Lee Hyun was shocked when he saw Ma Ru in front of his door. He thought he would go to Min Woo’s house, but the latter says he’s giving him the honor of taking care of him that night. Ma Ru admits that he went to Min Woo’s house and turned back because he was afraid he wouldn’t open the door, but he says that they both know that Min Woo is always like that. While lying in bed, Lee Hyun can’t help but ask him about what he heard earlier. The latter says that the police came to their school that day because someone pushed his friend off the roof. He pretends not to know when he asks him if he knows the guy. Ma Ru asks him if he wants him to do some digging about what happened, but he refuses.
Ma Ru asks him if he’s noticed anything different about Min Woo, but he tells him he’s always been the same. The latter says he seems different to him because he became cold. Lee Hyun told him that if he feels that way, then so be it, and it was not like they know what was going on inside his head. The latter says that Min Woo is harder to read than him, and he says it’s because he has more interest in Min Woo than him. He asked him if it’s harder to read when you’re interested, and he says the more interest you have, the harder it is to judge only what you see. The next day, they went to school together, and when Lee Hyun asked him to get coffee, he refused, and he told him that he was out on a mission.
Ma Ru went to the cafe where Min Woo has a part-time job. He started his so-called mission by annoying Min Woo’s manager. He plugged in all his gadgets and used too much electricity from the cafe. The manager noticed it and told him that he uses so much electricity. When the manager told him he couldn’t do that, he shouted out loud that everyone in the cafe couldn’t use electricity, which is why some of the customers went away. He ordered his favorite drink, and the staff was stunned because he couldn’t understand what flavor he was ordering. Ma Ru gave him a sarcastic smile, meaning mission accomplished. At school, Lee Hyun treated Sung Min to coffee as a sign of gratitude for what he did last time. He also took a chance to ask him if he heard the rumors about Kim An, and Sung Min said that even if he heard about them, a rumor is just a rumor.
Joo Hyuk bought a cup of coffee for Sung Min, but when he saw the two talking, he just drank the coffee and walked away. Lee Hyun is still curious about what happened two years ago, so he continued searching for information about it on the internet. But little did he know that Kim An was watching him from afar. In their ‘Marriage and Family’ class, they are asked to present their assignment. Lee Hyun told their professor that it seems that he did his assignment wrong, but the latter says it was fine. As he reads his observation about him, he says he brought him to the library, and it’s so quiet that he can’t ask him questions. The face that he had missed for a long time was right there in front of him. And as he looked at him, he remembered the old days, thought of the past, and asked himself if he had changed. But still, he believes that it’s time that changed, not the person. And in Kim An’s time, he lost two years and a few months, and he is wearing the face of lost time.
Lee Hyun’s words were emotional, while Kim An’s observation was simple. He just described his appearance, and he told them that he draws. Joo Hyuk happily walks down the hall, holding a gift. Meanwhile, Sung Min is chatting with a co-worker when the latter knocks on their door. Joo Hyuk gave him the gift and went away. His colleague opens the gift, and they are surprised when they see a set of different-colored underwear. Sung Min got embarrassed after reading what he wrote on the card. In their class, their professor gave them another assignment. Lee Hyun and Kim An presented their special assignments and gave their speeches to each other. Lee Hyun says that he wants him to stop being mean to him and that he should answer his calls. Kim An says it was his fault, and he says sorry.
After class, Ma Ru saw him and Kim An in the hall. He told him that he heard that Kim An is partnered up with a freshman, and he feels bad for that guy. Lee Hyun looked at him and whispered that he was the guy. The latter became confused as he pulled him away. Someone posted a note on Kim An’s locker saying, ‘Did you miss me? ‘ He was shocked at first, but he just threw it away. That night, the two walk home together, and they talk about their presentation earlier. Kim An noticed that he seemed to focus on his electives, and he said that he was still a freshman and he wanted to gain more knowledge, but the latter told him that time flies faster than he thinks. He also said that he was forced to make hobbies, and he asked him to go make a new one.
They played basketball, and Lee Hyun felt happy seeing Kim An smile after shooting the ball. They lay down on the court after playing. Kim An looks at him with a gleam in his eyes while he captures the night sky. He told him that he forgot to film him while playing, and the latter says he can do it next time. Lee Hyun says that he likes that there will be a next time. The latter told him that he doesn’t understand why he was doing everything, and he says it was because they had a past. When Kim An asks him if the past is important to him, he asks him back if the rumors about him are true. Kim An stood up and told him that he should just look into the more serious things that he had done. But he says that he wanted to know what happened in the past two years. He says that maybe he doesn’t like him anymore, but Lee Hyun doesn’t believe him. He walked away, and he told him to answer his calls.
Min Woo saw Ma Ru waiting outside his house. Ma Ru told him that he was having trouble quitting his job because of his parents. He showed him the video of his parents telling him that they would abandon him if he quit his job. Min Woo told him that his parents would soon understand him, and when he tried to caress her hair, Ma Ru moved and held his hand, asking him to move in with him. He promised to pay half of the rent, and the latter agreed. While walking home, Lee Hyun receives a text from Kim An saying he went home safely and he doesn’t need to call him. He simply said goodnight to him and told himself that it was fine the way it is.
The episode ends with a flashback to their past when Kim An is waiting for him outside his apartment. He told him that his parents are getting divorced, and he hates his dad for having an affair. He asks him about his parents, and the latter says that they died when he was young, which is why he was a bit jealous of him. He assures him that he doesn’t have to worry because he will help him along the way.
