So Now The Question Is Why Shin Ha-Kyun Killed Mia’s Father?

The easiest answer is for the diamond. The reason David, Mia’s father’s friend, came to Mia’s house that day when Mia’s father was murder. Both David and Joong knew Mia’s father has the diamond. Joong killed him and took the diamond. And missed Mia. But David took Mia to sell instead of the diamond. Mia was under the bed, so she didn’t see the murderer’s face, but she just heard his voice, the person behind that voice was Shin Ha-Kyun.

Shin Ha-Kyun trained Mia; he knew that Mia would take revenge for her father’s murder. So he tried to escape from mia by making his fake death. He thought, if mia goes to take revenge for him and her father, she will die there, which we saw in the starting scene. But Mia killed them all and was caught by the police and handed over to Ming’s agency controlled. But the main twist is here, Ming knew all of it, and she takes care of Mia then. Stop Mia from escaping because she knew if Mia goes out, she will be killed. Ming trained Mia and make her kill her ex-husband and her father’s murderer Shin Ha-Kyun. Include: Mia had plastic surgery, so Shin Ha-Kyun didn’t recognize her for the first time, then he figured out her identity and tried to kill her daughter and her.
