The ending of the previous episode showed Son Oh Gong (Lee Seung Gi) and Jin Sun Mi (Oh Yeon Seo) confirming their feelings for each other. However, the ending also marked the appearance of Ah Sa Nyeo (Lee Se Young) as she attempts to seduce Son Oh Gong and disrupt the love between him and Jin Sun Mi. Ah Sa Nyeo decides she wants to meet a man who will protect her until the end, and consequently makes plans to seduce Son Oh Gong and make him her own. Once she is alone with Son Oh Gong, Ah Sa Nyeo does her best to seduce him, and Son Oh Gong appears to be possessed as a result.
The released images preview a pivotal moment from episode 13. Lee Se Young sits in Lee Seung Gi’s lap as she embraces him, raising curiosity over what will happen between the two. Lee Seung Gi appears to have been captured by Lee Se Young’s seduction as he stares ahead expressionless. Many are interested to see if Son Oh Gong will be able to break free from Ah Sa Nyeo’s seduction, and what will happen to his romance with Jin Sun Mi.
Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young reportedly could not stop laughing on set while filming this particular scene. Lee Se Young had shown a close sibling-like relationship with Lee Seung Gi before during her portrayed of the zombie Jin Bu Ja, but now, with their characters having a completely new dynamic, awkward laughter ensued. However, Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young showed their professionalism, smoothly getting into character once the cameras started rolling.
