The trailer reveals more about the theme of the show and we see how Joong-ki will not be playing the good guy but the bad one. He says in the trailer that only "evil can punish evil" and considering how he flees from a mafia conflict in Italy to arrive in Korea where there is more conflict, he may be the evil that would punish the rest. So how will he punish them and who will stand by his side?
