Soo-Jeong wants to be the witness to the school corruption. Bok-Su is against her being the witness because it will mean the end of her career as a teacher. Soo-Jeong, on the other hand, wants to become a better person although she was not a good teacher. Bok-Su unable to deny her wish agrees to her becoming a witness. Bok-Su shows all the evidence in the school corruption to her, he then walks his “ex-girlfriend” home. Chae-Min from the IVY class is under a lot of pressure to get the first position in the exams from his mother and the school as well.

Bok-Su and his team make the final preparations for his revenge. Bok-Su releases a video showing all the evidence in the school corruption. The students are in an uproar, media picks up the news as well. The video shows the evidence into donation, selling of exam papers and school giving extra “benefits” to the rich kids, among other things. Soo-Jeong appears as a whistleblower (her identity is hidden), she agrees to reveal her identity if an official investigation takes place. Se-Ho’s mother orders the principal to take the blame for everything, he is not that agreeable with her. Elsewhere, Chae-Min’s mother forces him to go to school and act as it was not him, he doesn’t want to go to school and face his peers. The school is getting a lot of complaints from everywhere. The teachers who paid to get the job are also getting restless with the news.
Back To the past
Chae-Min goes to the school, his classmates start talking about him being brazen. A press conference takes place in the school auditorium, the principal takes the blames and resigns from his position. Se-Ho’s mother also blames the current chairman (Se-Ho) for all this and announces that he will resign from his position as well. Se-Ho and his mother get in an argument, he is saddened by her behavior. She tells him that she extremely despises him and weak human beings like him. Se-Ho gets totally broken hear by her words, Soo-Jeong and Bok-Su overhear their conversation. Elsewhere, Chae-Min is blamed by his classmate and they get into a fight. He runs to the roof to jump, he is followed by Soo-Jeong, Bok-Su, and Se-Ho. Se-Ho is reminded of his past, he tells Chae-Min to just jump and kill himself.
Se-Ho’s mother is able to come top again after crushing her son’s heart. Although her time is coming to end as the series gets closer to its finale. I would be really disappointed if she just becomes a loving mother in the end and gets forgiven by Se-Ho. I just hate the types of parents who care more about what society thinks and destroying their kids live in the process. When that kid becomes what whom whole society dislike then those same parents blame the society or the kid. I really hope shows like this and SKY Castle will open the eyes of these parents.
Moving on I didn’t see much difference in the relationship between Soo-Jeong and Bok-Su after their “break-up”. On the contrary, they look more close to each other now than before (emotionally). We also finally got the revenge that has been build up from the last 12 episodes.
