The Golden Holiday (Korean국제수사; HanjaGookjesoosa) is a 2020 South Korean action comedy film written and directed by Kim Bong-Han, starring Kwak Do-won, Kim Dae-myung, Kim Sang-ho and Kim Hee-won.[3] The film follows a detective who takes his family on a trip to Philippines and becomes a murder suspect, only to become further entangled with a criminal organization as he starts investigating the case with the help of a tourist guide, in order to clear his name. The film co-stars Shin Seung-hwan, Shin Dong-mi and Lee Han-seo. Actors Son Hyun-joo and Jo Jae-yoon make cameo appearances. It is director Kim's third film after The Hero (2013) and Ordinary Person (2017). Filipino actor Mon Confiado makes his South Korean film debut with the film shot mostly in Philippines.[4]

The film was originally scheduled for release on August 19, 2020, but was indefinitely delayed due to resurgence in the COVID-19 cases.[5][6][7] It was released theatrically on 29 September 2020.[8]


Hong Byeong-soo, a Daecheon detective, takes his family to Philippines on his 10th anniversary, with the hidden intention of tracking down his old friend Yong-bae who scammed him and got away with it a few years ago. In Manila, Byeong-soo finds himself framed for a murder and sets out to prove his innocence by investigating his own case with the help of Man-Cheol, a tourist guide. With their investigation not going well, Byeong-soo then discovers Yong-bae in prison and learns about a case surrounding "Yamashita's Gold". As Yong-bae offers him a good share of gold, Byeong-soo becomes embroiled in the case.
