We left episode 10 surprised that hot doc is not just your run of the mill, turtleneck loving, hypnotist. Nope, in fact he is Seo Jin's childhood BFF and the other boy who had been kidnapped when they were young. Is it wrong that I was actually glad that he turned out to be the bad guy? Otherwise his underuse as a second lead would just be tragic. Not only that, but now there is a logical explanation why he wears those ugly turtlenecks (he has a scar on his neck he is hiding......or at least I am going to assume that is the reason. It is the only thing that makes that horrible look make sense).
Thank goodness the show has finally started to find its footing. Unfortunately, it is probably too late to win back viewers, but hopefully this will help it in its long run viewing numbers. I am finally invested in the romance (as long as Seo Jin ends up being the dominate personality) and I am totally in love with the over the top bad guy Hot Doc. I love his complicated plotting and his extreme evil expressions when he is doing his monologues. It is as if a young Bond Villain found his way onto the scene and is starting his world domination attempts on the small scale of Wonderland/Seo Jin.
