As if I needed to remind you. They say that good things come in fours and Cyrano is no exception. The wine, the flowers, the mood — everything is perfect. We hear her narrate: But what could compare to this moment — the moment you confess your feelings? True love can only be achieved through sincerity. Then she gives her client Ji Jin-hee his cue. He launches into his confession, nervously stuttering his words of admiration towards his date. With one last burst of courage, he asks her for a chance to prove himself.
The camera briefly cuts to a mysterious man sitting at a different table before the woman Lee Chung-ah gives her answer. She thanks him for his bold confession, which now gives her the courage to face her own cowardice. Then she downs the rest of her glass, rises from her seat, and confesses her own feelings to the sommelier.
We pause to learn more about Min-young, a bright-eyed young woman who works at a bustling matchmaking company. She strains to keep a smile on her face until another voice cuts in, asking if there is such a thing as sincere feelings. That voice belongs to the man we saw earlier, who asks for a chance to confess his feelings to a fellow client whom he believes to be his perfect match. She makes a decision and grabs the necessary file before heading out.
Just then, a man bumps into her, causing her to drop her things, and she sneers at him when he leaves without a word. But Min-young insists that this is a perfect match, adding that it could be destiny. Min-young gives her client some last-minute words of encouragement before sending him out to the battlefield. He keeps a watchful eye out with the help of a camera and listens in on their conversation, thanks to the microphone hidden in the flowers.
Then he orders his team members to pack it up, and leaves an utterly shocked Min-young in his wake. Min-young and her client sit on the steps, completely baffled by the situation. Her client tells her not to beat herself too much about it, and places the blame on himself for going after a Grade A woman when he himself is a Grade F man. He does, however, thank Min-young for giving him the courage to own up to his feelings and helping him find closure. He sweetly adds that he admires the fervent passion she has in her line of work, and hopes that it will find a home.
Min-young gets an earful from her team leader about the unapproved pairing over the phone. She slumps against the back of the van.
When she rests her head against the window in defeat, the back door unexpectedly opens. Then her eyes grow wide when she sees an image of the woman her client was trying to woo that evening on a monitor. He furrows his eyebrows as she tries to explain herself. Ominous music plays as she surveys her unknown surroundings. She jumps when a machine suddenly comes to life, its gears whirring. Then a friendly voice asks brightly: Frightened, she backs away just as Moo-jin tries to warn her: The fake wall comes down Moo-jin continues: Her fall jogs her memory and she finally recognizes their faces.
Min-young is appalled to find a picture of herself on the board, and Byung-hoon asks her how it feels to act of her own accord, outside of company protocol. She points out that their interference ruined everything, and turns the question on him: She argues that his tactics are impolite, to which he tells her that those so-called romantic overtures are the ones that are impolite.
We see that he intentionally broke the wine bottle so that the smell would trigger her memory about their previous awkward encounter. Then it was his agency who fed him the lines of his confession of love. He summarizes that this is what it means to fully understand someone: If sincerity is to be valued, then one must be thorough. When Min-young scoffs, asking where he gets these ideas, he taps his temple as if to say, From this think bank.
He tells her that her words of encouragement will eventually hurt her client in the long run. Feeding him false hope is like poison in the world of dating. Min-young admits that her intentions were good, but what is it to anyone now? Then Byung-hoon flashes a business card — how about a job then?
She scoffs at the offer — she would never subject herself to such grunt work. In response, Byung-hoon reminds her of her dream: Byung-hoon says that her name suits her, and he draws close to ask about her surname: She quits on the spot. He breaks into a small smile when he sees Min-young loiter outside the agency entrance. He mistakes her as another potential customer and tells her to take the last courageous step towards Cyrano. The team listens as their interviewee, Joon-hyuk, recounts about how he fell in love with a local librarian the day he found her feeding a stray cat in the rain.
Min-young loses herself in her empathy with her descriptions about all of the overwhelming feelings that come with falling head over heels in love. Then he tosses the car keys to Min-young and asks if she can drive.
They keep an eye on their target Lee Yoon-ji , and avoid her gaze when she gets up and furiously marches through the aisles. Off she goes, then. Ha, I love her shocked Who, me? The situation goes as well as you might expect and the librarian is startled at the damning evidence before her. As Min-young insists upon her innocence, Byung-hoon lurks behind their target, gathering clues in the brief moment of distraction.
Instead, he counters that he noticed Min-young jot notes on their subject, and asks her to brief him on her observations. She happily reports that librarian Jae-in is an quick and efficient worker who loves her job. Her face falls when Byung-hoon tells her that her report falls far below his expectations. She asks him to enlighten her then, and Byung-hoon amuses her. In truth, Jae-in finds her job boring and could care less about the library patrons, let alone her admirer.
Thus, in a desire to break free of the monotonous routine, she enjoys crime-mystery novels and is highly skeptical. Min-young excitedly asks if Byung-hoon has a strategy in mind, and he gives a knowing smile.
Byung-hoon sends him a look and avoids giving a direct answer, spouting roundabout excuses instead. Byung-hoon hanging off of a rooftop ledge, held by a rope as a couple of gangsters who threaten him to pay up. And up above, his life hanging on a literal thread, Byung-hoon hollers: Byung-hoon takes all of this information and deduces that Jae-in will be drawn to the characters in her favorite detective novels.
Thus, their client must also have an air of mystery about them. She barely has time to gaze longingly before a crowd gathers, and the same thugs menacingly walk past her.
Her suspicion radar pings, and Jae-in takes the bait. They run into a small wrinkle, however, when she initially searches for the police officers, and Min-young runs ahead to create a distraction. Jae-in roams the platform until her eyes fall upon Joon-hyuk sitting mysteriously on a bench. Byung-hoon instructs his client to lift his head and wait ten seconds… Like clockwork, Jae-in rushes forward to lead Joon-hyuk away.
Without a word, he gently pushes her into the train just before the door closes. Caught up in her own whirlwind, she finally discovers the hidden name card.
And on the sidelines, Min-young casts Byung-hoon an impressed look. He spots Jae-in approaching, and swiftly pulls Min-young close to him, telling her that their target will readily recognize her.
Min-young denies it, and pushes him away from her. But she starts to lose her balance, and Byung-hoon grabs her just in time, pulling her in closer.
