Joon Yong states that he doesn’t want his character to die as it can be easily prevented and he walks off set.

Namgoog (Park Soo Young) arrives on set to find out from Jang Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) that the writers refuse to change the script. They wonder who would make Joon Young hit rock bottom, as he is such a large star. Namgoog says he’ll meet with the director, he tells Kook Young to meet with the reporters to stop the rumours from spreading more that Jang Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) already saw online.

Joo Young goes to the hospital and meets with a doctor there. He admits to the doctor that he finds it hard to believe that he has contracted a disease that is hard to cure with current medical advancements. He tries to reject the idea that he’s terminally ill when he questions the diagnosis his doctor offers to get him a second opinion.  When in the parking lot, Namgoog calls him and begs him to die this once. He promises to get him scripts with happy endings from then on out. Little does Namgoog understand how close it is to his actual life.
