My Liberation Notes

Yeom Ki-jung continued to love Tae-hun (Lee Ki-woo) but struggled due to opposition from Tae-hun’s family. Ki-jung, who was disappointed when Tae-hun said it was lucky knowing she did not get pregnant, resolved her misunderstanding with Ki-hun after knowing the meaning behind his words, which meant if she was pregnant, he was afraid that the baby would suffer a hard life like him. In addition, Tae-hun’s expression of love toward Ki-jung, which is buying her favorite egg bread and shyly giving her a rose, made Ki-jung realize his rough love and why she had no choice but to love him more while looking at the head of a rose that broke off from its stem in a soy sauce dish. Tae-hun, who was going back home on a bus, also hurriedly fixed his coat right after receiving Ki-jung’s message reminding him that the buttons on his coat had been done up wrong and smiled happily.

Yeom Chang-hee visited Ji Hyun-ah’s ex-boyfriend in the hospital before the appointed time to have his sweet potato ovens verified for delivery but intuitively felt that the ex-boyfriend had not much time to live. Chang-hee gave up on the important appointment and stood by him. Chang-hee said, “I think I was destined for things like this. I was also there when my grandpa, grandma and my mother passed away”, adding, “Whenever I send them away, I was relieved that I was there. My legs led me here again, like a psychic. I know since I’ve sent three people away. When you go, you’ll feel better. Their faces told me. So don’t be afraid and leave peacefully.”
