Bok-Su drops her home and gives her a kiss on the cheek, Se-Ho sees them and gets enraged with jealousy. He feels he is again a step behind Bok-Su when it comes to Soo-Jeong.

Uncle and nephew are awkward on their return to school now that everyone knows about their relationship. Se-Ho calls out Soo-Jeon, he again tries to confess to her. She turns him down, he sees the ring and understands it is because of Bok-Su. He doesn’t understand why she likes crappy Bok-Su and not him. Soo-Jeong tells him he should know it better as he used to like Bok-Su as well. She further tells him not to bother Bok-Su anymore as he has already suffered too much because of both of them. Se-Ho broken hearted goes to the home, his mother knows it is because of Soo-Jeong. Se-Ho stands up to his mother and tells her to leave Soo-Jeong alone. Her mother is really angry with his attitude, he tells her he will destroy on his own if he can’t get her.
All ‘Cos of You
Se-Ho calls someone to proceed with something, next day fraud Myung-Ho is appointed back to his position. Soo-Jeong is not happy to see him back again, she confronts him but gets dejected. Bok-Su charges to Se-ho and asks him why he brought Myung-Ho back knowing full well what he did to Soo-Jeong. Se-Ho tells him he should more worry about what will happen if parents find out about a teacher dating her student. Bok-Su laughs at him and tells Se-Ho that if he expels him than there will be no reason to hide his relationship with Soo-Jeong. Furthermore, she will never have to see Se-Ho again. Bok-Su further asks him what wrong did he do to Se-Ho. Se-Ho replies that because of Bok-Su his life became miserable.
The official start of the relationship between Bok-Su and Soo-Jeong. You can also say it the start of a war between Soo-Jeong and Se-Ho. The pacing of the storyline seems a bit slow, things are happening on the screen but nothing actual meaningful advances in the storyline. I guess that is because of the length of the series and it mostly happens during the mid-way of all the Korean mini-series. I hope the story picks up the pace in upcoming episodes. I could be feeling this way about the pace because I saw the thrilling first episode of The Crowned Clown.
