Looking at a hopeful yet dejected Jin Eon, Hae Gang promises to try to regain her memory in order to help him figure out what happened to his wife... and also a way for her to get over him completely.
Clinging to the bus window, a young Jin Eon desperately tries to convince Hae Gang that they are meant together. Rambling on, Jin Eon even uses Issac Newton in his persuasion.
In a chiding tone, Hae Gang asks "Do you want me to hit you?"
Jumping up and down to try to get closer to Hae Gang, Jin Eon excitedly replies "Yes! It's time we should have some skinship! Hit me with your lips."
The bus starts to pull away, and Jin Eon runs to keep up. Suppressing a smile, Hae Gang calls out "Be careful!"
Sigh... such a sweet memory. I always love to see how silly Jin Eon was in these flash backs.
In a firm voice, Hae Gang replies "No, not at all. Who were you thinking I was when you followed me all the way here?"
Not avoiding Hae Gang's eyes, Jin Eon tells her "I was thinking it would be nice if Dok Go Yong Gi is my wife. Because when I see you, I feel nervous. Because when I look into your eyes, I feel pain."
Telling Jin Eon that they should focus on Hae Gang herself and her happiness, Baek Seok reminds Jin Eon "All of these, empty urn, fake columbarium, questionable accident. Cheon Nyeon Pharmaceutical, your family did this. What are you going to tell her? What are you going to do when she recovers her memory. When she remembers you, when she remembers everything, what is that woman suppose to do? Choi Jin Eon, this time you won't find your wife properly either. And you shouldn't look for her."
His expression darkening as his listens to Baek Seok's pointed questions, Jin Eon can offer no arguments.
While Baek Seok ducks out of the office to take a phone call from the real Yong Gi, Jin Eon spots Hae Gang's tooth brush on her desk and decides to take it in with Hae Gang's old tooth brush for DNA matching.
Tentatively, Baek Seok asks Hae Gang to imagine what Jin Eon's wife would feel towards her in-law and her husband if she was still alive and if she would be able to forgive them. After a pause, Hae Gang shakes her head sightly and answers "No, I don't think I would be to forgive. That woman probably won't be able to either. If she found out Cheon Nyeon Pharmaceutical, where she devoted her life to, did that to her."
Unable to hide her tears as she confirms for good that Yong Gi is really her brother's first love after listening to Yong Gi happily chatting about her past memories with Baek Seok, Seol Ri storms over to Hae Gang's office.
Shaking with emotion, Seol Ri tells a clueless Hae Gang "You must hate me, but I hate you too. I am scared of you, the way you eat away at me. You are still destroying me. I want you to disappear from this world the most. I wish you were dead!" Actually one would think Seol Ri would be really happy that Hae Gang is alive since she has already lost to a dead Hae Gang so maybe she could win over a live one. Oh, wait. I guess she didn't win Jin Eon either when he thought Hae Gang was alive.
In the background we see that the bodyguard Jin Eon hired to protect Hae Gang had stopped the killer from leaving.
It is interesting that the writer is inferring that Hae Gang wouldn't forgive Jin Eon and her in laws once she regains her memory. From my point of view, there is really no doubt that Hae Gang would forgive Jin Eon himself. As much as the affair had hurt Hae Gang, up to the time of her divorce she was still willing to patch things up if Jin Eon would come back to her. In fact, President Choi had sent her to China with the promise that he would make sure Jin Eon wouldn't marry Seol Li and that after a few years she would be able to get back with his son. So while as a viewer I am not too sure about her willingness to forgive Jin Eon's affair but from the plot itself it doesn't seem like she was that terribly hung up on Seol Li.
