The car has been decorated with a few red bows, and Chae-rok is supposed to drive it and park it so it “stands out” to the person he’s going to gift it to. Chae-rok seems shocked over having to drive such a piece of junk and says he’s barely driven, but then the Chae-rok is actually trying to drive.
“Who is getting this special gift? We learn that (boong boong) is accident-free for over 30 years”

Chae-rok drives the car as they reach their destination, It’s a miracle they make it to their destination, it’s Eun-ho’s workplace. Deok-chul presents “boong boong” to his granddaughter, as his gifts while Chae-rok is struggling to drive the car towards them.
