She doesn’t tell Lee Gak the reason of being angry, and Lee Gak and confidant trio finally in the outbreak of discontent.
Thus, the four persons gather together, and begin to talk viciously about Park Ha. But Woo Yong Sul at the side does not participate in the discussion. In this regard, Lee Gak, Do Chi San and Song Man Bo say “Is it because he likes Park Ha?” to stimulate Woo Yong Sul.
The words made Woo Yong Sul raged. He shouted, “I just don’t say it, no matter how many times Park Ha fights with me, I will beat her at once, which woman can look at us directly? Making indiscreet remarks or criticisms. My heart wants to turn her four or five rounds in the sky, and then mercilessly drop her to the ground, let her rolling three times.” But at this time, Park Ha is watching from behind. That is the worst time. Woo Yong Sul lost his speech in the piercing eyes of Park Ha, could only stood there blankly.
