- Writerby Pierce Conran
The film is already one of the most anticipated titles of the end of year period, due to its combination of superstars JUNG Woo-sung, last seen in Remember you this year and soon to be seen in Asura, with ZO In-sung, who has not appeared in a film since 2008’s A Frozen Flower. The film follows a man who fights tooth and nail to become a prosecutor and begins to abuse the system through his connections when he starts to taste power.
Featuring alongside the big stars are character actor BAE Sung-woo, seen in Veteran (2015), Inside Men (2015) and many other hits, and KIM A-joong, the breakout star of 200 Pounds Beauty (2006), who was last seen in 2013’s romantic comedy Steal My Heart. The King also features RYU Jun-yeol (One Way Trip, 2016), JUNG Eun-chae (Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, 2013) and KIM Eui-sung (TRAIN TO BUSAN, 2016).
Prior to his hit period drama The Face Reader, which featured SONG Kang-ho, director HAN helmed the offbeat romantic comedy Rules Of Dating (2005) and the gangster drama The Show Must Go On (2007), also starring SONG.
