The Policeman's Lineage



Choi Min Jae (Choi Woo Shik) is a police detective – just like his father and grandfather before him. Even though he is still young, many people on the force think Choi Min Jae will become an exemplary policeman, due to his love for honesty and the rule of law. This reputation is noticed by the police’s Internal Affairs unit, which recruits him to join and investigate an anti-narcotics task force. The task force, some think, is corrupt. The task force is led by the veteran cop Park Kang Yoon (Jo Jin Woong), who seems to be no stranger to expensive, luxury goods – including a flashy car and apartment, as well as pricey suits and accessories. Park Kang Yoon announces that the unit will investigate a dangerous new drug that has recently hit the streets. But it is not long before Park Kang Yoon learns that someone in his unit could be informing on him. As Choi Min Jae digs deeper, however, he begins to understand that despite Park Kang Yoon’s seemingly unorthodox ways, the older police officer might not be as corrupt as he first seems... “The Policeman’s Lineage” is a 2022 South Korean movie that was directed by Lee Kyoo Man.
