Can’t Live Without Robbery
도둑맞곤 못살아
aka Steal It If You Can (2002)
MBC Drama Special – 1 Episode
Comedy, Grade: A for the Laughter

Absolutely hilarious show! I assumed I knew every So Jisub drama known to man, but I had never even HEARD of this one, which I found accidentally online by perusing listings of short K-dramas (I prefer to watch short ones while expecting new episodes of ongoing longer series I’m watching … helps pass the time).

If you are a die-hard So Jisub fan like I’m (he was the one who turned me on to K-dramas within the first place ten years ago once I watched I’m Sorry, I like You for the primary time) you will not want to miss this treat. I loved seeing Jisub So young here in 2002, and after all, like in most of his dramas, we get to determine his lovely swimmer’s body another time. 😉 Swimming was his past love, even before modeling and acting. I really like his sense of humor during this offbeat drama, the most effective I’ve ever seen from him.

What a fabulous breaststroke! Or, should I say what a fabulous breast! 😉

The Wacky Story of “Can’t Live Without Robbery”

So Ji-sub plays an unusual guy in his twenties named Kang Jo Choi who has become wealthy by designing popular video games. In his spare time, he breaks in and enters rich people’s mansions while they’re away or while they’re at sleep in the dark, and he canvasses the places, every time removing different items that he’s inquisitive about. What he learns from his “hobby” of breaking houses are techniques and skills he showcases in his video games yet.

One night Kang Jo enters the oddball modern mansion of a fashionable family who sleep in the center of nowhere because after they built their mansion the environmental protection people claimed some valuable fossils were found within the area, that the remainder of the land couldn’t be used for assets development. a straightforward target for theft because there’ll be no police checking informed a house that’s miles off from civilization.

Kang Jo doesn’t just break in once at this house, but several times; it is the challenge he loves even over the things taken. However, the middle-aged husband and father of two named Kang Sang Tae, who lives within the house, gets angrier and angrier at the burglar and eventually becomes dead set capturing him. He tries martial arts, buying a dog, boarding up his house, but nothing works! Kang Jo the Burglar gets around everything Kang Sang Tae tries until there’s an all-out battle between the 2 Kangs. The more this drama progressed the more I felt I used to be watching Home Alone For Middle Aged Men, especially when the owner sends his family out of the house on an excuse, so he can attempt to capture the burglar alone. Macaulay Culkin, eat your heart out!

At one point Kang Burglar opens the Kang family’s refrigerator door and JUMPS in fear when he sees a pig’s head gazing at him. He then sees a plate of pig ear sushi under the pig’s head that the wife Mari (Song Seon Mi) had made, and he goes to eat one, not knowing the wife of the family can’t cook well because she was born without functioning taste buds! He gags at the terrible sushi, and in revenge, more as a joke, he turns the pig’s head around sideways. the subsequent morning when the wife opens the refrigerator door she JUMPS because that’s not how she had left the pig’s head within the refrigerator the night before!


This wife is so weird! She blames her husband for stealing the remote for the TV (when it absolutely was the Burglar) and he or she calls the cops on hubby! The wife answers the door in a very slip and also the cop looks her up and down with interest. Her young son runs ahead of her that the cop can’t see her sexy figure. “CAN I TOUCH YOUR BAZOOKA?” he asks the cop. I just rolled with laughter!

The husband buys a giant dog and calls her Nessie, after the Loch Ness Monster. The dog is pretty dumb and their husband even should teach her the way to bite a bone! However, once he knows there is a dog within the house the Burglar buys a steak, injects tranquilizers into it, throws it through the window to the dog who quickly eats it and falls asleep! Burglar enters the house and steals the husband’s private diary and a bottle of pricy liquor. When he reads the diary later he learns it is the husband’s 39th birthday developing so he sends the husband a box of neckties as a present! Inside the box could be a note: “In seven days I’ll return to require your television set”. Kang’s Husband is decided to urge Kang Burglar this time! That goggle box may be a huge, expensive one hanging on the wall. it is a set he values because he gets to spend time together with his family watching old classic movies on that.

That fateful night Dad and burglar fight and fight using every kind of tricks and gadgets and weapons. Meanwhile, the family doesn’t feel right about leaving Dad home alone, and that they spin and return. They enter the house, the son eliminates his slingshot a la David and Goliath and knocks So Jisub the Kang Burglar out cold. Dad wins! In true Kevin style, he raises his fist: “YESSSSSS!”

Cut to a year later and Kang Dad and Kang Burglar have opened a replacement company together on Home Security. Too funny for words. and also the Burglar has incorporated everything he has learned about breaking into his latest game which could be a huge hit. Happiness and Money abound for both the Burglar and his new adopted family! Who says crime doesn’t pay???

At first, this drama special was so bizarre I swore that somebody on LSD must have written it while tripping the sunshine fantastic, but it quickly grew on me anyway, the more I laughed with each scene. If you really need to laugh check this drama special out. Have fun! The kids might like this one, too.
