The Midnight Romance in Hagwon Episode 5: Wi Ha-Joon discovers about Jung Ryeo-Won’s job offer

The latest episode (5) of The Midnight Romance in Hagwon began with Seo Hye-Jin and Lee Joon-Ho reflecting on their recent Teacher-Pupil Tag Team project failure. Their joint lecture only yielded one Heewon High School student, Lee Shi-Woo. The following day, Choi Hyeong-Seon held a briefing with Changyeong High School parents to get the school’s students admitted to her academy, Choiseon Korean.

Choi Hyeong-Seon tried to manipulate the parents by mocking Hye-Jin’s teaching style. Meanwhile, at Daechi Chase, director Kim Hyun-Tak asked Hye-Jin to take a break and join the task force for another branch opening. Assistant director Woo Seung-Hee asked Nam Cheong-Mi and Joon-Ho to share the Changyeong High School students. Hye-Jin realized that the academy was trying to play games after the recent joint lecture failure.

The next day, a few school teachers asked colleague Pyo Sang-Seob to reconsider making the exams textbook-based. He assured them of coming up with a solution. Meanwhile, back at Daechi Chase, Hye-Jin trained Cheong-Mi and Joon-Ho for their classes when they discussed how the academy acted against Hye-Jin. On the other hand, Hyeong-Seon met with student Shi-Woo, trying to persuade him to stay at Choiseon and not join Daechi Chase.

After attending Hye-Jin and Joon-Ho’s joint lecture, Shi-Woo was interested in learning more about Korean literature. Soon, Hye-Jin received a call from Hyeong-Seon, asking for a meeting. The two met at Choiseon Korean, where the latter offered Hye-Jin a lucrative job. Hyeong-Seon wanted to make Hye-Jin the assistant director at the academy if she would join and bring Changyeong High students. Hye-Jin realized this was because Shi-Woo decided to switch academies and asked for more time to think. 

At night, Hye-Jin met with Joon-Ho to inform him of what had happened. Joon-Ho asked if she felt excited by the job offer. Later, Hye-Jin confessed that although she didn’t like the offer, she felt she deserved it. The following morning, Hye-Jin received a contract from Hyeong-Seon. She met her lawyer friend, asking the latter to review the contract. Hye-Jin struggled to make a decision. She expressed feeling a difference between her current and past self.

Hye-Jin revealed that her old self would have jumped at the opportunity. But something changed in her after the joint lecture. Later, Joon-Ho asked her to meet at a park. He asked Hye-Jin to stay at Daechi Chase for a year before deciding. He promised to give her his students while seeking training from her.

After they reached the academy, Heewon High School student Lee Shi-Woo visited them. Director Hyun-Tak and the academy employees were excited about adding another high-profile school to their list. Hye-Jin asked Joon-Ho to counsel his first-ever student. Both Shi-Woo and Joon-Ho had a lengthy discussion, during which the latter managed to convince the student to switch to Daechi Chase.

The episode ended with Joon-Ho informing everyone that Shi-Woo had joined the academy with other Heewon High School students. They congratulated both Joon-Ho and Hye-Jin. Although their joint lecture only saw Shi-Woo, they still managed to bring an entire class of students to the academy.
