‘The Roundup Movie’: Plot & Cast

The storyline of the movie ‘The Roundup’ is loosely inspired by a serial kidnapping and murder case that were happing in the Philippines between the years 2008 and 2012. Though, unlike the movie where the criminals are punished, the real incident is still a big mystery for all of us out there.

The setup of the plot is in Garibong-dong where an operation has been carried out for four years. We see detective Ma Seok-do and captain Jeon II-man going to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to find a suspect name Yoo Jong-hoon. They meet a few Korean living in Vietnam, and Jong-hoon is interrogated by Ma. Upon the questioning, it is revealed that Jong-hoon turned himself in because he was tried to be killed by Lee JD.

Though, things again begin to fall into their place when the duo is deported back to Korea and finds out that Hae-sang has also landed in the country to meet Choon-baek.

The extortion case goes on and on, and we see Kang trying to escape from Korea with the money which is with Jang I-soo. His contacts inform him about the intentions of I-soo and his plan of escaping to China. In this entire process of getting the money, Kang is arrested by Ma.
