ⓘ All She Was Worth

Helpless is a 2012 South Korean film adaptation starring Kim Min-hee as Seon-yeong/Gyeong-seon Shoko/Kyoko, Lee Sun-kyun as her jilted fiance Mun-ho Jun, Jo Sung-ha as Mun-hos cousin Kim Jong-geun Honma, and Cha Soo-yeon as the real Seon-yeong Shoko. Unlike in the original Japanese book, where Jun walks out on Honma and refuses to believe he has been tricked thereby not playing a role in most of the story, Mun-ho helps out Jong-geun in the investigation, despite their differences. Additionally, whereas Honma was just taking leave from his police job and his wife Chizuko was deceased, Kim has resigned from his job in the police department and his wife, Mi-yeon, is still alive.

The original Korean title is Hwacha the cognate of kasha and written with the same hanja, however, the term in Korean usually refers to arrow cannons, the kind used to resist the Japanese invasions by Toyotomi Hideyoshis naval forces in the 16th century.
