Storyline

Debt collector Tae Gun-ho, who lost his son five years ago, finds out he has liver cancer. The only way for him to survive is to get a liver transplant in the next 10 days from a woman named Cha Ha-yeon, who apparently has the matching organ. Cha turns out to be a seductive swindler who currently lives in jail, and Tae decides to meet her in person in hopes of saving his own life. Cha agrees to donate part of her liver only if Tae tracks down Cho Myeong-seok, who put her in prison. Written by anonymous

Typical Korean tear-gas drama
23 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

Typical Korean tear-gas drama, if you watch more, that's it. But the plot unfolds slowly, let me see a man who is forced by life, the heart is anxious and there is no place to vent, put all that pain in his heart, no wonder finally give up the opportunity that has been found.
