Train to Busan (2016)
I’ll take you to mom no matter what. – Seok Woo
A leak at a biotech plant inadvertently results in a zombie apocalypse, which spreads rapidly across the country. The passengers of a KTX train are seemingly the sole survivors as the train chugs through empty and desolate stations. “Train to Busan” follows the story of a workaholic single father Seo Seok Woo (Gong Yoo) who has to protect his daughter Su An (Kim Su An) as they travel with a group of survivors onboard the KTX. After learning that Busan had been established as a quarantine zone, the group of survivors make plans to go to the city in the hopes of reaching a safe zone. (Source: Soompi)
