While Jung doesn’t confirm it, he adds that if Inha quits his job at the academy, he might save Inha from being homeless.

Seeing Euntaek holding Bora’s hand while sleeping, Jung wraps a blanket and gets some snacks for Seol. Jung quietly sits next to Seol and holds her hands, eventhough he himself doesn’t know how to be a good boyfriend.

Seol awakes and wraps the blanket around Jung. Just then the doctor reveals that Bora’s father has overcome the dangerous situation and is resting at the recovery room. Now Seol and Jung can go back home while Euntaek wants to stay with Bora. OMG this couple makes me go insane because of their cutenesses!

Jung and Seol decide to say things out as they are having some misunderstanding about each other. I like this moment the best, when Jung doesn’t hide anything and tells Seol the truth, and Seol, although her feeling is worse than a simple misunderstanding, she still accepts Jung’s words and let go all the bad thinkings about Jung that she had before. The two promise to be nice with each other from now on.

Next day, Seol bumps into Inho, who is sweeping the floor, at the academy. Inho tells Seol to get away from him because Seol is Jung’s girlfriend. Seol thinks that Inho is a jerk and that she will get away from Inho.

It seems like the couple is getting along in happiness. Seol asks Jung out for dinner because she’s just got paid.

Seol tells Jung that she hadn’t contacted much with Inho and tells him not to worry about that anymore. Jung replies gently: “Tell me right away if something happens”. Seol maybe a kind of person who worries about other’s feeling much more than herself. It seems like she would rather hide her feeling than make other feel angry, especially Yoo Jung.

Jung asks Seol out for a bar and they meet Yoo Jong. Yoo Jong figures out that Jung and Seol are dating and that Yoo Jong tells them why he leaves home for a more comfortable life. 

Inho heads home and realizes a mysterous guy with a brick heading to Seol’s house. He follows and that he sees TA Heo collapsed on the floor, which means the mysterious guy had attacked TA Heo! He called the police and takes TA Heo to the hospital.

Back to the couple, after taking Yoo Jong home, Seol accidentally strips a step and ends up falling into Jung’s arms. What a romantic scene! Seol feels embarrassed and wonders if she could ask Jung in for a cup of coffee, but Jung (maybe) reads her mind and refused.

TA Heo gets angrier as Seol reminds him of Jung, the one who threatened him to throw away the report and made Seol get the scholarship. Seol was confused and that she gets angry as she knows what Jung did to her. 

 Seol calls Jung out and talks to him. Jung admits what he did but he did it because he just wanted to get close to Seol. Seol isn’t flattered and gets angry. Seol cannot receive anymore “gift” from Jung, but at the cost of hurting someone else. Instead of saying thank you to Jung, she just leaves.

Back to 6 months ago, at the party, while Jung steps out, he saw TA Heo stole his money. Jung asked TA Heo to throw away his report as an exchange. The two promised not to talk about this anymore, but now TA Heo does.

Jung is really hurt and angry. He calls TA Heo out for a talk. “We said last time we’d pretend nothing happened, but now you act like this?” – Jung roars, angrily. 

Jung heads back home and de-stress by playing soccer games. Seol comes to his thought. He remembers that time when Joo Yeon offered him a glass of beer and he let the beer spilled all over her lap. He looked up and saw Seol staring at him.

“You were like that too (Seol). You found me out and laughed cynically. You made judgments about me all on your own and turned the other way. Seol, I’m not that strange.”
COMMENTS
In this episode, Jung realizes that Seol is a type of person who makes judgements about him all her own and turns the other way. And Jung, he is a type of man who helps other secretly, and if people misunderstand him, he just doesn’t care. I don’t like that, in my opinion. We should say things out when we have misunderstandings in order to maintain a relationship. It seems like everytime the couple has good feeling about each other, something goes wrong.
And for the landlady’s grandson, he is really the underwear theif. But what does he want from Seol? I found out that he has sneaked toward Seol’s house for more than 2 times. It is not simple that he just wants to steal Seol’s underwears. He’s creepy!
