My Wife Is A Gangster 1 & 2 English Hard-Subbed
My Wife Is A Gangster
How much do you really know about your spouse? That’s the provocative question explored to much comic effect in My Wife Is A Gangster, the box office smash of 2001! Shin Eun Kyung (from Wedding Campaign and Diary Of June) stars as Cha Eun Jin, an orphan who’s worked her way up the criminal ladder to become the leader of her own gang. Nicknamed “Mantis,” she utilizes a nasty pair of scissors whenever she feels like doling out a little punishment on her enemies. Her criminal life gets turned upside down, however, when she’s forced to honor her sister’s dying wish – to get married and start a family! With no experience in these matters, she rounds up her lieutenants (Shim Won Chul and An Jae Mo) to find her a suitable mate. Out of this frantic search comes Soo Il (Park Sang Myun, from She’s On Duty and Hi, Dharma), a well-mannered, somewhat naive civil servant – in other words, the perfect groom.
Although the wedding itself wasn’t exactly a walk in the park, Soo Il is in store for even more surprises once the “honeymoon” begins! His eagerness for romance quickly diminishes as his new bride snubs his overtures for sex, offends his colleagues, and overall makes his life a living hell! As the unhappy couple starts to come apart at the seams, a rival gang catches wind of Eun Jin’s current marital situation, a discovery that results in the death of one of her men and – after a brutal gangfight – her own hospitalization! But what happens when Soo Il learns of his wife’s true profession? Will he turn tail and run? Or will he find the courage to avenge his wife? Full of madcap situations and sharply choreographed wire-fu, My Wife Is A Gangster is one action comedy sure to entertain!

My Wife is a Gangster 2 – The Legend Returns
Director Jeong Heung Soon takes up the directorial reins for My Wife Is A Gangster 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2001 box office hit! During a bloody rooftop gang brawl, crime boss Cha Eun Jin (Shin Eun Kyung reprising her role from the original) gets knocked for a loop and ends up losing her memory in the process. Eventually, she stumbles into a job as a delivery person for a Chinese restaurant owned by Yoon Jae Choi (Park Joon Gyu). Several months later, Eun Jin has successfully adapted to her new life at the Chinese restaurant and forged new friendships, completely oblivious to her prior history. Although Eun Jin initially annoys Jae Choi’s troubled teenage daughter and starts getting harassed by an obnoxious neighbor, she also goes on to become the object of much attention, particularly from the men in the community.
Even so, the women have nothing but respect for Eun Jin whose martial arts skills and tough-as-nails persona prove helpful when taking down overgrown bullies, whether they be bank robbers, local gang members, or even sexist pigs! But once Eun Jin’s old gang finally puts two and two together and seeks her out, it’s a forgone conclusion that Eun Jin will recover her memory, retake her leadership position, and defend her community – but will she succeed? Ultimately, My Wife Is A Gangster 2 is the rare sequel that matches the fun of the original while adding a new dimension all its own. And be sure not to miss the Zhang Ziyi cameo!
