To make official the production of its new Korean original film Seoul Vibe, Netflix has introduced Yoo Ah-in, Go Kyung-pyo, Lee Kyu-hyung, Park Ju-hyun, Ong Seong-wu, Kim Sung-kyun, Moon So-ri, and Jung Woong-in as the project’s exceptional main cast.
Labeled as one of the platform’s blockbuster action films, Seoul Vibe revolves around an ambitious slush-fund robbery that is being strategically carried out amidst the hectic 1988 Seoul Olympics.
Award-winning artist Yoo Ah-in (Voice of Silence) has been roped in to play Dong-wook, leader of the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team—a crew of skilled drivers that soon gets caught up in a risky slush-fund investigation.
Other amazing actors who signed up for Yoo’s team include: Go Kyung-pyo (Seven Years of Night) as the crew’s unofficial DJ Woo-sam; Lee Kyu-hyung (Diva) as Bok-nam, an expert navigator who knows the streets of Seoul by heart; Park Ju-hyun as Dong-wook’s younger sister Yoon-hee, president of the city’s biggest bike club and the only female member of the crew; and finally, Ong Seong-wu as Joon-ki, the group’s reliable handyman who acts like a younger brother to Dong-wook.
In addition, actor Kim Sung-kyun (The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful) joins the cast as Secretary Lee, a giant money launderer commissioned to transport the slush fund. Moon So-ri (Three Sisters) will play Chief Kang In-sook, a manipulative loan shark who has been pulling strings to raise the slush fund. Completing the lineup is Jung Woong-in (Crazy Romance) as the chief prosecutor who will recruit the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team to execute an elaborate plan, one that includes a dangerous car chase, as part of his investigations on the slush fund.
Seoul Vibe, previously Seoul Grand Operation, will be helmed by director Moon Hyun-sung of the movie The King’s Case Note (2017). It targets to start filming sometime in July or August and make a worldwide release exclusively on Netflix.
