Starring top MediaWorks comedians Adrian Pang and Kym Ng, Durian King is a 12-part dramedy that traces the descent of one Singaporean yuppie from the lawyering world to the bowels of Geylang.
Played by Adrian Pang, Ignatius Cheng is – as he likes to put it – “one of those high-priced lawyers you probably can never afford”. He lives life in the fast lane – swanky condo, Mercedes convertible, designer suits and sexy chicks.
His sugar—coated life comes tumbling down one day when an investment opportunity goes awry.
A moral fable about greed and pride, Durian King sees a yuppie thrown out of the orderly, air-conditioned comfort of District 10 into the anarchic chaos of Geylang.
