A vicious murder that shook Korea to the core remains unsolved and ace detective Han-su takes over the case with his partner Jong-chan to find and arrest the killer at any cost. Drug dealer and Han-su’s informant Choon-bae provides him with a crucial tip for covering up a murder, and Han-su’s rival detective Min-tae begins to clue in on Han-su’s shady dealings. He becomes more desperate as his involvement in the crime is about to be revealed by Min-tae. 

"Thriller is a genre that can veer into human nature. Pay special attention to how these two characters’ emotions change. I needed to approach it as a purely genre film, and the lights, production design, photography and everything behind the scenes worked to support that idea. I wanted to keep the sentiment of the original but focused on creating a new story." [Lee Jeong-ho]

Director Lee Jeong-ho made his directorial debut with 2010’s Bestseller and received a lot of critical acclaim. He went onto adapt Japanese author Keigo Higashino’s novel Broken into a feature film in 2014, which depicted a character’s complicated psyche and societal problems in a stylish manner with traits that highlight thriller genre. He’s back after 5 long years, remaking a seminal French thriller 36 Quai des Orfèvres (2004) about a detective who must hide a murder and his rival detective who is on the verge of uncovering his colleague’s dark truth.
