A Super Trio comparable to the Avengers!

In The Accident Detective 2: In Action, actor Lee Kwang-soo who plays ‘Yeo-chi’ a.k.a. ‘Hopper’, an ex-agent of the Cyber Crime Unit, joins the detective duo ‘Kang Dae-man’ (Kwon Sang-woo) and ‘Noh Tae-soo’ (Sung Dong-il)

‘Kang Dae-man’ will be in charge of deduction while ‘Noh Tae-soo’ will do hands-on investigation. The newly added member ‘Hopper’ will complement the team with his passion, extreme sloppiness, and exceptional talents in cyber investigation.

The great chemistry of the trio can be found within the movie and at the shooting site. Kwon Sang-woo proudly said, 

“My acting has improved greatly with the help of Sung Dong-il, other fellow actors and staff throughout the filming of the sequel.” 

Sung Dong-il supplemented, 

“Since we have been very close since the first movie, we could generate greater synergy together. We help each other to act better, rather than just managing our own character.” 

The newly added member Lee Kwang-soo, fitted right in with the original members as if he had been one of them. Lee remarked, 

“Thanks to the generous help and support from my two respectable partners, I could enjoy the filming while learn more about acting from them.”

Director Lee Eon-hee added, 

“In every scene, the three actors not only took care of their own part but also collaborated with each other. Starting from the first day of filming, Lee Kwang-soo fitted in with the original cast perfectly.”
