Anna looked around Young Gul’s Dongdaemun factory and realized that he was selling knock-off brand name clothing. “What is this, what are you guys doing?” an angry Anna asked Young Gul. “Can you not think straight, now that Michael has given you some attention?”

I’ll cancel the contract breaching fee, so take Lee Ga Young back,” she continued. “I’ll be sure to let you walk away with more money, so text me your bank account information.”

Young Gul then pulled her in for an embrace and said with a sly smile, “Be honest. You’re here because you missed me, right?”

Crazy fool,” Anna responded, causing Young Gul to suddenly pull her in and kiss her. Displeased, Anna slapped him across the face and remarked, “I was the crazy fool to think that trash like yourself would be able to feel humane heartache and pain.”
