The opening

Episode 4 opens with Jae-won and Seon-a waking up together again after establishing that they have feelings for each other. There’s calm between them. Suddenly, it rains heavily on the caravan and they both run out into it, joy etched on their faces. Jae-won narrates how he was happy. With the rain pouring down, they have the full day to spend together in close quarters. This is a demonstration of young foolish love where the bliss of the holiday mood narrows expectations.

A proposal

Seon-a asks Jae-won if he’s leaving in a month and wonders if he can take another month’s leave. Jae-won asks if he stays for another month, will she marry him, which shocks her. He seems to be dead serious about it. Seon-a thinks a wedding would be fun. The pair are clearly in love and record a wedding on top of the caravan roof. Jae-won gives Seon-a a ring and kisses her hand.

Where did the ring go?

In the present day, Jae-won wonders if Seon-a threw the ring away. While Seon-a is being interviewed, she confirms that she did. It wasn’t a legal wedding anyway, and the other reality participants note that they only lived together for two months, which is nothing. Eventually, Jae-won gets frustrated in an interview and claims Seon-a loved him and had passion. There’s plenty of implied regrets when the pair talk about their experiences on that holiday.

A promise to meet

Back to the flashback; Seon-a is proud that they live together near the beach. They are enjoying their relationship with freedom. Suddenly, Jae-won has to go back to Seoul for a work emergency. They agree to meet each other at a certain time and date in Seoul and make sure they both have each other’s numbers. In the present day, Jae-won explains how that was the last time they saw each other — they didn’t meet in Seoul as promised.

Work problems

Jae-won has work problems; he’s expected to have started construction on an important design by now. He’s asked if he’s trying to ruin his father’s company. Jae-won explains how he truly respected the President in the previous company. He and his colleague Kyeong-jun are under intense pressure to deliver.

Making ends meet

As for Seon-a, she’s set up her own business that’s been operating for 9 months. She barely makes ends meet. She begs a potential client for work. As for Jae-won, he checks out a construction site’s progress and boosts morale, and helps them dig.

The ending

While making her way home, Seon-a hears a song on the radio that reminds her of Jae-won. It’s the song she sang loudly when she picked up Jae-won near the beach. Her eyes well up a little. Jae-won notes that he hopes to run into her in Seoul, while Seon-a hopes to forget him. But, as the episode ends, Seon-a and Jae-won line their cars up next to each other. Seon-a sees him and hides before driving off.

Seon-a is interviewed and explains how Jae-won always forgets one moment. A flashback shows him telling her he likes everything about her. Seon-a asks what if she was a different person, i.e. not having a tattoo. He responds with “well, that’s not Seon-a”. In the present day, she reminds viewers that in Yangyang, that wasn’t the real her. That’s when she realized she had to break up with him.
