What's the plot of Netflix's Seoul Vibe?

Seoul Vibe is centered on a group of skilled drivers called the "Samgyedong Supreme Team," who got tangled in a slush fund investigation. The Olympics paved the way for illegal funds to be moved and so chaos in the capital city of South Korea begins.
Who are the cast members of Netflix's Seoul Vibe?
Baeksang Best Actor for Film awardee Yoo Ah In will portray the character of Dong Wook, the top drifter and leader of the Samgyedong crew.
