The couple takes off to a round of cheers, and Ki-tae scans the wedding party still looking for Jang-mi. Yeo-reum is the first to find her, and he thinks back to the other night when Jang-mi presented him with an envelope of money. She apologizes for dreaming an impossible dream and hurting everyone around her, including Yeo-reum.
Listen to your noona. She tells him she has her own future to worry about, and leaves him standing in the street holding the envelope. Back in the present he finds her standing in a daze, and she finally comes to and says that she tried to send someone off coolly this time, but ended up making another mess.
She takes her resume all over town and meets rejection after rejection from other boutiques and department stores. She threatens to shut him down with her power-blogger prowess, and he throws her out to go try.
Hyun-hee sits down with Ki-tae and notes bitterly that he seems fine after leaving Jang-mi in that state, and he counters that Jang-mi is the one ignoring him. He thinks she changed her number and quit her job to avoid him, but Hyun-hee corrects him—she was fired because of his mall-brawling mother, and her parents are getting a divorce.
Jang-mi finally tells Mom about being fired and goes to run the chicken shop on her own. It mostly consists of standing in front of the fryer swatting at flies, and she reaches for a bottle of soju. He says he heard about her job and her parents, and wants to help compensate because he feels responsible. You would try to take care of it with money. Tell her you love her, you fool! He gets up dejectedly to leave, and lingers to watch her just a little longer.
The rumors spread, and soon his clinic has no patients. Aunt wonders if the family should step in, but Mom says he wants to live his own life and refuses to intervene. He sits outside her chicken shop watching her swat at flies, with the most ridiculously smitten expression on his face.
He calls the shop and plugs his nose to disguise his voice, and fumbles to stay anonymous as he orders ten chickens for delivery to a nearby park. She packs them up happily and a man on a bench claims to have ordered the chickens. She counts her money cheerily before riding away, and Ki-tae pokes his head out from behind a tree, pleased with himself. He then stuffs himself with chicken at home, and then the next day he calls again with the same order. The same accomplice pays for the chicken in the park, and hands Jang-mi a drink: Jang-mi meets Yeo-reum for a drink and savors the shot of soju immensely, sighing that she was trying to quit drinking so that she could focus on finding herself.
Yeo-reum argues that life is more fun when you let yourself expect things, and that she was better when she cared and always went overboard. He piques her interest when he asks if they ought to help Ki-tae without him knowing. Jang-mi and Yeo-reum wait at a coffee shop to do the same, and Jang-mi worries that his entire plan seems to be to charm the blogger into recanting. She says she feels bad about bringing him into this, but he sets her straight: I like him a LOT too!
He falters a little when she prods and he says he might, but he quickly takes it back. She says that Ki-tae is going to sue her, and passes over an envelope of money for her mental suffering. The blogger reaches up to strike her, and Se-ah grabs her wrist and asks if she should go online and call her a plastic surgery addict monster.
Jang-mi and Yeo-reum run over to make sure Se-ah is okay, and she tells them to stop the blogger from getting away. Jang-mi goes after her and manages to overtake the car on a bike, and is shocked to find her sobbing at the wheel. Jang-mi hands her a tissue and asks if she wants to grab a drink.
They relocate to the chicken shop, where Jang-mi listens to her story and takes her side. But of course she arrives just in time to see her drinking with the blogger and cheering that Ki-tae got what he deserved.
Oh noes, now she thinks Jang-mi was in on it! Jang-mi stops cold when she sees Mom standing in the doorway and runs out after her to try and explain. She says that she had high expectations for Jang-mi, which is why her disappointment was so big as well. She accuses Jang-mi of plotting revenge, and wonders if what she wanted all this time was money. Jang-mi watches her go and remembers all the times everyone around her assumed she was marrying Ki-tae for money.
She says that she saw Jang-mi plotting with that blogger with her own eyes, and Ki-tae suddenly bolts to attention. Jang-mi and Yeo-reum haul the drunk blogger into her car and Yeo-reum drives her home.
He remembers now saying the same thing to Jang-mi about Hoon-dong before she doused his face in juice, and how she cried that for her it was love. This time, he points out that she was the one who pushed him away toward someone else, and chides her for continuing to interfere in his life enough to be misunderstood by his mother.
How much more will you get hurt because of me?! How much more will you cry because of me?! He takes a step forward to wrap her up in a hug, and they each break out in the sweetest smiles of relief. He wipes away her tears and leans in for a kiss, and I love the way they both pull each other just a little closer as they kiss. They walk up to his apartment afterwards, and Ki-tae adorably fidgets trying to hold her hand but punking out every time they get close.
She smiles a little at that, pleased that he seemed to be waiting for her. She admits that she did come to his door once but turned back, and he lights up and successfully holds her hand. She tells him to hurry up and shower right now, and his mind instantly goes to a naughty place.
Hahahaha, we actually watch him reach down to wash every nook and cranny! She tells him to hurry up and get a move on, so he throws her onto the couch and lands on top of her with puckered lips. But sadly, sexy times is not what she had on the agenda Why?
Why was it not? He pouts at first, but they manage to find their own way of incorporating skinship into the cleaning routine, and piggyback each other around the apartment as they make the place good as new. He jumps up to open a bottle, and she says she wants to say something before they get started.
She hems and haws, until he pops the cork open, and she finally comes out with it. She asks if they can keep things cool between them: Ki-tae stares back at her, thunderstruck.
