Action-comedy Arrest King’s trailer and posters

Lee Seon-kyun, doing a Pelvic Thrust of Victory™? Yeah, this movie’s gonna be a hoot.

Arrest King is the new crime-action comedy starring him alongside Park Joong-hoon (Haeundae), and is sort of like an odd-couple, buddy-cop flick if it were mixed with a knock-down, drag-out competition between the two said cop-rivals. It looks, frankly, hilarious. (Then again, I have bad taste in movies.)

Here’s the gist: Park Joong-hoon is the leader of the Mapo police department’s Team No. 1, who’s not above running a little interference in the name of improving his performance record. Lee Seon-kyun is the Seodaemun police department’s Team No. 3 leader — who routinely gets the criminals he captures stolen out from under him by Mapo’s sneaky leader. Well, NOT. THIS. TIME.

Cue the “Arrest King Competition” — no, really, it’s a literal competition with a cash prize of 30 million won (say, about $25,000). It’s pretty much the cop lotto. Thus ensues the battle to claim the title (and the money), replete with lots of rule-breaking, scheming, undermining, and outwitting.

As you can see from the trailer, Park’s the polished, slick cop with fancy clothes while Lee’s the scruffy, sorta-slackery cop who’s strapped for cash. My particular favorite moment is when Lee sees the Arrest King poster on the wall and yells frustratedly, “Why am I not told about these things?! WHY?!” (I’m guessing that it’s because he’s just realizing that the answer to his fiscal problems was right in front of him all along.)

The little meter in the corner tallies each cop’s arrests, with different crimes bringing in different point values. For instance, larceny brings in 10 points, gambling nets 25, and murder a nice round 50. Once Park and Lee go head-to-head, they make the agreement: “The first one to cuff the criminal gets the credit.” And off they go!

Arrest King is slated for a May release.

I cannot wait to watch this! Unfortunately I don't live in either Korea or LA so I guess I'll get to watch this near the end of the year? >.<

Thanks for the news and the awesome pictures, JB!

This movie looks hilarious and I looove LSK. There seem to be no women though. It would be great if one the criminals they are after ends up being a woman who's working to outwit them both!...hijinks ensue ;D

I have been wondering the same thing. I think the movie was just released so I am patiently (not really!) waiting until its subbed.

javabeans, how does one go about trademarking such a fabulous term such as "Pelvic Thurst of Victory" ? I'm thinking there's some serious money to be made with this :)

LSK was always well suited for an action-comedy; that's good casting (nice to see a mini reunion of the CP cast).

This looks hilarious and I'm already rooting for LSK's character. Hee. What I find even more hilarious is that their competition carries to the cops' superiors.

This. Movie. Will. Be. AWESOME! I hope so. I can't wait to watch it. I'm always on the side of the cop that's always scruffy and down on his luck. It's fun cheering on the underdog. Excited YAY!

I guess I'll be the first... Yeah, Park Joong-hoon! I hope his character is a bundle of problems/shortcomings under the nice suit and record.
And Lee Seon-kyun looks nice a bit scruffy and whiny.
I hope this movie is funny, but the trailer didn't really have me laughing, sadly.
