In one scene, Jang Gyeo Wool waited outside the hospital and was greeted by Ahn Jung Won with a warm hug.
On their first date, the surgery resident asked him about their previous patient Yeon-u. He shared that after the child died, her mom still regularly visits the hospital.
Ahn Jung Won explained that Yeon-u's mom wants someone to talk to about her child and the only people who can relate to her are the staff and doctors at the hospital. He advised her to accommodate the mother and also reassured her that once she healed and moved on with the situation, she would eventually stop coming to Yulje.
