Synopsis Heartbeat Episode 13
After seeing Woo-hyeol nearly bite In-hae, Do-sik decides to intervene and stop Woo-hyeol from getting close to her. Do-sik becomes fed up with Woo-hyeol’s presence and tells him to leave their lives.
Do-sik also warns In-hae to stay away from Woo-hyeol, but she refuses. This angers Do-sik, who insists In-hae should be reasonable. He argues that as a vampire, Woo-hyeol could seriously hurt In-hae if they stay together.
But In-hae remains defiant despite Do-sik’s demands and warnings. Do-sik is frustrated that In-hae won’t listen to him. The conflict escalates over Do-sik trying to protect In-hae by separating her and Woo-hyeol, while In-hae continues rebelling to be with Woo-hyeol regardless of the danger.
In contrast to Do-sik’s perspective, In-hae has fallen deeply in love with Woo-hyeol and wants to follow her heart.
In the previous episode, In-hae insisted to Do-sik that Woo-hyeol is not dangerous. She feels that she understands Woo-hyeol well enough to know he won’t actually harm her.
This bond with and trust in Woo-hyeol is why In-hae remains determined to stay by his side and not abandon him, despite Do-sik’s continued warnings and demands.
In-hae is prioritizing her feelings and intuition regarding Woo-hyeol over Do-sik’s concerns for her safety. This conflict of perspectives further fuels the tensions between In-hae and Do-sik over her relationship with Woo-hyeol.
Attract Investment To Disturb
Like Do-sik, Hae-won strongly disapproves of the romance brewing between Woo-heal and In-hae.
In the previous episode, Hae-won had threatened In-hae to stay away from Woo-hyeol, but she refused.
It seems Hae-won’s plan to attract investors to the Shaded Oasis resort is actually intended to interfere with and upset In-hae and Woo-hyeol’s relationship.
By pushing the resort development, Hae-won is looking for additional ways to come between In-hae and Woo-hyeol beyond just warnings and threats. His schemes add further tension as he tries to break them apart.
Woo Hyeol’s Preparation To Leave In Hae
Woo-hyeol decides to leave In-hae, as he couldn’t forgive himself if he lost control of his vampire urges and hurt her.
Before leaving, he first locates In-hae’s father to ensure she won’t be alone.
Meanwhile, Do-sik assigns Man-hwi the mission of capturing Woo-hyeol alive. Man-hwi succeeds, bringing Woo-hyeol to the basement of his house where he imprisons prey.
So Woo-hyeol ends up locked up by Man-hwi per Do-sik’s orders. His attempt to protect In-hae by leaving has been derailed by being made Man-hwi’s captive. This adds further complication and jeopardy as the factions clash over Woo-hyeol and In-hae’s forbidden romance.
