He comes into the café and hears Da Na talking to a difficult customer. He demands a cake with a satisfactory design. He’s been to three bakeries and he rejected them. He sees Seung Ji and asks for a different patisserie. Da Na explains that Seung Ji is good at it. The difficult customer (DC) warns him that if he can’t make the perfect cake, he won’t get paid.

They continue to argue until Host Club tells him to think about things clearly, with his hand on his chest. After he leaves, Seung Ji asks himself if he’s crazy and what he should do.

Won Il’s stepfather gives his spy the package and then the spy passes it to a mysterious woman in a dark hallway.

Won Yi tries to convince Da Na to support Won Il to be with Panda but she refuses. Won Yi worries that her brother will lose. Da Na wonders about it and Won Yi explains that she already give a point to each boy. Da Na suggests executing the plan to make Panda and Seung Ji make up. So, she goes upstairs and lies to Panda that she needs to take care of the café since nobody else is there. Seung Ji tries to make a list of Panda’s favourites by referring to the list given by Won Gil. However, Seung Ji can’t answer every single one of them. Won Yi enters and tells him to take care of the café. She tells him that Panda went out so he’ll be alone. She goes out.

Panda and Seung Ji meet each other in the café. He tells her to wipe the jam off from her motuh. He goes downstairs and scolds himself for being dumb since this is not what he wanted to her after thinking about it all night. He wonders why she doesn’t want to apologize to him. He frustrates over the fact that he has to face her again. He comes back up to the café but can’t find Panda. He goes outside and punches the panda head, knocking it on the ground. Then, he finds a note which is left by Panda. He walks around the living area and calls her but no answer. He checks her in the room but Panda’s not around.

Host Club tells Cherry Blossom about the quarrel between Seung Ji and Panda. She suggests that things will be calmed down if Seung Ji could just tell Panda how he feels. Host Club explains that he and Seung Ji have dark pasts so it’s difficult to get a girl. Cherry Blossom points out that not all girls are the same. Host Club explains the mistake he made with Beom Bo’s call. Seung Ji’s grandfather wonders how to help them out.
Won Yi runs in with the note that Panda left. She shows it to Da Na. Then, they run to show the note to Seung Ji. It turns out that Panda will not come home until she finds the van. Seung Ji rushes off to find her.

Panda’s aunt tells Da Na that those two are running around for things that they won’t be able to find that way. Thus, they need to tell each other how they feel. DC comes to check on the design. Her aunt and Da Na search through Seung Ji’s things on his progress of making the creation. They find the list of Panda’s favourites and her aunt decide to mark it but Seung Ji failed to answer all of them.

Seung Ji’s grandfather calls him and asks him to come over. Seung Ji grumbles but still goes and finds Panda drinking with his grandfather and Cherry Blossom. She sees Seung Ji and passes out. His grandfather asks him to take her home and he asks why he should do it since his grandfather is the one who got her drunk. His grandfather points out that he did it for him. His grandfather and Cherry Blossom go to bed. Panda wakes up to tell Seung Ji to keep quiet while he smiles to himself at her drunken state.

He pushes her home by using a delivery cart. She complains about being dizzy and offers to push him instead. She stands up and he catches her before she falls. He says that he’s going to go crazy and she answers that she is too since she has been searching for the van. She wraps her arm around his neck and suggests they go somewhere more comfortable. Later, she passes out after they sit on the park bench. Seung Ji tries to calm down and Panda makes drunken kissy faces at him. He sits down to help her up and tries to avoid kissing her before he starts to piggyback her home.

The next morning, Panda wakes up and asks Da Na how she got home. Da Na scolds her for getting drunk and making Seung Ji to piggyback her home. She goes downstairs and apologizes to him and he asks what she talked with his grandfather. Won Il call out for them and they went upstairs. Seung Ji yells at Won Il and angrily walks out. Panda explains about last night and tells Won Il to go talk to Seung Ji.

She goes back upstairs to have some hangover soup while Da Na scolds her for being stupid that she doesn’t know that the guys are fighting over her. Panda denies it but Da Na insists that it’s true. Panda wonders why they like her and what should she do about it. Da Na asks that she should go out with a man and kiss that man but Panda has never tried before. Da Na advices that she should date of them to figure it but Panda points out that she is dating with Seung Ji. Da Na clarifies that she should go on a real date, not fake ones. Panda worries about problems if she is two-timing. Then, Won Yi offers her advices that she should confess her love to both of them.

The guys talk about the macaroon situation. Won Il asks why Seung Ji hates his stepfather so much and he answers that it’s because he has no talent in making cakes. Seung Ji asks the same question and he answers that because his stepfather isn’t supposed to be the one who make cakes. Won Il suggests that they lodge an official claim against Saing Honore. Seung Ji doesn’t want to get out of balance between his personal life and career. Won Il proposes to give up on Panda and drop the matter. Panda sneaks outside in a panda suit. Won Il asks about the mix between career and personal life and he says that whenever he makes cakes, he thinks of Won Il because he wants to punch him. Won Il replies that he wants to hit him too. Won Il suggests that they should fight and whoever lose has to get out of the love triangle. Panda tries to take off the panda head but it’s stuck. The guys notice what she’s doing.

She tries to run away but falls and can’t get up with the panda suit. Won Il wonders who it is but Seung Ji hints him and he runs outside to help her up. She covers her face because she’s too embarrassed to face them since she heard their conversation. She asks them not to fight over her. Seung Ji corrects that he never said he’d live or die of her. He demands her to tell who she likes but she likes both of them. They insist that she can’t date both of them but she says they’ll have to do things her way. Seung Ji stand down so Won Il declares himself as a winner. However, Seung Ji will not back down that easily so he joins in the competition. Won Il grins at her and Seung Ji tells him to wipe his drool off. The first round is that they have to be nice to each other. The winner will go on the first date with Panda.

Seung Ji asks his grandfather how to be nice with Won Il. His grandfather is suspicious that he beat him up or set fire to Saint Honore. He continues to tell him the three types of rivals: (1) One who is smaller than you, (2) one who is about your size, and (3) one who is bigger than you. The taller guys are softer so he has to use tears. Won Il gathers his comrades to strategize. He goes to get ice cream and Won Yi suggests to make Seung Ji happy by putting Seung Ji and Panda on a date. Won Yi complains that she is stuck in the middle and how she doesn’t want to go back until this round is over.

The next day, Seung Ji is preparing to fulfil DC’s cake order. He noticed that Won Il is waiting outside. He’s here to be Seung Ji’s assistant. He comments about Seung Ji’s haircut. Won Yi arrives at Seung Ji’s grandfather’s shop to be his assistant for a few days.

Won Il is a very picky assistant and Seung Ji does everything this annoy him. He sends Won Il to get a pen. Later, Panda spots Won Il and tells herself about her plan. Seung Ji gives Won Il a cupcake but he refuses. Seung Ji lectures him about how a true baker sometimes has to work through the night and it reminds Won Il that his father used to do that, too. Seung Ji makes the whole situation interesting by accusing Won Il for stealing his cake. Then, he starts shouting for Panda that Won Il is beating him up. Panda comes in and reminds them that they have to be nice to each other. She also warns them that she might find someone else if they continue to fight. Upon hearing that, they become friendly buddies. She goes out and laughs to herself that they are doing what she asked even though she didn’t really mean it. But, she doesn’t know who she should go out with.

The DC comes to see the finished product in the morning. He looks at the cakes and cupcakes until he gives his answer. Won Il nervously watching to see how Seung Ji reacts. DC says that he loves it. Won Il pats Seung Ji at the back of the head and Seung Ji playfully hit him. Won Il receives a call from Glasses and goes outside. He is told that his stepfather stole another macaroon design again.

Point of View

Nice bromance between Seung Ji and Won Il. Although Panda intentions is go get them be friends by fighting over her, but I just hate the fact that Panda plays around with their feelings.

Seung Ji starts to develop his feelings of liking a girl. He’s a person who does not express his feelings well. On the other hand, you have Won Il who gets straight to the point. He tries to get Panda’s attention but she doesn’t seem to understand him. So, it’s confusion in expressing love with one another.

I feel sorry for Won Yi who is in a tough situation on who should she support for. She admires both of them as her idols but which one to choose. She is a perfect and funny sister and friend whom we love her so much. She always tries to help her brother such as dating advice while she tries to make Seung Ji happy. That’s some special ingredient to this drama.
