- Book Intro
It's 1937, and the streets in Shanghai are chaotic with people who seem like beasts. One day, a guy with a strange badge on his jacket comes up to Jihan, a secret agent who fought for the independence of Joseon. The guy tells Jihan that he is on the list of time-travel immigrants and will soon meet death, shooting himself before Jihan. As the guy said, Jihan is shot dead on the 5th day of May in 1937, but then immediately enters the future.
There, Jihan is brought into a society managed by artificial intelligence and an up-to-date security system. But even in this society, murder, even serial murder takes place, which is something that is unlikely to happen in a place like this. Jihan becomes aware that someone has taken him from the past to the future and delves into the serial murder case to find the truth about himself.
