The K-drama will be based on the webtoon of the same name created by Bae Jin Soo.

In the newly released teaser video, Ryu Jun Yeol's character Jin Soo opened the scene. He received a red envelope with an invitation letter to participate in the mysterious show. While Jin Soo is finding out about the show, an unknown voice narrates, "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your patience. I now present to you a performance you've never seen before." 

The money game in the teaser video is described as "sell your time for big profit" and also "irresistible but brutal."

As Jin Soo gets to know about the show, he utters, "It's easy money" raising anticipation on how the story will unfold in the mysterious place.
