On the other hand, despite being detained, Nam Han Joon managed to get Tae Soo’s DNA by punching him in the face. He then asked Han Jae Hee to hand it to his right-hand man, Gong Seo Chul, to have it examined.

Lo and behold, “Cafe Minandang” episode 10 showed the influential people from the government and conglomerates that are connected to Goo Tae Soo and are investors of Joyce Entertainment.

Due to a lack of evidence against the shaman, he was freed from detention. However, he declined Han Jae Hee’s offer for them to team up to prove that Goo Tae Soo was the culprit.
He advised the female officer to stick to what she’s best at: playing the good cop.
