Sang-su tells her that she didn’t do anything wrong, but she feels sad for not being honest. Sang-su reassures Mi-gyeong that everything is fine.

He heaves a sigh of relief. In this scene, he really revealed his feelings. He cares too much.

However, Mi-gyeong refuses to break up with Sang-su and confesses to her mother that she loves him more than he loves her. At work, her father tells her that he doesn’t approve of Sang-su yet and wants a formal introduction. He suspects she is chasing him.

Su-yeong’s mother is almost crushed in front of her colleagues. She avoided telling her co-workers about her mother the whole time, but she had no choice but to reveal the truth this time as she runs to her mother’s aid. Su-yeong takes her mother to the hospital. Sang-su visits to check on everything, but Su-yeong resists his presence.

Later, Su-yeong ends up at the same bus stop as Sang-su. She doesn’t get on her next available bus, so Sang-su asks her if she’d like to go for a walk instead.

She gives Su-yeong some clothes she doesn’t want to wear anymore. Mi-gyeong asks Su-yeong if she came home from the hospital, and Su-yeong is ashamed to say “yes”. Technically, she did, but it was a long road back with Sang-su.

Mi-gyeong asks Su-yeong how her relationship with Jong-hyeon is going, and Su-yeong painfully has to have this awkward conversation she doesn’t want. Mi-gyeong tells her about the pressures of getting married as she gets older. she opens up and explains that she has met Sang-su’s mother, and marriage will be on the table. It looks like Mi-gyeong senses that Su-yeong has strong feelings for Sang-su, so she sets her intentions in hopes that she will back down.

When Mi-gyeong sees Sang-su, she tries to give him the keys to the new car, but he doesn’t want it. She tells him that she doesn’t want the car to gather dust. As they leave, Sang-su tries to return the car keys to her. Mi-gyeong gets upset and tells Sang-su to drive him or get rid of him. She feels rejected by his refusal to drive her.

The ending explained

Su-yeong tells Jong-hyeon that she gets angry when they fight over things the others find easy to solve. She gives money to Jong-hyeon, knowing that he is struggling with his finances. She tells him that he can either take the money or leave it. Jong-hyeon tells him that if he takes the money, he will feel guilty and they will experience the same problems again. Su-yeong leaves the decision to him.

Jong-hyeon decides to take the money and promises to pay her back.

Sang-su has a formal introduction with Mi-gyeong’s father and attends a golf course with him. The father tells him he doesn’t care about his past or if he loves him as long as he’s not a criminal. He specifies that he will give anything to his daughter. Afterwards, Sang-su tells Mi-gyeong that his father loves him very much.

Sang-su shows up for his meal with Su-yeong anyway, which is audacious, indicating that he rejected Mi-gyeong’s dinner invitation. Su-yeong can see him through the restaurant window, and he looks excited and nervous. This is the same restaurant where he stood her up when they were supposed to have a date. Sang-su looks out the window and sees Su-yeong walking away. It’s a vicious circle. Su-yeong calls Sang-su and leaves a message lying to him – she tells him she had plans with Jong-hyeon.

However, Sang-su is standing right next to her at the bus stop as she leaves this message. There is an awkward silence between them. Su-yeong looks at the bus route map and observes that life is like a “circle, where you end up at square one.” It clearly refers to their situation.

Sang-su asks Su-yeong for help and takes her to the ice rink to help clean it up. They clean it together, and again, they naturally enjoy each other’s company. Sang-su can’t help but admire her as she skates around the rink. Eventually, they look at each other longingly – Sang-su tells her that “he can’t do this anymore” (be friends), and he kisses her. She kisses him back and it’s a passionate moment.

Now it’s complicated.

Episode 10 brings a much-needed breakthrough, paving the way for the final six episodes of the series.
