The Girl on a Bulldozer

Nominees and Awards


Don’t you dare mess with me!

Hye-yeong turns 20 soon. She may seem delicate and pretty, but the dragon tattoo on her arm can sure scare people off. Her only problem is her father, Bon-jin, a gambling addict who once lost all their money and even deserted the family. He later opened a Chinese restaurant on the outskirts of Seoul, and it’s now regularly packed with diners. Hye-yeong still can’t forgive him, but the only reason she stays with her family is her little brother, Hye-jeok. He reminds her of her childhood and he’s considerate like their late mother.

One day, Bon-jin is found unconscious in hospital, having allegedly assaulted someone, stolen a car, and hit two innocent people. Hye-yeong doesn’t even feel sorry for him, but strangely, she receives several anonymous calls from people who want to talk to her father. And a couple suddenly shows up at the father’s restaurant, saying they will take it over from Bon-jin in two weeks. On top of that, Bon-jin’s condition rapidly worsens and now is brain dead. What happened to him?
