A fish-out-of-water gangster comedy featuring two of Korea's hottest young stars, Gamunui Yeonggwang (aka Marrying the Mafia) weaves a humorous tale of chance meeting and bizarre circumstance. Waking up one morning next to the beautiful Jang Jin-kyeong (Kim Jeong-eun) without any recollection of how he got there, hotshot young lawyer Park Dae-seo (Jeong Jun-ho) learns to his horror that his newfound bedmate is the daughter of a notorious mob kingpin (Park Geun-hyeong). As her protective older brother In-tae (Yu Dong-geun) insists that Park marry Jang in order to maintain his honor, it's soon revealed that In-tae has schemed to improve his family name by forcing the up-and-coming lawyer to marry his sister. Though the new couple seems to get along regardless of their odd circumstances, their romance is quickly challenged by Park's longtime girlfriend, Yu-jin (Lee Seo-yeon), who has no intentions of letting her man go so easily.
