Pilot Week Recap
Master scammer Sa Do Chan (Jang Geun Suk) and his posse successfully defraud a gang member while pretending to be a prosecutor who looks exactly like him. But just as they are going outside the country, the gang confronts him to prove he is a real prosecutor.
The real prosecutor, Baek Jun Soo, apparently met a grave accident, and is yet to regain consciousness. He is working on a big case involving the usual secret group of corrupted rich men. Jun Soo’s junior, Oh Ha Ra, also stumbles onto her senior’s lookalike so when Sa Do Chan goes to the office to use Prosecutor Baek’s identity, she rides it, because she also needs him for an ulterior motive.
Ha Ra uses Sa Do Chan’s recent posing as a prosecutor, to get him agree to pose as Prosecutor Baek for an important deal that he needs to attend. They stage a scenario to steal the clue tipped by the informer. But Sa Do Chan who learned that a big sum of money is involved double-crosses the prosecutors on the day of the item retrieval.
Ha Ra tracks him down through a bug she placed on him, and learns that nothing is inside the box that they also get.
In the villains’ lair, the snitch is being tortured to reveal the location of the item. Since Prosecutor Baek is still unconscious, Ha Ra offers Sa Do Chan to continue with the charade in exchange for his friends’ jail freedom.
When their team gets involved on a drug case, Sa Do Chan acts on his own, not knowing that a trap has been cast by the villains who knew that Prosecutor Baek is tailing their activities. The same fiends are also behind the latter’s accident.
Sa Do Chan receives a hard blow from the baddies, and falls to the ground, just in time when the reinforcement arrives to rescue him.
