'Was it Love' Episode 4: Dae-o mistakes Yeon-woo for Ae-jeong's husband, tries to dig deeper into her life
At the end of episode 3, Dae-o, who is actually writer Cheon Eok-man, finally agreed to work with Ae-jeong after realizing that she is the only one who would be able to help him complete his first novel that is still left with an open ending. It did become a popular work of his, but considering that he had written it after his heart was broken because Ae-jeong left him, this is a great chance for him to make his work complete. In episode 4 of 'Was it Love,' Dae-o not only agrees to work on the film as a writer but also speaks to investor Pa-do to consider him as the director of the film that the two will be working on. He is dead set on the idea that if this story was to be made into a film, it can only be made by him and Ae-jeong - as no one else can understand it better.
Surprisingly for Dae-o, Ae-jeong recalls his time as a director when the two of them were in college, and tells Pa-do that if he is now the same artiste than she should welcome him on board with open arms because he is that good. After convincing her investor/moneylender of Dae-o's credibility the two soon begin to work on the scenes and casting together. Dae-o learns that Pa-do has two rules for Ae-jeong to be able to produce the film - to sign him up as writer and Ryu-jin as the lead role.
Ryu-jin is approached not by Ae-jeong but by Dae-o to be a part of the film, and at first, he refuses. He doesn't want to be a part of the film. Dae-o believes that it is because Ryu-jin is set to be a part of a Hollywood film soon. So Ae-jeong approaches Ryu-jin's agency to submit the scenario and proposal, and she successfully hands it all over after working really hard on it for days. While she is busy, however, her daughter is out trying to find who her father really is. In this attempt, the number that she had found in her mother's phone leads her to Ae-jeong's senior Ryu-jin, who is a top star. Ryu-jin freaks out after receiving this message and he also begins to wonder if Ha-nee is his daughter.
The one scene that Ryu-jin recalls as he looks at Ha-nee's message is of consoling Ae-jeong after she has had a fight with Dae-o. Did something happen between Ryu-jin and Ae-jeong then? We don't know more because that is expected to be revealed bit by bit in the future.
Dae-o, on the other hand, after having met Yeon-woo at the hotel ends up believing that he is Ae-jeong's husband. When Ae-jeong also mentions her daughter during a conversation with Dae-o, he ends up believing that she now has a family. The only question he has for her is why her husband is not worried about the huge debt that she has incurred. When he does try to ask Ae-jeong this, he ends up insinuating that her life is going downhill and ends up facing her wrath instead. It isn't until the end of the episode, when Dae-o meets Ae-jeong's colleague, does he realize that his former lover is not married and is a single mother.
The episode ends the moment he decides to confront Ae-jeong and that leaves us wondering what the future holds for Ae-jeong and her daughter Han-nee.
