Well Go USA have announced the release of the South Korean drama ‘A Taxi Driver’ (택시운전사) on US Blu-ray from April 17, 2018.

Directed by Jang Hun, the film follows a taxi driver from Seoul who accidentally gets involved in a German journalist’s reporting of the events of the Gwangju Uprising in 1980. The cast includes Song Kang-Ho, Thomas Kretschmann, Yu Hae-Jin, and Ryoo Joon-Yeol.

Synopsis: In this powerful true story set in 1980, a down-on-his-luck taxi driver from Seoul is hired by a foreign journalist who wants to go to the town of Gwangju for the day. They arrive to find a city under siege by the military government, with the citizens, led by a determined group of college students, rising up to demand freedom. What began as an easy fare becomes a life-or-death struggle in the midst of the Gwangju Uprising, a critical event in the history of modern South Korea.
