    • Synopsis
    • Perceived by the society as a schemer and the pyramid godfather, but as a savior and generous benefactor by his followers, One Network’s founder and chairman Jin Hyun-pil (LEE Byung-hun) is a complex character who controls a massive amount of funds by pulling the strings of some of the most powerful figures in Korean congress, media and court. Financial Crimes Unit’s Capt. Kim Jae-myung (GANG Dong-won) has been investigating Jin’s exploits with his team and is ready to move in on him. After discovering that Jin’s scheme was devised and maintained by software genius Park Jang-gun (KIM Woo-bin), Capt. Kim takes Park into custody and demands to cooperate in the investigation. Stuck between his loyalty to Jin and the threat of going to jail, Park is in a catch-22 situation. He soon realizes he could turn this predicament around for his benefit and take off with a large sum of money. But Jin is tipped off about a mole within his organization and searches desperately for the traitor.
