Hey, miss!

Don't be like that.

Come on, you're not

even that pretty.

Okay, fine, fine,

you're pretty.

Think I'm kidding?

Don't you see the truth in me?

I'm sorry, sir,

I must ask you to leave.

- I'm sorry.

- I got it.

It's not a big deal.

Sir, you're upsetting our guests.

I'm sorry.

She and I are not like that.

I'm sorry.

Don't make a big deal out of it.

She and I are really nothing.

This is nuts.

What can I do?

She's the one coming onto me.

What about you?

You haven't changed?

The world has changed.

The world has changed!

Why should we not change too?

I am sorry!

I was beside myself,

men are like that at times.

Forgive me!


I'll do anything for you!

I won't look at anyone

till the day I die.

If I look at someone else,

I'll gouge my eyes out.

Tell me, look at me straight.

What did you do with him?

I'm not done,

am I a plaything to you?

I think you went insane!

Don't do this to me!

Last night,

- What did you do?

- We just had dinner!

What are you doing?!


I don't want to do this anymore...

Please stop!

What happened to us?!

What happened?!

I want to go back.

How could we...

go back to where we were?

Every damn time!

He's doing this

because I was a singing idol!

He slapped me last time,

and now...

why pull out a knife?!

Calm down.

Son of a b*tch!

Why did you bring a knife?

I... just...

I thought it'd bring out

my real feelings.

You're f***ing nuts!

Will you have real sex

during a sex scene?


I can do it,

I'll do my best.

I can't do this anymore,

sir, I'm done...

You're a real piece of work!

You don't know

anything about acting!

Acting is not a solo piece,

it's an ensemble piece!

Do you even see other actors?!

I thought today's

performance was good.

Her acting,

and audience too...

Get the hell out!

Go act with a mannequin

on the streets!

Do whatever you want,

f***ing idiot!

- Sound!

- Speed!

- Camera!

- Roll!

Take 2.



You f***ing rat!


I'm sorry! It's all my fault!


You need a bruise first!

You call yourself a man?

Still want to live?

I'm sorry!

Shut the f*** up!

It's too late!

Please do me a favor!

My mother, please let me

see her one last time!


What the hell?

Who called "cut'?


I did, sir.

Bin, what's wrong?

It was good.

This extra's improv is too much.

His mother's not in the script.

Idiot, stick to the script,

don't break the lead's rhythm.

I'm sorry!

Your improv is

messing up my lines.

Sir, I think he can just

take the hits.

Good, good!

Yo idiot, don't say anything,

just take the hits! Got it?

Let's go again!

Kang Bin's a real

piece of work.

He has the director on a leash.

He wasn't like that before.

Your acting's quite peculiar.

I saw your play,

Mr. Suh's production.

It was a complete mess,

didn't listen to other lines,

blocking was all wrong...

But it was strangely attractive.

I can at least make you

a Kang Bin.

I don't need it,

actorjust has to act well.

In a world where

actors act well,

students study hard,

and gangsters fight well,

people like me aren't needed.

Yes, director!

We all learn

by making mistakes,

no need to avoid my calls.

You're doing films now?

Yes, as an extra.

Heard of Oh Yeon-hee?

Of course, I do.

She was in this play before.

This is for the better.

So-yun was a handful.

Because of you,

she cried her eyes out

and ran off.

Not a lot of actors nowadays.

I will act, if you need me.

There's nothing

you can learn from him.

Did you follow me?

Don't you know

about Oh Yeon-hee?

She was an A-lister,
