Jo Hee Ra (Song Ji Hyo) saw the chaos happening inside his restaurant, and a few minutes later Yoon Ki surrendered and confessed that he just needed money and food for to survive.

After hearing his feelings, Jo Hee Ra offered to grant his wish, but he has to pay the price in return.

Meanwhile, Jung Jin and Lee Gil Yong (Chae Jong Hyeop) alternately chatted with Yoon Ki about Jo Hee Ra’s terms and conditions regarding granting a wish. The foreigner cannot believe it at first, but ended up asking for a decent and stable job to earn a living.

That same night, Yoon Ki was embroiled in an incident where both of her fingers were cut off after saving a woman from her manipulative boyfriend.

Due to his heroic act, he made headlines and has been dubbed the Hero of the Nation. Yoon Ki also received awards for his good deeds, and his wish for a stable job was finally granted.

Just like what Jo Hee Ra had asked her before in exchange for her wish, she wanted both of her fingers. Having Yoon Ki’s fingers removed became the price of his wish.

Lee Gil Yong’s wish is to be with Jung Jin

When Lee Gil Yong and Jung Jin saw what happened to Yoon Ki, they were both happy and worried for him. They still couldn’t believe that something truly magical could happen just by asking Jo Hee Ra.

Meanwhile, Jung Jin frankly asked Lee Gil Yong what kind of wish he requested from Jo Hee Ra, and has she ever granted it for him.

The student didn’t explain what he asked Jo Hee Ra, but just smiled at Jung Jin, signaling that his wish was finally granted.

A flashback appeared showing the conversation between Hee Ra and Gil Yong. It was later revealed that his wish was not to take revenge on his classmates, but to be closer to Jung Jin.

Jo Hee Ra was surprised by his wish, and to make his wish come true, he had to work part-time at The Witch’s restaurant. It also led him to be with Jung Jin, as they were the only employees at Jo Hee Ra’s restaurant.
