After a huge fight, she left her house to stay with her father but she was disappointed when he had another woman in her life. Nowhere to go, she decided to kill herself. However, she entered the same musical shop which sent her to 1985 and so decided to take her mother’s identity. She cooked up a plan to help her mother meet the love of her life and in that way, she would not have to be born.

But her plan had a major flaw as she was not sure if Yi-chan was her mother’s true love. She remembers her mother mentioning that the one she loved had a high spice tolerance. So she decided to check the band members spice level and everyone failed except for Yi-chan, further confirming that he was the one. However, since she did not check Eun-gyeol, it left her mind with doubts.

On the other hand, Yi-chan took Cheong-ah to the hospital but she was very wary of him since she scolded her the last time they met. Yi-chan apologises for his behaviour and they both go out for lunch. He also provides her with his fax number and they go on to become good friends. In the same hospital, Eun-gyeol is also admitted and the doctors try hard to rescue him.
