Chang-hee appears to assume they’ve a very good relationship now and tells him all about how he didn’t get that promotion he wished, however he gave it his all so he’s okay.
Talking of Gu, we get much more info this week about him and what led him right here. He really did get off on the improper station that day, however it may’ve saved his life. Boss Baek, the person who noticed Gu in Sanpo, had his gang ready for Gu on the station he was presupposed to be at. The story isn’t solely clear, however cash and a private grudge are on the heart of it.
We see in flashback that Gu had been asleep on the prepare and woke when a lady’s voice yelled, “Get off!” He’d hopped off the prepare to seek out himself in Sanpo.

Within the current, Boss Baek spots Gu once more and this time, they sit down for a chat. Their dialog is barbed, regardless of the grins. Apparently, Boss Baek’s sister was Gu’s ex-girlfriend. Boss Baek blames Gu for her demise.

She accuses him of operating away when it will get too actual, scoffing at how he handled her like a idiot for the mortgage scenario when he’s worse. Is it actually so arduous to deal with the individual he likes nicely? Mi-jung doesn’t hand over on him, although, to his shock – she tells him she nonetheless thinks he’s alright and needs to proceed courting.
Uninterested in being hunted, Gu goes again to his previous nightclub to confront Boss Baek.

Gu threatens Boss Baek, saying to go away him be till he decides whether or not he’s going to come back again or keep in Sanpo making sinks.
Then, Gu picks Mi-jung up at work and takes her to seize a meal. I suppose he’s not giving up on the connection both. Chang-hee is thrilled to see they’ve made up since he sees Mi-jung as his in with the probably wealthy Gu.
Chang-hee can’t maintain it in anymore and immediately asks Gu concerning the automobile. He virtually begs Gu to inform him the place it’s and let him drive it.

What even simply occurred? These previous couple of minutes gave me whiplash. Given how completely happy Gu seemed in Sanpo, what made him go away?
