What to expect next in the K-drama 'Little Women'?

After the fourth 'Little Women' episode, we learn that In-hye (played by Park Ji-hoo), the youngest of the three sisters is seriously ill with Luigi's disease and needs surgery with more sessions of treatment in future to keep her healthy and alive. In-joo, the oldest of the four/three sisters also reveals her childhood mental trauma about their third sister, In-seon who passed away as a child. In-kyung (played by Nam Ji-hyun), the middle child has no memory of the child but In-hye somehow remembers her even though In-seon died before In-hye's birth.

Now that In-joo has lost the 2 billion won she acquired after Hwa-young's death, she is faced with the imminent need to get rich by using the ledgers worth 70 billion won in order to save her sister. In-kyung is adamant about never using embezzled money that In-joo insists on using while her true goal is to expose the politician and mastermind, Park Jae-sang. Park Jae-sang is responsible for many innocent deaths, the two older sisters are in an incessant battle between their needs and their ethics. However, the youngest of the three, In-hye is close friends with Park Jae-sang's daughter, Hyo-rin, and it is definite that the politician will use In-hye to get back at In-kyung.

'Are Do-il and Hwa-young the same person?'

Fans have started dropping in the most absurd theories about the upcoming episodes. One fan said, "I have this insanely dumb theory! What if Hyorin (In Hye's friend) is the fourth dead Oh siter? It looks like in the promo In Hye is telling that Yorin did that dieing sister painting." Another fan asked, "What if HwaYoung was in love with InJoo? Or perhaps HwaYoung & InJoo we’re in love with each other?" They continued, "It’s interesting how the camera focused on the way Do-Il & HY looks at InJoo, and the similarity is uncanny. It was reported that HY underwent plastic surgery when she was found. I still don’t think it’s her. So! What if Do-Il is HwaYoung?"

They added, "Or what if HwaYoung was Park JaeSang’s lover whom he left to marry his rich wife for greed, and his wife was trying to get rid of HY? Or maybe HY & PJS’s wife were lovers or perhaps siblings? Dammit! I’m so anxious for the next episode I can’t help but theorize." One more fan said, "Why do I have a feeling that Hwayoung and Sang-ah are in cahoots (or maybe sisters too?)"  Another fan said, "Pretty sure Hwayoung eonni is actually Park Jaesang other women. I’m expecting other plot twist like how powerfull great aunt is or where Jong Ho’s parents are? The 4th sister (as little women is actually story about 4 sisters) is answered so please bring me more plot twist."
