49 Days (2011): Season 1, Episode 3 - Episode #1.3 - full transcript

We should eat something first.

How can you think about eating right now,

when Ji-hyeon is fighting for her life?

You haven't eaten anything in days.

We shouldn't have done this.

We shouldn't have done this.

Never mind.

You haven't even slept, have you?

Get some rest
until the room service arrives.


What should we do?

So that was it.
That's why I got in that accident.

What's the matter, ma'am?

Do you need help?

Are you okay?

You are staying in this room, right?

No, I'm not.

But you were...

What exactly were you doing here?

This is another guest's room.


Did you see anyone on your way here?


What's the matter?

It's your room service.

Not that. You were arguing with someone.

Oh, that?

A strange lady was sitting by this door.

A woman was sitting here?

-You mean, right here?
-It was probably nothing, sir.

She seemed a little crazy.

She ran away.

Give me a minute.

Thank you.

Thank you, sir.

Min-ho, how can you...

say something like that right now?

You want Ji-hyeon's legal seal?
How dare you?

Thankfully, Mr. Shin is paying
no attention to Ji-hyeon's real estate.

We have to find it beforehand.

Do you actually expect me
to do something like that?

Ji-hyeon is in a coma, not even conscious!

We have to.

Min-ho! Right now, I...

just want to tear myself apart!

But you won't.


We didn't do that to her.

It could be our fault!

I'm heading out and won't be back.
You should head home, too.

Yes, Mr. Shin.

Take care.

You don't look well. Are you okay?

I know this is hard.

What about you? Aren't you scared?

Are you scared?

I am.

I'm so afraid.

Are you regretting this?

Can we just end this?

Let's stop right here.

I'm sorry, but this is just too much.

This is not what I wanted.

Ji-hyeon is getting ready for her wedding!

Can we just run away somewhere?

I know this is scary but remember.

No regrets.

This is not something
we should be regretting.

Regretting is something

we cannot afford to do right now.


Take it.

Hey, Ji-hyeon.

-Are you busy?
-What is it?

Are you finished already?

So are you busy or not?

Sounds like you are done.

Are you coming to the office?

Or can I help you with anything?

Okay, sure.

I think...

Ji-hyeon is bored.


Just a few more days.

The site of the accident was
near where we were.

Maybe she was following us.

She called you
because she didn't want to go alone.

She was probably coming to see me
because she knew you were busy.

I'm the one who told her
we should go together.

I gave her the time and the location.

I know...

this must be very difficult for you.

I know all too well.

And you are still asking me to do this?

Listen, In-jeong.

If we quit right now,

what would that make me?

Yes, Ji-hyeon is in a coma.

But that won't stop me.

I'm doing this, with or without you.

I'm doing this.

I'm not.

I can't do this!

Think back to how this all started.

Remember why we are here.

If we run from this now,

will that really make us happy?

If we quit right here,

will that bring Ji-hyeon back?

Come on!

What part of "emergency" don't you get?

You knew this, didn't you?

You knew why and how
I got into that accident!

Why didn't you tell me?

I got into that accident
because of Min-ho and In-jeong!


classified information. That's why.

-That's right. Classified.

Please tell me you know what that means.

Wait, you don't?

I'm talking about heavenly secrets...


What? What?

Why are you...

Women spirits! The things you do!

Your tear has no effect on me.

So you knew and didn't even tell me.

I have to successfully complete
my five-year term.

I saw them together in a hotel room!

You know what? I don't care!

Your life story, your romance,

your little love triangle, and betrayal.

I don't care about any of those!

When do you think this started?
I didn't even notice.

How can they betray me like this?

So why was he trying to marry me?

You are barking up the wrong tree!

All you had to do was
to knock on the door and ask them!

You said I'm not allowed
to reveal my identity!

That's right.

You remembered. Good job.

This is your mess. You are on your own.

She's way too soft.

So what am I supposed to do now?

Hey! It doesn't matter why you died.
You don't have time for that!

Worry about your current situation.

You have 49 days. Wait, no.

Make that 46 days.
Think about how to make the most of them.

You'd be surprised how fast 49 days pass.

This will be a private summer house
for me and Ji-hyeon. I'm counting on you.


It doesn't seem like
Song I-kyung is coming back.

-Why would she?
-Should I try calling her?

She's a fraud.
You won't find her number on the résumé.

So you think she was lying too?

-You owe me 10,000 won.
-I don't have it!

We had a little bet, you see?

A bet?

You little brat!

You don't bet on a person!

Ms. Ma, you think this is a joke, huh?

You idiots!

What do you think you are doing?
Did I hear betting?

Why, you! Come here!

Ms. Bang!


I told you not to come! It's too cold.

I told you to wait until spring, didn't I?

I was going to, honey!


I was waiting for you
in the warm, heated room.


Suddenly I started hearing this sound!

Sound? What sound?

-The sound of a megaphone!
-A megaphone?

-What did it say?

Will she just tell us?

Ma'am! What did it say?

"Get your herring!"

"Get your kelp!"

"Get your kelp and herring right here!
They are together right here in my truck!"

That's what it said.

They were together! Just like us!

-What do you think? She came looking for--

Zip it!


So I brought some herring for you!

But why is everyone so glum?

Glum? We are?

Is it because of the lady outside?

What are you doing here?


Jun-hui! Bring me her bag!

But I've brought my record.

You have it?

I gave you one hour.

I even gave you money for the taxi.
It's 2:27 p.m. right now.

Get your bag and leave.

I saw a friend at the hotel!

Is that supposed to be an excuse?

I also saw my fiancé.

That's why...

That's why...

I saw them together.

They were together, and I saw it...

And then I got my paper...

I get it, okay?
Just go home and come to work tomorrow!

-Oh, no!

-Oh, what do we do?
-Ms. Song!

-Hey, wake up!

Hey, pops. What do we do?

-She needs to lie down! Here!
-No, just...

-Stop it!
-What is it?

You shouldn't be the one to lift her.

We got a young man right here.

A fiancé?

You flirted with Min-ho
even though you have a fiancé?

What kind of fiancé would
leave his woman in this state?

Did you really see your fiancé and friend
together at the hotel?

It says it right here! Song I-kyung!

So she did work at Seoul Hotel!

Maybe it's a different Song I-kyung!

We haven't even checked her ID yet!

Do you actually trust anyone?



What soup did you make today?

But you don't eat soup.

My Hae-won's favorite, of course.

Radish soup. It strengthens
your digestive function. Why do you ask?


Give her a bowl of soup.

Who are we talking about?

And some rice, too.

Oh, give her plenty. Big portions, okay?


Did Han Kang do this?

I was expecting
a splash of cold water to wake up.

Sure glad I wasn't fired.

While I'm on a hospital bed,

they meet in a hotel room?

Is that where they've been
seeing each other all this time?

Hey, lady!

Nothing's missing, right?

We should check upstairs too.

She looked like she was running away.

She forgot this.

I bet there's nothing important in here.

Just leave it alone.

I said leave it!

You see this?

If we quit right here,
will that bring Ji-hyeon back?

Think back to how this all started.

Remember why we are here.

I'm doing this, with or without you.

I'm doing this.

I am so hungry.

No extra work today?

How do chicken and beer sound?

-I'm on a diet!

Everyone's going home. Where is In-jeong?


How could you have an affair with Min-ho?

Did you like him first?

That can't be.

So did Min-ho ask you out first?

That doesn't make sense either.

What in the world happened
between you two?

Why are you at my house?
What are you going to do?

Please tell me it isn't true.

You are not actually dating Min-ho.

You two just had something to discuss
in a hotel room, right?

Who is it?

It's me, In-jeong.

Of course! People have meetings
in hotel rooms all the time!

I understand.

You liar! So what was that about?

Shin In-jeong!
You are locking me out of my own house?

I knew it.

How's her mother?

She fell asleep a little while ago
after taking sleeping pills.

I see...

So what brings you here?

I just thought I should see
how she's doing.

Don't mind me and go back to work, ma'am.

What are you doing here?

Mrs. Shin.

I thought you were sleeping.

I was going to fall asleep,
but the bell woke me up.

What are you doing in Ji-hyeon's room?

I just thought of her and came here.

She's at the hospital. Why are you here?

You know she's still at the hospital.

But her condition is--

Are you telling me that Ji-hyeon is dead?

She's still alive. You shouldn't be here
without her permission.

Come on out.

Don't treat my daughter
like she's already dead.

I don't like that.


How long should we wait?

A month? A year? A decade?

Just tell me how long I need to wait.

You are a doctor!
Can you at least tell me that?

I'm truly sorry.

So I just wait?

With no end in sight?

No other options?

What are you going to do?

Min-ho. Why did you come back here?

Father. Please let me know
if you will be away from the bed.

You can't leave her alone like this.

I was just talking to Dr. Cho.

Dr. Cho? Why?

-Is Ji-hyeon--
-No, it's not that.

By the way, what happened to
Ji-hyeon's land deal from the other day?

-It's been signed successfully.
-Is that right?

Then all that's left is for us
to purchase the Haemi-do site.

Shouldn't you see to it personally?

I'm counting on you.

I have to stay at her side for a while.

I know this is difficult for you, Min-ho.

But I'm her father.


I couldn't find it.

Her mother won't let me in her room.

What is she talking about?

She just doesn't want me there.
Ji-hyeon is still...


Is she talking to her brother?

But I heard he's in a province.

All right then.

Jin-young. It's me.

Min-ho, were you even listening to me?

Please let me stay here today.

You need to check on Mother as well.

You are the one who needs to sleep.

I'll stay with her.


Ji-hyeon would like to stay with you
completely for one day.

Good thing I didn't go to the hospital.

I would have missed him.

I just don't get it.

You used to text me ten times a day.

You came to see me every chance you got.

You told me all your
email and social media passwords.

You did, didn't you?

No matter how insensitive I am,
I know you loved me for real.

Zero five zero five!

You see? That's my birthday.

You told me the password
so that I can visit you whenever.

Did In-jeong approach you first?
Were you tempted?

Tell me what happened. I want details.

Min-ho, can you see me?

There's nothing much to talk about.

I already told you everything.

You even let her into your place?

Did anything feel weird?

She wasn't suspicious of me.

She just can't let go of Ji-hyeon yet.

-Are you sure?
-I know her mother well.

That's good.

You should have just made up an excuse.

Maybe you forgot something
in Ji-hyeon's room.

Or maybe she borrowed something from you.

When she confronted me,

I just went blank. I couldn't even think.

What are you two talking about?

Are you sure her seal is in the drawer?

Seals, bankbooks, credit cards...

She always keeps those in the left drawer.

You mean, my legal seal?

Certified copy of the register,
certificate of seal impression,

and the registered seal.
That's everything, right?

So meticulous today.

I gave him my seal back then.
So why is he looking for it?

I should have checked thoroughly.

I want to be free of work
at least three days before the wedding.

Don't worry.

Business is business, but I'm not going
to push you into a forced marriage.

Huh? What is this?

This was in the seal case.

How careless of her...

One moment, please.



Hello? Isn't this Shin Ji-hyeon's phone?

What? An accident?

I know she's sometimes careless,

but I never expected her to
not even check her legal seal.

So that's why you arrived
at the emergency room so quickly!

I can't go there when her mother is home.

I told Mr. Shin
that everything went well back there.

You did?

So what do we do now?

We have to find the seal
before anyone notices.

If Ji-hyeon's property in Jinhae remains,
our plan will fail.

Everything we've done so far was to bring
that land out to the deal table.

So what are you going to do?

Don't worry. I'll find a way.

Go home and get some rest.

I have to return to the hospital.

Make sure no one sees you when you leave.

What in the world are you two planning?

What are you doing to my dad?

What are you doing?

Packing some clothes
to stay at the hospital.

You haven't gotten any sleep
even with those pills! I can't let you!

I can sleep there.

Lady, can you bring me some towels
with my toothpaste and toothbrush?

And my shampoo and conditioner too!

Stop this. Please.


You know why I'm doing this.

Dear, I'm okay.

No, you aren't.

You are not okay.

And neither is Ji-hyeon.

She's not ready
to show herself to you yet!

She's still not ready?

Will I still not recognize her?

I haven't seen her in days!

Stop whining, honey!
I need some new clothes.

And please prepare the bath for me too.

I'm sorry, dear!

I just want to die!

I want to go before Ji-hyeon!

Then what about me?

I said I love you, didn't I?

I really do love you!
Why don't you trust me?

You get 49 days
to find 3 people who truly love you.

If you do, you can stay.

Whenever someone sheds a pure tear drop,
it will go in there.



What should I do?

How much do I owe you?

Huh? So you remember me now.

Let me see the bill.

Don't you pay your insurance fee?

You weren't covered
because of the arrears.

What about the taxi fare?

I paid quite a bit.
Gyeonggi rates are pretty high.

Don't you want to know who I am?


Don't you want to know why I was there
at the site of the accident?

I don't care.

What if I tell you that
I know why you were there?

You are welcome to ask me.


I'll see you tomorrow.

You have 45 days, 3 hours, and 29 minutes.

Did you go through
something like this too?

Is that why you are living like this?

You have 44 days, 3 hours, and 29 minutes.

Destroying our property now, are you?

Can you even pay for this?

I didn't call for you.

I don't need you to call me
to appear in front of you.

You didn't show up when I called, either.

I can't do this right now. Leave me.

Why the long face?

You know why.

You mean the fact that
your life in this world meant nothing?

I can't return to life.

That's exactly why I'm here,
to call the elevator for you.

The elevator?

When do you want to go?
It's 10:35 a.m. right now, so...

How about 11 a.m.?

You need some time to wrap things up.

What do you mean?

Are you telling me...

that you are going to call
the elevator to the afterlife?

You haven't even entered her body
in two days.

I figured you were ready to leave.

I never said that! I'm not ready to leave!

Three people who truly love you.

You can't find them, can you?

Hey, wait a minute!

You can't do this! I still have 45 days!

You mean 44 days!

Do I have only 44 days left?

Let's go. Don't embarrass yourself
in this world anymore.

Just move on to the next life.
What do you say?

Does 11 o'clock sound good?

No way!

I didn't give you those 49 days
to waste like that!

Okay, I'll stop wasting them.

I didn't show up yesterday without notice.
Also, I'm late today.

I think I'm going crazy.

I thought you quit that day.

No, no! That's not it!

I had personal issues
that I can't really tell.

They were really serious.

-Did you eat?

Did you eat anything?


I haven't eaten anything in two days.

What's this then?

Oh, that's not...

Ramen noodle doesn't count.

Pops, make something for her.

Thanks, Kang.

Thank you so much!


Pops. How is this possible?

Anything is possible. Technically.

But how can this be?

The girl who was hopeless
until two days ago

became an expert two days later.

I mean, I've done better.
That's not that impressive.

She sure is mysterious.


What can I do now?

What should I do?

What am I supposed to be doing?


Kang's here too.

Jun-hui! Take out the trash.

On it!

I'll do it.

Thank you for the other night.

You are a new employee, right?

Ms. Song I-kyung, right?

Don't you remember me?

Should I?

So you want to stay
at Ji-hyeon's side, Seo-u?

Yes, together with In-jeong.
Only during the night time.

I stopped by the hospital earlier today.
Mr. Shin was in a bad shape.

What are they talking about?

He's got a company to run,
but he wants to be there personally.

Who cares about the company right now?

Mr. Shin is putting himself at risk too!

I'll do it.

I'm asking you
to talk to Mr. Shin for us, Min-ho.

Okay. I'll talk to him about this.

I think he can trust us.

What about her mother?
Still in a state of shock?

Yes. She can't even leave the house.

She can't even eat or sleep.

Be careful!

I'm sorry!

Watch the shards of glass.

She's scared. Take her away.
Let Jun-hui clean this up.


Who is that? I've never seen her before.

Just a part-time server.

Kang, let's head to the office.

I'll see you two later.

I'm so sorry, Mom!


I'm sorry, Mom!

A message from the 49-day control center:
Please prepare to head back home.

Beep beep beep beep!

Wait, my shift is until midnight?

You mean you don't remember?

From 11:00 a.m. to 12 a.m.
for 4,000 won per hour.

If you actually worked for a full shift,
you'd know.

-Just get his permission first.

He's probably going to yell at me again.

Are you sure you can lead

the Haemi-do project in your condition?

Mr. Shin entrusted the project to me.

He did?

I'm really sorry, but...

What is it now?

I have something to tell you.
Can we talk outside?

She probably didn't expect me here.
I can step out if you want.

Just tell me. What is it?

I actually can't work past eleven.

Your shift ends at midnight.
I made it very clear.

I was so hungry that day
my ears weren't paying attention.

So you only want to work until 11 p.m.
because you weren't paying attention?

It's not that. I just have to be back
by midnight no matter what.

Someone is waiting for me.

She can only move when I'm there.

Fine. You can go.

Really? Can I go?

Wait, do you mean, like, never to return?

I mean you work
from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. now.

Thank you!

You sure are generous to her.

Generous? What do you mean?

You seem to be sloppy, but you are
always serious when it comes to working.

You can't stand people
who take responsibilities lightly.

Knowing that, she's having it really easy.

-I actually planned to go easy on her.
-Go easy on her?

Why is that?

I have my reason.

-So is she your type?

I've never seen you
so interested in a woman.

That woman you've been looking for.
I've been dying to know.

-Is she similar to her?
-That's not it!

That's so you.
Always witty no matter what happens.


Yeah, I'm trying.

This is what Ji-hyeon would want.


Hey, Kang, she would want this,
wouldn't she?

She would want me to endure this,
just as I always do.

No way!

I guess you are right.
Shin Ji-hyeon would want that.

No! Absolutely not!

She would want me to endure this,
just as I always do.

Now I see your true face.

If Ji-hyeon's property in Jinhae remains,
our plan will fail.

We have to find the seal
before anyone notices.

Right. My legal seal.

I have to make sure they don't find it.

I'm going to be late!


Hold on, hold on, hold on

I'm not the Grim Reaper, but the Scheduler

Can you let me touch an object?

I'm just going to go into my room
and get my legal seal.

What kind of nonsense is this?

Just for a day! No, just for an hour!

I can't enter my room as Song I-kyung.

You know what you need? A voice recorder.

Beep. A Scheduler does not interfere
in human affairs.

They are after my land!

No, it's more than just my land.

I don't know the details,
but they are after my dad's company!

That's none of my concern.

Then can you bring me the seal yourself?

I repeat! A Scheduler does not interfere
in human affairs!

So what do I do?

What am I supposed to do?

Never call me here again.

I feel icky when I come to this room.

Do you really have to play
everything by the book?

That's right! Bye!

Knowledge is power.

Knock and the door will be opened to you.

Wait, everyone uses
secret number codes these days!

Beep beep beep beep! Ring ring!

He didn't help me
but he just made fun of me.

There are not many customers
between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

and there's not much work to do anyway!

Your point?

Besides, you didn't really need me
additionally in the first place.

You are more trouble than help.
Did you notice that?

What are you trying to say?

You can't fire me for saying these things.

I'll show you why.

You gave me 52,000 won that day
for my labor.

The money left over is 36,000 won
after paying the taxi and the fare.

This is all I got.

If you fire me now,
I'll starve until I find another job.

That being said, I absolutely must
take care of something today.

Is that a threat?

Just give me three hours.

Absence without permission, tardiness,
and now, an unauthorized leave.

What's next?

But you don't have to pay me
for those three hours.

Are you patronizing me now?

I wasn't going to pay you for them anyway.

So does that mean I can go?

You'll be blessed.

She's energetic
just like a certain someone.

Right on time, lady!

Never realized how good my bed is.

I can't leave any traces!

That's not it. Where is it?

It's my money. This is okay, right?

Make the money you need on your own.

Who could it be?
No one should be coming at this hour!

Why are you out here, Mother?
Where's the housekeeper?

She's out to buy groceries.

What are you doing here?

I came here when she's out.

We should go in, Mother.

You are here to get Ji-hyeon's belongings?

I want to bring her some memorable objects
and place them in her room.

Things like the gifts I gave her
or the photos of her parents.

They may help her.

That's very thoughtful of you.

I'm just going to pick out a few things.
Is that okay?

Of course.

You know what she likes
better than anyone.

Why can't I find it?
