Episode 7: Choose
When Myung Ha’s grandmother wakes up in the hospital, she reminds him to take care of himself as well and tells him that he cannot care for others if he can’t do it for himself. On Myung Ha’s phone, he receives another message from the unknown number telling him to think things through. On their way out the following day, Yeo Woon tells him that the stalker has been found and he will no longer be able to hurt Myung Ha. Meanwhile, the game reminds Myung Ha to choose, or else all of his data on the server will be deleted. That evening, Myung Ha goes to the rooftop and cries as he answers that he chose both his grandmother and Yeo Woon to save. Knowing that his senior can actually hear him from somewhere else, he answers both. As the time ticks down, he remembers all the memories he has shared with Yeo Woon from the time that they met. The game tells Myung Ha that another system error has occurred, and he runs down the stairs to hide himself. He then hears footsteps coming towards him and suddenly remembers a conversation between him and his senior, where the latter asks him if he prefers to break up immediately or delay the breakup in order to spend more time together. Myung Ha chooses to break up immediately, as he believes that prolonging it will only be more painful. He is left with fourteen days to settle things with Yeo Woon.
One day, as Yeo Woon and Myung Ha spend some time on the school rooftop, Yeo Woon excitedly tells him all the things he wants to do with him and his grandmother. As Yeo Woon leaves for training, Myung Ha can only whisper, I love you, in the air. Understanding that he has only a few days left with his newfound friends, Myung Ha gathers everyone at Yeo Woon’s place for a Korean barbeque and quality time together. They also take a photo using Kyung Hun’s digital camera as a memory of that day. Throughout the day, Myung Ha reminds Yeo Woon of the importance of keeping the house clean and other things to take care of himself. Later that night, Yeo Woon asks Myung Ha if they can live together once they graduate, but the latter remains silent. He also asks Myung Ha to promise to stay by his side, but he continues not to answer, instead, Myung Ha tells Yeo Woon that he now has true friends who will be able to stay with him. Yeo Woon tells Myung Ha that it’s okay for him if the latter doesn’t feel the same towards him, but he wishes he would rely on him as well. Yeo Woon confesses his love and holds Myung Ha’s hand, but Myung Ha can only smile at him.
The next day, Yeo Woon reaches one hundred thousand followers on Instagram, and the game rewards Myung Ha with a pen for completing the mission. Just as Sang Won arrives, Myung Ha starts to feel dizzy and collapses on the ground. On the other hand, Yeo Woon meets with the owner of Swoony, the brand that is scouting him to be their model, and the ones that Myung Ha met to help Yeo Woon gain followers on Instagram. The brand helped find the stalker to ensure that Yeo Woon is protected, as is his image; hence, the latter agrees that he will model for them and participate in the activities sponsored by them. To his surprise, the owner asks him to think about things thoroughly and says that she is also considering Myung Ha’s request to let Yeo Woon do what he wants and to watch him until he grows up. That evening, Yeo Woon was unable to reach Myung Ha until the following day. He also learns that Sang Won took care of Myung Ha when he fell ill. When he reaches home after a whole day of trying to find Myung Ha, Yeo Woon finds him at his home and questions why he could rely on Sang Won but not on him. Yeo Woon ends up expressing all of his worries and frustration at how Myung Ha seems to keep everything on his own and throws away the gift that Myung Ha got him. Myung Ha realizes that the distance he has been trying to establish has been hurting Yeo Woon and questions himself about how he can really make him happy. Yeo Woon begins to avoid Myung Ha, despite his attempts to reconcile. He waits for him to come home and tells him that he truly likes him, even if Yeo Woon doesn’t think he does, but he also tells them they need to break up. Yeo Woon refuses to accept it and begs Myung Ha to stay. He promises to do better, and he will do anything that Myung Ha asks him to, but the latter remains firm on his decision. As Yeo Woon tells him again that he loves him, the game tells Myung Ha that a system error has occurred.
With just three days remaining, Myung Ha opens the pen that he got as a reward. The game tells him that he can use the author’s pen on the person he chooses. However, any change he makes will result in a deduction from Yeo Woon’s fondness for him. The game tells him that the server has been heavily damaged. The game begins to delete Myung Ha from the memories of everyone. To Myung Ha’s shock, his surroundings start to distort, and everything starts to deteriorate in front of him. Meanwhile, Yeo Woon, whose memories are the last to be deleted, tries to find Myung Ha as the latter falls into an endless pit.
