Episode 5: 1012
Yeon Woo continues to pester Woo Jae by following him around and serving him so he can focus better on his work. Woo Jae is unable to go forward with his writing one time because his favorite wine has run out, so he orders Yeon Woo to find the same one in an hour. Yeon Woo is lucky to acquire one from a restaurant owner after driving there, but Woo Jae brushes him off after returning since he exceeded the time limit. Though the reason might be he’s disappointed Yeon Woo did not recognize the meaning of the ‘1012’ (Yeon Woo’s birthday) on the bottle. We find out after Yeon Woo earnestly invites Woo Jae out near a lake that his mother died right after Woo Jae’s disappearance and that it was her death anniversary that day. This information opens a chance for closeness between the two with Woo Jae apologizing for being unable to go to his mom’s funeral and suggesting they drink his favorite wine together that night.
Episode 6: First Meeting
The two have an excellent time reminiscing about their past over wine before they get into another fight, which leads to Yeon Woo blurting out in frustration that he has been putting up with Woo Jae’s mistreatment while Woo Jae rebuts that Yeon Woo only cares about himself. In another flashback, it is shown that Yeon Woo went back to look for the hoodie Woo Jae gifted him but it’s obviously not there (Woo Jae took it upon seeing Yeon Woo forgot it) and instead of telling the truth, he tells Woo Jae that it is in the laundry, which in turn hurts Woo Jae because he knows the truth. After their argument, Woo Jae seemingly disappears again, therefore Yeon Woo goes back to his place to look for him. He’s shocked that Woo Jae’s door lock code is his birthday and the laptop code is the date of their first meeting.
