Tae-san is a man who truly has everything - money, fame, and power. Everything that a man can desire. He has two women who he wouldn't change for the world. They're his only daughter, Mira, and a chart- topping pop star fiancee, Yuna. Tae-san wants them to get along, but Mira doesn't take kindly to her stepmother-to-be. One day, Yuna gets killed in a horrific accident, and Mira is arrested as the suspect. Tae-san firmly believes that his daughter is not the killer and mobilizes all his resources to protect her. He finds out about Yuna's stalker, Dong-myung, who knows the truth about the accident, and he hires Hee-jung, a lawyer that Mira trusts like her sister. Working with them, Tae-san orchestrates a risky plot to find his fiancee's real killer. The man who has the world is about to change it.
This film's weak point is the seemingly predictable slow place. A presumptuous viewer, like myself, would draw conclusions and either walk-out or doze off. The script, for the most part, simply lacks engagement. Luckily I sat it through. What'll seem to be a stupid plot will prove otherwise if you can summon the patience until about the last 10 minutes. Despite a very good performance, Choi Ming-sik still needs to find a script with a Korean director (or otherwise) who can tap into his reserves, of the likes of past reminiscent performances, which we saw in Old Boy, I saw the Devil, Failan, etc. I still remain a HUGE fan though!
