Train to Busan. Where do I even start?

Released in 2016, the Korean zombie flick went on to enchant critics and casual movie-goers alike with its seductive mix of thrills, desperation, zombies and emotions.

Small wonder why it became the 10th-highest grossing domestic film of all time in South Korea, and a generator of $90+ million in the box office. Truly, it was a blessing.

But there’s just one thing bothering me, us, about it. And lest you’re wondering, that singular thought would happen to be:

“WHERE THE HELL IS THE SEQUEL?”

2020’S THE YEAR, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

If you’ve been craving for the sequel more thirstily than you did for Avengers: Endgame, you’ll be delighted to know that we finally have some conclusive deets about the upcoming film!

Titled ‘Bando’ or literally “peninsula”, the sequel film of the hit zombie apocalypse action film will deal with the Korean peninsula 4 years after the events of ‘Train to Busan’.

As it turns out, the entire peninsula has morphed into an uninhabitable wasteland 4 years after the zombie takeover.

But pockets of humans still remain trapped and are fervently awaiting rescue.

The Cast

Director Yeon Sang Ho will be returning for the sequel film, while actor Kang Dong Won will be taking on the main role in ‘Bando’. According to allkpop, the actor’s expected to put up a “fearsome fight” against the brain-craving monsters we all know and love.

Meanwhile, actress Lee Jung Hyun will be stepping into the shoes of Min Jung, who’s apparently a strong-willed survivor in the peninsula equipped with both unending hope and leadership.

As for the rest of the cast, child actress Lee Rae has been cast in the role of Joon Yi (please don’t be a repeat of the first film), while veteran actor Kwon Hae Hyo will be taking on the role of the oldest surviving member of Min Jung’s crew, Kim Noh In.

And last but definitely not least, versatile actor Kim Min Jae and rookie star Goo Kyo Hwan will be playing important roles within the peninsula’s rescue forces.

Filming Has Started

According to reports, filming for ‘Bando’ commenced on 24 June, and it’s expected to be released in cinemas sometime next year.

And so… now what?

Well, for now, I guess we can only wait.

If we could do it for Avengers: Endgame, surely we can for Bando as well!

Though of course, you can always revisit old memories in this trailer for the first film…

That should keep your appetite satiated until next year, hopefully.
