Hong Kong Deltamac DVD edition

Text below written 2018-08-27



A huge blockbuster HIT in South Korea this action-comedy is purely mainstream but still an entertaining popcorn flick.


The Pre-Police school academy of 2015 has new hopeful recruits, among them the top student Hee-yeol (Kang Ha-neul)
and poor Gi-jun (Park Seo-jun) and they, surprise ..., become buddies. Both of them advance into Police University for
4 years of education and the film then jumps 2 years ahead and to the
Class of 2017.

A free evening, out on the town (Seoul), the duo witness a young woman being abducted by men in a black car. They
report it to the local police station in Gangnam, but are ignored. So, they may be not even newbie policemen yet, but
feel that something has to be done and they start investigating on their own, searching for a lead, anything.

DVD presented in anamorphic widescreen and a korean DTS 5.1 or 5.1 DD audio with english subtitles.
Extras without english subtitles: Trailer, making of featurettes, showcase clip, Kang Ha-neul and Park Seo-jun's roles,
Hong Kong Gala premiere and interviews with director and Kang Ha-neul
