Rules of the Time

Hold still.

I'm getting wet.

1 week ago, Busan Dongbang Hotel

welcome, boss.

Please, don't kill me.

Afternoon, boss.

Enough, bring him out.

Mr. Kim!

Son of a b*tch

Please, let me go!

Don't kill me!

Go get that f***er!

F***ing a**hole!

Stop right there! You f***!

Was the hotel built for a good night sleep?

It's for the casino, ain't it?

If they take half,

what am I left with?

Forget it.

I'm gonna go to the police.

Mr. Hur, that won't solve anything.

You'll still need the muscle

if you're gonna maintain the casino.

Don't I know that?

But how could they mess up

their partner like this?

Look at this!

Just look at this bruise!

He's not the only gangster in town,

and I'm to blame for

getting in bed with you.

Sh*t, putting me

in an awkward position

why did he do it?

I was damn sure right then.

We've known each other

for a long time,

so I didn't think much of it,

but I didn't realize how big

a criminal he was.

Say hello.

This is prosecutor Jo.

- Mr. Prosecutor.

- Petty gangster.

Answer me with yes or no

to my questions. Got that?


- Can you write?

- Yes.

Write down

your involvement

in kidnapping, and assaulting

of Hur Sam-sik,

and every crime

you committed in your life,

in clean, legible letters.

When and why you became a gangster

and how you became the boss

Mr. Prosecutor,

I, I think

there's a misunderstanding,

but I'm not a gangster,

you hear?

Do I look like

a violent gangster?

I was a civil servant,

a respectable one at that.

- Open it.

- Yes, sir.

Huh? For what?

What are you doing?

F***ing sh*t!

Civil servant?


If you forget something

I know about,

or lie in your confession

even in the slightest,

I'll leave the rest

to your imagination.


March 1982, Busan Customs Office

There's really nothing inside.

Ah, here he is.

Thanks for coming.

What is all this?

This is fish food?

I know the world is a better place,

but fish eats ginseng now?

And wear gold watches apparently.

Let's go inside.

Please, wait a moment.

Actually, supervisor Park

in management is my family.

I'll look the other way

since you're family with Park,

but make sure

this doesn't happen again.

Of course, I'm sorry.

This is the entire Inspection team.

The four of us must inspect

the entire Busan Harbor.
