Directed by Lee Hae-Young (The Silenced), BELIEVER, the stylish, action-packed remake of Johnnie To’s Drug War, hits digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD October 30 from Well Go USA Entertainment. While technically a remake, Cary Darling of The Houston Chronicle notes that “Lee Hae-Yeong’s gripping retelling … stands on its own and is different enough from the original to make it less a clone and more of a genuflection.” The story follows an investigator who, in an effort to bring down the boss of Asia’s biggest drug cartel, conspires with a lowly member of the gang seeking revenge against the boss. BELIEVER, stars Cho Jin-woong (The Handmaiden), Ryu Jun-yeol (A Taxi Driver), Kim Joo-hyuck (The Servant), Kim Sung-ryoung (The Target), Park Hae-jun (Unforgettable) and Cha Seoung-won (Man on High Heels).
A low-level drug dealer facing prosecution conspires with a dangerously ambitious cop to bring down a major cartel’s psychotic kingpin in this electric crime thriller, based on Johnnie To’s critically-acclaimed Drug War.
