Jong-nam used to work in a restaurant as a waitress, I think. And Suk-hyun had just come from the States and was having a dinner party with his friends. Jong-nam served food to them, but she didn't really talk with Suk-hyun. Although she did give him like a glance as if she thought he was good-looking. When JN was leaving work, she found drunk Suk-hyun half-passed out in the corner. She couldn't just leave him there so she got him a taxi cab and went with him. I think he was really tired and kept leaning his head on her shoulder twice, but she kept pushing him aside. I don't really remember the rest of what happened. I think his name is "Mr. Pee" because he peed in his pants over something...I didn't see this part.
She was carrying him on her back when he peed on her. He didn't have his wallet, so she didn't know where to take him (no address), so she got a hotel room. She had to pay for the room and for dry cleaning their clothes, so she insisted that he give her his watch as security until he paid her back.
Jong-nam is struggling to carry him. If you listen close, you can hear running water. The semi-concious Suk-hyun looks relieved; Jong-nam looks alarmed. She then rolls her eyes and says the Korean equivalent of "Ah, Geez . . ."

I think it was a bar more than a restaurant and JN was living there for awhile after her roommate kicked her out. When she got SH to the hotel room she had to send their clothes out to be cleaned (because of the pee lol). When he woke up she demanded to be reimbursed and he assumed she was a prostitute and she got very upset. They went to a cash station but he couldn't get any money so he gave her his watch and promised to bring the money back to the bar that night. He never showed (I forgot why) but it was discovered she was living in the storeroom and she got fired. She took all of her savings out to put a down payment on a small apartment but while she was trying to sleep on a park bench, her bag was stolen. All her money, along with his watch, was now gone. She went to apply for a job at SH's aunts restaurant (she knew the deceased son somehow but that was never explored fully). The aunt allowed her to stay in the apartment in her dead son's room. They got closer and eventually she adopted JN. There were several explosive incidents between JN and SH involving the money he owed her. She ended up replacing his expensive watch (later we found out it was a fake). Initially they pretty much hated each other but the aunt (now JN's mom) arranged for the two to be together a few times to help them get along and they slowly started to like each other. Now that SH knows he was adopted, he feels an even stronget empathy for JN (who is an orphan).
. . . he gave her his watch and promised to bring the money back to the bar that night. He never showed (I forgot why) but it was discovered she was living in the storeroom and she got fired.
Suk-hyun showed up late, due to a (very unconvincing) car accident. When he gets to the bar, the door is locked, an Jong-nam can't hear him because she is having her own wild party. The next morning, the bar owner sees that Jong-nam has trashed the bar, so she got fired.
