So many highlights right! The other one for me is when Kim Moo Jin came through with the truth tea

These three plus Jung Mi Sook are the key to clearing DHS's name. These three were the ones who saw the true colours of both Do Min Seok and Do Hyun Soo and didnt say or do anything about it until it was too late. I am happy writernim gave KMJ the part that would make the parents snap out of it, realize their son is a lost cause and do the right thing by cooperating with the police.

I guess one thing this drama portrays, at least for me, is the question, is evil a product of your environment?.... or is it actually innate? And don't you ever try to mess with the good ones, because, who knows, they might end up even worse than one might think. 

 

Its a never ending debate. Someone asked, I cant remember who in the previous pages. Was Baek Hee Sung born a psycho? We can also ask does Do Hyun Soo have ASPD? Despite him having great personality traits which have allowed him to function well for 14 years and not doing something drastic like murder. He does have a very dark side. It that flairs up when Jiwon and Eun Ha are at risk. He tortured and almost killed Kim Moo Jin and Baek Hee Sung because of them. He was cornered twice by his wife(ep 7 and 13). His impulse almost made him hurt her not only once but twice.

 

is evil a product of your environment or is it actually innate? Studies say brain activity of dozens of people thought to be psychopaths, found that there tended to be reduced activity in the areas that play roles in regulating emotions, impulses, morality, and aggression. So maybe it could be said to be innate like in BHS's case? He threw a rock and killed a dog just like that. Some kids hurt animals even when they are raised in good environment. Bully other kids. That could be innate evil. But then again, am leaning towards evil being a product of your environment. BHS was raised by narcissist parents. Gong Mi Ja pushed her son to get better grades in school. The image of having a brainy math genius son was more important to her than anything. The Grandpa Baek is verbally and physically abusive. This guy slaps his wife, slaps his adult son who just came out of a coma. I dont think he had an emotional bond with BHS because he is so focused on his medical career. Maybe thats why he readily accepted to be groomed by Do Min Seok. He got the attention and approval that his father didnt give him. DHS's "evil" streak was definitely a product of his environment. He was failed by pretty much everyone from childhood. His parents, his doctor, society, media. He was not born evil.

Man, what can I say, this drama just doesn't disappoint. I just love everything about it. One of the highlights for me would probably be Jung Mi Sook trying to prevent Hyun Su from doing something he'll regret.

 

That part stuck out for me, too, when I watched it. I thought it was really brave of her to choose try to save DHS instead of having him go after BHS, who put her through all sorts of torture. And even when she was on the phone with the police, she asked for them to save DHS rather than immediately ask them to go arrest BHS. She was worried about him and perhaps a part of it may have also been with her wanting to break the cycle or maybe, because she already saw that DHS was a good person, she just wanted to save him from being a murderer as best she could.

I have to disagree with this. I don't think he had any impulse to hurt her in either case. In ep 7, he had a panic attack that caused him to reach to her for help. His pain and inability to breathe caused him to look threatening, which was great for the suspense, but I don't think he had even a second of wanting to hurt her. She realized that she was misinterpreting his action as soon as he collapsed to the floor.

 

In ep 13, his first thought when she was talking to the police was to stage the scene to make sure she didn't look like an accomplice. Even when he was angry with her for her distrust, he had no impulse to hurt her and was only concerned about protecting her.

The banner says: The 6 months with Hyun Soo was the most beautiful flower

 

Translation of Lee Joon Gi's post:

My lovely staff and family that has securely protected my side for 7 months without any hard thoughts, you've worked extremely hard. They very secretly and carefully decorated this during the last filming and my tears fell at this kind of sincerity. Ah, so I'm living well. So there are always good people by my side. So while I thank you once again, I should live as an even better person ^ ^ My fans who continually supported me until the last shooting shouting "Our actor is very good," I sincerely thank you Because you're all here, there's no other choice but to be happy ㅜㅜ You give me strength. Also, the director and all of the staff, I sincerely thank you all very much. Please be with us until the end next week, I love you 

 

I can't make out what it says on the very bottom of what they gave him, but the upper part says: Hyun Soo has no sins, just the sin of being handsome. You've worked hard Hyun Soo

 

Kim Ji Hoon did like his post, I think he's been liking every single one of the pictures/videos that Lee Joon Gi's been posting

FOE Poll 6: Tying up the loose ends

 

With the finale coming up on Wednesday, I thought it would be nice to take a walk down the memory lane to see how we fared in our poll predictions:

 

In our first poll in July (before the drama started) the majority believed the following:

  • Baek Hee Sung (aka Do Hyun Su) is a psychopathic (serial) killer  FALSE
  • Baek Hee Sung (DHS) loves his wife TRUE
  • Most hoped for a happy drama ending UNKNOWN

In the second poll mid-August the majority voted for the following:

  • Do Min Seok's accomplice was unidentified TRUE
  • Do Hyun Su had not killed anyone TRUE
  • We will get a happy ending UNKNOWN

In the third poll (end of August) we believed that:

  • The real Baek Hee Sung is the accomplice TRUE
  • We wanted to know more about Cha Ji Won's past FALSE
  • Kim Moo Jin and Do Hae Su would rekindle their romance UNKNOWN

In the fourth poll (early September) we voted for:

  • The real Baek Hee Sung being Do Min Seok's killer (in a close second place was his father - only with a 2 vote difference)  TRUE
  • Cha Ji Won's past is clean  TRUE
  • Baek Hee Sung was in a coma because his mother found out about his murders, freaked out and either by mistake or deliberately harmed him TRUE

In the fifth poll last week we answered that:

  • Do Min Seok is a serial killer TRUE
  • Baek Hee Sung and Baek Hee Sung's mom will die FALSE
  • Baek Hee Sung's mom will turn on her son and help Do Hyun Su PARTIALLY TRUE

Well done! We were for the most part correct in our predictions! :kiss_wink:

To tie up the loose ends, let's answer in the last poll the questions that remain unanswered:

 

1. Will we get a happy or a sad drama ending?

2. If Do Hae Su survives, will she rekindle her romance with Kim Moo Jin?

3. BONUS: Kim Ji Hoon plays a hot serial killer

You have time to vote until the finale airs this Wednesday. :kiss_wink:

I was first to vote. :D

 

I voted for the happy ending for both couples. I am aware that it is a little unrealistic on my part concidering the genre.  :DAnd no, I don`t find Baek Hee Sung a sexy killer. He is creepy. But the actor Kim Ji Hoon is handsome/ sexy.

LMAO The third question is so unfair because Kim Ji Hoon IS really hot as Baek Hee Sung but he is also giving me major creeps.

 

Tough choice then.... :joy: Do you value hotness or creepiness more?

I've seen many discussions about Baek Hee Sung being considered hot, so thought it would be fun to include it as a question.

In the end I voted for Baek Hee Sung being a creep because I wouldn't want to date him. :spitswater: Hotness doesn't hide the fact he is a crazy serial killer. Plus I just need to remember that blond wig and I'm out. :P

 

I also voted for Kim Moo Jin and Hae Soo part ways. I don't know I think they're carrying too much past emotional baggage with them. But I voted for a happy ending for Do Hyun Soo and Cha Ji Won.

I Hope Please GIF

Truly a difficult question. The actor is handsome (first time seeing him) but whenever he appears on my screen he gives me creeps. I chose hot after remembering his squats on bts :lol:

Didn't think twice before going for the second option. He gave me creeps and every time I saw him, I would feel like attacking him just like this.

or something like this, given the fact BHS even had long hair

Went with good ending for Cha Ji Won and Do Hyun Su, because after all this, they both deserve it, especially DHS, dude deserves to have a peaceful life after suffering all those years and hiding his true identity. 

 

Went for Hae Su and Moo Jin being together again, because well I feel like it won't be happening, or we'll just get a hint for it, but even Hae Su deserves to have a peaceful life after suffering so much and Moo Jin sort of deserves a second chance. Him leaving her because of all he experienced down in basement cannot be justified but can be understood given him being too afraid in that age. Even adults would be terrified in that situation. But I want to see them being together finally. If Hyun Su is getting a happy ending, I want to see Hae Su too getting similar ending and finally having someone to lean on.

Let me help you out in your decision making:

 

How about the pot calling the kettle black? The lack of self-awareness of this dude. He had the nerve to call DHS, a psychopath:D :

@violina

Oh I'm not conflicted about it in regards of "do I find him hot enough to forget he is a serial killer". Because the answer is NO! I would never put hotness above that. I'm just like WHY is Kim Ji Hoon making Baek Hee Sung pull back his hair in such a creepy yet hot way?

stop no GIF (this one is for you @Sleepy Owl :lol: )

And then I remember Ted Bundy was known for being attractive to women and that's how he lured them into his car. The drama basically tells us... don't fall for ex-comatose men who look handsome.
