This series endeavors to provide new hopes for tomorrow to housewives in despair.
Song Mi-ju (Yoo, Ho-jeong) – Dentist. Divorced but cute. Queen of breaking the rules
Possesses uncommon self-will and stubbornness, combined with the flexibility to ignore what other people say. Being hearty, kind and honest, and never a person to carry a grudge, she is ‘coolness’ itself. Hot-tempered but has a soft heart, and cannot endure injustice.
At the tender age of 20 she marries her first love Jeong Seok. At 23, she gives birth to a son who looks exactly like him. But at age 29, her husband falls for the dentist he visited to pull out a wisdom tooth, and is ditched along with the rotten tooth. She then leaves for the United States with her son, where she takes on any job she can find to make ends meet. She endures all sorts of difficulties to finally become a dentist.
If you ask her the reason for her newfound profession, her response is always “No comment!”
During the ten years of living alone, she had to take care of all kinds of household chores such as changing light bulbs, fixing the pipes, mending fences, and repairing electronic products, allowing her to master skills comparable to that of female MacGyver. However, there’s much to be said about her cooking, and as for cleaning, she feels uneasy if the house is too clean.
Raising her young son alone, she has forgotten how to cry, and has developed a nerve that is not to easily deterred. She has acquired her own way of living alone such as jogging to release stress and drinking wine to solve sleepless nights. But she cannot seem to cure the pent-up rage she feels for Jeong Seok that flares up suddenly.
One day, her sixteen-year old son declares his independence, and she climbs on the airplane headed back to Korea. Her goal? To take revenge on Jeong Seok!
She approaches Jeong Seok’s new wife, and manages to get herself scouted to her hospital. She even moves into the house next-door to her ex demonstrating a carefully planned scheme for her revenge.
However, because of her easy character, Mi-ju can’t stop herself from making stupid mistakes, and being an affectionate person, she could never be cruel. On top of that she meets this picky guy nicknamed Rookie, who stimulates her compassion that cannot bare to see others go hungry even when her own plate is empty. Plotting revenge on Jeong Seok, and quarrelling with Rookie, Mi-ju’s life has certainly become hectic.
The wound Jeong Seok’s infidelity has inflicted on her was not the label of being a divorced woman, but the wall she has built around her heart that prevents her from loving another man lest she be hurt again. The love battle with Rookie, which brings down this wall, is ever so noisy. Eye for an eye! Tooth for a tooth! That’s what she declares to her ex, but she ends up protecting his second marriage. Song Mi-ju, she is too cute to be 39 years old!
Ko Sang-mi (Sa Kang) – Dedicated, full-time housewife with a dual mask. Queen of feigning innocence!
On the outside she is packaged as the perfect wife possessing grace, charms and affection while excelling in housework, and assisting her husband. But when you look closer, being a natural empty-headed beauty, she is treated like a maid by her husband.
In school, she had no talent for studies but firmly believing that ‘the girl with good grades can never stand up against the girl with good looks, and the girl with gook looks can never stand up against the girl with good fortune’, she worked hard to take care of her appearance to become that ‘girl with good looks’.
Fortunately, thanks to her attractive appearance, the first year that she moved to Seoul City, she meets Ji-hwan while working part-time as a party planner for a catering company. She marries Ji-hwan, and becomes ‘the girl with good fortune’ envied by people around her.
In a flash Sang-mi has climbed up the social ladder through the marriage she dreamed of. Her heart ached when she thought about her parents in the country who have stopped all contacts with her, only praying for their daughter’s happiness. So she tries hard to be content, telling herself she has realized her dreams of living as a good wife
Now, small lies such as lying about her education has become second nature to her, but her inferiority complex she feels towards her husband because of differences in their education and cultural background always makes her anxious that her ignorance will be revealed.
Did someone say good cooks keep their husband’s heart? Well, wearing a white apron, she wanted to become a pioneer who will lead her tired husband to the dining table, but instead she is living as a well-trained housemaid. As time passes, there is hardly any communication with her husband, let alone any sex, and her secret worries that she can’t share with anyone just becomes bigger and bigger. She has long passed using housework, interior decorating, cooking and cleaning as a way of releasing stress. Now she has become addicted to internet card playing, on-line chatting, stealing and even alcohol, displaying near-professional skills in all these areas.
Sang-mi insists she naturally does not gain weight no matter how much she eats. But her secret diet know-how is gorging herself with food and throwing up. She has symptoms of depression but maintains her outer appearance of a happy housewife, living the life of ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”.
She loves children, so she sometimes looks after Eun-yeong’s daughter, Hana, passionately desiring to have a child of her own. However, even though she has been married for eight years, she is still childless, making her feel even more inadequate. As years pass, her urgency for a child grows stronger, but her husband is not at all co-operative making her suspect that he is having an affair.
Her mother-in-law adds to her stress of infertility by bringing her oriental medicine and making her try out all sorts of folk remedies. And there is her sister-in-law who subtly looks down on her. They all make her feel even more suffocated.
Having no one to empty her heart out to, she feels she will die of suffocation. Every time she feels like this, she runs to fortunetellers to gain solace. Blindly depending on these fortunetellers, she wastes all her money on paying for charms such as one for getting pregnant, one for preventing her husband’s infidelity and so on.
Then her mother-in-law finds out about her alcohol dependency and on-line chatting, and she is pushed to the point of being divorced. But thanks to her friendship with Mi-ju who understands her position better than anyone else, she realizes the emptiness of her life focused on feigning happiness.
Thanks to her unexpected pregnancy, the situation overturns, but her heart struggles between divorce and finding herself. She chooses to pursue life that will allow her to become happy, not a life that looks happy to others, and decides to protect her marriage.
Yang Da-rim (Oh Ju-eun) – Majored in cello. Presently unemployed. Master of attracting men. Queen of eye-pitching! (‘Eye-pitching’ is a skill for attracting men. When you raise one eye slightly, men will kneel right before you)
She packages herself with an air of innocence and gingerly way of talking, but her true self is that of narcissism centered on conceit, looking pretty and acting like the ‘new generation’.
Lying comes so natural to her that at times she can’t distinguish between her lies and truths. Just like an eight-color bird, she combines qualities of innocence, sexual appeal and certain cuteness making her a master of attracting men.
She pretends to be the ultimate realist, but the truth is that she is like any other woman dreaming of true romance.
Since she dispises women who undergo plastic surgery, she has never put a knife to her face, but she has received all sorts of diet injections, and with her skin showing initial stages of aging, she is dedicating herself to skincare.
She is not desperate to get married because of her age. No, she has dreamed of becoming the perfect wife ever since childhood. She majored in music because that is class A qualification for getting a good catch, and if the college she attended is third class, that’s not important because marriage doesn’t depend on school grades. Thanks to her naturally innocent and frail appearance and personal charms, she has first class potential in the marriage market. Of the 100 arranged marriage introductions she attended, she prides herself on never having been jilted, not even once.
She believes that she can get married right now if she wants to but is waiting for the love of her life with whom she can live happily until they get old.
She has been seeing Rookie, a professional baseball player, for about a year. Possessing star potential, he is the guy she has been going out with the longest. But there is always that 1% something that is lacking. Then through one of the arranged marriage introductions, she meets Baek Eok-nyeon, who has just passed the bar exam. She dangerously balances her relationship with the two men, but with the appearance of unexpected rival Mi-ju, realizes Rookie is the one she loves.
She mobilizes all means to separate Rookie and Mi-ju, but this divorced, older woman is not an easy competition. She boldly ends her relationship with Eok-nyeon to win over Rookie, but whenever she feels distressed, she leans on the former for consolation. Then she finds herself treating Eok-nyeon with sincere feelings, rather than simply thinking of him as someone to turn her charms on. She feels comfortable with this guy who accepts her disheveled appearance, and even her tantrums. Not realizing that this feeling for him is true love, she continues to cling to Rookie until Eok-nyeon leaves her. She finally realizes that the way to a man’s heart is not through the skills of pitching her eyes, but through sincerity. With a new heart and outlook on life, she goes out to another arranged marriage meeting where she meets her true love, Baek Eok-nyeon.
Seon-wu Eun-yeong (Iim Ji-eun) - Dentist. Head of a small hospital. Master of charms. Queen with the thickest skin!
Selfish, pretentious and greedy, she never rests until she gets everything she wants. Audacious and sharp-tongued, anyone can tell that she has been spoiled never thinking about other people’s feelings. Her alluring smiles and charming talk are the weapons for melting her husband’s heart.
She seems easily influenced by others, but at the decisive moment her selfishness takes over. She can only be happy when things go her way. Even though she pretends to be otherwise, she maintains her looks with continuous plastic surgery and dieting.
Having stolen another woman’s man, she is always suspicious of her husband who was so unfaithful to his first wife. But in the end she is the one who has a secret affair with her husband’s older school buddy.
She befriends Mi-ju at a dental seminar, and scouts her to her hospital, even finding her a home right next-door. But when she finds out that Mi-ju is her husband’s ex-wife her attitude changes completely, and without even giving a thought to her past sins, she accuses Mi-ju of being a husband snatcher. True to her blind hot temper, she takes out her anger on tormenting her husband and Mi-ju.
However, if indulgence can be given to this apparent villainess, it’s her sincere love for her husband. Because of Mi-ju’s revenge, which starts about the time she ends her secret affair with her husband’s friend, her marriage hits the rocks but she wages a fierce battle to protect her marriage and keep her husband. In the process she realizes the simple principle of life that if you make someone else shed tears, you yourself will shed tears of blood.
Hating to loose while loving her husband sincerely, enables her to gain victory in the end, but the joys of winning is so very bitter.
Jeong Seok (Cheng Woong-in) - Department Head of Plastic Surgery Eun-Yeong’s present husband and Mi-ju’s ex-husband
Cowardly and indecisive. Possesses a menial attitude of being weak over the strong and strong over the weak. He chooses love over his wife and child but life with Eun-yeong is not much better.
Having a working wife, he has to share housework and child-raising, so daily life is exhausting for him. He sometimes misses the old times when he bossed over his ex-wife, but has no wishes to go back to her. He wants to be known as a devoted husband, but the truth is he is more of a hen-pecked one.
He is taken back and is afraid of Mi-ju’s sudden appearance, but soon after his fatherly love is rekindled when he sees his son.
Having lost the right timing to tell his wife that Mi-ju is his first wife, he lives in constant fear until the truth is revealed. He suffers at the hands of his present wife, but finds out about her infidelity, and rages over his wife’s betrayal. Through Eun-yeong, he gets back all the pain and hurt that he inflicted on Mi-ju. He apologizes to Mi-ju with all his heart, and decides to go back to her. However, Mi-ju advises him not to break another family, and so he stays with Eun-yeong.
Rookie. Real Name: Jang Wu-jin (Lee Ki-woo) - Professional baseball player. Pitcher turned batter
Bright and playful, he is honest, simple and never conniving. He seldom becomes angry but better watch out if you hurt his pride.
Possessing a very strong will to win he will not rest until he does even if it’s something trivial like a computer game. But he is big-hearted about major issues in life, making him truly a man among men. Being an orphan, he managed to maintain his positive despoition thanks to baseball.
His career sped along through high school, college and as a professional player winning him the Best Rookie Award. However, only throwing straight balls just like his personality, he falls into a long slump.
Believing it to be his last opportunity he endures rigorous training and masters diverse pitching styles, making a successful comeback. With his advancement into the US major league right in front of him, he hurts his shoulders during a game and his dreams are shattered. Believing that 32 is too old an age to start again, he gives up baseball and joins the rank of unemployed.
Witnessing his girlfriend Da-rim’s infidelity, he declares his break-up with her. But she is the first woman that he has ever had a serious relationship with, and it’s not easy to stop her from controlling him.
Not understanding women, having a relationship is difficult for Rookie. Being an orphan he has special dreams about having a family, and he invests all the money he earned as a baseball player into buying a house. However, because of his manager’s one-sided decision, he ends up renting out his house.
His tenant is Mi-ju, and while quarrelling and fighting with each other, he falls in love, and finds his hidden wounds and painful memories of being deserted by his parents, healing. He realizes his love for baseball cannot be ignored, and puts on his baseball gloves again. Thanks to Mi-ju’s absurd training methods, he realizes for the first time in his life that baseball is not an occupation but a fun game.
Newly found affection for baseball grows together with his love for Mi-ju. Going onto the baseball ground as a batter, he presents his first homerun to Mi-ju.
Thanks to her husband Jeong Seok’s infidelity, Mi-ju ended up as a divorced single-mom at the age of 29. She moved to the U.S. with her young son, and took on any job she could find to make ends meet. She lived fiercely to raise her son and to educate herself, and ultimately succeeded in becoming a dentist. Now, after ten years, she is returning to Korea to take revenge on her ex-husband.
On her 10th wedding anniversary, Eun-yeong – Jeong Seok’s former mistress and now his wife – goes to the airport to pick-up Alice, the dentist she has scouted to her hospital. But Alice is no other than Mi-ju, who had purposely approached Eun-yeong to gain her friendship. Mi-ju is delighted when she discovers she will be living right next door to Jeong Seok and Eun-yeong.
However, on the first night at her new house, Mi-ju unintentionally ends up sleeping under the same roof with an unexpected visitor, Rookie. Next day, they quarrel over the house, and it seems that the revenge Mi-ju has plotted for ten years is not going to go as smoothly as she hoped.
Waking up at Mi-ju’s house, Rookie goes to his room to pack his clothes. Just when he is about to put his pants on, Mi-ju burst opens the door making him fall over the clothes hanger, aggravating his shoulder wound. They rush to the hospital, and while waiting for the results Rookie telephones Mi-ju repeatedly ordering her to do his errands saying she made his injury worse. The two quarrel whenever they meet, and their relationship seems to go from bad to worse.
However, even while quarreling with Rookie, Mi-ju never forgets her plans to take revenge on Jeong Seok, and one day hears Eun-yeong’s complains about her sex life with her husband. Mi-ju presents Eun-yeong with a sexy nightdress and ten-year old roasted bamboo salt, which she claims invigorates men’s sexual prowess when they drink it with wine. But this bamboo salt is in fact no other then a strong constipation reliever!
While entering the hospital, Rookie accidentally overhears his manager talking with his coach, and discovers that his deltoid muscle has been ruptured, making his full recovery impossible. He runs out of the hospital, and finds himself at a loss about his life. His coach is worried about his injury, and advises that he undergo a shoulder operation. However Rookie refuses to take the operation as long as the injury doesn’t affect his daily life, and declares he will give up baseball. Leaving his training camp he has no place to go, so he suggests to Mi-ju that they share the house, but she refuses him point-blank.
On other hand, Eun-yeong arranges a blind date for Mi-ju with Tae-jun, Jeong Seok’s older college buddy. They end up going to an alumni meeting together, where a charity auction for treating children burn patients takes place. Eun-yeong frets to make an antique necklace hers, but Tae-jun is the one to actually buy the necklace. He promptly gives it to Mi-ju.
While gathering up the baseball equipment that Rookie threw away, Mi-ju slips. Meanwhile having second thoughts about his equipment, Rookie returns to the house just in time to see Mi-ju fall. He runs to her and tries to pick her up. At that moment Da-rim appears and sees them in an awkward pose, which causes her to misunderstand their relationship. On the other hand, Mi-ju finally succeeds in opening Jeong Seok’s secret safe, and takes his secret account register and bankbook hidden within. She calls him up, determined to end her revenge.
Tae-jun invites Mi-ju to go midnight fishing with him. Jeong Seok spies them talking, and feeling a funny sort of jealousy, he follows them.
Mi-ju, still holding onto her vows of revenge calls Jeong Seok. With his secret account register and bankbook in her hands, she threatens to tell Eun-yeong about them. Not knowing what else to do, Jeong Seok decides to confess the true identity of Mi-ju to his wife, and hurries home. Near his house, he accidentally bumps into Jun, who breaks into a big smile, and asks for directions to Ms. Song Mi-ju’s house, his mother. Jeong Seok’s heart falls when he hears this. Now, finally reunited with his son after ten years, he is flooded with emotions he hadn’t expected.
Meeting his son Jun for the first time in ten years, Jeong Seok wants to do so many things for him. So first, he buys Jun a skateboard, and the two of them spend some fun time at the neighborhood park like father and son. Meanwhile at Jeong Seok’s house, his daughter Hana burns herself because of a hot pot of noodles. Eun-yeong tries calling her husband but his cell phone has been turned off. Not knowing what else to do, she calls Tae-jun.
On the other hand, feeling stifled, Mi-ju leaves the house for some batting practice when she bumps into Rookie. He remarks that she seems to feel stifled everyday, and offering to set up a batting area in her garden, he takes her to an auto junkyard. In a flash Rookie sets up a cool batting area for Mi-ju. Even though they quibble with each other on the outside, the two can’t help feeling a strange sort of affinity between them. They don’t realize the true identity of that feeling but they can’t help being conscious of each other’s presence.

Even though they quibble with each other on the outside, the two can’t help feeling a strange sort of affinity between them. They don’t realize the true identity of that feeling but they can’t help being conscious of each other’s presence. After observing his mother and Rookie closely, Mi-ju’s son Jun, half jokingly remarks that he thinks Rookie is attracted to her.
Meanwhile, Jeong Seok drops by a cell phone shop to buy one for Jun. When he asks what kind of phones are popular among young people, the shop owner mistakenly presumes that he is having an affair, and even offers a couple payment system. But in the same shop, the real estate agent Chu Gil-yeon is sitting at the table writing out a house-leasing contract, and overhears the conversation between the two men. She looks at Jeong Seok with eyes that said, “Ah-ha. I’ve caught you!”
When Chu Gil-yeon meets Eun-yeong at a mall, she informs Eun-yeong that she saw her husband buy a cell phone that afternoon. Eun-yeong checks her husband’s cell phone, presuming that he is having an affair with a young woman.
Rookie tells Mi-ju that he is having his operation at seven in the morning, and stubbornly demands that she be there because if anything goes wrong he needs to sell the house that she is living in to pay for treatments. Mi-ju thinks Rookie is being absurd, but something pulls her to him and she finds herself running to the hospital. However, when she hurriedly arrives there, she sees Rookie walking by supported by his manager and Da-rim.
When Jeong Seok hears from Eun-yeong that Rookie is attracted to Mi-ju he can’t help being sensitive about it, and pushes his wife to find out more by inviting Mi-ju over to their house for some beer.
Jun is alone in the house, and Jeong Seok becomes drunk while waiting for Mi-ju. Meanwhile, Rookie suddenly takes out his cell phone, and takes a picture of Mi-ju’s face. He tells startled Mi-ju that he just took an x-ray, and since the wounds of the heart always shows on the face, he will study the x-ray carefully, and heal her injury. And there’s nothing Mi-ju can do about her trembling heart.
Thinking that Jeong Seok has put one over her, Mi-ju comes up with another idea for revenge while talking with Eun-yeong.
Mi-ju sends a text message to Jeong Seok as if it was from, telling him to come to the steam bathhouse. Believing that the message is from Jun, Jeong Seok heads happily for the bathhouse. Mi-ju discovers Jeong Seok in one of the steam rooms, and creates a kiss mark on his neck with a suction tool. She then runs away from the scene. Realizing he has been had again by Mi-ju, he sees Rookie entering her house late at night, and throws stones at the house.
Meanwhile, Jeong Seok plans his revenge to get back at Mi-ju, and invites her and Jun to his house for dinner. After eating the spaghetti that Jeong Seok prepared, Mi-ju has a sudden attack of stomach cramps and runs for the bathroom.
After going back and forth between Rookie and Eok-nyeon, Da-decides to end her relationship with Rookie. On the other hand, on the pretext that he can’t clean his house because he is still recovering from his operation, he calls Mi-ju to his house. Da-rim arrives at Rookie’s house just in time to find him and Mi-ju tangled in a strange position after a commotion with the mouse.
Rookie prepares cake and champagne, and calls Mi-ju to the front yard of the pension. While taking a walk, Eun-yeong tells Jeong Seok that Rookie is planning to have a party with Mi-ju. Jeong Seok imagines Rookie confessing his love, and hastens his wife to go back to the pension. After intentionally intruding upon Rookie and Mi-ju’s private party, Jeong Seok offers to pour Mi-ju a drink, and sprays champagne all over her instead, ruining the whole party. Realizing that Jeong Seok is jealous, she tells Rookie she’s going into the pension to wash up, and reappears wearing a really sexy dress.
Returning to Seoul, Jeong Seok pretends to accompany Jun to his house, and uses the opportunity to memorize the entrance code to Mi-ju’s house. When everyone is asleep, he succeeds in getting into her house, and madly looks for his account register and bankbook. At the same time, Jun wakes up and comes out from his room to get a glass of water. He hears a noise from the upstairs attic room, and goes up to check out the noise. He carefully opens the attic door, and thinks that it is the same thief who broke their glass window the other time. He tells Eun-yeong that there is a thief is in his house, and Eun-yeong calls the police. Hearing the loud, siren of the police car, the whole neighborhood gathers in front of Mi-ju’s house. Without realizing what’s going on Jeong Seok continues searching for his secret account register and bankbook. When he finally discovers through the window that he has been surrounded, he calls Mi-ju and begs her to save him.
Mi-ju invites Rookie over to her house for some fruit, but discovers right away that there is no fruit left in the refrigerator. Mi-ju calls to cancel her invitation, but Rookie lies saying he has already reached her house. He rushes out of his own house wearing his top inside out. Mi-ju ends up going to the mall to shop for groceries with Rookie, and he asks her to make him broiled hot rice cake the next day, creating another excuse for him to visit Mi-ju’s house again.
The next day, Sang-mi sees Rookie coming out of Mi-ju’s house. While going through the mail, she finds a speeding violation notice addressed to Ji-hwan, and in the picture of the car, she notices a woman’s hand reaching out from the passenger seat.
In order to find out why Tae-jun (Choi Wu-jae) keeps sending baskets of flowers to Jeong Seok (Cheng Woon-in), Mi-ju (Yoo Ho-jung) asks Tae-jun to meet with her. Thinking that Mi-ju is in love with her husband, Eun-yeong (Iim Ji-eun) follows her secretly. Surprised to find Mi-ju meeting Tae-jun, Eun-yeong sits behind them to eavesdrop on their conversation.
Mi-ju and Tae-jun start talking about their first love, and when it seems they are about to reveal one of each other’s secret, Eun-yeong becomes afraid that Tae-jun might start talking about his affair with her. She calls Tae-jun and demands that they meet immediately. Tae-jun excuses himself from Mi-ju saying he received an urgent call from his hospital, and asks Eun-yeong to finish their conversation later.
On her way back home, Mi-ju meets Jun (Kim Beom) who tells her that Rookie (Lee Ki-woo) went to look for her at the café she has just left. So she heads back to the place, and sees Eun-yeong and Tae-jun together. She overhears their conversation and is shocked to find out about their past affair.
After finding out about the true relationship between Jeong Seok (Cheng Woon-in) and Mi-ju (Yoo Ho-jung), Rookie (Lee Ki-woo) sees the two of them fighting. Rookie runs to Jeong Seok and angrily shouts at him but Jeong Seok only tells him to mind his own business. Angry at Jeong Seok’s attitude, Rookie declares that he will become an important person for Mi-ju and leaves.
Being suspicious of Jeong Seok, Eun-yeong (Iim Ji-eun) questions him about where and who he has been with the whole day. Feeling frustrated, Jeong Seok angrily answers that even a worm squirms when it’s trodden on. Jeong Seok borrows Tae-jun’s (Choi Wu-jae) car and leaves for a fishing site with Jun (Kim Beom). Eun-yeong traces Jeong Seok’s location with the cell phone, and goes after him. At the fishing site, Jeong Seok cooks ramen for Jun, and he can’t help his eyes filling with tears while watching Jun enjoy the ramen. He presents Jun with the stethoscope, engraved with Mi-ju and his name.
Afterwards, while urinating in open air with Jun, Jeong Seok spies Eun-yeong who has followed them all the way to the fishing site. He takes Jun by the hand, and they start running. However, while trying to straighten his clothes, Jun drops the stethoscope that Jeong Seok gave him.
After finding out that Jun (Kim Beom) is Jeong Seok’s (Cheng Woon-in) son, Eun-yeong (Iim Ji-eun) is outraged that Mi-ju (Yoo Ho-jung) and her husband had deceived her all this time, but pretends to know nothing. While playing around the Hangang River, Jun gets hurt trying to protect Hana. Jeong Seok panics and starts running while carrying Jun on his back. Eun-yeong angrily asks if startled Hana is invisible to him, and tells him to get out of her sight.
Not even dreaming that Eun-yeong might be aware that Jun is his son, Jeong Seok becomes angry at Eun-yeong’s attitude. But when his wife asks him “Does your heart hurt because he’s your child?” he is shocked to realize Eun-yeong knows everything.
Jeong Seok tries to justify himself, saying that he wanted to tell her, that he hadn’t meant to lie to her. However, Eun-yeong just shouts whether Jun knows anything about this, and threatens to tell Jun everything. Half crying, Jun pleads with her not to say anything to Jun.
Eun-yeong (Iim Ji-eun) demands Jeong Seok (Cheng Woong-in) for a divorce, saying she can’t forgive him for lying to her. Jeong Seok meets Mi-ju (Yoo Ho-jung) at a neighborhood tent bar for drinks. After becoming a little drunk, he confesses that he is meeting Eun-yeong the next day at court, and that she has asked him for a divorce. He demands how they can get a divorce when they already have a child. Realizing that he doesn’t want to get divorced, Mi-ju tells him there is a way to change Eun-yeong’s mind. She advices Jeong Seok to just say three things to his wife.
Having organized her heart, Mi-ju prepares to leave for the United States. She goes to find Rookie (Lee Ki-woo) practicing, and asks him out for dinner as a compensation for having healed her wounds. However, Rookie has a prior engagement with the coach, and they agree to meet the next day.
Next day, sitting in a taxi headed for the airport, she calls Rookie, chanting to herself, “Please don’t answer. Please don’t answer.” When he really doesn’t answer the call she lets out a sigh of relief and leaves a voice mail.
