How Does Sang Su React To Su Yeong’s Scandalous News?
Kyung Pil told Su Yeong his story of how he slept with his ex-girlfriend’s best friend because he needed to break up with her but couldn’t bring himself to do it. He decided to make an unforgivable mistake purposely. Su Yeong needed to cut off Sang Su from her life as well, so she asked Kyung Pil for help. Kyung Pil agreed to it because he couldn’t see Mi Gyeong, his first love, being sad. They didn’t really sleep together and only wanted to let Sang Su think they had. However, Jeong called Su Yeong and found out that she was with Kyug Pil. Jeong is deeply hurt and thinks that it is his fault that Su Yeong cheated on him. He also apologizes to Su Yeong later for making a scene at the bank, but he realizes that what’s happened can’t be turned back. Sang Su is devastated as well, and he is not ready to believe that Su Yeong could really do something like that. He goes to her parents’ restaurant, and her father immediately recognizes that Sang Su is going through a tough time and as their conversation proceeds, Sang Su reveals to him that he likes Su Yeong.

At the same time, Sang Su is also at the headquarters for training and gets in a feud with Kim when he hears him badmouthing Su Yeong. He runs into Su Yeong while returning, and Su Yeong confronts him on why he isn’t asking her any questions about what happened, to which he replies that he just doesn’t believe that it is true and he still likes her.

Mi Gyeong doesn’t want to go back to her home, so she asks Sang Su to take her to his place. Sang Su understands that Mi Gyeong is stressed because of the ongoing situation, and he apologizes to her. He tells her that it was selfish of him to agree to date her even when he wasn’t into her. He just wanted a distraction, and the current situation is completely his fault. Sang Su starts crying in front of her, and Mi Gyeong leaves right away. Sang Su asks Mi Gyeong not to hurt herself because of him. Sang Su is a sensitive person, and it hurts him to see someone else getting hurt because of him.

Moreover, she faces a big revelation when her cousin visits her at the sub-branch and sees Kyung Pil. He tells her that he told Kyung Pil to break up with her, and she finds out that Kyung Pil never told her about it. Su Yeong takes a day off, so Sang Su goes to her place to check up on her and finds out that she is running a high fever and has slept the whole day. He buys meds for her, stays by her side the entire night, and even cooks her breakfast in the morning before leaving.
The next day brings good news to Su Yeong with the new personnel change announcement. Su Yeong finally gets the position transfer that she has wanted for years.

She goes on a long drive with Sang Su and takes him to the place where she asked him out. She is finally ready to let him go and breaks up with him, even though it still hurts her. Sang Su feels a little at ease, and he goes on a date with Su Yeong at the same restaurant where they were supposed to meet on their second date, if Sang Su hadn’t hesitated.
