Episode 4 ended on quite a shocking note. Ik-jun, who notices how stressed his friend is all the time, happens to mention to his sister, Ik-sun, about his situation. According to Ik-jun, the person to blame is his girlfriend, seeing that he believes this mysterious woman adds to Jun-wan's stress. Little does he know that the woman in question is his sister. Jun-wan has been worrying about Ik-sun every since her accident. He is also wary about her friendship with Se-gyeong as they spend all their time together. In a conversation with Jae-hak, he convinces Jun-wan to start using his social media to grow closer to his girlfriend.
But as Jun-wan learns how to use social media, he notices the number of photos Ik-sun and Se-gyeong have together. It doesn't take long for the dreaded call after Ik-jun tells Ik-sun that Jun-wan's mystery woman has been stressing him out, she calls him to break up with him. Ik-sun says she has found someone else and doesn't respond when he asks if it is Se-gyeong.
However, after the two break up, Ik-sun realizes that she might need an emergency liver transplant. Ik-jun reassures her and tells her to come back to South Korea immediately so that he can tend to her. However, as she sobs over the phone, she begs him not to tell their parents about her condition and also not to tell Jun-wan. At this point, it seems as though Ik-sun has found out that they were dating.
While the couple has broken up, it seems as though Ik-sun was lying about finding someone else. She seems like she broke up with Jun-wan because she has been worried about his health and well-being and is afraid that his trying to keep their relationship working is taking a toll on him. But it looks like their breakup has done far more harm than good for Jun-wan. What do you think? Did Ik-sun find someone else? Or was she trying to help Jun-wan lead a more leisurely life? Sound off in the comments below.
