Sang-hyuk reveals about the red books and the titles associated with sins the women committed, leading the killer to target and murder them. However, Jeong-ah was murdered without receiving a book and this is a reason why Sang-hyuk’s confused about. Maybe she was killed due to witnessing some other women’s death. This also makes Sang-hyuk understand that just like how the killer is after Baek-ryun, he would have killed Jeong-ah.

Sang-hyuk also says Jae-hee that the man they sketched via Baek-ryun’s hypnosis isn’t the right one because the killer is wearing a prosthetic mask. Jae-hee does believe Sang-hyuk but feels skeptic about him. When the two visit one victim’s family, they recognise Sang-hyuk but he denies knowing them. Later in the episode, Jae-hee gets a mail with Sang-hyuk’s old cop photos, making him question why Sang-hyuk hid the fact he used to be working in the 1993 case back then.

Meanwhile, Baek-ryun finds it hard to stop thinking about Sang-hyuk and becomes lovesick. The hug they both shared confuse her and she keeps wondering why he hasn’t reverted back.

My Man is Cupid Episode 8 Review

Yes, the kiss has finally come but it didn’t sit well. She’s drunk and he kissed her—quite odd isn’t it? Though she initiated a peck, it doesn’t justify the kiss and it didn’t feel romantic enough given she doesn’t even remember it. I really hope the writers realise what sort of a mistake they did. She will be happy when she gets to learn about the kiss given she loves him but that doesn’t justify kissing a drunk woman who’s not having a control over herself. So far the series was doing good, but this scene is a big loss!
