Here's Everything You Need to Know About the ‘Train To Busan’ Sequel
In 2016, a Korean action and horror film Train To Busan was released. Up to this day, watching it will still keep you at the edge of your seat. Imagine getting stuck in a train full of zombies chasing you, that’s scary AF. But seeing Gong Yoo made the jump scare and mini heart attack moments worth it.
This year, director Yeon Sang-ho released a sequel entitled Peninsula. Here are some things you need to know about the movie if you loved the OG (spoiler alert, fyi):
They name it Peninsula because there's nothing left after the zombie outbreak.
According to director Yeon Sang-ho, “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."
It's set four years after the *outbreak* in Busan.
The sequel takes place four years after the events that happened in the first film.
But it's NOT a direct sequel to Train To Busan and has a whole new set of characters
It centers around a group of people trying to escape a zombie-infected Peninsula while encountering a group of military soldiers who will become a bigger threat than the actual zombies. With Kang Dong Won as Jung Suk and Do Yoon as Chul Min Kim as the main characters. Yup, Gong Yoo is out. He died in the first film, remember?
The production had a budget of $16M
It's almost twice the budget of Train To Busan. According to Soompi.com, The detailed background of the film has been worked on for "nearly a year by director Yeon Sang Ho and his team of 250 visual effects producers. To tempt the zombies who are sensitive to light and sound, the film will utilize extravagant RC cars and car chasing to heighten the pace of the plot and intensity." So it means that the cinematography of Peninsula is reaaaally good.
Peninsula premiered in Korean cinemas on July 15 but no dates for the worldwide premiere have been released yet.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
