He still wants revenge even after hearing about how the heroine's mother stole and abandoned the daughter. His plan: get engaged to him because his father left the family to run away with his mistress. The whole family put their expectations of running the business on the hero and while the hero did a great job, the grandfather thought he wasn't ready due to being single and still young.

The heroine agrees and they act the happy couple. It's then revealed the mistress was the heroine's mother and the hero was told by his mother to get revenge on them both.

When the hero and grandfather are alone, the grandfather says that he knows the heroine's background, he'll hand the reins of the family's empire to him, and the only thing he wants for the hero is to be happy. The hero asks him what is happiness, which the grandfather responds that it was something he hasn't taught him yet. Well, shoot you idiot! You should have taught from when he was a kid, so he could learn to figure it out for himself. The heroine opens up to the heroine about her fears of having nothing but the piano in her life and is afraid of disappearing if it disappears from her.The hero encourages her to think of things she wanted to do but was never allowed to do because of her mother.

The hero is affected by the power within the music that he realizes the cruelty he is doing to the heroine by using her when she has suffered like him. They hold each other garden of roses but one thorn has wedged himself under the skin. The hero's father pops up and reveals the hero's plan for revenge and it was never a partner deal but he was using the heroine as a tool to get revenge on her mother. The heroine is heartbroken over being used yet again and runs away from the hero. Two weeks later, the heroine is a barrista when the hero finds her again. The hero states that he found the mother who's living a happy married life with a family. The heroine lets her anger go and doesn't ever want to see the mother again. The two realize they are the same with parents who have hurt them and stolen their childhoods of happy things and filled it with sad memories.
