The fur may have been flying at their first meeting, but things have eased up a little between Be-Ri and Tsuyoshi. Their newfound neighborliness raises Mi-Hyuk’s hackles, however, prompting him to make a bid for Be-Ri’s affections.

But when a familiar face from Japan shows up on Tsuyoshi’s doorstep, Be-Ri’s not the only one who has to deal with affairs of the heart.

But now that Erica’s on the scene, Tsuyoshi’s decision to use Korea as a “fresh start” is becoming more and more difficult, especially when she announces she’ll be joining his class at school. For Be-Ri, the only thing worse than watching Erica’s shameless affection from the back seat of a car is…having to watch it every day from her new seat behind Erica and Tsuyoshi. But what’s this? Is Erica…crying? Seems there’s trouble in paradise, but Be-Ri’s got troubles of her own when Mu-Hyuk’s surprise kiss turns her insides to knots…

Meanwhile, Gyu-Ri and San-Ne are on the rocks as Gyu-Ri’s unfaithfulness becomes increasingly apparent. Be-Ri watches their relationship crumble before her eyes, her heart filled with concern for the suffering San-Ne. It could be an opportunity to make her move, but as much as she cares for him, does she really want her true feelings out in the open at a time like this?

Heartbroken and mortified at San-Ne’s discovery of her secret affections, Be-Ri launches headfirst into a relationship with Mu-Hyuk. She’s still not overly fond of him, at least not in a romantic way, but she’s willing to give it a try, if only to forget about San-Ne. But Tsuyoshi isn’t pleased about the new arrangement. For one thing, Mu-Hyuk is so overprotective that Tsuyoshi hardly ever gets to hang out with Be-Ri at school. For another, much to his own surprise, Tsuyoshi is unhappy at seeing Be-Ri with another guy. True, they were only “fake dating” for the sake of his grandfather, but now the old man isn’t the only one thinking they should give it another go…
