The Veil Episode 1: Namgoong Min Returns After a Year of Disappearance to Seek Revenge
Han Ji Hyuk, the top field agent of NIS who disappeared for a year, returns to the organization with a lost memory to find the traitor who dropped him into the abyss.
In the first episode aired on September 17, Han Ji Hyuk was found on a smuggled ship and was arrested by the Coast Guard. The top agent was covered with filth and blood.
As he returned to the organization, no one welcomed him and was given the cold shoulder. His colleagues and fellow spy agents thought he was long dead.
However, Ji Hyuk has lost some of his memory. In the medical examination performed on him, the traces of his memories were erased by a periodically small amount of medication. Because of this, he only remembers the memories he had with his colleagues a year ago.
Thankfully, the second deputy director of the NIS overseas division Do Jin Suk (Jang Young Nam) performed a hypnotic treatment to regain Ji Hyuk's lost memories, as well as restore his position in the organization.
