Things get awkward in the evening, when Hee-joo gets drunk and starts belittling Seo-yeon, causing her to answer back just as scathingly.  In episode 4 (full episode 2), Kang Tae-woo (Kim Kang-woo) comes here to talk to the caretaker of the house, who refuses to speak to him. Tae-woo finds out that the woman driving out from the villa was not the caretaker’s daughter, as he had assumed.

In episodes 5-6, Ryu Eun-ho (Ahn Jae-hyeon) comes to clean Sa-ra’s house as one of his part-time jobs, while she is looking everywhere for him and finally finds him at her place in episode 6. In episode as well, Do-jae and Han Se-gye in changed form (cameo by Kim Min-suk) are seen outside this place ready to leave for a jogging.

This is also where the crime scene of prosecutor Eun Sol’s (Jung Yoo-mi) first case in episode 1 of Partners for Justice / Investigation Couple (검법남녀) (MBC, 2018) takes place and where she meets police officer Cha Soo-ho (Lee Yi-kyung) for the first time.
