Eun-hyuk explains to Bong-hee that Ji-wook called him because he wanted him to take the case (Bong-hee’s case).  Bong-hee’s not sure whether it’s a compliment because she became a murder suspect just to make them reconcile.

Eun-hyuk does his awkward laugh again. Bong-hee asks Eun-hyuk why he is always smiling and laughing. Eun-hyuk replies if he does not do that then he can never approach Ji-wook again. He doesn’t know any other way to get close to Ji-wook. So heartbreaking.. Bong-hee is touched by his words and replies she can never be a prosecutor because she will try to understand someone’s crime and would rather plead for mercy. Eun-hyuk smiles at her comment and compliments Bong-hee for being kind. Bong-hee laughs at his comment because she’s a ‘murderer’. Eun-hyuk smiles at Bong-hee. P.s. He’s way too cute.

Both Bong-hee and Ji-wook are touched by his words, they stay quiet. Bong-hee cannot help but relate her past self to Hyun-soo.
