Watching this movie I got the impression that the cameramen were sick and their hands were trembling. Why in Korean Action Movie the camera has to tremble so much???? And why do they zoom in sooooooo much on the actor’s face? I kins what to see what is going on in the movie, not to see the actor’s eyes…….
After receiving his paycheck, Dong Chul leaves Chairman Park’s house. In front of the house, he realizes that something isn’t right and returns. He enters Chairman Park’s room and finds a man trying to kill Chairman Park. Dong Chul fight with the killer, but it was too late for Chairman Park. Before dying Chairman Park gave Dong Chul a pair of glasses.
Later the South Korean intelligence service agents came to Chairman Park’s house. Dong Chul was there, holding the glasses. One officer saw that Dong Chul was holding to something. When the officer asked Dong Chul to give him the glasses, Dong Chul, again realized that something is wrong and ran away.
The next morning Dong Chul called Chairman Park’s assistant to tell him about the glasses. But the agents were there .
Looking from his window, Dong Chul sees some men looking for him. He manages to get away from those men. He gets into a car and leaves his house. That car was Choi Kyung Hee’s car.

Colonel Min Se Hoon met Ji Dong Chul on Dong Chul’s last mission. In that mission Dong Chul was abandoned by his people.

He called the sniper and put his phone on the table. Dong Chul didn’t see that and got close to Gwnag Jo. He asked Gwang Jo what where his wife’s last words.
Gwang Jo: “She begged for her life.”
While Dong Chul was getting close to Gwang Jo, he realized that there is a sniper on the building in front of Gwang Jo’s window. Gwang Jo managed to run away during the gun shot. Dong Chul took Gwang Jo’s phone and followed Gwang Jo.

Also Gwang Jo wasn’t the one that killed Dong Chul’s wife, the killer was the other North Korean spy that was with Gwang Jo and Gwang Jo shot that man.
Colonel Min arrived at the scene late. He knows that Kim Seok Ho is chairman Park’s killer and that Kim Seok Ho framed Dong Chul. Min Se Hoon leaves, but he takes Kyung Hee with him. Even if the formula is in Kim Seok Ho’s hands, the formula was filmed. Se Hoon and Kyung Hee took the formula to a laboratory and found that even if the formula is similar to anthrax formula, that formula was for buckwheat seed. That formula was a present to North Korea to solve their famine problem. That was why Chairman Park told Dong Chul to “burry” the glasses
