The fifth episode shocked viewers by showing Lee Rael (played by Seo Ye Ji) making love with Kang Yoon Gyeom (Park Byung Eun) despite all his efforts to push her away. Rael intentionally seduced Yoon Gyeom on his wife’s (Yoo Sun) birthday. Yoon Gyeom, who was going to throw his wife a surprise event in a luxurious hotel suite, ended up canceling his reservation as he failed to resist Rael’s temptation.
Realizing that she got stood up by her husband, So Ra calls Rael in tears and says, “He ruined my birthday. I love him so much, but I guess he doesn’t see me that way. I feel so miserable and alone.” Rael comforted her, saying, “Do you mind if I go to see you now?” and Han So Ra thanked her, not knowing what she had been up to.
However, immediately after hanging up the phone, Rael heads straight into a bathtub with Kang Yoon Gyeom. They share a passionate kiss in a bathtub filled with roses, and some viewers went furious over the fact that they did it specifically the way his wife once described as her own fantasy. After the broadcast, viewers rushed to the comment section and wrote, “Every episode is filled with love scenes,” “I was embarrassed to watch them,” “Seo Ye Ji is beautiful,” and “She’s the fame fatale herself.”
