One day, Han-ki, a hoodlum of a big Korean city, notices the young student Sun-hwa in a park. Attracted by Sun-hwa, Han-ki kisses her without saying a word and gets slapped. Still obsessed by Sun-hwa, Han-ki schemes to force the young girl to work for him as a prostitute in the hot quarter of the city. Hidden behind a two-way mirror, Han-ki will witness, day after day, Sun-hwa's tricks and protect her against from the hard law of the streets. When Sun-hwa finally understands that she's been manipulated from the start by Han-ki, a love-hate relation will uprise between these completely different characters.
