I wanted to talk

with a Korean woman.

I don't remember much of Korea.

And Korean language,

I've almost forgot everything.

I was adopted when

I was 5 years old.

And you?

How long have you been here?


Hey you drunks!

If you fight,

I will give you 10 euros!

10 euros if you fight!

F*ck, what shitty luck!

Are you Korean?

What's it to you?

Hey dude!

Come have a drink with us.

We often see you,

but we don't even know your name.

I won't hurt you.

Come have a drink.

Where are you from, Asian friend?

Good evening,

your attention, please.

France still wants to

fight against prostitution.

Get involved.

Tomorrow there will be

a big demonstration at 1 pm,

Place de Clichy,

to stand up for your rights.

Your customers will be punished for

any offence. We support you.

Here it is. At 1 pm.,

Place de Clichy.

Get involved. You have rights.

Claim them.

He is a great guy.

He wants to change things.

He is like you.

He never gives up.

Have you seen her?

Have you seen her?

Have you seen her?

Have you seen her?

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I am sorry to bother you.

I would like to ask you

if you could help me,

Any spare change

so that I may eat?

I have been unemployed

for three months.

Chang, aren't you

coming back home?

No, we have already talked about it.

Hey you!

Dirty pervert!


Are you all right?

Leave me alone!


I don't know what got

into me the other night.

I heard about you.

I just wanted to talk.

I have nothing to say.

See you next time.

I am Chang.

Me too, I'm of Korean origin.

I want to do it again.

Darling, I'm afraid of waten

When I look at water,

it feels like something draws me into it.

You have too much imagination.

That's why you often

have strange dreams.

What is he saying?

We are Korean.


Yes, Hello?

Hey, tourists!

Do you want to buy a book from me?

So I can give some food to my dog.

This is a book about the Louvre.

I'll sell it cheap.

In Paris, there are many

beggars and dogs.

But how can this beggar take

care of his dog without money?

It is the government that gives money.

Parisians have more pity for

dogs than for homeless people.

Such a poor dog to inherit

a beggar for his master.

Dogs are really happy if

they have a loving master.

Darling, the book we

bought was cheap, right?

Yes, this is a new book. It's good

because we're going to the Louvre.

Oh, I don't really enjoy

touristy sights like the Louvre.

If you come to Paris,

you should go to the Louvre.

I want to see the lively side of Paris.

Oh, I'll show you this

side of Paris, too.

Darling, what we saw in the

cinema was really something, right?

No, it was nothing special.

He was a prostitute, right?

He gave him money after.

How does a man f*ck another man?


it's something dirty.

Darling, there must be a reason.

There's no reason.

It's dirty, that's all.

They are prostitutes, right?

Hmm, I don't know.

What's that bus for?

They gave me a lot of condoms.

Yeon-wha, why did you take them?

Why not?


Yeon-wha, what's the matter?

Darling, lick me.


Do it quickly,


Oh no, the ice cream is all melted.

Why didn't you eat it?

Why don't you wear

your wedding ring?

Oh, because it's annoying

when I wash my hands

Still, it is our wedding ring.

I can put it

Give it to me.

Come here.

It's okay like this, right?

Haha, yes. I'm going

to buy some cigarettes.

I am sorry

Do you really think that

she was kidnapped?

Don't get me wrong.

I just wanted to know.

What are you going to do

if she's left on her own?
