There are several parallels in Chil Bong's scenes and in Sseu Re Ki's scenes. It is impossible not to make any comparison because they are in more or less similar situations but they are acting or reacting differently. What do these parallels mean, if these parallels are in any way significant to the drama's narrative?

Sung Na Jung: Sometimes there are moments when I really feel like there is a God. Even if there isn’t, there are times I feel like there has to at least be a something like fate to explain certain situations. This exquisite coincidence, this unbelievable timing, this ingenious reversal -- it’s possible that my fate is playing a game with me.
Kim Jae Joon, also known Sseu Re Ki: Fate is damned. Fate is cruel. And fate is strong. Fate throws us into dilemmas, traps us in corners where we can’t do a thing, and in the bitter end, even ignores our sincere prayers. That’s how fate is cruel and strong.
Kim Seon Joon, also known as Chil Bong: Another reason why fate is cruel and strong: timing you can’t predict. This is how fate is cruel.

In this drama world...

What does fate mean?
Who has fate on their side? Who has fate against them?

What does timing mean?
Who has right timing? Who has wrong timing?

How did fate and timing affect their lives?!
