He’s just a proxy driver. He gets in the client’s car and drives it to where they tell him to. That’s it. That’s what he’s being paid to do.
For 20,000 won, he is just going to get this drunk girl into her car, and drive her home. And since she won’t remember, he’s going to cop a bit of a feel too, and give himself a 10,000 won tip.
It’s not his problem that her address takes them to an abandoned construction site. It’s not his problem that she’s blackout drunk and utterly helpless.
It’s not his job to make sure she’s going to be okay. Sure, it’s basic human decency, but no one’s paying him for that. She won’t remember what he does to her anyway.
But someone else is watching them, and he remembers. This man doesn’t care much for basic human decency either, dangerously so. And thanks to a selfish proxy driver, he finally has the girl of his obsessions.
Now he needs someone to drive him out where the police can’t find him. A certain proxy driver would do just fine…
