- Yes, sir.

You even have a college degree.

So why'd you break into their homes?

Sir, he's here.

Tell him to come in.

Lee Min-kyu, right?


She's all yours.

Son of a bitch!

Stop it!

Let go!

I'm gonna kill that bastard!

Let's go.


The autopsy results

have come out.

It's not murder, it's lung cancer.

What? Lung cancer?

- Are they sure?

- Yes, I understand.

He was delicately shrouded.

Apart from a real ceremony,

he buried his body

better than any son could.

He doesn't seem

like a bad person to me.

- Wait outside.

- Yes, sir.

Well, you're free from

the homicide charge.

So how was she?

You liked forcing her, right?

What are you looking at?

Don't smile.

Your favorite plant over there...

I knew you'd come back

so I took good care of it.

It looks healthy, doesn't it?

I've thought things out

and I'd been too much.

I'll be good from now on.

Okay, I won't if

you don't want me to.

I've changed, you see?

Oh yeah, while you were gone,

I sent plenty of money to your folks

If it's that hard to withstand,

then do what you like.

Isn't he being too harsh?

Smile again.

Let go, you bastard!

Son of a bitch!

Sit down!

Sit down!

Prisoner 2904!

Playing games with me, you punk?

You scared me!

Try that again.

Today. you go hung")!-

Don't pretend you're sleeping.

I've been thinking about us,

and I feel like a real dumb ass.

Was I that bad to you?

Tell me!

I never wanted to ask this,

but I have to.

What did he do to you?

Did he do this?

He did this, but you stayed still?

Like this?

Like this? Like this?

Prisoner 2904!

Prisoner 2904!

You son of a bitch!

Why do you keep hiding?

Wanna disappear

from the world altogether?

If you pull that again,

I'll kill you.

Can I help you?

Excuse me!
