The Rescue Mission

After the car accident, Hyun Woo was rushed to the hospital. He received primary medical care and was under observation when he contacted Grace.

In the meantime, Hae In learned about Eun Sung's evil scheming. She played along with him while figuring out a way to escape. The female lead agreed to marry her school classmate and settle in the US with him. Hae In apologized to Eun Sung for doubting him. She promised to stay loyal to him until death. When the two characters tried to clear the misunderstanding, Seul Hee arrived. She confronted her son. When the mother-son duo were arguing, the female lead nearly got caught.

Hyun Woo reached on time to help his lover. He took her from the place and led her to the main gate. Unfortunately, Eun Sung saw them. He chased them and tried to kill the female lead.

Reviews and Reactions

Thanks to Kim Soo Hyun and Kim Ji Won for taking on this project, for working together, for giving us a beautiful dream pairing with insane chemistry, and for making everything possible in this drama. BaekHong will remain in our hearts for a long time.

#QueenOfTears showed us marriage isn't always the happily ever after, you can marry the love of your life and still be unhappy, that love alone is not enough to hold a marriage together, without understanding and communication it will fall apart.

One of the most iconic and beautiful pairings in K-dramas, the pairing we never knew we needed. Thank you for saying yes and making BaekHong happen. Soo Hyun and Ji Won will always be my one and only Hyun Woo and Hae In.

Kim Jiwon served us crazy acting until the last episode. We never saw Hae In cry & worry this much even when she was sick but seeing Hyun Woo in this state just brought out all the feelings and emotions from Hae In.

Thanks for this one-of-a-kind love story. I'm gonna miss you BaekHong.
