Behind Your Touch (2023): Story

Bong Ye-Bun (Han Ji-Min) is a veterinarian who works in the quiet town of Mujin, where there is no crime. She also has an ability called psychometry. She can see into the past of people and animals when she touches their behind. 

She has a kind heart and gets in the way of others. As she tests her abilities to see how far they can take her, she meets Detective Moon Jang-Yeol (Lee Min-Ki). 

Moon Jang-Yeol used to be a top agent in Seoul who worked on a team that looked into violent crimes, but he was demoted and sent to a small police station in Mujin. He has a hard time getting back to the Seoul police station. 

He uses Bong Ye-Bun’s special psychometry talent to get his transfer. In Mujin, they work together on small cases until all of a sudden there is a case of seven murders.

At the same time, Kim Seon-Woo (Suho), who showed up out of the blue at Mujin, works part-time at a village shop. He smiles in an innocent and sweet way, and he is kind to others. But he is also a strange person.
