[opening theme music playing]


[music fades]

He was…

[unsettling music playing]

…my brother.

The person you just said you killed…

was my brother.

[tense music playing]

[Yun-seok] You stupid fucking scholarship kids.

[boy 1] Wait, he hit Ri-an?

[boy 2] Oh yeah. He’s dead, for sure.

[Yun-seok] Are you insane, dude?

You good? You all right?

[boy 3] He must be insane.

Ri-an looks pissed.

You nuts, douchebag? Throwing that ball at Ri-an.

It rolled over here. So I figured I’d throw it back.

I didn’t know that it would hit him. I’m sorry.

[scoffs] Are you blind, dude?

Are you mental?

‘Cause if the ball rolled towards you, you should’ve brought it over here.

You don’t ever throw it at Ri-an, okay?





Are you glaring at me?

You should be begging all day, and you’re glaring?


[Chan-min] Who the hell do you think you are?

Acting up? Piece of shit!

[Yun-seok] How dare you!

Can’t stand you, son of a bitch!

You’re a scholarship student!

Act like one, damn it!

[In-han] Stop it!

[Yun-seok] Little bitch!

You little…

[Chan-min] Crazy fucker!

[Yun-seok] What are you waiting for?

[Chan-min] Get him!

Out of the way, idiot!

[tense music continues]

[Yun-seok] Over there! Get that asshole!


[Yun-seok] Run faster, douchebags!

Hey, over there. That way, that way!



Every last dime you were gonna inherit.

You’re gonna hand it over.

This has actually been way overdue for quite a while now.

You should’ve been kicked out with your mother. [laughs]

And so,

really, I’m just trying to recover what was rightfully mine all along.


[echoes] Because you don’t deserve any of it.

You’re not worthy. [laughing]

Sign the papers and get it notarized.

That’s all I want, really.

How could you do such a thing?

Well, if you have a problem with it,

I’ll go to Dad and show him your little video.

[laughing echoes]

[music intensifies]

{\an8}Jeong Jae-hyeok!

I’m sure Dad would love it, wouldn’t he?

[music soars]

[music subsides]

You should think it over.

Let me know what you decide.

Keep the phone.

I have backups.


[strained breathing]

[In-han] Do you, uh, want this?

When you’re having a bad day, candy makes it easier.



[tender music playing]

[woman crying in movie]


[indistinct chattering in movie]

[both laughing]

Here, have one.

[laughs] You guys are quite similar, don’t you think?

[both laughing]

[In-han] Huh?

[music fades]



[Ha] The person you just said you killed

was my brother.

[breathing shakily]


lied about who you were.

‘Cause I had to find out what exactly happened here.

What my brother endured at Jooshin High.

Why they covered it up.

Why the school was so obsessed,

trying to keep it so quiet.

Jae-i, my brother wasn’t killed in a simple hit-and-run.

There’s gotta be a reason.

In-han was in the street.

The night of the accident.

So that’s what you really wanted.

More information.

That’s right.

At first, I did, but not now.

When I first came here, I was thinking that it could’ve been anyone.

“Who bullied my brother, and who killed him?” I really had to know.

But in search for my answers, and as I spent more time with you,

I got to know the real Jae-i.

When I said I wanted to make you smile and be by your side,

I meant every last word.

But don’t forget…

he was my family.

I need to find out how my one and only brother was killed.

So, Jae-i, I…

[breathes nervously]

…I need your help.

[sighs] Jae-i.


[rain pattering]

[electronic pop music playing]

You lay a finger on her again, and I’ll break it.

You’re brothers? You and In-han?

Yeah. Now it’s all coming together.

Now I can see why you kept bothering me and why you approached Jae-i.

What? Did you want revenge?

So you did something…

that would deserve it, Kim Ri-an.

[exhales sharply]



What do you want?

To end up like your brother?

My what?

[exhales sharply]

[both grunt]

[high-pitched ringing]

[electronic pop music continues]

[breathing echoing]

[muffled grunting]

[Chan-min] Lower your damn hands!

[boy 1] Damn scholarship kid!

[Chan-min] Move your hands, or I’ll move ’em for you! Come on!

[normal] He deserves way more than the ass-kicking we’re giving him!

[echoing thuds]

[panicked breathing]


[Chan-min] Did that hurt?

All right, come on. Get up.


[boy 1] What the hell? Jeez, you ruined the shot!

[boy 2] Come on.

[Jae-i] In-han!

[music fades]


[electronic pop music resumes]

[pained sigh]


Stop it.



Stop it.


[Jae-i] Stop!

[screams] I said, stop!

Please. I just…


…I just want you to stop.

[Ri-an] Are you okay? I’m sorry.

I shouldn’t have left you alone.

I should’ve been here. Here, right by your side.

I’m sorry.

[breathing heavily]

[music ends]



[ticking continues]




I wish you were here…

to help me understand what’s…

what’s going on.

[pensive music playing]

[Ba-da] So you’re saying Kang Ha is Kang In-han’s younger brother?

Apparently, they’re twins. Yeah, fraternal.

They were twin brothers?


‘Cause they were twins,

Kang Ha was adopted by his childless uncle and lived with him,

which is how it went over the school’s head

’cause they lived at completely different addresses.

Adopted by his uncle?

I thought stuff like that only happened on TV.

Between us,

isn’t it weird that Kang In-han’s brother came here?

He kept acting clueless and getting on Ri-an’s last nerve.

He also got closer to Jae-i, right?

He’s up to something.

Think so?

Maybe he suspected something was up.

[inhales sharply]

The accident that day was very bizarre. A lot of weirdness there.

[pensive music continues]

[woman] Go ahead, Ms. Han.

With your current grades, Hanguk High School has agreed

to give you a full scholarship and monetary support until graduation.

At Daehan High School,

students who graduate at the top of their class

get complete college tuition.

A school scholarship.

Sorry, but I already have all of these perks.

Graduating top of class here has more benefits.

I worked my butt off to come to Jooshin.

Kang Ha, the school cannot stand by

and allow one single student to disrupt the study environment.

Our duty is to look after the mental health of our students.

A duty we take quite seriously.

And in what way am I negatively affecting their mental health, exactly?


Every time they look at you,

they won’t be able to see anything else but In-han.

You would only serve to be a constant reminder of their trauma.

Bringing up In-han is taboo.




If you won’t transfer, we’ll expel you. It would be easy to justify.

Scholarship students are outsiders here at Jooshin.

So getting rid of one outsider…

Well, no one would bat an eye.


The choice is yours.

Transfer or expulsion.

[pensive music playing]


I don’t want either.

You see, I’m gonna prove myself by being the first to graduate with top grades

as a scholarship recipient.

And I’ll show these guys

what is truly fair and prove that they’re not special.

And I’ll show them what’s right and wrong.

Someone has to.

Because not a single adult here

is teaching them that.

Kang Ha.

Scholarship student Kang Ha of Class Two, Year Two.

Please process his expulsion, Ms. Han.

The reasoning? A disruptive student who threatens the school’s well-being.

Try it.

[tense music playing]

[woman] It would be easy to justify.

Scholarship students are outsiders here at Jooshin.

So getting rid of one outsider…

Well, no one would bat an eye.

If you can, I mean.

[music swells]

[music fades]

[Yun-seok] Jeez. I can’t believe this is happening.

That scholarship dick really pisses me off.

You should’ve taken care of him when I told you to.

I mean, you know I wanted to.

But, you know, Jae-i was acting weird.

Well, she won’t be involved from now on.

So make sure you finish the job.

For real? I’d be happy to.

Makes my job way easier.

I’ve been noticing he’s been making

the other scholarship students get ballsier.

We’ll put them in their place.

[Woo-jin] She couldn’t even stand up?


I’ve never seen her like that.

Her face. She looked so scared and helpless.

Don’t you think there’s a reason for it?

“A reason”?

For Jae-i suddenly leaving the country.

For why she broke up with you and pushed you away.

There has to be a reason for it.

Well, it doesn’t really matter why.

I’m only focused on one thing from now on.

Protecting her.

I’m never gonna abandon her.

I’ll stay by her side.

What about He-ra?

She asked you to be her boyfriend.

[pensive music playing]

She has you.

I can be her friend, and you can be more.

I think that’s a pretty good deal, don’t you?


The two of us getting married,

it’s something I think will benefit both the Jaeyul Group and the Gongseong Group.

It’s not a bad idea. Mm.

Not much longer till we leave. Are you making it count?

Yes. You could say that.

Still won’t carry a conversation.

You’ll need to get used to it.

I mean… considering

when we get to New York,

we’ll be seeing a lot of each other.

I’m getting out.

[Seon-jun] See you at the airport.

Why are you here, Ri-an?

Let’s walk together.

So do you feel a little better?

[Jae-i] I do.

[Ri-an] From now on, don’t go anywhere without security.

Especially at school.

Don’t leave my side for even a moment.

Why? You worried Kang Ha will kill me?

We have no idea… what kids like that are capable of.

“Kids like that”?

Don’t talk about him that way.

You know scholarship students aren’t any different than the rest of us.

Have you really not learned anything?

You saw I was with Seon-jun.

We’re leaving for New York together.

I barely got permission to go to school until I leave.

So don’t visit or call out of the blue like this and mess it up for me.

I don’t want any more trouble.

I can’t. I won’t let you go, Jae-i.

Did you forget? We’re not a thing.

I broke up with you. I don’t know why that’s not clear to you.

Even if I were to stay,

we’re not getting back together.

Can you at least tell me why?

When we’re together,

everything we touch gets destroyed.

I don’t know if it’s your fault or mine anymore.

At this rate, we’ll drag each other down and mess the other up.

And I’m so tired of hurting people.

[tender music playing]

So just stop it.

No. I won’t accept it.

These people?

I don’t care what happens to others.

Protecting you is all that matters to me.

Kim Ri-an.

I thought about it nonstop while we were separated.

Is it even possible for us to stay away?

The answer? Of course not.

So I’ve concluded… I need to keep you by my side

through thick and thin,

no matter where it takes us.

I don’t care,

even at the end of the world.

I’d rather spend it by your side.

This is way more than “like.”

This is “love”

Jung Jae-i, I…

I love you.

Well, I don’t.

I don’t feel the same way.


[distant laughter]

[He-ra] Wait. Why are you telling me that now?

[Jae-hyeok] Well, I was young back then.

[He-ra] Oh my God! You’re ridiculous!

[Jae-hyeok] I saw that you couldn’t find it.

But hey, it worked out for me.

[He-ra] Oh, honestly!

[Jae-hyeok and He-ra laughing]

[Jae-hyeok] I swear, I’m telling you!

[Jae-hyeok and He-ra laughing]

[Jae-hyeok] That’s hilarious.

[chuckles] Hey, Jung Jae-i!

[sighs] Gosh.

I was so worried when I heard you passed out.

Are you feeling better now?

I was surprised when I heard you were leaving.

It was all so sudden.

[invitation rustling]

[Jae-hyeok] Wow.

What a beautiful friendship. Really.

All right, you two, have a good time now.

See you, He-ra.

[Jae-hyeok chuckles smugly]

[door opens]

What are you doing here?

Delivering… an invitation.

We’re still seen as best friends by the public.

So I should at least throw you a farewell party.


Sure it’s not a celebration?

Well, I guess it could be a celebration, yeah.


Depending on Ri-an’s answer. I told him… how I felt.

Congrats. I hope that works out for you.

Are we done here?

Don’t get in between us.


I’m saying don’t rile him up or get him confused.

I’m not even asking for your help.

I just want you to stay out of my way, okay?

You can do that until you fly out, right?

And… you should, even if you don’t want to.

If you don’t, I might have to cause trouble.

What kind of trouble?


[Jae-hyeok] I do have something I can give you that you might like.

How do I put it?

This is something… that would give you the upper hand.

Now, what on earth could give me the upper hand?

Call me intrigued.

You’ll probably be shocked when you find out.

[both laugh]

[laughs] Hmm.

But, you know, um,

if I give that to you…

what do I get in return?

No idea. Yeah, I don’t know just yet.

But whatever it is, I’ll make sure it’s worth your while.

Whenever you want,

however you want it.

I’m going to do whatever it takes.

I’m not bluffing.

I will literally do whatever it takes,

whether you, Ri-an, or all of us get hurt. I don’t care.

[pensive music playing]


I forgot to tell you something funny.

The day we ended our friendship…

Well, on the way home, I cried.

I guess we really were friends deep down.

So, even though our friendship is over, I hope we can end it on good terms.

Just leave quietly with your dignity

so this doesn’t get messy.

Understand me?

[Jae-i sighs]

See you at the party.

Yoon He-ra.

[music fades]

I wish you well.

Would that be enough… to give you closure?

[invitation rustles]

The day of your party is the day I fly out.

Enjoy your celebration.

I’ll get out of your way.

[door opens]

[He-ra sighs]

[door closes]

[He-ra] “Enjoy your celebration”?

She always has to have the last word, doesn’t she?

[He-ra’s father] You never know. It might’ve been a sincere goodbye.

[He-ra] She wasn’t being sincere. She was taunting me.

Basically saying, “Have fun without me.”

I can’t stand her.

Well then, I guess I’ll teach her a lesson.

How dare she annoy my darling He-ra.

[He-ra chuckles]


Hey, Dad.

Listen. I want this party to be the best party ever.

Right down to location, DJ, my jewelry. Everything perfect and beautiful.

All right. Tell you what. I’ll get Mr. Park on the line, okay?

Are you serious?

You’re my favorite. What would I do without you?

[laughs gleefully]

[He-ra humming]


[He-ra chuckling]

[indistinct chattering]

[Tae-ho gasping]

[Yun-seok] Tae-ho.


This is fucking insane. You gotta be kidding me.

[Tae-ho panting]

This guy’s really the oldest son of the owners of Jaeyul Hotel?

Is your mother really a prostitute?

You’re a bastard?

[Chan-min] He even lied about living in the States.

His dad abandoned him.

He had nothing.

He went to the same school as the Kang brothers.

He got lucky when his dad took him back.

Then take this off.

Why are you wearing it?

So he’s what?

What do we call his kind?

Mom was a prostitute, but his father is rich.

We need a new name to describe someone like him.

Instead of half-man, half-beast… Half-rich, half-slut?

[laughs] Half-slut.

Wait. If he and Kang Ha both went to the same school,

that means he must’ve known everything the whole time.

[Chan-min] Yeah, he sure did.

So you were trying to trick us all along?

[cards shuffling]


Well, the thing is…

Jesus, he’s wasting our time.

Stop stuttering and spit it out. My fucking god.

Did you have fun trying to make fools of us, slut? Huh?

Yo. I asked you a question.


Did you enjoy it?

Huh? Speak up, scumbag. Was it fun?

[strained] I’m so sorry. I’m sorry.

Huh? Come on. [laughs]

Why so quiet? Put that down, jeez.

Spit it out, douchebag. Was it fun? Why aren’t you answering?

[Ha] Knock it off.

[unsettling music playing]

[Tae-ho] Kang Ha.

Hey, look who’s here now. [laughs]


It’s your old middle school bro.


[Tae-ho coughing]

That was one hell of a plot twist, huh?

We were trying to find dirt on you and dug up something else.

If you stay at this school, this douchebag’s done for.

So what’ll it be? He’s your friend, so…

Sounds like you should leave now.

And then we might let him stay.


[breathing heavily]

Who the hell are you?


Who are you to decide who gets to stay?

[Chan-min] Jeez, he’s popping off again.

[Ye-ji] What’s he saying this time?

You’re just a pathetic lapdog who bullies people for Kim Ri-an.

[unsettling music continues]

[students gasp]

[students gasp]


Ta-da! Pass these around.

Oh my God! It’s so pretty!

Invitations to Jae-i’s farewell party.

You’re throwing a party for her?

Of course. I’m her best friend.

Try to get as many people as possible to show up.

[unsettling music continues]

[breathes shakily]

[He-ra] What are you gonna wear to the party?

[Ye-ji] That dress from before?

[He-ra] The pink one?

[Ye-ji] No, let’s just go shopping later.

[He-ra] Hey.

[Ye-ji] Let’s just go.

[He-ra] Okay. Let’s do it.

[body thuds]


[Tae-ho retching]

[Tae-ho coughing]

[water running, stops]

[Tae-ho coughs, pants]

[Tae-ho spits]

[Tae-ho panting]

[music fades]

[Tae-ho coughs]

You all right?


[Ha sighs]

[breathes shakily]

[Ha] I’m sorry, Tae-ho.

I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that Choi Yun-seok gets off your back.

[Tae-ho] How?

Are you going to kill him or something?

Even if you did, then what?

Woo-jin, Ri-an, He-ra,

Jae-i, Chan-min, Ba-da.

Are you gonna kill them all?


Killing one of them won’t end this.

They’ll just keep being the monsters they are.


[Tae-ho] Let’s stop.

We should just call it quits.

I need to stay at Jooshin High. It’s what my father wants.

[voice breaking] I know how you feel.


I understand what you’re going through.

I get it.


[sobs] I’m just so scared, Kang Ha.

I can’t help you anymore.

[electronic music playing]



[electronic music continues]

[computer chimes]


[keyboard clacking]


[girls laughing]

I really said it.

[computer beeping]

[keyboard clacking]

[mouse clicking]


What’s going on? You’re not answering my calls or texts.

Avoiding me, huh?

[high-pitched ringing]

[music fades]

[computer beeping]

[unsettling music playing]

[Ju-won] Jae-i, enjoy watching what happens here from New York

once this is made public.

People like you and Ri-an are susceptible to rumors and controversies, right?

Look forward to it.

[unsettling music playing]

[music intensifies]

[He-ra] It’s someone at school, whoever sent you those messages.

Sent them from Jooshin High.

[unsettling music continues]

[music swells]

[music fades]


I… I’m sorry.

Really sorry.

[Ha] I thought

you weren’t coming to school anymore.

I’ll tell you…

whatever you want to know…

about your brother.

We were all out partying.

It was Woo-jin’s birthday, and they were bullying In-han,

so he ran outside.

[tender music playing]

That’s when the accident occurred.

He was tortured so much he couldn’t take it.

So much

he ran out into the street.

It was them, wasn’t it?

Choi Yun-seok, Kim Ri-an.

[Jae-i] It wasn’t.

I know you’re suspicious of Ri-an, but…

he wasn’t behind it.

It was my fault.

If he was never friends with me,

then In-han wouldn’t have been bullied by everyone at school.

So don’t blame anyone else.

Take it out on me.

[breathing heavily]

Please help me.

I’m being blackmailed by someone here.

I need to find them before I leave.

I don’t care if they’re just threatening me.

But Ri-an…

they’re trying to bring him down as well.

If it’s helping Kim Ri-an,

you’ll need to find someone else

’cause I have the same goal

as the person threatening you.

You said you would help me get through all this.

If Ri-an falls apart, I’ll fall apart too.

I don’t want him to get hurt.


And me?


I know it’s selfish,

but I can’t trust anyone else to help me…

except for you, Kang Ha.


I never thought…

you could be this cruel to me, Jae-i,

of all the people it could’ve been.

How could you ask that?

That I help Kim Ri-an.


[door opens]


[door closes]

[tender music continues]

[music fades]

[He-ra grunts]

[sighs frustratingly]

[girl 1] He won’t do it because of me.

Let’s go.

[girl 2] Okay.

[girl 1] Just go.

[girl 2] I’m so curious.

Well, don’t just stand there.

Waiting for me?

[scoffs] Open the door.

[Woo-jin chuckles]

[phone buzzing]

Who is it?

Doesn’t matter.

Are you dating someone?

Don’t be ridiculous.

I’m on edge lately. Don’t play games with me.

[Woo-jin sighs]

Why is that?

Because of Ri-an.

Or maybe it’s Jae-i.

Or because of you.

What are you saying?

You’re trying to eat the forbidden fruit, so you brought this on yourself

because you’re being greedy.

Why don’t you word it differently?

Is it so wrong? To want more?

Whereas, on the other hand, you do nothing to go after what you desire.

You never make a move.

We should be honest about what we want.

Better than lying to yourself.


You’re extremely honest. I respect that, He-ra.

But you can be too honest.

I’m worried about you, He-ra.

That, ’cause of your greed, you’ll lose everything.

Thank you for your concern, but I don’t appreciate what you just said.

I don’t see anything wrong with being ambitious with your life.

Thanks for the ride.


[He-ra] What’s going on?

[mysterious music playing]

[He-ra gasps]

[music fades]

[He-ra’s father] For my darling daughter.

This is for when you want to look your best.

[somber music playing]

[He-ra sighs]


What’s going on?


[sobs] I’m sorry.

What are we gonna do now?

What do we do?


[sobs] My baby.


My poor baby.

[crying] Oh, He-ra.

[unsettling music playing]

[Jae-i] Please help me!

I’m being blackmailed by someone here.

[unsettling music swells]

[music fades]

Why do you think they want us to come to Jae-i’s farewell party?

I know, right? They never invite us to their parties.

Why do they want us there?

Do you think they’re planning something? Like a big prank?

Well, now I’m scared to go.

[girl 1] I know.

I think… we face it.

Are you just gonna avoid them till graduation?

We need to fight back.

[woman] Why are you all here?

Scholarship students are not allowed in Special Teaching Room A.

[boy 1] We were waiting for our next class.

We figured the room is empty today, so…

Even when there aren’t classes in here, this room is still off-limits.

It’s reserved exclusively for the real Jooshin High students.

Whereas you’re only here due to the school’s charitable desire to help.

How dare you set foot in spaces meant for the special class students.

Clean everything up, then leave.

Come on. Clean it.

Right now!


Preparations are complete, but are you sure you’ll be all right?

If anything goes wrong, the consequences could be disastrous.

Especially if it gets back to Mrs. An.

[Ri-an] Make sure it doesn’t.

And make sure… that none of it goes wrong.

And if it does go wrong, and something were to happen,


it’ll be on me.

Be sure to call as soon as you get there.

I will.

You have nothing to worry about.

I’ll make sure I take good care of your daughter.

All right. Well, Seon-jun, I put my trust in you.

Oh, uh…

[Seon-jun] Yes, sir?

[Jae-hyeok clears throat]

[Jae-i’s father] Well, the exchange rate isn’t great right now…

Guess this is goodbye.

Safe travels, Noona.

[Seon-jun] Yes, sir.

Don’t ever come back here.

Besides, you have nothing left here.


Well, dear, we don’t want them to be late. They should be going.

Safe travels, all right?

[Seon-jun] We’ll let you know when we arrive.

Goodbye. We’ll be on our way now.

[car engine starts]

[pensive music playing]

[muffled electronic dance music playing]

[laughs] Later!

[“Put Me in the Ring” playing]

This is lit!

I’m here.


Let’s get a drink.


[both laugh]

Oh my God!

Wow! It’s so beautiful!

Girl, let’s take a quick selfie with it.


[Ba-da] Isn’t that the class president?

Guess she invited scholarship kids too.

That’s why the venue changed from her vacation home.

[Ba-da] Really?

Wonder where she is? The host is late to her own party.

She’s allowed to show up late. She’s the guest of honor.

Girl, this is a party for Jae-i. She’s not the guest of honor.

My gosh, Ba-da. Are you totally oblivious?

What do you mean?

It’s called a farewell party.

But it’s more like a coronation.

“Farewell, Jung Jae-i. The crown now belongs to Queen He-ra.”

You know how it goes. Otherwise, why wouldn’t she have thrown it sooner?

Oh, you’re right! Jae-i flies out today.

Think she left yet?

[“Dippin’ Easy” playing]

Where’s Ri-an?

He’s running a little late.

You seem kinda different.

Different how?

You look really, uh, normal, kinda.

No more flash. I want normal.

And I’m still pretty, even normal.

Mm. For sure. You’re pretty.

By the way, I was thinking about your advice from before.


That life’s too short.

That we have to go for… for what we want the most.

I figured I should be more like you.

And I guess I should be a bit more honest.

Just do whatever you want.

I’m gonna make Ri-an give me an answer tonight.

Because if I have him, there won’t be any issues.


[“Dippin’ Easy” continues]

Hello, He-ra.

Thank you for the invite.

For inviting us all.

Maybe it’s the outfit,

but you seem like you’re a different person tonight.

Lay low tonight.

We plan to have a good night.

Like you, Woo-jin.

[“Dippin’ Easy” continues]

What is it?

What’s different?

[“Hit ‘Em Real Hard” playing]

Didn’t I tell you you were being too obvious,

class president?

I found this while visiting In-han. It’s yours, isn’t it?

I remember I saw it attached to your bag.

But I wonder. How’d it wind up at his gravesite?

Why would you be visiting my brother?

Were you friends with In-han?

I was curious about that, so I asked Tae-ho,

and he said something kinda weird.

And the new kid. Kang Ha is your friend.

Speaking of Kang Ha, don’t you think he looks a lot like the kid who died?

[“Hit ‘Em Real Hard” continues]

[Ha] So I sent you that message, just in case.

Your reaction was confirmation.

Jae-i said she was being blackmailed by an anonymous account.

Is that you as well?

What do you want from me?

To know why I sent that to you?

Or to know why I was blackmailing her?


I just wanna know what else you have.

That’s all I want from you.

[“Hit ‘Em Real Hard” continues]

We’re all out.

[both] What?

[music continues muffled]

Where is he?

[phone buzzes]

Look at this. My gosh.


[electronic dance music playing]

[girl 1] Let’s go! Why is a car coming in here?

[indistinct chattering]

[opening theme music playing]

[officer] Park Seon-jun?

You are under arrest for violation of the Narcotics Control Act.

[Ri-an] Let’s go.

Don’t wanna be late, do you? It’s your party.

[girl 2] What is he doing?

[girl 3] Wait, is that Jae-i?

[crowd murmuring]

[He-ra] Ri-an.

This was your doing.

You stopped her from flying out.

Yoon He-ra, is this a good enough answer for you?

This is official.

Jae-i and I,

we’re starting over.

We’re gonna tell our parents too.

[crowd murmuring]


[Ri-an] So from now on,

no one’s gonna mess with Jae-i ever again.

No one.

Especially you.

Oh my.

Poor He-ra.

[music fades]

You said I could have them all?

I want those videos.

[electronic pop music playing]

Send them over. All of it.

{\an8}[electronic pop music continues]

[music fades]

[rhythmic pop music playing]

Which is cuter?

They’re both nice.

But which is better?

We know you’re gonna buy both.

[scoffs] Yeah, I know. Move.

If she was gonna buy them both all along, why bother asking me?

[music fades]
