Seoul Vibe is an action blockbuster revving with pulse-pounding pursuit. The drivers of the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team become mired in the slush fund investigation of a powerful person on the very day of the 1988 Seoul Olympics opening ceremony. 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.
Yoo Ah-in plays Dong-wook, the top drifter leading the Sanggye-dong crew. Yoo will be appearing on the soon-to-be-released Netflix Original Series Hellbound. He has received the Best Actor award at both the Blue Dragon Awards and the Baeksang Arts Awards. Ko Kyoung-pyo plays DJ John woo, someone who lightens up the mood for the Sanggye-dong crew. Lee Kyoo-hyung plays Bok-nam, who knows the geography of Seoul like the back of his hand.
Park Ju-hyun plays Dong-wook’s younger sister Yoon-hee, the charming president of the top bikers’ club in Seoul. For her role in the Netflix Original Series Extracurricular, Park nabbed the Best New Actress award at the Baeksang Arts Awards. Ong Seong-wu plays Joon-gi, the MacGyver-esque Sanggye-dong crew member who is like a younger brother to Dong-wook and somewhat old-fashioned in his ways. Kim Sung-kyun plays Secretary Lee, a key figure in managing the money laundering and slush fund delivery. He will also be appearing in the upcoming Netflix Original Series D.P. Jung Woong-in plays the chief prosecutor who recruits the Sanggye-dong crew for a crucial mission. Lastly, Moon So-ri plays Chief Kang In-sook, the loan shark mogul and the shadow figure in control behind the powerful person.
At the helm is director Moon Hyun-sung who has forged solid works such as the heartfelt drama As One and the comedic investigative film The King’s Case Note. Pumped up by the fervor of the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the rhythmical beat of old-school hip hop, the Netflix film Seoul Vibe promises to drive up adrenaline levels with the thrill of the chase and old-fashioned drifting action.
