San and Goo Hyung are repairing the railing in the living room, Goo Hyung tells San that he should be more careful while he punching people in the house. San asks how it would be different and Goo Hyung tells him he should have simply punched them the other way. They manage to get it aligned and San is nailing the post down, they continue bickering over the aftermath when Gyeo Wool comes in. She asks if they are almost done and they tell her they are, she tells them something looks off and knocks the railing off. Thankfully the doorbell saves her from being killed by the 2 men.

A father, Kim Sung Gyu, sits with them to hire them find the person who killed his son. Goo Hyung tells him that if it’s about a murder he is best to contact the police.  Sung Gyu tells them that it can’t be proved to be murder, but it was, this confuses all 3 of them. He explains that his son had an internet show where he ate on camera for a living. Something clicks in Gyeo Wool’s mind and she pulls up and article about a man who died while streaming and found out that it was about his son, Kim Wook.

Gyeo Wool explains that people would stream online and they would pay in a currency called stars which could be switched into money. San wonders how much money they could earn and Gyeo Wool tells him that some people get millions of views on a video  and can earn a lot of money. Sung Gyu admits that he thought his son made a living trading stocks since he spent so much time in front of the computer.

The night that he died someone offered him 300,000 stars (3 million won) to eat all his food in 3 minutes. Sung Gyu holds that person responsible for his son’s death. He explains that he drives a cab so he never had time to spend with him, and he could never do anything for him. All he wants is a sincere apology.

The trio watched some of Wook’s videos, Goo Hyung and Gyeo Wool both find this odd and weird. San tells then that there is a reason for it and they shouldn’t call it weird just because they don’t get it. Gyeo Wool mentions that she never sees San eat, and he tells her that he eats. She asks when, and Goo Hyung saves him and tells her that he eats like a pig, he only eats dinner and his portion is huge. She starts chastising  him telling him that they should eat together. When Goo Hyung notices Se Ra’s image on the site.

Se Ra comes over and performs her opening for her show IRL. San asks her if she’s heard anything about Kim Wook’s death, and she asks if he means the President. She explains that there are some viewers who a big spender on the site, and the president is the viewer who spends the most. Se Ra remembers that the president’s screen name is Dokko Gugum.She tells them that there will be a commemorative show with the top creators, and the top creator of the evening will get his money that was suppose to go to Wook. Goo Hyung asks her if she’s participating, and she admits that she can’t since she has a synchronized swimming meet that day.

On the way to the set of the commemorative show; Goo Hyung plays Se Ra’s intro repeatedly and it’s driving them up the wall. Gyeo Wool admits that she doesn’t understand Dokko Gugum, why who he offer 200,000 stars to the top creator and call it a commemorative show. She also mentions that inviting a bunch of strangers to a house in the middle of nowhere sounds like a plot to a movie. San stops and everyone gets out, and Sung Gyu is had already arrived.

The trio gets introduced to the creators:

  • Sin Sun – talkshow host
  • Judy – from aphrodite, and a fitness streamer
  • Cook Young – A chief
  • Mi Sho – from pretty angel, a makeup guru

Producer Im tells him that they are missing someone and Detective Park comes in (the funnel who eats) and is shocked to see them there. San, Park and Goo Hyung go outside to talk. Goo Hyung can’t believe that he runs his own internet show, but San reminds him that they can now work with Park on the investigation. Park asks what they are trying to achieve by Dokko Gugum since they can’t really arrest him. San tells him that the father really just wants an apology rather than and sentencing.

Producer Im walking through the set up with San, and the equipment that is present, and how to talk with the creators in each of their rooms. Right before the show is to start everyone was eating and Park shared some of his food. Goo Hyung asks if he’s sick, and he tells him that food is made for sharing. Gyeo Wool compares that two of them and Goo Hyung tells her not to compare the two of them. Judy asks what they plan on doing after they catch Dokko Gugum. San tells them that they are only there to identify him. Park likens them to Sherlock but credits the work to Agatha Christie. Goo Hyung asks him if Agatha Christie wrote Sherlock Holmes, he ask what Conan Doyle wrote, but Park tells him that he was a investigator. Goo Hyung tells him that he is a disgrace. Sin Sun asks if Dokko Gugum did something wrong since they are looking for him. Sung Gyu gets up and leaves and San follows.

San explains that he understands that he’s feeling uncomfortable, but he explains that everyone who is there is his son’s friend and colleague so he shouldn’t feel awkward. Sung Gyu tells him that they are all there for the money and not really for his son. Wook was always overweight which caused him to be teased at school, so he had hoped that this job had given him the chance to meet some friends.

Judy bumps into Mi Soh and she tells her to stop acting so cute. Mi Soh tells her that she is always that cute, and Judy asks if a person so cute could diss her on air and steal her viewers. Mi Soh tells her that blaming her for her poorly managing her show is pathetic. She also tells her that she shouldn’t have met with Dokko Gugum for more money or let a small gym sponsor her show.

Gyeo Wool and Goo Hyung go outside and find Sin Sun waiting for his guests. Sin Sun asks Gyeo Wool if she would like to be on his show and Goo Hyung asks is he didn’t want a pretty guest instead. 4 girls of Flash arrive and Sin Sun asks Goo Hyung to take a picture of them together.

Producer Im is taking a call and tells the person on the other end that there are investigators there. As soon as San comes closer he tells the manager that he will call him back. San asks if they would be able to get the viewers details from this location, and Producer Im tells him that even with the best equipment it would be heard. San inquires about his knowledge of Dokko Gugum, and he admits that he only knows the basics. He tells San that Dokko Gugum is the top backer of their creators which allows them to not need to support them as much, but there doesn’t mean that they don’t take responsibility, hence why some of the proceeds will be given to Wook’s family. Producer Im excuses himself and San knows something is wrong.

Park starts talking with Mi Soh and tells her she has a lot of things. She admits that she finds she is still missing a thing. Park offers to help her get whatever it is that she’s missing, and help in anyways. Goo Hyung tells him to stop talking and Mi Soh admits that she would like Gyeo Wool’s help during the stream. While Gyeo Wool helps Mi Soh, Goo Hyung helps Detective Park.

All the shows start and San is in the viewing room, and he asks Producer Im if Dokko Gugum will actually come. He confirms that he should since he’s the one who invited them there. Sung Gyu starts getting impatient and San tells him that they have to wait but he will come, he tells San that he needs to go for a walk. Dokko Gugum first appears in Mi Soh’s chat room, right after She finishes Gyeo Wool’s makeup. She asks her to draw it out as long as possible while she starts the tracking.

As soon as Dokko Gugum is no longer in the chat room, Goo Hyung, Gyeo Wool and San congregate in the production room. They ask how the tracking is going and she tells them that it’s going to take her a while yet. Goo Hyung asks what’s on her face and Gyeo Wool  tells him that she didn’t want Mi Soh to touch her makeup and was planning on removing it. San tells her that it looks good and she looks pretty. Goo Hyung tells her that it looks odd and she hits him, and he says that’s better. San and Goo Hyung both agree that she looks really pretty but the normal her is better.

Hours later Dokko Gugum pops up in Judy’s chat room briefly and Gyeo Wool tries the trace again. Dokko Gugum starts bouncing from Judy’s video, to Sin Sun’s, to Park’s, to Mi Soh’s and finally to Cook Young’s. Goo Hyung complains that he really knows how to keep them on their toes. San asks if there was a way they could chat with him, and Producer Im hands him a keyboard and mouse. San opens a chat and Goo Hyung wants to chat with Dokko Gugum. San goes to move, but Goo Hyung tells him that he needs to do the typing because he can’t type, so San sits back down. Goo Hyung tells him to type what he tells him too. It first start normally and then he has San provoke him by insulting him. Gyeo Wool tells them they need more time so they need to prolong it. San asks why he spends his money so frivolously because it seems crazy. Dokko Gugum tells him that he’s not the crazy one because the creators who want his money are doing all of this for his attention. He admits that he enjoys watching people fall apart trying to get his money. San asks if he’s sane and Dokko Gugum asks back, is anyone sane. Gyeo Wool finds that IP address and it leads them to the house they are in. All of a sudden the power goes out.

Judy screams and they run to her room. So see’s the blood and look to the knife on the ground. Park mentions that it’s the same type of knives that Young Cook uses. San mentions that it would be really dumb to use your own knife for the crime. San asks Judy what happened and she tells her that as soon as the power went out she stood still, someone came in her room and escaped via the window.

San leaves the room and Goo Hyung and Park trail after him. Outside San spots a blood trail and stops, he sees a body being dragged. Park asks if it’s always like this. Goo Hyung notices San’s glowing eyes and asks Park if he thinks that the culprit went a certain away, so he would face away from San. San continues to follow the blood trail to see the body dragged into the building. He asks his 2 companions what they think the building was for and he walked towards it.

Gyeo Wool and the rest of the creators are in a room until the power comes back on. The producer believes that no one is missing, but Gyeo Wool advises them that Sung Gyu is missing. She calls Goo Hyung to tells him.

San overhears the phone call and steels himself into finding Sung Gyu in the warehouse. They open the door and Dokko Gugum is hanging from his neck and on fire while Sung Gyu was tied to a chair. Park tries to put out the fire and San unties Sung Gyu.

Back in the house San asks Sung Gyu to tell him what really happened, and he keeps telling him that he is. San tells him that if he had the bag over his head like he claimed he wouldn’t have been able to see Dokko Gugum hanging himself, but he tried to tell him he heard him. San tells him that he also saw a trail of blood outside the warehouse and if he was the one to being dragged like he claimed than he should be bleeding but he’s fine. San tells him that he say the tire pressure and assumed that he had brought him in the trunk, then he simply asked why. Sung Gyu tells them that originally he didn’t want to kill him but when he picked him up in his taxi he told him that he wanted an apology. Dokko Gugum told him he wouldn’t apologizes and shifted the reason for Wook’s death to him. He got really mad and ended up killing him by mistake.

San mentions that he finds it odd that Dokko Gugum always made sure to keep his identity hidden. Producer Im told him that even with the best equipment it would be hard to find him, so someone who knew his identity must have told him. San stands in front of Judy, he tells her that he saw the cut on her arm, and it is angled in such a way that it couldn’t have been made by someone in front of her. He also tells her that it gave them just enough time to go and see Dokko Gugum die. Judy admitted to telling Sung Gyu Dokko Gugum’s identity. She met with him once for more money and he made her have sex with him. She wanted revenge no matter the method. Detective Park arrests both of them.

Yoo Jin goes to a public phone and calls San. When he picks up she doesn’t say anything for a while before warning him to be careful. She hangs up and San calls back right away. Yoo Jin just stares at the phone until it stops ringing. San is in shock that he received a call from her.
