Hunt

Two rivals, a hidden truth.

After a high-ranking North Korean official requests asylum, KCIA Foreign Unit chief Park Pyong-ho (Lee Jung Jae) and Domestic Unit chief Kim Jung-do (Jung Woo Sung) are tasked with uncovering a North Korean spy, known as Donglim, who is deeply embedded within their agency. When the spy begins leaking top secret intel that could jeopardize national security, the two units are each assigned to investigate each other. In this tense situation where if they cannot find the mole, they may be accused themselves, Pyong-ho and Jung-do slowly start to uncover the truth. In the end, they must deal with an unthinkable plot to assassinate the South Korean president…

“The twists arrive thick and fast with Lee taking the odd narrative break for propulsive, percussive and bullet-sprayed action sequences. It’s quite the ride.” (Times UK)

“Lee pulls off a suspenseful puzzle in which shifting motives and dense plots keep the audience guessing.” (The Wrap)
