The production staff stated, “After Oh Bong Sam and Eulji Hae Yi create utter chaos in the courtroom, Oh Bong Sam doesn’t give up and plans to dig open Ki Chan Sung’s case. The three people’s relationship as well as the full story of the case will slowly be revealed through the drama, so please look forward to it.”
