Sequel to the 2016 South Korean zombie film Train to Busan (2016).
Peninsula takes place four years after the zombie outbreak in Train to Busan. The Korean peninsula is devastated and Jung Seok, a former soldier who has managed to escape overseas, is given a mission to go back and unexpectedly meets survivors.
Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in TRAIN TO BUSAN, the zombie thriller that captivated audiences worldwide, acclaimed director Yeon Sang-ho brings us PENINSULA, the next nail-biting chapter in his post-apocalyptic world. Jung-seok, a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, relives the horror when assigned to a covert operation with two simple objectives: retrieve and survive. When his team unexpectedly stumbles upon survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best-or worst-of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.
In South Korea, a terrible epidemic suddenly breaks out, turning ordinary people into aggressive monsters thirsting for human blood. The zombie apocalypse is spreading across the country with great speed. The infection enters the human body through the bite of an infected creature, and in a matter of minutes turns it into a living corpse, controlled exclusively by instincts. Few daredevils almost miraculously manage to leave the infected territory and find salvation abroad. Jung Suk’s soldiers are among such lucky ones.
Four years ago, he escaped from the hell that reigns in his homeland, but now he is forced to return to fulfill the mission entrusted to him. With a small detachment, he went to the Korean Peninsula, not imagining what awaited him there. With caution, they make their way deep into the once prosperous, and now more reminiscent of a desert, country. He did not expect to meet people here, but, oddly enough, some representatives of humanity managed to survive. They organized small colonies and desperately defend themselves against the constant attacks of bloodthirsty monsters, without losing hope of salvation. A man has his own task, but he cannot pass by women and children who need his help.
