Animation maestro Yeon Sang-Ho‘s first live-action feature, Train To Busan a.k.a. Busan Bound, its teaser was released last week. Starring Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-Seok, Jeong Yu-Mi, Choi Woo-Shik and Ahn So-Hee, it directly follows the events of Yeon’s third animated film Seoul Station ( which is currently in post-production) , as a zombie plague grips the passengers on a train heading from Seoul to Busan.
Director Yeon broke onto the scene with the animated title The King of Pigs, which netted numerous awards at domestic and international film festivals. Train To Busan will feature as a midnight screening at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, according to KOFIC.
Heart-throb Gong Yoo, who proved his box office clout with the spy thriller The Suspect, plays a father trying to save his daughter from the zombie virus that finds its way on to the train bound for Busan.
Train To Busan is expected to bow during the summer.
