Moo Gak is working undercover. He’s eaten several ramen cups, two cups of hot coffee and still eating while waiting for his suspect. Choi Moo Gak can’t feel is he is full, if something that he is eating is too hot or too cold or if he is sleepy. When the suspect arrived, Moo Gak is about to fight the suspect who is threatening him with a knife. The moment Moo Gak was about to attack his suspect he fell asleep.
Oh Cho Rim is working as a comedian. She is the last rookie the troupe and still doesn’t have any skits. She is just cleaning and doing errands for her superiors. One day one of her superiors sent her to bring them food. The superior appeared on TV and now is buy lunch for everyone.

She comes out of her car worried to see if the man she hit is alright. He is bleeding and he can’t move normally his hand, but still he said that he is alright. Moo Gak can’t feel the pain.
The suspect he was following runs away so Moo Gak gets into Cho Rim’s car and drives after him. She can’t let a stranger get her car so Cho Rim gets in the car also. Hearing that Moo Gak is a police officer that could charge her for hitting him, Cho Rim decided to help Moo Gak catch the culprit.
The suspect stopped and runs inside a building. He is a robber. Looking at the motorcycle the culprit was on, Cho Rim sees strange colors. She follows those colors to help Moo Gak. Inside the building she drags Moo Gak after her. They take the elevator that the robber took and entered a sauna. Moo Gak didn’t sees the culprits face and in that sauna everyone is wearing the same clothes so he wants to give up, but Cho Rim knows that the only place the robber was before washing is the locker room. Wearing Moo Gak’s clothes, Cho Rim together with Moo Gak enter the locker room. With Cho Rim’s help Moo Gak knows the number of the locker the robber is using.
Moo Gak:”I’m asking if you just robber a beauty salon.”
Later Cho Rim accompanied Moo Gak to see a doctor. There she found out that Moo Gak is suffering from analgesia, a disease that doesn’t allow the patient to feel the pain.
While leaving Moo Gak passes by the same man that he passed by the night his sister died. That man recognized Cho Rim also.
While waiting for their coffee at a coffee shop, Moo Gak is curious to know how Cho Rim knew where the robber was, but she can’t tell a complete stranger that she sees smells. When they were drinking coffee, Cho Rim is surprised that Moo Gak can drink so fast the hot coffee that burned her mouth.
When they were leaving a women stopped Cho Rim and called her “Choi Eun Seol”. Cho Rim, who can’t remember her real name thinks that the woman was mistaken. Hearing the name Choi Eun Seol, shocked Moo Gak, that was also his sister’s name.
