Han Kyung Bae (Sol Kyung Gu) is a successful news anchor with a beautiful wife (Kim Nam Joo) and a nine-year-old son, but his quiet life comes crashing down when his son gets kidnapped. In the next 44 days, they continuously receive calls from the kidnapper in his chillingly cold and emotionless voice with instructions and requests for ransom. The police are determined to find the kidnapper, but he effortlessly eludes capture; not only is he a step ahead at every turn, he seems to enjoy toying with the police in this cat-and-mouse chase. As the kidnapper keeps walking free, Kyung Bae becomes increasingly desperate and frustrated with the police, as he knows time is running out for his child.
Before starring in the blockbuster Jumong, Song Il-Kook headlined Oasis, a thrilling, three-episode Korean TV drama series set in the early 1940s during the Japanese occupation of Korea. Fleeing an arranged marriage to a man she doesn't love, In-hee (Jang Shin-Young) meets Gi-hyun (Song Il-Kook, Jumong), an aspiring musician whose most prized possession is his late father's saxophone. In-hee and Gi-hyun cross paths over the years and slowly fall in love. In-hee ends up in the radio business working for Young-jin (Lee Jung-Gil, Boys Over Flowers), a Korean national who supports the Japanese government in its occupation of Korea. As Gi-hyun’s musical career begins to take off, he discovers that Young-jin is the same man who murdered his father many years before. As the tension builds, Gi-hyun is suspiciously sent to work hard labor at a coal mine in Japan. Upon the Japanese defeat in World War II, Gi-hyun returns home, full of revenge, to find his life turned upside down.
