Quick summary of the previous episode's ending.
|-||Soo-Bong, "W" is finished.|
Now, time there flows at the same speed as here.
|-||Maybe there is a way...|
|-||Except we still don't understand how it worked.|
|-||Even one year later...|
Title Card: Over one year ago...
(The bedroom is also Oh Sung-Moo's former office.)
Kang Chul, is working on the computer. Accounting spreadsheets.
Yeon-Joo embraces her tenderly from behind. Bouncy belly, she is pregnant.
|-||My beloved Kang Chul, very competent in mathematics...|
Are you in charge of household accounting?
|-||Yes, and we're going through a rough period.|
|-||Does my husband spend like a Cheabol, without affording it?|
|-||No, I know how to be economical when I have to.|
But our budget is far too meager.
|-||It's my fault.|
I did not want to remain subject to the fate imposed by "W".
|-||Instead of founding a computer company, I chose acting as a career.|
Except that my drama won't start until next year.
|-||I'm at fault too...|
I've given up on the hospital, now that our number 4 will deliver a Chul-Moo.
|-||But I really want to draw!|
|~||Soo-Bong is going to take me as his assistant on his next project...|
|-||And then, we'll get Dad's inheritance in 4 months!|
|-||It's not immediate. We are in the bottom of the wave.|
|-||It's up to the man to feed his home, I was inconsistent.|
|-||So, you will be able to assume your role.|
|-||What do you mean?|
|-||Maybe you liked my money more than me.|
Should I bring you some gold bars?
|-||Do me a favor. Bring me back a gold ingot!|
|-||Ah! I've thought about it.|
|-||But in "W" as here, gold bars are engraved and referenced.|
|-||I can import an ingot, but it will be unusable.|
Or I would have to fraudulently manufacture a falsified certificate.
|-||This kind of document is more controlled and accurate than a bank bill.|
A counterfeit would be detected, and I don't want to defraud.
|-||I have an idea that avoids fraud, and provides a compliant certificate.|
|-||You will always surprise me. How?|
|-||You must have observed...|
What we drew on the tablet was always imprecise.
|-||It's normal, a drawing is not a picture. It's sketchy and artistic.|
|-||But yet, the object materialized in "W" was always realistic.|
Even when the killer asked to draw the fake tablet.
|-||In "W", it could have been any tablet of the same model.|
But no, it was exactly the wanted object.
|-||My father's tablet, with the same powers!|
|-||So if I draw a certificate, even a rough one, it will become authentic.|
|-||I'll draw it for you when you get the ingot in "W".|
|-||You made some interesting observations.|
|-||But "W" is over. We can't draw anything on it anymore.|
|-||It's not certain.|
|-||Okay, it didn't work in the past...|
|~||I tried to draw my dad on a different tablet than his.|
|~||But he couldn't come back, "W" ended because his disappearance.|
|-||And all of Oh Sung-Moo's tablets are gone.|
|~||He had left a copy in his hotel room at the end of "W".|
|-||(presents the tablet) President, what should we do with this?|
|-||Burn it. Be sure it remains only ashes.|
|-||It couldn't work after the end, but I wanted to eliminate any potential risk.|
|-||I never understood why that copy didn't vanish.|
|~||The other copy here disappeared at the end of "W".|
|~||It makes sense, only items outside the manhwa disappear at its end. Otherwise, other creations in "W" would have disappeared too, including me.|
|-||I could have even brought this copy of the tablet here. It wouldn't have disappeared after the trip because it was in "W" before the end.|
|-||That's a pity, it could have been useful today.|
|-||It wouldn't have worked because the manhwa is over.|
|-||The world of "W" is back to what it was originally, independent.|
|~||Yet I was able to save you from drowning, while the manhwa was over.|
|~||Because the faceless killer had prevented the end.|
|~||Before it could be modified, the manhwa had displayed "TO BE CONTINUED".|
|~||The real end is definitive, with "FINAL CHAPTER" shown, and resolution of the main plot.|
|-||See, that's impossible.|
|-||You said the tablet was not magic...|
|-||It did not create the phenomenon. It became a tool for altering the laws of physics, a bridge between worlds.|
|-||Probably because Oh Sung-Moo worked on it for years.|
|-||A conjunction between his psychic imprint, the other world, and my will.|
|-||So any other tablet would have worked, after a while?|
|-||Yes, as long as it was sufficiently impregnated with the manhwa.|
Oh Yeon-Joo opens a closet, and takes out a tablet stored inside.
Yeon-Joo shows the tablet, the front, and the back with the talisman stuck on it.
|-||This is Soo-Bong's former tablet. He worked on it for years on "W".|
|-||... (slightly surprised)|
|-||On my father's tablet, his drawings didn't work. But I, the manhwa recognized me as one of its true authors.|
|-||Soo-Bong's tablet is already impregnated with manhwa and works.|
Bravo genius, your theory is validated!
|-||... ! (mouth open, falls from the sky)|
|~||The proof, I drew on it the dream that sent "W" back two months.|
|-||Wait Yeon-Joo, we won't create a sequel, just to fix our money issues!|
|-||I don't want to be dependent on a manhwa again.|
|-||And then... We can't create a sequel.|
|-||As you explained, the manhwa definitely ended, showing "FINAL CHAPTER".|
|-||So what's your idea?|
|-||Occasionally, authors publish inserts of already finished works.|
To please the fans, without creating a sequel.
|-||They tell, in a page or two, a undercovered situation.|
An amusing event, often from the hero's past.
|-||That's what we are gonna do!|
|-||I'll get the ingot in "W".|
Kang Chul does a quick search on the computer, and shows the screen to Yeon-Joo.
|-||This is the type of document we need.|
|-||Draw this certificate without delay.|
We'll see if it appears in my hand.
|-||See you soon, sweetheart...|
|(smiles tenderly at him)|
FZZT! Kang Chul disappears, blurred briefly by an inter-dimensional interference.
Oh Yeon-Joo turns on Soo-Bong's tablet and grabs her electronic stylus.
A few moments later... Yeon-Joo raises her stylus. Happy with her work.
On the tablet, the drawing of the certificate is finished.
Suddenly, Soo-Bong brokes at the front door (the partition is open to the living room).
Immediately, Yeon-Joo turns off the tablet.
|-||Noona, what are you doing on my old tablet?|
|-||Nothing, I was just cleaning it...|
Yeon-Joo takes a very dirty cloth, and polishes the tablet, leaving dirty traces on it.
|-||C'mon Noona, you're trying too hard.|
|-||A pregnant woman should not exhaust herself with this.|
It's my job to clean it!
|-||But no! You're nice enough to lend Chul some money.|
KZZT! Kang Chul reappears, materializing two steps away from Soo-Bong.
|-||(don't notice Soo-Bong) Yeon-joo, this has--|
|-||Oh Oh, Ah! (surprised)|
|-||... ! (surprised)|
BING! Kang Chul accidentally drops a heavy object behind him.
|-||I was scared! Did you go for a ride in "W", Hyung?|
Kang Chul picks up the object, hiding it from Soo-Bong as best he can.
|-||What's that, Hyung Kang?|
Kang Chul immediately put the object in his pocket, before it is seen.
Suddenly, Kang Chul comes forward boldly, and grabs Yeon-Joo by the wrist.
|-||We leave you, we have something to talk about.|
Then the couple slips away in their room, closing the door.
|-||What are those two cooking up?|
Kang Chul and Yeon-Joo whisper.
|-||So how's it going?|
With one hand, he takes out the certificate, as successful as a real one.
And in the other hand, the gold ingot.
Yeon-Joo is thrilled by the joy with Kang Chul.
Suddenly, she becomes serious again.
Yeon-Joo takes out her smartphone and scrolls through the pages.
|-||"END"! It always says "END"!|
|-||Nothing has changed.|
|-||The interlude has not been published.|
|-||Don't you think it's weird?|
|-||It happened as we had planned, it didn't create a sequel.|
|-||Is something wrong?|
|-||We explained the process well.|
But I have the feeling that I'm missing something.
|-||Your intuition, maybe?|
Back to present...
On the wall clock: 00:30 am.
Yeon-Joo and Kang Chul come back from the kitchen to talk to Soo-Bong.
|-||Soo-Bong, we'll still try your idea.|
|-||(enthusiastic) Really? I'll go in "W"?|
|-||We don't know if it will works, we'll have to do a test.|
|-||So what should I do?|
You take my hand and we teleport there?
|-||Come to our bedroom.|
The trio enters.
Oh Yeon-Joo opens a closet, and takes out Soo-Bong's old tablet.
|-||You stored it here, Noona?|
|-||But why take this old tablet?|
|-||You use yours to draw "Butterfly Girl".|
|-||Let's not mix it up.|
|-||Two living manhwas drawn on the same tablet is a problem?|
|-||I hadn't thought of that.|
|-||This indeed involves unpredictable risks.|
Yeon-Joo puts the tablet on the desk and turns it on.
|-||So, are you gonna influence the world of "W" and create a time difference?|
|-||But how? I thought there was no way to draw "W" anymore.|
|-||As soon as Hyung Kang came to the real world, after the end of "W", the time of the two worlds became the same.|
|-||I'll just draw a short, hidden scene.|
|-||An alternative scene unconnected to the main plot.|
Nothing that changes the manhwa's story and its conclusion.
The equipment is installed, Oh Yeon-Joo raises her electronic stylus.
|-||Okay, let's go.|
Kang Chul grabs Soo-Bong's arm, a bit surprised that things are moving so fast.
KFFR! They blink, brief colored and inter-dimensional interferences, then...
FZZT! They disappear!
An old van is parked on the street.
KRZKSHHHH. Radio interference noise.
Lee Sang-Deuk and Baek Young-Sik are sitting in the rear, facing a radio receiver.
TR-KR-ZTFFFF. Lee Sang-Deuk tries to adjust the device, turns buttons.
|-||It's the right frequency, I don't understand...|
|-||Boss, don't tell me I did all this for nothing!|
|-||Nothing to do, I've tried everything for one hour.|
|-||Why doesn't it work?|
|(he's fed up and relaxes a bit)|
|(he then frowns, and stares at Baek Young-Sik)|
|-||Did you turn on the transmitter before you placed it?|
|-||What do you mean?|
|-||The switch, the one I showed you, for heaven's sake!|
|-||Ah, the small button on the side... Was it that important?|
Lee Sang-Deuk grabs Baek Young-Sik and shakes him around.
|-||Poor spot, dumb asshole, fat cunt of shit!|
|-||... (he starts whining)|
|-||Sorry boss, I was running, I was shaking, I was afraid not to hide this mess in time, I completely forgot.|
|-||You're the king of morons!|
What's the point of a transmitter if it transmit nothing?
|-||I'm sorry, boss, I'll be more careful next time.|
|-||What next time? We're burned now!|
|-||Boss, it would have worked better if you had placed the transmitter yourself.|
|-||And couldn't we have slipped it in discreetly instead?|
|-||Are you a pickpocket ace? No? Neither do I!|
|-||All this has been nothing but trouble for us.|
|-||Admit it, boss, your plan was flawed from the beginning...|
|-||... (he relaxes with a sigh)|
|-||What are we going to do now?|
Replica of the house in "W", less furniture, empty office.
KZZT! Kang Chul and Soo-Bong appear here by teleportation.
|-||What are we going to do now?|
|-||I leave, and I'll come back in a few hours.|
|-||And me then?|
|-||You don't do anything either. You stay right here.|
Without listening to Soo-Bong, Kang Chul goes to the main room.
Kang Chul opens the drawer of a piece of furniture, and takes out a smartphone.
Soo-Bong enters, and looks at Kang Chul without the spring to speak.
Kang Chul quickly types a message and sends it.
He puts the phone in the drawer.
He winks at Soo-Bong, then FZZT!, he disappears.
Soo-Bong, disappointed, looks at the clock, which displays 01:30 am.
KZZT! Kang Chul reappears alongside Oh Yeon-Joo.
Yeon-Joo finishes a drawing showing Soo-Bong in the replica's living room
At the top of the drawing, a text box indicates "6 hours later".
|-||If the test succeeds, it will pass 6 hours for Soo-Bong.|
|-||Half an hour for us.|
|-||Let's plan this, so it's less chaotic than our adventures in "W".|
|-||Yes. Our life is about to go totally crazy again.|
|-||Already, no need to wait half an hour, it was just a maximum time.|
|-||Your first trip in "W" was shorter.|
So were the trips where I forced the chapter ends.
|-||I just need to make sure that the time spent matches your drawing.|
|-||See you soon...|
FZZT! Kang Chul disappears from the real world.
KZZT! Kang Chul reappears in "W".
The clock displays 07:30 am.
Soo-Bong is snoring on the sofa.
Kang Chul grabs a half-filled bottle of water from the coffee table.
He smiles, opens the bottle, and empties the contents on Soo-Bong's face.
|-||Hey, but oh!|
|-||Hyung? Are you back?|
|(notice it's daytime)|
|-||Did it work?|
DING DONG! They hear the doorbell ringing.
Without saying a word, Kang Chul goes to open the door.
He returns to the living room with Seo Do-Yoon.
|-||Soo-Bong, meet my Hyung. Now it's yours too!|
Do-Yoon is shocked and looks at Kang Chul, who is smiling.
Then he looks at Soo-Bong, who is speechless.
KZZT! Kang Chul reappears next to Oh Yeon-Joo.
|-||It worked! And Do-Yoon will take care of Soo-Bong.|
|-||I don't want spend 3 months away from You and our child.|
|-||It won't be easy for him...|
|-||Well, Soo-Bong is resolute to make efforts, he'll take on himself.|
|-||No, I meant Do-Yoon...|
|-||... (amused and surprised)|
|-||Let's end this quickly and get some sleep.|
I have a hard day of shooting tomorrow.
|-||All right, I'll draw Soo-Bong and Do-Yoon after a training session, with the text "3 months later".|
|-||Draw them in the replica instead.|
I asked them to be there 3 months later.
|-||This saves me unnecessary travels...|
|-||Ah, my beloved husband has no longer his action hero youth.|
|-||Hey, I might give you proof to the contrary later.|
Yeon-Joo starts drawing.
|-||An important thing for tomorrow.|
|-||You'll have to convince Soo-Bin and your publisher to continue the Manhwa.|
|-||Yes, I understand. New scenes will appear.|
|-||Even if the publisher stops the publication, it will continue by itself.|
|-||Right, the situation would be out of control.|
|-||By any means, "Butterfly Girl" must be published officially.|
The clock displays 10:30 am.
Do-Yoon and Soo-Bong are dressed impeccably, in costume.
Yet they are heckling amicably.
Do-Yoon makes a fighting key around Soo-Bong's neck.
|-||Hey, stop, Hyung, that's not fair!|
|-||I don't know this grip!|
|(maintains the grip without forcing, casual)|
|-||Yah ! (Soo-Bong twists Do-Yoon's belly with a fist)|
|-||Ah ah ! Stop getting away with tickling!|
|-||I'll tell you the next time you--|
They realize that Kang Chul was already here and interrupt their heckling.
|(tired and surprised)|
|(fears a serious atmosphere)|
|-||Thank you for everything, Hyung.|
|-||And sorry I can't stay longer.|
|-||That's fine, President.|
|-||Soo-Bong had time to explain everything to me.|
|-||Soo-Bong, let's go.|
Without politeness, Kang Chul grabs Soo-Bong and separates him from Do-Yoon.
|(warm and friendly smile)|
|-||See you soon, Hyung! Take care of--|
His sentence is not finished, FZZT!, they're already teleporting.
KZZT! Kang Chul and Soo-Bong reappear by teleportation.
|-||I feel like I've become an inter-dimensional taxi.|
|-||Oh! (sees Soo-Bong)|
Soo-Bong has gained color, and lost weight. His body shape is more athletic.
|(contemplates his expensive branded suit)|
|-||A gift from Hyung, at "W"'s expense.|
|-||Did it go well?|
Agitated by an overflowing energy, Soo-Bong tells with enthusiasm.
|-||Noona! It was great!|
|~||We lived in the penthouse, the one I created!|
|-||Hyung Seo is fantastic!|
|-||With such a good teacher, I would have started martial arts earlier!|
|-||Every day, we went to the--|
Soo-Bong is interrupted because Kang Chul grabs him by the sleeve.
|-||Follow me. (forces Soo-Bong out of the room)|
|-||But... where are we going?|
Kang Chul drags Soo-Bong out of the house, towards the garden.
Kang Chul and Soo-Bong arrive near a garden shed
Kang Chul opens the shed.
He clicks on a switch inside, and turns on the light in the garden.
He takes out a shovel and a spade and hands it to Soo-Bong.
|-||Yeon-Joo would like to make a vegetable garden there.|
(shows a garden section.)
|-||Just spend your energy turning the soil.|
|-||What? In the middle of the night?|
Without waiting for an answer, Kang Chul leaves Soo-Bong there, pounding and questioning.
Before he is out of sight at the corner of the house, he turns slightly.
|-||Ah! And don't leave this place. We'll need you tomorrow morning.|
Then Kang Chul leaves.
|-||What's wrong with him? Why is he mad at me?|
|-||We haven't seen each other in 3 months, and all he wants is for--|
|(he notices a wooden board placed against the fence)|
|(he plants the shovel and spade and gets closer to the board)|
|-||Direct from left, right hook...|
Laughing, he performs some boxing movements against the board.
Baek Young-Sik looks up.
|-||(whispering) Boss! Get down, you'll get spotted!|
Subjective view of Soo-Bong boxing, in a pair of binoculars.
Lee Sang-Deuk removes the binoculars from under his eyes.
He is standing on a large trash can.
|-||This guy is crazy! Is he gonna stay out all night?|
|-||It makes him laugh, moreover...|
|-||Boss, nothing more will happen. Let's go to sleep!|
Lee Sang-Deuk comes down from the trash can.
|-||Well, the rest of the house is off.|
|-||There is only this oddball who digs holes, or boxes against a board.|
|-||Dressed as if he was going to a gala!|
|-||Is that their watchdog or what?|
|-||He's probably an accomplice. We'll see about that later!|
|-||I'm sleepy. Stay here if you want.|
Me, I'm going to have a rest.
|-||You take the moped and go to my home.|
|-||(hands a sheet of notepads) Bring me back what I wrote on this.|
|-||Oh no, please boss!|
I can't take it anymore. I can't stand up anymore.
|-||You're not gonna quibble.|
If we're stuck here, it's your fault!
|-||Pfff... (lowers his head, reluctantly accepts)|
Ren-Bo is still in the water, dipping her hands in all directions.
She cries and screams.
|-||Soo-Bong! Where are you?|
Park Sin-Moo is next to the shore guardrail.
|-||Ren-Bo, stop it!|
|-||I can't, he's drowning!|
|-||It's been ten minutes! If he drowned, it's too late.|
|-||No, no, no!|
|-||Pity, make sure he didn't drown!|
|-||That's enough, join me!|
|-||In any case, he would have been swept away by the stream.|
|-||What you're doing is useless.|
Ren-Bo calms down, and stays still for a while.
Ren-Bo moves to the shore, purple wings.
Ren-Bo comes out of the water and arrives on the river side of the guardrail.
Park Sin-Moo reaches out to her, to help her overcome the obstacle.
Instead of grabs his hand, FLIP-FLAP!, she jumps over the railing thanks to a short wings flap.
|-||Ren-Bo, how could you--|
But Ren-Bo walks straight ahead, without any will to discuss.
Her eyes are drowned in grief.
|-||Ren-Bo, where are you going?|
|-||Let me walk you home.|
I met some suspicious guys when I arrived.
Arriving near the sports car, Ren-Bo looks sadly at Park Sin-Moo.
|-||Thank you, Oppa.|
|-||... (worried smile)|
Park helps her board the car's rear seat.
Park Sin-Moo's flower bouquet is on the ground, right next to the car.
Climbing into the car, Ren-Bo tramples it, without noticing it.
By sitting in the two back seats, Ren-Bo has enough room for her wings.
She cries, shaken by little hiccups, her breath intersected.
|-||Ren-Bo, please stop crying like that.|
|:||Did he really drown?|
|-||Ren-Bo, I can't stay here.|
|-||You're not gonna leave me here, at least?|
|-||Whatever happens, don't worry about me.|
|:||Maybe he just disappeared, like a magician?|
|:||Yes, he told me not to worry.|
|:||He must have disappeared, as he had appeared, as Fairy Spark...|
|:||Soo-Bong, I hope you're safe...|
|:||Without you, I would have been in big trouble.|
|:||You didn't hesitate to get hurt, to defend me.|
|:||... (annoying thought)|
|:||It wasn't very polite to kiss me like that...|
|-||I hope you won't be too angry...|
Soo-Bong approaches Ren-Bo, grabs both her arms and... kisses her!
|:||... but I don't blame you.|
|:||I'm only asking you for one thing...|
|-||Ren-Bo, who was that guy?|
|-||I don't know...|
|-||You don't know, and you're making a whole scene?|
|-||You can't understand.|
|-||He's after you, isn't he?|
|-||But you still kiss each other?|
|-||I had nothing to do with it!|
Reddish streaks dot Ren-Bo's wings.
|-||So he threatened you? Huh?|
|-||It doesn't make any sense. What you're saying is absurd.|
|-||You find yourself in the river for no reason, kissing a stranger.|
|-||I've been by your side for years, helping you as best I can.|
|-||And overnight, you do anything.|
|-||Shut up! But shut up!|
Ren-Bo's wings are scarlet red.
|-||No, you have to explain yourself!|
|-||Besides, you may be involved in a case with a man's death!|
Bright purple streaks shear through Ren-Bo's red wings.
|-||(shouting) Stop the car!|
KRAAACK! A thunderbolt strikes outside the car and lit up all.
|-||(screaming like a hysteric) STOP THE DAMN CAR RIGHT NOW!!!!!|
|-||... !! (shocked, scared, he brakes immediately)|
Park parks his car near a park. ^^
Ren-Bo gets out of the car and VLAM!, she slams the door violently, then walks away.
RRMMBL! Storm rumble.
Park Sin-Moo also comes out, but stays by his open door.
He limply slams his arm on the roof of the car, sighing heavily.
Ren-Bo walks towards the park adjacent to the river bank.
