Seung Ji turns when he hears her behind him. He assumes she’s impressed with his sketches (yes, a look of horror means someone is impressed) and tries to hand her the drawing. She steps away not daring to take it. She continues to try to look at his tattoo. He teases her, she must want to look his body (we all do). He reveals his shoulder and she runs away. If only he had shown his abs instead.
Da Yang asks an unsuspecting Da Na about him. Seung Ji sees Eun Bi, who was not-so-sneakily asking Da Na for info on him earlier, and directly asks her if she’s spying on them. I’m glad someone is there with some discernment. I honestly wonder how Da Yang has gotten this far in life by herself.
Seung Ji bribes her to find out if Won Il sent her to try his cakes. Nope, she says, he just wants to know more about you. His creations must be good if that’s all it takes to make her talk. Or maybe she’s just a really horrible spy. She tells him that he wanted Da Yang to find out about Seung Ji, who’s surprised he would want to know anything about him at all.
Upstairs, Da Yang tells Da Na that Seung Ji has a tattoo on his back. Da Na teases her for being “foxier than she seems.” How could she have seen a tattoo there there unless she saw…everything. Da Yang corrects her explaining that she saw it by accident and the tattoo looked like the edge of a knife. Really, Da Yang? That’s what you think you saw? Da Na doesn’t see anything suspicious about it but she’ll go ask to see it just in case. Da Yang stops here, warning her not to say anything about it. There’s something about Seung Ji that’s off.
At Saint-Honore, Won Il has uncovered that Stepdad has been stealing money over the last 10 years by claiming the funds as ingredient costs. The quality of ingredients have suffered because of it leaving Won Il to wonder why they still had so many customers. Turns out special chemicals were used in their ingredients that would make whoever tasted their cakes fall in love with them. Even the experts that realized Saint-Honore’s secrets were bribed to stay quiet. Wrong, but it worked liked a charm.
Ki Tae is fired from the nightclub (he has a bad temper). Seung Ji offers him a job at Cafe Panda but Ki Tae turns him down as he’s a disaster in the kitchen. He turns around to see Eun Bi in the window and is instantly smitten. Seung Ji tells him she’s Won Il’s right-hand man. Ki Tae asks him to set him up with her. At first he refuses, but they reason that if he’s dating someone as close to Won Il as she is, he can feed him information on Saint-Honore. Both of them win. Seung Ji agrees to introduce him…on a day he’s NOT wearing his nightclub uniform.
Da Na, Da Yang, and Eun Bi talk in the cafe. Eun Bi asks when Da Yang is going to start working for Won Il. Da Na proclaims that she can’t work for him since he looked down on the shop that her parents built. Eun Bi reasons that Won Il was born rich so he doesn’t understand the concept of treasuring something that someone has scrimped and saved for. Yeah, but he tried to get rid of Seung Ji and now he even wants to write an article on him, Da Yang argues. Da Na wonders if by doing all of this, Won Il is trying to tell Seung Ji that he’ll never defeat him while also telling Da Yang that she can’t succeed without him. Good job, Da Na.
Seung Ji arrives giving Eun Bi a box to give to Won Il. He also warns her not to open it and put it in the freezer. Da Yang asks why he’s giving “Byun Bin Go”, Won Il’s new nickname meaning a sack full of poop/potato pancake/turtle shell, a cake. A nickname he immediately likes.
Won Yi longs for Seung Ji’s cakes and wants Big Bro to make up with Da Yang so that she can start learning to be a patissier from him. He reminds her that it would be difficult to learn from Seung Ji and bake at Saint-Honore. Conflict of interest and all. She realizes that’s true and wonders if that would upset Seung Ji, the last thing she wants to do is upset him. He throws her out annoyed that she cares about Seung Ji’s opinion more than his.
As she lays in bed, Da Yang rememebers Won Il’s words during their fight when he scolded her for trusting someone who’s credentials she didn’t even check. She’s starting to think he may have had a point. She goes to Seung Gi’s room to get a closer look at his tattoo. Da Na follows here. Unfortunately, he’s not in his room when they arrive and he catches them looking in his room.
Instead of thinking of a great excuse, something I don’t think they’d be capable of anyway, Da Na admits that Da Yang wanted to see his tattoo more closely and she wanted to take a picture of him naked in case she need to threaten him with something later on. He doesn’t show it to them, the tattoo may be too scary for them to look at.
Suddenly, they hear scraping on the roof and Da Yang jumps on the bed to hide behind Seung Ji. She pulls down his shirt in the process and sees the tattoo, it’s a porcupine. A horrible one at that. The sisters are relieved and I’m wondering why they’re so dumb.
Baker has struck again, destroying their display. He even filled their tires with nails! Da Yang wants to go to the police but Seung Ji knows it’s not worth it since they don’t have any evidence that he’s the culprit.
The two go shopping for cameras to put up at the cafe as she asks him about his horrible (thank you!) tattoo. He blames himself for going to a cheap tattoo parlor. She asks what he asked for originally: a flaming hedgehog. Hilarious since he got a cute porcupine instead.
Ki Tae comes to Grandpa’s bakery dressed to the nines before going to Cafe Panda so that Seung Ji can introduce him to Eun Bi. He tells Grandpa this and he warns him to be good to her. Don’t chase a girl that doesn’t want to be chased. The worst thing a man can do to someone’s precious daughter is hold them hostage when they don’t want to be involved with them. He walks away as a cloud covers Daughter’s face. Bum Bo and Ki Tae are confused so Daughter tells them that Grandpa did that to her.
Eun Bi delivers Seung Ji’s package to Won Il. It’s rolls of money shaped like a cake accompanied by a card with no words, just a drawn hedgehog with money raining all over it. Now we see why he wanted it kept frozen, because revenge is a dish best served…
Won Il storms downstairs and Stepdad is scolding a female manager for not being able to sell a cake that he made since the young customers do not like the taste nor the design. After giving a suggestion (a suggestion that Stepdad asked for) that the cakes geared toward younger customers should be created and designed by a patissier that understands their tastes, he throws his hat at her. Just as he’s about to hit her, Won Il steps him to stop him. He sends the manager away as Stepdad is amazed that the President would interfere with the Director’s matters. Mom begs him to apologize but he refuses instead telling them that a Directors’ meeting will be held soon and they should attend.
One of the head patissiers finds the money cake. Eun Bi and the other assistant take it from him saying that it’s fake money. When he asks why Won Il had it, the other assistant lies and says that he was going to meet with a patissier which confuses him. Eun Bi leaves to return the cake.
Stepdad is in his office worried out about what Won Il will do next. Mom tells him not to worry, it’s just Won Il spouting childish nonsense. He can’t laugh it off and tells her to call Kwon Joo In so that she can come back to Korea. Won Il owns 45% of the company, but if they combine his percent (20%), her percent (25%) and her percent (10%) then they’ll be able to outvote Won Il. He wonders why Won Il’s father gave 10% to a patissier making things so complicated.
The head patissier comes in to confirm their suspicions that Won Il has been meeting a manager. The head patissier means Won Il has been meeting with someone to replace Stepdad but Mom thinks he means Won Il has been “meeting” with Da Yang.
Mom runs to Won Yi to confirm that Won Il is in fact dating Da Yang. Won Yi laughs it off. Mom is disappointed because her mystery is still unsolved but perks up when Won Yi reveals she wants to be a patissier. She wants to reward her by offering money and credit cards. These usually work but not this time, so after some consideration she offers her the next best thing, shares in the company. Ten percent to be exact.
Eun Bi takes the money cake back to the cafe and Da Yang understands it’s the fee for the massage chair. She explains that whatever Da Yang owes, Seung Ji will pay it for now and she will pay back half of everything he took care of. He asks when did they ever say half and she innocently asks if those weren’t the claims as if she had no idea. Eun Bi notices their lovers’ quarrel. She asks if they are dating and they vehemently deny it. Well, you can’t blame her for that assumption.
Eun Bi can’t take Seung Ji’s money to Won Il right now because he has to be very careful. She tells them about the war brewing between him and Stepdad. Saint-Honore’s sales are horrid so Won Il could easily fire him since he has the most shares. Da Yang doesn’t think Won Il would possibily fire his own father, but Won Il hates his stepdad so it is a real possibility. He’s been waiting for years to bury him and this may be the revenge he’s been waiting for. Seung Ji walks out of the cafe in a haze, deep in thought, not seeing all the people trying to get his attention as he goes
When Eun Bi and Da Yang are alone, Eun Bi tries to get her to understand that no man does what Seung Ji has done for her without some affection involved. Da Yang gives all the reasons that wouldn’t be possible: they’re just business partners, he wants a nice place to live, he’s two years younger than them, and he just feels sorry for her. Eun Bi responds with all the reasons it would be possible: no man becomes business partners with someone he barely knows especially when he’s talented enough to go out on his own, what’s so nice about Seung Ji’s room?, older women can date younger men and no man would want to help a woman who’s in as much debt as her. Auntie comes in, shooing Eun Bi away and notices the state Seung Ji’s room is in.
She asks Customer to wallpaper the room. Even though she’s installed the camera outside and replaced the tire on the panda van, she agrees to do it.
Seung Ji ends up at his Grandpa’s house where he reveals that he hated the wrong person (Won Il) since he isn’t the biological son of the director (Stepdad) that destroyed his dreams so many years ago. Won Il actually came to push the director out of Saint-Honore, he was exacting the revenge that Seung Ji was trying to execute. Grandpa is confused and thinks he wants help with some problem he’s having with Panda. Seung Ji’s dilemma isn’t with Panda, it’s wether he should join Won Il to get rid of Stepdad or block Won Il’s attempts to fire him so that he exact his own revenge.Grandpa tells him to forget this revenge and just live his life as happily as he can. I agree, Grandpa!
Seung Ji comes home to a nearly wallpapered room. He tries to act annoyed (because that’s what he does), but he’s actually touched by the gesture. So touched that he makes cute macaroons shaped like hedgehogs, pandas, and turtles. Da Yang sees this the next morning and runs into the sleeping hedgehog’s room, thanking him for making them. She tries to get him up but he refuses saying he didn’t sleep because of all the glow-in-the-dark stickers she put on the ceiling. I love those!
She sees right through his facade knowing that he’s tired because he made those macaroons especially for Won Il. He tells her to tell Eun Bi to come over without any explanation and she thinks that he’s fallen for Eun Bi. He doesn’t respond so she shakes him trying to get more information and in his attempt to get her stop, she tumbles forward so that she lays right next to him. They stare at each other for a moment but the moment is ruined when she smells the stinky blanket he’s using. He tells her he can’t afford a new blanket.
Da Yang goes to buy a blanket and pillow for him. She runs into Grandpa and Daughter who are there to buy Seung Ji a suit. He tells her he has blankets for him at home, but Da Yang thinks this is the most she can do seeing that he works for her. Most people would take that exactly how it sounds but Grandpa thinks she means she gives a living expense to him. Wow, I think you want these two to be together more than I do, Grandpa.
Da Yang arrives at the cafe with Grandpa in tow with Seung Ji’s new suit. Seung Ji doesn’t see how he can bake in a suit but Grandpa reasons that if Won Il can do everything in a suit, so can he. He’s mainly doing this so that Won Il can’t swoop in and steal Da Yang. Seung Ji reminds him that he and Da Yang are not together. Remind? When did he tell him the first time?
Grandpa demands to know how “his girlfriend” knew he needed a new blanket. He tells him that they were fooling around on the bed and she smelled it. Grandpa yells that there’s no way Seung Ji would let her come into his room and “fool around” on his bed if he didn’t like her!
Eun Bi watches Won Il argue with his mother who wants him to stop causing so much trouble, his father has been gone for three days. He cries that he’s simply trying to clean up the mess Stepdad made. Eun Bi gets a call from Da Yang asking her to bring Won Il to shop to try the cookies, but Eun Bi says they can’t today as he’s arguing with his mother. Da Yang tells Seung Ji this, making him feel even worse for Won Il who’s fighting both his parents.
Head patissier/Stepdad’s spy sees Eun Bi grabbing samples of Saint-Honore cakes to take to Won Il. He calls Stepdad telling him he needs to come back now.
Seung Ji is outside looking for someone. She again assumes it’s Eun Bi which he denies. Then she asks him if he’s waiting for Won Il. “Why would I would be waiting for him?’ he says. “Because you’re nice.” she calmly responds. She asks if she should tell Won Il that Hedgehog wants to see him and he gets annoyed that she’s using him as an excuse to see Won Il again. He walks away and she sends Pangy a text.
She follows him to his room where he’s sitting in the dark, the only thing illuminating that dark are Da Yang’s stickers. She sits next to him and asks why he’s so sad. He tells her that he’s frustrated that he doesn’t know what to do next.
Turns out Da Yang sent Won Il a picture of the cookies Seung Ji made and asked him to come over. He tells Won Yi, who’s sitting next to him, to buy the cookies tomorrow. While at Cafe Panda, Won Yi happily eats the macaroons and begs to be Seung Ji’s apprentice. Da Na conditions that she would have to give him Saint-Honore’s secret ingredient. Won Yi is willing to do it but Seung Ji declines. A mysteries man in the cafe hears this exchange.
She leaves the cookies at the office for Won Il. She walks away and Stepdad sees all of this. Later on Won Il asks her about the cookies but when she tells him she left it in the office he’s puzzled. They weren’t there when he stopped by. The next morning he arrives at the bakery to see new cookies being set out at Saint-Honore and they look exactly like Seung Ji’s!
The mysterious man from earlier comes back to Cafe Panda. He’s Ha In Ho, a famous advertising consultant and president of the advertising firm Customer interviewed for. He’s willing to pay Seung Ji a lot of money for his macaroons as his are better than the larger cake shop’s. He’s flattered but he’d like to know which shop he’s referring to. Ha In Ho answers, “Saint-Honore.”
