[HanCinema's Film Review] "The New World" 2013/09/28,
Ja-Seong (played by Lee Jeong-jae) has taken the notion of a deep-undercover police assignment to ridiculous lengths. He's been imbedded with a high-level criminal organization for so long that he's the trusted right-hand lieutenant of a man with a very serious claim to the overall leadership.
