He realizes he must uncover the true culprit to exonerate himself.Byun noted this film sets itself apart from other thriller genre works as it also has a light-hearted sense throughout.“The film is both easygoing and also brings laughter. It’s a heavy topic but has a light sense to it, which makes it different from other thrillers,” he said.This film is the directorial debut for newcomer Kim Se-hwi, who took part in co-scripting the 2016 war action film “Operation 스포츠토토존 Chromite.”
