About This DVD

What would you do if someone knew one of your secrets and tried to exploit the situation for his own gain? That's the situation facing the lead character in The Customer Is Always Right, written and directed by Oh Ki Hyun. The film revolves around the life of a meek barber named Ahn Chang Jin (Seong Ji Roo, from Super Family), a self-educated professional who takes great pride in his job. To keep everything ship shape, he purchases the best equipment, cleans the shop regularly, and even plays classical music to enliven the spirits of his customers. In his personal life, he's got a beautiful wife named Jeon Yeon Ok (Seong Hyeon Ah, from The Intimate). Life seems good, at least, at first.

Things take a dramatic turn one day when the barber comes face-to-face with a scary-looking intimidator by the name of Kim Yang Gil (Myeong Kye Nam). It seems that Ahn hides a dark past, and the mysterious Mr. Kim has no problem blackmailing the barber through this shady little secret. On the first day, Ahn ends up paying Kim off with a small amount of cash, but each time the man returns, his demands for payment become progressively worse, as the "fee" doubles each time he visits. Desperate to maintain his reputation, he complies with the man's wishes, but eventually finds himself in fear of his next move. Eventually, Ahn hires a private investigator to look into the man's background and see if there are any skeletons in his closet. However, this investigation unearths something rather startling about the mystery blackmailer. Adapted from a short story by Japanese mystery writer Nishimura Kyotaro, The Customer Is Always Right proves that some secrets are better left buried in the past!
