As Jung Hee had resolved to do what it takes to achieve success and be a father his children can be proud of, he is inevitably falling deeper into Eun Hee’s trap. Would he risk losing his identity to bend to her will?
Jae Bok makes a shocking discovery that Eun Hee has been stalking them over the years. Could this dangerous woman have manipulated everything in their life all along? Now that Jae Bok knows what is at stake, I think it would give her the determination to fight back.
Eun Hee’s psychosis could be a result of the physical abuse she and her brother Brian had suffered under their mum. 
Though Jung Hee is glad to see that Na Mi is still alive, he cannot forgive her for having deceived him. 

It might be over between them but Na Mi intends to stand by him. I have a feeling she will join forces with Jae Bok in their battle against Eun Hee.

Brian decides to join the company, most likely to keep an eye on Eun Hee and to prevent her from committing further misdeeds. Letting his sister believe that he likes Na Mi should keep her safe.
Eun Hee offers Bong Gu an attractive deal, to take up position as the company’s legal team if he agrees to seduce Jae Bok. I would be very disappointed if he can be lured to do her bidding since he genuinely seems to care for Jae Bok. Still he might be tempted as he has always been hanging around wealthy women to gain their favor.

For the sake of the kids and so that they can have joint custody, Jae Bok decides to move back in. Though Eun Hee is not pleased with this arrangement, she has to abide by the lease.

Jae Bok’s move back into the house would probably be a hindrance to her plans and since it is also Jung Hee’s intention for the family to stay together, Eun Hee agrees on condition that they get engaged. He’s caught in a bind as he has to honor his promise to do whatever she says. 

When Mrs Park delivers a drunk Hye Ran to Jae Bok’s house warming party, she is surprised to see Eun Hee’s mum. And to everyone’s surprise she calls Eun Hee by another name Moon Eun Kyung.

The name sounds familiar to Jae Bok but Jung Hee does not seem to have heard it before.

With thoughts of the impending engagement on his mind, Jung Hee takes a last look at his family photo before placing it into a drawer. A gesture which I read as having to put his family aside for now and do what he has to. 

He bumps into Jae Bok and the kids outside the house as he sets out for the engagement ceremony.
He wants to tell her but could not bring himself to do so.

With a trick she had learned from Bong Gu, Jae Bok succeeds in unlocking the door to Eun Hee’s room on the 3rd level. She had to find out why Jung Hee’s old photo was kept in that room and though they did not see anything in there earlier, Eun Hee’s response had seemed suspicious.
There was nothing unusual behind the curtain but something sticking out at the corner of the board caught her eye.

Jae Bok is horrified to find many old photos of Jung Hee from his rock band days and others of them with the kids. It was evident that Eun Hee had been stalking them over the years.

As he prepares for the engagement ceremony, thoughts of his children seem to strengthen his resolve to go through with it.

An exciting cliffhanger with Jae Bok rushing over when she finds out about the engagement.
Can’t wait for the next episode.

    Yes, it absolutely a cliffhanger !
    But I’m too worried to guess the outcome of their confrontation~
    Obviously we have only two options : one is JH will get shocked
    when he is told about EH’s unbelievable and idiosyncratic stalking,
    and another one is JH doesn’t believe the truth coz when they get
    back to EH’s private room, the pictures of JH and JB and the children
    been changed again…… so I’ll TT

      Hope JB had the presence of mind to snap a pic of that photo collection in EH’s secret room 🙂 But probably not as there is still 8 more ep to go and the drama wouldn’t want everything out in the open just yet. But I would really really hate it if JH goes ahead with the engagement.

      I’m curious if BG will succumb to EH’s offer to seduce JB. It would be ironic if he does because then he would be behaving exactly the same as his half sister NM. But I believe JB is stronger than JH in that sense as she’s not the promiscuous type and she treats BG as a good friend. Well but then, it’s also hard to say as this drama keeps throwing surprises at the viewers.

        Julee, let’s keep our finger crossed for the
        engagement falling flat, guess the writer will
        never dare testify the viewers’ justification,
        bet so ~ hahaha ! !!

        As the script describes JB be the one who
        wanna get back to her fancy of a romance as
        much as a young gal, JB nevertheless
        will roll back to her ethic consciousness of a
        two -kids-mother role; seems like seduction is
        the root of evil in this drama, writer seems to
        convey the message unraveling success
        achieved through seduction is not a true success,
        thanks to our fav man’s implying quite
        a load of positive elements of the drama
        overriding the negative ones, with this I believe
        Yoon tries to send an image of the positive
        aspects of the plot that may influence the
        viewers in much a positive way….
        dear Julee, thanks for reminding me of the
        previous shot of the 4 main characters with JH
        turning to EH and later turning his back against
        her in favor of JB lying next to him, that’s rite !
        The main clue is lying here—— JH and JB yet to
        face a lot more twist and turns of life before getting
        back to the square one, I so much anticipate JH’s
        revival of his lost memory and the sweet romance
        he had with JB ~ Gods bless the couple !

      • juleecwk says:

        I’m just wondering if a man or woman can get engaged during their 3 mth divorce waiting period.

        Now that JB is divorced, it’s not wrong if she were to have another relationship (with BG). It’s understandable as she does need someone in her life, besides the children. But I get the feeling she doesn’t fall for anyone easily and not so soon after the divorce. Though she is disappointed with JH, I hope she has not given up on him. Perhaps through all these struggles, she would rediscover the love which never went away.
