Why am I in America?

I already told you!

For business!

I'm here to get back my stolen

business item, you know?

Hottest rising star!

She's the rookie that's making

LEE Hyo-li retire, you asshole!

Where's Mila?

Where the hell is she?

Tell me where she is,

you asshole!

I was close

to getting it back.

But I failed

for health reasons.

Then I fell in love.

She was a ray of light

in the depth of my despair.

Let's get hitched.

I'll give you

five grand now and

five more if we pass

the immigrations.

I don't know what you've heard

but that's nonsense.

Oh, yeah?

You got married

five times because

you fell in love

with all of them?

If it's the money...

We were crazy

about each other.

Real or fake, I'll never

marry a punk like you.

We even broke up once...

Damn it!

... like other

ordinary couples do.

The one who loves more

gets hurt more.

Help me.

I'm dead

if I go back to Korea.

They'll kill me

if I go there!

Please help me.

By the power vested in me,

in the sin city of Las Vegas, Nevada!

I now pronounce you man and wife.

Marriage was a beginning of our life.

Stick in your tongue,

I'll kill you.

You too, Ms. Lee!

Use the tongue, please!

Deeper, deeper!

We talked about

a lot of things coming back.

Hey, lady! What are you

doing with your life?

About our future.

Don't ever run into me

when we're done.

Everything seemed perfect.

Why the hell is she

in such a hurry?


I should've never met her.

Even if I did,

I wish that I loved her

Just the right amount.

Agent Park. What is he saying?

He's saying uh...

That he didn't...

...want to love her...

I know you're suspicious.

Even I never believed in

love like this.

I'll never

be able to love again.

It's as if I've seen the sun and

now I have become blind

and disabled.

Disabled in love.

Having seen the sun,

He has a disability in love.

Is he translating me right?

Thank you ma'am.

And what is this disability in love?

Sir, I think it might be an

Asian expression for...


- Oh.

We got an Asian male

who marries a woman

ten years older than

he is as soon as they meet

which just happens to be a few days

before his visa is to expire.


He doesn't have a particular

place of residence either.


I need you to get

a deportation date on him

as quickly as possible.

And he just might

try to run away so...

contact the local police so they

can help to keep an eye on him.

- Yes, sir.

- Papa!


I missed you, papa!

I'm off the hook!

What a great turn out!

This is the way

it should be!

Children need a guardian!

This is cool!

The three of us!

What a great singer!

You happy? I'm happy!

Everybody's happy!

We're here?

Up the stairs

to the bathroom!

I gotta pee!

- Dude, it's not Rosie.

- Who is it?

Oh, my.

- Oh my gosh.

- We are dead.

Even today

we'd faced her scoldin'

and there's no reason!

Didnt even put that Rosie to cryin'

Or even any broken window!

All the cause of this!

The fool visiting this

hell on Halloween Day!

You don't know MIC!

The fool coming without

knowing any hip to the hop!

You're an ugly gift!

Sent from the down and under!

An ugly gift looking strange to the shady!

We'll keep our eyes on you, ugly!

I got it!

You go that way!

Good morning, ugly!

You're looking nice as usual!



This colorful multinational

troop of kids is your mother's?

Except for you.

They're all her ex-husbands',

and now I have to raise

them to get my visa.

Be patient.

Be patient.

Let's make this easy.

We just gotta pretend to be

a family when we need to.
