“The Drug King” is an amazing film, directed by none other than Lee Nguyen. The film stars Kim Sung-Gyung who plays David Storey, a crack addict who turns into the local drug kingpin. The film tells the story of Storey’s rise and fall who ruled the drug industry in the latter part of the 1980s. It’s one of the best films of the year, and it shows how media can easily create sensationalism about a story that has not been properly investigated. I would suggest watching the film with a friend because you’ll get so involved.
The film begins in the year 1980, when the US government launches an investigation on the rise of drug use across the country. Two undercover cops, Det. Kim and Capt. Sam are assigned to the case. They soon discover that the kingpins have a very organised method of working.
Soon, they find out that Cho Soon, a drug lord, has a hidden meeting spot that is used for the distribution of tons of cocaine and heroin across the nation. In exchange the drug lord offers to stop them from consuming drugs from being introduced to the American market. The authorities were successful in stopping the operation when the US government erroneously stole drugs from the South Korean consulate. The drug Kingpin and his associates were arrested and the authorities left it up to the cops to find the drug lord.
Soon after the bust, cops track down the drug king, and then transport them to prison. The film leaps forward 11 years, when the South Korean president visits Korea. They soon become close and fall in love. They intend to liberate North Korea from communism, but once they get there, they discover that the drug lord has already fled. Now they have to work together to end the drug war once and for all.
ดูซีรีย์เกาหลี After the film is over the action shifts to New York City where the two police officers are brought before a judge to confront the drug King. Lee Do-Hui plays the main character, Kim Kwon-soo, better known as Kimbo and was played by Kwak Dieng. The two cops converse over the phone, and the film shows them hunting down the drug lord inside the huge nightclub. They arrive at the right moment to save President Obama from a bullet. The police department, impressed by their efforts, grants the bail to be part of the investigation into the drug lord’s whereabouts.
The next day, the police officers are visited by a Yakuza boss, Tong Soo. Tong Soo threatens to kill Kim in the event that he doesn’t hand him the drugs. He also wants to know information regarding the presidential candidate. Kim is terrified, but is forced to act and asks the police to bring him to Kuk Sa Tong nightclub. There, he meets Tong Soo, who threatens to murder Kim in the event that they don’t bring the drugs. They agree to give him 10 million dollars if his demands are met. Kim is freaked out by the prospect of his life being spared, so he agrees to Tong’s demands.
Kim and Tong arrive at the airport to pick Kimbo up a few days later. But Park Chul-sik stops them as a south Korean national well-known for being a fraudster. He pretends to be President Chun Doo, and he swindles the Chinese people. He then flees to Hong Kong but not before giving the president a severely swollen face. Tong Soo helps Kim and Kimbo to transfer the money to Hong Kong. The two soon become enemies, but they try to escape with the drugs. Chow helps them escape the airport by supplying them with drugs.
A year later, Kim and Tong return to Hong Kong to defend their honour against Park and his army of martial arts expert soldiers. But they are betrayed by Park, who intends to make use of their newfound friendship to expand his drug empire. Kim must now rely on Tong Soo, his master, to defeat Park and his aides and remove Hong Kong’s streets their grasps. Kim’s childhood friend Lee Doo SAM is now the real enemy.

The film is very entertaining, with great fighting sequences and a number of well-timed comedy scenes, making it a well-written movie with plenty of entertainment value.
