Beyond Evil is the story of two fearless men who are willing to go to extreme lengths in their pursuit of justice. Once a capable detective, Lee Dong-Sik had now been demoted. He was tasked to do chores at Manyang Police Substation. Nonetheless, he was beginning to settle into this peaceful life in this small, peaceful city. Just then, his new superior, Detective Han Joo-Won is transferred into his station. While he was Lee Dong-Sik’s boss, he was also to work as his partner. Han Joo-Won is an elite detective from a distinguished background. His father is also a star candidate poised to become the next National Police Agency chief. Despite the fact that Han Joo-Won had great qualities and high social standing, he was harboring a long-held secret.
This peaceful environment of the small city was broken as a string of gruesome killings take place. These cases start to form a pattern as they seem oddly reminiscent of a cold serial murder case from 20 years ago. This changed Lee Dong-Sik’s life as he teams up with Han Joo-Won to stop their city from being shaken up. Both of them vow and go through extreme lengths in their pursuit to stop this vicious culprit in his tracks. In the course of their investigation to identify the culprit, they even break the law. They are forced to look deeper than what the evidence seems to suggest so, they start questioning the capabilities of those who surround the case. The two are constantly driven to question the innocence of themselves as well as the ones who are involved in the case.
