Last week, The Package took us on the vacation of a lifetime to the divine country of France. Stars Jung Yong HwaLee Yeon Hee and Yoon Park lead the all-star cast teaching us about the power of love and friendship. In the story, the South Korean travelers' pasts are as drastically different as they come, but their paths all brought them to the same serene location. A few of their stories were revealed during the first two episodes. I'm certain these backstories will play a pivotal role in how the drama will progress as the weeks go by.

Let's take a look at eight flashbacks that promise to be crucial to the story.

1. In the beginning of episode one, Yoon So So (Lee Yeon Hee) briefly thinks about her private wedding ceremony with her ex-husband. We can make a wild guess about the guy's identity, but it's not revealed in the first two episodes. We are dying to know who it is and why didn't their union last? 

2. During a photo op near the Eiffel Tower, Han Book Ja (Lee Ji Hyun) remembers the grim exams she recently received at the hospital. It seems to be a sign that she is in poor health, and her trip to France (with her husband) is on her bucket list.

3. In San Ma Ru's (Jung Yong Hwa) first flashback by the merry-go-round, we discover that his trip to France was actually his ex-girlfriend's idea. She found the package trip during her online search for the perfect vacation destination. 

4, Even if the memories are bittersweet, So So can't help thinking about happier times with her ex-husband when she hears the song "Aux Champs Elysees".  

5. As soon as Han So Ran (Ha Shi Eun) and her boyfriend arrive in their hotel room, she begins text messaging a man back home. Her flashback seems to hint at a date they went on before she headed overseas. If I had to guess, I think she was having an affair with a fellow co-worker. 

6. Ma Ru is constantly reminded of his past relationship when he is alone. He clearly remembers his girlfriend's promise to join him on their overseas getaway. Of course, promises are meant to be broken. 

7. When So So asks Ma Ru if he wants to see the Lovers on the Bridge, he remembers the moment he and his girlfriend broke up. In a later flashback, we discover their company's problems ignited the fight. 

8. Han So Ran's budding relationship with her rich co-worker is explored even more with a flashback of him giving her skincare products for her trip. I wonder how close they really are, and if her longtime boyfriend knows about him. 

Which flashback do you think will change the course of the story in The Package
