Hot-blooded police hopefuls Park Seo-joon and Kang Ha-neul in Midnight Runner

Ha, the bromance is strong in this one. Park Seo-joon (Fight My Way) and Kang Haneul’s (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) upcoming film Midnight Runner, or Youth Cops if you translate the Korean title literally, is set to premiere in theaters in a couple of weeks. This is one of Kang Haneul’s last film projects before he enters military service, and since he had to back out of Bad Guys 2 last minute, I’ll just have to console myself with Midnight Runner and his other upcoming film Recall the Night.

The action comedy will center around two students at Korean National Police University who get caught up in a kidnapping case when they are the only eyewitnesses to the crime. When the authorities, and their future sunbaes, reach a dead end due to lack of evidence and frustrating bureaucratic obstacles, they decide to embark on their own amateur investigation, which gets them into all sorts of hilarious trouble.

What I’m most looking forward to, though, is the comic bromance between the two boys. You can’t exactly call them two peas in a pod: Park Seo-joon is a punch first, ask questions later kind of guy, while Kang Haneul is a bit of a dork and a stickler for the rules. But this is one of those “opposites attract” situations, and it’s so cute watching Park Seo-joon teach Kang Haneul how to fist-bump and question a suspect (“use banmal”). Though Kang Haneul’s studiousness does pay off when he gets all the answers to instructor Sung Dong-il’s (Real, Hwarang) questions, and takes down a suspect using what he learned in combat classes. I love how he’s as surprised as anyone else when he manages to do it: “Whoa! Try it like they taught us. It actually works.”

I love a good comedy in the summer, and Midnight Runner looks like it’s going to offer some quality funny with a good dose of action and bromance thrown into the mix. The film will premiere on August 9 in Korean theaters. Can’t wait to see Park Seo-joon’s chicken poses and Kang Haneul flipping everyone off!

I can't even express how excited I am for this movie! I've been waiting for it ever since they first announced Park Seo Joon and Kang Ha Neul as the leads. They are so good when it comes to bromance especially Park Seo Joon, I hope the movie will get an international screening.

Kang Ha neul as nerdy young police? Check!
Park Seo joon as hot blooded young police? Check!

I don't want to see one of them die in this movie, you hear me? Korean Movies who are tagged as comedy ALWAYS make us cry in the end.

I really can't wait to see this!!!! I've been wanting KHN to do another comedy film because he's been so great in his prior performances, and now I couldn't be more excited that this also includes PSJ as costar!!!!! I hope this one sustains the hilarious hijinks and fun atmosphere all the way through and avoids the drippy melodramatic mess that so many Korean "comedies" end up heading toward in the end. We need something to cheer us up after the end of Fight For My Way!!!

I am so not ready to lose KHN !
His last memory I can hold in 2 years for 20hours of tormented dark soul flippery love from the 8th prince?

I mourn his back out from Bad Guys real bad. This is remedy. He should act like Twenty for the rest of my life, sunray everyday :)

Why does PSJ looks like he was born to be a comedic action star?
