On the other hand, Bang Chil Sung’s new wife, Cha Joo Ran, saw the unconscious Da Mi on the ground but planned to ignore her. Thankfully, a househelp got out and also witnessed what happened. This was why Dr. Cha had no choice but to rush Bang Da Mi to the hospital.
Due to the incident, her adoptive parents immediately came to the hospital. Seeing Bang Chil Sung around, Geum Ra Hee pretended that she was concerned about her daughter and made it look like her adoptive parents were using Da Mi to make money.
After hearing this, Mr. Bang felt guilty about how he treated Bang Da Mi and furious over her adoptive parents. He also instructed Bang Da Mi not to communicate with them, and in return, he would support her biological mother’s business.
The next day, Geum Ra Hee got what she wanted and more of what she asked because of Da Mi, making Cha Joo Ran jealous.
As for Bang Da Mi’s connection with Han Mo Ne, this was where her misery started.

After getting lots of agency deals, Mo Ne was willing to risk it all for the glory and fame. After someone leaked information about a high school student who delivered a baby inside the school, she was terrified that the public would know this.
Lucky for her, she came prepared and left evidence that would point out the incident to Bang Da Mi. She also sought help from Yang Jin Mo, who used the media to create fake news against Da Mi.

In the last scene, Geum Ra He choked and pushed her daughter, causing her to be unconscious.
