Hyeong-do (Ji-seob So) goes to the office every day, but isn't thrilled with the cubicles, the politics, his co-workers, or the management. His job is murder.
Literally. At this company, death is all in a day's work. Hyeong-do is a corporate assassin, working for a company specializing in contract killings. He's one of the best, and a loyal employee. But when his new trainee gets killed on the job, he feels an obligation to care for the kid's family - and taking his eye off the ball is not how a guy gets promoted. Now, Hyeong-do wants out of the cutthroat rat race to start a new life, but his colleagues have different plans - and "retirement" may come at a far bloodier price than expected.

One day Ji Hyeong-Do's perfect life as first-rate killer starts to change, however, when he chooses not to follow a certain part of the order given to him. This leads to his meeting with Yu Mi-yeon (Mi-yeon Lee), mother of two children. And Yu Mi-yeon was a singer Ji Hyeong-Do adored when he was young.
A 2012 Korean thriller "A Company Man" is more about the central character Ji Hyeong-Do and his transformation than about the brutal fights he has to go through. The action is sparse, especially in the first half of the film, but once it begins, it gets pretty tense with bloody and violent combat scenes.
Perhaps writer and director Sang-yoon Lim (his feature debut) could have developed the relationship between the salaried killer and the retired singer. Some of the subplots are also underdeveloped, with a police detective whose role the film could have used more effectively. With the superb acting from the cast and intense climax, however, "A Company Man" is worth checking out.
I recommend this to anyone that appreciates a good drama, there are some action scenes but they are not the focal point. (although, that scene in the car was so freaking awesome!)
