Set in 1910, talented medical student Kwang-Su (Ryu Deok-Hwan) roams around a wooded area at night looking for animal corpses to practice his surgical procedures upon. To Kwang-Su’s surprise he discovers a naked human corpse and he immediately proceeds to take the body home. The next day, Kwang-Su learns that the body he discovered is actually the son of a high ranking local politician who recently went missing. Kwang-Su having already removed some of the corpse’s organs knows if he goes to the police he will become the primary murder suspect. Without having anywhere to turn, Kwang-su then lucks upon a flyer advertising the skills of a prominent detective named Hong Jin-Ho (Hwang Jung-Min). He immediately goes to Hong Jin-Ho to ask for his help in finding the real murderer. Unfortunately for Kwang-Su, Jin-Ho has no desire to work on a murder case (he loathes danger) and quickly rebukes Kwang-Su’s offer. Kwang-Su doesn’t give up and eventually appeals to Jin-Ho’s competitive senses as well as pointing out the large reward available for capturing the murderer.
