Our heroine’s unique ability might have granted her more time with her beloved ones. But just like anything else, this comes at a hefty price. And definitely, the last thing our heroine wants is for her beloved ones to fall into danger because of her.
Picking up where we left off, Ji-eum’s grand confession to being Joo-won in her past life takes Seo-ha aback. Actually, he feels as if his world got turned upside down. Since the accident, he has spent his life mourning Joo-won’s death and longing for her. How can he believe that the woman before him is Joo-won but in another life?
For some further proof, Ji-eum gives Seo-ha a slight task. The key to the jewelry box she gifted him is hidden in her favorite book. Find the key, open the box, and then read that note. This must be done in order. Which means Seo-ha can’t give in to his curiosity and open the note first. Until then, Ji-eum will wait for him, though not so patiently.
The next day, Seo-ha heads to his parents’ house to find the book Ji-eum hinted at. But he is interrupted by his uncle’s arrival. Both Seo-ha’s father and uncle want the case buried. Yet he won’t let them have their way. Seo-ha asks his uncle, point blank. Why did he try to kill him?
The thing is: the one whom the uncle wanted dead wasn’t Seo-ha but his father. He got mad at his sister’s husband for messing around with one of the employees, the stepmother, while ignoring his sick wife. Furious, he planned the accident but deeply regretted it later. Even if it is true, that isn’t something Seo-ha can get behind. Thus, the uncle should turn himself in. And with the uncle paying for his crimes, I hope there are no remaining twists, so we can bid that tragic incident farewell.
Back to our leads, after struggling with it for a while, Seo-ha finally opens the box where he finds a notebook Joo-won left him, narrating her whole story of living those 18 lives while meeting new people and parting with her beloved ones all along. The most painful thing about her exceptional ability was not having someone to confide in. Which made her reluctant to share that burden with anyone.
But for the first time after meeting Seo-ha, Ji-eum started to see her ability differently. While she kept wishing every time she died to not remember anything in her next life, during her last moments as Joo-won, she promised to come to see Seo-ha again and always remember him. Seo-ha rushes to see Ji-eum at the amusement park, where she has been waiting for him every day since she gave him the note.
Unlike Ji-eum, who wants to spend every separate minute with Seo-ha, Han-na only hanged around him enough to make sure he is okay and give the stepmother a brief lesson to not bother her son again. The rest of the fight is for Seo-ha to do. Instead of obsessing over the past, she wants to live as Han-na and meet new people. A decision that somewhat shakes Ji-eum up.
Though Ji-eum isn’t aware of it yet, Han-na has her reasons to only hang in the background without getting directly involved with Seo-ha. It isn’t out in the open yet. But getting entangled with people you met in a past life puts them in danger. Once again, Cho-won almost got hurt. Not to mention how Ae-kyung’s health keeps deteriorating.
To put a stop to that tragedy before it gets worse, Min-ki leaves the bells in Ji-eum’s room for her to touch and remember her first life on her own though, considering the risk, it might have been better for him to tell her directly. The trouble is Ji-eum is inclined to focus on her happiness with Seo-ha and forget about the memories of her first life.
Since he can’t turn a blind eye and let Ji-eum do as she pleases, unaware of the consequences, Min-ki texts Ji-eum the location of the bridge from her memories. For their next date, Ji-eum takes Seo-ha for a stroll there. More memories spark in Ji-eum’s mind. They have been there before. But that is not all. In her memory, Ji-eum took out a blade and hurt Seo-ha, and then she got hit with an arrow. It looks like the backstory tangling our leads might be more than they can bargain for.
