Everything that surrounded me was perfect.


Hey, you're back.

I missed you.


(A World of Married Couple)

I'm so late.

Come here.

You need to send Joon Young to school.

Get up. I'll make you a cup of coffee.

I bought one for myself because planes are so dry.

I can't believe you got a cherry-flavored one though.

I don't know how to speak Chinese.

I'll go ahead and take a shower first.


Dad. Mom is getting me a math tutor.

On top of English and piano lessons?

Do you have the time? It's mad annoying.

Can you talk Mom out of it?

You need to get a grasp on math before you start middle school.

It will only get harder later otherwise.

She says it'll get harder later. Dad.

Must he do everything everyone else does?

Our son may not excel in math, but he's creative just like his dad.

That's right.

Creativity is good.

But if he doesn't have the basics, how will he display his creativity?

Regardless, education is valued the most right now.

Goodness.

Don't think of controlling Dad. Focus on improving your math grade.

Joon Young. Sorry. Goodness.

See you later. Hey.

Don't I look old?

They photoshopped it well.

I guess.

You get prettier as you age.

Whatever.

Hold on.

Wear this.

It's raining tonight, so it'll get chilly.

What about you?

My wifey can't catch a cold. I don't care about me.


Sun Woo, how's the planning going for Mr. Lee's birthday party?

Tae Oh rejected the banner, so we nixed that.

We'll just have some flowers.

For drinks, we're having wine and craft beer.

Whom did you invite?

The same people from his last birthday party... plus the association chair, Councilman Cha, and Tae Oh's employees.

Good. You are so perfect.

How was Jeju Island?

The weather was nice, right?

Did you have a romantic time with Je Hyuk?

It was nice. I felt like we were newlyweds again.

(Employee Parking)

Hi. Hello.

(Kong Ji Chul, Hospital Director Ji Sun Woo, Associate Director)

Good morning. Morning.

Hello.

Good morning. Good morning.

Why is there a cop car out front?

We have trouble.

What trouble?

Dr. Ma strangled someone at a bar.

Mr. Ma did that?

Hello, ma'am. Hello.

Dr. Ji. Good, you're finally here.

Our associate director is in charge of external matters.

I'd like to hear what happened.

A man fainted at a bar last night and is still unconscious.

According to witnesses, Ma Kang Suk... got in the ambulance with him and strangled him.

Did Dr. Ma administer first aid?

That's what he claims, but the victim's family insists he was drunk and hurt him.

They're threatening to press charges.

If you are employing someone mentally unstable as a doctor, they will hold the hospital accountable as well.

That's ridiculous.

Why should the hospital be blamed for a personal problem?

May I see the paramedics' record?

He administered CPR, but there was still no pulse, so he gave him endotracheal intubation.

Did you use the cricoid pressure maneuver for intubation?

Cricoid... What?

Prior to intubation, you apply pressure on the cricoid cartilage... to confirm the airway is open.

To the average person, it can look like you're strangling them.

That's... That's what happened.

That's what it was. Cricoid pressure.

Please question the paramedics again for their detailed accounts, and if there's still a problem, please send him an official summons.

If they claim the doctor who gave the best first aid possible... to someone whose heart stopped made a mistake, we will defend him aggressively.

Okay, okay. Back to your stations.

Office hours will start soon.

Let's go. What are you waiting for?

The hospital doesn't operate it I step away for a minute.

Dr. Ma.

How much did you drink?

You still reek of alcohol.

You should go home.

That moron director. What would he have done without you?

Anyway. What a useless director.

We need to do something about Dr. Ma.

I feel like he'll cause even bigger trouble.

You look lively.

Your husband must be back.

How did you know?

Seeing as how much oxytocin you have in your system, you're still in your honeymoon stage.

Dr. Sul.

Cut me some slack. I'm sexually frustrated.


(Ji Sun Woo Family Love Hospital)


I feel like I'm going to snap.

I want to sleep, but...

Are you listening?

How long has it been since you had trouble sleeping?

It started three months ago.

It seems to be a trend with young women... to take that in lieu of appetite suppressants.

I'm not interested in losing weight.

I need sleeping pills, that's all.

That's more reason why you should see a psychiatrist.

I know that.

I'm here because I don't want to leave a record there.

I already confirmed that a family doctor can prescribe it.

Yes, I can, but...

it's my policy not to prescribe barbiturates too rashly.

Moreover, it is against my ethics as a doctor... to prescribe it to someone... who refuses to have a psychiatric evaluation on the record.

(Ji Sun Woo)

You must come.

Thank you for the offer, but I'm not sure if I'll have the time.

You told me to get over my menopause... by rebuilding my self-esteem.

You told me to look for something I can be passionate about.

That's why I started painting.

That's why you must come.

Your fashion style... changed a bit.

If one wants to live young, they need a man's love.

I think it was worth changing my style.

I'm having some fun these days.

You're doing much better.

I don't think you need to come in anymore.

Okay.

I'll expect to see you at the exhibition.

Have a good day.


Wait up!


Mom.

Joon Young.

We'll be sleeping outdoors in a tent when we go camping.

Are you sure Dad can go? Are you completely sure?

Of course, he can.

He promised to clear his schedule.

He promised to go last year, then something came up last minute.

What if it happens again this year?

I can't trust him.

Dad will take you camping this year no matter what, so don't worry.

Ma'am.

Hello.

Don't you recognize me?

I'm Jang Mi Yun. I was Mr. Lee's assistant director.

Of course.

I met you at the company's opening ceremony.

I remember you.

I think your hair was short then.

Yes. I got extensions. It looks real, doesn't it?

What brought you to this neighborhood?

Didn't Mr. Lee tell you?

I've been working as his secretary for over a year.

His assistant?

I raise my daughter alone, so it was hard to continue working in film production.

I got a divorce.

Mr. Lee knew my situation and hired me as a personal assistant.

I'm so very thankful.

Since work ends at 5pm, I can pick up my daughter.

At 5pm?

He always leaves work right at 5pm.


Mom?

Yes?

Right.

Are you done?

(Happy birthday)

Look. Which one is the best?

Are they all bad?

I think this will be the best.

I knew it. I was confident about this one too.

(Happy birthday, from Sun Woo and Joon Young)

There we go.

When he hears that you made it, Dad will be so happy.

He's home.

Joon Young.

I heard a nice one came in, so I dropped by to pick it up.

It's a limited edition.

You're late.

I'm not that late.

This is the time I always come home.

Exactly.

Did I do something wrong?

Joon Young, go upstairs and do your homework.

Why? We have to eat dinner.

The ribs need to boil a little longer.

I'll call you when it's ready.

Braised short ribs.

I ran into Mi Yun today.

Who?

Why didn't you tell me?

Didn't I tell you?

I thought I did. That's hot.

Did you go on business trips together too?

Of course.

She has experience as an assistant director, and she's good at her job.

Gosh.

The investors were being so inflexible.

I had to brief them for hours in the hotel room.

This is amazing.

I guess you drank too.

I had to in order to lighten the mood.

Did Mi Yun drink too? Sure.

Should I open the wine? Please.

Wash your hands first.

Okay.

Sorry.


Sun Woo.

I made some braised short ribs.

You just came back home, so I figured you'd be tired to cook.

You're always so considerate.

Come on in.

You seasoned it perfectly.

Is there anything you can't do?

Where's Je Hyuk?

He's behind at work after our vacation, so he'll be late.

Do you want some tea? No, I better go.

Is that hair color trendy these days?

I've been seeing it a lot.

You know Uhm Hyo Jung, right?

She's famous in the neighborhood since she was a Miss Korea.

Ever since she dyed her hair, a lot of people copied her.

It looked nice, so I dyed mine too.

Wouldn't it be fun to live... like a celebrity all your life after being a Miss Korea once?

A woman has to be beautiful, right?

Is everything okay with Tae Oh?

What do you mean?

Why are you asking that all of a sudden?

It just looks like he has a lot on his mind... regarding the recent business trip and the investment issue.

Did Je Hyuk say anything to you?

No, he hasn't.

I see.

My goodness.

You came home early, honey.

Yes. Honey, Sun Woo is here.

Hey, Sun Woo.

You're late. You must be tired.

I need to work really hard.

I don't have a competent wife like your husband.

She brought us some of her homemade braised short ribs.

Gosh, I can't wait to try them.

An associate director that can cook.

Tae Oh is one lucky guy.

He's very considerate to women.

Isn't he, Sun Woo?

By the way, didn't you get your wedding photos?

I'll go over to take a look.

You had to go through that dull photoshoot again?

Why would you say it's dull?

They did it to celebrate.

Plus, she didn't even get to wear a proper wedding dress... because she was with Joon Young.

Tae Oh did it to make up for that.

How sweet is that?

Well, he's a pro when it comes to wooing women.

You guys should rest. I'll be off now.

You're leaving? You don't need to see me off.

Bye, Sun Woo. Bye.


I'm done with the dishes.

Thank you for dinner. No problem.

Was Je Hyuk home?

Yes.

I'm going to shower. Okay.

(We hope you visit again on another beautiful night. Huiwon)

(Huiwon)

So you actually went there at dawn?

And you even went through his clothes and cell phone?

Just because of a strand of hair?

Why didn't he tell me about his new secretary for an entire year?

Isn't it weird?

I don't think he tried to hide it from you.

He probably just didn't bother to tell you.

Or maybe you just forgot that he told you.

I'm bothered by the fact that she got a divorce.

Not all divorced women have an affair with married men.

She told me he always got off work at 5pm.

But he told me he gets off work at 7pm.

Why did he lie, and what does he do during those two hours?

Then that means his secretary is innocent.

That's when she picks up her kid from school.

I'm a little bothered by Ye Rim as well.

My goodness.

You're even suspicious of Je Hyuk's wife?

Isn't it also weird that he doesn't keep his cell phone locked?

It's like he wants me to see it.

Do you think he knows that I'm suspicious of him?

You're scaring me. You're not... being normal right now. You know that, right?

Is that how it seems? Did you get some sleep?

You're being oversensitive.

I hope you're right.

Get some sleep, and don't work too hard.

I'm really worried about you.

I guess it's tiring to live with a handsome husband.

But then again, we're in our 40s, but Tae Oh looks like he's in his 30s.

I lost 1kg.

I keep losing hair.

And my skin keeps getting drier.

Are you taking the medicine that I prescribed for you last time?

How can I take medicine when I can't even eat properly?

Why can't you eat?

My gosh.

Who knows what's inside the food we eat?

Don't skip your meals, and take your medicine.

If it doesn't get better, you can come back then.

He always leaves work right at 5pm.

Wait a minute. Are you refusing to treat me?

No, that's not it.

I just don't feel very well.

Does it itch?

Dr. Ji.

Your heart is suddenly racing... and you feel nauseated, right?

You have the same symptoms as I do.

I need to take a break.

But...

I don't have any more appointments, right?

No, but you do have some reports to approve.

I'll do them at home.

Please tell Dr. Kong I left early because something urgent came up.

Yes, doctor. Have a nice day.

Where are you going?

(Sul Myung Sook)

Sorry, Ye Rim.

I'm still at work.

Can Joon Young stay with you after his piano lesson?

Sure. He can stay as long as you need.

Take your time.

Thanks. See you later.


This is a sure thing! I don't have any!

Give me what you have.

I really, really don't have any!

Darn it.

Pipe down.

What's wrong with you? Let go of me!

Come home. Let go of me!

Okay, okay.

Darn it.

Help me.

Please help me.

Sorry. She's just drunk.

Why did you drink so much?

I have to go now! I don't have any.

Hand it over.

Get over here.

I don't have any. This is the last time! I swear!

Please trust me. Please!

Come on.

I don't have time!

Get off! Give it.


(Family Love Long-term Care Hospital)

Thank you.

(Family Love Long-term Care Hospital)

(Nurses' Station, Information)

Hello. Hello.


Mother.

He didn't say you were coming.

What are you doing here?

I haven't visited in a while.

I guess you had a break in your busy schedule.

How do you feel?

It's always the same.

It wouldn't be shocking if I were to die tomorrow.

Don't say that.

Did you bring these?

Yes. Why did you bring flowers?

It's a waste of money.

I'll put them in water.


Sun Woo.

Thanks.

Mother's so happy that you came.

I've been too inattentive.

You should've asked me to come with you.

You're busy. I didn't want to burden you.

I've been coming alone for a while.

She got worse, so I come almost every day.

What?

I jumped to conclusions. Sorry.

When Mi Yun said you left work at 5pm...

You always said you worked until 7pm.

Did you think I was doing something during those two hours?

Is that why you came here?

Sorry.

I must have lost my mind.

Sun Woo. Forget I said anything.

I'm so ashamed.

Why are you being stupid and worrying about things like that?

I'm fine now.

I'm really okay now.

Really?

Go back to Mother.

Thank you for the vase. My pleasure.

Thank you for the cake.

Okay.

Is she sleeping well?

She has a hard time at night, so we upped the painkiller.

She missed her son so much all this time.

He didn't come at all since the Lunar New Year.

All he did was call now and then.

I've been coming alone for a while.

She got worse, so I come almost every day.


Did something happen between the two of you?

No. Not at all.


Good night, sweetie. Mom.

Yoon No Eul says... her mom has a boyfriend.

Yoon No Eul? Who is that?

You saw her last time. She's the daughter of Dad's assistant.

Does her mom have a boyfriend?

What kind of person is he?

I don't know.

She just told me her mom got a boyfriend after the divorce.

But No Eul says she's okay with it.

If it happened to me, I'd feel betrayed and angry.

I think she's pretending to be strong. Don't you agree?

Go to bed now.


Where's Joon Young? Is he asleep?

Yes, he is.

Are you going somewhere? Yes.

There is an event the president of my high school alumni is holding.

He's someone influential in our community.

Apparently, his wife used to be a Miss Korea.

She's holding an exhibition, so I thought it'd be good to attend.

Do you mean...

Uhm Hyo Jung?

Do you know her?

Yes.

I was invited too.

How?

She was a patient of mine.

I see.

That worked out. I'll come with you.

I only have to get changed.

Okay.


Don't make any mistakes in front of the president.

He's the one with all the money in this town.

I really need to do well with my newest project.

I might need his help.

Why are you frozen? What?

It's because I always feel sorry to you.

I feel bad for making you worry about my mother too.

You gave me so much support when I founded the company, but it's still unstable.

I never got to pitch in and pay for our living expenses.

I just feel sorry about everything.

Do you?

Anyway, I'll make this project a huge success...

so I can repay you for all the hard work you've done.

I know you're really busy.

I can see so much passion in your recent works.

I can see them burning in passion.

I'm a passionate woman.

Your works really shine.

Really?

The keyword here is passion. Passion.

Yes, exactly.

It's not a landscape painting. Why talk about empty spaces?

Honey. It's still life.

Let's raise our glasses.

I should swirl it.

Cheers. Cheers.

Hello, sir.

Excuse me.

Hello.

I'm a 28th graduate of Busan High School.

My name is Lee Tae Oh.

Congratulations on your wife's exhibition.

Thank you.

By the way, Mr. Choi.

When are you treating us?

I'd be happy to.

There's a sushi place I frequent in Wakayama.

The chef called me to let me know that they received a good tuna.

What do you say? Shall we go to Japan together for some tuna?

No, we can't do that. We'll eat in Busan... to support regional development.

No, if we're eating tuna, we have to go.

Are you... Yes?

Lee Sang Do's son by any chance?

Yes, I am.

Who is that?

You know, the guy who was in plays a long time ago.

It's okay. People can forget.

I have a stiff shoulder these days. My arm won't go up.

It won't? Gosh.

Councilor.

Gosh, why did you come so late?

You should've been here from the beginning.

Congratulations.

Gosh. Just a minute, honey.

Gosh, Dr. Ji.

This is Dr. Ji Sun Woo from Family Love Hospital.

I told you about her, right?

I owe a lot to her.

Yes, I heard a lot about you.

My wife kept on complimenting you and told me you're a great doctor.

This is my husband. Gosh.

Is that so? Yes.

He runs a regional event company called T.O. Entertainment.

He makes movies too.

I see.

For the development of our community, I hope you'll take an interest in my husband's business.

When did you say you graduated again? 20-something?

I'm a 28th graduate.

28th? Is that the same year as Councilman Cha?

Yes, Do Chul graduated in the same year as I did.

I see.

You also make movies? Yes.

If you have a good idea, Mr. Choi might invest.

Hold on. He has lots of money.

He'll have enough.

You need support for that.

My husband is so supportive of me.

He's a hard worker. I'm not that good.

Gosh, don't say that. Come on.

We can omit that.

Congratulations, ma'am.

Congratulations. Thank you.

Dr. Ji, you're not only successful in your career, you have a handsome young man as your husband.

You're so competent.

We're the same age.

Is that so?

People must tell your husband that he looks young all the time.

Yes.

Hey, Mom. Are your friends here?

Yes. Oh, right.

Dr. Ji, this is Da Kyung. She's my daughter.

Hello.

Congratulations. Thank you.

Here.

I've always wanted to be friends with you.

Would you like to continue this relationship and be friends?

What do you say?

If you and your husband are free tomorrow, would you like to come to a gathering?

Tomorrow?

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday.

A few of our alumni are planning to meet up.

I'm sure they'll all love... to have you join us.

I'd be more than welcome to join.

I wonder what your husband likes.

I should get him a nice gift.

Cheers.


Are you okay?

I'm sorry about what happened that day.

I was in a hurry to go somewhere.

What could you have done?

It wasn't your problem to deal with.

You wouldn't have been able to do much anyway.

Who was that guy?

My boyfriend.

He was like that because he was out of money.

He's not normally like that.

I saw everything with my own eyes.

Do you really want to defend him?

I envy you.

You have solutions to all your problems.

Life is easy, isn't it?

What's that supposed to mean?

Normally, people stay miserable... because they're not brave enough to escape.

That's just an excuse.

You know that, right?

You need to have what it takes to be able to take a step forward... from where you collapsed.

But you wouldn't know because you have it all.

I'm no different.

Does your husband beat you?

Then what? Does he steal money from you?

I think he's cheating on me.

And I'm scared that it might be true.

Why are you scared of that?

You just need to find evidence and kick him out.

Isn't life supposed to be easy... for successful women?

Marriage isn't that simple.

It's not a game...

where you can get up and leave just because you're out of money.

It's a desperate matter... that not only involves my own life... but also the life of my child.

I'm disappointed...

that a successful woman like you... is no different from someone like me.

(Min Hyun Seo)

Hello?

It is a woman.

Do you see her face?

What does she look like?

Take a picture or video.

Can you do that?

I can't get a good shot from here.

Hold on.

Hello, ma'am.

(Messages)

(Min Hyun Seo)

I couldn't get a picture of them together.

Did you see her face?

No, just the back of her head.

She had long brown hair and is about your height.

Ma'am. Take a look at this.

(Happy Birthday Sun Woo and Joon Young)

Oh no. I guess you don't like it.

That's not it.

It looks nice.

It's very pretty.

My son...

drew this image.

How cute.

I wish I had a son like that.

(Happy Birthday Sun Woo and Joon Young)

He worked on it for days... for his dad's birthday.

Joon Young!

What's wrong with your mom? She's so cute.

Did you have a nice day?

Get in.

There is a speed camera ahead. Slow down.

No Eul says she's coming too. Did you know that?

Mom. Mom?

You're going too fast.


Aren't we going to Dad?

Stay in the car.


What do you plan to do?

I need more concrete evidence.

You should check... your husband's trunk.

He hid something in there.


Happy birthday.

Happy birthday! Hey, you made it.

Happy birthday.

Happy birthday, Tae Oh. Happy birthday.

Happy birthday.

Hello. Happy birthday.

Happy birthday. Happy birthday.

Tae Oh. I guess Sun Woo is running late.

Yes.

Ye Rim! Coming!

Dad.

Hey. Where's Mom?

She's in the car.

Thank you.


Hello.

It's for you. Have a good one.


Why are you so late?

I thought you got into an accident. I was worried.

Can you give me your car keys?

I can't find the camera anywhere. I think it might be in your car.

It must be somewhere. Look for it later.

Let's go in now. People are waiting.

It's a special day.

I want to take nice pictures.

You can take some with your phone.

It's different.

You can go in first.


I see. That's why.


(October 14, Saturday)


Mom. Hey.

Did a lot of your friends come? Yes.

Right.

Dr. Ji, this is my daughter Da Kyung.

Hello.

(October 9)


Cheers. Cheers.

Really?


(Sul Myung Sook, Da Kyung, Son Je Hyuk)

Sun Woo left in a hurry in the middle of seeing a patient.

I think she might be going to you.

Be careful.

Cheers.

You better be careful for a while.

I think Sun Woo might be onto you.

Take care of your phone well.

Don't let anyone see it.


Everything was perfect.

Everyone that surrounds me... had me... fooled perfectly.


(A World of Married Couple)

Marrying you was the best thing I ever did.

I love you, Sun Woo.

Da Kyung teaches Pilates at the Pilates academy that I go to.

You should also visit when you're free.

Women need to work out as they grow older.

Are you seeing anyone?

I don't see him every day. I see him about 2 to 3 times a week.

He's married.

Did I make any mistakes last night?

Be honest with me.

Honey.

You're seeing someone, aren't you?
