When the spy begins leaking top secret intel that could jeopardize national security,
the two units are each assigned to investigate each other.

In the end, they must deal with an unthinkable plot to assassinate the South Korean president. Then begins a terrible race against time. The situation of the two Koreas is on the verge of implosion and the two agents, during their investigation, will unearth heavy secrets that threaten to overturn the history of the country.
