Psychological thriller The King of Pigs begins with a shocking murder and a message for the detective to remember what happened 20 years ago while they were students in middle school. The drama shifts between the past and present and slowly unravels a painful backstory that is in equal parts cruel and torturous. A second murder within days of the first, turns the case into a race against time for detective Jung Jong-seok (Kim Sung-kyu) and detective Kang Jin-ah (Chae Jung-an) to stop Hwang Kyung-min (Kim Dong-wook) from exacting his revenge on everyone else responsible.
