Storyline

Newly-hired gofer Young-Jak Joo becomes a key pawn in a powerful South Korean corporate-crime family obsessed with sex, money, and intrigue. The family bribes a government official to take the heat off its young heir. The Yoons are so rich, they have no qualms letting the young bag-man cull the cash he's to deliver, from a storeroom jammed with 6 foot high stacks of money. Mr. Joo seems too obsequious and obedient to worry about, but when the wife of the company CEO sees on her spy cameras, that her husband is having an affair with their maid, the infuriated matriarch orders Mr. Joo to have sex with her, then entrusts the befuddled Mr. Joo with monitoring the video screens.

The movie will not be to everyones taste of course. But it has some merits. While its hard to root for any of the characters, the story itself is intriguing. What was surprising to a point, is how sexual the movie was. Not explicit, but still the characters are aware of their sexuality. Of course with money comes not only responsibility, but in this case a lot of power.

While simple it might effect you with its High and Low points. Acting is pretty solid and the movie does have a few (if little) Action scenes. It's more about the Drama and thrill of what is happening. There are far better Korean movies out there of course, but that doesn't mean, that this is a bad one. It's just not as good as others
