Eun Sang is in the orchard looking around. She sees Tan and Won from behind the trees.
Tan stands there, hurt. Eun Sang watches him with pity. The sprinklers come on, but Tan stays, getting wet. Eun Sang walks toward Tan, and they stand facing each other, wordless.
Eun Sang asks, “Are you okay?” Tan: “I’m not.” Eun Sang: “Your clothes are going to get all wet.” Tan: “Why did you eavesdrop?” Eun Sang: “So I can take your hand after counting to three and run if you are in danger.” Tan: “Then why didn’t you? The whole time you were watching, I was in danger.” Tan walks away.
(PICTURE 1 and 2)
Tan and Eun Sang head back. Tan is silent in the car and Eun Sang looks over at him cautiously.
Tan breaks the silence. “Forget what you saw.” Eun Sang replies, “I was going to. I’m just in a dream. A dream that is going to end when I wake up. Just a midsummer night’s dream.”
Tan crashes trying to avoid the boulders on the highway. The car is now stuck, and Tan is not getting cellphone reception. Tan asks, “You can’t drive, right?:” Eun Sang ends up trying to push the car out of the rut.
Tan decides to leave the car and go look for a maintenance shop before it gets dark outside. Eun Sang thinks those places might be too dangerous because of all those horror movies she has watched. Tan jokes, “Just stay here then.”But Eun Sang doesn’t want to be left alone and chases after him. Aw, these two are cute.
They are walking to a roadhouse. Beside the cute, Tan is curious to know what Eun Sang will do when her friend replies. Eun Sang tells him she plans to borrow money to buy a ticket back to Korea. Tan says she can borrow from him, but Eun Sang asks, “With what as collateral My kidney? I must seem very trustworthy to you?” Tan doesn’t reply. He just tells her that her friend replied.
The gas station/maintenance shop is closed. So they have to stay for a night at the roadhouse/motel. Inside the room, Tan gives Eun Sang a shirt to change into out of her dirty clothes. Tan starts to change, surprising Eun Sang. She quickly turns around, joking around that the plan is to be mistaken for a couple? Tan says, “Keep dreaming.” He changes and leaves. Eun Sang then reveals her perverted self. She says, “Darn, I should have looked.” Ha! Here, you guys can look all you want.
At the diner, Eun Sang jokes that she is an alcoholic, and Tan smiles. “You’re kinda cute.” Eun Sang throws right back at him, “Good you know.” Tan is totally smitten and stares at her with a huge grin on his face.
Eun Sang tells him to stop looking or she will ask him about the things he doesn’t want to reply to. Tan says, “What questions? Who is the person at the orchard?”
Tan: “The person I like most in this world.” She jokes about him being gay or being in love with his brother, and Tan’s yell scares her. She almost falls out of her chair, but Tan catches her. And we have that slow-mo and staring. Tan: “You’re an idiot.” Eun Sang: “What?!” Tan: “You almost got hurt.”
Now siting upright, Tan teases her, saying her face is red. Eun Sang says she is not getting red. She is just mad that she came all the way to the U.S. and she didn’t get to eat pancake. It’s something she always saw in movies as representative of America.
Tan says there is a good pancake house in LA. “Let’s go together if you to to LA.” Eun Sang scolds him. “Don’t keep making promises like that! If you don’t keep them, you will die!”
Back at the room, Tan says he will take the bed. Eun Sang is just grateful he found them a place to sleep. He wonders how she can be so positive when it’s his fault he has cause her this much trouble. She replies it is not because of him but because of the promise. Tan purses his lips in frustration.
Eun Sang wants to sleep but Tan is not ready to sleep yet. He forces her up and asks her why she wants Jeguk group to go out of business. Eun Sang find out he has looked at her SNS account and tells him to log out. She asks why he is curious: “Do you have stocks in Jeguk?” Tan doesn’t answer. He just tells her to stay up until he falls asleep.
Tan warns her to not think perverted thoughts. Tan takes long to sleep. ES like sto sleep. Tan: if you get in contact with that guy, when will you leave? ES: as fast as I can. Tan: what if i…. ES has fallen asleep. And once again, Tan catches her from falling hard. incredible cheesiness happiness but I am giggling here.
Tan just keeps staring and staring and falls deeper in love. Squee!
Next morning, R gets message. CY thanks her for the address to Tan’s house. R: If you are grateful, then please clean her up.
Tan and E are back. CY comes! ES looks very happy. CY expresses his worry. Tan snorts. Tan tells them to come in to the house. He is house.
E: Thanks, I’m going to my friend’s house. Tan: why? Stay, just borrow money from him. Tan list her reasons why he is indebted to her for causing her trouble. She should stay.
Cy recognizes Tan. He doesn’t know him. “Did I bully you in High school?” CY doesn’t reveal how he knows him.
The taxi is here and ES leaves with CY.
ES talked about how she ended up with tan. She had learned his name was Tan just back there. She didn’t ask because she didn’t want to talk about herself. “did he really bother you?” CY answers, “He didn’t bully me but he is not a nice guy.”
Fun time with CY. CY told BN about ES. Of course BN calls and gets mad. CY talks to BN. ES sees “I love cali shirt”
Tan is home at his beautiful house. Eating. Writing. Sees update of CY and ES’s date. “I’m annoyed!”
Tan: “it’s tomorrow.”
R waits at hotel to leave the US cuz she is mad. Gets phone call from Tan. He calls her. He knows she was going to do. R knows Tan has an agenda it seems. R talks to mom. Mom tells her that she is going to say that Tan wanted to see her, not the other way around.
Official mom and Esther talks. Esther says something that lets us know that Esther lied and said she gave birth to Tan. Esther tells mom about her marriage. She asks about Tan and Young Do. Did they fight? Mom looks like she didn’t know that they two are not friends anymore.
YD and Myung So. There is photo of Tan and YD as good friends on all.
YD gets calls from dad. They do judo together. Dad keeps winning.
Dad complains about YD not doing his work. Do you know why you keep losing? One, you’ve never beaten me. YD: Cuz I’m more like mom than you.
Dad: 2) you attack more than you need. Go pick up R at airport.
R thanks Tan for spending time with her. Tan: I like shopping with you. Anything else it will seem like we are dating. R asks about ES. Tan says it happened the way R wanted. She gave the number to CY, right?
YD calls R. He complains that she doesn’t need to be picked up. Tan asks is YD is doing well. R says YD is doing all what you two use to divide up.
R suggest pancake. Tan suggest they go the pancake place Tan talked about to ES. He is open to R about hoping to see ES there. R says let’s bet if she is there.
ES is really there. Tan sees her. R asks if they made a promise before. Tan says let’s leave for you. But R is now mad. How is this for her now?
CY and R are talking for the first time although they recognized each other as school mates. Tan: Get up. R to ES: it’s our engagement anniversary. Tan gives up.
R asks how CY and ES know each other. CY: we are childhood friends.
CY reveals they came here because ES wanted to come here to this pancake place.
Oooh, we learn that Tan dated BN before. R criticizes ES for hanging out with someone who has a fiancé. Tan takes her out of there.
Tan and R. Tan: we met when were were ten. At 13, you like Won. You called me a child. At ten you seemed like you were smart. Right now, you seem dumb. I’m not worth your attention.
R and Won. They’ve avoided YD’s Zeus hotel chain. Won and R both give vague answers about meeting Tan. R wants to follow Won because she doesn’t want to be alone and just wait for a phone call.
Won is at his birth mom’s grave. Mom was a country girl (made wine and stuff) and got married to rich guy. Hard for her. Mom made a wine called Won.
Won has ever taken Tan here. R is the first. R says Tan will be jealous that she got to come. Uhm, these two should end up with each other.

Yoon and Esther meet with YD’s dad in the elevator. Tension.
Yoon and Esther exchange convo. 20 years ago, Esther got engaged to someone else. Esther pushes Yoon’s buttons.
Tan calls Yoon. Yoon lies that Won is on his way back to airport. Tan learns that CY is Yoon’s son. Tan calls CY. Tan wants to talk to ES. Tell her to call me.
Sis still hasn’t come back. CY tells ES about Tan. ES decides not to call. “I won’t see him anymore after tomorrow, anyway.”
Tan waits for phone call but nothing. ES has left her socks to dry outside but she forgot to pack them.
ES writes message on University wall, “It was like a midsummer’s night dream. Now I am disappearing. Like yesterday’s dream. Bye.”
Tan has come to take R to airport. R asks if he has any plans to return to Korea. Tan: always but I don’t have the courage. R: you need courage? Tan: yes.
R hugs Tan. ES sees this. Darn. Tan sees ES leave and calls out to here. “Cha Eun Sang, stop right there.” (PICTURE 8)
