The Penthouse S2 promises more mystery as twists and turns entertain audiences in episodes 3 and 4 of the new season of the buzzworthy makjang drama. So far we know, Ha Yoon Chul (Yoon Jong Hoon) and Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene) have returned to The Hera Palace as a married couple, agitating Cheon Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) and Joo Dante (Uhm Ki Joon) with their presence. We also get to know that Oh Yoon Hee acted as a proxy for Cheon Seo Jin during her solo concert, leaving Cheon Seo Jin shocked. Now we move onto more action in episode 3 and 4 of The Penthouse S2.

In episode 3 it is revealed that Oh Yoon Hee installed spyware on Seo Jin’s phone in the past, using an opportune time to spy on everything she’s doing. She also falsely planted Park Young Ran ( the woman who was originally supposed to sing for Cheon Seo Jin). Oh Yoon Hee sneers at Seo Jin promising that she would bring about her downfall and avenge Shim Su Ryeong's death. Meanwhile, Ha Eun Byeol (Choi Ye Bin) sneaks out of her house to meet a mystery man late in the night. The mystery man is none other than Joo Seok Hoon (Kim Young Dae). The two have teamed up together to break up Joo Dante and Cheon Seo Jin's relationship. Ha Eun Byeol still has feelings for Joo Seok Hoon, who rebuffs her advances saying he only wants to avenge his father and Seo Jin. In an important flashback, we see Yoon Hee confess to Bae Rona that she pushed Min Seol A from the top. Bae Rona is shocked and angry with her mother and Yoon Hee promises that she will settle scores with Cheon Seo Jin and Joo Dante.

As fate would have it, Ro-Na returns to Korea and decides to re-enroll at Cheong A Arts School. She immediately helps Yoo Je Ni (Jin Ji Hee) while the others are bullying her, but  Min-Hyuk (Lee Tae Bin) falls and slips on coke, and breaks his arm. This spells future trouble for Bae Rona.

In episode 4 Joo Dante tricks Cheon Seo Jin's secretary, Mr DO into revealing the proxy-singer plan and guffaws at Cheon Seo Jin's sorry state of affairs. Meanwhile, Seo Jin and Dante have a fancy date planned at his penthouse. Yoon Chul shows up at SeoJin’s penthouse and starts kissing her. With them both in each other’s arms, Dante shows up but Seo Jin manages to hide Yoon Chul in the closet. Someone photographs them in a compromising position together. It is revealed that it is Ha Yoon Chul's plan to break up the couple. Meanwhile, at school, Seok Kyeong throws red coloured water on Bae Rona and calls her and Yoon Hee, Shim Su Ryeong's 'Murderer'. Bae Rona and Yoo Jeni are locked in the bathroom, just before their preliminary exams. Yoo Jeni accuses Bae Rona of making her life miserable and tries to stop her from leaving. Bae Rona escapes through a broken window and reaches her exam. She declares that she is being bullied by Ha Eun Byeol and Joo Seok Kyeong, Jeni counters that statement and declares Bae Rona to be a liar. At the school violence committee, however, Jeni takes a stand for Bae Rona and exposes Seok Kyeong who is suspended on disciplinary grounds. Rona thanks Joo Seok Hoon for saving her as he tries to maintain his tough stance in front of her.

Towards the end, we see Joo Seok Kyeong laying her hands on Ha Eun Byeol's phone and discovers the video of Cheon Seo Jin murdering her father. She blackmails Seo Jin into gifting her the Cheong A Arts trophy. The door is left wide open for what’s going to happen next.
