Hunted down

Yoon Ji Woo was bullied in high school not only by her classmates, schoolmates, even her homeroom teacher asked her to transfer school. Everything started because her father was being listed by the national police as a wanted criminal and police officers have been following her in and out.

Resenting her father who became uncontactable, he visits her on the day of her birthday and even ordered a cake delivered. Before he can step into the house, gunshots were fired in the hallway and alarmed Ji Woo.

To protect his daughter, Yoon Dong Hoon (Yoon Gyung Ho) prevents Ji Woo from opening the door for all his might and keeps asking her to stay in the house. Through the peephole, Ji Woo saw a man holding a gun, head-to-toe covered in black with a black hoodie and mask. After a while, a man with a similar outfit tries to peep in through the same peephole. It was Cha Gi Ho, a police officer.

No leads, mysterious murderer

After that incident, even drugged, she managed to get herself out of the situation. Moo Jin gave her a new identity and told everyone else that Ji Woo was dead. Ji Woo then goes by Oh Hye Jin and even entered the police force. Another step closer to the truth.

A few years later, she finally got approval to be transferred to the drug investigation unit, one that leads by Cha Gi Ho, her prime suspect. Her new partner at work Jeon Pil Do (Ahn Bo Hyun) became closer to her after seeing her capability. For the first time, she developed another kind of emotion that is positive.
