    Tae-il is a low-level thug who goes around the streets of his neighborhood, harassing shop owners for the protection money owed to the small gang he works for. He does well at his job and doesn’t seem to harbor many scruples about it, but after meeting Ho-jung, the daughter of one of his shakedown victims, his conscience begins to get the better of him. An unlikely romance blossoms between the two following his prolonged courtship but when he tries to leave the gang life behind him, the break isn’t clean. Unfortunately he is soon diagnosed with cancer and his relationship with Ho-jung is suddenly thrown into jeopardy.
    The Lunar New Year release Man In Love is the debut of HAN Dong-wook, previously the assistant director of RYOO Seung-wan’s The Unjust (2010). The film stars HWANG Jung-min, who is no stranger to both gangster (New World [2013]) and romantic (You Are My Sunshine [2005]) roles. Co-starring alongside him is 26 Years (2012) star HAN Hye-jin.
