Go Kyung-pyo and Park Ju-hyun might work in a Netflix original movie together!
On March 2, it was reported that Go has been cast for the upcoming movie Seoul Grand Operation (literal title). Actress Park’s agency 935 Entertainment also confirmed that she is reviewing the film’s script. Details of the roles offered to them have not been divulged.
Seoul Grand Operation is set to be the first Netflix original Korean movie set during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. It is a heist film involving scores of baby drivers in Seoul who carry out a grand plan to embezzle money out of VIP slush funds.
Yoo Ah-in (#Alive) is confirmed to headline the project, along with actress Go Yoon–jung, who appeared in the Netflix series Sweet Home (2020). Ong Seong-wu, who is set to make his big-screen debut with the musical film Life Is Beautiful, is also in talks to appear in the film.
Go Kyung-pyo debuted as a comedian on Saturday Night Live Korea in the early 2010s before moving on to acting in dramas like Flower Boy Next Door (2013) and Naeil’s Cantabile (2014). His role in Reply 1988 (2015–2016) gained him widespread national recognition, turning him into a leading star with dramas like Jealousy Incarnate/Don’t Dare to Dream (2016), Chicago Typewriter (2017), Strongest Deliveryman (2017), Cross (2018), and Private Lives (2020). If he says yes to Seoul Grand Operation, Go will be reuniting with his Chicago Typewriter co-star Yoo Ah-in.
Park Ju-hyun, on the other hand, is a young rookie actress who debuted with a minor role in the movie The Dude in Me (2019). She then went on to star in A Piece of Your Mind (2020), as well as drama specials, before getting her big break with the Netflix original series Extracurricular (2020). She then went on to secure her next lead role in Zombie Detective (2020).
Seoul Grand Operation will be directed by The King’s Case Note (2017) director Moon Hyun-sung and is expected to begin filming in the second half of 2021. It will be released exclusively through Netflix.
