A Kai Ko Film From 2014 Is Finally Getting Released After His Father Paid $3.3mil For Its Movie Rights

In 2014, Taiwanese actor Kai Ko became the unofficial poster child for the consequences of drug use when he and Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan were arrested after a marijuana bust in Beijing.

He was blacklisted in China and as result, his scenes in the um, monster hit Monster Hunt were cut while another one of his films, A Choo, had its release date pushed back indefinitely.
