Plot

Police Officer Ja-Sung (Lee Jung-Jae) is selected to work undercover for the National Police Agency. He joins the powerful crime organization "Goldmoon" and eventually becomes the right hand man of the #2 guy Jung Chung (Hwang Jung-Min) in the crime group.

Without warning, the #1 crime boss (Lee Kyoung-Young) for "Goldmoon" is suddenly killed. A power vacuum engulfs the Goldmoon group. Jung Chung and rival Lee Joong-Goo (Park Seong-Woong) both make plays to become the #1 crime boss for the Goldmoon group.

At this time, Kang Hyung-Chul (Choi Min-Sik) of the National Police Agency decides to enact operation "New World". Many years ago, Kang Hyung-Chul planted police officer Ja-Sung as a mole in the Goldmoon group. Operation "New World," is the National Police Agency's plan to intervene in the power succession of the Goldmoon group. When #2 guy Jung Chung is about to leave for China on business, Kang Hyung-Chul pulls Jung Chung aside. They talk in private. Jung Chung rebuffs his offer and orders his men to find out everything about Kang Hyung-Chul.

Meanwhile, police officer Ja-Sung wants Kang Hyung-Chul to keep his word that he can go back to the police force now that the Goldmoon group crime boss is dead, but Kang Hyung-Chul needs Ja-Sung for operation New World. Ja-Sung becomes more disillusioned with Kang Hyung-Chul's obsession with operation "New World" and torn over his loyalties to #2 crime boss Jung Chung.

ryozaki san A whole 'new era' and a whole new world!...the best Korean movie ever watched!!

souma what a movie, the best of 2013 (I have seen some, including the hyper-hipped berlin file) @L.W. Hyung-Chul said posing as gangster 10 years, and then he said 8 years, I think in the last he mean the infiltration

L.W. How long exactly jasung had been undercover before he get 'new world' mission?

L.W. @MMA, ma deong suk is one of people who having breakfast with lee joong goo just before joong goo get arrested

L.W. Nice ending, best gangster movie i have ever seen. I dont really like this kind of movie bcause the noise of gun and anything, but the cast's acting covered it up. Especially hwang jung min. I like both ahjussi, hwang jung min and lee jung jae :)

MMA i cant spot ma dong seok in this movie, where is he?

Jungle fish I can't differrentiate lee jung jae and park sung woong, I think they look similar to me...

Risu Anyone knows when the release date for the soundtrack?

SE I'm a professional screenwriter and producer. And I can honestly say, this movie was better than 99% of all American films this 2013 year. This film comes very very close to being as good as Tell No One, the French movie, with American writer, Harlen Coben. This is a must see movie for the fan of cop/mob dramas.

gray this is Hwang Jung Min's promising role,and a great movie indeed!

lurazop pity for song jin hyo fans, this is not her movie. just a minor role though... great movie!

Alias song ji hyo smallest role ever!!!!

jay My friend tell me its great movie, n I'm ready to watching this movie, because I love song ji hyo...

Yanbian Hooligan Let's get the ball rolling on a prequel!

ed Hwang looks very promising indeed. In the past he has reminded me of John Garfield - can't put a finger on it, but he truly does. This looks like his Force of Evil. Can't wait!

Ki Came away pretty impressed with "New World". Movie is definitely influenced by "Infernal Affairs," but not a remake. Actor Hwang Jung-Min really stood out for me in the film. I think it's his best performance in several years. The other two leading actors were both good as well. There's quite a bit of dialogue in the first half of the movie as everything is being laid out on the table so to speak and second half things go into overdrive. Will watch this one again whenever opportunity arises.

Mong Can't wait to see our lovely Actress song ji hyo! Fighting~~~

Mong JiHyo Fan Can't wait to see "CSI" Ji Hyo in action. Go! Fighting! Chun-Sung Im! lol

Ki @TOK - "New World" is the literal title of Korean title "Sinsegye". More than likely they will give an official English title sometime closer to movie release date.

TOK The Castings are Superb! but the title 'New World' is not really compelling. May be 'Under My World'? or 'the Ranking World Law'? at least something that we can able to remember the movie just by the name.
