Jun (Kwon Sang-woo), a legendary former hitman on the NIS counterterrorism team with a passion for comic book making, decides to follow his dream and pretends he is dead while on a mission for the NIS.
Fifteen years later, Jun is now married to Mi-na (Hwang Woo-only-hye (en)) and has a daughter (Lee Ji-won). He writes full-time webcomics, but his comics aren't so popular that his current comic is canceled due to negative reviews. Furious at the news, he goes out at night and gets drunk while considering his daughter's advice to write a story about his own life. Under the influence of alcohol, he begins a comic strip about his former life as an NIS hitman. The next morning, plagued by a hangover, Jun realizes that the comic he made last night has been uploaded and contains classified sensitive information.
