Synopsis by Mark Deming
Jo Jin-gyu returns as director for the second sequel to his 2001 action-comedy hit Jopok Manura. Aryong (Shu Qi) is the daughter of Lim (Ti Lung), a high-ranking crime boss in the Hong Kong triads. A gang war has broken out, and Aryong's life is put in danger when she's framed for the murder of a rival triad chief, a crime she didn't commit. Worried about his daughter's safety, Lim sends Aryong off to South Korea, where Gi-cheol (Lee Beom-su), a local underworld figure affiliated with one of Lim's old friends, is to see to her safety. Aryong and Gi-cheol don't get along at all, despite the best efforts of translator Yon-hi (Hyeon Yeong) to buffer the insults they toss back and forth. However, in time they become close after Aryong and Gi-cheol are forced to do battle with gangsters sent to kill her, and Aryong tries to unravel the mystery of her long lost mother. Jopok Manura 3 (aka My Wife Is A Gangster 3) also stars Oh Ji-ho and Jo Heui-bong.
