Yeo-Jin, not yet twenty years old, lives with her father, a widower. She helps her friend Jae-Young in a rather special way: Jae-Young works as a prostitute while Yeo-Jin selects the clients and makes sure the business has a good functioning, against her better judgment. One day, Jae-Young falls in love with a client and invites him for a diner for three. Upset by the excessive intimacy, Yeo-Jin gets angry and cancels the rendezvous. Soon after, Yeo-Jin makes a mistake with fatal consequences. She is on the outlook as usual when Jae-Young enters a motel with a man. But this time, Yeo-Jin did not notice the presence of police men tracking down minor prostitutes.
Kim Ki-duk was awarded the silver Bear of best director for Samaria at Berlin in 2004.
“The violence seen in my films depicts a part of Korean society’s reality. I do not invent anything. Most of my scripts are inspired by my own experience.” Kim Ki-duk
