The story follows a regular part-timer named Lee Tang and a detective named Jang Nam Gam. One day, Lee Tang argued with a drunk man; he hit him with a hammer and caused the man to die.
After the event, he feels guilty and scared. However, later he found out that the man he unintentionally killed was a serial killer. He then justified his action and said that the man “deserves to die.”
Further, after his first time killing the man who “deserves to die,” with no witnesses or evidence, he then accidentally becomes a serial killer. Although all his victims happen to be perpetrators, will Lee Tang be able to make a difference in his action as a serial killer or a hero?
