- Book Intro
At the famous fortune teller house, "Minamdang, " there lives a shaman named Nam Hanjun, who has good looks, great eloquence and special ability to correctly tell the past, present and future.
However, Nam Hanjun has a secret. The truth is that he is a crooked fortune teller with no special powers at all! Nam Hanjun is a former profiler, utilizing even the slightest behaviors of his customers as hints. His team member, Nam Hyejun, steals the personal information of customers with his outstanding hacking skills, and Kim Sucheol makes full use of his intuition and the information gathering ability he developed as the boss of a detective agency.
To these three men, who were earning lots of money from upper class customers, comes a third generation chaebol with an astonishingly large amount of money. This person claims that his entertainment business has been doing particularly bad and he is suspicious of his right hand man, director Gu Taesu.
Because of money at stake, the members of Minamdang accept the task and start to collect information about the entertainment business. During the process, they cross paths with detective Han Yeeun, who is investigating the case of Gang Eunhye, a missing high school girl. Gang Eunhye was a trainee at the entertainment company. After the burnt body of Gang Eunhye is found, Minamdang and Han Yeeun team up. The four investigate further into the case and reveal the secret behind the entertainment business.
Gu Taesu has been controlling the entertainment business as well as the chaebol group itself using a fortune teller, Aunt Lim. The investigation even discovers evidences of an overseas gambling group operation, prostitution and lobbying. Celebrities and trainees were used for prostitution, and Gang Eunhye was sacrificed in this process.
With decisive evidence in their hands, the Minamdang members and Han Yeeun concentrate their investigation on Gu Taesu, and Gu gradually loses his composure. In the end, he lashes out in panic and launches an attack at Seoul Station for the purpose of completely removing evidences of his business and crimes. But the protagonists realize that this has all been directed by Aunt Lim, not Gu Taesu. The members of Minamdang and Han Yeeun rush to Seoul Station to stop Gu Taesu.
