“365” will be a fantasy mystery thriller where people get the chance to go back in time by one year but unexpectedly run into a situation that changes their fate. 10 people go back in time by exactly one year, but mysterious situations start to arise when their fates are changed and twisted in the process.

It’s been seven years since the change, and he’s a talented individual who always knows how to relax, catching up with webtoons when he’s doing surveillance work. Though he is happy at first to have the chance to go back in time by one year and “reset” his life, he begins to search for the truth when a series of mysterious events befall on the group of people he goes back in time with.
