Shim Deok-su is a grumpy landlord of several working class flats who constantly harasses his tenants for rent. A Korean War refugee from the north, he possesses a Scrooge-like reputation and is widely despised about town. At the beginning of the movie we see him begin his day by dropping in on Mr Choi, a hard-up tenant who has been suffering from ailments that prevent him from working, to demand rent just as the latter is being visited by charity workers from a local church. Unmoved by the volunteer's pleas for empathy and unperturbed by their subsequent attempts to guilt-trip him, Deok-su leaves to go about his chores. As he goes about his routine he comes across two dead bodies as they are being cleared by police, one of a local drunk and the other a pensioner living alone.
In the evening Deok-su revisits Mr Choi, who has prepared an extravagant dinner in anticipation of a former colleague's visit. The two men eat, and during the ensuing conversation Mr Choi reveals himself to have been a former police detective and opines that the two deaths Deok-su had encountered earlier were murders committed by someone who was likely practising on the elderly prior to moving on to young women.
