Jaesun had to head back to Korea for his 2-year military service while Ana’s business encountered terrible obstacles. There were huge miscommunications, and Ana was faced with a decision to continue alone or keep faith in her love life. Ana and Jaesun grapple with a long distance relationship, but will it survive?
