Detective Lee Kang-to who was distributed to the bridal mask case and to guard the circus by his friend Shunji (Park Ki-woong) who was now his superior, didn’t know what to do with his feelings or his first love, Mok-dan.
Mok-dan promised to meet her independentista father Dam Sa-ri (Jeon Noh-min) the circus tent and when she heard that Lee was standing guard there, she worried that he would recognize her father. When her father didn’t answer the phone, she set out to at least warn his fellow independentista’s who were sleeping nearby.
However, she ran into Lee Kang-to on the way and told him she was going to do the laundry when he asked where she was going.
Lee Kang-to grabbed her basket and pulled her wrist. She asked him to let her go but he said, “You are going to them! Didn’t you hear they are being watched all day?” and followed her from behind and she still set off on her way.
The owner of the motel they were staying at was in fear when she saw Lee Kang-to follow in after Mok-dan and said, “I thought she was innocent because they say she was released. Are they asking them to leave the rooms? Don’t do that, they’re your countrymen”. She also looked at him with curious eyes as he wasn’t the way he was before.
As Mok-dan took out the ‘knife he gave her’ from her pocket, Kang-to remembered the things that happened with her and got teary. He became grumpy at her and told her to hurry up then took off his shoes and socks and stepped on the laundry himself saying, “You’re just a kitchen maid. When are you going to finish this?”
Kang-to can’t hide his feelings for Mok-dan but also can’t tell her who he really is.
