Yoon-young was able to enter school thanks to Hae-jun's help. As soon as she began her classes, she realized that one of her classmates was the future Ko Mi-sook.

Episode 10: Far or Close
Hae-jun and Yoon-young have gained a deep understanding of how a minor mistake can have devastating and irreversible consequences for others, particularly when it involves family matters.

Yoon-young refuses to allow her mother to endure the same life that awaits her if she gives everything up.

Episode 12: A Man Who Doesn't Exist
The case grows more perplexing and convoluted with every investigation conducted by Hae-jun and Yoon-young. In the midst of her own emotional turmoil following her sister's demise, Soon-ae's predominant worry revolves around her mother's well-being. On a calm evening, when everything appears serene, Hae-jun receives an urgent and terrified call from Bum-ryong.

Hae-jun is caught in a difficult situation when he is discovered at the scene of a murder, coincidentally at the wrong time.

In the meantime, Hae-jun tries to maintain a facade of disinterest toward his mother, but finds himself irresistibly drawn to Chung-ah.

Episode 14: Meeting You Will Bring Me Joy
Rather than idly waiting for the case to resolve itself or relying solely on the police, Hae-jun takes action by involving the media to expedite the investigation.

As she prepares to leave the town, Chung-ah turns to Hae-jun and asks him to accompany her to the station, and the two share a little conversation.

He meticulously follows the trail, step by step, in the hopes that it will lead him to the vital evidence he needs.

Episode 16 (END)
With everything seemingly restored, Hae-jun realizes he is unable to go back. Suspecting there must be a reason behind this, he embarks on a final set of visits to say goodbye to his close family and friends. Yoon-young follows a similar path, ensuring her loved ones are prepared for the unexpected future. However, during their last journey together, Hae-jun encounters a special someone whom he is unwilling to reveal to Yoon-young.
