I am so with Anon who said that they are still a bit worried about the Thailand pictures. I would have sent that USB through a shredder and made a soufflé of it to feed all my enemies. Are USB’s water proof? because I feel like some plumber is going to fish it out in like episode 14. MW will just have to come back and save the day again.

MISTY LIVE RECAP: EPISODE 8
The song is playing and a girl is stunned. We also see a boy all bloody and they are both staring at something. They are in a jewelry or clock shop and no one is talking. The girl is stunned and crying. Myung-woo tells her to just leave, she has nothing to do with this incident, just leave!
She hugs him and he tells her to just forget about what happened today, don’t tell anyone, you weren’t here today. Leave! Hae-ran slowly backs away and leaves the store. MW stays and cries, he is about to throw up and sits on the floor. HR is running outside and MW is inside, a dead man is laying on the floor.
HR is running down the street, but then she stops. She sees MW as a man. He turns around and we see older HR, MW walks to her and he puts a bloody knife on the table and leaves.
HR wakes up to TW’s voice…Hae-ran….Hae-ran-ah.
She gets up and he asks her if she had a dream…a bad dream? She said yes, but she wants to know if something happened? TW tells her that Kevin Lees case went to the prosecution office.
RICH LAWYER AND WH
The Rich lawyer doesn’t want WH to indict HR, why does he want to investigate this case so much? WH says it is because this case is TW’s case, he will show rich lawyer just how good he is.
DETECTIVE AND EJ
EJ is thankful that she isn’t giving up on Kevin Lee’s case. This is a complete 180 from before. The detective thinks that something is strange and his colleague SJ thinks the same. Why did she change her mind, what is the reason?
HR is sitting at her makeup table at home, she is thinking that it is okay, everything will be okay. She will be fine now and in the future. Meanwhile, EJ thinks to herself, who will have the most damage, the murderer, or HR? She grips the chip in her hand and we see a split screen between EJ and HR
Everyone is at a meeting. JW says that the case they are working on is suspicious. But the director wants all the facts, all JW has is circumstantial evidence. She has a recording, but no hard facts. JW says that she interviewed 3 people, but she doesn’t have the evidence. She didn’t get it. GS says that they won’t report it…the news is fact. Everyone hammered JW about her reporting during this meeting.
JW hurries and catches up with HR afterward. She says that she saw everyone’s faces from the pictures. HR tells her that she needs to get those pictures, they need to see those faces. HR tells JW that they have investigated this several times but they couldn’t show it because they didn’t have the evidence. JW says that she can show the picture and HR gives her 5 minutes to bring it. JW runs off happily to fetch it.
TW AND COLLEAGUE
TW tells his colleague that HR is hot-headed. She will say whatever she needs to say in whatever position she is in. The sunbae asks about the Kevin Lee case, does TW think it is okay?
Cut to the rich lawyer telling TW that the prosecutor WH wanted to take on this case. But everything will be as they planned.
Then cut back to TW and his sunbae, he tells the sunbae that the biggest law firm in Korea will take on her case (the rich lawyer’s law firm). The sunbae thinks this might be okay then. And we cut to the rich lawyer telling TW…thank you for coming back to our law firm.
KC is confused, why is TW wrapping up their business? TW tells him that he is going back to that big law firm. KC understands, but he turns his back and is distressed. He just lost a job. But then TW tells him that they can go there together. KC turns around and hugs TW, he is so happy. He runs to the closet and tells his wife that he is working for the big law firm now! Then he comes out and tells TW that he has to wrap up the fight against the company before he goes to the big law firm. All the while TW didn’t look too happy about leaving his company.
TW and KC go to the company and see EJ there. TW tells her that she doesn’t have to be there, but she wants to be there. They leave together and get on the elevator. But then two people come onto the elevator and start to talk about the case. HR’s wife is handling EJ’s husband’s murder case. They are all crazy! How can they handle things like this? People think that HR was great, but her image went away, the woman really liked her and everyone hated Kevin Lee.
They get off the elevator, but then EJ follows them. She tells them that they need some evidence that KL and HR had something. They ask who she is and she says that she is KL’s wife. They need evidence, why do they say these things, give her the evidence! it is not true! Do you know how much the victims are suffering! if you are the victim can you just talk about it like that! My husband died and I have a baby who won’t know his father’s face, but these rumors will hurt him forever like a scarlet mark. Have you thought about that!
She starts wailing in the open area as all the people look at her. TW is by her side.
HR calls the prison guard to see where MW lives, but they don’t know. Then she gets a call from the reporter friend. The reporter tells her that she will be in that position of the government speaker. HR is shocked and SY is as well. She says that the government decided, she doesn’t know who performed this magic, but it has been decided.
EJ sits at TW’s dest and he gives her some tea. He asks her if she is okay now and she tells him that she is sorry. She should have just let it go, but she couldn’t control himself. He tells her that he knows how she feels but she says that he couldn’t possibly guess how it feels. Then she tells him that she really hates her husband, how did he die like that and why with HR?
TW gives her his handkerchief to wipe her tears. Then EJ wants to know if TW is okay, doesn’t he hate HR when he hears those rumors. But TW says that he wasn’t a good husband, he gave her a hard time a lot and he left her alone a lot. If the rumor is true, maybe it is because of him. It might have happened because he was not good enough. But if it isn’t true, then it is also his fault. He should have just blocked all these rumors from spreading around and he feels so sorry for her. But the thing he is the sorriest about is that he also suspected her. So he is the most sorrowful about it because he was swayed by the rumors.
EJ thinks for a moment and then wipes her tears some more. She takes a deep breath and asks him, what if it was true? What if KL and HR’s relationship was true? What if there is evidence out there somewhere? Do you think you could say things like that then? Eh?
TW tells her that HR said she didn’t do it so he will trust what she said. EJ thinks, ah…okay. Fine. Let me leave now, I will go home by myself. She leaves, but then she stops at the door and tells TW that HR has a past that she can’t talk about. TW says that he knows a little bit, but EJ says that he doesn’t know anything about her painful past. She leaves.
EJ grabs a taxi and takes a deep breath inside. They drive off and MW watches her driving out. It looks like he might have put a bug in TW’s office? he is listening to something.
Meanwhile, TW is back in his office thinking hard. He sits at his desk and the camera scrolls to the bug under his table. MW is listening in on everything and looks off toward EJ.
BLUE HOUSE MEETING
HR meets with the BH representative and they talk about her future job. HR wants to ask him a question, why do they want to hire her? She has a rumor. But the BH guy tells her that people trust what she says more than gossip and she is the best candidate. To him, he is half trusting her and the decision maker half trusts her as well. HR’s truth is the only thing that can prove her quality. HR tells him that she will do News 9 until this week and she will clean out her surroundings. BH guy leaves and HR continues to sit at the desk.
HR walks out and talks to TW on the phone, she can’t believe this has happened. TW tells her that she worked the hardest, so of course, she deserved it. HR looks up at the JBC building and flashes back to when she got her brooch. She tells TW that they can have a baby again, but the audition is only a one-time thing. But TW walks out on her…he shouldn’t have waited for her back then. Then we cut to her eating meeyuk guk (seaweed soup) for the baby while at work.
Back to the present, HR tells TW, thank you. She wanted to hear congratulations from TW the most. TW tells her congratulations again, from the bottom of his heart. They hang up and HR looks up at the building a moment longer and then goes inside.
TW is at a flower shop looking around, but he keeps thinking about what EJ said…what if it is true and there is evidence somewhere? But he is pulled out of his thoughts as the flower bouquet is presented to him. Meanwhile, EJ is thinking about what TW said as she watches the car video again. She wonders if he can say that after he watches the video.
TW starts to drive home and EJ calls him. He looks hesitantly at the phone, he doesn’t want to pick up. But then he calls her back. But EJ calls the detective! She says that she has to tell him something. TW tries to call EJ, but she isn’t picking up. Meanwhile, EJ is telling the detective that there is something that she didn’t tell him before…
Cut to TW putting his car in drive and doing a super U-turn. He revs his engine as he drives somewhere. At the same time, J tells the detective that she will see him at 7 pm. She leaves the USB in her computer and leaves.
GR does not want HR to leave and go to the Blue House, he tells her that it is a very competitive place, way more competitive than JBC. HR tells him that this news today will be her last news. But GS tells her that this place fits her the best. He has raised her, she has a lot of things she can do here. But HR brings up when she was about to be fired. She says that she will be forgotten slowly, first, morning news then, evening news until she fades away. GS tells her that she will regret it, but HR says that it is better to go there and regret it, she has always been like that.
Tha manager comes in and says that JW will investigate the company some more. HR says that she told her too. But the manager is annoyed and GS yells that they will report it if JW finds the evidence, just forget about the Blue House! But HR wants to know why GS is so angry now. Why does he care about that company so much? GS tells her that she wants to get promoted, so don’t make any big trouble and just make herself comfortable. Don’t get yourself into any more trouble.
But HR says that she will look at JW’s report and she will decide whether they should put the news out or not. She leaves and GS sighs. Then the manager tells some of the other JBC people that HR might be going to the Blue House. The director is super angry about it. They never knew that HR would go all the way to the Blue House.
YJ calls her husband WH and tells her that it is true. How can she be a representative as a suspect in a murder case? It doesn’t make any sense. But WH just thinks that Tae-wook has some super amount of power.
TW parks at EJ’s house. He sees her leaving and then he goes to her front door. But he sees the password lock. But it looks like he might remember the password from when he went into her home before. Maybe EJ wanted him to see the password? But anyway, TW goes inside the house! He hears something upstairs “Where are you at now….tell me.” He goes upstairs to where he hears the noise and sees the computer! the video is still playing with the black box chip. HR says that Lee Jae-young is a bad guy, as she drives off.
EJ AND HR
EJ is waiting for HR in the meeting room of JBC. She is surprised to see her and goes to bring something, but EJ just starts talking and tells HR that her husband is a really good guy, it made her feel poor/shabby/small standing next to him. HR turns and looks at EJ and EJ looks back at her. EJ wants to know if HR knew that her husband was a good person. HR wants to know what she is talking about. But EJ wonders if HR felt so good after seeing KL after 10 years, did she feel good making them all look stupid?
HR approaches her, what is she talking about?
EJ tells her that she has the black box chip. She saw what HR did in the car with her husband and what they talked about. She saw everything. She devoted ten years to KL, but she lost everything, it became nothing. But what about HR, she has everything. She still has her good husband next to her, she is still news 9 anchor. This is so unfair.
HR wants to know what EJ wants to do. EJ turns the question back around, what does HR want her to do. Does she want her to give the chip to her husband? Then she will lose him. If she removes it, then she will be a murder suspect. So how should she play it, does she want to be a woman who had an affair or does she want to be a murder suspect by not revealing it? Which one is worse?
HR says that either way is painful. But it won’t make you happy if I kneel to apologize to you, you are doing anything to survive, so my choice is that I have no choice because you are going to do whatever you want to do right?
EJ – So you won’t apologize to me?
HR – The only thing I did wrong was that I didn’t kill him myself. That is the one thing that I regret, that I didn’t kill him myself. To survive, I had to tell him things I din’t want to tell him, that memory haunts me. So if I kneel in front of you to survive, then I will kill myself because it is so shameful forever. This is not a time that I will tell you sorry. But after all these dirty things calm down, then, if I do something wrong in the future, I will go to you and apologize to you.
EJ – You are still graceful in this situation.
HR – Grace…I have no grace, I just wanted to protect my pride (I don’t’ even have pride?)
HR tries to get herself together and she leaves the conference room, but she almost collapses on the floor. She holds herself up and tries not to completely fall. EJ is also crying and quietly raging in the conference room.
Meanwhile, TW has watched the entire CCTV at EJ’s home. He bows his head but then he looks up in anger. He starts to breathe hard and look around.
JW is looking for HR, where is she? But then GS comes out and JW hides the photos from him. But GS is about to take them from her, he does. But the HR comes up and takes them from GS. She looks at the photos, this is good enough evidence. GS wants to know if she will put it in the news without his permission and she pretty much says that she will. He walks over to HR’s desk and tells her to just leave quietly. But HR tells him that this is why she wants to go up because a lot of people want to cut the truth for their own good. But she is that B that will do anything for herself, but she never negotiated with money or power, she protected news 9 like that. She never yielded to money or power. She won’t break this at the last moment because that would mean that everything she has done up to this point makes her nothing.
But GS tells her that she will get hurt when she goes up there. But HR stands firm, she says that this might be her last night on the news and her sunbae, GS, shouldn’t block her. GS sighs, it looks like he really cares about HR.
The detective meets with EJ, he is surprised that she called him. EJ says that someone called her husband that night, he went out after the phone call and then he got into the accident. KJ asks who called and EJ says that it was a woman, she thinks that it was HR. EJ is kind of tearing up, but the tears haven’t dropped yet.
GS gets a call. The VP is asking him about the news 9 news, should he worry about it? GS tells him that he shouldn’t have to worry about it, he cut out all that he could. Then we see the VP talking to some other suits, they say that they don’t think HR would make a huge amount of trouble before this important life change.
But GS knows different. he looks at HR about to give the news and gives her a signal to just go with it. He takes a deep breath as HR smiles.
Cut tot he detective telling WH that EJ said HR is the last person that KL talked to. They need a search warrant. WH turns back to his boss’s office.
HR is about to go on air and the. Manager and his colleague are talking about her before she goes on. they are talking about HR becoming a Blue House person. Then it is on air time. JW is watching and HR gives her a smile and a nod
VO – There is only one thing that I can choose, releasing my news.
HR – Hello, this is news nine.
CUT TO TW
TW wakes up startled. Then he opens the computer again, but he can’t watch. He turns back to the screen just as we see EJ coming back home. EJ gets out of the car and goes to her front door. She goes inside.
EJ goes inside her home. She takes off her shoes and is about to set her purse on the table. But then she looks upstairs, something is wrong perhaps? She goes upstairs and slowly walks to the office, she sees the computer still on and the chip is still in the computer. TW is not there. EJ closes the computer and we cut to HR on the news.
JW and HR are both breaking this news story about the building collapsing. A steel company and a construction company are both involved in buildings collapsing. They make all of this trouble, but they still apply for new work. they take people’s jobs and they take resources.
The rich lawyer gets a call, turn on JBC news. He turns it on in his car as they are driving.
Then we see TW driving as well. He is stoic. But he also gets a phone call from the law firm, he doesn’t take it.
Back to the news, a picture has come out. JW has the picture and starts to explain it to HR. There are 3 people in the picture. HR wants to know who they are and JW breaks it down. One is a congressman, (he is in the VP office right now) whenever a big issue happened, the secretary of state would fix it? JW starts to talk about all the ties between these three men. HR tells her to investigate it some more and report on it tomorrow. Good job, Han Ji-won.
Meanwhile, the phone is busy ringing in GS’s office. But he doesn’t pick it up.
Cut to prosecutor WH talking on the phone. He says that he will do a good job. They hang up and then WH calls the detective. He tells him that he is finally in charge of the Kevin Lee case now.
At the same time, HR closes out news 9. She doesn’t leave right away though, she takes a moment to sit there and looks up at her boss. But he is gone.
TW is waiting outside JBC in his car. He still has the flowers in his car. Meanwhile, HR leaves the newsroom. But she pauses and turns back around. She walks up to the news stage and tells it that it did a good job and it should tell her that she did a good job as well. But then all of the lights turn on and everyone in the news team runs out with Champaign. They all toast to her and tell her that she did a good job and she should stay, no she should leave, hahaha. The manager is also happy and pours a drink for her. HR thanks them and tells them that she is not all done, she will be on the table until this week and they will still show the steel company news, right Ji-won? Everyone cheers and then the director, GS comes in. They all toast to a happy future with their reporting team without HR! HR laughs and they all toast.
But we cut to a slow-mo of the detectives walking into their party. They ask for HR and everyone stops and looks at them. KJ and SJ come up and tell HR that they are arresting her as the prime suspect in the KL case. All the news team are startled as KJ handcuffs HR.
Cut to evil EJ playing the Bob Dylan song and sitting at home…
TW is outside in his car with the flowers…
And HR is being handcuffed.
KJ – Kevin Lee is Killed, Ko Hae-ran is the prime suspect
HR – Show me the evidence!
Police – We are seizing all the evidence for the Ko Hae-ran case
Manager – You are suppressing the media
TW – It is a trap (I am trapped), so what should I do?
GS – We show facts and the viewers will decide. Don’t show anything that is not a fact
VO – If someone committed a crime, then they should get punished
HR – They are just bluffing to get a hold of me
VO – If you say nothing happened, does that mean that nothing happened? (Or if you say no, does that mean no?)
EJ – That night that those two, that B and that A-hole
TW – I love Hae-ran, I love that woman!

hello! justamom from Soompi here. Watching live with you guys tonight!
Ugh, I can’t seem to find a livestream for JTBC. Help!
Check Soompi forums! Someone might be able to DM you.
I streamed last night at aqstream but I guess my connection weren’t that stable. Now, I’m trying still not working 🙁
Yes I use aqstream too but it’s not working for JTBC 🙁
Whoo hoo!!!!! Yay!
Misty team are here, captain! Hahahaha
And you are welcome!
Omg thank you soo much for doing this!!! I appreciate your efforts!!! 진심으로 감사합니다 💓💓
Thanks for he live recap chingu’s . Kamsahamnida
Refreshing frantically here. Dun-dung! Myung Woo is the best!
HE IS THE BEST.
I just watched the scene between Eun Joo and Tae Wook on Youtube. My heart was in my throat! Superbly acted and directed, so much meaning conveyed through subtle facial expressions. Eun Joo lost her cool and I think Tae Wook somehow got a sense that Eun Joo’s intentions were probably not so pure…
I wonder so much about what TW thinks about EJ. That is the biggest mystery to me. Maybe the chivalrous part of him wants to help her, but the husband part (and the logical part) wants to stay away from her.
Omo! Now Taewook knows everything too!
I thought TW saw everything in his car when he followed HR except their conversations. I’m not sure why he was in so much agony in this episode.
I believe in the preview, he’s crying while watching the video.
Maybe he just hoped that KL and HR were just talking in the car. But now he sees the actual footage…poor baby.
Not “everything”! The USB (from HR’s car black box), until now, shows only two items: The conversation before kissing (implying HR does not love TW, just “need” him only) and the kissing. I don’t think their meeting ended right there. HR came to the meeting (with Kevin) angrily. I guess that she wanted to confront Kevin and to strike a deal with him (of destroying the Thailand pics and terminating all contacts) … Therefore, we don’t know yet the complete content of the USB.
I wonder how TW would still handle to keep his promise to HR, despite watching the footage from the dashcam/blackbox? Would he be still be able to stand by HR’s side?
Wow, I hadn’t thought of that. I wonder if that promise weighs heavily on him.
OMG! I’m exploding! Can’t take it anymore! I feel ya, my heart’s racing fast and I’m just reading your recap!
Me too. This show does a great job of greeting me invested.
#8 taking a long time…sounds explosive!
LOl! You know you are going to get a lot of writing when it takes awhile to show up!
Deep breaths. Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
HOW AM I GOING TO MAKE IT TILL FRIDAY??
I know!!!!!! That ending just about killed me. At least they gave us the preview right away!
Omo!! Heol?? eotteokhae?? I’m just reading the last part of the recap and imagining it, I cannot 😳🤭 Hye-Ran-ah ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Although I expected this already. Look how EJ is being manipulative at this episode is just speechless. And we need to wait for another week for episode 9 😭😭
I seriously cannot believe the change in EJ. I can only assume that there must be more on that tape than just kissing, right? I mean the kissing is enough to drive you crazy and she just had a traumatic event. But I feel like a normal person would have just gotten the heck out of Korea.
There’s definitely more to it, more from the past we haven’t heard. Why did Eun Joo and Hye Ran fall apart back then? When Eun Joo said they were good friends, was she lying? Has she been lying since the start of the show?
Jeon Hye Jin is amazing. I already love Lee Seun Gyun so wow, wow. What a power acting couple.
One week ago, I wouldn’t have thought EJ was lying, but now I think she must have been lying. Or maybe they had a falling out. Shoot, now I think EJ might have been in on trapping HR in the room with that man to begin with.
OMG, they are a super power acting couple. I hope his show does well in a few weeks
Just how far will EJ go? I think she will try to bring HR down as far as she can. But the conference scene shows us that HR isn’t bowing to anyone (except her mother-in-law).
HR in handcuffs!! Her poor tiny wrists. I have no words although to be honest, I did see this coming eventually but I thought it would be a tad later. However, there are only 16 Episodes I guess things cannot drag on for too long. A thousand thanks for another amazing live recaps.
You’re welcome Tobi! 🙂 You are way ahead of me i your thoughts. For some reason I thought HR would just go straight to court but that she wouldn’t be handcuffed and dragged out somewhere!
I had a feeling HR had a very traumatic tragic past which helped shape her character, her determination to fight to the death, never back down.
I love how they showed that scene! They didn’t milk it for all the emotions they could pull from us, which made me pay attention to it a lot more. I am still super curious about what happened which is what I think the writer/production wants.
I thought the party scene was the only truly happy moment in this TV show without any internal intention. Then the party was crashed at the end!
I thought it was such a happy moment too! It felt like the JBC team was really coming together and acknowledging that they might hate each other sometimes but at least they are all a team.
Hopefully that one moment kind of gives us an insight into the minds of JBC and how they will fight for the truth to come out.
OMG!!!!!!!!!! TW saw the video.. I know it will difficult for him to forgive HR. But I just hope he will forgive her. Still no hint for the real murderer right?
No hint yet! I mean, I guess it could still be HR? I just don’t think that it is her. So the real murderer is still out there somewhere.
The story is showing 3 men in hr’s life… we still dont know if hwani steel gang up together to kill KL or eun joo who is after the insurance or TW who is obsessively in love with HR to kill the other guy. I hope that TW cried not because he felt cheated on but only bec he realized that KL was the ex of HR and that he understood that HR is being threatened by KL.. super puzzling
He still was waiting for her with the flowers, so that makes me think that his mind is more on what you said! Perhaps realizing that HR was KL’s ex was a big shock. he also saw the complete video, so he should have seen her wipe off the kiss and look disgusted. It also proves that she didn’t kill Kevin Lee, too!
I forgot about this… But who is the one that call Kevin Lee that night? Jiwon right?
I don’t know, I forgot about it as well. I thought the manager called KL.
I thought it was HR?
For a moment, I felt that HR and TW were over (although, it’s not likely), but the last scene in the preview just relieved every thought in that direction. Phew! Man, what an intense episode! Thank you so much for your effort in recapping this! Amazing job! So many thumbs up!
I thought TW might be laughing for a moment when he looked at the video. I was about to be all like, whaaaaaat, we have psycho TW now, too?
I think the murderer is from Hansteel company.
I had not thought of that! But it makes sense, especially with all the focus that is given to that company.
The web is broaden and involve more people at higher level: the Vice director, the steel company, the politicians. I have the theory that the second part of the series, HR and TW and event MW will fight against all though guys for justice.
There’s onlyone word that describes this:pretzel 😂
Lol, so many twists and turns! It is like a pretzel.

The shock and pain that TW endured during the brooch “incident” (in Thailand) is not as profound and brutal as when he saw what’s happening in the car’s black box USB. Indeed, after coming back to Seoul and sharing their feelings with each other, TW had been able to regain his trust and his love toward his wife HR. Then only ONE WEEK later, what happened in the USB clearly showed to TW that HR is just a blatant liar, playing with him and betraying him to supposedly renew her love to Kelvin.
– How much this heart broken betrayal would impact their husband/wife and lawyer/clientele relationship? What credibility would she still have?
– What kind of action/behavior HR would do to clear the misunderstanding and regain TW’s love and trust? Only and unless she become Mother Teresa!
– While digging into HR past, the prosecutor may discover her committing a crime (first degree murder). How could TW mount a defense for such a precedence?
– Then, worst, if I am the writer, I shall thow in an incident in which TW see HR and her puppy love MW are (again) embracing/kissing?
If the writer could solve these intricacies realistically and logically, then this Kdrama should be nominated for the Oscar!
Poor HR from Episode 8 the way her school uniform was messed up I think someone was trying to attack her. What a sad story and the deep bond between the two friends — to sacrifice himself. Could he be her brother!! I love this drama so much.
Just want to say a huge thank you for your live recaps! I love your website!
I was shocked that Hye-ran was arrested like on what grounds but then maybe she did actually call him last and they checked it but we’ll see next episode probably. I’m guessing that Kang Yool will not help them anymore because Hye-ran called out Hanil Steel during News Nine hence the fast arrest warrant so basically I think they’re on their own now!
I can’t believe that Tae-wook found out!! Arghhh! I thought he might have guessed something happened that night but actually seeing the evidence probably pushed him over! The preview is lulling me till next Friday but I cannot wait that longgg!!!! WHY IS MISTY SOOOO GOOD?!
Thank you so much Bluey 🙂
I think Hanil Steel might have something to do with that arrest warrant as well. Maybe all the top people from the Gold club called a lot of things in at the last minute and that is how the arrest warrant could be given so quickly.
Hae-ran is so on her own and she is up against all the elites of Korea! I have a feeling that a lot of bad news is going to come out about her. Hopefully her news 9 team can cut to the truth. News 9 and Tae-wook are the only ones who will have her back.
Could you tell me what TW said in ep preview?Thanks
Hi TN, we have the episode preview translated at the top under Preview. TW says that he is trapped or it is a trap and then at the end he says that he loves Hae-ran.
Thank you, V!
Watch out, HMW! Just got out of prison and you already committed 3 “crimes”: KIDNNAPPING (KL’s Manager), ROBBERY (the USB containing Thailand pics from that Manager), and illegal EAVESDROPPING (TW’s Law office)
There are so many angles to this Murder Mystery. But for now I am trying to focus on how the broach ended up in the car.
I have even gone to the land of Ridiculous, where is it possible Kevin Lee did not actually die!! The more one thinks about the possibilities the more crazy one can get. Haha. What a great and fun drama to watch.
I FEEL FOR HYERAN, TAEWOOK, AND EUNJOO (AND MYUNGWOO??) Honestly the only true villain in this is that jerk Kevin Lee. But he’s dead so I’ll just leave it there. As for Hyeran, I just watched the subbed version on her conversation with Eunjoo. Hyeran said she only said what she said in the car with KL (that she loved him and not her husband), and made out because she had to do something to appease him at that moment. And somehow, I believe this. A part of me has come to have such great trust in Hyeran as a person. I believe that she is innocent through and through, and that she truly loves and appreciates Taewook.
The scene that Taewook cried when seeing the video. POOR GUY! What a saint! The way he loves his wife and trusts her…… Honestly what a saint. I love him so much. Please don’t make him suffer.
As for Eun Joo, I also understand where she’s coming from. Another very pitiful character. It’s easy to dislike her for her sudden change of character but think about all the crazy shit she went through. I would have flipped out and strangled someone.
Another variable, Myungwoo. I hope he truly loves and supports HR until this day, and continues to stand by her and Taewook. Please continue to be a great supporter! We don’t have enough of that going around!
I love this comment! I feel like the only true villain is Kevin Lee as well, though EJ is moving up on my villain list, depending on if her and Hae-ran were really friends or not in the past. But I can see how her recent circumstances can make her act out of character.
TW is my little puppy dog baby that I want to wrap in a warm blanket and feed biscuits to.
i’m so going to marathon watch Misty as well as Should we kiss first once Hwayugi is officially done. LOL I don’t think I can have the energy to chase after all three. Plus Queen of Mysteries is back for a second season and also possibly have a scaredy cat look at Children of a Lesser God (hey, I thought I saw something flash by in the hall windows of a nearby school near midnight last night, so I’m not too keen on watching anything that’ll give me nightmares -_-)
I agree with @Tobi (https://www.bah-doo.com/misty-live-recap-episode-8/#comment-1931) about the possible assault, so HR might have committed manslaughter in self defence. Doubt that MW is her brother though, might have been her first love, which further complicates things. And could TW know something about the past seeing as MW is working with him?
Oh my goodness, you should marathon Misty. I mean, you do have a lot of dramas to watch, but Misty is too good to miss. Plus it’s fun to get in on the discussions! 🙂
I can only limit myself one Drama at a time as I am also rewatching all Episodes of Misty shown when so far whenever time permits. I particularly enjoy the Thailand on location scenes it is so beautiful there and so are TW and bad boy Kevin Lee!!!
And who does HR love the most?? Not Kevin Lee that’s for sure. So her forever loyal (so far) husband or Mr Mystery who clearly went to prison for HR. Cannot wait for new Episodes and live Recaps.
Hmmm! Interesting but weird question (“who does HR love the most?”). How can we “measure” and “compare” Love? However, for the sake of understanding their behavior in this misty drama, let me try to answer by breaking down 3 lovers of MR (KL, MW and TW) into 2 categories, then “reciprocating” them:
1- At the actual time when they first loved each other:
– At the age of 20 something, physically and emotionally the prime time in the life of a woman, HR therefore must love KL the MOST. The same with KL, among all the women he “conquered”, he must love HR the MOST. That’s why when they meet again, her past love immediately “reconnected” and driving her to commit the most stupid and destructive act of cheating TW.
– At the age of high school, HR and MW must have a very romantic and pure puppet love. HR may love MW the SECOND, and feeling more grateful (for 19 yrs of sacrifice) than loving him. MW, on the other hand, considers HR not only as his first lover but also the ONLY lover he ever got (because he did not have the chance to meet other girls). His love to HR was platonic, obsessive and even pathological! So intense and blind that he’ll do anything (even kidnapping and illegal eavesdropping) to destroy whoever hurt HR.
– At the age of probably early 30 (when HR married TW), already enduring many hardships, coupling with the burning desire of success in life, her love to TW, as she clearly stated, was just for … convenience. A “business card”, a stepping stone for her career. HR did not love TW , she just liked TW as a nice and efficient partner. TW, meanwhile, was gambling that one day, he can “convert” HR to become a perfect lover/wife.
2- At the time of the end of Episode 8:
– KL is dead. Her love with KL is totally erased of her memory.
– HR is burning to meet MW. Their reunion might create some “headaches” and “heartaches” for TW, depending on the state of mind of MW and behavior of HR.
– HR starts to have some plan to share a happy future with her husband TW. That’s all for now. As far as love, No! They don’t even share the same bedroom…
Wow, this analysis is so great. I never thought about looking at it from the 3 men in HR’s life. I also think we need to throw GS into that list. He has been in her life for her entire career and kind of seems like part caring sunbae and part fatherly. I wonder how TW feels about GS? I doubt the drama will go that deeply into it though 🙂
But HR did not cheat on TW. Her temporary lapse of judgement in Thailand was most probably due to 7 years of sexless marriage with TW. To HR Kevin was her friend’s husband. She has no interest in him. It was Kevin who actively pursued HR and tried to drive wedge between HR and TW.
That very amazing analysis— I never thought all three guys are at different stages of HR life. Who by the way has a tough one even though she has clearly achieved professional success— a mother in law who basically pounding at her door telling her to give them grand children and then her relationship with her own mother.. I am not sure if they were even close. I am rooting for her for sure.
I have watched some dramas over the years where the murderer is someone least suspected or a character not even known to viewers. The writing so far for Misty is simply amazing. And I expect this excellence quality to continue and also I enjoy The fabulous hair the make up the clothes etc etc and of course the superb Acting Cast. What a Treat for fans!!
If Kevin Lee murder was commuted by professionals then people with power and influence could be behind it. Can we rule out TW parents? Why would they do anything that would drag their only son into such scandals.
The parents would be a super big surprise, but I won’t rule them out. Maybe that corrupt company had something to do with it.
Theres a preview in kimnamjoo instgram fan page.. hope somebody can translate.. looking forward to tomorrows episode.. 🙇♀️🤗🤗
