During one of his escapades, he sees himself propelled into a parallel world where he meets Jung Tae Eul, an inspector with whom he teams up with to defeat the criminals but also close the door between their two worlds.

How is it? I haven't seen these two episodes but will watch later. I've been checking out comments about the series on other sites and reactions of my friends in FB. And they confuse me. It's like we are all watching a different drama with the same title and cast. Parallel universe??? Some are extremely happy while some are not.
