Heo Jun Jae's innocence came out and smile more often. He did not reveal yet to Sim Chung that he was able to hear her inner voice. He knew all of Sim Chung's worries about him and tried to perhaps, sweetly trying to calm her down by giving her a sweet gentle kiss. It seems like they have confirmed each other's feelings.
