Song Ha Young is a profiler of the Criminal Behavior Analysis team at Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s (SMPA) Scientific Investigation division. Although he appears to lack emotions, he’s a man who reads more deeply into humans than anyone else.

The drama is based on the 2018 non-fiction book of the same title co-written by Korea’s first criminal profiler Kwon Il Yong and Ko Na Mu, which tells the story of Kwon’s field experiences.
