Hyung-wook (Yu Hae-jin) is a charismatic contract killer with a perfect record, but winds up being taken to the hospital by paramedics, including the lovely Ri-Na (Jo Yoon-hee), after a bathhouse slip. Meanwhile, struggling actor Jae-sung (Lee Joon) can't even pay his rent and decides to end his life, but not before cleaning himself up. When he witnesses the slick-dressed hit man take a fall, he switches their locker keys on a whim, and unintentionally their entire identities as well. Hyung-wook wakes up without a memory, only to learn he is...a broke actor named Jae-sung? Both men try to embrace their new lives, to hilarious effect.
Director Lee Gye-byeok's hit comedy Luck-Key (2016) gave veteran character actor Yu Hae-jin a chance to play the lead, earning him nominations for Best Actor at the Baeksang Arts Awards and Chunsa Film Art Awards and the top prize from the University Film Festival of Korea.
In Korean with English subtitles. 112 minutes.
