In the 30-second sneak peek, Lee Dong Wook plays the role of a charming rogue police inspector Ryu Su Yeol who is left helpless in his encounters with the crazy motorcycle rider played by Wi Ha Jun. Donning a helmet, Wi rides recklessly on the streets to leave pillion rider Lee Dong Wook screaming.
