More peddlers start coming to Wonsan after seeing Bongsam’s round robin. Bongsam, feeling responsible, goes to the Peddlers’ Guild to ask for hope, but finds out that even the Peddlers’ Guild is conspiring with Yuguijeon. Bongsam decides to run for the Head Peddlers’ position of Gyeonggi-do Imbang, but Shin Seokju makes Gil Sogae run for the same position to stop Cheon Bongsam.
To be elected as Chief Peddler, Gil Sogae starts bribing branches of Peddlers’ Guild. Seondol finds out Gil Sogae is bribing the branches, but is injured badly.
In the meantime, Bongsam finds out that Seorin’s pregnant and thinks that the baby might be his. Shin Seokju orders Gil Sogae to kill Cheong Bongsam to secure his secret about the baby.
