One night, in dire straits, the girlfriend suggests they do a sex scam. She claims they won't actually have to do anything, just scam the guy. Minho refuses and after a bit of an argument he shuts her down. The next day, the girl, in an attempt to fix their money situation, decides to do the sex scam without telling her boyfriend and with the help of the friend they find someone.

What I loved about the movie was the strength of their love and how passionate they were. There was no selfishness there, it really gets to you when things go awry.
Just in love with this one.
