Episode 1[]

Dorm room 207 is home to the first years Eun Yeong-ro and Yoon Seol-hui, as well as senior students Ko Hye-ryeong and Yeo Jeong-min. The dorm`s phone desk is operated by Kye Bun-ok, who is around the same age as the senior students. Chang-su outlines a plan to abduct Professor Han I-seop, the brains behind the opposition party, and make it seem like the opposition party operates with the support of North Korea. That night, a few graduate students, including Im Soo-ho and Oh Gwang-tae, have a rooftop barbeque.

With only 15 minutes left until roll call at the Hosu dorm, Yeong-ro runs back with a wave of equally frantic students. As the container of rice balls roll away, Hye-ryeong tells her to leave it and keeps running. Yeong-ro doesn`t listen and the caretaker, Kim Man-dong, is forced to shut the dorm`s door and hand over the key to the matron before Yeong-ro makes it back. As she inches her way to 207`s window, Bun-ok helps to distract the matron from catching sight of her.

In 207, Jeong-min berates Hye-ryeong for abandoning Yeong-ro since she won`t be able to afford a room if she gets kicked out. According to Jeong-min, Yeong-ro`s family owns a humble rice cake shop and she relies on scholarships and assisting Bun-ok with the phones to stay at the dorm. Seol-hui spots Yeong-ro at the window at the same time Bun-ok does. With the matron closing in, Bun-ok cries “rat!” sending the dorm residents into a frenzy.

At the dorm, Yeong-ro vents about the lack of correspondence from her brother while helping Bun-ok with the phones. Yeong-ro picks up a call from Gwang-tae who introduces himself and arranges a group date with the girls of 207, though it`s mostly an excuse for him to meet Hye-ryeong. Gwang-tae, being one boy short of the four needed to pair up with the four girls of 207, begs Soo-ho to join the date. Soo-ho only agrees when Gwang-tae threatens not to introduce him to Professor Han.

Meanwhile, Yeong-ro laments that Jeong-min is unlikely to go and Bun-ok eagerly takes her place. When the girls from 207 arrive Gwang-tae jolts out of his seat to greet them, bumping the table and sending the matchstick tower Soo-ho was building crashing. Bun-ok joins the 207 girls and throws herself into the seat opposite Soo-ho before anyone else can, introducing herself as a Hosu student named Gye-seong. The girls close their eyes while each of the boys place a token on the table.

Hye-ryeong is the first to pick from the tokens and chooses an exam certificate, thinking it belongs to Soo-ho until Gwang-tae reveals that it`s his. Bun-ok, who overheard Soo-ho and Gwang-tae discussing their tokens earlier, swipes the plane before Yeong-ro has a chance to pick it up.

Episode 2[]

This time, during the chase, we see the ANSP agents open fire on Soo-ho. After Yeong-ro finds Soo-ho in 207, she starts wiping his blood off the floor and window. Yeong-ro assumes that Soo-ho is being chased for protesting and wants them to help her hide him. Hye-ryeong, having heard Gang-mu say that Soo-ho is a North Korean spy, is less inclined.

She gives in after Jeong-min asserts that student protestors are framed as spies so that they can be arrested and Yeong-ro reminds her that Soo-ho was one of the boys on their group date. Enraged, Ha-na almost strikes the matron with her gun but Gang-mu stops her and sends her to retrieve a search warrant from the Prosecutor`s Office. Gang-mu finds a trail of blood leading to 207 right as Ha-na arrives with the search warrant. The matron follows behind the agents as they burst into 207, finding Hye-ryeong alone.

The matron notices a blood stain that the girls missed near their door but says nothing to alert the agents. When Gang-mu presses for the missing girls` location, Hye-ryeong points to the dorm bathhouse. The lie is weak, but the matron backs it with the explanation that there are no speakers in the bathhouse for the girls to have heard the lockdown instructions from. The rest of the 207 girls hide Soo-ho inside a bench in the bathhouse sauna.

When they hear Gang-mu drawing near, they undress and cover Soo-ho with their clothes before closing the bench and sitting on it. With the all-clear from Ha-na, Gang-mu pulls his agents out of the Hosu dorm. Meanwhile, the rest of their team hauls Soo-ho`s driver, Geum-cheol, into their headquarters. One of the agents on Gang-mu`s team makes a secret call to Chang-su.

When Chang-su reprimands the agent for being unable to stop Gang-mu, the agent points back to his orders to act discreetly. The agent also informs Chang-su that Professor Han is sticking to his flat tire story. The next day at the ANSP headquarters, Gyeong-hui tells Gang-mu to step down from the Taedong River 1 case. Gang-mu tries to argue but it`s a direct order from Chang-su.

Gang-mu can`t figure out why the North Korean`s abducted Professor Han after taking such careful measures to get close to him. The 207 girls, minus Hye-ryeong, hatch a plan to stow Soo-ho on the fourth floor in the abandoned, and apparently haunted, cabin where the last matron committed suicide. While helping Yeong-ro and Jeong-min sneak Soo-ho to the cabin, Man-dong warns them to watch out for Bun-ok, who was enthusiastically asking about the reward money for turning spies in. The ANSP agents stationed outside the campus have clear view of the cabin, which means no lights.

Episode 3[]

Bun-ok sneaks into the cabin and signals Gyeong-ja, pointing to an open window. Soo-ho struggles to pull Yeong-ro back up as the matron leaves with the others. The matron forces Man-dong to lock the cabin behind them and hand over his key. Back in the safety of the cabin, Soo-ho tries to calm Yeong-ro`s nerves with a blanket over her shoulders and a drink in her hands.

The matron hangs the cabin key in a cupboard in her room. After rebandaging Soo-ho`s shoulder, Yeong-ro discovers that the cabin is locked. Fortunately, Man-dong and Jeong-min – who noticed that Yeong-ro wasn`t tucked into her bed – are on their way. To ease Yeong-ro`s panic, Soo-ho makes a paper airplane.

Yeong-ro makes one of her own and the distraction becomes genuine enjoyment until they`re interrupted by Man-dong picking the lock. Soo-ho, his desire to leave renewed by this ordeal, asks Man-dong for help. Man-dong leads them to an emergency exit in the mechanical room that the students are unaware of. For an instant, Man-dong sees her as the ghost of the late matron.

With the ticketing system there to keep the ANSP agents out, Yeong-ro plans to use the day to sneak Soo-ho out. That night, the matron arrives back at the dorm, heavy with some unknown burden, as Hye-ryeong, Seol-hui, and Jeong-min accuse Bun-ok of theft. The matron pulls the trio into her office and asks for proof. Jeong-min saw Bun-ok wearing stolen items when they snuck Soo-ho to the cabin but cannot say as much.

Needing a suit for Soo-ho to blend in at the open day, Yeong-ro makes a call from a public phone booth. Yeong-ro arranges to drop by the following day when the mistress of the house will be out golfing. On the third day of waiting for the North Korean delegates (Ji-rok and Soo-ryeon) to negotiate with them again in Beijing, Chang-su and Tae-il get testy. On the day before the open house, Yeong-ro visits the sizeable estate where Ae-ra and the housekeeper are waiting.

The day of the open house arrives. Soo-ho and Yeong-ro meet outside the cabin, sharing a tender moment in their fancy attire. Outside, Gwang-tae accosts Seol-hui, annoyed that Hye-ryeong didn`t invite him (the 207 girls deemed him a risk). He follows Seol-hui into the dorm, pretending to be her guest at the ticket station.

Seol-hui distracts him before he can catch Yeong-ro and Soo-ho trying to get to the door again and sends him to 207. Yeong-ro and Soo-ho hide in the room where Hye-ryeong`s guest, a soldier named Byeong-tae, is showing off his shooting skills.

Episode 4[]

In the overlooking café, Seol-hui realizes that Gwang-tae called the ANSP and runs down to warn Yeong-ro. Gang-mu takes Gwang-tae back to the ANSP headquarters to interrogate him, distrustful since Gwang-tae`s call came at the same time the agents were searching Mount Ogong (which borders the dorm) for the dead drop used by the North Korean spies. Bun-ok accuses Yeong-ro of flaunting Soo-ho around the dorm to spite her. She finds Man-dong as he`s putting the phone away and asks him to store the backpack in his room.

The following day at the ANSP headquarters, Ha-na comes to Gang-mu`s office with an orchid plant for his desk. She tells Gang-mu that she only joined the ANSP to ask the man who proposed to her and then vanished why he left her. Bun-ok accuses the 207 girls of harbouring Soo-ho and takes the matron to Man-dong`s room to find the backpack. After uncovering it, the matron tells Man-dong that he will soon be relieved of his position.

The matron has Bun-ok collect the backpack and bring it to her office. Once there, the matron stresses the danger the whole dorm will be subjected to if Bun-ok tries to turn the 207 girls in. The matron says that Bun-ok, the younger sister of a communist, would be an easy target for the ANSP to frame as a spy. Yeong-ro takes the fall for the whole group, insisting on her knees that she hid Soo-ho against the other girls` wishes.

At his base, Soo-ho phones Ji-rok to say that his wound has healed and he`s ready for his mission. Ending the call, Ji-rok tells Soo-ryeon that Soo-ho will complete the mission. Ji-rok insists that Soo-ho will lead them and orders Soo-ryeon to stay out of further South–North negotiations. Soo-ho also says that the CIA will soon discover the son`s defection and then it`s only a matter of time before the ANSP does too.

Leaving the church, Professor Han hails a taxi without realizing that its driver is Comrade Joo. Ha-na drives after them but a ruckus on the road caused by the newly arrived North Korean spies halts her chase. Comrade Joo take Professor Han to their headquarters to read a letter penned by his son. According to Soo-ho, the only way for the professor`s son to escape is if the professor goes to the North to get him.

Gathering his forces, Soo-ho orders them to travel ahead with Professor Han to the port where their boat will be waiting at 10pm to take them home. Meanwhile, Gang-mu deciphers one of Soo-ho`s coded messages and learns that he had been hiding at the dorm.

But Gyeong-Hui reveals the spies are leaded by Soo-Ho. Eung-Cheol tells Soo-Ho to take the hostage`s life. He gets a call from Chang-Su who tells him that they didn`t intend to hurt them. Soo-Ho thinks Chang-Su should repay for what he did.

But Soo-Ho shoots Gyeok-Chan in advance and keeps his life. Soo-Ho tells Chang-Su that he will kill the hostage if he doesn`t send the doctor to him within twenty minutes. Tae-Il calls Chung-Ya and tells her to come to see him. But Chung-Ya tells Tae-Il that she cannot do that because she`s a doctor.

Soo-Ho asks Seung-Hee for the list of the students. Seung-Hee tells the students that the girls who come from 207 room will get released. She tells her that she`s going to stay and lets others leave. Bun-Ok offers to cast lots to decide the list of girls who can leave the dormitory.

But Soo-Ho shows the paper to Bun-Ok. She learns that she`s the last one who can leave the dormitory. She asked Soo-Ho for letting Bun-Ok leave. Soo-Ho tears up Bun-Ok`s resume, telling her that he won`t release her.

She sneaks to the furthest stall as Comrade Joo stands guard outside and unstraps a radio – the thing she had been taping up in her office – from around her thigh. The radio squeals as she turns it on, and she`s forced to return it to its place under her dress when Comrade Joo comes in to investigate. Chung-ya shows her true allegiances when Soo-ho returns to Comrade Lee`s side behind the partition.

Chang-su and Tae-il join him at the vantage point from which Yeong-ro is visible in the window. Soo-ho pays Gang-mu a visit mostly so that Chang-su can hear him warn that the dorm is rigged with C4 explosives from the mechanical room to the third floor. Han-na embraces him, exaggerating the gesture to whisper the plan in his ear and let him know about the gun in Chung-ya`s kit. Soo-ryeon is needling Ji-rok in his office when Chang-su`s call comes through.

Soo-ho has just walked in with Yeong-ro`s radio, satisfied that he`s deafened the ANSP agents. Comrade Joo drags Chung-ya, face covered in blood, before him. Soo-ho tries to talk Comrade Joo down while Gang-mu uses the distraction to pocket Chung-ya`s scalpel. Soo-ho`s attempts fail and Comrade Joo flings Yeong-ro away from the window.

He replaces Yeong-ro with Chung-ya and points his gun at her in clear view of the snipers outside the campus. The snipers report the situation back to base and Tae-il, distraught, has Chief Ahn locate Chung-ya. Joining the snipers, he tries to get them to kill Comrade Joo but Chung-ya is in the way. Han-na turns the radio off as Soo-ho tries to wrestle the gun from Comrade Joo`s grip.

The gun that Chung-ya snuck in falls to the ground in the struggle and gets kicked right to Yeong-ro`s feet. She picks it up and aims it at Comrade Joo, who then pulls Chung-ya to himself like a shield. Soo-ho tries to talk Yeong-ro into dropping the gun and Gang-mu tries to convince the spies not to let things spiral while they have the advantage. Comrade Joo finally lowers his gun and an ANSP sniper takes a shot… completely missing everyone and making things worse.

He tries to go downstairs but he gives up the mind after he saw Gyeok-Chan. Gang-Mu sneaks into another room so that Gyeok-Chan doesn`t find him. Seung-Hee takes out the intercom from the flowerpot and leaves the cafeteria when Eung-Cheol falls asleep.
