After the untimely death of Korea’s biggest crime syndicate Goldmoon’s chairman, power struggle between top lieutenants begins – mob’s rank no.2 Jung Chung and no.3 Lee Joong-gu are the potential heirs to the throne. In order to control and observe this transition, the police begin a new operation called ‘New World’. Sitting at the pivot of this operation is none other than Jung’s right hand man, Ja-sung, who has been working undercover for eight years. Police chief Kang has been his handler since the beginning, and he knows how fragile Ja-sung is at this moment. With a baby on the way, Ja-sung has been wanting to leave the job for some time, before he’s exposed as a mole and traitor by the mob. He’s torn between his duty and honor as a cop, and members of his gang, whom he knows will follow him to hell and back. “NEW WORLD is both less bloody and more thoughtful than most of its genre, the shifting-alliances plot becoming more engrossing as it progresses.” (Jeannette Catsoulis)
