A bank, that the Korean government holds equity in, is on the verge of bankruptcy. The country is worried that they will soon face another financial criss similar to what happened in 1997. People in the Financial Services Commission struggle to prevent another similar incident.

Chae Yi-Hun (Ko Soo) is a chief in the Economic Policy Bureau at the Financial Services Commission. He does his best as an economic bureaucrat. His father is the best economist in South Korea, but Chae Yi-Hun hides the identity of his father.

Heo Jae (Lee Sung-Min) is the chairman of the Financial Services Commission. He is an ambitious man. He experienced the Korean Financial Crisis in 1997. At that time, he became disillusioned with the powerless Korean financial infrastructure. His objective is to improve the country’s financial infrastructure at any cost.
