Plot Summary Edit

In Budapest, Hungary, Kim Hyun-jun looks out over the city waiting. Suddenly he sees NSS Director Baek San coming up the walkway. Baek San tells Hyun-jun some devastating news and gives him a solo assignment: Assassinate North Korean Minister Yoon.

The mission is a success, but Hyun-jun finds it hard to escape North Korean security. Taking a rest after being shot by Park Cheol-young, Hyun-jun thinks back on how he got to this point.

Flashback to a few months before, when Hyun-jun was a soldier training in the 707th Special Mission Battalion and a part-time university student. While attending a American Government and Foreign Policy class, Hyun-jun catches interest in a young female student named Choi Seung-hee. But she does not seem to be interested in him. Nevertheless, Hyun-jun finds himself falling in love with her and brags about it to his best friend, a fellow soldier, named Jin Sa-woo.

Finally, Hyun-jun asks Sung-hee out and she agrees. He takes her out for drinks and shows off his amazing eidetic memory skills. Sung-hee can't help but be amazed. After getting drunk, Hyun-jun passes out and wakes up the next morning to find that Sung-hee has mysteriously disappeared. Days without word, Hyun-jun begins to wonder if he will ever see her again.

Meanwhile, Sa-woo meets up with an old friend who introduces him to a young woman, who just happens to be Sung-hee. Sa-woo immediately falls for her. To celebrate his new found love and to also help Hyun-jun get over his crush, Sa-woo and Hyun-jun sneak out of the base to go out for drinks.

The next night, mysterious men arrive at the base to take Hyun-jun and Sa-woo away. They are taken to an underground based where they are placed in separate rooms, bound to chairs, and injected with medical drugs. Struggling, Hyun-jun amazingly breaks loose and begins swinging a chair against the one-way mirror in his room. On the other side, Sung-hee and Baek San just watch.
