less selfish and we will start seeing a romantic vibe. For now I would rather see her crushing on the 2ML.

Jang yeol will actually soften and see YeBun in a different light. The scene where Ye bun gave the homeless man a meal is the start. I think that as they work together to solve the cases, they will eventually know each other and fall for each other. But for now, I enjoy their bicketing so much lol

I'm 99% sure she's gonna crush on the 2ML while gradually falling for the ML. It's gonna be a slow burn and I am here for it. Again, though, I have this weird thing where I love unlikely romances--the less probable, the better.

I love the energy between the two characters - like they totally work as enemies who annoy the heck out of each other until their dying days or unlikely lovers.

I have not laughed this hard in a drama before. And this drama is top tier comedy. The humor works for me. After a long day's work, it is so nice to just watch, relax and laugh out loud. It is so unserious that I am not taking anything seriously, I am for the ride lol. The window sill scene, the john wick scene, singing MLN ost, and the English test. Eonnie calling hahaha. I am enjoying this drama so much. This drama comes from the tandem behind The Light in your eyes so I am not really worried. They know what they are doing lol. And the show's greatest revelation? Han ji min is also good in comedy and that is not an easy feat to do!

Absolutely! The show doesn’t take itself seriously and is unhinged with the jokes. And the humor is quite creative, no typical face-is-ugly jokes or toilet jokes.

Mixing in the classic k-drama plot device, the misguided assumption, Ye-bun teeters between truth and speculation as she slowly turns into the neighborhood amateur snoop. The results are awkward at best. However, she is acting more and more as a naive teen than a professional vet. I mean how many days in a row can you skip work while running a struggling clinic? The writer wants to continue the all-weird stories: Ok-Hui’s boyfriend’s girlfriend reveal; Hyeon-Ok’s throwing herself at Jong-Muk (we all know she is a bad news, spendthrift Succubus). The only growth shown is MacShaman who has toned down his scam behavior to re-connect with his family. But the central theme is "secrets" and I think Det. jang-Yeol, Sun-Woo and Ui-Hwan have major ones to reveal.

I do like how Han Ji Min is acting as a child-like, naive, no-boundaries character even though the character herself is off-base and annoying at times. I also like that her power’s features are evolving by logic and not writer’s whim. But I agree the human touching part is too much. When she lost it, I thought that would have been a good growth point for her to get back to treating animals (and humans) properly. But alas, that did not come to pass.

By the end of episode 2, Ye-bun is torn by secrets too close to home. However, we are also getting too repetitive story lines (the MeTuber, Jong-Muk’s failed love line, and Jan-Yeol sole quest to return to Seoul).

Yeah, the FL comes across as REALLY immature, especially when you consider that she's supposed to be 35 or 36 (I can't remember if she said '88 or '87)

There's something kinda delightful about the running gag of the token gentleman in Ok-hui's girl gang and how overly committed he is to Ok-hui despite just being a stand-in for his sister. Also, I love how he continuously calls Ok-hui "Unni" even though he's a dude and clearly older than her~

i mean, obviously if this were real, i think everyone would disapprove of the inappropriate groping and general douchebagery in this show.

but from a drama and fictitious pov, i love this.

it's hysterical and whacky and so so much fun. i love the naive and (a lil) stupid FL, but she's still likeable enough to follow her story. the ML is a horrible person but hilariously self serving.

the side characters are also all hilarious with their own gags. like the girl gang gang girls, the aunty who cant get over her ex, the cop crew, all the other drama references, etc etc.

the show is far from perfect but i'm honestly having a blast with it

Best line: "You okay, perv?" after Jang-yeol saves Ye-bun from being murdered.

I feel like this week was a little less wacky with all the murderyness, and I didn't like the extra time spent on the mean streamer, but I still love how wildly nuts everyone is and how the drama is just happy chilling in a world where such a weird superpower exists and where the heroine is really good at aiming for the butt and where those who have been touched don't feel the kneading in their behinds.

I was skeptical of how Ye-bun was able to escape her classmate's home through that tiny window, but then we got the most absurd explanation: the window frame was weak so she was able to rip it out and escape and have Jang-yeol saw it off. Jang-yeol just moved into a rooftop unit, but somehow a hacksaw is among his possession.

THIS is their world. And I'm happy to visit it 2 hours a week. I almost see it like an anime.

Also the references are the cherries on top. I really want to know what the writer truly thinks of 2521. Part of me thinks she had a love-hate relationship with it.
