conglomerate, witnesses immoral private issues of her wealthy family.
Meanwhile, he finds out that madam PAIK's husband, Mr. YOON is having
affair with their Filipino housemaid, Eva. He reports what he witnessed
to madam PAIK, and now despaired madam PAIK is greedily seducing
Young-jak in order to keep him on her side . Young-jak is deeper into
madam PAIK's family issues when he finds out the brutally killed Eva.
Lost between his morality and shortcut to successful life, he has to
make the biggest decision he's ever made, to choose whom he will hang on
to, in order to survive in this harsh world, where he wasn't born with a
silver spoon in his mouth.
