In the six months following his release from prison, Eun-kyul found himself fired from 24 part-time jobs. Desperate and trapped in abject poverty, he reluctantly joined a contract murder for a meager chance at survival. However, as he awakened to reality, he realized he had unwittingly become entangled with an unknown beast.
“How did you stumble upon this path?” Eun-kyul, a survivor who believed in the mantra of staying alert even in the face of danger, managed to overcome the crisis. Yet, faced with an unimaginable offer, he was left with a life-altering choice. The enigmatic figure, offering a staggering 10 billion won, demanded the assassination of his own father and the chairman of the powerful Myung-il group. “Whether it’s a house or a car, it’s yours to claim.”
Thus, a bittersweet alliance formed between a 23-year-old head of household burdened with responsibility and a lone wolf with a mysterious past. As their journey unfolds, the lines between loyalty and betrayal blur, and the true nature of their companionship is tested. Will Eun-kyul succumb to the allure of wealth and power, or will he find the strength to defy his circumstances and forge his own path? The tale of this unlikely duo holds both sweetness and bitterness, as they navigate a world where survival and personal desires collide.
