Cha Dal Gun is an aspiring martial artist and stuntman who dreams of becoming an action actor. He’s skilful in several martial arts including Taekwondo, judo, jujitsu, kendo and boxing. Sadly, he is often rejected during castings due to his fear of being in front of the camera.
He gets involved in a tragic plane crash that also kills his nephew – whom he has raised on behalf of his dead brother – along with 24 other participants of a Taekwondo demonstration. Since then, no one has the audacity to bring up the case due to an untold scandal. Cha Dal Gun willingly tries to uncover the truth in order to stand up for his dead nephew’s rights.

Go Hae Ri is forced to become the head of the family to support her mom as well as her younger brother. In hopes of becoming a full-time police officer, she signs up to become an agent at the National Intelligence Service.
As the series uncover, she finds herself stuck between two life-threatening choices – where she has to choose between conscience or reality.
