Inside Man helmer Woo Min-ho is officially en route to theaters December 19 with his newest pic, The Drug King. The official trailer and poster are out as well, though it’s the poster at the bottom of the page that deserves to be heralded as much as there’s aplenty in reasons why multiaward-winning actor Song Kang-ho gets to take the full page. Apart from his accolades, his conviction shows in all its purity.
RISE AND FALL OF A DRUG LORD WHO STUNNED THE NATION IN 1970s
Lee Doo-sam (SONG Kang-ho) is a small time smuggler in Busan, Korea. One day, he helps the mob smuggle meth by chance and finds himself falling into the dark crime world. Being quick-witted and full of ambition, he eventually overtakes the underworld and starts to lead a double life: a good community leader during day but during the night, an infamous drug lord who rules an empire.
Song reunites with actor Cho Jung-seok (The Face Reader), and is also joined by Bae Doo-na (Sense8), Lee Sung-Min (The Witness), and many more.
