In the hunt for clues that Yi-jin might be Min-chae’s father, they all disproved the theories. The biggest mistake is when Min-chae reads her mother’s diaries and has no idea who Yi-jin is.

There is also the additional detail that Min-chae’s surname in twenty-five twenty-one is Kim, not Baek. In the K-drama epilogue scene, fans also noticed that Yi-jin was not wearing a wedding ring. He also wasn’t wearing one when he interviewed Hee-do after congratulating her on her marriage.
