Pontifex Lembrary (Kim Min-Kyu) is widely regarded as having the most powerful divine power ever. While he fights against a devil, he gets transferred to a different world.

The group has been together for 3 years, but they are on the verge of disbanding due to their lack of success. 9 hours later, Pontifex Lembrary is placed on a stage with Wild Animal for a live performance at a broadcasting station. When the music begins to play, Pontifex Lembrary, in Woo Yeon-Woo’s body, shouts out "I don't know how to dance."
