Later, Yong-pil walks back in the rain and sees a kitten getting drenched which reminds him of his memories in a similar situation with Sam-dal. He leaves behind his umbrella for the kitten and rushes back home when he sees Sam-dal trying to do something to his room while balancing herself over the wall.

He comes behind her which leaves her shocked and the two fall on the road. Elsewhere, Yong-pil’s father, Cho Sang-tae, finds out about Sam-dal’s return to town. Meanwhile, Sam-dal treats Yong-pil’s wound and asks him to not mention him accompanying her on her trip to Seoul.

The next morning, Sam-dal finds out about Jin-dal’s encounter with her ex-husband and is briefly shocked before she gets back to making her way to find herself. On the way, she comes across Yong-pil who finds out that she is going on the Jeju Olle Trail, a famous trek on the island.

Yong-pil bursts out laughing when he finds out about this and makes fun of her way of looking for Cho Sam-dal before leaving. Elsewhere, Jeon Da-young thinks about Jin-dal when he comes across his cousins who make fun of what happened to him recently. Da-young is unable to say anything and daydreams about his wife who would’ve shown them their place by now.

Meanwhile, Jin-dal prepares to splurge with Ha-yul when she runs into Da-young’s assistant Ko Chul-jong who asks her about her well-being. As he walks her back home, they come across Da-young who tries to talk to Jin-dal but is scared away when she mentions his brothers to him.

On the other hand, Ha-yul looks for the dolphins the man she had met was talking about. Meanwhile, the strange man Kong Ji-chan is also in a rush to find the dolphin who couldn’t be tracked all night long. However, a twist of fate brings him in front of Hae-dal who helps him out but also assumes him to be a mentally ill patient.

He assures her that he is not what she assumes which leaves her embarrassed. As they walk, she finds Ha-yul who sees a spark between the man and her mother, making her decide to call her mother “aunt” in front of this man. Elsewhere, the news of Yong-pil and Sam-dal getting together spreads all over town while the latter enjoys the trail with many others.

The story once again picks up and goes beyond the anger the two held for each other to find a way to clear everything that happened to them. We can see that Yong-pil’s father is one of the reasons why the two broke up and if we try to connect the dots then it may be because of Yong-pil’s devotion towards Sam-dal.

We can now hope to know more about their break-up story from here on while Mi-ja is surely going to leave us heartbroken soon. Meanwhile, Yong-pil is only becoming more of a green flag with each passing episode and Sang-do is following right behind him. However, the biggest green flag in this serious right now is Ha-yul who is looking out for her mother in such a heart-warming way.
