One fine spring day...

a disciple looked at some branches

blowing in the wind.

He asked his master...

"Master, are the branches moving

or is it the wind?"

Not even glancing to where

his pupil was pointing...

the master smiled and said...

"That which moves is neither

the branches nor the wind... "

"It's your heart and mind. "

Sunwoo, you should

go downstairs for a moment.

Why?

There's some trouble.

Okay, I'll handle it.

I'm sorry, but

business hours are over.

Please get up and leave

before I count to three. One.

Two.

Three!

Sit down, stupid!

Min-gi, lock the door.

You son of a bitch!

See you tomorrow.

- See you tomorrow.

- Okay.

Yes, boss. I'll transfer

the money in the morning.

All right, we'll close

for the night, sir.

So, did you take care

of yesterday's business?

Yes, sir.

Good. You always seem

to get things done.

It looks like Chairman Baek's son

is the one making trouble.

Yes, it didn't seem like

Chairman Baek did it himself.

Chairman Baek's son used

to be a loan shark...

I heard he's interested

in this business.

Abalone, sir.

There's talk that he started

dealings with Southeast Asia.

Why?

He's pushing businesses to hire

Filipina girls instead of Russians.

Assholes. Like father, like son.

It's me...

Moon Suk.

I shouldn't have brought my car...

I hope I'm not interrupting?

Oh, it's okay.

What's that? Abalone?

Get another for me.

Yes, sir.

Hey, sorry about yesterday.

I can't believe that happened.

I just stepped out for a second.

You must have been busy

enough upstairs.

Those guys yesterday

were just local boys.

Nothing to worry about, sir.

What do you think you're doing?

Sir?

Is this how you do business?

- It was just...

- Get out now.

Get out and wait for me!

Be smart.

Things are going good for you now.

But the world is not easy.

You can do 100 things right, but

one mistake can destroy everything.

Okay, I'll keep that in mind.

I'll try to sort things out

with Chairman Baek.

Anyhow, the real reason

I asked you here...

I have to go to Shanghai

tomorrow afternoon on business...

I have a favor to ask

before I leave.

The thing is...

Pour me a drink.

Oh, yes, sir. Sorry.

The truth is,

I have a young girlfriend.

Someone I really care about.

She's not like you and me.

She's a special kind of person.

What, am I boring you?

Uh... Congratulations, sir.

Never mind "Congratulations. "

The problem is, I think

She's seeing a new guy.

Some young guy is hanging around her.

It's driving me crazy,

and I couldn't tell anyone else.

You know, you're the only one

I can really talk to about this.

No one else knows how much

this worries me.

So, I'd like you to watch Heesoo

for just three days.

Watch her?

Watch over her.

Take care of her.

See if she's really seeing someone.

Maybe the bastard's just bothering her.

See whether she's given him

her body and soul and all.

You know young people,

a hand could brush a shoulder...

then they hold hands, then kiss,

and then... you know...

These things happen.

But I can't stand thinking

about her like that.

Stupid, isn't it?

No, sir.

Stupid.

So... I want you to find out

who she's meeting.

And what she does when they meet.

Just for 3 days.

This is Heesoo's address

and phone number.

I hope she's not seeing him,

but if she is...

If they look like they're involved...

Call me right away.

Or finish them off yourself.

Excuse me?

You know I can't stand

being lied to, right?

Love isn't love if you're

being lied to.

You can contact me here

in Shanghai.

Directly.

Have a good night.

Do you have a girlfriend?
