For me, 2017 and 2018 were the most difficult years. I didn’t really understand myself at the time. I shed a lot of tears back then.

Hearing Chaeryeong confess she cried a lot back then, Jang Sun Kyu asked when the last time Chaeryeong had cried was. In response, Chaeryeong revealed it actually hadn’t been that long ago. The last time that she broke down in tears was during a phone call with her sister when Chaeyeon told her something that absolutely broke her heart.

A while back I cried while talking to my older sister. They were tears of sadness. She told me that she couldn’t sleep well and my heart broke because of that.

Hearing the reason for Chaeryeong’s most recent tears, Jang Sung Kyu remarked that Chaeryeong must really love her family.

I can really feel your love for your family. You kept talking about your dad just now too.
