JTBC’s Doctor Cha has reached a turning point as Cha Jeong Sook (Uhm Jung Hwa) uncovers all of her husband Seo In Ho’s (Kim Byung Chul) secrets. The shifting dynamics between Cha Jeong Sook, Seo In Ho, Choi Seung Hee (Myung Se Bin), and Roy Kim (Min Woo Hyuk) are keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. As each character reaches a critical moment, we delve into their changes.
Cha Jeong Sook, after learning about her husband’s secret, has considered ending their marriage. However, her desire to keep a peaceful environment for their children during a crucial time has stopped her.
But the revelation that Choi Seung Hee and Seo In Ho have a daughter, Choi Eun Seo (So Ah Ain), and that their own daughter Seo Yi Rang (Lee Seo Yeon) is aware of this, has sent Jeong Sook into a tearful meltdown. The last vestige of a reason to keep her marriage intact is gone, and all eyes are on her ultimate decision, clouded by deep despair and rage.
Seo In Ho has started to have a change of heart – his wife’s absence in his life has made him realize her importance. Adding to his emotional turmoil is the presence of Roy Kim, which has triggered his jealousy. Yet, the tightrope he’s walking between Cha Jeong Sook and Choi Seung Hee continues. He indirectly expressed that he has no intention of divorcing when confronted by Choi Seung Hee. Now, the question is how he’ll react to Seung-hee’s suggestion of a “take some time to think”: will he strive to set things right and win back Jeong Sook, or will he gravitate toward Seung Hee?
Choi Seung Hee has made a resolution to correct everything for the sake of her daughter. Despite showing up at Cha Jeong-seok’s birthday party, she couldn’t hide her tears at the sight of a seemingly happy family. Faced with a disappointing response from Seo In Ho about his divorce, she made it clear she could no longer sustain a life as his “mistress.”
She was caught up in a whirlwind of emotions, vowing not to let her daughter live like herself, but her daughter hits the nail on the head by telling her that she just wants a husband, not a father for her daughter. With everything now out in the open, what choices will Seung Hee make?
Roy Kim, who has been unwavering in his pursuit of Cha Jeong Sook, has emerged as a major wildcard in the latter half of the series. Despite the revelation that Cha Jeong Sook and Seo In Ho are married, Roy’s first concern was Jeong Sook. He candidly advised her to choose the path to her own happiness, even after discovering the truth about her marital status. This pivotal moment marked him as more than a colleague and friend to her, setting him up as a significant factor in her future decision-making.
