In the recently released Netflix K-drama Kingdom, Ryu Seung Ryong and Joo Ji Hoon are on opposite sides of the zombie outbreak and political struggle, and now over the on the movie side they just engaged in another battle. Ryu Seung Ryong’s bumbling cop squad movie Extreme Job was just released at the end of January, during a slow movie time slot no less, and has turned into a massive hit. On the Sunday of it’s release week, the movie sold over 1 million tickets breaking the record held by the second installment of the Along With the Gods movie costarring Joo Ji Hoon which sold 916K tickets. I watched the preview and the movie looks hella hilarious, about a mostly incompetent drug busting cop squad who decides to run a fried chicken restaurant by day in order to do surveillance at night across the street from a known drug lord operation. Eventually they get so good at selling fried chicken they can’t focus on being cops and the two sides all collide in what looks to be a thrilling drug bust taking down a cameo by veteran leading man Hwang Jung Min.
