The Episode Review

Se-hee’s journey through the episode was so touching and the producers were able to show how the true love of a person can change an unpopular and rude individual like Gyu-tae. The way that Tae-Sik is able to see through the people around him is enough to make me believe that he knows the dynamics between Yeon-Joo and Gyro-re.

I feel terribly sorry for Dr. Yang as a person the man he is. Dr. Yang seems to be a rational person stuck between the irrational empaths who are willing to do everything to make the wishes of dying people come true. Dr. Yang is determined to be realistic and ease the pain of his patients, however, the doctor is not aware that happiness can be a part of the pain.

Team Genie recognizes that even though they are suffering, patients desire to be content, even if it’s just for a moment. When Se-hee was reunited with her family and her parents, and finally achieved her dream of becoming a singer, the actor suffered more pain than normal. But, her joy was the only thing that could overcome the pain. Se-hee’s role as an example of a part of Team Genie Gyeo-re may finally be able to overcome the immense pain in his life.
