Hye Won arrives at work at the Seohan Arts Center and walks into her office.
She takes off her coat and her assistance gasps because she’s forgotten to put on her skirt this morning in her haste.
She tells Young Woo to wake up and even snaps a pictures of the two naked bodies on the bed and snarks that she’ll use this instead as the promotional picture.
Hye Won heads out to the kitchen to brew a cup of coffee while Young Woo sends her boy toy off.
Hye Won is very polite and thanks Dal Mi for working so late, and then compliments her on doing such a good job as Dal Mi’s strong fingers gets ride of her persistent headache after a scalp massage.
As Dal Mi is finishing up with Hye Won she accidentally catches Hye Won’s necklace and the clasp breaks.

After she gets off work, Dal Mi and Sun Jae grab a ramyun at the convenience store.
Hye Won asks her assistant to buy her a skirt today and then smartly takes her pashmina and wraps it around her waist like a wrap skirt and secures it with a safety pin.
