As Han Ba Da said she discovered her relationship with Go Cha Won, Jo Eun Gang got embarrassed and couldn’t say a thing. At that moment, Go Cha Won arrived and Han Ba Da told him, “Sit next to her”, making Go Cha Won and Jo Eun gang sit opposite her.
Han Ba Da said, “Trashy humans sitting side by side. You two look good together. Since when? When did you two begin to have an affair?”, adding “‘You’re my first balloon? That’s crazy’”, referring to the message that Jo Eun Gang sent to Go Cha Won. Han Ba Da then slapped both Jo Eun Gang and Go Cha Won.
