Verdict on Seoul Vibe

Seoul Vibe is an action thriller that follows a group of young drivers who are hired to become drivers for an illegal government operation. In what is a mix of a ‘Fast Franchise’ and ‘Baby Driver’, we get a fun series of chases. While keeping the serious nature to what is going on if things aren’t completed.

The story is kept simple, with the crew needing to work for an illegal operation to expose a larger truth. Having heist elements thrown in for extra flare thrown into the story.

The driver’s team work very well together, showing excellent chemistry throughout. They show their loyalty are reckless behaviour because of their age. The performances help in this, as the actors work together to give us a potential Korean Fast and Furious Franchise.

In the action sequences, we get plenty of chases, with each one offering up a different problem for the characters to overcome to survive. They are high-octane but will keep things light with an odd one-liner along the way.

Where to Watch: Seoul Vibe is on Netflix.

Final Thoughts Seoul Vibe is a flashy, fun action thriller.
