2009: Lost Memories

Synopsis: There are breakpoints in the history, the result of a single event may change the whole course... In 1909, an assassination attempt of a Japanese governor fails - the assassin was shot by a soldier. Now, in 2009, Korea is just another state of the Japan Empire and Seoul has become a major city. A Korean resistance group called Hureisenjin is formed to fight for liberty and independence. Two cops, a Japanese and a Korean (who denies his heritage) are investigating the actions of this "terrorist" group. And their work lead them to an artifact of the ancient Korean religion of "Sun and Moon".

Toyotomi Hideyoshi, The Last

Exhibition of Inoue Artifacts

It's amazing

We don't have to

do the rounds, right?

There are bodyguards

all over the place...

Who is it?

I'm in


The terrorist group

that has taken Ito Hall

has been identified

as the "Hurei-Sen-Jin"

When their claims

of Chosun independence

failed to earn public support

even from Koreans

they turned to terrorism

Authorized Personnel ONLY

In the Hureisenjin attack on the

Japanese Cultural Center in 2007

The leaders of the team

were apprehended

and the team was believed

to have been destroyed

but another terrorist attack

was carried out today

The Hureisenjin have

apparently rebuilt their team

Eight SWAT teams

are standing by

- How many terrorists are there?

- We believe about 10

Their demands?

Nothing yet, sir!

Can we move

in right away?

I wouldn't do

anything hasty

Think of the

Cultural Center

Stalling will only result in greater damage

They've taken many hostages

No more negotiations with Hureisenjin!

Sakamoto! Sorry to

cut short your vacation

Tough luck!


How's the situation?

It's strangely quiet

They've taken control of

the Central Hall but

there's no movement

I have a bad

feeling about this

It reminds me of the nightmare

at the Japanese Cultural Center


Bring them to the east exit

We'll be standing by

Drop the gun!

Drop your gun

and surrender!

F*** you!

I didn't come

here to surrender

Any more

resistance is useless

Drop the gun!

Are you Korean?

Drop your gun!

I asked

if you were Korean!

How can

you shoot at us?

You're just criminals


How can a try to get

my country back be a crime?

I'm going to count to three

I am Captain Joon-Hwan Kim

of the Korean Independence Army


Tell them this message

- Two!

- Korea is an independent country!

Japan has committed a crime

by forcefully invading Korea



What did he say in Korean?

JBI Seoul Office

Judging from the break-in route

and the overall nature of the attack

We know it was

a well-trained team

Hureisenjin has rebuilt itself

This incident will

provide material clues

material clues

to the direction

the organization

plans to take


The current evidence isn't enough to

clearly identify their specific motives

Maybe they were after

the national treasures?

The Hureisenjin are not known

to commit simple robberies

That's right

Many were

damaged in the gunfire

But there is no evidence that

they tried to steal any of them

What are the

other possibilities?

The interesting thing is that

they locked up the hostages

Almost as if they

wanted to protect them

Then they must've

had another motive

They completed their task but the

police came sooner than they expected

This was confirmed by

statements from the hostages

There is another unusual detail

One terrorist tried to

slip out with the hostages

This man

This is just speculation

but we believe the gun fight

may possibly have been...

...a cover for something else

Ten men were sacrificed

to save one?!

Please leave this case
