  • Park Seo-joon as Park Ki-joon (Ki-joon is a light-hearted, risk-taker who acts first and thinks later.)
  • Kang Ha-neul as Kang Hee-yeol (Hee-yeol is the total opposite of Ki-joon. He is fairly nerdy and more of thinker than a doer.)
  • Midnight Runners is a 2017 South Korean action comedy film directed by Jason Kim (Kim Ju-hwan).
  • The film was released on August 9, 2017.
  • As of September 14, five weeks after its release, the film reached 5.61 million admissions mark with US$39 million gross, making it the 4th highest-grossing South Korean film in 2017.
  • Midnight Runners was screened in 12 countries. After the initial release in local cinemas, the film was released in Indonesia on August 23, followed by North America on August 25, Australia on August 31 then proceeded to be screened in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Britain, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, and the Philippines.


  • To be honest Midnight Runners is not a masterpiece, but it’s still an enjoyable movie. It started funny and ended up having a really interesting story behind.
  • The big highlight of this movie is the cast. The two leads deliver and have incredible chemistry with each other.
  • Park Seo Joon and Kang Ha-Neul did an amazing job. You will fall in love with their inexperienced innocence, and their naive charm.
  • Friendship between Ki Joon and Hee Yeol was the most interesting thing to enjoy in this movie.
  • The bromance was so strong in this movie. Their partnership work so well because of their contrasting characteristics and charm. They complemented each other pretty well.
  •  In terms of the storyline, it’s pretty generic and you basically know exactly what’s going to happen. It was simple and predictable – but still worth the watch. Not a single moment of boredom felt.

My Rating – 8.5/10
