Netflix confirmed the release of the movie Seoul Vibe in August and unveiled a launching poster alongside the news.
Seoul Vibe tells the story of the drivers of the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team that become mired in the slush fund investigation of a powerful person on the very day of the 1988 Seoul Olympics opening ceremony. The movie made headlines when it announced its stellar cast – Yoo Ah In, Ko Kyung Pyo, Lee Kyu Hyung, Park Ju Hyun, Ong Seong Wu, Oh Jung Se, Kim Sung Kyun, Moon So Ri, and Jung Woong In.
The released launching poster foretells intense car chasing action scenes that’ll fully live up to the action movie about cars. The poster shows the number 88 made by skid marks and the tire smoke caused by the drifts. One thing to look for is how the movie showcases a slew of old cars that were popular in 1988 instead of the supercars that come to mind when thinking of car chasing scenes. Here, a phrase that reads “1988, a super-special mission begins” raises curiosity about the unusual op surrounding the slush funds.
Seoul Vibe comes from The King’s Case Note director Moon Hyung Sung. Yoo Ah In plays Dong Wook, the best drifter; Ko Kyung Pyo plays DJ Woo Sam; Lee Kyu Hyung plays human navigator Bok Nam; Park Ju Hyun plays biker girl Yoon Hee; and Ong Seong Wu plays Joon Ki, the “MacGyver” of the crew. Joining them in the movie are the veteran actors – Kim Sung Kyun as Chief Lee, who’s in charge of transporting the VIP’s slush funds; Moon So Ri plays Chairman Kang, the unofficial second-in-command in Korea; Oh Jung Se plays Prosecutor Ahn, who brings in the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team to his investigation; and Jung Woong In plays the chief prosecutor.
Meanwhile, Seoul Vibe will be released exclusively on Netflix on August 26th.
