The next day, Kwang Su learns that the body he discovered is actually the son of a high ranking local politician who recently went missing. Kwang Su havingalready removed some of the corpse’s organs knows if he goes to the police he will become the primary murder suspect. Without having anywhere to turn, Kwang Su then lucks upon a flyer advertising the skills of a prominent detective named Hong Jin Ho. He immediately goes to Hong Jin Ho to ask for his help in finding the real murderer. Unfortunately for Kwang Su, Jin Ho has no desire to work on a murder case (he loathes danger) and quickly rebukes Kwang Su’s offer. Kwang Su doesn’t give up and eventually appeals to Jin Ho’s competitive senses as well as pointing out the large reward available for capturing the murderer.
