With the help of a cartel gofer turned informant, narco-detective Won-ho goes after the legendary kingpin of Asia’s drug market known as Mr Lee, a man no one has ever seen. But Won-ho’s ruthless pursuit of him soon turns destructive, chalking up an alarming body count. Long after the leads have gone cold and he’s off the case, Won-ho remains obsessed by Lee’s capture.

Believer is a stylish, high-tension crime thriller, furiously driven by explosive action-sequences and vivid portrayals of its cops and criminals, a genre in which South Korea excels. With an abundance of high-colour characters of low survival rates, the standout performances of Cho Jin-woong and Ryu Jun-yeol add an emotion depth to this intense film.
