South Korean actors Kim Dong-wook and Park Se-wan will take on the roles of police officers in a “worst performing team” in the upcoming series “Seoul Busters,” which is set for a September release.

Kim and Park’s new project was confirmed in a press statement of a Korea-based streaming platform on Tuesday, May 21, where screenwriters Lee Young-chul and Lee Kwang-jae were tapped to write the script.


“Seoul Busters” tells the story of the fictional Songwon Homicide Division, whose members are known for doing the “bare minimum” and are considered to be the “very worst performers” in the Korean police force.

With the team’s lackluster performance in mind, a “shining” new captain was hired in hopes of changing their dynamic for the better.

“Compiled of a group of misfit officers who seemingly fell into their roles, management is looking to turn things around following the appointment of a new captain to the team. A shining star who’s excelled at everything he’s done, the fresh-faced captain has his work cut out for him,” the statement added.

Kim will star as police captain Dongbang Yubin while Park will portray the role of the carefree Seo Min-seo.

Also cast in the series are Park Ji-hwan, Seo Hyunwoo, and Lee Seungwoo.

The upcoming series will be directed by filmmakers Ahn Jong-yeon and Shin Joong-hoon.

Kim is a screen veteran best known for his performances in the K-dramas “Find Me in Your Memory” and “You Are My Spring,” as well as the films “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds” and “Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days.”


Meanwhile, Park made a name for herself after starring in the hit series “School 2017,” “ I’m Not a Robot,” and “Doona!”
