You eat fish really well.

You like them?

Can't have enough.

It's good raw,

fried, and in

any shape or form.

- I don't eat them.

- Why not?

The thing about fish is,

look at it,

they die with open eyes.

It looks like they're

glaring at me, talking shit.

I don't like fish.

What about anchovies?

I know you eat them.

Anchovies are cool.

They're fish too,

with eyes no less.

They got tiny beady eyes.

I can't look in the eye

when I'm working.

But Jae-ho's the opposite.

He kills while looking

at them in the eye.

So he eats fish so well,

he only eats fish.

You get animated when you

talk about Mr. Han Jae-ho.

All giddy.

I don't think he has

guilty conscience.

But that's not always so bad.

lt completely advanced

our methods of work.

In the Stone Age,

they used stones to kill.

ln Bronze and Iron Ages,

knives and axes.

Nowadays, it's a gun.

Guns mitigate guilty conscience.

Probably due to longer range.

What the hell

are you saying?


Can't bear to watch.

Very good, Nikolai.

Release day

So tacky.

The sideline show.

The color of this car.

The tofu tradition's the worst.

That's mine.

Where's mine?



There is only one woman

that I respect,

and that's you,

Chief Cheon.

That tenacity of yours.

My legal team wants to

file a lawsuit against you

for all the loss of

our work hours.

But I shut them down swiftly.

Respect breeds respect,

that's how we earn respect.

For a country so small,

it's overflowing with chairmen.

I don't have any personal

vendetta against you.

It's my job to chase dope pushers

like you, Chairman Ko.

That's how I earn my salary

and promotion.

Help me out.

Go help a dog jerk off,

bring us the evidence.

This is Russian Beluga caviar,

it's comparable to

your month's pay.

Would you like to try?

Fingering is all you got?

Haven't gotten it up

in a while?

Fucking bitch.

Get on your knees

and take it.

Been a while, Chief!

Still beautiful as ever!

A newbie?

Who are you?

Lady, no need for

dick measuring already.

I don't believe this.


Feast on good food,

f*ck a lot of bimbos

while you can.

You'll all end up in the joint

and jerk off to a pin-up.

Isn't that right, Mr. Han?

3 years ago,

Gyeonggi Penitentiary


Next challenger!


Come the f*ck out!

There! We got one!

I don't know if I should,

wind could knock him out.

Alright, alright!



bite down hard,

don't lose your tongue.

Son of a bitch!

That was a fist!

You cheating f*ck!

He hit me with a fist!

Let's head back,

it's embarrassing.

That was a fist,

you sneaky f*ck.

It was a slap,

you bald ass f*ck.

Son of a bitch!

What the f*ck!


Get him!

Wait, wait!

You cheating f*ck!


I hit you like this.

You fucking dumbass!

This is my fist!

A revolutionary moron!

What is it?

There are 2 types of assholes

behind these walls.

Those you can f*ck with

and those you shouldn't.

The ones you fucked with today

were the latter.

And you?

What do you think?

The one I shouldn't?


I'm the one

who draws the line.

Don't raise your sentence

for no reason.


Even your bruises

are pretty.


You've received

grace of the Lord.

Those brutes aren't

the type to let things go.

They decided to let

the kitchen incident slide.

As a fellow child of God,

why don't we become friends?

I'm not religious.

These criminals won't get me

when I'm near you.

He must be tight

with the guards.

Probably about the ciggy tax.
