Unfortunately, things went in favor of Matthew Lee after he captured all seven. He offered to face their deaths or go with him to be his pawn. All six except Do Hyuk joined hands with Matthew Lee.

As a result, Do Hyuk had to face his death, but thankfully, Kang Ki Tak saved him right before the building exploded.

In the last scene, Kang Ki Tak, who was carrying Do Hyuk, jumped out of the building while Matthew Lee witnessed the burning building.

The question is, how will Kang Ki Tak and Do Hyuk survive the assassination?
