Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking for the now missing body. Jing Zhi and Lin Qiao start living together even though she tries to get rid of him. She is determined to get him out of her house so she agrees to help him track down his enemy so she can go back living her peaceful life. She gets Ling Qiao a job as a taekwondo teacher so that he can make some money, and he got cast in her drama to play the main villain. Zhang Xuan Xuan (Shen Meng Chen) is suspicious of Ling Qiao and asks Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) to look into his background. Meanwhile Ling Qiao, Jing Zhi and Feng Dong Dong (Yang Aro) continue attempting to track down Ling Qiao’s enemy, whom they now have proof is alive. However they get into a little fight and Ling Qiao has spent a night away from the house.
We’re back in front of the dojan and Dong Dong is mad at Ling Qiao for seducing other women, which confuses Ling Qiao since that wasn’t what he was doing. Dong Song reveals that he was sent to the dojang by Jing Zhi to find out where he was staying because she was worried. Dong Dong starts ranting about how if you really care for something then they don’t want to share and if they don’t mind sharing it means it’s not something they need. Ling Qiao tells Dong Dong that he is like everyone else to him, which hurts Dong Dong but he assures Ling Qiao that it’s okay if he says that to him just don’t tell that to Jing Zhi since she’s a little slow. Dong Dong tells Ling Qiao that he better go home tonight or else Jing Zhi will stay up late watching TV waiting for him.
Ling Qiao goes back to the ocean and tells it that he’s back for another night, and it’s not because he doesn’t have a place to go, but simply because he doesn’t want to become Jing Zhi’s possession. He tells the ocean that he was told she’ll stay up late if he doesn’t come back home but he has no proof of that. Later Ling Qiao goes home to find Jing Zhi asleep with a coffee in her hand in front of the TV that is still playing. He turns off the TV, puts the coffee on the table and brings her to bed, and tucks her in.
She seems to wake up for a second, however it seems like she was still asleep because the next morning she wakes up and get made that Ling Qiao didn’t come home that night again. Dong Dong then arrives and tells her to hurry up because they need to go to her parents house.
Xuan Xuan and Hong Shi Guang (Lin Xin Liang) meet to finalize a contract between their two companies. Xuan Xuan teases that the reason she came herself was so he would have a hard time concentrating and she could have a better contract, but he should be taking care of himself. Shi Guang jokes saying that if they really did marry than he could retire and take care of his health. His secretary comes in a tells Shi Guang that his cousin has returned and that maybe they should invite him to the meeting, and he tells her he’ll take care of it. Shi Guang confides in Xuan Xuan that his cousin believes that he stole the company from him since he is only the illegitimate son of his father. He changes the topic and asks about Jing Zhi’s and Ling Qiao’s relationship, and Xuan Xuan tells him that they are more than stable and very happy together.
Dong Dong and Jing Zhi wait outside of Jing Zhi’s parents house for Ling Qiao, Jing Zhi is insistent that they arrive together. Jing Zhi complains that she is always covering up how poor Ling Qiao really is to her parents, and she doesn’t know why he wants to buy a high end villa in the middle of a lake. Jing Zhi’s father sees the car and assumes that Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi are getting freaky in the back seat, so Jing Zhi calls him over. When he asks when he asks where Ling Qiao she tells him he’s running a little late and will be there soon. He tells he thinks she’s lying and Ling Qiao arrives in a new car and he apologizes for being late. While Jing Zhi’s father ongles the car, Ling Qiao tells him that he got it as a gift for him.
While inside Jing Zhi’s parents contemplate over whether or not to accept the car when her mother tells him just to accept it since it’s such a small gift. Ling Qiao explains that he hadn’t gotten them anything as an engagement gift so this was it. When they get upstairs Jing Zhi questions him about where he rented the car from and starts complaining that now she’ll have to go a buy the car for her parents. Ling Qiao tells her to not worry he bought the car himself and he’s already paid back what he owed her. When she asks where he got the money from he joked and said he got it by robbing a bank she believes him. He laughs since she won’t believe that he’s done anything good but she’ll believe he robbed a bank. Jing Zhi tells her not to scare her like that since she’s pregnant, and he quips back that when she is actually pregnant he will put her on a pedestal and worship her. She is half straddling him shaking him when he father knocks on the door but quickly changes her position to be sitting on his lap. He father tells them that it’s time to eat, however Ling Qiao gets a phone call from the police station that he needs to go down right away.
The older woman from the supermarket confirms that Ling Qiao is the one who actually helped her and the other man was the one trying to steal her money. Yan Zhi asks if she sure and she tells him she maybe old but she’s not senile. She also tells him that you could tell by his face that he has a kind heart.
Chen goes to the film set to see Jing Zhi, but when she calls her she tells him she’s not on sent today. She’s waiting for Ling Qiao to finish up at the police station and she promises to meet up soon and hangs up when Ling Qiao is finished. She attaches herself to his arm to show how possessive she is. When she’s gone Ling Qiao tells her she can stop clinging on to him. Jing Zhi asks him if he’s mad at her since she wrongly accused him of being a bad guys, but she states that since he hid the video from them she considers them even. Ling Qiao mentions that she has this obsession of being even, and she mentions that it’s only with him that she’s this way.
The enemy gets an update that Ling Qiao just left the police station because he helped an old lady and he has a flashback after saying that he is still helping people. A hundred years prior Ling Qiao save a mother and son from the imperial guard. The mother is sick and isn’t doing well, Ling Qiao invites them to his home and gets him steamed buns. We find out the enemies little name was Liao Boa.
Jing Zhi meets with Ling Qiao at the film set again and she mentions that he must have a lot of time on his hands if he keep showing up. He tells her that he’s very busy setting up a new experiment. Chen almost begs Jing Zhi to be apart of the experiment since she was in a major car accident and have very minimal injuries, she could have an underlying super mutation. Jing Zhi refuses and Xuan Xuan arrives just in time to save her.
Ling Qiao is at the dojang helping a child practice his form when Shi Guang arrives a little early. Ling Qiao mentions that the adult class only starts in an hour, and he takes a seat next to Shi Guang. Shi Guang confesses that he enjoys spending time at the dojang because it relax him. Shi Guang admits that he is luck that he was born during the current era because had he been born earlier his weak constitution would have been the death of him. Ling Qiao mentions that the exercise will help him live a long life but Shi Guang admits that a life isn’t important if it’s long, it’s only important if it’s happy. He also confesses that even though he really likes Xuan Xuan he will never marry her since he is so sick and doesn’t want to weigh her down.
Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi comes home and she ranting at him that trust isn’t something natural between people and it must be earned. She also mentions that the misunderstanding happened because he didn’t tell her completely what was going one. Ling Qiao reminds her that he did try to tell her however she didn’t want to listen. He started getting the ingredients out for supper when she asks if he will be okay. He tells her that he has memorized the recipe and will be fine. She helps him but his apron on from the front and he tells her he can’t cook with her hugging him like that. When he is done cooking Jing Zhi is a little worried about eating it, but it tastes better than before so she eats some.
Chen tries to figure out how to track down the dormant body without Jing Zhi’s help. So he calls Yan Zhi to see if they can meet up. Yan Zhi shows up late, but they go and meet with the truck driver to ask about the night of the accident. Yan Zhi asks if he can remember anything about the pervert who kissed Jing Zhi, but he tells him that since it was dark he didn’t get a good look. Chen shows the driver a picture of the dormant body’s clothes and the drive confirmed that those were the clothes that the pervert was wearing.
Once they leave Chen explains his speculation that Jing Zhi’s wounds were actually quite bad but since her blood woke up the dormant body it fed her some of his blood to save her life. Yan Zhi doesn’t believe him however that doesn’t stop him from calling Jing Zhi to warn her. However at the time Jing Zhi is suffering from food poisoning but she tells Yan Zhi it’s just some cramps.
When Jing Zhi falls to the ground Ling Qiao comes to see what wrong. She asks him to take her to the hospital to be treated for food poisoning however Ling Qiao simply gives her some of his blood to heal her. She mentions to him that Yan Zhi and Chen know that he’s awake and he better be careful. He jokes and tell her that he’ll bring her with him to the forest when he needs to escape. After she probes a little bit about his wealthy he agrees to show her how he got it.
Jing Zhi and Ling Qiao go and have a photo shoot to try and help him get his memory back. While they stood outside his old home, she mentions that it could have been his wife that killed him after finding out he was a monster. He assures her that he wouldn’t have had a wife, of that he is certain. When she asks if he is interested in her he tells her he isn’t interested in anybody. When she mentions that all men say that, he tells her that the longer you live the less curiosity and passion you feel because everything will be there forever for you. Jing Zhi tells him to not worry because as long as you live something good will appear before you. He smiles at her and promises to bring her somewhere.
