User Reviews: A young man is drafted into South Korea’s army, where he is forced to suppress student demonstrations. A stint in the police has him beating confessions out of suspects. Upon leaving the cop job, this wrecked, embittered soul fails as a businessman and a husband.

All of this is contrasted with the hero as a young and naive man who will never imagine what he will be made to become by a brutal, corrupt "system".

A very solid 8/10.
