When Joon Soo returns to his uncles hall, Dan Tae’s already gone.

Dan Tae meets up with Grandmother Suk for tea, but she calls him Joon Pyo so she already knows in real identity. She sits and asks him how much longer they will have to meet in secret. She worries that Joon Soo might have caught on. He tells her not to worry, he thinks they just came at the same time. He also reminds her that she should call him Dan Tae until they can tell everyone he’s Joon Pyo.

We get a flashback to the first meeting when he met with Grandmother 15 days earlier. He tells her that he thinks he found Joon Pyo. She doesn’t believe him at first but he pulls out the DNA tests. She had Joon Pyo’s DNA ran so they could match a candidate, so Dan Tae ran his blood against it, and it came back 99.9997% match. They both break down crying, and she makes him promise not to go anywhere again. They agree that until he can find the culprit than it should remain a secret, so she moved her Secretary into another position to make an opening for him to work with her.

He apologizes about not finding the culprit at the arboretum. She tells him that it’s ok, because she’s happy to have found him. She more afraid of him getting hurt while find the culprit. She tells him that she really just wants to be able to tell people that he’s her grandson. He apologizes and asks her to wait a little longer. Because of the culprit, his mother dies in a traffic accident and his father is in a comatose state so he must find them.

Grandmother asks if there is no good news and Dan Tae admits that he has a bit of a dilemma. He tells her that he really likes a girl but because he doesn’t want to bring her into the kerfuffle that is his life he can’t tell her. He doesn’t know if he can accept her heart when he can’t talk freely about his life to her he doesn’t feel like he has the right to accept her feelings. He also admits that he has a hard time figuring out if he’s Dan Tae or Joon Pyo those days. Grandmother asks what he will do if she leave due to the misunderstanding, and he admits that he is worried about that too.

He tells her that he won’t be able to go and she should give it to someone else. She tells him that it’s fine that he just throws it out then and leaves with a ticket leaving the other with him. He remembers her promising that she’ll act however she wants not matter what, and that even if he doesn’t accept she will head to him. He thinks about going to the movies, but then chastises himself knowing that if he goes he won’t be able to hold back anymore. He stuff the movie ticket in a book so it doesn’t tempt him, but when he hears Gong Shim come up the stairs he frantically looks for it again.
