What do you get when you have the best Hong Kong movie elements mixed with the best Korean movies ? You get My Wife Is A Gangster 3.

Aryoung (Shu Qi) is in hiding in Korea because she's been marked for a hit in Hong Kong. She's under custody of Korean gang Ki Chul who's been ordered by his boss to protect her. He has enough trouble of his own as he needs to keep rival gangs from encroaching into his territory. It turns out that he's the one who's getting protection from Aryoung as she beats the rival gangs at every turn. Aryoung causes enough commotion to be targeted by the rival Korean gangs also. What would Ki Chul do to protect Aryoung ?

You really need to see this movie to appreciate how well it's made. There's action, and comedy that's pretty superb. Shu Qi puts in great performance, keeping the quality of the movie high. There are intriguing development of the story at every turn that keeps this movie going. Good action, and not so bad romance are woven into the script also.

This is one of the great action drama/comedy to come out of Asia. You really need to see it to appreciate it.
