We are going to be good partners.



What's the matter?

Let's step out for a second.

Wulke (younger sister-in-law) visited.

Da Som? Why?

She said she is taking Jin Yeong.

Why did she suddenly say that? Up to now she hasn't taken care of him.

She said she would take him so he can have his surgery.

You know the black card given by the CEO? With that he can have the operation.

I said that also,

but she said Jin Yeong's disease is rare

so even if we have the money, without connections he can't have the surgery here.


Then is she taking Jin Yeong because she has the connections?

She said she will take him in a week so I should get him ready to go.

For now, go home and sleep. I will take care of Jin Yeong somehow.

All right.

It's me. Let's meet for a while.

- Why did you call me so early in the morning?
- Don't you know why?

So what if I'm taking my own kid?

I have been the one taking care of him up to now. Suddenly you come and announce—

When we separated, you said the person who would raise him was you.

Because you said you could give up anything else but that, I let you have him.

So has he had his surgery?

Has his disease gotten better? He's gotten worse.

But I've earned money so he can have his operation now.

Even if he were to have surgery, it will barely stop the disease from getting worse.

I've heard it's too late.

What about you? What would you do to make him better?

Do you know Dr. Brown?

Who is that?

He is the only doctor who succeeded in transplanting a heart and a lung simultaneously.

We will go and he will have the surgery.

Is that is what you meant by a connection?

Are you saying you can take him for the operation because you have a connection to Dr. Brown?

Yes. Although success is not guaranteed,

I will save him this way

because I gave birth to him.

Is this all?

There's nothing left after you pay for all the bills.

I'm looking for work too. I've been working nights as a driver.

So when?

Do you think I'm not trying to make money?

I want to buy you designer bags and treats for Jin Yeong.

But you can't.

What's the point if you want to but can't?

Does money grow on trees?

You can try to sell something.

You married me knowing I had nothing.

You said you only wanted me and nothing else.

I got lost in your radiant face.

You, a grade school soccer coach?

I thought you would at least become a professional coach.

Can't you even do that much? If you don't have the ability, go and make some connections.

Do I know who you are?

You've really changed.

It wasn't money that changed me, it was you.

I feel like if you make some money you can do everything.

When you're broke, you think money is the best. When you're alone, you think love is the best.

Not me. It's just money that's the best.

Our memories didn't come from money.

How is money the best?

You can't make money if you think that way.

If you have lots of money, you will have lots of people in your life.

I guess you bagged a rich guy?

Yeah, I'm going to do that now.

You should seduce a rich woman too.

Who knows, you can probably save your pathetic family.


Here's a gift. Let's break up.

What about your affairs in the US? Have you resolved everything?

Yes. Thanks to you, I've taken good care of everything.

That's good.

I was really uneasy when you weren't here.

I'm really grateful for all of the help you've given me so far.

After what happened with Ji Na, I, too, was really uneasy.

That's why I left the US and came back to Korea.

I'm really grateful to you.

Since you were the only person

who helped Ji Na.

Ji Na,

until she met you, had a really hard life.

After she met you,

she said it was like she was living a new life.

It was beautiful.

That's what I thought back then.

CEO, I'm going to visit Ji Na this weekend.

Do you want to come with me?

I would like that.


Photographer, you're here!

Please, sit.

- You made a hard choice. Thank you.
- It's no problem.

Because of you, we made it to the finals.

I'll ask you to take care of us until the end.

Since you trusted me and left the decisions up to me, I'll do my best.

Are you going to stay in Korea after the competition ends?

Yes, well, I think I'll be here for a while longer.

That's good. Then, let's do a project together.

I'm launching a perfume line next month.

I would like to do a collaboration with you.

Hyeon Seung Hoon would be the main model.

Let's work well together in the future.



What's going on this morning? You don't have any events scheduled today.

And why do you look so serious?

I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I have something urgent to tell you.

I'm in the middle of discussing a project. Can it wait?

This isn't something that we have to decide right away. Let's talk about it later.

I'll leave you two to talk. Goodbye.

What is it that couldn't even wait a few minutes?

My wife says she'll take our son.

Da Som's son? Why?

When we separated, I said that I would raise him.

but his situation got worse because I couldn't get his surgery done in time.

Because of that, she said she'll take him and get the surgery done herself.

Wouldn't it be enough, even if it now, for your son to have the surgery?

What he has is called Eisenmenger's disease.

And it's extremely rare in children.

As long as you have the money, you can get the surgery right?


Why did you come looking for me?
Please help me one more time.

Are you crazy?
Last night,

you asked me what you could do.

You said you would do anything.

So, help me save Jin Yeong.

It's a standard contract,

The lengths is years. Profit sharing is comparable to other companies, a : split.

You get % and we get %.

In the case of scandal, the penalty is five times the down payment.

Our company is on the stronger side. But in return, you can be more certain in our support of you.

The public's opinion can change overnight.

Be careful though, when it comes to social problems.

The penalty is expulsion and a fine.

No one is an exception.

Are you going to sign or not?

If you sign today, you get million won (~ , USD)

in your account immediately.

- million won?
- I am taking responsibility for your child.

I'll get a date for his surgery.


Work hard at the filming site.

I'll take care of the contract work.

Thank you.

Please take care of me in the future too.

Hyeong! Hyeon Seung Hoon?

I can't believe we're running into each other here too. It's been a long time.

Did you come to meet CEO Han?

- You know her too?
- Of course!

I came to help her for old time's sake.

Really? I just signed a contract with this company.

Really? That's great! We'll see each other more often then.

-I know right!
-Let's get a drink sometime.

- Let me know when.
- Okay.

- Bye.
- Bye.

Find out what Park Da Som did yesterday and the day before,

and write it up formally in a report.

It would take me - hours to get a general idea of what she did.

But if you want me to be more thorough, it will take about a day.

Just figure out where she went.

Let me know if you find anything strange.


I just finished up here.

Should I come to see you right now?

Yes, yes. Sure.

Sorry for making you wait.

The Changdam beauty shop I mentioned

President Park only went once since it opened.

There is one thing bothering me. When the owner was studying abroad.

they were pretty close with Ji Na.

- Are you sure?
- Yes. I'm certain.

Please look into the beauty shop for a little longer.

Why is your face so red?

Did someone hit you?

I signed with President Han.

That's awesome! You just need to do well in the competitions.

There isn't much time so I need to focus.

Right, the finals. What's the last mission before the finals?


Do you know the photographer Lee Seon Woo?

Lee Seon Woo? I'm not sure.

He was a famous magazine editor in the US.

He debuted here and he's pretty popular right now.

But now, he works at our company.

Look at you go, Hyeon Seung Hoon!

Sometimes I wonder why everything is going so well all of a sudden.

I can thank President Han for all of this.

The president is your benefactor.

True. I need to do a good job.

I think Seung Hoon signed a contract with Chae Rin.

Did they tell you?

We're not together anyway.

If we bring the kid into it,

maybe Seung Hoon will hesitate.

Is that why you offered to do his surgery?

That's not it.

I did it for you.

It's so pretty.

- President
- Oh my!

Mr. Lee! What brings you here?

It's been a while.

This place is totally Brooklyn style.

You're the first person to notice that!

- I'm honoured!
- It's nothing much.

- Do you want some coffee?
- Sure.

Thank you

That a busy person came all the way here ...


Do you know Gu Hye Seung from Me and Me Beauty?

Of course. She is a VVIP at our shop.

Why do you ask?

I wanted to meet her while I was here but I don't think she is in Seoul.

The business went under and the family all left.

I think they moved Mount Jiri or something.

It's really unfortunate.

They're all new?

I just brought them in. My beautiful babies!

- Do you want me to take some photos?
- Really?

You're making me so nervous about your fees!

I'll do it exchange for this amazing coffee.

I like to pay people back double what they owe me.


Thanks for coming last minute.

Is this enough for the main line?

It was developed based on the target market. It also aligns with the season.

Since it's the regular auditing season for APEC

please make sure the ingredient labels are compliant and accurate.


- Mr. Lee
- Yes?

Is there a better way?

The reaction to our branding changes was not good.

I can reduce the depth.

Something more mysterious and luxurious would be good.

Do you know our model, Han Seung Hoon?

Changing the model would be good and improve the image of the company.


Our competitors are using the same concept as us.

Did you get this from David?


Jin Yeong, we'll be home in a week. Can you hold out until then?

Let's get some sleep.

Yay! I'm going home!


Am I all better now?

- Will Dad be at home?
- Of course.

Do you miss your mom?

Mom? I miss her.

So, let's get some sleep.

The sooner you sleep the sooner morning will come.


So David met with Da Som yesterday for lunch?

Yes. For about minutes in secret.

These photos are from paparazzi.

They really did meet.

Do you know what they talked about?

No. I didn't get that far.

Do you need me to find out somehow?

No. It's okay. Thank you.

You cleaned this job up nicely.

I'll make sure you get paid for everything including the photos.

Thank you. Let me know if you need my services any time.

Of course. Thank you.

I'll have to get Park Da Som.

What did she discuss with David?

First, I need to separate them.

Get Park Da Som's contact information.

We need to see the product more than your face.

The number you have dialed...

Where is Chae Rin?

[Secretary Yoo]

Secretary, Hello.

I can't get in touch with President Han today.

Is there something going on?


I guess it will be hard to get in-

Oh my god! What the hell?

Are you stalking me?

What the heck.

- You startled me.
- Gosh, you're overflowing with money.

Where do you get your money from?

Why did you ask my dad for money?

Ahh... So annoying.

Do you think my father-in-law would give it for free?

He made me work for it.

- What was that?
- Why would I...

ever tell you?
- Right?

So I can get in shit from your dad?

- What are you doing?
- You, you

What is wrong with you? Stop!

Chairman Park

- Hello.
- I'm meeting David tomorrow for a round of golf

Do you have time?

Nice shot. Nice shot.

- Nice shot.
- Here.

How's the Chairman?

Do you have a problem?

When my father asks you a question, you should answer.

He's fine.

Okay. That's a relief.

Don't get me wrong. He wasn't qualified but he still hung in there.

So you just took it?

It's no use to get angry. Everything was done legally.

Simply put, that position was out of his league.

This is what I don't understand, Chairman.

Weren't you supposed to be his friend?

Yeah, business is business. Even with friends. But what about loyalty?

It was what was best for everyone.

For me?

Come on. I already ordered us dinner reservations.

- That little...
- Are you just going to let him be?

That stupid little....I should just with the putter...

- This is Han Chae-Rin.

I want us to meet briefly.

Is that why you're calling?

I think I can help you.


It's me. Why is President Han calling me?

Could you turn around a bit?


Please focus.

Let's take a minute break.

Seung Hoon, what's wrong? What's up with you today?

Nothing. I'm okay.

All these people are here for this photo sh**t.

What's the point if you can't focus on work?

I'm sorry, Hyeong. I'll focus on the sh**t.

What's wrong? Just shake it off and you'll feel better.

- Is everything okay?
- Yeah.

Is something going on?

This gloomy mood coming from Seung Hoon is actually really good. Let's just go with that.

- Really?
- Yes.

Let's scrap the concept we used to now and just do the dark and gloomy Seung Hoon.

Let's get more pictures of him being gloomy for the concept.

Do you understand? You have to take this seriously this time.


Seung Hoon, no matter what is going on around you, whatever is happening now and is worrying you,

somehow just continue doing what you were doing before.

It was coming out naturally. Do you understand?


Why did you want to see me?

We've never been that close. Why are we meeting?

Seung Hoon said you are going to take his child.

I guess. Well, I already said that.

Yes, I'm taking my child. Is that a problem?

Of course, it's not a problem.

Have you met with David?

Did he mention if you do as he says then Dr. Brown will do the surgery?

Let's speak openly.

David will do all of that without any conditions?

You believe that?

David said he would do it for me. Ill give you a better deal.

Do you want to meet Dr. Brown first?

David is trying to use the chairman's line anyway.

I'm faster and it's going to be more secretive.


Is it possible?

I promise you.

What did David say he would do?

I can take responsibility and make sure your child gets treated.

In exchange,

Let's have a talk.


You're going to take Joon Yeong?

I'll make an appointment in a week.

Now, I can do it.

No, I'll take care of it myself.

And if the operation is a sucess, I will live with Jin-Young.

- What?
- I made a deal with your boss.

My boss made a deal with you? When?

Go talk to her about it.

There's nothing you can do. Go now.

What are you doing?

The cab fare?

Talk to me.

I heard you made a deal with Da Som.

I guess you heard from her.

I'm fine with Da-Som taking Jin-young to America.

I can't let Da Som live with Jin Young.

What do you want?

I will take custody of Jin Young, since I can now.

Seung Hoon, do you think this is a joke?

You need to make sacrifices in exchange for your son's surgery.

I got the surgery he needed that money couldn't buy.

You wanted this surgery for him.

Don't you think you need to give something up?

Jin Young lived with me this whole time.

If you were able to get his treatment, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

You reporters can find out everything.

Any false rumor is dangerous.

What are you going to do if the wrong story ends up in the tabloids?

Breaking the contract terms is times the signing bonus.

Do you have Billion won (~$ . M US)?

I'll do as you ask.

Let's see what you find.

Yes, chairman.

The photo you are looking at now is Hyeon Seung Hoon.

He is preparing for the model contest this time.

He is legally married, but they have been separated for exactly three years and three months.

Please see the next photo. Yes.

The child you are looking at now is Hyeon Seung Hoon's son Hyeon Jin Yeong.

He is eight years old, and he is good-looking since he looks like his father.

His older sister, Seung Ji, is taking care of him.

Married man with a kid.

The married father is often with President Han.

He's visited her seven times in the last two months.

He was there for a total of exactly hours.

There are rumors that the two are separated.

I got a tip that President Han is rushing their divorce.

It was an expensive tip.

Check your account in minutes.

According to that expensive tip, it seems like he hasn't proposed yet.

That's all. Thank you.

All right.

Good bye.

It's nice to see you here again.

Seon Woo.

Is this your first time here?

It was recommended by a friend. It's nice.

I guess your friend has the same taste as me.

I heard you went to school in New York.

I think I read it in an interview.

Yes true.

My friend also went to school in New York.

Her name is Ji Na.

I see.

Where is that friend now?

She's in America.

I'll introduce you later when I get a chance.

The representative will probably like it when he comes.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to it.

You're home.

Did you drink?


Even my sister knows.

Da-Som wants Jin-yong to go to America.

And after the surgery, she's going to keep him.

She's going to live with him?

I don't want to go back to where I came from.

Running around or jobs.

So you're going to give Da Som custody?

My choice doesn't matter.

It was already decided for me.

If I don't agree, he can't get his surgery.

But still. What are you going to tell Joon Young?

That we have to be apart for a little while.

Can you go with them?

I'll pay for everything.

Okay... More, more, more, more.

That's right. Like that.


Hey. Don't make such an aggressive face.

I meant for you to be more emotional.

Give me some deep emotions.


I'm a little late right?

They're waiting for you.

I'm sorry.

I have something to share with you.

What ever. Why did you call me here?

I have been dreaming a long time.

I just did a photoshoot.

I'm kind of busy so should we get to the point?

- Do you want to step out for a second?
- Sorry?

I have things to talk about with the adults.

Can you get lost?

I got your article on the phone.

In this way, it seems like this talk is important but it's not.

Don't worry.

I've been hearing a lot of interesting stories.

That you're Da Som's sponsor.

It's not a rumor is it?

Who would say something so stupid?

I'll have to sue them.

So what? It was a meeting for an ad.

It was a simple work meeting.

I guess you can't help but think that way because you had a sponsor yourself.


What about this?

Her situation is a mess.

President Han is watching us.

Can you really help Jin Young?

Can you get in touch with Dr. Brown?

You have to be good to me.

I am your sponsor after all.

- Where did you get that?
- Who do you think?

Obviously it was Da Som.

Why would she?

I did the exact same thing you did.

Also, the only thing I want is for her to divorce Seung Hoon.

Are you trying to thr*aten me with that?

Me fine. What about Da Som?

You think Da Som is safe if this gets out?

Da Som is the victim.

A victim who had to comply because of her son's rare disease.

If this gets out, she will get more exposure

and likely more famous.

What do you want?

First, stay away from the Homme Fatale Runway Show.

And live as quietly as possible.

You know what will happen if this gets back to the president?

You got me.

But don't get too excited.

Things can turn around at any time.

I look forward to it.

See you later.

These are presents for you.

Wow, I'm excited!

Is this a tent?

Dad, are we going to go camping?

Of course. Will you hurry to get well and go camping with me?

What's this?

Oh, this?

This is a soccer game.

You can comfortably play soccer at home with this in the future.

For real? I really wanted this.

Thanks, Dad.

My dad is really Superman.

You know I love you a lot, don't you?

Me too.

Jin Yeong. Hurry and accept all the treatment

and get healthy.

Come here.

Back the your father held his ground and hand no right.

Stepping down was the best he could do.

Your father not only made two sets of financial books, but his debt was a lie too.

He was careless in how he operated the company too.

Seung Hoon.

I heard you have a lot of things to pay for.

I want to introduce to a rich woman.

Why are you so shocked? I want you to do well.

Everyone has a sponsor.

I'm married with a kid.

Stop messing around.

Da Som gets what she wants from everyone.

I heard your son is sick. Don't you need money?

That's true.

Runway models don't make that much.

You know you can't make a living with that.

Just meet them twice a month.

Get your allowance from a rich woman.

You can afford the hospital bills then.

If that's too much, just try it for months.

If you hate it you can just stop. No biggie.

If they like you, you can be famous in no time.

I've seen it so many times.

My friends get ads and dramas all backed by these rich women.

Seung Hoon.

Don't you want to succeed?

What's the point of that body and face?

What a waste.

Ji Na. You like this right?

Want some?

What should we eat now?

Want to try this?

Eat slowly.

Ji Na.

She's still like this after all this time.

I can't tell if there's any improvement.

What do you think about switching hospitals?

I'll speak to the doctor.

Ji Na.


Don't touch me!

I was bad!

Don't go.

I'm sorry!

Ji Na.

What did the doctor say?

She hasn't gotten any better.

Even though she's been getting treated for all these years.

Any sudden touch makes her sensitive.

She's a sensitive child.

Either way, I'm glad you're here.

What do you want? Make it quick.

I need some time.

I'm kidding.

You couldn't even handle one beer before. You can drink a bit now.

Alcohol and greed go hand in hand.

You're here for money?

Stop acting like you don't know.

You're with Chae Rin for money aren't you?

You did that to Ji Na.

What was the court's decision?

There's no evidence so it was dismissed.

She was digging too deep into my father.

So I gave her a warning.

Also, your dad...


Think about coming over to me.

You want me to come over to with all the corruption?

Think about it. It will be my company soon.

Did you know my dad made Chae Rin's company?

Served to her on a platter from beginning to end.

I already know.


Let's take a minute break!

I'll fix your make up!

Take a minute break!

I can give you a better offer than David.

What did David say to you?

I can take responsibility and get treatment for your son.

I also have a condition.

Will you get a divorce...

from Seung Hoon.

♪ Warm as a spring day ♪

♪ The scenery then ♪

♪ That splendid dream, above that dream ♪

♪ Petals fluttering ♪

♪ Will I be able to return again when I want? ♪

♪ Will I be able to return again when I want?

I wanted Seung Hoon.

I think President Han thinks of you fondly. Take the opportunity.

I started dreaming after I met you.

Should I pretend none of this happened and go back?

I'll give you the money, so leave your home.

Come live with me.

I don't share with anyone. I'd rather give it up.

I don't want to live a pathetic life.

Do you have a skill for ruining people's lives?

If you ruined one life, you shouldn't do it again.

Chae Rin bothers me.

Are you jealous that Seung Hoon lives with her?

Do you want to be my enemy?

The person who ruined my dad might be the one person I trusted most.

Chae Rin! Are you crazy?

Who the hell are you and why are you hitting my woman?
