Love to death.

Choi Sun-woo, a TV star, was found dead, naked, with her neck broken, in the home of a famous painter. How could such a media icon, wife of Park Moon-hyun, himself heir to one of the country’s biggest fortunes, end her life like this? Everything leads us to believe that this artist abducted her to rape her before murdering her.

However, a few hours after his arrest, the presumed murderer begins to tell a completely different story: an abracadabrique scenario of passionate love and S&M sex.
