The Man Standing Next, a South Korean political drama, will open at CGV Buena Park on January 24th and CGV Los Angeles on January 31st. The film tells the story of a 1970 scandal in the KCIA, the Korean Central Intelligence Agency, and is based on the non-fiction hit book KCIA Chiefs.

In the 1970s, Korea is under absolute control of President PARK (LEE Sung-min) who controls the KCIA, the organization with an edge over any branch of government. The director of KCIA, KIM Gyu-pyeong (LEE Byung-hun), is a shoe-in for second-in-command. In the midst of reign of fear, a former KCIA director, PARK Yong-gak (KWAK Do-won) who knows all about the government’s obscure and illegal operations, exiles to the U.S., where he opens the floodgate to the investigation of ‘Koreagate’. As tension escalates, stifling political maneuvering by those desiring power collide explosively.
