I saw the father and the nun today at the church.

Well, I've done this often.

I love kids here.

If I have a baby I should raise him in a place like this.

Because here we have wild flowers and trees to see.

Also it's close to Seoul.

Uh? Towing car?

They said it might take a while to get here.

Hum~ I love hearing your voice now.

Since I can hear your voice and it's snowing now,

the ambience in my car is livened up.

Just a second.

Does your tire have an air leak?

Yes. I called the towing car.

It will take a long time to get here since it's snowing.

Let me check your tire.

He said he would check the tire.


I think you should just wait for the towing car.

Uh? No, it's not hard to

change the tire.

Um? It's strange.

You told him you called the towing car but the guy wants to check your tire.

Wait, wait.

What's the status?


Hello? Jooyeon, I think I should head out now.

Don't open the car door and just wait for

the towing car.



My love~

so sweat~

I just~

I, I just don't like him checking the tire even though you told him you called the towing car.

Well, there are people around here.

Ha...I'm sorry. I couldn't be with you for your birthday.

Ok. I'll be there soon.


Your car's completely sunk.

Thank you for your help but I think I should just wait for the towing car.

Thank you so much

I Saw The Devil.

Mister. Mister. Mister

It's going to be easy since your skin is so soft.

Can you please not kill me?



have a baby in my belly.

Spare my life, please.

Dongsoo! Dongsoo!


Come over here! Hurry Up!

Boss! Why did you come out here?

We can let you know the situation later if you stay at home.

What happened? What happened to my daughter?

Don't look. Not now.

We don't know yet.

Detective Joh.


Is this?

Let me see.

It looks like hair. Flip it over.

Forensic team!

here, here! come here hurry!

We found it. we found it over here.

God helped us.

Otherwise we wouldn't be able to find her.

It's funny how the father couldn't protect his own daughter

even though he has been a detective in charge of violent crime for more than 30 years.

Please stop smoking sir.

I'm sorry.

I'm really sorry.

To you and to my Jooyeon.

I am terribly sorry.

I'm sorry Jooyeon.

I couldn't keep the promise.

I was late and couldn't keep the promise.

But Jooyeon,

I'll promise this.

I'll give him the pain that's 1000 times,

no, 10000 times more painful.


So how long do you want?

Since there's nothing urgent to do, you can rest for a few months.

You can rest longer.

No, I'll come back to work after 2 weeks.

Well, I really appreciate if you can do that.

But are you going to be OK?


Then I'll be expecting you after 2 weeks.

In the meantime, please rest fully.

I can't believe this happened to us.

They just got engaged less than a month ago.

What a crazy world.

You're here.

Here's the GPS,

and the capsule.

There are a GPS and a voice mic inside here.

Isn't it marvelous?

Good job.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Aren't you going in?


Isn't there anything to say?


Well, I trust you

but if there's going to be any problem,

you and I can get into a serious trouble since I siphoned them off from other division.

Don't worry.

I'll make sure there's no problem.

The police suspects those four.

They were the suspects when there were similar cases before.

Soohyun, you're here.


Do you want to have supper?

No, I have to leave now.

I went grocery shopping for dad.

I'll get going now.
