'Peninsula': the sequel of 'Train to Busan' does not continue the story of the original, but is set in the same universe

Thanks to the ‘Parasites’ Bong Joon-ho the Korean cinema is raging today. The great revelation of the Oscar-2020 has opened the industry of the asian country to a huge amount of new viewers that will be able to discover delicacies such as ‘the Train to Busan’; the amazing tape zombie, directed by Yeon Sang-ho’s and they went crazy to the public at the Festival of Sitges 2016.

the joy of fandom, a couple of years ago, it was announced that the director and writer already working on the script of a sequel. Today, thanks to the media ScreenDaily we have known that ‘Peninsula’ —so called— will not continue to what is seen in the ‘Train to Busan’ original.

as he unveiled the own the own Yeon, who has made it clear that “‘Peninsula’ is not a sequel of ‘Train to Busan’ because it is not a continuation of your story, but it happens in the same universe”. A statement that invite you to think of the formula used by Danny Boyle and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo in the excellent ’28 days later’ and ’28 weeks later’.

today, ‘Peninsula’ is at the stage of post-production, has counted with a budget of close to 16 million —the double that of its predecessor— and is expected to premiere in land in south Korean throughout this 2020 —with a bit of luck we will be able to relish in Sitges next October. In the absence of further developments, I leave you with the synopsis film.

“‘Peninsula’ is set four years after the zombie outbreak that plagued the protagonists on a train advancing at full speed towards Busan. The Korean peninsula is devastated and Jung-seok, a former soldier who has managed to escape out of the country, receives the mission to go back and, unexpectedly, to find survivors”.
