THE GRAND HEIS Do you have Artist Choi's

"Secret Night Encounters"?

If it's Artist Choi,

do you mean Choi Ki-soo?

No it's Choi Chil-chil's

illustration that has value.

You know your books.

There is Makdol's manuscript

of Choi Chil-chil's illustrations.

No, you're wrong.

Yes, but Choon-sam's version

is the most valuable one.

That book is hard to get.

Yes, it is quite difficult, but...

"Secret Night Encounters"

You got it?

Of course!

Oh, it's priceless.

Why'd you come so late?

Got some books from the West.

The West?

Let's take a look!

This is strange.

This is embarrassing.

People are watching.

Hey, cover me!

Hey! My pants!

Why chase her all the time?

You even don't know her name.

She needs to be this great...

To be a real woman, dummy.

Are you okay, sir?

You'll live with a cold if you keep

counting all that ice every day.

Don't worry about me.

Just get things ready.

Distribution of ice will begin!

I need ice for the children

exhausted from the heat.

No, I must follow the regulations.

You even give this ice to prisoners

in the public jailhouse.

Children having a heat stroke need ice.

It's an emergency.

I still cannot.

Come on, just give her some ice.


Wait in line!

Hey, I'm a slave of First Vice-Premier

Cho Myung-soo.

Is a slave of the First Vice-Premier

the same rank as him?

Well, not exactly...

That crazy bastard!

Go away, you lunatic!

Stop where you are!

I said stop!

Get out of my way!

I said move it!

Sorry about this.

Stop where you are!

Ouch! It's cold!


Isn't that ice?


Let's go!

Hurry, you jackass!

Hurry! Hurry!

Stop where you are!

You jackass!

Stop following me!

What did I do wrong?

So who is that guy?

Lee Duk-moo.

Son of Lee Sung-ho,

the Second Vice-Premier.

And son of a concubine.

If he's in that family,

why didn't he use their ice?

But he's the son of a concubine.

Like us.

He was very bright, but he didn't

study for the civil service exam.

He just hangs around book stores all the time.


Taking care of these orphans

must be a tough job.


Someone graciously left us ice.

Let's go!

Lee Duk-moo...

It hurts!

Stay still.

What are you putting on me?

I shredded peppers, cigarette foliage,

and slugs into it.

It works fast if you rub it on you twice a day.

Who said so?

This book.

The Netherlands...

A country in the west millions of miles away,

A doctor there had written it.

Now you're going as far as the West.

I wish I could see it in person.

There? Millions of miles away?

Yeah, who says that I can't go?

Anyway, you know how to read this stuff?

How can I read that?

I just looked at the pictures.

Go figure.

The pain has disappeared.

It also feels like it's gotten numb.

It works, indeed.
