But he can never live up to the standards of Guen Ho, his smart, older brother, so he runs away from home and finds success working as a disguise artist.

He decides to take on his brother’s identity as a police officer and track down his brother’s killer.
As Guen Bae takes on the most important disguise of his life, he must try to fool Guen Ho’s fiancée, fellow police officer Woo Kyung Hee (Park Hyo Joo). As Kyung Hee investigates a mysterious suicide case, both she and Guen Bae are led to the sinister workings of Han Seung Won (Sean Dulake), who has his own reasons for trying to make money off of poor and desperate people.
