What Secret Is Choi-Ung Hiding?

As the documentary shooting comes to a close, we get to see Ung and Yeon-Su coming this far together.

Their love-hate childish relationship has transformed into something deeper and more profound now as they spend time in each other’s arms after Ung’s devastating confession the night before.

Since the beginning of the show, we've seen Ung struggling with his Insomnia. In the previous episode, also Ung used the dog as a metaphor to display his nightmares.

Ung tells Yeon-Su about his parents crying every year during the fall and him getting nightmares about being abandoned constantly.

It’s heavy stuff and the tender and emotional way in which the series showcases their love and adoration for each other is spectacular and will make your heart heavy.

His confession about him being adopted hits very hard. This is the secret that Choi-ung was keeping inside since the last fall when he saw his parents crying.

With all this chaos inside him, Yeon-Su was his comfort. He was able to sleep peacefully beside her.

Their interactions are just adorable and Choi Woo-Sik and Kim Da-mi are just so cute together and their chemistry is mesmerizing.
