When So-Young picks up a Korean-Filipino boy named Min-Ho from the clinic she visits after Min-Ho's mother stabs the doctor (Min-Ho's father), she takes care of him while seeking a living through prostitution.

I'm busy now.

Calm him down then.

I'll call you later.

Wait, wait!

I have something to say.

I'm sorry.

It must've been annoying.

I will focus now.

The truth is...

Does conversation help

give you a hard-on?

No, it's not like that...

I'm interviewing for a documentary

about "Bacchus Ladies".

Old women prostituting in the

Jongno area.

That's why...


Hear me out, Granny.

South Korea ranks 11th on the

economic scale,

but has the worst senior poverty rate

among OECD countries.

It's ridiculous how so many

senior citizens are

still suffering in the shadows

of society today.

It's not right.

You son of a bitch.

- Pay up.

- Excuse me?

Ten dollars for the room.

I paid for the room.

Oh, right...

And don't call me granny,

my vagina is still young!

Open your mouth.

All right, all right.

I will.


- See you, sis.

- See you.



Why don't you answer?

Where did they go?

It's me.


Where are you now?


What happened?

He disappeared while I was

making ramen.

I told you to take care of him.

I did!

I couldn't even work all day.

How long has he been missing?

About half an hour?

I searched around here.

He must be on the move.

He's got feet, after all.

- Shall we call the police?

- No, let's search again.


I'll look this way again.

You go search that alley.

Call me.


Excuse me, sir.

Did you see a little boy with

dark skin pass by here?

There's plenty around here.


You found him?

Where are you?


Why did you go out

without telling me?

I was scared shitless.

Thank god we found him.

He was standing out front.

I see.

Thank god we found you.

He told me he lost his mom.

- He spoke?

- Yes.

- Are you Filipino?

- Yes.

I see.

I am trying to find him his mom.
