‘Inside Men’ Director Woo Wraps Busan-Set Thriller ‘Drug King’

South Korean crime drama “Drug King” has wrapped up production. Starring Song Kang-ho (“Snowpiercer”) and Bae Doo-na (“Sense 8”), two of South Korea’s biggest actors, the film is directed by Woo Min-ho. Woo’s credit includes “Inside Men,” which grossed $49.7 million and was the fifth biggest release in 2015.

The film is based on the true story of Lee Doo-sam, a drug dealer in Busan who was infamous back in the 1970s; the majority of the film’s shoot took place in Busan. Song plays the drug king, while Bae plays an intelligent, charming lobbyist.

Song’s latest work, “A Taxi Driver,” which opened in August, has grossed $84.4 million and crossed the 10-million admissions mark. “Taxi Driver” will screen in the BIFF’s Korean Cinema Today — Panorama section.

Distributed by Showbox, one of South Korea’s major film companies, “Drug King” is set for a 2018 release.
