Meanwhile, at the company, Jane's father Yoon Il-Goo (Ahn Nae-Sang) receives an unexpected visit from his friend District Attorney Oh (No Kyung-Joo). D.A. Oh mentions that his trading company is under investigation because of slush funds. Yoon Il-Goo begins to suspect his friend, company vice president Seo Jae-Myung (Son Chang-Min). On the way to Jane's birthday party, Yong Il-Goo tells Seo Jae-Myung to go to the district attorney's office. Seo Jae-Myung refuses and reaches for the car door handle. While they are struggling, the car becomes involved in an accident and falls over into a nearby body of water. The car is completely submerge in water and Seo Jae-Myug grabs a body and swims to land. Once he makes it out of the water he realizes that the man he pulled out of the car was the chauffer Kim In-Bae (Lee Gi-Yeong) and not company president Yoon-Il Goo.
At Jane's birthday party, a baseball game is organized. Young-Gwang never played baseball before, but because of In-Woo's cocky behavior takes part in the game. During the game Young-Gwang hits a home run. He then signs his name on the baseball and gives it to Jane. He also asks her to marry him one day. At this time Jane's mother receives a phone call from the hospital. Jane's mother takes Jane and drives off to the hospital. Because of heavy rains, Jane's mother gets into a car accident. Rescuers found Jane's mom unconcsious, but couldn't find Jane. Jane was thrown out of the car and loses her memory in the process.
At the hospital, vice president Seo Jae-Myung is questioned by the district attorney. At this time the chauffeur lies and says the cause of the accident was heavy rain. Vice president Seo Jae-Myung then hears the news of the car accident involving Jane and her mother. The police then calls vice president Seo Jae-Myung and informs him that a girl matching the description of Jane was found, but she has no memory of who she is. Seo Jae-Myung instructs the chauffeur to go pick up Jane and take her to a place where nobody will know. He promises that he does this, he will help to open a restaurant and take care of his children for life.
Because of the accident Jane can't remember even her own name, but she does find a baseball with the words "Young-Gwang's first home run" on it in her bag. Soon after, vice president Seo Jae-Myung takes the position of company president. The chauffer takes Jane to a distant orphanage and drops her off. Out of guilt, the chauffer tells her that her name is Jane and don't forget her name.
Years later, Young-Gwang and In-Woo both become professional baseball players. In-Woo is the cleanup hitter for a major league team, while Young-Gwang is demoted to the minor leagues due to his poort hitting. The coach of the minor league team warns Young-Gwang that he has only 2 months to raise his batting average above .200 or he will be kicked off the team.
One day, Young-Gwang and In-Woo are injured in different games and brought to the same hospital at almost the same time. In-Woo recieves all the attention, while Young-Gwang is largely ignored.
