Back in 2016, movie buffs were treated to the South Korean zombie-flick, Train to Busan, which gained massive praise and attention from audiences across the globe including here in Malaysia. Remember when the LRT broke down and commuters had to walk to work? That inspired this parody poster of the movie:
A few months after its release, a sequel for the film was confirmed by the lead actor, Gong Yoo, who shared this statement onto his personal Twitter profile:
When he first made the announcement, it was unclear whether a sequel had actually been green lit or if Gong Yoo was simply teasing fans of the movie. Those same fans will be very happy to know that a sequel called Peninsula is definitely in production after several photos of the movie were released alongside an official Instagram profile to boot.

In an article posted by Screen Daily, director Yeon Sang-ho talked about the film’s setting:
“It takes place four years after Train To Busan, in the same universe, but it doesn’t continue the story and has different characters.”
He also noted that in the film, “government authority has been decimated after the zombie outbreak in Korea, and there is nothing left except the geographical traits of the location – which is why the film is called Peninsula.”
An official release date is yet to be announced but according to its Instagram profile, fans should expect the movie to drop sometime in Summer 2020. To stay updated, follow Peninsula‘s IG page for the latest information.
