In the year 2001, a South Korean action-comedy film titled My Wife Is a Gangster was released. Directed by Jo Jin-kyu, the movie stars Eun-Kyung Shin, Jae-mo Ahn, and Kim In-kwon in lead roles. The movie revolves around Eun-Jin (played by Eun-Kyung Shin) who is the leader of a gang in Chinatown. She is known for her tough and ruthless nature, and how she manages the gang with an iron fist. However, Eun-Jin's life takes a turn when her sister gets pregnant and she decides to visit her family.

Eun-Jin's family is not aware of her 'profession' and thinks she is a successful businesswoman. Eun-Jin falls in love with a man named Soo-il (played by Jae-mo Ahn) during her trip and the two get married in a rush. However, Soo-il soon learns about Eun-Jin's true identity and he struggles to come to terms with it.

Eun-Jin, too, faces challenges as she tries to balance her life as a gang leader and a married woman. Her gang members start to resent her for being away from them and question her authority. At the same time, Eun-Jin's rival gang causes trouble, and she must stand her ground to protect her territory.

The movie is a perfect blend of action, comedy, and romance. Eun-Kyung Shin shines in her role as Eun-Jin and brings to life the character's tough exterior and vulnerability. Jae-mo Ahn's portrayal of Soo-il, who is torn between his love for Eun-Jin and his disapproval of her profession, is also commendable.

The chemistry between the two leads is evident in their romantic scenes, while the action sequences are visually stunning and entertaining. The movie also features a great supporting cast, including Kim In-kwon, who plays Eun-Jin's right-hand man, and Choi Eun-ju, who plays Soo-il's sister.

One of the highlights of the movie is the portrayal of a strong and independent female lead, breaking the stereotype of women being portrayed as weak and helpless in most Korean movies. Eun-Jin is a character that commands respect and awe, and Eun-Kyung Shin's performance does justice to her layered personality.

Overall, My Wife Is a Gangster is a must-watch for fans of Korean cinema. It has all the elements of a great movie - action, comedy, romance, and drama - and leaves the audience entertained and satisfied. The movie also has a sequel and a trilogy, further cementing its popularity among viewers.
