Program Abstract: "Ryu and Lee are special agents of O. P., the nation's top secret intelligence service. The arms smuggler Lim is shot by a sniper in the street one day after volunteering to tell them some important information. From the scene of the Lim's death, Ryu instinctively suspects the involvement of Hee, the best sniper of the 8th special Force of North Korea. She had previously assassinated many government officials and hid herself from the unrelenting pursuit of Ryu. Now she's back after one year. Ryu and Lee investigate the death of Lim. In the process, they learn that Hee had tried to secure into her possession the CTX, the liquid bomb newly developed by the Nat'l Defense Lab with the help of Lim. Meanwhile, Park and the elite agents of the 8th special Force of North Korea succeed in seizing the CTX while it is being transported to the corps headquarters. While everyone is trying hard to retrieve the CTX, director Ko, Ryu, and Lee are suspicious of each other, creating a delicate and suspenseful situation. While the situation eludes solution, the date set for the marriage of Ryu and Hyun approaches quickly. But their marriage is another sign of impending misfortune."
