New World. Trust No One.
The theme of black or white is not clearly classified and the film illustrates twisted roles of the characters which the mob features toward more optimistic and the police presents darkness. There’s no good guy or bad guy exist here, it is solely these three attempting to achieve to their desired “New World”. This film is literally a Page Turner. (Starring: Lee Jung Jae 이정재, Choi Min Shik 최민식, and Hwang Jung Min 황정민)
Undercover police officer Ja Sung, infiltrates Goldmoon, the biggest crime syndicate in Korea, to investigate them under the command of his handler Chief Kang. After eight years, Ja Sung becomes the right-hand man to the ring’s second-in-command Jung Chung, who holds the real power. But when its leader is killed in a mysterious car accident, Goldmoon is thrown into a succession struggle that threatens to tear it apart. With a baby on the way, Ja Sung is desperate to retire; however, Kang keeps him on as rival factions quickly develop around two prospective leaders, the gang number two, Jung Chung and number 3, Lee Joong Gu. Top-level police officials initiate “Operation New World” to intervene in Goldmoon’s selection process for the next leader, and to use the leader’s death to their advantage in controlling the crime organization. Caught between Jung Chung who trusts him with his life, and Kang who thinks of him only as bait, Ja Sung is cornered by both bosses on opposite sides and must make a final decision that rests on loyalty and betrayal. -en.wikipedia.org
One of the great parts of this movie is that it does not contain solely about crime scenes and violent actions that makes the movie just typical and tedious. You can find small portion of humor that can give you short time of break to relax your body from encountering too much brutality and bloodshed. I consider this scene perfectly illustrates what I just described.
