Nothing had gone back to normal when Ha Jin had awakened. Han-na was still sleeping on her bed and the seriousness on Ki Joo's eyes confirmed the reality of what she heard last night.
"Ha Jin, what Han-na had said..."
"I don't want to hear it," Ha Jin quickly said. "Not now. Maybe I'll just wait until So Joon remembers everything."
She took her phone and dialed So Joon's number. He answered on the second ring.
"Good Morning," he sweetly said and her tears just poured like rain. "Thank you for helping me sleep last night. Did you sleep well?"
"I did," she sobbed.
"Are you crying? Do you have a cold?"
"I'm fine," Ha Jin said, controlling her tears. "Han-na came here last night and we watched a very sad drama. It made me so sad that up until now, I am crying."
"I'm sorry, my sister disturbed you again."
"It's okay," Ha Jin said and she really could not stop her tears from flowing. "Can we have breakfast together?"
"Of course," So Joon said. "I'll be there in a short while."
"Take care on the road."
"See you later."
"You are strangely quiet today," So Joon said when they were having breakfast on a café near G cosmetics. "And it seemed like you cried a bucket. Is the movie really that sad? Or did Han-na tell you something depressing?"
"The drama is terribly depressing," Ha Jin said. "I could not help but cry whenever I remember parts of it."
"How can I ask you about that drama when you are crying whenever you recall parts of it?"
Ha Jin only stared at him with what seemed like a torn expression.
"Just tell me about it later," So Joon said. "Maybe you will feel better once you start working."
"It is about a man who thought he had a perfect life but it shattered when he discovered the truth about himself. He had this nice family who dearly loved him... but he suddenly learned that he was not really part of the family. Depressing, right? He lived his life believing they were his family and one day he will find out that they were not."
"Yes, it is depressing," So Joon said, smiling at Ha Jin. "But it really doesn't matter as long as that family he grew up with dearly loved him."
"Do you think so?"
"What did he do after he learned the truth?"
"I don't know."
"You don't know?"
"I didn't finish the story," Ha Jin sighed. "It was too depressing for me that I stopped watching it. I only get to the part where he learned the truth."
"You don't like those types of stories?"
"It's just too sad for me," Ha Jin said.
"It's a typical drama twist, isn't it?"
"You're right. I thought I was already immune to it but I was wrong. It's different when you liked the character so much. For me... he doesn't deserve that."
