Worth the watch !! if you liked Scarface and Narcos But not at that level

Its a decent movie if you like the Narcos driven hype and drug kingpin storyline at the moment. Korean cinema is generally very interesting with a lot of brilliant movies. The story is interesting , the directing overall is good but the movie in a few places lacks a smooth fluid transition between the different chapters of the storyline. The movie is a bit too long and feels dragged out by the time you reach the end they should have prioritized a bit better with what could be left out. The lead actor has done a good job along with many of the co-stars who have performed very well.

Korean Scarface/American gangster

A good movie to smoke up, kick back and enjoy. Try and keep up with the subtitles though, don't look away haha.

Classic gangster biopic

THE DRUG KING is another crowd-pleasing South Korean thriller, made with plenty of scope, an expansive background (both geographically and politically) and some fine acting from the leads. The 1970s setting allows for a great soundtrack and outlandish fashions. It's very similar in tone to the Donnie Yen film CHASING THE DRAGON and very bit as good. The excellent Song Kang-ho delivers another multi-layered turn as the man who works his way up from the very bottom to the very top, his desire for money the only thing that continues to drive him forward. There's even a role for the suitably expressive Doona Bae. The film is typically Korean in that it mixes comedic moments (the riff on the climax of SCARFACE is a particular delight) with bursts of extreme violence and melodrama, and the end result is the kind of film Scorsese made in his heyday.
