Shin Jung Il is a retired senior official who maintains a positive outlook and accepts everything life throws at him. Although others dismiss him as old, he thinks of himself as young because he believes people should be valued according to their attitude rather than number of years. Because he lives his life to the fullest, he embraces even the idea of death as a friend, understanding it to be part of the essence of life.
You’ve seen it before: gangsters trying to force people to move from their homes in order to clear out the area to make way for corporate construction. Pil Je (Lim Chang Jung, Sex is Zero) is exactly one of these thugs, raising a fuss with the entire neighborhood and trying all he can to drive the residents away so his boss and his people can build that new and shiny complex. Most people tend to be scared of Pil Je, but Myeong Ran (Ha Ji Won, Hwang Jin Yi) is not too impressed. An aspiring boxer, Myeong Ran isn’t scared by Pil Je one bit; on the contrary, she’s starting to look as menacing as some of the people Pil Je has to deal with in his line of business. But as he gets to know her and the locals more, Pil Je senses himself changing, changing enough for a miracle to happen?
