Cert 18, 134mins, 2013

The second directorial feature from Park Hoon-jung, the screenwriter behind The Unjust and I Saw the Devil, New World is a noirish gangster epic in which undercover cops and shady policemen plot from the shadows to gain control of Korea’s biggest crime syndicate, Goldmoon, when its CEO is killed in a suspicious car accident. With a succession crisis mounting, police chief Kang (Choi Min-sik) launches “Operation New World” in which he hopes to manoeuvre his long-term undercover agent, Lee Ja-sung (Lee Jung-jae), into the top spot by taking out the two main factions led by flashy gangster Jung Chang (Hwang Jun-min) and the unscrupulous Lee Joong-gu (Park Sung-woong). In this world of habitual double crossing and confused identities, no one can be trusted and the only certainty is betrayal.
