Prosecutor's office investigating

the missing microchip at HS Biotech

has failed to build a case against

Kim Taek- su, the chairman

and de facto owner of

the research corporation

Kim's overseas travel ban

was lifted as of yesterday

whichlied to a massive backiash

from angry researchers

The microchip contains

entire research data

on our groundbreaking

research on artificial skin

Chairman Kim is faking an ilness

in an attempt to smuggle out

this multi- million dollartechnology

Multi- million?

You mean billions...

We have a chartered plane

waiting at the airport

How do you feel, Mr. Kim?

You're not going anywhere

What the heck?

Don't let them pass

Don't touch me

Come on, Hyeon- cheol!

Let's go after him

Security check at departure

is tightened

They're giving me

a hearty send- off

I'll start the procedure

Look out!

How do we stop the ambulance?


What the heck is

that punk doing?

Get him out of my face

He gets up from the gurney

and throws thingsin rage

I thought the chip would

turn up in the search

Forget the police

Let's find it by ourselves

Drop me off here

My car is parked right across

We were great today

Haven't seen you

smile in a while

How can I when I'm

out of food at home?

I'm getting pocket money from

my daughter Pathetic, eh?

- Things must be tough foryou too

- I'm fine

As long as we get the chip back

we can raise fundings to reopen the lab

And get all the unpaid

research fees Sweet!

I don't seem to be able

to shut up today

See you tomorrow kid


- What?

- I'm not coming in to work

I'm starting at a food

company's lab in two days

I understand

I did wrong by you I'm so sorry

See ya

Take care, Chief

Call me bro from now

I'm not your boss anymore


Are you... Jin- su's daughter?

Are you Han Dong- hwa?


He just came out of

an emergency surgery

No, I'm at the police station

not the hospital

You gotta contribute what

you can I'm begging you!

- No battery

- Hello? Hello?

We're like family and

our brother is in trouble

- Put yourself in his shoes

- This is no hit and run

- What do you mean?

- They used a stolen registration plate

and carefully chose an exit route

to avoid surveillance cameras

It was premeditated

- Can I help?

- I'm here for Han Jin- su

You're the victim's daughter?

This way please

Thank you foryour statement

You can go now


Does yourfather have enemies?

- Enemies?

- Yes

Going to the hospital? Hop in

Who would hold

a grudge against him?

The man is practically a saint

There is only one man who can do this

The bastard's not even human

You should've just

finished him off

We can't take risks

for our own sake

Leave it all to me

American buyers are bailing out

We'll have Dr. Johnson notify

them about the situation

Do we have another

exit plan for me?

I got one set up

You'll find out by tomorrow

You have to nothing to worry about

- Take the doctorto the airport

- Yes, sir Follow me

Johnson on the move

The deal is closed?

- Set up a tracker on the vehicle

- Yes, sir

Urgh, dirrrrty! All these litters

They're moving away Hurry!

What's he doing?

Sweet Jesus, my leg...

My leg hurts!

Return to base

I stopped by on the way to work

Did you get some sleep?

Sleep? How could I?

BS Biotech Chairman Kim Taek- su

- Bastards!

- I'll kill them

What are you going to do?

It's like hitting a rock with an egg

Who are you calling an egg?

You gotta be cracked to pieces

before you know that?

I know that you are definitely one

We gotta think about Jin- gu

About saving yourfather

- We gotta come up with the money

- How?

Let's think about it

We'll get money from them

Whether by begging or pleading

or by blackmailing them!

Maybe not blackmailing...

We'll threaten them fortheir lives


Kim Taek- su who was being

/nvestigated for a stoien microchip

died of heart attack this morning

Kim was scheduied to travel to US

to treat his heart condition

when an emergency travel ban

was enforced two days ago

and he has been staying

at a hospital in Seoul

Kim's representative biamed

the prosecution for Kim's death

and stated that his family will seek

justice against the authority

as soon as funeral procedure is over

It happened suddenly

We turned the hospital upside down

but the chip wasn't there

Did you get the result back

on the blood sample?

Came back negative fortoxins

Handle the transfer

with greatest care

Memorial altar is set up

at the hospital

but the official funeral

will take place

in the States attended

by family members

The latest development is likely to

put the investigation in jeopardy...

I only thought about it

and he drops dead

I've had people dodging calls

to avoid paying me

but dying on me is a first

I was once ripped off for 780 bucks

by a convenient store owner

I crashed his wedding

to get my money

Do you mind?

What about the funeral?

What's the most important

thing in a funeral?

The body

The body?

The body goes missing We steal

the body and demand a ransom

Should be easier

than kidnapping


Have you lost your mind?

The hospital bill is snowballing

by 500 dollars a day

There's gotta be

some other way

What other way?

Should I turn tricks?

Watch your mouth

They owe you money too

Are you in or what?

Don't care, do you? It's a war for me

if I get ripped off for a month's pay
