It can be recalled that the people around the chairman thought that the old man had died and planned on taking all his money. However, “The Escape of the Seven” episode 5 featured that this is the only beginning of his revenge.

He asked the help of Kang Ki Tak to help him escape prison and, at the same time, help Bang Da Mi’s adoptive father get out of prison.

After his surgery at the hospital, Kang Ki Tak pulled some strings to help him execute the switch between Chairman Bang and Lee Hwi So.

As for this, Chairman Bang was the one who stayed in prison, posing as Lee Hwi So, while the real Lee Hwi So is out to start his revenge.

According to Chairman Man, the only person who could take revenge is none other than Bang Da Mi’s adoptive father.

As part of Lee Hwi So’s plan, he changed his identity and lived as Matthew Lee, the founder of the biggest mobile platform company in South Korea.
