(April 22, 2013) – Director Park Hoon-Jeong’s (The Showdown) critically-acclaimed, international box office hit NEW WORLD debuts on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital May 21st from Well Go USA Entertainment. As Korea’s biggest crime organization “Goldmoon” expands its power, the Police Chief (Min-sik Choi) orders his undercover cop (Lee Jeong-jae) to participate in project “New World,” designed to bring down the notorious crime organization. The undercover cop faces a difficult decision: follow the Chief’s orders or maintain his loyalty to “Goldmoon.” Bonus materials include the behind-the-scenes featurette “The Making of New World” and a photo gallery. Synopsis: The head of the Goldmoon crime syndicate is dead, leaving his top two lieutenants. Seizing the opportunity, the police launch an operation called “New World.” The boss’ right hand man, Ja-sung (Lee Jung-jae), has been a deep-cover operative for 8 years, closely watched by Police Chief Kang (Choi Min-sik). With a baby on the way and living in mortal fear of being exposed as a mole, Ja-sung is torn between his duty and honor as a cop, and the fiercely loyal gang members who will follow him to hell and back. Using inside information from Ja-sung to damage the relationship between the two feuding contenders, suspicions grow that a traitor lives in their ranks. Ruthless Jung (Hwang Jun-min) escalates the game by hiring hackers to search the police database. As the stakes climb higher and a guaranteed gangland bloodbath among those that remain, Ja-sung makes a final, shocking decision no one could have predicted. NEW WORLD has a runtime of approximately 135 minutes and is not rated. For more information, please visit www.wellgousa.com.
