There is a movie generating hot buzz even before its release. It is “The Roundup: Punishment”, where Kim Mu-yeol appears as the new villain
The film “The Roundup: Punishment” depicts an upgraded crime crackdown operation led by monster detective Ma Seok-do (Ma Dong-seok) and his cybercrime investigation team formed to apprehend the largest illegal online gambling organization in Korea.
In each installment of the series, the character playing the villain role garnered attention. This time, actor Kim Mu-yeol appears as the antagonist Baek Chang-ki. Baek Chang-ki is a former special forces mercenary who leads the online gambling organization and confronts Ma Seok-do.
“The Outlaws” series has been gaining significant love from the audience in each of its previous three installments, with two of them surpassing 10 million audiences. Therefore, some are already expecting “The Roundup: Punishment” to reach 10 million audiences even before its release.
While some people express skepticism, others have positive reactions such as “I’m most looking forward to the villain Kim Mu-yeol“.
The previous two installments of “The Outlaws” were both released in May, and it is expected that the fourth installment will also be released in May next year. Whether “The Outlaws” series can once again surpass 10 million audiences and achieve long-term success is being closely watched.
Directed by Heo Myeong-haeng, known for films like “Extreme Job”, “Train to Busan” and “New World”, “The Roundup: Punishment” features a cast including Ma Dong-seok, Kim Mu-yeol and Lee Dong-hwi.
