Seoul Station

Seoul Station
Film info

2016. Directed by Yeon Sang-ho , starring (Voice) Ryu Seung-ryong, Shim Eun-kyung, Lee Joon , 93 mins.

All eyes have been on Train to Busan this year, but fans should also draw their attention to director Yeon’s animated indie prequel Seoul Station, which chronicles the initial zombie outbreak when a homeless man begins to go raving mad around Korea’s main transport hub. Soon a father goes on the search for his teenage daughter who is running around town with her pimp boyfriend. Continuing the director’s gritty style from The King of Pigs and The Fake, Seoul Station uses zombie tropes to allegorise the ugly side of humanity, pitting flawed and selfish characters against one another in a pitch black narrative.
