Hwang Dae-myung will be suspected of having a connection with a mysterious cultural property thief known as Skunk. He then joins an unofficial cultural asset recovery team named Karma to hunt down the thief and fight those who cannot be judged by the law.

Hwang Dae-myung is known to be a bit lazy, taking naps while on the job, and is only excited to use all his vacation leaves. He enjoyed a relaxed life until the treasure thief, Skunk, emerged.

The newly released first teaser begins with the entrance of a shrouded figure dressed in a specialized suit. Decked out in a black mask, the figure is revealed to be the most suspicious thief known as Skunk. 

All that the police know about Skunk is that he steals Korea’s cultural assets that high-ranking members of society have gotten their hands on illegally.

Skunk captivates with thrilling action scenes as he crashes into a window by swinging through with a rope, but danger awaits every corner as his identity is precariously close to being revealed.

Skunk shares, “There won’t be another chance if it can’t be found today.” A man also points his gun at Skunk and asks, “Who are you?” The teaser concludes with a brief look beneath Skunk’s mask as he states, “Let’s get started.”
