Isoo started a fight with the stranger. The stranger raised a knife against Isoo, but Isoo had a knack for fighting bad guys. He kept attacking the stranger. Isoo officially trained for Masters of martial arts in the past; he effortlessly took care of the bad guy.
The stranger got fed up with the fights, and Isoo also got tired, but Lee Kang Hyun suddenly came to the spot and started beating Isoo. The miscommunication caused quite a mess. Isoo was seen in SWAT costume, and this caused suspension for Lee Kang Hyun. She thought he is a fraud and assaulted a civilian. She locked him for a special assault case.
Isoo tried his best to prove that he is not the accused; he is innocent and fought for self-defense. Kang Hyun at first didn’t believe him, but she checked for a knife at the crime spot, and she found one. She then confirmed that Isoo is totally innocent. But things got out of hand because the police department caught the wrong culprit. Isoo’s father is trying for the mayor position, and this incident caused many political problems.
The pilot episode ended with Isoo’s lawyers suggesting a new way to put this conflict in a good way. They asked the police department to conduct a press meet saying Isoo is a detective working for the police department on a special basis for the last few months; whatever rumors came out regarding the assault issue are completely false.
To get rid of the mess, police officers accepted the request from Hansu Group. Now Isoo became a real cop working for the official police department. After the announcement, the police department gave a warm welcome to Isoo at the end of the first episode.
