Now in most horror stories or television series, it is seen that evil spirits make prey to innocent beings. But in The Uncanny Counter, the evil spirits are seen possessing those with criminal mindsets or the ones who have murdered someone. They prompt them to commit the crime and then consume the spirit of the deceased.
But there comes a stage when the Counters group falls into a deep coma state lying in the boundary between the afterlife and the living world. They are possessed by a partnering spirit who grants them the strong physical ability and supernatural powers attached with perfect health and senses.
Among four of the Counter group, 3 of them take up jobs as workers in a noodle restaurant, to conceal their actual identity. These are Ga Mo-tak, Choo Mae-ok, and Do Ha-na. But the fourth member of the group Jang Cheol-Joong is killed by an evil spirit of level 3 during combat. The killer consumes his spirit. After that Wi-gen, his Yung partner, makes hard efforts in searching for the new unconscious human life to possess.
Mysteriously, she (Wi-gen) puts her focus on So Mun, a high school student, who appears healthy and living despite being disabled. The moment he is possessed by Wi-gen, Mun experiences strange changes in his body and even sees her in the dreams. At first, he doesn’t have any idea about bizarre things happening to him, but later he comes to know the truth from Eonni’s Noodles restaurant.
Soon Mun fills up the void left by the death of Cheol-Joong. And then starts his stirring journey of a battle against fearsome demons, while going back to his past, and revealing the unpleasant truth behind a project that has to be developed again in Jungjin.
