I swear this series sure knows how to tug at heartstrings! I was almost disappointed with Jeon Seol’s (Im Soo-jung) seemingly obvious plan of leaving our hero writer Han Se-joo (Yoo Ah-in) behind after seeing his face as the person she “killed” in the past. We are not even sure of it yet, and I understand Seol for being so afraid that she might bring danger to Se-joo. The oh-so-perfect “goodbye” date has been overused in K-drama tropes that it gets so tiring to watch it again. Good thing Se-joo figured it out sooner than later, even tracing correctly where Seol’s lies originated. Our hero saves the day.

We are treated with more flashbacks in this hour, specifically on the participation of Baek Tae-min in the 1930s Kyungsung. We all know him now as Heo Young-min, a spy who used to work for the Japanese government. Things are still blurry as to his possible participation in Shin Yul’s (Go Kyung-pyo) death, or how he contributed to the fallout of the trio.

I admire Se-joo more and more as time goes by, not only because of his growing relationship with both Seol and Yoo Jin-oh (also Go Kyung-pyo), but also because of the development in his character as a person. He gave Tae-min a shot at redemption, and although coldness still lingers in his facade, his effort to visit the Baek family for lunch is an improvement. And since now the ball is in Tae-min’s hands, Se-joo is ready to let go of the past that has been haunting him for years.

We also see some plot development in this episode after the sister of Se-joo’s stalker-fan who died in Episode 2 made her appearance. Seems like she is avenging her brother’s death, and there is a great possibility that she will team up with Tae-min regarding her evil plans.

And finally, my heart aches for our lovely ghost! I cried with him during his interaction with Bang-jin’s shaman mother. Yes, it is true that humans should live like humans and ghosts should remain as ghosts, but I still feel saddened that it made Jin-oh so disheartened. While Bang-jin’s mother only gave some real talk, I really hope our ghost would not give up on his mission to be visible to Seol.
