Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for Seoul Vibe, the upcoming fast-paced action thriller starring South Korean actors Yoo Ah-in and Koh Kyung-Pyo. The film will be available for streaming on August 26.
”When choosing the exterior look of the vehicles, we wanted to aim for hip-hop and retro feel. I like to call this a ‘hip-tro’ vibe.” director Moon Hyun-sung said in a statement. “Seoul Vibe is also packed with colorful visuals, funky music and retro fashion that bring the trendy 1980s to life.”
The trailer features a ragtag team of drivers and mechanics led by Dong-wook, a talented driver who’s got perfect drifting skills. Together, they will try to stop a massive money-laundering ring just days before the country’s highly-anticipated 1988 Seoul Olympics.
