A hit-and-run accident.

Check all the nearby

surveillance cameras.

Excuse me.

Did you witness

the hit-and-run accident?


Yes, the car hit them

and stopped for a moment.

After checking the accident,

it fled.

What color was the car

that hit them?

We don't know yet.

We're checking what's on

the surveillance camera.

Are you a witness?

Vehicle confirmed. Silver Kia Optima sedan.

Owned by Lee Ran.

Address is Seoul, Chongro-gu,

Gahwe-dong 1-192.

Locate the vehicle and arrest suspect.

Yes, sir.

Silver Kia Optima?

Who told you to listen

to my walkie talkie?

Officer Lee!

This is the police.

Open the door.

What are you doing?

Who said I caused an accident?

I was in bed!

Come outside.

Are you that car's owner?

Who messed up my car?

Let's go.

Let go of me!

Who did this to my car!

Come with us.

Let's talk at the police station.

What for?

Get in the car!

Why do you keep following us?

We've caught the criminal

so go away:

I was in bed at that time.

Why are you making

me into a criminal?

Calm down!

This is police station!

I never caused that accident.

Let me go now.

Are you this car's owner?


This was taken at 2:10 am

by a surveillance camera

near the accident.

We'll get to the bottom of

this eventually.

Like I said before,

I swear I was in bed at the time.

I'm not someone

who roams around late at night.

You can't come in here so get out.

I think this has something

to do with me.

What are you talking about?

Get out of here.

Will you keep lying

even after seeing this?

I swear I went to bed

at midnight.

All I can remember was you

knocking at my door at 5am.

We obviously have enough evidence,

so why do you keep lying?

We even found

your engine over-heated.

I wasn't driving!

Why'd you wake me up

in the middle of the night?

We have evidence.

She's telling the truth.

Who are you?

He's been following us ever since

we were at the accident site.

I'm the criminal.

Do you know this woman well?

No, it's the first time

I've met her.

Then why are you

sticking up for her?

Because I'm the criminal.

What evidence do you have

to incriminate yourself?

When I followed

my ex-girlfriend's car,

a car popped out of nowhere,

and I slammed on the brakes.

But it was too late

and I crashed.

You already saw that

at the car accident site.

No, it's not true!

She's also saying that

it wasn't her.

Who causes an accident and

blatantly leaves the car at her house?

I swear I hit that car

at that very spot in my dream.

In your dream?

Yes, in my dream.

Are you kidding?

No, I'm not.

I'm telling you, it was the exact

same spot in the dream.

I didn't want to lose my ex's car,

so I took off.

I saw a drunk guy at a crosswalk

and woke up surprised.

You'll find skid marks at the crosswalk

because I hit the breaks.

Sergeant Lee! Throw him out!

The car I followed

was a white Hyundai Sonata!

He's right.

A white Sonata passed by

before the accident.

And there are skid marks

at the next crosswalk.

A drunk man was

also captured on camera.

Let me get this straight.

You dreamt it

and she acted it out?

If this woman can't remember

what she did,

then she must be a sleepwalker.

So do you walk

in your sleep, Miss?

Now let her go.

We should charge you instead because

you matched the description of the car?

Plus, you saw it in your dream!

And what about this picture?

Does the camera lie?

This is you.

Isn't it?

Why do you keep insisting

when She's innocent?

I told you I'm the one who did it.

You stay out of this!

How can a dream turn real?

A dream is a dream

and reality is reality!

Get him out of here!

I'm telling you,

I caused the accident in my dream!

She's innocent!

He's a total psycho!

Drag him out of here!

Why aren't you listening to me?

What's the matter?

Are you feeling guilty now?

She's my patient.

She only used to wander

around at night.

Now she drove her car

and caused an accident.

A sleepwalker drives

her car around,

gets into an accident and goes

right back to sleep?

There are even cases where people

commit murder and don't remember it.

Then what now?

There's undisputable evidence

against her.

She's suffering from a severe case

of sleepwalking.

The best is to settle things

with the car accident victims.

What if they don't settle?

I'll persuade them.

It wasn't a fatal accident anyway.

They'll understand

if I explain the situation.

I'm responsible for half of this.

What do you mean by that?

I dreamt the same thing.

It was exactly

the same situation and place.

When did you start dreaming?

A week ago.

Her symptoms also started then.

I couldn't remember

what I dreamt before.

Lately, I remember my dreams

so clearly.

I had to go

to the scene of the accident.

Because it felt so real.

A dream is a memory.

Through a dream you can see

not only the memory of birth

but of many past generations as well.

A dream is also a person's

fear of the future.

What is your fear?

Having many sad moments.

What do you see now?

I don't see anything.

It's dark.

Now what do you see?

I see many lights spreading out.

And now?

The lights scatter.

I feel like I'm gonna suffocate.

Like it's going to explode.

I'm okay.

Please bring her here.

I'm sorry, it's all my fault.

You don't have to go to the hospital.

I took care of everything.

The car is also being repaired.
