Kim Do Gi is gifted with intuition and objective decision-making skills. Determined and brave, he also has physical skills that allow him to fight against multiple opponents. On top of this, he has a sense of resilience. He doesn’t panic during his crisis and rather makes a joke out of it.

The taxi company members act on Kim Do Gi’s plans, and he also transforms himself to perfectly suited to the projects. On the other hand, he becomes an entirely different person when he’s not on a mission. He doesn’t know what taking a break means, so he puts his efforts into household chores. Unlike the vengeful and reckless side of him that shines through when he takes care of the wrongdoers, he has been wounded to the heart with incurable pains.
