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.

Classy movie about class
23 August 2013 | by (Eel Pie Island) – See all my reviews

This family keeps a roomful of cash stacked eight feet high and the son picks up a $600bn company for $6m but there's always someone richer and they live in fear of being arrested by the bribed authorities or hauled off by their super-rich enemies. Factotum Mr. Joo (Kang-woo Kim, who has a great six-pack) becomes disgusted with his bosses after the lady-boss (Yun-shik Baek?) takes him to bed and, ageing legs in air, orders him to push it in deep, deeper, harder. This becomes a problem with her gorgeous divorced daughter (Hyo-jin Kim) who fancies the pants off Mr. Joo and finally gets him in the end, in the toilet of an international flight. (She pulls her dropped panties back up and says 'Slip it in the side'.) This is a spirited tale of the very rich, and franker than any movie you'll see from the Hollywood dream-machine. We loved it from beginning to end, but apparently it's an acquired taste, to judge by IMDb.
