Seoul Vibe atmosphere premises
Courtesy of Netflix, this film focuses on the Sanggye-dong Supreme Team pilots who become embroiled in a black money investigation after receiving the proverbial offer that can’t be refused. Set just before the start of the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, this retro action film promises to be high-octane.
The atmosphere of Seoul, which combines elements of a crime thriller with a drag race, definitely scores with its originality. Flanked by its 1988 setting and beloved cast, it looks like the reasonably ambitious storyline could be pulled through. It remains to be seen whether the right balance can be found between flashy action sets and a more corporate business level.
Final Thoughts on Seoul Vibe
What works for the film is the amount of effort that went into it. A group of criminals who have to participate in investigations in exchange for their freedom is not an entirely new concept. But the filmmakers managed to give it a new perspective. The details play a very important role in the success of the film. From the settings to the dialogues and the plot.
Of course, there are some fantastic elements, but they fit seamlessly into the narrative rather than being disruptive. And the jokes landed, although we have a feeling some of them got lost in translation. Much of that humor, however, revolved around the “men and their toys” trope. It’s fun for women and understandable for men, which makes it work.
Overall it was a great watch. We were looking forward to something like this and Korean cinema delivered. Special credit goes to Yoo Ah In for making Dong Wook’s character his own. Ms. Kang, especially in the scene where she puts Hyeon Gyun inside
Instead of the way most women dream of whenever a man questions their authority as a woman, we have a question for the actress who played the role. Moon So Ri mentions that the director wanted the character to be more elegant, but she disagreed with him because she felt Ms. Kang’s greed should make her more aggressive. What if we had seen the Director’s Cut? woman
Kang had a quick grasp of people and situations, which indicates his intelligence and cool temper. What if the actor dressed up as “elegance” for the character and was surprised by his ruthlessness? a character to rival Dong Wook? Other than that, Seoul Vibe was a great movie and we’ll be scolding our friends for watching it.
Hopefully, they make a sequel and we’ll see more of the shenanigans of this ragtag crew that dreams big and then risks it all to make those dreams come true. We keep our fingers crossed for that.
