Soo-Jeong confronts Myun-Ho and finds out that Se-Ho was the one who returned her the money that she lost through the scam. She goes to Se-Ho and calls his selfish jerk for his acts, Se-Ho tells her that he gave her money because he saw her struggling. He further tells her that in the past he was the one who told their class that Soo-Jeong was poor. Even though Bok-Su knew about it as well he never told her, she slaps him and gets furious with him. Se-Ho than shows her the photographs of her and Bok-Su together, he tells her that she should break-up with him if she wants to protect him.
Se-Ho plans to bring down his mother and while she plans to bring him down (Loving Family). Soo-Jeong starts to keep avoiding Bok-Su in order to “protect” him. Bok-Su goes to her house, she wants to break-up with him. He knows that she is trying to protect him, he tells her that he will leave the school. She tells him that if he does that than Mr.Park’s sacrifice will go in vain. They “break-up” in order to be happier in the future.

Soo-Jeong feeling guilty returns Se-Ho his money and tells him to keep her name in the list of corrupted teachers. Elsewhere, Bok-Su is planning to reveal all the information he has got on the corruption in the school. Soo-Jeong tells him that she will be the witness and evidence in relation to the hiring of employees with bribery.
Well, everything is out in the open now, all that’s left is a head-on confrontation. The triple fight between Bok-Su, Se-Ho and Se-Ho’s mother is coming up. I think Bok-Su and Se-Ho will join hands to beat Se-Ho’s mother. This may re-ignite the flames of friendship between them. I still see a happy ending for Se-Ho even after every douche thing he has done.
On the side note, anyone else bothered by the rough skin of Se-Ho and Kyung-Hyun? What’s worse is that I am hating myself for letting this bother me. I mean the looks of a character have become more important than the character itself. So it is time for some self-reflection and to clear my mind of these “evil” thoughts.
