Ga-young tells Sin-ryul that she has something she wants to say to him and asks him to take a walk with her. When they are outside, Ga-young tells Sin-ryul about her father and her uncle. Sin-ryul feels something weird and changes the subject asking her until when she is going to call him mister. To Ga-young who is returning the ring, Sin-ryul asks if it is because of Jun-ho and Ga-young answers no.
Jun-mi is still distant to Dan-ok. Jun-ho sees Jun-mi like that and scolds her. Ga-young hears from the people from her office that Sin-ryul helped Na-young. Mother takes Da-young and Su-yeong to the mountain, thanks them for growing up as nice and healthy kids, and hugs them.

To Ga-young who returns home, Na-young asks why she broke up with Sin-ryul and asks if she ever thought about the family even once. Mother is surprised to hear the noise and comes into the room. Na-young puts herself against mother saying if she ever let her do whatever she wants. In the end, Na-young tells mother that she should have sent her to be adopted by a different family.
Mother goes to Ok-shim’s house because she did not come to the market. Ok-shim cries telling mother that she found out Jang-bok lied to his parents about her age when she went to his house to introduce herself.

Mother calls Jun-ho and tells him that she is disappointed over the fact that he came only with his coworker. She gives him an envelope and tells him to call his friends and play. Mother tells Jun-ho that they should forget everything that happened in the past.
The day before the wedding, Ga-young’s family members go to Jun-ho’s house with the wedding gift. Jun-ho’s grandmother and Dan-ok welcome them politely and mother introduces Su-yeong, Mi-ae, Na-young, and Da-young to them.

The two of them take a walk and pledge that they should not forget how they felt when they were dating.
Ga-young and Jun-ho stop by the mart to buy a lot of things and buy clothes on the sales corner. Grandmother likes the red sweater Ga-young picked for herself. However, Ga-young tells grandmother that she bought it for grandmother because she thought it would look good on grandmother. Jun-ho’s grandmother is so happy to wear that sweater. Kang-su talks to Su-yeong and Mi-ae about his plan to sell side dishes. Ga-young and Jun-ho tell Tae-geun that they have something to do and ask him if they could use the study. Tae-geun understands them and goes into his room. Tae-geun apologizes to Dan-ok and tells her that they should forget everything and try again. Ga-young tells Jun-ho that she needs to earn money and help out mother so that they should not have a baby for a while. In the mean time, Kang-su practices cooking with Su-yeong and Mi-ae. He thinks it is weird that the food doesn’t taste as good as he thinks. Mother wakes up and tells them how to make the food taste good. Na-young comes out to join them and eat.
Kang-su, Su-yeong, and Mi-ae hand out fliers on the street advertising side dish delivery. Sin-ryul makes a lonely smile looking at Ga-young and Jun-ho close together in a cafe.

Kang-su gets mad at Su-yeong who returns home that he should not fight with customers.
As she is having beef, which came in as a present, for dinner, Ga-young thinks of her little sisters and Su-yeong. Dan-ok reads Ga-young’s mind. So she gives Ga-young some beef to take home. On the way back from home, Ga-young meets Jun-ho who had dinner with his coworkers. They walk holding hands. Na-young asks Kang-su if he fought with Su-yeong and asks him to forgive him. Mother tells Su-yeong that it is not an easy thing to become an adult.
Na-young is taking calls in Sin-ryul’s office in English instead of his secretary. Jae-hyuk enters at that moment and walks into Sin-ryul’s office saying something about her English speaking skills. Thinking that Jae-hyuk is a solicitor, Na-young tells him that he cannot just come in like that, grabs him, and sends him out.
Ga-young is hasty because of the deadline for the manuscript. However, she has to clean the house and get ready for different things because Jun-ho’s friends’ mothers are coming over. Coming back from a meeting Sin-ryul is satisfied to see his space organized neatly. Na-young tells him that she could help him until he gets a new secretary. After the guests leave, Ga-young is anxious because she has to work, however Jun-ho’s grandmother asks Ga-young to play Korean playing cards with her.
Coming back home, Sin-ryul finds Jae-hyuk sleeping in his bed not even changed, and laughs. Jun-ho is asleep by himself and Ga-young pulls an all-nighter to work.

Sin-ryul takes the picture away from him and tells him that Ga-young is already married another man. Kang-su asks Na-young who is about to leave for work, why she is not going to drama practice these days.

Sin-ryul asks Jae-hyuk to take the gifts into Young-hee’s house as he waits outside. Young-hee sees Sin-ryul as she comes out of the house with Jae-hyuk, and asks him to come inside. He refuses courteously, and gets back into his car with Jae-hyuk.
When Ga-young and Jun-ho arrive, they meet Ga-young’s uncle who starts to talk about Ga-young’s father, telling Jun-ho how precious a daughter Ga-young was to her father. Young-hee tells Ga-young that Sin-ryul came by the house earlier that day. She also tells Ga-young that Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) works in Sin-ryul’s office. Jun-ho sees Ga-young and Young-hee whispering, and senses that Sin-ryul had sent them the gifts. Jun-ho gets a little upset.
As Jun-ho and Ga-young drive back home, Jun-ho gets mad at Ga-young for not being truthful with him about who sent the box of pears to Young-hee’s house. Ga-young turns back and looks at him and then stops her car on the shoulder of the road. They start to yell at each other, and in the end, Ga-young tells Jun-ho to get out of the car.

Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) feels awkward as she’s seating inside a cafe, talking to Choong-geol(Roh, Joo Hyun). Choong-geol tells her that she has changed a lot, and she gets a little sad to hear that from him. She feels like she’s nothing compared to him. Choong-geol tells Young-hee that he still has the letters that she gave him long time ago. She answers that he should’ve thrown them out long time ago. When their eyes meet, Young-hee blushes and tells him she must get back to her store. As she walks to her store she turns and looks back to steal a glance at him.

After Choong-geol leaves, Na-young asks Su-yeong why can’t he be nicer to Choong-geol. She tells him that’s the least he can do for Young-hee who raised him since his mother left him as a child. Su-yeong gets hurt to hear these words from Na-young and yells at her. Young-hee hears him yelling at Na-young and gets mad at him for being fretful.

Jun-ho gets a text message from Da-young(Lee, Yoon Ji) congratulating him for becoming a father. He realizes that Ga-young is pregnant and becomes very happy. Every member of Jun-ho’s family leaps for joy at the news, but Ga-young feels uncomfortable and feels the whole thing is a burden.
Na-young takes some cake and goes into Kang-su’s(Bong, Tae Gyu) room. Young-hee finds the two all alone in the room and gets mad at Na-young, telling her not to fool around. Dan-ok(Park, Jung Soo) takes Ga-young to go see an OB-GYN. As Ga-young sees her in-laws buying all kinds of gifts for the baby, she is reminded that she really is a happy person.
Ga-young(Kim, Hae Soo) and Jun-ho(Kim, Seok Hoon) wake up in the middle of the night all worried, and talk about whether they will become good parents. Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) goes over to Ok-shim’s(Kwon, Eun Ah) house and tells her she’s planning a small wedding for Su-yeong(Choi, Sung Joon) and Mi-ae(Park, Han Byul). Kang-su(Bong, Tae Gyu) packs up his stuff and tells Young-hee that he’ll be staying in the factory dormitory for a while. Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) sees Young-hee looking all puzzled, and tells her that they really do like each other.
Ok-shim sees Young-hee cleaning her closet, and feels that there’s something going on. She keeps asking Young-hee what’s going on, and Young-hee confesses that she got her test results back, and it’s not too good. Ok-shim starts to cry as soon as she hears the news, and Young-hee tells her please not to tell her kids about this for now. Young-hee asks Choong-geol(Roh, Joo Hyun) if he could officiate at Su-yeong and Mi-ae’s wedding.
Ga-young takes out a vacuum to clean the house, but Dan-ok takes it away from her, telling her that she shouldn’t be lifting anything heavy. Young-hee goes to see Sin-ryul(Choi, Min Soo) and tells him that someone she knows is sick, but is not sure whether she should have surgery. Sin-ryul senses that she is talking about herself, and calls Jun-ho asking if they can meet. As they meet, they go to the hospital together.
After the wedding, Mi-ae(Park, Han Byul) and Su-yeong(Choi, Sung Joon) are sitting on the bed not knowing what to do. They look at each other and laugh. All of sudden, Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) and Da-young(Lee, Yoon Ji), who’s been hiding in the closet all along, jumps out, and scare the married couple. Jun-ho(Kim, Seok Hoon) tells Ga-young(Kim, Hae Soo) that Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) has a stomach cancer. Ga-young gets all shocked and sheds tears of remorse. Ga-young insists that she’ll go see Young-hee right away, but Jun-ho stops her, telling her to go see her tomorrow.
As Na-young walks into the house, she sees a broken picture frame on the floor and finds Young-hee sitting in her room absent-minded. Na-young asks her if she’s mad at her, and tells her that she’s going to marry Kang-su(Bong, Tae Guy) no matter what.
Ga-young comes to see Young-hee early the next morning and takes Young-hee to her store. As Ga-young watches Young-hee working hard, she feels tormented to even think about how Young-hee’s life has been. Ga-young and Young-hee have a talk as they watch the sunrise.
Jun-ho’s family also learns of the news that Young-hee is ill. They feel sorry for Ga-young and console her. Sin-ryul(Choi, Min Soo) is about to ask Na-young how Young-hee is doing, but then doesn’t say anything realizing that she still doesn’t know that Young-hee is ill.
Young-hee calls her kids into her room and tells them about her illness. They all start to cry. Na-young storms out of the house, unable to face the truth, and then runs into Kang-su.
Ga-young(Kim, Hae Soo) takes out her bankbook and other papers and punches in the numbers to see if she could help Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) pay the hospital bills. She feels sorry for Young-hee that not only that she’s sick, but also she has to worry about the cost.
Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) hears Young-hee talking to Ok-shim(Kwon, Eun Ah) worrying about who’s going to look after her store. She thinks for a while and then gives a letter of resignation to Sin-ryul(Choi, Min Soo). Sin-ryul asks her whether she’ll be looking after her sick mother, and Na-young tells him, with a confidence, she’s going to take over Young-hee’s store. Sin-ryul gives Na-young an envelope with money and tells her to use it in paying Young-hee’s medicals bills, but she refuses, telling him that they already feel stronger because he’s always there for them.
Na-young goes to Young-hee’s store wearing a plastic apron and rubber boots. As she walks into the store, Young-hee and Ok-shim are stunned to see her dressed up that way. Na-young tells them she can handle it and starts to work. Ga-young gathers Young-hee’s stuff together and takes her to the hospital to be admitted. Choong-geol(Roh, Joo Hyun) gives Young-hee a flowerpot and whishes her to get well soon. Ga-young and Jun-ho assist Young-hee as she goes through more tests.
Na-young stays in the store on the day of Young-hee’s surgery working in silence. The family tells Young-hee to be strong and reassures her that she’ll be fine. Afterwards, Young-hee goes into the operating room. Ga-young sends a text message to Jun-ho informing him that Young-hee has been in the OR for 3 hours already. Meanwhile, Na-young is home and she prays to God to save Young-hee’s life while she counts the money she has made today.
Sin-ryul(Choi, Min Soo) and Kang-su(Bong, Tae Gyu) check out their new factory as Sin-ryul encourages Kang-su to work hard and do his best to make this factory successful. Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) is back home. Ga-young(Kim, Hae Soo) and Jun-ho(Kim, Seok Hoon) go back to their home, leaving her behind. Worried.
Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) brings home some abalones for Young-hee, but Young-hee scolds her for bringing such expensive foods to her home instead of selling them in the store. Na-young gets mad at Young-hee and storms out of the house. Young-hee, knowing her daughter’s true intention, feels sad.
Na-young gets curious as to what Kang-su does everyday, since he rarely comes home. She asks Su-yeong(Choi, Sung Joon) if he knows anything, but he tells her he doesn’t know and just smiles. Young-hee starts her recovery procedure by doing a slow walk everyday with Choong-geol(Roh, Joo Hyun). Na-young runs into Kang-su at work but she pretends she doesn’t see him. Kang-su takes Na-young to his factory and tells her that he’ll have to work night and day for the next 3 years. He asks her if she could wait for him.
Eight months have passed and Sin-ryul is happy to see that Kang-su’s business has been very successful and still growing. Ga-young goes into labor as she’s eating her dinner with Jun-ho. Jun-ho takes her to the hospital. While meeting up with Sin-ryul, Young-hee receives a phone call from Jun-ho, and she rushes to the hospital. In the hospital, Young-hee holds her daughter’s hands and tells her she has to go through the pain in order to become a mother. Ga-young gives a birth to a beautiful baby daughter.
Jun-ho(Kim, Seok Hoon) gets upset as he comes home after work that nobody pays attention to him anymore because of the baby. Ga-young(Kim, Hae Soo) learns from her coworker that Sin-ryul(Choi, Min Soo) has left the country. Na-young(Kim, Min Sun) calls Kang-su(Bong, Tae Gyu) at work, but he hangs up the phone telling her he’s busy. Na-young becomes angry. When Na-young sees Mi-ae(Park, Han Byul( eating enormous amounts of food, she senses that Mi-ae is pregnant.
Both Ga-young’s and Jun-ho’s family have gathered to celebrate the 100th day of the birth of their baby Arisoo. All except Na-young who decided to watch the store.
Na-young senses that something’s wrong, as the day’s business is very slow. She goes outside and finds a man with a truck selling seafood in the entrance of the market. Na-young gets into a fight with the man and gets arrested. Young-hee(Go, Doo Shim) comes to the police station and Na-young starts to cry when she sees Young-hee. Na-young tells Kang-su that she cannot wait for him anymore, and tells him she wants to break up with him.
Ga-young’s family goes out on a family picnic. Kang-su comes late, but then he takes out a ring and put it on Ga-young’s finger as he asks her for forgiveness.
On the day of Na-young and Kang-su’s wedding, Kang-su is late for his wedding. Na-young throws her wedding bouquet but it drops where Young-hee stands. She goes down and picks up the bouquet, and everyone laughs out loud.
