Healer is an AWESOME action/thriller, I’m loving it and frantically stomping my feet when I have to wait for subs. (LOL) It’s got the right amount of action, mystery, comedy and romance to keep me interested but without taxing my brain too hard trying to figure out what’s happening. *glaresatPrideAndPredujice* And each week, the romance is taken up a notch, which is exciting. I’m a bit late for a recap of last week so I decided to just discuss how much I’m loving this drama, what’s going on so far and what I think.
We learned the second-in-charge at Double S Guard is a thug named Yo-Yo, who likes to fight using that Yo-Yo he carries around. Pffftttt, Healer took him down pretty quickly so my advice is to stop playing with toys or find a job at Mattel. When Healer whispered to Young-Shin during her anxiety attack, asking how many pills, I squealed out loud. Who knew those exact words would sound so smexy? (LOL) And when he pulled her against him, OH MY GOD, his hawtness burned through my screen!
Since the beginning, I’ve been hoping the reason Moon-Ho wasn’t telling Myung-Hee the truth about her daughter wasn’t something simple – like he just didn’t want to hurt her or something. But we found out it’s a little more complicated than that. He can’t even bring up Ji-An’s name without Myung-Hee being consumed by guilt and even having seizures. It’s frustrating that I still don’t know why she’s in a wheelchair but I’ll be patient. *bites lip* Okay…well, I’ll try.
I’ll admit that both Moon-Sik and Moon-Ho kinda creep me out but it’s obvious which one is the most evil. Are we being fooled? When Moon-Ho mentioned Ji-An’s grave being empty and asked if she was alive, I was shocked that Moon-Ho’s answer was: “She can’t be alive“. Moon-Ho asked the very questions I wanted to ask, if Ji-An is alive, does that mean Moon-Sik will try to kill her again? Did he purposely cause the accident 23 years ago that killed her Father, Gil-Han? He pretty much admitted he did!
Moon-Sik did have a point when he said Moon-Ho has known everything about his brother all these years but has done nothing – which makes him just as guilty. I’m hoping Moon-Ho has been gathering hard evidence all these years which will make it impossible for Moon-Sik to dig his way out. I don’t see any love or caring between these brothers at all but maybe that’s just me.
We learned one of the other men in the photo (besides Moon-Sik) is alive and has some type of relationship with our Healer, who calls him the “Master”. He works with Ahjumma, she turned off the cameras outside Healers lair so Master could snoop around. And both seem worried about what will happen when Healer finds out his Father was friends with Moon-Sik.
The relationship between Ahjumma and Healer got a bit more complicated last week, she knows more about his past that she’s letting on. I’ve loved the teasing banter between them since the beginning, like when she asked if Young-Shin is that pretty and sexy or the way she interrupts every time he tries to eat. To learn that she’s actually working with the Master was kind of disheartening – I don’t like that she’s keeping things from our Healer but I guess we’ll see where that goes. And she used to be a Police Detective? Interesting.
Speaking of Detectives, I don’t trust Detective Yoon at all and it doesn’t make any sense that he’s the one who interviewed Young-Shin regarding her attempted kidnapping or assault. Isn’t he head of the Cyber squad? What does that have to do with assault? (LOL) The only thing he did was fire questions at her, trying to get information out of her.
We also learned the world believes Healer’s Father murdered his best friend for money and then committed suicide and it sounded like both the Master and Ahjumma believe that too. I’m wondering if the friend Healers Father supposedly killed was Young-Shin’s Father? That would be a major roadblock to any romantic relationship between our OTP!
If this whole story involves Moon-Sik, I’m more inclined to believe he planted evidence to make it look like Healer’s Father murdered his friend for money and then murdered Healer’s Father, making it look like a suicide. Maybe Healer’s Father found out something he wasn’t supposed to. I feel sorry for him, how sickening to find out Moon-Sik, who he thought was his friend, was insanely jealous and lusting so badly for his wife that he wanted him out of the picture. *shivers* Creepy.
This is all speculation on my part since I don’t yet have enough information regarding what happened to Healer (or Young-Shin’s) Father or the events surrounding the 1992 accident. I’m completely guessing it involved Moon-Sik’s jealous obsession with Myung-Hee. But I kinda want Myung-Hee out of that house (like, desperately) and I’m dreading her finding out Moon-Sik had anything to do with her first husband’s death or her daughter’s disappearance.
I knew about Moon-Ho’s past relationship with Min-Jae but honestly, I still don’t like her. She’s clinging, trying to make him feel bad for not returning her feelings. AGAIN, with the “I love you so you must love me back” crappola that shows up in so many dramas. I didn’t like the way she put Moon-Ho down, calling him a fame-whore and constantly belittling his work and I don’t like her even more now that she’s whining about not being his “first woman”. I applauded her breaking up with him but she needs to let go.
I asked a male friend of mine how he would feel if an ex-girlfriend approached his brother, asking questions about his first love and who she was. He said he would think she’s bat-shit cray-cray and would stay very far away. LMAO! He’s right but that kind of stuff always seems to happen in K-dramas.
Healer’s confession to himself about why he likes Young-Shin was cute but even cuter was Young-Shin telling him she feels “Bong-Soo” (his fake persona) is like a sister. LMAO at the look on his face! I loved his little smile when he learned she no longer has a crush on Reporter Moon-Ho but instead, her new crush is the mystery-man known as the Healer.
Did I mention the humor? If you haven’t started watching this one yet, you should.
