Her father then starts to rely on the leader of a religious cult, and she attempts to save him from the dangerous group. Sang Hwan first meets Sang Mi when she moves to Muji, and they go through a traumatizing event that makes him realize how weak he is. Three years later, he meets Sang Mi by coincidence and plans a strategy to get her out of the religious cult.
Woo Do Hwan, who is known for his role as the killer in movie Master, will play Seok Dong Chul, one of the unemployed friends of Taecyeons character.
