Later on, they plan on robbing the Guru. The Guru was so startled to have a gun pointed at him that he choked on the rice cake that he was eating and lost consciousness. The two thieves panicked and hid his body in storage room.

This condition is that they introduce him to the Guru. He knows that Seon Dal was not the real Guru, because he already knows what the man looks like.
