She advises her to do the same so she can easily move on. Bong Soon promises she would.

Bong Soon replies that he can now go on a date with her anytime since she is not special anymore and feels sad about it.
Min Hyuk places his hands on her shoulders and checks if she is okay so she responds that she will be honest that she is not, but she is optimistic that she will move on fast just as what omma told her. Min-Min utters that it does not matter to him whether she is peculiar or not because he just wants her to be happy. He remarks how he can do everything that requires physical strength for her since he is her oppa. He smirks how he will open a jar for her this time remembering how Gook Doo did it for her before. Bong-Bong is dubious of his claim so she teases if he is really older than her so he insists that he is.
Bong Soon bluffs that she knows they are of the same age so Min Hyuk gripes at how he can never trust the police because he thought Gook Doo revealed it to her. She gets the affirmation of her speculation so she starts playing cute on how she would drop the honorifics and will just talk casually with him since they are friends.

An announcement airs in the building that the exits were all sealed because of a suspicious person. Min Hyuk confirms Bong Soon’s suspicion that Jang Hyun is in the building as his evil laugh broadcasts in the air. He taunts Min Hyuk on proving his competitive spirit by finding him or his company will explode in 15 minutes.

He replies he will not go anywhere without her. Bong Soon tries to wriggle out of the metal bind to no avail. She weeps so hard making all of us weep and begs Min Hyuk to leave as time is almost running out, but he utters how he will stay by her side so she won’t be afraid.
Bong Soon makes a last attempt and pleads to give back her power so she can save Min Hyuk. Because the power of love defies everything, the heavens and the book in their house light up and showers her with a blessing. Bong Soon feels her power coming back and rushes to free herself. She picks up the bomb, destroys the door lock and runs to throw the bomb exploding painting the sky with a pyrokinetic festival.
Episode 14 Thoughts
I will give the 2017 Best Kdramaland Boyfriend award to Ahn Min Hyuk already, and I think everyone will agree. This is the best episode yet in the series for me and it put me on a whirlwind of sweet bliss, exhausting thrills and all is well sigh closure. I was hoping two episodes of fan service but given the amount of laugh and heart fluttering scenes this drama gifted me, I am so looking forward to the finale even if we will have to finally do a last showdown with Jang Hyun. I know that I will be sad after this drama ends and will miss Park Hyung Sik terribly so I hope he will get back to dramaland soon like the last quarter of this year to entice me.
