How Does Gu Ja-Gyeong Hold Up In Seoul?
Gu Ja-Gyeong claims his former position under chairman Shin after Baek’s passing. Gu appears to be in the business of running a number of nightclubs in Seoul where Baek had previously tried to sell drugs. Gu finds it difficult to let go of the pleasant memories she has with the Yeom family at Sanpo, especially Yeom Mi-Jeong, despite the fact that she is back at work. At the same time, his drunkenness starts to seriously impair his ability to do his job. He truly benefited from his relationship of worship with Mi-Jeong back in Sanpo, which he misses in Seoul, in helping him move over his past trauma and start again. He contacts his secretary Mi-Jeong (formerly known as Sam-Sik) to make amends and grants him a desire. When the secretary indicates a desire to leave, he gives it.

With no money, a significant other, or a strategy, Chang-Hee feels his life is lacking after giving it some thought. As a man, he feels under pressure to improve his family’s standard of living and laments not having an elder brother to help him with the responsibility. Yeom Je-Ho has a personality akin to an archaic middle-class parent who rarely expresses gratitude for his son but always speaks up to condemn him. Without stopping to consider where his life was going, he spent his entire life working himself to exhaustion. Je-Ho had ignored his wife and kids’ emotional needs because of his low self-esteem and unrealistic aspirations.

Hyeon-Ah says she will in response. Hyeon-Ah does not respond when Chang-Hee asks her to marry him at that very moment. He had given some thought to what her ex-boyfriend had stated about their relationship at the hospital. Chang-Hee eventually realised that everything made sense, and he decided that it would be preferable to spend the rest of his life with the woman who truly understands and values him. But when he doesn’t get a response, he loses all empathy for Hyeon-Ah and devotes all of his strength to keeping his family together. On a phone contact with Chang-Hee one day, Hyeon-ex Ah’s accepts his proposal. Chang-response Hee’s remains emotionless and impassive because he fears that expressing any feelings will make him grieve his mother’s passing once more.

My Liberation Notes Episode 14: Ending Explained Do Gu Ja-Gyeong And Mi-Jeong Reunite?
Mi-Jeong learns that Choi Jun-Ho, her employer, has been having an affair with Su-Jin, a coworker. At Hye-burial, Suk’s Su-Jin promotes a story that Mi-Jeong is having an affair with him in order to conceal their relationship.

Chang-Hee admits to his friends that despite their constant disagreements, he now enjoys seeing his sisters return home since it brings the comfort of a family.
Yeom Je-Ho informs Gu Ja-Gyeong that the children relocated to Seoul after their mother passed away. He had always thought that he was responsible for looking after his family. But it wasn’t until his wife passed away that he understood his family was indeed looking after him. His wife dedicated her entire life to working at the farm, the factory, and then back at home while also taking care of their children. She finally died when her mind and body were unable to handle it any longer. Je-Ho is extremely sorry for not realising his wife and kids’ suffering at the appropriate time. He was relieved that his kids had moved out since they now had a chance at a better life. Yeom Je-Ho s confession did not give us many insights about why Gi-Jeong, Mi-Jeong, and Chang-Hee left, when he got married again, and how he got his arm crippled. These specifics will probably be discussed in later episodes. In Seoul, Gu Ja-Gyeong and Mi-Jeong eventually met. Gu Ja-Gyeong revealed his real name to her as the two resumed their romance. Let’s wait for the following episodes to find out what occurs next.
