Bloody Tie (Hangul사생결단; RRSasaeng gyeoldan; lit. "A Life-or-Death Decision") is a 2006 South Korean film. Directed by Choi Ho, it stars Hwang Jung-min as a detective trying to track down a drug lord by cooperating with a mid-level drug dealer, played by Ryoo Seung-bum.


Sang-do (Ryoo Seung-bum) is a fast talking crystal meth dealer who considers himself more of a businessman than a criminal. Sang-do has been involved in the drug business all of his life. His uncle was a drug dealer (Kim Hee-ra), specializing in manufacturing crystal meth. Sang-do's mother died when one of his uncle’s meth labs blew up in an accident.

Do Jin-kwang (Hwang Jung-min) is a hard-nosed cop who doesn't always play by the rules. Do's partner died four years ago, while trying to take down the top drug dealer Jang Chul (Lee Do-kyeong) in Busan. Since his partner's death, Do has been driven to arrest Jang Chul and this time he plans to use Sang-do to finally take him down.[2][3]
