He pretends to be one of the guys who kidnapped her son and she receives the address again. Police soon follows.

Thus, they wait for Seo Ha’s arrival, once both the women arrives, Seo Ha is struck by her head and left there. The kidnappers bring her there and burry both of them inside the furnace.

Police sirens surround the place and Park Sang-Min gets shot in his legs again while pursuing Mr. Choi who now has the rifle. He’s then surrounded and surrenders.
Choi Sung-Jun sees his partner shot, he tells him his legs now are like this because Mr. Choi shot him so he should go and save the women. He goes there and sees the aunt noticed how everything just came crashing down and she’ll be caught for the murders, so she runs back into the burning building and dies while her son watches her crying.
