In the released video teaser, Loh Kiwan landed nervously in Belgium alone. The lonely reality becomes evident to him as he faces the unfamiliarity of the place as well as the cold weather and hunger. 

While trying to prove his status as a refugee, his memories of North Korea were shown. He was then told that they could not confirm yet that Loh Kiwan is really from North Korea. This made him fall and lose hope. 

One day, he meets Marie, a person who does not have any will to live. 

In the last seconds of the teaser, Loh Kiwan portrayed by Song Joong Ki uttered, “

I've reached this point by making a commitment to endure and conquer any challenges or hardships I face in this place. My name is Loh Kiwan.”
