Confession (고백, Gobaek) is chapter 40 of the Twelve Nights webtoon.
The chief state councilor tells King Jin Won that he suspects the left minister as a spy among the advisors. The king orders him to investigate him further to find evidence that can prove their suspicion. Furthermore, Ja Gyeom informs the king of Ma Mi Song's meeting with him that morning and forged a deal with him. The physician requested for royal clinics to be established in exchange for divulging the location of the rebel army. The king approves this and, before the chief state councilor leaves, asks about the condition of his daughter. Not wanting to stain her reputation amid the approaching bridal selection, Ja Gyeom lies about Dan Ah's condition.
Seon Woo immediately heads to Yu Hyang Ru to inform them of the imminent decree of the king, but he is being tailed by Baek Ah, who finds the left minister suspicious. Meanwhile, three royal guards conspicuously tail Won as he goes to see Dan Ah.
Dan Ah meets Won and cries at his good condition, though she herself needs a walking stick due to her leg injury. Won asks Dan Ah for any request, thinking that he is responsible for her injury. She tells him that she wants to go somewhere with him. Along the way, Dan Ah struggles walking, so Won piggybacks her as she confesses that she likes him.
