A SPECIAL LADY
Hyun-jung began her life in the underworld as a prostitute and now she’s as high as it gets in a criminal organization. Her big secret is that, while she was in jail, she gave birth to a son. When he finally comes to light, the boy will wind up in the crosshairs of Hyun-jung’s enemies, and she’ll have to protect her child tooth and nail (and bullets).
