Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) meets a long-winded client here in episode 2 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019), which results in him being late for Oh Yoon-seo’s (Yoo In-na) welcome party. In episode 3, he returns here to meet an opposing trial lawyer — who’s also his senior — for a meal. This time, he brings Yoon-seo along, who’s decked up in an elaborate disguise as his senior is a big fan of hers. Yoon-seo runs into the senior lawyer as she comes out of the restroom, and he tries to cajole her into revealing her identity to him, but is stopped in time by Jung-rok.
