by: Veronique posted: 1 year ago


Epic thrillers are currently a hot topic, because in countries such as Norway and Russia they have because huge hits. Now it is South-Korea’s turn! At the end of July one of the most anticipated movies will be released in South-Korea: The train to Busan. Even though it already premiered at the Cannes film festival in France, it will officially be released on the 20th of July. This movie is so unique in Korea, because this is a zombie themed movie and there haven’t been many before this one. You could possibly count them all on one hand. The few that are out there didn’t have good reviews and were really cliché. After the teaser was released fans were extremely excited. If you haven’t watched it yet, watch the video and see why!

Before there were teasers and trailers released, the film makers released a short summary of the plotline.

“As an unidentified virus sweeps the country, Korean government declares martial law. Those on an express train to Busan, a city that has successfully fended off the viral outbreak, must fight for their own survival…

453 km from Seoul to Busan. The struggle to survive by those who have others to protect! Get on board to stay alive!”

I think this gives a clear indication of what the movie is going to be about. So far it has receive extremely good reviews and is very popular, not only in South-Korea, but also because of the Cannes film festival abroad. The cast includes actors such as Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-Seok and even hallyu star Ahn Sohee. This cast is sure to guarantee for the best movie of 2016.

What do you guys think? Will this be a worldwide hit or a fail?
