“The Drug King” is a fantastic movie, directed by none other than Lee Nguyen. The film stars Kim Sung-Gyung who plays the role of David Storey, a crack addict who is turned into a local drug kingpin. The movie tells the story of Storey’s rise to power and his fall, who ruled the drug business in the latter part of the 1980s. It’s among the top films of the year and it demonstrates how the media can easily create sensationalism about a story before it’s been properly studied. Because you’ll be involved, I suggest watching the film with a friend.
