Oh Sangwoo, a charming and smooth talker Korean college student, who turns out to be a sadistic serial murderer, kidnaps Yoon Bum, a strange and exiled man, who has been obsessively stalking him. The story starts developing when Bum decides to enter Sangwoo's house when he's away, finding out that the man Oh portrays to the world has nothing to do with reality. The moment the house owner discovers that Bum broke in and saw what he's been hiding, he decides to hold him captive. Despite being an object of affection for Bum, Sangwoo abuses and tortures him. The plot follows his multiple attempts of breaking free and its consequences and them slowly growing a deep, toxic interest in each other.
Most of the fandom activity is related to shipping Bum and Sangwoo.
There are many who argue that shipping Bum and Sangwoo promotes abuse, due to this being their canon relationship. There are also many who say the premise of a gay man falling for the straight man who is holding him captive is homophobic.
