Based on real events, this crime action film depicts a Seoul detective's attempts to keep peace while two Chinese-Korean gangs battle over turf in the neighborhood. Seung-hoon sedates his landlord before medical check-up, when the old man begins telling him a convincing murder confession.
Unlikely allies from different sides of the law must work together to achieve a common goal -- trapping the world's most legendary con man. Two friends who are students at Korean National Police University, find themselves in an endless race against time after they witness a kidnapping and decide to use their knowledge. A troubled ex-cop is imprisoned for a hit-and-run accident.
The Prison-to-College Pipeline
The ex police officer, Yu-gon Song, is incarcerated for a hit-and-run accident. He's now surrounded by convicts who rest assured don't like any police officers hanging out with them. Yu-gon Song soon finds out that everybody in the prison follows the order of the inmate Ik-Ho Jung, who runs the prison from the inside like a crime lord, who is respected even by the prison guards and the warden.
The movie takes its time to develop this relationship, with a relatively slow pace. The pay-off for the slow pace is great though, as you learn more about the rich and complex characters. Ik-Ho Jung in particular was deeply interesting to me, a crime lord who is both cruel and dignified, both meditative and power-hungry.
Most of the time he walks around the prison calmly with an emotionless face, but then at times his pent-up anger and viciousness breaks out in a truly visceral fashion. Everything is set in bleak color palettes, shades of grey and brown.

One feels cold and damp watching this movie. The atmosphere is super thick. And just about when I felt that the movie was going to bore me with its drabness, the plot went into a completely different direction from what I originally expected. A few twists towards the end build up towards a truly epic conclusion, one that asks deep questions about crime, loyalty and morality.

External Sites. User Reviews. User Ratings. External Reviews. Un-sentenced prisoners, or prisoners on remand awaiting trial, are generally housed in category B accommodation unless they have been provisionally classified as category A. High Supervision A prisoner for whom all activities and movements should be authorised, supervised and monitored by an officer. Medium Supervision A prisoner whom activities and movements are subject to limited supervision and restrictions. Low Supervision A prisoner for whom activities and movements are subject to minimum supervision and restrictions.
Prisoners in this category may be allowed to participate in activities in the community, which may be supervised or unsupervised.
On arrival in prison, each prisoner will initially be treated as high supervision. Unless they have been deemed category A then female prisoners and young prisoners are not categorised. They are only classified as suitable for open conditions or suitable for closed conditions. This depends on the length of sentence. In England and Wales, Category B and C prisoners who have a sentence of 12 months to 4 years should have their category reviewed at six monthly intervals. Anyone in the last 30 months of their sentence should also have their category reviewed at the same frequency.
Category B and C prisoners with sentences of 4 years or more will have their categorisation reviewed on an annual basis.
