I've been suspicious of that "accident" for some time now. Especially when Ji-eun's dad's right-hand guy showed up at his enemy's company. I've been thinking it odd that he died right around the time his company was in such trouble. That filthy buzzard. Then he befriends her just to keep an eye on her. Euch.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
And I finally figured out why Ji-eun keeps saying the time for their love is over. Although it's obvious that her belief that she is responsible for her father's death is the reason, it wasn't until I realized that the accident wasn't her fault--and was more like a "hit" that, if it hadn't happened then, would have been accomplished later just the same--that I also realized how seriously she took that responsibility. Even though she seems extremely uninterested in Se-hoon (not at all the pining, I'm-still-in-love-with-you-but-it-cannot-be I expected), she's probably been completely turned off because she thinks she killed her father. So she wants nothing to do with revisiting any circumstances that would have contributed to that, beginning with any involvement with SH. I guess when it comes out that it really wasn't her fault at all, she will begin to rediscover her feelings for him.

I like how this part of the history of Ji-Eun's father's death is unfolding. I thought it was interesting that Ji-eun said to Will that they could not get back together because she had "already nailed her mother's heart" once by being with Will ten years ago. Ji-Eun must feel now that because of her relationship with Will, her father was killed and therefore, Ji-Eun has made herself responsible for making her mother a widow, eliminating the family's breadwinner, taking away her sister's father, etc. etc. I'm sure that Ji-Eun's mother plays an active role in encouraging Ji-Eun's feelings of unending self- blame, guilt and responsiblity. J-E's mother has always been only interested in wealth (and herself!). Her mother would actually regain some family wealth & position if she would just encourage J-E to reunite with Will, but it's too easy to wallow in bitterness and contempt for Will. The mother plays a stronger role in this story than I had seen previously. (Maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention?! : Now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the accident truth which was revealed in Episode 15. It will be interesting to see how this all shakes down, especially with Eric's father being such an evil character. ... And his wife/mistress is some piece of work, too!!! Her big, fake smile just makes me want to gag!
