Kim Seong-tae locked Han Ji-young in the basement and injected poison gas in the room. But he gave up halfway and carried Han Ji-young upstairs. After making it out, Han Ji-young suspects that his wife, Seo Hi-soo, is behind it. That’s why he immediately strangled Seo Hi-soo’s neck when he met at Cadenza.
Meanwhile, Butler Joo (played by Park Sung-yeon) who caught the incident immediately hit Han Ji-young’s head with a fire extinguisher. That’s why Han Ji-young and Seo Hi-soo ended up falling downstairs. While Seo Hi-soo was rescued, Han Ji-young died instantly in the scene.
