Before she can delve too much into that uncomfortable thought, she gets a text that makes her happy, and she runs to show it to Byung-hoon. Min-young heads next door to greet Seung-pyo with a tentative hello. Watching incredulously are the two thugs, who realize that Master was all twisted up in knots over her. And it really is very sweet to see Seung-pyo smiling again, almost in wonder.
Our new Cyrano client seems like a hoot right from the get-go: Then she identifies each employee with uncanny details: Byung-hoon is the cocky, self-assured one; Min-young likes to butt her nose into things; and Arang is a student busily saving up his money like a good little squirrel.
The Dickensian names on this show crack me up. Hae-shim cameo by Yeh Ji-won is a kind, understanding nurse who takes care of Grandma in the senior ward. She also likes a firefighter named Chul-soo Im Won-hee , whom she runs into every so often on fire drills at the hospital.
One day Hae-shim gets stuck doing the second-story balcony jump demonstration onto pads below and Chul-soo encourages Hae-shim to fight her fear and jump. Byung-hoon is eager to talk fees, which earns him disapproving looks from his team. He awkwardly offers a discount, which I find adorable because when was he one to be shamed into politeness before? I do appreciate that this is a consideration, since the matchmaking meddliness of elders is no joke.
Moo-jin offers to take the recon trip to the hospital to confirm, since he can visit his grandmother as a cover story. He apologizes, not having realized this would put her so ill at ease, but Hye-ri tells him to go on and run his errand while she waits outside. Granny finds Hye-ri sitting alone and offers her a lollipop to help with the gloomy face. Hye-ri explains that her older brother spent the end of his life in a hospital like this. On to the mission.
She sends him to retrieve Hae-shim, and then Moo-jin locks the door on them after cutting the lights. They decide to wait it out for now, and in the meanwhile Moo-jin takes his grandmother out for some air. The air in the locked supply room gets stifling, probably more from the tension than anything. Mirroring the scenario is the one in the surveillance van, with Min-young and Byung-hoon feeling similarly awkward and ignoring the reason for it.
Hae-shim admits that the one nice thing about this is that they get to be alone together. She pretends she was fooled by Granny too, and though he seems pretty aware of the ploy, he agrees to stick around.
The Cyrano team is dispatched to various areas of the tower to keep an eye on the couple. Hae-shim takes a look at the thousands of locks fastened by happy couples as little tokens of their love, but the sight makes Chul-soo even more uncomfortable, if possible. Hm, a painful past experience, perhaps? Or a lost loved one? In any case, he excuses himself with an apology and runs off. Seung-pyo looks to be warming up even more to Min-young after her show of faith in him, and he calls her just as she pulls into the driveway with Byung-hoon.
He invents an excuse to ask her over, while Byung-hoon sniffs in his pettily jealous way. He reminds her of her earlier question, asking if he had anybody he wanted to cook for. Well, he does now: I like you very much, not as a teacher, but as a man.
Can you accept my heart? Firefighter has a woman. Byung-hoon instructs him to keep tabs on him. Min-young is confused, since her research had him being single for the past few years.
The contact makes them freeze, and Min-young escapes with pounding heart. Time to shake up this joint.
