Recap of Ep. 4: Although Kyung Joon moves in for a kiss, he retreats immediately, shaken that Da Ran didn't avoid his advances. Taunting and teasing her a bit, Kyung Joon asks if Da Ran had ever kissed Yoon Jae, to which Da Ran replies back quickly that she did, only when she was sleeping. After Kyung Joon questions Da Ran if the kiss really happened, she visits his house to drop off study material. While the two work together through the notes (with Da Ran untangling the math problems), Mari (miss A's Suzy) sends a text and a photo with the vegetable Kyung Joon to Kyung Joon, trying to figure out why "Yoon Jae" had lied to her.
Alarmed that Mari discovered the truth, Kyung Joon and Da Ran rush to the hospital. Kyung Joon lies to Mari, saying that Kyung Joon is in love with Da Ran, shocking Mari. Mari runs out to meet Da Ran and confirms that Da Ran will never fall in love with Kyung Joon (but we all know how long that will last). Satisfied with Da Ran's confirmation, Mari tells her disappointed aunt and uncle that she's planning to stay next to Kyung Joon in Korea.
Later, due to Da Ran's request, Kyung Joon calls Yoon Jae's mother, who makes cryptic remarks about their "marked date", in which the whole family will meet. Confused, Da Ran and Kyung Joon unlock Yoon Jae's phone and discover the passcode is both Kyung Joon's birthday and the date Yoon Jae's mother was talking about. Da Ran later opens up Yoon Jae's phone and looks through his texts, bothered about Se Young's text to Yoon Jae.
Da Ran and Kyung Joon make preparations for the home Da Ran planned to share with her husband. To make sure that Yoon Jae is the first one to try on the couple clothes and items, Da Ran doesn't allow Kyung Joon to touch them. Kyung Joon heads to his home, only to discover his aunt and uncle clearing it out and planning to sell it. With the rain pouring down and Da Ran waiting for Kyung Joon to confirm the apartment, Kyung Joon moves his bed and furniture back into his house. Angry with Kyung Joon for blowing off the appointment, Da Ran goes off on a rant only to become more caring and sympathetic when she sees Kyung Joon dripping wet and cold from the rain. She grabs all her marriage items and clothes for Kyung Joon, cooks him porridge, and gives him medicine before heading out to the hospital to talk to Yoon Jae's spirit.
The next day, Kyung Joon immediately goes to the bank and buys his house back from his aunt and uncle. Da Ran finds out and is furious with him, but later relents as she is now using it as her marriage house. As the two move furniture in, Kyung Joon gets a call from Se Young (Jang Hee Jin), who asks for "Yoon Jae's" answer to the house key she had given him. Shocked, Kyung Joon returns home where Da Ran finds the house key. Though he's tempted to tell the truth, he instead throws Se Young's key in the trash.
Da Ran is still bothered by Se Young's text and after catching snippets of her mother's conversation, she starts to put two and two together and realizes that the key was to Se Young's house. Kyung Joon calls Da Ran after being told that she rushed frantically away from Choong Shik (Baek Sung Hyun). He ends up seeing the ripped trash bag and runs to Se Young's home.
Da Ran tries the key, and the door clicks open. A tear rolls down her cheek as Se Young is about to open the door. However, Kyung Joon rushes in, and slams it closed with one arm as Da Ran begins to cry on his shoulder.

So glad that Da Ran opened the door, rather than having to painfully follow her around with Yoon Jae's idealized perfect image. And it was a really beautiful touch to have Kyung Joon close the door at that exact moment instead of him blocking the truth from her. Because she knows the truth now, he's there for the emotional support. Kyung Joon's character development and relationship with Da Ran is quite nice to see, as he's starting to care for her as a friend by deciding not to tell Da Ran the truth rather than going with his hasty conclusions in the third episode. Although I am a little discouraged by the preview as it seems like Da Ran is still clutching onto her perfect marriage with Yoon Jae, I know that there will be more than Da Ran's innocence in play.
Speaking of relationships, I love the symbolic touch of Da Ran prohibiting Kyung Joon to touch all the couple/marriage items, but then just ripping it open to take care of Kyung Joon. It was a little painful to see Da Ran obsess over Yoon Jae and neglect Kyung Joon. Her actions bordered on selfish as she demanded Kyung Joon to follow everything for Yoon Jae's sake. Giving Kyung Joon Yoon Jae's pajamas and the blanket is a nice touch and development for their relationship. However, the flow of the plot became a little jarring when Da Ran returned to the hospital and talked to Yoon Jae. Although it's perfectly understandable that Yoon Jae would be her top priority, it seemed like a step back for Da Ran to immediately begin worrying about Yoon Jae again when she began to become closer and more sympathetic to Kyung Joon. The couple socks were adorable, but it would have been more so if Da Ran had done it to protect Kyung Joon's body as she had only cared about Yoon Jae's body previously.
Any speculations about the relationship between Yoon Jae, Kyung Joon, Yoon Jae's family, and the 'Miracle' book? I'm thinking it's going to be something along the lines of Kyung Joon being a brother or half-brother to Yoon Jae, because I truly hope it won't end up being a makjang mess with Yoon Jae as Kyung Joon's father (they're only 12 years apart with Yoon Jae being 30 and Kyung Joon 18). I'm interested on how the character of Kyung Joon's father will play out.
