Elsewhere, after Jin-Hyeok goes to Dae-Chan’s restaurant, he joined by Hye-In who knows something is wrong with him. Jin-Hyeok’s father questions his wife meeting Soo-Hyun and asking Soo-Hyun to break-up with her son. She tells him that she doesn’t regret it although she knows what she did was wrong. Her husband is worried that how Jin-Hyeok will move on from Soo-Hyun as he is very emotional. Jin-Hyeok overhears their conversation, he then calls Soo-Hyun who doesn’t pick up his phone. He then rushes to her and wants to know why she didn’t tell him about meeting his mother. Soo-Hyun tells him that it is not the reason that she broke up with him.

The Final Goodbye?
Next day, Jin-Hyeok has seemed to come to terms with the situation, he is “normal” again. Soo-Hyun meets her mother and wants her to run an art gallery, her mother has other things on her mind. Jin-Hyeok’s father is not happy with his wife, Jin-Hyeok looks troubled at work. Woo-Seok’s uncle meets Soo-Hyun and tells her that Woo-Seok wants to give all his shares to her. Soo-Hyun declines the offer as these things don’t matter to her anymore. Jin-Hyeok finds out about Soo-Hyun moving to Cuba, his heart sinks more. Mr.Nam meets with Soo-Hyun and asks him why she broke with Jin-Hyeok. She tells him that she doesn’t want to be a burden to Jin-Hyeok anymore. Looks like Jin-Hyeok has made up his mind as well to leave Soo-Hyun for good. He starts to write the resignation letter but changes his mind and goes to Soo-Hyun’s office.
Broken hearts around the world looks like we will not get the happy ending we wanted. Although it looks that way I am still very confident that writers will give the ending to the leading couple that they deserve. This episode was too emotionally hard to handle but it is to be expected now that we are just one episode away from the finale.
I wish we got more of Woo-Seok in the next episode as we didn’t get much of him. Same with Mi-Jin and Dae-Chan their relationship seems to be on the backburner because of “other” people.
Looks like what started in Cuba will end in Cuba *fingers crossed*.
