His coworkers are happy for him, but his ex-wife is mad and dances on a street sign pole to show it.

Investigation Into a Murder and Face Blindness
At a mortuary, a doctor and a detective look at the burned body of a woman named Thoung, but her face and hands are not clear. The victim’s sister says that the body is that of Thoung, but based on the tattoo, she can’t be sure. Lee Jong Kloo’s husband says that he and his wife fought over money and that after the fight, the woman went to stay with her friend Hoai.
Dr. Shin, who has trouble seeing people’s faces, confirms that the victim is the right person and is asked to help with the investigation. The victim’s best friend, Hoai, is an illegal immigrant. When her boyfriend finds the body in a closet, Hoai is a suspect. With the help of Dr. Shin, Detective Geum (Cha Tae-Hyun) tries to talk to Hoai’s boyfriend, but Vietnamese workers beat him up for being rude.
