Mi Jung asks for Sang Tae’s advice regarding telling the truth to her kids. She plans to tell her oldest kids first then asks how old his kids were when their mom passed away. He takes her to the rooftop where he ‘steals’ two drinks from the fridge there. As they look down to the traffic below, he reveals his kids were 6 and 4yo. They knew mom was sick, she had stomach cancer. They were playing during the funeral and he finally told his son one more later. He totally understands Mi Jung’s reason because he almost wanted to fool his kids too – he didn’t have the confidence to see his kids get sad.
But he gathered his confidence and told Lee Soo after reading him bedtime story. He really missed his mom. He explained mom was really sick but she’s no longer in pain now because she’s gone to Heaven. He explains everyone will go to Heaven but Mom went there earlier than them. Unfortunately once people enter the Heaven, they won’t return.

Lee Soo cried on his embrace but the truth had to be told. He realized the kids could accept and handle it better than he expected. Mi Jung cries hearing his story, he wipes her tears
He tried to be strong and couldn’t cry but he hopes Mi Jung won’t follow his example. It’d be good if she can lean on the person who assures her. She vows to be that kind of person to Sang Tae too.
Trying to look as pitiful to gain sympathy, Jin Joo squats down in cold in front of front gate and cries out she’s kicked out to her dad! She exaggerates everything of course, totally ignoring the fact she made everyone uncomfortable. She also didn’t realize Mom brought expensive prawns to thanks the in-laws and to take Jin Joo back. Mom is shocked so do the in-laws while Ho Tae is finally enjoying his freedom!
Bonding over alcohol, Jin Joo’s mom is aware her daughter is the problem not the university nor Ho Tae. She even praises Yeon Tae who graduated on time and has her future sorted out already.

But Ok Soon points out at least all her 3 kids are healthy, she’d lost her kid 😢 conversation moves on to Sang Tae who seems like dying after losing his wife, he’s like a living corpse and she wants to see him smiling brightly even only once. Not faking his smile but the real joy and happiness.
Well Mom, he is currently smiling in real joy! After missing out on sold out movie tickets, he’s playing in the arcade with Mi Jung just as his mom hopes a woman falls down from Heaven giving her son real happiness again.
