Meet Cha Eun Jin, who is a bit of an anomaly in the Korean criminal underground. This scrappy 26-year old, orphaned and separated from her older sister when she was still a child, has fought her way up the food chain to become the leader of her own gang. Known in mob circles as Mantis, her skills in hand-to-hand and weapons combat are unsurpassed, and anyone who crosses her can expect a beating, her own men included. Having grown up in such a male-dominated and violence-prone environment, Eun Jin has adopted a tomboy lifestyle, walking, talking, and dressing like a man.

However, this is all turned upside-down when Eun Jin finally is reunited with her long-lost sister. Unfortunately, she is dying from cancer and asks a favour of Eun Jin: to get married and settle down. So what does the legendary gang leader do? She sends out her men to find a husband for her, as quickly as possible. Of course, this is easier said than done.
Though they hire a professional to give Eun Jin a makeover and give her dating lessons, this ends up backfiring as she keeps lapsing back into gangster mode.

Finally, Eun Jin settles on Kang Su Il, a civil servant who has no idea what is going on most of the time. Seeing Su Il as the quickest way to fulfil her sister's dying wish, Eun Jin gets hitched, which is when the fun really begins, as she tries to play housewife to the clueless Su Il while continuing to run her gangland operations. Unfortunately, matters are complicated as the leader of a rival gang tries to muscle in on Eun Jin's territory. And if that wasn't enough, the dying sister makes one more request: for Eun Jin to become a mother.

This movie was mine first Korean movie that I acknowledged that it's indeed Korean and not just "Asian movie". Maybe this review will be a little to much sentimental, forgive me ^^ I just have so good memories watching this!

Story for me is outstanding, truly! I never watched story about gang master which decides to become wife, to fulfill last wish of her dying sister. And then all sort of hilarious stuff begin! Seriously I thought I will never stop laughing.

Every character has unique background story, which will make you laugh, cry and excited. I never liked "flying/fighting/scenes" that's way I avoided Asian action movies. There is some flying around in this one, but it did not damaged this movie to me.

Music is nice fit with the story. Sister love is so moving and chemistry between husband and wife OMG! Even a thought of that makes me smile.

Overall it's just great actions comedy which I encouraged you guys to see for yourselves ^^ Have fun.

From start to finish, not a bad movie! Shin Eun Gyeong did a fantastic job as the bad ass gangster,Cha Eun Jin! She was intense! Park Sang Myeon as Kang Su Il, her husband was fun to watch as he slowly learned about his wife. The scenes of the wedding and her attempts to get pregnant were memorable, you will not forget them! Loved this, and I know you will too.
