Based on the 2004 Chinese-Korean gangster mop-up operation in Seouls Garibong neighbourhood, during which 32 gang members were arrested, Kang Yun-sungs work of fiction sees Don Lee using his fists like he did in the gargantuan box office hit Train to Busan. This time, the star is not up against zombies but ruthless Chinese-Korean gangsters, when new thug on the block Jang Chen and his two sadistic sidekicks try to seize control of the local area. A hard-boiled cop Ma Suk-do is determined, together with his team, to bring peace to the area, which means hunting down Jang and his gang. Full of humour, this crime action-thriller is certainly violent but it never takes itself too seriously.
