If you expect Shu Qi to speak some Annyong ha shimnikka in her first Korean outing, then you will be disappointed.

The story is kind of confusing. A-ryong (Shu Qi, a Taiwanese starlet who made big in Hong Kong category 3 movies) is a daughter of a Hong Kong triad head (Ti Lung) and a Korean mum. She has offended some rival gangs and goes to seek refute in Korea.

She hires an incompetent translator who speaks weird Mandarin, and stays with 3 Korean gang members who loves toilet and sexual jokes. Despite conversing in Cantonese, translating to Korean, and back to Mandarin, she falls in love with a muddle headed and useless Korean man. Ah huh.

This tight-lipped (silent) and thick-lipped (sexy) girl does a ‘kill-bill’ to protect her man from dangers, showing her prowess by beating 20 other hot-blooded Korean men with her sword fighting and punches.

I still do not understand why you would fall in love with that Korean nitwit. The audience also do not understand the many languages in a single movie. But who cares. Way to go girl!
