Actor Kang Don Won made a pointed comment about Korean politics and society during a recent interview.
On December 14, the actor sat down with media outlet 'Insight' to discuss his upcoming film, 'Master.' The movie gained attention even before being released because it seems to have a lot of similarities with what is happening in Korean politics these days.
Kang Don Won stated, "I don't think there's anybody out there who thinks Korea is a very just country. I was hoping that the viewers would relieve their stress through the movie because I felt satisfied that way, too."
Regarding the movie having a similar plot as the Choi Soon-Sil scandal, he said, "We didn't know while filming, but I don't think Korean citizens are angry over just this scandal...It's everything they've been enduring up until now."
Kang Dong Won plays a righteous police detective in the new movie, 'Master,' which will be released in theaters on December 21.
