I gave a try to watch this movie because of Kang Ji Hwan (Lie To Me). I should say that the movie's NOT BORING and there were LOTS of HILARIOUS moments going on 'til the end of the story. Kang Ji Hwan and Lee Hee Joon's (Unexpected You) acting were great and they brilliantly showed their versatility as an actor. I give 7 for the story because there were some parts that read more I think are a little bit misleading, but overall I like this movie.

i will try to be objective but i also will admit to getting a fan girl nosebleed (for the very first time)at the end. Runway Cop is similar to the american movie Miss congeniality but in korea and from a male perspective.
i loved the acting. my oppa, kang Ji hwang is an amazing actor and played both the nasty looking and suave looking sides very well. The supporting actors did very read more well, Yuri was convincing. The story concept was realistic, however the details were not. In most stories Ji Hwangs character would have been fired before the halfway point but as the main character in the story, he could do what he wanted.
It is a comedy and it makes you laugh, but be prepared to watch some slapstick because thats what it comes down to. although there are poor jokes, penis innuendos, and other tom foolery, runway cop is chuck full of man eye candy (with their shirts off!!) so watch just for that.
As a Ji Hwang fan this is a must see! seeing him in a fat suit with great fat makeup made me love him even more. I squealed the whole movie and at the end got a bloody nose. no matter how poor the storyline was it was a worthwhile watch for me and i will probably rewatch the end a few times.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both are comedy. The actors are funny and the pairs are cute. Both guys have their own unique trouble to deal that are both initiated and resolve because of the female lead.
Recommended by nana858
Both are heavily comedic films following undercover cops and there oftentimes hilarious mishaps and antics. Recommended for anyone in the mood for lighthearted, relaxing films that leave you with a smile.

    Runway Cop não deixa de ser cômico, tem falha de continuação de cenas, mas não deixa de ser cômico. É um filme que está dentro da média, tem melhores outros piores que ele, Runway Cop se destaca pelo diferencial no enredo, nada daqueles enlatados clichês filmes hollywoodianos que tem começo meio e fim previsíveis.
    No geral é recomendável assistir, ao menos para descontrair e rolar de rir.

    I happen to saw a clip of Park Bo Gum's abs in this movie on Soompi's Moonlight Drawn By Clouds forum...this made me curious enough to check out this movie, even if Bogummy's role is short here lol

    on Viki now. Cute funny show with either some sloppy writing or bad editing. Laughed until I actually snorted! Some lapses of logic and a choppy story line made for an incoherent story, Still I think the last 5 minutes totally made up for it and I'd love to see it in slow mo a few times. KJH's makeup and costumes were gasp worthy! Wow, how makeup and styling can change a person! Stellar co-stars and some walk on's from some of Korea's most famous models including Kim Woo Bin and I think I saw Stephanie Lee!

    Are you sure the actress playing the "young Young Jae" is the one listed here? I mean, she's only 9 years old, and in the film she plays a teenager, and LOOKS as a teenager

    I am happy I watched this, but at the same time sad. I dropped half a 2 litre bottle of appleade due to laughing at a scene in this. Amused, but with less drink which I had specifically saved away to drink because I like it! On a less depressing note (yes, it is really depressing), it's a pretty good movie!

    I loved the fact romance wasn't the main focus of the movie.
    Very much based on the character and their roles, and it's very enjoyable.
    The acting was crazy amazing Ji Hwan is an amazing actor. No questions about it. <3
