Plot Synopsis: Go-Ni loses his entire savings and the money that he stole from his sister in the high stakes card game know as â€œHwatu.â€ Go-Ni figures out shortly after the game that he was swindled and he spends the next 6 months tracking down the person that robbed him of his money.
In the process of his search for the swindler, he encounters Mr. Pyeong, a so called â€œTazzaâ€ (a professional gambler at the top of his game). Go-Ni soon becomes a pupil of Mr. Pyeong and vows to win 5x times the money that he lost on that fateful day. Go-Ni learns that Mr. Pyeong is one of the three greatest gamblers in the land, the other two being Agwee and One Ear. Go-Ni also learns that the reason why One Ear is known as â€œOne Earâ€ is that Agwee chopped off his ear for cheating and chopped off his arm for losing. Agwee still has a score to settle with Mr. Pyeong.
While learning the tricks of trade, Go-Ni is introduced to a Madame Jeong by Mr. Pyeong. Madame Jeong has the looks to kill and uses every inch of that to her advantage. After Go-Ni and Madame Jeong start working as a team, they find out that Mr. Pyeong was murdered. Madame Jeong also realizes that she is falling in love with Go-Ni.
Go-Ni now leaves Madame Jeong to track down Agwee and seek revenge. During his pursuit of Agwee, Go-Ni encounters more treacherous characters including a mob boss and the person that originally swindled him out of his savings. He also falls in love with a young woman that works in a bar. What Go-Ni is not aware of is that Agwee is also in pursuit of Go-ni. Agwee is finally able to use Madame Jeong to set up one last deadly game of hwatu with Go-Ni.
