After realizing that everything that Rembrary had told her as Woo Yeon Woo is true, Kim Dal decided to help him conceal his true identity. Kim Dal thought that if Rembrary’s secret gets out, Wild Animal’s career will come to an end. As Woo Yeon Woo’s biggest fan, she couldn’t let that happen.

Kim Dal takes extra measures to keep Rembrary’s divine identity hidden. She suggests him to refrain from using his powers to heal people and try to act more like Woo Yeon Woo.

Specifically, she showed him video clips of Woo Yeon Woo doing fan service and aegyo. Rembrary refused to imitate the actions, but still tried his best when the group did a live broadcast to refrain the public from talking about Kasy’s dating scandal.
