Jang Ki-yong, convinced of destiny with Chun Woo-hee
‘He is not a hero,’ but is Jang Ki-yong the lifesaver who saved Cheon Woo-hee at the scene of a fire 13 years ago?

In the 8th episode of JTBC's Saturday-Sunday drama 'I'm Not a Hero', which aired on the 26th, Bok-ju Joo (played by Jang Ki-yong) once again realized the unstoppable fate of Do Da-hae (played by Chun Woo-hee). Do Da-hae found out that the ring she received from the savior of her life belonged to the Bok family. “I guess I have to save you. The ending of the returner smiling, saying, “I guess I am an arrogant psychic,” made me even more curious about the ending of the two-way salvation romance. Due to the inevitable fate of Returning Joo and Do Da-hae, the viewer ratings for the 8th episode recorded 4.2% nationwide and 5.0% in the metropolitan area (Nielsen Korea, based on paid households), continuing the positive response on the rise.

The more Do Da-hae retreats, the more Bok-gwa-ju approaches him. Baek Il-hong (played by Kim Geum-soon) also accepted Do Da-hae's offer to steal the future if she gave him time. However, Do Da-hae took bold action to separate Gokwak-ju from herself and the sauna family. At the meeting where she is looking for a fourth marriage partner, Do Da-hae does the same things she did to him as if she was returning home. He wanted to show that what he thought was fate was part of the plan, but it was no use to Returning Master. Guk Guk-ju now knew very well that Do Da-hae's actions were all for his own benefit.

Returning Joo started a plan to make Do Da-hae laugh. Returning to Gangneung, Baek Joo remembered the ‘red bean shaved ice of life’ that Do Da-hae mentioned. The sight of Baek Jae-joo carrying red bean shaved ice and delivering it back in time to the past where Cheon Woo-hee was present created excitement. When Do Da-hae saw the red bean shaved ice, she was reminded of the past 13 years ago and was moved to tears. Although Do Da-hae was grateful to her grandmother who bought her red bean shaved ice the first time she saw her because she was a survivor of the fire, Do Da-hae realized that she could use her misfortune to become a little happier. It was a difficult time in Do Da-hae's life. From then on, he gave Do Da-hae, who smiled bitterly and said that he had used his misfortune as a base for fraud, the first place lottery number. Returning Joo, who stole the future away from Zinnia Hong. Do Da-hae was even more burdened by Jae-wook Joo’s kind sincerity.

In the end, Do Da-hae decided to use the last resort. He went to find Bok Man-heum (played by Go Doo-shim), the person who could put the brakes on the comeback. He told Bok Man-heum that Guk Jae-ju was trying to make a deal with Zinnia Hong and told him to stop him. He then handed Bok Man-heum the first place lottery ticket he had bought using the number given by Bok Gui-ju and asked, “Please get Bok Gui-ju away from me.”

Returning Joo learned a shocking truth. Do Da-hae said he had a keepsake of the person who saved him at the scene of a fire 13 years ago and asked him to find it and pass it on to his family. Surprisingly, the ring said to have been given by a lifesaver was a ring belonging to the Bok family that Bok Man-heum had seen in a precognitive dream. After confirming that the ring that Do Da-hae had stolen was still in the safe, Baek Jae-ju became convinced that he was the one who saved Do Da-hae at the scene of the fire 13 years ago. "What do we do. I guess I have to save you. The returner's confession, "I guess I'm an arrogant psychic," added to the heart-throbbing excitement and emotion. In particular, Bok Man-heum's precognitive dreams are heightening curiosity. This is because at the scene of the fire, a scene of Guk-ju Jo putting the Bok family ring on Do Da-hae was captured, along with a scene of flames engulfing the two people. I wonder how the salvation of both Guk Jae-joo and Do Da-hae will end.
