In the beginning of the episode, while Dr. Kang is stitching up his wound, Captain Yoo admits to her that he still missed her.

In the beginning of the episode, while Dr. Kang is stitching up his wound, Captain Yoo admits to her that he still missed her.

Yoo Si Jin tried everything (after leaving Urk for his vacation, because just shortly before he left, he kissed her and got rejected for the nth time): working out and drinking. Yet no matter what he did, he still couldn't stop thinking about Kang Mo Yeon. 

*TINY SQUEAL* He's falling for her hard.

After visiting the miliary headquarters situated in the town, Kang Mo Yeon admits to being comforted by the presence of Yoo Si Jin.

After visiting the miliary headquarters situated in the town, Kang Mo Yeon admits to being comforted by the presence of Yoo Si Jin.

After the literal life-and-death choice that Dr. Kang had to make earlier that day and after everything she has been through while trying to save the lives of the earthquake victims, Yoo Si Jin attempts to comfort her by showing the beautiful night sky. However, she says that she has already been comforted by him alone. She thanks him for coming back to Urk and helping with the rescue mission. She says she if it weren't for him, she would have already as far away from Urk as possible.

And the great Yoo Si Jin makes yet another joke, saying 

"If you want to run away, let's do it together. Running away is more fun with a man and a woman."

While trying to rescue a worker, Yoo Si Jin gets trapped inside the collapsed structure.

While trying to rescue a worker, Yoo Si Jin gets trapped inside the collapsed structure.

In the midst of a rescue operation, the unstable structure once again begins shaking, trapping Yoo Si Jin and the injured worker inside, with no way out. All because the crazy and stupid manager attempted to excavate the collapsed site with an excavator in order to find his precious diamonds.

While Captain Yoo is inside, he starts to worry about Kang Mo Yeon and how scared she must be feeling at that moment. Yet, he still manages to make a joke out of the situation, 

While [she is] thinking, "If it were to turn out like this, I should have said yes when he confessed to me."

After being rescued by Sergeant Seo, Yoo Si Jin asks for a stretcher.. for himself.

After escaping the disintegrated building where he was trapped, Yoo Si Jin immediately asks for a stretcher for his injured self. (haha) 

Meanwhile, Kang Mo Yeon remains serious, after having gone almost crazy worrying about Yoo Si Jin.

After everything has calmed down, the medical team receives the news that a chopper will be coming to pick them up.

However, Ha Ja Ae and Choi Min Ji both decide to give their seats to patients who need immediate medical care in Korea. Dr. Song Sang Hyun, however, seems to want to leave, but he feels guilty (because Ja Ae decides to stay) and chooses to stay in Urk with his colleagues instead.

Dr. Lee Chi Hoo is traumatized by the way he left the worker to (supposedly but didn't) die, and falls apart when he sees him.

The person who actually informed the Yoo Si Jin's company of the trapped survivor was Lee Chi Hoon. This is because he let go of the worker's hand in an attempt to save himself from the falling concrete of the unstable structure. He remains guilty and traumatized by the event.

The next day, everybody gathers around and pays respect to the lives lost during the earthquake.

Captain Yoo Si Jin also congratulates everyone for all the hard work they put into the rescue mission.

Back in the camp, Dr. Daniel successfully fixes the sound system. Kang Mo Yeon then starts playing a song from her phone.

While the music is playing..

Dr. Song decides to somewhat act on his feelings (right?) towards Ha Ja Ae by giving her something to drink.

They are just so adorable.

Sergeant Seo Dae Young and Yoon Myeong Joo are left alone in a room.

Myeong Joo attempts to get Seo Dae Young to finally make a move after "breaking up", but fails. Sergeant Seo leaves. Awwwww. 

Suddenly, the next song plays. Only that it's not a song, but a voice recording of Kang Mo Yeon.

Suddenly, the next song plays. Only that it's not a song, but a voice recording of Kang Mo Yeon.

The voice recording of Kang Mo Yeon (which she recorded when she was about to fall off the cliff) plays for the whole camp to hear, that includes Yoo Si Jin. Her voice plays, as she cries and says:

If I knew this death would happen in a foreign land, then I didn't have to go through all this trouble. Are you coming to me now Mr. Yoo Si Jin? 

Then, everyone hears what seems to be a confession as her voice recording continues:

However, if I knew I would die like this, then I should have told you my true feelings for you. Then, I could say to myself that I got a kiss from a handsome man.

Kang Mo Yeon runs as fast as she can to stop the recording. Meanwhile, Yoo Si Jin just smiles as he hears all of this. His feelings weren't unreciprocated after all. 

*SQUEALS*


I can't wait for the next episode.
