If they just go to the afterlife, a new life is waiting for them.

It would be great if he could stay in Hades forever.
However, every 99 years, he is required to take a 99-day vacation to the living world.
The creator insists on calling it “vacation.” However, for Kokdu, who hates human beings, it’s a punishment.
On a hot summer day, snow fell from the sky.
That very day, Kokdu woke up, in the body of Do Jin Woo. Kokdu took possession of the man who looked exactly like him.
As Kokdu woke up, he met with a doctor, Han Gye Jeol, who held him tightly. This is when their ill-fated relationship began.
Han Gye Jeol (Female, age 31)
A clumsy fellow of Pilsung University Hospital’s Emergency Medical Department
Her mother was a nurse and the only miracle of a small village on an island.
She cured everyone, but the people on the island were only thankful to the doctor.
Due to this, young Gye Jeol was angry and felt resentment.
This is why Gye Jeol was determined to become a doctor.
However, life was quite difficult for her.
Patients and their guardians treated emergency room doctors like sandbags. They continued to mentally abuse her.
Feeling shameful, Gye Jeol takes a walk. And that’s when she witnesses a bus in an accident.
There she meets the dying Do Jin Woo (the human being that looks exactly like Kokdu).
She risks danger and saves his life.
However, Gye Jeol is afraid that she’ll be sued again.
So without even acknowledging who she is, just like the little mermaid, she runs away from the scene of the accident.
After just meeting once, Do Jin Woo captures the heart of Gye Jeol.

Jeong Won had just one reason to want to work in the emergency medical department.
She wanted to run away.
Hankook University Hospital’s Emergency Medical Department has been operating an overseas study program for residents. Jeong Won wanted to use that opportunity to run away from this awful country.
Jeong Won ran from her father and went to the United States to study and met Do Jin Woo.
“It’s him.” She thought that he will be able to save her from this hopeless situation that her father put her in. She thought that she could lean on him like an old tree that has been standing for several centuries.
She was devastated when Do Jin Woo told her that he never wants to see her again.
She even gave up on a job opportunity to follow him back.
She was debating on getting a job at another hospital when she heard that Do Jin Woo had amnesia.
Just to make sure, she checked. Do Jin Woo really didn’t remember her.
What if Do Jin Woo is never going to remember her mistake or her lie?
Could this be another opportunity?
Jeong Won approaches Do Jin Woo again. But he’s no longer Do Jin Woo. He’s Kokdu.
