Shax's CEO Park Jin-man forces the group to appear on a music show, despite their pledge to do otherwise for their juniors' sakes. The move leads junior artists, including Tea Party, to have shorter screentimes. Yu-jin confronts Ryok about the situation and is chastised for being rude to a senior in the industry. However, Tea Party earns a taste of popularity after skillfully performing their debut single a cappella when a technical glitch cuts out their music. Ma-ha fills in the vacated female lead role in a film Ryok is starring in and joins in a tour across major cities to promote the film's premiere.
