Since her part-time partner was injured and requires rest time, she is in need of another human that possesses the capability. In Bum fits into it perfectly and his powers might be able to help Ji Ah’s mother to break free and leave peacefully. They entered into the partnership for 1 month, for In Bum it’s about the payout, and Ji Ah sees it as a hope.

Even through In Bum is a con artist and make people believe in ghost, he is one that does not believe in it. He started working with Ji Ah and working hours are usually past midnight. He realized the use of the special necklace that his late uncle left him and start to reflect on things that happened to him while he was growing up.

Intertwined fate

In Bum and Ji Ah partner up more and more for several cases and the special thing is that In Bum is the one receiving the memories of the spirit instead of Ji Ah who is the exorcist. Living in the subconsciousness of the spirit is the aftermath, some are good but some are bad. Both of them have the impression of the same night but a different ending.

In Bum remember Ji Ah’s mother is trying to kill his uncle. Whereas Ji Ah has the impression that In Bum’s uncle killed her mother. When Ji Ah’s memory got unlocked level by level, she realized that she is the real murderer that killed her mother due to the egg ghost.

Egg Ghost

One that is faceless and the only way to destroy it is to stab right into the heart of the human that was possessed by it. Ji Ah’s mother sacrifices herself for the young In Bum who was possessed by an egg ghost. To totally destroy it, she begged Ji Ah to help her. The helpless young Ji Ah was shocked by the scene and not intended, but killed her mother.

Egg ghost was in the history documents by several generations of exorcist, just when they assumed that they will not meet one. The egg ghost reappear and went straight into In Bum’s body.


How will they get rid of the egg ghost in the end? Will Ji Ah manage to send her mother off in the afterworld?
