An Chang-jin is a barber, a third-generation barber, in fact. He chats with customers, cuts their hair, shaves them. His everyday life is so ordinary and dull at the peaceful barbershop, except that his wife is young and beautiful. Then, one day a strange customer, Kim Yang-gil, visits the barbershop. He has “HATE” tattooed upon each finger joint. He gets a shave, a haircut and demands money three times a week. The intimidator takes double money each time he visits. The barber gradually is driven into a corner and he wants to escape from the bully but it is beyond his capacity because he is smart, minute, violent, mean and sly. Moreover, the intimidator casts an amorous glance at the barber’s wife and the barber, who can’t bear this anymore, hires a detective. The appearance of the detective seems to bring him peace but it’s just for a while. On the contrary, the curious detective watches for a chance to catch the barber unawares plus his riddling wife complicates this affair. The odd encounter with the barber, the stranger, the detective and the barber’s wife comes to an unexpected end.
