It’s Okay, It’s Love Episode 14 Thoughts

Poem: When the wind blows, let it come, stay, and leave. When a feeling of longing comes, let it come, stay and leave. Pain will come. It will stay and live. It will live, then leave.

Hae Soo: This poem is really great. Jang Jae Yeol, like this poem, everything will pass.

 

 

Damn, I knew Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung were good but I didn’t know they were this good. They portrayed the pain of their characters so well; it’s unbelievable. Like seriously, tear my heart out why don’t you?

In particular, the scene that turned me into a ball of emotions was the scene where Hae Soo snuck in to see Jae Yeol. Anyone who has watched the episode knows exactly why. After being forcibly admitted to the hospital, Jae Yeol has been prevented from seeing Hae Soo since her presence triggers his schizophrenic episodes/makes them worse. This separation lasted for more than two weeks, which for our lovebirds probably felt like an eternity. It was so sweet that Hae Soo slept in the hospital this entire time, not wanting to stay too far from Jae Yeol. When Hae Soo finally couldn’t take it anymore and decided to see him, against the advise of a psychiatric resident, their reunion was simply heartbreaking. Jae Yeol’s difficulty getting his words out and both of their emotional break downs was hard to watch.

Hae Soo: You look good.

Jae Yeol: Words…Words won’t come to me that well. It’s hard to walk, too.

Hae Soo: It’s because of the medication.

Jae Yeol: I want to see you, but suddenly get sleepy.

Hae Soo: Just wait a little bit. Later, it won’t be like that.

Jae Yeol: Even now, seeing you in a while, I want to make you laugh, but I don’t know how to make you laugh. I can’t think of any words.

Hae Soo: Later, you’ll be able to.

Jae Yeol: I want to hug you, but I don’t think I can. I’m not sexy, huh? [Hae Soo hugs him] Hae Soo-ah.

Hae Soo: Yeah?

Jae Yeol: Let…me out. Here…I…don’t feel like myself. [Looks towards Kang Woo] If seeing Kang Woo is a disorder, then I will fix it on my own will. Trust me, and let me out. I won’t see Kang Woo ever again. Being here, I feel so small. I don’t like this feeling. Let…me out. [Hae Soo kisses him] Sh-should I not say these kinds of things? Then…will you leave?

Hae Soo: I’ll be back again.

Jae Yeol: If I hold onto you, then they’ll inject me with medication again, right?

Hae Soo: You have to trust me. Kang Woo is a hallucination. I’m real. There is a limit to medication. Even if you see Kang Woo, you have to know that it’s a hallucination to fix your disorder. You have to know that Kang Woo is a reflection of yourself that you created. Finding that illusion and the contradiction isn’t done by doctors, but by you.

Jae Yeol: I’ll find it at home.

Hae Soo: even if I go out, don’t call for me. That’s how I can come back to you again.

Jae Yeol: Hae Soo. Hae Soo-ah… Hae Soo-ah… Hae Soo-ah… Hae Soo-ah…

The way Jae Yeol looked at her when she first entered the room was filled with such love and longing. Hae Soo, ever the strong one, had to try her darndest not to break down in front of Jae Yeol even though you can see that every fiber of her being wanted to hold him and let it all out. The saddest part of their whole exchange had to be Jae Yeol’s pleas for Hae Soo to let him go home since in the hospital, he feels so small and not at all like himself. It was so difficult to watch how listless he became after he was hospitalized and how much of his usual confidence and eloquence was lost.

Interestingly, after Hae Soo left, Jae Yeol kept calling her name and ignored Kang Woo’s presence. Is this the first step to healing? How wonderful is it that his love for Hae Soo is helping him find the will to overcome his illness? It was her presence also that allowed him to fall asleep, however shortly, on a bed.

I’m so glad that Jae Yeol has such a solid circle of support around him because we see how cruel society can be through Hae Soo’s family’s disapproval of Jae Yeol. Hae Soo’s mom and sister liked him so much before when they thought he was “normal” but now that he is sick, they abandon him. A part of me understands where Hae Soo’s family is coming from in wanting Hae Soo to break up with Jae Yeol. They want to protect her and they don’t want her to live with the responsibility of taking care of a “patient” for the rest of her life like how mom did with dad. After having experienced it they think that it would be too much for Hae Soo to handle and will only cause her great suffering. Mom wants Hae Soo to have what she couldn’t have; a happy, carefree life. However, Hae Soo is a grown woman and she should be able to make her own decisions when it comes to love and life. The girl’s a psychiatrist for crying out loud and has a good head on her shoulders. [Aside: mom slapping Hae Soo made me seriously angry. Arggh.]

Of course, their reaction towards Jae Yeol having schizophrenia is a classic example of how people fail to understand mental illness and therefore fear it. I’m especially fond of the way this show tries to normalize mental illness and its portrayal of how flawed society’s fear and ignorance of mental illness is. This prejudice is what makes people who need help feel small and worthless. When really, they are suffering from a sickness of the heart and mind, just like how everyone suffers physical illnesses of the body.

We also get to learn what Hae Soo wanted to tell Jae Yeol after their first night together and as expected, even after he heard it, Jae Yeol still loves her. His unwavering love and understanding is beautiful and is a glimpse of the love and understanding Hae Soo shows Jae Yeol as he go through his difficult time.

Jae Yeol: Remember? On our first night at the beach, why you cried, what you were thinking about, you said that you would tell me later. After listening to your story, if I still told you that I love you, only then, you said you would believe that I really love you. And that you would tell me that you love me.

Hae Soo: Today, I’ll tell you what I couldn’t say then. After listening to all of my story, I’m afraid that you’ll love all of your affection for me. But I’ll tell you.

Jae Yeol: If it’s hard, don’t, Hae Soo-ah.

Hae Soo: No, I want to. I’m always strong, vicious, and selfish, but at the very least, to you, I think I can fall. To me, that’s what love is. [awwwwwww] It was my senior year of high school. There was a call made to my school saying that my dad was at the emergency room. I wasn’t even that surprised. This had happened multiple times before. As I ran to the hospital, what I wished for was that my dad wasn’t alive. But my dad lived again. I wasn’t happy. I felt like everything was back to where it started. [Flashback to young Hae Soo calling president Kim asking why he isn’t meeting mom and what about college] So mom and president Kim started meeting again. I sold mom to president Kim like that, and I went to medical school.

Jae Yeol: I love you.

Hae Soo: I love you a lot.

Jae Yeol: I love you, Hae Soo-ah. I love you a lot.

This episode also required a lot less hypothesizing on my part since we had Jo sunbae to do a bit of exposition about Jae Yeol’s hallucination and his sudden onset of ALS. Which, totally called it. *Gives self congratulatory pat on the back*

Jo sunbae: His Lou Gehrig’s is a delusional pain disorder created subconsciously ad shared between him and Han Kang Woo. It’s an example that shows the weakness of the mind controlling the body…Putting together all of the situations until now, Jang Jae Yeol’s reality testing is completely broken into pieces. Patient, Jang Jae Yeol, as soon as he received the wound after his brother’s release three years ago, probably subconsciously realized that his brother’s resentment would never fade unless he died. That’s when he first hallucinated Kang Woo. Then his subconscious started writing a scenario that would, in the end, lead to his death using Kang Woo. Dying while saving Kang Woo. His subconscious chose an accident rather than a suicide because an accident would cause less pain for his mom, whom he loves. And he probably thought that would be the best way to compensate his brother who unfairly lived in prison for 14 years. In addition, it is a perfect scenario to keep his mother in a dissociated state forever.

*tears* Seriously, hope hyung will let go of his resentment soon and be there for Jae Yeol and his mom.

Jae Yeol’s continued resistance to believe that Kang Woo is a hallucination is disheartening but let’s hope he’ll come to terms with it soon. (well with 2 episodes left, he kind of has to…)

[watches CCTV footage of fight with Kang Woo’s dad and from the night of the accident]

Jo sunbae: The reason why we forcibly admitted you, do you understand now? Because you continue getting hurt, there was no other way. [Shows Jae Yeol evidence pictures from step-dad’s murder trial]

Jae Yeol: [Thinks back to seeing mom light newspaper on fire] Mom hasn’t done anything wrong. Mom didn’t do anything wrong.

Jo sunbae: I know.

Jae Yeol: Hyung is pitiful. I…I…

Jo sunbae: Jae Yeol-ah, where is Kang Woo right now?

[Jae Yeol looks toward windows]

Jo sunbae: Is Kang Woo here? [Jae Yeol nods] This is a hospital and a place where regular civilians can’t enter. Why would Kang Woo be here? Jae Yeol-ah, why? I can’t see him, but you see him. A moment ago, in the video, Kang Woo wasn’t there, but you saw him again. Does something seem weird? [Jae Yeol nods] It is weird, but you’re saying you think Kang Woo is there. Then what is Kang Woo? Is it something fake that your mind created?

Jae Yeol: Kang Woo is real. Kang Woo only believes in me. If I’m not there, then Kang Woo doesn’t have anyone. Everyone is uncomfortable about someone who doesn’t have anything and neglects him.

Jo sunbae: Do you think I would do the same? Hae Soo, too?

Jae Yeol: Hae Soo, I miss her.

Jo sunbae: When you and your mom were getting beaten up, were people like that? Uncomfortable and neglecting.

Jae Yeol: To Hyung, too.

Jo sunbae: Then Jae Yeol-ah, is Kang Woo, you?

Jae Yeol: No. Kang Woo is Kang Woo.

 

After watching the CCTV footage and seeing how worried and how much Hae Soo cried because of him [which random CCTV close up much?], there was a peculiar moment where Jae Yeol was in his room and thought back Hae Soo’s many pessimistic statements about love when it came to Hye Jin and Yoon Cheol. How she thought that it would be hard for them to endure even with love and how she doesn’t think they’ll stay together forever. I’m curious to know what Jae Yeol was thinking there. Does he think that Hae Soo will leave him?

Anyway, this episode was amazing and I can’t believe we only have 2 episodes left. What am I going to do?!?!?

And this song isn’t part of the soundtrack but I love it and I find that it suits the theme of this episode perfectly:

    I decided that I am a total recap junkie, (I hope you won’t think badly of me that I have read recaps from other sites as well) but I really enjoy seeing how differently people deal with each episode. I am grateful to every person who takes the time and put in an effort to recap each episode of this wonderful show. What I have really enjoyed about your recaps is your fondness for the relationship between JY & HS. I have to say this has been mostly my focal point of the show (rather than concentrating on other issues). I know people got annoyed by some aspects of their relationship and we all know how ill JY was from pretty much early on BUT I didn’t allow that to overshadow my enjoyment of the many beautiful romantic and tender scenes between our leads. Perhaps I am like a child, I simply took on board the things I loved about the show and ignored the things that annoyed me lol. And because I religiously avoid previews etc., I was able to be entranced by so many scenes when seeing them for the first time.

    My God, this episode just broke my heart from beginning to end. I will always treasure that amazingly moving scene between JY & HS (at the beginning of the episode) at his apartment of them sitting in bed together and HS confessing to JY and later JY falling asleep in the bed for the first time. I cried like a baby. I think all this time HS was afraid to tell JY that she loved him because she didn’t feel worthy of being loved (hence she kept on asking JY repeatedly “Do you love me?” in other episodes). And God knows I love Jo In Sung but I bawled (again!) when HS locked herself in the bathroom begging Dr Lee to sedate JY so that he won’t know what’s happening when they forcibly admit him.

    I won’t even mention the rest of the episode – because I will have to go to therapy myself if I re-live it lol. Both JIS and GHJ deserve an Oscar for this episode.

    I am now just hoping for some dignity for JY and a happy ending.

      Thank you for your wonderful comment. It was a joy to read.

      Haha, not at all. When I love a drama, I usually try to read what others are thinking about it as well. It just enhances the viewing pleasure and my understanding of the show overall.

      I LOVE Hae Soo and Jae Yeol’s relationship! I love how their relationship grew. It was nice to watch a couple get together early on in a show and then see them experience the highs and lows of being in a relationship (their low was particularly low…) A romance done well (with actual romance!) is my achilles heel and this show had just the perfect amount.

      Yes, this episode broke my heart and tear ducts. It was so beautiful and moving! Everyone’s acting was phenomenal. I’m probably going to marathon the show in preparation for the finale week. I can’t believe this show is ending, somebody, hold me! ;( I don’t know if I can handle it!

    It’s as though they’ve take two disorders and mushed them together to make one… PTSD would be the result of the trauma from hyung’s fork stabbing (and going back even further when the step-dad was abusing him) but PTSD doesn’t work like that – you have flashbacks of the trauma and startle easily, have difficulty concentrating etc.
    http://www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/PTSD-overview/dsm5_criteria_ptsd.asp

    Schizophrenia must now include two or more of the following 1) delusions 2) auditory or visual hallucinations 3) disorganized thoughts…but they don’t work like that the drama depicts them either…Plus schizophrenia has a genetic component. I know it’s a drama, but at least they could have tried to get the medical/psychiatric stuff right since it’s a drama about centered around that….
    http://www.dsm5.org/Documents/Schizophrenia%20Fact%20Sheet.pdf

    Let me give you an example of the person with schizophrenia that I worked with. Steve (25 yrs old) had a devil and would make the sign of the cross to chase him away. He would spit because it kept the voices from interrupting him and he’d talk nonsense – a conversation was cyclical and didn’t have any meaning. He would yell things to the wall and all of this was while he was medicated (he also had a shunt in his brain). I remember seeing a video of him prior to the onset of schizophrenia and couldn’t believe how normal he was, able to keep a job, and hold a conversation. Just a few years later, it was a completely different person who had to be prompted to shower and handle all the basic hygiene rituals that we take for granted everyday.

    I’m still finding the drama really interesting but I wished they’d been more faithful to the reality of these disorders since the general public watching them will now be left with incorrect assumptions/information. Overall, I’m hoping for a good (realistic) ending for the couple who have a lot of obstacles to work through!

      Hi Jenn,

      It’s been a while.

      Personally, I give the writer a lot of slack when it comes to the psychology of the show since, when it comes down to it, she’s a writer, not psychologist. However, I think she did a rather good job at trying to depict certain mental disorders in a favorable light, since she’s trying to spur society’s acceptance of such disorders.

      There are many different types of schizophrenia and everyone is different in how severely they are affected by the illness. According to the Diagnostics and Statistical Manual V, here’s a brief checklist for a diagnosis of schizophrenia:

      (1) For at least a 1 month period, at least two of the following symptoms are present for a significant portion of time. One or more must be a, b, or c.
      (a) Delusions
      (b) Hallucinations
      (c) Disorganized speech
      (d) Grossly abnormal psychomotor behavior, including catatonia
      (e) Negative symptoms (i.e. poverty of speech, social withdrawal, loss of volition….)
      (2) Functioning in school, work, interpersonal relations, or self-care is markedly below the level achieved prior to the onset of symptoms.
      (3) Continuous signs of the disturbance for at least 6 months, at least one month of which includes symptoms in full and active form.
      (credit: Comer, 2014)

      If we just base it off of that checklist, then Jae Yeol could be diagnosed with schizophrenia but I do agree that Jae Yeol’s particular case is rather different from the majority of cases that I’ve heard and read about but I think the writer has done a decent job since she’s also trying to tell a heartwarming and feel-good romance.

      There is definitely a genetic and biological component to schizophrenia but you can’t rule out the psychological and sociocultural factors either. For example, studies often reveal that people with schizophrenia experienced severe stress (& family stress) or traumas early in their lives (Bennington & Kuipers, 2011). Which leads to your first point. Many mental disorders are co-morbid, so it’s not like if you have one mental illness you can’t possibly have another. PTSD and schizophrenia actually do tend to co-occur quite often and Jae Yeol did display some of the symptoms of PTSD as well in the nightmares and flashbacks. Of course, I’m definitely not arguing that the depiction of mental illness was perfect in this drama but it was a good attempt for a show that has a love story to tell on top of a psychological drama.

      Anyways, I love this show to pieces so I tend to give it more room to breath. 😀

    Actually the DSM 5 has gotten rid of the subtypes of schizophrenia (See below)

    Schizophrenia subtypes have been dumped in the DSM-5 because of their “limited diagnostic stability, low reliability, and poor validity,” according to the APA. (The old DSM-IV had specified the following schizophrenia subtypes: paranoid, disorganized, catatonic, undifferentiated, and residual type.)

    The APA also justified the removal of schizophrenia subtypes from the DSM-5 because they didn’t appear to help with providing better targeted treatment, or predicting treatment response.

      Okay so I admit I’m not as up to date on the DSM V compared to the DSM IV…but the heart of what I was trying to convey was that not everyone with schizophrenia looks and acts the same. You can’t just assume everyone will behave and have the same symptoms as a textbook definition since schizophrenia is still a rather mysterious illness and the mind is an enigma. The writer, in my opinion, has done a stand up job even if the depiction is not “perfect”.

    Again, I always looks forward to your thoughts about each episode. You and softy are my favorites.

    A lot of poeple have dropped the show because they couldn’t take how medically inaccurate this show is. As a viewer in this almost solely for the romance and relationship progression, i’m a little glad they don’t delve too much into the medical (ahem) aspect of the show. I know the medical inaccuracies irk a lot of people, but i’m not watching expecting to learn lots of psychology. There are books for that. I am naturally skeptical of anything I see/hear on tv anyway and i’m going to assume that most people are as well. I just accept these ‘plot devices’ as they are – plot devices. 🙂

    There are two episodes left so people may also consider giving the writer the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she’ll reveal in the next episode that it was PTSD all along. I remember people on dramabeans were all up in arms about how unprofessional and stupid Sunbae Jo was as a doctor to leave the sodium amytal unsupervised. The next episode revealed it was not sodium amytal after all. Others complained about how inaccurate the show depicted its intended use. Sunbae Jo never made it out to be more than it was. It was only Jae Bum that believed it to be no-fail truth serum. My point, I guess, is to have more trust and patience with the writer? Jo In Sung even said the first two episodes were scattered and that Noh Hee Kyung works very gradually in her story-telling.

      Hiya Jill! It was really interesting to be able and theorize about what’s wrong with Jae Yeol but really, I’m mainly watching for the romance between our two leads as well. It’s such a beautiful love story and the cast and characters are fantastic. I can seriously watch Jo In Sung, Gong Hyo Jin, Sung Dong Il and Lee Kwang Soo on my screen forever! I’m getting so sentimental about this show! Filming has officially ended and we only have two episodes left! What to do?

    Jill – bless you! How wonderfully refreshing and mature your views are! I couldn’t have said it better myself :). As viewers we wouldn’t be able to EVER enjoy watching anything on TV or in a movie if we took everything presented to us as gospel. I work in a specific industry and yes, granted, when I watch a TV show about my profession I occasionally roll my eyes and chuckle because that’s not how things are done in reality but that doesn’t bother me and I always concentrate on relationships between characters rather than on how inaccurately procedures are portrayed etc. I agree that people forget at times we’re watching fiction and that if someone is truly interested in the subject matter – there are documentaries/medical shows for this purpose :).

    I also agree wholeheartedly with you Dramapenchant and your comments that the writer should be given some “poetic licence” with the show as she is simply trying to give us an overview and a glimpse into mental illness and is attempting to teach us acceptance through love and patience (by portraying this via JY & HS’s relationship and other relationships in the show).

    I have learned a while back that you can never please everyone and people will find a way of criticising everything. Yes I also read Dramabeans and other sites and there are tonnes of comments posted about mental illness, medical treatments/procedures and domestic violence so in light of such serious issues I felt almost ashamed (until I came across this blog!) that I enjoyed the simple things about IOTL like the beautiful friendships between all main characters, the humour, the amazing MUSIC (every song has been outstanding!), the free, honest and easy discussions about sex and relationships in general.

    And as I mentioned in my earlier post above – my favourite aspect has been the relationship between JY and HS. I loved the fact that if they bickered they made up just as quickly, that so many issues that I thought would drag on through the entire show were resolved very quickly (much to my pleasant surprise!). And we were given so many memorable moments – from the “lump in the throat” scene of HS tending to JY’s wounds in his bathroom (Ep6) with him holding her hand to the beautiful beach scenes of them in Okinawa (night and “morning after”). I know I am greedy but I want more of these scenes lol. And you already know which scenes I loved so much in Ep14 (so I won’t repeat myself here).

    In a way watching this show has been like putting on a warm comfy pair of slippers and just enjoying the ride (until my heart was torn out in Ep13 & 14 but I KNOW these issues had to finally unfold).

    I am certain I will chew the remainder of my nails off (while holding onto my tissue box!) with the upcoming episodes.

    I am with you Dramapenchant that we’ll be lost without it :(. Perhaps after the show has finished both you and Jill (and anybody else!) wouldn’t mind sharing YOUR favourite scenes from the show :).

      I also have to include, in addition to your already awesome list, that I love how subtle some of the interactions are. Sometimes, if you just blink, you might miss the nuance to Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin’s acting. Just a few examples that come to mind was Jae Yeol’s small smile after Hae Soo kissed him the first time in the hospital scene or when Hae Soo was so close to breaking after Jae Yeol kissed her during the shaving scene.

      Here’s hoping that they have some “passionate sex” (Hae Soo’s words!! :D) after this storm passes!

      Wow, there are so many great scenes to choose from…but the scene that will always have a special place in my heart is the last scene from episode 4 when we found out that Kang Woo was in fact a hallucination. That was the moment where I fell, head over heels, in love with this show. I elaborated on it a lot better in my Episode 4 thoughts, but that scene completely blew me away. There was something so tragic about seeing a man, so broken yet unaware.

      Some veryclose runner-ups would definitely be Jae Yeol and Hae Soo’s hospital reunion in this episode and the scene where Jo sunbae recreated the crime scene from 13 years ago. Also, any scene between Hae Soo and Jae Yeol are pretty high up there as well! 😀

        You were spot on when you said there were too many great scenes to choose from. I don’t know what I was thinking lol.

        You made a great point about “subtle” little expressions that both GHJ and JIS add to their characters, I know exactly what you meant when you wrote it. Another good example of this is just a little quiver/twitch in the corner of HS’s mouth when she’s confessing her secret to JY (Ep14), such a small thing (as you said “blink and you miss it”) and yet it added so much to that moment. OR (in Ep10) JY’s facial expression/look when in the middle of their argument HS tells him she said all these mean things simply because her heart ached to see him neglect himself etc… (BTW I LOVED that entire scene…JY with a stubble and then the little “thumbs up” at the suggestion of lights being turned off :)). Ok, I will shut up now… lol

        I will be “Missing in Action” until I see Eps 15 & 16 as I don’t want to know/see any spoilers but as soon as I have seen the eps I’ll be DYING to read your recaps :). Till then, fingers crossed for a beautiful ending :).

    I have to admit I have been dying to see this episode but I have been slacking with my kdramas. Wow, I am honestly speechless. I cried so much watching this episode. I think I used a whole box of tissue. One of the main reason why I love to watch kdramas because it takes me away from reality for a while. It actually makes me believe that love like this actually exists. I really, really enjoy this drama because of all the twists and turns. I mean, authors are not psychologists or doctors so of course, a lot of this medical crap is not correct. I mean, honestly though…how many viewers out there will understand half of the medical terminology they are using? If you have taken a basic psychology class or a biology class…maybe! Lets just say…if a doctor did write a drama, I honestly think it would end up becoming a science documentary! Ha ha! We watch kdramas because we enjoy all the lovey dovey stuff and you know we are all prevs waiting for skinship!! My husband works in the forensic field and he loves CSI, Bones, and House! He thinks they are great shows even though the science sometimes is a little off. I have asked him if it bothered him that what they show on TV is not real life and he have always replied, “If I sat there and show off my knowledge of what is really going on…then I would probably hate these shows but they are still solely for entertainment purposes so I am just going to enjoy them.” Anywho! I started watching What’s with this family/What happens to my family and I really like it! I think it would be something you would enjoy @dramapenchant

        I was wondering if you dropped the show…! 😀 Right?!?! This episode just broke my heart on so many levels! The acting was superb! The romantic in me watches these shows and wants to believe that love like this exists in real life. It’s great that writer Noh is trying to help alleviate the stigma attached with mental illness and I think just the fact that she’s getting people to talk about it and to research the different disorders is good enough for me! She’s balanced the romance and the psychological aspect just perfectly as to not overwhelm viewers and to not, as you say, turn it into a documentary.

        Thanks for the recommendation! I will probably watch it once the entire drama is completely done airing since I don’t think I have the patience to follow a long weekend drama while it still has quite a chunk left to air! 😛 Also, I do want to make sure that the reviews for the show remains good all throughout the series before I make that sort of commitment.
