However, when another cop was injured and unable to go undercover in the city's biggest criminal cases, he steps up to the plate and accepts the challenge to be transformed into a runway model in 60 days. Among the challenges of losing 20 kilograms in 2 weeks, Cha also have to work with high school alum Ko Young-jae (Sung Yu-ri), who is the designer. Convinced he stinks and will ruin her show, she sets him the impossible. With so much to learn in such a short period of time, Cha case turns into the biggest radical makeover at the hands of fashion designer.[2]
