Christmas Day, 2004

The Indian Ocean near Indonesia

Keep your eyes open!

Hurry up, guys!

Did they find them?

The Eok-jo, right?

You're sure?

Don't let them die out there!

Did they find my father?

They did. Don't worry!

-We've got great news, everyone!

-Are they all safe?

Let's get the fucking hell out of here,

you motherfucker!


Stop it and go.

Just hold on for a little longer!

Sons of bitches! You're not gonna help?



Please take care of Yeon-hee for me, okay?

Don't say that.

I'm getting you out of here.

Get out of here.


The tsunami's killed

thousands in Southeast Asia.

Here's more from our correspondent.

People evacuate as giant waves

rush into the coastal area.

After it struck, the coast was

left with ruins and corpses.

At 10 p.m., an earthquake measuring 8.9

struck near Sumatra Island.

The following tidal waves caused

damage in India, Sri Lanka...

My daddy is gone.

"Tidal Wave"

The earthquake in Japan has struck

mostly on the east side,

but now it's being felt more frequently

on the west side, close to our border.

Come on, son. Sing. 1, 2, 3.

Playing is always fun

Gather up, friends

Attaboy, Seung-hyun!

It's always fun

Yeon-hee! I'm starving!


-Seung-hyun, here we go.

-Pulling out his tooth?

-Sorry, son.

I won't do it.

-Where's Yeon-hee?

-On deliveries!



-Come out now!



-What about Yeon-hee?

-Come out!


I told you not to sell here!

I told you very clearly!

Step aside!

Where do you get off trying to sell fish

in front of someone else's

seafood restaurant?

You're right.

What are you doing?

Aren't you gonna apologise?

You got nothing to say, do you?

-You've got nothing to say for yourself?

-No, nothing.

Orphaned children all seem to act like that.

Don't talk that way.

How dare you look at me like that?

Stop glaring at her.

What? You know I'm right!

-When did I ever act like that?

-Stop talking back!

What did you just say?

Did you ever support me

when my parents died?

What? This bitch just doesn't get it.

Say it again!

Stop it, Mom!

Yeon-hee, calm down!

Did you allow her to sell here?

You bastard!

You stupid fool!

You're the chief of the

Prosperity Association!

Why do you always side with her?

That's why she acts like this!

That's not it.

What do you mean, that's not it?

I'm not gonna put up with this any more!

Let's see this till the end.

Mom! Stop it!

- (Sang-ryeol) Sit!

- (Dong-choon) Everyone, sit down!

I told you not to do that around the arcade.

People see this, you setting up shop

in front of their arcade,

how do you think

it will affect my reputation?

Anyhow, you should show

some respect to your elders.

Your mom should know

how to behave, too!

Yeah, I know.

But even though I want to

give you every convenience,

I never asked for any favours.

I didn't mean it.

Stubborn girl.

Like you representatives all know, Haeundae

is already a world-class resort area.

It doesn't make sense not to have

a single mall in a place like...

Hey, you bastard!

You already made tons of money.

Now you want to destroy this place!

You damn jerk!

Let go, you damned jerk!

Let's move to the next block.

Let go of me! You motherfuckers!

I hate that scumbag.

Professor Kim continues to persist

with his talk of a mega-tsunami,

can we get more specific information?

Before we do that,

you'd better define tsunami jargon.

Would you mind refraining from

using the term ''mega-tsunami''?

It makes everyone very uneasy.
