Dal Mi rings DoSan, but he does not answer her phone. Dal Mi finally barges in and requests a meeting with him in private. The two have a lot of past damages and scars to brush aside.

Dal Mi lays down her pride aside and hopes DoSan would do the same. Two discuss over a campfire, and DoSan asks her why she named her self driving car “Tarzen”?

If you are taking a wrong turn, they will not be able to advise you. And she further says they are more likely to take their investment back if they did not do well. She advises him to throw all those cards away and look around from the companies that he already knows yong San seems to have matured over the three years and he understands. 

He meets JiPayon and requests advice. Saying that he no longer blames Ji Payon about his brother’s death. And he says he wanted to put the blame on someone at that time. Ji Payon also apologises for his harsh words. Yong San says, this time he needs an honest direct answer to their problem.
