Jung Won (Ko Gyung Pyo) is dumbfounded that Hwa Shin (Cho Jung Seok) just set the pair up to date. Na Ri (Kong Hyo Jin) doesn’t understand why Hwa Shin would tell her to date his best friend and why Jung Won likes her because she feels as if she is lacking. He mentions that she can’t have soju because of the new program so he takes a shot and suggests listing off their pros and cons and offers to go first. He tells her that he has very little time due to work and can’t wear whatever he wants. He asks if Na Ri doesn’t know him because right now he’s practically begging for affection. She agrees to pay and he smiles fondly at her.
Na Ri smiles while brushing her teeth thinking of Jung Won.
Hwa Shin waits for Jung Won and when he comes in he asks about Na Ri’s response. He admits that she’s playing hard to get and wonders if he’s not charming enough. Hwa Shin inquiries about how long he’s been interested in Na Ri. Jung Won has to think for a beat but admits that it was since the flight to Thailand. The fact that Na Ri and Jung Won were on the same flight surprises Hwa Shin. Jung Won tells him how she was sitting in his seat and it was obvious it was her first time flying. He tells Hwa Shin that on his flight back he kept thinking of Na Ri. Hwa Shin tells him to be good to Na Ri and she’s not good at resisting. He tells Jung Won not to come back to the station the following day because he’ll be moving into Red’s (Mung Ka Young) place since she’ll get in trouble if she continues to live alone. He doesn’t want to replace his brother but give her support.
Rak (Lee Sung Jae) goes to Jong Shin’s (Yun Da Hun) grave and tells him that he’ll be hanging onto the will for a little while and watch over the women to see who would be a better mother.
Sung Sook (Lee Mi Sook) and Ja Young (Park Ji Young) come to work wearing the same outfit. Ja Young can’t believe they have such similar tastes in everything. The director in the back wants to die and the two women get off of the elevator.
Hwa Shin bumps into Sung Sook on the way to into the new room. He tells her that she should stop competing against him because he doesn’t want to get hurt.
Both the women try to come in with Red at the same time and on can only imagine how this goes. It starts being a race as to who can move into the apartment quicker. Hwa Shin comes and tells them that this is breaking and entering since neither of them had gotten Red’s permission. I would describe this in more detail if it wasn’t such a mess of a scene, but needless to say, Hwa Shin tries to stop the 2 women from moving into Red’s apartment. When Rak arrives he can’t believe what he’s seeing and sends his sister home. During the chaos, Rak’s sister can’t believe that her juniors are acting the way they are. She warns Rak to not associate with people like that. Hwa Shin blocks Red’s door and tells them they can’t go in. Went JA Young tries to use Kimchi as her way in there is a fight and it falls all over Hwa Shin.
Once back at the station, Hwa Shin asks his realtor to find him a place to live near red and he doesn’t care where.
Jung Won’s mother comes to see Hwa Shin’s mother. She chastises her for not eating and asks if Hwa Shin told her what happened. She informs her that both Ja Young and Sung Sook moved into Red’s apartment. This has Hwa Shin’s mother sat up in bed.
Dae Goo (An Woo Yeon) tells Chi Yeol (Kim Jung Hyun) that he’s going to make Red his girl. Chi Yeol doesn’t wait any time telling him to do so. Dae Goo can’t believe what he heard and Chi Yeol asks him that he wants him to say. Dae Goo wants him to worry about it after all Red kissed him as well. Chi Yeol tells him to steps aside and heads outside to meet with Red. Dae Goo asks what it’s like living with her two mums and she tells them it’s like kissing 2 boys. Both Chi Yeol and Dae Goo stop and she asks if either of them are jealous. Chi Yeol stalks to her and leans in close. He asks if that’s what she was angling for and she admits that it’s mainly from him she wants it from. Chi Yeol tells Dae Goo that Red doesn’t like either of them because you don’t kiss a boy you don’t like if there is someone you like. Chi Yeol walks away pissed off. (To be fair, it’s a legit reason to be pissed off.)
Jung Won asks to see Na Ri for a bit and gives her a dress code of tight shorts and a belly tee. She arrives and he mentions the lack of a belly shirt. He grabs her hand and pulls her to in front of the mirror. He mentions that they should get it over quickly so they can play. He starts examining her waist and tells her how crucial it is for a one piece. He grabs his tape measure and when she asks what’s going on, reminds her that he’s sponsoring her clothes. He takes all her measurements and even imprints of her feet. Within moments, (as a seamstress I know it would have at least taken him 1 – 2 hours to do what they show in the show) Jung Won puts together a dress for Na Ri that he designed just for her. When she tells him that she likes it, he asks her to raise her arms but she gets stabs with a pin. He tells her not to leave his sight anymore.
Sung Sook and Ja Young can’t believe that Red isn’t home given it’s so late. When they hear her come in they pretend to be sleeping. This hurt Red, who goes to her room and cries to her father after what happened that afternoon.
Na Ri goes to pick up her phone. The store managed to save everything on it, including the videos of Hwa Shin.
Na Ri bumps into Hwa Shin at work and grabs his arm. She tells him that they should go to the hospital. He pulls away and he tells her no. She starts to check his chest and to see if he’s wearing his bra, unknowingly putting on a show for a few anchors. He reminds her of her date with Jung Won and she tells him not to worry. He pulls her aside and tells her to stop worrying and she tells him that she would if he only took care of his chest better. She admits that when she thinks of his chest it reminds her of her mother and asks if she can’t take care of his chest.
Ja Young pulls into the studio lot and asks Hye Won (Seo Ji Hye) if she smells like kimchi. She tells her that once they have the public interview the announcers will be shuffled around. Ja Young encourages Hye Won to try out for the 9 o’clock news. She doesn’t want Sung Sook to ruin the name of all their announcers. They notice Hwa Shin and Na Ri pass behind the car.
Hwa Shin gets her in the car and smiles before going to the driver’s side. The weather girls start wondering if they’re dating but Joo Hee (Kim Ye Woon) tells them that Na Ri is obviously throwing herself at him again.
Hwa Shin tries to get out of going to the hospital but Na Ri pulls a fit. She tells him to pull over the car and tries to get him to agree to go, she goes as far as to threaten to tell his best friend about it. He stops her and tells her that if anyone finds out that he has breast cancer that. She stalks out of the car.
Na Ri gets him to the hospital and Na Ri agrees to be the scapegoat. Hwa Shin doesn’t like it but Na Ri agrees since it’s not uncommon for someone with her background to have stage one cancer. She tells him it’ll be fine since he’s the one who will be going through a hard time, not her. The doctor mentions that it’s sad that Na Ri loves Hwa Shin more because when a couple dates it should be the other way around. Na Ri tries to retorts about them not being together but Hwa Shin stays quiet.
They get called in and when Hwa Shin goes in with her the woman all smiles at how devoted he is. He gets a scan down and the radiation. He must stay away from fatty food, alcohol and cigarettes. He seems to not believe what is happening.
On the way back, Na Ri gets a text from Jung Won asking to eat. When Hwa Shin offers the same thing she tells him she can’t because she has plans. After a moment she invites him along because the plans are with Jung Won.
Hwa Shin arrives back at the station and bumps into Soo Jung (Park Hwan Hee). She apologises for not making his brother’s funeral and offers his condolences. She mentions that she heard that he and Jung Won are good friends and once she’s married to him they’ll be seeing each other often. This shocks Hwa Shin and once he’s in the office he calls Jung Won.
Jung Won answers his phone and tells Hwa Shin he’s with Na Ri. Jung Won asks if he trusts him and when he tells him he does, Hwa Shin tells him he doesn’t trust him. He hangs up and Na Ri asks what that’s about. Jung Won tells her and then Na Ri inquires if they’ve ever had a fight. Jung Won admits that they never have a reason to fight.
At lunch, Hye Won watches Hwa Shin’s back and Ja Young’s words played through her mind.
Once the broadcast is done, Hye Won starts complaining about her co anchor’s breath. Hwa Shin walks by and tells her that he was eating pork belly and onions. Hwa Shin walks into Dong Gi (Jung Sang Hoon). Dong Gi compliments her and then talks behind Hwa Shin’s back openly. Hye Won asks him to forget what he’s heard and invites him out for a drink.
While out drinking, Hye Won suggest that they work together to get the 9 pm slot. She tells him that it would be a win-win for them both. When she offers to date and marry him he asks why. She tells him that most men can’t handle her and she doesn’t see him having that issue. She tells him that she’ll do anything to no sit next to a smelly man again.
That evening, Hwa Shin’s chest starts itching and goes to see Na Ri. He asks for the cream but she doesn’t answer. He sees her doing a mask and tells her to cover up since it’s already autumn and he leaves. Joo Hee takes this as confirmation that Na Ri and Hwa Shin are dating.
Na Ri comes back and wonders if Hwa Shin is already asleep and wonders if he went out drinking. She haphazardly wonders if he was drinking because he shouldn’t be. Hwa Shin was a little in shock that Na Ri didn’t bit his head off for drinking.
Na Ri shots that morning and while telling everyone to be careful about catching a cold she sneezes twice.
During the day the entire staff is told that they have to go to a dinner because there is an announcement about the 9 pm anchor position and everyone must come. Hwa Shin tries to get him to pick another place with no success.
Na Ri comes to the corner and Hwa Shin picks her up. She is confused when she’s told that he told her last night. When she’s sneezing he chastises her for sleeping undressed and this confuses her more. She asks him what he’s going to do since he can’t eat pork belly or drink alcohol. Hwa Shin follows and Na Ri orders one serving of lean meat and gives it to Hwa Shin. When they do a cheers, Hwa Shin stops him from drinking it under the pretence of being drunk. Finally, karaoke it catches up with her and she vomits.
Soo Jung calls Jung Won to come pick her up and he sends Secretary Cha to get her. His mother chastises him and he tells her to this is she wishes. He goes to leave and asks her if she wants him to live as she does where his father doesn’t pay her any mind. He tells her that he will give her 99 other things but refuses to marry the way she wants him too. She tells him that he can have 99 other things so long as he marries the way she sees fit.
Hwa Shin carries Na Ri back to the station on his back after he offers to call Jung Won and she refuses. She admits that she doesn’t want him to see him like this because she’s embarrassed.
Once back he gets Na Ri tucked in and she starts worrying about not being able to wake up. He stands there trying to figure out what to do. When she starts feeling cold, Hwa Shin tries to find a blanket but after finding none he sits on the bed and tells her to go to sleep and assures her that he’ll wake her. He covers her up and rubs her shoulders. He ends up falling asleep and doesn’t pick up when Jung Won calls either of their phones.
