I’m going to put this out there. If you want a life changing drama this isn’t it, but if you want a creative reimagining of the Cinderella archetype this might be for you. Though sold as a reverse harem, it is really not. For a true reverse harem drama, watch You’re Beautiful instead.

We follow Eun Ha Won (Park So Dam) a hard working girl, who just wants to get to college. She struggles to save money because while her father is away her step-mother and step-sister treat her like a working staff member. By chance, she happens to meet Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) and is dragged before Chairman Kang (Kim Yong Geon)  where she ends up showing off her bullheaded personality. She gets hired to turn the Chairman’s grandsons, Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo), Hyun Min and Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin), into proper gentlemen with the help of Lee Yoon Sung. Of course, with a woman living in the house with 3 other men things are bound to get spicy.

This is a very nice drama, it knows what it wants and where it’s going. And though there are some dark undertones, the overall show is every upbeat. It’s a definite watch in my book.

The votes are out that 52% of the votes was opposed to the chairman being dismissed. Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri) tells Yoon Sung (Choi Min) that it’s his fault and he made a mistake. He tells her that it was the only way he could stop her. She can’t believe that he wanted to protect the chairman and the 3 cousins so much to go behind his own mother’s back.

Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) comes and asks Ha Won (Park So Dam) what happened. She admits that she doesn’t know. The chairman (Kim Yong Geon) was wheeled into recovery but Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) wasn’t. The doctor comes out and tells them that thought the chairman’s liver transplant is perfect, Ji Woon fell into shock during the surgery. He had warned Ji Woon but he wanted to have the procedure done anyway. Hyun Min verifies that he’s saying that Ji Woon may not wake up. Ha Won goes into shock and nearly falls but Hyun Min catches her.

The chairman wakes up and the doctor tells him that he’s alive because of Ji Woon and the chairman asks about him. Hyun Min shakes his head and the doctor tells him that he’s recovering and to not worry about him.

Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) comes to see Ha Won who’s sitting with Ji Woon. He tells her to go home because she stayed all night with him again. She tells him that she’s fine but he doesn’t believe her. She admits that she never thought that Ji Woon would leave her first. She thought it would be enough for her to be away from him but that wasn’t the case. They have so many things that they haven’t done and that she wants to do with him. She tells Seo Woo that she didn’t love Ji Woon enough or even tell him how she felt properly. Seo Woo tells her that Ji Woon probably knows.

Kang tells Yoon Sung that he will take care of the resignation letter and he must make sure to disown his stocks when he leaves. Kang also tells him to bring the divorce papers to Hwa Ja when he leaves. Yoon Sung admits that Hwa Ja is his mother and is willing to take the blame as he leaves. Kang is surprised but Yoon Sung thanks him for everything that he’s done for him up to then and takes his leave.

Yoon Sung bumps into Hyun Min on his way out. Hyun Min mentions that he told him not to come see his grandfather. Yoon Sung tells him that he was only there to say his final farewell and Hyun Min doesn’t believe that he has the right to. Hyun Min requests to never see each other again and goes in to see his grandfather.

Ha Won is taking care of Ji Woon and she starts telling him why she likes him. She admits that he was a real asshole but he would show up when she was in trouble. Eventually, she would wait for him to show up and before she knew it she had eyes only for him. She tells him that she was happy for all the little things that made him fall in love with her, but right now, even though he’s with her, she misses him like crazy. She starts to cry silently.

Hyun Min brings Kang to see Ji Woon. The doctor’s words play across the chairman’s minds about Ji Woon knowing the risks. Hyun Min arrives and Ha Won steps aside while the chairman comes to see Ji Woon. Hyun Min gives her some silent support. After awhile, they head out and the chairman wants to talk with Ha Won. He’s surprised that she didn’t leave and she tells her about her feeling of guilt. He tells her that she wasn’t the reason he fainted. She tells him that she doesn’t care about money or anything else. She came in with nothing and she wouldn’t be losing anything. Kang asks that if they have no money if she’ll still feel that what and if she can’t say she would she should stop her feelings. She starts to cry. Kang watches Ha Won care for Ji Woon.

Ha Won meets with Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) and Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong). She’s told that her father (Seo Hyun Chul) fell asleep at the wheel and got into an accident. Though he’s fine, the driver in the other vehicle is badly injured and they are going to be throwing him in jail if they don’t settle. Ha Won finds out that settlement is 6 million won and they beg her to ask the Hanuel group for some help since they have no money.

Ha Won gets a call that Ji Woon has woken up and runs to the hospital. She sees the chairman and his words play through her head. Everyone gathers around and the CEO apologises to Ji Woon and he tells him it’s fine. Ji Woon asks about Ha Won, and she stands outside the door and thanks him for waking up.

Ha Won is walking when she gets a call from Ji Woon and she ignores it.

The CEO is getting ready to leave when Hwa Ja comes in. She explains to him what happened and that she got the divorce papers. She admits to feeling apologetic towards him but she doesn’t regret her actions. He tells her that he will never forgive her for what she did and she agrees that he shouldn’t. She tells him though that he should hate only her because Yoon Sung protected him till the end and only attended the meeting to vote against him being dismissed. She leaves and Hyun Min watches after her.

Ha Won is at the police station and she tells her stepmother that she sent the money and Gi Sang should be out any second. When he comes out, she makes sure that he’s ok. He asks how she got the money and she tells him that she worked at the sky house and got it honestly. Gi Sang takes her hand and tells her that it’s time to go home.

Ji Woon arrives home to find Ha Won not in her room. He asks Ms Belgyo about it and she is surprised that she wasn’t at the hospital.

Ha Won gets off the bus with her father and comes face to face with Ji Woon. He father excuses herself and they go to talk. Ji Woon admits that he waited for her to come and missed her like crazy. She tries to play the bad guy but he tells her he doesn’t care for her reason for staying. She tells him that she does and tells him the deal she has with the chairman. She tells him that she doesn’t fit in his world and she finally realised that. He tells her he’ll give up everything and she tells at him. She reminds him that he’s living the live that people can only dream of and he talks so casually of throwing it away. He tells her that if he loses her it’ll be the same as losing everything. She walks away and Ji Woon looks like he’s about to cry.

Ha Won manages to arrive home before breaking down. She thinks of all the good times they had together. Ha Won’s voice-over tells us that she’s sorry for always running away even though he’s the one that always approaches first.

Ji Woon walks aimlessly with tears in his eyes.

Seo Woo is at the record label office and his manager gives him a new schedule. Seo Woo asks if he’s manager if he wants him to continue to since. His manager tells him that he does because he shines when he sings. Seo Joo decides that he want’s to travel by foot with busking and his manager is floored.

Hyun Min meets up with Hye Ji he goes to kiss her through the glass but she’s too shy for that. She asks what he’s up too and he tells her that he wants to kiss her. She mentions that people are watching. He informs her that he’s going to hug her and kiss her when he wants. He’s going to hold her hand and never let go. She assures him that she’s not going anywhere and he kisses her.

Seo Woo goes to talk with Ji Woon and asks if he couldn’t get into contact with Ha Won. Ji Woon tells him that she’s told him that she never wants to see him again. Seo Woo finds it weird that she nursed him so diligently for someone she never wanted to see again Ji Woon takes the blame on making things too difficult for her. He wonders if he should let her go if things are too hard for her. Seo Woo tells him of course, after all, he loves her. He tells Ji Woon that he believes that Ha Won is feeling the same way and he thinks back to the conversation that he had with her while Ji Woon was unconscious. Seo Woo tells him that she acted like she had to leave for his sake. Ha Won loves him like no one else on the planet and he shouldn’t let her go. Ji Woon thanks him and heads off. Once Ji Woon is out of hearing range, Seo Woo tells him that since he stole his first love away from him he should be good to her.

Ji Woon goes to see the CEO and asks him what he said to Ha Won. He inquires to if he told her that he would be hurt and it was better for him if she wasn’t with him. The CEO backs up with his decision. Ji Woon tells him that he wants her bu his side and he doesn’t care if he has to go through the same thing his parents did because he’ll regret not having her in his life. He asks if his grandfather wants to have the regret of him leaving the same way as his father. Kang refuses and Ji Woon gets to his knees. He begs his grandfather telling him that he can’t breathe without Ha Won by his side.

The chairman sits and thinks about Ha Won. Not only her actions but also what she told him.

Ha Won is out with her family and they get a tofu meal for Gi Sang. He tells them that he wasn’t in the detention very long. Soo Kyung tells him that it was for her and she can’t live without him. There is a spicy tofu dish and Ha Won looks at it. Soo Kyung pushes it towards her and when she tries to push it too Yoo Na she tells her that she’s not having any of that. Ha Won puts a piece on her plate before eating. Ha Won gets a call from the chairman and she answers.

Ha Won tells the chairman that it’s good to see him healthy. He tells her that everyone is worried since she left without saying a word. She apologises and he tells her not to bother since he’s the one who asked her to leave. He inquires about her stay at the Sky House and she tells him it was fine. When he asks, she gives him a run down of how Hyun Min was in the house. It sums up to be thoughtful and innocent in some ways. He always made her laugh when she had some hard decisions to make. She tells him that Hyun Min is also not a playboy. He inquires about Seo Woo and she tells him that he’s nice to others and the closest friend she has among them. He may seem like a good for nothing but he has his own philosophy in life and he knows that life doesn’t come easy. He asks about Ji Woon and she pauses. He tells her that it’s up to them now because he’s giving his blessing. He tells her that Ji Woon misses her a lot. She tells him that He was right though that when she needed money, she couldn’t pick him over money. She admits that she was happy while she was at the Sky House. He tells her that it hasn’t been 3 months yet and that’s what she promised him and she’s free to come back whenever.

Seo Woo heads out and his manager follows. He asks what’s going on and his manager tells him that even if he wants to go back to busking, his face won’t let him. He’s too well known to go alone. So he’s decided to go with him and gets him a porter. He calls Ja Young over and she’s excited. They all head off together.

Ji Woon gets his father’s wedding ring from his grandfather. He tells him that his parent’s exchanged rings and asks if he’s ever seen his mother’s. He tells him no but then when he sees the ring he remembers seeing it around Ha Won’s neck. He  starts linking everything together.

Hyun Min meets with Ha Won and he sits beside her. He tells her that she didn’t commit any crimes and he mentions that she left her room empty and asked him to bring her things. She teases him about the favour and mentions she’s a has been. Hyun Min asks if she regrets letting a catch like him get away but she tells him that he and Hye Ji suit each other. Hyun Min asks about Ji Woong, because he nursed him so diligently just to disappear when he wakes up. He gives her the shoes that she wore at his grandfather’s wedding. She tells him they aren’t hers. He hands them back and tells her that when she’s ready to love, she should put the shoes on and walk to the man she loves. He tells her that it’s obvious that she’s heartbroken and shouldn’t hide it. He knows she loves Ji Woon and he tells her that she should think of only her feeling for him.

Ji Woon is looking at the ring and then calls to look into the deaths at the apartment his mother died at to find someone what looking for him. He comes face to face with Gi Sang and recognises him. He mentions that Ha Won’s mother died in the same fire as his mother. She was trying to save the woman in 307 when she was given a ring. Gi Sang puts it on the table and Ji Woong notices it as the one that Ha Won wears. He tells him that they thought it was Ha Won’s mother but it turns out to be his. He didn’t know that significant of the ring until Ji Woon tells him. Gi Sang tells him that his relationship with Ha Won is deep because they both lost their mother and use the same funeral home. Ji Woong seemed confused and he asks if he doesn’t remember that they had the wake in the same hospital.

Ji Woon is driving and he thinks back to the every time Ha Won held a bouquet of white flowers. He remembers a little girl crying and him giving her a white rose. He tells her if she makes a box with her fingers she can see her mother. At the end of the wakes, Ji Woon gave Ha Won his armband and she gave him her bobby pin. She makes him promise to give it back to her.

Ha Won is looking at the shoes that Hyun Min gave her and thinks seriously about his words. She gets a phone call and her father tells her that he found the owner of the ring. He asks her to guess who it was and he tells her that it was the boy from the Hanuel group who came to see her. She’s surprised and her father asks her if she likes him.

Ji Woon pulls up and Ha Won steps out. they walk 1/2 up and down the stairs near Ha Won’s house. He father’s voice plays over the scene. He tells her that he doesn’t think that it’s a coincidence that her mother held that ring in her hand and she held on to it for 10 years. The fact that they held the funeral at the same place doesn’t help.  Ji Woon hands her the bobby pin and she gives him his arm band. He apologises for being late and she thanks him for giving it back. He puts the ring on her finger and tells her to think of him when he sees the ring and not her mother. Ha Won puts the ring on his hand and tells him to do the same.

Seo Woo seems to be having fun busking with Ja Young beside him.

Hyun Min goes to see Yoon Sung and asks if he’s really not going back. Yoon Sung tells him that he doesn’t have the right to go back. Hyun Min apologises for not trusting him and admits that he wanted to protect him. He tells him that his grandfather is waiting for him.

Hwa Ja is trying to sell life insurance to no avail. Kang comes out of nowhere and gives her flowers. He tells her that he refuses to live with regrets. He made a terrible mistake with his son and nearly did the same with his grandson. Ji Woon asked if he was going to live his laugh with regrets and Ha Won understands too and is even cheering for their love. Hwa Ja is moved to tears. She admits to feeling both apologetic and grateful.

Hyun Min and Hye Ji goes to see Hyun Jung. Hyun Min tells him that he’s only thought of him for 10 years but now he’s going to only think about Hye Ji. He promises to love her a lot in his stead. When they walk back he tells her that he’s been waiting to come with her. They share a loving kiss but the sea.

Ji Woon is taking pictures when Ha Won comes out. She tells him that she’s going to take on of him. She sends him to stand a little ways away. He notices her lack of a ring and she tells him that took it off while helping Ms Belgyo. He puts it back on and he complains about it. He tells her no touching for a month and she tells him that she feels like she’s dating a child. He hugs her from behind and she tries to shrug him off. He tells her that the ring is the only thing that linked them for so long and he wants her to treat it special. He tells her he loves her and she echos his feelings. They leave holding hands.

He found out recently that it wasn’t true and that his grandfather actually kicked her out of the house. He planned on never seeing anyone from the house again but she was right.

Hhyun Min is in his room and he picks up his phone. He contemplates calling Hye Ji but decides against it.

Seo Woo is at the record company when his manager comes in and tells him that all of his concerts were cancelled. Seo Woo laughs it off but his manager reminds him that it would have been ver kill had there not been so many articles about his grandfather. Seo Woo tells him that Ji Woon came to get tested and he feels like something good will happen.

Ha Won goes back into her room at the sky house and tells herself that she’ll break up with Ji Woon when the time comes but she needs to sort her feelings out.

Ji Woon sits on his bed and looks at his grandfather’s cell. Ha Won’s words run through his head. He pulls out his wallet to look at a picture of his mother. He tells her that he came back and wonders if he did the right thing.

The Doctor tells Ji Woon he ‘s a match, however, he’s allergic to general anaesthetics. They are unsure what his reaction will be if he undergoes the surgery. There is a chance that he’ll go into shock on the table. He’s warned that the worst-case scenario is that he won’t wake up. He must make a choice as to whether he will go through with the surgery or not.

Ha Won meets with Yoon Sung and she asks if he’s alright cause he looks down. He tells her to go in without answering her question. Ji Woon comes out and she asks what the results are and he tells her that they are having the surgery. Ha Won is super happy and Yoon Sung will tell Hwa Ja.

Seo Woo runs out and says that they’re having the surgery. He tells Ms Belgyo and Hyun Min that Jung Woo is a match. Ms Belgyo is happy but she as a lot of things to do and asks the young masters help before dragging them away.

Ha Won goes to see the chairman and tells him that he’s going to be able to have the surgery and he should hurry and wake up because the boys are waiting for him. She pulls out the family portrait and puts it down.

She admits that she’s worried about him and he tells her that he’ll be fine. He uses her worry to get her to go and get him some food.

Hye Ji is going through Henry’s Instagram when she notices a picture of him and Hyun Min together. She calls and asks for a meeting. When they sit down, Henry imagines she’s agreeing but she asks if he knows Hyun Min. He tells her that he did look at her work for Hyun Min but it’s not the reason he gave her the offer. She refuses and Henry tells her that he wouldn’t put his name on the line for anyone, even Hyun Min, and he made the decision about her skill on his own. Hye Ji starts to protest but Henry tells her that it’s only natural that a man wants to cheer on the woman he loves. He reminds himself of his conversation with Hyun Min about his feelings for Hye Ji and it spiked his interest. He tells her that it’s fine if she refuses now but his offer still stands because he refuses to let a talent like her’s get away.

Ha Won returns to find Hyun Min, Seo Woo and Ms Belgyo there. She yells at them and they line up. They try to persuade her to let Ji Woon play. Ha Won tells them that Ji Woon needs to be completely calm for his surgery and asks if they are going to take responsibility if he gets worked up and damages his health. She ushers them out while Ji Woon smiles to himself. The trio leaves complaining about Ha Won when Hyun Min notices the lawyer. He tells Seo Woo and Ms Belgyo to go ahead and he’ll be following soon.

Hyun Min goes and confronts Yoon Sung. Yoon Sung asks him to leave and Hyun Min tells him that he knows everything. He asks if he’s aware that Hwa Ja is trying to remove his grandfather from his position. He accuses Yoon Sung of loving money that much. Yoon Sung snaps at him and asks him if he thought that the position would protect himself, because there are a lot of people who want the position of CEO of the company and if he continues to act the way he is he won’t be an heir any longer. Hyun Min tells him that he’s going to have to wait and see how well he protects things that are his.

He goes to blow his nose and the tissues appear to be coming out of woman’s behind. Ha Won takes the box and tells him she’ll bring something else for him to use. He can’t believe it. There is a little struggle for the box and Ha Won falls on him. He teases her that it’s because she wanted a kiss and she denies it. She tells him to watch TV and the announcement of the shareholder meeting comes on. The announcer mentions that they are unsure as to who is going to get the position. It’s between the newly appointed third largest shareholder or the Kang Cousins.

Yoon Sung gets a call from Hwa Ja reminding him what he has to do.

Seo Woo comes into Hyun Min’s room and asks if he’s seen the text message. He can’t believe that’s happening. Hyun Min tells him that they are essentially telling them that they will drag their grandfather down no matter what. Seo Woo doesn’t believe that this will happen. Hyun Min warns him that the other side is already starting to get people on their side to vote him out. Seo Woo asks who and Hyun Min warns him the Yoon Sung is the one orchestrating everything from behind the scenes. They split up who they have to meet with and Hyun Min tells him that they need to just stay afloat until their grandfather wakes up.

Hyun Min meets together with the shareholders that are essentially the founding father’ of the company. He tells them that he knows that they will have some doubts with him being so new, however, he wants to protect the company that his grandfather and they built. He tells them he is not dumb to think that it will be easy but he wants to protect it.

Hye Ji is at work and thinks over Henry’s words and when the news starts talking about the Hanuel group Hye Ji asks to step out due to an emergency.

Hyun Min goes to the hospital and tells his grandfather that he’s worked really hard and he should praise him when he wakes up. He goes to sit with Ji Woon who mentions that Seo Woo told him what’s happening. Hyun Min asks if he calls him to annoy him. Ji Woon hands him his power of attorney. He tells him that he’ll be in surgery the following day and he’s still a shareholder. Hyun Min mentions that it’s amazing that he’d step up to help him, and Ji Woon reminds him that he’s helping their grandfather survive by giving him a chunk of his liver, so Hyun Min better protect him too.

When seated she asks why he’s not eating and he tells her that he can’t eat when everyone else is suffering. He tells her everything that’s going on and he can’t help with anything. Ja Young tells him to sing and cheer them up because that’s what he does best. He wonders why he thought of her at a time like this and Ja Young jokes about them being fated to be together. Seo Woo tells her to eat and goes back to drinking is soda.

Hyun Min arrives home and finds  Hye Ji there. She tells him that she needs to speak to him and he asks her to leave because he’s tired. She tells him that he can stop feeling sorry towards herself and her brother. She tells him that it’s not his fault. He tells her that he’s going to go in first. Hye Ji sits down and starts to cry and Hyun Min looks like he really wants to say something. He looks out the window and sees her, so he steps back outside again. He tells her that it’s been really hard protecting his grandfather and company. He’s never once had to protect anything of his. He always felt so bad that he couldn’t protect what she cherished more than anything else and he always felt like he was hurting her. That’s why he’s closed his heart to her and pushed her away. He tells her that he won’t do that anymore. He goes over and kisses her and she clings on to him.

Ji Woon is in the hospital thinking of the doctor’s warnings. Ha Won comes in and he smiles at her. He gets into bed and asks her what if something goes wrong during the surgery. She smacks him and tells him to not think negatively. He teases her about being scared and mentions that he’s going to be ok with her by his side. He tells her that it’s the last night and she looks sad but gets into bed with him. He tells her that there are so many things that he wanted to do with her that he wouldn’t get the chance to do. He lists them off and then mentions that she’s never granted the wish from when he found her necklace. He asks her to grant it and she asks what he wants. He wants to go on a date right then.

Ha Won distracts the nurses and Ji Woon crawls away. When they get off the elevator he’s fully dressed and bumps into a bunch of Doctors. They run through and go on a very cute date together consisting of a walk in the park, taking selfies, watching a movie and going to the aquarium. Finally, when they stop to eat something Ji Woon complains that he can’t eat anything. They go to cross the street and Ha Won realises she’s forgotten her phone. While waiting for him. Ha Won tells him no to be surprised if she’s not there when he wakes up and that she’s sorry. She screams to him that she loves him and when the light turns green he runs over and hugs her. She asks if he heard her and he kisses her.

Ji Woon tells Ha Won not to worry because he will return to her side. He strokes her hair and watches her sleep before returning to his own bed.

Hyun Min is getting ready when he gets a text from Hye Ji cheering him on.

Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) and Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) are walking and Yoo Na is complaining that they had to go so far. Soo Kyung tells her that they’re cheaper and they are getting some exercise.

Ha Won (Park So Dam) is packing when she comes across the little box that Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) gave her. She thinks back on the times she had with Ji Woon and cries. She manages to stop crying long enough to answer the phone.

Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) is signing his CDs when he thinks of Ha Won and the meal they shared as well as the advice he gave her. He goes back to signing when he cant’s a phone call.

Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) is standing alone in the park thinking about his proposal from 10 years ago. He pulls out a box with the exact same ring. He leaves it on the see-saw before walking away. He gets a phone call to which he is shocked.

Ji Woon gets a call from Yoon Sung (Choi Min) and he tells him he needs to speak with the CEO and asks if he’s at the company. Yoon Sung tells him that he’s not and that he passed out.

Ha Won is the first to arrive and she meets with Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri). Ha Won assumes responsibility for making CEO Kang (Kim Young Geon) so mad that he passed out. Hwa Ja takes it as fact when it was actually her fault. She asks what happened and Ha Won tells her. When Hwa Ja inquires about what Kang had told her, she admits that she was given the option to choose between payment or Ji Woon. Hwa Ja sends her off before everyone else arrives under the threat of telling everyone about her fault in the matter.

Ji Woon arrives and goes to talk with Yoon Sung. He’s told about his grandfather collapsing and inquiries about what’s going on. He’s told of the liver cancer and that the other two will be arriving and he can wait outside. Ji Woon asks about Ha Won and Yoon Sung admits that she said that she’d come.

Hwa Ja follows Ji Woon out and tells him that Ha Won can’t answer the phone. She tells him that his grandfather knew of his relationship with Ha Won. She talks badly about her, but Ji Woon is quick to defend Ha Won. Hwa Ja tells him that his grandfather forced Ha Won to pick between love and money. Hwa Ja admits that Ha Won is being wise because his grandfather would never let him date someone like her. She surmises that he must have been harsh to her if she left so late at night. Ji Woon excuses himself and leaves.

Seo Woo and Hyun Min arrives and are brought up to date. Hyun Min takes it personally that their grandfather never told him about his liver cancer. Seo Woo mentions that they are his own blood relatives, which Yoon Sung explains is that reason that they are having difficulty finding a match. Hyun Min leaves to see the doctor with Seo Woo on his heels. Yoon Sung tries to call Ji Woon with no success.

Hye Ji goes to see her friend who admits that she was so worried about her. She offers her the storage room since there is no room at home. Hye Ji thanks her and apologises for the inconvenience.

Hyun Min and Seo Woo talk with the doctor about the transplant and are warned of the difficulty. Seo Woo acknowledges it and Hyun Min asks for him to run the tests as quickly as possible. Once outside, Hyun Min admits that he left his car somewhere and took a cab all the way there because his hands were shaking so bad. Seo Woo was surprised that he lost his cool. Hyun Min admits that since his father’s death at 10 years old, the chairman is all he had.

Ha Won leaves her room and comes face-to-face with Ji Woon. He asks where she’s going and she tells him that she doesn’t belong there. She puts the blame on her misunderstanding him and believing she could be like Cinderella but she’s only a part-time worker. She asks him sadly to let her go and starts to walk off. Ji Woon warns her that if she leaves he’ll never see her again. It takes all the will she as to leave him.

She’s walking aimlessly while crying. She thinks back to all the good times that she had with Ji Woon which just makes her cry harder. She looks back once before continuing to walk.

Ji Woon goes to storage and thinks back to the conversation that he just had with Ha Won.

Ms Belgyo is carrying Hye Ji’s things unsure what to do with them. Hyun Min asks what’s going on and Ms Belgyo admits that Hye Ji left her things there and she didn’t want to throw them out because it would be a waste. Hyun Min takes the items to his room and while going through them he reminisces of the time spent with Hye Ji. He tells himself that he’s an asshole.

Hye Ji is sitting in the storage room looking at the picture of herself, her brother and Hyun Min from 10 years prior. She remembers his confessions and thinks back to all the times she confronted him about his feelings for her.

Hwa Ja asks Yoon Sung s anyone knows that they were there when the CEO passed out. He asks if that is really something they should be worrying about. She admits that she spoke with the doctor and they don’t know when the CEO will wake up so they’ll need a leader and she will make the judgment call if needed.

Ha Won goes to see her mother and tells her that CEO Kang is in a hard spot because of her and because of that everyone is having a hard time. She tells her that everyone is so important to her and asks what to do while crying.

Yoon Sung gets given the news that neither Seo Woo or Hyun Min are matches to the CEO. The doctor asks if there are any other relatives.

Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) and Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) go to try and pawn off their old bags but the sales rep tells them that she doesn’t believe them to be authentic and tells them why. Needless to say, they are not happy.

Ji Woon goes to a little café that he saw in a picture taken by his father. When he goes in he finds a little rustique feel with posts on the walls. An older gentleman welcomes him and leaves him to look around.

Hye Ji helps her friend out around the store and goes to put an outfit on display after seeing her friend out. Hyun Min pulls up across the street and watches her. He makes a phone call and arranges to meet with someone.

Ji Woon gets his coffee and the owner asks him if he’s recently broken up with someone. He tells him that it’s not the case but the owner can tell. Ji Woon tells him that he’s not there for himself and the owner notices the picture. He asks who’s in the picture and he tells him that it’s his mother. He takes a look and the date and asks him to wait for a second. He comes back with the notes for 1995. after finding a few notes he asks for the other boxes. He finds out what happened to his mother through the notes. He finds out how much she loves his father and why she hid him away. She wanted to make it so that Ji Won could love the woman he wanted to without ever having to worry about social status. By the end, Ji Won is crying and can’t believe his grandfather did that to his mother.

Seo Woo sits with grandfather all day. Later in the evening Hyun Min comes in and tell Seo Woo that he can’t sleep. He tells his grandfather that he’s been disobedient so he can’t ask him to wake up but he should. Once he sits back down Seo Woo shakes his head and Hyun Min sags.

Yoon Sung is at the company and he strokes the Chairman’s name plaque. He thinks back to how abusive his father was to his mother and him. We then see how hard he worked with his fighting so he could protect his mother.

Hyun Min meets with a fashion designer buddy and apologises for not making his show. He tells him it doesn’t matter so long as he wears his clothes happily and Hyun Min promises to do so. Hyun Min asks his friend a favour and he places his hand on Hye Ji’s drawing pads.

Ji Woon is driving with tears in his eyes when he gets a call. He looks at the caller display and chucks his phone out the window.

Hyun Min gets called into sees the doctor who tells him that he can’t contact Eun Ha Won. He’s informed that she came in to be a donor if she can but she’s not a match. Hyun Min is sitting with his grandfather when the nurse comes in to do some tests. Before leaving, she tells him that they received a call from a restaurant who has some of the CEO’s things.

Hyun Min finds out that the chairman’s cell was dropped but when the manager went to look for the secretary he was gone. Hyun Min finds out that Yoon Sung was with Hwa JA at the restaurant before the chairman came in and fainted. Hyun Min goes to the office to find out that Yoon Sung didn’t come to work and said he was going to the hospital. Hyun Min calls Yoon Sung and asks where he is. Yoon Sung claims he’s at the company and asked if it was anything important. Hyun Min tells him to not worry about it as he just wanted to inquire as t when he’d be at the hospital.

Yoon Sung hangs up with Hyun Min and Hwa Ja hands him an envelope containing a transfer of stock document. She tells him that if he signs it all of her stocks will become his. He asks if she really means to go through with her plan. She reminds him of the first time they met again and she told him that she wanted him to play dumb so she could live the life of a lady. She admits that it wasn’t the case but rather she wanted to live the life o a mother and take care of him if only once. She asks if he’ll let her but she’ll leave the decision up to him. Once alone the orphanage’s headmistress’s words played through his head.

Ja Young (Cho Hye Jung) is looking at her phone and asks Ha Won if she knew about Seo Woo’s grandfather. She tells her that she did and when Ja Young asks why she didn’t tell her, Ha won reminds her that she’ll just worry. Ja Young is convinced that Ha Won is not ok even though she’s smiling but Ha Won tries to assure her to the contrary. Ha Won turns around and sees her father.

He inquires to why she’s there and she tells him that she’s working 2 jobs. He worried of her living at the sky house and tells her that’s the reason that people like Young Jin came after her. She tells him she’s ok and not to worry. Gi Sang (Seo Hyun Chul) asks if she still has her mother’s ring. He tells her that the ring was actually the neighbours who wanted her son to have it. He admits that his misunderstanding with her mother was because of the ring. He wanted to return it to the rightful owner and she agrees.

Hyun Min’s friend called Hye Ji to meet. He tells her that he’s seen her designs and wants to be her mentor. He admits that he suggests 1 student every year for a full scholarship for a fashion school in Paris. He tells her that he wants to recommend her. She asks how he saw her designs and he tells her that he’s always on the look out for the up and coming designers. He admits that her work got quite a bit of attention while in school.

Hyun Min is staring at the chairman’s phone when Seo Woo comes out. Hyun Min tells him that it’s their grandfather’s phone and inquires to who passed by the hospital and Seo Woo told him no one. Hyun Min tries to open his phone but can’t. Seo Woo tries and it’s the same pass that he uses.

Ja Young goes to see Seo Woo and gives him  a meal. She tells him that you can to take care of the people in the hospital as well as the people around them. She goes on about how her father was in the hospital for cancer as well but he’s fine now. He listens to her talk and takes a mouth full. Seo Woo gets up to get water and she checks her compatibility with Seo Woo. When he returns she lies about his phone having a smudge and he asks if she knows where Ha Won is.

Seo Woo goes to see Ha Won at work and tells her he’ll wait. He can’t believe that she stopped after the phone after getting tested. She asks about the results and finds out that she isn’t a match either. He tells her that there is only Ji Woon to be tested but he’s vanished. He hands her the chairman’s cell phone and tells her that there is something that she needs to show Ji Woon. He admits that she’s the only one who can bring Ji Woon back. She’s shocked that he thinks so. He admits to knowing about their relationship and tells her that it’s the reason he’s there to ask for this favour. It hurts him that even though he’s been living with Ji Woon for a year he knows nothing about him.

Ha Won goes to see Ji Woon at the shop he used to work at. He comes out and tells her to leave after drinking. She shows him the chairman’s phone and tells him that there is something that he needs to see on it. He tells her that he doesn’t want to but finally caves when she tells him that it’s related to his father. She tells him to go inside and read the texts. She tells him that the CEO has been sending a text to his father every day since he’s found him. She tells him about everyone waiting for him. He tries to deny it but he informs her that he’s the CEO’s only chance. He doesn’t want to hear about it but she tells him that no matter how hard he hates him he shouldn’t run away. She asks if he can’t hear what the CEO wants to tell him with the texts. She tells him to go save his grandfather and then yell at him, get angry and face the problems they have head on.

Ji Woon thinks long and hard while Ha Won waits outside.

Hwa Ja introduces Yoon Sung as the new majority shareholder of the company.

The doctor comes and tells Hyun Min that the Chairman’s liver has failed completely and they need to do a transplant soon. Ji Woon comes in with Ha Won on his heels.

We get to re-watch the kiss between Ji Won (Jung Il Woo) and Ha Won (Park So Dam). On the way back, Ha Won and happily holding hands until Ja Young (Cho Hye Jung) calls and asks her how she could be dating Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) behinds her back. They pull of to the side or the road to check out the articles.

Back home, Ji Woon gets out of the car and Ha Won is soon to follow. She re-enforces that it’s not true but tells him that he can’t tell anyone that they are dating. He reminds him that the dating scandal isn’t between him and her, she and Seo Woo look really close and she’s not explaining it to him. She tells him that there is nothing to explain and asks him to keep it a secret.

They arrive home to find. Seo Woo, Yoon Sung (Choi Min) and chairman Kang (Kim Yong Geon) waiting for them. Kang automatically is assuming that she’s actually dating Seo Woo, to which Seo Woo denies. They are both deny the accusation and Ji Woon doesn’t tells him that nothing is going on. Yoon Sung confirms that nothing has happened on the premises and Kang finds that good. He tells Seo Woo to think carefully because what he says might make it the last time they see Ha Won. He starts to deny again and then asks what he means. The chairman tells them that the agreement he has with Ha Won is that she can live there so long as she doesn’t date anyone. If she does, she’ll have to leave the house and never speak to anyone at the Sky House again. Ji Woon and Seo Woo are shocked.

Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) and Hye Ji (Son Na Eun) finally arrive home. She tells him that he’s acted the way he wanted to but he shouldn’t do that again. She walks away.

Ji Woon and Seo Woo are shown the contract he has with Ha Won. Seo Woo finds it unfair that she’s off limit to date. The chairman reminds him that she is not there to be dated and to not forget that just because she lives with them doesn’t make her of their level. Seo Woo tells him he’s being rude but Ji Woon stands up and tells Seo Woo that the chairman is acting as he normally would. He tacts on that he sees family and business tools and it would be inappropriate if they dated someone he didn’t see fit.

Ja young goes to see Seo Woo and tells him about how people might oppose him dating someone but she doesn’t. She tells him about Ha Won and who she can be. He asks if she accepted the article as truth and she nodded. He tells her nothing is going on between Ha Won and he and an article refuting the claim should be out soon. He tells Ja Young that he’ll be going and she’s happy that it was a mistake.

Ha Won goes to see Ji Woon in the shop. She asks if he’s mad and he can’t believe she signed a contract like that. She told him that she didn’t know that things were going to end up like that. He asks if she’s confident that she could go with not seeing him ever again and tells her to get the contract annulled.  She reminds him that Hyun Min and he both drove her crazy and she couldn’t have predicted that she could end up dating him. He asks if that’s why she was leaning on Seo Woo. She confirms that Seo Woo was the only one who treated her like a human being. He asks if it’s his fault and she brings up how much time he’s been spending with Hye Ji and if he ever thought about how she felt. He asks if she’s picking a fight, but she only replied with asking if he thinks she can’t. Ha Won leaves an irritated Ji Woon who ends up smiling to himself.

Yoon Sung is still following Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri) around. She stops at a children’s clothing store first and buys a ton of clothes that she brings to an orphanage. Yoon Sung goes into the orphanage and talks about how to sponsor. He finds out about Hwa Ja coming often. The story is that she lost her son at a young age and wants to give the children the love she could never give him. He gets told that she finds herself a terrible mother who could never provide for her son and the headmistress tells him that she’s certain that hearing all those children call her mother isn’t the same as if she heard it once from her own son.

Hyun Min notices Hye Ji walking and he follows behind her with a smile. When he sees her go to Ji Woon’s workspace his smile falters.

Ha Won is pacing her room thinking about her fight with Ji Woon. She wonders if she was too mean and why she brought up Hye Ji. She tells herself that it’s his fault for starting it and complains that she can’t stop thinking about it.

Ji Woon goes to his workspace and finds Hye Ji there. She tells him she’s packing and he tells her that she can keep it there is she’d like because it’s not like there is any other place for it. She tells him that she should stop getting help from him. She asks if he managed to meet with Ha Won and he tells her he did and their a couple. He informs her that no one else knows but he felt the need to tell her. He tells her that Hyun Min is actually the person who got her things back for her, but he gave him the key and told him to take her there. He admits that Hyun Min worries about her a lot.

Ha Won is walking when she notices Ji Woon and Hye Ji. She complains about him being so nice to Hye Ji and wonders if they aren’t compatible. She tries an app to see how compatible they are and it comes out at 90%. While she’s smiling at her phone, Ji Woon comes up and asks what she’s smiling about. She tells him that it’s none of his business. He admits that there is some thing he forgot to say about him being mean to her when she moved in. He apologises and tells her that his relationship with Hye Ji is nothing like his relationship with her. She starts to tell him about her relationship with Seo Woo but he tells her to forget about it since he over reacted. He takes her hand and she smiles. Ha Won’s stomach growls and he tells her to come with him.

Ji Woon brings her to the kitchen and starts to cook. Ha Na asks if he likes to cooking to which he replies that he’s going to try and like cooking because his girlfriend likes to eat. She tells him that it’s not the only thing that she likes to do and gets him to step aside. They end up cooking together and he makes a chicken for them. As they sit at the table, Ha Won compliments his cooing. She notices Seo Woo coming out and tells him to hide. He’s under the table when Seo Woo tucks in to eat with her.

Gi Sang (Seo Hyun Chul) gets a call from the informant and asks when he’s going to pay him. He explains what happened with Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) and Gi Sang takes down the information again. He goes to talk with Young Jin and is told what happened. Young Jin admits to being followed by debt collectors and he sold the dojo. That is the reason why his wife was there, to confront him. He tells him that He had been running home to hide from the debt collectors but the house was already on fire. His wife was inside trying to saving one of his  neighbours, she just didn’t get out in time. She was asked to give the neighbours son the ring that she was clutching when she died. Gi Sang takes this very hard and can’t believe that he hated Ha Won for no reason.

Ha Won sees Ji Woon and clears her throat to get his attention. Mrs Belgyo asks if she has a sore throat but she assures him she doesn’t. Ha Won texts Ji Woon and tells him to meet her in the storage unit.

Ji Woon arrives and she asks what took him so long and why  he didn’t get the cue. He mentions that the sound she made isn’t an actual noise but she tells him it means see me right now. He can’t believe that  they have to sneak around because of his grandfather. She asks why he doesn’t like his grandfather and he admits that he only came there to get answers about his mother. Since she never talked about his father he can only assume the parted on bad terms. She tells him to just ask his grandfather. He mentions that the only glimpse of his father that he has is the old camera he found. Ha Won insists on taking a picture with him. Right after that, she receives a phone call from her father.

Ha Won goes to meet with Gi Sang. He admits that everything was a huge misunderstanding on his part and she tells him not to worry about it. She tells that she trusted her mother. He tells her that she’s a better person than him and admits that he feels sorry for her and her mother. Ha Won tells him not to worry and that they should go home. He admits that he didn’t know about Soo Kyung and Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) harassment. He admits that it would be difficult if she is to come back now. He asks that she give him some time to make sure their family is a proper family. She tells him that she still has some work to do and can wait.

Gi Sang goes home and asks Soo Kyung about her visit with Young Jin. He tells her that Ha Won is his daughter not Young Jin. He also inquires as to how they’ve treat Ha Won and they both apologise. They get kicked out to the porch where Ha Won would sleep. Yoo Na wonders how she managed to sleep and Soo Kyung chalked it up to her having more fat than them.

Hye Ji is sitting in Ha Won’s bedroom looking at her brother’s birthday. Meanwhile Hyun Min is in his bed room looking at the same day but marked as Hye Ji’s birthday. He thinks back to when he found out that she was his friends fraternal twin and he promises to give her a present every year without fail. He can’t believe it’s already the following day.

The next day he is outside waiting when Hye Ji comes out. Hyun Min asks where she’s going, but she simply tells him that she has a lot of plan.

Yoon Sung picks up Hwa Ja and she asks the the chairman asked him to keep an eye on him. She wonders what she did wrong to have him doubt her. Yoon Sung admits that he doesn’t know nor is at the liberty of guessing. When they arrive he asks her to get out and she asks if they can have a meal together. He apologises and she understands. She pushes a box to him and asks for him to accept it as she had always wanted to buy him a tie when he got his first job and this is long overdue.

Hye Ji goes looking for a rooms at a dealer and after looking at one she gets a call from Hyun Min. He asks her what she’s going because it’s her birthday. She tells him that she’s meeting with friends and hangs up the phone. We pull out and we see Hyun Min sitting across the street in is car.

Chairman is coming back from somewhere and notices a couple on the side of the road. He smiles thinking what a good ge they are. When The man crosses he sees Ha Won, he turns to look at the man to find out that it’s Ji Woon. Chairman Kang is obviously pissed.

Screenshot 2016-09-23 23.47.39.png

Ji Woon and Ha Won return home and he sends her in first. She starts to walk ahead and sends him a little heart. He laughs and she shushes him. He pulls her into a hug and tells her that it feel nice and she readily agrees. Seo Woo is walking and notices them and also notices Yoon Sung. He hides them from sight complaining about a stiff after he bugs him for a message to which Yoon Sung agrees.

Seo Woo is trying to write but he can’t seem to gt it flowing so he goes to make himself a cup of coffee. Ha Won comes in and mentions that it smells good, so he offers to make her one. She agrees and asks him about a present for a boyfriend of her friend’s friend. He tells her that men don’t need gifts and all she needs to do is to be with them and smile like she is. After leaving Seo woo, Ha Won gets a call from the chairman to meet with her.

Hyun Min goes to check in Ha Won’s room to find a note from Hye Ji. He figures out that she left and goes searching for her.

The Chairman tells Ha Won that he’s disappointed in her and tells her that he’ll give her the options. Leave the skyhouse and he’ll support her like promised or see Ji Woon and have a romance that is uncertain.She doesn’t say anything but leaves. He thinks back to when he kicked Ji Woon’s mother out of the house and we see the ring that Ha Won keeps on his mother’s fingers. Ji Woon’s father is appalled that he kicked Ji Woon’s mother’s family out. He tells the chairman he looks Jung Soo and the chairman tells him that he obviously doesn’t agree. We see his son’s wedding ring. Kang pulls out the ring from his desk.

Hyun Min finds Hye Ji in the park. He tells her to go back to the sky house and she tells him that she’s going to live with her uncle. He admits to knowing that she was looking at student housing. She tells him how she felt every time he pushed her away. He admits to her his feeling for her and how he’s treasured her and lovers her so much. He also tells her what happened 10 years prior. He admits to have been with her brother the day he died. He was so scared and didn’t know what to do that he ran away. He tells her that he;s such a coward that they can’t be together. She tells him that she never wants to be in the same place as him and walks away crying.

Screenshot 2016-09-24 00.21.26.png

Ji Woon is freaking out because Ha Won isn’t answering her phone. He drops his phone and notices that it fell behind the padlocked gate.

Yoon Sung comes back and reports that there is nothing interesting and when the chair man turns around he sees the tie. He is suddenly suspicious of Yoon Sung. Yoon Sung asks if he should escort him home but the chairman says he’ll call driver Park.

Yoon Sung goes to meet with Hwa Ja.

Ji Woong gets into the other side of the storage and finds a photo album. He finds pictures of his mother and finds out that she lives at the sky house.

Hwa Ja thanks Yoon Sung for coming. She smiles sweetly at him and he smiles back. CEO Kang sees them and suddenly faints from shock. (It’s not what you think!)

Hye Ji is walking away sadly while Hyun Min is standing still in shock.

Ji Woong suddenly understands what happened to his mother.

Ha Won is packing.

4895_CinderellaAndFourKnights_Nowplay_Small

Ha Won (Park So Dam) is standing in front of her mother’s urn and thinks of what Young Jin said as well as her adoptive father (Seo Hyun Chul) told her. She asks her mother to tell her that it’s not true. She begins to cry and squats to the floor.

Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) pulls up to the memorial hall. He runs in to find Ha Won crying by herself. He admits that he was worried that she’d be crying by herself or in pain. She asks if it’s because she called earlier and tried to brush it off but he pulls her into a hug. He tells her that she doesn’t have to say anything and can cry if she has too. She breaks down and starts crying as he holds her.

Ms Belgyo tells Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) and Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) what happened. She tells them that she only let Young Jin in because he claimed to be her father but she called him mister through the entire meeting. Ms Belgyo admits that she doesn’t know what’s going on.

Ha Won tells Ji Woon that she suddenly has two fathers and finds it funny. He opens up about his past and admits that the year prior when Yoon Sung (Choi Min) found him and told him that he was Chairman Kang’s (Kim Young Geon) grandson. He admits that his mother never spoke of his father and he’s never seen his father. He likens his reaction at that time to her current emotional distress. He admits he might not understand everything but he has an understanding. She asks if he came to terms with it and he admits he never did. He’s lived his entire life as Han Ji Woon so he was sceptical. Ha Won agrees that it’s only natural and admits she was curious after Gi Sang told her that she wasn’t his real daughter. She admits that though she hoped her father said it out of anger she wondered if she did have a different biological father. She goes down the path of accepting the truth but Ji Woon tells her that she’s not ready to accept the truth yet and should wait until she’s mentally prepared. She thanks him and admits that she was scared to be by herself and had wished someone to be there with her and he appeared. He asks if she was happy to see him but she simply tells him that she thought that he had his uses.

Hye Ji (Son Na Eun) is walking and thinks back to Ji Woon’s apology in the car.

Ha Won and Ji Woon come home and when Ji Woon walks right past his door, Ha Won is confused. He opens her door and she smiles at him. He tells her to sleep well and she thanks him. They part ways, both very happy.

Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) tells Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) that she’s giving up on Hyun Min because she doesn’t need a man who has bad taste in women. Soo Kyung applauds her choice. Since she’s the one refusing Hyun Min, So Kyung asks for her to give up on the Hanuel group. She tells her that she’s just going to switch over to Seo Woo. She’s determined to win him over no matter what.

Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri) goes to see the chairman and asks why he left without telling her.  He tells her that he had a meeting over breakfast and she chastises him for not telling her sooner as she made breakfast. He apologises and when she asks about his health because he’s been quite he admits that he lied and he had gone to the bathhouse. When he mentions that he knows that she doesn’t like going, she tells him that it’s only because he goes so often and once a week is fine. He tells her that he’s been honest with her not it’s her time. He asks if there is anything that she wants to be honest about and admits that he will not get mad if she tells him now. She tells him that she has nothing to hide from him.

Ha Won gets a phone call telling her that there have been 2 monthly payments for her mother’s spot that month. Ha Won is confused and asks him to check who paid the other payment. He tells her that it’s someone by the name of Kang Young Jin. She doesn’t understand what’s going on. Just then, Seo Woo pokes his head in and tells her to come out.

Seo Woo makes her garlic spaghetti and tells her to eat since she didn’t have breakfast. She finds it tasty but when she looks over at Seo Woo she finds him watching over her. She chastises him for looking at her with so much concern. He admits that she’s always trying to fix their families problems but they haven’t done anything for her. She tells him that she’s fine since Ji Woon was with her. Seo Woo is surprised and she tells him that even though Ji Woon keeps telling her to go away he’s a nice person deep down. She mentions that she even got top star Seo Woo to cook her breakfast so there are some perks to working there.

Hyun Min is standing next to her door muttering she scares him and asks what he’s doing. He admits that he’s just standing there and makes sure that she’s eaten. She assures him that she has and when he mentions that he told Ji Woon that she was mentally strong she agrees. She walks into her room and he peeks in. His eyes fall on her tracksuit and his encounter with Hye Ji flutters through his mind. She asks if he’s not leaving and he tells her never to wear her sweats again.

Ji Woon is in his workshop thinking about his talk with Hye Ji in the car. He goes to the courtyard and finds Hye Ji working. He tells her that he’s sorry he just left her, but she tells him not to worry. She heard that something happened to Ha Won and it’s in his nature to make people feel better. He tells her that that wasn’t the reason he went to see Ha Won. He admits that he has special feelings for Ha Won and she flips out. She asks why he came to her if he had special  feelings for Ha Won. She asks why he didn’t just let her deal with everything on her own and not make her feel more pitiful. He tells her that she was the first person to open up to him when he arrived and he wanted to be nice to her and he apologised if that hurt her. She tells him that she really wanted to rely on him this time. He asks if she did or if she just became used to him being there instead of Hyun Min. He asks her to think if he would have been able to fill the hole that Hyun Min left in her heart.

Hyun Min watches the scene from his room and thinks back to when he first came back. Hye Ji hugged him and told him how much she missed him. He tells her that he didn’t miss her and tries to push her away. This led to Ji Woon and Hye Ji starting their relationship. Hyun Min seems conflicted on what to do next.

Young Jin looks at his bank book and the payment he made to the crematorium . He’s sure that Ha Won must feel confused but she should have called him about the payment he made. Ji Woon comes out and comes face to face with Young Jin.He asks if he’s Ha Won’s father, and he confirms he is.

Ji Woon takes him to a café to talk. He finally introduces himself and Young Jin lays on the praise thick. Ji Woon assures him that he’s not so great to be called young master. Ji Woon assures him that he is Ha Won’s friend and see her as part of the family. Young Jin pulls the pity card and thanks him for taking care of Ha Won when he couldn’t. Ji Woon admits that he knows everything  because Ha Won told him. Young Jin admits that he was debt-ridden was planning on coming back when he had the money to take care of Ha Won. He admits that his financial situation never got better so he never came. Ji Woon hands him a wad of 50,000 won bills (He easily gave him over 1 milling won) and tells him to take it and meet with Ha Won and get to know her. Young Jin refuses half-heartedly and then takes the money. Ji Won gives him his phone number and tells him to contact him if he needs anything.

Yoon Sung followed Hwa Ja to a meeting with the lawyer who is drafting the chairman’s will. Yoon Sung calls the lawyer but he doesn’t answer. The lawyer tells Hwa Ja that he got a call from Yoon Sung and if the chairman hears about him giving her this information there will be trouble. She tells him not to worry and gets handed a copy of the chairman’s will.

Yoon Sung makes a b-line for Hwa Ja and asks who she was meeting. She doesn’t tell her but he shows his hand. He takes the envelope and asks what she’s planning on doing with the will. She tells him that he just has to keep his mouth shut and when he asks for how long, she tells him until she has what she wants in her hand. He accuses her of throwing him away for money and she tells him that she’s doing it for him so he can have a future. (Um… Dude Yoon Sung is probably rich enough.) Yoon Sung tells Hwa Ji that if she planned on throwing him away she shouldn’t have come back. He also mentions that if she planned to come back she shouldn’t have come back looking so pathetic. Yoon Sung walks away and Hwa Ja makes a phone call asks the caller to set up a meeting with the board.

Ha Won is outside enjoying the fresh air when Young Jin texts her and asks if she got home safe. She thinks about the time that her friend was harassed and Young Jin stepped in as her father to chase the boy away. She decides to call him. He’s at the casino gambling Ji Woon’s money away. Ha Won asks if he’s eaten and offers to meet with him to have supper.

They meet up and he asks what she’s not meeting. She asks him about why he didn’t come to see her and he admits that he’s had financial troubles. He takes his hand and reminisces about their fun at the park and playing with her. She examines his jacket and tells him she’ll be back, she just needs to pick something up from a friend.

She goes to buy him some clothes and when she comes back she finds him going through her purse. She suddenly understands what’s happening. She comes back and puts her bag down. She asks if he’s still struggling financially. She only brings it up because that’s what he said earlier. He admits that he is and doesn’t have a house they can live together in. He asks if she could lend her money but she tells him she doesn’t have the kind of money. He wonders if she can ask Ji Woon and she immediately goes on the offensive. He tells her that he’s met with him at the house. He tells him that he’s so generous and gave him money to treat her to something special. She asks how much money he accepted and then tells him that she’ll ask him herself. Ha Won excuses herself.

Hye Ji is at a bar thinking about Ji Woon’s words and letting them sink in. Joon Soo comes over and can’t believe that she’s drinking alone. She invites him to drink with her. One of Hyun Min’s friends calls Hyun Min and tells him what’s happening. He asks if he’s really ok with that and Hyun Min hangs up but gets ready to head out.

Ji Woon is in his room looking at the little present when he picks up the phone to text Ha Won. After multiple attempts at sending a text, he puts down his phone and decided it’s bad timing to give her the present. He gets a call from Young Jin.

As soon as Ji Woon step outside Hyun Min is there. He asks where he’s going and if he’s going to get Hye Ji. Ji Woon asks where she is and Hyun Min tells him never mind. Ji Woon tells him that they should stop these games. He pitches Hyun Min the locker key and tells him that if he wants to take care of Hye Ji to just do.

Ha Won comes back and Ji Woon goes to see her. She tells him that she knows he gave her father money. She tells him that she wasn’t as lucky as Ji Woon to have been born into a rich family. Her first worry was how she was going to live if Young Jin was her father. She tells him that by giving him money it’s put her in an even more pathetic situation and tells him to never try and but into her business again. She walks away and he thinks back to the phone conversation. Ji Woon gets a call from Young Jin telling him that he really wants to live with Ha Won and wants to get a fully leased apartment in Seoul. The warning bells start going off in Ji Woon’s mind. He asks if Ha Won knows that he’s asking and Young Jin assures him she does. He agrees to meet him the following day but heads out right away.  (Ha Won would never approve.)

Ha Won is in her room, looking at her necklace and asks her mother if she really loved a man like that.

Ji Woon goes to the work site the following day and spies on Young Jin. When he throws out his paper cup, Ji Woon picks it up to do a DNA test.

Ha Won goes to the bank and looks at her bank book that has the note about paying for college. She thinks back to her conversation with Young Jin about living together.

Seo Woo does a radio interview and is asked about his song confession and about his first love. He admits that his first love is passing by him right now. When the hostess asks about the type of woman his first love is, he describes a headstrong tomboy who only wears skirts once in awhile. He adds on that even when a person like him confesses she goes straight to the person she loves.  The announcer admits that even though she doesn’t know who that woman is she’s jealous.

Yoo Na is preparing to meet with Seo Woo when she gets pushed away by some fans. Ja Young (Cho Hye Jung) happens to be part of the crowd. Yoo Na inquires to why she’s there and tells her that she’s a Seo Woo fan. Yoo Na complains about bad taste and Ja Young takes offence. Ja Young turns to Seo Woo and calls him Oppa and tells him that Yoo Na is Ha Won’s sister with the bad attitude. He takes her book and writes something before handing it back with a smile and tapping Ja Young on the shoulder. Ja Young is a little irate but starts laughing when the note reads to be nice to Ha Won. She tells Yoo Na that she’s on his hit list and should have been nicer to Ha Won sooner.

Hyun Min looks at the key and Ji Woon’s words pass through his mind. He thinks back to him and Hye Ji’s older brother playing. That was when he was hit by the car and killed. Hyun Min feels as if he’s guilty of killing Hye Ji’s brother which is why he can’t be with her. (Could we all see this coming?) He gets up and goes somewhere.

Ha Won hands Young Ji the money for her mother crematorium fee. She tells him that she has no reason to accept money from him. She tells him that she can’t accept him as her father and when he tells her that it doesn’t matter if she can accept him or not they are related. Ji Woon puts down and envelope between them and tells him that the results are in. They can check to see if he is really her father. Young Jin pushes it aside and asks if Ha Won trust him. Ji Woon asks if he wants to open it or if he should. Ha Won took the envelope and tore it. She looks at Ji Woon and tells him that she trusts her mother and she wouldn’t have loved a man like him. She tells Young Jin that she has no money so he’s come to the wrong person. She goes to leave and Young Jin tells them that he had no choice and had it not been for the fire his life wouldn’t have been ruined. Ha Won turns back around and fists her jacket it and says incredulously that his life was ruined. She tells him that he should think of the people who lost her life and people like her who were left behind. No matter what happened that day she never thought her life as ruined. The only person who ruined his life was him. She walks away and Ji Woon follows with a smile. He catches up before grabbing her hand tells her that they are reading for their drive.

Hyun Min comes out of his room and comes face to face with Hye Ji. She gets a phone call from Joon Soo agreeing to meet at the café nearby. She shows up and Joon Soo can’t believe she came. He asks if things are really over between her and  Hyun Min. She tells him that they were just friends. Hyun Min asks if that’s true and tells her to come with him. Joon Soo tries to stop him but Hyun Min mentions that he really should leave before the girl from the previous day calls. Joon Soo leaves and Hyun Min takes Hye Ji to his car. She tells him to either treat her like a human being or to leave her be. He admits he should if she would stop dating sketchy people after Ji Woon dumped her. She tells him to let her out and when does pull over he gets a beer and chugs it. He tells her that he can’t drive and gets in the passenger seat.

Seo Woo’s manager gets a call from a reporter asking about Seo Woo’s relationship status. He assures him that he’s not dating anyone and promises to come see him. Seo Woo asks who he’s supposed to be dating this time and is just grilled again about his relationship status. He assures him that he’s not in a relationship and he doesn’t have a first love. He mentions that he has no time to date.

Hye Ji turns out to be a horrible driver and is always asking Hyun Min for advice. She mentions that it’s her first time driving since getting her license.

Ji Woon is driving and asks Ha Won if she’s still mad. She apologises for how harsh she was. She admits that she was conflicted and took it out on him. She admits that she had thought about whether or not to believe Young Jin but when he put down the envelope she knew. She tells him that she believes in her mother and she would never love a man like him. He smiles and ruffles her hair a little. Ha Won mentions that it’s a little boring doing the same drive and Ji Woon takes it as a challenge.

Ji Woon takes Ha Won to a place to enjoy the ride through some rolling hills. Ji Woon asks if she still bored and she admits she’s not. She tells him that it’s the first time that anyone has taken her to a place like this.

While walking Ji Woon confesses that it’s the first time that he’s found someone that he found to be similar to him. Ha Won admits that she finds that they are very similar, however, he has a very particular personality and when someone gets close he tells them to go away. He asks if that’s true and she tells him it is. He hands her an empty box and she asks what it was. He tells her his feeling for her and she starts to walk away. He explains that it was supposed to be chocolates but they melted. So instead he tells her that it’s her and not Hye Ji that his heart belongs to. He thanks her for getting close and tells her to stay where she is because he will be the one to get closer to her from now on. He walks to her and kisses her. It takes a second before she kisses back.

We rewatch Hye Ji’s (Son  Na Eun) ‘confession’ to Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo). Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyeon) goes back into his room. Ha Won (Park So Dam) and Ji Woon are both in shock. When Ji Woon tries to talk, Hye Ji tells him that he doesn’t have to give her the answer right away and bids him goodnight. Ji Woon walks towards his room and Ha Won looks down at the watch. Their eyes meets and Ji Woon tries to go inside. Ha Won tells him that she wanted to give him back his watch and goes over to hand it to them. Everything is suddenly very awkward between them. Ha Won tells him that she believes that he won’t be able to sleep because he really liked Hye Ji. Unbenounced to her, Ji Woon is feeling torn since he developed feelings for Ha Won. Ha Won keeps talking but Ji Woon remains silent. She tells him goodnight and then goes back to her room.

Ha Won closes her door and the tears she was bottling up, puddled in her eyes. Ji Woon sits on his bed and replays Hye Ji’s words in his head. He thinks back to when they first met and he had been looking at an old camera when it went off accidently. He turns back around and goes into his workshop. Hye Ji follows him inside much to his chagrin. She asks who he is and if he took a picture of him. He tells her he did but doesn’t volunteer any information about himself.  He asks why she’s crying and tells her that if she’s going to continue crying he should do it in the workshop and he’ll leave. She is left alone and she takes the opportunity to cry. Ji Woon sits beside the door just like he used to do for his mother. He ended up falling asleep and Hye Ji draped her jacket over his shoulders as she left, thus waking him. He comes out of his memory and tucks into bed.

Hyun Min looks at the picture that he took of the smiley face that Hye Ji drew on his hand. After a moment, he turns and looks at the picture of him and the siblings as children.

Ja Young (Cho Hye Jung) confirms that this fictional person got a confession of the person they like. Ja Young asks if the girls pretty and when Ha Won confirms that she is, Ja Young confirms that another couple is born. Ha Won retorts that looks aren’t everything, but Ja Young would disagree. Ja Young calls Ha Won old-fashioned and tells her that people flirt and see where it leads them. Ja Young does mentions that if he had an unrequited love there might be a difference because he might have found someone else.

Ha Won goes to see Ji Woon in his workshop and finds him cleaning his tools. She closes the door quietly and turns to leave. She looks back at the door and tells herself that it’s impossible that he’s found another girl he likes because he’s always alone. She tells herself that the only other girl that’s by his side is… and then she trails off thinking about their shared kiss. She tells herself that there is no way that would be the case.

Ha Won goes into her room and puts a post up asking how to tell if a guy likes her. One commenter tells her that if he doesn’t get mad at her not matter what she does he likes her. She proceeds to do things to piss him off. She hits him with a book, bumps into his as to spill his orange juice, and rearranges his workshop. The last straw was his workshop. He storms into her room and accuses her. He doesn’t fall for the cute act. He tells her that if she’s bored to sleep and stop being a nuisance. She tells him that he didn’t worry about her even once while she was sick. He asks if she’s a kid and tells her once again to stop being a nuisance. He leaves and Ha Won is sure he doesn’t have feelings for her.

Hye Ji gets ready to leave and looks at the childhood photo one more time. She texts Ji Woon to meet up. She checks the mail before she leaves and goes to her car. Hyun Min watches her leave while thinking about her last comment to him. Hyun Min goes to Hye Ji’s studio and waits for her to show up. He asks to talk, but she has nothing to say to him. He tells her that she shouldn’t use Ji Woon to get to him. She tells him that it’s a weak argument. Hyun Min asks what other reason she could be acting like this. She tells him that she realised that it’s was Hyun Min by her side but rather Ji Woon. Just then Ji Woon arrives and asks Hyun Min what brings him there. As Ji Woon has plans with Hye Ji he excuses them from Hyun Min. Hyun Min watches them go inside the studio.

Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) puts breakfast on the table and tells Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) to eat. Yoo Na asks if she’s made any progress with Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri) and Soo Kyung assures her that she’s working very hard. She tells her that she’s given Hwa Ja extra minutes of massage and complains about how thick her arms have gotten. Yoo Na tells her mum to just wait until she’s married into the Sky House and she’ll get her all the botox she wants. Soo Kyung mentions that there were rumours floating around that it wasn’t her first marriage, but she supposes that given her status it would be weird if there weren’t rumours circulating about her. Yoo Na suggests that this might be the perfect way to get on her good side and be the person to give Hwa Ja the low down of all of the gossip about her. Soo Kyung thinks that it’s an excellent idea.

Ji Woon walks into the studio and starts unpacking the fabric. Hye Ji asks if there isn’t anything that he wants to ask her about the previous night. He does have one question and he asks if she really meant it. After Hyun Min’s words replaying in her head she tells him she did.

Hyun Min arrives home and heads straight to bed. His encounter with Ji Woon replays in his mind and he gets frustrated. Hyun Min looks up and sees Ji Woon’s light on.

Ha Won sits up in bed and wonders why she’s going around in circles. She decides to simply ask him what girl he likes and be over with it.

Hyun Min goes into Ji Woon’s room and picks up a model car and drops it. Right when he steps on it, Ha Won calls to him. They sit down and she starts berating him for breaking it. She tells him that he should tell Ji Woon what he did because he loves his models and she’s certain that he’ll treat it like murder. (You know this is going to blow up in Ha Won’s face right.) This excites Hyun Min and looks for something else to break. Ha Won asks if he’s acting that way because of Hye Ji. Ha Won asks if he’s really ok with them dating and Hyun Min tells her to stop asking. He suddenly realises that she came into Ji Woon’s room as well. He asks why she was there and when she doesn’t answer he tells her that Ji Woon is with Hye Ji.

Ha Won is lying on the couch when Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) comes in. He tells her that he only has one thing to do that day and asks if she wants to hand out afterwards. She tells him that she’ll pass and when he asks if something is wrong she asks about men’s preferences when it comes to women. Seo Woo is confused as to why she brought up Hye Ji and mentions that he finds her prettier. This perks Ha Won up and tells him that he’s good at flattery.

Ji Woon is sitting in his car thinking about what Hye Ji said. about her proposition. He looks over to see a bread vendor and Ha Won’s words played through his mind. He doesn’t bother getting anything for her.

Ha Won’s Mother’s business partner talks idly about the Hangul group and their wealth.

Seo Woo goes to an interview and gets asked about the final track on the album called confessions. She asks if he thought of someone specific while writing the track. His manager assures her that isn’t the case. Seo Woo gets given a gift from the magazine company. It’s a trivet that when you place a hot mug on it, words appear.

Hwa Ja comes back with the chairman’s (Kim Yong Geon) medicine and chastises him for not taking care of his health more. He tells her not to worry and she perks up. Yoon Sung (Choi Min) enters and he asks why he was called. Kang tells him that it’s nothing big but he requests him to take care of Hwa Ja the following day at her meeting as he hasn’t found someone adequate to work with her. Hwa Ji apologies for adding to his workload. He agrees though he doesn’t want to because he respects Kang.

Screenshot 2016-09-10 17.29.06.png

Seo Woo is making coffee to see what the trivet says but Ha Won comes in and surprises him. He spills his coffee and when she asks if he’s ok, he assures her that he is ok and rushes into his room. Ha Won wonders what’s going on and then notices his album on the counter. She realises that the following day is when his new song drops and puts that up to why he’s so jumpy.

Seo Woo is in his room and can’t believe that she scared him. She calls to him and he turns around. She walks in and hands him the album and apologises for forgetting that his song  drops that following day. She shows him her phone with a countdown as proof that she didn’t forget on purpose. He tells her that the album was for her anyways. She tells him that since she was going to get a preview if she could have a live preview. He tells her no but she best and tries to cheer him on. Finally, he gives in and sings it to her. He starts to sing the love song while looking her in the eyes. She suddenly feels self-conscious about it and tells him to stop. She promises to listen t it after midnight because she feels bad about listening to just a good song alone. She leaves him and wonders how he could sing that song while looking at her but just brushes it off to his showmanship.

Ji Woon arrives home grabs a bakery bag from the car. He heads to see Ha Won but he passes by Hyun Min who taunts him. Ji Woon asks if he felt like he lost something after Hye Ji asked him out. He tells Hyun Min that he’s lost to him this time. When Hyun Min explodes Ji Woon tells him that it shows him he’s regretting his decision. He warns him not to cling to Hye Ji until he regrets it even more.

Screenshot 2016-09-10 18.22.08.png

Ji Woon finds Ha Won in the kitchen and asks what she’s doing. She asks her if he went somewhere and he hands her a bakery bag. She asks if it’s for her and he confirms. He tells her that now that he’s bought her something she has to calm down. She agrees and he leaves her. She makes some hot cocoa and places her cup on Seo Woo’s trivet. She goes to her room to eat the cupcake that Ji Woon bought her happily. She picks up her cocoa and goes outside and on the trivet we see the word confession.

Seo Woo is sitting in his room and he looks down to the lyrics he wrote out. The subtitle says to Ha Won, but he decides to cross it out.

Hyun Ji goes t a bar and drinks a lot of alcohol. His flavour of the week comes over and asks him why he’s drinking so much. He tells asks her if she can like someone other than him and she says she can’t. He goes off about Hye Ji without mentioning  her name and complains that she’s acted like she’d never leave him. He can’t believe she’s leaving him now and doesn’t want her too. His girlfriend thinks he’s talking about her.

Yoon Sung frets over Ha Won until she tells him to stop. She tells him that he’s repeated himself 5 times over. He wants to see her off and Ha Won asks if he wants her to bring someone with her. She goes to see Ji Woon and can’t believe she’s asking him to he her escort. She tells him the both Yoon Sung and Seo woo are busy and she hasn’t seen Hyun Min since the previous night. He tells her no and even when she tries to pull the sad puppy act it doesn’t work.

Screenshot 2016-09-10 18.35.54.png

Hwa Ja leaves the building and Yoon Sung acts as he always does, very professional. When they arrive he tells her that he will wait outside but she asks him to come in. She introduces him to a woman who admits that she wasn’t happy that she was coming to the marriage meeting but is happy she did. He clicks into what’s going on and leaves. She asks what he’s doing and he tells her what he’s suppose to. She tells him that as his mother she wants him to marry well.  (Who else called that?) He asks if that’s why she’s using the Chairman for. She says that she’s done everything for him and he tells her not to use him as an excuse. He tells her that he’ll pretend like nothing happened in accordance to a previous promise they made. Hwa Ja looks at her son and remembers when she was introduced to Yoon Sung during a dinner with the chairman. As Yoon Sung drove her home she talks about it being 12 years since she last saw him. He advises her that she’s mistaken him for someone else because his mother died 12 years prior. She tells him that if he’s lived that way than he can continue doing so. She mentions that she told Kang that she was never married so Yoon Sung tells her that he’s not the only one who erased someone from their memory. She asks him to act like he doesn’t know her because she can live like a woman if he doesn’t that for. He doesn’t answer by a lone tear slid down his cheek.

Ha Won comes out of the house to see Ji Woon waiting for her. She asks if he’s not going to open the door and when he says no she teases him and tells him it’s fine. He stows the crutches and opens her door. She milks it as much as she can.

They get to the doctors and he tells her that she’s completely healed. He tells her that they can remove the cast. Ji Woon smiles as if to say I knew you were lying. He confirms that she’s no longer limited by her leg and the doctor assures him she’s not. They leave and she asks why he’s acting so standoffish. He tells her that he didn’t like being dragged there by someone under false pretenses. She tells him that up until a few moments ago she was still a patient. He tells her that she can find her own way home. She gets mad and asks him if it’s really so hard to come with her. He tells her that it was just a joke but she runs away. She notices once out of the hospital that she left her bag in the car and starts walking.

Ji Woon starts looking for her and wonders where she’s gone. He finds her walking and tells her to get in. She tells him that she will find her own way home even if it is by bus or subway. He asks if she has any money to do that and shows her her bag. She tells him that she was planning to walk and he ridicules her. She tells him that she’s in for a nice walk and him a long drive. He tells her to do the drive with him and get out to open the door. She tells him that if he really wants her too she’s take the drive with him and gets in. He smiles at the banter and gets in. Ha Won has a blast during the drive with Ji Woon. He smiles and laughs along with her.

Hyun Min is with his friends and winning at pool. His friends wonder what happened and then his phone goes off. They ask if he’s not going to answer and he tells them to turn it off. They offer to answer and Hyun Min repeats himself. As soon as they hang up Hye Ji calls back. Hyun Min looks over at his phone. Hye Ji calls him with tears in her eyes while men are coming to collect on her father’s things.

Ha Won and Ji Woon go to a mountainside temple and she finds it beautiful. She keeps saying it and Ji Woon stands beside her smiling. He gets thirsty so he grabs her drink and starts drinking it. When she protests he tells her that he finished his already. She looks at his lips and remembers the kiss they shared whilst drunk. Ji Woon asks whats with her expression is and she asks what’s wrong with it. He pulls her close and asks if there is something he wants to ask her. She tries to asks if he has a girl he likes but Hye Ji calls. He tells her that he’ll be right over and hangs up. He tells Ha Won that they need to leave.

Screenshot 2016-09-10 19.14.09.png

Ha Won asks where he’s going and when she doesn’t say anything she knows that he’s going to see Hye Ji. She tells him to let her out and he tells her that she’s crazy he’ll drop her off. She tells him that Hye Ji is waiting and he pulls to the side. Ha Won gets out of the car with a heavy heart. Ji Woon apologises as she gets out of the car. He drives off and Ha Won doesn’t let any tears fall until she is safely on the bus.

Ji Woon arrives and Hye Ji tells him that her house is going to be sold for foreclosure and her father was taken in for questioning. She’s not sure what she should do.
