A band of cops are about to pull off an Extreme Job in the trailer to this upcoming Korean action-comedy from director Lee Byeong-Heon.
The narcotics team works hard day and night, but their performance remains at an all-time low, leading them to become the ugly duckling of the police department and potentially face dismantlement. Captain Ko gets intel about an international drug deal and embarks on a risky undercover mission with his entire team. In order to establish around-the-clock and up-close-and-personal surveillance, the team takes over a rundown chicken joint across the street from the drug gang’s safe house. But things take an unexpected turn when Detective Ma’s yet unrevealed culinary talents begins to shine, turning the chicken restaurant famous overnight. Should we chase chickens or criminals? When customers begin to flock in, undercover work gets pushed to the back burner so the detectives can focus on frying chicken. As a result, the team misses the big drug deal, even though it happens right under their nose. Now, with nowhere to go, the detectives launch a desperate mop-up operation.
The film stars Ryu Seung-yong, Lee Hanee, Jin Sun-kyu, and Lee Dong-hwi.
The film makes its U.S. debut at CGV Cinemas in Los Angeles and Buena Park on January 25, 2019 followed by a limited nationwide release on February 1, 2019 from CJ Entertainment.
