Poong the Joseon Psychiatrist: Episodes 3-4
As our new entrants settle into the clinic, we welcome an aged member of the family members and get a peek into their mentor’s backstory. Threat also lurks around our hero, simply because even however he has still left his past behind, the folks in his past are not willing to let go of him.
EPISODES 3-4 WEECAP
Rejoining our clinic loved ones this week is their prepare dinner, NAM-HEE (Yeon Bora) whose existence adds one more spark to the dynamics of the relatives. With her arrival also comes a murder, and an enthusiastic Eun-woo goes with Poong (who’s scared of corpses, lol) to inspect the human body. The suspect is a killer dubbed Gumiho by the villagers, but Gumiho was supposedly arrested a yr ago. Eun-woo notices the slicing on the human body is various from Gumiho’s signature slice, and discusses her conclusions with her father, the district governor. But they are interrupted by the arrival of Shin-woo, the royal inspector from Hanyang (and her father’s old student).
Compared with what you’d hope from an outdated college student, Shin-woo is very formal, and a bit condescending in the direction of the district governor for arresting the erroneous gentleman. And if which is not adequate to roll our eyes at him, we also master he’s the adopted son of the 2nd point out councilor and was despatched by his father in lookup of Poong. Shin-woo entrusts this task to the high and mighty COMMANDER IM (Kim Hyung-mook), but at the clinic, Commander Im cannot discover an acupuncturist Yoo Se-yeob — just a Poong who can not conduct acupuncture. Lol.
One of the clinic’s patients sleepwalks to the scene of a next murder, and with all the proof pointing to her, she is arrested as Gumiho. To prove she just has a sleepwalking problem and is not a assassin, Poong and Ji-han acquire Shin-woo to path after the lady, who sleepwalks out of her mobile into the mountains. She collapses beside a grave and has to be taken back again into detention, but Ji-han manages to persuade Shin-woo to allow for him to go to her every day for some cure.
On 1 of these visits, the woman tells them she saw a goblin shoot a star down from a tree and her words and phrases really don’t make any perception until eventually Eun-woo and Poong go again to the crime scene, and Eun-woo deduces that the victims were shot by an arrow from the tree. Legitimate to her suspicion, Eun-woo digs out a damaged piece of arrow from a single of the bodies, proving that an arrow was the main induce of loss of life and the Gumiho-like minimize was just a include up.
To productively body the sleepwalking girl, the killer would need to have to have regarded her condition. As a result Jang-goon – many thanks to his amazingly retentive memory – digs out the information of the people who frequented the clinic the day the sleepwalking woman was loudly diagnosed, and all roads guide to… Eun-woo’s brother-in-legislation! Wow! Evidently, he’s doing work in cahoots with Commander Im to illegally hunt exceptional animals in the mountains, and experienced to silence the victims who have been searching into the subject.
With her husband’s memorial coming up, Eun-woo returns to her in-laws, but her motive is to look for for proof to establish her brother-in-law’s guilt. He catches her snooping all over and attempts to strangle her, unconsciously revealing the place the murder weapon is, and Shin-woo enters to arrest him. His mom blames Eun-woo for ruining the two her sons, but Poong suggests that centered on the clinic’s documents, Eun-woo’s spouse experienced abdomen cancer and died since his mother relied on talismans somewhat than acquiring him suitable treatment. Eun-woo then pays her very last respects to her spouse and cuts off a piece of her hanbok, signifying the ties she has minimize with his loved ones. Certainly!!
Eun-woo’s desire to assistance people like Poong does, tends to make him motivate her to join them in the clinic and analyze drugs. Poong also drops the formal deal with of “my lady” and phone calls her by her first title: Eun-woo. Just about like a rebirth from living below societal dictates to living for herself. Awww. I find it actually sweet how Poong often tries his very best to carry solace to persons. 1st to the sleepwalking lady, for whom he designed a doll as a alternative for the one particular created by her mom (whose grave she sleepwalks to), and now to Eun-woo. As Eun-woo stated, he may not have been able to use acupuncture to heal the lady, but he was ready to use the needle (from stitching the doll) to enable her. Indeed, what makes a health care provider is not his tools, but his heart in the direction of his patients.
Back again in Hanyang, a single of the king’s court females dies, significantly from the identical ailment as the late king. But in advance of her demise, she tells the king about a court woman included in the late king’s dying. The court docket girl in problem is the witness to Poong’s father’s assassination, and is presently on the operate from the 2nd condition councilor. The assassin, who now appears to be Shin-woo, asks Commander Im if the new health practitioner (Poong) could be Se-yeob, and Commander Im states no. But Im has by now pieced Poong’s identification with each other, and is aware he is Se-yeob. He reveals this to Poong and attempts to recruit him to his facet, but Poong turns him down.
Although Poong has identified gratification in dealing with the typical folks, Man-bok bemoans his master’s destiny and thinks that if Poong didn’t have hand tremors and could nonetheless complete acupuncture, he may well have experienced a shot at currently being referred to as again to the health care workplace. The clinic then receives a individual who suffers from hand tremors — a noble lady, introduced in by her fiancé who appears to be the most caring guy in the world. But on a closer glance, he’s borderline obsessive – not allowing for Poong to take the lady’s pulse because he’s a person, and executing all the chatting on her behalf.
Man-bok overhears Poong’s prescription for the tremors (meat and some herbs) and complains that his grasp isn’t remedied because the clinic doesn’t give them any meat. Heh. A discouraged Ib-bun tells him to go capture some meat himself and Man-bok goes to catch a rabbit. Poong refuses to consume the cute rabbit, lol, so Man-bok returns to the mountains to lookup for herbs instead. There, he sees the noble lady and her manservant on the operate, but he assumes the servant is a risk to the woman and confronts him. He’s knocked out and when he will come to, he is beside the now-useless servant and arrested for the murder. Yikes!
To crystal clear Guy-bok’s name, Poong visits the noble girl with Eun-woo – who now dons colourful outfits and wears her hair down like a solitary lady as opposed to the widow’s whites and hair in a bun type of married females – but her fiancé insists that she was at property the total working day. Listening to his sarcastic remarks about how he’d pay back a fortune if there was a female physician to look at the lady’s pulse, Eun-woo decides to do just that. But first, she has to actually find out the locale of all the pulse details. Thankfully, Poong is a good trainer and she’s a quick learner.
With a a few-working day day countdown to Man-bok’s execution, Poong and Eun-woo sneak back into the lady’s home and Eun-woo is lastly able to choose her pulse. They influence the woman to accompany them to the servant’s grave (dug by Poong, as the very poor person was just remaining to rot absent, unburied), and we master the servant and the woman turned pals as they grew up collectively. She claims to confess to his murder the next working day. But our clinic family members doesn’t consider she did it and tries to figure out who the killer is on their have.
Poong and Eun-woo understand that the fiancé is the only person who stated that the servant was strangled (info they know, but was kept from the persons who believe he died from getting stabbed), and they’re able to deduce that the fiancé is the killer. Sadly, he kidnaps the woman, and takes her with him on the operate.
Immediately after browsing for hours, they listen to that the fiancé is headed to the docks in the hopes of having on a ship, but it is almost time for Male-bok’s execution. Poong begs Shin-woo for a horse and constables to accompany him to the docks in order to convey again the killer, and Shin-woo places his foot down at making use of the government’s means for personal motives. But with Poong on his knees and Shin-woo’s flashback to how Poong buried the servant, Shin-woo relents and presents the horse. He tells them the execution will carry on as planned if they never return before then with the killer.
As Poong and Eun-woo ride to the docks, Man-bok is led to the execution ground, where Shin-woo stands with a letter in his hands. We really do not know the whole content of the letter, but there is a identify composed on it: Yoo Se-yeob! Eek! Does he know now? If so, that didn’t consider as substantially time as I considered. But I suppose I need to be glad that the drama is not dragging out this plotline. I anticipated to flat out dislike Shin-woo, but surprisingly, I really do not. He’s agency with his ruling as an formal, but he’s also inclined to give the accused the gain of question as we observed in the sleepwalking circumstance and with Male-bok. Of course, there’s the make any difference of him getting the assassin, and there is no justification for that, but his crush on Eun-woo aside, I’d like to feel that there are far more layers to his character beneath the chilly exterior.
Another layered character is Ji-han, whom we understand additional about this week. Underneath his brash and revenue-loving exterior is a Robin Hood dedicated to charging the abundant a premium for his services in purchase to take care of the popular people today for subsequent to practically nothing as expenses. And just like Poong, he was as soon as a highly regarded doctor at the health care place of work right until he was fired. He also shed his spouse whilst making an attempt to treat her, and I’m positive that need to have crushed him. It now helps make perception as to why he understands Poong so perfectly, and is determined to aid him.
It was definitely touching to see our clinic family pool their capabilities to preserve Guy-bok — from Nam-hee distracting the servants in the noble lady’s household with her cooking, to Ib-bun coming up with a sketch of the fiancé (her only talent, lol) thanks to Jang-goon’s memory. There’s also Ji-han supplying Poong and Eun-woo tips in their Operation Conserve Gentleman-bok plans, and even if it was just chasing Commander Im out of the clinic with her broom, Grandmother also contributed to the lead to.
The clinic proves that it’s a place of therapeutic not just for many others, but also for its occupants who despite getting of unique social classes, have occur together to grow to be a exclusive loved ones of their very own. And I know that regardless of whatever circumstance may well come their way, as extensive as they stick with each other, they can pull as a result of.
