On this day, Jo Deul-ho (Park Shin-yang) put his best effort forth to save Jang Hae-gyeong (Park Sol-mi), who was arrested by Prosecutors' office. Sin Yeong-il (Kim Gap-soo) ordered to arrest her based on the evidences that she allegedly established a paper company to help Chairman Jeong with tax evasion.

Although Jang Sin-woo (Kang Sin-il) wanted to compromise with Sin Yeong-il, Sin Yeong-il tried to separate himself from Chairman Jeong completely in order to become the Public Prosecutor General for next promotion.

Jang Sin-woo held a special press conference and introduced Jo Deul-ho. Jo Deul-ho used the conference to press Sin Yeong-il.

Meanwhile, MBC "Monster - 2016" and SBS "Jackpot" recorded 8.1% and 9.5% respectively.
