The Age of Shadows

Synopsis: Set in the late 1920s, The Age of Shadows follows the cat-and-mouse game that unfolds between a group of resistance fighters trying to bring in explosives from Shanghai to destroy key Japanese facilities in Seoul, and Japanese agents trying to stop them. A talented Korean-born Japanese police officer, who was previously in the independence movement himself, is thrown into a dilemma between the demands of his reality and the instinct to support a greater cause.

What are you doubting, sir?

Didn't you agree to this deal?

In this current Joseon, any person can

claim the independence movement badge,

claiming to save the country and its

people, creating false lies everywhere.

How can I believe in you all,

providing you with military funding?

Please don't associate

us with those bastards.

Not only can you gain what you want,

you can also contribute your power

to the independence of our motherland.

This is a counterfeit.

How dare you try to fool me?

Sir...

Old man, are you blind?!

We've already agreed to this

earlier, why are you dragging time?

Then why didn't you

follow the agreed time?

Kim Jan-ok, you listen to me!

You are surrounded, you can't run!

Put your weapons down

immediately and surrender!

What's the situation?

Very stubborn, still biting the bullet.

That's normal.

After all, he is a core

member of Heroic Corps.

I'll try to persuade him again.

Give me.

Kim Jan-ok,

can you hear me?

I am Lee Jung-chool.

Hold your fire!

Hold your fire!

I'll go look around.

Do not act rashly.

Are you commanding me?

Why do you think this is my command?

Capturing Kim Jan-ok alive is

Minister Higashi's instructions.

Go arrest them.

Follow me.

Here!

Cease your fire!

I said, cease your fire!

He's there!

Back off!

Everybody back off!

Back off!

Back off!

Lee Jung-chool.

Jan-ok?

I am Lee Jung-chool.

Let's talk.

I'm opening the door, don't shoot.

The higher-ups betrays our

country, and you betray our people.

Can you sleep well at night?

A bunch of dirty traitors.

Do you really think this

country can be independent?

After all, the boat is sinking.

Yes, of course.

Sinking ship, the

first to run is the rat.

Please go out.

Go out so you can live.

You need to stay alive, at least.

I will not work with rats.

Put your gun down now!

Long live the Korean Independence.

Jan-ok.

The Age of Shadows

Joseon Governor's Office

Please sit.

This is genuine.

Looks like they're in need of funding.

We should have capture him alive.

This operation was wasted.

Were you friends?

No.

Of course...

In troubled times,

friends are hard to find.

Only those who first extend

their hand are considered friends.

The governor is putting

high hopes in you.

This statue will lead

you to the Heroic Corps.

We're counting on you.

Let him go.

Where is Joo Dong-sung?

They killed Jan-ok, but

captured Joo Dong-sung.

The fella, Lee Jung-chool,

released Dong-sung after a day.

Lee Jung-chool?

A new police captain. He is Joseon.

He was active in Shanghai

for a short while.

Sold off intelligence

to Japanese police,

and he climbed up the police

position through those intel.

A greedy hog.

He was a translator,

with a wide network,

but he's using it to

betray the government.

This means Lee Jung-chool

released Joo Dong-sung as bait.

Hold on, could this place be exposed?

No, we circled around

before bringing him here.

No one was following.

How shall we handle Joo Dong-sung?

He wouldn't say anything no matter how

hard we hit him. We have no more options.

Make him leave the group,

to avoid future troubles.

How about this...

You came out of jail with no injuries.

I really don't know what's going on.

He let me go, so I left.

Didn't Lee Jung-chool ask

his people to release you?

No, dear brothers.

Jan-ok's whereabouts were

also leaked from our end.

Not by me, brothers!

It's not me, really!

A fella like you, who sucks

the bones of our comrades.

Why, why are you suspecting me?

I don't even know
