      In the class he meets a quirky girl, Se-bin, and finds himself drawn to her mysterious charms.
      Despite his determination to wipe the slate clean, Du-heon is summoned back into the criminal fold by his old colleagues to stop his successor expanding the mob business into prostitution and drug-dealing.
      But there’s more to the girl from the cooking class than meets the eye: Se-bin is a contract killer hired by the new boss. She keeps a close eye on Du-heon and watches for an opportunity to take him out.
      However, she comes into conflict with herself as she grows attached to him.
      When her friend and partner, Eun-jeong, is kidnapped by the new boss,
      she suggests that she kill Du-heon in exchange for her friend’s safe return.
      On a vast salt farm, Se-bin and Du-heon come face to face in a final showdown.
