Much of New World is about a succession battle after the don of the Goldmoon syndicate is killed. But do we know who actually killed him? Who's the guy in the car which pulls up next to his?

It's never explained in the film, but I would suspect there are two possibilities:

  1. Section Chief Kang
    It's possible he chose to do it, or orchestrate it, as part of the takedown of GoldMoon. After the leader is taken down, the entire organisation is thrown into chaos in a power struggle and they are able to get a real foothold of power in the gang.

  2. Vice Chairman Jang Su-Ki
    He wanted power and knew he had a chance to get it if the boss was killed. He could have acted on his own initiative or been lured into doing it by the Section Chief. Note - the other candidates for the leadership appear to accuse/suspect each other which is why I don't think they can be considered responsible.

Ultimately though, there's no right answer - just speculation!
