Dong-won Gang and Jung-hyun Lee are the stars of Peninsula, the sequel to director Sang-ho Yeon’s well received zombie thriller Train To Busan (2016).
Set four years after the zombie outbreak, the Korean peninsula is devastated and Jung-seok, a former soldier who escaped overseas is given a mission to go back. To his surprise he finds survivors.
Train To Busan has been on my list of movies I should probably watch for a while now. It’s just that I’m not generally drawn to zombie films . However, due in part to me not wanting to miss out and after the brilliance of the first Korean movie I ever watched (Parasite (2019), I really should make time.
It’ll probably be nice to spend a little time reminiscing about that one time in 2012 when I was there. Not Busan, but Itaewon, South Korea.
Happy Film Loving
