In the final episode, Jung Myung-seok tried to recover the relationship with his ex-wife Ji-soo (Lee Yoon-ji), who left him because he was only concentrating on his work.
Ji-soo urged Jung Myung-seok to quit law firm Hanbada, asking him not to focus only on his work for his health.
As if accepting Ji-soo’s proposal, Jung Myung-seok stimulated viewers’ curiosity by replying, “If I feel the need, I’ll quit Hanbada.”

Not only the couple Woo Young-woo & Lee Joon-ho, but also the love line between Kwon Min-woo (Joo Jong-hyuk) and Choi Soo-yeon (Ha Yoon-kyung), who started to form a strange atmosphere, is drawing attention.
In particular, in the hope that Kwon Min-woo, who flattered his seniors habitually, would change, Choi Soo-yeon expressed her feelings, “For your colleague, for something you believe is right, can’t you put down your tactics and politics for a bit and just be brave like a fool? I like that kind of guy.”
