“Is that kind of experience really necessary for acting?”

“No, not really.
I don ’t need to have experience in medicine to convincingly portray a doctor.
However, having such experience does broaden one ’s—spectrum, so to speak.”

“Hmm…” Kang Jin-Ho rubbed his chin as he entered his serious-thinking mode.

Choi Yeon-Ha quickly waved her hands.
“Please don ’t misunderstand me, Mister Jin-Ho.
I ’m not saying Miss Se-Ah needs to experience something like that at this point in her life.
Considering her age, she has all the necessary talent and is already successful enough in her own right.
Her looks are great, too.
Not as good as her brother ’s, but still great.”

Kang Jin-Ho slowly nodded.
Since Choi Yeon-Ha ’s opinion was like this, Kang Eun-Yeong ’s competitiveness as an actor should be pretty solid, then.

Choi Yeon-Ha grinned and leaned closer.
“Are you done satisfying your curiosity, Mister Jin-Ho?”

“More or less, yes.”

“In that case, let ’s get going.
I ’m starving.”


“I did warn you about my plan to gorge on expensive food today, didn ’t I?”

“You did.” Kang Jin-Ho nodded without much concern.

Choi Yeon-Ha smirked at his response.
“I guess the story about you having a lot of money is true? You don ’t seem concerned about the prospect of expensive food at all.”

Kang Jin-Ho shrugged his shoulders.
“How expensive can some food get, anyway?”

“You haven ’t experienced a two-million-won full-course meal, then?”

“…I ’m guessing they use gold ingots instead of rice?”

Choi Yeon-Ha covered her lips as a loud chuckle broke free.
“Whether they use gold or rice, you ’ll see when we get there.
You brought your car, yes?”

I don ’t have a car anymore.”

“Mm? What happened to that red Lamborghini?”

Kang Jin-Ho avoided meeting Choi Yeon-Ha ’s gaze.
“I had to scrap it recently.”

Choi Yeon-Ha stared weirdly at him.
“…You certainly have a talent for surprising people in strange things, Mister Jin-Ho.”

Kang Jin-Ho shuddered a little.
Why did it feel like he was about to experience a repeat of Ju Yeong-Gi ’s nagging?

Mercifully, Choi Yeon-Ha didn ’t assault him about the car anymore.
“In that case, let us take my car.”


They exited the cafe and headed to the parking lot at the back of the building.
And that was where Kang Jin-Ho discovered a large black SUV.

’Mm… ’

The car sometimes spoke volumes about its owner ’s tendencies and personality.
In that sense, seeing Choi Yeon-Ha drive around a large SUV seemed a little surprising.
However, it also seemed rather natural, in a way.

Considering her fame, her job as an actor, as well as her star quality, maybe a sleek sportscar would have been more suitable for her.
But she had a pragmatic side to her, so an SUV like this one seemed like a good match in that aspect.

“Please get in,” said Choi Yeon-Ha while pointing to the passenger side.

“Of course…” Kang Jin-Ho slipped into the seat.
Choi Yeon-Ha waited until he was buckled up and then…
unhesitantly stepped on the accelerator.

’…Yup, I ’m changing my mind. ’

As Kang Jin-Ho initially thought, a sleek sportscar suited Choi Yeon-Ha better.
A large SUV wasn ’t suitable for a reckless driver who slammed on her accelerator and snatched away the narrowest of gaps between other road users, after all!

However, there was something rather charming about the way Choi Yeon-Ha was clinging onto a large steering wheel bigger than her torso and turning it this way and that with both of her hands.

Choi Yeon-Ha glanced at him after reaching the open road.
“Have you given ’that ’ some more thought?”

“What are you talking about?”

“Being an actor, Mister Jin-Ho.”

Kang Jin-Ho tutted quietly.
“How many times do I have to tell you that I ’m not interested?”


“Yes, really…” Kang Jin-Ho resolutely shut her down.

“Very well.
However, you are totally at my mercy today, Mister Jin-Ho.
Even if I keep talking about you becoming an actor, you must not lose your cool, okay?”

Search bit.ly/3iBfjkV for the original.

“Understood…” Kang Jin-Ho groaned and looked outside the window.
For some reason, he had a feeling that today would be a long one.


The meal didn ’t turn out to be all that expensive.
Despite her attempts at trying to scare Kang Jin-Ho, Choi Yeon-Ha became deflated by his flat response and took him to a family restaurant instead.

After that…
all Kang Jin-Ho could remember was doing his utmost best to follow Choi Yeon-Ha around everywhere.
He lugged around many shopping bags while hopping between various shops he didn ’t even know existed.
Then, she said she would show him the greatness of acting by taking him to a stage production.
Afterward, they went on a drive outside the city limits before stopping by a local diner to have dinner.
Before he could realize it, it was already late at night.

’Gee whiz, I don ’t think I can do this again… ’

Kang Jin-Ho groaned while leaning against the back of the chair in exhaustion.
They had returned to the cafe where they met earlier in the day.

Choi Yeon-Ha grinned and asked, “Are you alright?”

Kang Jin-Ho slowly nodded.
“Yes, I ’m fine.”

“You have amazing stamina, Mister Jin-Ho.
Most people, whether they are men or women, would throw in their towels after hanging out with me for a day, you know? Even my managers often beg me to stop going around so much,” Choi Yeon-Ha explained while giggling away.

Seeing her like this somehow put Kang Jin-Ho ’s mind at ease.
How should he put this? Were this sense of accomplishment and the refreshed, weight-off-the-shoulders feeling something one could get after working their butt off to finish all the piled-up vacation homework in one day?

It did kind of feel that way.
Kang Jin-Ho felt as if he had cleared a task that had to be performed sooner or later.

Kang Jin-Ho expressed his thanks one more time.
“Miss Choi, thank you for your help.”

“No need to thank me, Mister Jin-Ho.”

Obviously, Kang Jin-Ho had witnessed how chaotic a film set could get.
So, he could easily guess how much trouble he had caused Choi Yeon-Ha by requesting three days off for his little sister.
Moreover, she even sacrificed her image and threw a tantrum, demanding her scenes to be filmed first, which lessened the dissatisfaction of the PDs and writers toward Kang Eun-Yeong.

On top of that, Choi Yeon-Ha even coached Kang Eun-Yeong to call the PDs and apologize for delaying the filming of her scenes.
Basically, she had done everything she could humanly do in this case.

Repaying such debt with one date seemed like a poor trade-off.
It was to the extent that Kang Jin-Ho wouldn ’t have any way to defend himself if Choi Yeon-Ha decided to call him a fraudster, an unscrupulous cheat.

Choi Yeon-Ha relaxedly asked, “I guess things will get hectic for you soon?”

Kang Jin-Ho shrugged his shoulders.
“Actually, things have been rather quiet for me lately.”

“Don ’t worry, it ’s gonna get busy for you soon.” Choi Yeon-Ha smiled brightly.
“Is it tomorrow? After tomorrow, you ’ll be too busy to even get a moment ’s rest, Mister Jin-Ho.”

“I don ’t follow…” Kang Jin-Ho tilted his head.

“Well, if you don ’t get it, you just need to experience it.
Setting all that aside, when will we have our second date?”

Kang Jin-Ho ’s head tilting intensified.
“We need to meet again?”

“Goodness, will you listen to this guy? So rude!” Choi Yeon-Ha looked flabbergasted, then stared at Kang Jin-Ho.
“Mister Jin-Ho?”


“Don ’t you find me pretty?”

“I do find you pretty.” Kang Jin-Ho nodded.
Objectively speaking, Choi Yeon-Ha was a beautiful woman.
Objectively speaking, that was.

“And that ’s why we ’ll go out on another date, Mister Jin-Ho.
Men love to hang out with pretty girls, after all.
And finding someone else as pretty as me won ’t be easy, even for you.
Don ’t you think so?” Choi Yeon-Ha winked at Kang Jin-Ho with a grin.
“I ’m interested in you, Mister Jin-Ho.
Not as a potential actor, but as a man, you see.”

Kang Jin-Ho was left utterly speechless and could only stare at Choi Yeon-Ha in a daze.

Seventy won is equivalent to five US cents.
