The minute Oh Dae-o reversed his car and splashed water on Yeon-woo as he confessed to Ae-jeong in episode 5 of 'Was it Love', it became clear that he still had feelings for Ae-jeong. He is not over his first love and his actions are a result of his jealousy. In episode 6, we see Oh Dae-o aka author Cheon Eok-man act out of turn or cross lines that the two professionals have at work with Ae-jeong and this leads to one outburst at the end of the episode where he is seen confessing to Ae-jeong that he still likes her the way he used to in the past.

The episode begins with Ae-jeong preparing to meet actor Ah-rin now that Dae-o has managed to set up a meeting. What she is not aware of is the connection that Ah-rin has to Dae-o, neither is he for that matter. We see a flashback where Ah-rin as a highschool student with a different name and look, is just about to approach Dae-o with a shy look on her face, but before she could, Ae-jeong runs past her and straight into Dae-o's arms. So Ah-rin doesn't like Ae-jeong being anywhere near Dae-o and after all these years at that.

So during the first meeting, Ah-rin ignores Ae-jeong completely and concentrates only on Dae-o. She even tells both Dae-o and Ae-jeong to rework the project because she finds the leading lady in the novel unimpressive. This comes right after her manager speaks about the novel being about Dae-o's first love. So it is clear that the animosity between Ah-rin and Ae-jeong is not going to disappear that easily. In fact, Ah-rin even tries to get Ae-jeong replaced by citing the fact that she is a first-timer and hence someone as prolific as Ceon Eok-man shouldn't take a risk with her. Ah-rin is of course not aware of the fact that both Ryu Jin and Dae-o are in the film because of her.

So when Dae-o refuses and also makes it clear that he will not work on the project if Ae-jeong were not a part of it, Ah-rin's hatred for Ae-jeong only increases. So when Ae-jeong approaches her at a party to thank her for the invite and for being a part of the project, Ah-rin has no patience and she tries to shirk Ae-jeong off. In the process, she ends up pushing Ae-jeong onto an oncoming waiter and there is food dropping all over the producer. However Ae-jeong doesn't get mad at Ah-rin, Dae-o does. She instead wants to help Ah-rin calm down. Dae-o cannot comprehend how one person can be so okay with accepting the short end of the stick all the time in life, but Ae-jeong doesn't understand why Dae-o is getting so frustrated.

She addresses how he has continually been stepping over professional boundaries recently -- be it when Yeon-woo had confessed to her or now. That's when Dae-o loses it and tells her that he will not be professional with her because he still continues to like her and anything about her is personal for him. With Yeon-woo's confession, Ae-jeong was a lot more composed, but with Dae-o's she is shocked because the way they had ended things when they were in the university was not great. Now, between Ryu Jin and Dae-o, who is Ha-nee's father? Or is it someone we haven't yet met? Also, that entire scene with Ha-nee claiming Ryu Jin to be her father was just his nightmare as we had suspected.
