Synopsis: Cheol-jung (Kyung-gu Sol) is a corrupt police detective who uses his privileged position to dabble in the drug trade, wrangle bribes, and rub shoulders with local gangsters. While working on a stakeout, the dissolute cop has a menacing encounter with a raincoated stranger that leads him to discover the grisly double homicide of an elderly couple. As clues begin to point to a wealthy and respectable businessman named Gyu-hwan (Sung-jae Lee), Cheol-jung is forced to take matters into his own hands when his skeptical colleagues refuse to believe that such a fine upstanding citizen could, in fact, be a psychotic serial killer. Chilling and atmospheric, PUBLIC ENEMY brings a thoroughly fresh approach to the standard policier formula with its sly social commentary and a perfect balance of action and black comedy Kyung-gu Sol – Cheol-jung, Kang Sung-jae Lee – Kyu-hwan, Jo Shin-il Kang – Chief Investigator Eom Jeong-hak Kim – Detective Kim Yong-gu Do – Detective Nam
