Lee Jung In has been going out with Kwon Ki-seok for a long time and they had become too comfortable with their relationship that they often take each other for granted.
One day Ki-seok asked that they should get married or at least they should start living together so they could eat together, sleep together, go to work together and see each other more often.
Jung In was not particularly enthusiastic about this idea perhaps because she was asked so matter of factly, there was no romance to it. It sounded more like out of convenience.
Earlier that day, she met Yoo Ji-ho, who was so cute and attentive. He was the pharmacist, who let her off not paying for the hungover panacea she had taken because she left her purse at her friend’s house. He even gave her the money enough for a taxi.
He gave her his phone number which she memorised by heart.
She went back to the chemist to pay him back. He asked her to go out to dinner with him but she declined.
She then left but he went to chase after her (I was actually rather worried that he left the pharmacy unlocked, anyone could have taken lots of drugs and medicine off the shelf) but was gone.
Jung In went to her friend’s house to share a take-out. She was getting the food from the delivery man when Ji Ho turned up.
Jung In immediately quizzed Ji Ho if he was following her.
Ji Ho remained silent and climbed the few steps leading to the above apartment.
Jung In was embarrassed and texted Ji Ho to apolosige.
The next thing was Ji Ho running under the falling snow towards the pharmacy where Jung In was waiting for him outside.
Ji Ho invited her inside the pharmacy where it was warm.
Over cups of tea, Jung In blurted that she has a boyfriend.
Ji Ho quickly replied that he has a son, he was a single father.
Jung In assured him that there was nothing wrong with having a son. She then told him that she would like them to be friends, that’s all.
Ji Ho said that he was not comfortable with just being friends.
