Episode 2 kicked off with Ahn checking a book which revealed the fact that she and Han were secret friends; however, the latter clearly has forgotten about it.

It explains the subtle change in Ahn’s behaviour once she learns about Han’s true identity in “Once Upon a Small Town Episode 1.

Meanwhile, Han is still having a hard time adjusting to the new environment and gets quite tense with his new appointment for the day.

He began his day with his usual morning workout but was interrupted by the group of women from earlier. 

He somehow managed to subdue the awkward interaction, only to get into an embarrassing situation with a kid.

As usual, he tried to impose Seoul’s etiquette on one of the kids of Huidong, Kim Seon-dong, but it was far from what he expected.

They were joined by the in charge of Huidong Young Men’s Association (Lee Sang-hyeon). He tells Han that he will see Ahn most during his time in Huidong.
