The Hong Kong police are hunting a counterfeiting gang led by a mastermind code-named "Painter". In order to crack the true identity of him, the police recruits gang member Lee Man to unmask "Painter's" secret identity.
In 1993, former military officer Suk-young Park is recruited as a spy by South Korea's National Intelligence Service, and given the code name "Black Venus". He is then sent to infiltrate a group of high-ranking North Korean officials based in Beijing, with the ultimate goal of acquiring information on the North's nuclear program. After becoming close to Myong-un Ri, a key power broker, Black Venus succeeds beyond his wildest dreams of gaining the trust of North Korea's leadership. But political machinations on both sides of the border threaten to derail his accomplishments.Written by
Nice production values and period-dressing, scenes set in Seoul, Beijing and Pyongyang. Sympathetic view of North Korea and surprisingly General Kim, harsh slant on SK politicians and Security Agencies. Well made and acted movie, largely ends up as a male bro pic but unification proselytizing just too much.
