There was a man.

He came out of nowhere

and pushed our society into chaos.

He was...


My name is Gu, Park Gu.

Could you... sit down?


On the chair.

Right, I'm sorry.

Go on.



A mutant.

Make way!

It's been 5 years, since he was last seen,

and we still don't know much about him.

"Revolutionary Evolution,

or Scientific Curse?"

To some, he was a hero,

to others, he was a con man.

He was someone's friend,

someone's celebrity,

someone's god...

Wipe out commies!

And someone's devil.

He made us laugh

and cry.

The story of a man,

who was also a fish...

begins here.

That stupid idiot...

See this?

"No smoking"

I'm fed up telling you

not to smoke while editing!

Still not over this sh*t?

Is the sting ray diner segment done?

What's there to edit? It's a diner.

Cut some reaction shots together.

Watch what you're saying.

Buddy, even making

one cut requires philosophy!

I was there, the uptown joint.

They taste like sh*t, know that?

Look, we're pro all here, don't be a baby.

How much bribe have you taken, dammit!

Was it me alone? Really?

Company dinners, extra cash,

they all came from somewhere!


I'm looking out for your own good,

please stop watching this.

Aside from you, no one cares about him!

Are you done?

You got a guest, a**hole!


Been a while.

You're a big shot now, saw you on TV.

You left something out, didn't you?


You didn't know?

What is this? So random.

Do you still work on it? The documentary?

It's all over...

Too busy making ends meet.


Or not?

Got a light?

Don't give up.

It'd be a shame, you're his last hope.

I first met Jin 5 years ago.

"5 years ago, ABS Station"

I wish to represent the people

and uncover the truth,

report the injustice in our society...

Report the injustice in our society,

protect the weak,

and become a...


I... really want to be a real reporter.


I wish to represent the people

and uncover the truth,

report the injustice in our society...

Community college?


Any skills?

I can do everything well,

if you give me a chance.

Can you get us an interview?


Not a hard assignment.

So am I hired?


We came upon a strange girl.

"Full Account of the Fish Man"

She claims her boyfriend turned into a fish.

Messed up, right?

Sh*t! Fish Man is REAL!"

There's a big flame war online,

debating the veracity of the story.

But she won't ever back down,

she's a prickly one.

Go and get her interview.

It'd be good if you find out

why she's making stuff up.

You're not hired yet, so no mention of ABS.

Don't go too deep.

Because of the strike here,

I got no one to assign this to.

Let's see how you work, then I'll decide.

Do your best.

"F***ing b*tch"


Anyone home?

Is Ms. Violent Monster here?

Violent Monster! Are you in?

Who are you?

Clinical trial?

Yeah, $300 in 2 days for taking a pill.

$300? That much?


My body felt weird a day into it.

Then they did weird tests, but I escaped.

So what?

You can't show up out of the blue.

You may've misunderstood our relationship.

That night...

we were both drunk.

I got nowhere to go.


They know where I live.

Those bastards.

"Ganmi Medical Hotline 031-521-1865"

Do you want...

more tea?

Your room...

is really nice.

I was too drunk to notice it before.

Girl rooms are nice.

This is Ganmi Medical.

- You got an escape...

- To inquire about...

- Hello? Hello?

- Press 2 for product info...

I wanted to...

Press 4 for recruitment...

- Press 5 for A/S

- Ask you about something.

Press 6 for public relations,

press 7 for manufacturing...

- Are you listening?

- What?

Press 8 for research programs.

Yeah, of course.

The thing about us...

- Press 0 for an operator.

- Operator!


This is Ganmi Medical.

How much will you pay...

Are we?

To have your escapee back?

Say what?

I sold him.

That cheap bastard.

You said you two were an item.

So what?

Why can't I? It's a capitalistic society.

And we weren't really dating.


A one-night stand.

One-night stand?

The thing is,

I met him when I worked as an extra,

I was Palace Maid 3.

And Eunuch was really coming onto me.

I was really popular on the set.

But I didn't really like him.

He felt so phony.

Always hitting on me, asking me to go drinking.

He was so persistent, so I set up a date.

To screw him over.

So I took other maids with me.

Then he took us all to a super fancy place.

He went overboard.

But I thought he was a bit cute,

thinking that he really liked me,

and I was a bit drunk.

So we hooked up.

- With the Eunuch?

- Yes.

Is that wrong? We're all young.

Of course, nothing wrong.

So how did the Eunuch become the fish man?

No, he was the Horse.


He played the Horse.

- It's not a real horse?

- No! You didn't know?

But how?

Anyway! Gossip went around the following day,

the Eunuch got in a fight with the Prince.

I was actually dating the Prince at the time.

- The Prince?

- Yes.

But the Eunuch...

I was really popular!

- Right.

- Anyway, during the fight,

the Prince got hurt.

So it became a big deal,

cause he couldn't work.

You know what's funny?

The boss called me the next day,

and asked me to quit the job!

That's the problem with Korea!


Turns out,

that Maid 4 b*tch bad-mouthed me.

We are our worst enemy!

"Maid 4 is a b*tch!"
