Why Does Ji Hoon Become A Car Dealer?

Ma Ri got drunk while listening to Ji Hoon’s story from Ye Jin. Ye Jin called Ji Hoon to pick up Ma Ri because she is his probationary employee, and he should take her responsibility. Ma Ri becomes emotional and passes out in Ji Hoon’s car. The next day, Ma Ri acts kindly to Ji Hoon, which he finds weird. She offers to make him coffee and even smiles at him, but Ji Hoon tells her to stop buttering him.


Ji Hoon’s manager Mu Jang wants to buy a new van for himself and sees an advertisement on the internet about used vehicles. Ma Ri tells him to be careful about getting scammed, but he is confident that he won’t get scammed because he works at a lawyer’s office. Mu Jang dresses up as a mechanic and takes a test drive of the van he wants to buy. He gets ready to buy the van, but the dealer starts telling him that the van has many issues.

Mu Jang ends up buying another van without taking a test drive, which breaks down soon. He goes back to demand a refund, but the owner of the warehouse straight-up denies it. Many people have been scammed in this way, and the chain of scammers has spread over the country. The prosecutor’s office wants to catch the head of this scammer group, and Ye Jin now leads the case. Mu Jang doesn’t show up at the office for two days because he is afraid to face Ji Hoon.


Ji Hoon goes to Mu Jang’s home and finally gets hold of him. He tells him that he will get his refund and asks him for details of his dealer. Ji Hoon calls his dealer and meets him to buy the same van. The dealer follows the same procedure and tells Ji Hoon to buy another car because the one he drove for the test has issues. However, Ji Hoon refuses to buy any other car and starts pestering the dealer to sell him the van.

The dealer runs away, but Ma Ri catches him and interrogates him about the scam. The dealer asks Ji Hoon to forgive him because he is a young guy who knows nothing better. Ji Hoon is ready to forgive him only if the dealer helps him become a dealer as well. Ji Hoon doesn’t only want to get back Mu Jang’s money but also help all the other people who were scammed. The dealer introduces Ji Hoon and Ma Ri to his boss, and he allows them to be the dealers.
