The 1980s was a decade of great cultural upheaval. It gave us suits with padded shoulders, the revival of muscle cars and the rise of hip-hop on our Walkmans.
If you want to relive those days or get some tips on how to dress retro, Netflix’s new K-movie Seoul Vibe is bringing us back to 1988 with vintage car chases, ostentatious jewellery and the Seoul Summer Olympics.
In the movie — set to release on August 26 — we meet the Sanggye Supreme Team, a rag-tag group of street racers, mechanics and taxi drivers, who become entangled in an investigation into illegal funds during the Olympics.
We have Dong-wook (Yoo Ah-in) who is the leader of the team and the best driver, Bok-nam (Lee Kyu-hyung), a taxi driver and “human navigator”, and Woo San (Go Kyung-pyo), a DJ.
Yoon-hee (Park Ju-hyun) is Dong-wook’s younger sister and the president of Seoul’s biggest biker club. Joon-ki (Ong Seong-wu) is a mechanic and the maknae (youngest member) of the team.
