Let’s talk about our features in this drama
In Episode 2, Jeong-hyeok shows Se-ri his very old phone and tells her that dialing “5” will connect her to his office, impressing upon Se-ri that she can only use it in a dire emergency.
She mentions that it is like a hotel concierge service and proceeds to bother him with her silly requests such as lack of body wash and shampoo, and her desperate need for an aroma therapy candle for her bath.
In episode 5, Se-ri is seen pacing in the house, getting excited as she thinks that Jeong-hyeok is returning home. She rushes to the gate and it is actually the village ladies paying her a surprise visit, with sympathetic faces for what they think is Se-ri’s betrayal by Jeong-hyeok.
They inform everyone that Seo Dan declared herself to be Jeong-hyeok’s fiancé, and that she has no morals. They then decided that Se-ri was dumped.
