Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur

South Korean filmmaker Jo Jin-gyu directs the action blockbuster Jopok Manura (My Wife Is a Gangster), which earned nearly 30 million dollars at the box office by 2001. Shin Eun-gyeong stars as tough tomboy gang boss Cha Eun-jin. She agrees to settle down and get married in order to appease her dying sister. After some comical sensitivity training, she marries nerdy Kang Su-il (Park Sang-myeon) and gets busy making a baby. Meanwhile, she fights a rival gang with the assistance of her loyal deputy and team of thugs. My Wife Is a Gangster was shown at the Pusan Film Festival in 2001.
