EPISODES 9-ten WEECAP
This week we get to concentrate extra on Jae-hoon than Yeo-reum as on the net rumors commence spinning out of manage about his supposed malpractice. When the scandal is picked up by frequent news sources, Chae-ri desires to get to the bottom of it “because it is a matter of morals and ethics” — and not 1 particular person side-eyes her when she says this. Yeo-reum attests the rumors are baseless, but Jae-hoon says he is to blame — he did kill somebody.
We know Jae-hoon properly sufficient to know this is not how it sounds. And, of course, there’s a quite uncomplicated (but awful) story behind it. Back in 2019, Jae-hoon was head of neurosurgery at a hospital, placing him in the position to make life or death calls in the emergency division. When two sufferers come in — 1 burned beyond belief — and there is only space for 1 in the operating area, Jae-hoon decides to send in the patient with a greater likelihood of survival.
The operation is effective and Jae-hoon saves the young patient, though the burn victim dies without the need of therapy. When Jae-hoon comes out of surgery, he learns the unrecognizable victim is his father. (And that clears up why he can not make himself go back to practicing neurosurgery.)
He’s wracked with guilt not only mainly because he did not save his father’s life, but mainly because he knows that if he had recognized his father he may perhaps have created a various choice, possibly losing each patients’ lives. On prime of this, he quits his profession and goes into a deep depression — under no circumstances telling anybody about him what occurred (not even Yeo-reum).
Whoa, that is a lot to take in. Jae-hoon has been harboring this deep sense of guilt though letting his good friends assume he was just depressed about his father’s death — without the need of figuring out his involvement. For greater or worse, following the news stories raise, Chae-ri enables the complete Television-watching nation to find out about his involvement.
It occurs when the young guy he saved on the operating table comes searching for Jae-hoon at Yeo-reum’s workplace. He tells Yeo-reum the complete story and says he desires a likelihood to speak to Jae-hoon to thank him. Jae-hoon is not there. He’s gone out to the beach lodge that he makes use of as a secure space. It is the 1 he took Yeo-reum to when she referred to as off her wedding — which is how she knows specifically exactly where to obtain him.
Alternatively of going alone, Chae-ri convinces Yeo-reum to take the complete production crew out there to film Jae-hoon’s encounter with the saved patient. When Chae-ri is pushy about obtaining the raw footage, saying she knows very best how to clear up Jae-hoon’s media mess, Yeo-reum does not place up a lot of a fight against it.
The crew shows up and sends Ji-yeon to speak to Jae-hoon on the beach. He turns and sees the group, which includes Yeo-reum, who’s standing back, practically hiding behind a tree. (Are they attempting to make me hate her appropriate now?) Jae-hoon walks more than and is face-to-face with the patient he saved, as cameras swarm about them. Rather than thank him, the patient apologizes. He’s been feeling guilty this complete time figuring out that by saving his life, Jae-hoon ruined his personal life, as properly as his father’s. “Who am I to be saved?” the kid asks. He then pulls out his acceptance to healthcare college, saying he desires to be a medical doctor like Jae-hoon — a neurologist.
Everyone is a teary mess — Jae-hoon, the newly admitted med student, the crew (and me). Jae-hoon says he did properly and they hug. Chae-ri is there, figuring out she was appropriate and capturing each emotional bit of it. When it airs, the nation is on Jae-hoon’s side and ratings spike. Not only is Chae-ri content to prove that there was no malpractice, but she sues the rumor starter (a hospital worker that didn’t like Jae-hoon) for defamation against her reality show. (What?! Appear who’s speaking, lady!)
Jae-hoon’s backstory is the thread by way of most of these episodes but at the exact same time, dynamics are establishing involving characters that I did not count on — and I’m loving each minute of it. For 1, Jae-hoon and Chef John — who commence out arguing about “very serious” issues like strawberry jam — finish up seeming sort of friendly following Jae-hoon’s previous comes to light. In either mode, they’re a funny pair.
Also, Chef John and Ji-wan have an extremely watchable moment or two. When she eats the meal he created for somebody else, she loves it and compliments him, understanding the components and describing it in her writerly words. (There is no way they are setting these two up but I appreciate that the show is playing with the notion.)
But the most entertaining of all is Chae-ri’s developing “craving” for Jae-hoon. Jo Soo-hyang says every thing with her eyes and the minute the possibility was place in front of me, I was all for it (#fire). Chae-ri can inform Yeo-reum has feelings for Jae-hoon, so she provides Yeo-reum a heads up that she’s pondering of sleeping with him — just after, mainly because following that she’ll almost certainly shed interest (lol). I know it will not come about (and Jae-hoon has sufficient complications currently) but beneath other situations these two could be great collectively.
All the side interactions are higher entertaining, producing it all the extra noticeable how not entertaining the dynamic is involving Jae-hoon and Yeo-reum. Yeo-reum is super job-focused appropriate now, to the detriment of her friendships. And Jae-hoon definitely must have provided Yeo-reum some space following she told him she just requires a pal appropriate now. Neither are performing a terrific job becoming there for each and every other and the tension is sufficient to hit you in the gut.
When Yeo-reum 1st informs Jae-hoon about the on the net rumors about him, his 1st reaction is to ask if she’ll use them as aspect of the reality show. I imply, ouch. But also, it is not undeserved. From Jae-hoon’s viewpoint every thing is uncomplicated for Yeo-reum — he feels like a pushover to her. She keeps acting as if practically nothing occurred involving them, but he’s also impacted to be in a position to do that.
From Yeo-reum’s viewpoint, she can not get something in her life appropriate. She desires to be effective but has a mediocre profession. She desires to be a excellent pal but does not know how her good friends are feeling. And with appreciate, she says, “Every heart I lay my hand on crumbles away like a pile of ash.” Rather than becoming uncomplicated, Jae-hoon is the most tricky aspect of all.
The challenge, of course, is that neither of them can say these issues out loud. Alternatively, they have imaginary conversations with each and every other — which is a excellent device for us to know their thoughts and wishes, but not so excellent for solving their complications.
In the final scene, Yeo-reum is left alone at evening to gather some cameras from a haunted home shoot and it starts to flood outdoors. When she comes out, she can not cross the flood. She sees Jae-hoon on the other side of the water, then wading towards her, and ultimately lifting her up and carrying her across. We’re left to wonder if this is a different imaginary scene or if he’s definitely there.
I’m inclined to think this scene is true. But, if it is her imagination displaying us what she desires from him, then what is holding her back from just obtaining with him? We know she’s feeling like a failure in all elements of her life. Is this a type of noble idiocy playing out? Is she afraid she’ll fail with him also so she just desires to leave issues how they are? It is also late for that provided that he — following that swoony confession — went ahead and pressed her when she stated she just required a pal appropriate now. No matter how a lot denial she’s in about how her actions have an effect on him, there’s no way issues can go back to how they have been just before.
