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.

Laughter is the best medicine

We might think it odd that comedy and mystery share anything in common. Mystery excludes comedy and comedy excludes mystery. To put it more succinctly, mystery excludes raucous laughter and comedy excludes seriousness. But the playfulness of Joo Won (Hwang Dae Myung), the Korean spideypool, is never frivolous or decorative. The mystery is reconciled with comedy. 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

Luckily, the possession of a sense of humor ranks high on my list of essential personal attributes. Joo Won (Hwang Dae Myung) possessed that sense of humor. I was patient with him, for although Joo Won (Hwang Dae Myung) lost his wisdom to a woman, he retained fragments and remnants of his humor

A very enjoyable and well balanced drama A very enjoyable drama that has all the ingredience of success. A very well balanced, characters, screen time, story, team work, comedy, mistery, romance, suspense, development of the story. Every thing!! All the characters have their own story and charm even the bad guys.. Which makes you guess the relation between the characters and how it will unfold. Just amazing. The OST and the cinema is addicting, and of course the main charachter, I love the duality of his role.
