The King 2017

What is it like for a person of power to live in Korean society? Apparently, it’s like being royalty.

From childhood, Park Tae Soo yearned for power. Born in a poor family, he reigned over fellow students with his fist before he caught a glimpse of what he called “real power” -- the sight of his thug father being beaten up by a pencil-neck prosecutor. It was then that he decided to pursue a career in law, the biggest symbol of power in the 90’s. After entering the most prestigious law school, experiencing democratic resistance in Korea, Tae Soo finally reaches his goal of becoming a prosecutor, but his life is no better than a salary man. By chance, he joins a clique of the powerful prosecutors with wealth and authority. He finally gets a taste of a life of the top hierarchy, but as he enjoys the sweetness of supremacy, he also sees the cruel side of it. Tae Soo soon realizes that real power comes at a price: forfeiting one’s conscience and pride. Entering star prosecutor Han Kang Shik’s inner circle, he slowly commences on a descent into corruption and ascent to power.
