After Eun-Jae's father, who was a bit drunk, came out of the bathroom he entered the wrong karaoke room. In that room, Moo-Yeol and a woman were there. Eun-Jae's father apologized and left their room. Then, Eun-Jae's father remembered who the guy is in the other karaoke room. Eun-Jae's entire family are diehard fans of baseball team the Blue Seagulls, arch-rivals of Moo-Yeol's team. the Red Dreamers. During the 7th game of last season's championship series, the Red Dreamers and the Blue Seagulls faced off in the decisive game. During the game Park Moo-Yeol and the ace picther for the Blue Seagulls fought after Park Moo-Yeol threw his bat at the pitcher. Both players were ejected from the game and the Red Dreamers would go on to win the game and the championship title. Eun-Jae's father, now even more drunk, went back to Moo-Yeol's karaoke room. Eun-Jae's father yelled at Moo-Yeol for making the Blue Seagulls lose. Moo-Yeol and Eun-Jae's father stepped out into the hallway and got into a slight physical confrontation. Park Moo-Yeol pushed Yoo Eun-Jae's father and he fell down. Right at that moment, Eun-Jae saw her father on the floor. Eun-Jae became angry and then tossed Park Moo-Yeol to the floor.
After hearing Park Moo-Yeol's explanation, Kim Tae-Han tells Moo-Yeol that he has to find the woman from the video and clear the situation. To avoid the media, Moo-Yeol hides out at the apartment of his teammate and sunbae, Jin Dong-Soo.
After Eun-Jae explains what happened the other night to her boss Kevin Jang, Mr. Jang orders Eun-Jae to go into hiding and not reveal her line of work or it will ruin their business.

In front of the karaoke bar, Eun-Jae sees a man and mistakes him for the owner of the karaoke bar. The man is actually Kim Tae-Han, director of communications for the Red Dreamers. Tae-Han is at the karaoke bar to find the woman from the video. Eun-Jae takes Tae-Han to her boss's office. Kevin Jang and Tae-Han both agree to do whatever it takes to calm the situation down.
