Sang-hyuk and Baek-ryun start getting closer throughout this episode. Sang-hyuk unconsciously starts to overprotect Baek-ryun and make her feel the butterflies in her tummy. From picking her up from work every day to dropping her at home so that the killer can stay away, his polite actions make her fall for him harder and harder. Is he feeling the same? Absolutely, however, his first intention is to keep her safe but definitely he’s in love with her, given the way he despises Jae-hee getting closer to her.

The killer notices Sang-hyuk’s actions and fails to get rid of Baek-ryun. Meanwhile, Jae-hee buys the theory of Sang-hyuk as the connection between the 1993 high school girls’ murder and Eun-seo’s match. Sang-hyuk previously gave him a red book that was found in the 1993 case. To see whether the book has anything to do with Eun-seo’s case as well, he drops by her home and inspects. Surprisingly he finds a similar notebook titled “Adultery’.

He discusses it with the detective who handled the 1993 case and learns that the killer gives out such notebooks to the victims, 24 hours before he kills them. The saddest thing is that Jeong-ah didn’t receive such a book but she was killed, making the cops wonder why he chose her. Jae-hee also learns that the senior detective who failed to find the criminal killed himself due to shame. Jae-hee becomes more determined to find the killer.

Somehow every trail leads the cops back again to the same possible suspect, Eun-seo’s affair. Though the man is cleared off, the cops can’t let him out of their gaze as he seems to be matching most of the pieces of evidence. But Jae-hee feels that there might be another killer out there who is trying to frame this man as the bad guy. None of the detectives accept Jae-hee’s assumption. During an interrogation, Baek-ryun is asked to participate in hypnosis to collect her memories.

My Man is Cupid Episode 6 Review

Not much about the killer is shown but more light is being shed on the businessman who had an affair with Eun-seo. Seems like she was also pregnant when she died and the man claims he isn’t the father. Could there be another killer or is it this same pal who is hiding in broad daylight? Why was Jeong-ah killed when she wasn’t even a planned victim of the killer? Could it be because she was misunderstood for someone else or could it be because she was killed during an act of saving someone else? Answers to these questions will be provided in the further episodes.

Baek-ryun will recollect all her memories from the past and of course it’d be filled with Jae-hee. Her feelings for Sang-hyuk might start to shake as she might get more inclined towards Jae-hee, her past lover. This might alarm Sang-hyuk and he might repeat history once again by splitting the destined couple. But this time Baek-ryun is destined for Sang-hyuk but he won’t be aware of it. There are chances of him even letting her go for the sake of the sin he did back then.
