Choi Eun-seol (Shin Se-kyung) arrives home to find her parents murdered. When the murderer is distracted, she escapes but is hit by a car. Eun-seol’s parents are later found with a barcode carved into their skin, the work of the “Barcode” serial killer. The lead detective on the case, Oh Jae-pyo (Jung In-gi) realizes that the now-comatose daughter Eun-seol is the sole surviving witness. On that same night, Choi Moo-gak (Park Yoo-chun) is at the hospital visiting his younger sister, also named Choi Eun-seol (Kim So-hyun), who’s being treated for mild injuries after a bus accident. But when he returns to her bed, he finds her dead with her throat slit.
Six months later, Eun-seol comes out of her coma. But she has no memories at all of her life before waking up at the hospital, and her left eye has turned green with no scientific explanation. She has also gained the unique ability to “see” smells as visible colors and shapes, and can even trace where people have been because their lingering scents are like a trail. To protect her, Jae-pyo adopts her and invents a new life for her, telling her that he’s her real father and that her name is Oh Cho-rim.
Three years and six months pass, and Cho-rim is a cheerful girl who’s adjusted to her ability. She dreams of a becoming a comedian, and works as a gofer for a small, struggling theater company called Frog Troupe. On the other hand, Moo-gak had been so traumatized by his sister’s death that after two months of no sleep and constant pain, he’d fainted and was clinically dead for ten days. When he woke up, he’d lost the sense of smell and taste, and is unable to feel pain. And unlike his previous warm personality, Moo-gak is now stoic, emotionless, and speaks in a monotone.
