Another Podcast. Another drama dissected with Natalia. We had some fun talking about this drama.
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.

She admits to feeling both apologetic and grateful.

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. He wants to ask her to stay by his side, but she doesn’t want to and believes that family matters should be resolved amongst family members.

He tells her that he doesn’t care what the reason is or what she’s done but he wants her to stay by his side. Ha Won is fighting back tears when he hugs her from behind. A few tears run down her cheek and she nods.
Hhyun Min is in his room and he picks up his phone. He contemplates calling Hye Ji but decides against it.

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.

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.
Hwa Ja asks the lawyer to throw and emergency shareholder meeting to removes the chairman from his position and she assures him that Yoon Sung is already working on it. Hyun Min overhears the conversation. Before leaving the hospital, Hyun Min calls someone and is informed that he was right and Hwa Ja’s stocks were transferred to Yoon Sung.
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.
Ha Won wakes Ji Woon up to go for a wake but he wants to sleep. She tells him that she can’t have him gain any weight before surgery. 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.
Hyun Min pulls up, across the street from Hye Ji’s store and wonders why he came. He drives off.
Ja Young (Cho Hye Jung) brings Seo Woo to a pizza joint. He tells her that he doesn’t feel like eating and she drags him in anyways because he’s lost weight. 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. Soo Kyung mentions that Yoo Na has no job and she can’t even keep a part-time one. Just then, Soo Kyung gets a call on her cell and is surprised by it.
Ji Woon is being prepped for surgery and when the nurse leaves Ha Won takes his hand. She smiles down at him and he smiles up at her.
The shareholder meeting commenced with Hyun Min sitting opposite Yoon Sung and Hwa Ja. The voting process is shown and they are about to reveal the results.
Ji Woon and the chairman are wheeled into surgery and prepped. Someone starts to haemorrhage and more doctors are pulled in to help. Ha Won is sitting there looking at her phone when this happens.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 the scene where Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) tells Ha Won (Park So Dam) and Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Shin) that Hye Ji (Son Na Eun) is going to be staying with them for a while.
Ha Won invites Hye Ji into her room and Hye Ji apologises for barging in. Ha Won tells her it’s fine but Hye Ji is worried that she’ll be uncomfortable because of her. Hye Ji puts down her bag and tells Ha Won how grateful she was that Ji Woon came running, after all, that’s what he always does. Hye Ji leaves Ha Won alone in her room.
Hyun Min tries t save face in front of Hye Ji but she tells him that he was a step behind Ji Woon again that day. She walks away and we can see that her comment hurt him deeply.
Ha Won is preparing the bed when Ji Woon comes in holding Hye Ji’s purse. He tells her that Hye Ji left it behind and Ha Won tells him to leave it on the table. She gives him the cold shoulder, hurt by the turn of events. Ji Woon starts inquiring on her trip home and she gives him concise answers without giving him much information. He asks her to take care of Hye Ji for him and after he leaves she wonders aloud if Hye Ji is the only person he cares for. Ji Woon seems confused after their exchange.
The next morning Ha Won wakes up to find Hye Ji’s side of the bed empty. She comes out to find Ms Belgyo muttering about it being strange. She asks what up and why it’s so quiet and Ms Belgyo assures her there is a reason for that. Ms Belgyo tells her about Seo Woo (Lee Jong Shin) waking up and finding Hye Ji at the table. He wondered why she was there, but she doesn’t give him an answer. When Hye Ji mentions he looks different he realises that he’s in his PJs and runs back to his room. She tells Ha Won about the asking Hyun Min about his underwear in front of Hye Ji and him running away. She finally tells her about how Hye Ji waited for Ji Woon to come back from his run and gave him a glass of water as well as mopped his sweat. Ha Won tells her that it was like that when she first came and Ms Belgyo is quick to refute that claim. She informs her that the boys never changed how they acted for her, however, Ms Belgyo suspects it’s because Hye Ji is such a looker. She compliments her and this seems to hurt Ha Won.
Ha Won heads back to her room complaining out loud that she’s a woman too and there isn’t much of a difference between Hye Ji and her. She notices Hye Ji outside with the window blowing her hair just so. She looks down at herself and agrees that they are quite different.
She’s colouring and muttering about all men being the same when she notices a passage written on the previous page. It reads: “Your own inherent charm will attract the one fated to be with you.” She tells herself she has plenty of charm already. She takes her time to get dressed and goes to the living room. Seo Woo is watching TV but when he turns to her he drops the remote. He mentions that she looks different and when she asks if she looks weird he tells her he doesn’t know and wants to call the other. Ji Woon comes out but when he lays his eyes on her he quickly looks away. Ha Won runs out of the room and Seo Woo mentions that Ha Won is acting weird.
Ji Woon is in his workshop thinking about Ha Won and wonders if she’s still mad at him.
Kang (Kim Young Geon) tells Hwa Ja (Kim Hye Ri) To stop taking pictures of the food and to eat. She tells him that she wants to cherish the memories of eating with him. She tells him that she has a gift for him. She gives him a shirt and he remembers back to the tie she was buying. Now he suspects everything is not as it should be. When they leave she tells him that she wants to come back and when she asks why he’s staring he tells her it’s because she’s beautiful.
Hye Ji goes to the police station to try and see her father. The police officer that she speaks with tells her that it’s not possible. He tells her that she should come back after she tries to give him a lunch for her father.
She comes back to the sky house and calls her uncle. She tries to get his help but he tells her he’s busy. She apologises for calling and hangs up. Hyun Min overhears her conversation and calls his friend.
He meets his friend at the bar and he tells him that he owes him for this one. He tells him that the judge is his uncles senior and he promises to put in a good word. He hands him a letter from Hye Ji’s father. He tells him that with charges like embezzling, Hye Ji won’t be able to show her face anywhere again because of the humiliation. Hyun Min cracks and throws his glass at the wall. He turns to his friend and reminds him that his father set up his law firm after being charged with corruption. His friend warns him not to say another word, but he reminds him that it’s the same humiliation he’s talking about. He takes the note and leaves.
Hyun Min arrives and finds Hye Ji in the living room. He tells her that she doesn’t have to worry anymore. He walks over to her and hands her the note. He tells her that her father wanted her to have that. She asks what happens and he tells her that there isn’t anything he can’t do. She tells him that she doesn’t feel comfortable accepting help from him but she thanks him for the note anyways. She leaves a very hurt Hyun Min in the living room.
Hyun Min goes into Ji Woon’s room and throws him a key. He tells him that Hye Ji’s things are there and he should get them. Ji Woon seems taken back by the demand, but Hyun Min tacks on to not let Hye Ji know that it was him who got it. Ji Woon finds the situation quite amusing.
Hyun Min walks out of the house and Ha Won wonders if he and Ji Woon got into a fight again. She seems to notice something else. Hye Ji is outside reading her father’s letter and crying when Ji Woon comes out. Ha Won walks to the window and looks at the pair of them.
The next morning Hye Ji is making breakfast and Ji Woon tells her that they’re going out. He gives her 30 minutes to get ready. They go to the storage bay and opens one filled with her things. She asks how this happened and he starts to say that it was Hyun Min but stop. She thanks him and we can tell that he doesn’t like taking the credit deserved for Hyun Min. He tells her to just grab what she needs because it would be too hard to bring everything back. He tries to tell her about Hyun Min against but she cuts him off and offers to buy him something to eat.
Ji Woon takes her to the convenience store and makes her ramen. She asks if he really wanted to eat that and he admits that he did. She asks if he’s eaten it a lot and if so with who and he admits the Ha Won loves that specific ramen. Hye Ji mentions that he’s gotten close to her and wonders if him being nice to Ha Won is the same as him being nice to Hye Ji. He admits that he hasn’t thought about it and goes to get coffee. He notices a little display of white day items and picks one up. He puts it in his pocket and when he sits down Hye Ji notices it.
Ms Belgyo sets the table for Ha Won and she asks about the others. She’s been informed that Seo Woo is at work and Ji Woon is out with Hye Ji went out that morning. Ha Won is surprised about they leaves and Ms Belgyo mentions that she thought he knew. She feels sad for Ha Won because ever since Hye Ji has come she’s been left alone. She can’t imagine how Ji Woon’s personality has taken a 180 flip. When Ms Belgyo wonders if Ji Woon only cares about Hye Ji Ha Won escapes by seeing if Hyun Min is in his room.
Ha Won goes into Hyun Min’s room and asks him to eat. He doesn’t want to and finally she has to turn off his tv to get him to come out and eat with her. He tries to get mad at her but she tells him that she doesn’t want to eat alone. He tells her to the lead the way and she thanks him. He tells her that he was about to win and she tells him the reverse.
He mentions that the portion of food that she’s eating has tripled and she tells him that her heart feels empty not her stomach. He asks if she misses being his fake fiancée. She tells him to be quiet. When he mentions that if she wants someone to not talk then asks Ji Woon to sit with her. She admits that Ji Woon left with Hye Ji that morning. Hyun Min sits back down and wonders where they went. She finds it funny that he’s suddenly interested when it comes to Hye Ji. He denies it but she tells him that he’ll have indigestion if he mulls it over by himself. He asks her if she’s sad that they’re leaving her out and she claims that she’s not being left out. He points out that she’s eating alone and starts to act immature. He tells her to got back to eating.
Ji Woon and Hye Ji return home and bump into Hyun Min and Ha Won. Hye Ji tells Hyun Min that Ji Woon helped her find her things that were in her studio. Hyun Min and Ji Woon’s eyes meet but not a word was exchanged before he walks away. Ha Won is soon to follow. Ji Woon offers to put the items in storage.
Hyun Min looks at the photo of the smiley face again when Ji Woon comes in. He tells him that this is the last time that he’ll do that for him. Hyun Ji admits that he’ll ask him to do more nice things for Hye Ji. When Ji Woon asks why he doesn’t do it he admits that he doesn’t have the right to take care of Hye Ji. He can hurt her but no tend to her wounds. Ji Woon asks if he intends to continue to do nice things for her and pretend that it was him who did it. Hyun Min reminds him that taking care of Hye Ji is what he’s always been doing. Hyun Min feels that Hye Ji will feel no pressure if she thinks Ji Woon was taking care of her. Ji Woon admits that he’s not doing it for him but rather for Hye Ji whom he treasures. Ji Woon warns him to not make Hye Ji cry anymore.
Ha Won is walking outside talking to herself. She hopes that Hye Ji and Ji Woon has a great relationship and tries push Ji Woon out of her mind. He shows up and asks her who she’s talking to. She asks what he’s doing there and tells her to go take care of Hye Ji or something. He mentions that she seems disappointed that all his attention is being focused on Hye Ji recently. Ha Won, obviously, denies that. He apologises for leaving her behind and she asks him why he’s bringing it up again. He goes to give her a gift but then asks her when she has time. She asks why and he mentions that it was to finish the drive they stopped half way through. When he wonders if she doesn’t want to go, she assures him that she does want to go. He admits that he wants to tell her something as well. He excuses himself and just out of sight he pulls the little gift out and comments on how he couldn’t give it to her in the end.
Ha Won is thinking about what Ji Woo could have meant by saying that he wants to talk when Seo Woo comes over. He asks why she’s thinking about and she tells him that it’s nothing. He asks if it’s because she’s sharing a room with Hye Ji and she assures him that it’s not that. He tells her to be nice to her while she’s there because she’s a little pitiful having lost her house and her father coming up with charges. He tells her to just be herself and helpful.
Hye Ji starts to get some laundry ready and Ha Won wants to help. She tells her that she feels like she hasn’t helped her with anything since she came. She ends up messing up and shrinking her clothes. Hye Ji mentions that it’s no big deal and Ha Won offers her her sweats to wear. Hye Ji assures Ha Won that it’s no big deal and she’ll go out with Ji Woon clothes shopping. She admits that she confessed her feeling to Ji Woon and asks if Ha Won knows. She tells her about how Ji Woon was always there for her when she was having issues with Hyun Min. She tells her that since Ji Woon has always been by her side she wants to try and go out with him. Ha Won asks if he’s given her an answer and she tells her yes. She mentions that she thinks that Ji Woon has the same feeling as she does.

She tells her that she’s heard she’s been talking behind her back and warns her if she heads about it again there will be consequences.
Ha Won is sitting in bed thinking about all of the times that she’s spent alone with Ji Woon, as well as their kiss. When Hye Ji’s words of trying to go out with Ji Woon passes through her mind she sighs giving up all hope she had for going out with him.
Hye Ji goes to the storage locker and is soon followed by Ji Woon. He asks what wrong and she assures him it’s nothing. She tells him that she needs to buy a few things the following day and asks him to come with her. He quickly agrees.

When she gets home. Soo Kyung is crying and Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) asks what’s wrong. She tells Yoo Na that she did something dumb because of her. She admits that she was just trying to marry off her daughter and ended up getting fired. Soo Kyung is worried about getting another job and Yo Na is worried about not being able to get to meet anyone from the Hanuel group.
Hwa JA is getting her nails done when Yoon Sung walked past the door. The nail artist asks if everything is ok and she says it’s fine she just thought she saw someone. We pan out to see Yoon Sung standing outside the door. We get an unnecessary flashback to earlier in the episode telling him to tail the chairman’s wife.
Hye Ji comes out of the shower wearing Ha Won’s track suit and heads to the kitchen. Hyun Min sees the back of her and thinks it’s Ha Won. He wonders if a parisite is living in Ha Won’s gut if she’s going back for more food. He goes over and places his hand on her head and tells her that she should finish drying her hair before eating. He absent-mindedly wonders how long it’s been since she had an orange. He looks at her in shock and pulls away grabbing the towel. He apologises and admits that he thought she was Ha Won. Hye Ji grabs her towel and walks away.
Ha Won steps outside and goes to knock on Ji Woon’s door but he’s not there. She’s looking into his room when Hye Ji comes out. Ha Won asks if she’s going somewhere and she tells her that she’s going out with Ji Woon.
Hye Ji gets in the car and Ji Woon notices he’s forgotten his wallet. He jokes about her paying for everything and tells her he’ll be right back. She sits there thinking of Ha Won’s reaction to her confession.
Ha Won is pissed that they are going on a date and notices Ji Woon run back in. He goes to his room and pulls his wallet out. He notices the gift for Ha Won and pulls it out with a smile. Ha Won comes in and he hides the items behind his back. She apologises for not noticing earlier and she couldn’t believe she made the misunderstanding. He admits that he doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. She tells him to please not do anything to cause the misunderstanding again. Ha Won walks out back and tries to stifle her embarrassment.
Young Jin arrives at sky house while ha Won is walking. When Ha Won arrives, Ms Belgyo tells her that her father is there to see her. She is excited and runs into the dining room. She is confused when she sees the man and he tells her that he’s Young Jin, the man who ran the taekwondo studio with her mother. She suddenly remembers him but is still confused.
They take their conversation to her room and she brings her tea. She asks him what brings him there to see her and thought he tries to slow it down she asks about what her mother told her about her biological father.
Ji Woon is driving and pulls over to the side of the road. He replays Ha Won’s words in his mind. Hye Ji asks why he suddenly pulled over and he inquires as to if she had said something to Ha Won. She admits that she told Ha Won that she wanted to try going out with him and that she thought that he probably felt the same way. He sighs and she asks if it’s not true and then thought it was so since he rushed over to her. He apologises and tells her she’ll have to go alone that day and he’d see her at home. Hye Ji gets out of the car.
Ha Won spills her tea and Young Jin goes to check if she’s burned. She is shocked that he’s her real father and mentions that he and her mother were always friends. He admits that he’s always felt bad towards her father who raised her. He tells her that now that they are together they shouldn’t live apart. She tells him to leave and when he doesn’t she does. He calls to her from his crouched position and it’s quickly followed by Ms Belgyo’s calls.
