The fifth episode of "So I Married An Anti-Fan" begins where the previous episode ended. Lee Geun Young (Choi Soo Young) confronts her ex-boyfriend, Roy Ahn (Kim Hyung Min), who happens to be Hoo Joon's (Choi Tae Joon) close friend. This happened after the pair arrived at Roy's restaurant to shoot a scene for the reality series that the K-Pop star and the former journalist had signed up for.
During the confrontation, Roy mocks Geun Young for keeping the limited edition heels he gifted her and whispers to Hoo Joon how he knows Geun Young. Hoo Joon seemingly joins in the mocking, leading to Geun Young storming off, abandoning the heels in front of Roy's restaurant.

As usual, Geun Young's image continues to be manipulated by the reality show's producers on So I Married An Anti-Fan to show her as a caricatured anti-fan who just hates Hoo Joon. Geun Young is frustrated, and gets more so when they continue to shoot for the reality series, but Hoo Joon continues to put up a fake persona in front of the cameras. This is despite both Hoo Joon and Geun Young once again drinking into the night at Hoo Joon's agency's penthouse, where Geun Young is staying.
Later, Geun Young got into trouble when she used an expensive outfit, thinking it was one of her simple white shirts, to sweep the floor, leading her to continue facing Hoo Joon's cold remarks.

Unwilling to give up on her integrity by selling Hoo Joon out, she declines the offer and rushes to the airport, determined to continue doing So I Married An Anti-Fan.
