The streaming giant officially announced the production and cast of its newest K-endeavor, Seoul Vibe. A film completely unlike Sweet and Sour, this project is a treat for thrill-seekers who love crime mysteries embellished with adrenaline-pumping car chases.
Here's everything we know so far about "Seoul Vibe".
Set in the backdrop of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, it centers on the drivers of the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team, who suddenly find themselves entangled in the slush fund investigation of a powerful person on the same day as the Olympics’ opening ceremony. Netflix further describes, “With all eyes of the world on Seoul with the pending Olympic Games, the chaos in the city provides opportune timing for moving illegal funds. The special operation to chase the money reels in baby drivers with amazing drifting skills.”
Seoul Vibe’s star-studded cast is led by the reunion of Chicago Typewriter actors Yoo Ah In and Go Kyung Pyo. Ah In is set to play Dong-wook in the film, the team’s top drifter and leader, while Kyung Pyo will portray DJ John Woo, a sentimental figure who often lightens up the mood in the group.
Joining them is Hi Bye, Mama and Prison Playbook star Lee Kyu Hyung as Bok Nam, the team’s geographical genius who knows the streets of Seoul like the back of his hand. Meanwhile, Park Ju Hyun of Mouse and Extracurricular fame will step into the shoes of Ah In’s younger sister, Yoon-hee, “the charming president of the top bikers’ club in Seoul.”
Other actors rounding up the cast are Ong Seong Wu, Kim Sung Kyun, Jung Woong In, and Moon So Ri.
Set to direct Seoul Vibe is Moon Hyun Sung, best known for his work on the Korean films As One and The King’s Case Note.
While there’s no release date yet, keep in mind this action blockbuster will be available soon exclusively on Netflix.
