Why are you here alone?

Where's your mom?

When did the symptoms start?

A few days ago.

It itches and aches when I pee.

And yellow discharge

on your panties?


When was your last intercourse?

It's gonorrhea, isn't it?

Yes, very likely.

We should run a urine test first.

Damn fucker.

Should've used a condom.

I don't have time for this.

Cure me fast, Doctor.

Yes, but the test first.


You know where

the pharmacy is, right?

- Call the security!

- Yes, sir.

Come quickly!

Are you okay, Doctor?

Are you crazy?

Stop right there!

Don't move!

Call the police!




Don't come, Min-ho!

Run away!

- Mommy!

- Don't come!

- You! Come here!

- Stay still!

Run away!


Watch out, kid!

My goodness...

Are you okay?

You're not hurt?

Stay still.

Let's go this way.

What's with you?

Calm down.

Why are you home so early?

No business today.

Product is out of order.


You're sick again?

Don't ask.

I'm not in the mood.

Who's that?

I picked it up on the street.

Don't be mean.


Time to go to work.

She ate it up.

Don't you ever say hello?


I said hello.

Ah... hello to you, too.

Get in. Get in there.

That's right.

Take off your shoes.

Your shoes.

That's right.

Come in. In here.

You're not talking?

English okay?

What you name?

Where you from?


Are you hurt?

Gosh, you're hurt.

Hold on.

It's almost done.

I must be crazy,

bringing you home.

If you don't eat,

it's your loss.

Eat, eat.


Hurry up.


Good boy.


Yes, eat up.


Are you in there?


Who is it?

It's me.

What do you want?

The sun is up high and

you're still in bed?

Damn headache.

I went to bed in the morning.

You drank all night again.

Babysit him today.

What? Hell no.

I'm bad with kids.


Oh, excuse me.

You have a guest.

Never mind, then.

I'll ask Do-hoon.

- Sorry, sis.

- It's okay.


I'll come home early.

Tina is with someone.


The bald guy?


Shit, that Korean-Japanese yakuza.

Why do you care?

It's none of your business.

So you'll watch him today?


Hey buddy, how are you?

What's your name?

He probably doesn't speak Korean.

Then what should I do?

Just watch him,

and feed him on time.

I don't even keep

my own meal times.

Don't be difficult.

Help me out.

All right.

Hey, let's go in.

- Go on.

- Come with me.

- See you later.

- Okay, see you.

What's your name?

You don't speak English?

First time around here?


Would you like a bottle of Bacchus?

I'll show you a good time.


Are you that famous...

You better be good.

My expectations are high.


Why don't we try

something new today?

I'm having some issues.

I can't have intercourse today.

Why not?

I'm having... my period.

Are you?

Damn it.

I should've told you.

I am sorry.

- But I won't disappoint you.

- All right.

You'd better be worth it.

Of course.

Do you need this?

- No.

- I see.

Let me have that.

Waiting for someone?


Yes, well...

How about a date with me?

A date?

Don't you know what I mean?

A good time for a good price.

Let's go.

How much is it?

Forty dollars,

but thirty for you, handsome.

Room charge is included.

Let's go.

Come on.

Take a shower if you want.

Make yourself at home.

No thanks.

I already showered.

Then wait a second.

All right.

Have you done this for long?

Why do you ask?

I just...

Not that long.

How did you get into this?

To send my son in the U.S.

Tuition money.

I'll quit when he gets

his master's degree.

I see.

How much do you earn a day?

Why do you keep calling?
