He explains that since it was not yet her time to die, she is given the chance to recover from her comatose state and live again. Nevertheless, after meeting the troublesome day traveler Shin Ji-hyun, his perspective has changed; he even violated a few rules pertaining to his duty as a grim reaper to help her myriads of times. The offer is contingent, however, on the completion of a mission: Ji-hyun must gather three teardrops shed out of pure love by three people not related to her by blood within the next 49 days. A beautiful, pampered yet kind bride-to-be. However, her altruistic image as the 'caring and trustworthy best friend' veils the envy and deep resentment she harbors against Ji-hyun and her family. She then finds herself in the body of the suicidal Yi-kyung for which she will remain for the duration of her quest. When Ji-hyun desperately prays to God to save her, her tear necklace attains Han Kang's tear.
