YEON Sang-ho’s SEOUL STATION Debuts in Belgium
- Writerby Pierce Conran
With a voice cast that feature RYU Seung-ryong (Miracle in Cell No.7, 2013), SHIM Eun-kyoung (Miss Granny, 2014) and LEE Joon (Rough Play, 2013), Seoul Station features a man who looks for his runaway daughter only to discover she has become a prostitute. Just as he about to be reunited with her, a zombie epidemic breaks out in Seoul.
Director YEON broke out onto the scene with the dark animated drama The King of Pigs in 2011. Following a premiere at the Busan International Film Festival, the film screened all around the world, beginning with the Cannes Film Festival. His follow-up The Fake (2013) was similarly acclaimed following its international bow at the Toronto International Film Festival. YEON’s first live-action feature Train to Busan, which follows the events of Seoul Station, is currently in post-production and expected to bow during the summer.
