‘PENINSULA - YEON Sang-ho’
Opening Korean Film Festival
Four years after the zombie outbreak, South Korea is still overrun by zombies and quarantined from the rest of the world. Jung-seok (GANG Dong-won) and Min-Jung (LEE Jung-hyun) are given the mission to pick up an abandoned truck in the middle of Seoul within a time limit, in order to escape the peninsula forever. But in addition to the hordes of zombies, they also come face to face with a mysterious military group, Unit 631, who lures them into an ambush. Their violent struggle for survival begins!
Born in 1978, YEON Sang-ho is an animation director who recently moved on to live-action films. He made a live-action debut with Train to Busan, which indirectly follows up on the events of Seoul Station, a zombie apocalypse animation from 2016. Seoul Station also won the Silver Raven at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) and Train to Busan had a theatrical release in Belgium. His new zombie action thriller Peninsula, the sequel to Train to Busan, got invited to the 2020 Cannes Film Festival.
