How does Fix You episode 1 begin?

A footballer named Oh Yoo Min arrives in an emergency section of the hospital, appearing to be injured. He begs for his leg to be chopped off as he cannot kick a ball anymore.

Lee Si Joon says we will have to “cut it off then” sarcastically. The patient soon backs out and ends up running proving it’s in his head — he isn’t injured. Lee Si Joon diagnoses him.

Introduction to Han Woo Joo

We are then introduced to Han Woo Joo who is a performing theatre actress. Afterwards, she tells her doctor Ji Young Wong that she’s had problems with her fans. Flashbacks show her angrily destroying the promo materials in front of crowds. She asks her if her anger is justified. The doctor says her life is divided between before 6 and after 6. There are hints of BPD and intermittent explosive disorder.

I’m sure this will come to fruition in later episodes.

What does the rest of the episode tell us?

Throughout the episode Lee Si Joon deals with different patients — they have a team of doctors like the series House.

How does Fix You episode 1 end?
