Meanwhile, on Kanghwa Island a series of murders has taken place and Detective K receives a request from the King to investigate. It appears a number of bodies have been found, each having bite-marks on their neck similar to those left by vampires. The detective travels to Kanghwa with his trusty partner Seo-pil (Oh) where they run into a beautiful woman (Kim Ji-won) who seems to have lost her memory.
