In the meantime, Bo-Ra is having an adulterous relationship with her college sweetheart ll-Beom, whom she separated with when he left for the military service. Although she values the importance of keeping the family together, she's fascinated with Il-Beom's conspicuous love toward her as well as certain happiness she receives from the reminiscence of her youth.
