Seoul Vibe has been described an action blockbuster set against the backdrop of the 1988 Seoul Olympics. It tells the story of an unbelievably ambitious plot for a slush fund robbery, following the drivers of the “Sanggye-dong Supreme Team” who get mired in the investigation of the robbery.
The film will be directed by Moon Hyun-sung, who is known for his work on the K-drama As One and the 2017 movie The King’s Case Note.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Seoul Vibe lead Yoo Ah-in will act in another Netflix Korean title, the drama Goodbye Earth (also known as The Fool At The End Of The World).
