You had some more space.

How could you park like that?

It's all right.

I'll be out in a jiffy anyway.

Written and Directed by NA Hong-jin

This way.

Sir, so is that your car?

You bitch,

you're dead if I catch you.

The Chaser



I'm back!

I'm sorry, sir.

Two of our girls ran away.

Business has been bad lately.

I've already put

such a big advance on those girls.

But sir, I can't get that much money

ready in three days.

Once I collect the money from them,

and pay you back...

Turn it off, asshole!

Can't you see

I was on the phone?

You have no fucking manners.

Did you hand them out?

- Yes, sir.

- Go hand out some more, idiot!

Dumb asshole.



Hapjung district.

Provence Motel, room 301.

I'll send her now.

- Hello.

- Hey.

You came fast.


you don't look so young.

- How old are you?

- Thirty.

You took good care of yourself.

Nice body.

Why? Need to go pee?

- Yes.

- Later.

- No.

- Go later.

I told you to go later.

- What's wrong?

- Let go.

- Just wanted to take some pictures.

- Let go!

Okay, I'll pay you instead.

Let go, you pervert!


Crazy assholes.

Where is she?

You fucking slut!

You call me a pervert, huh?

Watch your mouth, bitch!

You want to die, huh?

Come here, you bitch!

- Mister.

- You're dead!

She's leaving.

Calm down.

- Get out!

- Come here, bitch!

- Mister.

- Come over here!

- She's leaving.

- Bitch...

Come here, you bitch!

You're dead!

- She's leaving now.

- You bitch!

- Calm down...

- What the f*ck...

Who the hell are you?

I'm her guardian, asshole.

Sit down.

Kneel down.

Cover yourself!

So what are you going to do?

Let's settle this.


There you are.

Let me see.

I'm quitting for real.

Don't call me.



Did you find the girls?

Where did you find the car?

In Mangwon district.

Did you call the police?

You crazy?

Report girls who

ran away from me?

I told you they didn't run away.

You used to be a detective.

Then go find them

instead of ripping people off.

You crazy bitch,

who says I'm ripping people off?

I'm the one

who's being ripped off.

Bitches get a big advance from me

and then disappear.

Ask any asshole on the street

what it means.

Whether they've been sold

or ran away.

Rotten bastard.


Hey! Seong-hee!

That damn temper of hers.



This bastard keeps rejecting the girls

and now there's no one left.

There's Mi-jin, idiot.

She wants to rest

because she's caught a cold.

Cold my ass. I'm hanging up.

What the f*ck's wrong

with everyone?




Take the medicine.

Bring me my cell phone, honey.


Yes, Jung-ho.

Where are you?

I'm sorry. I'm very sick.

Where are you sick?

I think it's a cold.
