Loved yesterday’s episode! It was a bit bitter sweet in that they had to cool off a bit due to the concerns over his personal life about to go sideways. But it ended very much on the sweet side and I have a feeling this episode might continue that trend. Though Jin-hyeok still needs to get his butt back to Seoul somehow. He said he would work his way back so let’s see how he does it!

KOREAN DRAMA ENCOUNTER RECAP EPISODE 10
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
The two love birds sit at the bench on the wave breaker and talk with the lighthouse behind them.
SH – What were you thinking over here?
JH – I was thinking about you
SH – It seemed like you were reading a book.
JH – *smiles and pulls it out*
SH – If the wave is the work of the ocean, then thinking about you is my work….I think it is a blessing that we have an occupation called writer because with one sentence you can carry a big heart.
JH – I think it is about a mother thinking about a daughter. This mother and me, thinking about someone is the same.
ILLUSTRATION: The boy is sleeping with shooting stars flying above him.
The Seokcho employees tell their customers that they have an event going on so the customers cannot go inside. He suggests their Italian restaurant, it has good food and a good view. The customers leave.
Maid – The CEO told us to host customers
Boss – It will be noisy again, we should protect her with all of our abilities
Inside the restaurant in the hotel is super quiet, only SH and JH are there eating. He mentions that it is a bit awkwardly empty. She is all like, yeah, no one is around.
JH – Did you come directly from teacher Lee’s place?
SH – Yes, she talked about her past husband. Can I meet him when I die? Whenever you have a chance, you should see them, that is the winning life.
JH – Teacher says things casually, but it usually has big meanings
SH – Did you spend your time on the wave wall?
JH – *smiles* I went to the beach that we played at and I went to the bench were we drank coffee.
SH – i went to Hongjae neighborhood playground
JH- It will be gone soon.
SH – Why?
JH – The halmoni that owns the land died so her kids put it up for sale
SH – Are you sad?
JH – yes, I grew up witht hat playground but the world changes.
SH – You should go there one more time before it dissapears ad take pictures
JH – Yes, on my break when I have a day off, lets go there togehter
SH – *hesitant* Okay…weren’t you sad when I suggested we take time off?
JH – No, I was okay, something else made me sad
SH – What made you sad?
JH – I promised you that I would get over this time with good memories, but you worried that I couldn’t do it so that made me sad. A lot of text messages, I am also a news among my friends and my family worry about me. A lot of things wave toward me, maybe that is why I want to hide and am hesitant. I don’t actually want to hide or hesitate at all. I have no answer, but I am determined to solve the problem. Did I look weak? That is what I wondered and that is why I was sad.
SH – it is my fault, that is why I came here right away. Can you gie me a break once?
JH – If you tell me to give you a break with your pretty face, then I have to. So, I will buy this meal.
SH – Really?
JH – Eat a lot.
SH – Yes, I should eat a lot.
Later on Jin-hyeok calls someone inthe hallway.
JH – Hello, Nam, I am doing okay. Yes….well….hmm….the CEo came here. I worried about her driving back. I want to take her back but I have the night shift today…..thank you so much. Call me when you get here. Okay.
he hangs up and looks back toward the room, pleasantly.

Cut to the mother waiting at Hwa-jin’s mansion. She stands when Hwa-in comes in. HJ tells her that she can sit and theys tart to talk.
HJ – It is good that I had a little time, you could have missed me by coming by without notice.
MO – If you are not here, I would have just left the wine here, but since you are here, I wanted to say hi.
HJ – Well, we are greeting each other with all that media coverage of Soo-hyun.
MO – Chairman, I am really sorry. I yelled at the employee, I went all the way to Seokcho myself. He will realize what is going on.
HJ – it is no use if you torture someone elses precious son.
MO – What?
HJ – Your daughter is the problem, right?
MO – Yes…okay…it is. I will make her listen. Can you be understanding?
HJ – How long? Well, I don’t care about these thing anymore so we can stop.
MO – Chairman…
HJ – My son is dating wifes to be, one by one. So I don’t want to meet you like this anymore.
MO – *kneels*
HJ – Can you stand back up.
MO – Whatever is takes, I will put her back. Please. The election is not that far away.
HJ – You will be the wife of the president, you should not be like this. But, I dont’ guarantee that he will go to the blue house.
MO – it is all my fault…
HJ – it does not seem like you will stand up easily, so I will stand up first.
She stands up and leaves with her bag. Mi-ok is left on her knees by the couch.
Nam shows up smiling and waiting. Sh asks JH if he really called him for her. Jin-hyeok mentions that she shoud be tired. Nam speaks up and says that he enjoyed his tripon the express bus, he ate a lot of ojino and rested.
JH – take a rest while driving back
SH – Bye.
Jin-hyeok opens her door for her and closes it happily. Then he looks at Nam.
Nam – *whispers* I come here often so it is like my hometown
JH – *whispers* If you come here on your day off, I will buy you nice things
Nam – Okay, lets have soju together.
JH – Safe driving.
Nam drives Soo-hyun off and Jin-hyeok watches them leave.
Daechan is busy with a lot of guests in his restaurant when Mijin comes in. He asks why she is there and she says that he told her to come. They figyre out that Jim-myung called her because Dae-chan needed a part time worker. Are you really here for that? he had to go home.
Mijin is all like, what in the world? But she starts to take orders for Daechan and actually looks like she is having a good time.
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
Change scene to Nam and Soo-hyun driving back. He mentions that it is difficult right?
Nam – Ajusshi will tell you a very sad story. A long time ago, I had a woman that I liked.
SH – Really?
Nam – Yes, it’s true. That woman was kind of okay with me, but I didn’t confess to her.
SH – Why?
Nam – I didn’t dare, she was so pretty, so shiny and far away. Maybe only to me, but she was pretty.
SH – Ajusshi, what about you?
Nam – I have a big face…I went to jail also
SH – You didn’t steal of kill anyone, you went there because of your article.
Nam – But I am an ex convict, I can make a living becaue you are my boss. Otherwise, no onewill hire me.
SH – Ajusshi, don’t say it like that, it will make me cry.
Nam – I didn’t tell you this to make you cry.
SH – Without you I wouldn’t have any friends. You brought Mijin to me and kept the secret of the concert from Mom. And you let us have pajama parties when Mom and Dad weren’t around.
Nam – It is because Mijin is a nice person.
SH – Don’t say that you dont’ deserve things. that makes my fathers strike meaningless.
Nam – yeah, thats right
SH – So what happened with that woman?
Nam – I coldn’t confess to her that I really liked her. I thought I would have a chance some day, but then she broguht a man to get married so I congratulated her and became like this. It is so sad right?
SH – it makes me mad.
Nam – it is all in the past. But when I see you and Jin-hyeok, it reminds me of that. Think only of yourself. DOn’t think about the company or father or mother, it is your life so be selfish.
SH – worry about him and that thing.
Nam – It is his life, he made that decision
SH – His family will have a hard time also, you know
Nam – That is the same, no parents can stop their own kids. The most important thing is the two of you.
SH – Thank you ajusshi, thank you for telling me sad stories.
Nam – You should keep the secret okay, don’t tell anyone.
SH – I won’t tell director Kim Sun-joo.
Nam – Huh? Why are you talking about Sun-joo?
SH – It reminds me of her.
Nam – You shouldnt do it!
SH – It is so clear, your big face looking at Sun-joo.
Nam – I have small eyes, so I can’t see well.
SH – *smiles* I will take a nap.
They finished up serving all the guests and are sitting in the cafe all alone. Mijin accepts a beer from Dae-chan and drinks it all in one go. She wonders how she can’t stop accepting a nice thing like this. Dae-chan tells her not to date a guy gives hr problems after drinking. She tells him whatever. he gives hr her money for today. She thinks its great and starts counting it. he says he gave her some more because he is thankful and she is admirable. But he isn’t sure if she understands his ocean like heart (jokingly). He starts to drink his beer.
She tells him that no man says she is admirable even though a lot of guys say she is attractive. He says that she will tell him to know himself if he says that she is attractive. She says she could not tell him this because there was not good timing, i am sorry about what I said to you. I went too far. DC tells her that if she does not want to date a high school graduate, just come by and we can drink and have a good time together.
She tells him that he will increase his sales like this? He says he will not charge attractive women. She stops drinking and tells him not to hit on her, he is not her style. Then she gives him his money back and hurries out. But outside she happily hops away and is flattered as she thinks, how dare he hit on me.
inside, he tells his heart not to beat too much.

SOO HYUN’S PLACE
Soo-hyun hops in bed but sees a video call from Jin-hyeok who is still at work. She does not answer right away but does when it is a regular call.
JH – Did you get back okay?
SH – yes, because of Nam
JH – Where are you? Youa re at home? Why didn’t you pick up facetime? I thought you weren’t at home so you didn’t, I am sad.
SH – It is not like that, it is my first time doing a video call.
JH – Ah, it is like that…you are so cute.
SH – I had video conference calls with branches, but one on one….it’s a bit…ummm
JH – What is a little ummm….Hang up, I will call you on video.
SH – I am okay with this! hello?
She hops up and runs to put on a sweater and tries to fix her hair a little bit. He calls her on video call.
JH – Hello, it is good to see you face to face.
SH – yes, it is not bad.
JH- So, what is your impression of a first video call is not bad?
SH – It is just awkward
JH – Long distance has this kind of fun, it isn ot bad right?
SH – Yes, it is like “missing each other” things
JH – So from now on, lets go to bed doing a video call
SH – I will think about it.
JH -How can you think about it? Lots of other couples do it several times a day
SH – You should give me time to adapt, it is awkward
JH – I am not awkward at all, with this, I think I like you more than you like me
SH – With only vieo call? It is not a good measure. I don’t know about it…it is the first time in my life
JH – Your aAngry….I am in big trouble *smiles*
SH – No, not like that
JH – if you aren’t angry then put your face closer to the phone. I want to see you but your small face is a lot smaller that far away.
She moves her face closer so he jokes that her nose holes are big. They play with it a bit and he puts his phone at 45 degrees to look better. She tells him he is handsome so he says that is daebak and he has to write it in his journal. It is the first time she has said that. She wonders, really? I always think that way. He says he always tells her that she is cute, pretty and always tells her whenever he has a chance. it doesn’t matter how much she thinks it, she has to say it.
She is all like, really? He tells her not to shout. She says that he is super cool, super handsome, the handsomest in the world, I can’t even breath, Jin-hyeok is the handsomest guy in the world. he mentions that he feels heart pitter patter (soleda) when she says that. Then he asks if she is tired and if she still takes her sleeping pills? She thinks for a moment. he tells her that if he was next to her, he could put her to sleep right away. He is a human sleeping pill. If possible, don’t take the pill.
SH – Actually, I reduced it a lot, it is all because of you.
JH – Do you want me to sing you a song until you sleep? When I see you sleeping, i will stop. that is a good good Idea
SH – No, that is not a good idea, I don’t want to show you myself right before I go to sleep.
JH – I am seeing it now
SH – No! I was working!
JH – You are, you were wearing your pajamas and hurried to put on a sweater backwards, you can focus well when you work.
She checks her sweater and it is on backwards.
SH – Ah, I am not good witht his video call
JH – I like it the most, it is my favorite
SH – I will hang up.
JH – NO! Stop!…….thank you for coming all the way over here to see me. Thank you.
SH – You shouldn’t thank me, you did it all the time.
JH – So to celebrate it, lets talk on video call everyday.
SH – Well see.
JH – Noooo, this information technology IT world, I can’t even talk to you via video
SH – Are you this style? I am so embarrassed, I have goose bumps see *shows her arm*
JH – I don’t see them, what kind of style is this style? Obsession is a good thing
SH – Ah, you are so sleezy now….*jokes*
JH – Do you think video calls are more comfortable now
SH – Yes, I take it a bit more comfortably, do I look more comfortable now?
Jh – *He sits on the steps* yes, It is more comfortable
They continue talking and then we cut to Soo-hyun sleeping.
JH – Goodnight, sweet dreams.
he hops up very happy and goes back to work. Soo-hyun is super knocked out.
SEOUL DONGHWA COMPANY
The advertisement team sees the magazine article of their hotel in Seokcho, it is the must visit hotel in Asia and shows a photo of Jin-hyeok. it is the photo that the woman took of Jin-hyeok.
Everyone cannot believe this because that magazine never posts hotels unless they love them. Jin-ho tries to say it isn’t a big deal, but Sun-joo says it is every hoteliers dream to be inthis magazine. Eun-jin holds the photo of Jin-hyeok a but close to hr bossom. Hye-in smiles and sends Jin-hyeok a photo of it.
Jin-hyeok checks it right away and then recieves her call. She tells him that she will be her boss soon. he tells her that it was a coincidence and asks if she can send it to his mother and father, it would be embarrassing if he did it.
But he has to hang up quickly becuase his manager is coming. He looks serious, but then he giggles like a boy and says that he has a super lucy guy in the hotel. Jin-hyeok mentions that he did nto know that person was that kind of person. The manager says that he knows know why the CEO adores him. But the manager has to run off because his cellphone is blowing up with congratulation phone calls.
Soo-hyun is also happy at her desk. She tells Sun-joo to send him a bouquet. Sun-joo says that they always do this. But even the advertisement team cannot even do this if they spend one year trying to do it. Soo-hyun says that they have no other thing to give him. Sun-joo mentions that she should send him back to their department. With the end of the year party and this thing, he would be good here.
Soo-hyun looks at her for a while but then says that they should make it prize money and hotel coupons and vacation. Sun-joo mentions that this is the best way she can bring him back tot he main branch. Soo-hyun does not think that he wants it, his good dead will lose its value if he is. Sun-joo understands and leaves.
Soo-hyun smiles at the article one more time.
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
Jin-hyeok get a text while outside.
SH: You are cool.
He smiles and happily walks back to work.
Meanwhile, Woo-seok wonders what he should write to impress Cha Soo-hyun when he gets a knock on the door. his secretary says that he prepared the bouquet and asks what he should do with the flowers just in case she returns it. WS says that he is ready to be refused 100 times. But maybe he should excercise in stead of drink, just in case.
then he asks his secretary if he is good at writing. the secretary asks what kind of writing so WS tells him he needs something that would go well with a bouquet.
Secretary – I am writing with my heart that I cannot distinguish if you are the flower or the flower is you.
WS – Okay…go back to work. …. You flower…or flower is you…sending my heart that cannot distinguish…..*sits back in chair*
Elsewhere, Mijin takes a photo of the bouquet that WS sent. Soo-hyun tells her that she should have returned it. She has a lot of flowers in her room actually. She reads the bouquet.
Note – i am sending you kids that look like you
Soo-hyun asks for Mijin to take care of the flowers. take them to your house. Mijin is all like, where do I sleep if I take them? Then Woo-seok called.
WS – i am congrtulating you for having an article in Tourist Magazine. I heard it is a very picky magazine. I am at Sky lounge, lets meet.
SH – I have a lot of meetings, dont wait for me and don’t do this anymore.
WS – I will wait here, take care of your business.
he waits. The waitress brings him another drink.
3 hours passes, Mijin tells SOo-hyun know that she thinks he is still waiting. Soo-hyun tells her that she needs the over seas team to check the document from Cuba. Mijin changes to friendly talk and asks if she can go there to tell him that you cannot make it? But Soo-hyun becomes formal and asks for the over seas planning team.
Woo-seok finally leaves.
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
In Hongjae, Jin-hyeoks appa reads the article. Hye-in sees him. he tells her that he thought she left Korea because seh only eats snail and leaves. She smiles and says that this is why she came to get fruit. She then sits with him and tells him that the magazine is very important. Appa is so happy to see it and says that his son is lucky to stumble upon this. He offers Hye-in persomon and head inside.
But sinister things are brewing in the next scene! All the evil guys are talking at a cafe about something that will put Donghwa hotel in danger and CEO cha in danger. She might break. They are trying to convince another employee of something.
JH – It can be your best opportunity
Guy – But it could put our company in danger
ED Choi – CEO Cha will break. Lets say that you get luck y and stay in the company until you retire, that means you are an executive director. I calculated all those salaries, this is the offer. Do you refuse it?
Guy – But I can be legally responsible.
Lawyer – Taekyung will give you the best law firm.
JH – If I was you then I would say yes already, I cannot do it because it is out of my area.
ED – After you do it, quit the company. Take one month vacation with you family members and everything will be taken care of. Legal problem? We have to have someone ask you about the legal problem. When CEO Cha is kicked out, who will ask you? Will I ask you to be responsible legally?
But then we see that someone is recording this entire conversation in a booth over.
SOO HYUN’S OFFICE
She is meeting with two people.
SH – it is all cancelled?
Man – Yes, we explained to them tat the blue print is wrong, but they are not listening. I don’t know what to do with this one email mistake. The employee sent the email, wrote a resignation letter and dissapeared. No cell phone and no one is at home.
Man2 – I got the mail back from Cuba, he wrote it with bad intentions. It says that DongHwa never wants to maintain the garden. The garden shows Cubas economic fall, we want to make a nice pool instead. If you refuse then we will rething the hotel
SH – Tell them this is not the companies opinion, we will get an apology letter from the employee.
Man2 – I told them, but the deal is ruined. It is a pride thing. The only deal was saving the garden, but that is ruined.
SH – Can you find out how to contact him? I will go there.
Man – Before I gave you a report like this, I found out everything. I tried to get his contact so I could fly into Cuba. It seems like the Cuba hotel people are blocking us. A lot of other hotels are contacting him now. It is land with the best view so no one will leave it alone.
Soo-hyun takes a deep breath. Then Mijin comes in announcing and emergency board meeting. She thinks she should attend.
Cut to the board meeting.
ED – Our stock price halfenned, this makes no sense.
Man – This is temporary, don’t say it like that.
ED – Are you sure? Can you say this is temporary, it is critical damage. That is why we need a professional CEO. The CEO majored in media and does not know business. Our hotel is getting bigger. Actually, TaeKyung started a lawsuit against DongHwa for ownership.
SH – *shows up* Taeikyung lawsuit is not even reported to the law team. You have good information ED Choi. Are you all surprised? This is from malicious intention by one employee. Our international team is trying hard to correct this.
man – It is big damage Our overseas stock is also negative.
SH – It can all be taken care of if the CUba hotel thing is taken care of. I trust all of you executive directors. With waiting and not to be unrested. Please support us.
She starts to walk off.
ED – The CEo is busy with her personal life, that is why we have this kind of mistake.
SH – I majored in media so when I am curious I look at things from a reporters eyes. Assistant manager Kim and who is behind him, I will definitely find out who is behind it. Please wait for that.
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
In Seokcho, Jin-hyeok is on the phone outside.
JH – Hey, Hye-in can you talk?
HI – Did you see the article? There is huge trouble here. We are all on alert.
JH – What happened?
HI – One of our employees sent an email to Cuba breaking the promise about the garden. he changed the blueprint and showed a pool. The owner of the land only sold it due to the condition that we would keep the garden It was his wifes will. maybe something important was touched.
Jin-hyeok thinks about the garden….garden…..
he remembers back to the huge garden.
Man – it was a beautiful time. Everything here, all of that was here. It was a difficult time to keep it all together. it was my wifes garden.
VO – But the owners biggest deal was keeping the garden, it was his wifes will.
Jin-hyeok walks with determination to his manager and tells him that he is taking a few days off. It is urgent. The manager tells him that he has vacation time from the main branch, so lets just say you are using that.
Jin-hyeok goes to Trip.com to buy an airplane ticket and hurries off.
Meanwhile, The person who recorded the secret sabotage meeting is showing the video to Woo-seok. Or actually the secretary is showing it to him. They can hear the voices and see who is talking as well. Woo-seok tells him to continue following ED.
Soo-hyun’s appa also looks at the news article about the deal breaking in Cuba. he calls Nam and says that he wanted to check on her. he thinks this matter is getting bigger. Nam says that Secretary Jung will soo her with the divorce and all that nonsense about the hotel. Appa hangs up and walks to this window to brood.
Elsewhere, Jin-hyeok writes something while riding on the bus.
he gets home extra early in the morning and tries not to wake up his family, but his father goes to his room and asks him why he is picking out all his summer clothes. JH says he is going to Cuba and he did nto want to wake them up. Appa thinks his son is leaving as soon as he sees him. He isn’t that happy about it, but he knows his son is working hard and tells him to pack well and mentions that his picture looked good. Jin-hyeok jokes it is because he is handsome, Appa jokes it is because he takes after his father.
In the company, Soo-hyun still in unable to contact the Cuba owner. No one can find him. Soo-hyun thinks that she shuold go to Cuba, she does not want a European hotel to get that spot. She will call them when she gets there.
Jin-hyeok waits in a seat and holds his plane ticket. He sends Soo-hyun a text as he is about to board.
JH: If the waves is the oceans work, then thinking about you is my work.
Soo-hyun calls Secretary jang and asks for her to buy a ticket to Cuba, then she sees her message.
VO – If the waves is the work of the ocean, then thinking about you is my work, so I will do what I can do. Cheer up.
She calls him right away, but the phone is off. There is a knock on her door, Mijin comes in and says that she checked. Even with the earliest ticket, they will be a day off so they cannot arrange a meeting. It will be the weekend. Soo-hyun tells her, even so, please reserve the ticket.
She tries calling Jin-hyeok again, but he is on the plane and his phone is off.
The music of Cuba fills the screen once again as we see all the fun sites of Cuba and scroll into the airport. Jin-hyeok arrives and hops directly into a taxi.
Lots more scenes and sights of Cuba.
Jin-hyeok gets to a hotel and meet with someone. This person says that he is just a hotel company so it is difficult to convince the owner of the land. He has already made up his mind. JH asks if he can at least have his contact details. But the consierge says that is not possible. Jin-hyeok asks if he can pass a letter on to him? But the man says that this man is so upset, he is angry at us also. What is so important about that old garden? I am sorry but this is all that I can do.
Jin-hyeok walks out, sullen.
In Seol, Soo-hyun finds out from Nam that Jin-hyeok took a few days off. He should have scene the news, is he not contacting you?
Back in Cuba we see Jin-hyeok walk into the huge plot of land where the hotel is going. he walks in but it is empty, it is a huge empty house. he walks ot eh garden in the back, no one is there (but the garden is stil lgorgeous). Not deterred, Jin-hyeok just sits and starts reading.
Later on at night, he turns on the lights in the garden and sits on the steps again. it is quiet all around, he puts his book away and then decides to sleep using his bag as his pillow. (this is the intro to the episode).
he lays back and looks at all the stars.
VO – Among all those stars, one star is looking at me. …. among so many people looking at that star…..this lovely you and me….where will we meet again and as what?
Jin-hyeok starts to think about his first meeting of Soo-hyun in Cuba and how she asked him if he has money. he laughed. She asked why he is laughing, she is serious. He tells her that she is cute asking for beer. Then she asks if he has money? She laughed so he says he is not funny but she laughed. She tells him that he laughed at her too, I am laughing because you are cute….the memory ends with them dance at the salsa event.
he falls asleep thinking about this.
——-Drama Milk is on Patreon——-
he wakes to the owner taking Jin-yeok’s book and looking at him curiously. Jin-hyeok pops up. The man asks if they met before?
Cut to Jin-hyeok and the man sitting inside and talking, he gives him his letter.
Letter – I understand why this garden is important for you. in my neighborhood we have an old playground. That playground, sadly, will dissapear soon. My youth, my friends, my family, and my memory of the woman I love. The playground with all those important memories will dissapear. So I understand your anger. I am visiting you to ask you for forgiveness for the misunderstanding. DongHwa hotel and the CEO have a true intention to save and protect the garden.
Man – you are good at writing Spanish….you should be glad that I was an English teacher.
JH – Glad to hear that.
Man – Did you sleep here?
JH – Yes
Man – I have a question for you, but you should think very carefully before answering. Becuase it might change my mind.
Jh – Go ahead.
Man – Your point in this letter is because you love the CEO?
JH – Well, there is a personal reason for why this hotel should go on and DOnghwa appreaciate this grden.
Man – So you say no? You don’t love her?
JH – I miss her more than anything.
Man – Well, it is time for breakfast, I wil think about it. This is you right? *shows magazine*
JH – how did you know?
Man – After my wife passed away, traveling is no fun anymore. But oneof my hobbies is reading this magazine. You look better in person than in the picture.
Jin-hyeok smiles and they both stand
Man – DOn’t wait here anymore. I will give you an answer tomorrow morning. Take this. *he gives the letter back* Goodbye.
He leaves. Jin-hyeok sits back on the bench and lets out a big breath and then mutters that he is so hungry. He eats something from his bag and then turns on his cell phone. But he has no battery so he has to pull out a portable charger.
Meanwhile, SOo-hyun arrived to Cuba
VO – Soo-hyun, I heard this from Dae-chan. Jin-hyeok went to Cuba for a business trip. I don’t know what he is doing here but I think you should know.
Soo-hyun calls Jin-hyeok from her hotel, but his phone is still off. She wonders where he is and heads out. The song everyone loves starts to play.
Soo-hyun looks around for Jin-hyeok everywhere. Meanwhile, Jin-hyeok is sitting on the wall next to the waves. Soo-hyun keeps looking for him and checks her phone again. She goes to a cafe but he is n ot there so she heads out. But she looks back in at the couples happily, and remembers Jin-hyeok telling her something.
VO – If you have time in the morning, can you buy me a coffee in that cafe?
SH – I don’t k now tomorrows schedule
JH – I will wait for 30 minutes, if you don’t come then I will leave. DOn’t feel pressure.
Jin-hyeok gets up from the wall and heads out.
Soo-hyun goes to that cafe that they were supposed to meet at. He is not there. She is about to leave but sees something on the wall of messages. She pulls it out, it is Korean.
Letter – If we see each other again, I wanted to ask you if you have a boyfriend. – From the fruit merchant
Flashback to him posting his message there.
In the present, he comes in and sees Soo-hyun looking at his message. She is so happy to see it and gets a touch emotional.
JH – Do you have money?
She turns around and sees him standing there smiling.
JH – Do you have money?
SH – How much money is enough?
JH – Hmm, enough to buy bread and coffee
SH – Are you going to pay me back?
JH – Yes, I will have my salary soon.
they both laugh and then head out to enjoy Cuba together. They get to a famous castle, but it is closed.
SH – I am sad, but we can just go.
JH – Wait *hops gate* Come here, Quickly.
SH – *goes in through break in the gate* Lets go.
Jin-hyeok looks so stunned and then walks to catch up with her.
Time passes in Cua as it gets dark on the island. Security walks around he castle. Jin-hyeok and SOo-hyun hide from him and then go up the steps to have a beer at the very top.
SH – So, did you really see that guy?
JH – Yes, I don’t know about the results, he will give me an answer tomorrow morning. It should be okay.
SH – Because you did your best.
JH – I hope our true heart is delivered to him.
SH – Yes, me too.
They both sigh and look around.
JH – Because of this, we meet each other again here.
SH – Yes, it is really like magic.
JH – You saw the note…
SH – yes
JH – Now I feel good, because I proved that I liked you before you liked me.
She smiles and they both smile as they look at each other. But then her phone rings so she picks it up and he takes another drink of his beer. Soo-hyun gets off the phone and tells Jin-hyeok that the halabogi gave them a big present.
Jh – Really???
SH – How did you turn his heart back? You are an alchemist.
He celebrates and claps
JH – THANK YOU HALABOGEEEEEEEEE!
SH – shhhhhhhhh…quiet!
She puts her finger to her lips to shh him to be a bit quieter. they both looks around to see if they are caught. But then Jin-hyeok walks to where she is gives her a big hug.
JH – Cha soo-hyun shi….Soo-hyun shi….
SH – Did you decide to call me like that? It’s not bad.
He turns her around and runs his hands down her arm to hold her hands.
Jh – I love you.
then he soflty holds her face and looks at her for a moment until he kisses her.
the Cuban music starts to play.
Caption – people think my hand can’t reach you….also people think your lovely arms won’t be able to hug me……..last night I had a dream that you loved me…..even if I die, I want to kiss you…..Kiss and forget about it…..if you want, I will give my life to you……But, if I really can kiss you like I dreamed…..you will never forget about me.
They keep kissing on the wall. Cut to an image of her sleeping on the wall when they first met.
Then we cut to them kissing on her balcony at the hotel. A very nice long and longing kiss.
VO – I wanted to ask if we see each other again…do you have a boyfriend?
The camera cuts to the note that Jin-hyeok wrote that has the same thing on it.
ILLUSTRATION: the boy is still sleeping among the stars. She flies down as if she is among the stars and kisses him.

We are in the cafe, Jin-hyeok’s letter is behind all the other letters. The manager of the hotel from before puts his letter on the surface.
Caption – what kind of letter is this? It looks strange
Jin-hyeok yells at the caste
Caption – Thank you Samul Halabogi!
The security guard sees them kissing, shakes his head and chuckles
Caption – Good times. (good moments or good age or young people or youth)
Cut to Jin-hyeok singing a song called Drunken Truth
text – Congratuations on you comeback
SH – What happened in Cuba, I think you hsould help us ajusshi.
ED – What do you really want?
WS – I don’t know about hotels, but I will do my best
JH – I am going to go with this person
