Recap: Queen In-Hyun’s Man Episode 8

Dong-Min glares at the intimate-looking Hee-Jin and Boong-Do at the restaurant.

After lunch, Dong-Min returns to the set frustrated, where Na-Jeong is preparing to film. She asks if the lunch went well. Dong-Min tells her to buy him a drink after the shoot. She can’t believe his audacity.

The director asks if everything went well. Dong-Min replies in the positive. He adds, “I have an idea. Why don’t kill off Queen In-Hyun? It will totally become a hot topic.” The director can’t believe what he is hearing. Na-Jeong explains, “I am not the one that suggested this, Director.” Dong-Min affirms, “It is MY idea.”

Director: Why do we kill Queen In-Hyun?
Dong-Min: Because. She’s annoying. A total eyesore.
Director: If you kill Queen In-Hyun because you are tired of her, that doesn’t make you a king. It makes you a psycho.

Dong-Min replies that is better for a King to stop switching back and forth between wives, and just live with his new one.

Hee-Jin also returns to the set and the director thanks her for working things out. Hee-Jin is trying to call Soo-Kyung when a staff member approaches her and hands a new synopsis. The actor who is playing Jang Hee-Jae (Jang Hee-Bin’s brother) has been hospitalized and the writer changed the drama a bit to accommodate the month-long hospitalization.

Hee-Jin reads the new synopsis and is a bit disturbed by how much her role has changed. She approaches the director and asks, “What happened to the Hahm-Yi-Wan affair?” Hee-Jin is referring to what originally happened in history. This was mentioned in Episode 7 as Minister’s Min’s plan to get rid of Queen In-Hyun’s supporters, such as Hahm Yi-Wan. Remember Boong-Do surprised Min by already knowing about this. It seems that Boong-Do has changed history by executing his plan last episode.

The director asks, “Who is Hahm Yi-Wan?” Didn’t one of Minister Min’s own men turn on him?” When Hee-Jin insists that she is correct but another staff member confirms the director. Hee-Jin realizes that Boong-Do must have changed history. Later on she looks it up on the internet and reads what happened that night when Boong-Do went back to Joseon time. As she is reading, another actor compliments her on her studiousness, although, he says, actors don’t bother doing that when they are no longer newbies.

Soo-Kyung calls back Hee-Jin and Hee-Jin demands to know what the two are doing. Soo-Kyung tells Hee-Jin to just concentrate on her acting. Hee-Jin demands Soo-Kyung put Boong-Do on the phone since Soo-Kyung is her employee.

Hee-Jin tells Boong-Do to leave Soo-Kyung but he replies that it’s okay; he needs her. Hee-Jin asks, “For what?” but Boong-Do only says that it’s a secret. He will meet her later.

Before Boong-Do hangs up, Hee-Jin tells him that the history has changed. Boong-Do affirms that he was the one to change it.

Boong-Do: Of course every person wants to save their own life, but I was worried that I might change the fate of others. So I tried my best to change my own fate without destroying other people’s. I was relieved to see that in the Annals, things turned out all right.

Boong-Do quotes a Confucian saying, “Human beings may plan, but it is up to the Heavens whether everything turns out the way they are supposed to.” When Hee-Jin is silent on the other side, Boong-Do asks if she didn’t understand. Hee-Jin bristles, “Are you making fun of me? You don’t even understand curse words.” Boong-Do assures her that he never laughed at her- she must have an inferiority complex.

Hee-Jin informs Boong-Do that no one knows that the history has changed, only her. Boong-Do affirms this but doesn’t know why she is the only one who knows.

Soo-Kyung continues to question Boong-Do. She asks why he doesn’t have a cellphone. He replies that he doesn’t need one because he doesn’t have anyone to call except Hee-Jin. He doesn’t stay “home” very much. When Soo-Kyung tries to get more details, Boong-Do changes the topic and asks her a question, “What does Hee-Jin need the most right now?”

Soo-Kyung asks why he asks, to which Boong-Do answers, “Because I want to give her something.” Soo-Kyung lets him know that Hee-Jin has no pride and that him even being there at the restaurant was enough for her. Boong-Do replies, “It’s not because she has no pride but because she has good heart. Please help me give the right gift.”

Soo-Kyung tells Boong-Do that she first needs to know the price range, but Boong-Do wants to know what Hee-Jin NEEDS. Soo-Kyung tells him that what Hee-Jin needs is out of his range but Boong-Do assures that that he can take care of it. Soo-Kyung snorts and doesn’t believe a student like Boong-Do can afford what Hee-Jin really needs. Boong-Do takes out a small stack of thousand dollar bills and then a bigger stack. Soo-Kyung is speechless.

Boong-Do asks Soo-Kyung exactly what “oh-geul” means and how he can make Hee-Jin “oh-geul.” “Is my question weird?” Boong-Do asks. Soo-Kyung just nods. She can’t believe this guy. Neither can I. Teeheehee!

Back in Joseon time, Minister Min is being led to his exile through the city. Ja-Soo appears next to him and Minister Min orders Ja-Soo to find out everything about Boong-Do. He is the one that created the trap and then disappeared like the smoke from his room. He wants to know how Boong-Do did that. Boong-Do cannot live while he dies.

Back in modern time, Hee-Jin is filming at night. She is looking around for Soo-Kyung when she sees her manager making weird hand-motions to her. Hee-Jin can’t understand and runs over to her. Soo-Kyung tells her that she was going crazy in frustration from hanging out with Boong-Do. Soo-Kyung doesn’t know if Boong-Do is a good thing or a bad thing for Hee-Jin. She also informs Hee-Jin that Boong-Do is waiting for her. Hee-Jin is delighted and quickly rushes away outside.

Boong-Do is sitting in a car and when he sees Hee-Jin, he lets out a huge breath. Epic background music starts and Boong-Do puts on a serious face as he holds up a car key.

“One, put the car key in (and start car). Two, push (the un-park button). Three, change (gears). Four, press (on accelerator).”

Boong-Do drives toward Hee-Jin with speed and as he gets closer, he repeats out loud with a little bit of panic, “Five, stop (car).” Oy vey. I feel bad for Soo-Kyung who had to teach him all this step by step.

“Six, (open) the window.” Boong-Do leans his head out of the car window and smiles as Hee-Jin.

Hee-Jin rushes over in surprise. Boong-Do calmly continues, “Seven, change (gears). Eight, press (park). Nine, take out (car key).”

Boong-Do leaves the car as Hee-Jin frets. “Where did you get the car? You can’t even drive.”

Boong-Do merely continues, “Ten, give,” as he hands over the car keys to Hee-Jin. “Please take this. This is for saving my life. Soo-Kyung told me that you always wanted this car. She also told me you sold your old car a few months ago due to a tight budget.” Boong-Do looks at the car as he says, “This is easier than riding a horse. Do you want to try riding the car?”

Hee-Jin looks at Boong-Do with surprise and happiness. “Why do you keep on doing this, like in mangas.”

Boong-Do replies that Soo-Kyung told him this would make Hee-Jin “oh-geul” the most. Hee-Jin says, “I’m not just “oh-geul”-ing but also having cold sweats.”

Hee-Jin smiles in happiness until she realizes that Boong-Do must have stolen the car. He assures that he bought it with his own money by selling his father’s heirloom (sword). Hee-Jin can’t believe that he sold an heirloom to give her a car.

When Hee-Jin looks hesitant, Boong-Do comments that the person he knows is not the type to hesitate in receiving a present. Hee-Jin bristles when Boong-Do calls her thick-skinned and shameless. It’s her charm, he reassures.
Boong-Do informs Hee-Jin that his father would have given her something bigger than this, since if Boong-Do had died, the family line would have ended. He wants her to know that his grateful heart is bigger than this present.

Hee-Jin struggles to get into the car and Boong-Do helps her with her hanbok. He informs that the Queen In-Hyun never loses her poise and dignity to which Hee-Jin retorts that is it because she is in a hurry. Hee-Jin proceeds to give the car a test-drive as she circles around and around Boong-Do.

Hee-Jin stops, no longer feeling simply happy. When Boong-Do leans into the car window to ask if she likes it, Hee-Jin starts to accuse him. “You’re a con-artist, right? You knew I was a celebrity and approached me on purpose. The whole time-traveling thing is a lie. You just wanted to play around with me a little but after I revealed that you were my boyfriend, you figured you’d just buy me car and leave, right?! There is no such thing as a time machine in this world.”

Boong-Do replies calmly, “What if this is all a lie. You look like you might even run to the police.” Ruffled, Hee-Jin declares, “Of course! And when you come out after serving your punishment….” Hee-Jin drifts off, “I will ask you to really go out with me.”

Hee-Jin: I wish you were a con artist. Think about it. I have finally met someone who makes my heart beat faster. I connect with that person even without words. Isn’t it better that the person is a con artist of this world, not a possible ghost from the past.

Boong-Do smiles and tells her that she is right about him lying. Hee-Jin just whispers, “That’s a lie.” “Get in,” she demands. When Boong-Do gets in, Hee-Jin tells him that there are other things that cars are used for. She rolls up the windows and leans over to kiss him.

“See,” Hee-Jin says after the kiss, “this is what cars are normally used for when they are stopped. Memorize that.” Hee-Jin tries to leave the car in embarrassment when Boong-Do pulls her over and kisses her.

They stop kissing when they hear a drama staff member call for Hee-Jin. Hee-Jin pulls away and says shyly, “See, people can’t see from outside.” Boong-Do replies, “Yes, I was just thinking that it was a good idea to buy this car.” Puhahahaha!

Hee-Jin asks what Boong-Do will do from now on. Boong-Do will go back to Jeju and wait for the King’s orders. He will then return to the capital and restart his normal life. Hee-Jin snaps, “Back to your normal life? That means you are going to get married. You said you didn’t have a wife and during that time, isn’t it the most important thing to continue the family line? You’re going to get a young wife…”

Boong-Do cuts her off, “Let’s meet in a month. It’s going to take me about a month to settle everything and return to the capital. I’ll come see you then.”

Hee-Jin is surprised, “You don’t have any reason to come back here.” Boong-Do reminds her that he is her boyfriend. He promised to be a good boyfriend.

Boong-Do: Do you remember what you asked last time? What is the cause of our meeting? I’ve thought about it hard but have yet to find the answer. Until I find the answer, I will come see you. That is, if you are okay with it. If I haven’t misunderstood the “good-bye” ritual that you do with anyone and anywhere.

What a teaser!

Back at Hee-Jin’s place, Soo-Kyung wants to know who Boong-Do is. He never rode a plane, he has no ID, he doesn’t have a cellphone, and he doesn’t know the price of car but still has thousands of dollars in his pocket. Hee-Jin reminds Soo-Kyung that she told her before that Boong-Do is from the past. Soo-Kyung can only cry in frustration.

Hee-Jin meets the apartment security guard outside on her way to buy food. He asks after her and learns that the adult story of the drama will appear next week. He thinks that Hee-Jin should move away from a neighborhood like this and suggests that she sell her car to do so. Hee-Jin tells him that the car has another owner that can’t come often so she is just taking care of it for a while.

In a flashback we learn that Hee-Jin and Boong-Do agreed to meet one month later at the exact same place and go on a date all day long. Of course, Boong-Do does not know what a date is. Hee-Jin tells him that she will teach him what a “date” is that day.

Boong-Do is back in Jeju Island in modern time. He heads off to find his place of exile during Joseon time. He changes into his normal clothes and travels back.

Immediately, though, an air flies toward his head. In the ensuing fight, the talisman is cut in half and Boong-Do staggers back, holding his head. He is then injured by a knife on his shoulder.

We have flashback scenes of Boong-Do’s first time travel before Boong-Do wakes up, injured, with Han-Dong nursing him. In the morning, Boong-Do wakes up fully and hears the Jeju official outside worrying over him. We learn that Boong-Do had been unconscious for over ten days. When the government official starts talking about everything that has happened, Boong-Do doesn’t know what everyone is talking about. He can’t remember how and why he is in Jeju. He doesn’t not remember anything of his exile or his reinstatement.

Boong-Do reads the King’s reinstatement orders in confusion. Han-Dong rushes over to Boong-Do and frets over him. Boong-Do does not know why Han-Dong is here. Han-Dong came to escort Boong-Do back to the capital. Boong-Do was found lying with a wound after Minister Min’s assassins tried to kill him.

One of Minister Min’s men who was after Boong-Do is reporting to Ja-Soo. The assassin tells Ja-Soo that after the first attempt on Boong-Do’s life, they searched everywhere on Jeju for four days. Then on the fourth day, Boong-Do just suddenly appeared again. The guy who injured Boong-Do was caught and spilled everything to the government officials.

The lackey hands over the torn talisman to Ja-Soo, telling him that it was found near Boong-Do. Ja-Soo reads the talisman.

Boong-Do learns of the exact day and calculates that he doesn’t have two months worth of memories. Han-Dong is surprised. Boong-Do can’t remember anything after being attacked in the library at the palace two months ago.


I did not expect that. I was cooing and swooning during the first half. Then I nearly had a heart attack in the second half.

I was worried about the “butterfly effect” of changing something in history. I thought that the consequences of changing history would be the main plot point in the future episodes. Instead, we get a more romance-centered story where the talisman is broken and the Boong-Do loses his memories. It seems from the previews that Hee-Jin is the only one to retain hers. The drama is doing a good job in building the overarching role of Hee-Jin. We know that Boong-Do must protect In-Hyun, both in the present and the past, but how is Hee-Jin involved in the larger story? Yes, she saves his life and helps him but there seems to be more to Hee-Jin’s function in the drama. Why did Boong-Do first meet Hee-Jin and continuously after that when he traveled through time? Why is Hee-Jin playing Queen In-Hyun in the present? Is it just fate or coincidence? This is K-drama, so it must be fate, but for what reasons? Why is Hee-Jin the only one to remember Boong-Do?

A week is too long to wait….

    No way…they did not just pull the memory loss card on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was a good drama! Don’t destroy it! :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

      No no no… I got carried away in frustration(I first saw the preview for ep9 before reading the recap) This still IS a good drama. Just don’t make it a cliché, okay dear writer? Don’t kill the awesome in this drama! I see the need for the talisman to be destroyed though… but still :(… Anyway, there are so many possibilities and questions that this drama can’t possibly fail. If this fails, then I’ll lose my faith in any drama ever being good in the future!

        I would normally be stressed out about this kind of development, but strangely for this drama, I am not. The writer has done a wonderful job so far, so I’m hoping that the memory thing will be solved quickly. I trust Boong-Do.

      Is not like he lost his memory in a cliche way, it does make sense, the talisman get’s destroyed = BD’s memories gets destroyed/erased as well!

        Yep, totally agree with you:) Just got carried away and did not pause to think about it first. My oppa is right to say I’m too impulsive at times…*sigh* Unfortunately I can’t delete the damn comment 😐

    Thank you for the recap! You are so fast!
    I also cannot wait for next week.

    BD must remember HJ! It’ll be too sad if only HJ remembers him 😦

  3. This recap is a wonderful treat, thank you so much Joonni (I’m movall@Soompi).

    Btw, are you Joonni that Softy often talks about? I can’t function normally without Softy’s recaps and I know, Joonni is always there helping us. I’m always grateful for your help, can’t say thank you enough to you, big hug and thank you 🙂

    OMG, the first half of this episode made me all giddy, ha ha ha, now that I fully understand what they were talking, I’m falling more and more for the scholar Kim Boong-do, such a “player”, ha ha. Their talk in the car was freaking sweet I can’t control myself. Bwahaha, should rewatch that part again before going to bed ^^

    The second half of Ep8, I guess no one saw it coming. But it did mean BD already changed the history, Minister Min was caught and the Queen was reinstated, things was the way BD made in Ep7 right? Only he didn’t remember those, and except HJ, no one knew or remembered anything about that? I agree there must be a connection between BD and HJ. HJ’s role must be bigger and directly involves in BD’s life, not just merely a lover. I can’t wait to get the answer of those questions.

      Hi Ginko! I am that Joonni! I was helping Softy out a bit during OB. She was so sweet and generous with her thanks and compliments. I meet you here, at Soompi, and at Cadence!

      I think that there is still the possibility that Boong-Do’s action will have their consequences. I just hope that everything will turn out okay for our couple.

      May 10, 2012
      • AHHHH, i got it…..jooni form cadence..isn’it?? ahahaha…ob boundaries…

        but… in on this drama again..loveee it to read recap again.thankkk u…

    The talisman must be the link between the past and the future. So, when it was cut, his memory to the future was also sever. I wonder if he can get a replacement talisman.

    Thank you so much for the recap. You are generous in sharing your time and effort with us.

    May 10, 2012
    • I also thought of that too, although I thought it meant he can’t travel back to the future (I only watched the RAW video). But it makes sense. No wonder HJ was crying in the preview for the next episode.

      Thank you for Jooni for the recap! 😀 Really helpful and fast! One week is too long. :(( Anyway, does anyone know how many episode QIHM is supposed to have? 🙂

      May 10, 2012
      • I believe I saw somewhere that it’s supposed to have 16 episodes… so we’re halfway there. 😮

    thank you for the fast recap.
    I was happy that the couple did not have to go through evil mothers and bickering before getting some loving going on, and I really thought that all the kdrama cliches has been avoided until the memory loss card was played. I really hope that the writers of this show will handle this well, fast and painlessly.

    May 10, 2012
    • joonni #

      I was so happy about that too. The couple was so sweet from the beginning.
      As for the memory loss, it makes sense in the narrative, so I’m not stressing out. I’m glad it wasn’t some random hit-and-run horse accident that cause Boong-Do’s amnesia. 🙂
      I’m hoping that too. Everything has moved so quickly in this drama so I’m hoping that we won’t dwell long in the memory-loss angst.

    I’m dying to know what they’re saying in the preview for Episode 9. If anyone knows, please do tell! This drama is driving me all kinds of crazy, but the good kinds! Thanks so much for the recaps though! 🙂

      At your request, posted an entry on it. 🙂

  8. Thank you thank you thank you for this one, too!

    When I watched it raw, I had no idea how she lead AGAIN into kissing him. She’s a clever one, uri HJ. I love that she can’t keep her paws and lips off him, and doesn’t hold back. I love that their attraction is mutual, and they both have no problem whatsoever showing it. No fake pride. Just real feelings.
    The first part of meeting someone you like is just like that – you want to be reassured that this person really is with you and really does like you back.

    But what a bittersweet moment when she keeps circling with sad music playing! Whether he lied to her about being a Joseon man and will desert her, or whether he is a Joseon man and will have to desert her to return home – hit me (and her) pretty hard. She gives her whole heart without thinking, and that makes her that much more lovable.

    This kiss this kiss – wonderful like the others. He is so tender with her, but you can feel the stunned passion. Like “What is going on here? Who IS this tiny woman who keeps kissing me? Why can’t I stop?”

    Looks like some sadness, confusion next week.
    But like Auntie Mame said up there – if the connection to the future is cut, his memories will be, too. We can’t fret too much. We saw the first episode when they run to meet each other and kiss. It’s just going to be some paid before.
    That’s OK. I like to cry!

    I have a new hobby (because of this show) making headers.
    I have been playing with photobucket and it’s fun.
    Do you want me to try some QIHM ones for you? Don’t be afraid to say no. I understand it is your page.

    May 10, 2012
    • joonni #

      It’s wonderful to see in a K-drama a woman take initiative in physical affection. Hee-Jin is my kind of girl.

      Their attraction is so palpable to each other and I am glad that they show it. I demand a kiss every episode!

      Hee-Jin really has no shame in expressing her feelings and this is so refreshing. I love how she told him that she would really like to date him.

      Oh, thank you so much for the offer. I was actually secretly hoping someone who offer. I happily take you up on it! Yay!!!!

      May 10, 2012

      Thank you so much! I don’t need you to email me it. I think I can just save it. Gonna go try to out now. Do you know how to make the headers rotate?

      May 11, 2012
      • Go into your Dashboard at Appearance, then Headers.
        After you have more than one in there, there is an option:
        You can choose one of your previously uploaded headers, or show a random one.
        Random: Show a different image on each page.
        and below that is all the images.

        I just emailed you.

        May 11, 2012
      • You know what?
        I think it is because it is the wrong size.
        Your header is 1000X288?

    i would agree that the talisman=boong do’s time travels are related thus the lost memory would make sense. it’s not that mechanical as other kdrama’s exploits this plot device.

    thanks for the recap . this drama is officially making me insane. i won’t mind to stay like this for a while LOL

        omo! I just realized about that as well! :O
        anyway, thanks Jooni for this fast recap! I might see some people here on other sites, since I am religiously shipping BD-HJ couple now, and can’t resist in adding comments (last time I did it was when I shipped City Hall, I guess..such a long time ago..) 😀

        May 11, 2012
  10. omg, nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just stab me, why don’t you, drama? T____________T
    so, what.. it’s now the baddies’ turn to change history? will the talisman work for anybody?
    i’m almost hoping that she find a way to get to where he is. does the talisman have to be *that* talisman? what gave it special magical properties? does it have to be yeon-wol? can he just tattoo the words to his back? XD; (i know my questions are starting to get ridiculous, sorry…)

    in any case… thanks very much for recapping! ❤

      I think the Talisman should no longer work as it’s already cut in half, unless someone makes another copy.

      May 11, 2012
      • joonni #

        I guessing that it won’t work, also. Maybe there is another way to time-travel. A week to find out! A week!

    I was sort of expecting this shift for a while. I mean, the ‘cute’ nerver lasts forever when it comes to k-dramas. 🙂 For a while now I’ve been muttering that the talisman ought to be surgically attached to Boong Do as I was sure he’d loose it at some point. I’m guessing we’ll get the aftermath of the talisman being cut in ep 9 and the reunion in ep 10. That’s how it looks like anyway, going by the preview. Very curious now to see how they get BD back to the future. Darn, it’s a looooong way to next Wednesday.

    May 11, 2012
    • joonni #

      I was so involved in the cute that this shift was totally a surprise for me. Like you, I’m guessing that episode 9 will be painful but we’ll get good news in 10.

    Thanks a lot joonni for your recaps:) I felt bad at first when he lost his memories…but, now when I think about it, its our Boongdo, not the usual k-hero…so,yeah I think he will get over it soon:) atleast that’s what I hope!:)

    Thanks for the recap(s)! I’m thrilled at finding more and more people watching and recapping this show. Watching ep9’s trailer I realised BOTH have lost their memories. How sad!!!! 😦 But whatever the mind forgets the heart remembers, and I have faith in the writer because whatever questions we’ve had, the writer goes and answers it immediately in the following episode, heh. It’s like he/she knows how the viewers think.

    Boong Do’s gift of Audi is the same one she drove in the opening of episode 1! In this episode Boong Do was told by his servant that it’s already end April, whereas in the first episode when they met it was 18th April. So can I assume that…they went back in time or something?!!? This tailsman thing looks like it will be solved in two episodes.

    There’s much love heaped on Boong Do (because, how perfect can a guy get?!), but I love Hee Jin just as much. She’s not afraid to be direct and make the first move, which, like BD said, is what makes her charming and adorable. And BD hit it on the spot when he told Soo-Kyung that she’s not an airhead, it’s just that she’s too good of a person to bear any motives/grudges. She is effervescence personified and the way BD stares at her every move just melts my heart. He luuuurves her XD

      You are really sharp! Thanks for pointing that out! The first scene in the show gives me hope that tthey would end up together. The red robes probably meant he became a minister or something. I love this show to bits. The chemistry is so magical!

      Wow, what a sharp idea. The Audi!

      I love Hee-Jin just as much as I love Boong-Do. I never pinned her for an airhead and she is just a lovely, lovely, person. She isn’t drawn-out in broad stereotypical strokes. She is so perfectly real to me, without it having it beaten over my head. I think it is the way Yoo In-Na plays her.

      Thank you so much! You are right! How can I forget the first part of ep 1. Indeed she was driving the audi when they met. … There is another kiss when they meet (I think) ^^… I hope he has an answer… come with me or I’ll stay with you,,, I think it will be come with me… Will HJ go to the past? WIll they forget her in present time? What would you choose?

        Hmmm, interesting question. So far we don’t know if anyone can travel back in time with BD. But if i was given the choice, I would not got back to Joseon era. I hope BD chooses to stay in modern time. I love romance in my dramas but I’m a bit more practical in real life. If I were Hee-jin, I wouldn’t be able to go back to an era with so many inconveniences and rules about women, even with someone like BD.

  14. Thank you so much for recapping this awesome wonderful drama. Kim Boong-do makes me forget about Lee Jae-ha, I haven’t bother to watch the last 3 episodes of K2H, I can’t believe it, I love K2H. I also love this show more than FBRS and SUFBB, and I gave those dramas 10/10. This show has it all in 50 minutes. The Joseon part is so intense but the next minute you get SK and HJ exchanging that crazy hand signals, LOL. And the way Hee-jin can’t keep her eyes off Boong-do’s lips is so oh-geul (thank you so much for explaining the term). I agree that the memory lost makes sense. And before the car kiss, I just love when urri confucianist said, “It’s a lie” just to comfort her, and when she scoffed that he just lied, that little smile he made, awww…

      I am a huge fan of Lee Seung Gi and love K2H but I got sidetracked when I started watching this drama. I just don’t have the emotional breadth to watch those two dramas at the same time.

      I gave SUFBB a 10/10 too. So perfect in every way but everyone has their individual preferences, and for me, this drama pushes every single button. It gives me so many swoon-worthy scenes.

        Which drama is SUFBB? I’ll have to check it out if you guys like it so much!
        I was using QIM to fill time while waiting K2H and totally fell in love with it. Two totally different drama and loving both in different ways… I’m going to have severe withdrawls when the two are done unless I can find another daebak drama to follow!

      boong do said it himself, “Human beings may plan, but it is up to the Heavens whether everything turns out the way they are supposed to.”
      boong do sped things up to have min am caught in conspiracy and re-instate queen in-hyun. bc he affected history, the hwan hi yam ? never happened (it was a plan min am was about to put in effect).
      so, boong do changing history is the cause, and getting the amulet cut and forgetting heejin is the effect. basically his plans has led the heavens to mete out his punishment; bc let’s not forget that the amulet didn’t just save his life. it brought him to heejin
