Chan Sung helped another ghost – a blind woman who was hit by a motorcycle and only remembered the touch of the driver’s hand. Chan Sung likes his work so far, but Man Wol is not happy because the tree, which has been dead for years, sprouted leaves when Chan Sung touched it. Man Wol planned to get rid of Chan Sung by sending him to Room 13, but she, later on, saved him and kissed him.

The grim reaper gave Man Wol a task to take a sick child who should’ve died 3 years ago but was given lifelines by his parents. They were able to take the child.

Hotel Staff Ms. Choi worked for 200 years in the Hotel while waiting for a family line to end. She thought it ended when the last son came to the Hotel, but it turned out that the man’s girlfriend was pregnant, which means Ms. Choi can’t leave for the afterlife yet.

The Hotel Receptionist, Ji Hyun Joong, also resolved his grudge – it was revealed that the man who killed him before was the same man that’s taking care of his sister and pretending to be him.
The wine is ready to be drunk by the new owner. Yuna (the intern) stole it so Man Wol could drink it and stay In the Hotel.

After she talked to the woman carrying the last child of the family she’s waiting on. Last to go was Man Wol, who decided not to drink the wine and leave for the afterlife.
Hotel Del Luna closed. Chan Sung met Man Wol again in a park (although it is not clear if this is his imagination or Man Wol’s 2nd life). The deity gathered again and announced that the Hotel would open again – this time, it is named Hotel Blue Moon, owned by a young man.
