Having lived afraid of ghosts that appeared from time to time, Tae Gong Shil stands by the road on a rainy night and stops Joo Joong Won’s (So Ji Sub) car. Although in this episode, it seemed as if Joong Won was going to pass by Gong Shil pretending not to notice her but then a light flashed, leaving him with no choice but to stop.
At that moment, seeing a ghostly figure in the middle of the road, Gong Shil screams and takes hold of Joo Joong Won’s arm. Then as soon as she touched Joo Joong Won’s body, she didn’t see the ghost anymore. This passage is hinting at the fate of the two people.
The episode continues as more ghosts pop up out of nowhere and Gong Shil, terrified of spirits, eventually begins to follow Joong Won around, having found a savior as she feels secure when next to him.
