The Zombie Apocalypse Hits Korea in ‘Train to Busan’ (Trailer)

Epic action/thrillers are becoming a global trend, with Norway and Russia getting in on the action. Now, it’s Korea’s turn as they’re bringing a zombie virus ride at bullet train speeds…literally!

Enter Train to Busan, a film about an unknown virus that erupts in Seoul and causes aggression and violence in those it infects. A group of survivors board the KTX bullet train that is headed to Busan, the supposed only safe refuge available. However, their trip isn’t as easy as sitting back and taking the ride…

Directed by Yeon Sang-Ho, Train to Busan stars Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-Seok, and Jung Yu-Mi.

      actually this movie looks exactly like a Korean version of Pitt’s WWZ (and i mean that in a good way!). i’m excited for this movie! it looks intense.

        According to the reviews from Cannes the film seems more like a cross between Dawn Of The Dead (2004) and Snowpiercer (2013).

        That sounds awesome on so many levels!

  • I love the zombie pile set pieces! And since it is coming from South Korea, i am pretty sure direction and tension moments will be great!

  • Alanmac

    Hated WWZ but not because of comparisons to the book. It was just a shitty movie for me. I do like the “ant herd” zombie scenes in it tho so this one is something I’ll be interested in seeing.

    “… an unknown virus that erupts in Seoul and causes aggression and violence in those it infects …”

    Hmmm … I think this virus exists and has visited us Koreans every once a while. It sounds like the same virus responsible for the epidemics during the late 19th century, as well as the one that raged throughout the forced illegal Occupation of Korea by the Imperial Japan, not to mention the post-war period 1955 – 65, and it also silently raged throughout the illegitimate fascist rule of the first Parkissimo.

    I am personally not all that surprised that it is raging again in the post-Sewol disaster Korea under the thumb of Ms. Parkette. I don’t think this virus has ever actually gone into remission, now that I think about it, since most of our males are infected by it and have demonstrated a great difficulty keeping it in check against their females and children and household pets … and underlings and the handicapped and the elderly … and the poor and the unfortunates … and schoolgirls and the “loose-looking” women, by which they mean someone who gets their pulses racing … and the street signs … and doors … and tables … and drinking vessels …

    Some women apparently enjoy raising the Virus Boys.

    CRRRRRAAAAAZZZZY stuff … Almost unbelievable.
