Hwang Jung Min reprises his role as the tenacious detective Seo Do Cheol, leading his Major Crimes Unit in a relentless pursuit of justice. This time, they confront a cunning serial killer who has plunged the nation into chaos. The investigation takes a dark turn when the killer taunts the authorities with online videos, publicly revealing their next target and escalating the public's fear. To combat this evolving threat, the seasoned team welcomes a new member, the idealistic rookie officer Park Sun Woo, played by Jung Hae In. Sun-woo's arrival promises unexpected twists and challenges for the veteran detectives.

A symbol of unwavering determination, Seo Do Cheol prioritizes catching criminals above all else. This unwavering pursuit of justice takes a toll, and I, The Executioner explores the personal struggles beneath his resolute exterior. Hwang Jung-min's powerful performance promises to captivate audiences once again.

A talented rookie cop with a strong sense of justice, Park Sun Woo admires Seo Do Cheol and his unwavering dedication to the law. Despite his youthful enthusiasm, Sun-woo possesses exceptional martial arts skills, earning him the online moniker "UFC cop." Jung Hae In brings a fresh perspective and youthful energy to the team, undergoing a physical transformation for the film's demanding action sequences.

Ryoo Seung Wan, a titan of Korean genre cinema, helms I, The Executioner. Known for his action-packed films like The Battleship Island and The Unjust, Ryoo promises to redefine the crime action genre with this new project. The film delves into a society grappling with disillusionment and the rise of crime fueled by a distorted sense of justice.

I, The Executioner departs from its predecessor by exploring the complexities of a society saturated with social media and fake news. The narrative delves into the blurred lines between good and evil, forcing audiences to question the information they consume and the true meaning of justice. Ryoo Seung Wan masterfully utilizes his signature action sequences to deliver a thrilling and thought-provoking cinematic experience.

I, The Executioner boasts a seasoned crew, including Director of Photography Choi Young Hwan and Stunt Coordinator Yoo Sang Seob, who previously collaborated with Ryoo Seung Wan on successful ventures like Escape from Mogadishu and Smugglers. The talented composer Chang Ki Ha, who debuted in Smugglers, joins the team, adding a new dimension to the film's immersive soundscape.

Hwang Jung Min marks his fourth appearance at the festival, following A Bittersweet Life (2005), The Wailing (2016), and The Spy Gone North (2018). For Jung Hae In, however, this will be his Cannes red carpet debut.

Veteran 2 aka I, The Executioner perfectly embodies the spirit of Cannes' Midnight Screenings, a program dedicated to showcasing thought-provoking and captivating films. With its blend of action, social commentary, and a stellar cast, this sequel is sure to be a major highlight of the festival.
