‘Peninsula’ a sequel to ‘Train to Busan’ premiered last Thursday

Train to Busan was a 2016 South Korean super hit action-horror film directed by Yeon Sang-ho and starring Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi, and Ma Dong-Seok. The film mostly takes place on a train to Busan as a zombie apocalypse suddenly breaks out in the country due to virus leakage from a corporate company. It soon infects almost all of the city, and the only safe people are the ones on the train. The film’s focus is on the struggle of these passengers trying to get to the only safely guarded city that is Busan.

The film was a massive Korean blockbuster, and due to its international appeal, it was premiered in the Midnight Screenings section of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on 13 May. After this, the western audiences started watching the film, and the film was soon in the eyes of all the film lovers worldwide and received love and respect for the Korean film industry all over the globe.

Four years after its release sequel of the film premiered in Seoul. Seoul is the same city where the train in the movie initially starts. The same amount of time (4 years) has passed in the film, and the plot is based on a soldier and his team battle hordes of post-apocalyptic zombies in the wastelands of the Korean Peninsula.

“I tried my best to deliver a universal message through a film which people of all ages could watch. I’m hoping ‘Peninsula’ becomes something for everyone to enjoy at the theater during this COVID-19 situation,” director Yeon Sang-ho said during a press conference held Thursday in Seoul.

“We have prepared for the film’s July release since last year, and although there have been unexpected situations, we decided it was right to go as the original plan. Being at a press conference, I am reminded of the good days when the cinemas were fully packed with audiences. I sincerely hope this film could help revive the film industry.” Yeon said.

The film hits South Korean theaters on Wednesday. We hope the English version of the film also premiers soon so that the viewers globally can enjoy the movie.
