So-jin, who has spent an impoverished life for 4 years preparing for her bar exam, exaggerates and says, "I spoke to my boyfriend the other day and he said I should just bring myself to him". Her boyfriend is the CEO of a venture business who lives in a penthouse that has a swimming pool but he claims he's not the son of a wealthy family. She claimed that she got his propose and that she didn't need to prepare anything so she was wondering what to do.

Hyeon-mi felt jealous although she'd been solo since she was born so she butted in. "It's stressing not being able to reveal who you are dating. I think he feels it too so he's so good to me". She had gone to a filming site for a favor and who does she meet but the greatest Hallyu star Jang Woo-joon. She says they share love in motels outside of the city and doesn't mind videotaping their love-making to make up for the short time they have. She stresses that they had to break up as they could never be official or public and the three of them forget about Seon-hee.

Is there no end to women's gossip? Then they start talking about Seon-hee who isn't there yet. She was always isolated from everyone because she was uglier. No one knew what had happened to her for a while and she couldn't be contacted. Then a completely different Seon-hee appeared in front of them. She's prepared an extremely strong punch for them. What is her vanity story going to be about?
