Man, this one keeps getting better and better. I was pretty impressed with the teaser trailer for director Yoon Jong-bin’s “Nameless Gangster”, but the full trailer is blowing my tiny little mind. Granted, I can’t understand a word of it, but from a visual standpoint, the flick looks seriously intense. Then again, it’s early and I’m a little tired, so my excitement may lessen a little as the day wears on, though I honestly doubt it.
This synopsis may increase your own excitement exponentially:
Ik-hyeon is a corrupt customs officer who lives off bribes paid by the contraband smugglers. One day, after his financier rats him out, Ik-hyeon is visited by the inspector and faces losing his job. He runs into a group of armed criminals while on patrol and recovers a large lump of heroin. To sell off the drug, Ik-hyeon hooks up with Hyeong-bae who has connections with the Yakuza. He finds out that his liaison is related to him and quickly a partnership is formed; Hyeong-bae helps out Ik-hyeon set up a new business with the drug money, while Ik-hyeon lobbies for his partner through his family connection. However, the partnership turns sour over dealings with a rival organization. Soon after, the government declares war on crime and Ik-hyeon decides to take the opportunity to set up his partner and escape the tightening grip of the law enforcement.
“Nameless Gangster”, which stars Choi Min-sik, Ha Jeong-woo, Jo Jin-woong, Ma Dong-seok, Kim Yeong-seon, and Kim Hye-eun, among others, opens in South Korea on February 2nd, 2012.
