Korean Trailers Trailers

Trailer: #ALIVE by Jo Il-hyeong

The Korean film industry has done rather well with the zombie genre. They put them on a Train headed to Busan, placed them in the Joseon period in “Rampant” and the Netflix drama “Kingdom” and domesticated one in “The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale”. Now, it seems the zombies have trapped people in buildings in 's debut film “#ALIVE”.


A city is infected by a mysterious virus, which causes the city to spiral out of control. Joon-Woo and Yoo-Bin struggle to survive in an isolated apartment complex from those infected with the virus. Everything including internet, phone, and electricity has been disconnected around the apartment.

The film pairs a blonde Yoon Ah-in (“Burning”) with (“Heart Blackened”) for the first time. It is scheduled to release in June, 2020.

Please Note: This trailer is best viewed on a handheld device, like a mobile phone or a tablet.

Rhythm Zaveri

Hello, my name is Rhythm Zaveri. For as long as I can remember, I've been watching movies, but my introduction to Asian cinema was old rental VHS copies of Bruce Lee films and some Shaw Bros. martial arts extravaganzas. But my interest in the cinema of the region really deepened when I was at university and got access to a massive range of VHS and DVDs of classic Japanese and Chinese titles in the library, and there has been no turning back since.

An avid collector of physical media, I would say Korean cinema really is my first choice, but I'll watch anything that is south-east Asian. I started contributing to Asian Movie Pulse in 2018 to share my love for Asian cinema in the form of my writings.
