With a career rapidly on the rise, NIS agent, Tae Joo (Lee Sung Min) has made a name for himself as one of the best of the best. Eager to gain his next promotion, Tae Joo volunteers to take on a mission to protect a very special Chinese guest. Little does he know, his VIP charge is a pampered panda named Ming-Ming. Terrified of animals, Tae Joo is less than thrilled by his newest assignment but he pushes aside his fear in order to get the job done. A fairly easy mission, things should have gone smoothly but when Ming-Ming is kidnapped by an international terrorist organization things get wildly out of hand. In pursuit of the criminals, Tae Joo is rendered unconscious. Eventually coming-to, he quickly learns that he now possesses the ability to talk to animals. Unable to find any human witnesses to the crime, Tae Joo turns to the only ones who might be able to help him: the animal residents of the local zoo. Finally finding a lead to go on, Tae Joo soon realizes his best bet for solving the case is to team up with a retired military dog named Ali. Determined to find the missing panda, the unlikely partners will stop at nothing to track down the criminals and ensure Ming-Ming is returned home safely. A wild and wacky romp, “Mr. Zoo: The Missing VIP” is a 2020 crime comedy film directed by Kim Tae Yoon.
