Hey! That's a foul!

At long last, the Kris of Kings,

one of the most valuable treasures

in Thai history,

has been returned to

its rightful home once again.

This Kris is extremely important

and constitutes a remarkable

cultural heritage of Thailand.

There is a legend which has been told

for generations,

that whoever possesses this Kris

will have the power to rule the world.

I'm sorry, how much is it worth?

Well, it's far too valuable to put

a monetary value to it.

But if I had to hazard a guess,

I would say...

$30 million U.S. Dollars.

When will the public be allowed to see it?

Get ready. We leave tomorrow.

Dad. Please.



Gather around!

Taeyang? How long till the Olympic tryouts?

About a month.

Exactly 28 days.

You start special training today, understood?

Do I really have to tryout, Dad?


I'm kind of busy with school.

And I don't feel too hot.

Olympic tryouts or get out of my house.

We have a show tonight to mark

Taekwondo Day.

Be at the event hall by 6PM, Understood?


The Taekwondo Family Motto! One!

Always strive for justice.

Louder! Two!

Be loyal to your country and obedient

to your parents.


Love your family as you love yourself.




Will we even make it by midnight like this?

I'm not going too slow.

They're going too fast.

They're all going over the speed limit!

Are you licking the pendant?

On behalf of SD Company

I congratulate the inauguration of

Taekwondo Day in Thailand.

Never seen you before. Are you new?


All of you?

Yes, sir.

What's your name?


Transport it carefully.

Yes, sir.

Who are you?

I wasn't told about anyone named Somchai.

Arrest 'em all!

For the continued success of Taekwondo

SD company promises to

provide extensive support.

A big round of applause, please.

No manners, parking like that

in the unloading zone.

Get out here.

Oops, sorry.

What the!

Right away, sir!

Look what hit my car.

When this thing is about to fall apart.

I wonder if he's okay.

Excuse me,

Breaking news.

The legendary 'Kris of Kings'

has been stolen by an unidentified group.

Why you little!

Get out!

Are you okay?

- That fool.

- Come out, now!

Come out!

Come out!




- Are you okay?

- Yes, Mommy.

- Forget it. Let's go in.

- Dare run away from me!

Damn fool!

Typhoon! Seat belt!

- Mija!

- He's so dead!

Mija! Stop! What are you doing!

- Where are you going?

- Quiet!

A black Benz was involved in

a hit-and-run incident!

Are you okay?

Watch out for that car!

Hey! Slow down!

Mister? Where are you running off to?

Gave up trying to escape, huh?

You're so busted!

Stay still, Mija.

Stay here.

Today's your funeral!


Hey you!


Hey, Mister!

You're not going anywhere!

What are you doing here?

Can't you see for yourself? Damn it.

You're all dead meat.

- Are you okay, Mija?

- I'm alright.

Get him!

He's getting away!

That way!


Let go!

I'm really sorry, sir.

And in breaking news this afternoon

a brave Korean family of

martial artists thwarted

an attempted robbery

of a Thai National Treasure.

The Thai government has made an official

statement that the Kris of Kings exhibition

will take place as scheduled

at the Thai Museum under heavy security

In addition, on the final day of the exhibition

there will be a special performance

by this Taekwondo Family, the heroes

who helped save our national treasure.

This is becoming quite amusing.

Taeyang? Out all night, again?

Quiet, will ya?

You be quiet. Mom!

What are you doing!



Come on! Be quiet!
