Check out some new images from the Train To Busan sequel


Peninsula is the name of the sequel to the excellent Train to Busan. Written by Park Joo-Suk, it is directed by Yeon Sang-Ho.

Peninsula is set four years after the ending of the first film. The Korean peninsula is devastated and Jung-Seok, a former soldier who has managed to escape overseas, is given a mission to go back and unexpectedly meets up with survivors.

The sequel will star Kang Dong-Won as Jung-Seok, Lee Jung-Hyun as Min-Jung, Lee Re as Joon, Kwon Hae-Hyo as Kim Noh, Kim Min-Jae, Go Kyo-Hwan, Kim Do-Yoon, and Lee Ye-Won.

ScreenDaily had the new photos.

“The scale of Peninsula can’t compare to Train To Busan, it makes it look like an independent film,” says Yeon. “Train To Busan was a high-concept film shot in narrow spaces whereas Peninsula has a much wider scope of movement.”

“The idea of being able to build a post-apocalyptic world – which would be sort of savage but also in a way like ancient times, or like ruined modern times, with rules of its own – was interesting to me.

”There could be many stories that could keep coming out of that world. Destroyed, isolated, extreme, but with hope of escape and humanism, and the way world powers would look at this place. There could be a lot of material with a lot of greater significance.”

Backed by NEW, sold by Contents Panda and produced by Redpeter Films, just as Yeon’s Train To Busan and Psychokinesis were, Peninsula is set for a summer release in South Korea.
