Throughout history, the treasures of an old empire have always been the best items for thievery. A professional thief called "Skunk" forms an unofficial cultural heritage assets redemption team called "Team Karma" with a group of officials to pull off a heist to retrieve the stolen assets, a mission that is informal and illegal yet righteous in a sense. In front of them is a mission of massive proportion. Buried somewhere in Korea is a large number of cultural assets worth 30 trillion won as well as spiritual beads believed to provide eternal life. Against a group with a conscienceless purpose, Team Karma’s thrill-filled retribution starts. "Skunk", his real name Hwang Dae Myung, is no ordinary thief. Dae Myung is an official with the Cultural Heritage Administration living a double life, a pathetic civil servant by day and a daring thief by night. When the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s cultural property team recovers some of the country’s missing cultural assets, both of his lives start to unravel.

The compulsion of the comedy to transform problems of cultural heritage crime into solutions adumbrates its larger purpose, which is to explore and then contain fraught social issues within a lithesome and orderly performance narrative
It makes a spectacle out of the folly of the species. Through laughter, we behold ourselves as the subject of great folly in order that the folly might be recognized and corrected
My ratings would have been higher if not for the so-called "romance"
"Stop getting into fights. Why did you help her? Tell me, do you have a crush on her?"
Kissing, hand-holding, and acts of rescue between two men or two women are seen as "platonic" gestures devoid of sexual undertones. The desexualization of same-sex interactions stands in contrast to the hypersexualization of opposite-sex interactions, where the slightest physical contact is sensationalized and fetishized. This is a poignant illustration of the biases and prejudices that permeate our social fabric. It's a tragedy to those who think
