Song Soo-Jung (Gianna Jun) produces human interest TV documentaries for a small company. She is also sick of her job and the need to always dramatize the stories for maximum effect. Soo-Jung then decides to take her company's expensive video camera and to shoot a documentary on an African Lion that refuses to eat. Suddenly the shooting for the documentary is canceled, but, making things infinitely worse for Soo-Jung, someone snatches the video camera right from her hands. At the same time, a man (Hwang Jung-Min) in a Hawaiian shirt comes out of the blue and retrieves the stolen camera for Song Soo-Jung. The man tells Song Soo-Jung that he is Superman, but powerless now because of kryptonite placed in his head by an evil villain.
