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. As they investigate further, they suspect there is more to her than meets the eye …but just what is her connection to malicious vampire spirits?
