In the second episode of the series, Yoo Hyun Woo (Song Joong Ki) reincarnated as a young Jin Do Joon after he was shot. After the events, the protagonist is still in deep shock after becoming the youngest son of Jin Yang Cheol (Lee Sung Min), the first chairman of the Sunyang Group.

Later, the boy had to attend his father’s birthday party when he saw Jin Young Ki (Yoon Je-Moon) and Jin Sung Joon (Kim Nam-Hee) stealing something from his father. Jin Do Joon warned Jin Do Joon not to say anything about it, stressing that he is the heir to Sunyang Group and people will believe him.

Jin Do Joon was undeterred, angering Jin Sung Joon. He was just about to beat up the child when the adults arrived. Instead, he blamed the child for breaking the vase.
