Lee Jin-Pyo (Kim Sang-Jung) and Andrew (Park Sang-Min) worked as bodyguards at the South Korean President's home the Blue House. While the president and other high ranking public officials were visiting Myanmar an explosion occurs there set off by North Korean agents. The explosion did not harm the South Korean President, but other South Korean officials were killed. To retaliate for the killing, five high ranking South Korean officials plan a covert operation to go into North Korea and kill North Korean agents. Without the president's knowledge, bodyguards Lee Jin-Pyo and Andrew gather men who will take part in the dangerous mission. The men will be dropped near the North Korean coastline and then enter North Korea to carryout their assassinations. For their return, Choi Eung-Chan (Cheon Ho-Jin) promises to have a submarine waiting for them to carry them back to South Korea.
Meanwhile, the five high ranking South Korean public officers, who initiated the covert operation, changes their minds while the operation is taking place. The officials decide to give up on the 21 special force members taking part in the covert operation.
The Special Forces members complete their tasks and swim into the ocean looking for the submarine to take them back to South Korea.

A sniper on the submarine kills all of the Special Forces members except Lee Jin-Pyo – who was saved by Andrew and swims back to South Korea.
Lee Jin-Pyo, carrying out a promise to his fallen comrade and good friend Andrew, goes to Andrew’s home and snatches away Andrew’s baby, while Andrew’s wife hangs clothes outside. Lee Jin-Pyo then moves to Thailand with the baby. Lee Jin-Pyo sets up a camp in the jungles of Thailand, while growing and trafficking illegal narcotics. Jin-Pyo also raises the baby Johnny Lee and eventually trains him into an elite soldier.
Johnny Lee, now a young adult, enters a village in Thailand and spots a Korean man, Dindo Bae (Kim Sang-Ho), being shaken down by Thai gang members. On a whim, Johnny Lee comes to his aide and helps Dindo Bae’s escape. Johnny Lee takes the Korean man back their camp. It turns out Dindo Bae is quite a cook and he prepares dishes for Johnny Lee and Lee Jin-Pyo. Johnny Lee also spots a photo of a young woman named Kim Na-Na that Dindo Bae carries with him. Johnny Lee takes the photo and places it next to his bed. He becomes emotionally attached to the woman in the photo even though he has never met her.
A few days later, Lee Jin-Pyo loses a foot while saving Johnny Lee from a landmine. While Lee Jin-Pyo is recovering, he finally tells Johnny Lee about his birth father and how he was killed by his own government. Lee Jin-Pyo then vows to exact revenge upon the five government officials responsible for his father's death.
Seven years later, Johnny Lee finally arrives in South Korea. Prior to arriving in South Korea, Johnny Lee studied at M.I.T. in the United States. He was also warned by Lee Jin-Pyo, prior to entering South Korea, to avoid falling in love because blood will be shed all around him.
