Hoping to bring a “The Fast & The Furious” vibe to South Korean cinema is director Han Jun-hee (“Coin Locker Girl”) with his latest action film “Hit-and-Run Squad”.
Eun Shi-yeon is a police lieutenant. She is demoted to a hit-and-run investigation team from the regional investigation unit at the National Police Agency. At the hit-and-run investigation team, Eun Shi-yeon works with Police Constable Seo Min-jae, who has a knack for cars, and Woo Sun-young . They try to catch Jung Jae-cheol. He is the first Formula One racer in South Korea, but he suddenly retired as a race car driver. He is now businessman.
Han Jun-hee has been able to call upon an able starcast for the project. Gong Hyo-jin, who was recently seen in the hit urban thriller “Door Lock” as well as in a special appearance in “Be With You” earlier last year, plays Eun Shi-yeon. Ryu Jun-yeol, who had an equally successful 2018 with “Little Forest” and “Believer” stars as the gearhead Constable Seo Min-jae while Jo Jun-seok, whose 2018 included the Song Kang-ho vehicle “Drug King” as well as the sleeper hit “Intimate Strangers”, plays the maniacal Jung Jae-cheol. The film releases in South Korea later this month.
