Episode Summary

Tough Guy Dongwa / The Competition

"Tough Guy Dongwa"

Dongwa is caught playing "tea party" with Ba-Do and is made fun of by the alleycats. Later, he rescues a Haiyo, an injured bird. But the alleycats thinks that anyone who befriends mice and birds are wimps (much to Han-Han's detestments), and he knows that he'll be rediculed if he's caught. Fearing being called a wimp, he tries to hide his friendship, only to hurt the feelings of the Haiyo, who runs away. Dongwa chases after him and apologizes. And when finally caught by the alleycats, he stands up for himself. Han-Han finds that Dongwa's a real Tough Guy. Just then, Ba-Do finds them and dresses them all up (heh, too bad animal rights groups doesn't exist 200 years ago ;) ). Meanwhile, Sagwa catches the hiccups, and nothing seems to work in making it go away, until she sees Dongwa, Haiyo and the alleycats in dresses.

"The Competition"

The Magistrate is attending a calligraphy competition and has enrolled Sagwa to compete in it. However, his rival, Magistrate Wong, is also attending the competition and has enrolled his daughter. Naturally, being rivals who pull pranks on each other since childhood, they both sabotage each other's competitors and in the end, both Sagwa and Wong's daughter are disqualified. Magistrate Wong and the Foolish Magistrate both make up in the end, and Sagwa and Wong's daughter are allowed into the contest once again. Unfortunately, they still lost - to a guy who has won 63 times straight (geez, this guy must be really chummy to the judges or something - ed). But since he's retiring, the next year would be easier. The show ends with both Magistrate Wong and the Foolish Magistrate pledging to not pull off foolish pranks and sabotage each other's works ever again.
