A flashback, 10 years ago,
A woman in a heavy snow while walks to her home suddenly see a girl crying for help. When asked about her whereabouts, she cried and tells that her car got crashed and his father is struggling for life. The woman went on to help the girl and looks for the car, when she approaches the car and tried to help his father, the father hit her head and she is killed before the little girl. The girl was crying after seeing all this and though reluctant, it seems that she is an accomplice.
After a day, for the second time, the cops found a headless body inside water. She had a mark on her fingers like other victims. But one or two so far, a total of innocent 18 people of different ages were murdered in a row and the police suspects serial killing and the killer is named “head hunter”. Even after a year, they is no progress in the investigation and the murder continues.
The whole nation is in anger and the president now take over the issues under his observation.
To avoid recurrence, the government even tries to pass a bill of conduction DNA tests for all the foetus as a scientist named Daniel, a British korean, claims that a human become psychopath due to a presence of mutated genes which does not have MAOA genes that controls human emotions. So, by forcing abortion, he claimed that the world can avoid their existence itself. But, it’s illegal to have abortion in Korea and forced abortions without consent is callous and against human rights. But, that terrible Bill was not passed as it fails to secure votes.
The scientist Daniel meets his old friend, his pregnant wife and enjoys some quality time. It seems that they are too victims of serial killer. Jennifer, his friend would-be is killed before 7 years and the culprit is yet to be found.
Then the heart wrenching scene of a family murder happens.

The mother, to save her children sacrifices herself and the first child in order to protect his little brother got brutally killed by the Psycho. This scene is not for light-hearted and watching all these scenes and dialogues, I presume this is going to be a very serious psychopath drama! With 1st half over in 1st episode, I haven’t seen any of the Main characters.
The little brother is safe and the older one is admitted in ICU. When the police whose daughter is also missing forced the little brother for information. The little one claimed that he sees the murderer and its him. But who Is he? The scene ends.
