A manga artist teams up with adult columnist to produce steamy, action filled comic.

An adult cartoon contest is announced offering a $100,000 prize. Talented cartoonist Jung-bae (Lee Sun-Kyun) is constantly turned down by publishing companies because of his poor story lines. To raise his chances of winning, he hires a sex advice columnist, Da-rim (Choi Kang-hee), a self-claimed expert on relationship and love-making with a big imagination and zero experience.

Da-rim comes up with the idea of a female assassin who keeps her male victims captive for erotic kicks. But with fictional passions running high, will the sizzling hot action remain on the page?

Live action interspersed with spicy action manga scenes.
