Plot: Adapted from the bestselling novel All She Was Worth by Miyabe Miyuki, who is known as the queen of crime fiction in Japan.
A woman suddenly disappears. Her fiance then sets out to find her and, in the process, uncovers layers of dark hidden secrets.
One month prior to Moon-Ho (Lee Sun-Kyun) and Sun-Young's (Kim Min-Hee) wedding, they take a road trip to Andong. Moon-Ho plans to formally introduce his fiance to his parents. Along the way to Andong, they pull over at a highway rest stop. Moon-Ho goes inside, while Sun-Young waits in the car. When Moon-Ho arrives back at his car, he discovers that his fiance has now completely disappeared. Frantic, Moon-Ho looks all over the rest stop and then files a missing person report with the police. Moon-Ho then drives back to Seoul and goes to Sun-Young's small studio apartment. Inside her apartment, Moon-Ho discovers that her apartment has been completely emptied. Moon-Ho then receives a phone call.
The phone call is from a friend that explains that he called Sun-Young and asked about bankruptcy filing from her past. While he asked her about the bankruptcy, Sun-Young abruptly hung up the phone and has not answered her phone. Moon-Ho then goes to the legal office where Sun-Young filed the bankruptcy papers. He looks through her documents and spots a photo of the woman that filed the bankruptcy paper and it is not the Sun-Young that he knows. Moon-Ho is absolutely shocked and confused. Moon-Ho then looks up Sun-Young's work application and goes through her work references. He contacts the companies listed as her prior employers and discovers that she has never worked for those companies. Now with nowhere to turn and unable to get the police's help, because he doesn't even know who she really is, Moon-Ho turns to his cousin Jong-Geun (Jo Sung-Ha) for help. Jong-Geun is a former cop who lost his job due to taking bribes. Moon-Ho now pleads with his cousin to help him locate his fiance and find out who she really is ...
Its not the best way to tell the idea what there is in the film, But performance of the wife, (i dont know her name), was TOP CLASS, film was dreadful, thrilling and held a sad idea of everyday routine. A recommended film. A sad one. but be sure not to watch at night. It will just ruin your sleep. THanks for the uploader.

Koreans also laugh at the absurdity of the mafias in Korean movies, so it's not just you But really, when asking Koreans about the "mafia situation" in their own country, most just laugh and call them little kids when compared to the "scary America and Russian mafias with their guns who kill people everyday in the streets".
