Tale as old as time, the tale of Romeo and his Juliet. This episode took inspiration from William Shakespeare but with a little twist.
Chief Gwi and wol-joo got addicted to a web novel series called Juliet’s Temptations. Its a different take on Shakespeare’s romeo and Juliet. chief Yeom come to visit and tells them that the evil spirit still hasn’t been caught and is still lurking around the area and that he just wants to see that they are safe. They found out that Yeo-rin and kang-bae kissed and teased him about it. Kang-bae kept trying to get closer to Yeo-rin but she kept pushing him away. During their team meeting, Yeo-rin convinced herself that she has no feelings for Kang-bae and lets him know about it. This surprised him and wondered why she kissed him.
Kang-bae’s landlady tried to rent out an apartment in the building but no one wants it. They all said it gave them a chill. She invited Kang-bae to come and have a look, even promising to rent it to him for half the price of his rooftop room. When he got inside, he heard a woman saying ‘get out’. On his way back to his rooftop, he noticed two letters on the ground addressed to ice witch and he put them in the post box.
Wol-joo and Chief Gwi read the last episode of Juliet’s Temptation and was surprised that they won’t be able to find out the ending of the novel due to the writer passing away. Kang-bae came into the bar looking sad after been rejected and asked for a soju. As the trio was talking, a man in the bar chimed in and Kang-bae replied. This surprised Wol-joo and Chief Gwi who told Kang-bae that the man was a spirit on his way to the afterlife. This surprised and scared him.They concluded that it’s the travelling between the living realm and the afterlife that caused it. They asked him if anything new had happened to him lately. He mentioned that he heard a voice and told them about the ice witch letter.
Wol-joo went out of her way to get pure salt for Kang-bae to throw at ghosts if he sees them and Chief Gwi gave him a sunglasses to him him avoid them. The trio went to the writer’s house to find out what’s going on. When they got there, they met the owner of the house with a fake shaman. After kicking out the shaman, they talked to ice witch. Real name Shin Bo-ra.
She told them that she started writing X rated novel online because it’s the way she was able to leave. She couldn’t leave the house much because of her heart disease. Writing made her happy. One day the order she made online arrived and she stuck up a friendship with the delivery man named Kim Do-yeong and soon enough, they started dating. She was embarrassed, so she never told him the type of novel she writes. One day she was talking to her friend about the new chapter of her book. She told her friend that Juliet is going to reject romeo because he became a delivery man. Kim Do-yeong heard this and misunderstood, left and never came back. He even changed his phone number and delivery route. After this, Shin Bo-ra suffered a heart attack and died. All she asked the trio was that they find Do-yeong and show him the novel including the last chapter so the misunderstanding will be resolved.
The trio found Do-yeong and gave him some Ssanggapju. They went into his dream and acted out the novel for him to see. He then realized he was mistaken. When he woke up, they took him to Bo-ra’s apartment and the two settled their misunderstandings and said their tearful goodbyes. This reminded Wol-joo of her time with the crown prince. They used to sneak around to see each other. On one of their dates, the crown prince made a circle around the moon and told Wol-joo that she’s just like the moon. She shines so bright and fits in his hand. The couple was interrupted by Kim Won-Hyung, who told the crown prince it’s time to go home.
Even thought the queen warned Wol-joo never to see the crown prince again, the crown prince sneaked out at night to see Wol-joo at home and promised to protect her and she should trust him. Fast forward to the night Wol-joo’s mother was killed. She saw Kim Won-Hyung that night and he have blood on him but he claimed that he saw the assassin that killed her mother and they fought but he got away. She begged him to take her to the crown prince but he refused. He told her the crown prince will marry a woman chosen by the queen and that the crown prince wanted to come and tell her but he couldn’t.
Present day, instead of celebrating like they used to, Wol-joo was drinking soju alone and looking sad. When Chief Gwi asked her what’s wrong? She said people can live as long as on person listens to them. It would have been nice if Bo-ra had someone to listen to her when she was alive. She said when she was alive, only two people listened to her. One died and the other one betrayed her. Both Chief gwi and Kang-bae tells her they will both listen to her if she needs to talk. And with that, she sent them home saying she wants to drink alone. As the two left the bar, they were followed by Kim Won-Hyung, who looked angry and ready to attack but was stopped by department head Yeom. When Kim Won-Hyung saw his face, he called him father.
Both Chief Gwi and Kang-bae went their separate ways and the both put their hands around the moon just like the crown prince did. Wol-joo made a wish upon the moon ‘please st me free from this misery before i become attached again.
That’s where the episode ended. I know this episode is trying to confuse the viewers as to who the crown prince reincarnated as. I have two theories.
1). Chief Gwi is the prince reincarnated
2). Chief Yeom is Wol-joo’s mother and Kang-bae is the prince reincarnated.
Who do you think is whom? As usual, this episode gave us a dose of reality. We all need someone who listens to us.
