Wearing a blue sweatsuit, Kim Jeong-ho shows a stairway action through the rain with a sharp look on his face, creating an extraordinary feeling. Besides, Kim Jeong-ho in a khaki sweatshirt doubles his secretiveness by making a secret call with a serious expression. In addition, Kim Jeong-ho, who took off his sweatsuit to dress up in a white shirt and a black suit, is following someone with a charismatic look.
