Fierce and feared Zeus gang boss Jang Dong-su (MA Dong-seok) gets involved in a fender bender on a rain night and gets attacked without warning, ending up with several severe wounds. After fighting back, he barely kept his life but his reputation as a gang boss is damaged beyond repair. His only way to somehow get his image on track is to find his attacker and exact revenge. He decides to team up with Det. Jung Tae-seok (KIM Moo-yul), who believes that Jang’s attacker is none other than a serial killer.
Despite what Det. Jung believes, his boss downplays his evidence because there aren’t any evidence to begin with, as the killer does not leave anything behind. Without another option, he’s forced to use Jang’s resources in order to track down the serial killer and go after what little pattern there is to find him. The two men pool their talents and resources at their fingertips to slowly find a serial killer simply known as “K”.
After years of developing projects into films, including working as producer, story developer, LEE Won-tae has a knack for finding the right story. He directed TV series such as MBC’s <Surprise> and <Beautiful Face>. He made his directorial debut with <Man of Will>, which depicted the story of independence fighter KIM Gu. With his sophomore film, he wanted 3 unlikely characters to come together to create tension. “When you juxtapose a bad guy with a bad guy, it’ll create a spine-chilling effect that surpasses good Vs. evil,” said director LEE. Renowned storyteller LEE Won-tae is promising to bring something new to this genre.
