DRAMA CLUB RECAP: Healer Episode 8
Welcome to episode 8, Healers!!! On this episode, a trip down Healer’s memory, a spy enters the game, warnings are given, Hyung sees ghosts, Young Shin is tricked, and Healer is there for the rescue. Come join Amy, Pamela, and I as we talk about the ins and outs of episode 8.
Healer’s identity: Caught or Save?
Tiara: I’m not completely sure his identity is caught. Granted, Moon Shik is
Amy: I’m not sure what to think. I’m actually wondering if Myung
Pamela: It really is difficult to say
To trust or not to trust Sunbae
Tiara: As I’ve said before, I trust Moon Ho to want to help Young Shin become a great reporter. He believes he has a debt to pay back to her and helping her achieve her dream might help relieve him of this debt.. However, I don’t believe this is his only intentions. He knows the evil
Amy: I seriously have no clue what Moon Ho will do with that video. I think he wants to put the whole story together before he reveals anything
Pamela: Moon Ho has a reputation as a reporter who reveals the story, no matter how deep in trouble it gets him. I believe that he will, as long as he believes Young Shin will stay safe when the evidence is publicized. His brother could be a part of the mix, too, but currently, I think Young Shin’s safety is a priority for him.
Young Shin’s embarrassment to her one-sided crush and Moon Ho’s warning to Healer
Tiara: Poor Young Shin for feeling like she’s been rejected twice. Her relationship with Moon Ho is awkward. She wanted to be just like him. Sadly for Moon Ho, he kind of broke the illusion of her crush when he asked to take over her story. She thinks he sees her as just a junior to his Sunbae. How heart broken Young Shin felt finding out Healer was only protecting her because he was paid money. Of course, we know
There’s so much emotion in just that one look he gives to Young Shin. It’s very telling.
As for Moon Ho’s warning,
Amy: I loved this scene!
Pamela: That “personal contact” moment
Moon Shik’s Kryptonite
Tiara: Wow, what a bastard. Sure,
Amy: I do not feel sympathy for Moon Shik at this point. Seriously a bastard. What kind of man
Pamela: So I wasn’t the only one who wanted to punch him through my computer screen? Coolness
Order of Death of the Daughter
Tiara: One of the reasons I enjoy the drama is being able to add some action into the mix. Keeps the drama on its toes and interesting. I have to admit, I knew Young Shin was going to be saved, but I was biting my nails the whole time. Who knew being a night courier was such a tough job?
Amy: I do love the action that they throw in and I was biting my nails despite knowing she’d be rescued too. The action and suspense keep things interesting and hold my attention. I’m impressed Healer knew how to rescue someone from an elevator. Apparently that is part of his training?
Pamela: Personally, I wasn’t sure who would actually get
A birthday Kiss
Tiara: Ahhhhhhhhhhhh and eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! What a great moment for out OTP. Oh Young Shin
Amy: Eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I was shaking my daughter’s leg, clapping, and smiling like an idiot during this scene. My kids should know better than to sit next to me when I watch dramas. I get way too excited, especially when
Pamela: My little sister was playing one of my video games beside me, and I turned to her just before he went in for the kiss and said, “Prepare to hear me scream.” And scream I did. I also lamented, both on MyDramaList and on KaKaoTalk how I hate Ji Chang Wook for having the ability to make me so intensely happy so suddenly. The build up to the kiss - the emotions, the misunderstandings - made the kiss all the more satisfying. I have been waiting for this moment, and I will bang my head on the desk forevermore when I reminisce about it. The complexities
Tiara: The writing is just magnificent. The drama is weaving the mystery of the older generation in bit by bit in a compelling way. It’s normally hard to be able to maintain the tension and obscurity. However, this drama has been able to keep things cryptic and interesting
Amy: The drama really is getting better with episode and I do not appreciate the fact that I have to wait for new episodes. This is a drama I would gladly marathon with no sleep because everything about it is so awesome from the writing to the acting to the suspense. I can’t get enough.
Pamela: I agree with both of you. The pacing of the drama, the clever hints at the past, and the characters’ characters that have yet to be revealed - the writers have set up the drama well this first month. The cast is something I adore, and the OTP is something I didn’t know I needed. (I knew I needed more Ji Chang Wook, but this is just too much for my teenage heart to handle.) We are coming up on the dreaded middle episodes of the drama, but I have faith that the staff of Healer can keep us on the edges of our seats.
Tiara: Well Healer Fans, what are your thoughts? Did Hyung figure out who Healer might be? What is Moon Ho’s plan for his Hyung’s plan? Is Moon Shik going to go crazy being visited by his dead friends? Will Moon Ho tell Young Shin the truth about why he took her DNA? What is the Elder’s end game? Do you think Healer will tell Young Shin is true identity? Tell us in the comments. Unit next time, watch more dramas.
