There’s a reason Korean netizens joke that Lee So Hyuk and Seo In Guk must have been husband and wife in their past lives- “Pipeline”‘s already their third work together! Before this 2021 May movie, they starred in “High School King of Savvy” (2014 drama) and “One Day Destruction Entered the Front Door of My House” (2021 drama) already!

Synopsis

Geon woo (played by Lee Soo Hyuk), who comes from an affluent conglomerate family, plans to steal oil from an underground tunnel in Korea. He hires ‘Pindol’ (played by Seo In Gook), the best driller in the country, and his team.

But with everyone involved in the project harboring a different motive, their plan starts to go haywire.
