SYNOPSIS

Sunwoo is no ordinary hotel manager. Decisive and efficient, he's also the right hand man of underworld boss Kang. But tough guy Kang has a weakness: his young girlfriend Heesoo. Suspecting she's unfaithful, Kang orders Sunwoo to take care of the problem. When Sunwoo discovers Heesoo with another man, he is unable to kill them without knowing why. Kang is furious. His gang members are soon after Sunwoo, plunging him into a living hell. With nerves of steel, Sunwoo battles the gang alone. With each kill, he takes one step closer to Kang... From the director of A TALE OF TWO SISTERS.
