'A Piece of Your Mind' Episode 5: Seo-woo has confessed her feelings, will Jung Jae-in's Ha Won reciprocate?
The promo of episode 5 shows Ha Won ask Seo-woo if he should ignore her confession and act as if nothing happened. It isn't clear what her answer is, but she tells him her feelings don't make her sad
'A Piece of Your Mind' is about two people who have gone through a great loss try and get over the same. Seo-woo and Ha Won had begun to help each other through the process of grieving and with Ha Won's new discovery of an AI tech that can imitate the characteristics of a real person, both Seo-woo and Ha Won begin to heal. If not completely, then partially enough to be able to withstand the loneliness that comes with being left behind.
In that vein, the more that Seo-woo sees Ha Won grieve for Ji Soo, his first and only love after she dies in Norway; the more intrigued she is. Cosmic timing, or fate; Seo-woo got unintentionally mixed up with Ji Soo and Ha Won when she was hired by the latter to procure a voice recording for the former. In the process of procuring the same, Seo-woo befriends Ji Soo and the two become close in a matter of days because of the intense conversations that they have.
However, for a reason that even Seo-woo is unaware of; Ji Soo leaves to Norway and gets caught up in a snowstorm and is buried alive under snow. This leaves Seo-woo struggling to deal with the sudden loss, but in the process of grieving, she becomes close to Ha Won and realizes that she likes looking at him as he grieves. As he thinks about Ji Soo, the beauty of his love ironically enough has Seo-woo also fall for him. This Seo-woo confesses to A piece of Ji Soo -- that is the AI tech that she was handed by Ha Won which holds the characteristics of her friend.
In the previous episode, A Piece of Ji Soo is unaware that Seo-woo is conversing with her in the presence of Ha Won and unintentionally begins to question Seo-woo about her feelings for Ha Won. While Seo-woo is embarrassed, she doesn't want to act as if she doesn't feel the things she does and ends up confessing to Ha Won that she does like him and likes to look at him while he contemplates. Now, in the promo of the upcoming episode, we see Ha Won try to come to terms with this confession.
Ha Won even asks Seo-woo if he should ignore her confession and act as if nothing happened. Is she going to accept? That is unclear, but what is clear is that she tells him that her feelings for him is not something that makes her sad because it is not being reciprocated, but makes her happy just being on its own. While he does try to talk to her about it further, she refuses to hear him out probably because outright rejection might probably make her feel abandoned again, just as she felt when her parents' lives were lost in a forest wildfire.
