Behind Your Touch Kdrama Episode 8 Review
Episode 8 of Behind Your Touch thickens the mystery and suspense very effectively. Kim Seon-woo’s character is made to seem highly suspicious through the shaman’s reactions and his unclear history.
It appears Kim Seon-woo is being set up as a red herring, while the real killer is likely someone hiding in plain sight that we least expect.
The drama continues to balance intrigue and comedy, like the quirky use of the psychics’ ability to read memories by touching butts for investigative purposes.
Jang-yeol and Ye-boon’s chemistry also shines through their banter and teamwork.
While the procedural crime plot moves along steadily, the drama excels most in its offbeat details and character dynamics.
The subplot romance between Da-eun’s brother and Ok-hee injects some lightness too. Overall, Behind Your Touch remains a highly enjoyable watch that leaves you curious for more.
Behind Your Touch Kdrama Episode 8 Ending Explained
The episode concludes with a big twist revealing that Ae-ran is actually alive, contrary to the suspicions that she was the latest victim of the serial killer.
It turns out Ae-ran worked with Gwang-sik to fake her own kidnapping and disappearance.
They did this to help Ae-ran escape from the crushing debt she owed to the abusive owner of the Mujin coffee shop where she worked.
Gwang-sik cared for Ae-ran and hid her at the abandoned factory to make it seem she was taken by the killer.
This explains why he lied about his relationship with her when questioned by Jang-yeol and Ye-bun earlier.
Although this revelation solves the mystery of what happened to Ae-ran, it means the real serial killer behind the other murders is still at large in Mujin.
Even more shockingly, Gwang-sik discloses to Ye-boon that when they were struck by the meteor shower giving them psychic powers, he saw a third person present at his farm with them.
This implies there is another person with psychic abilities in Mujin beyond just Gwang-sik and Ye-boon.
Gwang-sik speculates this unknown third psychic could potentially be the one carrying out the serial killings, using their powers to stay undetected.
Gwang-sik likely kept this critical third person a secret until now to avoid becoming a suspect himself. But this news adds a new wrinkle to the hunt for the killer’s identity.
Meanwhile, the episode’s ending also continues to fuel suspicions about Kim Seon-woo’s character.
The shaman General MacArthur is shown glaring ominously at Kim Seon-woo when he leaves after caring for the collapsed shaman.
This suggests the shaman may know or suspect something sinister about Kim Seon-woo’s past or true motives.
Combined with the third psychic reveal, the ending generates intense intrigue and mystery about where the story will go next.
Behind Your Touch Episode 8 leaves viewers hooked to find out more in upcoming episodes about who this unknown third psychic could be, whether they are linked to the killings, and what secrets Kim Seon-woo might be hiding.
