She leaves the gallery after he tells her that this would have not happened if she kept her mouth shut. Later, Deok-Mi goes back to her parent’s house to calm the things down after their fight. She ends up taking her anger out on her mother. Next day, things are not going well at the gallery when her colleagues come to seek her for help. Then one of her colleagues, Kyung-A, tells Ryan to cancel the termination of Deok-Mi because Kyung-A told about the cancellation to So-Hye.
