Synopsis unveiled for sequel to hit thriller 'Train to Busan'

A synopsis for the film "Peninsula" ― a sequel to hit 2016 zombie movie "Train to Busan" ― has been unveiled in time for the new film's release in July.

The long-awaited blockbuster picks up from four years after the plot of "Train to Busan," placed in a post-apocalypse setting.

Directed by Yeon Sang-ho, the story revolves around Jung-seok, played by Kang dong-won, who goes on a mission to escape the isolated, zombie-hit peninsula.

The film, with a budget of about 20 billion won ($20 million), has been making a buzz since news of the sequel's production was announced.

"Train to Busan" has won multiple awards including at the Baeksang Arts Awards and the Blue Dragon Awards.
