The story begins in a small village somewhere in South Korea. The name of the village is Goksung. There is nothing wrong with that town being quite a nice village. It is more peaceful because it is surrounded by forests and mountains and there are rivers and lakes. But these days, rumors have been circulating since an old Japanese man came to the village.

Then Jong-goo found out that the item he had brought from the old man’s house to show Jong-goo was one of Jong-goo’s daughter’s shoes…. ?
