It all has to do with him only focusing on solving cases, while his actions are completely controversial because it crosses the line between good and evil. Woo Tae Suk crosses paths with a female psychopath, Eun Sun Jae (Lee Seol) but he cannot arrest her because of lack of evidence. The woman eventually decides to help Woo Tae Suk solve other cases.
It is a crime drama about the psychological games between a detective with a strong sense of justice but tormented by the crimes he solves, and a genius woman who is insensitive to her own death.
