I Remember You Episode 8 Recap

Woohoo more physical tension between Ji Ahn and Hyun, I can’t wait for them to be an official couple!! Other than fanservice, this episode sees a confirmation of one key character – Min is Attorney Jung.

As seen from previous episode, Jung purposely leaves a few groceries in his car.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h07m25s255 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h07m35s94

Ji Ahn gets pushed into her house by Burly Guy while Hyun ponders over the two cards he has received. One was placed when Prosecutor Shin disappears.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h07m48s227 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h07m51s253

He looks at the other card and recalls the stalker at the amusement park. “No way…” I’m guessing that the car is hint to Ji Ahn’s surname.

Ji Ahn fights well with lots of girl power. She’s not kidding when she says that she has learnt martial arts before, as she holds off the guy by defending herself and piercing the guy with a pen with any opportunity she has.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h07m59s83 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m22s60

Hyun calls her phone but she can’t pick up, so Hyun calls Kang instead.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m27s108 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m31s147

Upon hearing that Kang isn’t with Ji Ahn, Hyun hangs up, leaving Kang worried.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m35s182 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m38s216

Jung ponders coldly as to whether he should let Ji Ahn live.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m47s52 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m49s73

As Ji Ahn throws her blanket on the guy and kicks him, Jung appears in her doorway and starts launching oranges at the guy.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m50s82 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h08m53s107

Which is quite funny hahaha.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m00s178 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m10s21

Jung pretends to fight the guy but whispers in the guy’s ear, “Run.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m18s103 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m24s159

Hyun reaches the house and happens to see Burly guy. He gives chase but the guy runs off. Jung asks with concern if she’s okay and helps her up.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m24s159 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m25s171

Hyun runs into the house and asks worriedly, “What happened?”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m27s193 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m35s13

Ji Ahn explains that Jung saved her life, and semi-collapses as she walks towards Hyun.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m40s72 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m42s84

Hyun catches her in his arms, while Jung holds her arms. The two men scrutinise each other.

Thankfully, Ji Ahn didn’t break any bones and only has a minor concussion. Hyun asks for an explanation from Jung and doesn’t believe that three coincidences could happen (coincidentally meet in the mart, Ji Ahn’s car coincidentally breaks down, and that she coincidentally leaves groceries behind). Jung smokes that it could be destiny since he has always wanted to get to know Ji Ahn and Hyun better. “Reason?”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m50s169 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m54s206

Jung replies that there needs to be no reason. Just like how Hyun explains that there are just random flowers you get attracted to while hiking.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h09m55s219 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m05s64

Hyun guesses correctly that this is Yang’s doing but Jung pretends that it’s the first time he’s hearing this.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m12s128 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m14s149 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m15s160 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m20s215

Ji Ahn sleeps soundly and her head almost rolls off the bed, but Hyun catches her. She wakes up and seems to be a little sad at her injuries, “When I catch you, you are dead.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m25s8 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m32s79

Hyun keeps staring at her and consoles her that it’s only natural to be shaken up after a beating like that.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m48s239 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m53s33 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m55s48 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m56s61

Ji Ahn asks, “Don’t you think it’s etiquette not to stare so much?” and Hyun turns away, amused.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h10m57s71 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m13s225

She asks about Jung and Hyun answers curtly, “He left.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m07s171 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m11s213

“He did? I didn’t even thank him properly.” “You already did at your house.” “That’s not enough.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m12s216 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m13s225

“It’s not lacking. It’s sufficient.”

While we all hope/know that Hyun could be subconsciously jealous hohoho, Ji Ahn tells Hyun she understands his uneasy feelings towards Jung but Jung was sincerely worried about her. Hahaha, Hyun doesn’t like this topic and asks her if she’s staying longer. Ji Ahn doesn’t want to be a fake patient since she is all fine now and tries to get up but her back hurts.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m14s236 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m15s246

“Am I really okay? My back is gone.” “That can happen when you sleep too long.” Ji Ahn stares at him, “I don’t think that is the case.”

Hahaha the couple amuses me.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h11m43s19  vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m02s212 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m36s37  vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m37s46

Ji Ahn returns home, only to find her door all taped up with police tape. After being prompted by Hyun, she remembers that she was the one who had taped up her entire door, much to Hyun’s and Jung’s amusement.

She packs her stuff but realises that she can’t stay with her aunt because she doesn’t want the Burly Guy to find her at her aunt’s place. She doesn’t want to call for protective custody and she will only call in the forensics team the next day. For now, she will sleep at the police station.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m45s129 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m47s145

Hyun hesitates after recalling that this could be Director Yang’s doing, “If you have no place to go…” “What?” “….Never mind.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h12m54s214 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m02s37

He drives her to the station, but tells her to put her seatbelt on again.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m04s60 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m07s89 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m06s75 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m05s67

When she looks at him, stunned, he simply leans over and helps her buckle the belt. WOOHOO.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m14s157 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m17s185

He mutters, “It’s annoying.” He tells Ji Ahn that he will let her be in his debt.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m25s16 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m30s61

When Ji Ahn realises that he’s letting her stay in his house, she protests that he’s actually repaying his debt because she hid him when he was a murder suspect. Hyun threatens to send her back to the headquarters and she shuts up haha.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m33s96 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m41s169

Hyun directs her to the bathroom, but she heads there with no difficulties, “Don’t worry, I know this place very well.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m44s200 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m45s217

Hyun cautions her to not take anything out of the assigned space and she answers obediently.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m48s241 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m49s250 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m52s24 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h13m51s16

At night, Ji Ahn gets woken up by noises. She realises the sounds are actually coming from Hyun, who is having a nightmare. In his nightmare, he keeps chasing after Min, who is trapped in a moving car.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m00s106 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m12s224

She tries to wake him up, but to no avail.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m26s116 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m23s82

So she sits on his desk and touches his hand gently.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m38s227 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m40s253 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m41s6 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m42s19

Hyun holds her hand tightly and doesn’t let go. Awww, seeing him all huddled up like this makes me feel sad for him.

In the morning, Ji Ahn wakes up and finds Hyun in the kitchen. She asks if he’s alright, and he replies, “Would you be alright?” She is a little worried, “It’s obvious that you are not alright.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m48s77 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m56s153

Hyun turns, “Of course. Don’t get out of the assigned space. Don’t touch anything unless it’s assigned to you. I definitely warned you. Why did you crawl into my room to sleep?”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h14m58s177 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m01s201

“Do you know what’s the first thing I saw when I woke up?”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m03s225 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m05s250 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m07s7 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m08s15 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m10s38 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m10s43

“Your face. My…it scared me senseless. You do that one more time and I will kick you out.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m11s53 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m13s69 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m15s91 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m24s183


Ji Ahn gets a call from Kang, who is concerned about her since he couldn’t get through to Ji Ahn and Hyun the previous night, and her house has turned into a crime scene. She gets chided in the station for not having reported her assault straight away. Kang offers his house for her to stay, but adds in that he lives with his father, the Deputy Chief. Myung Woo laughs that they all cannot stand being in the same room as the chief but quickly shuts up when he turns up.

Jung reveals on a phonecall to someone that he has changed his mind (about killing Ji Ahn I suppose). Think of it as a next step to getting the next person, “I’ll have fun toying with him, and that I will get rid of him. Isn’t that better for Director Yang too?”

Ji Ahn calls to meet Jung and asks him if the Burly Guy was sent by Director Yang. Jung feigns ignorance. Since she’s such a direct person, she comes out right and asks Jung if he has an interest in her.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m34s24 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m37s56

He smiles, “This is my second time, having a special interest in a specific person.” Ji Ahn asks if his first interest was his first love and he replies, “Most likely.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m41s95 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h15m48s159

Through flashbacks, we see Min replying that he liked Hyung the most and that he wanted to be like Hyung when he grows up, but Dad took Hyung away.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m01s36 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m05s78

On the night when Joon Young came to kill his dad, he climbed out of his window and hid in a car because it was raining.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m09s118 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m11s135

He fell asleep in the car and only woke up when Joon Young started the engine. He tried to escape but Joon Young locked the car and drove off.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m19s217 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m20s228 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m27s41 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m30s67

Hyun ran after his brother and Min shouted from inside the car, but Hyun disappeared after the car turned a bend.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m33s99 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m41s183vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h16m45s225 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m06s179

Turns out that he tripped and fell unconscious. Min kept crying in the car for his Hyung but ultimately quietened down and asked Joon Young what Hyung said about him. Hyung left me. He handed me to Lee Joon Young. 


Soooo Jung is confirmed to be Min! Can I call him Min from now on?

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m30s159 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m31s169

Hyun has his suspicions of Joon Ho. Given that Prosecutor Shin had told him before about how Joon Young was famous for his corpe-less murders, he asked Joon Ho how he would conduct a murder without leaving behind a corpse. Joon Ho replies that ultimately, the key is to throw the body somewhere it cannot be found. If it’s a serial murderer, then the murderer will dispose of the body in his own way, which becomes his modus operandi.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m46s67 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m55s157

Hyun gets a call from his art director friend, who tells him that a friend of his knew somebody who knew somebody that drew a sketch and asked if he knew the painting. But that sketch is very similar to the painting that Hyun gave the art director. That person is an employee at the Fake in Incheon.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m57s176 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h17m59s191

Hyun is frustrated at his long story but compliments him for the good job done.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m05s250 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m06s6

The employer at The Fake is very taken aback that someone with Hyun’s credentials will want to be work for them. He even agrees to getting low pay. Turns out that The Fake is a shipping company but Hyun doesn’t even know how to use a fork lift, much to his new supervisor’s chagrin.

He asks his supervisor many questions, which annoy the supervisor very much. When Kang calls to ask for his whereabouts, he answers that he’s doing a part time job. Haha.

As the Burly Guy wore gloves, and the car was parked in a blind spot,the team is unable to find any clues as to who the assailant was.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m22s171 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m24s185

While moving a container, Hyun notices that there’s some blood stains on a crate and smells it.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m35s43 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m37s57

He quietly and  quickly moves the crate above away and topples the crate below it, causing the crate to fall and break open. As the bloodied crate is below, he probably removes the crate above to pretend that he accidentally knocked over the bloodied crate.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m38s75 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h18m40s89

A hand falls out.

His supervisor comes running but wails when he sees the dead body. The team gets mobilised because the request is sent in directly, and they think it’s because of their power and reputation. Lol.

At the scene, the supervisor brings them to the new employee and complains about him. Myung Woo notes that this person is very similar to a rude jerk he knows.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m02s57 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m05s90

Imagine their surprise when it is indeed Hyun who is the new employee. Myung Woo mutters to his team, “Didn’t I tell you? He is a person who either instigates or interferes with murders.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m19s221 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m19s230

Hyun replies loudly, “That seems to be true.”

Hyun has actually called Joon Young onto the scene to examine the body, which was actually the company’s bookkeeper. “It looks like planned murder right?” “Putting it as a planned murder…there’s too many mistakes.” Hyun nods, “The way the person was murdered and the body’s disappearance is unprofessional.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m32s104 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m33s113\

Kang asks what he means, but the duo merely exchange a glance (probably because of their previous conversation on the modus operandi).

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h19m56s83 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m15s12

Later, Hyun stands alone at the port and recalls what he has found – a mark on the label on the crate that no other labels have. If this gets transported onto the ship, then someone on the ship will throw this labelled crate into the sea. This way, there will be no corpse.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m27s136 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m28s145

Ji Ahn suspects that he’s here because he found something to do with Lee Joon Young and demands to be let in on his findings. However, Hyun tells her that he’s not even sure what he’s looking for, “It might be better if I don’t know.”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m34s205 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m35s216

Ji Ahn reminds him that they are partners, “When will you tell me honestly?” Hyun replies with another question – what will she do when she catches Joon Young? Ji Ahn reveals that Park Dae Young had also asked her that question when she visited him in the prison.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m48s93 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m50s112

“Until you see him in front of your eyes, until that moment comes to you, you don’t what choice you will make yourself.” Hyun tells Ji Ahn that when she shares his evidence with him, he will do the same.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m58s196 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h20m59s206 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h21m01s222 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h21m02s232

He steps in and tucks a stray piece of hair behind her ear. !!!

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h21m19s148 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h21m20s159

Now it’s down to business – the team has already split up to find the crime scene. In the meantime, Hyun asks the other workers if there was any particular worker whose good relationship with the victim suddenly soured and always earned a lot of money. Because of his prompts, the workers immediately narrow down to one worker that fits the description. Seung Jo finds the crime scene. Myung Woo runs into a random worker who starts running when he asks for his name, so Myung Woo chases him and arrests him.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m03s158  vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m04s169vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m05s182 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m16s39

The team is confident that the guy will confess soon, since they have loads of evidence and the guy knows he’s pretty screwed. Seung Jo counts down from 5, and right on count 3, the guy confesses, “I killed her.” The interrogation is over pretty quickly and the team is happy for this easy, well-done job.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m22s98 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m26s134

Just as Kang and Myung Woo leave the interrogation room, Hyun enters and locks the door behind him. He turns off the surveillance such that people in the other room cannot hear him as well.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m46s78 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h23m48s101

Hyun shows the culprit a photo of the double-eyed symbol and notices that the culprit knows something about it. He promises that whatever he says will not be recorded and that he will help him get a better life in prison.

Hyun guesses, “You were only moving something right? You didn’t kill her because of rape or for your own will. You were actually moving a dead body and got caught by her. After that, you got into an argument with her and you had to kill her because you were antagonised, right?”

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m10s66 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m16s126

The culprit confesses that he doesn’t know who is behind this. It’s just that one day a call comes, and all he has to do is to move a box onto the ship, and that someone on the ship will throw it out. The boxes come once in a while, but every time, he gets a lot of money when he delivers a box. “But one day I saw what was in the box.” Is the guy smiling right now?

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m23s194 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m41s113 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m38s90 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m33s41

“At first I was shocked, but after that, sometimes I open the box to take a look. I was curious to see if there were things painted on.” Hyun shows him a photo of Prosecutor Shin and asks if that was the latest body, and the culprit nods. Oh poor guy is dead. He was quite a fascinating character!

I thought the culprit was just acting very badly because I couldn’t tell if he was smiling or grimacing, but I’ve decided that he’s smiling. He only knows the voice of the person who gave him orders.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m55s3 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h24m56s13

When Hyun asks how many crates had been delivered onto the ship, the guy tears off the bracelet on his wrist, “One bead per person. As a souvenir.” OH GROSS. Souvenir?? It’s not even a sign of repentance.


The camera switches to Jung/Min painting his usual two-headed men portrait with the symbol.

vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h25m19s246 vlcsnap-2015-07-15-12h25m32s120

He recalls his conversation with Ji Ahn, who commented that he must have really liked his first love. He smiled and replied that he saw the person from time to time, but that person didn’t even recognise him. Ji Ahn sighed and told him to approach the person first, “This is who I am and why don’t you remember me?”

He said earnestly, “No, it’s like a game to me.” Remember Me.

Min slowly puts down his brush.


The detectives are damn pissed and demand to know what Hyun asked the culprit. Hyun replies that he didn’t know the recorders were off and that he merely asked if the guy had anything to add to his original statement.

As he walks off, he exchanges a glance with Ji Ahn.

Jung comes to the headquarters because his client is with the team right next to the Special Team and the guy happens to be brought past him.

Cues music with tension, as the guy stops after hearing Jung’s voice. Remember? He only knows the voice of the person who gives him orders.

He definitely recognises it as he turns around but hastily turns back in fear as Jung turns his head.

Hyun collects the beads and lets it falls.

The sheer number of people killed.


-the end-

Oh man, I was really hoping for a nice reunion between Min and Hyun, but I guess that foreshadowing of a evil Min was there from the start. I like the dramatic falling of the beads, which I interpret as Hyun’s dismay that his brother could have possibly killed all these people. Even though he starts out hunting for Lee Joon Young, his hunt has led him towards Min. I wonder if that’s because Min has sort of grown up to be the next Joon Young? For example, Joon Young never left a corpse behind for his murders. If Min really killed all those people, then he has adopted the same idea and possibly the same modus operandi. He’s the one that is more similar to Joon Young, not Hyun. But I do feel sympathy for him because his ‘first love’ was his Hyung, whom he believed had left him behind for Joon Young. That must be awful as a kid to believe.

I also do appreciate that the culprit at the end is a little perverted as well because that explains logically how he could have seen the symbol and yet continue to do the dirty work. The beads are also a nice touch in my opinion.

As for the couple, I’m glad the previous episode was sort of a turning point for them. I guess Hyun really opens up to Ji Ahn because she believes in him, that he’s not a monster and that he’s not that bad. That’s great because I WANT TO SEE MORE COUPLE INTERACTION. How can Ji Ahn not swoon as he tucks that lock of hair behind her ear??

I need a preview of the next episode right now.

    Best episode yet! I like that eventhough min reveal was anti-climatic, the story shifted the focus on min’s pov.. And the look of hyun’s face when he realized min had possibly be the next lee joon young..


    • Yeah the Min reveal was quite anti-climatic, but I think that’s because they have been dropping so many hints through out the episodes too! I love that dramatic ending heh.
