Years later, the mission's sole survivor Jin-pyo (Kim Sang-Joong, Palace) and his adopted son Yoon-sung (Lee Min-Ho) return to South Korea to exact revenge on the five men behind the betrayal. One by one, Yoon-sung (the í░City Hunterí▒) exposes his targets' crimes and delivers them to dogged prosecutor Young-ju (Lee Joon-Hyuk, City Hall).
