THE CHRONICLES OF EVIL

President's Award

for Exemplary Officers

The award must be

a big deal.

Your photo's already online.

I'm back.

If your stars line up,

you'll be at HQ in no time.

- Thank you.

- Bullshit.

Sly fox, you made me

lobby for you.

All right.

You deserve it

after 15 years in homicide.

Evaluation's this month.

Until that's over,

don't get caught up in anything,

and lay low.

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY BAEK

Vl/OON-HAK Yes, I understand.

Here comes the chief!

Congratulations!

Choi Chang-sik!

Choi Chang-sik!

Choi Chang-sin!

Congratulations!

It's a good day,

but there's work, sir.

Mr. Kim of Jangan-dong

has to be processed now.

Yeah?

As we discussed,

I left out the assault charge.

Good work.

He helped out

Det. Park last year,

3 quid pro quo.

Right.

- Proceed.

- At once.

A light sentence

will do him good.

- Sure.

- Hey.

What's this?

From our generous patron,

share them with the boys.

There're so many

gift certificates here.

It's your gift,

you should use them.

It was your case.

I'll take care of the brass,

so don't worry.

All right,

we'll put to good use.

Chief Choi Chang-silt

Send Dong-jae in.

Did you ask for me?

I got your case file,

you worked it yourself?

Yes, Det. Park said

it was a simple case.

But what a pity,

you flunked it.

It feels like you're

siding with the suspect.

The thing is...

the victim's

time of death is weird.

And no motive too.

It's not enough

for a first degree.

What's this case's keyword?

Well... it's...

'Incidental instinct'.

He was robbing

a corner store,

but got caught

and killed a part-timer.

Humans resort to instincts

in an extreme situation.

The place where we witness

the degree of our evil

pending circumstances

is right here.

If you get emotionally invested,

you can't survive here.

Remove your emotions,

and only consider the facts,

okay?

Yes, sir.

And why does my family

like you more than me?

I was supposed to

bike with Myung-ho...

Please tell him

we'll go for sure next week.

I got it.

Come have your birthday meal

this Saturday.

Isn't it your b-day?

I know you don't have time

to visit your folks.

Back to work.

Yes, sir.

Thank you, sir.

The hottest police chief

in the country!

- To our chief!

- To our chief!

- Congratulations!

- All the way!

Congrats!

There's a rumor that

you're heading for the HQ,

so you'll be

suiting up everyday.

We put our heads together

and decided on this small gift.

Put it on for him.

How is it?

Am I the sh*t?

- Major sh*t!

- The best!

Across the Pacific,

across the Atlantic,

even across the Indian Ocean

I will run to see you

I'll come no matter what

Boss!

You're the man today.

The best!

You little cutie!

Chief, don't love him so much.

We're getting jealous!

Slap my ass too.

- Good night!

- Night, sir!

- Take care, boss!

- Salute!

Mok-dong district 7.

Hey, son.

It's dad.

Of course,

I'm the best cop in Korea.

Okay.

Put mom on.

It just ended.

I'm doing this

to make you the queen.

A man must have

unquenchable ambition.

Okay, okay.

I'll see you soon.

Where are we?

I said Mok-dong.

Mister, go to Mok-dong 7.

Stop the car,

I'm a cop!

Stop the car!

What a pain in the ass

for a damn po-po.

Stop the car!

I said I'm a cop!

Be cooland drop the knife.

Drop it!

Who are you?

What's going on?

So damn yaPPV-

Should I tell you

why you must die?

You arrested Mr. Kim

in China.

You took bribes

and set him free.

Want another?

Yujin Construction's Park,

Jo Nam-oh,

bar owner Lee Myung-chun...

You kept Lee's money

all by yourself.

You're a scumbag.

Did Lee send you?

To threaten me?

I don't care how much money

or from whom you accepted.

But why dig up old cases

and cause headaches?

You have to die

for me to live.

You deserve everything,

a**hole!

Die!

You f***ing cockroach!

Hey, get UP-

Wake up!

Wake up!

Superintendent Ju

Yes, sir.

Yo, Chang-sink!

Do you know who I'm with?

Remember Deputy Comm. Park?

Head of HR.

Yes, I do.

I'm lobbying him

to push your promotion.

Happy?

Yes.

I gave him a good push,

so stay out of trouble.

The world will change

so much for you.

Different work,

and different people too.

A whole new playing field.

Then we'll go all the way.

Okay?

Yes, sir.

Look!

What is it?

- What is that?

- Oh my god!

Gangnam Police

If it's Dong-jae,

let me talk to him, mom.

You're not like yourself today.

Bed-ridden all of sudden.

It's Dong-jae,

he sounded urgent.

Yeah, Dong-jae.

Some sick f***

hung a body on the crane.

It was in the open,

so we couldn't stop them.

- The body?

- This way.

- What's with the neck?

- It's a scratch.

Something wrong?

Someone you know?

Anything odd at the scene?

The case is already odd,

so everything's going to sh*t.

What a nutjob.

We need his fingerprints.

Sure, please hurry.

- All right, thank you.

- Thank you.

Hey. Dong-'gae!

Right away!

A cab at a construction site?

Check every inch,

and pop the trunk.

Sure.

A body that was found hanging

at a construction site,

the case and the hunt

for the killer have captured

our nation's full attention.
