What is Rugal About?
The story of Rugal takes place with honest and respectable police detective Kang Ki Bum’s (played by Choi Jin Hyuk) loss of his vision and his wife by the hands of the special organization called Argos. This happened when he was assigned to investigate Argos. One day, when coming home from work, he finds several masked men murdering his wife and child. They beat him up too and cut out both of his eyeballs.
Kang Ki Bum is now on the run because, after the incident, he wakes up in a hospital room and finds out that he is framed for murder. The National Intelligence Service contacts him and informs him that he is selected to be a part of a special team. He gets recruited by Rugal, which is an army of bio-engineered soldiers whose sole purpose is to fight against Argos and stop their terror attacks in South Korea. Rugal grants Kang Ki Bum cybernetic eyes, which grant him the ability to see again.
