5 Korean zombie movies that may give you nightmares for days

Korean zombie movies is often overlooked but shouldn‘t be. Here are 5 Korean zombie movies that may give you nightmares for days.

#Alive

Originally an American script written for Hollywood, #Alive was adapted for Korean audiences by its original screenwriter, Matt Naylor, and director Cho Il-hyung. A hit in South Korea when released earlier this year, the concept is a simple one: a zombie outbreak has occurred and a few survivors are holed up in an apartment building trying to survive and continue living a somewhat ordinary life.

Rampant

In an unusual twist, Rampant shifts the action away from contemporary settings and is instead a period zombie thriller. Set during the latter half of Korea’s Joseon Dynasty (1392–1897), the film centres on the imperial court where different factions vie for power – machinations that are brutally disrupted by a zombie outbreak shipped in by European traders. This one comes packed with star power in the shape of popular actors Hyun Bin (Crash Landing on You) and Jang Dong-gun (Arthdal Chronicles).

Seoul Station

Written and directed by Yeon Sang-ho, this is a prequel to Train to Busan, for which Yeon was also director. Despite being an animated feature, Seoul Station is just as visceral as Yeon’s more renowned live action zombie movie and tackles similar class-based issues. The story begins at the eponymous Seoul Station where a father is searching for his runaway daughter, an investigation interrupted by the beginning of a wave of zombie attacks.

The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale

If the above films seem too gory or heavy, The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale is here to inject some levity into the search for tasty brains. In a small rural town, a zombie shuffles into view and is taken in the by Park family. Eventually, this adopted family member – named “Jong-bi”, get it? – bites Man-duk, the family patriarch. However, rather than transforming into a zombie himself, he is rejuvenated by the attack. The Parks decide they can earn some money out of this surprise twist but of course, not everything goes smoothly.

Doomsday Book

An anthology with three end of the world tales (the original Korean title translates to “Report on the Destruction of Mankind”), Doomsday Book features stories about a robot achieving enlightenment, a giant asteroid-sized 8-ball hurtling towards Earth and a zombie rampage. The latter, directed by Yim Pil-sung, feels distinctly relevant in 2020 with its message that our food and eating habits could be a source of lethal danger, especially in the wake of scares about bat soup being the origin of Covid-19.
