While his hesitation may have left him carrying a bouquet and putting across his feelings through a text message, Eun-bi accepted his proposal. Later, Jin-dal gets the news that Man-su, who was a part-timer at Gyeong-tae’s store donated a billion won to Samdal-ri and vanished. This leaves the two stunned while Hae-dal conveys the news while hanging out with the divers.

She has successfully become the newest member of the divers and has been a favourite among them. Elsewhere, we see Dae-young having become the president of AS Airlines for Jin-dal so that she can get back the job she once loved and the two can be together. While on his rounds at the airport, he comes across a familiar face; Man-su who went missing turned out to be a prince.

On the other hand, Sam-dal calls up Kim Tae-hee to replace a model who backed out at the last minute but holds no hope for the actress to help her out due to her scandal. However, she is surprised to see the actress arrive and finds out that she had tried to contact her and had even sent her gifts which Sam-dal unfortunately could not receive as she was back home.

However, this helps Sam-dal realise that there were people in Seoul who were rooting for her back then which makes her happy. It is Christmas Eve, but while the streets are filled with lovers, Sam-dal is alone and wondering why Yong-pil hasn’t replied to her messages. She is soon in for a surprise when Yong-pil appears before her and is back for good.

Finally, the Five Eagle Brothers Gang has made it big as Sam-dal is back being a well-renowned photographer, Sang-do has made his branch in Seoul a success, and Gyeong-tae too has made it big with his chain restaurant. Even Eun-u has become a well-known cartoonist and finally got his breakthrough.

However, Yong-pil has entered the KMO headquarters and is set on giving everyone here a headache while those in Jeju look at the trouble who is finally on the other side of the screen. Finally, peace has made its way to everyone in Samdal-ri as the haenyeos make their way to the sea while Ha-yul and Jin-chan wave goodbyes and wait for them to return.

Samdal-ri is now the place where the Five Eagle Brothers Gang returns to whenever they find themselves out of breath, as this is the place that is forever their safe haven, their stream.
