The turning point of the story actually happened in this episode.
Not knowing why he went after Hye Jin who was in car trouble, Sung Joon hurriedly and anxiously looked for Hye Jin. It was a surprise and a bit perplexing for Hye Jin to see Sung Joon to where she was. And of course, the tight embrace he gave her as if he was really relieved to see her safe.
My heart squeezed for Shin Hyuk who witnessed the scene. I know he is only the second lead guy, but I think the writer has made him so much adorable that he deserve to win the lead girl, too, as much or more than the lead guy. Mianhae, but at this point, I think it would be hard to persuade my heart to change it's bias just because Sung Joon happens to realize that he is finally noticing Hye Jin.
Even if Shin Hyuk drove the speed limit of his motorcycle, still, he was late coming. It was like his efforts are not enough to make it in time to see Hye Jin first. But don't worry Shin Hyuk, your effort was amazing. And to think he got hurt hurrying to her.
That night, it was as if Sung Joon confessed to Hye Jin how he came to like her. It was baffling but of course, it fluttered her heart. He drove her home and the time to confess who she was did not come. But she wanted to tell him so she come after him but found him with Ha Ri. It was confusing why Ha Ri would met Sung Joon and that's how she realized Ha Ri had been seeing him all along as Hye Jin. She seemed concerned for Sung Joon. Hye Jin left.
Sung Joon also had no time for Ha Ri [Hye Jin] and with a burdened heart let her go knowing he would no longer care for her as what he promised before. At this point, his heart has gone to another woman.
Hye Jin and Shin Hyuk met. Actually, he went to find her at the bus terminal where she stayed long after the buses stopped running for the night. She told him about Ha Ri. Shin Hyuk never told her about how he got hurt, though. He even lied about the car he drove.
Next day, Sung Joon was acting familiar with Hye Jin like a close friend while she was getting uncomfortable. She was not ready for this change of attitude towards her.
She used Shin Hyuk as an excuse to get away from him. And that's how Awkward they became in the office. It continued to be that way every time Sung Joon comes to her.
Sung Joon was a bit confused why she seemed uncomfortable... when he clearly wanted to be close to her.
Shin Hyuk told Ha Ri that Hye Jin already knows her secret. At home, Ha Ri became uncomfortable with Hye Jin. She thanked her for waiting for her. She still has no courage to talk about it.
The ending was a revelation.
Hye Jin learned about Shin Hyuk getting hurt because of her. He embraced her as a favor.
Sung Joon heard the real name of "Hye Jin" as Ha Ri. Finally, the secret is out. The real identity is disclosed. It was somehow a nightmare for Ha Ri to be found out like that by Sung Joon. She has been finding the right time to tell him, but he found out this way.
I feel sad for Ha Ri. I don't dislike her. Actually, I really like her. She may have been dishonest about her identity to Sung Joon but it was a mistake that she was forced to do. She is no greedy. I know she hoped for something with Sung Joon but she has always known that it will only be temporary. And for this thoughts, I feel pity for her.
