Socially anxious hitman Melvin Smiley, an expert in his lucrative field, goes on a job and falls in love with his kidnapping victim, turning his world upside down.
Keiko was originally supposed to be a high school student, intentionally as an homage to Asian schoolgirls in animé cartoons. However, certain powers that be found it to be too risqué, and she is now a college student in the film.
Understand this, okay? I absolutely, positively cannot be the only person falling head over heels in love in this relationship. It's got to be mutual.
Keiko's hair clip disappears while she and Melvin are cooking, and reappears in the next scene.
